It is unwise to divorce the lordship of Christ and the superintendency of the Holy Scriptures from any area of knowledge and learning, especially in the education of our youth; yet, America has built a whole school system upon the premise that there can be neutrality in education apart from religious sentiment. The government school system is the most quarantined and protected place from Christian belief in the entire nation. Christians, furthermore, have supported this system with their children, their taxes, and their endorsements.
Timothy Dwight, President of Yale University from 1795 to 1817, said about the importance of a thoroughly Christian education, “Education ought everywhere to be religious education . . . parents are bound to employ no instructors who will not instruct their children religiously. To commit our children to the care of irreligious people is to commit lambs to the superintendency of wolves.” All education has a religious character as it is inescapably based upon views, articulated or not, related to the nature of God, man and the world. Neutrality in education is impossible.
