This book gives us insight into what is wrong with our public school system and why as Christians we shouldn't be sending our children there. This give true blue statistics on the drugging and the over diagnosing of our children. Trust me I have been there I am just glad that my eyes are open to it all now. I just wish I was never sucked into the lie. Most parents trust the school system or just don't realize they have another choice and that they too can homeschool those precious children. This book broke my heart when I read how many children are put on drugs that the don't need. ADD and ADHD are relatively new diagnoses these didn't exist in our grandparents days.
I can say that I agree with the Dumbing Down part of this book cause I feel I was short changed in school. My husband and I are 13 yrs apart, as I was going into school he was graduating high school. I feel that I missed a lot of schooling I should have gotten but no it didn't happen. Growing up there where a few years that I had the same books in different schools. We weren't taught anything other then how to take a standardized test and pass so we didn't make the school district look bad.
This book shows that children are important and so is the information we put in their heads. I want my children to enjoy learning and to pass that on to my grandchildren. I want them to learn all the time and not have to worry about a test that doesn't prove anything.
I am sure my review and my opinion will offend friends and family who work in the public school system and that is not my intention.
