Vying for Our Children: the ideological struggle for hearts and minds by Paul Henderson. ISBN 0473095807. Published by the Maxim Institute . Recommended retail price $17.95
Vying For Our Children takes a timely and critical look at New Zealand's school curricula and examines the very roots of the philosophies that underpin them. It shows how a number of ideologies compete to influence educational policy and curricular content, and clearly identifies the influence of each. Paul Henderson shows how traditional values have been largely swept aside in an unholy alliance between economic reductionism and neo-Marxism, and calls for a revised curriculum which panders less to transient fashions and social engineering.
Paul Henderson is a writer and researcher for Maxim Institute. He was born in the UK, educated at Ampleforth College and is a graduate of Aberdeen and Cambridge Universities. He has lived and taught in Africa, Europe and Asia. Paul is a New Zealand citizen and married with three daughters.

Awarded to Paul Henderson of The Seattle Times for reporting that proved the innocence of a man convicted of rape. Read more.
Washington State’s Wrongfully Convicted, 7 May 2013 [cached]
"These things just don't happen accidentally," Paul Henderson says, sorting through a box of legal files. "There's always an element of misconduct. The ex-journalist and private investigator stops to think about that, and puts down an old Titus case file. Rubbing his stubbly beard, Henderson turns and begins to pace across the inlaid deck of his boat-home, a 49-foot Grand Banks Alaskan tied up on Lake Union in Fremont.
Police, prosecutors-"They're actually able to sleep at night knowing they've convicted an innocent man," he says, voice rising to a bellow.
While awaiting sentencing, Titus contacted Henderson, then a reporter for The Seattle Times, claiming to be innocent of the crime, the sexual assault of a 17-year-old hitchhiker near Sea-Tac Airport.
Henderson was hooked by Titus' sincerity and the fact that police never explored any of his alibi details or interviewed his witnesses.
Henderson began looking for the kind of details he would spend the next three decades seeking in such cases-contrary evidence and testimony that police and prosecutors had missed or ignored, sometimes purposely. Within weeks, he learned that the victim's memory of her attacker was hazy, and that she'd been steered by police to identify Titus as the perpetrator. Among other conflicts, there were clear differences between the victim's description of the rapist's car and Titus' vehicle. Henderson also learned a detective had adjusted event times on his report to counter Titus' alibi: Running his own stopwatch checks, the reporter discovered it was impossible for Titus to have been at the crime scene at the time of the rape.
Henderson, a bar-crawling crime reporter who kept a six-pack in his locker at the police press room where he sometimes slept under a pile of newspapers, won the Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting.
The jury does that mistakenly much too often, Henderson has since discovered. He quit the Times a month after Titus' death and became a highly sought private investigator with a low boiling point for injustice. Today, at 74 with two marriages and two careers behind him, the teetotaling PI is semi-retired after three decades of freeing wrongly convicted felons-at least 23 by his count-across the U.S. and Canada.
"In almost every case I worked on, those convictions could have been avoided," Henderson says in the gruff baritone that has persuaded a legion of confident eyewitnesses to change their tunes when confronted by the findings of his investigations. "There was a distinct absence of fair play."
Unfortunately, there's a demand for last-resort investigators like him, scouring the countryside for long-gone witnesses or accusers, knocking on the doors of old hotels in St. Louis, wandering through trailer courts outside Dallas, chasing down dead leads in a Spokane flophouse. Since 1985, Henderson has worked for New Jersey-based nonprofit Centurion Ministries, which receives 1,500 letters each year from U.S. prisoners claiming to have been falsely convicted. In three decades, the organization has freed 50 wrongly imprisoned men and women.
Henderson's last case before he retired from full-time sleuthing last year took him to 14 states. "I hate flying," he says. But he loves a mystery. He and Centurion's mission is to dig for new evidence in dust-covered case files. The sleuthing almost always requires shoe leather to round up hidden or undiscovered facts-a strategy different from that of another famed exoneration group, the New York-based Innocence Project, which focuses on retesting crime-scene DNA and has helped reverse more than 300 convictions nationally. A local arm of the project, Innocence Project Northwest, operates out of the University of Washington and has chalked up eight notable reversals.
Courts may overwhelmingly grind out fair verdicts, Henderson says, but some of those decisions are flawed or flat-out wrong, sending the legally not guilty and the plainly innocent to jail or prison.

Attorney Camiel called in the hound, Paul Henderson.
"Spencer's was a dig-up-whatever-you-can case," says Henderson.
For starters, Henderson learned medical reports existed, hidden from Spencer's defense, that showed no indications any of the children had ever been sexually abused. Clark County Det.
Henderson, suspicious about the night Spencer's second wife Shirley brought her son to his motel room, wondered if that was a setup.
Henderson was there to greet him, took him to a bank to cash his small prison-labor check, bought him a steak, and dropped him off at a motel on Aurora Avenue in Seattle. The next morning, Spencer recalls, he got up early, went out into the free world, and began to walk until he was exhausted.
As a registered sex offender, he still could not join his wife in California, though she quickly arrived to greet him, returning regularly as they continued their long-distance relationship.
Inside his Lake Union boat home, Paul Henderson is thumbing through more files-he has dozens of boxes and thousands of pages of documents stored in a closet and a nearby locker. "Wrongful confessions are one of the biggest problems in these cases, and the most difficult to overturn," he says, recalling Barry Beach of Montana. He was 21, still living with his parents, when he was arrested in 1983 for buying beer for a minor, a misdemeanor. He wound up doing 28 years in prison for confessing to a murder-the slaying of a teen girl-he did not commit, as Henderson's investigation helped prove. The case was one of many worked on by Henderson that were featured on national TV magazine shows, including 60 Minutes and 20/20. "He was put away by cops who talked him into it," says Henderson.
But wrongful convictions will continue, Henderson says, as long as police and prosecutors are not punished for them. "They should be held criminally responsible, in my view," he says.
McCloskey assigned staff investigator ... [cached]
McCloskey assigned staff investigator Paul Henderson to look into the Beach case.
Henderson is a former investigative reporter for the Seattle Times who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1982 for a series of articles that vindicated a man who had been falsely convicted. Three years later, he retired from journalism and became a full-time private investigator. McCloskey hired Henderson as a full-time staff investigator in 1996 after he had worked on several cases for Centurion Ministries.
In the ensuing years after Centurion had taken Beach on, Henderson and Hepburn made dozens of trips to Poplar, where they interviewed witnesses, collected statements and began piecing together the evidence that eventually led a judge to grant Beach a new trial.
"There nothing to compare to the feeling of the first release, but the sense of jubilation and exhilaration never wears off," Henderson said. "It was another extraordinary, memorable courtroom experience.
"I think Barry Beach suffered from the injustice that befell him as much as anybody we've represented through the years," Henderson said.
