A Guide to Choosing Your Children’s Schools
& Monitoring Their School Experiences
Winifred Chinwendu Nweke
A Guide to Choosing Your Children’s Schools & Monitoring Their School Experiences is a must read for all current and prospective parents, ideally before their children reach school age. It will help them plan ahead to ensure successful educational experience for their children.
The first part of the book draws attention to various factors parents should, but do not always, consider that affect their children’s education. For example, what school is best for my child: Public or private; Charter, County or City school? Where you buy a home may take these choices out of your hands! The book challenges parents to use readily available information in print and on the internet, regarding school academic history, location, resources, curriculum and extra-curricular offerings, to plan ahead. It encourages parents to make deliberate choices that would position their children in the neighborhoods that would place them in the best schools.
The second part of the book argues for, and illustrates, why parents should closely monitor their children’s experiences from pre-school through high school, even in the best of schools. The book concludes with suggestions on various ways parents can forge effective partnerships with the school/teacher to facilitate a successful experience for their children/ward.
“Really interesting read, which I wish I read before or when the kids were younger.”
— Mr. Reginald Ejeckam
“It is a valuable book for all parents with kids in school or planning to have kids in school. Parents tend to take lots of things for granted...It is a must read for parents with kids at school.”
— Dr. Gershon Ejeckam
“Reading this book brings back all kinds of memories of my days in the public school as a teacher. Parents will gain a lot of insights that will help and guide them with their children’s education. I wish the book was written when my children were in school.”
— Dr. Hope P. Eze
