I am a regular reader of the EduWonk blog. (If you don’t read it, you should start)!
Last week, I came across this extremely useful article from Andrew Rotherman (lead writer for EduWonk, Co-founder and Partner at Bellweather Education Partners, and education reporter at Time Magazine). The article details the journey he and his wife took to find the right school for their daughter. It also gives five tips for picking a good school. The article is easy to understand and could be useful to any parent. Well any parent that lives in a place where good schools are readily accessible.
Although I found the article origionally on the EduWonk site, the entire article is actually at Time.com. While I plan on using this article and the data that will soon be available on DESE about Missouri Schools to help MO parents make good choices, for now, I just wanted to share the atricle for anyone who might be wondering, what kinds of things they should be considering when determining which school is right for their children.
