Joel Turtel, author of "Public Schools, Public Menace: How Public Schools Lie To Parents and Betray Our Children," says busy working parents can now give their kids a 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 $3,000 to $4,000 a year. Non-religious private schools can charge between $5,000 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. Parents can now use the Internet to give their kids a quality education through Internet private schools that cater to K-12th grade students.
Most Internet private schools have low tuition costs, from as low as $450 a year to $2,000 or more a year. Many schools charge less than $950 a year tuition. That's less than $80 a month, or $20 a week, which is affordable by even the vast majority of low-income parents today.
Internet private schools give children a thorough education in reading, math, history, and many other subjects in the curriculum, and the school assigns a personal teacher to each child.
Also, with Internet private schools, parents know their children are safe. They no longer have to worry about the drugs, violence, bullying, or shocking sex-ed classes in public schools.
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 private 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 in their own living room. As a result, these schools can relieve parents of most of the home-schooling burden, while giving children a high-quality education.
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.
Also, parents can enroll their kids in an Internet private school no matter where they live -- they are not forced to send their children to the local failing public school.
Turtel's book has a whole Resource section devoted to Internet private schools and many other wonderful new education options for parents. The author lists dozens of Internet private schools with their website addresses. Parents can 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.
As Turtel says in his book to parents, "You don't have to settle for a third-rate, often mind-numbing public-school education for your children anymore. You now have many excellent, low-cost education alternatives you can take advantage of right now to give your children the great education they deserve."
Turtel is also the author of a previous book, "The Welfare State: No Mercy For the Middle Class."
