I was surfing today and came across a church school website. This school is run by a Baptist church, just for information, but I've seen similar policies at other Christian schools, both Baptist and non. there are two policies in particular that give me pause. Maybe I'm just a rebel but the first one bothers me just as much as the second: 1) school uniform policies that are so detailed that they describe what sort of socks your child should be wearing! 2) admission policies that exclude children with disabilities. What about these policies honors Christ like principles? The first implies that a Christian parent doesn't have the sense to dress their child appropriately and creates in my mind expressionless little droids or worse, my next thought was that they should all be wearing red scarves around their necks like good little communist children. (My third thought was where are the nuns?) What do they MEAN by "no show socks" aren't appropriate at school? Who cares whether or not a sock has a cuff?????????????? The second implies that children with disabilities aren't "good enough" to attend a Christian school! I'm on a tear right now because my two chronically ill children have been sick and I'm not getting the cooperation I think I should from certain of their teachers in the public school. How much more cooperation do think I would expect if I were PAYING thousands of dollars a year for a private education? Where's the good in this? I can guarentee you that this church(and others I know of like it) calls its school a "ministry". Who are they ministering too? Perfect, smart, whole children who can tow the party line?
