~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
The site listed below shows what Dennis Prager has listed as Things this years high school graduated will be taught in college. This "College Education" is another reason America is in such bad shape.
Prager closes the list 2 quotes from:
Woodrow Wilson, progressive president of Princeton University in 1914, "I have often said that the use of a university is to make young gentlemen as unlike their fathers as possible."
James O. Freedman, of Dartmouth College, cited the Wilson quote favorably. And in 2002, in another commencement address, Freedman said that "the purpose of a college education is to question your father's values."
Silly me. All this time I was under the impression that the purpose of any publicly funded education and most privately funded education was to teach the mind how to think.
It turns out that the purpose of higher education is to teach technical and social skills so the graduate can become a productive cog in the economy.
Good Post Ruth!
Jimmy Carter started the Department of Education as a payback to the Unions! This was signed into law by Carter on October 17, 1979, it began operating on May 16, 1980. The Progressives knew that they needed to get the minds of the children at an early age! They have taken over the education system and our children have been brainwashed ever since! The result of this is what we are witnessing today with the Occupy Crowd and the generation of young people wanting everything for free!
Myself and my 2 sisters were raised in a Conservative household and politically active family! I have seen first hand what the Progressive education system can do to a mind! After my oldest sisters years in college and then going on to get her Masters Degree, I find it sometimes hard to have a conversation with her about what is going on in our country! She became the very thing that I am fighting against! A Progressive! When our conversations turn to Politics, it can become heated at times! I then have to remind her of where she came from and how outrageous her argument really is! Need less to say, when I am done speaking she does end up laughing at herself! I have made headway with my sister, and for that I am thankful! Changing one mind at a time!
