Top Five Reasons Not to Send Your Kids Back To Govt. School

The following list is stolen directly from Dr. Voddie Baucham’s blog “Truth in Love.”  I have not reproduced the entirety of his reasoning for each point.  I have given you a sample.  For the full article I do encourage you to head over to Dr. Baucham’s blog.

5. YOU DON’T HAVE TO

You don’t have to take them back to the local government indoctrination center next semester.

4. AMERICA’S SCHOOLS ARE AMONG THE WORST IN THE INDUSTRIALIZED WORLD

One of the issues that many Christians seem willing to ignore is the fact that sending children to American schools represents extremely poor stewardship.  American students continually rank at the bottom in math, science and reading compared to other industrialized nations (see here).  That’s right, our educational system is among the world’s worst!

3. AMERICA’S SCHOOLS ARE MORALLY REPUGNANT

The headlines speak for themselves.

2. GOVERNMENT EDUCATION IS ANTI-CHRISTIAN

The result of non-Christian education is anti-Christian education.  Government schools must be anti-Christian.  They can be nothing else.  Therefore, to send a child to a government school is to have them trained in an anti-Christian environment for 14,000 instructional hours.  To get that much instruction from church a child would have to attend two hours a week for one hundred and forty years!

1. THE BIBLE COMMANDS CHRIST-CENTERED EDUCATION

…there are a number of passages that speak directly to the issue of training ourselves and our children intellectually, spiritually, philosophically and morally (See Deut. 6:6,7; Prov. 1:7; Eph. 6:4, etc).  We also have numerous warnings against allowing others to influence us intellectually, spiritually, philosophically, and morally (Psalm 1; Rom. 12:1,2; 2 Cor. 6:14ff; Col. 2:8, etc.).
