Spiritually Unsafe

In many places it is literally not safe physically for youngsters to go to school. And in many schools - and it's becoming almost generally true - it is spiritually unsafe to attend public schools. Look back over the history of education to the turn of the century and the beginning of the educational philosophies, pragmatism and humanism were the early ones, and they branched out into a number of other philosophies which have led us now into a circumstance where our schools are producing the problems that we face. (Charge to the David O. McKay School of Education at BYU, October 9, 1996)
I wonder how President McKay would feel about Common Core which teaches Multicultalism, Social Justice, Homosexuality, Overpopulation, the evironment is diety, the Constitution is an outdated document, the Founders were just evil slave holders and personal liberty is subversive WHILE taking values based classic literature from the curriculum and dumbing math down by two full grades?  #stopcommoncore
