“If you’ve read Marx, there’s really no reason to read Howard Zinn,” notes author Daniel Flynn, but many have read Zinn’s million-selling A People’s History of the United States. As Rutgers history professor David Greenberg notes in a 2013 New Republic article headlined “Agit-Prof,” Zinn’s famous book is “a pretty lousy piece of work.” Even so, it gets great reviews within a circle of Marxist academics such as Eric Foner, leftist rockers such as Rage Against the Machine, and actors such as Matt Damon, who in Good Will Hunting tells his psychiatrist that A People’s History will “knock you on your ass.”
For Howard Zinn, America was evil and capitalism bad – except for his lucrative publishing deal, and prestigious professorship at Boston University. Zinn was pretty quiet about the Soviet Union and what he might have done during the Stalin-Hitler Pact, but Mao Tse-Tung’s China was the closest thing to a “people’s government.” Read more at ... https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/269896/enemy-our-schools-lloyd-bil...

There is no doubt in my mind that the young are aggressively being indoctrinated.
History is just that history and obviously can be interrupted in different ways. That interruption should be left to the reader. Critical thinking skills to be encouraged.

Get crackin parents.
I swore years ago that I wouldn't criticize any post here or for that matter respond. That being said, I have found this a complete waste of time because it does not even come close to defining the REAL CAUSE of the horror, corrupt indoctrination centers called the public school system.
IF people really want to find out who is the real problem, just go into your bathroom and look in the mirror.
Every single America who have children in school and those of us who don't, are the blame.
I can hear people out there yelling, "HOW DARE YOU? I do this, I do that."
I'll ask you this, "Are you a constitutionalist? Do you believe in the Constitution? If the answer is yes, then why do you allow your community/state to accept the unconstitutional redistribution of wealth called federal funding for education?
JUST WHERE IN THE CONSTITUTION DOES THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT GET THE AUTHORITY TO USE TAXPAYERS, MONEY FOR SCHOOLS?
Now, I must do a shameless plug and maybe break all rules but if your really interested http://screaminthewilderness.blogspot.com/2015/05/people-trust-thei...
Finally, though I' m not a professional writer, I do run my own blog and no time would I reference an article that I would expect my readers to go out and pay for. As one who values research & his readers, I would purchase the "document", read it and in turn cite the relevant info and then reference it in a footnote. THEN if the reader wants to purchase the document that's up to them.
"JUST WHERE IN THE CONSTITUTION DOES THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT GET THE AUTHORITY TO USE TAXPAYERS, MONEY FOR SCHOOLS"
Our 'Living Constitution' 16th amendment allows the Federal government to tax, spend and redistribute.
"IF people really want to find out who is the real problem, just go into your bathroom and look in the mirror"
It's too late, even Steven Moore accepts our Democracy Living Constitution (14th, 16th, 17th Amendment).
