“L.A. Unified Retreats on Parental Power to Trigger Reforms”

A few days ago I wrote about my skepticism and concerns related to the Los Angeles School District’s decision to let parents decide if they wanted their school to be turned-over to a private charter operator (Parents & Schools In Los Angeles). I suggested that if they were really serious about engaging with parents, they would identify a whole lot of other areas where parents could work cooperatively with teachers and administrators — and not just in a questionable “takeover.” I wondered if it was just a move for cheap political cover.

Things seem to be getting crazier and crazier down there, and now the District is backtracking. Check-out Education Week’s piece that came out today and is titled “L.A. Unified Retreats on Parental Power to Trigger Reforms.”
