"The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people and be willing to bear the expenses of it. There should not be a district of one mile square, without a school in it, not founded by a charitable individual, but maintained at the public expense of the people themselves." -- John Adams

"No money shall be drawn from the treasury, for the benefit of any religious or theological institution." -- Indiana Constitution Article 1, Section 6.

"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilisation, it expects what never was and never will be...nor can they be safe with them without information. Where the press is free and every man able to read, all is safe." – Thomas Jefferson

Wow, I guess I thought everyone liked "Waiting For Superman". Even Alec Baldwin called it a monumentally important film.

One problem with the so-called "reform" movement is that there are people making and influencing educational policy who have no expertise or experience in education. Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course, but Bill Gates, Arne Duncan...and Alec Baldwin, apparently...don't know what they're talking about.
