School Resources Archive Now Open to Public
November 08, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsPHILADELPHIA, PA – In an effort to provide information about education in America The MorningStar Academy opened up the National Assessment of Educational Progress 2007 State Snapshot Reading Reports to the public this week.
“The MorningStar Academy is committed to continually researching and reporting on the climate of America’s schools. One of our goals is to stay informed and enlighten the American people of what is actually going on in the world of education. Education has changed a lot in the last ten years and we want to be able to provide parents with up-to-date resources, like the 2007 Reading State Snapshot Reports,” said Mimi Rothschild, CEO of Learning By Grace, Inc.
The N.A.E.P. 2007 State Snapshot Reading Reports examines the reading levels of fourth and eighth graders in public schools for each state in America. The reports not only reveal the condition of America’s public school system, but they also shed light on why so many parents are choosing to homeschool their children.
“The reports show a disturbing trend. Public school educators have lowered the bar for students as far as what is proficient and that still doesn’t seem to help. Look at Louisiana, a staggering 42 percent of eighth grade male students performed below the N.A.E.P. basic level. If you’re a parent in 2007, it’s pretty easy to decide to homeschool your children when your local public school fails to teach them how to properly read on the most basic of levels,” said Rothschild.
The MorningStar Academy was created out of necessity in 2004 to help parents easily homeschool their children and escape from the deteriorating public school system. The Christian-based curriculum implements 21st Century technology that allows parents to enjoy the benefits of homeschooling while not having to piece together a curriculum on their own.
“The MorningStar Academy was designed so that parents don’t have to stress out about being a curriculum developer, a teacher, a principal, a registrar on top of being a full-time mom or dad. We are a private online school and students can earn a high school diploma through our curriculum. On top of providing an unparalleled program we are also dedicated to providing current information regarding educational issues, homeschool methods, homeschool organizations, homeschool information, and academic resources,” said Rothschild.
The MorningStar Academy is a revolutionary Christian, teacher-led, K-12, multimedia-rich online program. Through its 140 extensive course offerings, The MorningStar Academy is providing engaging educational support to Christian homeschooling families worldwide.
