    I read or started to read the Deliberate Dumbing Down of America by Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt because a homeschooling association emailed me the free pdf which is available on the interwebs I gotta stop reading these books that homeschoolers love It’s like they are trying to talk me out of homeschoolingI decided to read this one only because I thought she couldn’t really mean that the decline of America’s education system was deliberate That would be crazy right? Well it is crazy It is chalk full of crazyMy first clue that I probably wasn’t going to finish this book was in the foreward “American social engineers have systematically gone about destroying the intellect of millions of American children for the purpose of leading the American people into a socialist world government controlled by behavioral and social scientist” Really? If only this could be satirical that sentence would be okay But since it was intentional it is just sadAnd then in her preface the author goes on and on about the socialistfascist agenda and their intentions to create a global workforce blah blah blah It is basically comes off as the ramblings of an incredibly paranoid person I’m not saying that Iserbyt is that person just that it this book doesn’t rule that outThe worst part about this book and the reason that I didn’t finish is that it actually contains fiction than it does fact Each chapter takes on a decade of “history” where she lists her evidence It is almost completely uncited there is a whole lot of “this person said blah blah blah” without any proof that anyone said anything like it and what is cited is often clearly taken out of context This kind of “source material” just makes me angry I won’t go so far as to say its all a bunch of lies because I think she believes the case she is making But there is no proof any of it is trueLook I think there is plenty wrong with the public school system in America That is the reason I’m considering homeschooling my children But this? This conspiracy business just makes homeschoolers look like a bunch of wackadoodles Other people have said this was a terrifying read because of what it revealed The only scary thing about this book to me is that there are people who believe itReading With My Eyes Shut

    This book can be summarized well with a loose uote from the preface If a child can read write and compute at a reasonably proficient level he will be able to do just about anything he wishes with his life able to control his destiny Because providing such basic proficiencies is not and should not be an expensive or complicated proposition it becomes obvious that it is only a radical social agenda to brainwash our children that is the costly proposition and complicated to hide what's really going onI couldn't put this book down But I don't think it is for everyone It's extremely important and wow what an immense amount of work and knowledge the author provides But it's not easy reading It's a paper trail of extremely annoying political writing and over complicated attempts by person after person to first appeal to someone's emotional rather than rational brain and then slip in some tricky language so that everyone agrees with whatever he says So totally obnoxious annoying shit But sometimes fun if you enjoy the puzzle And just mostly horrifying I have never wanted to leave this country Crazy how the government documents would have me convinced for fifty pages that the idea came from a good place and would do some good for the kiddies like getting rid of grades and apprenticeships but then how it turns out to be totally evilWhen the government pushes for no grades what they are really pushing for is a different kid of grade grading on things the government values So instead of grades that measure work the grade free report cards are all about a student's timeliness attitude effort cooperation responsiveness to authority etc This is NOT what I think of when I think of no grades So here are the characteristics that a totalitarian government wants in its citizens These are the traits that will get you ahead get you into the good schools the good jobs not brain power but obedience The obedient will be rewarded with jobs that give them power It's brilliant And totally Hiter esueIn the 90's teachers were reuired in almost all public schools to make behavior part of the kids grade whether the teacher wanted to or not It's all about baby stepsWhen government pushes for apprenticeships it sounds so good I totally support apprenticeships That's what I want for my son But reeeeally when you make apprenticeships part of the school program you put the government in control of jobs Kids and parents aren't out there looking for an apprenticeship that their child wants the government decides what the kid gets based on his grades in school and remember his most important grade is obedience A few baby steps and now you can only get a license to work as a baker if you have done an apprenticeship and you can't get an apprenticeship without the government the government controls the jobs and we are a communist countryI used to think that the schools had been taken over by the Democrats and that's why most people couldn't graduate from college without becoming a liberal now I know that I was really onto something The schools were taken over by behaviorists on the payroll of Carnegie Ford and Rockefeller with a brainwashing agenda to make the US fascistsocialist a long long time agoThe fact that it took so long shows the weaknesses of behaviorism and the strength of our old values But baby steps money patience research and 100 years and our country is pretty much socialist but we call it freedom here Politics will follow ideology Don't worry about today's men Just take over the schools brainwash the kids and everything will fall into placeI am super curious about brainwashing now Fascinating that what is taught does not matter as much as how it is taught It is the methods that make people automatons who cannot think for themselves not the subject matter The method IS the messageThat's the problem with brainwashing and socialism and government as long as you agree with what they are doing to everyone else it's great Make them dumb religious folk turn to science This country would be a much better place if we all supported abortion gay marriage and evolution I can just hear people I know cheering But then when those in power decide to Make them horrible rebels send their kids to public brainwash school make them horrible hippies vaccinate their babies make them dissenters take mood altering drugs make people eat what we tell them to eat WHY DON'T PEOPLE SEE THIS? It's all the same It doesn't matter what you are MAKING people do it doesn't matter how good you think it will be for them or the world the problem IS the MAKINGDear Would Be Socialist Dictators please read Non Violent Communication and Choice Theory And John Locke There IS another way We don't actually all have to agree on ANYTHING except to respect each otherMy biggest complaint about this book is that I wish Charlotte wrote I want to know of her thoughts about education and solutions And I don't need such a long paper trails One or two documents per category would have been fine And I gotta say I wouldn't have minded if she held my hand a little This book is like Iserbyt got out her file of evidence and published it I would like her to write a new book with short chapters based around each regulation or educational platform rather than chronology It could accompany this book so that when she refers to Project INSTRUCT I can flip open this book and read a one page summary about project Instruct who started it who is pushing for it what its real agenda is etc Dear Charlotte I appreciate your work here so much Would love to take you to lunchAnd for parents like me who want to know what I concluded from this book without having to read it Absolutely no public school for your kids If you want to do private school make sure the teachers are experts in their fields and do NOT have teaching credentials and try an alternative style Montessori or Acton If you chose to homeschool do not do it through the public system and be very careful about whatever system you choose Probably best for you to be the teacher Remember the uote at the top With basic math reading and writing skills your child will be able to do almost anything he wishes with his life This is not a costly or complicated thing to teach your child Flee flee the country And vote for freedom in every area about everything at all time Vote to take power away from the government

    I basically admire the thesis and intent of this book But I fault it for its format and execution This book is one long last paragraph after paragraph of uotations from sources which together allegedly show a deliberate dumbing down Moe interpretation needed

    I've not readstudied this book yet though I've listened to many hours of her lectures on various related subjects If anyone is interested she IS a compelling speaker if you can get through her introduction Just enter Iserbyt in the search box on YouTube and lots of videos will pop up While I haven't read the book cover to cover this is of a reference book I have read enough of it to get the idea It is well written and very very informative This is an excellent companion to John Taylor Gatto's An Underground History of American Education
