Book Review: Schools in Crisis: They Need Your Help

I am going to be a first-time parent in August and we’ve already started discussing what to do when our daughter is old enough for school. It only takes a quick glance at the news to see that our public school system is not what it used to be, and it has left many Christian parents wondering what is truly best for their children.

This is my first “Frames” book and I was really impressed with the format. The Barna Group has taken a great amount of detailed research about a difficult topic and has compiled it into a short, easy-to-read book, providing a great resource for parents (and others) who are concerned with the state of our public schools.

From the book’s description:

Millions of children are not fulfilling their God-given potential in many of our nation’s classrooms. Their potential and purpose is literally being left on the floor of classrooms in many low-income communities. What may God have called them to do? How will a substandard education possibly prohibit them from accomplishing that purpose? In what ways are Christians and churches accountable for that? How are we our brother and sister’s keeper with respect to a quality education?

Join Nicole Baker Fulgham, formerly on the national staff of Teach for America and the founder of The Expectations Project, as she explores what our role is in solving the nation’s crisis for public education. This Barna Frame explores a critical topic of our time – Schools in Crisis…

If you have children or are simply a concerned citizen, pick up this book. It will prove to be a great resource as you navigate what action you should take.

I received a copy of this book from BookLook bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
