VIDEO:Who Controls Our Children ? (Public Education Dumb Down Kids Deliberately)

While parents, schools, provinces and states across North America bicker about the democratic process of running public schools, forces are manipulating education from behind the scenes. Major international players are reshaping public education to suit their own self-serving agendas, without regard for the wants of parents and the welfare of their children. This video lecture documents how today's educational system dumb down kids deliberately, making zombie-like people who don't ask any questions but just follow orders.

Education can be positive or negative depending on the purpose and depending on the outcome. Indoctrination doesn't necessarily mean it's bad. It means to teach a doctrine. See these are the definitions of words and it's the purpose and the outcome which can make it good or bad depending on its purpose.

Public Schools: Manufacturing Center For Mindless, Immoral Slaves
By Rob Ronning
The total takeover by the global elite’s agenda is rapidly progressing as never before in human history, and many people are becoming more aware of the significance of events as they occur. At home, the economic situation is bleak, the threat of terrorist acts is unprecedented, and an Orwellian-style government is tracking our personal lives and transactions, while our freedoms are being systematically stripped. Abroad, the possibility of an ‘endless war’ starting in Iraq and escalating to include the possibility of many other countries such as North Korea, Iran, Libya,and Syria ominously looms in the near future. Those of us with children or grandchildren are increasingly conscious of these and other influences affecting the most innocent and vulnerable in our society. Our public education systems have become training grounds for immorality, drug addiction, deviant behavior and learned violence instead of basic knowledge. Our children certainly deserve better than this!

American public schools have been sliding towards their current state for many years. In the book entitled, The
Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, Charlotte Thompson Iserbyt completely details the plot against our children by those who control the system. She served as the Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement for the U. S. Department of Education during the first Reagan Administration. Iserbyt was also a former school board director in Maine, and is considered an expert on educational policy matters. This is a highly informative book, and should definitely be read by all parents concerned about the education of their children. In this book, Iserbyt details the school-to-work programs designed to train the next generation of slaves instead of providing the necessary basic education that enables personal freedom and independence. I recently came across an 1895 final examination for eighth-graders in a small Kansas town. This test is quite interesting, and should serve as proof of the conspiracy against our children. The original document is on display at the Smokey Valley Genealogical Society and Library, in Salina, KS and has been reprinted in that area’s local paper. The test consisted of over 40 questions covering Grammar, Arithmetic, U.S. History, Orthography, and Geography. Five hours were allotted to complete the exam. The following questions are taken directly from the actual test:

· What are the Principal Parts of a verb? Give Principal Parts of lie, lay, and run.

· District No. 33 has a valuation of $35,000. What is the necessary levy to carry on a school seven months at $50 per month, and have $104 for incidentals?

· Find bank discount on $300 for 90 days (no grace) at 10 percent.

· Who were the following: Morse, Whitney, Fulton, Bell, Lincoln, Penn, and Howe?

· Name events connected with the following dates: 1607, 1620, 1800, 1849, 1865.

· What are the following, and give examples of each: Trigraph, subvocals, diphthong, cognate letters, linguals?

· Use the following correctly in sentences: cite, site, sight, fane, fain, feign, vane, vain, vein, raze, raise, rays.

· Name and describe the following: Monrovia, Odessa, Denver, Manitoba, Hecla, Yukon, St. Helena, Juan Fernandez, Aspinwall and Orinoco.

It is interesting to note that these questions were geared toward preparing the students to become knowledgeable and productive members of a free society; not the mindless values and sensitivity training our children are now required to learn in public schools. How many of today’s eighth-grade graduates could answer the example questions correctly (or the rest of the test)? Realistically, how many high school or college graduates possess the knowledge level required to have successfully graduated the eighth grade in 1895? An eighth-grade education obviously meant something 100 years ago!

My own education was superior compared to my peers, but I was still affected by the public school morality meltdown. In the late 1980’s I graduated from a home school taught by my stay-at-home mother. Not only do I count it a privilege to have had this experience, but am grateful for the quality education it afforded as opposed to the American public education system.

A mixture of public, private and home school attendance fulfilled my elementary and secondary education. During my junior high school years, I attended a local public school and was exposed to several situations that made my parents question the validity of the entire system. In one of my classes, the teacher brought a prostitute into the classroom to tell her story, and in another, I was exposed to a film called “The Lottery”, in which the end result dictated the removal of one person by stoning to death. The person was chosen via an all-inclusive lottery, and at the end of the film, the child of this unfortunate person was forced to participate in the actual killing act! I was also advised by the school counselor on more than one occasion not to adhere to my parents’ wishes concerning elective classes.

My parents were so alarmed by these experiences in the public education system, that their decision to home school seemed a logical conclusion. Even 15 to 20 years ago, the public school system was attempting to negate parental authority as well as force twisted morals and ideas into innocent children’s minds.

Shortly after my parents began to home school, social workers harassed my parents concerning the education of the three school-age children in our household. At one point, these same social workers visited our home to “observe the environment” and admitted to my mother that they did not see an abusive situation. In spite of this admission, my parents were intimidated by the experience, and placed my brother, sister, and me back into the public school system at the beginning of the next scheduled semester. Ultimately, my parents decided our education was too important to leave in the hands of a corrupt system that did not share any of the values they were attempting to instill in us, and began to home school again after only one semester.

Today, public schools have only decayed even further. We now have a blatantly socialistic, one-world, homosexual agenda constantly forced upon all the children in the system. Public schools increasingly have become less focused on real education, and are more engaged in training children to be subservient world citizens with only politically correct values. Parental authority and wishes are ignored, and children are encouraged to view their parents as incompetent and unenlightened. Parents who are alarmed at these trends are finding that alternate education options are becoming more difficult. I am alarmed by reports of home schooling parents being informed they are in violation of state truancy laws unless they are either licensed teachers or are using public school curriculum (both of these “requirements” are completely false if the pertinent state laws are referenced). I read in horror of home-schooled children forcibly being removed from their homes and parents under highly questionable pretenses.

The world system being placed into operation realizes that the family is the backbone of resistance to their plans, and that children are the key to the final implementation of their designs. A battle is raging on many fronts for the minds and futures of our children, and the public school system is one of the main battlefields. Do not allow your innocent ones to be destroyed by this evil! Consider an active parental role in their education as an insurance policy against the development of future tyranny and as one of the many ways you can combat it today.

Imagine a college student who went to public school trying to pass this test, even if the few
questions were modernized. Imagine their professors even being able to pass the 8th Grade. Can
Americans, student and professor alike, get back up to the 8th Grade level of 1895?
I seriously doubt there is anyone in America who could pass this simple test. Some
professors could pass the subjects they have a doctorate in, but they would fail the rest.
This is absolute proof that the New World Odor Gang has succeeded in dumbing down the
American people. Is it no wonder few Americans realize they are being led to the
