To understand the declining moral values, educational standards, and shift from a classic liberal education to the intellectual garbage we see today, we must look at the goals of progressive education as promoted by John Dewey and the continual shift from individualism to collectivism. Progressive education does not teach students to use deductive reasoning and individualism to make logical decisions. It teaches socialist concepts like moral relativism, social justice, sustainability; political/social ideas that have nothing to do with education and everything to do with societal change. Modern education is meant to reduce excellence and create good workers, not good thinkers. The ultimate goals are spreading the wealth of America to the undeveloped/developing world and reducing Americas role as leader of the free world. Dr. Pesta will explain why homeschooling is such an important bulwark to social engineering in our public schools.
