The Bible teaches us that we are to train a child up in the way they should go and they will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6) We are also told in Ephesians 6:4 that parents are to rear children tenderly in the training and discipline and the counsel and admonition of the Lord. The word training out of Webster's means to guide the growth of, to guide the mental moral development of, to rear, and to instruct as proficient. God is telling us that it is the parent's responsibility to teach children. The school was not intended to take the place of parents.
