Quotation of the Day for December 27, 2011

Another proclaimed: "Mr. Robinson's novel ideas concerning history and the formation of social systems make fascinating food for thought. However, the committee wonders whether show-and-tell lessons which teach the interogation [sic] techniques of the Middle Ages constitute suitable educational fare for third-graders." Blah, blah, blah. What a relief, to get free, once and for all, of administrative interference. Wasn't this the whole idea of behind the home school? Freedom? Freedom to reach out and touch the hearts and minds of the coming new generation--and no bureaucrats around to get in the way.

- Donald Antrim, from his novel Elect Mr. Robinson For A Better World.
