When your children or grandchildren venture off to school in America, someday soon, most likely, their education curricula will be developed not by a state education association, or even by the National Education Association (NEA).  Rather, they will be developed by the United Nations — specifically, their education arm, United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).  This is an educational organization that could not only threaten the sovereignty of America, but indoctrinate our unsuspecting children with a dangerous progressive ideology — an ideology in which children are no longer taught that America is the land of the free and home of the brave or the right to freedom of worship.  Their agenda is to teach every child in the world a universal education curriculum compromising Common Core Standards.  Common Core Standards “provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.  The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.”

While many in the education community view these new global standards as an answer to our educational woes, some do not.

Many are concerned that the Common Core Standards, once successfully implemented, will provide unfettered access of our educational system by the United Nations. Some textbooks and curricula for our public schools have already been written by UNESCO and the International Baccalaureate program that is currently in many school districts across the United States. Grabbing additional access is a natural next step. Once they write the curricula, they must have authority to develop all testing tools. They will decide who becomes a teacher and what preparation will be provided for that teacher. The International Baccalaureate curriculum upsets parents and teachers because the focus includes sustainable development, abortion rights, gay marriage, universal disarmament and social justice curricula.

The problem with the Common Core Standards is not that they promote reading, writing, and arithmetic; it is the added dangerous ideologies they would like to teach our children — their agenda of teaching social justice, abortion rights, population control, environmentalism, and gay marriage.  The easiest way to implant their ideologies into the unsuspecting minds of our youngest is not only to educate America’s children in grades K-12, but to mandate compulsory education for children ages 0-5 in a program known as early education.  According to UNESCO’s website, “UNESCO advocates for Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) programs that attend to health, nutrition, security and learning and which provide for children’s holistic development. It organized the first World Conference on ECCE in September 2010, which culminated in the adoption of a global action agenda for ECCE called Moscow Framework for Action and Cooperation: Harnessing the Wealth of Nations.  The United Nations believes we should have a uniform global educational system and that children even from birth should have ‘rights’ to an early education.”
