A WORD FROM THE WISE…
Funding for religious schools and religious rights in public schools was strongly advocated by the Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson o.b.m. On 12 Tammuz 1981 the Rebbe described in great detail how the removal from schools of “faith in a Creator of the world Who is also its Director” is responsible for the “dramatic increase in crime.”
In an address to the children of the world-with youth organization of Tzivos Hashem, on 18 Nissan 1983, the Rebbe called on the children of Tzivos Hashem, with their teachers, to petition government officials for a Moment of Silence in the public schools, and for “the nullification of the shocking policy that religious schools cannot receive equitable financial assistance from the government.”
The fundamental principle of education is found in Scripture, Proverbs 22:6: "Educate a child according to his way and when he grows old he will not depart from it"
