“I believe in education for action. I believe in telling children the truth about the history of the world, that it does not consist of the history of kings, or lords or cabinets. It consists of the history of the mass of the workers, a thing that is not taught in the schools. I believe in telling children how to measure value, a thing that is not taught in any school.”

– James Bryson McLachlan, Secretary-Treasurer, United Mine Workers Union, District 26, circa 1925.
