Parents speak out over Board of Education dispute

Monday during the board meeting Board President Greg Miller and Douglas got involved in a disagreement that ended with Douglas alleging she was assaulted and filing a report with DPS, who patrols the Capitol area.

He said it is the most ridiculous thing he's ever seen or heard.

The dispute between Supt. Douglas and Board of Education President Miller at a public meeting Monday, elicited anger from some parents.

He says he recently moved his son from a failing Phoenix public school to a private school to improve his education.

He says at a time when teachers do not feel respected by the political system, and feuds like this one are not productive for anyone.

Rebekah Gau with a children education advocacy group says filing an assault report against board President Greg Miller is wasting taxpayer dollars on two fronts.

Gau says she worries about the next three years under Superintendent Douglas.

FOX 10 spoke to Greg Miller; he said DPS had not contacted him about the incident. He said he was moving the microphone and may have brushed Diane Douglas' arm. He said this is the most ridiculous thing he's ever seen or heard.
