Hundreds of Denver high school students walked out of classes Monday demanding that school board director Tay Anderson resign and threatening to launch a recall campaign if he refuses.

The walkouts occurred at East and North High Schools, where some students met with the school district’s superintendent and board president, while others chanted for Tay to go.



KDVR reports:

“These are the district’s kids who feel scared,” said North High School senior and one of the protest organizers Ashley Robinson. “It’s supposed to be up to our district leaders to ensure boundaries that should never be crossed are never crossed like they have allowed Tay Anderson to do.”

Anderson’s response to ruckus was trademark Tay, claiming as always that he’s the real victim.

The Colorado Sun reports 300 students marched for miles to the Denver Public Schools’ offices for a 40-minute protest over the board’s censure on Friday for Anderson’s “disturbing pattern” of inappropriate behavior and intimidation.

Students say they weren’t comforted or satisfied by the report’s findings, with many condemning Anderson in forceful terms.


“It should not take all of us to make him leave,” one student shouted through a megaphone.

If students would like for Anderson to hear them directly, there’s a school board meeting Monday night where he plans to speak about his political future, which we guarantee does not include buckling to the demands of those he was elected to serve.
