Originally published in The Education Liberator, Vol. 1, No. 4, December 1995/January 1996 

The question is: How do we break up a monopoly of mediocrity [in education]? The answer is assuredly not more top-down federal or state mandates. Just the opposite. If there is a unifying theme to my administration's reforms, it is freedom.


Michigan Governor John Engler



Education — compulsory schooling, compulsory learning is a tyranny and a crime against the human mind and spirit. Let all those escape it who can, any way they can.


John Holt, Teacher and author



The right to freedom in the area of intellectual development and personal philosophy is fully as important as freedom of religion. Thus there should be a separation of education and state just as there is a separation of church and state.


David Bergland, 1984 Libertarian candidate for President
