JAiME for SCHOOLS begins and ends with kids.


The residents of South Washington County MN have a tremendous variety of school options available to them. I explore both public and non-public models through surveys, tours, interviews, meetings, policies, stories, examples, books, state statute, elections, and language. I compare and contrast both biblical and secular perspectives.

I take a creative citizen journalist approach to writing.


Maybe you are a public school student. Maybe you are a homeschooling parent. Maybe you are a private school teacher. Maybe you are an elected official. Maybe you are a grandparent. Or maybe your connection to k-12 education is as a taxpayer. This website is for you!

JAiME for SCHOOLS is about listening and learning. Writing for me is the BEGINNING of understanding through exploration and question. Thank you for having an open mind to the process.

What is best for our children?

I keep coming back to the importance of strong families. For the school that places value on the parent/teacher/student relationship, it thrives in a positive light that is good for a child all around.
