In the previous article to this one I noted Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi who founded a branch of the Illuminati in Zurich, Swtizerland in 1783. This might not seem important to some, but we need to begin to grasp the influence that Pestalozzi had on modern education.
On britannica.com in an article updated on 2/13/19 it was observed that “Pestalozzi’s method (of education) became widely accepted and most of his principles have been absorbed into modern elementary education… His ideas flow from the same stream of thought that includes Johann Friedrich Herbart, Maria Montessori, John Dewey…” You may not be that familiar with the first two mentioned here, but if you have read any of my previous articles on public education then you have to know where John Dewey, atheist and socialist, was coming from. Naturally the Britannica article made no mention of Pestalozzi’s Illumanist connections, but then, you would hardly expect them to. Continue reading

There is a newly published study out of the University of Virginia titled, “Is Kindergarten the New First Grade?” (based on a 2014 working paper), which finds, not surprisingly, that it is. This work should not be confused with the the 2009 study “Crisis in the Kindergarten” from the nonprofit Alliance for Childhood, which said:
Kindergartners are now under great pressure to meet inappropriate expectations, including academic standards that until recently were reserved for first grade.
Oh boy – here we go… You know, if it weren’t for the fact that I am considered ‘jail bait’ (for Facebook you perverts) I would post and old column by my former Associate Editor, Dick Weed entitled, “Save Our Teachers” wherein he stated, “I want to CLAMOR to be in her class too! Where can I apply to get molested?” ~ Ed
Teachers’ unions in the state of Rhode Island came out to show their opposition to a bill that would criminalize sex between employees and students, complaining that the bill unfairly singled out school employees. Continue reading

This gives new meaning to “Fruit Loops” in Kindergarten!
March 4, 2002 ~ I see in the Harvard Crimson (“Queer Studies Advances Cause” by Jessica E. Vascellaro, the Crimson, February 28, 2002), once the students’ newspaper of what was once a university, that Boston´s foremost daycare center, Harvard itself, wobbles toward adopting Queer Studies. Soon, apparently, there will be a Department. Why, you might ask, does Harvard want to study queers? It doesn’t, methinks. I suspect that the adolescents of Harvard, a category which also includes many of the students, merely want to behave disagreeably – to shock their parents or, in the case of the faculty, society. Queer Studies serves nicely. Next year it will be S&M Studies, Pedophile Studies, or a Department of Cannibalism.
On almost all campuses, the behavior of both the studentry and the professoriate is remarkably teenaged in savor. Universities are not the potting soil of maturity. The kids act like teenagers because they are teenagers. Continue reading
To quote founding father Thomas Jefferson, “The Constitution of the United States is the result of the collected wisdom of our country.” He also said about America, “With all the imperfections of our present government, it is without comparison the best existing or that ever did exist.”
Statesman Daniel Webster made the claim, “Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has happened once in 6,000 years may not happen again.” Continue reading
“I was taught really how to con the community.” ~ Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt
Charlotte Iserbyt has a long history of work with the U.S. Department of Education as a former policy advisor during the Reagan administration, as well as having worked for local school districts. In her seminal book, The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, she tells the story of how her interest in educating children was overshadowed by the dark truth of the modern education system, and the top-down plan to overhaul education to achieve statist aims.

Big Brother Or Eugenics?
Our American children are being conditioned to blindly accept a planned global economy. That means American ideals as patriotism and love of country must be deleted from what is taught to our children. Traditional education and the definition of family must go. Competition and rugged individualism must be erased from their personalities. But how will the globalists stop parents from teaching American ideals to their children? Students will be challenged everyday at school. Psychological and conditioning techniques are being used in the classroom to instill a more docile, compliant global citizen that reflects team efforts, group goals, and empathy. A global citizen controls their emotions and a compliant global citizen doesn’t ask questions and does what they’re told. Parents are now “engaged” in their child’s education. They are going along, to get along. Continue reading
A bill introduced in Congress would offer $5 billion in federal tax credits for state-based education scholarship programs. An analyst at a libertarian think tank, however, argues that’s not the way to go.
Under the Education Freedom Scholarships and Opportunity Act proposed in late February by Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Representative Bradley Byrne (R-Alabama), states would participate voluntarily and would have full control over the scope and purpose of their scholarship programs.

