Secretary Arne Duncan and Senator Michael Bennet, D-Colorado, visited Denver to see and hear about innovative and successful models the state has used to improve learning. They held a roundtable with a number of state education leaders, where representatives of both rural and urban school presented models they’ve used to promote education reform.

Later in the afternoon, the Secretary and Senator Bennet visited Brown Elementary School in Denver. The school has taken some innovative approaches to education, which has resulted in student achievement gains across the board. The Secretary and the Senator toured a classroom and visited with students.
