Our nation is in rapid retreat. We cannot figure out what it means to define moral standards. Why is that? In response this post, Libertarianism: It’s not just for dopeheads anymore!, I gave three reasons. 

What was the cause? I doubt it was one particular thing. Here is my list.

1. Public school system. We put politicians in charge of educating our children. We educate our children with a socialist system run by four layers of bureaucrats: the feds, the state government, local government, and a school board.

2. The mass media. We allowed the mass media to baby sit our kids.

3. The welfare state. The center of our communities should be our churches. Our churches should be the place where we come together to take care of each other, but we have abandoned our churches and God for the Great Bureaucrat. We have failed to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and unto God that which is God’s.

(from here)

What troubles me is that this decline in moral standards shows no sign of diminishing. We have done almost nothing to stop it! In fact, we keep making the situation worse.  Check out this post, National Academic Standards, at the PWC Education Reform Blog. Here is how it begins.

In case you missed it, what your children are taught in school is no longer controlled by your local school district or state. What your children will be taught in every subject at every grade level will be controlled by a national consortium, possibly the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). In June of this year the CCSSI, a division of the CCSSO and the National Governor’s Association, released the national academic standards for Math and English, known as the Common Core. National standards for Science are currently being developed and national History and Foreign Language standards will follow sometime thereafter. Almost every state has agreed to replace their state academic standards with the Common Core standards.

Do you love your children? Do you trust politicians? Then why have you put people you do not trust in charge of the education of your children and grandchildren? With a national monopoly run by teacher’s unions, how will you even know if they are doing a good job? If all our schools are run by the Federal government, what will be your basis for comparison? Are these your reasons?  You think:

  • A government-run monopoly is better? The oppressive weight of four layers of government bureaucracy is character building.
  • We can count upon our government to provide unbiased regulation of itself?
  • My child will outgrow his or her education?
  • We should sacrifice our children to the greater good? For the sake of conformity, no parent (except the rich) should be permitted to send their child to the school of their choice.
