“While we allowed ourselves to be pre-occupied and entertained, while we became lazy and apathetic and allowed ourselves to be drawn into fictional political divides, our own government divided our country up, sold us off and are on the verge of the final coup’ which will render us without land, freedom, wealth or country; or at the very least a country to call our own. “

 National security; this term has come to mean the terrorizing of legal US citizens by our own government. Any one or all of several spy agencies supposedly existing to protect us from terrorists, have made it evident that, “we the people” are the focus of their efforts.  When speaking of national security I believe it is imperative to understand what that term in reality means:

National security is the protection of the corporate federal government, and by extension multi-national corporations that benefit from their unfettered access to the government, from the people of the (50) sovereign but united states.  We the people are viewed as the greatest threat to a malevolent government and its partnering corporations and the expansion of what is becoming a full blown police state.  The security the government desires is not from foreign terrorists, but rather, from us. 

By now, any hopes any of us had that Obama was going to turn the tide, make things better for the country, or, that he would reverse the egregious laws passed by the neo-cons and executive orders issued by Bush the Dolt, have dissipated.  Not only has Obama not undone the damage, he has carried it forward and continues the programs and plans unlawfully put in place by the previous administration and started a few of his own.  We are in the end phase of a twenty year cycle of systematic deconstruction of the united States. 

Laying the groundwork for programs to come was of course, the Bush 1 Executive Order of 1992, #12803.  This executive order put the infrastructure of the states up for sale to anyone and everyone and began the wholesale selling off of our lands and structures to non-US interests.  More

UNESCO….An experiment in global education has vague answers and even less authority.

The Question:

After viewing the vast amount of plans for education on your website I have an honest question for UNESCO about UNESCO policies and procedures.

I am of the understanding that the UN and UNESCO and all the other UN agencies are merely a place where countries meet to talk.

I am of the understanding they are not any kind of government in and of themselves. Therefore, I am wondering how UNESCO see themselves as the authority by which our educational standards are set and mandated in for example, the USA, which is a free country?

In other words, what gives UNESCO the authority to control the curriculum of our US schools? My guess would be that UNESCO has NO authority to be influencing the USA schools and that teachers should not do things they know are wrong and are detrimental to a child’s mental health and learning.

 

Thank You.

The Answer:

 

UNESCO’s role is advisory. The plans and policies you can see on UNESCO’s website are collected and made public as part of UNESCO’s knowledge-sharing role. UNESCO functions as a laboratory of ideas and a standard- setter to forge universal agreements on emerging ethical issues.

  
The Organization also serves as a clearinghouse – for the dissemination and sharing of information and knowledge – while helping Member States to build their human and institutional capacities in diverse fields. In short, UNESCO promotes international co-operation among its Member States in the fields of education, science, culture and communication.

More specifically in the case of education UNESCO has a mandate to coordinate international partners, and monitor progress in countries and regions towards the implementation of six  internationally agreed goals to achieve education for all by 2015.  To do that it prepares the annual EFA Global Monitoring Report.

In the case of curriculum development UNESCO’s International Bureau of Education (IBE) provides technical assistance to countries. This service is provided upon request.

 For the question of teachers UNESCO alerts the world to the most serious issue facing the teaching profession today: the acute or impending shortage of qualified teachers. The growing demand for teachers caused by Education for All, combined with an aging

teacher population in developed countries, will create shortages of at least 15 million teachers in the next decade.

UNESCO also encourages Governments to use two international norms:

 
The 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers and the 1997 UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Higher-Education Teaching Personnel. They provide guidelines on how educational authorities, communities and teachers’ associations can improve teacher recruitment, training, working conditions, academic freedom, and security employment (including tenure).

I hope this helps

UNESCO is the driving force behind NCLB and a standardized global education that results in illiterate and uneducated students.  Another creation of the United Nations that has crept into our system with the intent to dumb down our young people.  Knowledge is power and UNESCO is determined that todays students have neither knowledge or power.
