America’s Trojan Horse: Public Education

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.

America's Trojan Horse: Pubic Education

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?

    I never really thought of it as a “trojan horse” before… I’ll have to mull over the analogy for a while, but right off it seems to fit.

    Absolutely agree! I’ve read several books and collections of documents on the subject, and humanism *is* the religion of public schools. They are NOT neutral. There is no such thing as neutral. “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.”

    Yes – I don’t think anyone really takes a hard look at why they are doing what they are doing — it’s just “the way it’s done” and you do it. Thinking through things is a lost art.

    Yes I do! I keep this quote on my blog at all times:

    Charles F. Potter, a leading humanist, wrote in the magazine “Humanist,” (1930). “Education is thus a most powerful ally of Humanism, and every American public school is a school of Humanism. What can the theistic Sunday schools, meeting for an hour a week and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five-day program of humanistic teaching?” Another leading humanist, John Dunphy, wrote in the Humanist Magazine (1983). “I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity. …The teacher must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit…. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new — the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism.”

    I think describing it like a Trojan Horse is an apt description. We don’t even think to question what the public education system is doing to our children until it is too late & we’ve lost the battle.

    Good reference. I’m a bit concerned because I’m now homeschooling my middle child and my youngest is still in P.S.-He’s in third grade and he seems to like the structure. I have to get him and my middle child evaluated for possible lds. Youngest is on autism scale with P.D.D. N.O.S. w/S.P.D. and my middle child is definately a visual learner poss AdHd, poss Dyslexia, my little bro has both and it travels accross the maternal line. They might be 2-e like me. So there’s a lot to put in place before next year. Dealing with the trjan horse but trying to not mess them up in the transitions.

    My favorite comment about public school is that “my school is great, and all the rest are terrible” When 85% of the people their schools are great and think everybody else’s is terrible is a mathematical impossibility.

    I think most of us are very unaware of the philosophy underpinning most of what informs public education. I think that philosophy is so pervasive and so accepted across the board in secular circles, it can’t help but pollute the minds of children who sit under it.

    I completely agree. It is a slow numbing death of our faith in public schools. I taught for 7+ years in Georgia and my husband’s entire family teach in Illinois and it is just renaming, polishing, prettifying the evils of humanism and spoon feeding to unsuspecting and trusting children. Their parents just sit by and let the govt raise those kids like Nazi Germany created Hitler Youth.
