Luke 2:49

KJV - 49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?

Jewish education, which included study of Torah, is compulsory for children age 6. The Talmud instructs that schools should be instituted in every town. Prior this, both parents teach their children informally. Joseph would have been the more learned one compare to Mary since he went to school. Girl's education only became popular in the 19th century.

Cheryl, Jesus' principal teacher would have been the same one that you and every Jesus follower has...Holy Spirit! 

You asked why? The answer to this part of your question you'll discover in 1 Corinthians 2:14 and 2 Corinthians 4:4.

Blessings …as you prayerfully trust Him to teach you all you need to know through His logos (Bible) and rhema (thoughts inspired dierectly to your spirit / heart).
