Book Club: The Organized Student by Donna Goldberg

The Organized Student by Donna Goldberg with Jennifer Zwiebel is a great resource for any parent struggling to get their child through school. It is jam-packed with helpful information, has an easy-to-follow format, and providers readers with explicit checklists and photos of suggested systems.

If you’ve got a struggling student and an open mind, this is the organizing book for you.
