Teaching the Trivium

I am reading Teaching the Trivium by Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn with a group (yahoo group: BasicallyBluedorn). I thought that I would post some of the interesting things that I am learning here with the hope that they will benefit others as well.

Distinctives of the Biblical Model of Education
1. All true education must begin with the revelation of God.
The Scripture is sufficient to educate us in all necessary areas of life.
Psalms 119:97-104
Timothy 3:15-17
2. The family at home is given sole jurisdiction over the education of children.
Deuteronomy 11:18, 19
3. Education is to fully prepare children for adult life.
Proverbs 22:6
Genesis 18:19
Titus 2:2-6
1st Timothy 5:14
2nd Peter 1:3
4. The ultimate goal of education is holiness - separation to God for his service.
Leviticus 20:26
1st Thessalonians 4:7
1st Peter 1: 15, 16
All education is essentially religious, and the sooner we realize this, the better. (TTT pg. 39)
Scripture requires us to maintain a separation from the world and its ways. (TTT pg. 40)
