Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Thinking about going back to school? eHow Mom offers tips to parents thinking of going back to school in an article called Back fo School: Classes for Adults which features UMass Amherst UWW Senior Lecturer and Chief Undergraduate Advisor Karen Stevens, EdD. 

Here's an excerpt:

"As a parent, you will want to consider the balancing act of raising a family while returning to school. Check with potential colleges to see if they offer childcare or flexible course scheduling, suggests Stevens. Do they have evening and weekend courses to fit your schedule? Does the school have online offerings? 'You want to know that the school you are attending understands adult learners and understands that adult students are juggling multiple responsibilities,'" says Stevens.
