Colorado Senator Michael Johnston – Up On The Roof!

“Report to the Principal’s Office!”

It’s time to hit the books! Colorado state senator, Michael Johnston (D), was the driving force behind what was perhaps the most controversial and major educational piece of legislation at the capitol this past session, Senate Bill 191, which deals with teacher tenure. The bill pitted the teachers’ unions (such as CEA) and “traditionalists” against reformers on both sides of the aisle, with the reformers winning this battle.

Senator Johnston is recognized as an outstanding thinker and national expert on education issues. He holds degrees from Yale College, the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and the Yale Law School. He has co-founded innovation schools and non-profit leadership programs for urban education issues, and has been an educational adviser to the Obama campaign and administration – quite a resume for a 35 year old!

Note: we will be starting our program segment at 5:45 pm, to make sure we have time for Q&A with Senator Johnston, who needs to leave at 6:30 pm.
