The Harsh Truth about Public Schools

So what is this book about? It is about the many ways in which government schools are hazardous to children, and especially Christian children. Christian parents need to see government schools for what they really are, not for what they claim to be or for what they once were. This book is about why government schools are unreformable -- why they cannot and should not be expected to provide the Christian education that the Bible enjoins Christian parents to provide their children.