A Baltimore City Circuit Court judge has demanded Baltimore City Public Schools to hand over all documents Fox45 requested after Project Baltimore filed a lawsuit against the school system to get documents they believed would provide bombshell evidence of a massive grade-changing scandal.
“When I saw the ruling, I was elated because I believe in accountability, and government cannot run amuck,” says Scott Marder, of Thomas & Libowitz, the attorney who represented Fox45 in this lawsuit. Continue reading
How badly are we in hock to college? According to Bloomberg News, $1.46 trillion. That’s 1.46 thousand billions, or 1.46 million millions. And in the last quarter of 2018, seriously late or unpaid student debt was over $166 billion.
Those are colossally bad numbers, and no one seems to know how to make them any better. Somehow, sitting in college classrooms for five years and getting a degree in Gender Studies doesn’t translate into a viable income. College grads don’t earn enough money to pay off their debt; and their parents are borrowing to pay their kids’ expenses. Sort of a gift that keeps on giving.
The cost of what we laughingly call “higher education” has doubled in the last 20 years. Continue reading
The president of the National Education Association and a man who identifies as a woman recently teamed up to teach kindergartners transgender ideology.
It was “Read Across America Day” on March 4, and NEA president Lily Eskelsen García and transgender Sarah MacBride of the Human Rights Campaign read the kindergartners’ books on being transgender at Ashlawn Elementary School in Arlington, Virginia. The books were I Am Jazz and Julián Is a Mermaid. According to Breitbart.com, the teacher in that Ashlawn kindergarten classroom is Jaim Foster – “a gay man who lobbies for LGBTQ causes.” Continue reading
Federal Report Finds U.S. Department Of Education A Massive Failure *
Bad oversight, data quality, and evaluation methodologies have plagued the department since its creation in 1867. We still don’t know what we’re getting for billions in dollars spent, besides meddlesome federal mandates.
A new report raises questions about how the U.S. Department of Education monitors the performance of its wide-ranging elementary and secondary education programs.
The department currently receives $38 billion for its major K-12 education programs. Yet the assessment says those programs are plagued by “complex and persistent” challenges, many of which have been identified previously, according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), the official “congressional watchdog” charged with ensuring taxpayer dollars are spent efficiently.

Many who read this will be aware of the Illuminati and of who they were (and are) and what their designs for a One World Government were (and are). They don’t call them the Illuminati anymore. Nowadays they would probably be called something like “The New World Order” or possibly “The Deep State” or some kind of shadow government. But no matter what you call them the objectives of those who embrace their worldview have not changed.
There has been quite a bit written about them over the years (unfortunately not enough) and not on a consistent basis. They don’t exactly seek open publicity. Continue reading
Seriously, this follows after signing petitions to murder babies after birth by George Mason University students. Kent State graduate and all around gun girl Kaitlin Bennett showed up undercover at UCLA to promote a petition that would put conservatives in concentration camps, and yes, there were students who signed it.
I actually believe that people in these indoctrination centers, more than less, don’t have a clue about life or the world around them.
Still, Bennett posed as Jenna Talia to ask students if they would sign her fake petition to throw conservatives in involuntary re-education camps, also known as concentration camps. Continue reading
(So what else is new?)
You would think by this late date that most thinking parents would long ago have realized what the public school system in this country is really doing to their children. Sadly, this does not seem to be the case. People continue to feed their kids into these mis-education monsters and then can’t figure out why their kids come home with severe emotional problems.
If there were only a small handful of us writing about this stuff I could figure out why so few listen but there are literally hundreds of articles out there on the internet about what goes on in public schools, so many I can’t begin to mention them all. In any given article the best you can do is quote a few sources and hope that moves some people to start researching on their own. Those who are not willing to at least try to find out what their kids are being spoon fed are probably hopeless–and their kids will end up being even more so. Continue reading
NOTE: It has been over eighteen years since Alan Caruba penned this column for publication. Was anybody listening? ~ Ed.
The President’s education plan, with or without vouchers, suffers from an essential defect. In the U.S. Constitution’s enumeration of its powers and responsibilities as regards “raising revenue” (Article 1, Section 8) you will find no mention of “education.”
While education is a national priority, it is more properly a priority of the parents of students, their teachers, and local school boards. The flaw in President Bush’s education plans is the US Department of Education, an agency that since the 1970’s has racked up a dismal record when it comes to educating the nation’s youth. The “national standard” of education being discussed ignores the most fundamental issue. Under the DOE a deliberate plan to dumb down American students has been in place for decades. No one seems willing to discuss this. Continue reading
