Original Message House Bill 393 would create the Parent Empowerment and Choice Act

More commonly referred to as the Parent Trigger Act. This would give parents three options to change how a school is run. A signed petition from at least 51 percent of the parents could force a school to close and reopen with new staff; force a school to close and reopen as a charter school or force school choice alternatives to be given if the school were to close and a charter school not be formed.

In addition, the bill states that any student who would attend the school under the educational choice option would receive a voucher to attend a private school or another public school.


A similar law is in effect in California.... how is it working for you out in California? It seem like it would cost the state/taxpayer a lot more money.
