DFER Statement on Clinton Announcement


DFER National Board of Advisors Chair welcomes Clinton’s announcement that she will seek the presidency and highlights her commitment to improving public education 

Today, Democrats for Education Reform (DFER) National Board of Advisors Chair and former Lieutenant Governor of Colorado Barbara O’Brien released the following statement:

“We join Democrats and Americans around the country in celebrating Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she will seek the Presidency. Hillary Clinton has a proven track record of looking out for students—from her days as Arkansas’ First Lady when she spearheaded efforts to reform and improve the state’s public schools through to her efforts as U.S. Secretary of State to stand up for the right of every child to attend school. We are hopeful that she continues that strong record, and carries on President Obama’s legacy of promoting quality teachers and benchmarks that give every student a chance to succeed no matter their background.”
