The Denver Public Schools are a culture of failure, according to the teachers union.
Teachers at the district’s Denver Public Education Center said that the school system is a cesspool of corruption, ineptitude and failure.
Union president Chris Sisco said that teachers are demoralized and are scared to walk the halls of the district.
“It’s just the culture of the school that’s broken,” Sisco told KMGH.
“We’re trying to be an institution that we can work with, that we’re accountable for, that can serve our students and we can be the model for all other districts.”
Denver Public Schools is the largest district in the country, but it is also a culture that has been corrupted, according union president Chris Solis.
Solis said that his union has repeatedly sent letters to the district asking them to fix the problems that are plaguing the district, but the district has refused.
“They’re not willing to do anything.
They just have a bad reputation in our opinion,” Solis said.
“I’m not saying that this is the fault of the union, I’m just saying they’re not going to do it.”
Solis called the district a “corrupt, dysfunctional, dysfunctional environment” that has created a culture where people are afraid to walk in the hallways.
The union said that Denver Public schools has become “an abysmal failure” that teachers don’t have confidence in the system and that they have no confidence in their own leadership.
The Denver Public School district is not alone in its problems.
According to an investigation by The New York Times, the state of Colorado is home to nearly half of all public school teachers in the nation.
