Hickenlooper announces education policy for Colorado

Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper is getting ready to unveil his education policy for Colorado.

He'll be joined by his running mate, Colorado State University-Pueblo president Joe Garcia, at Monday's announcement at Arapahoe Community College in Littleton.

Two years ago as mayor Hickenlooper started a preschool stipend program aimed at improving early education for Denver's education system. The program was financed by a 0.12 percent increase in Denver's sales tax rate.

Hickenlooper also says higher education is one of the state's most pressing issues next year as federal stimulus funding begins to dry up.
