In this Web-exclusive video, Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), discusses the future of the teaching profession in Wisconsin and beyond as it relates to ongoing protests in that state.

“What we’re seeing is the result of commitments that were made over many, many decades that can’t be afforded in a lot of states,” Sen. Bennet says.

“There are important values that seem like they’re in conflict, and what we need to do is figure out, on a state-by-state and city-by-city basis, how to sort through that,” Sen. Bennet continues.

Watch the Web-exclusive clip below, where Sen. Bennet outlines what is needed to ensure high-quality education going forward, and watch the video of his full conversation to find out what more he had to say.
