Johann Sturm: Selections from "Correct Opening of Elementary Schools of Letters", II

"The best kind of school, therefore, is one in which a system of teaching and of morality is scrupulously observed. For although the goal of our studies is a knowledge of the physical world, still, as we said before, if life if separated from teaching and letters,what usefulness does elegant and liberal education have? Accordingly, let piety and religion be set forth in schools and let the youthful spirit be trained for this through the cultivation of letters."
Johann Sturm on Education, Spitz and Tinsley (pg. 73)
