That’s how long the average child spends in the public school. And 90% of self-proclaimed Christian families use the public system for the education of their children. I am aware that many will protest that they simply cannot afford the time or expense of any other option. But, I would like to suggest that they haven’t even begun to understand what their choice will really cost.

The most recent studies find that between 75-90% of church-going teenagers are leaving the faith, with no intention of returning. It really is well past time for concerned parents to look at some method other than standard government education for their families. I truly believe the real cost at stake is nothing less than the soul of their children, and the nation.
