    The leaders of an indigenous community in north-east Argentina have put their teenagers under quarantine for 60 days.

    They are trying to limit what they call the spiritual disorientation of their youngsters, caused by the modern society that surrounds them.

    I wonder if Christian evangelism would be considered "spiritual disorientation".

    That's a thought. I guess it depends what exactly is happening outside the village. They spoke of extending the kids quarantine time if it proves successful. Or what they define as successful.

    This fails in that it fails to recognize that mankind's biggest problem is not around him, it is inside him.

    This is a very good point, although it applies equally to the home school and Christian school philosophy.
