The federal Department of Education was made a part of the president's Cabinet by new world order facilitator Jimmy Carter. Prior to that, America had the finest education system in the world. In 1980, Ronald Reagan promised that, if elected, he would get this unconstitutional department abolished.
That promise was abandoned after his election. While campaigning for his doomed-to-lose bid for the presidency, Bob Dole said on Sept. 9, 1996, while in Georgia, "We're going to cut out the Department of Education." At that time, the GOP presidential platform read, in part:
Our formula is as simple as it is sweeping: The federal government has no constitutional authority to be involved in school curricula or to control jobs in the workplace. That is why we will abolish the Department of Education, end federal meddling in our schools, and promote family choice at all levels of learning.
We therefore call for prompt repeal of the Goals 2000 program and the School-To-Work Act of 1994, which put new federal controls, as well as unfunded mandates, on the States. We further urge that federal attempts to impose outcome- or performance-based education on local schools be ended.
Of course, just the opposite has taken place and, in fact, the goals for creating the "New Communist Man" was given a huge boost with President Bush's deceptive "No Child Left Behind" program. As for the repeal of the School-To-Work Act of 1994, Council of Foreign Relations kingpin Henry Hyde explained it this way:
When carried to its logical extreme, it chooses careers for every American worker. Children's careers will be chosen for them by Workforce Development Boards and federal agencies at the earliest possible age ...
Statewide Workforce Development Boards have formed to study which labor skills are needed in each state to determine "human resources" training requirements. Of course, this will decide also where these human resources will reside.
Chilling to say the least and it gets worse when one reads President Bush's Executive Order, signed June 20, 2001, titled "21st Century Workforce Initiative." The blueprint for forced labor is now being implemented quietly while parents and politicians scream, "More money for education." Essentially they are asking to pay for the rope to hang their own children.
Most Americans believe "communism is dead," but nothing could be further from the truth and one of the major goals of the propagators of global communist tyranny has always been to get control of America's education system. What better way to reach "the unwashed masses" than through a federal department of education? The tenth plank of the "Communist Manifesto" reads: "Free education for all children in public schools," and this is one of the highest goals of communitarians. Jeri Lynn Ball, author of "Masters of Seduction" explains:
The communitarian efforts to take over the American education system began in 1918 after World War I. Early in the 20th century, John Dewey, "the father of Progressive Education," worked with internationalists to transform America into a communitarian society.
Dewey held that the basic goal of education is the eradication of the child's individualistic traits and "the development of a spirit of social cooperation and community life." Dewey did not want the child to think at all, but to learn to live and work within the narrow, primitive bounds of communitarian vocabulary and thought patterns.
According to the testimony of Norman Dodd, the staff director of the 1953 Congressional Special Committee to Investigate the Tax-Exempt Foundations, the minutes of the Carnegie Foundation revealed that the trustees of the Foundation decided right after World War I that they "must control education in the United States."
They joined together with the Rockefeller Foundation and created a plan to take control of domestic and international education. Dodd interviewed and Rowan Gaither, president of the Ford Foundation and discovered how he operated the foundation under strict instructions and orders "to the effect that we should make every effort to so alter life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union."
The federal Department of Education is unconstitutional. Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution does not authorize Congress to legislate education within the independent, sovereign states who are themselves a "Republican form of government." There is only one solution to stopping the brainwashing of America's children and that is for the states of the Union to completely sever any relationship with the federal Department of Education.
Most Americans don't have the financial resources to put their children in private or Christian schools and because so many mothers have been forced into the workplace to basically work to pay taxes, they can't homeschool. However, the people of the states can do the same thing the great folks down in Tennessee did over their fight against a state income tax: Put the heat on the state house and their state legislatures.
The federal Department of Education must be booted out of the states. Public schools must return to educating children with the basics and stop all social engineering and communitarian indoctrination. To continue down the same path of tossing trillions of dollars at the federal Department of Education is to guarantee transforming America's precious children into the "New Communist Man." We the people must stop this madness.
I do wish the Gipper coulda gotten rid of this behemoth 20 years ago.
The biggest problem is that reform is possible, whereas abolition is not. First we reform it out out of relevancy, then we abolish it. No Child Left Behind gives parental choice and much of the things that we'd like to see if DOE was abolished, but sweeping change makes voters uncomfortable.
We set a schedule of reforms and we stick to it until the DOE is irrelevant at the national level, and States can take care of providing their own education.
"The biggest problem is that reform is possible, whereas abolition is not."
Why not? If I were president (har har) I garon-damn-tee you I'd abolish it, if I had to stand in the door with a baseball bat and brain the commie nutbars as they tried to come to work.

If that is your idea of what a president is supposed to do, you MUST have flunked civics. Did you attend a public school, too? Presidents and their advisors form strategy, and assign people to accomplish the scutwork needed to make the strategy work. If you have a problem, you have a problem. If you have two problems, maybe you can use one to solve another. The president is also commander in chief of the military, and the military always needs more training. Send the Marines to secure the building. ;)
The marines always get to have all the fun.
If I were president, I'd use that awesome power to have me some fun, too.
Besides, I'll bet Andy Jackson flunked civics, too.
"Besides, I'll bet Andy Jackson flunked civics, too."
Let us say I wouldn't bet against you on that one! Andy ignored precedent and law to suit himself for his whole time as Pres. He is responsible for the conversion of our country from a republic to a popular democracy. Not, of course, all by him self, but in concert with the "little people" whom he rewarded by his actions as a powerful president who had a GREAT deal of popular support. Basically, he strongarmed Congress into doing what he wanted done. Nasty man, fascinating historical problem! Could well be one of our greatest presidents, despite his many and manifest flaws. He's what the PolSci types call a "Transformational Leader."
just the opposite has taken place and, in fact, the goals for creating the "New Communist Man" was given a huge boost with President Bush's deceptive "No Child Left Behind" program.
"Conservative" presidents have been a BIG disappointment for me on several issues, this being one.
NYC schools has asked for another increase in funding which would bring the total spending up to over $13,000/student! If parents were given just one half of that and were allowed to send their children to private schools or to use that money for home schooling, how much better would those children fare in the long run?
thank you for the link
The key concepts of transnational progressivism could be described as follows:
(7)Deconstruction of national narratives and national symbols. Transnational progressives have focused on traditional narratives and national symbols of Western democratic nation-states, questioning union and nationhood itself. In October 2000, the British governmentsponsored Commission on the Future of Multi-Ethnic Britain issued a report that denounced the concept of "Britishness" as having "systemic . . . racist connotations." The Commission, chaired by Labour life peer Lord Parekh, declared that instead of defining itself as a nation, the UK should be considered a "community of communities." One member of the Commission explained that the members found the concepts of "Britain" and "nation" troubling. The purpose of the Commissions report, according to the chairman Professor Parekh, was to "shape and restructure the consciousness of our citizens." The report declared that Britain should be formally "recognized as a multi-cultural society" whose history needed to be "revised, rethought, or jettisoned."13
