Deliberate Dumbing Down of America

Here's one newspaper review from a few years back (when the book was first published):

The Washington Post
Page A2 / Wednesday, December 8, 1999
Culture, et cetera

Deliberately dumb

"Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt's new book, ' the deliberate dumbing down of america' is without doubt one of the most important publishing events in the annals of American education in the last hundred years.

"John Dewey's 'School and Society,' published in 1899, set American education on its course to socialism. Rudolf Flesch's `Why Johnny Can't Read' published in 1955, informed American parents that there was something terribly wrong with the way the schools were teaching children to read …

"But Iserbyt has done what no one else wanted or could do. She has put together the most formidable and practical compilation of documentation describing the well-planned 'deliberate dumbing down' of American children by their education system.'"

Samuel L. Blumenfeld, writing on "Deliberately dumbing us down,"
