Overview

#1 bestselling author and popular radio and television host Glenn Beck considers the hot-button issue of education in the US, exposing the weaknesses of the Common Core school curriculum and examining why liberal solutions fail.

Public education is never mentioned in the constitution. Why? Because our founders knew that it was an issue for state and local governments—not the federal one.

It’s not a coincidence that the more the federal government has inserted itself into public education over the years, the worse our kids have fared. Washington dangles millions of dollars in front of states and then tells them what they have to do to get it. It’s backdoor nationalization of education—and it’s leading us to ruin.

In Conform, Glenn Beck presents a well-reasoned, fact-based analysis that proves it’s not more money our schools need—it’s a complete refocusing of their priorities and a total restructuring of their relationship with the federal government. In the process, he dismantles many of the common myths and talking points that are often heard by those who want to protect the status quo.

Critics of the current system are just “teacher bashers”…Teachers’ unions put kids first...Homeschooled kids suffer both academically and socially“local control” is an excuse to protect mediocrityCommon Core is “rigorous” and “state led”…Critics of Common Core are just conspiracy theorists…Elementary school teachers need tenure...We can’t reform schools until we eradicate povertyschool choice takes money away from public schoolsCharter schools perform poorly relative to public schools.

There is no issue more important to America’s future than education. The fact that we’ve yielded control over it to powerful unions and ideologically driven elitists is inexcusable. We are failing ourselves, our children, and our country. Conform gives parents the facts they need to take back the debate and help usher in a new era of education built around the commonsense principles of choice, freedom, and accountability.

The footnotes and sources used to make this book are worth every dollar! I've tried keeping this information in numerous bookmarks in my web browser and this puts them all together. One of the chapters (covering education spending increases) shows the data of how most, if not all, of our education increases go to the teachers unions and their salaries and not resources for our children. Haven't even finished the book and I already have more information then I can stop fuming over.

The exposure is needed to be told in Beck's book CONFORM for the future of our country. The priciples expressed agree with the views noted in Dr. Ben Carson's AMERICA the BEAUTIFUL. All of his facts are referred to in the appendex, as well as the quotes. Every school teacher should read it with an open mind! The dumming of our school children will not creat the great country we were in the past.

Loooove this book!  It is an eye-opener regarding Common Core.  Replete with footnotes, everything noteworthy is verified and substantiated with facts.  Educators and parents----especially parents---should make this required reading to understand how Bill Gates and the Obama Administration are trying to "sneak in" government control and tracking of all of our children for years to come.  Thank goodness parents across the nation are already wise to the ruse of Common Core.  We all need to WAKE UP and protect our American heritage, culture, and children.
