Two pieces of education legislation are on the table in Tallahassee. Under the Parent Empowerment Act, parents would have the power to fire school staff if they feel the school is not up to par. Under the Parental Involvement and Accountability in the Public Schools Bill, teachers would actually grade parents on their involvement in childrens' schooling.
HB 1191 would give parents power to create a reform plan if their child's school is failing; with enough signatures, fire teachers and administrators or turn the school over to a charter company; move their child out of a classroom if their teacher receives low ratings, and move them into a virtual classroom
Representative Kelli Stargel also filed Parental Involvement and Accountability in the Public Schools Bill, or HB 543, requiring elementary teachers to grade parents on things such as communication, absentee and tardy rates, submission of emergency contact information, and submission of medical records. They'd be marked "satisfactory," "needs improvement," or "unsatisfactory."

This is the kind of chaos and stupidity that's going to erupt in enclaves around the country if states rights get enacted.
When you consider the ``my precious snowflake`` culture and this bill, me thinks it's gonna get real ugly real fast if it passes.
