Dr. Blumenfeld was born in New York City, educated there, and graduated from The City College of New York in 1950. The book publishing industry is where he spent his next ten years. He has taught children in private schools, as a substitute in public schools and as a private tutor. His experience in education and his veneration as a speaker have brought him to lecture in every state in the United States as well as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and England. He has also written for many publications for both online and print sources. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree by Bob Jones University in 1986.
His published works include(among others): N.E.A. Trojan Horse in American Education, Is Public Education Necessary?, Property in a Humane Economy, How to Tutor, Alpha-Phonics, The New Illiterates and How You Can Keep Your Child from Becoming One, and The Whole Language / OBE Fraud, Homeschooling: A Parents Guide to Teaching Children, Brian de Palma.
How To Tutor and Alpha Phonics focus on proper methods for teaching children basic school subjects. Dr. Blumenfeld's other works primarily focus on the failures of the public education establishment in America.
