School Choice Part 2: Private Education


MOST ACCURATE WEATHER FORECAST. ***EMILY*** WELCOME BACK! ***EMILY*** WELCOME BACK! IT’S ONLY FEBRUARY… BUT IT’S ALREADY TIME TO START THINKING ABOUT THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR FOR YOUR KIDS. TONIGHT WE HAVE PART TWO OF EDUCATION CORRESPONDENT SARAH MARTIN’S SPECIAL REPORT ON SCHOOL CHOICE. PART TWO IS ALL ABOUT PRIVATE SCHOOL… I’M GOING TO DIVE INTO HOW YOU CAN KNOW THAT A PRIVATE SCHOOL IS PERFORMING WELL, AND WHY IT MIGHT COST LESS THAN YOU THINK. it’s like an old prairie farmhouse…. LIV’S THREE CHILDREN ATTEND ANCHOR CHRISTIAN ACADEMY… OPERATED BY THE ANCHOR BAPTIST CHURCH IN SAL LAKE CITY. almost too small for people to see i think i have a different philosophy when it comes to test scores, I want my children to excel as people and the education will come. LIV SAYS CLASS SIZE… AND SELF- DIRECTED LEARNING WERE ON HER SHOPPING LIST WHEN SHE WAS SEARCHING FOR SCHOOLS… BUT WHAT SHE FOUND WAS COMMUNITY. i feel that my children are loved. the objective was to provide a place where church people here could have an education that thy felt was biblicaly sound but that also gave them an alternative to public school, government education. ANCHOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATES KIDS FROM KINDERGARTEN… ALL THE WAY THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL. IT’S TIED FOR THE LEAST EXPENSIVE PRIVATE EDUCATION IN THE STATE… ABOUT 25 HUNDRED DOLLARS A YEAR PER CHILD… IT’S ALSO SUBSIDIZED BY THE CHURCH. AND… THE SCHOOL HAS EXTREMELY SMALL CLASS SIZES. the traditional classroom you have a teacher standing at the front and it’s lock step, but we use accelerated christian education and it gives each student to be able to work at their own speed. WHEN EVALUATING A PRIVATE SCHOOL… YOU’LL TAKE A FEW THINGS INTO ACCOUNT… THE ATMOSPHERE… THE MISSION… THE LOCATION… BUT IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOT OVERLOOK THE ACCREDITATION. PRIVATE SCHOOLS ARE NOT TRACKED OR EVALUATED BY THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION… SO IT’S CHALLENGING TO COMPARE SCHOOLS BASED ON TEST SCORES OR GRADES… BUT YOU CAN LOOK AT THE OVERALL ACCREDITING AGENCY… AND THE TRACK RECORD OF GRADUATES. our students really speak for themselves, upon graduation we have students at every university in the state and they’re doing those standardized tests and they’re faring well. THERE ARE WELL OVER A HUNDRED PRIVATE SCHOOLS IN UTAH… RANGING IN PRICE FROM 25 HUNDRED… TO 60 THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR… FIND A LIST ON OUR WEBSITE… ABC4 DOT COM. you have to take the time to put in the research, going to the school at the corner is the easy solution. so if you want something different for you’re going to have to put the time in. WEDNESDAY IS THE THIRD AND FINAL INSTALLMENT OF THIS SCHOOL CHOICE SERIES… TUNE IN TO LEARN ALL ABOUT CHARTER SCHOOLS. ***EMILY*** THANKS SARAH… AND IF YOU MISSED PART ONE FOCUSING ON PUBLIC SCHOOLS, OR WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT PRIVATE SCHOOLS AND HOW THEY CAN BENEFIT YOUR CHILDREN YOU CAN CHECK OUT THESE STORIES ON OUR WEBSITE ABC4 DOT COM…
