PUBLIC schools vs HOME schooling? #ourCOG What do you think is better for the Christian child?
Stan Wayne [03/11/2016 9:35 AM]
It isn’t an either/or for us – we do both as the need and opportunity shifts

Isn’t Christian school also an option?

Patrick Conley Not if they’re becoming more public than private
Stan Wayne [03/11/2016 9:43 AM]
Important to fight Common Core

Troy Day, the post just doesn’t allow for that third very viable option. Depending on where you are located there are sound private Christian schools. There are at least 3 I would send my kids to within 15 minutes of my home.

Patrick Conley Even if they are subject to the CACREP accreditation?

All I am saying is that there is a third option. Obviously not all private schools are good, but there is still a third option.

For example there is a COG school 10 minutes from my house.

Private school can be very very good – even Catholic parochial schools are more free than public to mention God

I think the parents should be involved in the religious upbringing. As a former HR director I can tell you that home schooled candidates have book smarts, but not street smarts nor social skills necessary to compete in more cases than you think

In the very end of it all. Predestination from before the foundation of the world. The mighty call of God himself to that one. and the Leading of His Holy Spirit, will have the Final say of it all. I was Alcoholic,Dope, Vietnam infantry solder,Cigarette addicted. unclean Living, but the Holy Ghost came after me and Brought me out of it all. I’m Holy ghost filled now 42 years. The one thief on the Cross next to Jesus.Luke 23rd Chapter 42nd Verse: And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy Kingdom.(43) And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. Yes that Thief Murder, was predestinated to meet God on that Cross. I’m so thankful for that Simple Scripture of Eternal life.

Being a Christ follower and a public school teacher and a parent who’s children go to public school, it’s a very fine line for me to cross or take a stand on. I grew up in a Christian school and was very safe and taught the Biblical worldview, which I still stand by and teach my children today. However, we are to train our children not hide them. Not all public school teachers teach ungodly secular thought. Jesus walked and talked with unbelievers. He heard them, spoke to them, hung out with them,taught them in their own environment. He didn’t hide from them nor tell his followers to either. Homeschooling works and is not necessarily going to make kids lack anything. Public school works and does not make people ungodly. Christian schools work yet sin reaches every place u have listed. We can protect our littles and teach them the knowledge, love and ministry of Christ and still have them in public schools. Training them. Not hiding under a bushel, no. Letting them shine.
