- The ultimate goal of education is not to produce a degree, but to produce many godly generations.
- God charges parents and grandparents, not teachers, with the responsibility to train their sons and daughters.
- God established the home, not the school, as the primary learning center; the school and church must be recognized as extensions of it.
- The most destructive force in school is peer dependence, and parents must constantly work to protect their children from it.
- God wants the priorities of every family to be built around daily engrafting of Scripture, rather than accumulating man's knowledge.
- The ability of sons and daughters to stand alone is the result not of rules, but of principles thyat assure a superior way of life.
- When knowledge is learned before godly character, it produces pride and arrogance.
- Parents who teach sons and daughters at home must be accountable to a local church (Christian school and the government).
- Sons and daughters thrive with appropriate responsibility, and it is God's goal that they be mature in their youth.
- God gave boys and girls differing aptitudes; when children are taught together, boys are programmed for failure.
- When schools group children by ages, older examples are cut off and rebels usually rise to leadership.
- When the Bible is separated from courses, the contents come under the control of human reasoning.
- True socializing takes place not in the arbitrary groupings of school, but in the real world of children-to-adult relationships.
- Valuable learning time is lost in school; two hours of home teaching is equivalent to six hours of school teaching.
- The key to effective education is not just a trained teacher and a professional curriculum, but a concerned parent and a motivated child.
- God has set a limitation on learning; thus, academic freedom is no justification for studying the details of evil.
