In the wake of school violence, failing academic programs, and deep budget cuts, parents of school-age children face some serious challenges when looking for the best way to educate their kids. With the government footing the bills, public educators have to be very sensitive when mentioning God in the classroom. For many Christians, sending their children into the morally murky terrain of public schools goes against their best judgment. In fact, homeschooling parent and author of the article Christine Scheller reports, “Where parents send their children to school has become an even greater source of tension among Christians.” The Bible, of course, doesn’t address homeschooling specifically, but it does talk about parenting. Let’s examine in this study what it means to be an educator of one’s own children.
