Bruce Deitrick Price's BLOG. Welcome.

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

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.

Public Schools are Occupied Territory


It's sad to say but seems entirely true: nothing good comes from our Education Establishment. They are all socialists or perhaps fascists. 

They never think in terms of "let's teach lots of wonderful stuff to kids of all ages." They think only in terms of diluting content. Here is their apparent plan: teach less and teach it badly so kids will dislike the subject forever. (Reform Math proves that point.)

Americans really ought to think of their public schools as occupied territory, like France in 1943. We need more Resistance. Killing Common Core is a good start.

People are always asking how do we improve public schools. The tone is one of puzzled surprise that we seem to have these odd, unexpected problems, like some blight on a tree. We need clearer thinking at this point. There are lots of natural ailments that show up naturally, diseases, tornados, and such. Our education malaise is not like that. It's man-made, planned, deliberate, systematic, and subversive. Some really ruthless SOBs invent this stuff, and then sneak it into the schools. Get rid of these people and we'll have a wonderful renaissance.


NOTE: The biggest problem that is easily identified and corrected remains bogus reading instruction. Here's a quick briefing on that problem: http://www.edarticle.com/article.php?id=38556

About Me

My photo

Remain a novelist, artist, poet, and art director.
But main activity is writing about education reform (always with full name, Bruce Deitrick Price). The schools, now bad due to ideology and laziness, could be easily improved.
I invite everyone to join my crusade or start your own. The worst thing is letting the Education Establishment continue its reign of incompetence.
Visit Improve-Education.org. (Or Google Bruce Deitrick Price and any education topic; you'll probably find some interesting articles. I have 300 ed articles, videos, and book reviews on web. Please use them in your own battles.)
