None Dare Call It Education is a book that I was recently required to read for a Master’s class that I was taking. The book was written by John Stormer. I was familiar with Dr. Stormer from my high school days. I remember our church had a pile of his previous book None Dare Call it Treason. But, I never read Treason and though I was familiar with the book on education during my college days, I never got around to reading it.
I wrote in my paper as a summary:
In None Dare Call it Education John Stormer outlines dangerous trends in the educationlal system and the significance of them. Throughout the book he shows how certain philosophies are played out in the classroom as well as current names of these philosophies. He leaves the reader with not just a bunch of philosophical facts, but tells how, specifically, the individual can fight these trends in their own community.
He spends quite a bit of time giving examples of how worldly educational philosophy is eroding traditional family values. Though he paints a pretty grim picture of what can happen in the public school system today, it is important to remember that each child is an individual. If you lose your child to a wicked worldly system, you only had one chance to get it right.
I would encourage any parent who is interested in their child’s education and making sure their child is not only educated well, but also with traditional values, to take time to read this book.
Dr. Stormer does not leave the reader with no hope. There is a whole section at the back of the book dedicated to ideas and resources which can help you turn the system around in your area. It really is an encouraging book in that he does a good job in equipping the parent who sees hope and wants to make a difference.
