Utopian dictators like Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, and Mao are criminals – genocidal psychopaths who have killed more human beings in the last hundred years than any other ideologues in history. They don't limit their murder to individuals, but to entire nations.
In the United States another form of utopians, the "progressives," have tried to destroy traditional America by strategically dumbing down her people. America's future is being crippled on purpose in order to fundamentally transform the nation, its values, and its system of government. Laid out a century ago by progressive luminary John Dewey, the fruits of his schemes are plain to see today. Dewey got rid of the traditional intensive phonics method of instruction and imposed a "look-say," "sight," or "whole-word" method that forces children to read English as if it were Chinese. The method is widely used in today's public schools, which is a major reason there are so many failing public schools that cannot teach children the basics. This can only be considered a blatant form of child abuse.
American author and veteran educator Samuel Blumenfeld and journalist Alex Newman have taken on the public education establishment as never before and exposed it for the de facto criminal enterprise it is.
Crimes of the Educatorsreveals how the architects of America's public school disaster implemented a plan to socialize the United States by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population, a mission closer to success than ever as the Obama administration works relentlessly to nationalize K-12 schooling with Common Core.
The whole-word method of teaching children to read – introduced by John Dewey and colleagues in the early twentieth century and which permeates Common Core – is a significant cause of dyslexia among students. Public education's war against religion, the "great American math disaster," promotion of death education, and the government's plan to lower standards for all so "no one is left behind" is destroying the logic, reasoning, and overall educational prowess of America's next generation.
According to the Program for International Student Assessment, which collects test results from 65 countries for its rankings.
- In reading, students in 19 other locales scored higher than U.S. students
- In science, 22 education systems scored above the U.S.
- In mathematics, 29 nations and other jurisdictions outperformed the United States
Journalist Henry Mencken said it best in 1924 when he wrote that the aim of public education is "to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality."
It is time to hold the Department of Education accountable for the crimes of the educators.

Once in a blue moon a book comes along that is so excellent and so important that it should be read by practically everyone. This is one of those books. This book will help a person understand what has and is happening to our public education system and WHY it does not work as it should. The roots of this evil were seeded a little over 100 years ago, but have now bloomed (over the last 20-40 years) as an wicked, ugly "flower." This book will help a teacher, parent and/or family understand how dyslexia occurs and how it may be corrected. This book will help people understand that there is a hidden battle (and yet in plain sight) that has undermined the educational system in this country and WILL cause it to get worse unless educated people take action. The authors support their claims with hundreds of footnotes and suggest other reading material such as "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America" (700+ pages) by Charlotte Thomson-Iserbyt and "The Leipzig Connection" by Paolo Lioni (and others). I had acquired the Iserbyt tome a few years ago, but had never read it. This book motivated me to pick it up and get started on it. After three chapters, I've found it to be very, very interesting and I will be continuing forward with it. This book covers so much material in 352 pages (including two appendices, the notes, and the index). The authors discuss the history behind the deliberate agenda to dumb down America, how the U.N. plays into that, the Common Core Standards problem, the best way to learn to read properly (phonics), the problems with New Math, the issues with over medicating children with Ritalin (and other legal drugs), the making of an illiterate and on purpose African-American class (after being mostly literate 40-50 years after emancipation), data collection by the government, the moral relativity agenda, the problems with the multiculturalism agenda , the source of teen suicide, and much, much more. I bought 10 copies of this book to give to friends and will likely purchase even more to give out.
This book will open your eyes to what is happening in our government schools. My jaw is still on the floor after reading it. No wonder the schools are producing nothing but morons! Every parents and teacher in America needs to read this book before we lose our children and our country!
