Education and the Poor

This is another of the Solas conference videos currently being put up (for free!) on the Solas website.    In this 2013 talk I try to explain why education is so important and why Christian education is the best way to help the poor.   Since then things have only got worse for children from a disadvantaged background in Scotland.   Unless the Church in Scotland gets serious about education we have no right to regard ourselves as the heirs of John Knox whose maxim was where you have a church, there you have a school.

 

Give me Scotland or I die

The Times, The Secularists and the Challenge of Education for the Churches

Now teaching Christian doctrine at a church school is ‘extremist’. Move over Monty Python.
