First in a series of articles. Who are some of the humanist, AntiAmerican, Socialist, Marxist and Prussian influencers in Public Education over the decades? In the coming weeks, I will highlight those that have shaped public education, and those currently in power, in an effort to expose why youth today are not being educated but instead indoctrinated. This article will highlight Chester Middlebrook Pierce.
“Every child in American entering school at the age of 5 is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It’s up to you as teacher to make all these sick children well – by creating the international child of the future”. -Chester Middlebrook Pierce
Did you catch this? “… It’s up to you as teacher to make all these sick children well – by creating the international child of the future”.
Chester Middlebrook Pierce was Emeritus Professor of Education and Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He was the first African-American full professor at Massachusetts General Hospital, and was past-president of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and the American Orthopsychiatric Association. He was a fellow in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
From 2001-2004 he was on the Carter Center Mental Health Task force and a founding president of the Black Psychiatrists of America. During that time he was also the National Chairperson of the Child Development Associate Consortium. He spent much of his career as a Senior Psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital, and worked as a psychiatrist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for 25 years.
Let me repeat: While at Harvard he was quoted saying, “Every child in American entering school at the age of 5 is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It’s up to you as teacher to make all these sick children well – by creating the international child of the future”.
