There is, unfortunately, a feeling in some quarters today that there is something innately wrong about learning, and that to be spiritual one must also be stupid.

This tacit philosophy has given us in the last half century a new cult within the confines of orthodoxy; I call it the Cult of Ignorance. It equates learning with unbelief and spirituality with ignorance, and, according to it, never the twain shall meet. This is reflected in a wretchedly inferior religious literature, a slaphappy type of religious meeting, and a grade of Christian song so low as to be positively embarrassing.

Groups can also fall precipitously in their fortunes. Today, American Protestants are below average in wealth, and being raised in an Evangelical or fundamentalist Protestant family is correlated with downward economic mobility. Education has become a battleground for competing philosophies.

For decades, public education has been means of educating most of our citizens in the United States. Traditionally, there has always been a strong minority of parents who have sent their children to private schools that correspond to their religious beliefs—such as Catholic parochial schools and Jewish day schools. Others send their children to schools that correspond with their economic means and class, such as college-preparatory boarding schools.

Recently, Protestant Christian schools have emerged as an alternative to the public school system as a reaction to the sharp decline of moral and academic standards. Many parents decided that they no longer have to subject their children to the lack of quality education in a free country. This time, the problem is financial, or so it seems.

A change in societal norms is hurting the schools, as a faction of parents who pay the bills often insists on a watered-down education, fighting against teachers who implement academic or behavioral discipline.

Schools open and schools close, reminding one of a squall line, where thunderstorms form and dissipate as the cold front moves forward. We will examine the philosophy of Protestant Christian education, taking into consideration the main points, and set a goal that we have yet to attain.

Public schools in the US started out for the good of Christianity, but those days are long gone. Harvard and other top colleges were started to train ministers, but have typically secularized, despite having studies in theology or divinity.

Real Bible schools and seminaries exist as the only schools dedicated to training preachers today. The rapidly-declining morality of the public school system necessitates the alternative of religiously-run education. Its worldview of naturalism, scientism, and socialism stands in stark contrast to the teachings of the Bible. As students this year are being forced to accept not only the alternative lifestyle that has been pushed on them for the last couple of decades, but even students of the other gender in their restrooms and locker rooms, more and more parents are seeking an educational milieu with higher moral standards and just plain more safety for their children.

There are several pedagogies known in education. At one extreme is the Socratic method, in which students read the material on their own, and discuss it in class. This is more common in classical education, and relies on a really motivated student population. The other extreme is the college lecture to many students, in which an instructor lectures to the students, with perhaps a little bit of interaction.

Reading typically matches the lecture. Elementary and secondary education is somewhat in between those two. Although a student might sit in a calculus class with three hundred others in a French high school class, American classes enjoy a better teacher to student ratio, rarely exceeding thirty students in a classroom.

There is more interaction between teacher and student. The ideal is when an instructor teaches for a few minutes, then makes sure that the students all understand what has been taught.

This can be a tougher adjustment for a professor turned teacher to make, but it needs to be done. This should be common sense, but when a coach is forced to teach history, which he barely knows, or even more commonly in small schools—such as many Christian schools—a teacher must teach several areas, this can become an overlooked area.

A Christian school science teacher, for example, must often teach space and earth science, biology, physics, and chemistry. There are no departments in a university setting which offer all these. A college student might become a biology major or a chemistry major, or even a double major sometimes done for acceptance into medical school , but a university does not have a department of science.

This alone is a case for a larger school, where a teacher teaches one course six times a day instead of five or six different courses in a day, but few Christian schools are large enough for that. This is quite different from what the training of a public school teacher produces. Second, they go on to major in education, where pedagogy is emphasized much more than subject knowledge. And fifth, secular humanism has so invaded public education and teacher training that the teacher has been trained under a philosophy rather different from what is presented in the Bible, giving the teacher an unbiblical worldview.

The teacher has to be qualified in the area of teaching, but also must be a disciple of the Lord. This makes Christian education so much more challenging. There are many qualified teachers, although maybe fewer in such areas as science, and there are many Christians totally committed to discipleship, but how many are both?

This makes finding a good teacher much harder than just recruiting people from a local church or from the family of the administration and other faculty. There is another area in which schools vary. The evangelistic model takes in all students and gives them the gospel. The discipleship model disciples students from Christian families. Students in schools using the evangelistic model often have to deal with bullies.

Some of the better students leave these schools for the public schools, finding that the public schools might have better academics and less tolerance for nonsense. We must remember that there are public schools with horror stories of gang warfare and classes gone out of control, yet there are other public schools that do a better job at discipline and academics than many Christian schools, despite the secular humanism found in the classes.

We might win the bully, but when the bully chases out the better student, and the administration cannot figure out what is going on, we see that such a model has its weakness. The ideal student must really be motivated in both academics and behavior. The discipleship model makes for a better learning environment.
