EDUCATION: Ralph is right

| January 9, 2022 1:00 AM

Ralph K. Ginorio really hit the nail on the head concerning our system of education.

“Since John Dewey over a century ago, American education has been dominated by self avowed progressives and leftists; communitarian and Utopian materialists. Their policies have increasingly shaped the young.”

“The very terms that define modern education are so rooted in leftist assumptions that you must consciously resist being beguiled. Avoid jargon, suspect prevailing wisdom, and aggressively retain your grasp on the common sense you acquired in the world beyond academia.”

I spent many years getting an education, yet it was the things that I learned outside the classroom that prepared me for the life I would lead. If our kids grow up and want to burn down their cities because of a perceived wrong, we can only blame our socialist education system.

Education is important, for it is there that our children learn about our founding and our great Constitution and the sacrifices made by those who went before us. Many people have learned that if they want their kids to have a truly American education, they will have to teach them themselves.
