    Literacy is important to maintain our nation. The neurological foundations in the
    brain which control learning from reading are under attack by the toxins mentioned above causing a delayed development of the brain, yet we are allowing students to
    enter school based on chronological age and NOT on neurodevelopment. We may
    not be able to stop the contaminants but we can get educated about brain development and pre-school preparation. Dropouts and youth offenders have
    delayed neurological development NOT an intelligence problem. Children must
    be prepared for academic studies. Boys are affected more and need this special
    training. Functional Neurology is challenging the accepted medicating of learning
    challenged children. Melillo's book, Disconnected Kids, provides a new approach
    to student preparation, to restore and/or enhance function. We pay an high percentage of our taxes to produce educated citizens. Are we getting what we pay
    for? I don't think so. Whether in home or public schooling our youth need proper
    functional neurological testing and training in preparation for academic learning.
    Goddard writes in Reflexes, Learning and Behavior that all learning takes place in the brain and that the concept for maturational readiness for learning is not new.
    Despite the increasing body of evidence to support the value of neurodevelopmental milestones at the time of school entry, these tests have not been integrated into standard school pre-assessments and chronological age alone
    remains the criterion. If a child fails to develop autonomic control over balance and motor skills, many other aspects of learning can be negatively affected, even though
    the child has average or above average intelligence. These children enter school at a definite disadvantage in terms of neurological development and therefore lack the necessary physical abilities to succeed. This lack of control affects coordinated eye movement creating reading challenges. Much work has been done on "vision"
    problems and juvenile delinquency by the Memphis College of Optometry's
    Developmental Optometry Research Department. Our young students need to be assessed and trained for coordinated eye movement BEFORE being taught to read
    or comprehension and attention problems will continue to plague our students.

    Ron I'm sure these people are going to the capital we need candy bars the healthy ones dark chocolate from Hershey with vote for me I can earn it for the good. Remember ww11 our fathers gave out chocolate bar In middle east and Europe until 45. Then when elected all that has to be done is ask what can I sign so these people can earn to the good today by then they will have learned the first value in life how to offer and receive an offer for the good. Ron call Hershey and set it up my guest would be September. Should be close to 30cent on the dollar because Hershey knows like you Know it’s better to put thieves to work for their good as well as our good

    Education dose not begin in school and end's after your existence
    schools do have their own a agendas it has taken from you the values your parents had, not just your mom or dad but theirs too. This first value is earn what you offer don't just take it. This defines the meaning of good. You earned the offer thru the good you did to what you learned from who you are from the beginning of your life using what you were born with. Over 53% of you are wrong by taking or receiving from those who earn thru the good they do. Very soon you will be at the capital using the funds you took like food stamps and welfare ck and no way to return or knowing what to do next because what you have learned is not for the good. yelling your lungs out do something because the ones who have earn to the good no longer are around. You are forming a new type of slavery by just taking from those who do earn to good can no long do enough beyond taking care of themselves this type slavery will abolish it self. Ron again I will tell you it’s not revolution it’s revelation the fed or better revelation the people. Those who earn thru the good they are the government not those who are elected or receive what we have earned thru taxation. So I ask who is the thief?

    Schools and homeschooling have a lot to offer when both focus on teaching kids to read and flooding them with academic success: www.brainsarefun.com.

    "...nobody yet has really captured education from a Libertarian perspective."

    It seems you never heard of John Taylor Gatto! "The Underground History of Education in America," "Dumbing Us Down," & "Weapons of Mass Instruction."
    Outstanding books by an experienced teacher who witnessed public schooling from the inside, has done outstanding research, and is an excellent writer. Like any truly educated person with god sensibilities, he is very libertarian. A champion not so much of "home" schooling, but un-schooling. For real education happens everywhere, all the time, not only at home. We are not isolationists. Un-schoolers are very involved with their communities and with the world.

    As a retired Teacher Specialist, Guidance & Crises Counselor, and Adminstrator, I can tell you what's wrong with Education in a few sentences: Affirmative Action has placed thousands and thousands of Blacks and Bi-Racials in teaching positions even though they can NOT read or write above a second-grade level; Teacher Unions have kept these Minorities in those positions; Teacher Unions have protected LAZY Teachers from being Fired; and the Public School's curriculum is Politically Controlled!
    Solution? Kick-out the Unions and Affirmative Action. Get politics out of education!

    I've been on textbook and workbook committees when we selected particular books; however, the books we selected were never purchased because they were Not giving kickbacks to the Corrupt School Administrtors. Futhermore, Jessie Jackson's Rainbow Group controlls much of what is being taught. Solution? Remove lobbyists from textbook and workbook influence!

    Finally, the Students need to have at least 50% of the decision-making as to what and how they will learn. If the students are not interested in both the material and the learning methods, student achievement will be much less that the potential; that's why Home Schoolers out-perform Public and Private School students by 36% percentile points across the board.
    Solution? Group students and learning methods by their interests!

