Change in schools.

Once upon a time, American parents taught their young children according to instruction in the Holy Bible. Proverbs 22:6 says, 'Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Sadly many believers began to neglect this.

Over time unbelievers came along and deceitfully took control of education from parents. Result: What was once a land of freedom and liberty gradually has become a nation largely controlled by big government.

To accomplish the transformation from a constitutional republic of "We the people" to a government-controlled nation (socialism) required our education officials to "drink the Kool-Aid," so to speak.

Columbia University, under humanist/ socialist John Dewey, educated and trained scores of these "change agents" and turned them loose on our students to construct a "Godless Utopia."

We now have a government-controlled public-school monopoly that teaches a humanistic curriculum, leaving God out of the formula entirely. This was accomplished by teaching revised history, evolution, multiculturalism, diversity, tolerance, Keynesian economics, and total reliance on government to meet every need, while the teaching of true academics has been moved to the back of the bus.

Any guess as to the long-term costs to students, parents, taxpayers, and society of these new "can't-fail" programs?
