Rep. Ed Lindsey, a Buckhead Republican, has pulled the “parent trigger” charter school bill from legislative consideration amid concerns that Republican Senators would not vote for it, is reporting.

The bill calls for school boards to consider a request for charter school status submitted by a majority of the parents or faculty of a school.

The proposal had passed the House of Representatives and was being considered in a Senate committee. On March 21, Chairman Lindsey Tippins, R-Marietta, announced that Lindsey had asked that the legislation be withdrawn, said.
