Feb 15, 2013 Comments Off on Parents Deal Major Blow To California Teachers Union With Historic Vote Victory Spit Stixx
Excerpted from The Daily Caller: The Los Angeles Board of Education signed off on a parent-led plan to turn a failing public school over to a private charter company this week — the city’s first use of the controversial “parent trigger” law.
The 5-1 vote granted parents in downtown Los Angeles final approval to convert 24th Street Elementary School into a charter school. The new school will be better equipped to handle demographic changes to the area, parents said.
The parents held after-school meetings at each others’ houses for more than a year in order to craft a worthwhile charter proposal.
