LA Weekly announced not only DFER California Chair Gloria Romero's joint letter with Sen. Bob Huff calling on the San Bernardino District Attorney Michael Ramos to investigate the blatant evidence of forgery in the "rescission" copies submitted to the district but also lays out the repeated attempts by parents to work with Adelanto school board:
"The ironic part is that the Desert Trails Parent Union, as organizers call themselves, is trying to collaborate with district officials to create a "partnership school." Its board would consist of representatives from the district, parents, outside educational experts and teachers. They'd work together to structure a more successful model for Desert Trails.
"Yet opponents are using the same old argument: that Parent Revolution and the Trigger are merely a front for private charter-school operators trying to seize educational capital from the public sector.
"'If [district officials] choose to make a decision against us ... they're just in complete violation of our constitutional rights," says Doreen Diaz, a mom on the parent union. 'And if our rights can be so blatantly violated, what chance do our children have for their future?'"
