Parent Trigger Proposal In Michigan

Though the idea of a parent trigger is clearly dying out, a similar proposal is under consideration in Michigan.

The Michigan Association of School Boards, however, does not help the case to oppose the measure when their spokesperson makes comments like this in an email:

“I would rather have the education professionals decide the plan, not just parents who mean well but may not have the background to know what model makes the most sense for a building.”

Statements made with a bit of arrogance do not promote the spirit of cooperation we need to have with parents.
