About Emmanuel Christian Academy

The mission of Emmanuel Christian Academy is to provide instruction in God’s Word and conventional instruction that meets or exceeds State standards for all who desire a biblical foundation: and to serve students who are historically defined as “at-risk” and those who are underserved in traditional systems of education.

As we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. , we reflect on his teaching and their impact. 

From The Purpose of Education a piece he wrote in the February 1946 edition of the Morehouse College student newspaper, we learn his perspective in his saying:

…As I engage in the so-called “bull sessions” around and about the school, I too often find that most college men have a misconception of the purpose of education. Most of the “brethren” think that education should equip them with the proper instruments of exploitation so that they can forever trample over the masses. Still others think that education should furnish them with noble ends rather than means to an end.

It seems to me that education has a two-fold function to perform in the life of man and in society: the one is utility and the other is culture. Education must enable a man to become more efficient, to achieve with increasing facility the legitimate goals of his life.

Education must also train one for quick, resolute and effective thinking. To think incisively and to think for one’s self is very difficult. We are prone to let our mental life become invaded by legions of half truths, prejudices, and propaganda.  At this point, I often wonder whether or not education is fulfilling its purpose. A great majority of the so-called educated people do not think logically and scientifically. Even the press, the classroom, the platform, and the pulpit in many instances do not give us objective and unbiased truths. To save man from the morass of propaganda, in my opinion, is one of the chief aims of education. Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction.

The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. But education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals…

…We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character–that is the goal of true education. The complete education gives one not only power
