Deliberate Dumbing Down of America
by Charlotte Thompson Iserbyt
Publisher: 3d Research Co 1999
Number of pages: 738
This book argues that the academic meltdown in our public education system is intentional. It asserts that change agents have been working at the Education Department to change curriculum, not to improve teaching but to promote a socialist agenda. Their role is to create schools which will mold obedient citizens who no longer have the knowledge and skills to improve their lot in life, but are dependent on government/multi-national companies' guidance to survive.
