Trouble In Academia - Yank Your Kids Out Now!

Let's begin with a short quotation from John Taylor Gatto, master educator:
School is a twelve-year jail sentence where bad habits are the only curriculum truly learned. I teach school and win awards doing it. I should know. --John Taylor Gatto
Thanks to Lonely Conservative for bringing up the subject of underfunded teacher pensions.  The education system is a major hot-button for me.  The teacher's unions have created a huge mess.  If administrators try to change anything in the effort to stave off the coming crash of pensions, the teachers will howl and threaten.  Well, the answer is, take away their power.  Parents, pull your kids out of school.  Don't let the unions use YOUR KIDS as pawns in this game.

We need to ditch the public school system and make parents responsible for educating their own children. The country was better off before Dewey and minions pushed assembly-line education on us (and before teacher's unions took control of everything). Everyone should read the book Dumbing Us Down by John Taylor Gatto. After that they should read here the online text version of Underground History of American Education.

One more book that looks like a good read is The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America. I haven't read it but based on a review by Samuel Blumenfeld it looks pretty good.

Lastly, check out The Fourth Purpose.  It is a documentary in the works.  Looks like it will be a great exposĂ© of our public education system.

Go now and read all this stuff.  You will not want to leave your kids one more day in these liberal/progressive indoctrination parlors the goal of which is to insure the cultural and academic illiteracy of your child while creating drones for the state

Thanks for the link! If I could home school my kids I would. I can't so I keep buying books and other material that will have to supplement their education.

Thanks for coming by! I know that not everyone is free to home school, but it's great that you are able to be very involved with your kids. The best thing in the world for kids is a loving, actively involved parent! Kudos to you.

I think half the battle for parents is knowing the truth about what goes on in the schools. It is not what most of them think it is and knowing that, parents can counter the brainwashing that goes on.
