"The purpose of Lutheran schools is to make Jesus Christ known to the students and families. Yet the schools are also educational institutions, which must do the educational task well. Schools will do this when they pursue what is educationally best for each student, within a Christian context and from a Christian point of view. Lutheran schools can never sacrifice their spiritual centeredness for the sake of education or they would no longer be schools of the church. Nor can Lutheran schools forsake their educational purposes in the interests of spirituality, or they would forfeit the right to be schools. It is indeed a tension that needs to be held in balance.” (Lutheran Education Update Issue 30)
