From the Paper:

"Informal education in Israel has existed even before records of Israeli history were kept. Fathers taught their sons on survival skills such as hunting,swordsmanship,archery,animal husbandry,carpentry, and basic farming. Fathers were known to teach children how to predict weather patterns through viewing the heavens (stars,clouds,the moon and birds' flight patterns). Girls were educated by their mothers on home making: cooking, sewing and mending tents and singing.
"Formal education in Israel can be traced to around 1300BC with adoption of the Torah, which literally means "Teaching", "Instruction", "Scribe" or "Law" in Hebrew. Three Torah commandments (Numbers 10, 11, 17) command provision of education in general society.
From the bible, Deuteronomy 6:7 reads "And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." (KJV version). Fathers were expected to know the Torah and teach it to their children. Thus fathers were the custodians of education in Ancient Israel."
