In this latter regard, the writer of this article was told in 1981 by the Director of the Office of Libraries and Learning Technology, U.S. Department of Education, that ” in the future all education will take place in the home, using computer-assisted-instruction, but that we will always have the school buildings for ‘socialization’ purposes.” This is the United Nations lifelong learning/brainwashing concept (International community education) which places all community services under the umbrella of the community school.

The public sector succumbed years ago to federal control through funding. Now, private schools, willing to go the “voucher” route in order to get the money to stay in business, will have the opportunity to be equally dumbed down, denied a liberal arts curriculum, and stripped of all sound moral education.
