For years, Americans have been up in arms over the Obama administration’s unconstitutional efforts to nationalize education, primarily through Common Core. Especially concerning is the White House bribing and bludgeoning our state governments to surrender control over our schools. The outrage is still growing.
But a peek beneath the surface reveals that the nationalization of American schools is actually just one component of a much broader global agenda: the globalization of education. This is being openly pushed by the Obama administration, the United Nations, UNESCO, Common Core financier Bill Gates, the Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberg summit attendees, and many other powerful forces. It is all public record.
What do I mean by “globalizing” education? Just what the term implies: moving away from local, state, and even national control of schools into a brave new world where education policy is largely dictated at the global level. That might sound far-fetched if you’ve never done the research or get your news from the TV, but it is all essentially out in the open.
UNESCO — the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization — has been working toward this goal from the start. For decades now, globalists at UNESCO and other UN outfits have been openly plotting to impose what they sometimes refer to as the “World Core Curriculum” on all of humanity. If you want a real trip down the rabbit hole, investigate this. It was created by UN Deputy Secretary General Robert Muller, a disciple of influential occultist and Lucifer Publishing Company founder Alice Bailey.
Today, UNESCO has all sorts of “global education” schemes to transform humanity. In a recent column published by Project Syndicate, Bulgarian Communist and UNESCO boss Irina Bokova is very explicit about it all. She wrote that “education can bring about a fundamental shift in how we think, act, and discharge our responsibilities toward one another and the planet.” She also said that “schools can nurture a new generation of environmentally savvy citizens to support the transition to a prosperous and sustainable future.”
In the same column, she brags about how UNESCO and the UN Climate Change bureaucracy are promoting “climate change” education in schools and training teachers to shape the values of your children — all toward what UNESCO would like to see. Bokova and other UN leaders also regularly describe the purpose of their global education schemes as producing quote-unquote “global citizens.”
The UNESCO chief goes on to say that “what is needed now is a global movement, with every student in every country learning about sustainable development from well-trained teachers, equipped with the appropriate curricula and resources.” She also described the UNESCO-led “UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development,” which began in 2005, as “explicitly intended to instill in every human being the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values necessary to shape a sustainable future.” In every human being? Does that include your children? You can bet on it.
In 2004, billionaire Bill Gates, a chief funder of the UN Population Fund, abortion giant Planned Parenthood, and of course, Common Core, signed an agreement with UNESCO on global education. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, meanwhile, has been very open about his agenda too. Consider that he often refers to UNESCO as the administration’s “global partner” in the “cradle-to-career” agenda. At a 2012 “Sustainability Summit,” Duncan said the administration is working to quote, “build the science of sustainability into the curriculum, starting in kindergarten and extending until the students graduate from high school.” He also brags about using government schools to turn your children into “green citizens” ready for “green jobs.” Do you send you kids to school to become “green citizens”? If you’re like virtually every parent I’ve ever met, the answer is obviously “no.” You can read many of Duncan’s radical speeches right on the Department of Education’s website.
I want to leave you with one final quote from UNESCO that should give you some insight into where all of this global “education for sustainable development” is really going. In a UN “toolkit” for global “sustainable” education, the UN sustainability zealots tell us, “Generally, more highly educated people, who have higher incomes, consume more resources than poorly educated people, who tend to have lower incomes. In this case, more education increases the threat to sustainability.” Did you catch that? More education increases the threat to sustainability.
I’ve written very extensively on this subject, so I encourage you to read the articles in The New American and follow the links to the primary source documents embedded within them (e.g., see here, here, and here). In short, American schools and schoolchildren are being globalized. And your kids are in the crosshairs. Now that you know, what do you plan to do about it?
