QUOTE OF THE MONTH:
JEFFERSON KNEW THE WISDOM
OF SEPARATION OF SCHOOL AND STATE
Here's a word from one of America's smartest citizens ever, that should be taken to heart by all those who want a happy ending for Nebraska's Class I and OPS controversies that are splitting our state apart right now.
The answer: take schools private.
"If it is believed that these elementary schools will be better managed by the governor and council, the commissioners of the literary fund, or any other general authority of the government, than by the parents within each ward, it is a belief against all experience."
-- Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph C. Cabell, 1816
