It’s no surprise to hear that America’s education system is in disarray, with Common Core dumbing down young students, faith absent from education and underpaid teachers increasingly unfit to serve as effective educators. But all of that is by design, contends Alex Newman, an international journalist and co-author of “Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians are Using Government Schools to Destroy America’s Children.” He recently appeared on the “Revealing the Truth with Rabbi Walker” Web TV show to discuss the issue. Newman believes the government education system is not built to educate but to create obedient, unlearned drones who are subservient to authority. “It’s really the education system that is at the foundation of what eventually emerges as culture, politics, government and all the rest of it,” Newman began. “Education is where we went wrong, so if we’re going to fix this, education is the place to be involved.” Newman was educated at an array of top private schools but realizes his academic upbringing was irregular. “On the other end of the spectrum [from private schools], you have what’s going on in the government schools. It’s worse than a bad education: It’s a system deliberately designed to handicap the individual.”
According to Newman, government schools work to produce illiteracy, dumb down students and spread an atheistic worldview. Government education, he said, leads to “a hatred toward truth, objective reality and moral principles.” Newman believes this is no accident and that the entire system is set-up to fail students “by design.” While elites send their children to private schools for superior education, the vast majority of Americans are stuck in government schools. Average Americans are thus often left behind due to their educational upbringing and are unable to be as successful as the moneyed elites. Furthermore, Christians and children of other faiths in government schools often find their beliefs under attack, especially those who are devout adherents. A major cause of the dysfunction of government schools?
CHRISTIAN PUBLIC EDUCATION – IT’S THE LAW !!!
The Ordinance of 1787 in present Federal, Territorial, and State law
In education , our primary duty is to educate our citizens in the basics of preserving our republic and our freedoms. That means making sure you know where your freedoms come from and what they are by law. The best way we feel to do that is to keep it simple and to the point. That being the 3 basic insurers of your liberty and freedom, The Declaration of Independence which lays the basic premises of Freedom and Liberty, where it comes from, who is responsible for maintaining it, and what can be done and by whom to those who , in government, destroy it. Secondly, the Constitution, which puts definitive limits on the power of the Federal Government to take your Freedoms and Liberties. And Finally, the Ordinance of 1787 which directs the States through State Constitution requirements, to preserve the structure required to insure the Civil and Religious freedom of the people. The Ordinance speaks specifically to what must be taught in education.
The Ordinance was put into place by the Founders at the start of our nation and reauthorized after the Constitution to lay out the basic civil and religious liberty foundation of a Territory and then a State. It states:
: “...for extending the fundamental principles of civil and religious liberty, which form the basis whereon these republics, their laws, and constitutions are erected; to fix and establish those principles as the basis of all laws, constitutions, and governments, which forever hereafter shall be formed in the said territory; to provide also for the establishment of States, and permanent government therein.....”
“For the establishment of States and the permanent governments therein”
This is why we have a Governor, not a king or dictator. It is where habeas corpus protects us at the local level. It requires state elections and legislatures. It is where judges get their authority to exist in the States. It is the fundamental foundation of Freedom and liberty at our local and state level. It goes without saying that these basics cannot be eliminated. These are the base protectors of civil and religious liberty for you and me.
AS it states, the 2nd purpose of the Ordinance is to protect religious liberty. There are 2 requirements for this of every state, and I again quote:
Article 1. “ No person, demeaning himself in a peaceable and orderly Manner, shall ever be molested on account of his mode of worship or religious sentiments...
Article 3, sentence 1. “Religion, Morality, and Knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of instruction shall forever be encouraged.”
Therefore, it is an article of religious freedom as well as law, not educational preference or judicial ruling, that those who demean themselves peacefully cannot be molested for their mode of worship - and
That schools and the means of instruction shall teach religion, morality and knowledge as a requirement of their existence.
Again, this is the foundation of our religious liberty just as the others are our foundation of our civil liberty. In fact, good government cannot exist, in reality, unless it is primarily taught through this means, i.e. schools. Now, that you are no longer ignorant, do not any longer allow education to be coerced or subverted. If this LAW IS not being followed in your civil government or your schools, then your civil and religious liberty and freedom are, in fact, nonexistent.!!
The only question then, is WHICH RELIGION, WHICH MORALITY, AND WHICH RELIGIOUS KNOWLEDGE is to be taught? An cursory study of the foundational statements, rulings, and laws of our Nation easily answers this question. It is very obvious that the Foundation of this country in fact and in law, Judaeo/Christian and the Founding laws of this land make it clear that World View, moral and ethical foundation is to be passed on to the future citizens in Education . Therefore, those teachings, policies, and judicial rulings to the contrary are illegal and, by our laws, to be ignored and those who perpetrate them are to be held accountable by law and by the people. Every school and school district that does not teach these principles and from whence they come is operating illegally and subversively by Federal and State law!!

Our Constitution was made for a moral and religious people, it is wholly inadequate to the Government of any other"
George Washington - “Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that a national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles.” “Do not let anyone claim to be a true American if they ever attempt to remove religion from politics.”
