This is the “Progressive” Ideal for Education

“Our problem is not merely to help the students to adjust themselves to world life…[but] to make them as unlike their fathers as we can.”

–John Dewey, the father of modern American education

So, what did Dewey mean by making children as unlike their fathers as possible?  Well, here are a few hints:

Mother Outraged After 4th Grader Brings Home ‘Adult-Themed’ Homework About Infidelity

Queens Teacher Banned From City Schools For Over-The-Top Sex Ed Class

NYC schools give out morning-after pills to students — without telling parents

But don’t worry, this process of eroding our students’ sexual morality continues on into their college years:

‘Erotic’: CA Professor Allegedly Shows Full-Length Pornographic Film to Her Students

‘Pure Terror’: College Instructor Allegedly Required Students to Masturbate, Reveal Sex Fantasies in Order to Pass

Butler Univ: Ignore ‘American-ness, Maleness, Whiteness, Heterosexuality’

Now, why would Dewey want to erode the morality of our school children?

Well, thankfully, Dewey didn’t have any connections to Marxism…right?  WRONG!  Actually, Dewey was reported to have been a card-carrying member of the American Communist Party.  After visiting Lenin’s Russia, he came back convinced that Communism held the future for education and was determined to bring it here — along with some other ideas that are taught to our children and pushed in our news and entertainment media and which I could have also posted links for:

Dewey also helped to re-write an Americanized version of The Communist Manifesto based on the notion of humanism.  He even wrote of his ideas in his creed:

The teacher is engaged not simply in the training of individuals, but in the formation of the proper social life…. In this way, the teacher always is the prophet of the true God and the usherer-in of the true Kingdom of God.

Now, at first glance, those words might not appear to be all that threatening – until you understand that Dewey is talking about man as god: more specifically, the leaders of society.  Hey, that sort of takes us right back to here, doesn’t it?  Man, these progressive spider webs are everywhere, aren’t they?

OK, so our teachers are Marxists who are trying to undermine our culture so they can destroy it.  But certainly our political leaders don’t agree with any of this:

Sex Ed for Kindergarteners ‘Right Thing to Do,’ Says Obama

Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders is fired after remarks on masturbation. (Originated from Knight-Ridder Newspapers) (btw: Elders actually advocated teaching condom use and masturbation to kindergartners)

Well, at least we know we know these people don’t have connections to Marxism:

You know, on second thought, I think I’m starting to detect a bit of a trend here.  How about you?  I just wish:

  1. In the 6th grade, I recall having to take a sex-ed course. The problem was that at that time, I found it extremely funny, so I could not stop laughing and cracking jokes…….yeah, I was booted from the class….(boo-hoo!)

    Thankfully, Augger took me to the playground to play a game called “doctor” so that I could catch up on what what had been taught in my absence.
