On these pages is a call to action for teachers who have been shackled by the self-serving motives of agenda driven politicians. Here we present a new innovative process designed to prepare children to be productive members of their community. Students are empowered to take charge of their educational lives where thinking is valued above obedience, and their parents are respected as full partners in the process. The greatest challenge to educators in this decade is to prepare children to rise above the confirmation bias and embrace critical thinking. In this day of continuous propaganda from many directions, everything requires in depth thinking, research and processing. Change won't come from the top! The time has come to go underground to subvert the system from the bottom up. We infuse creative ideas while providing a pattern for systemic change that empowers teachers allowing them to take back their profession. Teachers are the saviors who are in the position to expand children's minds to the stars and beyond, giving them hope that they will make the world a better place. It is time to take a risk for children by subverting the system with the goal of true, whole child education.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Cap Lee does more than challenge teachers to "get some guts." He devises a "secret curriculum" and a "clandestine system" for beating back "Agenda Driven Politicians" and empowering the "Agenda of Children". -- John Thompson, historian, retired teacher
Who has the guts to stand up? Who has the map to navigate bureaucracy and politics of the day? Who had the fortitude to withstand the misconceptions in and about public-school education? Who had the insight to construct- to reconfigure a failed system one school at a time? A cadre of educators led by Eldon "Cap" Lee. This book, based on the Milwaukee Village School, is at it's core of understanding that students learn best by doing. Students demonstrate learning in a portfolio that is developed over time and with them. -- LaShawn Roscoe Scott, teacher, Park Forest IL, Former teacher Milwaukee Village School
Eldon "Cap" Lee has addressed educational reform as a process that requires all of us to understand that parents, students, teachers, communities are the change makers. Teaching critical thinking produces learners who will creatively solve problems. Allowing students to challenge themselves and question everything is the most natural learning experience when not stagnated by old methodologies. -- Catherine Spivey, MEd, former teacher, Milwaukee Village School
After reading this work, I have been applying it in my pedagogical labor here, in Barranquilla, Colombia. I have observed that the results are excellent. The children don't have to be qualified with quantitative methods of the traditionalist education, because some children are slow, others fast and others are rebels. I believe that this book is based on the understanding of the human being and constitutes a didactic means that renovates pedagogical thinking. -- Seno Luz Estela Narvaez, CEO PROSEFAM Foundation and School, Barranquilla Colombia
Music is a way to experience and express life in all its many facets. As a songwriter and musician, I feel privileged and gratified to be able to bring joy into people's lives with my work. I can make them laugh, I can make them cry and sometimes, I can make them think. This book integrates the Arts, essential to learning. -- Cal Adams Singer, songwriter, Pampano Beach FL
This book evokes a feeling of HOPE, the kind that exhausted teachers need when they feel their efforts are sending them downstream. -- Ranjit Singh, teacher, Wisconsin Technical High School
