ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has sidestepped the Parent Empowerment Act of 2010 in California known as the trigger law which allows parents to force overhauls of schools that are failing under No Child Left Behind standards. Topics include LAUSD's letter stating that the 2013 federal No Child Left Behind waiver exempted it from honoring the trigger law, and the letter sent to LAUSD by nonprofit Parent Revolution.
