Blessings to Mankind

"Let our common poepole be compelled by law to give their children (what is commonly called) a good education. Let schoolmasters of every description be supported in part by the public, and let their principles and morals be subjected to examination before we employ them... This plan of general education alone will render the American Revolution a blessing to mankind."

Benjamin Rush
