Quote for 8-27-16

“Public education does not exist for the benefit of students or the benefit of their parents.  It exists for the benefit of the social order.  We have discovered as a species that it is useful to have an educated population.  You do not need to be a student or have a child who is a student to benefit from public education.  Every second of your life you benefit from public education.  So let me explain why I like to pay taxes for school even though I don’t personally have a child in school it’s because I don’t like living in a country with a bunch of stupid people.”
