‘Parent trigger’ goes Hollywood

Won’t Back Down — white mom teams up with black teacher/mom to take over a failing school — opens in theaters Sept. 28.

Earlier this week, a judge ordered Adelanto school officials to accept a “parent trigger” petition and prepare to cede control of a low-performing elementary school. The Desert Trails Parents Union is looking for a “partner” to help run the school, starting next fall:  “Under the regulations, this process will be open to anyone – including districts and labor organizations interested in submitting Partnership School proposals, as well as existing non-profit charter operators submitting traditional independent charter proposals.”
