Now Available: Our 2012 Education Guide

Written by: Beth Shugg
This month, Carolina Parent's 2012 Education Guide arrives at locations across the Triangle. It's important to all of us here at Carolina Parent that our Education Guide offers resources and articles for children of all school ages, including preschoolers. I feel especially qualified to serve as its editor this year, since I have one child in high school, one in middle school and another in elementary school. Like many of you, I'm constantly and completely immersed in local education issues, events andresources.

Our 2012 Education Guide contains our trademark directories of local preschools, private schools, public schools, home school organizations, tutors and more. No other magazine in this area publishes a more comprehensive collection of education resources.

And then there are our feature articles. This year's issue covers the benefits of parent volunteering, the importance of pre-K prep, the advantages of electives, tips for simplifying the private school application process and other topics that will hit home with you and your children.

To celebrate the release of our 2012 Education Guide, we're giving away some great education resources this month. Enter for a chance to win by telling us all about your most rewarding parent volunteering experience. Because we are in the process of transitioning from one blog system to another, we're experiencing problems associated with posting blog comments. For now, you can post your comment here in order to enter our giveaway to win the following books: Feel free to post or email story ideas to me for next year's Education Guide as well.
