How Dabney Looked at the World Part 2

Dabney wrote much and well on the subject of education and was one of the most ardent enemies of public, state-supported, compulsory education in America. He continually emphasized three points on this subject: (1). Education must be Christian education, founded on Christ and the Bible, if it is to be good education; (2). State-supported education will prove to be anti-Christian in its effects; and (3). parents are responsible for the education of their children, not the state.
