Here is an article from Answers In Genesis asking the question: Is Public School an Option?
- Government schools are a hostile mission field for brave Christian teachers, at least until they get canned.
- Government schools are not for students. Teachers teach and train students in school, not the other way around. Peer pressure influences the minority, not the other way around.
- While God could call young believers rock solid in their faith to go in with an agenda and impact others this is the exception not the rule. It is highly unlikely children would be ready for this mission at five years old.
