Who Should Read This Book?
Navigating Public Schools will empower Christian parents to navigate the increasingly secular public school system with the aim to 1) cultivate strong relationships with their children in a season of immense secular pressure; 2) help their children stand firm in their Christian faith and Biblical worldview; 3) exercise their rights on campus; 4) become salt and light for Jesus Christ.
This book will also be a powerful resource for all Christians involved in schools--teachers, administrators, staff, extra-curricular groups, Christian club volunteers, youth leaders, pastors--as they learn to discern the misapplication of the "separation of church and state," and appropriately live out their Christian faith on public school campuses.
How Can This Book Help You?
For Christians, navigating the public education system is becoming increasingly daunting. Christian parents often feel anxiety about sending their children into the public school environment. Kids spend more waking hours in school than in their homes, and while there, they face many challenges to their faith. The statistics on kids and faith reveal that roughly 50-70% of Christian teens walk away from church when they leave home, and only about 10% come out of the teen years with a Biblical worldview.
Navigating Public Schools was not written to debate whether kids should be in public schools or not because the fact is, the majority of Christian kids are in public schools. This book was written to parents who are hungry for guidance on this journey. As a public school teacher for ten years, Stephen saw firsthand how a child's faith may be eroded, so he desires to equip parents and concerned adults to protect children's faith in schools. This book is perfect for busy parents who want clear tools to navigate curriculum pitfalls, exercise their rights in schools, build a strong worldview foundation as a family, and influence the culture for Christ. This book is meant to help Christian parents be intentional about charting a course to protect their child's faith and Biblical worldview. But it's not only for parents--Navigating Public Schools also equips teachers to step off the fear-induced cultural tightrope and appropriately incorporate Christianity into their curriculum. Christian educators, volunteers, pastors and anyone who is involved directly or indirectly with public schools will learn to exercise their Constitutionally-protected rights in a respectful way.
All Christians who read this book will become more empowered to impact and protect the next generation. See our website, www.PrepareTheWay.us for more information.
