Good article by Malkin. The American public school system has actually been a fabulous success. It has achieved exactly what it was designed to achieve. The early progressives, including Woodrow Wilson, wanted an educational system that would create legions of obedient factory workers and soldiers. To accomplish this, schooling had to carefully LIMIT learning. After all, an intelligent citizenry is anathema to the ruling elite. The results have been stunningly successful.

And, most astounding of all, millions who support the educational system that stunted their abilities.

But this is fiddlesticks compared to what the federal government is doing to eliminate American children's core knowledge base in English, language arts and history.

Thanks to the "Common Core" regime, funded with President Obama's stimulus dollars and bolstered by duped Republican governors and business groups, deconstructionism...
