Today 90 percent of America's children attend public schools. It's safe to say that 100 percent of their parent's wish for the best possible education for their child. But how do we achieve this? With the New Public School Parent, Bob Chase, a veteran teacher, leading advocate for public education, and two-term president of the National Education Association, provides parents with a roadmap for navigating today's increasingly complex public school system. Backed by solid data, including vivid, real-life examples - The New Public School Parent covers such topics as: - Facing the standardized test
- Getting the "best" teacher for your child
- Coping with learning disabilities in the classroom
- Making sure your gifted child is challenged
- What to do when your child falls behind
- Becoming an advocate for your child and your child's school "An essential guide for all parents." -James P. Comer, M.d., Yale University Child Study Center
