When two of the establishment's leading propaganda organs run screeds attacking critics of government schools in as many months, you know something is going on. On the heels of a recent piece in the New York Times trying to smear public school critics comes a new piece in The Atlantic worrying that public support for government-controlled education is imploding. And it is.
The establishment is right to be concerned. Government education has been the most crucial weapon in furthering the agenda to â€śfundamentally transformâ€ť America, as Obama put it, away from a constitutional republic based on Judeo-Christian values toward a collectivist global society. But now, the American people are starting to wake up, as evidenced by the surging number of homeschool students. Whether it is too late remains to be seen.
The Atlantic article, written by Erika Christakis and appearing in the October 2017 issue,...
It is a modern problem that Left leaning Liberalists are taking more control over bureaucratic facilities. But having said that I noticed my son responded better to private education than he did to state schools. The actual product in overall education was better and more productive in the child, than the state provided. Alas money talks!!! The rich get richer and the poor get stuffed is the political position of politicians in the UK, hence the institutions suffer bad management.
"--recognize the key roles played by the behavioral psychologists, sociologists, educationists,&others in bring about this planned changeâ€”through the radical transformation of Americaâ€™s classrooms from places of traditional cognitive/academic learning, where intellectual and academic freedom flourish, into experimental laboratories for psychological (attitude& value) change, using modern technology (the computer for individualized instruction&for administrative management systems) in conjunction with the totalitarian theories of Professor B.F. Skinner& other less well- known social engineersâ€™ continuing efforts, paid for with international, federal, state, &tax-exempt foundation funding, to manipulate &control Americans from birth to death using the educational system as the primary vehicle for bringing about planned social, political, &economic change. (The major change in our economic system will be the determination by industry & government of who will be selected to perform the necessary tasks in our societyâ€”quotas for engineers, doctors, service workers, etc., to bring about the socialist concept of full employment.)"

I would suggest that y'all read the Atlantic article, [URL=http://tinyurl.com/ybxw9l24]]]http://tinyurl.com/ybxw9l24 (Americans Have Given Up on Public Schools. Thatâ€™s a Mistake.)[/URL]---"The current debate over public education underestimates its valueâ€”and forgets its purpose." instead of reading about it The article is good. Not all school systems aren't as corrupt as Chicago's. We had Sec. of Ed. DeVos visit Lincoln
KLKNTV wrote: "I'm encouraged that Secretary DeVos chose Lincoln and chose Nebraska because we have a unique story to tell here," said LPS Superintendent Steve Joel. "It's a story of success and it's a story of 'all means all' with regards to children."
The topic of charter schools, a controversy that's followed DeVos since her appointment within the Trump administration, came up more than once. DeVos says she wants more school choice, while Joel says he doesn't want to see public school funds going to something that might not have as much accountability.
"Public education is all kids," he said. "With limited state resources and federal resources I think it's extremely important that they stay focused in the public sector."
"Government-controlled education" is an oxymoron. What is called education today was commonly--and correctly, I might add--referred to as brainwashing just a few short decades ago. Education develops the ability to think. Indoctrination tells people what to think, what not to think, who to believe and who not to believe. There are only two dominant spiritual forces: God and Satan. When America elected to kick God out of the public schools, it was inevitable that the devil would step in and take over. Now that has, demonic indoctrination and liberal brainwashing have removed every vestige of actual education.
