This past Thursday Denver played host to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which included a panel on education reform; “Reclaiming America’s Education Future: Why Obama’s Top-Down Approach is Failing Our Children.” The panel, moderated by Jamie Gass, Director of the Center for School Reform at the Pioneer Institute, included Pam Benigno, Director of the Education Policy Center at the Independence Institute; Candi Cushman, Education Analyst at Citizen Link; the Honorable Bob Schaffer, Chairman of the Colorado State Board of Education; and the Honorable Robert Scott, former Texas Commissioner of Education.

I am an experienced copywriter and content manager. I am also a former intern/research associate for the Education Policy Center at the Independence Institute in Denver, Colorado and have previously blogged for National School Choice Week.
