"Thomas Jefferson knew what schools were for — to ensure that citizens would know when and how to protect their liberty. It would not have come easily to the mind of such a man, as it does to political leaders today, that the young should be taught to read exclusively for the purpose of increasing their economic productivity." — Media scholar Neil Postman
