Allen Quist, the author of the books FedEd: The New Federal Curriculum and How It's Enforced and America's Schools: The Battleground for Freedom, will make a luncheon presentation to Congressional members, staff and other groups about the Federal Curriculum and about proposed legislation to rein it in.

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 Freedom in 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.
