Colorado 2023 Public Education Issues Opinion Survey by Region

Magellan Strategies is pleased to present the findings of a survey of 1,550 Colorado registered voters by region. The interviews were conducted from September 7th to 26th, 2023. The statewide results for each question have a margin of error of +/- 2.5% at the 95 percent confidence interval. The survey data were weighted to be representative of the Colorado voter registration demographics. In order to generate relevant insights and opinion data at a local level, we oversampled (additional interviews) in seven regions. These seven regions (see our region map in this post) were created by combining some of the twelve Colorado Association of School Boards (CASB) regions. Again, please review the maps below to understand the CASB twelve regions and the seven regions we created for this survey project.   

This survey attempts to measure and understand Colorado parents’ and non-parents viewpoints and opinions regarding a wide range of public education issues. There were several motives for our team to conduct this opinion research project. First and foremost is the interest in public education issues and policies among Colorado residents, voters, student parents, and non-parents.

The second reason is to provide high-quality opinion research to our dedicated school district clients, friends, school board members, superintendents, assistant superintendents, teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, and teaching assistants. The third reason is to educate and inform the Colorado media, elected officials, Colorado K-12 education advocacy organizations, the Colorado State Board of Education, and the Colorado BOECES Association.         

Any questions regarding the survey findings and methodology can be directed to David Flaherty at or Ryan Winger at Magellan Strategies paid for this survey.
