Comments from the Judges

“These are helpful columns that provide interesting perspectives around parents’ interests, and I’m always appreciative of those since they’re relatively rare in education coverage.”

“I really enjoyed this collection. It was really accessible, not too long, not bogged down with statistics and anecdotes, but incorporated both seamlessly. While her opinions were forceful, they were not condescending. It felt like talking to a friend or a group of  parents at a roundtable.”
