To the Rescue --- Private Schools For Your Children For Less Than $850 a Year Tuition

Joel Turtel, author of "Public Schools, Public Menace: How Public Schools Lie To Parents and Betray Our Children," says busy working parents can give their kids a quality, low-cost, private-school education at home using the Internet.

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.

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 $7000 to over $14,000 a year.

Millions of low and middle-income parents simply cannot afford this tuition, so they think they are stuck with public schools.

Turtel says there’s another way. Now parents can give their kids an excellent private-school education through Internet schools that cater to K-12th grade students.

Many Internet private schools have low tuition costs, from as low as $350 a year to $2000 or more a year. Many schools charge less than $850 a year.

For example, the Clonlara School currently charges about $750 for the 2005-06 school year for a new student in kindergarten through 8th grade studies. Children get a thorough education in Reading, Math, History, and many other subjects in the curriculum, and the school assigns a personal teacher to each child.

There are dozens of excellent Internet private schools parents can choose from. Some schools such as Keystone National High School only offer high-school programs while others offer a complete, kindergarten through 12th grade education.

Many accredited Internet schools 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 in their own living room.

This setup is especially helpful for single-working moms, or families where both mother and father work. Since Internet-school teachers supervise the child's education, it's less likely that parents have to take time from work or quit their job to homeschool their kids. As a result, Internet private schools take most of the homeschooling burden off parents' backs.

As Turtel says to parents in his book , “You don’t have to settle for a third-rate public- school education for your children. You do have alternatives, many excellent, low-cost alternatives that can give your children a first-rate education and a rewarding future.”

"Public School, Public Menace" has a whole Resource section devoted to Internet private schools and many other education options. The author lists dozens of Internet schools with their website addresses. Parents can quickly research these schools, find out if the yearly tuition fits their budget and the curriculum and teaching methods look suitable for their child.
