Better things to write about

I would like to respond to a recent column written by Thomas Sowell entitled "Educators' Role in Our Society." Early in the article, Mr. Sowell states that Chinese educators were a factor in "the rise of the Communists to power in China." Then he states: "I see our own educators playing a similar role in creating a mindset that undermines American society." To this end he blames Professor John Dewey's conception of education because he claims Dewey "saw the role of the teacher, not as a transmitter of a society's culture, but as one strategically placed, with an opportunity to condition students to want a different kind of society."
