With the passage of the Parent Trigger law in California last year, activism in education has reached new heights.  Many are critical and feel schools in the US are not producing satisfactory results; however, in the quest to reform education it is clear there are more groups involved than the traditional stakeholders.  How did this happen? Do we attribute this solely to the ever burgeoning size of school budgets?  What are the motivations of educational activists?
