A wake-up call for Americans concerning public education.
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.
