The Blueprint: The Story of Adventist Education Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Sat, Dec 30, 2017 -- 7:00 AM

This program focuses on Seventh-day Adventist education, the third-largest private-school system in the US and the second-largest in the world. More than a century ago, Adventist Ellen White championed the now widely used "whole person" approach to education that encompasses body, mind and spirit. This "blueprint for education" specifically emphasizes skilled training, healthy living and community service within a safe, faith-based environment.
This program ventures into the classrooms of a few of the nearly 1000 schools across the United States operated by Adventists. In many cases, these schools provide students sanctuary from troubled home lives, tough neighborhoods and negative influences. Profiled schools include: The Bronx-Manhattan School in New York, The Holbrook Navajo Indian School in Arizona, Spencerville Adventist Academy in Maryland, Fletcher Academy in North Carolina, Pinon Hills School in New Mexico and Columbine Christian School in Colorado. The film also features interviews with school administrators, teachers, students, historians and education pioneer Parker Palmer, author of The Courage to Teach.
