Christian Education Resolution: An interview with Bruce Shortt

Vol. 55, Prg. 1–5
September 13–17, 2004

A resolution submitted at the Southern Baptist Convention’s 2004 annual meeting called on all Southern Baptists to remove their children from the public schools. Although the Christian Education Resolution was not adopted by the convention, cosponsor Bruce Shortt still considers it imperative that Christian parents either send their children to Christian private schools or homeschool them. This week, he joins host Mike Smith to explain why.
