This is part 2 of my episode, "Public, Private, or Homeschool: Thinking Through Your Child's Education (Part 1)." In this part, I talk about the widely varied types of Christian private school options available to parents, breaking them into four general categories: progressive Christian schools, nominally Christian schools, committed Christian schools with a mainstream educational philosophy, and committed Christian schools with an alternative educational philosophy. Additionally, I answer questions listeners submitted online, such as:
--How do you prevent your kids from being in "Christian bubble" if they aren't in public school?
--How do you discern if a "Christian" school is really Christian?
--How do you prevent your kids from being jaded by the nominal Christianity they are likely to encounter with classmates at a Christian school?
--What should you do if the administration and/or teachers at your current Christian school are leaning leftward?
--How much does a school's denomination matter?
Note that I was originally going to discuss public school as well in part 2, but due to length, I've made this a stand alone episode. Part 3 will discuss public school and is forthcoming.
