20 Ideas for Parents Sick of Waiting for Superman and Tired of Having Their Children Race to Nowhere

What disturbed me most about the much-lauded educational documentary RACE TO NOWHERE was not the outcry of adolescents who explained how school led them to develop anorexia, cut themselves, consider suicide, or require hospitalization for severe anxiety. I knew all that.  What disturbed me was the disempowerment of even the most passionate and devoted parents who have resigned themselves to believing that schools, not parents, have ownership over their children’s education.  

I hear all the time from parents that this is just the way things are so they try to figure out ways to help their children fit into the system.  This is not true.  There are things parents can do.  To follow are 20 ideas for parents who are sick of waiting for superman and tired of having their children race to nowhere.  You can read more about each idea at this booklet which I wrote as a free download to anyone who wants ideas to take back ownership of their children’s learning and lives. 

You can see the entire guide with a description of all twenty ideas below.
