PAGE 6 - HOGANSVlLI HOME NEWS - SEPTEMBER 2, 1999 Who Is Responsible ? This is the time of year we see our children heading back to the classroom. Some parents choose to use the public school system, some choose to use pri- vate academies, some choose to use church related schools, while others choose to home school. All of these are chosen in hopes of giving children the best and safest possible educa- tion. In our society, many oppor- tunities are available for our children. However, we still see a vast number of students with subnormal progress. Whether on the elementary, secondary, or undergraduate level, there are below-standard results on achievement tests. Although many students excel, why is our society falling behind other parts of the world? Who is responsible for the education of our children? Deuteronomy y 4:9 says," Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou for- get the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the day of thy life; but teach them thy sons and thy sons' sons." According to the Word of God, the responsi- bility of children's education lies with the parents. Many Rev. Wesley Boatman Antioch Baptist Church lies with the parents and not the church. According to Matthew 28:18-20, the church is to pro - vide for the spiritual education of new believers but the spe- cific responsibility of our chip dren's education lies with the'. parents. Psalm 127:3 says,"Lo, chil- dren are a heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward." If God has blessed you with children, you have been given a wonderful gift, a her- itage. May we not neglect the her- itage that God has given us. If ' our society is to stop its down- ward free fall, parents must once again take up the respon- sibility of educating their chil- dren, both secular and spiritu- al.The children of our land must not be left to fend for them- selves in this modern, liberal- istic, perverted Godforsaken world. i THE WILLIAM CARTER COMPANY AWARDED 13 EMPLOYEES with service awards last week.
