What would you do if your dyslexic child attended a failing school and you couldn’t afford to move or pay for private school?
Set in Pittsburgh, Won’t Back Down is inspired by true events of parents taking control of a public school through a recently passed law. The Parent Trigger law, which was passed in California and other states in 2010, permits parents to petition to enforce administrative overhaul and overrule administrators in failing public schools. If successful, petitions allow for parents to direct changes like the curriculum or dismissal of staff and it allows the potential conversion of a school to a charter school.
