Choosing a School: A New Guide
June 06, 2006
The education scene in Ohio is brimming with options. But how do parents know which school is best for their children? GreatSchools, a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco, has produced a valuable workbook to help parents in the Dayton area answer that question. “My School Chooser” profiles 62 district, private, and charter schools in the city, and walks parents step-by-step through test scores, and data on teachers, facilities, and safety, among others. The book was developed by GreatSchools, in partnership with the University of Dayton, the Thomas B. Fordham Foundation, and other national foundations, and was distributed to 20,000 Dayton households on June 1 by The Dayton Daily News.
