In Episode 2, we interview Mark Ferrandino (the CFO of Denver Public Schools) and Henry Roman (the President of Denver Classroom Teachers Association) about the potential Denver teacher strike. These two are key players at the bargaining table and each gets the opportunity to explain their side.
Additionally, we finally decide upon a few names, discuss the closing of the mac & cheese bar at the Denver Whole Foods, and touch on the ~370 people who testified about the comprehensive sex-ed bill.
