American Heroes: Students Who Learn

Overview

America is under attack. America has always been under attack. America will likely continue to be under attack. Our attackers are not those who threaten us with military force. Presently, we are well prepared to fend off an enemy who is seen - one who can be defeated on the battlefield.

Overview

America is under attack. America has always been under attack. America will likely continue to be under attack. Our attackers are not those who threaten us with military force. Presently, we are well prepared to fend off an enemy who is seen - one who can be defeated on the battlefield. Our enemy is more insidious, and often supported by those within our government who are responsible for preventing that danger.

Thomas Jefferson warned us of this danger early on, even while the U.S. Constitution was being written. One of his major concerns was that if citizens were not educated to recognize tyranny they might not be able to recognize it; not if it occurred, but when it occurred. He knew the democratic principles of our republic would be challenged. The United States still has not established a basic principle, a standard, that guides our education purpose. This has been the primary reason our education efforts, our education system, continues to fail our students.

This book serves three purposes. First, to show how Jefferson's concern about being educated to recognize tyranny against our democracy applies in our current generation, and during the generation of students who are now in school. Second, to illustrate how current students must be our new heros. Third, to give twenty specific study skills to help those students find their hidden abilities to learning success.
