It sounds so easy.
Take a vote. Get control of your school. Hire a new staff. Next year, your school is a great success.
The Heartland Institute recommends it for everyone.
This think tank in Chicago helped to write the ALEC model legislation to encourage state legislatures to pass a “parent trigger.”
This is meant to privatize public schools across the nation.
The only thing that the Heartland website doesn’t admit is that there is not a single school in the United States or anywhere in the world where a parent trigger has actually happened.
There is no example of a successful (or unsuccessful) parent trigger.
Please note there is no parent trigger for charter school parents.
Once the trigger is fired, there is no going back.
This has got to be one of the most idiotic of all “reforms” on the table.
No evidence, no experience, just privatization ideology as their guide.
