This Time It’s True: Democrats for Education Reform to Air Friday

Posted under Education Politics & Independence Institute & Innovation and Reform & School Choice & State Legislature & Urban Schools

Okay, so the last time I told you Joe Williams from Democrats for Education Reform was about to appear on the Independent Thinking television program, it turned out to be a false alarm. Schedules change. Those things are beyond my control.

But now I’ve been promised that this time it’s going to happen for sure. If you’re in the Denver area, you’ll want to tune in to KBDI Channel 12 this Friday, November 21, at 8:30 PM, or next Tuesday, November 25, at 5:00 PM, to watch Joe Williams and our own Pam Benigno discuss the movement to reform education in the Democratic Party and how it might play out here in Colorado. Set your VCR or TiVo, if you must, but please don’t miss it!

(By the way, here’s a link to the hour-long video of the provocative discussion led by Joe Williams at our Independence Institute offices a couple months ago.)

Colorado is the home of the first state chapter of Democrats for Education Reform. And after all, as our own Ben DeGrow pointed out a few days ago in the Denver Post, there is hope for more positive change in the area of school choice and other innovation education reform from the new Democratic leadership in the state legislature.

    So how badly has the Obamas’ decision to sent their daughters to Sidwell Friends hurt the cause of public school reform and the morale of all those parents who kept their children in a failing public school?
