Bruce Deitrick Price's BLOG. Welcome.

Still running at the ed school cineplex: "John Dewey and the Effete Elite." Presenting the antidote.

1) Main site is Improve-Education.org. Articles there are scholarly (in a lively way) and intended to last for years. This blog is for short newsy bits. 2) This site is pro-education, pro-teacher, and anti-Education Establishment. Basically, that's the professors who devise policy. They love social engineering.

A Letter to the Virginian-Pilot



Say Goodbye To Common Core Curriculum

Let's all be grateful for George Will. In his recent column (“Those pesky things called laws," March 11), Will explained the dangers and illegality of Common Core Curriculum.

For three years, the Virginian-Pilot, local foundations, leading citizens, and retired military dignitaries have crusaded for this federal intrusion, and lambasted Governor McDonnell for trying to keep Virginia safe from it.

I do not understand why so many smart people cannot see a power grab when it is unfolding in front of their eyes. If Obama didn’t bribe the states with million-dollar grants, Common Core Curriculum was DOA. Doesn’t that tell you everything you need to know? 

The federal government has no constitutional business getting involved in education. George Will quotes several laws that prohibit the Department of Education from meddling in curriculum. Why doesn’t that end the discussion?

I suspect Obama wants to do to education what he‘s doing to the economy and health care. Now is a good time for all states to roll back their involvement, if any, with Common Core Curriculum. 

ADDENDUM: IT HAS BEEN SURREAL FOR ME TO WATCH THIS NEWSPAPER, AND MANY BIG SHOTS IN MY AREA, AGITATE FOR SOMETHING WHICH THEY WILL SURELY LATER BE ASHAMED THEY SUPPORTED. IT'S FEDERAL CONTROL OF EDUCATION BY PEOPLE LIKE OBAMA AND HIS CZARS. NO ALARM BELLS THERE! WHAT COULD GO WRONG? ...I'VE JUST POSTED "PROTOCOLS FOR IMPROVING EDUCATION," WHICH TELLS HOW TO OUTWIT THE EDUCATION ESTABLISHMENT.

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.
