Monday, May 18, 2015, from 2 to 3 p.m. ET.
Join Betheny Gross, senior research analyst and research director at CRPE, for an Education Week webinar on helping parents navigate the school choice process.
In cities where traditional school boundaries are fluid and more options, such as charters, have entered the mix of K-12, selecting a school is an increasingly complex endeavor for parents. Recent research shows that an abundance of school choice doesn't guarantee access, and many parents in high-choice cities struggle to find adequate information, transportation, and, ultimately, the right school for their children. But some cities, like Denver, are leading the way in practices to help ease the burden on parents, such as universal enrollment systems and partnerships between districts and charter schools to assist parents in making informed choices. Our guests will discuss the realities, research, and practice of guiding families through choice.
