When faced with a situation where a parent feels that a school system is not doing all it can for their children, some parents just complain. Some parents write letters and some parents, like Los Angeles parent Bill Ring, act.  Bill got involved.  He was on district parent advisory committee and when that was not yielding results, he started his own parent organization.  When he was not satisfied with his child’s middle school choices he worked with others to start a charter middle school.  The city rejected his application and he applied to the county. When the county rejected the application, they went to the state.  But time marched on, and his child was nearly in high school by the time the process was completed.  Now, Bill is running for School Board in Los Angeles and has started a new parent organization called TransParent®.  Bill Ring- Being quiet is not an option
