What’s the Future of Education Reform in Colorado?

After the school board recall losses in Jefferson County, the current turmoil with the Douglas County school board, recent voucher cases before courts, the growth of charter schools, and challenges over state-wide testing and common core, what is next for education reform in Colorado? What are the issues confronting parents and how do we continue to improve school choice, the quality of our local schools, and the experience for our administrators and teachers?

As many of us prepare to send our children back to school this fall, join the Centennial Institute for an important discussion on education reform with three educational leaders:

Dean Debora Scheffel, Dean and Professor of Education at Colorado Christian University, State Board of Education Member.
Pam Benigno, Director of the Independence Institute’s Education Policy Center.
Brad Miller, JD, Counsel for large school districts and more than 20 charter schools. This included representation of the JeffCo and Thompson school boards from 2013 until December, 2015.

Time: 7:00-8:30pm
Location: Colorado Christian University, Leprino Hall 170
Address: 180 S. Garrison St. Lakewood, CO 80226
