    •  I think control of public education... (1+ / 0-)
      Recommended by:

      has been a bastion of elite power since Horace Mann and the intellectual Boston elite conceived the system to essentially indoctrinate and control all the immigrant kids in the conventional American Protestant values of that elite group (and keep them in their position of superiority).

      And then in the early 20th century where big business interests essentially took the reins of public education from educators.
