Across the nation, parents are experiencing a November education tradition – parent teacher conferences. This year, in the wake of implementation of Common Core State Standards and the subsequent testing, parents may find their children struggling in new ways and themselves unable to help them. Other parents with gifted learners may see that their children are desiring more challenges than are now offered. Many parents don’t realize that they have a choice in their child’s education and can take back control. Bridgeway Academy, an accredited homeschool academy, has the tools and experience to help families navigate these new educational waters.
