As she quotes:
You think the purpose of education is reading, writing, and arithmetic?! The purpose of education is to change the thoughts, actions, and feelings of the students.
P.S. I just got a call this afternoon from a friend whose teen daughter is in a Christian school nearby that has a reputation for integrity. A classmate of her daughter's was committing acts of "public lewdness" (that's all I'm going to say) and apparently has been doing it on a regular basis in the classroom. The administration know about it and aren't doing or saying anything about it.
Please don't be fooled into thinking that anyone at all cares as much about your child as you do! Because you are the expert on your child, you are absolutely their best qualified teacher.
