My own cursory searches don't see it attributed to Jeffferson earlier than 2009 or so.

Dallas TX _Dallas Morning News_ 1 Oct 1925 p 

"Marvin Jones, Congressman, declared in his speech that . . . an educated citizenry is the safeguard of the Republic."

Raleigh NC _News and Observer_ 30 Dec 1926, p 2 col 7

"An educated citizenry is more necessary to the culture and development of the State than anything else under heaven."
