The American public school system, once the envy of the world, is now a sinkhole of political correctness, ineptitude and violence, yet its administrators demand - and receive - far more funding per child than do higher performing private and religious schools.

In From Crayons to Condoms: The Ugly Truth About America’s Public Schools, you’ll experience today’s public schools as never before, through the voices of parents, students and dedicated teachers left stranded in the system, the same voices that school administrators are determined to stifle.

Lavishly armed with your tax dollars, government at every level encourages mass social experimentation on our kids - success optional. In From Crayons to Condoms, you’ll discover…

* The lesbian gym teacher who hands out a paper called “101 Ways To Do It Without Going All The Way” in every class.
* The “Inventive Spelling” curriculum which demands of parents that they “avoid giving in to our natural desire to correct the mistakes” because it’s “harmful to the children”
* The required courses in “death education” that actually encourage teen depression and suicide.
* The math classes in which students are told to write down how they “feel” about math problems…as opposed to learning fractions, algebra and multiplication tables.

Today’s public schools are not just rife with bizarre, inaccurate textbooks and failed teaching practices - they encourage classroom activities that produce dangerous, even deadly, results.

Can our schools be saved? Yes, say the authors, but only if parents are ready to fight for their children every step of the way. The stories in From Crayons to Condoms: The Ugly Truth About America’s Public Schools are sure to horrify and energize anyone concerned about today’s kids, and our nation’s future.
