Traditional Education versus Social Engineering

That title is the central conflict that has been playing out over the last hundred years.

 Academically successful schools tend to do what has generally been termed "traditional education." 

Progressive schools, on the other hand, do what is generally termed social engineering. Such schools are not primarily concerned with knowledge. They are focused on creating new kinds of children and preparing them to live in a Brave New World.

 As this trend accelerates, social engineering can spiral into education regarded primarily as reeducation.

 This article is short, hardly 500 words, but it provides a way to view and analyze what has been going on since John Dewey appeared on the scene.

 Are public schools becoming reeducation camps?
