"Support for the public schools, articulate and unequivocal, should come from every college and university, from every organization of parents and teachers, and school administrators. It is my conviction that the faith is there. We simply have not made ourselves heard as effectively as have the organizations of the extremists, who make noise far out of proportion to their numbers in the State. What the schools need now are partisans who will crusade without reserve and without fear, to drive home, by preaching to the people, the importance of the big question: 'Shall we close the public schools?'"
