The Department of Education has released this helpful parental guide for choosing a child's school. The pamphlet discusses the myriad school choice opportunities that are beginning to take hold and directs parents to look at charter schools, vouchers, private scholarships for low-income students, and home schooling. It suggests what a parent should look for in a school and provides ample resources for school-specific research. Most important, it tells parents what rights they are entitled to under NCLB, serving as a bill of rights for those fighting an unresponsive district or school bureaucracy. You can find it here.
