Democrat special education teacher and political novice Kathy Hoffman has won the race for Arizona superintendent of public instruction, beating an experienced Republican politician.

Hoffman was declared the winner Monday night, beating former California congressman Frank Riggs.

 

    
Hoffman was one of hundreds of current and former educator-activists on general election ballots across the country following this year's #RedForEd protests.
    
Demonstrators called for support of higher teacher pay and increased public school funding.
