"[T]he child should be taught to consider his instructor...
superior to the parent in point of authority....
The vulgar impression that parents have a legal right
to dictate to teachers is entirely erroneous....
Parents have no remedy as against the teacher."

John Swett
(1830-1913) Superintendent of California Public School System, "Father of the California public school" system, "Horace Mann of the Pacific"
