What my son's school is teaching this week. Unbelievable...

R*E*S*P*E*C*T

At Jeffers Elementary:
to value yourself, others,
and the world around you.

Parents: Our life skill for October is RESPECT.

We will be learning about friendship and
RESPECTFUL ways to treat others in
health/personal wellness lessons this month. In the
classrooms, students are talking about different
ways that they show respect:

Honoring another’s opinion, belief, or needs.
Being considerate and polite.
Taking care of the environment.
Taking care of personal or public
property.

AND

Obeying people in positions of authority.

I am so sick of this. My son is in Kindergarten and this is what I have to deal with. Before he began his first year, I resigned myself to the station of dealing with this kind of thing. My advice is to stay on top of your children's education.

I saw a children's coloring

I saw a children's coloring book the other day that had "terrorists" in it! They had Julian Assange listed as a wanted TERRORIST! A journalist that printed information passed to him by a whistle blower that exposed corruption in the US is being pushed on our kids as a world wide terrorist!

That is NOT appropriate!

And it wouldn't be appropriate no matter what terrorist or purported terrorist was depicted! Let children be children, for heaven's sake! Teachers, private school teachers, Sunday school teachers, most all teachers these days do not understand the CONCEPT of

DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE CURRICULUM.

It's the same as needing to crawl before you walk; babies who walk first WILL suffer negative consequences. If you want children to be successful, let children be children; then once they reach adolescence, treat them like teenagers/young adults. In this culture, we have it BACKWARDS. Schools treat even young children like miniature adults and then coddle high schoolers. (P.S. One thing young children of coloring book age NEED to thrive is a sense of security.) If you can get hold of that coloring book to see what company published it or if you know what school, organization, or store distributed it, please post it here. On behalf of children, they need to hear a thing or two.

Lutheran school

Pulled my kids out of public and put them in private Lutheran school. Love it! What you describe sounds like the self-manager program....might be nationwide? Extremely disturbing, at my kids' public school they were actually tying in Obama at the assembly for "acceptance", as in " even if your parents didn't vote for Obama, they need to accept him as their president now". (Note how the principal was undermining the parents as well) Boy did the kids get lecture from me on questioning authority! If you have a private Lutheran school check it out you might really like it!

Thank you, I like what you said about questioning

authority. I have thought long and seriously about this and it did come to me that questioning authority (though with mutual respect) is what is taught in the home and at church. With the latter, this would seem to be a first amendment issue in regards to freedom of religion if the lesson truly indirectly undermines parental authority. If this is a subject that is taught in schools, let the children know how our country was founded, by questioning authority. How will we have children who grow to adulthood without this skill? I am a divorced father and have another hurdle to overcome as a result, so pulling my child will require patience, one of my favorite lessons to teach my son :)

Changed schools

The head count is the key. That is how schools are funded. Find yourself a good charter school. There are many. Or, home school.

I regret sending my kids to public school.

Highly ranked Jesuit schools teach socialism.

Run for School Board.

May be they meant questioning

May be they meant questioning the people in positions of authority!

You should see what has

You should see what has happened to Girl Scouts...same thing. The camping, hiking, and outdoor skills has become just a remnant of the focus and now the whole thing is on the same sanctioned nonsense the schools spew out. Don't even mention to most of these people about Girl Scouts traditional use of rifles as a sport...they cant reconcile the two together in their minds.

the exact same has been happening to France and its people ever since Jules Ferry :

this is where it all begins. why on earth do you think they call it an "Institution" for. Public schools directed by government means government controls your children to be Good workers who cooperate.

Robert Muller is known as a “father of global education,”ix and received the UNESCO Peace Education Prize in 1989 for his World Core Curriculum, a global education program. As a former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations, Muller’s clout in the international community is impressive. It should not be surprising, then, that Muller’s World Core Curriculum is discussed in UN circles as an innocent and useful education tool.

At the UN’s 56th Annual DPI/NGO Conference in September 2003, a workshop explained how Muller “developed a core curriculum to teach the whole child.”xi It discusses how Muller’s curriculum “included hygiene, gardening, vocational training, marketing, entrepreneurship, as well as values and respect.”

What the speaker neglected to mention was the seriousness of the occult and New Age philosophies and practices being spread through Robert Muller’s program.

The first Robert Muller School opened in 1979, with dozens more following.xiii Thousands of people now use his program, and Muller believes every school in the world should teach his curriculum. What are the key points of Muller’s message that he wants every person on Earth to learn?

A quote from the UN and OCCULT AGENDA -

The report said on the opening page of Volume V, "In the Classroom with Children Under Thirteen Years of Age...Before the child enters school his mind has already been profoundly marked and often injuriously, by earlier influences...first gained, however dimly, in the home."

On page 9, the teacher is told: "The kindergarten or infant school has a significant part to play in the child’s education. Not only can it correct many of the errors of home training but it can also prepare the child for membership, at about age seven, in a group of his own age and habits — the first of many such social identifications that he must achieve on his way to membership in the world society (emphases added)."iii

Stormer explains that "the UNESCO study makes it plain that the errors in home training include parental encouragement of patriotism. On page 58, the guidebook for teachers says: 'As we have pointed out, it is frequently the family that infects the child with extreme nationalism. The school should therefore use the means described earlier to combat family attitudes (emphasis added).'"iv

Stormer also tells us that the strategy for solving the "problem" of patriotism has already been decided:

UNESCO gives a specific suggestion in Volume V, page 11, on how this can be done: “In our view, history and geography should be taught at this age as universal history and geography...The study of history…raises problems of value which are better postponed until the pupil is freed from the nationalist prejudices which at present surround the teaching of history.v

And this is fantastic!

