Your Child’s Education: The Most Important Decision You Will Ever Make

For a long time the almost universal choice has been to send your kids to the local school and be done with it, and this choice is still popular today.  But as the Digital Renaissance picks up speed, the quality and diversity of the educational options available continues to multiply and expand.  More and more families continually create varied and individual alternatives to traditional schooling by taking advantage of the free availability of information and the benefits of collaboration.
