How can our schools make the grade?

Recent school tragedies have deepened concerns about education in our land. Parents, administrators, and public officials grope for answers but cannot agree on the root of the problem. At issue is the very purpose of education. Is it to fill blank minds? To impart skills for landing lucrative jobs? To create model citizens in a politically correct society?

The task goes much deeper than filling memory banks and curbing outward behavior, says Norman De Jong. A lifelong educator on several levels, Dr. De Jong calls Christian schools and homeschoolers to a fundamentally biblical philosophy of education, one that deals with human nature, revealed truth, and a child’s need to be transformed.


“Anything from Norman De Jong on the subject of education is worth reading. And especially in this day, when the secularists have so trivialized the task of education, it is important for Christians to remember that the work of the teacher always has to do with this explosive thing we call truth. Dr. De Jong is just the man to issue that reminder.”

—Joel Belz, WORLD Magazine
