3 Degrees of Education: Part One

The most common and most widespread acceptable form of education is known as the government's public school. Each of these institutions have accredited teachers to teach the children of this country, and many times foreign exchange students as well. The teachers are accredited by the state, which means the government is mandating what makes a good teacher. They must pass the state test for educating children. Question: Who authorizes the government to accredit these 'teachers'?

The government schools won't allow the Ten Commandments or the Bible within their classes, these teachers are not allowed to teach the Biblical absolutes to their students. So why would the government schools not want a form of law that teaches the following:

Do not steal
Do not kill
Do not commit adultery
Honor your parents
Take a day of rest
Don't use God's name as profanity (It's flat out rude even if you're not a believer)
Do not lie
Do not covet

The only one I can see them not wanting is the part about not serving any other god. This is due to their idea of separation of church and state. BUT, where else are they going to get such fantastic absolutes that instill respect and honor in the children of tomorrow.

They say that it's the parent's job to teach these morals. I agree, it is their job. It's the job of every parent to teach manners and respect to their children.

So when do parents have the time to do this?
They send their children to the schools as early as 6 am (if by bus) and they don't get home until nearly dinner time(by bus or after their after school programs and sports). By this time, children eat dinner (takes about 20-30 minutes) then they need a shower and time for their homework, then if they have any spare moments it's usually in front of the TV or a video game, then off to bed.

So each parent has about 30 minutes at the Family Dinner table(That's if they're not eating in front of the TV on trays) to discuss the 8 hour day their children had away from home. Do you think this is adequate time to combat the thoughts and influences that they were exposed to all day 5 days a week?

The enemy is crafty and is hurling busyness into the lives of our families today, to keep us away from honoring the Lord with our lives. For those Christians who think that sending your children to the world for their education, when do you have time to teach God's Word to your children? How much time is spent in the Word each day compared to what the world is feeding them?

How do you properly care for your child's souls and counsel them to make right decisions? How do you train them to make the right decisions with just a few minutes a day? Do we spend only a few minutes a day training a puppy? How much more important are your children?

Yes, children need an education. The government schools have text books. They have teachers. They have nurses who allow girls to leave school to get an abortion without you being notified. The schools have sports. They have gangs. They have metal detectors. They feed your children breakfast and lunch. They have pedophile teachers and aides. The schools have clubs. They also have violence. The schools have condoms. They have access to the restrooms and the freedom to decide if a boy wants to be a female and use the girls room if they so desire.

Who is your child's main influence? What authority is teaching your children? What are they teaching your children? Do you really know? To what degree do you want this kind of education?

Getting an education is a good thing.

Thank you Angela. The public school was bad enough when I grew up in it 17 years ago, let alone now. I recently had to take a family down to a public school. I was mortified at the language these kids used and NO ONE corrected their profanity. Walking down their halls was like watching a rated R movie.
Then I ran into someone I used to live across from and she was shocked to see me there. She said, "Are you finally putting your kids in a public school?" I said, "Oh no! I homeschool!"
