A Resource to Compare Schools

When parents live in different school districts, there must be a decision about which school a child will attend. Many factors can be considered when making that decision. As in many other issues, it can be really helpful to get some objective facts to use to compare schools.

J. Benjamin Stevens, who writes the South Carolina Family Law blog, had a helpful post recently dealing with the school issue. He mentioned the web site, "", which can provide information about multiple schools and compare them. It is a free service provided by Standard & Poor's. The site has information about the performance of students on reading and math standardized tests, the number of students attending and the student-teacher ratio, among other things.

Such objective information can be very helpful for parents working together to find the best educational opportunities for their children.
