STRAIGHT TALK ABOUT SCHOOLS TODAY - UNDERSTAND THE SYSTEM AND HELP YOUR CHILD SUCCEED
Product ID: PAR-006
Our schools are changing, and have never seemed so confusing as they are today. The focus is on teaching core subject areas and basic skills. Parent involvement is more important than ever, and you probably have a lot of questions. In this book, written in easy-to-follow Q&A style, an award-winning educator takes you by the hand and guides you through the system: understanding how public and private education works in the United States, choosing a school, making sense of grades and report cards, the No Child Left Behind act, standardized tests, your rights as a parent, and more. Includes a glossary of edu-speak terms, resources, and plenty of encouragement.
