ABCs of DumbDown: Your Child the Guinea Pig – Behavioral Science Teacher Education Program (BSTEP)

Few Americans know about this program unless they were trained in education. Even fewer know how seriously bad this program was. And very, very few have ever spoken out publicly and repented (or at least recanted) their indoctrination experiences in this dangerous change agent training. Teachers have been trained to become psychological manipulators, humanistic “change agents” to modify children’s behavior.

Behavioral Science Teacher Education Program (BSTEP), 1965–1969, funded by the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, was initiated at Michigan State University. Its purpose was to change the teacher from a transmitter of knowledge/content to a social change agent/facilitator/clinician. Traditional public school administrators were appalled at this new role for teachers. Long-time education researcher Bettye Lewis provided a capsule description and critique of BSTEP in 1984. Her comments and verbatim quotes from BSTEP follow, which is taken from Appendix V in my book the deliberate dumbing down of america. This has been adapted, and portions emphasized, for blog posting.
