NACE/CEE Concerns:
  • NACE/CEE is not trying to “Christianize” the public schools.
    • NACE/CEE believes traditional moral values should be upheld in the classroom.
    • NACE/CEE wants “SAFE PASSAGE”--The opportunity for education without Christian beliefs and values being destroyed.

  • It appears that NACE/CEE policies may be changing somewhat from a focus on school reform to a focus on leaving the public school for Christian or home school.
