Andrea Merida, Denver School Board Director running for re-election in Southwest Denver, released this statement in response to the decision of the Denver Classroom Teachers Association to not endorse her candidacy.

“It’s clear that this decision is in retaliation for my vote to support the termination of the ineffective teachers among the more than 200 probationary teachers terminated just three weeks ago. It unfortunately is an action that does not reflect the work of thousands of good teachers in Denver Public Schools, and underscores why DCTA’s leadership represents one of the most substantial barriers to real and meaningful reform in Denver and fulfilling the promise of so many Denver children and families.”
