The Education Liberator, Vol. 1, No. 5, February 1996
The heart of the problem is compulsory attendance and tax-supported schooling. It is these things on which an educationist establishment has been built; they provide the levers for the control over schooling. There is a way, however, to free education from the trammels of government control. It is the free market. It is to leave schooling to the market and education to those who are willing to seek it.
Clarence B. Carson, Historian
Whether we like it or not, tax-funded education is losing its viability. Its real enemy is not any particular pressure group or ideological faction. The public schools are being driven toward extinction by the flowering of democracy itself.
James L. Payne, Director of Lytton Research and Analysis
