Low-cost Private Schools For Your Kids That Charge Less Than $950 a Year Tuition?*Wow! - Articles Surfing
Millions of desperate parents today are appalled at the inferior education public schools give their kids, but think they have no where else to go. The good news is that busy working parents can now give their kids a private-school education at home using low-cost, accredited Internet private schools.
Many parents believe that the only alternative to public schools is either a Catholic or Protestant-affiliated school or expensive non-religious private school. The problem is that even Catholic schools now charge an average tuition between $3000 to $4000 a year. Non-religious private schools can charge between $5000 to over $14,000 a year.
The high tuition costs of private schools puts most medium-income and low-income parents in a difficult position. Most parents may not want to send their children to third-rate failing public schools, but they cannot afford expensive private-school tuition, especially if they plan to pay for their children's college education. Fortunately for parents, there are now new, quality, low-cost education options for their children.
For instance, author Joel Turtel talks about Internet private schools in his new book, *Public Schools, Public Menace: How Public Schools Lie To Parents and Betray Our Children.* Turtel says that Internet private schools provide excellent education for K-12th-grade kids, and many of these schools charge less than $950 a year tuition.
One example of such excellent low-cost Internet private schools is the Clonlara School, which enrolls K-8th grade kids. Children get a thorough education in reading, math, history and many other subjects in the curriculum. Also, each child can get personalized, one-on-one instruction from a teacher the school assigns to the child. These schools have rigorous academic standards and test each child throughout the school year to make sure the child is progressing in his studies. The schools also help parents organize their child's academic records to present to college admissions officers when the child is ready to graduate.
With all Internet private schools, parents no longer have to worry about the drugs, violence, shocking sex-ed classes, and often incompetent teaching methods used in government-run public schools. With low-cost Internet private schools, parents can give their children a great education in the safety of their own home.
Many accredited Internet private schools now give a course of study similar to traditional private schools. They take children through a progressive curriculum in math, science, reading and writing, history and many other subjects. This structured, comprehensive program, in effect, gives children a personal teacher and private-school education at home.
Internet private schools can be especially helpful for single working parents or families in which both mother and father work. Since Internet-school teachers supervise the child's education, it's less likely that parents will have to take time off from work or quit their job to homeschool their kids.
*Public Schools, Public Menace" has an entire section devoted to Internet private schools, as well as other education options for parents. The author lists dozens of Internet private schools with their web sites. Parents can use the book to quickly research these schools, find out if the yearly tuition fits their budget, and if the curriculum and teaching methods look suitable for their child.
Those parents who want a better education and future for their children should seriously consider taking their children out of public school, and enrolling their kids in a quality, low-cost Internet private school.
