Charlotte Iserbyt: The Deliberate Dumbing Down Of The World

Charlotte Iserbyt served as Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education, during the first Reagan Administration.

Ever since, she's been exposing how educational systems throughout the world have been, gradually and by design, homogenized under UNESCO coordination. The purpose has always been to create a dumbed down, easily manageable, global population. That population would easily be transitioned into being mere human resources, under a new form of regime: a world governance system, run on an authoritarian type system -- a global slave plantation --, for the benefit of the dominant global hierarchy of international oligarchs.

Her book, "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America" is a brilliantly documented exposé on this subject, comprising hundreds of original documents and official statements right from the horse's mouth: the records of big banking foundations, governments and UNESCO departments -- the institutions that created the blueprint for the worldwide education system that is now set in place, all across the world.

California Camarillo High School Students Suspended For Chanting USA at Basketball Game

"Four Camarillo high school, CA. students claimed they were suspended for wearing patriotic bandanas and chanting "USA! USA!" during a school basketball game. It happened last week at a game between rivals Camarillo High School and Rio Mesa High School in Ventura County, the Ventura County Star reported. The Rio Mesa students said a Camarillo associate principal warned spectators in the stands not to curse or make racial comments, then saw their bandanas and told them to either remove them or leave.

The four students went outside, then ran back in at halftime wearing the bandanas and leading a chant of "USA! USA!" according to the newspaper. That's when they were escorted out and said they were handed five-day suspensions, punishments that were later lifted." MrCensorMe1 (2/18/13)

Students Told to Stop ‘USA!’ Chant, Take Off American Flag Bandanas
http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/340639/students-told-stop-usa-chant-take-american-flag-bandanas-andrew-johnson

Four California high-school students were reportedly suspended for chanting “U.S.A! U.S.A!” and wearing American flag bandanas during a basketball game. While their punishment has since been rescinded, school administrators said “the incident is far from over.”

Oxnard Union School District superintendent Gabe Soumakian told Fox News Radio that “we need to pursue this further” and “work with teachers and students and the community about the concept of cultural proficiency.” Soumakian and Camarillo High School principal Glenn Lipman felt that the students’ actions might have had racist undertones since the schools have large Hispanic student populations.

“We wanted to make sure [their actions weren't] racially motivated, and I told the kids I just want to be sensitive to the feelings of everybody,” Lipman said. “If we’re doing it for patriotism, that’s fine. But if we’re doing it for something else that’s racially motivated, I’m not going to allow that.”

But the students deny any racial element to their chants. “We’ve done it always,” one student said. “It’s something we do. It’s the same group of friends. We’re all very patriotic.” The four students gained support from their peers: More than 100 students gathered by the school’s flagpole the following morning to protest in patriotic clothing."  Andrew Johnson/NationalReview.com (2/13/13)

7-year-old Boy Suspended For Shaping Pastry Into Gun

"A 7-year-old Maryland boy was suspended from school for two days for shaping a breakfast pastry into what his teacher thought looked like a gun, according to his father.

FoxBaltimore.com reports that Josh Welch, a second-grader at Park Elementary School in Baltimore, was eating a strawberry tart when he decided to shape it into a mountain.

"All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain but, it didn't look like a mountain really and it turned out to be a gun [kind of]," Josh told the station." FullWiFi (3/2/13)

Had this young man been in possession of chocolate chip morsels, not only would he have had a weapon, he would have had the ammunition to use it.

Studies show that 7-year old boys who shape pastry into guns are 3 times more likely to vote Republican and to join the NRA.

Indoctrinate U - Our Education/Their Politics

Indoctrinate U, Evan Coyne Maloney's much anticipated documentary exposing the anti-intellectual, intolerant culture of our nation's campuses, is finally here. Early versions of the film won prizes and international critical acclaim. Maloney has been called "a Michael Moore, only with integrity." And the film has been dubbed "a call to action" that will "shock the conscience of Americans in the best sense, through exposure to truth and logic." Now, just in time for graduation, the film America needs to see has arrived.

Released in Spring, 2007, Indoctrinate U is already creating a major buzz. The film was featured on Hannityís America Sunday, March 18, 2007.

Advance media coverage of Indoctrinate U and its short film predecessor Brainwashing, has been enormously positive and encouraging.

London's Daily Telegraph has called the film "as slick and incisive as anything by Michael Moore," and predicts that it "will lay bare the hypocrisy of what he calls the most self-righteous people in America - and possibly cost them millions of dollars."

The New York Sun calls Maloney the "conservative answer to Michael Moore," and observes that the film is expected "to emerge as a breakout theatrical hit."

The Chronicle of Higher Education notes that Maloney's movie has a powerful "immediacy" to it, allowing us to "see the people who feel they have been discriminated against and the hurt on their faces as they tell their stories."

And a critic writing for Hollywood's Ain't It Cool News pronounced the film to be "one of the most "horrifying and hysterical documentaries I have ever seen."

Long awaited and incredibly timely, Indoctrinate U is the documentary event of the year. Every parent, student, and taxpayer in America should see this film. The future of our higher education system depends on it.

The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America

Why Johnny Can't Tell Right From Wrong

"In what may be the most important and most controversial book about public education in America in decades, William Kilpatrick argues that our schools are failing to provide the moral education they once did. America today suffers from unprecedented rates of teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, suicide, and violence (an estimated 525,000 attacks, shakedowns, and robberies occur in public high schools each month). School programs intended to deal with these social problems have largely failed. According to Professor Kilpatrick, one of the principal reasons for this failure is that our schools have abandoned the moral teaching they used to provide. Traditionally, our schools used literature, history, and other means to teach such values as honesty, respect, and moral courage. But beginning in the 1960s and 1970s, most schools switched from character education to an untested model generally known as "decision-making." In place of the stories and songs that transmitted values to generations of schoolchildren, a radical new educational theory substituted teaching methods that foster the notion that any values system is acceptable so long as it is self-discovered and "feels right." The best way to encourage moral growth, says Kilpatrick, is to return to the proven model of character education, with its emphasis on good example and good habits of behavior. Kilpatrick explains why this approach works, and he gives examples of school systems that have switched to character education with impressive results. Finally, Professor Kilpatrick explains what parents can do to encourage character formation in their own children. Among other things, he recommends that parents read to their children and provide them with good books that transmit moral values. He includes an annotated guide to over 100 books for children and young adults." -- GoodReads.com

In the book “Why Johnny Can’t Tell Right from Wrong,” William Kilpatrick compares what classroom teachers identified as the greatest threats to education in 1940 with what they identified as the greatest threats in the early 1990s:
• The No. 1 concern in 1940 was talking out of turn. In the early 1990s, it was drug abuse.
• The No. 2 concern in 1940 was chewing gum in class. In the early 1990s, it was alcohol abuse.
• The No. 3 concern in 1940 was making noise. In the early 1990s, it was teen pregnancy.
• The No. 4 concern in 1940 was running in the halls. In the early 1990s, it was suicide.
• The No. 5 concern in 1940 was getting out of line. In the early 1990s, it was rape.
• The No. 6 concern in 1940 was wearing improper clothing. In the early 1990s, it was robbery.
• The No. 7 concern in 1940 was not putting paper in the wastebasket. In the early 1990s, it was assault.
