Deliberate Dumbing Down of America (and Latin America too): "Another Brick in the Wall"

Now is available for free an important book that reveals how schools are becoming a plant for creating morons. Not only in US but in Latin America too.
It reminds me that old Pink Floyd song and movie called "Another Brick in the Wall" where schools are shown as meat-pastry producers.

Here´s the introdcution:

Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, former Senior Policy Advisor in the U.S. Department of Education, blew the whistle in the `80s on government activities withheld from the public. Her inside knowledge will help you protect your children from controversial methods and programs. In this book you will discover:

  • how good teachers across America have been forced to use controversial, non-academic
  • how "school choice" is being used to further dangerous reform goals, and how home schooling and private education are especially vulnerable.

  • how workforce training (school-to-work) is an essential part of an overall plan for a global economy, and how this plan will shortcircuit your child's future career plans and opportunities.
  • how the international, national, regional, state and local agendas for education reform are all interconnected and have been for decades.


Here´s the link for the full text.
