Tim Challies linked to this article today, about the role of Christians in the public schools.
From my experience, talking about how Christians educate our children can be a volatile subject. I think that's unfortunate, and also unnecessary. When Christians root their identity in their Savior and in the gospel of His grace, I believe there will be civil conversation on this subject, even when there might be strong disagreement.
So give it a read and let me know what you think of it. Even if you're committed to a form of schooling other than the public schools, I think there's some thought-provoking material here.
