Every father, at least, is bound to see that his sons have the means of acquiring a good political education. He can not innocently suffer them to pass from under his guardianship unprepared to discharge their political duties.
~Andrew Young, The Government Class Book; Designed for the Instruction of Youth in the Principles of Constitutional Government and the Rights and Duties of Citizens, published in 1865.

Would that it were done today...for sons and daughters.
