The ultimate end of man is beyond this life --
This life is but a preparation for eternity --
There are three stages in the preparation for eternity : to know oneself (and with oneself all things); to rule oneself; and to direct oneself to God --The seeds of these three (learning, virtue, religion) are naturally implanted in us --
If a man is to be produced, it is necessary that he be formed by education --
A man can most easily be formed in early youth, and cannot be formed properly except at this age --
The young must be educated in common, and for this schools are necessary --
All the young of both sexes should be sent to school --
The instruction given in schools should be universal --
Hitherto there have been no perfect schools --
It is possible to reform schools --
The basis of school reform must be exact order in all things --
The exact order of instruction must be borrowed from nature --

If we wish to reform schools in accordance with the laws of true Christianity, we must remove from them books written by pagans, or, at any rate, must use them with more caution than hitherto --

Sketch of the Mother-School --
Sketch of the Vernacular-School --

Of the University, of travelling students, of the College of Light --

Of the things requisite before this universal method can be put into practice.
