When School Reform Fails, We Can Reform The Students- One Child At A Time

Recent guide books now in prototype include the following and can be downloaded from the accompanying

More on the MTAV guidebook

We have written and produced a guidebook for K-12 education in the three jurisdictions adjoining the Potomac River: Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. The book's cover says much:
Pasted Graphic


The book aims to help parents in two important areas of need: To find a better school. And to find supplementary services when the schools fall short (as they almost always do).

All of the tabular information associated with the book, including all of our NAEP estimated proficiencies for schools and districts, is provided gratis in a spreadsheet file.



Planned Asora Public School Guidebooks

We had hoped to extend our original Potomac Region guidebook into other states:

We generated NAEP estimates for schools in the East Coast states, but abandoned the effort for lack of external support and collaborators.
