That America’s public education system is rooted and grounded in socialism has become more and more evident in recent years.
Commentator Charles Morse noted this on http://www.enterstageright.com back on March 25, 2002 in an article. He stated: “That the prevailing philosophies and methodologies of American public education are leftist is not up for debate. Leftists have dominated the federal Department of Education, most state Departments of Education, the teachers’ unions, many teachers colleges, and education foundations for several decades. Many rank and file teachers know this, and have observed the catastrophic results, yet the situation is so rotten that they dare not speak out…On December 5, 1928 The New Republic published an article written by self-described socialist John Dewey, the revered father of so-called progressive education, in which he revealed the true nature of the leftist education agenda. In the article, Dewey spoke of “the marvelous development of progressive educational ideas and practices under the fostering care of the Bolshevist government.”
That’s where Mr. Dewey sought to take public education in this country and where his spiritual descendants have indeed taken it.
