  • Demonstrate that Christians are deeply committed to supporting and speaking into a quality American public education for all children
  • Offer a fresh point of view in public dialogue on public education, educational standards, and educational equity
  • Strengthen the importance of “whole person education,” that understands how values undergird the educational process
  • Ensure mathematical and literacy skill development through consistent educational expectations, including complex text analysis, which is a foundation for Biblical literacy for all American children
  • Create opportunities for prayer and/or action by individuals and churches regarding legislation and other education issues
  • Create resources that inform and support churches and Christian organizations in taking action on educational equity
  • Help reduce perceived conflicts between faith and education, science and belief, or other impediments to continuing, positive dialogue between Church and educational leaders in America
  • Help ensure that home-schooled children of faith have equal access and opportunity across the educational spectrum



As Christian leaders, we call for bipartisan support of quality public education that:

  • Respects the God-given dignity and value of every child
  • Protects the right of parents to lead and guide their children’s education
  • Respects the local districts’ and states’ rights to determine educational standards, methods and curricular choices
  • Values the commitment and dedication of American public education teachers from Pre-K through college
  • Values the partnership between teachers, administrators and churches
  • Demands high educational standards and equitable education opportunities for all American children
  • Affirm the implementation of rigorous, clear educational standards, including the Common Core State Standards


We urge our nation’s leaders to work together with this Coalition to implement education policies that support high standards and educational equity.
