What Every Parent Should Know About School

An inside look at what our schools are like today and practical advice for navigating the educational system.

School is our children’s second home. They will spend more time there than anywhere else in their formative years. We all need to talk honestly about the nature of this environment, how it works, and how it doesn’t work. Our kids are depending on us to create a school system where they can learn as well as feel happy.

What Every Parent Should Know About School is an honest, positive, thought-provoking look at what schools are today and what they could be in the future.
