“I can’t afford to homeschool.” “I don’t have what it takes.” “I’m not patient enough.” “My kids won’t be socialized.” “My kids are called to be salt & light.” “The public schools in our area are excellent.”

These are the reasons we often hear why parents choose to keep their kids in public school. But what’s really going on in the classrooms, behind closed doors, and on the playground? What are our children really being exposed to and is it happening in YOUR neighborhood?

Join Yvette Hampton, Aby Rinella, and Heidi St. John as they tackle the important topic of public schools and why we need to get our kids out NOW!

Join us Wednesday for the conclusion of this conversation.
