Parker Baxter, director of SPA’s Center for Education Policy Analysis, is quoted in the Chalkbeat story “With all ballots finally counted, the outcome is clear: A return to differences of opinion on the Denver school board” that was posted Nov. 9, 2017.
Baxter said that the major takeaway is not that union-backed candidates won two seats on a seven-member board, but that the pro-reform members hung onto their majority. “The opponents of that agenda needed to win all-out here,” Baxter said. That they didn’t, he said, means the debates may be more heated but the outcomes will be the same.
