Overview

"Greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world" (1 John 4:4). Taking this verse at face value provides the perfect opportunity to prove it in the educational setting of our children, say the authors of Going Public. By nurturing the life and power of Christ within them, students will be ready to stand against negative influences no matter the environment, even bringing light to a dark place. They will also benefit from many of the services that the public school system has to offer. Readers of this practical guide will learn how moms and dads have a strategic role to play in the ongoing development of their school-age children. Discover what the Bible says about education, the three most important things to teach your public-school child, how to shape your child through teachable moments, the importance of getting involved at school, and why everyone should homeschool in addition to public school.

I was so excited to get this book in my hands and it did not disappoint. For so many Christians who feel guilty about sending their kids to the public schools, even though they know it is where they need to be, this is a very helpful and encouraging book. I am so thankful for the Pritchard's and their willingness to write this much needed book.

Excellent book! I encourage all Christian parents struggling with the idea of sending your kids to public school to read this book. It is eye opening. I only wish I could have read it 15 years ago.
