Duffy, an expert and dynamic public speaker on education reform, charter schools, school district bureaucracies, teacher union contracts and community/parent involvement in public education.

Call me Duffy. I am the immediate past- president of the second largest teachers union in the county, United Teachers Los Angeles, and have recently been involved in creating a distinctive charter school model called Apple Academy Charter Public Schools in Los Angeles.

I have a unique story to tell and a perspective on teachers, teachers unions and charter schools, other school reform models and school district bureaucracies, large and small. I also possess a rich background in the school reform movement, through my work as President of United Teachers Los Angeles, with Los Angeles Unified School District, and with community groups.

I understand issues from every perspective based on my history and can be very helpful to you and your organization in overcoming difficulties in working with community groups, teachers, and their unions, if you choose to operate a union or non union charter school or non-charter reform model that puts stake-holders at the center of decision-making. My insight on best practices for administrators can help you work more effectively with teachers and community members for creating partnerships that benefit students. 

I am available to speak on this and related topics. Please contact me at 213-880-3993 or at
