Editorial Reviews

Review

"CONFORM is an indispensable resource for every family fighting against progressive meddlers in education. With iron-clad facts and unbending reason, Glenn Beck debunks the most oft-repeated smears and lies propagated by the 'controllists.' CONFORM takes on the big money and big government special interests who have profited from the Common Core racket, attacked home-schoolers, and exploited public school classrooms."

- MICHELLE MALKIN, homeschooling mom, daughter of a public school teacher, author, and #stopcommoncore blogger

A Review of Conform: Exposing the truth about Common Core and Public Education"(2014) by Glenn Beck and Kyle Olson

This is not a heavy book and it is an easy read. Clearly written and logically argued this is the book on education to read if one was to pick only one for 2014! The liberal pundits may disagree and in tandem with the usual public education officials, they may try to sabotage this book. Their assertion will be that there is only one problem: we just do not spend enough on public education and not "investing" sufficiently in the future of our children! Allegedly, nothing is intrinsically wrong with the system, only we need to spend more money to improve the children's ailing self-esteem and "clarify values"!

The trend and statistics reveal the grim picture of a worsening situation despite increasing educational spending. In 1945, public school spending, nationwide, per pupil was $974. By 1992, this amount had risen to $5,216 (all $ figures in 1992 dollars). Despite a 5 times rise in per pupil spending (concomitant with a 2.5 times rise in salary for teachers), the results have been dismally disappointing. From 1950 to 1992, we have witnessed a 25 point drop in the SAT math scores and a 50 point drop in the SAT verbal scores, and they have continued to plummet and remain at the bottom of the barrel since that time.

And so the goals of public education have been perverted so that standards have been lowered to the lowest common denominator so that everyone is able to perform well and "no one is left behind." The truth is true academic excellence is no longer pursued; most important is not offending the sensitivities and "hurting" the self-esteem of underachievers, sometimes disrupting youths.

An "educational read" pardon the pun. As usual, the obvious - the first one star review did not read the book and is just a Glenn Beck hater wanting to bring the rating down. If the reviewer had read the book - every fact is footnoted - not created by Mr. Beck. Read the book and do your own research if you have any doubt - especially about the dollars spent on education in the U.S. and the results - you will be shaking your head.

I see that one other person gave one star, and I completely agree with her review. This book was a great disappointment. Let me say that I am against Common Core, and I believe educational decisions should be made at the local or state level, so much of the information in the book supports my views. However, I was appalled at the way teachers are portrayed in the opening chapters of the book. I've taught for 45 years, and 29 of those were in primary education. I was a great teacher, as were most of my colleagues. This book portrays "teachers' unions" as bad guys. Well, maybe they are in some places, but they simply do not have that much influence in Texas. We like it that way. Except for a few years in the early years of my career, I didn't even belong to a national organization. My point is that this book portrays educators in a very bad light, and it is offensive and outrageous. The book also says that anybody, not just teachers, should be making decisions about education. Well, yes and no. (By the way, I am under no illusion that Glenn Beck actually wrote this book.) Do you tell your doctor how to practice medicine? Do you tell your pharmacist how to fill your prescription? Do you tell your attorney how to argue your case in court? No. What the book fails to recognize is that teachers are professionals, and most of the time, we do know what is best for our students.

The information on Common Core was useful, but I think a lot more could be said. Since I have also done educational writing for test-prep publishers, I can confirm that much of the push for Common Core is just to line publishers' pockets. A lot of changes that politicians try to push down our throats have nothing to do with actually improving education; the politicians are in bed with the publishers.

Before Glenn Back started discussing "Common Core" on his radio program more than a year ago I was totally unfamiliar with it. Over the past several months more and more information has been trickling out about this insidious curriculum that is being touted by all the usual suspects on the Left. Now Glenn Beck and his co-author Kyle Olson present a comprehensive and devastating critique of this rather dubious educational initiative in their important new book "Conform: Exposing the Truth About Common Core and Public Education". Here you will discover all of the sordid details and learn all of the powerful special interests promoting this program. They say that knowledge is power and my guess is that once you learn the facts you will join the growing number of Americans who are calling for the rejection of this extremely dangerous approach. Make no mistake about it... the future of our kids is at stake. The Founders well understood that education was best done at the state and local level. "Conform" is written in language that everyone can understand and as other reviewers have pointed out it is meticulously documented. It is the best way I know to quickly get up to speed on this monumentally important issue. By all means, read it and then pass it on to family, friends and neighbors. Highly recommended!
