Gateways to Better Education is a nonprofit organization as defined in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Gateways was founded in 1991 to help public schools teach about the important contribution the Bible and Christianity make to the world. We give confidence to teachers and school administrators, and we help parents navigate the public schools so their children graduate with their faith and values intact.
OUR VISION - We envision public schools as places where students feel the freedom to express their faith and where they gain an academic appreciation for the Bible and Christianity across the whole curriculum as it relates to history, culture, and values. We show educators how to do this legally and appropriately within existing constitutional boundaries and in keeping with current laws and state standards.
To accomplish this, Gateways provides:
Practical articles for parents and teachers
Lesson plan ideas for teachers
Adult Sunday school Bible studies for parents
Professional development seminars for teachers
e-Newsletters, and more.
Grateful to Chuck Colson We are grateful that the late Chuck Colson so enthusiastically embraced Gateways to Better Education and supported our work.
