De--Schooling America

January 1977
National Review;1/7/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 1, p20
The article examines why voters in some states of the U.S. have been rejecting in the polls higher budget proposals for their schools. This is because most of the time, the attitudes shown in the schools have been contrary to the values of the general population, such as the banning of Christmas carols and the extrusion of even voluntary prayer. The voters have been saying that they are fed up with the entire process.
