Side 30 - ... that learning may not be buried in the grave of our fathers in the Church and Commonwealth, the Lord assisting our endeavors, — "It is therefore ordered, That every township in. this jurisdiction, after the Lord hath increased them •to the number of fifty householders, shall then forthwith appoint one within their town to teach all such children as shall resort to him to write and read...
Side 15 - State which may take and claim the benefit of this act, to the endowment, support, and maintenance of at least one college where the leading object shall be, without excluding other scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and the mechanic arts, in such manner as the legislatures of the States may respectively prescribe, in order to promote the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes in the...
Side 8 - Every child, boy, and youth, whatever his condition or position in life should devote daily at least one or two hours to some serious activity in the production of some definite external piece of work. Lessons through and by work, through and from life, are by far the most impressive and intelligible, and most continuously and intensely progressive both in themselves and in their effect on the learner.

Side 37 - The secondary schools of the United States, taken as a whole, do not exist for the purpose of preparing boys and girls for colleges. Only an insignificant percentage of the graduates of these schools go to colleges or scientific schools. Their main function is to prepare for the duties of life...
Side 14 - ... of labor performed, the same pupil has excelled the other, in equal ratio, in his intellectual studies. Fourth, That manual labor institutions tend to break down the distinctions between rich and poor which exist in society, inasmuch as they give an almost equal opportunity of education to the poor by labor, as is afforded to the rich by the possession of wealth...
Side 6 - That in no case the Art of Drawing and designing be omitted, to what course of Life soever those children are to be applied, since the use thereof for expressing the conceptions of the mind, seemes ( at least to us ) to be little inf eriour to that of Writing, and in many cases performeth what by words is impossible.
