Six mayoral candidates discussed education issues Tuesday evening in a polite 90-minute session that touched on mayoral control and Colorado’s landmark teacher effectiveness law.
The event was sponsored by five non-profit education advocacy groups. They chose the six mayoral candidates who had raised the most money through January. A total of ten candidates are on the May ballot.
The debate was sponsored by Education Reform Now, Get Smart Schools, Colorado Stand for Children, Colorado Democrats for Education Reform , A+ Denver, the Colorado League of Charter Schools and the DPS Foundation.
