Award Winning Author B. K. Eakman’s Latest Book “Walking Targets How Our Psychologized Classrooms Are Producing a Nation of Sitting Ducks” Hits the Mark

Kensington, MD, November 07, 2007 --( B. K. Eakman’s soon-to-be-released latest exposé of our educational system “Walking Targets: How Our Psychologized Classrooms Are Producing a Nation of Sitting Ducks” is a wake-up call for parents and educators alike. With over 40 articles covering Education, Family, Behavioral Science, Mental Health, Privacy, Political Correctness and Manipulation of Public Opinion the reader will come to see how educators and provocateurs are driving a wedge between parents and their children.

“Walking Targets” points to an agenda that begins with government-controlled childrearing and force-feeds young people a pseudo-education under the cover of “mental health,” “safety,” “jobs,” and something called “lifelong learning.”

“The hook to keep kids in school is lax dress codes, sports and entertainment even as the dropout rate continues to soar,” answered Ms. Eakman in explaining the book.

She went on to say, “I take issue with teaching methodologies whose primary purpose is to target the emotions rather than challenge the intellect. Teachers do not exist to strip away a parent’s belief system from children in their classrooms, and to then transmit “new” values. Today parents are waking up to see children who are nothing like them – people they don’t know and who don’t even share what few values they have left.”

Charles M. Richardson, Founder & Chairman of the Literacy Council in Long Island , NY states “Walking Targets is a devastating indictment of the pernicious partners intentionally sabotaging our education system. She correctly observes that one of the most critical casualties has been our diminished communication skills, compromising the nation’s ability to solve all its other problems.”

In her review of “Walking Targets” Arizona State Senator Karen S. Johnson writes, “Unlike most of the psychobabble that passes for advice to parents, this book hones in on the real problems with education today. No parent should enter the public school system before arming themselves with “Walking Targets” first. This book is the best parent guidebook there is on navigating the public school system.”

This 300 page compilation of her published articles, capitalizes on the success of her three previously published books: Cloning of the American Mind: Eradicating Morality through Education, Educating for the New World Order, Microchipped: How the Education Establishment Took Us Beyond Big Brother and her workbook How to Counter Group Manipulation Tactics. Release date for Walking Targets is mid-November and is priced at $24.95.
