Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd on education and technology

Senator Chris Dodd was a Forum panelist back in 1994 at a Forum titled Children & Education: A Look into the Future. As we think about Dodd's long career as Connecticut's Senator, here's a clip of him at that Forum, talking about education and technology.

Although this was nearly sixteen years ago, the issues that he and the rest of the panel addressed that evening continue to be of urgent importance.

The Forum's Founding President, Richard Sugarman, remembers Chris Dodd: "It struck me then, and it has struck me since then, that he really cares about children, education and these issues. It never felt like political speak. It felt like it was in his gut and in his heart."
