Who are these people?
Our editors/advisors have spent their adult lives moving with the diplomatic corps or multi-national corporations, and come from a range of professions and backgrounds - professional educators, journalists, corporate executives, diplomatic wives....
But all are expats, all are parents, and all have had years of experience analyzing and dealing with their own children’s schooling across the globe.
...and how do they know what they know?
Ears to the ground, GSGI editors talk to other parents and visit the schools themselves.
They look at the usual suspects - test scores, buildings, where children go from here (ie other local schools? Top boarding schools back home? Good universities?), and especially compare schools with the best of similar schools worldwide.
GSGI editors know the international schools in their host cities, and they've ferreted out the secrets of expat survival there. Because of their infectious enthusiasm for this intrepid nomadic life, they are exactly the sympathetic, savvy advisors parents need for educational and even cultural advice about new postings or proposed relocations.
