DEFINITION OF POISON!!!!!!!!!!
Do we in Maine know what we are allowing Governor LePage to do? Do we REALLY understand?
How do you like this? Especially Bullet No. 3! (bolded provision!!!!!) That is the END of religious education in Maine, and it is the end of “academic” education as well, in order to implement, through charter schools, lifelong Soviet system of polytech work force training using Skinnerian/Pavlovian operant conditioning software on the computer.
Removes 10-school cap on the number of charter schools approved by the Maine Charter School Commission
Allows colleges and universities to authorize charter schools
Permits religious schools to accept public dollars
Broadens customized learning opportunities (public and private options) for kids who are eligible for the free or reduced-price lunch program
And, don’t forget that Maine Heritage’s parent organizaton, Heritage Foundation, Washington, D.C. drafted the North American Free Trade Agreement which has robbed our people of hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs. Use of dialectic: create problem: NAFTA (loss of jobs), impose the solution: change economic system from free market to planned economy with public/private partnerships (charter schools with their unelected boards…taxation without representation)) necessary for global work force training, using our children to spin off profits for the global economy!
France is a good example of how state-funded private religious education resulted in the destruction of religious education. Started under the Vichy Government (Nazi Germany) during World War II and was continued through to today. I have all the research on the French case.
I’ll pay $100 to anyone who can prove me wrong.
Also, why would any of us support a school choice agenda that is supported by the following organizations:
1. Heritage Foundation and other neoconservative Trotskyite organziations
2. The Rockefeller, globalist Council on Foreign Relations
3. The leftist Obama Administration
All I can say to so-called conservative Republicans who are supporting this agenda:
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.
Documentation regarding this agenda, which was spawned out of my old office in the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Educational Research and Improvement (Reagan Administration), can be found in my bok “the deliberate dumbing down of america…A Chronological Paper Trail” which is a free download at http://www.deliberatedumbingdown.com. The updated, revised version covering (1999-2011) is available at http://www.amazon.com
Please forward this email far and wide!
The Carnegie Corporation’s “Conclusions and Recommendations for the Social Studies” 1934, calls for this exact agenda (charter schools, with their unelected boards, to be used for Soviet work force training purposes). Go to http://www.americandeception.com and type word “Conclusions” into the search engine for this little book. Here is Abstract describing book, taken from American Deception website:
“Conclusions and Recommendations for the Social Studies”, funded by the tax-exempt Carnegie Corporation of New York, published in 1934, is the most important report ever written on the future of American education. All its recommendations and its philosophy are an intrinsic part of education in the United States today. Professor Harold Laski, a philosopher of British socialism, said of this report: “At bottom, and stripped of its carefully neutral phrases, the report is an educational program for a ‘Socialist America’. One excerpt from this important report reads “The implications for education are clear and imperative: (a) the efficient functioning of the emerging economy and the full utilization of its potentialities require profound changes in the attitudes and outlook of the American people, especially the rising generation–a complete and frank recognition that the old order is passing, that the new order is emerging, (pp. 34-35).
