By the way, The Eight-Year Study, 1933–1941, ref­er­enced below, was fund­ed and car­ried out by the Carnegie Cor­po­ra­tion of New York. The Eight-Year Study was the pilot for Skin­ner­ian Out­comes-Based Education…OBE (Carnegie’s Com­mu­nist Core).

What does all of this have to do with the Reau­tho­riza­tion of the Ele­men­tary and Sec­ondary Edu­ca­tion Act?

PLENTY. Amongst oth­er things, it calls for tax-fund­ed school choice/charters with unelect­ed boards, and much, much more.

3D, page 169. “A BROAD-GAUGED RESEARCH/REFORM PLAN FOR SECONDARY EDUCATIONIN THE TRADITION OF THE EIGHT YEAR STUDY” pro­posed by The Project on Alter­na­tives in Edu­ca­tion (PAE) in 1981, was sub­mit­ted for con­sid­er­a­tion and received fund­ing from the U.S. Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion and the Nation­al Edu­ca­tion Asso­ci­a­tion. The project was con­duct­ed by lead­ing Amer­i­can change agents, includ­ing Mario D. Fan­ti­ni, John Good­lad, Ralph Tyler, Ronald S. Brandt, Her­bert J. Wal­berg and Mary Ann Ray­wid. Explana­to­ry cov­er sheet of the grant pro­pos­al was sub­mit­ted on “The John Dewey Soci­ety” let­ter­head. PAE called for pub­licly fund­ed choice schools using “effec­tive school [out­come-based edu­ca­tion] research” and prin­ci­ples of the Eight-Year Study. These called for “incul­ca­tion of social atti­tudes, devel­op­ment of effec­tive meth­ods of think­ing, social sen­si­tiv­i­ty, bet­ter per­son­al-social adjust­ment, acqui­si­tion of impor­tant infor­ma­tion, con­sis­tent phi­los­o­phy of life,” etc.

Birds of a Feath­er Flock Togeth­er?

Who would ever have dreamed that a well-known, so-called “con­ser­v­a­tive” group, Heart­land Insti­tute, would be lead by the well-known (in change agent edu­ca­tion cir­cles, that is) Pro­fes­sor Her­bert Wal­berg?

choice 1
Pro­fes­sor Wal­berg has also co-authored a book enti­tled Rewards which calls for the edu­ca­tion sys­tem (teach­ers) to use the dog-train­ing out­comes/per­for­mance/­com­pe­ten­cy/re­sults-based rewards sys­tem on your chil­dren. This behav­ior mod­i­fi­ca­tion method was devel­oped by Russ­ian Ivan Pavlov and Harvard’s Pro­fes­sor B.F. Skin­ner. This method is essen­tial since Unit­ed States edu­ca­tion is no longer aca­d­e­m­ic edu­ca­tion for the upward mobil­i­ty of your chil­dren, but is mor­ph­ing into the Sovi­et life­long work­force train­ing (poly­tech­ni­cal) sys­tem which will “train” your chil­dren for spe­cif­ic jobs in the glob­al econ­o­my.

Pro­fes­sor Her­bert Wal­berg, active­ly worked with inter­na­tion­al­ly-known, and fed­er­al­ly-and tax-exempt foun­da­tion-fund­ed left­ist edu­ca­tion change agents involved with the 1981 fed­er­al­ly-fund­ed Project on Alter­na­tives in Edu­ca­tion (PAE) which is a research project focused on school choice/charter schools, and which includes a para­graph regard­ing the activ­i­ties of the late Theodore Siz­er. (Amer­i­can Decep­tion link) The late Pro­fes­sor Theodore Siz­er, whose Annen­berg/­cor­po­rate-fund­ed mod­el Coali­tion of Essen­tial Schools, New Amer­i­can School Devel­op­ment Corp (NASDC), is basi­cal­ly the Chica­go “small schools” char­ter school mod­el nec­es­sary for school- to- work train­ing. Sizer’s phi­los­o­phy is the same as Hitler’s : “Less is More” Mein Kampf by Adolf Hilter (Stack­pol Sons Pub­lish­ers: Ger­many, 1939) fol­low­ing quote found on page 70 of PAE doc­u­ment (Amer­i­can Deception,com) for ref­er­ence to Theodore Sizer’s involve­ment in this study:

(2) The ade­qua­cy of preva­lent assump­tions regard­ing ado­les­cents and how they learn ; (3) The high school cur­ricu­lum, and its rela­tion to edu­ca­tion­al pur­pos­es on the one hand, and to stu­dents on the oth­er ; and (4) Mod­i­fi­ca­tions need­ed in the high school in light of both the fore­go­ing and the schools’ insti­tu­tion­al his­to­ry . This study is just being orga­nized, under the direc­tion of Ted Siz­er.”

