About this Book
Revived over 25 years ago, Classical Christian Education (CCE) remains the fastest growing form of schooling in America.
First Things First seeks to assist these non-profit schools and educators to stay on track with biblical and practical advice and helps them maintain or grow in excellence in their ministry to children, their families, and their churches. The book’s thesis is “To avoid running off the rails, classical Christian schools need to keep first things first and to recognize, identify, and act upon red flags.” Twelve chapters represent each constituent of a school together at a round table. Each chapter depicts one of these constituents: your school’s vision, your school’s culture in the midst of secular culture, your school’s board, administrators, faculty & staff, curriculum, parents, students, feeder churches, community, volunteers, and alumni & donors. Through interviews and case studies, each chapter delves into healthy schools’ practices to keep first things first, common red flags that indicate possible trouble ahead, trends to track, and a spectrum of strategies and suggestions from master educators, as well as reflective questions for individuals and groups. Throughout, Christ is central.
