The Amazing Crimes of Today's Educators

Do you realize the insanity that is being taught kids in school these days? Do you know the socialist behind what students are "learning" in schools these days? It will amaze you.

This week on The Robert Wenzel Show, I talk Alex Newman, co-author of Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians Are Using Government Schools to Destroy America's Children, and he has all the horror stories..

After recording it, executive producer Chris Rossini called it the most important interview I have done. You can listen to it here.



  1. A great interview. Thanks!

    My oldest of three children is graduating high school this year. He has been taught at home his entire life. All three were taught to read using phonics and, once able to read, they never stopped. We require them to read two hours a day. They also do 2 hours of auto-didactic math a day. All other subjects are subordinate to those two.

    Four aspects of home schooling are very beneficial in my mind. 1.) They arise later in the morning, refreshed and ready. 2.) They move around all day instead of sitting at those awful desks for 45 minutes at a time. 3.) Since their schoolwork is done by mid afternoon, they have so much more daily time to pursue other areas of life to which they feel most drawn: music, art, etc. It takes about 10,000 hours to become an expert at something. My kids are well on their way. 4.) Rather than forced compliance by teacher and group, our kids are naturally inquisitive. They do not hesitate to ask all sorts of questions about all subjects, with the understanding that we parents can be wrong too.

    They have to take those silly standardized tests each year and they always do fine; always well into the highest quintile - except for social studies because we don't make them memorize by rote, preferring to put such info into stories with context.

    Also, I am happy to report that they have never said the pledge of allegiance. If someday they decide to give their allegiance to a country, it will be with the full faculties of adult understanding that they do so. We studied some other words instead:

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

    My wife and I are grateful to all those who came before us and fought for this right to teach our lids at home and, thanks to their growing numbers, homeschooled kids aren't stigmatized as much as they used to be.
