Abstract

Junior high teachers often brainwash early adolescents with our answers. This brainwashing sometimes continues on through high school. Those who learn our truths, read our books, write on our topics, pass our tests, learn our grammar, and, if they choose to, pass on to college, make up the voiceless writers of colleges and universities across the country.
