Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, former Senior Policy Adviser in the U.S. Department of Education, blew the whistle in the `80s on government activities withheld from the public. Her inside knowledge will help you protect your children from controversial methods and programs. In this book you will discover:
-how good teachers across America have been forced to use controversial, non-academic me
-how "school choice" is being used to further dangerous reform goals, and how home schooling and private education are especially vulnerable.
-how workforce training (school-to-work) is an essential part of an overall plan for a global economy, and how this plan will short-circuit your child's future career plans and opportunities.
-how the international, national, regional, state and local agendas for education reform are all interconnected and have been for decades.
As a student myself I can give you first hand experience, I can't count how many times a "teacher" has said "You don't have any rights here."
As far as school choice I am all for that. When it comes to personal choices such as what I can wear I am not for that. Kids expressing their artistic abilities outside of art class does damage to kids academic abilities as kids become more worried about social matters than understanding chemical reactions in their chemistry class or a mathematic equations which are essential in today's day and age.
