What Educational Choice is Right for Your Kids?

Weighing the Options

Often, this question has led to tension in the church and among parents.

Christian educators emphasize the need to teach a Christian worldview in all subjects (Col. 2:3); homeschooling families stress the responsibility parents have as the first educators (Deut. 6:7); Christians in public education note our calling to be salt and light in the world (Matt. 5:13-16). Too often, though, disagreements have created fault lines instead of thoughtful dialogue among Christians honestly seeking what’s best for their children.

Join Denver Institute, leading educators, and parents for an open-minded conversation examining the various approaches to training our children. During the evening, we’ll ask questions like: Public, private, or homeschool? What’s the theological case for each? What’s the right fit for my kids? How can we prepare them to be faithful to Christ in a rapidly changing world?

During the evening, we’ll hear from Bill Kurtz (CEO, Denver Schools of Science and Technology), Kurt Unruh (President, Valor Christian), and Jen Oshman (author), as well as a panel of thoughtful parents of kids in public, private and homeschool settings. Join us as we come together in a neutral setting to discuss what these three choices – public, private, and homeschool – mean for our kids, and our society.

Light appetizers will be served
