Parent Trigger Supporters Attack PTA, Compare Schools To Batterers is the title of a post at my other blog, Engaging Parents In School. It’s about an article in a Los Angeles paper where supporters of the “parent trigger” law seemed to really go over the edge.

Self-righteousness might feel good for a short time, but it’s probably not a good long-term plan for being effective — or for engaging in a fruitful public dialogue.
