Continued reading of the 10 Myths

Myth 9:

The learning environment in the public school is good.

What constitutes a good learning environment? Some parents look at the shiny gymnasium in the public school and believe that that is the definition of a good learning environment. However, if you consider that many public schools in America have instances of drug transactions, sexual acts being committed in the halls, bathrooms, locker rooms, and classrooms, overcrowded classrooms, teachers who are in fear for their physical well-being, classrooms that lack discipline and structure, bullying, gangs, and lax security and safety, then it should be impossible to believe the myth that the learning environment in the public school is good. Parents can obtain statistical information about criminal activity from their local county’s public school administrative offices.

By contrast, like instances are rare in Christian schools. While the “real world” does exist and can be found, cases of sin are handled with the intention of exposing the guilty to truth, furthering their individual sanctification and protecting and developing the school community as a whole. No good can come of an environment where these activities are allowed to become commonplace. Eventually the student comes to believe that this is “normal.”
