Our educational establishment - a vast tax-supported empire existing quasi-independently within American society - is morally and intellectually bankrupt, charges distinguished economist and social critic Thomas Sowell. And in this top-to-bottom tour of the mismanaged institutions, cynical leadership, and tendentious programs of American education, Sowell exposes the numerous "deceptions and dogmas" that have concealed or sought to justify the steep and very dangerous decline in our educational standards and practices across the board. Among the more serious ills of American education are the technically sophisticated brainwashing techniques now being applied to children and teenagers in so-called "affective education" programs; the special "peace" and "nuclear" education programs that actively promote "politically correct" attitudes; the "values clarification" and sex education curricula that portray parental and religious authority figures as agents of a repressive and unjust social and political orthodoxy; and the racial "mini-establishments" created on college campuses by minority demagogues and complaisant administrators that enshrine a self-serving ideological double standard, thus betraying the real interests of minority students. Sowell's exhaustively researched investigation draws particular attention to the wide array of textbooks and other instructional materials, promoted with astonishing success by a multi-million dollar industry styling itself a "secular humanist" movement, which fosters these ideas - ideas that are not just anti-American, Sowell maintains, but essentially totalitarian in character. These sinister curricular developments, combined with often cowardly and irresponsible management more concerned about institutional image and ranking than with fiscal integrity or a commitment to educate our youth, will breed disaster unless immediate steps are taken to reform the entire educational system.… (mere)

Read it!!!
All ages, it's never too early, but if we wait it could be too late! ( )

Although I don't remember specifics about this book, I do remember it being a fascinating breakdown on what has gone wrong with our education system. It's broken down into 3 parts. The first part (elementary schools) discusses the brainwashing of children and the promoting of the education system's ideologies at the expense of parental ideologies. The second part (colleges and universities) deals with admissions criteria, "preachy" professors, double standards, and athletics. The third section is an assessment of where we are heading and what we can do about it.

My only criticism (of myself rather than the author) is that Sowell writes over my head. I have three of his other books (The Vision of the Anointed, The Quest For Cosmic Justice) that I couldn't finish because they were too difficult to understand. I find myself reading sentences and paragraphs several times because I hadn't the faintest idea what he was talking about. What can I say, I like conversational writing as opposed to a master's thesis. ( )

For the first time in the history of our country, the educational skills of one generation will not surpass, will not equal, will not even approach, those of their parents.

(Preface): Like many other people, I have long been appalled by the low quality and continuing deterioration of American education.
Virtually everyone has heard how poorly American students perform, whether compared to foreign students or to American students of a generation ago.
