"Weakening American K-12 education, while forcing a one-world system on everyone, is the ultimate goal."

Educator and author Brooks presents a convincing picture of the way that American schools have been gradually infiltrated by the tenets of Marxism and communism. Many communist proponents over the past century predicted that this subversion would happen but so subtly that most Americans would not realize it. Two wealthy families, the Carnegies and Rockefellers, funded many American universities and organizations, both influenced by philosopher John Dewey, a humanist Marxist. Public school hierarchy includes a national teachers’ union that extracts dues while offering few benefits. Burdened by trends such as anti-religion, anti-masculinity, soft computer skills, and emphasis on fiction reading, many teachers feel ineffective, leaving the profession at the rate of about 15% a year. Schools are riddled with hidden, unreported crime such as bullying, sexual harassment, and violence, while parents and students are placated by deceptive “bread and circus” activities like sports and entertainment.

Brooks, a former public school teacher, has authored several books about violence in schools. He has composed this discourse with a stern focus on what he considers to be extremely worrying trends in American education. Emphasizing the positives that can be achieved, he commends teachers who stay in their classrooms rather than marching for spurious causes and students who have a basic understanding that, in a situation of violence, for example, they will have to rely on their own strength and resolve. He often quotes from such anti-communism notables as George Orwell and Thomas Sowell. He recommends students read more nonfiction, offers YouTube and other Internet references in support of his thesis, and has created an informative flow chart of school power structure; money sources are at the top, and teachers are at the bottom. His book can provide motivational material for parents and communities seeking greater influence and autonomy in the education of future generations.
