It begins in our universities where the teachers of tomorrow are tragically, deliberately mis-educated in our Education Departments. They are not taught how to teach (I am rather dubious that that can indeed be taught in the first place, but a single course in teaching methods would certainly suffice), instead they are taught what to think. They are not taught that they are the front line in the defense of civilization, but rather that their first responsibility is to be "agents of social change". As a result we have entire classes of new teachers whose philosophy of education is diametrically opposed to the intended purpose of education.
