Virtually every child in our nation has spent the last few months homeschooling. Some parents had already chosen private Christian home education because of what is happening in our public schools–from graphic sex education to values that do not align with our Christian faith to the promotion of agendas of powerful and vocal special interest groups. Others are now considering bringing their children home out of concern for what the classroom environment will look like when schools resume.

This raises some questions for churches. What can the church do to help? Does the church have a role to play? Is homeschooling a viable option for Christian parents?

The Bible says that parents are responsible for their children’s upbringing and education. Regardless of the form of education (public or private), the responsibility rests on parents to see that their children are educated. Can we hope to pass our faith and a biblical worldview on to our children when they are being educated in a godless environment? Can we expect our children to have an abiding faith when schools teach or infer that God belongs in the compartments of home and church, but not in schools or the greater society?
