The Best Education Textbook In Early America...

"In contemplating the political institutions of the United States, I lament that we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes, and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government. That is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by the means of the Bible."
- Benjamin Rush, “A Defense of the Use of the Bible as a School Book”, 1798
