It's official now.
No matter how you measure it, boys are failing in schools
That was the shocking report from the Voice of America
"In classrooms across the U.S., there is a new trend that
worries educators," it said. "In every category and
demographic group, boys are falling behind in school."
Was it shocking to you? It wasn't so shocking to me.
I've seen this trend up-close and personal – even though
I am the father of five girls, none of whom will ever again
set foot in a government-controlled classroom.
I even wrote about this trend in my latest book, "Taking
About 20 years ago, what we call "public education" in
this country was taken over by activists who, among other
things, declared war on the male sex.
That's when you began seeing so many boys "medicated"
because they were "hyperactive." That's when you began
seeing boys, who previously excelled over girls in school,
falling below the fairer sex in achievement.
Now there are many, many things wrong with the schools in
America. In my opinion, they are beyond redemption. The only
thing a conscientious parent can do now is to make other
arrangements for the education of their children. Any
compromise with the evil of government schools will only
shortchange your kids. That's my opinion.
But what's happening to the kids in government schools is
still going to haunt all of us – even those who choose
wisely to pull their kids out and school them at home or
We are breeding monsters in the government schools. We
are breeding time bombs. We are breeding social problems
that will plague the country for 100 years if we last that
And right at the top of those problems is what we are
doing to boys.
A generation ago, the social activists decided there was
really no difference between boys and girls. All of the
observable distinctions were the result, they said, of
social conditioning. If we just treated the sexes the same,
the differences between them would disappear over time.
It was sheer ignorance, hubris and malevolence – trying
to change human nature through social conditioning.
Any parent knows just how different boys and girls are.
You don't need a Ph.D. to see it. You just need common
sense. You just need the innate wisdom God gave each of us
when He created us – man and woman.
Boys are being drugged in the classroom today for no
other crime and no other illness than being boys.
Boys are more active than girls. They do not take well to
sitting for hours at a desk and listening to instruction
from a usually female teacher. They need to get up and run
around. Failure to acknowledge this simple fact has resulted
in the over-medication of millions of boys over the last 30
It's a crime. Just one of many perpetrated by the
education wardens of America.
I don't expect the education establishment suddenly to
"get it." But I do expect American parents to comprehend the
abominations to which they are subjecting their children
when they turn them over to state control.
Nothing can redeem this monster – not all the PTA
meetings in the world. Don't think you can change it or
reform it through parental involvement. The only way to fix
it is to withdraw from it, refuse to participate in it,
It's time to save your kids from the humiliation and
If enough of us do that, then maybe the hopelessly
corrupt government schools will simply implode of their own
