Proof of the Deliberate Dumbing Down of Our Schools
WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN OUR SCHOOLS?
In 1967 the, “Education Profession Development Act” was passed. In the late 60’s, federal taxpayer funds were diverted and still are from money given for this legislation to launch “TRAINING FOR CHANGE AGENTS” for the schools. Based on behaviorist and Psychologist Benjamin Bloom’s book , “The Taxonomy of Educational Objectives” federal funds from U.S. taxpayers were given to a professor at the Univ.of Mich. to develop “Innovations in Education, A change Agents Guide”
a training manual for facilitators,school board members teachers etc. The teacher became the instrument to change thoughts, ideas, beliefs and feelings. Psychological manipulation with the DELPHI TECHNIQUE is/was used to diffuse hostile parents,teachers,P.T.A.’s, anyone who resisted programs such as Sex Education etc. The Rand Corp. was drafted by the federal govt. to investigate the effectiveness of the program. Schools were considered and called laboratories, experiments, and subjects.
Charlotte Iserbyt, author of, “The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America” was the Senior Policy Advisor for the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI) under the Reagan Administration and a whistle blower of this insidious program in our schools.. In this video she speaks of the insidious, deliberate process of our school boards and educational systems to dumb down our children and to create a docile,compliant citizen. This program became the protocol for education, world wide.
