a fitting successor to the education president:
If the schools are doing their job, we should expect educators to point to the significant and indisputable
achievement in raising the intellectual level of the nation - measured perhaps by larger

and radio programs, by the higher standards of political debate, by increased respect for freedom of speech
and of thought, by marked decline in such evidence of mental retardation as the incessant reading of comic
books by adults.
--A. E. Bestor, Education Wastelands, 1953
Via, if memory serves, C Wright Mills.
