Senior education policy analyst Ben DeGrow gave a presentation on how school vouchers work, with a special emphasis on Colorado’s groundbreaking Douglas County Choice Scholarship Program, as part of a community-sponsored panel presentation on July 18 in Monument, Colo. The event was sponsored by DIRECTION 38! — a citizen group committed to successful schools — to discuss the theme of “School Choice and Building Community Relations,” and hosted at Monument Academy K-8 charter school.
Other panelists included three state legislators, a former State Board of Education member, and the local superintendent of schools. The discussion was moderated by Monument Academy executive director Don Griffin. More information on the event can be found on the DIRECTION 38! website.
