Protests
Posted: December 6, 2014 by Tom Graham
Program: Colorado Inside Out
We were disappointed to hear Patty's comment on Friday Dec.5, that the Jefferson County students had a reason to demonstrate. Students were told that they would be "favorably looked upon" if they participated in the street demonstrations. The ostensible reason at that time was to support the teachers' sickouts. Those had been arranged by the teachers' union, which hired an organizer with money donated for that purpose from the State union. 44-48 union workers were sent from out-of-state to help. The reason given by the JCEA was a protest against changing the curricula. There never had been any change proposed or discussed. Board member Julie Williams had stated that there should be more positive content in history lessons. The disruptions had been planned a year in advance in order to start a recall to get back union control of the District for compensation reasons. Regarding curriculum changes, revisionist history dictated by the College Board has little information about WW II, George Washington, etc., but emphasizes the bad aspects of our history. We feel that there should be a balance with history of some of our heroes and aspects the great founding and protection against evils provided by the nation. Curriculum changes demanded by College Board are large with the hate-America message. Informed students want this.
Misrepresentation of Colorado Latino Forum
Posted: December 3, 2014 by Lisa Calderon
Program: Colorado Inside Out
I am the Co-Chair of the Colorado Latino Forum Denver Chapter and we are requesting a meeting with the producers of Colorado InsideOut and management of Colorado Public Television 12 about the misrepresentation of our Sept. 24th Public Safety forum. The fact that no one from your show even attended our forum, yet spoke as if they had first hand knowledge of what transpired by holding a "Post Game" show on September 26th titled "Colorado Latino Forum discusses Denver's Department of Safety" without even one Latino at the table displays a serious lapse in journalist integrity and cultural insensitivity. The lack of Latino representation on your show is another issue of contention we seek to address. In the future, if you want to know our position, ask us directly, including reading our recently issued public safety recommendation report: http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_27058917/colorado-latino-group-blasts-denvers-criminal-justice-system. We look forward to your response.
Time machine episodes

Program: Colorado Inside Out
I am a long time viewer and fan of your program. Each Friday I look forward to hearing the diverse opinions from your panel on many of the local issues affecting Denver and the state of Colorado. I am not a fan, though, of your time machine episodes. I really don't want to listen to your panel play acting on issues which occurred decades ago. It may be interesting from an historical viewpoint, but it is not what I tune in to see. I applaud you for your creativity and many people may find it amusing, but it is not what I turn in to see each week. I am disappointed each time you air one of these time machine episodes and I miss out on a substantive discussion of current issues.
