More on Education in America

Well! I have to say that I knew this would be an involved post. It hails from a commenter named Cubed. Thank you so much Cubed! You have done so much work - you're amazing. The title is a link to the site contents.

Education and Jihad, Part I is chock full of all of the things that we all know about education in America. The way it is compiled and the items that the piece highlights make it an especially horrifying read. We know education in America sucks - but did we know it sucked THIS BAD?! Read it - it'll frighten the knickers off of you. Not only does it talk about what a crap education our kids are getting, but also how badly they stand when compared internationally (yes - even the AP students..), AND a bonus on the type of students attracted to education (bottom of the barrel academically). Did you know that this problem of education in America is bad for the future of our country? Not only is it bad, but it is putting our Republic in danger. Here is a quote from Cubed's article:

"We have a significantly flawed system in this country, and it has been in operation for over 150 years--about 7-8 "reproductive generations," or about 13 "school generations." The system has been relentless in its efforts to turn out a product which is inimical to our ability to see and counter the current danger we face in the form of Islam. The "product" is citizens who are ignorant of both facts and the philosophy needed to hang the facts together in a manner that enables them to evaluate, judge, and act appropriately. This profound and important ignorance has the effect of opening the doors to the enemy and issuing an invitation to come through."

This is only the tip of the iceberg in her analysis and I will continue to post on the remainder in the coming days. In addition I am adding Cubed's site AND blog to my sidebar. I will also be adding the Pennsylvania Minutemen - who the exceedingly ignorant Philly.com journalist Gaiutra Bahadur called a 'vigilante group' today. (Where ya from, Gaiutra? Are you legally in this country?! Has your work visa expired?? Ya yo-yo.)

God Bless America - and God Save the Republic. Homeschool your children!!
