Government schools violate the principles for blessings that God lays down in Psalm 1.
For a contrast in blessings vs. curses, please read Deuteronomy 28. Our nation is being cursed in part due to our violation of God’s word as expressed in this passage related to education.
You hit the nail on the head! When I sometimes wonder if we have done the best thing by homeschooling our girls, I reread Psalm 1 and am instantly chastised for even thinking that a government school is a plausible choice.
