The author states that there was no Dept. of Education until LBJ. Actually it was then HEW -- Health, Education, and Welfare. It was not the Dept. of Ed until Carter.

The problem with the article is not the thrust and direction but with the poor writing. It needs longer direct quotes from Dewey and less jumping through the decades.

John Taylor Gatto - "The Underground History of American Education"

Charlotte Iserbyt - "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America"

Beverly Eakman - "The Cloning of the American Mind"

If people would read all these books, you'd have your kids out of school tomorrow.

Everybody should read Dewey's actual writings. He was an oddity--an American philosopher.

The idea of Humanism replacing Godism can be seen in the garden of Eden

It's amazing what you can find in this very forum.
