Americans for Prosperity Foundation Statement on Douglas County School District Election
“Today, residents prioritized our school children”
Parker – Americans for Prosperity Foundation – Colorado State Director Dustin Zvonek offered the following statement in response to the election results in the Douglas County School District election:
“We congratulate Douglas County residents for rejecting the school reform rollback championed by the teachers union. Today, residents prioritized our school children and decided to keep the district’s schools moving forward, rather than sliding back. No meaningful change comes without controversy or without push-back from entrenched interests. But it’s a credit to residents that they could see past the personal attacks and keep their eyes on what really matters, which are the measurable benefits they’ve seen with reform. The failure of union interests to win the debate, or rollback reform, has positive ramifications well beyond the Douglas county lines, since it hopefully will encourage other districts across the state to be equally creative, bold and innovative.”
