Episode 28: Why did Elon Musk say it's easier to land a person on Mars than to change the education system in America? (Jan. 12, 2022) Our professors of education want to assure us that money and race can explain everything. I suspect that is a shallow argument. If rats live in your water supply, you can expect strange illnesses. In the case of edu…
 
Episode 27: Cheating should be eliminated (Jan. 5, 2022) Episode 27: Cheating, which our public schools tend to enable, is a threat not just to the quality of the schools but to the success of the society. Cheaters might very well obtain jobs and responsibilities that they are not qualified to fulfill. Even simple jobs require specific competencies…
 
Episode 26: Normal people don't want absolute power (Dec. 22, 2021) Socialism/Communism has two tricks: promise everything good, and then be willing to do anything bad. Ruthless schemers make elaborate promises to gain favor with the people, and then they abuse that power any way you can imagine, as history shows. That's how some really ruthless pe…
 
Episode 25: The Case Against Whole Word (Dec. 15, 2021) Reading is so crucial for young students. Non-phonetic approaches will cripple children before they even start. Don't be misled. All research going back a hundred years overwhelmingly supports phonics over sight-words. I think it's very important that every adult understand this fundamental ch…
 
Episode 24: Communism Is For Haters (Dec. 8, 2021) The challenge to our society is to distinguish benevolent do-gooders from people promoting destructive transformation. Everything will be destroyed but somehow the world is supposed to be a better place? Is that even possible? Even worse I suspect that our Socialists and Communists don't want it to…
 
Episode 23: American Business—and Everyone Else—Needs Better Schools (Dec. 1, 2021) Our public schools are sickly from top to bottom. America is dragged down by this infirmity. Media don't help; indeed they lie to a less-and-less informed public and that's a big danger. Remember the four years when the media described how Trump was working with the…
 
Episode 22: The Ugly Truth About K-12 (Nov. 24, 2021) Our top educators have blabbed almost continuously for a century about all the wonderful reforms they wanted to implement. At bottom, what did they all add up to? Dumbing down, deliberately and continuously. That's the ugly truth. As a practical matter, everyone has to confront the massive amoun…
 
Episode 21: A Quick Guide to the Reading Wars (Nov. 17, 2021) Reading is the single most important skill. But our public schools insist on teaching it wrong. This is well-known because ed professors have done a lot of research over the last hundred years. Everyone should get involved in winning this debate. If you want children to read, teach them …
 
Episode 20: Reflections on the Ultimate Goal of K-12 Education (Nov. 10, 2021) The purpose of this podcast is to tell you gently that our public schools are deformed by two kinds of educational malpractice. Children are intentionally dumbed down by pedagogical nonsense. Additionally, and here we have an assist from Ayn Rand, children are kept infan…
 
Episode 19: Big Lies in K-12 (Nov. 3, 2021) Public school are full of dishonesty and deception. Parents have to deal with this. First, understand what's going on. Second, take steps to work around the problem. Here's the background. The Education Establishment has concocted many ways of undermining K-12 education, typically by lying about what is p…
 
Episode 18: Why Liberal Arts Education is Good for Everyone (Oct. 27, 2021) Why have American public schools gotten dumber and dumber over the last hundred years? Simple. Because the schools have systematically driven out the most important ingredient: knowledge. And the importance of knowledge is not knowing lots of miscellaneous facts, it's being…
 
Episode 17: Who Can Control The Control Freaks? (Oct. 20, '21) What is the real flaw in progressive education? What is the secret sin? Mainly, progressives act as if they are trying to create the best schools possible. That's a con. They're trying to create schools that will produce the socialist dreams they have. RELEVANT ARTICLE: Normal healthy p…
 
Episode 16: Have the American media betrayed us? (October 13, 2021) True story, most of the work I've done in my life is related to journalism, writing, publishing, editing, et al. I wanted to think the professionals controlling our daily papers are people like me. I wanted to think well of them. Big mistakes. Fifteen years late, I realize that the…
 
Episode 15: Sir Ken Robinson was wrong and destructive. (Oct. 6, 2021) The grand tradition throughout the history of progressive education is to claim you have solved every problem in the schools, but what you've actually done is make everything worse. The great new ideas typically function as viruses, parasites, invasive species, and similar. Cont…
 
