Do you want your child to grow up to make a significant difference in the world for Christ?
Who is really discipling your children?
By the time your child finishes matric (grade 12) they will have spent over 15 000 hours in school. What worldview and values will they have learnt in that time? As a vital part of the daily practice of "bring(ing) them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord", it will influence their capacity to advance God's Kingdom in the world in general and more specifically through their vocation.
State-run education has been the norm in South Africa for so many decades. South Africa's education had, on the whole, been pretty good, albeit humanistic. Our children have learned to read, write and do arithmetic. We have had Bible Education presented in the classroom setting and many schools have started with a hymn, Bible reading and prayer in Assembly. Over the last decade, however, this has all come under threat. Matric exam results are viewed with suspicion. Private Schools, (including Private Christian Schools) are springing up all over and there are now over 100 000 children being homeschooled in South Africa.
