Education – Government or Christian?

The supreme courts decision which seeks to eliminate religious activity from all government schools has served to focus attention on the problem of education. There has been a renewed interest in private religious schools. Yet parents who would prefer sending their children to a private school find it difficult to do so because of the expense […]

My own introduction to Christian education came comparatively late in life. My education through high school was in the public schools of the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area where the only religiously oriented schools of which 1 was aware were the parochial schools of the Roman Catholics and the Lutherans.

Calvinism and Christian School

This article covers familiar ground for many of our readers who are committed to the cause of Christian education in parent-controlled schools; but it is by no means superfluous to repeat the truths stressed here.
