ion of America's future, her children, that American taxpayers are perversely forced to underwrite or fund. The author documents how godless socialists and communists captured arguably the best educational system in the world and purposely displaced and replaced it with what is one of the worst by treating children as animals without a soul and spirit in such Pavlovian and Skinnerian dehumanizing programs as "Operant Conditioning".
The Leipzig Connection Kindle Edition by Paolo Lionni
n the final years of the 19th century, a great transformation began in American education. By the end of the first world war, Americans would notice increasingly a change in the way their children were being educated. In the succeeding decades, the same schools that once nurtured the American dream would become infested with drugs and crime, and high schools would be graduating students who could barely read, spell, or do simple arithmetic. The ongoing debasement of philosophy and ethics, and its social consequences, is a tangled tale. Those who would contend, with Wilhelm Wundt of Leipzig University in Germany, that history and its processes are responsible for the formation of individuals and their views (rather than the reverse) will undoubtedly find the approach in this book unpalatable; then again, not everyone would want this tale untangled.
This book is a readable short history of the systematic and strategic deconstruction and destruction of American elementary and secondary education from the early 1900s to the present.
It is an expose of the progressive enslavement of the soul and mind of children in the public(government) school system.
The human product is collectivized, mentally sterilized, and forever after emotionally and spiritually deformed, disabled and infantilized.
The child who has been so processed has no genuine economic future beyond the most menial and dehumanizing of occupations; this is called officially "Outcome Based Education" and "Mastery Learning" among other deceitful labels.
