Public opinion versus the Christian school

Faulty expectations generate public relations problems and these add a needless burden to the problems of higher education today.

And what Christian classical school hasn’t felt that same frustration? Please notice the clause “reasons the college cannot accept if it is to conceive and implement its task effectively and as a whole.” Reasons the college cannot accept.

What are some of those reasons? Does public opinion also saddle the K-12 school with these reasons? How do you handle that?
