Education is one of the areas Obama is in the process of “reforming”. I’ve already published critiques of his reform plans, so I won’t repeat those arguments here:
The Educational System Was Designed to Keep Us Uneducated and Docile
Obama scapegoats teachers, continues Bush education policies
At the center of the plans is standardized testing:
Obama: Higher Education Standards Key to Keeping Country Competitive
If we look into where the reform plans come from, we are led to an organization called Strong American Schools. On their website we find the whole agenda spelled out, in glowing PR terms:
Who is Strong American Schools? Let’s ask Wikipedia…
Strong American Schools, a project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, is a nonprofit organization supported by TheEli and Edythe Broad Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that seeks to promote sound education policies for all Americans. Through its “ED in 08” information and nonpartisan advocacy campaign, it seeks to inspire a debate about America’s schools and to make education a top priority in the 2008 presidential election.
Roy Romer, the former governor of Colorado and a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, serves as chairman of the organization. Marc S. Lampkin, the deputy campaign manager for the 2000 Bush-Cheney presidential campaign, acts as the executive director.
That is to say, the Rockefellers, part of the same financial elite who brought down the economy, and are now controlling it, are also giving us our educational policy. And they’ve managed to dupe Bill Gates into funding their PR campaign.
that’s how the system works
