THE UNIVERSITY-MODEL OF EDUCATION (UME)

An Innovative, Efficient Approach that Prepares Students for Success in College and the Work Force

Proven Factors for Success in Education that Help Eliminate Wasted Classroom Time and Maximize Teacher Instructional Time!

Students in college typically spend 15-20 hours/week in the formal

classroom setting and 15-20 hours/week outside of class performing

work in support of their classroom instruction.

The ideal educational model, therefore, for preparing students for

success in college is one that:

1. Utilizes proven factors for success in education through high

school graduation (ages 17-18) and

2. Actually prepares students for the work requirements, both in

class and out of class, that will be experienced once in college.

National High School Statistics Currently Indicate that:

* Only 68% will graduate from high school on time* Only 40% will immediately enroll in college* Only 27% will still be enrolled their sophomore year of college* Only 18% will eventually graduate from college within 6 years

This means that approximately 1/3 of all high school students will not

receive a high school diploma.

It also means that less than 1/2 of all college freshmen will ever finish and graduate with a degree from college.

Statistics are from the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems as reported in the

March 16, 2005 publication of Education Week.

DROP-OUT FACTORS

The #1 reason why so many students drop out of high

school . . .

Lack of Parental Involvement(including a lack of parental

responsibility, a weak parental attitude toward education, and the absence of

a healthy parent/child relationship)

Despite efforts to be inclusive, the traditional schooling route

to college naturally restricts parental involvement, the single

most important determining factor in a child’s educational

success as well as a child’s character and moral development.

The top 2 reasons why so many students drop out of

college . . .

1. Lack of Proper Preparation

Lacking the needed level of knowledge, efficient time mgmt.

skills, necessary organizational skills, self discipline, effective

study skills, and vital character development skills (work

ethic, love for learning, value for honesty, dependability, and

commitment, respect for authority, etc.) – most of which are

taught more effectively by parents and that represent critical

skills needed for college, technical school, & the work force.

2. Lack of Available Tuition Funds

The University-Model of Education is uniquely designed to address the drop-out rates for both high school and college!

Innovative advances in parent training, attendance accountability, and parent-friendly computer software have moved home schooling, previously a private alternative, into the public school domain. These at-home schooling alternatives have provided many students with a uniquely successful route to college, but one with many limitations, particularly in the upper grades.

The main concern is that these at-home alternatives represent a model of education that is void of the professional classroom instructor. These instructors play a critical role not only in the sharing of their expertise in a particular subject, but also in challenging, motivating, and inspiring students to reach and explore higher levels of learning.

The UME Gradual Route to College

Integrating One-on-One Parent Involvement at Home with the Professional Teacher On-Campus, thus Maximizing Student Instructional Time.

The UME uses a fully accredited approach (note to webmaster: provide link to area # 3, subsection b “Significant Features) that gradually moves students from being 100% dependent on their parents to being 100% independent, properly trained, and ready to successfully enter college.

High school juniors and seniors are placed in a simulated college program, spending approximately 15-20 hours/week completing work at home in support of their 15-20 hours/week in the formal classroom setting.

Graduate surveys at the UME private test school (2000-2004) reveal that:

* more than 95% of seniors enrolled in college

* more than 70% attended on scholarship

* and test school graduates averaged a 3.4 grade point average their

first semester of college.

Since the UME program places a heavy emphasis on character development that includes building a strong work ethic, students are also well prepared for success in technical schools and the work force.

Every family in this country faces a different set of circumstances! This is certainly apparent when it comes to the individual educational needs of each child. As a result, a variety of educational models is needed to help meet the different needs and circumstances continually facing families today.

The “Full-Time Traditional” (both public and private) and the “Home Schooling/Public On-Line Instruction” models, by themselves, are simply not enough! A new model that combines the best of traditional education with the best of home education is needed across this country. The University-Model of Education meets that need.

The university-model of class scheduling means less time in school (represented

by the yellow portion of this diagram), and thus less cost per student. It also

means more time for parent involvement – the most important determining

factor in the success of a child’s education and in the success of a child’s

character and moral development.

An estimated 20-40% of all parents would be able to choose the UME schooling

approach for their children (and can increase to an estimated 70% once success

is locally demonstrated and parent work commitments are given time for needed

modification). These percentages are based on day-time employment

commitments of parents that are currently among the following:

1. One parent is a full-time parent at home

2. Both parents work (FT or PT), but at least one parent works from home

3. Both parents work (FT or PT), but their work schedules alternate thus

allowing one parent to be at home during the day or times when children

are home

4. A grandparent, or some other adult directly involved in the raising of the

child, is available during the day.
