It’s hard not to be pleased for the parents at Desert Trails Elementary School in Adelanto, California, especially given the ins and outs of their efforts to change things at their school. The Adelanto parents succeeded in their parent trigger efforts yesterday. The group Parent Revolution has supported them and that’s been important to the on the ground capacity to be diligent about this. But it also raises the question of what happens when 50 or 100 schools try this, at once? Is the capacity there to support them, or does this have the potential to be a recipe for chaos if it catches fire? (Especially if people decide to DIY and eschew established providers/managers).
