Part 2: A Call to Action!


School choice came from the Left and is now being launched by the Right. A great illustration of this is found in my book the deliberate dumbing down of america (p. 322) in a quote by Marjorie Ledell, an associate of William Spady’s in his High Success Network, who said:

"Finally, raise the real issue and depend on democracy. Don’t let “to OBE or Not to OBE” or “to implement or not implement efforts to improve student learning” cloud the overdue national debate about whether public education should exist or be replaced with publicly funded private education." [Educational Leadership, Jan. 1994, bold added]

As outlined in this article, my position on supporting traditional public schools with elected boards accountable to the taxpayer does nothing to diminish my deep concern regarding the "deliberate" dumbing down of those very schools. It is interesting that the following groups have been involved in the "deliberate" dumbing down of our children ever since 1945 when the USA joined the United Nations. Equally interesting is that all support "tax-funded school choice,"and have for many years:

the U.S. Office of Education and U.S. Dept of Education (and its laboratories and centers)
the leftist globalist NEA and AFT unions (the leaders, not the teachers)
the colleges and universities (training of teachers)
the corporations
the tax-exempt foundations

We have been victimized. We are caught between a rock and a hard place. What "real" choice do we have?

See the last speaker on You Tube video below: "For the few who will benefit, what happens to the other millions of children left in public schools. It just doesn't make sense."

Of course, that You Tube video was produced a few years ago before educators and others in New Jersey knew what was coming down the pike...that there wouldn't be any public schools left—at least ones with elected school boards… representing the taxpayers!

Look at New Orleans, which has become a 100% charter district. One of the leaders in the national school charter movement is John Ayers, ex-Vice President and Treasurer of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. John is the brother of Bill Ayers of the 1970’s communist "blow up buildings" Weathermen movement. John Ayers is now an integral part of the national education restructuring agenda out of Tulane University in Louisiana. No more blowing up buildings--just blow up the traditional education system! New Orleans children will now be marched into workforce training and lifelong community services being implemented across the nation as I write. Read the Georgia Visions: A Vision for Public Education

Does anything in this article sound familiar to you? Probably not, since you have been deprived of the history of what has really been going on in education since 1945. There has been a 100% boycott of the well-researched truth about what has been going,especially since 1980, under President Reagan, when the “old/new” education agenda restructuring was finally carved in stone. This restructuring required a move from academic to Skinnerian performance-based (OBE) education. Such a move was necessary if a planned economy using school-to-work initiatives was to be realized. My office in the U.S. Dept. of Education (the Office of Educational Research and Improvement-OERI) connected with UNESCO and OECD, Paris, was called on to implement this radical/unconstitutional agenda.

In 1980, upon the election of President Reagan, the Democrats in Congress, who had been responsible for the ESEA 1965 funding of all the outrageous values-destroying programs put into schools in all 50 states, put their feet up on their desks and handed over the “new/old” restructuring of America from capitalism to socialism/communism to the Republican neoconservatives. Such restructuring would require school-to-work training and the unelected council form of government (regionalism/communism). See my book the deliberate dumbing down of america, page 134, for proof that regionalism is communism, from an article in The Daily World (Nov. 1975) titled “Planning Is Socialism’s Trademark” by Morris Zeitlin. The Daily World (newspaper of the Communist Party USA) was formerly known as The Daily Worker and was founded in 1924. The importance of this article lies in its blatant admission that regionalism, which is gradually becoming the accepted method of unelected governance in the United States (unelected councils and task forces, participatory democracy, public-private partnerships, etc.) is the form of government used in democratic socialist and communist countries.

President Reagan placed his mark on this corporate/fascist/socialist agenda when he implemented the “White House Initiative on Private Sector Initiatives,” which allowed the public schools to partner with the corporations to “train” students for the workforce. This spelled the end of academic education for the good of the student and the end of “accountability to taxpayers. Our children, from that time on, would be considered “human resources” to spin-off profits for the global elite.

Remember Secretary of Education T.H. Bell’s highly publicized “A Nation at Risk?” which told America that there was a test score problem when there really wasn’t one? We were all lied to in order to get Americans on board with the aforementioned education restructuring. It was a superb use of the Hegelian Dialectic: Create the illusion there is a test score problem, when there wasn't really one; get people to scream; come to their assistance with "their" sugar-coated restructuring solution... ALL under a so-called conservative President.

And we fell for the lie… hook, line, and sinker, thus enabling the termites to offer us a solution: the restructuring from academics to workforce training “solution” (?)facing us today. All components of this solution came out of my office. In fact, I was assigned to work with Reagan-appointed, neoconservatives (most of whom were not educators) in the planning and oversight of the various components of the solution:

• computer technology for education and assessment (get rid of books!)
• tax-funded school "choice" (supported by radical right and radical left
• massive global education, including extensive signing of international education
• agreements.
• push towards lifelong community education under unelected councils
• Use of the Skinnerian performance-based direct instruction/mastery learning method (using operant conditioning) starting with Skinnerian reading instruction (DISTAR), congressionally carved in stone by the Reading Excellence Act, after the true phonics method of teaching reading had been deliberately destroyed by Whole Language. The carving in legislative stone was a necessary part of Carnegie Corporation's (Marc Tucker/David Hornbeck) corporate performance-based school-to-work agenda. Skinner said “I could make a pigeon a high achiever by reinforcing it on a proper schedule.”
A Nation At Risk

Fifteen years ago the National Alliance of Business called for kindergarten to age 80 workforce training! Read that over and over and ponder the future of your family and our nation.

