EdNavigator, a new nonprofit with a New Orleans pilot, helps parents choose the best school for their kids and track their progress. It’s free for parents. Funding comes from employers and charities.
For example, Erica, a hotel housekeeper, had six children in five different schools. Ed Navigator helped her transfer two younger children from a “D”-rated school to their eighth grade sister’s “B”-rated school using an “obscure sibling consolidation process.”
International House Hotel, which partners with EdNavigator, gave her paid time-off to complete the registration. The school provided free uniforms.
