Sum­ma­ry: “The Com­mon Core Stan­dards” includes a per­for­mance-based test, aligned to the new stan­dards. Near­ly iden­ti­cal leg­is­la­tion is appear­ing state by state and is in all prob­a­bil­i­ty writ­ten by the Amer­i­can Leg­isla­tive Exchange Coun­cil (ALEC) or The Coun­cil for For­eign Rela­tions (CFR) who have now joined with the right polit­i­cal orga­ni­za­tions try­ing to con­vince cit­i­zens that our coun­try is in dan­ger of col­lapse due to chil­dren not being trained for the glob­al work­force.

Dr. Shirley McCune, senior direc­tor of the fed­er­al­ly fund­ed Mid-Con­ti­nent Region­al Edu­ca­tion Lab­o­ra­to­ry was involved in a plan­ning work­shop in Mil­lard, Nebras­ka, July 21, 1983. She pre­sent­ed a plan for sys­tem­at­ic change for our total soci­ety. One paper stat­ed that we are mov­ing from “par­ty pol­i­tics” to “poli­cies of the rad­i­cal cen­ter.” The rad­i­cal right and the rad­i­cal left appear to have met in mid-cen­ter on sev­er­al issues: Goals 2000; School-to-Work; NAFTA and GATT.

The New Amer­i­can Schools Devel­op­ment Corporation’s rad­i­cal design teams have been select­ed to “break the mold” away from basic-tra­di­tion­al edu­ca­tion in order to train chil­dren for the glob­al work­force. Pri­va­tiz­ing edu­ca­tion through Char­ter Schools allows these rad­i­cal design teams, and oth­er pri­vate enti­ties such as The Edi­son Project, Edu­ca­tion­al Alter­na­tives, Inc., and Dis­ney World (Mick­ey Mouse Schools) to rob Amer­i­can cit­i­zens of their own tax-sup­port­ed schools. This plan is being sup­port­ed by both the right-wing and the left-wing polit­i­cal groups who appear to have met in the rad­i­cal mid-cen­ter on edu­ca­tion, social con­trol and a glob­al econ­o­my.
