The 20-year-old federal education provision you've never heard of: For decades, students have had the right to transfer out of 'persistently dangerous' schools
from The 74
Buried among the hundreds of pages of federal K-12 education law is the "unsafe school choice option," a provision that allows students who were victims of a violent incident at school, or who attended "persistently dangerous" schools, to transfer to any other public school in their district, including charters. Such a policy would seem to tick a lot of appealing boxes for members of Congress, from support for school choice and parent empowerment to a new safety provision in a country grappling with devastating school shootings.
