Utopian dictators like Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, and Mao are criminals – genocidal psychopaths who have killed more human beings in the last hundred years than any other ideologues in history. They don't limit their murder to individuals, but to entire nations.
In the United States another form of utopians, the ""progressives,"" have tried to destroy traditional America by strategically dumbing down her people. America's future is being crippled on purpose in order to fundamentally transform the nation, its values, and its system of government. Laid out a century ago by progressive luminary John Dewey, the fruits of his schemes are plain to see today. Dewey got rid of the traditional intensive phonics method of instruction and imposed a ""look-say,"" ""sight,"" or ""whole-word"" method that forces children to read English as if it were Chinese. The method is widely used in today's public schools, which is a major reason there are so many failing public schools that cannot teach children the basics. This can only be considered a blatant form of child abuse.
American author and veteran educator Samuel Blumenfeld and journalist Alex Newman have taken on the public education establishment as never before and exposed it for the de facto criminal enterprise it is.
Crimes of the Educators reveals how the architects of America's public school disaster implemented a plan to socialize the United States by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population, a mission closer to success than ever as the Obama administration works relentlessly to nationalize K-12 schooling with Common Core.
The whole-word method of teaching children to read – introduced by John Dewey and colleagues in the early twentieth century and which permeates Common Core – is a significant cause of dyslexia among students. Public education's war against religion, the ""great American math disaster,"" promotion of death education, and the government's plan to lower standards for all so ""no one is left behind"" is destroying the logic, reasoning, and overall educational prowess of America's next generation.

Journalist Henry Mencken said it best in 1924 when he wrote that the aim of public education is ""to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality.""
It is time to hold the Department of Education accountable for the crimes of the educators.

“Evolution teaches students that there is no God, no loving Creator, and that the sole purpose of living is to satisfy one’s physical and emotional needs. This secular humanist philosophy (among others), which dominates not just Woodson but all public schools, produces unhappiness, depression, and a sense that a life without transcendent purpose is not worth living.
“(Thousands) of students have committed suicide all across America, and no one in Washington has even bothered to hold a hearing on the subject. It is now assumed that teenage suicide is as natural as burgers and fries. It’s just one of those things that teenagers now do in America” (162, 164). (emphasis mine)
“All children, except the very seriously impaired, develop their innate language faculty very rapidly from ages two to six. In fact, by the time they are six, they have developed vocabularies in the thousands of words, and can speak with clarity and grammatical correctness without having had a single day of formal education.
“In other words, children are dynamos of language learning and can easily be taught to read between ages four and seven, provided they are taught in the proper phonetic way. Also, Dewey’s notion that the primary function of language is social communication is patently false. If we accept the Bible as our source of information, it becomes obvious that the primary function of language—which was God’s gift to Adam—was to permit Adam to converse with God and know his Creator” (7)
