(p. 29, "Kingdom Education", Glen Schultz).
Primary tenants of Kingdom Education include assisting parents in the total education of their children, teaching from a biblical worldview, grounding students in God's word as absolute truth, upholding Jesus Christ as pre-eminent in students' and parents' lives at home, school, church and in the community and finally, modelling and guiding students toward an eternal mindset.
