Mr Chomsky, who made the quote on the New Beggings page of nadia's journal.

“Most schooling is training for stupidity and conformity, and that’s institutional, but occasionally you get a spark, somebody will challenge your mind, make you think, and so on, and that has a tremendous effect. You just reach many people. If you do it, you may very well have problems; you have to tread the narrow line. There are plenty of people who don’t want students to think they’re afraid of the crisis of democracy. If people think you get all these problems, I quoted before. They won’t have enough humility to submit to a civil rule or they’ll start trying to press their demands in the political arena and have ideas of their own, instead of believing what they’re told. And privilege and power rarely wants that, and so they react to the high school teacher that tries to get students to think may find oppression, firing, and so on.”
