Promising Development in Public Education

A 2010 California law allows parents of children in public schools to compel changes in their children’s schools.  It takes a petition signed by 50% of the parents of children in a school.  An elementary school in Adelanto, California, has been converted to a charter school, and the threat of similar action has caused other schools to improve.

Perhaps this is part of the answer how to dig our schools out of the abyss into which they have fallen.
