The last few months have been a painstaking uphill battle for Parent Revolution, the group of organizers and McKinley Elementary School parents trying to turn one vastly underperforming Compton campus into a charter school.

When the judge’s deadline arrives, CUSD … [will] have … their verification process … “subject of strict scrutiny,” and — if found … un-thorough — could instead be handed off to a “neutral third party.”
Wow. Neutral third party. What a concept.
