Day school debate

The Tennessee Baptist Convention quashed a motion promoting Christian schools and home schooling (sound familiar?). The Jackson (Tenn.) Sun editorializes:

"Evangelicals should realize that even if they withdraw their children from public schools, or if they send them to Christian schools, public schools will still educate the vast majority of America's children. Abandoning public education would help no one. Surely the faith of evangelical Christians is strong enough to survive public education. After all, it does represent the real world in which they they ultimately must live."
