ALBERT EINSTEIN ON ART AND EDUCATION
"The minority, the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses and make its tool of them." from N.Y.Times Magazine November 9, 1930
"The crippling of individuals I consider the worst evil of capitalism. Our whole educational system suffers from this evil. An exaggerated competitive attitude is inculcated into the student, who is trained to worship acquisitive success as a preparation for his future career." from Monthly Review, May, 1949
