Deliberate dumbing down of America..

Posted 10-21-2009 at 04:27 PM by Budd

Interesting quote from educational expert Charlotte Iserbyt, former Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement, US Department of Education, under the Reagan Administration.

"You think the purpose of education is reading, writing and arithmetic? The purpose of education is to change the thoughts, actions, and feelings of students.

Hitler wanted to control the educational system in Germany, Stalin did in Russia, Mao Zedong in China. You have to get ahold of the minds of the young, where you break the person's values; you break their understanding of their individuality. You bring them to a consensus group; they become a member of the collective.

It's Soviet education, basically - might as well say it - it's Soviet education. You cannot expect to have a smoothly running, world socialist system if you have people out therewho are going to object to what you're trying to do, so you have to brainwash them."

Thank God we homeschool.
