Education

A child’s education is formational for life. Whether it takes place in a school or a home environment, it has tremendous power for good or evil, in shaping the character and values of young people. As pressures increase from LGBT campaigners and secularists, it is increasingly important that Christians are active in shaping educational policy and discipling young people. At Christian Concern we believe that ultimate responsibility for educating children lies with the parents, not the state. We campaign for parental freedoms and education that reflects Biblical values.

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
