    I favor the idea of appropriate education, fitted to the capacities, needs, interests, and desires of the individual students and their parents. I also favor industrial arts for all in modest amounts, even the academic prodigies, to familiarize all our citizens with the realities of the physical world. Only that way can we avoid the stigma and class prejudice associated with the idea of physical labor, which is essential to the success of our American democracy.

    Do you think that legislators can write a law that requires students to do their homework, show up for class, and make education a priority in their lives?
