Default Parents revolt against failing schools

ASHINGTON— JewishWorldReview.com | In the Hollywood version of parent trigger laws, motivated parents of children trapped in a failing inner city school join forces to take over the institution and save their children's futures.

In reality, trigger laws, which allow parents to intervene in a struggling school, are a lot more complicated and controversial.

Versions of parent trigger laws have been proposed in at least 25 states and adopted by seven, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. In real life, parent triggers have been attempted only a handful of times.

California in 2010 adopted the first parent trigger law in the nation. Connecticut, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio and Texas, have since followed, according to Josh Cunningham, a policy specialist at NCSL.

In most states, the laws allow parents to petition for change when a school fails to meet certain requirements, typically underperforming for a number of years. The options for parents vary by state but may include replacing a principal, converting a school to a charter school, or closing a school.

It wouldn't be so complicated if folks that are trapped into HAVING to use the public school system staged a "Stu Flu" out keeping their kids home, for a WEEK ~

the schools would come BEGGING for their opinions and input,

since schools only receive tax dollars based upon ATTENDANCE ...
