“Professor Linda Darling-Hammond believes education is only good if it helps our children succeed outside of school, in having good careers and happy lives”-Professor Linda Darling-Hammond, http://www.nie.edu.sg/nienews/sept13/?q=contents/20/01. I believe as a parent the second most important decision you will make is choosing the right school for your children. Whether you are looking at public schools, charter schools or considering private schools, you’re bound to have many questions about making the right choices for your child and that’s ok. Investing in a home in a good school district can pay off when it comes to resale. It is noted that homes in better school districts usually hold their value more than homes in lower-quality school districts. All in all buying a home in a good school district definitely does matte, not just for your children’s sake but for your future when you decide to put your home back on the market.
