 PlanetPapers - In Sparta, citizenship brought power and privilege, but required devotion and personal sacrifice
The agoge trained the boys for living the specific life of a warrior soldier, and therefore they were taught to read and write no more than was necessary.
The agoge was supposed to enforce obedience to authority, to teach the boys to endure pain and hardship that may be experienced whilst on military duty, and to enforce the mentality that the Spartan system was the right system; everything in life was subordinate to the needs of the state.
Although a free and easy childhood was given over for the rigours of the agoge, and a family life subordinate to the needs of the military, Spartan citizens were entitled to great power and were accounted for in the highest positions of class in society.

 Classics Eireann: Daron Higgins   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Therefore we can conclude that the agoge did not exist while Agis was being raised, and that its reintroduction during the Hellenistic age did not necessarily have to be the same as the agoge of the Classical age.
Secondly, the agoge focused upon instilling discipline and obedience in its members and that these would not be desirable qualities for future kings, but this did not seem to affect Agesilaus the only king to have supposedly entered the agoge.
If we are to accept that the kings had not been educated in the agoge then the entire royal family must have been exempt from attending the agoge, a very unlikely situation.

His argument is that too often aspects of the Classical Greek agoge have been extrapolated from the better-attested agoge of the Roman period, the assumption being that the institutions were largely set in stone.
113-114), the term agoge itself is not used before the mid-third century B.C. Hence, K. begins by identifying the major changing points in the history of the agoge ("In the Track of the Famous Agoge", pp.
Disregarding this "period of discontinuity" has serious consequences for K.'s argument, as the break between the Classical agoge and that of Cleomenes becomes far less clear-cut (I am not, of course, arguing that there is no change at all to the agoge under Cleomenes).

 Sparta Reconsidered - Spartan Education
First, it is important to note that collective education was considered so important that the agoge was not only a compulsory prerequisite for citizenship, but all adult males bore an equal responsibility for rearing good citizens.
This was manifest in the laws that required boys in school to address all older men as "father," and gave any citizen the right to discipline a boy or youth under age.
Despite a common misconception found even in ancient commentary, careful research indicates that the boys in the agoge were not encouraged to steal throughout their training—only during a specified segment.

κρυπτεία / krupteía, from κρυπτός / kruptós, “hidden, secret things”) was a tradition involving young Spartans, part of the agoge (Spartan education).

But there were other Greek educational models like the Spartan agoge whose aim in education was that the subject be part of the group, a part of the city-state, not a distinct member but a part of the whole.
Education generally overlaps with pedagogy, and this is reasonable, since the latter derives from the Greek terms paidos: child and agoge: lead.
The Spartan agoge also produces children but with the idea of leading them throughout their lives, since they will have to be part of the state and should not think of themselves as a distinct identity (see note).
