Get Our Kids Out Of Public School, Homeschool Now
Public School Vs. Homeschool
Christians, we must rescue our children from public schools. They
are being coerced and persecuted there. Frankly, speaking as a
pastor who has observed the deterioration of public schools for many
years, I would say that Christian parents who are putting their
children in public schools today are endangering their children
spiritually, emotionally, physically, and educationally. This debate
is important because parents need to know how toxic public schools
have become.Pastor Wiley Drake, Southern Baptist
Secularization Seen in Society Avoided in Homeschool
"Where did we go wrong? Didn't we used to stand for something?"
These are the questions that the Southern Baptist church is asking itself these days. It's clear that our society as a whole is careening towards mass secularization and immorality. It has been said that what constitutes as "edgy" or "progressive" today is the norm tomorrow. A truer word could not be said about our once-great nation's moral climate.
Circumvent the Dangers of the Classroom by Homeschooling
What's more, these anti-values are being promoted every day within the classrooms and halls of our public schools under the banner of tolerance. Homosexuality is now taught to our pre-teens as normal and healthy behavior. Abortion is offered as an easily solution to a tough problem. Suicide, eating disorders, and self-mutilation rates have skyrocketed. Teenage sexual activity is at an all-time high. Americanism is now synonymous with bigotry and hatefulness. Creation Science is rejected as fantasy. One could go on for hours chronicling the steady decline of youth culture's moral fabric.
Freedoms Allowed by Homeschooling Not Found in Public Schools
If that weren't enough, the public school environment has become shockingly hostile to traditional Christian values and ideas. Prayer was taken out of schools decades ago, and that was just the beginning. Today, students are discouraged from even discussing their faith or taking a moral stand on any issues. After all, "open-mindedness" and tolerance are held in high esteem, far above truth. In fact, truth is now considered an outmoded artifact of a bygone era.
Homeschooling is the Answer
How can we hope to be salt and light in this world if our children are being indoctrinated against Christian values from the moment they enter grade school? Brave Christians across the nation have chosen to pull their children out of public school and begin homeschooling. Now is the time for parents to take responsibility of the precious gifts that God has given them in their children. A mass "exodus" is occurring. This exciting movement has the potential of being the most socially-disruptive boycott of all time. Can you imagine what a powerful force we could be for the Kingdom if we united in order to "train up" the most spiritually vibrant generation of our time?
Christian Homeschool Program
It is time Southern Baptist churches and
associations look more seriously at establishing Kingdom schools.
Now, I might not have said that five years ago. My attitude . . .
was that if someone else wanted to have a Christian school then God
bless them. But now I believe it is time we look...at starting at
the earliest years in developing disciples and empowering Kingdom
growth through education."Jack Graham, Southern Baptist
The Southern Baptist Academy Homeschool Program was founded to answer this call. There is an exodus on the horizon, and we're proud to be able to march at the front lines with our homeschool program. Find out more about Our Homeschooling Mission.
