This plan is not local but is international in scope and design. It is antithetical to the American system and the Constitutional mandate to produce a well-educated citizenry schooled in American history and republican principles of government. This redesign plan is based on the Marxist-Leninist philosophy of human resource development as documented by the Carl Perkins grants for School-to-Work.
Due to overwhelming public opposition to the high school redesign, the Board of Education modified their plan somewhat, but the original agenda is still in place because it is a national agenda - not local. It became a national program during the Clinton administration under the direction of Marc Tucker with the National Center for Education and the Economy (NCEE). The education establishment has been implementing it incrementally ever since.
The revised redesign calls for rigorous math and science that further eliminates electives like Music that are important to students. The grants and scholarships for increased math and science have federal strings attached that serve to further push the agenda.
Idaho Eagle Forum opposes the rules for High School Redesign and the restructuring of the schools for the ‘seamless web’ of School-To-Work, Human Resource Development, integrated Medical and Social Services, data profiling and constant assessments, tracking and reporting.
