“Recognizing this fact, the papacy controlled the education of the Middle Ages and is today seeking to do the same thing. Luther and other reformers, also recognizing this fact, sought to overthrow the tyranny of the papacy by establishing new schools where freedom of thought would be fostered through faith in God's Word.

Protestants today, looking upon the system of education as it now exists, and tracing there the same long courses in the classics and the sciences; the same degrees granted in a manner similar to the Dark Ages, the textbook containing the same theories, the same terms, the same doctrines of philosophy; the same tendency towards monarchism or the monopoly of education by certain universities, and through them by the same power that has borne sway, should, for the sake of their government and for the sake of their faith, establish schools of their own. As the papacy, by the subjection of thought, builds up a monarchy in place of democracy; as she in the same way overthrows faith in God, substituting faith in man or the church, so Protestant schools should educate children in the pure principles of that gospel freedom which recognizes the equality of every man in the sight of heaven, and makes it possible for the government to be of, for, and by the people by developing the Christian character through faith in Jesus Christ.”
(E. A. Sutherland, Living Fountains and Broken Cisterns, 212-213)
