Christian Education Programs

Monday, December 28th, 2009

The curriculum offered in the Christian education programs for children that attend private schools is very similar to that offered in the public school system. There are many additions though, that make attending school in a Christian environment very appealing to parents. Students are afforded an education that is more personable and complete. Christian school teachers find the time to cover a broad spectrum of courses and some of those courses are not available through the public schools.

The Bible is a standard textbook at a private school operated by Christian church organizations. The basic teachings of the Bible are included in the day to day operations at the school and teachers rarely worry about drugs or guns being present in the classroom or on the school campus. Children learn in classrooms that are cool and comfortable in the summer months and warm in the winter.

Private schools can operate on a religious program that is not endorsed by State law. The bare mention of God is prohibited in the public school system and the Ten Commandments have been removed from Government buildings. Children are free to discuss religion and learn about the history of the world through the teachings that are written in the Bible.

A Christian school education offers children the opportunity to participate in sports programs that are very competitive and many students earn scholarships for college through the excellence of their participation in these sports. The children receive a well-rounded education that includes academics, cultural and arts programs in the curriculum that is offered.

A Christian education path allows students to join bands and participate in band competitions. There are also opportunities for children to take piano classes from teachers who are at the top of their field in the musical world. The Christian choral groups learn to raise their voices high to promote and praise God for the glory of being alive and loved. Parents place their trust in the Christian school programs and they are never let down in any way.

Dyslexia is a disability wherein a person experiences difficulty to read. The difficulty is manifested when a person has a hard time learning to read or write any form of writing system, like the alphabet. Dyslexic people also find it hard to discern rhyming words and often misspell words because of their inability to differentiate the spoken and the written word. If there are people who find it hard to read, there are also those who find it hard to speak and write. People with dysphasia or aphasia find difficulty in speaking and their speech tend to be incomprehensible.

A lot of people claim they are bad in Mathematics, but in reality, there really are people who are unable to learn any mathematical concept. Dyscalculia is a condition that hinders a person from learning math because anyone who has dyscalculia also has an inborn problem to understand math. People who experience this may also have a difficulty telling time or reading the map.

Kids who encounter these kinds of disabilities should not be rid of their right to learn. Special education teachers and tutors are available for them. Special education students are either mingled with regular kids for a certain time, or are “segregated” and taught separated from the regular students. In whatever way kids with learning disabilities are taught, the important thing is that they do not let their incapacities get in the way of their education.

There are not that many special education tutors around because of the challenge incorporated with the profession. Special education tutors may want to consider business card printing so that parents who may require tutoring services can contact them. Teachers can also print business cards and distribute it to parents who want to have their children undergo remedial classes.
