    In his exhchange with Horowitz, Blankfort brings up some very important
    points about the schools and the tie-in of economic inequality with academic
    destruction of young persons. During the '60s, there was much discussion of
    Summerhill, Ilyitch (spelling?), and other alternatives to the schools'
    massacre of minds and self-esteem, but in the years of the Reaction, even
    "liberal" discussion seems to be to the right of the '60s center (--in many
    areas, of course, not just schools--). Still, there is the Boston-based New
    Democracy publications, led by David Stratton, which offers a strong
    political sense of, especially, education issues--a hope based in fact on the
    (radical? '60s?) sense of fairness and connectedness in ordinary persons.
