Education Is Out, Indoctrination Is In
Former teacher Ellie Rubinstein has spoken out against the systematic indoctrination that has replaced educaton in schools run by the American Department of Education. "Everything I loved about teaching is extinct," she says, "Real teachers, the ones who care about their students, the ones who teach kids to think critically and not just recite things by rote, are being targeted. Why?
Because our public indoctrination centers, also known as schools, don’t want children to think.
They want children to learn specified “facts” in order to pass standardized tests, thus creating perfect little worker bees. They want to produce adults who will not question authority or the status quo, but merely assimilate what they are told as truth, and act accordingly.
Because of this, the school system is losing those teachers who could make a real difference in the future of our country."

The complaint is no different to many made by whistleblowers such as Kathleeen Birbalsingh in the UK education system, the teaching profession and education system have been hijacked by political activists, ultra left wing Trotskitie shits who would rather hammer into kids how wonderful homosexuality is than teach basic English and Artihmetic.
Have you tried talking to young teachers these days, they are thick as pigshit, afraid of being asked to teach traditional subjects because they can't do them, with heads full of politically correct nonesense they think grammar is unimportant innit? Artithmetic is what calculators are for, history begins and ends with the slave trade and reading material should be confined to books that are "on message".
And they are backed up on this by their Militant Marxist unions the leaders of which will obstruct any attempt to bring back liberal education priniciples.
If we want to save western civilization and culture we must first save education. And the first step towards doing that is abolish the teaching unions and kick out the lefties. Marxist teachers are a bigger threat to children than paedophiles.

The Lazy Pupil's Examination Aid.

Who Should Make Decision About Childrens' Welfare, Parents Or Authoritarian Left Wing Schoolteachers?
We like stories about bureaucrats abusing their authority and about schoolteachers (especiall head teachers) letting their inner fascist out of the closet.

Coalition Ministers revealed their proposals for a back-to-basics curriculum for state schools, with the focus shifting away from soft subjects and abstract studies back to basic arithmetic, times-tables, spelling, grammar, reading and history.