It is this writer’s opin­ion that the Com­mon Core par­ents are opposed to in the Unit­ed States is very like­ly the Robert Muller World Core Cur­ricu­lum, which reflects Prof. Sizer’s “Less is More” cur­ricu­lum. Go to 3D, page 260 for infor­ma­tion relat­ed to use by the Eugene, Ore­gon School Dis­trict 4J of the Robert Muller Cur­ricu­lum.

Excerpt: This [Robert Muller Cur­ricu­lum] ASCD frame­work was used by the Eugene, Ore­gon School Dis­trict 4J as a guide for devel­op­ment of their Edu­ca­tion 2000 Ele­men­tary Inte­grat­ed Cur­ricu­lum K–5. Char­ac­ter­is­tics of the Cur­ricu­lum:
What are some of the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the new cur­ricu­lum?

First, it expands the tra­di­tion­al under­stand­ing of “basic skills” to include dimen­sions of think­ing as well as lan­guage arts, math­e­mat­ics, phys­i­cal and social skill devel­op­ment. It shifts what is required from many indi­vid­ual bits of con­tent to major themes and relat­ed con­cepts.… With the for­mer cur­ricu­lum, ele­men­tary stu­dents were expect­ed to mas­ter 2,175 sep­a­rate bits of infor­ma­tion that includ­ed skills, con­cepts and con­tent orga­nized with­in eight dis­crete dis­ci­plines. The new K–5 Edu­ca­tion 2000 Cur­ricu­lum requires mas­tery of only six major themes, 60 con­cepts and 132 core skills orga­nized with­in three cur­ricu­lum strands. This revi­sion great­ly reduces the frag­ment­ed nature of the for­mer cur­ricu­lum and sig­nif­i­cant­ly decreas­es the num­ber of spe­cif­ic require­ments to approx­i­mate­ly one-tenth of the orig­i­nal num­ber.


Let me point out that the change agents men­tioned in this post are/were, over a peri­od of fifty-plus years, respon­si­ble for the “delib­er­ate dumb­ing down of amer­i­ca” and for the brain­wash­ing of our chil­dren and our teach­ers in ” New Age glob­al­ism” and the destruc­tion of tra­di­tion­al Amer­i­can val­ues. Their goal, as is the goal of the UN, UNESCO, OECD, etc. is a Com­mu­nist New Age/Anti Christian/New World Order Edu­ca­tion Sys­tem.

PAE’s let­ter­head, with attached request for tax fund­ing, states at the top “The John Dewey Soci­ety”.

The fol­low­ing well-known change agents are list­ed as mem­bers of the Steer­ing Com­mit­tee: the late John Good­lad, prob­a­bly the most well-known leftist/globalist change agent in the world, and the late Ralph W. Tyler, of almost equal fame in con­tro­ver­sial edu­ca­tion­al assess­ment and cur­ricu­lum devel­op­ment (Com­mu­nist Com­mon Core being the most recent label).

Both Goodlad’s and Tyler’s goals, over a peri­od of at least 50 years, involved chang­ing the Unit­ed States’ high­ly suc­cess­ful aca­d­e­m­ic edu­ca­tion sys­tem to an inter­na­tion­al life­long work­force train­ing sys­tem, in which Amer­i­cans will be con­trolled for life by the unelect­ed coun­cil form of gov­ern­ment (sovi­et) under “com­mu­ni­ty schools/hubs of the com­mu­ni­ty” which will pro­vide “all” ser­vices: work­force train­ing, leisure, sports, arts, health, men­tal health, abor­tion, etc.

The Steer­ing Com­mit­tee for the Project on Alter­na­tives, aside from change agents men­tioned above, includ­ed Ronald S. Brandt of the Asso­ci­a­tion for Super­vi­sion and Cur­ricu­lum Devel­op­ment (ASCD is a strong sup­port­er of Robert Muller’s World Core Cur­ricu­lum) and Mario Fan­ti­ni, author of “Pub­lic Schools of Choice”.

Back­ground on Ron Brandt and his sup­port for Robert Marzano, devel­op­er of Tac­tics for Think­ing, a frame­work for teach­ing think­ing devel­oped at the U.S. Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion-fund­ed Mid­con­ti­nent Region­al Edu­ca­tion­al Lab­o­ra­to­ry (McREL) and pub­lished by ASCD in 1986, can be found at 3D, pages 248–249.

Excerpt from 3D: “Tac­tics for Think­ing has recent­ly been the tar­get of crit­ics who argue that it “brain­wash­es” chil­dren and advances a “New Age” agen­da of one-world gov­ern­ment. Tac­tics, accord­ing to ASCD Exec­u­tive Edi­tor Ron Brandt, ‘gives teach­ers a prac­ti­cal way to teach their stu­dents to think well.’” Tac­tics for Think­ing includes brain­wash­ing meth­ods devel­oped by Russ­ian psy­chol­o­gists.
