If you thought that the Profile of Learning was a radical take-over of
our schools, our children and our lives, then allow me to introduce you
to the mother of all radical agendas, this year's education agenda at our
state capitol. It makes the Profile of Learning look like child's
These are the "tions" that describe exactly the plan for our
schools, children, families, and child care providers. The Profile of
Learning took over fifteen years to develop in such a way that through
school and community partnerships every segment of our lives and the
lives of our children would be controlled by the government. When it was
defeated in Minnesota in 2003, it was a tragic blow to the societal
transformers who had so carefully constructed and coiffed it. NOW IT
Next year, it will be ten years since EdWatch (formerly the Maple River
Education Coalition) blew the whistle on the Profile of Learning. I am
sorry to say and madder than ever that we must sound the siren again!
Last time, they met us head-on with one encompassing piece of legislation
that authorized the Profile, because they expected no resistance and they
thought they were totally below the citizen radar. Were they ever
surprised and defeated when Minnesotans soon found out about it through
EdWatch. But, this time, the radicals are being much more careful.
They have regrouped using a different military strategy: divide and
Right now a new Goliath Profile of Learning is being piecemealed
together through our state Capitol with almost no resistance at all. It
is being done bill by bill. The parts move in and out of constantly
changing legislation. A few get amended out, then wait in the wings for
possible re-insertion later. Here are just some of the outrageous pieces
that have been introduced:
- Massive funding
of International Baccalaureate, the United Nations curriculum. One
example of the incredible indoctrination within IB is that
that terrorists can just as accurately be called freedom fighters.
infant-adult mental screening, including babies that may be
"behaviorally" unhealthy. This screening is creating many more
candidates for possible medication drugs that are killing 4 year
- Family by family
visitation to inspect parents and private homes.
- Government certification for only the public and private daycares
that incorporate a government preschool curriculum of indoctrination,
teaching 3 and 4 year olds about gender issues, diversity,
environmentalism and careers.
TEENSCREEN, a psychiatric screening program for all youth starting as
young as age 9, which increases the use of dangerous and controversial
medications. It is promoted by the same public relations firm
whose clients include the pharmaceutical companies. There are other
psychiatric screening programs that target poor and minority children.
- Comprehensive sex
education that makes it illegal to say anything critical about
the homosexual lifestyle.
- A system of AYP quotas (Adequate Yearly Progress) based on a
government curriculum, is set up for little preschoolers much like the No
Child Left Behind system for K-12. This is the Profile of Learning for
0-5 year olds.
- A new system of integrated governmental agencies set up to collect
data on and indoctrinate the parents of children while they are
still in the womb, to teach the states idea of properly raising
Some of the details in the curriculums of the programs offered by these
bills are so disgusting that it makes us physically ill to review them.
Many times, we have to stop, and take breaks and a deep breath to be able
to go on. They are just so bad! For instance, the
Sex Ed curriculum no longer allows the use of the word,
"intercourse" because it suggests male/female sex. There are
now three kinds of sex: anal, oral, and vaginal, and
"abstinence" means refraining from only vaginal sex. It would
be illegal to say anything derogatory or critical of the
homosexual lifestyle including the health consequences. It is to be
taught as "normal." You have all the details if you want to
read them for yourself on our website, if you can stomach them. Or you
can take our word for it, that there has NEVER been anything as bad as
the agenda that is being rolled out this legislative session!
TAX CUT RALLY,
EdWatch is fighting multiple fronts and we
really need people to take action.
Please join the Tax Cut Rally on April 14th at noon on the Capitol steps.
I will be the opening speaker at this rally to speak out with others
of our disgust at this bold attack on our families.
LOBBY DAY, April 26th
Please join us for the
Freedom and Family Coalition Lobby Day on Thursday, April
This is a battle that cannot be won swiftly. We must last longer than the
enemy. We have everything to lose!
Please listen. Do you feel safe? You shouldn't. Your family are
being attacked at the Capitol right now, and you aren't even there to
defend them. Your absence and your silence is what they are counting on
to end your control over your own family. Remember, they aren't
going to fight this one like they did the last, and meet us head on. They
plan to take us piece by piece, battle by battle, CHILD BY
We are going to be there every step of the way. We know that these bills
are a frontal attack on our families
