Opinion: By meeting in secret, Denver Public Schools damaged public trust

The Colorado Sun: The ongoing lawsuit filed by several Denver news organizations against Denver Public Schools reveals a deepening transparency crisis, highlighting serious concerns about accountability and governance within the district.

The court’s recent denial of DPS’s request to withhold the recording of the Board of Education’s closed-door meeting March 23 underscores the urgent need to address the district’s lack of transparency. This case not only exposes a violation of state law but also raises questions about the district’s commitment to open and responsible decision-making. The public — and therefore  the news media — has a right to demand greater transparency and accountability from DPS, as these issues directly impact the education and safety of our students.
