By Bruce N. Shortt
Bruce Shortt's book, "The Harsh Truth About Public Schools," combines a sound biblical basis, rigorous research, straightforward, easily read language and eminently sound reasoning. Whether one is a parent or parent-to-be, pastor, church staff member or educator, this book has much to offer.
It is based, first of all, upon a clear understanding of God's educational mandate to parents. Its second foundation is a thoroughly documented description of the inescapably anti-Christian thrust of any governmental school system and the inevitable results: moral relativism (no fixed standards), academic dumbing down, far-left programs, near absence of discipline and the persistent but pitiable rationalizations offered by government education professionals.
