By Judy Aron

At a recent awards dinner, held in Stamford, CT, and attended by 230 educators, corporate executives and civic figures, people were stunned when the recipient of an award from the Childcare Learning Centers of Stamford, paraphrased Adolf Hitler.

Yes, you heard me right. And you know what? There is a war going on over our children here in America.


People were stunned when the recipient of an award from the Childcare Learning Centers of Stamford, paraphrased Adolf Hitler.

Developer Robert D. Scinto, chairman of the William Pitt Foundation, said “Give me a child when he’s 7 and he’s mine forever“, in his attempt to underscore the need for early childhood education.

To add to the outrageous nature of this comment Scinto later said, “I don’t know why anyone was offended…What I wanted to say is we should spend this kind of time and money with children. No one should have been offended.”

No one should be offended? This goes to show how bone-headed and thoroughly intentioned these supporters of early childhood education can be. That proclamation was just as scary as the first! It just goes to prove and validate that there is, and has been, a fight between so-called “educators” and the family. Early Childhood Education and its government funded agencies (like Childcare Learning Centers of Stamford) aim to take your child’s mind, and now it is apparent that these educators and their supporters feel that the earlier the better. In my opinion, Early Childhood Education encourages the abrogation of parenthood. It allows others, along with the state’s blessing, to raise the majority of our children from babyhood on up. By intruding into the child’s life and development, they can also intrude into the parent’s home and its management.

Hitler actually said,

“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future”, and he also wrote, “Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction.”

Hitler’s strategy included controlling people at young ages as it was to him the key to continuing their subjugation as they grew older. Hitler also said,

“Let me control the textbooks and I will control the state. The state will take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing. Your child belongs to us already….what are you?”

The reach of government school is now steadfastly expanding into Pre-K. The desire is to have all 3 and 4 year olds attend public school, just like in European countries following the UNESCO agenda. Billions in tax dollars have already been used for pre-school programs. No longer are government educators content to take our children at age 5 in the name of “compulsory education”. We have even heard comments from Progressive legislators in Connecticut who proclaim,” You are not serving your child properly if you are waiting until age 5 to formally educate your child”. Some even claim that if you don’t put your child in pre-school they may turn out to be criminals! They will even tell you that government funded Pre-K is a good investment for our country because “the kids make better citizens”. They produce reams of ridiculous studies, charts and brain scans, and parents, especially low income and minority parents, are unfortunately being convinced that they are unable to raise their own children without the government’s “experts”.

Government taxes everyone so much, and has created such an intensely consumer driven economy, that both parents must now work. Didn’t they do this in Communist countries? You know, take away the babies so parents can work for the state? They called it free public education from nursery to university, and the government’s agenda by and large worked to weaken the importance of the family.

Initially after the revolution, divorces required no court proceedings, abortions were legalized, women were encouraged to take jobs outside the home, and communist nurseries were set up to care for children while their mothers worked. (Civilization Past & Present, pg 830).

Pre-K education in America is clearly a huge power grab as well as a jobs program. The foray into Pre-K not only swells the numbers of education union employees, but it also creates more opportunity to create “credentialed” preschool educators (and the programs to create them) who stand to take more money from taxpayers. Early childhood education masquerades as a way to close a so-called achievement gap but more significantly it also removes children from the home at an earlier age. It is a way to further minimize the importance of the parent and the family and make the pre-school and government school teachers the primary focus in a child’s life. This is something that has not been a good thing for babies at all. It creates stress and confusion for the child. Kids end up calling teacher, “Mommy” and not knowing who it is they should listen to when conflicting rules are presented.

There was this in America in the 70’s:

“Every child in America entering school at the age of five 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 teachers to make all these sick children well  by creating the international child of the future.” – Harvard psychiatrist Chester M. Pierce, speaking as an expert in public education at the 1973 International Education Seminar

Thankfully, there ARE people who understand what is happening.
This from the article, War on Toddlers:

Universal preschool will provide job security for teachers and education administrators and provide lucrative contracts for specialty interest groups such as curriculum providers, transportation providers, food service providers, construction companies that build schools, maintenance and custodial services, school psychologists, and drug companies. Drug companies? Yes! Preschoolers will be tested, and funding of preschools will be based on test results. What happens when a kid doesn’t test well? A small child’s inability to focus could be diagnosed as ADD. What will be the solution – Ritalin for 3-year-olds?

Now our country is facing national curriculum standards. We’d do well to remember “Under the Nazis, schools were a primary target for control and their administration was placed in the hands of the party faithful. By 1938, the German school system was brought under the total control of the central government and removed from the jurisdiction of the individual states or Lander (Huebner, 1962).

We surely do not need other people, or the government to raise our children. Thank heaven we can still homeschool our children. And this is why it is so fundamentally necessary to make sure that we can continue to do so, unfettered, unburdened, and unregulated by those who so very very much want your child’s mind.

  1. Egads…my children are home…I fear for my grandchildren and their children and so on. Will this craziness never stop?

    The state now controls the textbooks. But not in our home. In fact, I don't even purchase books about history/sociology/and the like printed prior to the 1950s. Maybe I should make that earlier.

    Thanks Linda.

    Have a great week,

    To be fair, Judy, you might want to credit Scinto's quote to its much older roots. "Give me a child until he is seven and I will give you the man" is a Jesuit motto, alleged to be attributed to Francis Xavier, the co-founder of the Jesuit Order. The implication is that the best opportunity to indoctrinate a person in a lifetime of belief and devotion to religious dogma is when they are young.

    Attributing the motto, even paraphrased, to Hitler but not to Xavier is misleading. Personally, I'd be far more interested in exploring Jesuit and other well-reasoned (that would not include Hitler's) arguments for and against this the potential risks of government's "compelling interest" in children being educated at a young age. I think that is the underlying point you are making.

    Thanks Linda and Judy for creating a forum for discussion.

    Doesn't matter who said it. (I heard Stalin had the same sentiments, so what?)

    Parents should say (and believe) "I will raise and educate my children so that they will be able to wisely contribute to a civil and free society. I will abdicate my responsability to neither institution nor government no matterthe age of my offspring."

    The degree in which parents "give over" their children — whether to Jesuits, Nazis or State Schools — will be in direct proportion to the degree in which that society will accept tyranny and the loss of personal liberty.

    This truism makes homeschoolers an enemy of the state. (I welcome a discussion that attempts to prove me wrong.)
