My teaser is from one of my current reads, the nonfiction book Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial & America's Continuing Debate Over Science & Religion, by Pulitzer Prize winner Edward L. Larson.

"'Schools were not established to teach and encourage the pupil to think,' Clarence Darrow wrote of his own nineteenth-century education. 'From first grade to the end of the college course (students) were taught not to think, and the instructor who dared to utter anything in conflict with ordinary beliefs and customs was promptly dismissed, if not destroyed.'"
