So, people, read what James/Denise wrote and then read again what the
founders of the p.s. system had to say:
"Our schools of learning by producing one general and uniform system of
education, will RENDER THE MASS OF THE PEOPLE MORE HOMOGENOUS and THEREBY
FIT THEM MORE EASILY FOR UNIFORM AND PEACEABLE GOVERNMENT."
"LET OUR PUPIL BE TAUGHT THAT HE DOES NOT BELONG TO HIMSELF, BUT THAT HE IS
"We who are engaged in the sacred cause of education are entitled to look
upon all PARENTS AS HAVING GIVEN HOSTAGES TO OUR CAUSE."
"Third, the state was posited as the TRUE PARENT of children."
