give them a solid foundation and good Cathechesis ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

And the **most** effective religious education is likely to occur in **homeschooling**:

Research by Dr. Brian Ray, founder of NHERI, found that 94% of all homeschooled children retained their faith into adulthood.

The second best place is in a faith based private school:

The Nehemiah Institute’s worldview testing shows that students in Christian schools reject moral relativism at a rate 500% higher than Christian children attending public schools.

So?....It is likely that there are parents who will willfully deny the research and facts. If so, I can sell them a bucket of sand for them to bury their heads.

The inner cities are the areas that need the most reform, yet they have the highest rate of out of wedlock children.

Many of these women are are public assistance, or are underemployed, and can't afford the cost of home schooling.

What do you suggest that they do?

Here is the break down by race of the illegitimacy crisis we have in this country.

Also you need to keep in mind the USA is the only country in the world that offers public education to ALL its citizens.

Now you can either sit around and whine, or you can get elected to a school board and start making changes. How about getting a degree in education and starting your own charter school, or see if you can work your way up to an administrative position and make changes from the inside?

Childbearing out-of-wedlock and absence of fathers varies greatly between racial/ethnic groups.

The highest rate was non-Hispanic Blacks, among whom 69.4 percent of births were out-of-wedlock. American Indians have the second highest rate at 58.7 percent, followed by Hispanics at 40.92 percent. Among non-Hispanic whites, 21.54 percent of births are out of wedlock, and Asians/Pacific islanders have the 1owest rate with 15.64 percent of births being out-of-wedlock.

Large racial/ethnic differences exist in the percentage of births to unmarried women, with non-Hispanic white women and Asian or Pacific Islander women being much less likely to have a nonmarital birth.

In 2005, 69.5 percent of all births to non-Hispanic black women, 63.3 percent of births of American Indian or Alaskan native woman, and 47.9 percent of births to Hispanic women occurred outside of marriage, compared with 25.4 percent for non-Hispanic white women and 16.2 percent for Asian or Pacific Islander women (preliminary estimates).
