Omaha, NE (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
In an effort to “get America back to work,” David Hooser, chief administrative officer of Franklin Virtual High School has just announced the formation of EARN, a 501c3, that will make completing a high school education available to those in this society without the resources for tuition, or who find themselves struggling with other life challenging circumstances. “Adult students today are basically broke,” said Hooser, who stressed that through EARN students will have their tuition covered in order to ”earn” a high school credential and thus become gainfully employed and a contributing member of society.
“In order to qualify for EARN, students will be asked to submit testimony via a written essay about what it means to them to earn their high school diploma or equivalent,” stated Hooser, who encourages tax-deductible donations to the 501c3 from “those who want to help change the economic outlook for such students, their community and the country as a whole.”
“We offer a full slate of high school coursework online,” said Franklin's Dean of Curriculum, Janeen Scaringelli, who added that, “this is ideal for working adults whose time is usually crammed with one or two low-paying jobs, raising children, etc.; they can complete Franklin Virtual High School programs with unlimited monthly access at their own pace, in their own time, as long as they have an Internet connection.” She also stressed that their curriculum includes options such as traditional diploma, Fast Track, preparation for GED and other state equivalency exams, as well as SAT/ACT prep. “Our teachers are fully certified to develop and/or deliver our easy-to-follow interactive and video-streaming learning format.” The school is SACS accredited, has an A+ BBB rating and offers a variety of satisfaction or money back guarantees so students will be confident they've made a solid choice.
“Few things are as important in these difficult economic times as helping adults gain better employment and getting the country back on its feet,” noted Hooser, “which is exactly why we founded EARN. We are convinced there are thousands of Americans who would contribute tax-deductible dollars to such an effort and breathe a sigh of relief that times are changing for the better.”
