Who said this?

"We have trouble in the classrooms, we are putting in new text books. Nothing wrong with new books but we are spending more time on them than the Bible; it is drifting to the back of the classroom. We cannot tolerate this in American education. The Bible's morals are pure, its examples are captivating and noble."

If you guessed Pat Robertson you'd be wrong.

If you guessed Billy Graham you' be wrong.

If you guessed George W. Bush you'd be wrong.

If you guessed Spunky at SpunkyHomeschool you'd be wrong.

It was Fisher Aimes.

Who is Fisher Aimes you ask?

None other than the author of the First Ammendment to the Consitution of the United States of America. He wrote that in an article called "School Books" for Palladium Magazine in January of 1801. I wonder what he would write about the public schools today?

So for those of you who think that the public schools can be reformed just remember to some they already have.
