The myth of value neutral education

Check out this video by Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis. I don't agree with everything he says, especially the "Christian America" talk, but I think he makes great points about the poison many kids are being fed daily in public schools. We let our kids get fed childish version of Biblical history dressed up as cutesy "Bible stories" and at the same time tell them they are getting educated in the public schools. We cannot say on the one hand say that the historical accounts in the Bible are mere "Bible stories" that are presented like fairy tales and on the other tell kids that they get "educated" in schools where the Biblical truth is denied without reaping the consequences.

Also check out Do You Know What Your Children Are Being Taught in School? as an additional resource.
