Doreen Diaz, lead parent coordinator for the Desert Trails Parent Union had a national audience this past Sunday when she appeared as a guest on the NBC ‘Education Nation” panel discussing parents and teachers.
Sitting alongside her were Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers – and fierce opponent of Parent Trigger laws and parent empowerment efforts -- and Congressman George Miller (D-Calif.), a strong proponent of Parent Trigger organizing.
It was an unfair match. Randi Weingarten had no idea what she was up against sitting next to Doreen – an actual parent who knows what it takes to transform a failing school for her child.
See for yourself! You can watch video of the panel here:
