I do not appreciate it when SDAs or Guidemagazine makes a judgemental comment on public school. Sure it doesn't teach godly things but that doesn't immediatly mark it as 'no christians land'. People who go to public don't end up any more messed up than any private school kids. School shootings are not limited to public school. Less face it, there are less kids in private school so of course there are going to be less shootings. I went to a SDA school for a year and there were so many cliques and so many problems I moved to a different school the next year. And not all kids in public school are dumb. I'm in advanced classes (Gifted and Talented included) and I got almost all As. Onl one be the entire year. Plus you don't have to pay to go and there are more opportunites available. So don't say that public schools are 'bad' or 'evil'. You'll find a lot of problems in a SDA school that occur in a public one.

Hi Psalms 19. Did we do something in the magazine that makes you think we don't like public schools? Please let me know. Thanks. Randy Fishell, Editor, Guide magazine

I don't hate/dislike public schools. I don't have any problems with public schools. Yes, I AM homeschooled, but I have never said anything against public schools except I think I said that my parents don't like public schools or something....ANYWAY. I know lots of kids who go to public school, and they are great kids. So I don't have anything against public schools, OR kids that go to public schools. And if someone said something that offended you, I'm sure they didn't mean to offend you. :)

You are right that not all Public Schools are bad and not all private schools are good, but I don't agree with everything you said. You see I go to a private school where there arent clicks (their a few, but over all everyone is friends with everyone). Private schools also have alot to offer too...they are sports, activities, and honors classes (classes for gifted and talented kids who can obtain a minimum GPA of 3.5.) I'm not saying that private schools are perfect either, but I'm afraid what you did was took the one private school you were at and judged all other private schools too. You are right that public schools seem to offer alot, but so do private schools...just let me ask you a few questions--"Do you're teachers talk about God?" mine do quite a lot (and not just the Religion teacher either), "How many kids get in fights--a day?" I have know friends who go to public schools who are so scared because there was fights almost every day some of which were ones where kids hurt teachers. They're are pluses in public schools too, I must admit...more kids to make friends with, more classes to take....etc. But remember in your quest to make people understand that all public schools aren't bad, please don't take down private school just because of ONE bad private school you attended.

Public school is great! If anyone says anything bad about it, go see a public school for yourself!

I agree with you psalms19 I have noticd that kids at my church even adults mention that SDa private schools are wayy better that public. I have felt excluded sometimes and looked at badly even rejected in my chruch just because I go to public school. The only difference i see is that private schol has a bible class and they have to pay tuition. plus you can't really spread the word of God at private school but you can at public school because your sure that there will always be people that need Jesus there..........

Hey, I have nothing against public schools. I go to a public school for a drama class. (For everything else I'm homeschooled.)

I know how you feel. There are problems with SDA schools also, although there is usualy, not always, but usually, better influence and stuff. yes, there are definitely goods about public school inculding the gifted and talented class!

If I said anything to offend you, please forgive me! If I didn't, then you can ignore that last sentence!

Well, if I've ever said anything bad about public schools, it's because my best friend goes to the worst school in the area. So I get all my public school knowledge from her.

It seems to me that people have been watching too much degrassi. Lol jk. Fights don't happen in every public school. (not discrediting guide, just saying this.) Guide once ran a story about a kid who wanted to go to public school for a year, and didn't enjoy his year. That was just one public school. If you haven't been to a public school, don't say anything bad about them.
Speak up, judge righteously, and defend the cause of the needy and oppressed.

I personally go to public schools. The fact is you are more likely to be influenced negatively in a public school. I know people who smoke, watch pornography, swear, be racist and involved in fighting etc in the public school I go. I know this happens amongst public schools and if your faith with God is strong, you will not be influenced by this negatively. Nothing wrong with going to a public school, it's just about the people who you hang with and influences you. Answer these questions to yourself! What kinds of friends do you have at school? Who influences you at from school? How have people changed your character from school? How do you implement your faith at school? Is it benefiting your religious beliefs at school? How long do you spend time with God each week? How long do you spend time with your friends each week? How more time can you spend with God each week?

i know! my pastor is all like "get our kids out of public school!" :blink: they act like SDA school is better. but it's not. the only thing that's different is that in SDA school you can talk about God. but there is still bad stuff. at this one SDA high school, a 15-year-old got pregnant! so yeah, it's not different. people pretend like it is, but it's not

Just to clarify, I did not say or imply everyone in public school curses and no I never mentioned that every conservation in public schools have curse words in them.

Yes, I agree SDA schools may have children doing terrible and despicable actions and that happens in public, SDA and private schools. All an SDA church can do is teach the word and educate their pupils about God which is different to public and most private schools but unless God works within us and we trust in him, they cannot stop yielding to sin- I know from experience. There is nothing wrong having a girlfriend but if she influences or encourages you to sin and separates you from God then you will have to know your priorities are: God or the Girl. I have been in a public school all my life btw :)

I go to a public school and it it great and awful at the same time! You make good friends which are nice but then you hear people saying curse words and making fun of other people! I do wish I was homeschooled because I am kind of a outsider. I have no friends and I get picked on a lot. And I mean A LOT! :(
