State Rep. Andy Brenner, R-Powell, says he plans to introduce a bil that would allow parents of students attending low-performing schools to put a measure before voters to close, privatize or otherwise transform the school. It’s called a parent trigger law.
(You might remember the concept from a movie that came out last year called Won’t Back Down.)
There’s a version of the law already in place for the Columbus school district. Brenner, the vice chair of the House Education Committee, wants to expand the concept to low-performing schools throughout the state.
