Overview

Parents, what if your local public school is a menace to your child's mind, education, and future? What if public schools are hopelessly beyond repair and simply cannot give your children the education they need and deserve?

     Do you have children who do poorly in school or are bored or frustrated with school? In contrast to what most public-school officials will tell you, in most cases the problem lies with the schools, not with your children. It turns out that millions of children, including yours, have good reasons to hate public school, reasons that you as a parent should not ignore.

     In his hard-hitting new book, "Public Schools, Public Menace: How Public Schools Lie To Parents and Betray Our Children," Joel Turtel argues that public schools have become so dangerous and such a waste of time for America's children, that parents should vote with their feet and look elsewhere to educate their kids.

     In "Public Schools, Public Menace," the author reveals:

*  How public schools deceive parents into thinking their kids are doing well in school by using dumbed-down tests, textbooks, and grading systems
*  How public schools cripple children's ability to read and destroy their love of learning
*  Why over four million school children a day take mind-altering drugs like Ritalin
*  why desperate minority parents should not pin their hopes on vouchers, charter schools, or the No Child Left Behind Act
*  How these schools indoctrinate our children with anti-parent, anti-American, and anti-Judeo-Christian values
*  22 ways parents can home-school their children, even if they work
*   How parents can give their children a quality, private-school education for less than $900 a year tuition.

     Turtel explains why parents should think seriously about taking their children out of public school, permanently. Children don't have to suffer through 12 years of a mind-numbing, third-rate public-school education. "Public Schools, Public Menace" explores and gives a detailed Resource list of many quality, low-cost education alternatives that parents can take advantage of right now, from accredited Internet schools and computer learning software to inexpensive learn-to-read and learn-math books and home-schooling.

     He also shows parents how home-schooling can be a lot easier, less costly, and less time-consuming than they might think.

     Joel Turtel is an education policy analyst and author of "The Welfare State: No Mercy For the Middle Class." He lives in New York State.

Editorial Reviews

Dr. Laura Schlessinger
"This book is a must-read for every parent. It is sad but true that the public school system in America threatens the values of families and the welfare of students. It is for that reason that Dr. James Dobson and I urge parents to take their children out of public school and either home-school or find private, traditionally religious schools."

Samuel L. Blumenfeld
"This is an excellent, thoroughly documented and detailed exposition of what's wrong with the public schools. The author makes it clear that parents have a responsibility to make sure that their children get a good education, which is no longer to be had in a government school. His chapters on the widespread drugging of children by the "educators" and the negative affects of such medication should be read by every parent with a child in a public school. What can parents do about it? The author outlines the benefits of homeschooling, which is no doubt the best alternative to the public schools available to parents. How can a parent homeschool if he or she has to work? The author addresses that problem and provides some very creative suggestions. If you are a parent wrestling with the problem of education for your children, this book is for you. It's also for the average taxpayer who's been wondering what the educators have been doing with the billions of dollars they get. They certainly don't educate."
