From Educational Excellence to Mediocrity
More than six decades ago, in 1955 to be exact, Rudolph Flesch wrote his best-selling book Why Johnny Can’t Read. “The teaching of reading — all over the United States, in all the schools, and in all the textbooks — is totally wrong and flies in the face of all logic and common sense,” he warned at the time. It was not necessary to be a reading expert to recognize that he was right. How could the abandonment of intensive phonics (teaching reading on the basis of sounds) in favor of the “whole word” method (as if each word was a whole symbol) not cause the deterioration in reading skills that followed? Yet top educators — those who shape education policy via their positions in teachers’ colleges, publishing houses, and government education bureaucracies — did not listen. In 1981, Flesch wrote a sequel to his classic, entitled Why Johnny Still Can’t Read. No matter; the problem persists to this day.

When I see junior high kids visit the local library, they are not opening books unless they are with a private tutor working on some school assignment. They are all using their smartphones to text; I don't even see them carry on conversations on the phone. So I guess they can read their smartphones, but I am not sure since it could all be images like those used at fast food cash registers.
Most of the British libraries were cleared out of old works and sources 15 years ago, and these were replaced with pure fiction, of no content or moral value, and ongoing entertaining stuff.
It is rare to find a book going back to the 1800's,- most of them refelecting the Victorian ethos derived from Christian heritage, or even a decent book from the early 1900's of fair outlook.
Most of the materials are videos, DVDs, gossip magazines about the stars of the film industry, royalty or the sport world, games, fancy stuff of the curiosity like, works promoting New Age, relativism, or fads, books on diets, or the instant-know-how books.
Culture seems to have gone into hibernation.
It is a way of disconnecting a generation from its valuable past, as if nothing of important before them ever existed regarding values, way of life or lifestyle.

We are falling back to the minds of the barbarians...

We just don't noticed it as well, because we are surrounded by advanced technology.

We murder our babies and old people. Why? The same reason the savages did. They are not physically beneficial to everyone else.

We are loosing our ability to communicate properly. Why? The same reason the savages did. We are not teaching our progeny the right way to communicate.

We are stealing from other (aka income tax). Why? The sames reason the savages did. We want what others have, so we'll take by force.

This is the path of those who reject the truths for life found in the Scriptures. We have nearly reached every check mark before a civilization collapses.

We will see how long it takes...

Interesting article. Just shows you that the state - hence bureaucrats are incompetent at education AS WELL AS management of the society institutions.
Government today in many ways is bad leadership.

Fallen world is a lousy place for any human being to live, - Whether Christian or not!!!
