Good food for thought. I was already leaning toward public school anyway, and this book gives some great recommendations for how to walk with your children as they attend school. There are lots of good, practical parenting tips, as well as great ideas for getting involved in whatever school your child attends. A good reminder that we as parents are still the primary influence in our children's lives, and we can use the lessons learned in school as a way to teach and train our children in the way of the Lord... but we must be prayerful and intentional in doing so. A reminder too that there are many children and adults that we will encounter in the public school system who need the love and compassion of Christ, and our whole family can be involved in showing care and concern for others. Are we up for the challenge?

Karen Do it, Alana! One of the campus ministry staff workers I knew in Florida became a Christian because of a friendship with a Christian boy at school and the many hours he spent with the boy's Christian family. So glad that boy's family trusted God enough to send their son to public school to be salt and light.

Nathan “The State did not own men so entirely, even when it could send them to the stake, as it sometimes does now where it can send them to the elementary school.”
― G.K. Chesterton
