My Dream School-Information System
Original article in Education Week's Rick Hess Straight Up by Bill Jackson.
My dream school information system would provide insight into whether a particular school would help my daughters realize my aspirations for them (see Tuesday's post) and as well as shed light on many of the aspects of schools I look for on a tour (see Wednesday's post).

2. School climate and culture
3. School program and curriculum
4. Parent and student reviews
5. Principal interview
