How to Take Back the Public Schools

Children deserve to be saved from our nihilist public schools by conservatives who know how these children are being cynically used to keep the Left in power. And of course we know that we cannot take back the schools from the top. The radical left owns the schools lock, stock, and barrel. So we must start at the bottom, by encouraging young conservatives to run for school boards as a start of their political careers.

As we all know, the public schools are controlled by people on the radical left. How far left are they? The Association of Teacher Educators has invited unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers to be a keynote speaker at their annual meeting this February. These are the people who educate our teachers! If we conservatives want to take back the schools, we must finally decide that enough is enough and begin planning a serious strategy for victory.

But you might ask: Why should conservatives want to take control of the government schools? Shouldn’t we want to get the government out of the education business? Yes, of course. But let’s be realistic. Parents have the freedom to homeschool their own children, but 85 to 90 percent of American children are still in the government schools, where they are being dumbed down and abused by the radical Left who wants to turn them into liberal Democrats.

My contention is that these children deserve to be saved from our nihilist schools by conservatives who know how these children are being cynically used to keep the Left in power in perpetuity. And of course we know that we cannot take back the schools from the top. The radical left owns the schools lock, stock, and barrel, and no conservative is allowed any power to change anything the Left doesn’t want in the education establishment. So we must start at the bottom, and this can be done by encouraging young conservatives to run for school boards as a start of their political careers. Then we must create an Association of Conservative School Board Members.

The left took control of our schools because they were organized and had a well-thought-out plan implemented by John Dewey and his progressive associates. Dewey concocted his plan in 1898 and said that it had to be implemented gradually or else parents would rise up against it. We must do the same. But we need not do it gradually, for what we advocate is exactly what most parents want.
