Do you know what’s happening within the public education system? It’s getting increasingly difficult for students to live righteous lives for Christ in such as atmosphere. With that thought in mind, Jim Schneider presented Crosstalk listeners with details from 5 different school districts where authorities have either challenged the Christian worldview of students or are usurping the rights of parents. The examples include:
–Shawano, Wisconsin—Brandon Wegner censored and bullied for writing an op-ed article supporting mother-father adoption.
–Sheboygan, Wisconsin—Student barred from the opportunity to hand out valentines with a Christian message of love.
–Grand Junction, Colorado—A high school student is dropping out of choir because he refuses to sing an Islamic song that goes against his Christian beliefs.
–Hillsborough County, Florida—Tampa parents criticize school for letting Muslim civil liberty advocacy group (Council on American/Islamic Relations—C.A.I.R.) speak to students.
–Raeford, North Carolina—A 4 year old girl is forced to eat a school lunch because authorities determined that her lunch from home wasn’t healthy enough.
