The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America: A Chronological Paper Trail by Charlotte Thompson Iserbyt
For years many parents and teachers have known that there was something wrong in the schools but often couldn't put a finger on it. Starting with receiving an invasive questionnaire brought home by her young son, Charlotte started a search which has culminated in one of the most amazing books. The book is attractively laid out and invites readers to discover what has been happening to American education for the past 100 years -- all with quotes from those "change agents" who deliberately set out to have schools changed from individual excellence in becoming educated to groups being trained to think alike and, rather than following the personal goals for life, being readied to walk in lockstep with those who want a one-world government with compliant serfs. The book is organized by decades from the 1890s until the "noxious nineties". The publishers did an excellent job. Surely no other history book has been made so accessible and helpful with as much documentation to peruse so easily. This is an important book, vital to be shared with elected officials in any and all branches of government. Hope is not lost. This information should help citizens work together with confidence to make positive changes. Nothing is out of context. Trends and documentation is traced from beginning to end. Hats off to a grand, diligent and courageous lady whose persistence is paying off. A monumental task.
