The Tampa Bay Times reports Friday that Gov. Rick Scott has proposed a “parent trigger” for struggling Florida schools.
The blog says: Rick Scott’s draft legislative agenda includes a proposal to give parents at low-performing public schools the option of converting their schools into charters, the Fort Myers News-Press reports.
This should come as no surprise. Michelle Rhee hinted as far back as February that the Florida governor wanted to put even more control over schools into the hands of parents.

What do you think? Is a parent trigger law a good idea for Florida?
