“There is no school equal to a decent home and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“The plain fact is that education is itself a form of propaganda - a deliberate scheme to outfit the pupil, not with the capacity to weigh ideas, but with a simple appetite for gulping ideas ready-made. The aim is to make 'good' citizens, which is to say, docile and uninquisitive citizens.”
H.L. Mencken

“I suppose it is because nearly all children go to school nowadays and have things arranged for them that they seem so forlornly unable to produce their own ideas.”
Agatha Christie, An Autobiography

“Self-education is the only possible education; the rest is mere veneer laid on the surface of a child's nature.”
Charlotte Mason

“You will not reap the fruit of individuality in your children if you clone their education.”
Marilyn Howshall

“What is most important and valuable about the home as a base for children's growth into the world is not that it is a better school than the schools, but that it isn't a school at all.”
John Holt

“As regards moral courage, then, it is not so much that the public schools support it feebly, as that they suppress it firmly.”
G.K. Chesterton

“Once upon a time, all children were homeschooled. They were not sent away from home each day to a place just for children but lived, learned, worked, and played in the real world, alongside adults and other children of all ages.”
Rachel Gathercole, The Well-Adjusted Child: The Social Benefits of Homeschooling

“Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn
 all that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience.”
Julia Ward Howe

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
Mark Twain

“Educate men without religion and you make them but clever devils”
The Duke of Wellington

“This book is not about "homeschooling" at all. School is an artificial institution contrived by man. This book is about educating a child in the heart of the family given to that child by his Creator.”
Elizabeth Foss, Real Learning: Education In The Heart Of The Home