Charlotte Iserbyt: The Miseducation of America -

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezTIYd5UFRY

Charlotte Thompson Iserbyt served as the head of policy at the Department of Education during the first administration of Ronald Reagan. While working there she discovered a long term strategic plan by the tax exempt foundations to transform America from a nation of rugged individualists and problem solvers to a country of servile, brainwashed minions who simply regurgitate whatever they're told.

Part one of our exclusive interview with Iserbyt breaks down how conditioning/training under a corporate agenda has replaced traditional education, leading to a deliberate dumbing down of Americans. Iserbyt further explains how Reagan signed agreements merging the U.S. and Soviet systems under the United Nations banner, turning over education and many other areas of public policy to global control.

This 74 minute exposé is a must see for anyone who wants to truly know why the education system is deliberately crafted to produce human drones with no critical thinking whose only skills are to be subservient, trust authority and follow orders.

schools do notice if you pull your kid out for a day or two

in CA they get $31 bucks a day from the state for having your child attend.

if you really want to stand up to this, keep them home and thank them for letting you know in advance of the propaganda lesson

So maybe just maybe

Time to consider removing your kids from this situation? You can "stay on top of it" and try to constantly de program, or you can try to prevent the brainwashing in the first place.

Dude. If you dropped your kids off with Hitler Youth every morning, would you really be all that surprised that the poor sap was told some pretty wild tales about jews?

So why not ditto, for dropping him off with an organization funded by totalitarian authoritarians?

Similarly, of course $100K/year, triple divorced single mom taxfeeding whores titulated as school teachers, are going to "teach" your kids about the benefits of unionized labor, sexual "freedom" and how nice it is to live in a "welfare" state that "takes care of" those children who just happen to end up on wrong side of the above.

As I'm sure others have said before; subjecting your kids to a bunch of tax feeding leeches all day, every day, for the only life the poor kid will ever have; is nothing short of child abuse. Much worse than Nintendo on the couch all day; even if that should somehow happen to be the only alternative.

From my discussions with my

From my discussions with my American relatives here on the west coast, I don't think the situation is as bad in the US as it is in Europe, especially France. Check out the links I gave in this thread.

Or go spend just one week with kids in a random French junior high public school... Then I promise : you WILL freak out by the educational content.

Of course, even public school teachers are people and the free will of some will reject gross and hard statist propaganda and endoctrination and will resist all they can from inside the system, if they love liberty for themselves and their own kids. It is NOT too late in America, I believe.

But everything is done, in France at least, to really endoctrinate every single fiber of this preparation to society:

flattery and privileges for these public servants, overwhelming centralisation (all programs are done by bureaucrats in Paris for the entire nation), internal cronyism, etc.

Jules Ferry called the teachers he envisioned "the new soldiers of the State".

Such a confession...

You are so far off base with this misplaced hatred of teachers

Starting teachers in Ohio make around $25,000 a year or so. The highest earning teachers in the school systems who have been there for 30 years make around $60,000. A third of this money, of course, is taken directly from them again with income taxes just like everyone else. Calling them tax leaches is ridiculous and spiteful.

Of course there are some overzealous liberals in education because every occupation has them. The rational teachers (which are a majority) have to deal with their irrational counterparts and bureaucratic consequences just like everybody else.

Teachers stick to their subjects. My dad spent thirty years teaching, get this...

[drumroll]

Biology! What a shocker!

Your comment is typical of the exaggeration that is dominating the DP.

Where are you getting these numbers from?

I checked, and it looks like starting salary for Ohio teachers is over $40k and average salary is mid $50's. Don't believe me? Try this for a start:
http://www.teacherportal.com/salary/Ohio-teacher-salary

I have the utmost respect for teachers, but facts are facts. Since public school teachers derive their wages solely from tax dollars taken by force from those who work in the free market, then by definition, they are leeches and parasites. Not a hateful statement, just the truth.

As a victim, I agree

Yes this is true, I never made much money in 35 years of teaching. THAT is not where the money goes. It goes to wacky consultants that push 'constructivism' and 'whole child theory' nonsense that causes the opening for all the brainwashing.

You should instead try to help teachers who are also the victims of brainwashing and pressure to teach political agendas and threatened with job loss if they don't go along with the 'one world' concept.

Before you go on the attack of teachers, befriend one and get them to see you support their right to teach academics and a few personal universal values, not UNESCO one world values which are embedded into the curriculum.

Just doing their jobs? When

Just doing their jobs? When was the last time teachers got together to demand to voluntarily be part of the public union?

Agreed. The problem is the system.

Blame the system, not those who are stuck in it and may not even realize. That's also how we will get more people to join our movement. Not by attacking them. It's the system that's the problem, the system that encourages it. Just like welfare, foreign policy, etc.

I honestly don't hate

I honestly don't hate teachers, and I don't really doubt you are correct in what you say. And sorry if I came across as mean spirited / disrespectful of people who are just trying to do a good job.

The problem is, teacher pay is being set, not by teachers convincing parents they are worth what they charge. But rather by teachers' representatives lobbying Leviathan for more, more, more. Which Leviathan then goes out and collects from parents, and others, regardless of what said parents and others think of the value they are getting for their money.

Therefore, if the teachers you know are good, decent people, they are so

1) Despite the incentives built into the compensation/funding scheme under which they operate. And

2) Living on borrowed time. As long as Leviathan has the final say in pay, Leviathan, like everyone else, wants value for his money. And will to that end suggest, then cajole, then demand, then force those who wants to teach, to teach what he wants them to teach. Which is guaranteed to be very far from the truth: that Leviathan is useful for exactly nothing, except perhaps target practice.
