"As a general thing the only persons who have a legal right to give orders to the teacher are his employers, namely, the committee in some States, and in others the directors or trustees. If his conduct is approved by his employers the parents have no remedy as against him or them."
John Swett
(1830-1913) Superintendent of California Public School System, "Father of the California public school" system, "Horace Mann of the Pacific"
John Swett's Biennial Report, 1864, page 166

Reader comments about this quote:
A good Marxist theologian. Trained well in the worship of his totalitarian / socialist god (government)  illuminating well, California and the nation's demise. As a lawful right in a republican form of government, the only persons who may give orders in an educational setting are individual sovereigns. The de jure State(s) (individually and united) is/are to be secular expressions of the individual sovereign's inalienable rights and liberty at nature's law - NOT, the socialist's collective god dogma.

    There's really no order giving in education. All lessons are presented with the same reasonable force and influences as 1+1=2.  If you're being ordered or giving orders you're simply not in the education field. The educator presents their lesson, supporting evidence is supplied.  You need not order 1+1=2.  The equation supports itself. The educator presents facts and the facts stand on their own accord. If you are giving orders you are simply not in the life reasoning promoting educational dimension. Facts support life, and life supports the facts.
