DPS – A Stealth Election

The Denver Public School Board election has taken on a stealth quality. The anti-reform, pro-union faction believes it’s in their interest to reduce the controversy and align themselves with the charter and new schools’ models, even if it irritates their union supporters.

Hence, forums are quiet, and the black and white contrast toward reform is now colored gray with slogans about helping the kids and opposing the bureaucracy.

The majority faction, with three candidates in the field, also believes calm will allow them to move voters with well-financed appeals to not change the pro-charter reform direction.

The two district races could be close given the low-key quality to the election.  Both ednewscolorado.org and Vincent Carroll in the Denver Post have illuminated the opaque quality of the race.
