Education Policy Center Briefings Bring Out School Board Candidates Across Colorado
During the month of September the Education Policy Center hosted a series of four briefings on key Colorado education topics and local reform opportunities, specially designed for school board candidates. Center director Pam Benigno and senior policy analyst Ben DeGrow gave two presentations at the Independence Institute offices and one each in Colorado Springs and Loveland. Nearly 40 people attended, including a total of 30 school board candidates and members representing 16 different districts from Fort Collins to Pueblo and from Grand Junction to Kiowa.
