The coop did an educational (African Biodiversity study) field trip to the Field Museum! They learned that the African continent is home to a rich diversity of habitats that support an amazing variety of plant and animal life (“biodiversity”), as well as human cultures. We explored the biodiversity and cultural diversity of Africa in our Africa Exhibition and so much more.
And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. Is 58:1-12
We believe that the ultimate responsibility for the education of children belongs to parents (Deuteronomy 4:9, 6:1-25, and 4:1-4) and is an inalienable right given by God, which the State cannot create, destroy, or alter. Parents may allow another to teach some of the cognitive information that children need to know, but all education must be under the ultimate control and supervision of the parents (Proverbs 22:6).
We believe education in the home (done by the parent) to be the best form of education, but we recognize that many parents cannot educate at home for valid reasons and support the right of parents to send their children to private Christian schools.
Current homeschoolers are asked to come out for encouragement and to support parents that are considering homeschooling!
Church leaders: We MUST come to together to BE the “repairers of the breach” and restore parents God-given responsibility. By placing education and spiritual instruction back into thier hands. Our Report Ministries and C.H.E.S.S., ask you to come out to get the information to bring back to your congregations! Consider opening up a school in your church….Parents need a way of escape… “Family is Foundational” Your leadership can make all the different!
“Empowering parents to take the lead in their children’s education”
Does your educational choice for your child provide answers to life’s important questions? It used to be that you could count on your children having a quality education when they graduated…but times have changed! Prepare them with an education that centered on your core values and faith.

– March 3, 2016
You won’t believe what the Department of Education (DoE) and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) just revealed about their plans for you, me, and our families.
In December, they wrote a new draft policy statement about “helping” families, and here’s what they printed on the very first page:
“It is the position of the Departments that all early childhood programs and schools recognize families as equal partners in improving children’s development, learning and wellness across all settings, and over the course of their children’s developmental and educational experiences.” (emphasis added)
Yes, you read that right. These people actually believe that they are doing you a favor by deigning to let you be an equal partner with them when it comes to caring for and raising your kids! They’re pretending you’re not already so much more. We cannot stand for this, and I’m asking for your help as we fight.
Our enemies know they hold a very unpopular view of the government’s role in family, and they are crafty. It’s not every day they come right out and let their monstrous worldview rear its ugly head for all to see. Click link below to read full excerpt.
