Good post. I had a chance to hear a bit of Erwin's outline today as he was interviewed on a lunchtime radio broadcast.

Bravo for you that you understand the necessity of parents taking the initiative in the parental responsibility. I don't necessarily agree with the HRC quote that it "takes a village to raise a child." That philosophy has always bothered me. I believe that it takes a family to raise a child. When we leave it up to the village the result is just what your post is all about.

You're right, Phil. Parents do have to raise their children. It is their responsibility. Unfortunately too many parents prefer to give that responsibility to teachers and expect the teachers to teach them as they should/would. Teachers come from so many backgrounds and perspectives, schools have policies and governments have an influence.
Parents need to know what their children are being taught.

I agree, Phil... yet I also know how teachers do put their slants into things. One of the reasons my wife is home schooling is because she was a teacher in the public school system and knows the slants teachers intentionally put into things. As a Christian, she put hers in... what was interesting was how the non-Christian teachers did the same.

Again, though, the responsibility is on the parents to raise the child. However, at times it seems like any system - public school or otherwise - that a child is in during an impressionable stage can be more of a enemy than a friend at times.
