education is a vital factor in the meeting of it/
—FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT.
*****
“The most important question requiring an answer today
at the hands of the American people is: What are we going
to do about our public schools? Shall we maintain them on
such a basis as will give our children an education in those
essentials absolutely necessary to equip them as individuals
and as citizens to lead such lives as men and women must be
equipped to lead in a self-governing republic of free men, or
are we going to let them slip back into an era of unenlightenment,
bigotry, and ignorance?”
—HAROLD L. ICKES, Secretary of Interior.
