How our schools turn children into monsters


I've never been very interested in Ayn Rand until someone told me about a 1970 essay where she explains how Progressive education turns children into monsters. This is everything I’ve been writing about for the last 20 years. But she took it further and deeper. Nothing escapes her clinical gaze. She is actually a great child psychologist.

If you’ve always suspected there are a lot of suspect ideas in our K-12, my article won’t surprise you. If you’re hanging on to hope that Progressive is synonymous with Wonderful, you will not be happy.

Rand’s essay is impossibly long (about 17,000 words). I selected all the best passages for my article. It’s a good read and has drawn a lot of interest.

Addendum: this article prompted Kerry Lutz to invite me on his radio/podcast show for a general discussion of education topics: Financial Survival Network --
