If you thought the loss of parent’s rights over what level of government brainwashing their child is subjected to within the regular public school system was bad enough in this country, check out the new idea radical Obama Education Secretary Arne Duncan was throwing around last week while speaking at the National Summit on Youth Violence Prevention: public boarding schools.
He was quoted as saying, “That’s a little bit of a different idea — a controversial idea — but the question is do we have some children where there’s not a mom, there’s not a dad, there’s not a grandma, there’s just nobody at home?”
And why exactly is no one home? Because the middle class is being systematically murdered and everyone who isn’t on government welfare or part of the .0001% has to work multiple jobs just to keep a roof over their heads and the lights on these days?
So why not let the government be these kids’ family?
See the whole agenda at work here?
Duncan also proposed even more “after-school programming” as part of the “‘cradle-to-career’ education agenda” via The New American:
Claiming that there are “just certain kids we should have 24/7,” the controversial figure also proposed, citing inaccurate information, turning government schools across America into “community centers” that would offer students even more “after-school programming.” Despite escalating criticism of Duncan and his scheming — one analyst called it “scary” — the proposed plots were hardly surprising considering other elements of what senior officials often refer to as the “cradle-to-career” education agenda.
In essence, according to Duncan in various speeches, government schools, now largely controlled from Washington, D.C., are being used as a “weapon” to “change the world.” With the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as what the education secretary called his “global partner,” public education will also serve as a tool to transform children into what he described as “green citizens.” If Obama’s “Green Jobs” Czar Van Jones had not been forced to resign over his self-declared revolutionary communist views, he could have even placed the newly minted “green citizens” into the “green jobs” Duncan says the feds are preparing them for.
The feds… preparing our nation’s children… as a “weapon” to “change the world.”
How very Hitler of them.
Others in our government have been heavily pushing the idea of even longer school days. Last year, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie wanted to extend the school lunch program into a school dinner program to go along with longer school days/years. President Obama has proposed almost the same thing since 2009 – along with a universal daycare program (that’s right, universal) to get even more kids into government education centers at an even earlier age for longer and longer periods of indoctrination.
Government boarding schools, however, takes the indoctrination cake.
Can you just imagine the world our government is building up all around us? The future this country is looking at under the constant government social engineering and “leadership” of these people?
It’s bad enough already that our schools openly teach to the middle, many using convoluted and confusing Common Core methods to further dumb down an already deliberately dumbed down populace where, above all, critical thinking skills are not just downplayed but are actively being stamped out all together the nation’s children over.
Now the government wants some kids to be completely shipped off Agenda 21-style to government education (read: brainwashing) camps where parents will not only have zero input on what these children are being taught (while the kids are turned into mindless government drones), but the parents will barely even see their children at all.
I bet somewhere in classified government documents the public is not allowed to see, this too is referred to as “national security.”
Reminds me of what social engineer Bertrand Russell once said:
“Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished…. Influences of the home are obstructive; and in order to condition students, verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective…. It is for a future scientist to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it cost per head to make children believe that snow is black. When the technique is perfected, every government that has been in charge will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.”
