Welcome to the "little edition" of the "big book"--the deliberate dumbing down of america: A Chronological Paper Trail. Since the original publication of the 743-page, 8-1/2"x11" tome, readers have requested a smaller, lighter version. This new version is in response to those many requests. The afterword, glossary, resources, appendices and index have all been removed from the 2011 version. Of utmost importance is the addition of "Update" which covers the final, but long-planned, institutionalization, since publication of the original book in 1999, of three activities, relatively new to the reader: (1) the use of unconstitutional tax-supported (public/private partnership) charter schools run by unelected boards. These schools use non-graded Skinnerian computer instruction to train for the planned economy (school to work); (2) global values-changing education, including International Baccalaureate programs and (3) restructuring of our nation's representative governmental structure, using regionalism (socialism) with its unelected councils (soviets), and communitarianism.

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.
