The Leftist Education Complex Is Failing Children

Earlier this month, the 2017 National Assessment of Educational Progress was released. It's not a pretty story.

“It should be your care, therefore, and mine, to elevate the minds of our children and exalt their courage; to accelerate and animate their industry and activity; to excite in them an habitual contempt of meanness, abhorrence of injustice and inhumanity, and an ambition to excel in every capacity, faculty, and virtue. If we suffer their minds to grovel and creep in infancy, they will grovel all their lives.” —John Adams (1756)

Patriots, this is yet another week in which I’ve endeavored to devote time to a long-overdue book project — The Patriot’s Primer on American Liberty.

Today, long-time Patriot Post supporter Walter Williams is standing in for me, with great commentary on the sad state of America’s education system.

Additionally, don’t miss the web’s best selection of conservative columnists on The Patriot Post’s Right Opinion page — and as always, without being assaulted by pages cluttered with advertising.

Don’t miss Williams’ column: Educational Fraud Continues.

Semper Vigilans Fortis Paratus et Fidelis
Pro Deo et Libertate — 1776
