Publisher's Summary

#1 best-selling author and popular radio and television host Glenn Beck considers the hot-button issue of education in the US, exposing the weaknesses of the Common Core school curriculum and examining why liberal solutions fail.
As he did with the issue of gun control in his thoughtful and succinct #1 bestseller Control, Glenn Beck uncovers the politically motivated truth behind the continual failures of the American educational system and offers real, tangible solutions for change. The debate over education who decides what and how our children learn as they prepare for their futures may be centuries old, but with issues like: Common Core, homeschooling, charter schools, and teachers' unions affecting families nationwide, the debates rage hotter than ever.
Going point by point with this well-reasoned, fact-based analysis, Glenn Beck proves that it's not more money our schools need it's a complete refocusing of priorities and a total restructuring of the relationship between local schools and our federal government. For the sake of our children's schooling today and for their successes tomorrow, you must listen to Controlling Education to fight for a system that offers nothing less than the world's highest-quality education.
An essential guide for anyone concerned about the precarious state of schools in our country today, Controlling Education is for education what #1 New York Times best seller Control was for gun rights.

A Must-Read: Extremely Informative!

The problems with the broken US educational system & Common Core run much deeper than I had realized. This book does a wonderful job of spelling it all out and showing the serious potential dangers of an entrenched system that continues to erode our Constitution's integrity and our civil rights as independent individuals. A must-read for parents and anyone who values the few freedoms Americans are still allowed to exercise!
