Outcome-Based Education Eliminates Choices
Imagine going to the Super Bowl, The Rams vs the Patriots. Before the game starts the announcer says,” Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, We will now toss the coin to choose the winner of the game. “The WINNER of today’s game will be the LA Rams.
How would you feel? Would you want to stay to watch the game? Would the players want to play? Or would you feel cheated and get up and leave? Your life changes when you know the outcome in advance. You become disinterested, bored, feel cheated, and unfulfilled…a mindless Drone. One of the Collective.
Welcome to… Common Core: Outcome-Based Education.
When the outcome of your life is known in advance and that is that, what happens to the mind? You have no hope, no future, you are depressed. What is the point of living? You turn to drugs, s e x, getting in trouble, acting out. You are told you need drugs to keep you quiet, to stop you from being depressed. Life doesn’t matter. Someone else’s life doesn’t matter. You have no ambition, curiosity, innovation, creativity. WHY BOTHER? You know the end of the story, your life’s story. This is what happens when you know the outcome in advance. That is what Common Core, or Outcome-Based Education does to people. The outcome of your life is PRE-DETERMINED by someone else, other than you or your child. Your child loses HOPE and as we see may turn to suicide. Do you think your child will feel cheated? No one consulted them – yet this impacts the rest of their lives.
Go now, and tell your child, “Honey you are going to grow up and be a lawyer. But Ma, I don’t want to be a lawyer, I want to be an engineer.” Too bad, you are to be a lawyer – your school computer already picked your profession. The computer DECIDED FOR YOU. Is that OK?
If you don’t think it is OK for you to tell your child what they should do with their lives, then WHY do you think it is OK for the government to tell your child what they should do with their lives?
A computer program with Algorithms (programs) records your child’s key strokes, key words, key answers…and determines what Vocation your child is best suited for! I can’t tell you how many youngsters I taught – that changed their careers every time I taught them something new. They were excited. That excitement…is now GONE. Think outside the box is gone!
I changed careers several times…but THAT DOOR IS NOW CLOSED.
YOUR CHILD’S FUTURE…NAILED SHUT!
ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act 2015) is now the law of the land. You must understand how dangerous it is, and relay this message to your Legislator!!
Common Core will force your child into a PRE-DETERMINED CAREER PATH, one suitable for fulfilling the Government’s chosen careers, and ESSA WILL FORCE YOU the taxpayer TO PAY for that training.
Instead of solving the problem of a poor education, the people are told that choice is the answer. Does the location of poor learning make a difference? Public school, charter school, private school, home school, if the curricula is the same, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
YOUR TAXES will be redirected to Charter Schools under the idea of “CHOICE” – (Choice makes you feel good). Charter Schools are corporate-owned schools. You pay, but the corporation answers to its SHAREHOLDERS, NOT YOU. This is called “Taxation without Representation.” – BTW, Wasn’t that what the American Revolution was fought over? Tell your Legislator: Close the Fed Dept of Education and Repeal ESSA. (Every Student Succeeds Act)
What would this accomplish? It would be one step closer to dismantling Common Core, and gives your child BACK…their ability to control their own Destiny – without stealing money from you, under the premise of CHOICE. It would put Education back in the hands of the states.
If you listen to the Legislators’ talking points… they are espousing meaningless NONSENSE!
Many of them have never read the Constitution.
Understand it? – Nah.
Support it? – Eh, not so much.
Follow it? Fuhgehttaboutit.
Original Source Documents describing everything I mentioned and more, are found on the sites below. Source documents showing the incorporation of American schools into the Communist model of the old, failed, Soviet Union; documents showing changes in curricula replacing Facts with Value, replacing Individualism with Collectivism; documents showing: Learning is now Training; documents showing partnerships with Microsoft and UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) creating World Wide Common Core for the Citizens of the World…Weren’t you told this is an American program – that is GOOD for America? Visit these sites often. I hope you understand your education was MANIPULATED, but each Generation that passes….LOSES MORE, AND LOSES OUT!
Know what YOU…and YOUR CHILD – ARE UP AGAINST.

The author of these sites is Charlotte Iserbyt, former Senior Policy Analyst (Under Education) for Ronald Reagan. It was Charlotte’s job to go through the Board of Ed papers and discard them, as they were to close the Dept of Ed (which of course, never happened). Instead, Charlotte copied the documents and put them out – so all could see the history of advancing a Soviet Education in America. I lived in NYC in the 1960’s. At this time my class of teachers was the first group to graduate and teach the “new” method called Outcome Based Education. I did not understand why would anyone want the outcome of their life determined by someone else?
