Recommended Reads – Schools and school readiness

Across the seas in the US and Europe parents are gearing up for back to school… in South Africa that is a few months away but the school debate seems to be a constant in my life – everywhere I go there are conversations happening about “which school are you sending little X to?” and “have you applied at X school” and “are you choosing private, government or homeschooling” or “single sex vs co-ed” etc etc….ad nauseum. It does become an all consuming topic among moms with a certain age bracket of kids.


It would seem I am not alone in the debates I have about schooling my children so here are some interesting reads on the topic. Let me know if you come across any other useful ones! Enjoy!

She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
