Summary
Early in the twentieth century, Progressives quietly transformed America's schools. A hundred years later, they've succeeded beyond their wildest hopes. Behind a smokescreen of "preparing students for the new industrial economy," early Progressives had political control in mind. America's original schools didn't just make kids memorize facts or learn skills; they taught them to think freely and arrive at wisdom. They assigned the classics, inspired love of God and country, and raised future citizens who changed the world forever. Today, after sixteen thousand hours of K-12 indoctrination, our kids come out of government schools hating America. They roll their eyes at religion and disdain our history. We spend more money on education than ever, but kids can barely read and write -- let alone reason with discernment. Western culture is on the ropes. Kids are bored and aimless, flailing for purpose in a system that says racial and gender identity are everything. Battle for the American Mind is the untold story of the progressive plan to neutralize the basis of our Republic -- by removing the one ingredient that had sustained Western civilization for thousands of years. Pete Hegseth and David Goodwin explain why, no matter what political skirmishes Conservatives win, Progressives are winning the war -- and controlling the "supply lines" of future citizens. Reversing this reality will require parents to radically reorient their children's education; even most homeschooling and Christian schooling are infused with progressive assumptions. We need to recover a lost philosophy of education -- grounded in virtue and excellence -- that can arm future generations to fight for freedom. It's called classical Christian education. Never heard of it? You're not alone. Battle for the American mind is more than a book; it's a field guide for remaking schools in the United States. We've ceded our kids' minds to the Left for far too long. This book gives patriotic parents the ammunition to join an insurgency that gives America a fighting chance. --
