R. Scott Clark:
When most Americans think of education and schools we think of buildings, teachers, board meetings, lunch lines, playgrounds, classrooms, and athletic teams. We might be tempted to assume that education has always been done this way but it has not always been so. The modern educational establishment, public and private, secular or Christian, is the result of a long historical development. It will help us to think carefully about what Christian education is if we understand its roots and history.
Christianity has always had an active interest in the life of the mind…
