Excerpt from Public Lands of the United States for Education: Taken From the Annual Report for 1873 of W. H. Ruffner, Superintendent Public Instruction of Virginia Of course, I do not object to having the top of society educated, but what house-wife is so foolish as to build the fire on the top of the big kettle. We must not neglect the poor and degraded - we dare not neglect them. Our energies are too much directed to the education of the upper classes. What we want is to put our schools under the bottom. Then we shall have such growth and strength among the now stunted and weak as shall make the heart of the world glad at the change.
