Education – destiny of the republic

Education, to educate, is neither good nor bad. No virtue can be assigned to a verb, but who is teaching and what is being taught is where virtue can be measured.

“That depends on who keeps the school and what is taught there. The schoolhouse May become a place for polishing fiends and graduating outlaws.”

“‘What you sow in the school you reap in the nation.’ Correct principles sown in the soil of the young mind… and ripened by the sun of gracious Providence… will sacredly preserve the past and guarantee the glory of the future.”
