The Parents’ Public School Handbook: How to Make the Most of Your Child’s Education, from Kindergarten Through Middle School

The Parents’ Public School Handbook is a concise, practical, hands-on guide to the public school system and an invaluable resource for concerned parents everywhere.

  • Advocate for school change when warranted
  • Understand “teacher-speak”
  • Make the most of the parent/teacher partnership
  • Make sense of standardized tests
  • Be their child’s educational ally
  • Nurture learning at home
  • Deal with learning, behavior or motivation problems
  • When to intervene—and when to leave well enough alone
