U.S. Public School System To Replace Classical Literature With “Approved, Non-Fiction” Texts
December 7, 2012 in Politics
USA- In an new strategic attempt by the core controllers of the United States public school system, classical literature reading requirements of books like To Kill A Mockingbird and Salinger’s Catcher In The Rye with be replaced with so-called “informational manuals” and other “factual” texts. The new requirements are supposedly to “ready pupils to enter directly into the workplace”. According to the Telegraph, who interviewed Jamie Highfill, a teacher at Woodland Junior High School in Arkansas, said “that the directive was bad for a well-rounded education.” “I’m afraid we are taking out all imaginative reading and creativity in our English classes. In the end, education has to be about more than simply ensuring that kids can get a job. Isn’t it supposed to be about making well-rounded citizens?“ What sounds like something ripped from the pages of Charlotte Iserbyt Thompsons’ “The Deliberate Dumbing Down Of America“, these new educational standards have been pushed and approved by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers with the Common Core State Standards board leading the way. What’s even more damning about the project, is that is it largely funded by a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, who has been directly and indirectly linked to providing deadly vaccines, like polio, for children in poor countries which has led to increased disease death rates (among other things including other grants for education). According to the new requirements, 70% of the compulsory reading would contain manuals and other texts about things like “insulation manuals and plant inventories”. The new requirements should be implemented by the year 2014. Not only has the government and other “educational” organizations destroyed a child’s innocence through “sex ed” and their critical thinking skills, they will now be majorly stripping everybody of their artistic abilities of both outward and inward expression through things like real musical talent, painting, drawing, sculpture, woodworking, and largely creative writing and literature. >>
