Strategy for Schools for the Needy

The Music City Oracle has not viewed favorably previous Southern Baptist Convention resolutions, never adopted, that would encourage parents to remove their children from public schools. However, a resolution for the denomination's agencies to have "an exit strategy from the public schools that would give particular attention to the needs of orphans, single parents, and the disadvantaged," is more intriguing. Churches have been much too prone to leave the inner cities and relocate themselves in comfortable suburbs. If churches would make efforts to re-engage their cities and address children deprived of opportunity by the inadequacies of inner city public education, they would provide a valuable ministry.

Marvin Olasky discusses the resolution and his own involvement with such a school here.
