SOLs, and the like, govern the public education domain nationally. This modern education phenomenon is data-driven by state standards reducing successful education to merely what is measurable. Education, then, becomes a definition of what can be regurgitated on standardized tests rather than what can be acquired — true knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. At the center of modern education is the student, not God who is the center of all things. There is no Bible curriculum in state-run schools.
Christian schools operate from the assumption that all subjects belong to God, not man, so each discrete area of the curriculum speaks of biblical truth. Those who run Christian schools recognize God is present in each curriculum area and seeks to show God’s presence inside Math, History, and Art, for example. Like public schools, Christian schools elect to segregate the courses of study into separate entities as if they were disparate in design rather than blend the subjects into a unified whole.
Christian education can have other similarities to public schooling such as benchmark testing, adherence to standards resembling those of public schooling, and Advanced Placement (AP) classes. Indeed, Christian schooling is a better pick than public schooling if looking to merely insert biblical truth in the curriculum.
