Colorado Senator Cory Gardner's Pre-recorded Responses to Questions from Education Issues in Focus
This is a pre-recorded video segment created by Colorado Senator Cory Gardner and his office for CO ASCD's Event, Education Issues in Focus: A Conversation with Policymakers. CO ASCD unfortunately didn’t have success in playing the Senator’s video during the LIVE webinar. This is a video of his pre-recorded responses to the questions posed to panelists, and includes his response to a third question, which CO ASCD also, didn’t have time to get to during the livestream event. A very Special Thank you to Senator Cory Gardner and his staff for their time and participation in this CO ASCD event.
