If you are living in NYC you probably already know navigating the school choices can be daunting. Joyce Szuflita, of NYC School Help, is giving a couple of her popular talks t about the public options in Brooklyn. She'll cover:
- What you need to know
- When you need to know it
- What to do when things go wrong
- Strategies and common practices, including "the 5 things to do to keep from turning prematurely grey"
If you are confused about the difference between "Charter, Magnet and Dual Language or Unzoned programs and what is up with district-wide vs. city-wide Gifted and Talented," (I'm confused!) this may be the talk for you. She doesn't discuss individual schools, but promises you will come away armed with lots of information to begin your school search with confidence. Lots of Q&A. $25 per person/$40 for families.
