The headline is totally counterintuitive....yes, I know that.The longer I've studied education, the more I was shocked by how destructive most theories and methods are.It's a lot like going to a…Continue

Cursive should be in the Core

Started Dec 27, 2016 0 Replies

 Common Core tried to drop cursive and phonics. For me these are signs that Common Core had lost its way from the beginning. I want to present a case for cursive. It has a lot of benefits that most…Continue

Cheating must be eliminated

I think I wrote a long article about this topic six years ago.... But it keeps nagging at me. I suspect now it's worse than I thought it was.Did you realize that people at the graduate levels are buying their papers on the Internet. That should not be remotely possible if the teachers are paying any attention.Meanwhile I think that schools and classes are in some cases completely overrun by cheating. It's a team sport. That is really disgraceful.The main thing that started to bother me is that…See More

American history doesn't make any sense unless you factor in the Comintern.

 That would be the Communist avant-garde, arriving here in strength in 1921. This article is a quick history lesson about the fanatics that beset us. A five-minute read. Just 10 years later, in 1931, the Comintern made a move of extraordinary audacity, and long-term consequences. They staged a coup against phonics, trashing the old books,…See More

K–12: Why John Saxon Is the Brightest Star in Math Education

American public schools are full of pedagogical nonsense: New Math, Reform Math, Common Core Math. If you want the real stuff, look at the textbooks created by John Saxon, writer and publisher. (After 27 years in the military as a jet pilot.)If you are dismayed by what you find in the public schools, read this short piece about John Saxon's life and magic.Here is his secret: he loved math and he loved kids. He especially loved bringing them together. He loved creating efficient, enjoyable…See More

The problem with Socialism is that it's very difficult to back up...

Everything might get worse. There may be no escape.Lenin candidly explained: "The goal of Socialism is Communism.” That's where sociopaths like Stalin are dictators for life.At present, our school system seems to want to be a gateway program for Socialism.

Sight-words Harm Children

There are important conventions and traditions in academic writing. We are supposed to be polite.The problem comes when somebody is recommending something evil or foolish. Sight-words are both. Politeness is no longer a logical option. Let's focus on telling the truth.We are in the very ridiculous position of discussing sight-words as if they are remotely intelligent. They are not. All you have to do is think of memorizing 100 license plates or 100 chemical formulas. Then you have some idea…See More

Public Schools Are Killing Character

--"Once upon a time, schools tried to improve the character of their students. Be neat. Be punctual. Be accurate. Do your homework. Don’t copy anyone else’s work. Dot your is and cross your ts. Remember, practice makes perfect."In a similar way, the Boy Scouts urged boys to be little gentlemen. Scout Law dictates: “A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.”."For much of American history, few questioned these…See More

Tips for Parents with Children in K-12

My goal is to help more people understand the reality of our public schools, which are dumb by design. This takes a lot of cleverness. The professors have to design bogus methods that don't teach the subjects they are claimed to teach. Then they have to surround the bogus methods with an impenetrable fog, so that nobody catches on to the damages caused.These ideas are more fully explained in a new press release:"Education reformer suggests Tips for Parents"Our schools are full of bad ideas.

Why do top educators oppose cursive?

Ten years ago, a phonics guru told me that a reading program without cursive is inferior.He said that mastering cursive accelerates the learning of the letters, which is the critical first step for phonics.Since that time I've become fascinated by the education establishment's weird hostility to cursive. After all, what is cursive getting in the way of? Not much is being taught in our schools.I believe that cursive is much more valuable than the education professors typically acknowledge.…See More

Teachers feeling guilty.... It's a start.

There is a lot of craziness in the public schools. For example, bogus theories and defective methods.One question always simmering under the surface is: do teachers realize what they are doing to the children? In an article on reading, I encountered a startling quote by a teacher who does feel guilty. Unpleasant but perhaps it's helpful. Should she feel guilty? How do others handle this?Reading is a subject particularly full of the counter-productive and dysfunctional. Every teacher ought to…See More

Propaganda and Agitprop -- it's what the Left is really good at. Here is a short history.

From the beginning of the Russian Revolution, the Communist Party devoted vast resources and brainpower to creating the best possible advertising, public relations, marketing, propaganda, and outright lies.The Russian Revolution was hanging in the balance for years. Probably their superior marketing kept them going. Lenin, the great orator, believed in aggressive persuasion.From Lenin to the unrelenting propaganda of CNN, etc., it's a straight line. Brian Stelter is Lenin.…See More

Why Don't the Media Talk About Education????

In the last few years, I've become more and more fascinated by the silence of the media.The public needs to know what's going on in the classrooms. The media won't tell them.Look in the typical newspaper.  It will tell you how to cook a fish. It will tell you where to find a tattoo artist. It will tell you which Chevrolet is a good one...It will tell you everything except why your kids might not know how to read, etc. Education should have a much higher priority.But the public waits in vain for…See More
