Desert Trails Elementary “has been classified as failing for six years in a row, with 70 percent of sixth-graders not proficient in English and math,” the Wall Street Journal reported yesterday. The good news is that last month, a California court judge ruled that the parents in Adelanto successfully had pulled the trigger to force change in their children’s failing school. In addition, the judge commanded the school board to let the parents take control of the school as stipulated by the 2010 law. But the school board has refused to allow the conversion into a charter school.
