"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

(1887-1966) American author, publisher

"As we all learned from the sorry experience of state-sanctioned

bureaucracies in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, decentralization

[in education] is crucial to both freedom and excellence."

-- Jerry Brown

[Edmund Gerald Brown, Jr.] (1938- ) US politician, Attorney General and former governor of California, former Mayor of Oakland, CA, former chair of the California Democratic Party




"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

(1936- ) American writer, educator, activist, best known for his books on public education in the US
