The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America
This was rampant when we were faced with putting our 8 children through the public schools. Instead of trying to counteract all this we chose to home school, at a time when it wasn't legal to do so in Montana.
We took our children to Helena and helped get one of the best home school laws in the nation passed in the middle eighties. I just couldn't see how we could send our kids to school telling them to listen to their teachers and learn what they needed, then when they brought all this trash learning home to then tell them their teachers didn't know what they were talking about.
Instead we bought a Commodore computer and I learned how to program basic and came up with a set of disks that helped my wife to teach them. They all liked the computer idea and learned rapidly. We also used some professional tutoring along the way for special problems.
All our children are good productive members of society, and several have their own businesses, and none of them have any problem competing with the product of the public school system.
I would hate to think what might have happened had we subjected them to what this movie shows.
