Description

Excerpt from The Common School Controversy: Consisting of Three Letters of the Secretary of the Board of Education, of the State of Massachusetts, in Reply to Charges Preferred Against the Board The agreement between the system of Mr. Girard and that which is in action here, as Implicated by our correspondent, lies in their both excluding Christianity as an essential element of education, in the training of children, leaving that to be procured when, and how it may. Now the Puritans, who founded the Com mon School system, had no such design. The aim of our law (now) is, says the Secretary's report, to secure as much Of religious instruction as rs compati-s' ble with religious freedom and what that is, in the esteem of those in authori ty, may be inferred from what has been said of the manner in which books are prepared for the reading Of our children.
