America…Parents Can’t…Part 7

Marxism and Humanism are the predominant philosophies of America’s education establishment, yet every day we send the public schools our most precious gift, our children, to be “educated.” …

America’s educational system began to decline with the introduction of socialism, given impetus by the increasing involvement of the federal government. Lenin said: “Communism is socialism in a hurry.” Socialism, therefore, is Communism by gradualism rather than by revolution. The socialist “Fabian Society,” forerunner of most socialist groups in America, had as its motto “Make Haste Slowly.” …

John Dewey, known as “the father of modern education,” was an avowed socialist and the co-author of the “Humanist Manifesto.” The U.S. House Committee on Un-American Activities discovered that he belonged to 15 Marxist front organizations. Dewey taught the professors who trained America’s teachers. Obsessed with “the group,” he said, “You can’t make socialists out of individualists. Children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society, which is coming, where everyone is interdependent.”…

NEA specialist Paul Haubner, tells us, “The schools cannot allow parents to influence the kind of values-education their children receive in school; . that is what is wrong with those who say there is a universal system of values. Our goals are incompatible with theirs. We must change their values.”

Don’t miss that–“The Schools cannot allow parents to influence the kind of values-education their children receive in school…” Let that sink in for a minute. AND, notice who said it…a “specialist” with the National Education Association. This is the kind of stuff just being swept by the typical, distracted, American parent. I’m trying to undistract.

The quote you cite is widely attributed to John Dewey, but it is a false one (“You can’t make socialists out of individualists..”. It was written by Rosalie Gordon in the McCarthy era book “What’s Happened to Our Schools” (which I believe is still available at the John Birch Society Bookstore). She wrote it as her own words smearing what she presumed to be Dewey’s beliefs. It was correctly attributed to Gordon in “None Dare Call It Treason”, but thereafter it took on a life of its own. John Dewey was a brilliant theorist, experimentalist, and a scientist whose research and interest in how students education best prepared them to cope well in “society” was often twisted by extremists to appear to be making them “socialists”.
