THE WAY TO CORRUPT TO DEFEAT OUR COUNTRY IS THROUGH THE EDUCATION OF OUR YOUNG THE MOST EASILY INFLUENCED OF ALL AMERICANS

USA Today recently reported that the number of Americans taking antidepressants is soaring. This could possibly be in direct connection to the controversial Teen Screen survey given to children as young as 9 years old in public schools. Teen Screen has been responsible for policing the mental health of children over the past decade. It is significant that this mental-screening process usurps parental rights over the care of their own children.

There used to be a day in America when parents loved their children enough to chastise them, because they taught them to know the difference between right and wrong – which is love. They understood that “foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him” (Proverbs 22:15).

But today, the pharmaceutical companies and their minions in government are at work trying to convince you that spanking your child is abuse rather than love. And their resolve is to label your child mentally ill (ADHD, ADD, etc.) and put them on dangerous psychotropic drugs.

Though not in the same class as antidepressants, these psychotropic drugs can lead to the use of antidepressants. Read the antidepressant black-box warning for yourselves and read the side effects on the inserts of antidepressant boxes. Some of the side effects include:

Confusion
Depersonalization
Hostility
Hallucinations
Manic reactions
Suicidal ideation
Loss of consciousness
Delusions
Feeling drunk
Alcohol abuse
Homicidal ideation

More and more public schools have brought in TeenScreen, a manipulative survey for children that sets them up for a prescription. For example, one of the questions asked is: “Has there been a time when you felt you couldn’t do anything well or that you weren’t as good-looking or smart as other people?” Another question is: “In the last year, has there been any situation when you had less energy than usual?” Who hasn’t felt that way in their life at some time or another?

Nearly 20 percent of students who take the survey are labeled mentally ill, which leads to a prescription for drugs. This process is being sold as suicide prevention; however, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force found “no evidence” that screening for suicide risk reduces suicide attempts. In the meantime, pharmaceutical companies are raking in hundreds of millions of dollars a day while our children are used as political and medical guinea pigs.

Another interesting fact: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has never been proven. Dr. Edward C. Hamlyn, a founding member of the Royal College of General Practitioners, in 1998 stated, “ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction.”

GARY GATEHOUSE COMMENTS

I WOULD LIKE TO DRAW YOU ATTENTION TO THE UNITED STATES PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM,WHO CONTROLS IT AND THEIR AGENDA BASED ON NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION  PUBLICATIONS, TEACHER CURRICULUM, STATEMENTS,AND THEIR SOCIALIST AGENDA.

THIS INFORMATION ENFORCES WHAT WAS JUST COVERED IN THE USA TODAY PIECE,IT GOES A LONG WAY IN EXPLAINING  WHY MOST BOYS IN AMERICA TODAY ARE LOOKED AT BY PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS  AS TROUBLE MAKERS

1896. John Dewey’s “educational laboratory” opened at the University of Chicago. Called the Dewey School, it would pioneer experiments with behavioral psychology.

1897. My Pedagogic Creed by John Dewey was published. In it, Dewey states, “I believe that the schools is primarily a social institution…. Examinations are of use only so far as they test the child/s fitness for social life…”

1912. The NEA saw sex education as a useful tool in their values-changing process.

1921. The Psychological Corporation (“concerned with… promoting the extension of applied psychology….”) was founded with “progressive educators” such as G. Stanley Hall, Edward Thorndike and other ‘Deweyites’ as Directors.

1948. B.F. Skinner (1972 Humanist of the Year) described a society in which children are reared by the State.   (As most liberals think and were taught “IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RISE A CHILD”

1970. Chester Pierce, Professor of Education and Psychiatry at Harvard tells the Association for Childhood Education International in Denver that “every child in American entering schools at the age of five is insane because he comes to schools with certain allegiances toward our founding father, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity… “

1967. The NEA Journal published “The New Social Studies,” which said, “…the most obvious change occurring in the social studies is a breaking away from the traditional dominance of history, geography and civics. Materials from the behavioral sciences.  …sociology, social psychology…are being incorporated into both elementary and secondary school programs.”

1970. The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), the curriculum arm of the NEA, published To Nurture Humaneness: Commitment for the ’70’s. The visionary statements of its authors are coming true in our times: “Vital questions of values, beliefs, feelings, emotions and human interrelationships in all forms must be integral parts of the curriculum.

1988. The ASCD (the curriculum arm of the NEA) published “Tactics for Thinking,” a framework for teaching a new way of thinking which was developed at the Mid-continent Regional Eduational Laboratory (McREL).. Critics equated it with brainwashing.

SOME OF THE GOALS SET FORTH BY THE NEA IN YEARS PAST  WHICH LEADS UP TO TODAY’S CHILDREN AND THEIR COMPLETE LACK OF RESPECT FOR AMERICA

NEA’s Revolutionary Goals

1962. An editorial in the Chicago Sun-Times states: “…real control over the nation’s children is being shifted rapidly to the NEA. That organization has about completed the job of cartelizing public schools education under … an organization known as the National Council for Accreditation of Teachers Education, an agency whose governing council is tightly NEA controlled. … The manner in which the NEA is usurping parental prerogatives… is…very simple: control the education and hiring of teachers.”

