Liberal-Progressives Teaching America’s Students To Think
Liberal-progressives, beginning with John Dewey’s progressive education in the 1920s and 30s, have opposed students’ learning specific subject matter. Students are supposed to have “experiences” working in groups, being conditioned for the future socialist society that is rapidly replacing our nation’s original constitutional individualism. This is what Dewey called education for democracy
Dewey specifically wrote that history is a dead subject that has no place in a modern, progressive school curriculum.
Read Pat Buchanan’s recap of how well socialistic teachers’ unions and Federal guidelines have imposed Dewey’s dicta.
