Denver media

Couathored with University of Colorado Regent-at-Large Heidi Ganahl. These days, it’s hard to have a genuine, comprehensive conversation about how best to solve problems plaguing our state and country. Then, things often get “wonky” when you actually try to explain your ideas. Higher education presents a unique opportunity to agree on a problem, discuss straightforward […]

Couathored with University of Colorado Regent-at-Large Heidi Ganahl. If you live and work in Colorado, America’s eighth-most expensive state to live in, you typically need a college degree to get by. Seventy-four percent of all jobs here require it. Colorado is also one of the most expensive to get that degree. Tuition and fees have […]

If there was ever a clear case why Tay Anderson is unfit to be a Denver Public Schools board member, it was made plain Wednesday at a press conference where he triumphantly declared his return to board duties. The announcement came 14 weeks after DPS launched an independent investigation into sexual assault allegations against him […]

On Tuesday night, a massive article dropped on the website Yellow Scene Magazine (YS). It ostensibly provides backstory about sexual assault allegations against Denver Public Schools board member Tay Anderson. The writeup is grossly intimidating to victims who may otherwise come forward with sexual misconduct allegations against him. The article was coauthored by YS publisher […]

Why is the Denver Public Schools board outsourcing everything regarding board member Tay Anderson? And why are they being so opaque about it all? Immersed in public relations disasters and serious legal conundrums, DPS seems unwilling to keep all kinds of jobs in-house. Plus, the district isn’t keeping the public apprised of what’s happening.

I don’t know about you, but when I come home with “single-use plastic bags” from Walmart or (ideally) Target, they are never just “single-use” for me. It’s something I learned from my mom — and my siblings and friends are the same way. I can sometimes get two or three uses out of a plastic […]

“This is wrong and as a student it makes me feel like I can’t (sic) fully trust anyone at my school.” When I saw this comment from one Denver Public Schools student on a petition about board member Tay Anderson, my heart sank. “This is wrong. Someone who does that to KIDS don’t need to […]

Denver Public Schools’ slogan is pretty great: “Discover a World of Opportunity.” Five simple words paint an optimistic and aspirational vision. They presume a valuable, meaningful focus on giving students myriad opportunities to learn, grow and succeed. Unfortunately, it’s just words. DPS doesn’t really care about opportunity anymore. Sure, they say they do – but […]

If you listen to Denver school board member Tay Anderson and his lawyer, Christopher Decker, you might think the media is so “hungry” that it has “run away” with allegations of sexual assault against Anderson. If that’s true, it’s a first for Denver’s media, which have steered clear of any negative press about, or real […]

The year was 2003, the summer between my seventh- and eighth-grade years at Falcon Creek Middle School. We were on our annual vacation visiting family back home in Upstate New York, and my Grandpa Walt took me on a golf outing. On the way back to his house, a very curious thing happened. Grandpa turned […]
