The charter of the National

the quality of our system and to make

into thinking that our system was
failing and that it must be

The final interlocking piece of this package
of reforms was proposed in Congress as

purpose of this analysis is to once
again sound the alarm.
We are “A Nation
At Risk’ and we must halt 'reforms'
because they are 'reforming' right into
a system of totalitarian control -
fascist-communist control. What began as a federal system of
statistics for analyzing the differences
between schools has morphed into a
monster system of control that would
make Marx, Engles and J.Edgar Hoover
proud. It would make FBI files
unnecessary - the government system of
“Human Resource Management” would
have everything about a ‘human
resource” that anybody would ever want
to know - and it would be available to
anybody the government decides has a
'need to know' - which includes
impetus for sounding the alarm is that
Tancredo’s bill contains language to
create a national jobs data bank,
“America’s Job Bank”. This

workers” giving the Secretary of Labor
the power to control the inflow of
‘guest workers’ - balancing them
with the domestic supply of labor.
This legislation also gives the
Secretary of Labor the authority to
determine the necessity for foreign
labor based on wage rates for a
particular job skill.
other words, it gives the Secretary of
Labor the power to control supply and
demand - including the price of labor -
over the entire U.S. Labor Market.
Let me repeat, It
gives the Secretary of Labor the power
to control supply and demand - including
the price of labor - over the entire

Let that sink in.
what does government control of the
labor market - hence the economy - have
to do with education reform? To understand the linkage, one must go back to the report,
“A Nation At Risk” and follow the

us right into a communist model of

biggest irony of all -
If an unfriendly foreign power had
attempted to impose on America the
mediocre educational performance that
exists today, we might well have viewed
it as an act of war. As
it stands, we have allowed this to
happen to ourselves. We have even
squandered the gains in student
achievement made in the wake of the
Sputnik challenge. Moreover, we have
dismantled essential support systems
which helped make those gains possible. We have, in effect, been committing an act of unthinking,
unilateral educational disarmament.
Since the time of the
writing of this report, the quality of
education has nose-dived.
Therefore, it must be concluded
that an unfriendly foreign power has in
fact, imposed a mediocre system of
education on the American people.
Worse still is that it is a
control system to manage our economy
though the control of ‘human
resources’ or labor.
If people really understood what
has been done and why, they would indeed
consider it an act of war.
“We have, in effect, been
committing an act of unthinking,
unilateral educational disarmament”
for the last 22 years by supporting and
funding 'education reform'.
