The Problems with the Current California Education System and How to Solve Them
By C. Lee Sandvick
Whether you know it or not – we are in a war over our education system! The progressive globalists own our education system and they are winning! Our students have been indoctrinated in this globalist agenda for 60+ years, slowly at first, then faster and faster when the globalists encountered no real resistance.
Charlotte Iserbyt exposed this plot in her book – “The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America” after discovering their globalist agenda while working at the Dept of Education for President Reagan. This globalist agenda accelerated under the Common Core curriculum.
In 1984, Muslim companies started buying out school book manufacturers so now 80% are under their control and they have an agenda. CAIR is writing the curriculum for our students! Omar M. Ahmad, the Co-founder of the Council on American- Islamic Relations (CAIR) made this statement.” Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest Authority in America, and Islam the only accepted Religion on Earth….” This is their goal for America.
The end result is we have millions of high school students, college students and graduates who have learned to blame America for a lot with most jumping on the Democrat-Socialist-Communist-Globalist bandwagon. It is not their fault they are not proud to be Americans because they know little about our nation. It is our fault. We are responsible for their education.
For our republic to survive, our populace must be well-informed, educated and engaged. Our Founding Fathers stressed we have a sacred duty and a responsibility to ensure that our youth (and our immigrants, as well) know the real meaning behind our founding documents along with its required civic participation. We have shirked our duty thus far and thru our apathetic silence allowed the progressive globalists to create the curriculum. This has got to stop now.
Before we can begin, we must first know our history, recognize our shortcomings and acknowledge the solution. Several years ago, the president of one of China‟s largest companies was quoted saying . ”America had 5 elements going for it to become the most prosperous nation on earth. But it lost 3 of those –utilization of capital, labor, resources. The two elements America still had but rapidly losing thru its education system are Creativity & our Entrepreneur Spirit…”
President Trump may be able to restore the first 3 elements. But the solution to the last two is obvious! To re-awaken that American creative entrepreneur spirit in our students! I believe my 3 part solution is the best idea for our country at this time in our history.
The 3 Part Solution:
- Replace our current globalist curriculum with a common sense one. Remove Common Core, Islamic teachings, globalist agenda and the horrific sex education that parents are unable to stop. States must take over control of education from the Federal Government as this word does not appear anywhere in the constitution.
- Restore the moral compass in our youth. The 10 commandments (Thou Shalt Not Kill, Steal, Covet, etc.) were taken out of schools and we were all told to ignore them. If these 10 laws are converted and revised into today‟s language entitled “10 Common Sense Rules of Living‟ they could now be discussed in classrooms. I believe that by doing this, our students will regain a moral compass.
- Mandate one class period daily (levels 1-12) to be split between these 2 subjects.
- 1st class: “Creativity 101: – (2 days a week). To encourage students to start thinking outside the box, they are free to: Dream, Draw, Design, Build, Paint, Sculpt, Write, Imagine.
- 2nd class: “America 101” (the other 3 days). The curriculum MUST include these requirements in teaching Civics:
“To teach our kids how to run our country, before they are called upon to run our country…if we don’t, someone else will run our country” – Richard Dreyfuss
He founded The Dreyfuss Initiative to restore Civics into every school curriculum in the nation. Show documentaries about America like, “Monumental‟ by Kirk Cameron. It is a riveting story about our nation”s founding not taught in schools. This film makes one proud to be an American. Have Interactive Study through books, articles, plays, etc. such as “5000 Year Leap” by W. Cleon Skousen. Students would learn the thought process that went into creating our founding documents.
From Glenn Beck:
“Once students are aware how precious America is, they will appreciate it more. It’s one of the most important books on restoring America to its original principles….The nation America’s founders built is now in the throes of a political, economic, social and spiritual crisis that has driven many to an almost frantic search for modern solutions. The truth is that the solutions have been available for a long time – in the writings of this nation’s Founding Fathers – and carefully set forth in this incredible book…It’s the book Ronald Reagan wanted taught in high schools, and Ted Kennedy stopped it from happening.”
That should tell you all you need to know. … When you read these principles, your mouth will fall open. … The scales will fall off your eyes on who we are.…It will help you understand American free enterprise. You’ll be able to defend it. You’ll be able to know what makes it possible for 6 percent of humanity living under our free economy to produce one-half of the Earth’s developed wealth every single year.”
As President Trump said in his address to Congress last year, we must pass on the torch of freedom to the next generation. But that absolutely will not happen under our current curriculum. We need some brave Americans to step up to start the implementation process this school year; President Trump, a Governor; a Republican candidate, a school district. Once that happens, national media attention will shine a light on it to insure that millions of parents become aware of it and be empowered to demand this same solution in their local school district. It can start right here in California.
“United” and “We the People‟ are unstoppable. Divided, we can’t do a thing.
Heed the words of President Ronald Reagan:
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not carried on through the bloodstream. It must be fought for and protected and handed down to our children, for them to do the same or in our sunset years, we WILL be telling our children and our children’s children what life was once like when men were free.”
