The Education Guide of Charlotte Parent recently polled some regional Charlotte education experts about what makes a school GREAT. Charlotte School Search partners Rachel Hunt and Suzanne Cormier were happy to contribute to the story: http://www.charlotteparent.com/CLT/Education/7-Factors-Great-Schools-Have-in-Common/
Do you see factors that you want to change in your school? Do you wonder which of our area schools are doing a great job? Have you been working to improve your schools? Did we miss anything? Just call or email us. We are eager to hear the opinions of other education advocates and school volunteers. Let us know your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, while working with Charlotte Parent for this story, we learned that one of our favorite sites, Truth for Teachers, is no longer being sustained. Other sites have stepped into that same content arena. These days, we are following the MeckED site for education and policy news, http://www.mecked.org/
Thank you, Charlotte Parent, for keeping education news front and center with area parents!
P.S. If your children are older and your mind is racing about college applications and decisions this month, we want to remind you that Rachel has a certificate in College Counseling from UCLA. You can track her down at Hunt for College (huntforcollege.net)
