Christie Barnes is best known for her acclaimed Paranoid Parents Guide, countering perceived dangers with facts and statistics.
She was shocked to find that stellar students were not getting even adequate college and career outcomes--facts being drown out by college industry marketing hype and our tendancy to clinge to tradition and old methods of success.
Barnes got insider access to colleges and universities, insider access to government reports on "College for All" and Departments of Education, state and national. They made it possible for her to get certifications in high school, college and career planning initiatives for her upcoming book--to bring parents and teens new strategies for individualized academic and future career success.
She is the widow of Peter Barnes, British playwright, Oscar-nominated film writer (Enchanted April, The Ruling Class). She has triplet high school seniors and an older daughter in college