    I home school my son and we use the internet, especially "Kahnacademy" and "Softschools", in addition to The American Education Publishing curriculum inter-active books by McGraw-Hill. Anytime he has a challenging question, we research it right then. Based on all of the above, I have just stated what is wrong with Education in America and how it can be fixed.
    Kahnacademy (funded by Bill Gates) is FREE without any under-the-table-kickbacks, and the thousands of Math and Science inter-active intruction there is much better than America's best instructors. I rest my case.

    You guys have good comments about the elite's dollar scam throughout history. Apparently you all read Creature from Jeckyl Is. by G Edward Griffin.

    I have degrees in economics and electrical engineering and after reading Griffin's Creature' elite expose and spending 30 yrs in industrial technology, I realize why Ron Paul's writing this book on education. The Griffin book and other underground web information sources expose vast censored gaps in our educational system.

    This scandal involves not only the elite's repeated counterfeiting money scam called central banking and the role of the Fed, the controlled press and the vast secret network of payoffs to the top policy and decision makers at all levels of our government.

    As an economics major I now realize my education was dumbed down and I was short changed with huge censored gaps in the knowledge. No wonder economics is still an unintelligable mass of confusing constructs. The elite doesn't want the academics or the public to know what the Fed does to manipulate our economy. I still don't know what caused stagflation during the 70s and many other mysteries.

    Our medical education as well as our economic education is censored so we have no understanding about the history of medicine or health in America. Only on the web do we come to find out that the elite-supported quacks (AMA Allopaths) of 100 yrs ago took over our medicine and drove the true healers that used naturopathy and homeopathy out. One hundred years ago the allopaths could only attract 17% of the patients because the public feared their caustic, poisonous, ineffective and dangerous treatments.

    A libertarian or competitive overhaul of education will be necessary if we are to compete in this newly hyper-competitive world. Our students must be able to select value-added teachers that can impart practical knowledge in order to invent new products, services and skills. Our current educational system is not only censored and dumbed down as I've mentioned above in regards to money and medicine, but it fails to teach technical skills that one can use to invent products.

    There's very little real-world examples used in math, engineering, physics and other disciplines. There's very little instruction about real-world parts and processes that would vastly make the lessons more informative and interesting and help with inventing and innovation. I suspect this lack of real-world relevancy in our education is because most of our teachers are real-world incompetent and are faking this knowledge.

    Ron Paul's on the right track to emphasize a libertarian or competitive overhaul to remove the incompetent or dead wood in our schools. It's not just the elite's censorship but the institutional entrenchment of many useless incompetent teachers that teach at least 50% useless knowledge or academic constructs that represents the chief problem.

    But more fundamental than all this is the elite's poisoning agenda of the population primarily through toxic vaccines and fluoridated water in order to chemically dumb down our society. They gather at their Bilderburg meetings to tell each other how they are the caretakers of an irrational animal-like humanity and that their deadly poisoning agenda is required to suppress world population and fertility. I'm sure this eases their conscious as they know they are hurting and even killing people. I believe their real motive, whether they realize it or not is to maintain their billions and vast power by keeping the population's health off balance and preventing a revolution against their class.

    Even if you had a competitive, reformed educational system as Ron Paul seeks, as long as Americans are chemically dumbed down with toxins from fluoride, mercury in vaccines and amalgam fillings, GMO foods, MSG, fructose, aspertame and many other sources, Americans will be handicapped with disabilities that other competing countries don't burden their children with. This poisoning agenda of the elite threatens us with extinction as inflation and economic instability increase.

    Few American's like Ron Paul understand the great challenges and mortal dangers we're going to be facing soon. Ron Paul understands that the elite's poisoning agenda is the primary threat more pressing than a dysfunctional education system. But he also knows of the immediate and automatic public dismissal of anyone who talks of conspiracies.

    He understands that the pliant, subservient, anxious, and easily-manipulated sheep-like people (sheeple) have been trained by the elite's media and education machine to immediately turn on and turn off all conspiracy talk. For fear of immediately being marginalized and forever ignored he is taking on a more manageable threat in promoting education reform.

    Anyone familiar with the big picture knows that one's open-mindedness to new ideas and new evidence or even a strong drive to seek truth is directly related to how physically toxic they are. As the elite is aware, toxins like fluoride, promote weakness, anxiety and emotional dependency and a close-mindedness to any information that disturbs their fragile and crumbling world that mirrors their crumbling health. Few realize that the elite gave fluoride to Hitler in order to better control his victims.

