Gaining Access To and Then Guiding Each Student’s Subjective Perception of Reality to Change the Here and Now

Let’s pre­tend for a moment that we are all in the same room mulling over why K-12 edu­ca­tion is shut­ting down what works and expand­ing every­thing that has ever been con­tro­ver­sial or even tragic. We could get out a White Board and pre­tend to be detec­tive Kate Beck­ett on the TV show Cas­tle and cre­ate columns of what con­cerns and mys­ti­fies us. Con­crete, Down to Earth, Tan­gi­ble Con­cerns. Then later as I am research­ing and foot­note hop­ping, I read the title of a 1966 book called The Social Con­struc­tion of Real­ity. I remem­ber that White Board and how no one wants to allow Declar­a­tive Knowl­edge any­more (defined in pre­vi­ous post) that would accu­rately allow me to fac­tu­ally under­stand the Here and Now.

UN’s International Building Codes, necessary tool for Agenda 21 implementation

Agenda 21, Chapter 7Here is an excerpt from the pre­am­ble of the doc­u­ment Agenda 21:

Land… can­not be treated as an ordi­nary asset, con­trolled by indi­vid­u­als and sub­ject to the pres­sures and inef­fi­cien­cies of the market.

Pri­vate land own­er­ship is also a prin­ci­pal instru­ment of accu­mu­la­tion and con­cen­tra­tion of wealth and there­fore con­tributes to social injus­tice; if unchecked, it may become a major obsta­cle in the plan­ning and imple­men­ta­tion of devel­op­ment schemes…

Pub­lic con­trol of land use is there­fore indis­pens­able to its pro­tec­tion as an asset and the achieve­ment of the long-term objec­tives of human set­tle­ment poli­cies and strategies.”

By Henry Lamb, posthu­mously, I cer­tainly do miss his men­tor­ing and advice.

Any­one who reads Chap­ter 7 of Agenda 21, and then reads their local com­pre­hen­sive land use plan will imme­di­ately rec­og­nize that most of the pro­vi­sions of the local land use plan come directly from Agenda 21. [Con­tinue reading]
