We call on legislators to fix the law so that parents and communities can become empowered.
I SUPPORT SB14 & HB1727!
PARENTS SHOULDN'T HAVE TO WAIT SIX YEARS
Currently, parents need to wait for five years of failure to use the law. That is over an entire generation of students. Legislators should lower the eligibility threshold to at least 2 years of “unacceptable.”
GIVE PARENTS A SEAT AT THE TABLE
The law must be so that it gives parents the final authority over the turnaround option for their poor performing school. Parents know their children the best and so by giving them a seat at the table you empower both parents and the larger community.
GIVE PARENTS CLEAR INSTRUCTIONS
As the law is currently written, there is too much uncertainty when it comes its actual use. Legislators should provide more clarity on the petition process.
