|Public Schools on Post
yle="margin-top: 0px;">Moving from post to post is difficult on a family even when everything goes according to plan. The stress on the family is only compounded if the children run into school issues that put them at an unfair disadvantage — or worse prevent them from competing with their peers both academically and otherwise. Nothing can make a new post feel unfriendly than an unpleasant school experience for your children.
In the past each military family was on its own. The parents either worked out school issues with the administration or they were a constant source of family/ school discord. The scene has changed drastically since the founding of the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC). This organization founded by retired military and concerned educators is leading the fight for a level playing field for all military connected students.
MCEC continues to make transitioning from post to post easier in the education realm. We encourage you to check out their website at www.militarychild.org talk to your school district administration or call the School Liaison Office (288-7946) for more information.
