Episode 6 - Deep Thoughts with Bob - Education
President Bush once said, "Rarely is the question asked, is our children learning?" Actually, the question gets asked all the time with the resounding response NO! So what's the matter with kids today? What's wrong with education? Why is our children not learning? Is the problem not enough funding? Not enough parental involvement? No prayer in school? Too many guns? Not enough teachers with guns? Was John Dewey full of it and are waterfalls truly sublime?
Josh is joined by Bob Burch to discuss the conservative approach to education and to explore what's actually at the heart of our educational woes.
For further reading on some of the books discussed in the show I'd highly recommend checking out The Abolition of Man by C. S. Lewis and John Dewey and the Decline of American Education by Henry Edmondson.
