What About Education?

[For young adults]

A leader in the field of education in the United States has remarked that this country is developing a "meritocracy." Advancement and recognition are more and more being based on a system of individual merit.

In view of the increasing importance of education, the Christian Scientist may wonder just what role it should play in his experience and how it relates to his spiritual progress. Mrs. Eddy's attitude toward education is indicated by her statement in Science and Health. "Academics of the right sort are requisite." In her next sentence she explains their relation to spiritual progress: "Observation invention, study, and original thought are expansive and should promote the growth of mortal mind out of itself, out of all that is mortal." Science and Health, p. 195
