What would happen if every public school in Denver became privatized? What if the teacher’s union were eliminated? What if the Denver Public Schools ignored everything a school community wants?
Think this is a remote impossibility? Think again! It’s time for registered Greens to zero in on what’s happening in Denver’s schools today, and we want to invite you to a community meeting to talk about it.
A panel of speakers will present their views, prescribe their remedies, and take your questions on a variey of issues facing students, teachers, and communities in Denver. Scheduled to appear are: Green Party national co-chair and former DPS board member, the Honorable Andrea Mérida Cuéllar; Teacher and candidate for the position of President of the Denver Classroom Teachers Association, Tommie Shimrock; DCTA teacher and activist Julie Banuelos; and Katherine Murphy, representing the community opposition against the closure of Gilpin Montessori, a DPS public elementary school ordered by the school board to permanently shut at year’s end by the school board… All this takes place with a eye on November 2017’s upcoming Denver Board of Education election – four of seven seats will be contested!
