Step 2: REFLECT
In Step 2: REFLECT we encourage you to do some old-fashioned navel gazing, and ask what matters. Of course it’s easier to just sign your kid up for school and get on with your day, but if you really consider what your hopes and expectations are, it will help you to own (and hopefully embrace!) your choice in the end. So, in this section you’ll reflect on what makes your child thrive and what your family’s needs are. You’ll also look at your own “educational baggage” and the biases you bring to the table. Finally, we offer some tips on involving your child in the school searching process, and a basic printable tool to help you determine your top priorities.
