For our March 2015 meeting, Sharon Hanek, aka “Research Mom” (view her latest newsletter featuring “Baby Common Core”), presented to us a history of government-run education. To review the wealth of information presented, watch the meeting video below posted at our YouTube Channel:

To supplement Hanek’s brilliant presentation, we recommend taking Hillsdale College’s FREE online course “A Proper Understand of K-12 Education: Theory and Practice“. Here, the professors provide correct thinking of educational goals and explain proven methods. Dr. Fennell compares traditional education (with discussion of St. Augustine and C.S. Lewis’ thoughts on education) and modern Progressive education theories (characterized by Sigmund Freud and John Dewey’s naturalistic worldview with no eternal truths and education by chance).
The Progressive mindset has produced Common Core which the Kitsap Patriots Tea Party took the lead in Washington in adopting a resolution in opposition.
