Conspiracy, Crime, and Comedy

Okay, here's what funny. The word "conspiracy" makes some people nervous. (Oh, no, they shudder, it can't be true. Our own educators conspiring to dumb down the schools??! That's too horrible to think about.)
Folks, I'm sorry to tell you this. Saying there's no conspiracy is like saying the mob wasn't in Chicago in the 1920s. Dewey, Counts, Rugg, and the rest of these twits ran a conspiracy the size of Texas. You can't miss it. It permeated every corner of every school. "Progressive Education" was the gang's code for Socialist Education. "Social Studies" was the gang's code for Socialism Studies. Crack just those two phrases (i.e., hear them as the speakers heard them) and the rest is elementary.

PS: the current push for National Standards and Common Core Standards should be understood as just another chapter in this long-running conspiracy. Aiming low. Less local control, more government control. Do you see anything new??

About Me

My photo

Remain a novelist, artist, poet, and art director. But main activity is writing about education reform.. The schools, now bad due to ideology and laziness, could be easily improved. 

That claim is clearly explained in new book  "Saving K-12--What happened to our public schools. How do we fix them?"

I invite everyone to join my crusade or start your own. The worst thing is letting the Education Establishment continue its reign of incompetence.
