I like this law. Pennsylvania could use more school choice tools.

Though the law allows parents to force a full transition to a charter school, that's not all it does and it's not the only option. Parents can vote on choices that don't bring such complete changes, like merely replacing the staff or an administrator. At an elementary school in Watts, parents used the law last year to force the Los Angeles Unified School District to replace the principal but keep the same teachers.
