Writing of education of blacks in 18th and early 19th century
America:  "[I]t was assumed that good teachers would flourish at the
expense of those who were inferior -- a kind of academic Gresham's Law."

In "The Free Black in Urban America 18--1850", by Leonard P. Curry
(University of Chicago Press, 1981), p.149.
