Interesting article, Southern Baptist consider resolution that will encourage an exit stradegy from public schools. Go check it out. Quick read.
"Christian parents have a choice to make. They can continue to risk the public system or take responsibility for the education of their own children and bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." -Taken from the above article.
Addition- I came across this blog yesterday and this is a great post. http://thecherrypitt.blogspot.com/2006/05/why-our-kids-are-in-public-school-part.html
My stand is that each family needs to make their own choices regarding the schooling of their kids. For some it will be public or private, others it will be homeschool. It is a choice that need to make after much prayer and guidance from the Holy Spirit. I know that for us, for this season, we are to homeschool. I have known that for long before they were born. I also feel that there will come a time that they will indeed be in public schools. That is not my plan. If I had it my way they would be homeschooled throughout. In March God showed me that there will come a time that he will call them into the schools to be a witness for Him. Sent out into the mission field. It is my responsiblity to train them for that. I am thankful that he gave me some notice on that one.
In all things teach your kids they way of the Lord. Be it Public, Private or Home.
