When Christian parents have a number of educational options for their children, what biblical principles help us decide what’s best?
Public school. Private school. Online school. Homeschool. What are the pros and cons of these options? And how do we decide on the right option for our kids? The question today comes in from Lauren. “Pastor John, hello! I’ve searched for a while now to see if you’ve said anything about homeschool, and I cannot seem to find anything. What do you think? Is homeschool now required for Christians in this age? Is it possible that public school can be an option from God? Where are you at in considering local public, local private, online Christian schools, homeschooling, and schools connected to a local church? Do you have any advice for how we should weigh each option and mix them together for each of the interests and needs of each child we are called to raise?”
