America spends more money and time on the education of children than any country in the world.  But what results have we seen from the massive spending? Why is there so much bureaucracy? Are we truly educating children and preparing them for the future or is our system producing children who really don’t know logic, reason, and critical thinking?

Some people are convinced the current system is set up to produce “widgets” who fit into the global plan of humanism.

What are the alternatives available to parents who are concerned with the direction of government schools? Dr. Duke Pesta of Freedom Project Academy joins us this morning.
