In light of the announcement made by MiDian Holmes to decline the appointment for District 4 of the Denver Public School Board, Executive Director Jeani Frickey Saito issued the following statement:
“It’s clear that MiDian encountered tough times and made mistakes as a young single mother. She acknowledged that she has learned from those mistakes. Since that time, she has been a staunch advocate for Denver’s kids, both in her role as a parent of three children and as a leader in the community.
What remains clear is that students in Denver Public Schools deserve powerful voices that will fight to ensure that every child, regardless of which neighborhood they live in, has access to a high-quality education that prepares them for college and beyond.”
