Economy Hurts Private School Enrollment

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Jun 14, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO The Cornerstone Academy in the San Francisco Bay Area used to have a long waiting list, but the economic crisis keeps it short, according to a report in the Sing Tao Daily. A year of pre-school costs $9,250 plus $450 registration fee at the Cornerstone Academy. Children usually had to wait for at least a year before being enrolled. Some parents even put their newborns on the waiting list. Now, the waiting list has been shortened to two months. More than a few parents whose children were at the private school lost their jobs and had to transfer their kids to public school in the middle of school year.
