Christian Education, p. 5 & Peter’s Council to Parents, p. 10

“It is the nicest work ever assumed by men and women to deal with youthful minds. The greatest care should be taken in the education of youth to vary the manner of instruction so as to call forth the high and noble powers of the mind… There is a period for training children, and a time for educating youth. And it is essential that both of these be combined in a great degree in the schools… Children may be trained for the service of sin or for the service of righteousness. The early education of youth shapes their character in this life, and in their religious life. This embraces more than merely having a knowledge of books. It comprehends the practice of temperance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love to God, and to each other. In order to attain to this object, the physical, mental, moral, and religious education of children must have attention.”
Christian Education, p. 5

“Why do we have schools separate from the schools of the world? It is that our youth may receive an education in right lines, that they may understand what is involved in the great sacrifice that has been made in behalf of fallen humanity… As it has been presented to me, it is the purpose of our educational institutions to teach students how they may be partakers of the divine nature. This instruction is not to be passed by as of secondary importance. The value of the education received depends upon how the student relates himself to this subject.”
Peter’s Council to Parents, p. 10
