This article's basic idea: every Christian child has a right to a Christian education
What happens at school is important.
Attending a Christian school is helpful.
But most important of all is what happens at home
As the minister says to parents at a child's baptism:
"You will be the first teachers of your child.
May you also be the best of teachers,
giving good example,
helping your child to grow in Christian love"
If there is no prayer and other good example in the home,
prayer and good example at school has little chance of much influence
Jesus, may Christian parents give their
a good Christian education
