Student Directed Education - Liberty In Action

.

From child-directed home schooling through student-directed university courses and on to a self-directed life - freedom is the choice to act and do as you wish as long as it does not infringe on other's similar rights.



"Whenever is found what is called a paternal government, there is found state education. It has been discovered that the best way to ensure implicit obedience is to commence tyranny in the nursery."Benjamin Disraeli, 1874


"The private sector of the economy is, in fact, the voluntary sector; and...the public sector is, in fact, the coercive sector." - Henry Hazlitt


"If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so." - Thomas Jefferson


"It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights - the "right" to education, the "right" to health care, the "right" to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery - hay and a barn for human cattle." - Alexis De Tocqueville (1805-1859)


"We've been thoroughly trained in government institutions where every day for twelve of our most impressionable years we took a loyalty oath before starting our work." - Hal O'Boyle


"Public schools are government-established, politician- and bureaucrat-controlled, fully politicized, taxpayer-supported, authoritarian socialist institutions." - Thomas L. Johnson
