The Daily News: New website to help parents find ‘Great Philly Schools’

By Andrew Eiser, Daily News Staff Writer

LUCIANA BOONE is a parent of a freshman at Philadelphia High School for Girls and an eighth-grader at KIPP West Philadelphia Charter School.

Like most parents, she is concerned about the quality of the education her kids receive and, ultimately, how to find the right school for them.

“Two years ago, when I was looking, for my daughter, I had to go to multiple sites and get information from a lot of different places to create my own spreadsheet, so I could compare,” said Boone, a member of the Black Alliance for Educational Options, an organization supporting parental-choice policies and programs.
