"Here in Colorado, we depend on our incredible educators to prepare the next generation for success in the workforce and in life. The TLCC survey provides meaningful, anonymous information about the challenges and opportunities educators are facing in our schools so that we can use these results to offer critical supports. On behalf of Colorado, I want to thank you for your service to our children and ask that you participate in this important survey." - Governor Jared Polis


"A new decade is an opportunity to find new, exciting ways to make Colorado the best state for teachers, and the TLCC survey is one of the best channels for teachers to let us know what they need to be successful" - Commissioner Katy Anthes
