Global Schooling: The Hijacking of American Education

August Forecast & Review
April 12, 2015

CommonCoreTree.jpgHijack: To seize control of (a moving vehicle) by use of force, especially in order to reach an alternate destination.
This issue demonstrates the virtual takeover, or hijacking, of American education by the same global elite who have already been noted in other issues of The August Review. The time period for this hijacking is roughly the same as the economic plundering of America detailed in For Sale: The United States of America -- it started roughly in 1973, and is still in progress today.
The success of globalism rides on the back of manipulating the minds of students to reflect patterns of global dogma. These students may be academically inferior to their 1970 counterparts, but scholarship was easily traded for the globalist-friendly character traits of a global citizen -- traits that will not question the globalist agenda, but that will indeed welcome it as an inevitable evolution of civilization.
It will be shown that the hijacking...
  • had careful forethought and planning
  • anticipated a specific timetable for implementation
  • was actually implemented according to the stated timetable
  • included plans to remove resistance and obstacles
  • was steeped in deception and double-talk
The common thread through all of this will be seen most clearly in the common patterns of financing that repeatedly surfaces: Foundations like Carnegie Corporation, Rockefeller Foundation, Ford Foundation, and others, who backed those working toward globalist ends.
The result is the total subversion of American education into the hands of a relatively small band of global elitists. There was no public or political mandate for their policies or actions. By and large they operated behind the scenes by blurring the distinctions between public and private policies, and by making sure no one connected the dots to accurately display the "big picture."
The mission of The August Review has been "Follow the money, follow the power". In this case, we are following the money. The big picture will reveal to the reader a startling scene that few have experienced before.

Background: Policy and Planning

In his contribution to the 1979 book, Schooling for a Global Age, Robert Leestma of the U.S. Office of Education wrote:
"National security today involves more than military preparation. Global education is one of the essential new dimensions.
"The globalization of the human condition is interweaving the destinies of all nations and peoples at an accelerating rate and affecting many aspects of life. Global education involves multidisciplinary perspectives about the extended human family, the existing condition of mankind and the planet, and foreseeable consequences of present trends and alternative choices.รข€1
The back side of the dust cover noted the financial backers of the studies:
The Danforth Foundation
The John D. Rockefeller III Fund
Martha Holden Jennings Foundation
Charles F. Kettering Foundation
Charles Stewart Mott Foundation
The Needmor Fund
The Rockefeller Foundation
The Spencer Foundation
U.S. Office of Education
National Institute of Education2
Emphasis is added to note two things: first, the Rockefeller and Kettering foundations originally funded the Trilateral Commission. Second, public funds were intermixed with private funds to facilitate and implement a non-public supported or authorized endeavor.
Schooling for a Global Age was an excellent example of global education strategy because of its authority of scholarship, financial backing and subsequent impact. Although it was not an "official" US government publication, government officials were quoted and substantial government funds were provided so the study could be undertaken.
In short, this book typified the then-current thinking of the National Education Association (NEA), the Department of Education, the various foundations listed and most importantly, the thinking of David Rockefeller et al.
