CO State Senator Discusses School Finance and Reform in Nashville


By Natasha Kamrani, DFER Tennessee State Director

DFER Tennessee (DFER-TN) welcomed CO State Senator Michael Johnston for its second installment of DFER Tennessee’s Speaker Series in Nashville.

Senator Johnston spoke to a large audience about the groundbreaking school finance work being done in Colorado. His message really struck a chord among Nashvillians eager to learn more about education reform and how Democrats around the country are leading the charge to ensure all children have an opportunity to receive a high-quality education.
