The commentary below was written for Boardhawk by two DPS students, Sydelle Buyungo and Houlaye Sy, who were part of the vision team in the Denver Education Vision Project. The Denver Education Vision Project was created based on the belief that there is work to be done to provide an equitable education for every young person in Denver.
RootED Denver and the Open Systems Institute partnered with community members to create a vision for the future of education that would lead to more equitable outcomes through Denver’s public schools’ system. A design team of families, students and community members worked to map their experiences, name bright spots and pain points and set a shared vision for the future of education in Denver.
