Propaganda

宣传

That brings me to my last point:propaganda. American students get the same “politinformation hours” we did inthe Soviet unx. They study Newsela, for instance, a kiddy news website with aheavy-handed left-wing spin. It’s easy to identify, but American kids areill-equipped to resist it. Without the canon, and with diminishing influence ofmonotheism, without the streamline logic of mathematics, what is there toprotect the children from the noxious influences of propaganda?

由此进入我的最后一个讨论要点:政治宣传。美国学生们其实同样有我们在苏联会有的那种“政教时间”。比如说他们会去研究Newsela网,那是一个严重左倾的儿童新闻网站。这是很容易甄别的,但美国的小孩很难抵抗它的影响。没有判断标准,一神教信仰的影响不断式微,还欠缺数学逻辑,如此还有什么能够保护孩子免受有毒的政治宣传影响呢?



I know other ethnic minority communitieshave similar experiences. I’ve heard them yell at teachers and administrators.The most significant way America fails its immigrants is not “white supremacy”or the border crisis. We invite some of the most educated people from aroundthe world and put their children’s hearts, minds, and bodies into dehumanizinginstitutions we call “schools.”

我知道其他的少数族裔群体也有相似的体验,我听过他们对着老师和管理部门大喊大叫。美国最对不起移民的不是白人至上主义或者边境危机。我们把全世界受教育程度最高的那批人请到这个国家,却把他们孩子的心灵、头脑和身体,都扔进剥夺人性的被称为“学校”的机构里去了。

What options do immigrants have?Homeschooling requires resources that are not always available. Besides, ourexperience shows that traditional public schools, when given the properstructure and curriculum, can teach very well. America had this veryeducational system 50 years ago — but, no, bureaucrats and special interestshad to tinker with it, and they continue destruction by “innovating.” We neededucational reactionaries to restore the once-working model.

移民群体还有什么路可走吗?家教所必需的资源并不总是能满足的。除此以外,我们的经验表明:传统的公立学校,只要赋予其合适的组织架构和课程,就可以把孩子教得很好的。五十年前的美国恰恰拥有这样的教育体制——官僚和特殊利益集团必须对其进行修补,但他们却在用所谓的“创新”在继续毁灭教育。我们需要教育方面的复古主义者,去恢复曾经行之有效的那套模式。
