Tax-subsidized catechesis

"How can children be expected to make sense of anything—from science to social studies—if the puzzle always has the central piece missing?"
I've argued before that school choice is imperative as a matter of religious freedom. I was reminded of this again this morning while listening to a podcast of the White Horse Inn.

"You look at the situation today, where kids go to school for 6 to 8 hours every day and they get catechized," theologian Michael Horton pointed out. "A lot of Christian kids go to public schools and they're not being catechized there in the Christian faith. They are being catechized, but not in the Christian faith."
