New major study of Christian education in North AmericaThe results of the new Cardus study highlighted the fact that Christian schools did not in fact seem to do much better than their public counterparts in terms of academic excellence except for one notable exception - Classical Christian schools. Here is a response by a member of the Cardus research team to this question: "So what can Christian schools do to increase the level of scholarly competency and academic rigor in a form that won't cause them to compromise the spiritual development and cultural engagement aspect of our goals?... the model that most effectively challenges students academically and yet balances the focuses on the other two is what currently is referred to as classical and Christian education."
