The same day the Los Angeles Times details the disaster of the parent trigger, The New York Times runs an article about an upcoming Hollywood movie about….the parent trigger.
Financed and produced by the same people who did “Waiting For Superman,” the movie takes place in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania doesn’t have such a law). One major difference, though, is that in the movie a majority of parents and teachers have to want to takeover the school. In real life, teachers have no voice in parent trigger laws (though teachers here in California did ask for that inclusion).
As a teacher’s union spokesperson said, “I can’t wait for ‘Vouchers 3-D: The Movie.”
