Southern Baptists Reject Private Schooling Initiative
A proposal that would have encouraged the mass exodus of Southern Baptist children from the public school system was killed at this year's annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention (search), supporters say because leadership felt it was too radical for the organization.
Too bad. Well, it's a start at least. I think more and more people should be thinking this way, and the publicity surrounding this proposal will make that happen.
The proposal, sponsored by retired Air Force General Thomas Pinckney and home-school advocate and attorney Bruce Shortt, suggested that each parent in the estimated 16 million-membership of the SBC take their children out of the public school system because, they say, it has long fostered an anti-Christian world view.

"I often tell people that public schools are killing our children morally, spiritually and academically," Shortt told "Certainly, any side of that should be a concern to any parent."
