The Transformative Pedagogy Of Bill Ayers

The Transformative Pedagogy Of Bill Ayers

By PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY | Posted Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Will William Ayers be secretary of education in a Barack Obama administration? All parents should ponder that possibility before
making their choice for president on Nov. 4

After all, Ayers is a friend of Obama, and professor Ayers’
expertise is training teachers and developing public school
curriculum. That’s been his mission since he gave up planting
bombs in government buildings (including the U.S. Capitol and
the Pentagon) and assaulting police officers.

Ayers brashly admitted that he was “guilty as hell” in planting
bombs in the 1970s, and that he has no regrets and feels that
he and his Weather Underground associates “didn’t do enough.”

Ayers speaks openly of his desire to use America’s public school classrooms to train a generation of revolutionaries who will overturn
the U.S. social and economic regime. He teaches that America is oppressive and unjust, socialism is the solution, and wealth and resources should be redistributed.

Most of Ayers’ socialist propaganda is financed with taxpayer money
at state universities and teachers colleges. Some of the schools that have adopted Ayers-style pedagogy have received grants from
ACORN or from Bill Gates’ charitable foundation.

You might assume that Ayers’ political ideas would put him on the
outer fringe of the left-wing education establishment. However, his peers recently elected him to serve as vice president for curriculum
in the American Education Research Association, the largest organization of education school professors and researchers.

Is an appointment to the U.S. Department of Education his next career advancement?
Is Ayers’ transformative public school curriculum the kind of “change” Obama will bring us?

    The notion that Bill Ayers would become the Secretary of Education is absurd at best. Why even post such refutable rubbish on this blog. President Barack Huusein Obama will appoint people to his administration that are qualified to perform the duties of there appointment. Regardless of party or idealogical views unlike past Presidents whom appoint based on party and friendship. President Barack Hussein Obama is new and fresh. Change is in the air.

    Patriot, The possibility that Ayers coud become Secretary of Education is
    just as absurd as the possibility of Obama, a communist, could become
    President of the United States.

  3. Patriot Says:

    Sorry but your worst nightmare is about to becom reality in less thatn 2 weeks. President Barack Hussein Obama will be elected and give us 8 years of peace, tranquility and fairness to all Americans. The rich will finally pay there fair share and minorities will get the helping hand they have needed for too long. The meek shall inherit the earth as the Bible promised.
