The Inseparable Connection Between Education and Liberty
A 15 Minute Clip.
"Many Americans have lost sight of the truth that righteousness is the one indispensable ingredient to liberty."
(President Ezra Taft Benson, "The Constitution a Glorious Banner," April, 1976.)
Therefore, we emphasize character training and parental example.
Modern Educational Research - Highlights
Appropriate brain stimulation within the first three years can produce higher brain function throughout life.
Smaller brains result from lack of such stimulation.
Stimulation or lack thereof can affect IQ by as much as 20 points.
Stimulation develops and preserves and/or increases neurological pathways and keeps them healthy.
Why emotion-linked and stress-free learning are important.
What frequency is and what it has to do with learning.
The heart brain, and heart energy and the roles they play in a student's ability to learn.
The gift of repetition.
Food, environment and learning.
Learning the divine pattern of teaching.
Therefore, we offer classes that guide parents in day-by-day, week-by-week activities that stimulate and more fully
develop young minds. We also instruct in the best health habits and environment for a healthy mind,
and provide links to resources detailing the Savior's way of teaching.
Words of the Prophets:
Joseph Smith - If children are to be brought up in the way they should go, to be good citizens here and happy hereafter,
they must be taught. It is idle to suppose that children will grow up good, while surrounded with wickedness, without
cultivation. It is folly to suppose that they can become learned without education. (Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith,
Therefore, we offer classes to parents, as well as students, explicitly outlining many facets of academics, life
skills and religious education.
President Russell M. Nelson wrote:
"Because of our sacred regard for each human intellect, we consider the obtaining of
an education to be a religious responsibility. Yet opportunities and abilities differ. I believe that in the pursuit of
education, individual desire is more influential than institution, and personal faith more forceful than faculty. Our
Creator expects His children everywhere to educate themselves. He issued a commandment: “Seek ye diligently and teach one
another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by
faith.” (D&C 88:118.) He assures us that knowledge acquired here will be ours forever. (See D&C 130:18–19.) (Ensign, Nov
Therefore, we have based our curriculum on 'Seeking learning 'Out of the best books', even by study and also by
We believe as did Presidents Kimball, Benson, and Hinckley, that one cannot be at his best spiritually or mentally
unless and until he is at or near his best physically.
Therefore, we emphasize physical health and well-being.
We believe as President David O. McKay, that:
"True education awakens a desire to conserve health by keeping the body clean and undefiled. True education trains in
self-denial and self-mastery. True education regulates the temper, subdues passion, and makes obedience to social laws and
moral order a guiding principle of life. It develops reason and inculcates faith in the living God as the eternal, loving
Father of all."
Therefore, we strive to teach true and correct principles in all subjects.
We believe as President Eyring that spiritual education should come first, but that that does not relieve us from also
emphasizing and doing our best in pursuit of secular knowledge.
Therefore, while we start and end each day with scripture study, sandwiched in between are rigorous academic and
life skills classes.
And, we believe with Presidents Taylor and Young that it is best to have those teach our children who teach the doctrines
of the kingdom. In fact, we believe that the following quote from President John Taylor sums up the point and purpose of LDS education.
"Let our teachers be men of God, imbued with the Spirit of God that they may lead them forth in the paths of life, and
warn them against the various evils and iniquities that prevail in the world, that they may bear off this kingdom when we
get through, and be valiant in the truths of God. Teach them how to approach God, that they may call upon him and he will
hear them, and by their means we will build up and establish Zion,... We want to prepare them for these things; and to
study from the best books as well as by faith, and become acquainted with the laws of nations, and of kingdoms and
governments, and with everything calculated to exalt, ennoble, and dignify the human family. We should build good
commodious school-houses, and furnish them well; and then secure the services of the best teachers you can, and thus "train
up your children in the way they should go." Solomon said, if you do, "when they are old they will not depart from it."
(Journal of Discourses 20:60)"
