Student centered? What's all this about?

Started Sep 15, 2021 0 Replies

The whole school system, almost any school system, is there for the students. But that was not enough for the Education Establishment. They had to use the kids as leverage to destroy what was left of…Continue

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

Frankie is loose in the world.An unusual genre-busting novel about an AI genius who brings his latest project home, sure his wife will be impressed, only to find that she is jealous and offended. Her husband is much too interested in whatever this thing is. She drinks too much and everything gets out of control...No violence, no sex, no obscenities to speak of, so Frankie is a good book for students of all ages. Lots of smart characters. (The setting is mainly a university town in New Jersey.)…See More

A quick way to fix the public schools

Stop doing the two most destructive things now common:1. Avoid all the psychosocial innovations, such as SEL, CRT, and many more. These things do not give children the foundational knowledge they need. These things are essentially propaganda.2) When basic knowledge is taught, it's rendered useless by incoherent sequencing and dull presentation.Episode 43 suggests ways to find excitement in any topic.…See More

Dumb is official policy in K-12

Episode 41 explains that the decline in American education started with John Dewey. He wanted children to be rearranged, transformed, and socially engineered.

Public schools teach too little. The result is pervasive ignorance.

The point of going to school is to learn the basic information you need to thrive in life. A lot of this is very simple stuff. Easy for children to learn, if anyone would bother to teach them. I argue that knowledge is priority one. See Episode 39.https://letsfixeducation.buzzsprout.com---------------------Frankie is an upcoming novel of interest to readers who like mysteries, sci-fi, suspense.…See More

Fundamental truth about education. Please read.

If schools are run properly, children will be full of confidence and enthusiasm.If children are morose and failing, you know the people in charge are incompetent.See Episode 35 on this podcast. Hope versus Hopelessness. It often seems to me that schools are organized to produce hopelessness. That's a terrible thought, isn't it?https://letsfixeducation.buzzsprout.comSee More

Education Elite considered as Imperialists and Colonialists

The Left likes to vilify colonialism and colonialists, people who take over other people’s territory. But what else is our Education Establishment but modern-day conquistadors? They think they are entitled to rule over our schools.Short podcast explains the matrix.Episode 32: Education Elite are Imperialists and Colonialists (Feb. 22)https://letsfixeducation.buzzsprout.comSee More

Emergency memo to teachers: please return to real reading

 Illiteracy is still the big problem. The education establishment foisted a phony method on the American public. That would be sight-words, an instructional method that guarantees most kids will never learn to read. The podcast (and transcript) introduces three experts, all women accustomed to working with teachers:Nora Chahbazi, Evidence-Based Literacy Instruction / EBLIEmily Hanford, The Science of ReadingDenise Eide, The Logic of EnglishI don't know these women but their work has impressed…See More

If you're serious about making better schools, consider this...

HERE'S WHAT PROMPTED SOME BIG THOUGHTS ABOUT K-12:I read an article by a professor about rhetoric, communication, grammar, and such. It hit me that a person, to understand anything the professor is talking about, would need a substantial foundation. That's what K-12 used to provide.My epiphany was that the bottom is dropping out from under the younger students. They are kept busy learning nothing. Increasingly, the new information they hear each day is going to echo for a few seconds in their…See More

Here's why a liberal arts education is good for everyone.

All my life I am primarily a writer. But until a few years ago I would never have thought to recommend my sort of education to anyone else.The typical literary education seems to be putting too much emphasis on famous works and famous authors and the details thereof.But the main activity in a liberal arts education is analysis of text. This is the central activity in virtually all things that  educated people do. And where do students learn to do this except in literary work?A lot of children…See More
