"The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people and be willing to bear the expenses of it. There should not be a district of one mile square, without a school in it, not founded by a charitable individual, but maintained at the public expense of the people themselves." -- John Adams

"No money shall be drawn from the treasury, for the benefit of any religious or theological institution." -- Indiana Constitution Article 1, Section 6.

"...no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinion in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish enlarge, or affect their civil capacities." – Thomas Jefferson

Wow, I guess I thought everyone liked "Waiting For Superman". Even Alec Baldwin called it a monumentally important film.

One problem with the so-called "reform" movement is that there are people making and influencing educational policy who have no expertise or experience in education. Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course, but Bill Gates, Arne Duncan...and Alec Baldwin, apparently...don't know what they're talking about.
