The June/July issue of Scholastic Parent and Child is out now, and in it are two of my recent articles. The first, "Opting-Out is In, But Does it Work?" contains the opinions of three experts who weigh in on the issue. Pick up a copy at your local newsstand to see the opinions of Bob Schaeffer, Public Education Director for Fair Test: National Center for Fair and Open Testing; Diane Hernandez, Director of Assessment Development for the California Department of Education; and Carol Varsalona, literacy consultant. The second, "Field Guide to the Introvert" offers tips for helping your introverted child thrive in his or her own way.
