God created each child uniquely with a specific plan and purpose. Education is one tool to aid in the fulfillment of this plan. We must make choices about each child’s education, considering their individual learning styles, character qualities, and God-given gifts. Every decision must be rooted in the wisdom that we seek from God who formed each child and knows them better than we ever will.
What should you consider in making decisions about your child’s education? How might a child’s educational environment affect his spiritual life? How can you equip your child to be successful in her educational environment? This study will guide you in deciding which educational option is best for your child.
