Charter Schools: The One World Classroom

“What is so mind boggling is that all of this is being financed by the American people themselves through their own taxes. In other words, the American people are underwriting the destruction of their own freedom and way of life by lavishly financing through federal grants the very social scientists who are undermining our national sovereignty and preparing our children to become the dumbed-down vassals of the new world order. It reminds one of how the Nazis charged their victims train fare to their own doom.” – Samuel L. Blumenfeld [1]

The American education system is currently in the planning stages to reshape their future. Many who are aware of this are raising a red flag regarding the current efforts of both left-wing liberals and right-wing conservatives  to come up with a better way to educate Americans - and the world. They are seeking “common ground” and have found it in the charter school system of education.[2]

World government-minded organizations, such as the neoconservative Heritage Foundation, the Carnegie Foundation, the Gates Foundation, and other foundations and members of Congress) are supporting the creation of charter schools. They are able to do this, since they are not subject to customary public school regulations, or unaccountable to the taxpayers who fund them.[2]

The perfect example of the Hegelian Dialectic has been at work. If you had ever wondered if there is a great dumbing-down of American education, now you'll get your answer, and why they are doing it. Using the Hegelian dialectical model, the globalists have intentionally set-up the current educational system to fail.
  • Problem: Many students have been trapped in failing schools and need a way out. 
  • Reaction: Many parents are getting upset at the poor quality in education, so now education is in crisis. 
  • Solution: Public charter schools come to the rescue by offering an escape from the education bureaucracy and provide a "high quality" education.[3]
A high quality of education...so they say.  Charlotte Iserbyt, former Sr. Policy Advisor in the Department of Education, confirms that "there has been a monumental conspiracy to dumb-down our children, and to change their values so they will march to the globalist drummers." She writes: "...in changing our education system from one which previously focused on academics to the corporate fascist workforce training model we are looking at today."

A corporate fascist workforce training model? What on earth is that?

Values Education

Overlooking the interest of the individual, 
and focusing on the interest of the community.

As a part of the charter school curriculum, values education will be taught. Sounds good, but it isn't what you think. It's focus will be on the value of “social efficiency”. Students will be taught that for the public benefit, a better-trained workforce will be created, but it will be for its private benefit. [4]

This lack of social efficiency and failing education was identified in a landmark education report under President Reagan called, A Nation at Risk. The anxiety of not having a well trained workforce has been a concern to many in Congress, as well. Rep. John Kline (R-MN), the chairman of the Committee on Education and the Workforce, recently called education a “jobs issue” and said “the competitiveness of our workforce” and the “success of our economy” depended on good schools. In this mode, it is the role of schools to train a productive workforce and to do so as efficiently.[5]

Many of the elite globalists see the Khan Academy as a solution to the widespread problem of widespread functional illiteracy, the general apathy towards education, and lack of social efficiency.

Khan Academy
The Khan Academy is a non-profit educational organization, created in 2006 by American educator Salman Khan, a graduate of MIT. With the stated mission of "providing a high quality education to anyone, anywhere", the website supplies a free online collection via video tutorials stored on YouTube.

Mr. Khan explains how he got started. Bill Gates is in the video and says that this concept will be revolutionary.

Gates Foundation and Google donated $2 million for his material to be translated into 10 languages. Mr. Khan now hopes to change the way students learn from kindergarten all the way to graduate school. Mr. Khan calls his revolutionary idea “the flip,” and the basic premise — that classroom lectures followed by homework followed by exams is a recipe for educational failure.[5]

 A team was hired after the receipt of the donation.

Near the end of the next video, Mr. Khan says,
 "I think what you will see emerging is this notion of a global 'one world classroom', and that is essentially what we are trying to build."

One Laptop per Child
I have to wonder if Mr. Khan had greater things in mind when he started these videos to the world. Since he is a graduate of MIT, he knew about Nicholas Negroponte, the founder of the MIT Media Lab, who was the driving force behind One Laptop per Child  beginning in 2005. Coincidentally, MIT is a member of the Committee of 300/Tavistock Institute, and the Club of Rome. The Committee of 300 and the Club of Rome are elitist organizations whose goal it is to bring about a one world government. Knowing this, we can see why globalists have been wanting to send computers to remote communities into third world countries. It may also explain why Mr. Khan may have had the UN goals and the One Laptop per Child project in mind when he started teaching his relative via the internet. Someone was going to have to develop an online school.

The World Curriculum 
How the world core curriculum of Robert Muller and the curriculum of the charter schools are similar, I'm not sure. I do believe, however, that the charter schools will be used as a testing ground for an online community with the world, being the next great step. Allow this YouTube blogger to tell you about the proposed plan for Universal Education.

Milestones and the Year 2020
The first milestone is 2015, which coincides with the UN Millennial Development goals, but there is an even more significant deadline in the year 2020. Education 2020, which is presently being funded by the Rockefeller family, will meet the educational objectives that were learned in the charter schools and incorporate it into the public schools - at least that's the way it appears.

Note as you are watching the next video, that the words sharing, emerging, sustainability, global citizen, and some other catch terms are used. The virtual classroom is emphasized for the older learning group, with a trend toward e-books and paperless learning. It seems that they are moving toward the Montessori model of teaching, and are low pressure for memorization. In fact, the program resembles the model presented in Marilyn Ferguson's New Age book, The Aquarian Conspiracy. When I read it, I wasn't sure why she spent so much time on educating children, but now it makes sense.

Many will believe this is the best way to educate our children, because all the faulty information will be provided to them. Just as many cheered Hitler on to stardom, this system will be viewed as the solution to our educational downfalls by our world system. Some decisions on education will be good ones, but their main goal is to indoctrinate, control the masses, and dumb-down. The conclusions Charlotte Iserbyt has drawn are correct. How I have fit the pieces together may not be exactly right, since most of this information isn't available - but they are definite pieces to the puzzle. There is something that is viewed correctly. Those who are orchestrating this global manipulation will blindly lead our world down a path of destruction.

"Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes." Romans 3:16-18
