Making The Leap Podcast: Why Choose Christian Education


This week on a new episode of Making the Leap Podcast, co-hosts Chris and Christine Stigall welcome Dr. Josh Mulvihill, author of numerous books and articles on Christian life and education for this week’s episode of Making the Leap. During this episode, the Stigalls cover why some might choose a Christian education, why public schools are failing Christian families and why that may be irredeemable. 

Dr. Mulvihill shares the types of curriculum a Christian school should offer as well as the benefit of teachers being retrained to teach from a biblical perspective. He also talks about the common objectives to Christian education, Christians evangelizing in public schools; and how parents can monitor public school curriculum.
