For training the mind.

For broader and broader discovery.
For governing social affairs.
For conducting the true life of a human being created in the image and likeness of God.
No schools succeed in this purpose.
Not many people have accomplished their purpose in education, hence only a very small minority of world population care about this most essential matter.
Wishing that the mature human race will rethink about education, providing conditions for all individuals to reach their highest station of intelligent beings.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Education holds an important place in the new order of things. The education of each child is compulsory. If there is not money enough in a family to educate both the girl and the boy the money must be dedicated to the girl’s education, for she is the potential mother. If there are no parents the community must educate the child. In addition to this widespread education each child must be taught a profession, art, or trade, so that every member of the community will be enabled to earn his own livelihood. Work done in the spirit of service is the highest form of worship.

(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 83)
