2014 - Miami-Dade County, School Board, District 4 Campaign[edit]

Duysevi Mirza Karan Miyar was the running opponent of Perla Tabares Hantman, who has been in the seat representing district 4 since 1996. Elections were on August 26, 2014. Mrs. Miyar ran on the notion that Miami-Dade County Public Schools needs education reform and to especially help students succeed in the state mandated tests known in the State of Florida as the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Another notion in her campaign was to bring alertness to the changes needed to compete with other districts in the nation such as, New York City Department of Education, Los Angeles Unified School District, and Chicago Public Schools. Miyar lost the election with only 18% of the vote to Perla Tabaras Hantman's 81%.

Miyar, said she is a veteran English teacher who came to South Florida from Turkey. She said she wants to bring an educator’s perspective to the school board. “It’s time for teachers to make a difference,” she said.[1]
