America is Troy; Our Public Education System is the Trojan Horse.
Michael J. Metarko holds a degree in commerce and engineering from Drexel University, a certificate in elementary education from Moravian College, and a master’s degree in educational leadership from Wilkes University. Heeding God’s conviction, Mr. Metarko resigned his position in 2010 after working for 14 years in public education, the last five of which were as an elementary school principal.
In Chapter One, Metarko explains:
Over the past few years, I have been inspecting the foundations of the public education system. Research, reading, and observation
have proven to me that the foundations of the system are broken. It is crumbling away under my feet, our children’s feet, the family’s feet, the feet of our cities and our nation, under the feet of future generations.
Our education system is such a part of us and of society that we no longer even think to question it. We accept it, work within its boundaries, polish it to look better, and rename it to sound better. Just as the people of Troy welcomed that horse, we have naïvely
welcomed public education into our cities and homes without discernment, willingly accepting the words of “leaders” of the system just as the Trojans unwisely took the Greek captive at his word without questioning if it were a trap, a setup.
In opening up that Trojan horse, I was stunned and appalled. I not only realized what the horse was but saw the deceivers’ plans. In a phrase, what I found was indoctrination in an anti-Christian worldview called humanism. My eyes having been opened wide, I realize that we are in a war for the truth, the souls of our children, and the future of our country. The hardest thing for me to accept is that I have been the Trojan soldier listening to the Greek captive and accepting his description of the horse as a gift to society! My sweat, my energies, were tearing down the wall of my city and wheeling this horse inside. By not questioning and inspecting public education deeply enough, I put my family and America’s children right into the archenemy’s hands.
Do see public education in the same way? As America’s Trojan horse?
