LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Fundamentally transforming American education

The General Education Board was incorporated by Congress in 1902, endowed by John D. Rockefeller Sr., and the purpose was to set up an educational laboratory experiment with the educational systems that were established by Voigt, Thorndike and Dewey. They believed that children are nothing but experimental fodder; their principles go so far as to say that children are nothing more than rats, mice and monkeys that need to be molded in their educational experimental laboratories.

The director of this congressionally established organization (GEB), Frederick Gates, said that this is the purpose of our federally established educational systems: “In our dream we have limitless resources and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present educational conventions fade from our minds and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own goodwill upon a grateful and responsive folk.”

How do you mold people to yield with perfect docility to the federal government? They must be indoctrinated into thinking that government knows best, that you cannot question government, that government is your ultimate provider and your ultimate protector! The only way you can do this is by cookie-cutter system and eliminate any challenge to government education whatsoever!

Our education system is being rewritten by those who would create an American populace that will simply yield themselves with perfect docility to the government mentality, and that way the Marxist system that has been placed in our educational systems since 1885 to transform us into a socialist government will have its way because we have allowed government to teach our children for decades.

In 1917, the Congressional Record of the U.S. Senate published this statement, the general education board was authorized to do almost every conceivable thing which is anywise related to education, from opening a kitchen, to establishing a university, and its power to connect itself to the work of every sort of educational plan or enterprise conceivable will be especially observed.

The fundamental transformation of America has been ongoing since 1902. The fundamental transformation of America did not begin with Barack Obama; it began with the GEB incorporated by Congress in 1902, the creation of the NEA in 1906 and the creation of the federal education system in 1953 (DOE). What’s interesting is that the Department of Education began as the Federal Security Agency and was upgraded to the cabinet-level status as the Department of Health, Education and Welfare in 1953.

In 1979. President Carter advocated for the creating of a cabinet level of the DOE; all he did was change the name. It began as the Federal Security Agency. Is anyone thinking this is bizarre? Our Department of Education began as the first department of homeland security. It’s so transparent; they told us exactly what they wanted to do.

In 1942, the American Federation of Teachers published a book titled “America, Russia and the Communist Party in the Postwar World,” and they said, “If this war is to be followed by a just, lasting peace, America and Russia must find a way to get along together.” How are they going to get along together?

Well, in 1945 the U.N. Charter becomes effective, and with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as a prime mover in establishing the U.N. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) mandate for international intellectual cooperation was already beginning to work under the League of Nations resolution on 21-09-1921. So, we have UNESCO working prior to the establishment of UNESCO; now, we have UNESCO formalized through the U.N. Charter, adopted by the United States and right in line with the GEB, Thompson, Dewey, Harley and the NEA’s directives.

In 1958, Eisenhower signed the first set of agreements with the Soviet Union which included an educational agreement, and agreements like this have been signed by every American president since Eisenhower. How do we get people to think globally? You allow the United Nations to write your curriculum and you establish a global curriculum, and then, you mandate that all your students learn it from cradle to grave.

It’s not just a deliberate dumbing-down of America; it’s a well-publicized, well-documented plan, to simply create a society of people who do whatever the government wants them to do!
