The Dangers Of Computer Curriculum

Just received a note from the trenches. A high school in the Northeast has been informed that they will begin to be an ONLINE school.

AP courses will be given there on Saturdays for CHARTERS. All in the building will be FACILITATORS. A new grading system is being negotiated with the Union right now for Mastery Levels.

It has been learned that ‘white privilege’ is incorporated in the curriculum which is escalating tensions. District training sessions are using that term.

Complaints from students, such as ‘The French teacher is too white”, are being considered important.

Minority advocacy groups are checking hiring practices and how many minorities are in AP classes.

The plan could be fully implemented within 5 years and nothing will be able to slow it down.


Please relate the above information to the following text from a very old (1970s) National Education Association professional paper relating to the need for conscience when developing computer courseware.

This document prompted me to leak Project BEST (Better Education Skills through Technology) to the press (Human Events) in 1982 which resulted in my being relieved of my duties as Sr. Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement, U.S. Dept. of Education.

This 1970s document is more important NOW than ever since the results of this 1982 grant (Project BEST) are now being implemented. Not only will this computerized “system” be used for controlling our children’s attitudes, values, and beliefs via computer curriculum, the system itself will be used to control Americans in their towns as is spelled out in Project BEST’s publicity brochure which includes a footnote on how the computerized system can be used in other areas such as community planning for health, transportation, housing, etc. (the lifelong community education/workforce training system under unelected school council) being implemented as I write.  Read more HERE.

I hope hundreds of thousands of people will read it and UNDERSTAND what these education technology gurus (not neoconservatives pushing Skinner and computers) were saying about the need for a conscience when developing computer course ware.

Has everyone forgotten the POWER of the computer (the brainwashing machine) which Skinner referred to as “my box”?

Please forward this article everywhere, especially to your local school board members and supporters of charter schools.

  1. I would like to add a weird thing that happened when I went to Ottawa with a friend. We were invited to a pro football game and 2 local guys were asked if they wanted to meet us and go along. They seriously asked our hosts, “Are they white or are they French”. The comment in your article then may mean white in contrast to a native Quebecois type French speaker. Maybe in Maine.. not in regular America.
