Now that our kids are getting a little older it's time to start worrying about high school tuition. Some of the Yeshiva high schools that draw a lot of students from Bergen County include Frisch, TABC, Maayanot & MTA. I compiled the total cost for sending a child to each of these schools for 4 years, assuming no scholarship, one-child in the family attending, fees paid on time, no dorm & no changes in the fees. Here's what it comes to:
Some of the critics of He'atid argue that younger children don't have the attention span to learn from a computer. I disagree. But I wonder if those critics would have the same problem with a high school that emphasized computer-based learning. I don't really get how computer based learning saves money in early childhood if you still have 2 teachers in the room but in high school there can be periods where you don't need a teacher at all.
We need someone that can get this off the ground. Help us GD!
