Quotes of the Day

On education:


"In 100 years we have gone from teaching Latin and Greek in high school to teaching Remedial English in college."
~ Joseph Sobran, Columnist


"The more subsidized it is, the less free it is. What is known as "free education" is the least free of all, for it is a state-owned institution; it is socialized education - just like socialized medicine or the socialized post office - and cannot possibly be separated from political control."
~ Frank Chodorov, American author and publisher


"The first goal and primary function of the U.S. public school is not to educate good people, but good citizens. It is the function which we call - in enemy nations - 'state indoctrination.' "
~ Jonathan Kozol, American writer and educator
