Equipping School Leaders With Valuable Resources

Are you wondering if your schools’ policies leave you open to criticism and even legal threats? The articles on this page will help you “tune up” your policies and practices to lawfully and appropriately protect:

  • Religious freedom for all students and educators

  • Academic freedom to teach about the Bible and Christianity as it relates to history, culture, and values across the curriculum.

Subscribe to our e-newsletter to stay informed on news, lesson plan ideas, ways to keep your schools faith friendly, and seminars we conduct.

Thank you for impacting the next generation!

“Eric’s presentation was professional and informative. This training will equip our teachers with the knowledge they need in order to freely talk about faith without violating the separation between church and state. I highly recommend this program to you without reservation.”

— Dr. Jan Harris, Superintendent in Cullman, AL
