Why is America experiencing a decline in literacy? Why are so many American children afflicted with learning disabilities? Why are our schools promoting Ritalin and sex and drug education, but vigorously opposing intensive phonics and rote memorization of arithmetic facts?
Dr. Samuel Blumenfeld has written nine books about public education in America over the past 35 years answering these and other baffling questions. Of his best-selling exposé of the National Education Association, N.E.A. Trojan Horse in American Education, which has become a classic in critical educational literature, former U.S. Senator Steve Symms of Idaho said: “Every so often a book is written that can change the thinking of a nation. This book is one of them.” How to Tutor and Alpha-Phonics are being used by thousands of parents and homeschoolers to teach their children the 3R’s in the traditional manner.
Dr. Blumenfeld’s writings have appeared in many publications, and he has lectured and held seminars in all fifty states and Canada, England, Australia and New Zealand. He has taught in both public and private schools, including one for children with learning and behavioral problems.
