The Case for Christ Centred Education
There are many questions that Christian parents need to consider, but probably the most important question to ask is "should God be excluded from my children's education"?
These video resources and links, and the written material below, provide thoughts and opinions of real parents who have or had children at Christian schools, and facts and myths about Christian education.

Myths about Christian education
A Christian School is an Unreal Environment
My children should mix in a secular school so their light can influence other children to become Christians
The reality is that the majority of Christian children attending secular schools do not influence other children in this direction, but are usually themselves influenced by the behaviour, language, habits, beliefs and values of the majority. Parents are often very distressed at the results.
