Sex education may be a good idea in the schools, but I don't believe the kids should be given homework

Public education is a good foundation on which to build a better life for each of us. And if we want to prove to these children who never made the mess in the first place that education is worth the trouble, our schools have to inspire them so they can do what they ought to do. -- Bill Cosby, dismissing the theocrats' arguments for eliciting government financial support of private education, in, "Kids, Here's a Fine Mess They've Gotten Us Into," adapted from his Prologue to the book, Letters to the Next President: What We Can Do About the Real Crisis in Public Education (2004)
