It’s Back to School time (for K-12)

In this special issue, we take a look at the consumer culture surrounding education; how parental involvement has become a key ingredient; local districts’ budget outlook; and a new private school option and the possibility of a “green” high school. Also, will Hooker Oak Elementary become a charter school?

In other news: Should Chico’s Saturday farmers market move? Also, kids get a music education outside of the classroom; a look into offbeat Oroville; and Juan-Carlos Selznick reviews The Hurt Locker.
