I am hearing cries from a variety of states that people want to start schools. Please call me if you need help. In particular, I can coach your new administrator and train your teachers, so you call can launch and fly together, straight (rather than bumping into one another). Please see recent review of a couple of books on The Great Shalom’s Overcoming Learning Problems podcast. Please see recent series on “school vouchers” (overcominglearningproblems.org). Don’t depend upon government money if you want to escape government control. It is quite possible, however, for a congregation to start a school. You will save yourself much grief if you plan ahead.
