Diego Bernal holds up a map of his school stops in District 123.

Last school year, Texas State Representative Diego Bernal visited every public school in his District 123. In a recent post on the website Medium, he shared some of what he heard from teachers on those 55 school visits. Bernal told Texas Public Radio’s Aaron Schrank he hopes that document will be a policy guide for legislative colleagues on both sides of the aisle, who he says talk a lot about how to improve education.
