LA Parent Trigger (contd.)

by

A Good LA Weekly article of the continuing saga of Parents vs. Inept School Board. Highlights:

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.

Now that the community battle has been transplanted to a house of law, things are going a little more smoothly. At this morning’s hearing, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge … Mohr, … told district officials that their method of verifying Parent Trigger signatures … was … unconstitutional, ….

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.

But the fight has just begun. We’ll see you back in court on April 11.
