Take a look at this story. Apparently, an LDS-themed private school in Pleasant Grove is thriving even amid the recession. One of the reasons?
more and more conservative families around the nation, put off by increasingly liberal textbooks and public school curriculum, are looking for established alternatives with a Mormon bent.
My question is: what is going on with Utah public schools (where presumably Mormons are the majority) where anyone would want to spend extra money to send their kid to a private school? Please note: My kids are all in the public schools, and I plan on keeping them there, but I’m carefully monitoring what they’re taught.
