Update: Local Board Rejects "Parent Trigger" Petition
Community input is always good -- when it supports the same things you support. Ditto for democracy -- except when you don't agree. The LA Times' Teresa Watanabe has a story out about Compton's just-announced rejection of the parent trigger petition that was supposed to kick off a turnaround effort at McKinley Elementary School (Compton parent trigger: School board rejects parents' petition). The signatures are wrong, the petition is constructed incorrectly, etc. Parent Revolution says it's going to challenge the dismissal though it hasn't responded to specific claims. Here's the actual document in which the local district lays out its thinking (PDF). Image via LAT. Thanks to TW.
