Dewey's socialism is alive and well in America today

America's crippled educational system

I never envisioned what I would find when I embarked on the research about our educational system. The people that are involved and how each of their lives crossed one another. These people, in ways that you could not imagine, have touched our lives. The deceit and lies under the guise of education and patriotism with the final goal Socialism. We are in trouble and the future of our children has to be our first and foremost priority. We need to save America before they turn this wonderful country into Amerika. What I write today is but the tip of the iceberg.

Initially, I researched a man by the name of John Dewey. He is known as the "Father of Modern Education." I documented, chronologically, the principal events of education in regard to this man. What I found was that he was a socialist bent on destroying the minds of the American child. Dewey's belief goes back as far as 1887 with a book he wrote called, "Looking Backward." He was a totalitarian socialist who wanted government to take over all education via government schools. He wanted the government to create an "industrial army" of totalitarian socialism......

Langdell and Dewey mocked and drove out of the teaching profession any teacher than held on to the belief of absolute values. They discarded Blackstone's Commentaries on the Law, which taught that there were certain rights and wrongs that did not change related to human behavior. Blackstone also believed that law came from God.

Dewey assisted the AFT's founder Clara Goldwater in the formation of this organization. Initially the NEA was first called the Teachers Union Auxiliary then became the Teachers Guild. Later it became known as the American Federation of Teachers. Presently the AFT is in partnership with the NEA. The NEA had John Dewey serve on the legislative commission in 1917 when it was formed.....

In 1940 the California Senate Committee investigated various foundations in regard to controlling the training of teachers and promoting specific philosophies. One of the foundations that were investigated was the Rockefeller Foundation. What they found was that this foundation spent millions of dollars in creating new history books. They also found that the new history books undermined the free enterprise system and patriotism. Here is an excerpt from their findings.

It is difficult to believe that the Rockefeller Foundation and the National Education Association could have supported these textbooks. But the fact is that the Rockefellers financed them and the NEA promoted them very widely.

The 1970's heralded the communist and socialist oriented anti-Vietnam war activities, the emergence of the modern NEA openly advocating the use of public education for social change, and the rise of the United States Supreme Court's unconstitutional contradiction in terms called 'substantive due process.'

In 1995, Clinton's unqualified support for the NEA in their use of public education for social change. It was accompanied by the current Supreme Court's "lifestyle socialism." We had the emergence of the "international rule of judges" which was the means of achieving social and economic change under mandate by the United Nations. During this time Goals 2000 was signed into law by President Clinton.

This is the feel good society, the humanist society. It is because of this our educational system has changed to the way it is today. The people changing our laws to reflect conformity and one worldness are the results of this Dewey education system. Laws are being changed to accommodate anyone without regard for what is right or wrong. Changes are being made to how much government is involved in our lives. Changes, changes and more changes until we are no longer a free society but a socialist one. This is why multi-culturalism is the buzzword. It is to prepare us for the one world system.

In my home State of Queensland, Australia. If you saw the years of juvenile crap student-teachers have to put up with to get a teaching certificate you would understand why only dummies can hack it most of the time

Last week, Education Minister Anna Bligh signalled the opportunity for another 500 unmotivated or dissatisfied teachers to take a $50,000 payment and leave the state school system to make room for some of the hundreds of new graduates unable to secure a permanent position. They will join 1046 of their colleagues who have opted for the career change bonuses since they were first offered in 2002 in the name of topping up classroom enthusiasm.

Now we are faced with the reality that a side effect of increasing student teacher places in the state's universities this year has been a drop in cut-off scores for primary and secondary teaching courses to as low as OP16 and 17 - the bottom third of students. The risk, and likelihood, is that Year 12 students unable to gain entry to courses in their preferred field will apply for teaching as a consolation prize.

This is not acceptable in an era already focused nationally on appalling standards of literacy and numeracy. What profession is as vital to the formative years of rising generations as teaching? A good comparison is that the cut-off level for primary teachers at the Australian Catholic University in Brisbane is OP9. Ms Bligh says no score, however high, will help students become good teachers if they don't like children and enjoy working with them. She is right. But taking the gamble that students with lower scores will mature, improve their academic skills and blossom as teachers is not the answer. Part of the solution may be to adapt the teacher training process to mandate better ongoing assessments, including aptitude tests.

Part may be based on University of Queensland vice-chancellor John Hay's urging. Ideally, he says, secondary teachers should undertake a degree in the disciplines they hope to teach, followed by professional training in education. But the warning signal - the amber light is flashing, says Queensland University of Technology's Professor Erica McWilliam - must not be ignored. Universities may have to consider imposing cut-offs higher than those enforced by demand. Students in the bottom third have clearly had problems in some subjects and their experience must not be allowed to snowball.

In 1997, medical courses at Australian universities including UQ followed the example of leading overseas institutions and switched from a six-year undergraduate degree, catering largely to school-leavers with an OP1, to a four-year postgraduate course. This was in response to public demand for doctors with greater skills in dealing with patients. The change has ensured a broader intake in both age range and primary degree, with selection depending on aptitude as well as academic performance. The principle is similar to that suggested by Professor Hay for teachers.

It is not prudent for Queensland to wait to see whether cut-offs for teaching remain at risky levels, or fall even further, before deciding remedial action is needed. The time to act is now.



For greatest efficiency, lowest cost and maximum choice, ALL schools should be privately owned and run -- with government-paid vouchers for the poor and minimal regulation.
