DPS teachers prepare for strike; picketing starts 7 a.m. Monday
DENVER -- On an evening normally reserved for grading papers or designing lesson plans, Denver Public Schools teachers had a new project Sunday night: Preparing to strike Monday. Roughly 100 "strike captains" gathered at the Colorado Education Association building for meetings Sunday afternoon, detailing how the strikes will operate. Most teachers are planning on picketing outside the schools where they teach from 7-9 a.m. A spokesperson for the Denver Classroom Teachers Association (the union representing DPS teachers) says the picketing will mostly be contained to sidewalks off school property.
