Parent Revolution

Parent Revolution is a Los Angeles based national nonprofit organization that aims to transform public education rooted in what’s good for kids – not grown-ups – by empowering parents to improve their own children’s low-performing schools through community organizing.

Parent Revolution was integral in creating, passing and implementing California’s Parent Trigger law – the historic right that empowers parents through community organizing to change their children’s school. Under the Parent Trigger, parents at persistently low-performing schools can organize and transform their school based on what’s good for children, not adults. If they are able to gather 51% of parent signature at their school their district must implement one of four turnaround models (including in-district reforms such as staff changes and out-of-district reforms such as charter conversion).
