Էջ 21 - Washington a department of education, for the purpose of collecting such statistics and facts as shall show the condition and progress of education in the several States and Territories, and of diffusing such information respecting the organization and management of schools and school systems, and methods of teaching, as shall aid the people of the United States in the establishment and maintenance of efficient school systems, and otherwise promote the cause of education throughout the country.
Էջ 154 - ... impress on the minds of the children and youth committed to their care and instruction the principles of morality, and justice and a sacred regard for truth; love of country; humanity and a universal benevolence; sobriety, industry and frugality; chastity, moderation and temperance; and all other virtues which ornament human society...

In its practical workings it has always been essentially secular, while its moral influence has been great and good. The Bible is generally read without objection in our schools. Much as I value its influence and desire its continued use, I oppose coercion, and advocate full religious freedom and equality.
Էջ 167 - That religious instruction, and the reading of religious books, including the Holy Bible, are prohibited in the common schools of Cincinnati, it being the true object and intent of this rule to allow the children of the parents of all sects and opinions, in matters of faith and worship, to enjoy alike the benefit of the common school fund.
Էջ 179 - I grieve to say . . ., such are some of the teachers, not in remote rural districts, but in the heart of London, the capital of the world as it is said to be, whose schools go to make up two thirds of English schools, and whose pupils swell the muster-roll that some statistical philanthropists rejoice to contemplate.
Էջ 138 - Such a law would create a new crime. I reply, it ought to. To bring up children in ignorance is a crime and should be treated as such. As the most prolific source of criminality it should be under the ban of legal condemnation and the restraint of legal punishment.
