To determine whether your child is getting the best possible education, you need to become a sharp-eyed student of his school's effectiveness. True, there are things you can't change, such as class size and district budgets. But a close look at how the school uses its resources can teach you a lesson about whether it's set up to meet the needs of today's kids and families.
