HB 123 Parent & Teacher Empowerment Act

The Georgia General Assembly is currently crafting a parent trigger law, HB 123, the Parent and Teacher Empowerment Act.  The bill will offer parents true power in decision making for their children’s schools and education.  When a majority of parents sign a petition at a public school that is a low-achieving one, they may begin a process to transform that school by either enacting  one of SIX turnaround measures or by converting the school into a charter school.

Significantly, this particular bill enables TEACHERS to organize as a group and initiate the process to transform their school, thus providing teachers with unprecedented power to introduce reforms at their school.
