For nearly 50 years this nation has embarked on a concerted effort to educate children with a particular concentration on poor children, children of color, and children who are educationally and socially disadvantaged.

We’re raising our children in extremely challenging times: ungodly ways abound and loud voices hail those ways as right. How do you train children to live godly lives so when they’re old, they won’t depart from wisdom?

We highly recommend these resources from the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice. The foundation was founded in 1996 by Milton and Rose D. Friedman to advance a system of K-12 education in which all parents regardless of race, origin, or family income are free to choose a learning environment that is best for their children.
