The School Solution
Getting Canada's Schools to Work for your ChildrenBook - 1995
The average Canadian Child will spend 15,000 hours in the classroom, changes schools six times and deals with dozens of teachers before graduation. Yet most parents know little about what goes on when their children are in the classroom. Following in the same successful style of The Reading Solution, Paul Kropp and Lynda Hodson have created The School Solution--everything parents need to know about the educational systems. Included is information on: How to pick the best school in your community What children really learn at each grade level How to get your child in the best teacher's class next year How to work with not-so-good teachers and principals What to do at home to help your child in school and promote his or her education beyond itThe School Solution tackles tough issues such as declining standards of education and increasing school violence with honesty and practical advice. With sections on special education, working through the maze of educational bureaucracy and using the other educational facilities in your community, parents will find this an indispensable guide.
