Education in the Christian school is radically different from education in secular schools since it springs from radically different premises. Secular education begins with the assumption that man is born good and remains good if his enviroment is favorable to his natural development. The function of education, therefore is to remove the obstacles to the free and full expression of his natural impulses, thereby making possible the self-determination of his personality. While doing so, it prepares him to be a well-adjusted member of society and to conribute fully to society's progress. The teacher is a facilitator rather than a director of the child's education. He provides the environment and the materials for the learning process but does not impose his own beliefs and values upon the child.
