Socialist Indoctrination In Our Public Schools

About 90% of American children and young adults attend public elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities.   Public Education used be the means of creating the Melting Pot that made America both great and different than other countries as people from all over the world came to the United States to become Americans.   When Public Education was conceived, there was never a question that all would be taught English, as our national language and further be immersed in our national values of liberty, free market capitalism, faith, family and country.   In the last 100 years of Socialist Creep and particularly since the advent of teacher unions in the last 40 years, that has all changed. 

When this Blogger attended a public university in California from 1967 - 1978, about half of my professors were politically right of center and the rest were moderates; not left wing zealots.   Before that, while in elementary and secondary schools in California, I have no idea as to the political inclinations of my teachers because they taught me various subjects without political commentary.   And further, when I graduated from Cal State with degrees in both History and Political Science and a Standard Secondary Teaching Credential,  we were taught in our Education classes that the role of the teacher was always to present both sides of any issue to motivate critical thinking.  To do that, the teacher was not supposed to express a political opinion.  For years, that was considered good teaching.  

By the time I left the classroom in 1979 and for all the years since then,  good teaching and good education has been transformed into indoctrination.   I saw this during the six years I spent teaching in inner city public schools in Los Angeles as the teacher unions, run by left wing Socialists, took over the public schools.  The same thing happened in our colleges and universities.  So for the past 40 years, American kids and young adults have been fed politically correct, radical left wing ideology as truth.   Kids have been taught that big Socialist government is good.  Business and free market capitalism are bad.  The poor are poor because the rich are rich. 

Radical environmentalism is good even if it destroys jobs and communities.  Unlimited access to abortion on demand, including partial birth abortion, even for minors without parental consent is a woman, or young girl's right to choose because life does not begin at conception.   Race, gender and sexual orientation discrimination is rampant and the reason bad things happen to good people.  Naturally, the unions have taught kids that teacher unions are critical to their education, which is the reason we often see kids protesting in the streets when teachers go on strike.   Of course, this is all a bunch of left wing baloney.  It is nothing less than brain washing. 

No matter what you may hear from Socialists and teacher unions feeding at the trough, the United States spends more on public education than any other nation in the world; yet we produce poor results.   30% of Americans kids never graduate from high school.  That percentage is even higher in the inner cities.  A very high percentage of American kids cannot read at grade level.   Most high school and university students that do graduate leave school without a marketable job skill.  This may be the reason that 50% of university graduates today can't find a job.  They don't know how to do anything valuable.  And, since these kids have spent years being indoctrinated, rather than educated, they are not particularly well educated either.  

This all has to change.   We have got to get back to educating our young people.  Parents need to become more active in our public schools so that when we see indoctrination, we demand that it stop.  No teacher, whether left wing, or right wing has a right to present their ideology as truth.   We do need to teach English in our schools as our national language as a unifying force.  We do need to teach right from wrong, rather than situational ethics.  Finally, the values represented in the 10 Commandments are universal truths that should be the foundation of good teaching and education without reference to any particular religion.   Thou shalt not lie, cheat, steal or murder are pretty basic ideas. Honor thy father and thy mother is also pretty basic.  

Young people, educated in public institutions, tend to vote for Socialists because of the constant Anti American indoctrination they receive on a daily basis.   Sadly, this indoctrination is happening at the expense of their education.   People with money, or willing to make sacrifices, can put their kids in private schools to avoid this indoctrination.   Poor families have no such choice, which is the reason we must support School Vouchers and choice so that poor families can get their kids out of failing public schools, staffed by indoctrinators, rather than good teachers.   Socialists, including President Obama and his pals in Congress, oppose School Choice and Vouchers because they want more dues paying union teachers to contribute to Socialist campaigns and because they want to continue this left wing indoctrination.   All of this is down right criminal and will not change as long as Socialists remain in office.  

We have to take back our country in 2012 and 2014 and that includes taking back our public schools that are such a mess.   Our nation cannot be competitive as long as our teachers seek to indoctrinate, rather than educate.   Socialists are free to believe whatever they want.  They are not free to spew their ideology in our public schools as though what they believe is truth.   Remember, Socialists will lie, cheat or steal to remain in office feeding at the trough.   Teacher unions are feeding at the trough like no other group in our society.   As such, they continue to indoctrinate our children so that they will vote for Socialist candidates that support teacher unions and other left wing causes.  It has to stop.
