Why I Send My Children To A Christian School

My two children - Christine (1st year High School) and Paul (Grade 4) are both in a Christian School. It's our choice. Count the ways why we send them to a Christian school.

"These commandements that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on you foreheads. Write them on the dorrframes of your houses and on your gates." - Dueteronomy 6:6-9

"I am much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God becomes corrupt." - Martin Luther

"The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next." - Abraham Lincoln

"Withdraw from a child the only divine rule of life and the result will be most lamentable. An education without a Biblical base is not education but propaganda." - Cal Thomas

"I'm going to say something now that I have never said before. In the state of California and places that have moved inthe direction they have gone, if I had a child there, I would not put that child in public schools. I've been very careful not to be negative to the public schools but, given the fact they are being taught homosexual propaganda and these politically correct post-modern views, I think it is time to get our kids out." - James Dobson

"A child's soul is what is vitally important here. And they're poisoning that... you should not let your child be lied to by a teacher at the front of a classroom." - Pat Buchanan

"No doubt a major strategy devised by the enemy of souls of men attack the heart of a free and biblically based nation --- its schools. Such a strategy would target our young because this i the major place where minds are formed today's world. Benjamin Rush, a founding father and one of the signers of the declaration of independence, wrote that if the God, the Bible, and prayer have been replace in our schools with handguns, drugs, and condoms. The result has been disastrous." - Bill Bright, Founder and Chairman of Campus Crusade for Christ
