 Quotes

"Just abut everywhere we turn the next generation is being indoctrinated to think of themselves narrowly as producers, employees, spectators, and consumers--everything but citizens. I have no solutions to the particular challenges facing urban schools--achievement scores, learning disabilities, teacher shortages--but I know we must change the curriculum in order to change the metaphor of our children from orphans of democracy to its rightful sons and daughters. Who will teach them that they, too, can mount a Boston Tea Party?"

—Bill Moyers, Council of Great City Schools, Oct. 17, 06
