Focus on Education
Focus on Education was developed to provide educational resources and information to parents of school age children. Dr. Lori James provides information on topics like testing, special education, health concerns, and current trends. Much of the information comes from questions presented by parents, local concerns or national policy. Focus on Education is designed to allow parents better understand education and their role in helping their child to learn.
Dr. Lori James is a 26 year veteran of the Atlanta Public Schools and is the author of two books on education. Her educational career includes degrees in the areas of special education and educational leadership and change, as well as course work theology.
