Public vs. Christian School Part 1

Said last week that I would be posting some thoughts on public vs. Christian School education.

Is one better than the other? What should a Christian do? Can a student go to public school and make it out Christian? How can we reach all of the students away from God if our Christian children aren't in the public school setting? Is Christian education the same quality as public? Is there a balanced approach to either setting?

My general background is: 12 years of experience teaching in two different Christian schools. Three daughters that have been in both teaching settings, public and Christian. Subbing experience in public schools. 14 years of ministry experience working with teens. 13 years of experience attending a public school.

Last week I posted up a questionnaire and the vast majority, 81% at the time of this post, responded their children were enrolled in a public school setting.

I don't know if I'll answer all of the questions but I am going to give you my opinion and take on it all. It may take a few posts to do it in so please stay tuned.

I really would like to see some conversation stimulated on my blog so do enter your opinion on it all as we go along.

This sounds like it could be a very interesting discussion.

I shall bite my tongue for the moment, and join in the discussion after I've read more. How's that?
