Privatization of our public schools
To put it bluntly, our current political establishment has supported the privatization of education lock and step. The policies of Betsy Devos have been carried out all across the country, and Denver Public Schools is no different. Millions of dollars of special interest money are thrown in to races in Denver from out of state every year, and this year is no different. We are running a grassroots campaign to flip a board that has been bought and paid for by the billionaire class, but also to spread awareness of the crisis of out of state money influencing our elections right here in Denver. Find articles below to learn how special interests are taking control of our politics.
