Roundtable: Reforms at Denver Public Schools

· Apr. 5, 2010, 3:59 pm

Last week, we heard from Denver Public Schools Superintendent Michael Bennet about reforms he's pushing to turn the district around. Enrollment is down, test scores are low, and the dropout rate is high. Today, we're going to get some reaction to Bennet's efforts. Ryan Warner talks to Patty Lawless, a community organizer with the Denver-based group Metro Organizations for People; Ricardo Martinez, co-director of Padres Unidos, a parents advocacy group that's focused on issues like the redesign of North High School; and Kim Ursetta, president of the Denver Classroom Teachers Association.
