Public schools are operated by state, county, or local governments. The public school mission is to train students to be proper members of society. Budgets come from tax dollars. Textbooks provide a secular worldview.
Charter schools are public schools and most often are sanctioned by public school districts or governmental agencies. Charter schools have freedom from some regulations and sometimes weave themes such as technology, art, or character development into curriculum. The mission varies at each charter school but is usually based on the focus of the curriculum. Textbooks provide a secular worldview. Budgets are provided by governments.
Other than in fire, safety, and some additional tenets, Christian schools are independent of governmental authority. Their mission is to provide academic instruction from a biblical viewpoint. Christian schools raise their own funding.
People talk about ungodly actions in society and ask, “How did things get this way?” Part of the answer is “This is the way society has been taught.” For years, young boys and girls were taught secular values. They have now grown to become those who make our laws and influence the current generation of school children. We know that without God’s grace and people committed to stand for righteousness, nothing will change. People in the next generations who will need to stand for righteousness are students like those now attending Bob Jones Academy and similar Christian schools.
