A great point and yes I wish schools would start getting more into the web2.0 world. I am trying to nudge my daughter’s school (we’re just starting, she’s in pre-k now) to get an email list started rather than making photocopies of all the information that goes to the parents. I also wrote my own blog post about school transportation and how I visualize it happening in 2008:

I think we should team up and change some of these NYC schools!

Thanks, Dina, for the comment. I agree with you wholeheartedly. Can’t teach an old dog new tricks, as they say. I will definitely check out your blog post. Sounds interesting.

I could not agree more! Social media is a great tool for anyone looking to expand their horizons and meet new people; for schools to implement it, they very well could end up with more applications trying to get into their schools just because they had the opportunity to read and connect with the school and the students on social media sites already. It’s a great way to build a buzz, whatever business or circle you’re in.

Thanks, WT. You can’t lead a horse to water! Hopefully, things will change. I have to check out Woman Tribune. Looking forward to seeing it.
