‘We should view it as an act of war’
Educators are committing an “act of war” against America’s school children and intentionally dumbing down the nation, charges international journalist and educator Alex Newman.
Education bureaucrats – not ordinary teachers – are the criminals guilty of “treason,” he says.
“I hope this isn’t taken as an attack on teachers,” Newman said during a May 9 appearance on the radio program, “A Call to Rights.” “The teachers are just as much victims as the students here.”
Newman has co-authored a new book with Samuel Blumenfeld that’s taking Amazon by storm, “Crimes of the Educators,” which has surged to No. 379 on Amazon’s list of bestselling books overall.
In 1983, President Ronald Reagan created the National Commission on Excellence in Education to investigate poor educational outcomes in America. The commission proclaimed in its report, “If an unfriendly foreign power had attempted to impose on America the mediocre educational performance that exists today, we might well have viewed it as an act of war.”
