This module/week focuses on questions of education policy. The focus will shift from public schools to vouchers for private schools to the alternative of homeschooling. The same question that can be asked about the government’s role in the category of social justice can be asked about the government’s role in education.
Sources & citations required (APA) Don’t forget to use the Biblical Principles of Government article.
General Instructions Applicable to All Forums:
· Biblical: One separate post (3-5 sentences) discussing Biblical principles such as natural law, inalienable rights, sphere sovereignty/covenant, the Sin/Crime distinction and the institutional separation of Church and State Teacher Remarks: Good discussion but needed more application of the Biblical principles of natural law, inalienable rights, sphere sovereignty, sin vs. crime, etc., as they relate to the topic.
· Constitutional: one separate post (3-5 sentences) referencing the enumerated powers, Articles and Amendments from the Constitution which are relevant to the assigned policy area. Teacher Remarks: needed to dig into the specific Constitutional power of the federal government to get involved in the topic of the week.
· There must be two separate posts. Both posts must focus on the general policy area for the assigned Module/Week. For instance, when the course module focuses on criminal justice, the Biblical post must focus on what the Bible says about what government may or may not do in fighting crime. Likewise, the Constitutional post must focus on what the Constitution says about what government may or may not do in fighting crime. Specific examples should be used and cited.
