From The Columbus Dispatch: Takeovers of lousy schools by parents never began
By Bill Bush
If the state of Ohio’s transition to new proficiency tests didn’t kill the “parent trigger,” it’s put it on life support.
The GOP-backed law that created the parent trigger was inserted into the state budget bill in 2011 and took effect last year. It allowed parents at 20 extremely low-performing Columbus City Schools to take over buildings beginning this school year if they wanted, and every year thereafter.
