Review:

‘John Rae demonstrates common sense on each page. The more parents who read this book, the better’
Chris Woodhead, Chief Inspector of Schools, Sunday Telegraph

‘Choosing a school always requires a leap of faith; but with this book as a guide it need not be a leap in the dark’
Eric Anderson, Daily Telegraph

From the Back Cover:

More than ever before, a child's chances of a good education depend on parents making the right decisions about schools. Here, for the first time, is frank advice on how to identify a school's strengths and weaknesses and how to plan your children's schooling so that they have the best education available.

Dr John Rae is an acknowledged authority on independent schools who has also written and broadcast on many aspects of the state education system. He sets out to answer questions such as:
• How important are academic league tables?
• Will I have to pay fees to guarantee a good education?
• Which are the best state and independent schools and what do they have in common?

This is the book parents have been waiting for. Choosing schools for your children is always a gamble. 'Letters to Parents' will improve the odds in your favour.

"A useful antidote to much of the fashionable nonsense written about education. 'Letters to Parents' is packed with good sense and can be confidently prescribed in all cases of parental stress and anxiety."
Eric Anderson, 'Daily Telegraph'
