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

K-12 is a war against children

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

 Wednesday, Nov. 23, '22Episode #73 (podcast 7 minutes) about:Best Gift For Smart People—''Saving K-12"Most books about education are boring.

I have always said that Constructivism should be called Destructivism

Constructivism has been a huge fad for decades. I denounce it as much as possible.First of all, it prohibits teaching...you know, that's what they did in schools until Constructivism came along.Listen up, peasants!! There will be no more direct instruction!... Isn't that idiotic on the face of it?Oh, there are lots of reasons for hating Constructivism but perhaps the main one is the hardest one to explain. There is a smug condescending pompous tone throughout Constructivism. Professors of…See More

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. He didn't want them to know all that much. So, the guy universally called the father of American education, is actually the number one saboteur of American education. Dewey's ghost roams our classrooms.News One: Let's Fix Education is now an Apple podcast.News Two: Frankie will be published May 10. To learn more about Frankie, visit…See More

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?
