Update: Do Baptists oppose Christian and home schools?

As follow-up to my previous post, I see today that the director of the Baptist Center for Ethics, Roger Parham, has already stated something less than a positive view toward parents who choose Christian schools or home education:
One can't understand southern Christianity and the disdain for public education without recognizing the role of racism.

Some parents who send their children to Christian academies or homeschool them admit the entrenched reality of racism and seek ways to reform culture. They make their decisions for a variety of reasons other than race. Not all Christian school parents and homeschoolers are racists (and not all public school parents are free from racism).
