Truth the mainstream media doesn't tell you about
Deliberate Dumbing Down of America by Charlotte Iserbyt:
In Cathy O'brien's book, "Trance-Formation of America", this system of education is referred to as Global Education 2000, which is a part of what is also known as Agenda 21. She speaks of a meeting held in 1984 where all the governors were invited to become a part of the federal programs designed to take over the funding and learning systems (total control) of all state and local educational systems. As I understand it, most governors never made a peep, while those who resisted were eventually made to cooperate or get out of government altogether. From, "Access Denied for Reasons of National Security" by Cathy and her husband, Mark Phillips:
"this education system... was designed to increase our children's learning capacity while decreasing their ability to critically analyze."
"From experience I knew that Senator Byrd had deliberately withheld funding for schools nationwide for years, creating a reliance on federal funding that was contingent upon the Global Ed program."
