Every October issue focuses on education with our handy directory of private, charter, boarding and magnet schools. But we took it a step further this year by engaging about a dozen parents about how and why they chose a particular school.
It's a common quandary in Durham, where parents can feel overwhelmed with the number of choices they have.
It's an illuminating read, but only scratches the surface. We'd love to hear from other parents about their experience, good, bad or mixed. Feel free to leave a comment here or in our full interview with Superintendent Eric Becoats, or in longer first person accounts from other parents HERE and HERE.
Elsewhere in the magazine, Assistant Editor Amanda MacLaren spotlights the five(!) new pastry shops that have just popped up across our city.
Amanda also penned our Great Home feature about a New York couple who found a gratifyingly different life in Hope Valley.
Editor Matt Dees spent a Wednesday evening at Papa Mojo's Roadhouse for their open-mic night. It's a must for Durham music lovers.
All that plus reviews of Mateo and Tobacco Road Sports Cafe, two wedding features, full events and restaurant listings and a little surprise all the way from Portland.
The October print edition can be found now on newsstands at Sam's Quik Shop, Whole Foods, The Regulator Bookshop, Parker and Otis, Barnes & Noble, Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Fifi's, Bull Street Gourmet & Market and more.
