Why Christian Parents Must Consider a Mass Exodus From Government Schools for Their Children

by | May 11, 2021 | Culture

There has never been a better time for parents—and especially Christian parents—to get their children out of government schools. That is the message pastors and families all over America need to hear right now. From the indoctrination and sexualization of children to the unprecedented dumbing down and now the outrageous “coronavirus” measures, the time has come.

When we first embarked on this mission, the idea of encouraging all parents to get out was seen as “fringe,” if not ridiculous. But today, the tables have turned. Talk-radio titan Rush Limbaugh, evangelical leader Franklin Graham, former President Donald Trump and even internationally known ministry leader and talk show host James Dobson have now all sounded the alarm on this subject.

With coronavirus keeping children home from public schools around the world, our growing coalition of Christian ministry leaders, lawyers, educators and journalists are working to make sure that once the crisis is over, millions never go back. Instead, what America and the church need is a massive—and permanent—exodus into the safe sanctuary of homeschooling and high-quality private schools.

On the one hand, I can’t encourage parents strongly enough to try out true homeschooling—not government school at home — during the coronavirus shutdown. Just stop relying on the government, period! At the same time, parents should closely examine the material public schools are using. Most would be appalled.

On another front, it is time for pastors across America to advance this mission too. They will be key. For one, they should preach on what the Bible says about education. It will not take long for Bible-believing pastors to recognize that God never intended His people to hand their children over to anti-Christian government schools for “education.” Rather, parents are told to disciple and educate their children.

Pastors have a key role to play in making the exodus happen. Toward that goal, they should talk to their elders and churches about how they can help families. It will look different at each church. Some may want to start a Christian school. Others may just want to facilitate a homeschool co-op. Smaller churches may simply want to set up a virtual Christian academy. No matter what, we are here to help.

There are many compelling reasons for parents and pastors to protect the children from government schools right now, even if they have not been doing it before. Consider, for example, the state laws proliferating across America mandating LGBT indoctrination of all children. Radical “sex education” with roots in absolute evil, meanwhile, begins in kindergarten. And that is just the start.

On the religious front, it is a grim picture. In California, a newly approved “ethnic studies” curriculum would see children chant and pray to the Aztec gods of human sacrifice and cannibalism. Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and more are all welcome, but not the God of the Bible. As Jesus explained twice in the Gospels, whoever is not with Him is against Him. Simple question: Is your local government school with Christ?

Academically, the government itself admits that government schools are failing children—with devastating results. Many high school graduates lack even basic literacy and math skills. Over two-thirds of children in government schools are not even considered “proficient” in any subject, the federal government revealed in its latest National Assessment of Educational Progress results.

The shutdown brought about by coronavirus has created millions of new temporary homeschool families around the world. Now is the time to strike. If you think children deserve better than the godless pseudo-education offered by government schools, help spread the word.

The church has an incredible opportunity here. Let’s not miss it. {eoa}
