Parent Trigger: False Promises, Divided Communities and Disrupted Young Lives - Video exposes Parent Trigger as "a wolf in sheep's clothing"

 

The Education Opportunity Network has released a video, "Parent Triggers: Another Reform Misfires," which looks at the results of the parent trigger attempt in Adelanto, California. The Network found that rather than uniting parents in doing what's best for children, the parent trigger brought deception, division, and disruption to the community.
 
The video tells the story of Adelanto, where a well-funded, outside group, Parent Revolution, bitterly divided the community, disrupted the education of young children, and tricked parents with false promises instead of working to improve the schools.

CTA believes that school reform is a shared responsibility and supports policies and practices that link schools, families, and communities to achieve improvement goals.

Every child deserves a chance to learn and no child succeeds alone.
