101 Questions to Ask Before You Apply To K-12 Schools:
How to Choose the Right School for Your Child
PARENTS NOW HAVE A METHOD FOR THE SCHOOL CHOICE MADNESS; Parents now have a new resource to help them choose from the overwhelming number and types of schools available to their children. 101 Questions to Ask Before You Apply to K-12 Schools: How to Choose the Right School for Your Child is a workbook that parents can carry with them to school tours and visits, use to organize their notes and research, and then narrow down their school options. The questions address public and private school issues, and are organized in the book to allow instant comparison of different schools.
Jill, a parenting writer, has put in hundreds of hours researching types of schools, the process of selecting a school, children’s interests, and more to create a comprehensive guide to asking the right questions. "This is not about which school is the best school," Jill says. "This is about selecting the best school for YOUR child. I worked hard to make the questions neutral, fair, and directed to learning as much as you can about the school where your child will spend so much time."
More than just a resource, the workbook creates a community and empowers parents to make choices rather than rely on rumors or a single factor like standardized test scores. The hope is that everyone will find the workbook useful, easy, and fun.