    Convincing a sick population of the need for education reform is probably going to be as near impossible as convincing the sheeple they are being poisoned. Regardless of what the message or reform is, you're not likely to penetrate the toxin-induced anxiety that fosters a blind allegiance to conventional sheeple institutions. Because all other messages are just too disturbing to their already depressed, anxious and crumbling world view.

    BTW, Charlotte Iserbyte has also battled long against our compulsory indoctrination system of student conditioning for industry's best interests.

    Utoob her great expose of her studies of American education and her discovery and information about the Skull & Bones her father & g-father were both members of, from her father's papers once he died.

    iserbyt skull will pop it to the search top.

    Also see "Dealers in Death" on utoob.

    Also see Chip Barlett's tale of choppering for ole Bush tool & coke smuggler Ollie. Chip's body was found naked and tortured on some beach for his whistleblowing.

    Also try CIA ESF by DeCarbonnell, a coverup of sorts for Great Grandad? Maybe somewhat, but the rest is certainly as bonechilling as enlightening. The SectTreas's have total unaccountable power and discretion to rig global FX & metals markets with ZERO oversight to keep Pig Dollar viable in this pretend and extend downward debt fiat spiral the world is awash in a race to the bottom to.

    Spooner's "No Treason,.."

    Sect XVIII gives one Spooner's quintiscential and vivid post-CW insight into the machinations of banksters. You just know in your heart he had them pegged just as did TJ, AJ, McFadden....and Ron Paul.

    This CW era abolitionist and lawyer well tells the way private banksters enslave the people; via their pursestrings, first to monarchs, then to politicians both bought off or as their agents emplaced, eg Col House, Vanderlip, Hiss, Harry Dexter White, Benjamin Strong...ad infinitum...always of the Morgan, Rockefeller or Rothschild money power ambits.....pre-selections that have infested presidential cabinets for far too long. See augustreview.com on that front.

    NOTHING else explains so well this world where the citizens supposedly owe via taxation the never payable debts of the bankster puppet servile govts have shared the people's booty with.

    Murray Rothbard said of the fraudulent meme; that we owe the debt to ourselves - "that the question should rather be, Just WHO is the WE here, and WHO is the OURSELVES?"

    Who has stood up to them recently other than Ron Paul? Well, Andrew Jackson gave them a good tasted of opposition. Please consider that Andrew Jackson only completed half the task. This is the crux of the US Civil War. Please hear me out because I love the USA and know that it is a very important part of establishing a Nation of God.

    After Andrew Jackson killed the money changers the States were left without a National currency thus forced to try to issue their own. Personally I am not against any group of sovereign citizens establishing mediums of exchange and no one should be. However, doing commerce with States can be lubricated with a National constitutional medium of exchange with proper representation through the US Constitution.

    The US Constitution allows for the Congress of Elected Representatives the power to issue a National Currency. Think, prior to the US Revelation each colony of the original continental congress issued their own notes that represented the labor of the peoples who comprised it. It worked so dame good that the money changers who controlled the crown passed a bill forbidding all the colonies from issuing their own currencies. This was enforced by buying hessian troops.

    A National currency was introduced by Alexander Hamilton. Not a bad idea unless it is controlled and issued by the US Congress. Jefferson immediately resigned when Washington turned over that central control. Please consider our ‘Great Warrior Washington’s’ position. The French Navy had just circumvented the red coats and the British Thrown was negotiating. Washington’s wisdom and understanding of what the US America was to evolve into socio-politically was more important than continuing the war to control the economics of current trade systems.

    Andrew Jackson circumvented maritime control for America and boldly killed the unconstitutional national bank. Lincoln did not fall for the plan and told the diabolical money changers that he would not loan money from them to fight the same insurrection that the money changers created. Lincoln completed the second half of Andrew Jackson by honoring all American laborers with the Green Backs!

    You can take me now or you can take me latter but I will never go away!
    Creation and evolution are one in the same.
    We are entering the final stages of the stupid ludicrous central banking freaks system. Batten down!

    It is very simple to understand but hard to take. When the power over the printing of monies is privately controlled a civilization self-destructs.

    Please consider this. The current privately owned issuance of global currencies stems from a hand full of folks. Now, they are smart and know that they cannot print money and go on a shopping spree without destroying their own system. They know this!

    What they have to accomplish is issuing their currencies into circulation so that can be stained with the blood sweet and tears of true labor. True Units of Labor! Then through the collection of interest they can splurge on the cream of the crop. What is the bookkeeping system of exchange units of labor worth? The interest paid through the taxation of a government is the money changers greatest achievement, sapping the cream off the human crop.
    So, with that consider that the cold war and the space race were instigated to increase the debt of nations. What is more expensive than maintaining a nuclear arsenal? What is more terrifying than a nuclear war? They shot JFK! They are trying to create a global government. They will FAIL!
    They always fail. Every time throughout history but because they control the money supple they come out smelling like a rotten corps and keep on trying it over and over.
