Schools Dumbed Down Proof
on January 30, 2012
This is a must have book for parents and anyone interested in understanding our educational system. As a parent of 6 grown children I have wondered through the years, WHY all the different approaches in education have not seemed to enrich the process of learning in material and attitude. Why is there a growing deficit in critical thinking and why is there such a great amount of Federal Regulations that tie the hands of teachers in our local schools. Parents are suppose to feel that their children are safe and are being taught reading and writing skills and math and sciences but yet that is NOT the case. I feel sorry for most of our teachers who really would like to do what is best for our children but there are so many restraints and regulations to follow that teaching is a challenge. Yet we keep pouring money ( our tax dollars ) into our schools and are happy to do so because we want the best education and safe environment for our children.
If I were now raising my children through their educational years, I would most certainly HOME SCHOOL. The Federal Department of Education is directing what and how our children are being taught with the intention of dumbing down our children and their futures and Charlotte Iserbyt's book has all the documentation to prove that is the case. In fact, the Department of Education was established to hijack the education of American children.
Charlotte Iserbyt's new abridged book is easier to handle and read but her older book is also good to have as a reference for more documentation of what has been going on in the educational system. Much of the documentation will leave you shocked. Perhaps 10 years ago, one might have said, " this will never happen", but today, you KNOW it has happened and you will be furious to learn that it was the intention of the Department of Education to do so.
The next question to answer is, " What is it we do about the Department of Education" ? I firmly know what my answer is.
Get this book and wake up about what has been and continues to be going on in our schools.
