Christians who work in public schools are terrified of speaking up about their beliefs. They worry that if they say the wrong thing, it will cause backlash or even cost them their job, so many choose to say nothing at all. But in reality, not only is it acceptable for Christians to talk about their faith at school, in some cases it is required by the curriculum! — provided that they follow the proper guidelines for HOW to discuss it.
This week I talked to Eric Buehrer of Gateways To Better Education, an organization that equips public school educators, leaders, parents and students to protect and promote religious and academic freedom regarding the Bible and Christianity. We were also joined by my friend John Neill, a public school teacher who makes a point of living out his Christian faith on the job. We discuss what to do and what not to do in terms of discussing religion in public schools. You won't believe what is possible! All we need is for Christians to become aware of their rights, so they can, as John puts it, "go the speed limit."
