The Purpose of Education
A Christian Philosophy of Education
by Gordon Clark
We must ask ourselves what our goals are when educating our children. "The end of learning" wrote John Milton "is to repair the ruin of our first parents by regaining to know God aright, and out of that knowledge to love Him, to imitate Him, to be like Him.
The purpose of education
The purpose of education is far different, far more noble than any of these
things. The purpose of education is to make Christian men [and women], transformed by the
renewing of their minds after the image of Him who created them."
