Finally, it should also be noted that, for the most part, local educators are just as ignorant of the issue as parents. Standardized tests are prepared at the behest of state or even federal educational agencies.
The actual contracted authors of those tests are often restricted to a small group of individuals or organizations which specialize in that task. Tests are sent to schools, which are instructed not to read the tests, and often not to even open the box until test day. Completed tests are to be immediately sealed and returned for grading. These steps are quite reasonable, as they minimize the potential for cheating or "teaching for the test.
Nobody seriously doubts that values are implicitly transmitted during normal everyday instruction in school. But there is a huge moral gulf between that and explicitly teaching values or attitudes. There is heated debate over how to teach relatively straightforward subjects such as reading and mathematics; do authors and promoters of these tests realistically expect there to be genuine consensus about whose beliefs are to be taught in preference to others?
Unlikely, at best. The continued abuse of the standardized testing process documented in Educating for the New World Order and its sequel, Microchipped, threatens the reliance and faith placed in those tests to help assess the effectiveness of our school systems. And as long as politicians and educational bureaucrats continue to try to "reform" or redefine education as a series of fuzzy, amorphous "Outcomes" that defy any reasonable effort to quantify, our schools are in danger of losing an already tenuous focus on their purpose.
The fundamental question surrounding the issue must be: In whose vision of the future is a new world order to be structured? In that of the government and the myriad special interests that wield influence there? We hope not. Known as Education's Whistleblower, she is a veteran of over nationwide radio and television talk shows and over speaking engagements. Her latest book Walking Targets: How Our Psychologized Classrooms Are Producing a Nation of Sitting Ducks points to an agenda that begins with government-controlled childrearing and force-feeds young people a pseudo-education under the cover of mental health, safety, jobs, and something called lifelong learning.
Walking Targets is a wake-up call for parents and educators alike. With over 40 articles covering education, family, behavioral science, mental health, privacy, political correctness and manipulation of public opinion the reader will come to see how educators and provocateurs are driving a wedge between parents and their children.

The primary issues raised in Educating for the New World Order are: A large number of standardized tests, administered annually to millions of school children throughout the United States and Canada, have been found to contain a substantial number of "affective" questions which have nothing to do with evaluating those students' academic accomplishment or potential.
The "correct" answers to these questions, according to the test developers, have a common theme running through them. This is clearly contrary to the principles we are trying to convey to our children -- such as in anti-drug programs -- that they shouldn't feel they must do something just because their friends do. In some areas, such as Pennsylvania, schools which administered such tests have later received "supplementary" instructional materials to be used in short-term programs.
Although Pennsylvania Department of Education officials maintained that the tests did not contain affective questions, the "supplementary" materials made no pretense of the fact that their purpose was to "remediate student attitudes. Moreover, because these supplementary materials were delivered to schools through the Intermediate Education Districts, they were not necessarily put through any review at the local level as to their appropriateness. Recently, tests began requiring students to supply their social security number, in direct contravention to the federal Pupil Privacy Act which President Clinton is rumored to be considering eliminating.
Why should the SSN be necessary? The tests are primarily intended to assess the academic progress of groups of students, not individuals. The results of those tests, however, are often stored in non-secure computerized databases. Even if no abuse of those data is intended, the potential exists for Johnny's daddy to run for public office and be faced with questions about personal or family beliefs based on how a year-old answered vague questions on a test 15 years before!
When challenged, state education officials deny that affective questions appear on the tests, but when claims are proven, tests have been withdrawn.

Remember this book was written in Fourteen years ago. I read the 4th Edition Everything mentioned in this book that was present in was originally planned in Everything mentioned in the book for future plans has come to pass and is fully implemented today Public Law Section expressly forbids the federal government establishing or developing curriculum. Public Law , Title I, Section , no. The government says that they don't collect personal data on students. Test questions relate to bodily functions, religious beliefs, sexual behavior and fantasies, parents' method of reward and punishment,sexual abuse, and more.
Sample question: I have had no difficulty in starting or holding my bowels or urine. Jacob Moreno, who pioneered the use of the strategy with severely disturbed mental patients in the s. In response to an inquiry Asst. The goal of education today is "functional literacy" or "minimum competency".
What we hear so often today about the populace that they are "useful idiots. And, we can see the students in the inner cities can barely do that. Elitists pick the leaders, not based on intelligence but by their attitude. The leaders, though, are not told they were picked so as not to destroy their ego. Obama is a picked "leader. They can never be "their own man. This is the futurists' "new world order.
Fourteen years later, today they have succeeded. Three elitists groups control the vast percentage of all the forms of media. The public gave up the three R's and got back the three "I"s: ignorance, illiteracy, and illegitimacy. Time-Out Boxes are used where children are placed in boxes for one class period to a full day while other students throw in trash and grass.
Some children have had to be taken to child psychologists to undo the damage. Parents either know nothing of this or are too afraid of the all-powerful educational elites. Suicide rates among children have tripled since "Suicide Prevention" programs have been introduced. The students are taught that suicide is a way out to avoid unsolvable problems.
Illegitimacy and venereal disease rates have gone up since explicit sex education was introduced in the schools. Because of the failure of the program the suggestion was; "More explicit sex education at still younger ages. Only one mother had the gumption to discipline her rioting child in all of the thousands of parents in Baltimore. The real problem is that the majority of the minority population don't know that they have been brain-washed and think that the way they act today is the correct way.
Most can't figure out that there is a better place to live than in a ghetto, ridden with crime and a failing educational system.
Believe me, there is a better way. By merely not voting for those who have kept you there for years. When in , the suggestion that the schools should not be molded to the will of a small elite None were.
