    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“At the time I began writing the book about Northampton, I had recently been in Haiti to do a story for the New Yorker.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Most teachers have little control over school policy or curriculum or choice of texts or special placement of students, but most have a great deal of autonomy inside the classroom. To a degree shared by only a few other occupations, such as police work, public education rests precariously on the skill and virtue of the people at the bottom of the institutional pyramid.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[When Farmer asked the farmers when they had come to America to work in such miserable conditions, they responded,] Have you ever seen Haiti? ... ... Haiti is a country created by former slaves, kidnapped West Africans who threw off their extremely cruel French masters and created their own new home. It's the only place in the world where this happened, but it happened in 1804, while slavery still flourished here in the United States.”
