LAUSD school, once a target for ‘parent trigger,’ posts huge gains on latest statewide tests
The results are in from the standardized tests students in California public schools took last spring — and overall, kids across the state scored a little better this year than they did in 2017.
But one South L.A. school has seen much bigger gains.
Four years ago, some parents threatened to file "parent trigger" petitions that would've taken control of 20th Street Elementary School away from the Los Angeles Unified School District. But since a new principal — and the Partnership for L.A. Schools — stepped in, the school has seen its scores rise more than 20 percentage points in both math and English.
