2012 may only be half over but education advocates are already proclaiming 2013 the year of the student. They recently kicked off an effort to engage the public about the danger of current cuts to K-12 schools and higher education.

KUNC’s State Capitol Reporter Bente Birkeland has more.

Bente Birkeland has been reporting on state legislative issues for KUNC and Rocky Mountain Community Radio since 2006. Originally, from Minnesota, Bente likes to hike and ski in her spare time. She keeps track of state politics throughout the year but is especially busy during the annual legislative session from January through early May.
