Sometimes, a relationship doesn’t feel like a good match. You can’t put your finger on it, but it just feels like it’s time to move on. That feeling can crop up in personal relationships, as well as in our relationships with schools.

It might seem like a pretty simple question, but there are actually quite a few factors to weigh.
