Question: Are there affordable or choice apostolic schools in my area? This topic of sending my kids to public schools has long been a bothersome issue for me since I began attending an apostolic church 3 years ago. I have hoped to get them in an apostic school but I can't afford the tuition for 4 kids. I have been seeking alternatives but I know I have to then be aware of what the alternative school may be teaching them (catholic, lutheran schools etc.) so that they are certain of what it is they have learned and from who they have learned it.

Answer: Here are a few quotes for you to consider:

'The truth is that schools don't really teach anything except how to obey orders.' --John Taylor Gatto, NY City and State Teacher of the Year.

'There is, on the whole, nothing on earth intended for innocent people so horrible as a school.' --George Bernard Shaw

'In general the best teacher or care-giver cannot match a parent of even ordinary education and experience.' --Dr. Raymond Moore

'It is nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wreak and ruin. It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.' --Albert Einstein

We are not in favor of putting Christian children into any kind of school. We believe Christian parents should educate their children in fulfillment of the biblical mandate.
