Address Quotes

Originally published in The Education Liberator, Vol. 2, No. 7, August/September 1996 

Modern education means handing down the customs of the minority, and rooting out the customs of the majority.


G. K. Chesterton, What's Wrong with the World (1910), p. 312

(Thank you, Barbara Anderson, Arvada, CO)



America's great social, political and innovative strength is in decentralization. But that strength, the American spirit, is shackled, to disastrous effect, in the field of education, where the key tenets of socialism, central planning and state monopoly prevail.


Tom Shuford, teacher, Bayville, New York
