November 2002 edition -- THE FLIGHT FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS
A devastating look at the current state of America's government school system -- and the spectacular growth in homeschooling -- is the focus of the November 2002 Whistleblower.
Titled "THE FLIGHT FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS," the issue documents the increasingly bizarre curricula (from "jihad games" to "celebrating the dead"), notorious "zero-tolerance" discipline (suspending children for playing cops-and-robbers on the playground or giving a cough drop to a friend) and increasingly overt sexual indoctrination (homosexual propaganda now taught beginning in kindergarten). It shows how and why the government's education system has become so corrupt that former U.S. Secretary of Education William Bennett now goes on national television to exhort parents to take their children out of the learning institutions over which he once presided -- and to homeschool them instead.
Documenting the explosion of interest in private schools and home education, November's Whistleblower then zeroes in on the fascinating world of homeschooling ÌÎ_Ì´å showing how and why home-taught children consistently outperform their public- and private-schooled peers on standardized tests, and are now being actively sought out by Ivy League colleges.
