Wikipedia: Noah Webster
Noah Webster, Jr. (October 16, 1758 – May 28, 1843), was a lexicographer, textbook pioneer, English-language spelling reformer, political writer, editor, and prolific author. He has been called the “Father of American Scholarship and Education”. His blue-backed speller books taught five generations of American children how to spell and read, secularizing their education. According to Ellis (1979) he gave Americans “a secular catechism to the nation-state”. His name became synonymous with “dictionary” in the United States, especially the modern Merriam-Webster dictionary that was first published in 1828 as An American Dictionary of the English Language.

9 March 1981, The Times-Picayune and The States-Item (New Orleans, LA), “Letters: Church and State,” sec. 1, pg. 16, col. 3:
It is ironic that a country founded on God’s laws now is trying to denounce church’s influence on the state. Just as ironic is that a school system that uses Noah Webster’s dictionary and proclaims Noah Webster a forefather of education forgets or chooses to ignore completely this profound statement made by him: “Education is useless without the Bible.”

Education is useless without the Bible. The Bible was America’s basic text book in all fields. God’s Word, contained in the Bible, has furnished all necessary rules to direct our conduct.
