Shaping Hearts and Minds - Why It Matters Where Your Child Goes to School is for parents looking for a better education for their children.
Six hours. Five days a week. Where is your child?
Schools are in the business of shaping children.
Shaping what they know.

Shaping who your child will become.
Where you send your child to school makes all the difference.
Shaping Hearts and Minds makes a compelling case for classical Christian education. Its short, engaging chapters make it an ideal resource for parents looking for an exceptional education for their children. Through topics such as raising kids in a bubble, what the heart has to do with it, and the "religion" of public schools, it clearly differentiates the classical Christian model and shows parents how their own public school education actually measures up.
This is "a must-read for parents considering a classical Christian education for their children." Courtney Palumbo - Head of School - Regents School of Charlottesville.
"The Whatleys have done a fine job laying down the essential building blocks and foundational principles for a type of education most desperately needed in our modern, and now postmodern, world. It is my hope and prayer that this little book will help spark a big classical Christian movement..." Lois A. Markos - Classical Education Speaker - Professor of English at Houston Baptist University