Episode 14 (Sept. 29): Socialism versus Education. A lively run-through of the major developments that will take you to socialism or communism. A key player throughout is education, or education that has been corrupted to serve ideological purposes. Once this process starts moving, usually it turns out badly because too much power has been concentr…
 
Episode 13: How We Can Save K-12 The people running the schools are the people ruining the schools. They think of themselves as saviors from a higher plane. But look at the damage they do. They're more accurately called parasites. The public needs to understand what's going on in the schools. Specifically, Americans need to understand how all the b…
 
Episode 12: what does student centered even mean? Anything? Sept. 15, 2015 When our top educators start suggesting that children can do their job better than they can, we need to let these people retire. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The three recommended guides and an excellent work by each: Why …
 
Episode 11: We Can Have Better Schools At Less Cost (Sept. 8) More than most people imagine, the entire education sector is set up as a profit-making enterprise. Sure, most of these people are socialists and communists wanting to transform this country. But why should they pay for their political agenda? The cute trick is to make you pay for their …
 
Episode 10, Sept. 1: Max Efficiency: How To Study A New Subject Some suggestions on how to make education more efficient. School is starting. There are many clever young people, probably on a trajectory toward college, who will find value in these ideas. Weird but true, I don't think the Education Establishment thinks in terms of efficiency. If we …
 
Episode 9 summary: why dyslexia is for the most part a fraudulent spin on a common school problem. Children don't have dyslexia so much as the schools give them dyslexia-like symptoms. Public schools routinely claim that 15-20% of children have dyslexia. Done deal. Nothing you can do about it. Phonics experts say real dyslexia is virtually nonexist…
 
August 18 -- Episode 8: How To Teach In The Third World (15.11 min) Poor schools can do great work, conversely a rich country like America can have many dreadful schools. The “third world” is more a state of mind. If the leaders are smart and sincere, kids will be well educated, no matter where. Podcast Overview LET'S FIX EDUCATION: OVERVIEW Recurr…
 
Episode 7: The Proof Is In The Plodding (23:11 min) When students are happy and excited, they're probably learning a lot. However, our public schools are characterized by a lot of plodding, by students and administrators both. Plodding is the giveaway that you're doing it wrong. PODCAST OVERVIEW AT END For more info about "Saving K-12", see Lit4u.c…
 
Episode 6: Why Teach History? (24.09 min) History is fun. It's also fundamental. You have to know how the world got where it is. Sadly, most of our students have no sense of time, no sense of what came before what. Students can rarely name a date within 50 years, or point to a geographical location within 500 miles. Because nobody ever required eve…
 
Episode 5: What's Missing In Education?? (13:30 min) What's missing is education. The traditional content, the basics, the essential skills, the vital academic center—-all of that is missing. The whole reason for building schools has been undermined and continually tossed aside. Bruce Deitrick Price's main education site: Improve-Education.org LET'…
 
Episode 4: The Crisis In Education: What Caused It? (18:48 min) A quick look at the personalities and philosophies that shaped American K-12 education starting more than 100 years ago. These people were mostly Progressives (i.e., Socialists). They had a new vision of why we build schools in the first place. For them, the goal is to create a new kin…
 
Episode 3: Hey! Teach Those Kids To Read (17:16 min) The United States has 50 million functional illiterates, primarily because the public schools insist on using an inferior method known as sight-words. Phonetic languages, such as English, are best learned phonetically. Fix the reading crisis and we will have a renaissance. At present, many childr…
 
Episode 2: How I Became An Education Reformer (21:14 min) I had no grand visions. Rather, I was fascinated by the unnecessary failure throughout the school system. In sports they talk about unforced errors. K-12 is crawling with unforced errors. Why? I want everyone to understand the bogus theories and methods that cause all the failure. My goal is…
 
Episode 1: Students Don’t Know Anything (18:39 min) Look at any stats. Listen to K-12 teachers and college professors. The message is always the same. Our young people don't know much, especially the ordinary kids. We can safely say that our Education Establishment hates facts and scorns the teaching of knowledge. June 30, 2021 LET'S FIX EDUCATION:…
