Southern Baptists work to open schools

READ MORE:

RALEIGH (AP) -- With public schools scheduled to open their tradition calendar year today, Southern Baptists are working to open their own schools.

Instead of calling on people to adandon the public school system, they want to educate a new generation of children who they think will advocate for biblical principles instead of popular culture.

Leading the move is Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest. The school is sponsoring a Christian School 101 workshop for two days beginning today. The program is designed to train church leaders to open private schools.

The 40 or so people who have signed up for the workshop are described as church leaders primarily from small North Carolina towns where there are few private Christian schools.
