Format: Paperback
This is an in-depth analysis about the many problems in the public school system in America. While reading it I often thought of Thomas Sowell's damming account of the public school system as detailed in his book "Inside American Education." John Stormer covers many of the same areas and expresses many of the same concerns, but John Stormer does it from a religious standpoint. Both books are very concerned about the declining academic standards in the public school system, both books are explore how children are being brainwashed in public schools, and both books are very concerned with the political agenda of the NEA.

John Stormer starts off by saying that before you can decide on what is the purpose of an education, you have to think about:

1) What is the nature of man?

2) What is his purpose?

Most public school officials have a humanist point of view about the nature and purpose of man. John Stormer points out this leads them in fundamentally different directions than most Christian want to go.

John Stormer quotes a number of professional educators who over the years have declared their intent to remake society, to "fix it up." His opposition to this appears to be what drove him to write this book. He is concerned about the declining academic standards, and the first chapter documents how each year students are performing worse and worse in math, spelling, reading, history, and so on. Most of the rest of the book focuses how in different ways public schools are trying to remake society.

There were a number of interesting points made in the book. For example John Stormer points out that it doesn't take years to teach Sex Education, the basics can be taught in an hour, maybe a couple hours if you really take your time.

This is an extremely well-documented, fact-filled book exposing the deplorable condition of our public school system. I don't see how anyone can argue with the facts---the book is loaded with quotes from those in the educatinal system and excerpts from public school books / curriculum, and he sites each source. I highly recommend it...in fact, I have loaned my copy out to at least 12 people and every one of them, without exception, loved the book...most of them purchased their own copy after reading mine. The information contained in this book will scare you, especially if you have children in the public schools. Unfortunately, most parents have no idea what is really going on in their child's school---this book is a "wake-up call!" Once you begin reading, you won't be able to put it down.

Here is a Korean War Veteran, Father, Grandfather and former School Superintendent who tells you like it is and backs it up with facts! I am giving this to everyone I know. This wonderful author has spit in the eye of the NEA/CTA/and every other brainwasher in this country including the First Lady from New York, Ms. Rodham with the absolute truth about what their plans are for our Nation's children. I am happy to say, not mine. We're homeschooling our kids and they will not be part of the STW program and the socialist agenda for American children. Get this book! You'll read it in two days and you'll want everyone you love to read it too!

Our church gave this book out to everyone in the congregation (700+), but whether you are christian or not, conservative or liberal, you will want to read this book. Everything that Mr. Stormer says he backs up with quotes, statistics, etc. It is unbelieveable, but true.

Format: Hardcover
This is a must read for all Americans concerned about our public educational system. It is a real eye-opener revealing the plans and goals of education "reformers". As stated in their own words, "we no longer see the teaching of facts and information as the primary function of education", which is very obvious by the numbers of high school graduates who can not read, write or do math at an acceptable level. Instead of the 3R'S, programs such as GOALS 2000, OBE, or STW are all part of the plan to create "a new social order". Read about how the national health care plan which was defeated in Congress is finding it's way in the back door in the form of medicaid reimbursements to school based health clinics. The signing up of school districts with the promise that "the potential for dollars is limitless" is being aggressively pursued across the country. Income eligibility guidelines are being reshaped in some states to include all children up to the age of 21 no matter what the family income. I fear in our country, we are like the frog that was placed in lukewarm water and very slowly the temperature was turned up, lulling him into complacency until it was too late for him to escape. Over the past 65 years or so there has been such a gradual change in the goals and philosophy of public education that we also have been lulled into complacency and fail to see the danger lurking. I urge concerned citizens to read this book and pass it on to someone else. Hopefully we will wake up before it's too late and we find we have no hope of salvaging our education system and most importantly our children, the future generation.
