What would schools on the moon look like?

Here is a little thought experiment: Suppose you are starting a new space colony on the moon. You are appointed the governor of the colony. The colonists will soon be arriving with their families. You've figured out some of the basic problems like housing, food, and air. Now you have a big question:

What will your schools look like?

You realize that you have a great opportunity here. You can design your school system however you want. There is no existing system that you have to build on top of. What would your education system look like? Will it have teachers? Will there be textbooks? Will there be grades? What will you teach? What are the goals of your lunar education system?
