The Foundation

“The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind.” – Thomas Paine, Common Sense

What did he/she say?

“Most of the Founding Fathers would gaze in horror at the idea of the central government’s telling states how to run their schools, but no one today seems much to care for what a bunch of dead white men in wigs would have thought. Not with all that money rolling in from Washington!

I predict that on the dreadful day of judgment, when the secrets of all hearts shall be disclosed, the U.S. government will still be focused on how to get a handle on the problem of education quality and how to make sure, by gum, everybody gets the same share, whatever it costs.

The founders, being wiser, knew that Big Government was less likely to make things happen than were ordinary people, plugged into their own understandings of means and ends. The necessity of strengthening communities and families to encourage motivation and performance — what White House adviser would think of such a thing? I can certainly think of a few who should.” – William Murchison, Education ‘Reform,’ From the Top Down
