1. Starting in the Senate
Former California Senator Gloria Romero made her mark in the legislature by leading education reforms to empower parents and provide children with greater school choice. After leaving the legislature, she focused her energies on helping parents utilize the Parent Trigger Law she authored in order to convert their under-performing schools to charter status.

By way of a mutual acquaintance, former Senator Romero and long time educator and veteran charter school operator Jason Watts met to discuss ways to make a lasting positive impact on underserved families, starting with expanding high quality school choice options in Orange County.
