Puritan Board Freshman
Hi all - I have a dilemma approaching in one year and need the help from my reformed friends; I have a four year old boy, twin 2.5 year old girls. I am having a lot anxiety over sending my kids to public schools, my wife is unwilling to homeschool - her opinion differs of mine, but she holds to the idea that our children need to be taught by those trained in teaching. Private Christian schooling around here is tremendously expensive, which would be $7,000+ per year, per child - so that option is out. The next option would be to move one town over and be in the more rural public school system our church resides in. Where our kids would be under the eyes of members and other children of the church. I am fearful of our kids being instructed most of their young lives by anti-Christian/atheistic agendas (not of our churchmembers, of course), some 14,000 hours by grade 12. I fear that I am committing a deliberate sin by not homeschooling our kids and sending them to public school-- what sayeth the Scriptures concerning this? What sayest the brethren? Opinions and guidance is most appreciated, friends..
