Another 'Parent Trigger' Effort Ends in Defeat

Hosted by

First in Compton, now in Adelanto — out in the Mojave Desert — elected school boards have rejected petitions by parents to reform failing schools.  In both cases, the signatures of enough parents to "trigger" reforms have been withdrawn at the last minute. Was there fraud, intimidation or outside pressure? What was the role of the teachers' union? Will Adelanto become ground zero for education reform?  Also, movie director James Cameron's dive to the deepest place in the ocean. Will 3-D pictures create a craze for Marine Biology? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, is there unconscious racial bias in America's justice system?
