K Files Community:
My name is Diana Kapp and I'm writing a piece for San Francisco Magazine on the city's public schools. Some of you may have read the story I did last year on private schools "Schools Gone Wild."
I'm now turning my attention to the public schools, and a new level of openness I sense about families considering public schools that may not have 5 years ago.
One of the areas I'm focusing on is the role The K Files played in this year's admissions process.
I know this was a supportive community for many to air their concerns and grievances, get information, and find support. I'd love to get your thoughts on what role The K Files played in your school admission/decision process this year? Was it a major factor in your decision making? Did anyone go public that wouldn't have otherwise? How did the blog change your view, for better or worse, of a particular school, the process, the option of public education? I think the blog is a really interesting example of the momentum that seems to be building for going public. It also revealed quite starkly some of the frustrations. If you'd be willing to share your thoughts, I'd love to hear from you. I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
