Parents Against Prop. 39 Charter Co-Locations
Above, parents from 6th Ave. ES protest outside of Celerity Charter School headquarters in Los Angeles, April 26, 2018.
In 2017-18 school year, the district offered far more schools to charters for co-location. Yet, we drove the number of actual co-locations down. Of the 23 school communities that built high-profile push-back campaigns, 19 of them —over 80% — successfully stopped co-locations. Out of these struggles, new parent leaders flowed into our parent leadership institutes.
