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.
