Parents Oppose Charter Conversion

Saving a neighborhood school is an article in the Ventura County Star about an attempt to convert a public elementary school. The interesting thing is that the majority of parents — predominantly Latino — oppose the conversion.

I obviously don’t know all the details, and the article may not tell the full story. It does make me curious though — I oppose the parent trigger law that allows a majority of parent to demand a charter conversion. If this story is true, and if the parent trigger proponents are all gung ho about parent power, why don’t we hear them saying anything about what’s going on in Ventura?

Thanks to Kenneth Libby for the tip.