Does the reader know that government-funded school choice is INTERNATIONAL? Charter schools are international; they are called "contract" schools in Russia. The USA is one of a very few nations, perhaps the only one (?) not to have accepted this totalitarian publicly-funded private education system. "They" at the international level MUST draw us, the most important nation in the world, into the trap. Otherwise the global computer system won't work—every child born on this planet must be enrolled in this government/corporate funded and controlled school choice system or the global computer data won't compute. Makes sense doesn't it? How can you have a smoothly operating global workforce training system without "tax-funded school choice"? The money MUST follow the individual child; each child with his individual education plan being trained for his/her job which has been designated by the public/private partnership... perhaps "lifelong." This is the Soviet polytechnical system. This is what the late Prof. Eugene Boyce of University of Georgia described so well when he defined communist polytechnical education as follows in his book The Coming Revolution in Education, 1983, as quoted in the deliberate dumbing down of america, page 317:

"The communists do not educate people for jobs that do not exist. No such direct, controlled relationship between education and jobs exists in democratic countries.”

By the way, in the 1970s, 19 out of 20 of UNESCO's education advisors came from the Soviet Union and Communist Bloc countries. American education philosophy, methodology, curriculum, and assessment are based on directives from UNESCO and OECD (Office of Economic Cooperation and Development) in Paris, France.


ROCK-POISON #1: Tax-funded School "Choice"to spin-off profits for the global elite, with no say whatsoever in your children’s education (how your tax money is spent: aka taxation without representation).

This agenda is supported by President Obama; Secretary of Education Arne Duncan; Lou Gerstner, ex-CEO of IBM,and Reed Hastings of Netflix (both of whom called for bringing down the public school system with its elected boards); Rockefeller Council on Foreign Relations (CFR); the neoconservative Heritage Foundation; and most, if not all, of the so-called "Conservative”tax-exempt groups.

Especially, do not forget that the Heritage Foundation drafted the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which has robbed Americans of hundreds of thousands (millions?) of good-paying jobs! Communist Karl Marx was an ardent supporter of free trade. As a good communist he knew free trade would kill capitalism, the backbone of our successful economy which has been the envy of the world.

ROCK- POISON #2: Back to the local level.

Less lethal, mainly since we have an escape valve—locally elected school boards. Retain the traditional public education hierarchical structure: K-12;three principals;academic focus; competition; stringent graduation requirements (4 years math, English, history, science, languages, etc.); get rid of the federally and foundation-funded and developed highly controversial Skinnerian performance-based OBE dumbdown, globalist, values-destroying curriculum, which includes mental health focus starting pre-kindergarten!

The U.S. academic education system pre-1965 was known to be the finest in the world. Especially since it attempted and succeeded in serving more young people—from all classes, races, and incomes—than any other system in the world.


VOTE: get out in the streets (like parents in Hong Kong were doing over the same Chinese Communist “International Effective Schools” education agenda two years ago.)

SWITCH GEARS from participating in the phony, heavily-funded anti-common core diversionary bandwagon; move onto fighting the real war: opposing all forms of tax-funded school choice. Tax-funded School Choice is the Trojan Horse that may well, over time. collapse our representative form of government.

Do the following while you can, before your right to vote has been removed under tax-funded school "choice:"


No more federal or international UNESCO/OECD intrusion (control) from the Departments of Education, including all its regional laboratories, Labor, or Health and Human Services in Washington, D.C.
No more data collection at the federal,state, or regional levels.
Abolish your state Department of Education since there is ample evidence that our State Departments of Education are evolving into entities primarily dealing with lifelong community workforce training and other services. A state department of Community Schools could easily assume the federal role due to heavy federal funding of state departments of education over the years.


Your job is to find one good senator to craft legislation to resume these hearings. (The details are at my blog, “RESUME THE 1953-1954 REECE COMMITTEE.”


This legislation has been signed into law by Louisiana’s governor and restores local control of curriculum, methodology, and privacy rights to locally elected school boards, taxpayers, and, especially, to parents.

Be sure to check-out THE PEOPLE, LL Cat Facebook. These folks are willing to work with education activists in all states interested in crafting similar legislation.

THE CATASTROPHE FACING ALL OF US RIGHT NOW HAS BEEN PLANNED SINCE AT LEAST 1948. THAT PLAN (The Montgomery County Blueprint dated 1948) has been posted at my blog. See the article: "THE PLAN: CRADLE TO GRAVE."

This Plan very likely was conceived by the Carnegie Corporation of New York since it was spelled out clearly in Carnegie's little blue book Conclusions and Recommendations for the Social Studies, 1934, which called for using the schools to change America's capitalist economic system to a planned economy (school to work) and even called for the seizure of private property!
