the deliberate dumbing down of America: Revised and Abridged Edition exposes how American social engineers have systematically gone about destroying the intellect of millions of American children for the purpose of leading the American people into a socialist world government controlled by behavioral and social scientists. It documents the gradual decline of our once academically successful education system into one devoted to training compliant children to be used by government and industry. The successful implementation of this fascist-socialist philosophy of education will spell the end of the American dream of individual freedom and opportunity.
This powerful book will change forever the way you look at your child's education.
