ISSUESStudents Don't Have to Leave Their Faith at Home

Your children face an increasing level of censorship and punishment for their Christian values that you’ve worked so hard to instill. But students have more freedom to express their faith than you may realize. When a school tries to silence your child’s expression of faith, we are here to help.

Your child CAN:
  • Pray at school.
  • Talk about God in class assignments.
  • Start a religious club on campus that receives the same rights and resources as other clubs.
  • Freely share their faith with others.
As a parent, you CAN:
  • Opt your child out of curriculum that would require them to violate your family's religious beliefs.
  • Choose the best educational environment for your child, such as charter school, private school, or homeschool.
