There are quite often conservatives on both sides of the debate.What's sad is that so many people still think there's a debate taking place.
We can't give up. Liberal democracy, the kind that the ideal of the US was founded on, depends on public schools. Our democracy was founded through the debate of passionate, educated men. Sure they were all of one gender, and generally Anglo, but the ideals they proposed, articulated, and demanded had a life of their own. Now we call them HUMAN RIGHTS. Let's keep fighting for the right of all people to learn how to think, and how to learn.
