The Bible is the guide for how to live a life of godliness. God knows all things and created all the laws of physics and biology. We can glorify God by learning about his creation.
Education in Biblical times
Most children were home-schooled. The mother took on the role of primary educator, and the fathers contributed as well. Parents were responsible for how their children turned out.
There are also instances in which Daniel went to a school. He was a part of the king's court - only the nobility received special education.
