CARACAS, Venezuela - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez threatened on Monday to close or take over any private school that refuses to submit to the oversight of his socialist government as it develops a new curriculum and textbooks.

"Society cannot allow the private sector to do whatever it wants," Hugo Chavez, speaking on the first day of classes.

"...Our strength, because it gives to us truth's ascendancy over imposture, and the rights of the public interest over private interests..." Robespierre, "On the Principles of Political Morality" (1794)
