THE BLUEPRINT: THE STORY OF ADVENTIST EDUCATION: Students
 
South Carolina ETV explores one of the largest private-school systems in the world in THE BLUEPRINT: THE STORY OF ADVENTIST EDUCATION, April 3 at 8:00 p.m. on ETV.
More than a century ago, Adventist Ellen White championed the now widely used "whole person" approach to education that encompasses body, mind and spirit.  Today, Seventh-day Adventist education is the third-largest private-school system in the United States and the second-largest in the world.
In many cases, Adventist schools provide students sanctuary from troubled home lives, tough neighborhoods and negative influences.The Blueprint ventures into several of these schools (including Fletcher Academy in North Carolina) and features interviews with school administrators, teachers, students, historians, and education pioneer Parker Palmer, author of The Courage to Teach.
The Blueprint was produced by Journey Films, Inc., is being presented nationally by SCETV Presents, and will be distributed nationally by American Public Television (APT).