1967. Working with the educational establishment, Carl Rogers (1964 Humanist of the Year) wrote a book called “A Plan for Self-Directed Change in an Educational System:” “…the goal of education must be to develop individuals who are open to change… The goal of education must be to develop a society in which people can live more comfortably with change than with rigidity.”

 “The school will need to be supplemented by neighborhood family centers which provide infant care and developmental activity…. Education may well begin at birth in cooperative family centers. (Francis Chase, Professor Emeritus of the University of Chicago)

“Many daily decisions and value judgments now made by the individual will soon be made for him… How to plan for one’s children’s education will be partially taken out of his hands. (John Loughary, Professor of Education at the University of Oregon.

 “Those who rose highest in the public schools establishment and the NEA were those most strongly committed to secularism and statism,” wrote Blumenfeld. Those two complementary philosophies fueled the vision of NEA leaders who sought an utopian world, freed from Biblical constraints and ruled by humanist politicians and taught by progressive educators. Parental rights and religious freedom would be swallowed up by the surpassing rights and rules of the greater community — the controlled collective.

1880. The National Council of Education (NCE) was established. An exclusive forum for leaders in position of influence and power, in included John Dewey, G. Stanley Hall, Charles Eliot and James Russell. Here they would discuss progressive ideas, blend psychology and evolutionary ‘science’ into a new vision of human progress, and lay the foundation for America’s planned transformation. B-43 Samuel Blumenfeld described their aims in NEA: Trojan Horse in American Education:

BOTTOM LINE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN BASED ON THE FOLLOWING

1948. B.F. Skinner (1972 Humanist of the Year) described a society in which children are reared by the State rather than their parents, are never punished, and learn only “desirable” characteristics from birth.

1952. In Crowd Culture, Dr. Bernard Bell warns: “To the Dewyites, a sound education is one which accustoms the pupils to discover group convictions and then conform to them. This is known as ‘becoming socially adjusted’. … they assume that … the group is always more trustworthy and wise than anyone within it.”

1952. National Training Laboratories (NTL) becomes a part of the NEA. In 1986, it will be separated under the name NTL Institute for Applied Behavioral Science.

1967. The NEA Journal published “Helping Children to Clarify Values” by Louis Raths, Sidney Simon and M Harmin. It said: “The old approach seems to be to persuade the child to adopt the ‘right’ values rather than to help him develop a valuing process….”

Professor Sidney Simon went a step further. His book, Values Clarification-A Handbook of Practical Strategies for Teachers and Students, added a more intrusive note to the vast selections of manipulative values-changing strategies used to speed the social transformation. Among the classroom exercises which soon filtered into textbooks and schools everywhere was a tactic called “values voting.”… For example, “How many of you

        think there are times when cheating is justified?
        regularly attend religious services and enjoy it?
        would choose to die and go to heaven, if it meant playing a harp all day?”

1968. NEA president Elizabeth Koontz tells the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education that “The NEA has a multi-faceted program already directed toward the urban school problem, embracing every phase, from the Headstart Program to sensitivity training for adults– both teachers and parents.”

PUBLIC SCHOOLS INDOCTRINATION CLINICS

1969.Today’s Education, an NEA publication, contains “Forecast for the ’70s,” by Harold and June Shane. They wrote, “…ten years hence it should be more accurate to term [the teacher] a ‘learning clinician.’ This title is intended to convey the idea that schools are becoming ‘clinics whose purpose is to provide individualized psychosocial ‘treatment’ for the student, thus increasing his value both to himself and to society.” Children would “become the objects of [biochemical] experimentation.”

1969. In Schools without Failure, psychiatrist William Glasser wrote: “We have to let students know there are no right answers… and may alternatives to certainty and right answer.”

COMMENT
To understand this planned rebellion against biblical values, consider Schools Without Failure, which introduced a manipulative strategy for turning the class into an encounter and counseling group: Children would share their feelings and air their complaints under the guidance of a trained facilitator with a politically correct answer. 

They learned to empathize with another’s lust and respect each other’s feelings. Soon, they had traded God’s moral standards for self-made choices. No longer would authoritarian parents impose their values on submissive children. They would write their own rules! Or so they thought.

NEA tactics manipulated students into yielding individual choice — along with privacy and family loyalty…. A child’s “honest” sharing about family activities gives school officials the needed data about family values. It enables them to monitor every family member — not just the kids in the classroom.

Rather than adding my voice to those who urge us to go “back to the basics,” I would argue that we need to move ahead to new basics… Certainly, cross-cultural understanding and empathy have become fundamental skills of human relations and intercultural rapport… the arts of compromise and reconciliation, of consensus building, and of planning for interdependence, a command of these talents becomes “basics”… As young people mature, we must help them develop… a service ethic which is geared toward the real world… the global servant concept in which we will educate our young for planetary service and eventually for some form of world citizenship. Harold Shane, “America’s Next 25 Years: Some Implications for Education,” Phi Delta Kappan (September 1976).
