Less Than One-Third of Voters Rate DPS’s Performance Positive
Denver, Colorado – The Denver Public Schools’ performance rating had declined during the last decade, and now less than one-third of Denver voters rate its performance positively.

The survey was conducted by Ciruli Associates with 500 likely Denver voters from March 28 to April 12, 2011. The statistical range of error is ±4.4 percentage points.
