Protest of Betsy DeVos reignites debate on school choice

Critics feel state is giving tax money to ‘unaccountable’ charter schools
Hundreds of Coloradans assembled at the state Capitol on Wednesday to protest a visit by U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. While Devos’ visit to Denver to speak at the annual meeting of a conservative legislative group was the motivation for the protest, it quickly transitioned to a criticism of elected officials who would take funding away from traditional public schools.
Wednesday’s protest at the capitol was organized by Denver Public Schools graduate Tay Anderson, 18. Anderson is running for a seat on the DPS Board of Education in November.
