This is a letter to our friends –

Back to “school”

Why should parents be concerned about their children’s education?

Because they will be the ones selecting your “retirement” home when you are too old to care for yourself! Seriously – You (parents) are the ones who chose to create your child(ren). You, therefore, are responsible for bringing them up. [Deuteronomy 6]

I attended (online) the “2020 Foundations” course hosted by the Foundation for American Christian Education (FACE in Chesapeake, VA – www.FACE.net 800-352-3223). I believe every parent and church leader would do well to invest $275 in this course. If we do not change our direction in education we lose the next generation.

Noah Webster (1828) defined education:
EDUC̵A´TION, n. [L. educatio.] The bringing up, as of a child; instruction; formation of manners. Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations. To give children a good education in manners, arts and science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties.

Take an honest look at the “product” of k-12 public education and most universities. 13 to 17 years teaching that God is not relevant. The next generation needs wise leaders. Respect for the Lord is the beginning of wisdom! [Proverbs 9:10]

I suggest sitting down and setting a goal for your child’s education. Then make a list of what you would like him/her to learn in order to reach that goal. Take control and begin. Home school, co-op with friends and neighbors. Make it happen! Remember – knowledge without character will turn on you. Unless you can teach quality character as you teach a subject don’t teach it!
