mirth Posted August 31, 2012 Share Posted August 31, 2012 You all ever heard of either of these? ("Won't Back Down" is a new movie. Parent Rev is a group that seeks to empower parents to change or shut down failing schools if their state can pass a "parent trigger" law.) What is the California Parent Trigger? The California Parent Trigger is an historic new law that gives parents in California the right to organize and demand a real change at their childâ€™s failing school. Under the Parent Trigger, parents at persistently low-performing schools can organize and transform their school based on what's good for children, not adults. If they are able to gather 51% of parent signature at their school their district must implement one of four turnaround models (including in-district reforms such as staff changes and out-of-district reforms such as charter conversion). Yes, the school unions are up in arms over both. (sheesh) http://parentrevolution.org Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
