Writers of the federally funded Federal Curriculum, the Center for Civic
Education, tell us that "education for democracy in a sovereign
state, such as the United States of America" is a thing of the past
century that involved "mind-numbing inculcation of uncontested
political loyalty to the state and society." "We ought to think
now," they say, "about how to improve our current curricular
frameworks and standards for a world transformed by globally accepted and
internationally transcendent principles."
(The 21 st
-Century Civic Mission of Schools")
The Federal Curriculum undermines the principles of national sovereignty,
inalienable rights, self-evident truth, natural law, the 2nd amendment,
and the 10th amendment (which limits the authority of the federal
government). It elevates the United Nations, its Universal Declaration of
Human Rights, and global citizenship.
One of the goals of this Briefing is to promote the
Education Act -- draft legislation which, among other things,
would cut off federal funding for the Federal Curriculum. Federal funding
has meant federal control, resulting in the dumbing down of our history
and teaching that our rights are defined by the U.N. more importantly
than by our own Constitution.
