Admittedly, for many parents, all they can do now is fight to get their children back into school, where they belong—bad as those schools are—after the children have been so damaged by being locked out for months. But we have to face the uncomfortable reality that our schools have been failing our children for years.
The schools, public and private, are committing a form of menticide on America’s children, whether it be through Critical Race Theory or a curriculum so dumbed down and based on drill-and-grill that all human creative potential is extinguished. There is a great hue and cry about public versus private, but no one is focused on what must be taught to fulfil our human nature as creative human beings participating in divine creation.

March 20, 2021—Class #1: Rescuing American Education: The History Curriculum and the New Teaching Method
Of course we have to trash the race- and sex indoctrination sessions. Of course students must once more learn to write and calculate. But the needs of today's students go far beyond this. Rather than submitting youth to mere babysitting under the label of "liberal arts," from public school through four years of college, as we do today, we can and must prepare them for the intellectual rigors of citizenship, and simultaneously for the challenges of employment in the new technologies implied by President Trump's Artemis Mission to the Moon and Mars. This class, the first of three, featured in-depth discussion of the new, proposed Socratic teaching methods, and a History curriculum superior to any used in the past in the United States or elsewhere.
