Today, The New York Times published an article detailing the failure of the parent trigger law. In fact, it even quotes the law’s creator giving an analysis of the causes behind its failure that pretty much echo the critiques that opponents of the law (see The Best Resources For Learning Why The Parent Trigger Isn’t Good For Parents, Kids Or Schools) have made since it was enacted.

In fact, the end of the parent trigger may be one of the few educational predictions I made for this year that might actually end up being accurate.
