How to Research and Choose a School For Your Child – A Conversation With Peg Tyre
In just one week we will be hosting Peg Tyre at Kidberry. The topic of the night is one that we are all talking about now, “How to Research and Choose a School For Your Child.”
The quality of education in our neighbourhood schools can be shockingly inadequate and recent school reforms are missing the mark. Our system of school choice in New York can be confusing for even the most informed and organized parents. How can we tell the difference between a good school and a substandard one? You need more than just test scores to get the whole story.
Peg Tyre, award winning journalist and author of, “The Good School – How Smart Parents Get Their Kids the Education They Deserve,” will discuss ways for parents to constructively engage teachers and administrators and make critical judgments about their children’s education. Whether you're enrolling for the first time or you are at a school that may not be the right fit, you can gain from this discussion.
Please join us.
