Our groundbreaking education blog has a new look and a new name. Preschoolpov is now Let's Talk Schools.
Over the last few months we have been reevaluating our mission and goals:
What is our purpose? We all want our children to get a good education so they can succeed in life. But, what does a good education mean and how can we find it in our community? Where are the good schools? Why aren't all schools good schools? What is our children learning? What should they be learning and how should they learn it?
These are questions we started asking ourselves, our friends, our teachers and, more importantly, our children; things we need to know before dropping our kids off at school.
There are so many school to choose from - public, private, charter, parochial; progressive vs. classical teaching methods; standardized testing; how do we sort through everything?
Let's Talk Schools provides an "insider's view" of our local schools using the shared opinions of parents, students and educators who have experienced the schools first hand. Guided by our ratings and feedback, parents will have the information they need to smart decisions for their child's education.
Additionally, reform of our education system is a tremendous undertaking that's front and center in the national conversation and parent voices are largely missing from the debate. We aim to be that voice in the national conversation.
We need to educate ourselves about the issues and get involved. Let's work with the schools in our local community to figure out what they need to provide a decent education for ALL children, not just our own.
So join us and Let's Talk Schools!
