The Deliberate Dumbing Down in Education

“The purpose of education is to change the thoughts, actions, and feelings of students.  Good teaching is challenging the students fixed beliefs.”   Bloom’s Taxonomy further states that he can take a believer in God and turn him to an atheist in one hour.

Aldous Huxley in his 1946 forward to Brave New World originally published in 1931 says this about school teachers: “Government by clubs and firing squads, by artificial famine, mass imprisonment and mass deportation…is demonstrably inefficient…in an age of advanced technology… A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.  To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministers of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachersBut their methods are still crude and unscientific.
