Defeating The Diaprax
Mr. Dean Gotcher is the founder and director of the Institution For Authority Research. His background is in education and European history and philosophy. His extensive research in the area of education reform has given him exceptional insight into what education reform is all about, who is responsible for the changes, when the reforms really started, and most importantly, why our system of education is being restructured.
He is internationally known for his research, and is referenced as a source in many articles and books. He is a consultant to business managers, state legislators, school board members, school administrators, teachers, and Bible based ministers; as well as a sought after guest on radio talk shows.
He has coined the term "diaprax" and is the author of the booklet Dialectic and Praxis: Diaprax and the End of the Ages, explaining the Dialectic process and Praxis which is the foundation of and "justification" for Goals 2000, Outcome-Based Education, and School to Work. He also explains Total Quality Management, Consensus, the Delphi technique, group dynamics, cognitive dissonance, paradigm shift, and their roles in restructuring society.
Over the past five years he has held over 900 seminars and/or weekend conferences. He shares in his seminars that the main goal of the process and those promoting it is to destroy any overt position of authority, especially parental authority. As a Christian, he believes the ultimate authority is God and His Word. He shares what God has to say to us today regarding the subject of authority and educating our children.
Dean Gotcher's weekly broadcast on the Christian Media Network runs every Friday at 11 AM PST on Shortwave at 15.725. The hourly program can also be heard on the Internet at www.ChristianMediaNetwork.com.
