The following article, about presidential candidate Howard Dean, is excerpted from
a story that appeared in The Times of London on December 8, 2003.

           The House Prefect Who Would Be President
                             by Laura Peek and Tim Reid
Howard Dean … has described how he spent a teenage year under the rigorous
regime of an English public school. The former Vermont Governor won an
English-Speaking Union scholarship to Felsted School and he writes of his days
there in his book, Winning Back America.

“It was a great experience, but I found the restrictive reputation of the English
public schools to be well-earned, “Mr. Dean writes “I enjoyed the English dry
sense of humour, but a British public school is pretty cruel and the rules are
strict.”His former housemaster insisted, however, that the school was not cruel               Howard Dean
and that Dr. Dean did well there, serving as a house prefect.                        (St. George’s/Felsted, 1966-67)

Dr. Dean was 17 when he arrived in England from New York on September 20, 1966. He was part of a group
of 57 boys and 18 girls, including Erich von Stroheim, son of the actor of the same name.

Dr. Dean quickly felt at home at Felsted and enjoyed sleeping in a dormitory for the first time, but he com-
plained that the school compared unfavourably with his American high school, St. George’s, a respected
private boarding school in Newport, Rhode Island. He boasted in a letter to The Felstedian school magazine
that the locker rooms at St. George’s were “as big as the entire Felsted classroom block”.

However, he praised Felsted’s Music School and dormitories. He added: “What made the strongest impression
was the Music School and the number of people that use it. While St. George’s had a good choir, we had no
school orchestra at all.”

Dr. Dean won a divinity prize for an article on atheism and Nietzsche, with the title, God is Dead. He played
rugby for Felsted’s Cromwell Club—the team for boys who were enthusiastic but short on talent.

Stephen Roberts, the present Head Master, said: “I would like Dr. Dean to become president for purely selfish
reasons. He might come back to visit and then maybe we could show him that Felsted is no longer a cruel
school. It must have been very different for him coming from what, no doubt, would have been a much more
liberal education in the United States.”

After leaving Felsted, Dr. Dean went to Yale. He later studied medicine at the Albert Einstein College of
Medicine in Manhattan, where he met his wife. He has kept in touch with his English school, and revised his
entry in the school magazine in 1991 to list his achievements to date. He will be hoping to update it again next
year.

Why Are You Here?
By Erin Shields (Annie Wright/Brighton College, 2002-03)

I often hear that question. A lot of my fellow students (and probably some teachers too) wonder why some-
one would graduate and then want to return to high school. I have been in the Brighton College community
for nearly ten months and will attempt to clear up the mystery. One of my favorite quotations is from
Eleanor Roosevelt who once said: “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which
you really stop to look fear in the face...you must do the thing you think you cannot do.” The reason that I
am here is simple: to challenge myself.

How can you fully understand what home is until you venture out of its limits? How can you expect to
broaden your mind if you are not willing to takes risks? I found myself full of questions as I wrapped up my
senior year in high school...so I applied to the English-Speaking Union and found my way to Brighton
College.

It is not easy to sum up my incredible experience here, though I must mention a few highlights. I have been
exposed to the “mother tongue”, as a good friend describes it, versus my own vernacular. I will return home
with new knowledge that includes the powers of the Prime Minister, the choral music of Mozart, and the
theatrical beliefs of Brecht. I have made some amazing friends that span the globe and discovered the game
of squash, for better or worse.

Maybe I surprised some of you by showing up without a cheerleading background or cowboy boots. Hope-
fully I was able to explain that Washington, D.C. is a very different place from Washington State, my home.
I suppose I made a few people blink when I shared that I went to the first anti-war protest in London, trying
to show both my government and yours that I wanted to see more proof of the necessity of war. Above all I
have tried to help you to feel a little more optimistic concerning the new generation emerging in
America, because I hope our cultures can continue as friends in the fu-
ture.

I am truly grateful for the opportunities, challenges, and encouragement
you have all given me in my time here. How lucky I feel to have been
able to call England home, even for just a little while. In the years to
come I hope you will consider traveling beyond the familiar with an
open mind and a desire to learn. Maybe you will not choose to go back
to school like I have done, though I can
wholeheartedly recommend the English-Speaking Union.
