"Schools and schooling are increasingly irrelevant to the great enterprises of the planet. No
one believes any more that scientists are trained in science classes or politicians in civics
classes or poets in English classes. The truth is that schools don't really teach anything
except how to obey orders."
- John Taylor Gatto, New York State Teacher of the Year, 1991
"Without freedom of choice, there can be no creativity."
-James Kirk, "Return of the Anarchons"
"My schooling not only failed to teach me what it professed to be teaching, but prevented me
from being educated to an extent which infuriates me when I think all I might have learned at
home by myself."
- George Bernard Shaw
