Book Review: ‘Crimes of the Educators’

See the source image

Chalcedon has published my review of Crimes of the Educators, by Samuel Blumenfeld and Alex Newman.

Sam Blumenfeld was one of the pioneers of homeschooling in America, and he worked his heart out teaching phonics and trying to undo the havoc wrought on young minds by the faddish “whole language” method, which left so many of its victims illiterate. But that–which some of the education theorists who pushed it now admit has been a “disaster”–is only one of public education’s multitude of crimes.

It would be hard to name another institution which has done more harm to our country than public education–although our nooze media are doing their utmost to catch up.

Anyhow, it’s all in the book review. Happy landings.
