The Real Root of School Violence

In the brave new world of the very near future, children will enter their public schools passing police checkpoints, surveillance cameras, metal detectors, X-ray scanners and warrantless physical searches. Parents will relax, knowing their child is now “SAFE.” No violent evil doers will be able to get past that wall of security.

But what none of the checkpoints, scanners and cameras will detect is the child who walks right past, armed to the teeth with a hidden weapon actually enforced on him by the school itself. …

American Education Fails Because It Isn’t Education

The debate over public education grows more heated. Regularly, reports are released showing that the academic abilities of American students continue to fall when compared to those in other countries.

Twenty years ago the U.S. ranked first in the world in the number of young adults who had high school diplomas and college degrees. Today we rank ninth and seventh, respectively, among industrialized nations. Compared to Europe and Asia, 15-year-olds in the United States are below average in applying math skills to real-life tasks. The United …

Destroying America from Inside the Classroom

February 22, 2010

By Tom DeWeese

I have reported many times in the pages of the DeWeese Report about how public school classrooms are being used, not for the teaching of academic knowledge, but for behavior modification to change the student’s attitudes, values and beliefs. Barack Obama is now driving to control classroom curriculum based on United Nation’s Globalism. Many parents want to deny this is happening. “Not in my child’s school,” they tell me. If you still don’t believe it’s happening in EVERY school that takes …

Why is Public Education Failing?

December 17, 2007

By Tom DeWeese

It’s a fact. Most of today’s school children can barely read or write. They can’t perform math problems without a calculator. They barely know who the Founding Fathers were and know even less of their achievements. Most can’t tell you the name of the President of the United States. It’s pure and simple; today’s children aren’t coming out of school with an academics education.

Colleges know it. They have to set up remedial courses for incoming freshmen just to …

Critical Thinking: or Making Me the Straw Man

May 10, 2006

By Tom DeWeese

They are one of the biggest publishers of textbooks in the world, and they wanted to use some of my writings in one of their products. My first thought was, “Gee, I’m coming up in the world.” The second was, “How do they intend to use it?” So I asked for a sample. A good thing I did.

The textbook will be entitled “Invitation to Critical Thinking,” and apparently will be distributed to children’s classrooms in Canada. It will cost the …

Why We Need “The Freedom In Education Act”

December 12, 2005

By Tom DeWeese

Your elected representatives in Congress deny that this nation has a mandatory federal education curriculum. Congress hides the fact behind the historic arrangement of state and local control of schools. The federal government denies that there is a federal curriculum that teaches world government over national sovereignty. Your Representatives in Congress are in the dark and the federal government is lying.

The fact is, the building blocks of world government are being taught in a number of ways. There are …

It Takes a Village to Destroy a Child

November 8, 2005

By Tom DeWeese

In the old days, children were warned not to smoke because it would stunt their growth. Apparently the same warning can now be issued on Ritalin. Researchers at the University of Sydney have analyzed 29 separate studies on the subject and have concluded that there is indication that some Ritalin users may experience slow or even stunted growth.

“Parents should expect their children to lose some weight and grow more slowly for a time after starting on stimulant medication, and …

Is Your Church Teaching Pagan Earth Worship In Sunday School?

January 17, 2005

By Tom DeWeese

Many parents have sought to protect their children from the behavior-modification programs that have taken the place of academic education in public schools. To escape the assault of Outcome-Based Education (OBE), multi-culturalism, and workforce training programs, parents in ever-increasing numbers are placing their children in private schools or are home-schooling.

Public schools, and even some private schools, spend valuable classroom time engaged in “cooperative” learning (group learning) encounter sessions and discussion groups that employ pop psychology that teachers are simply not …
