History 101: Public Schools

by:  Diane Benjamin

When a politician announces free Pre-K for all – make sure they don’t get elected.  Here’s why:

Free public schools weren’t the creation of the Founders, in fact there is nothing in the Constitution about government running schools.  Progressives brought mandatory education to pass in the early 1900’s.  In 1919 Arthur Calhoun stated “The fondest wish of Utopian writers was coming true, the child was passing from its family into the custody of community experts.”  The goal was to take the power away from parents and put it in the hands of the government.

President Woodrow Wilson’s push for compulsory education rose from his well-documented racism against immigrants.  “Our problem is not merely to help the students adjust themselves to world life . . [but] to make them as unlike their fathers as we can.”  He believed the only way to “fix” the problem of immigrants was to brainwash their children in public school.  Progressives did not intend to provide a good education, they wanted wards of the state.  The first time the Federal government provided money to States for education was under Wilson.  They haven’t stop since.  Now they use dollars to coerce states into uniformity – think Common Core.

Interestingly,  Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson both thought the Bible could not be separated from public schools.  They saw public schools as a way to indoctrinate children in religious education, thus taking away the traditional job of parents.

All this leads to the system we have today.  You can send your child to a private school or home-school, but you will still pay for public schools.  A massive industry has been created costing more than $8000 per child to educate.  If the money followed the child instead of handing money to public institutions, the quality and cost of education would improve because of competition for dollars.

Instead, we have compulsory government managed state indoctrination.  It’s easy to see why charter schools and school vouchers are a tough sell to everybody, except parents.  It’s also easy to why politicians want to provide free Pre-K.  Start indoctrinating earlier.

  1. Our educational “public” school system has been hijacked by government indoctrination through cultural communism to undermine our national sovereignty and individualism. I am 58 years old and when I was in grade school and Jr. high school the American flag was in our class rooms and we opened with the pledge of allegiance to honor God and our country. We also took the Constitution test in Jr. High and high school. We had to pass it or we could not graduate. It is obvious to see today that our school system has thrown our American Heritage under the bus for global governance. This has not been done by happenstance, but by design, as our political leaders have sold us out for global communities under the United Nations and their New World Order agenda!

    “To achieve One World Government it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, their loyalty to family traditions and national identification” — George Brock Chisholm, Director of United Nations World Health Organization in a speech given at the Conference on Education, Asilomar, California, September 11, 1954

  2. For the next election let us get signatures for anti-one world government and anti-communist referendums. Also maybe a referendum that elected officials pass a civics test. If the fuzz head can do it so can we.
