The Origins and Purpose of State Schooling
George H. Smith was formerly Senior Research Fellow for the Institute for Humane Studies, a lecturer on American History for Cato Summer Seminars, and Executive Editor of Knowledge Products. Smith’s fourth book, The System of Liberty, was recently published by Cambridge University Press.
In this lecture from a California Libertarian Party event in 1983, Smith talks about the origins and political purpose of state schooling (commonly referred to as “public” education).
