Christian parents question whether their children should attend public schools. Crime afflicts many public school campuses. Budget cuts have increased class sizes and eliminated many programs from public school curriculum. Such trends cause Christian parents to wonder whether they should send their children to private schools or provide home schooling for them.

Linden Boggs encourages parents to consider another option: Get involved constructively in the life of the public school, and make them better environments for learning.

"Our public schools provide a superior education at a minimal cost," he writes. "They are effective training centers for the future leaders of our nation, and of the world. Why dismantle the public school system just because it has flaws? Every institution does. But I believe the flaws in our school system challenge us to improve the system. They challenge all parents to get involved in the education of their children" (10-11).

Concerned Parents offers practical guidance to parents who want to see their public schools become more effective, and more conducive to supporting the values of Christian families.
