There is great need today that parents should give watchful heed to the education of their children. While it is correct to say that many parents recognize that education, considered in its widest sense, goes on continually from a child's earliest days, determining its intellectual, moral, and spiritual status, as well as its physical, there are others who apparently are oblivious of the fact. The point is that since education molds the individual, the nature of the education should be carefully considered and regulated.

Viewed from the academic standpoint, education is a process whereby knowledge is acquired in a subject or subjects and the reasoning power or logical faculty of the student developed. Usually the subject studied is one which is considered valuable in itself, as, for example, a language, either an ancient or a modern one, or a science such as mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, or physics. The study of any such subject will train the child or youth in the collecting and arranging of facts, and empower him to be accurate in the drawing of conclusions therefrom.
