I've written a few blog posts in the past about public school. It has been a few years and things have not gotten better. Public schools are only getting worse. Now more then ever, public school should be avoided whenever possible.
To Christian Families:
If you want to change the world for the better, do not send your kids to public school. This is a very controversial statement to some people and a very common sense statement to others. Based on numbers and observations, public schools exist to poorly educate your children while also shaping their worldview (beliefs and values) to be contrary to the Christian faith. If you think public school is good, useful, or even neutral, then you need to watch the videos from Voddie Baucham Jr.
Many public school libraries are starting to be stocked with obscene books. In some states it is a crime for an adult to hand one of those books to a minor, but if you put it in the school library it is ok.
If you want the next generation of leaders to be smarter and to have more moral character based in strong biblical foundations of truth, do not send your kid to public school.
Most people think these extreme things do not happen at their kid's school, but most people are wrong. For the few that might be right, it is just a matter of time. Also, even if zero crazy progressive things are be shoved down their throats, public school is still a humanist outreach institution were more than half will probably not be able to read,write, or do math above at a high-school level.
"When you send your kids to Caesar, do not be surprised when they come back Romans."
