Education is not neutral. Education is a completely religious endeavor. What remains to be settled is what, or whose, religion.
 
It is impossible to impart knowledge to students without building on religious presupposition. Education is built on the foundation of the instructor’s worldview (and the worldview of those who develop the curriculum). It is a myth that education can be nonreligious – that is, that education can go on in a vacuum that deliberately excludes the basic questions about life. It is not possible to separate religious values from education. This is because all the fundamental questions of education require religious answers. Learning to read and write is simply the process of acquiring tool to enable us to ask and answer such questions. Every subject, every truth, bears some relationship to God. Every subject will be taught from a standpoint of submission or hostility to Him.
