The Rules of Engagement in cultural battlegrounds

A thoughtful article at Challies dot com about a Christian response (or responsibility) towards the declining public education system:
We look to be a transformative influence. If schools truly are “prime battlegrounds for cultural conflicts,” as Dr. Mohler states, why would we purposely remove ourselves from them? Why would we give up and retreat from this battleground? If this is where the hearts and minds of generations of citizens will be formed, why would we take no interest in it? If we retreat, we lose our voice.

The article primarily talks about the public education system but the general principle is applicable to other issues we face today. Read it here.
