A speech by Ronald Reagan from back in 1966. Short section quoted below. Amazing how his words from over half a century ago echo the truth of today.

Already there are a 135 separate federal agencies and offices doling out money at the college level. Some time ago a group of distinguished college presidents, alarmed at the extent to which academic freedom has been compromised by these vast money grants, went to Washington, and they had a proposal they’d worked out. A proposal for allowing the individual citizen to compute his income tax and then deduct a specified amount and contribute it to the college of his choice instead of paying it in income tax. And the government would be allowed to determine the proper amount that would solve the problem and yet not disrupt the government’s own economy or need for revenue. And thus, they would get around the question of church and state, the separation of same, if an individual citizen chose to contribute his money to a church-supported school. Over and over again, in Washington, they kept asking but why won’t this system work and finally a Freudian slip occurred. Francis Keppel, United States Director of Education, blurted out, "you don’t understand, under the plan you propose we couldn’t achieve our social objectives".

Social objectives – and now we uncover a memorandum, thanks to the Press actually, a memorandum in the community relations service at the poverty program, has nothing really to do with education, but the memorandum is very disturbing, in this sentence: “We should conduct a systematic effort to contact all publishers and school boards, to encourage their publication and adoption of text books, conforming to established standards”. Well, if the government is going to build the schools and buy the books, issue scholarships, make judgements and exert pressure, what if one day that pressure is of a political nature not to our liking? Education is the bulwark of freedom, but you remove it too far from the community and the parents’ control and education becomes the tool of tyranny.
