Good post. Timely too, I have been thinking about this as I try to plan for our upcoming school year.

Nice post. Our standards separate us from other people, especially when it comes to education. Most of the time, development is insufficient because we forgot to set new standards for for certain situations.

Couldn't have said it better. What good is it to gain the world of knowledge yet lose our soul?

Thank you for clarifying this for me. I know that children need to be held to a standard morally but hadn't actually applied the word to education. I know that each subject is important and that each child will not master every thing but each child can embrace a foundation of truth.

You are right when you say we must first know what the standard is before we can raise it. We need to know the why before we do the what.

Great post about standards. It's a great reminder for everyone that defining our standards plays a big role in our lives.

Shawna, I will never give up on the idea of public education, either. I think it needs a lot of changes, some simple, some major. It never will be able to do what too many expect it to do (replace parents), but it certainly can do a better job than it is doing! And what a complement!

Thanks, headmistress. I actually wrote something similar to it a long time ago, but I began thinking about it again last week when I mentioned something about standards in one of the Back to Homeschool Week entries!

Great post, Dana...of course, all your posts are great. But this one especially rang true to me when thinking of my own upbringing and the confusion that resulted from being in a Christ-centered school but not seeing enough Christ-centered living at home, or really in the community as a whole. It's no wonder I'm so convicted to ensure my kids have as much consistency as possible and want to keep them home with me: their home-life and school-life will share the same standards.

Looks like we'll be at Pike's Peak about the same time. I'm e-mailing you our info in case we cross paths.

Interesting take on the idea on standards in the public arena!

I am very tempted to print some of your posts and leave them for some of teachers whom I know on a more personal level at our local schools ...letting them know they can always chnge the focus from God to something more nuetral if it makes them more comfortable within the public sector...the overall idea and concepts are so concise and feel that is something that many teachers need in this every changing and confusing world of "education."

Why bother if my youngest son is being homeschooled? Because I still value the istitution and idea of public education; I still feel that HSing isn't and won't be for everyone; I still think that some good can come from "education" if it could be simplified and government were removed. Call me an idealist, hopeful or silly...but I think public education will be around for awhile longer I would rather see it turn better than worse for all the children that are still a part of it.
