Quote from the Text

“Prussia itself was a curious place, not an ordinary country unless you consider ordinary a land which by 1776 required women to register each onset of their monthly menses with the police.”

An Underground History of American Education by John Taylor Gatto, p. 164

Fact Check

Gatto does not provide a citation or any reference for this rather unusual detail so it's difficult to fact check. A review of other texts cited by Gatto offers no reference to such a structure, nor does it appear in reports from other Americas who traveled to Prussia during the same era.
