Parker Baxter on Denver School Board Elections

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.
