I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

The Change in American Education Accelerated in Recent Decades

"You trust me with those educators?"

PUBLIC SCHOOL -- CURE FOR MENTAL ILLNESS: "The watershed moment when modern schooling swept all competition from the field was the passage of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in 1965 (ESEA)...opening the door to a full palette of 'interventions' by psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, agencies, and various specialists. All were invited to use the schoolhouse as a satellite office -- in urban ghettos, as a primary office. Now it was the law.

"Along the way to this milestone, important way stations were reached...The strand I've shown is only one of many in the tapestry. The psychological goals of this project and the quality of mind in back of them are caught fairly in the keynote address to the 1973 Childhood International Education Seminar in Boulder, CO, delivered by Harvard psychiatrist Chester M. Pierce. this quote appears to have been edited out of printed transcripts of the talk, but was reported by newspapers in actual attendance:

"'Every child in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a believe in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It's up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well--by creating the international child of the future.'"

"Smarter educators will start thinking about how to update a 19th Century product to suit 21st Century realities. Less-smart educators will hunker down and fight change tooth and nail. Who will win out in the end? Well, how many 19th Century business models do you see flourishing, here in the 21st?"


GJ - I am working on a post about public school violence. The material above is directly related to that.
