In the May/June issue of Canadian Lutheran, then-president of LCC East District, Rev. Al Maleske, writes in his article on raising children in the Lutheran faith: “It is first and foremost the parents’ responsibility to raise the child, to surround the child with a protective environment that will suppress the sinful nature and encourage the function of the Holy Spirit in the child’s heart. That means church, Sunday school and, ideally, a Lutheran day school as active parts of family life.”

Is it not indeed the parents’ responsibility to ensure that children receive academic instruction that is consistent with the family’s faith?
