A+ Education: Choosing the Best School Option for Your Child
Never before have there been so many educational choices available to parents. There are charter schools, magnet schools, voucher systems, and public school initiatives; religious and non-sectarian private schools; and a variety of home-school options. With so many choices, parents often feel pulled in conflicting directions. Advocates of one choice or another can be rather insistent, if not militant, in their rhetoric. A+ Education presents an objective and thought-provoking evaluation of the school options available to parents. While there’s no silver bullet-a single solution for every situation-William Eckenwiler encourages parents to diligently do their homework. His well-researched and documented guide allows every parent to make an informed decision on whether to choose a public, private, or home school setting for their child.Students are floundering, and flourishing, in every setting across the educational landscape. Eckenwiler demonstrates that the wild card in most cases, however, is the involvement of the parent, and he urges parents, no matter what their school choice, to pour themselves into their child’s life on a daily basis.Teachers and church leaders, as well as students in undergraduate and seminary education courses, will also find A+ Education an invaluable resource.
