Product description

The influence of John Dewey's undeniably pervasive ideas on the course of American education during the last half-century has been celebrated in some quarters and decried in others. But Dewey's writings themselves have not often been analyzed in a sustained way. In John Dewey and the Decline of American Education, Hank Edmondson takes up that task. He begins with an account of the startling authority with which Dewey's fundamental principles have been-and continue to be-received within the U.S. educational establishment. Edmondson then shows how revolutionary these principles are in light of the classical and Christian traditions. Finally, he persuasively demonstrates that Dewey has had an insidious effect on American democracy through the baneful impact his core ideas have had in our nation's classrooms. Few people are pleased with the performance of our public schools. Eschewing polemic in favor of understanding, Edmondson's study of the "patron saint" of those schools sheds much-needed light on both the ideas that bear much responsibility for their decline and the alternative principles that could spur their recovery.
What They're Saying...

"Edmondson’s critique of Dewey is useful, clear, and brief. He rightly sees Rousseau’s primitivism as a major influence, and he rightly distinguishes Dewey from Jefferson, whose reputation and lineage Dewey was eager to claim as his own."
M.D. Aeschliman, The National Review

"A distinguished Southern scholar who has written widely on ethics and literature, including on Flannery O'Connor and J.R.R. Tolkien, Edmondson has bravely trekked through the desert wastes of forty volumes of what must be the most muddled prose to ever attain to such demonic power over a culture. Keeping his bearings by the polestars of Plato, Aristotle, Newman, Chesterton, and others who understand genuine education as Edmondson tracks the beast of educationism to its ultimate lair, where lie the scattered bones of countless students devoured by relativism and nihilism."
New Oxford Review

"Edmondson excels in demonstrating that the problem with public education in this country is not just a matter of bad policy (although there is certainly plenty of that going on); it goes much deeper. It is a matter of faulty philosophy...Edmondson lays out many more detailed suggestions, making this book not only informative but also a very capable handbook for moving educational reform in the right direction."

"John Dewey believed that education was the key to social change. Yet as Henry T. Edmondson effectively shows in his new book, Dewey could not defy the inherent contradiction of his own philosophy, which has left an indelible mark on American education."
Claremont Review of Books

"While all of his suggestions are meritorious, Edmondson's greatest contribution toward school...

Product description

John Edmondson is a middle school teacher and newspaper columnist in southern New Hampshire. "I Won't Walk a Mile in Another Man's Pants..." is a collection of John's favorite columns from his 15 years at the Derry News. Often humorous and always opinionated, John offers his take on subjects as diverse as spending a night in an Irish castle to unleashing a couple of sixth-graders on a worn-out classroom couch. With wit and wisdom, John breathes life into the mundane occurrences that all readers can identify with.

Pennington Flash: The Urban Solace

Tawny Pipit, Whiskered Tern, Blue-winged Teal, Great Reed Warbler, American Black Tern, Canvasback & Black-faced Bunting…surly you must of got it with the last two birds . Pennington Flash. In Greater Manchester you can find yourself a whole load of top quality birding sites: Elton Reservoir, Sale Water Park, Salford Docks, Audenshaw Reservoir and of course the one and only and most renowned birding site of all, Pennington Flash... With its 170 acre lake made at the dawn of the 20th centaury to fill in a coal mine, it is now nationally renowned for its sheer array of birdlife as well as clearly demonstrating that mankind and the natural world can co-exist: Sailing, Golf,... You might have guessed that with such a large site that has a wide array of habitats and is constantly under watch that it would of had a few surprises here and there, well your right: Long-tailed Duck, Nightingale, Sabine’s Gull, the UK’s first... Despite Penny being the site it is I’ve only had the pleasure of making a handful of visits and after almost a year I thought it was about time I made the effort to get up. Last October I headed up for a weekend to the RSPB’s Saltholme reserve in... Besides seeing masses of waterfowl along with a rather nice Black-necked Grebe, I also met a young birder called Tom Wright from South Wales. It was after seeing him there that I actually realised that I had met Tom just 3 years before at RSPB Conwy for the same event, it was also at Conwy that met my longest birding bud Joel Tragen. Due to Tom living all the way down in Gwent we haven’t been able to meet up since October for a days birding together, but as he was coming north to Manchester for a weekend to watch the British Cycling Championships and had a day free, well... Unlike Tom who would have the luxury of getting up at 9ish to reach Pennington for our planned meet up at 10am, for me and Luke to get there for first light in order to attempt to see the 1st winter Glaucous Gull which had been present for 2 days... But we somehow not just woke up but shot up out of beds, met at Birkenhead Bus station for 6:50am before getting over to Liverpool before our train to Newton-Le-Willows and then yet another bus and a 10 minute walk till we finally arrived at... but when we entered the hide to find patcher John Tymon he delivered us the bad news that the bird hadn’t been seen whats so ever today. Besides the beautiful Goldeneye which was a lifer for Luke and somewhat a scarcity round our neck of the woods on little old Wirral, there was still plenty of other birds about with a possible 1st winter Yellow-legged Gull, Shoveler, Goosander... After consulting the iPhone to see that we still a good half hour to explore Penny before Tommy arrived, the pair of us made a brief trip over to the Pegney’s Hide to see what was about over there at the feeders. There was your usual birds about: Teal, Tufted Duck, Mallard, Mute Swan, Dunnock, Robin & Bullfinch etc My favourite thing about Penny is that unlike most places you can get unbelievable views of virtually all of the species there, at one point...

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Boeing B-29 Superfortress "Enola Gay": Boeing's B-29 Superfortress was the most sophisticated propeller-driven bomber of World War II and the first bomber to house its crew in pressurized compartments. Although designed to fight in the European theater, the B-29 found its niche on the other side of the globe. In the Pacific, B-29s delivered a variety of aerial weapons: conventional bombs, incendiary bombs, mines, and two nuclear weapons. On August 6, 1945, this Martin-built B-29-45-MO dropped the first atomic weapon used in combat on Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, Bockscar (on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum near Dayton, Ohio) dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Enola Gay flew as the advance weather reconnaissance aircraft that day. A third B-29, The Great Artiste, flew as an observation aircraft on both missions. Transferred from the United States Air Force. Manufacturer: Boeing Aircraft...

See more photos of this, and the Wikipedia article. Details, quoting from Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum: Steven F. Udvar-Hazy | Nakajima J1N1-S Gekko (Moonlight) IRVING: Originally designed as a three-seat, daylight escort fighter plane by the Nakajima Aeroplane Company, Ltd., and flown in 1941, the IRVING was modified as a night fighter in May of 1943 and shot down two American B-17 bombers to prove its capability. The Gekko (meaning moonlight) was redesigned to hold only two crewmen so that an upward firing gun could be mounted where the observer once sat. Nearly five hundred J1N1 aircraft, including prototypes, escort, reconnaissance, and night fighters were built during World War II. A sizeable number were also used as Kamikaze aircraft in the Pacific. The few that survived the war were scrapped by the Allies. This J1N1 is the last remaining in the world. It was transported from Japan to the U.S. where it was flight tested by the U.S. Army Air Forces in 1946. The...
