As Christianity and Christian principles are systematically expunged from the classroom, radicals like Bill Ayers fill the void with radical social justice and anti-Christian values.
He still considers himself an “anarchist” and “Marxist” and said concerning the struggle with “religious fundamentalism” of which “jihad” is “the most visible”, that “The religious fundamentalism of the Christians and Jews is equally troubling.”
Bill Ayers is now the most infamous radical of the 60s, but there is little said about his radical agenda and influence upon public education.
While speaking at World Education Forum, Ayers referred to his friend Luis Bonilla as a brilliant educator and inspiring fighter for justice for educational reforms under the leadership of President Chavez, and said, “We share the belief that education is the motor-force of revolution…I look forward to seeing how he and all of you continue to overcome the failings of capitalist education as you seek to create something truly new and deeply humane.”
The bombs he ignited in the 60s are minor compared to his potential influence through redical anti-Christian, anti-learning, anti-American, anti-capitalism, socially radical education plans for children.
Sol Stern, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, has written extensively on education. Two articles of particular note concern Bill Ayers. First “Obama’s Real Bill Ayers Problem” and secondly, “The Bomber as School Reformer.”