My Masters is in Liberal Studies and my post grad credits come from the New School (New School of Social Research-John Dewey’s propaganda pit as I called it). There I learned how to integrate media, Hollywood, and education into a neat package and use it through emotion to get the desired outcome for Outcome Based Education. I refused and taught the way I learned. My students learned, achieved and created. I taught until I was forced to stop using the old methods.
Students are Trained, NOT EDUCATED.
Corporations then have plenty of SLAVES (er, I mean WORKERS)…
READY-MADE FOR INDUSTRY.
Your child is nothing more than Human Capital, after all.
I felt like I was turning the kids into Worker Bees…
Mindless Drones…on an assembly line.
Why is integrating media and Hollywood so important? It is necessary to reinforce the message. Take the Gov Northam saga for example.
Isn’t it time that we stop judging people for thing done 30+ years ago. Stop giving the Dem/Communists a platform. What about Hollywood and all those entertainers who were heavily into “show business share-cropping”. “Sophie Tucker, Eddie Cantor and,” Eddie Fischer, “performed in at the beginning of their careers, singing songs. They later built on their successes in this medium to develop national statures and professional success with other music. At the peak of his career, Jolson was dubbed “The World’s Greatest Entertainer.” Hollywood made blackface acceptable, others just followed.
In 1842, the songwriter Daniel Decatur Emmett and three companions devised a program of singing and dancing in blackface to the accompaniment of bone castanets, fiddle, banjo, and tambourine. Calling themselves the Virginia Minstrels, they made their first public appearance in February 1843 in a New York City theater. Hollywood affirmed the use of blackface. Other just MINDLESSLY followed not realizing the underlying implications.
Blackface performers are, “…the filthy scum of white society, who have stolen from us a complexion denied them by nature, in which to make money, and pander to the corrupt taste of their white fellow citizens.” — Frederick Douglass
No one cared. Why? Because in addition to the message Blackface performers made money and that is what Hollywood is all about. [Link]
In imposing the Common Core Standards and the aligned Assessments on the states, the Federal government is violating three federal statutes
20 USC § 1232a (Prohibition against Federal Control of Education), 20 USC § 3403b (Relationship with States: Curriculum, Admin, & personnel), 20 USC 7907a (General – Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to authorize an officer or employee of the Federal Government, including through a grant, contract, or cooperative agreement, to mandate, direct, or control a State, local educational agency, or school’s curriculum, program of instruction, or allocation of State or local resources, or mandate a State or any subdivision thereof to spend any funds or incur any costs not paid for under this chapter), & has put America on the road to a National Curriculum with respect to the RTTT/Common Core scheme. These standards and the tests will ultimately direct the course of Elementary & Secondary study in the 46 states who took it, running the risk that states will become little more than administrative agents for a National K-12 program and raising a fundamental question about whether the department is exceeding its statutory boundaries.”
Robert S. Itel, former counsel deputy general & Kent D. Talbert, former counsel general, Dept. of Education 2008-2009
Recently Gov Ron DeSantis signed an Executive Order for the first step to eliminate Communist Core in Florida. Did you listen to SOTU address? President Trump said, “America will NEVER be a socialist country.” If we do not get the socialist/globalist training/education our of our schools, WE WILL be a socialist country. Our children will never know freedom. You Rock Florida but our job has just begun. Please read these articles and make sure Gov DeSantis and Comm Corcoran (and your legislators) know the truth behind Common/Communist Core. Sign the petition to alert your representative…
Is America worth saving? Make sure Gov DeSantis, Comm Corcoran and your Rep know the truth. Share and forward.
If you don’t live in Florida start an Alliance in your state.
“A liberal’s paradise would be a place where everybody has guaranteed employment, free comprehensive healthcare, free education, free food, free housing, free clothing, free utilities, and only law enforcement has guns.”
And believe it or not, such a place does indeed already exist: It’s called Prison. Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Phoenix
Special Thank you to Charlotte Iserbyt, Diane Kepus, Karen Bracken, Neil Ric and Debbie Gunnoe for your tireless research effort to bring out the truth.
