A New Kind Of Classroom?

New York Times reports “A New Kind of Classroom: No Grades, No Failing, No Hurry.” “Jane Robbins, a lawyer and senior fellow at the American Principles Project who has written critically about mastery-based education, said she finds the checklist nature of the system anti-intellectual. While it may work to improve math skills, it is unlikely to help students advance in the humanities, she said.” Read more HERE.

Charlotte Iserbyt comments:

How does Jane Robbins at the American Principles Project suddenly get quoted in The New York Times as an education expert concerned over Skinnerian Mastery Learning, Direct Instruction, Competency-based Education, Outcomes-Based Education, Results-based Education, when she and the neoconservative groups with which she associates, all, over a period of many years, have supported tax-funded school choice/charters with unelected boards, necessary for corporate fascist polytechnical communist school to work. Charter schools require Skinnerian Mastery Learning and all the method’s other alphabet soup labels which she and others of her ilk now claim to oppose.

And, in passing, the computer, Skinner’s box, requires this animal-training method. Skinner said “I could make a pigeon a high achiever by reinforcing it on a proper schedule.”

Where have the so-called “experts” been since the late sixties when the first Mastery Learning program, Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction (ECRI) was funded by the U.S. Office of Education? Ignorance regarding this Pavlovian/Skinnerian pillar of workforce training and brainwashing is really inexcusable. If these so-called education experts don’t understand the “method”, why would anyone believe they have an understanding regarding anything “education-related”?

Of course, I suspect they understand very well the deception they are carrying out, and the deception may just work very well since views of persons such as myself or Ann Herzer, or any other Americans concerned about the changes taking place in our nation through so-called education reform are censored 100% by the Trotskyite neoconservatives and the corporate media which supports changing our traditional academic education system to a communist workforce training system (charter schools) which use our children to spin off profits for the global elite.

Those neoconservative groups, starting with Eagle Forum in 1985, date of publication of my Back to Basics Reform or OBE…Skinnerian International Curriculum, have been boycotting every article, book, booklet Ann Herzer and I have written since the early 1980s. Herzer, public school reading teacher and member of the Arizona Federation of Teachers, was deeply involved in the Arizona AFT’s opposition to the mastery learning method. The late Al Shanker, President of American Federation of Teachers, tabled Arizona Federation of Teachers’ resolution asking the federal government to stop funding destructive Skinnerian curriculum and methods.”
