According to the Wall Street Journal, the Parent Trigger Law that's causing huge controversy in the education community, basically allowing parents to turn what's considered a failing public school in Los Angeles into a charter, may be a harbinger of the future.

Legislators in Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, West Virginia and Maryland tell us they will introduce versions of parent trigger in the coming months.

I haven't done the math yet, but it's safe to say that if it does come to pass across the country, this could have a major impact on the public school system.
