This is problematic for those who value sexual fidelity, free enterprise, and family.
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is a key player in facilitating the global education movement that seeks to displace parents as the primary influencers of their children.
Fostering Socialistic 'Global Skills and Attitudes'What positions does the OECD promote? The OECD’s "The Future of Education and Skills, Education 2030" document (pdf), published in 2018, says, “Children entering school in 2018 ... will need to value common prosperity, sustainability, and well-being” above other concerns and that “curricula should continue to evolve, perhaps in radical ways” that “reflect evolving societal requirements.”
- Environmentalism focusing on “climate change and the depletion of natural resources [which] require urgent action and adaptation.”
- Economic change requiring “new economic, social and institutional models.”
- Social evolution arising from “cultural diversity.”
By its own admission, the OECD intends to foster widespread rethinking of the values that children learn in their families.
“Apart from examining the level of children’s socio-emotional skills, the study will gather information on their family, school, and community learning contexts, thus aiming to provide information about the conditions and practices that foster or hinder the development of these critical skills.”
The OECD intends to question children to uncover information about their private family life. This data can then be used to help global education monitors dissect how elements of a child’s family life foster or hinder the development of the socialistic “global skills and attitudes” the U.N. and the OECD wish to foster in children.
To Measure Attitudes or to Change Them?In 2012, OECD Director of Education and Skills Andreas Schleicher offered an example of how the OECD not only seeks to measure attitudes but to change them through data collection:
“Data transformed some of the beliefs and paradigms underlying German education. For example, traditionally, the education of the very young children was seen as the business of families, and you would have cases where women were seen as neglecting their family responsibilities when they sent their children to [preschool]. PISA has transformed that debate and pushed early childhood education right at the center of public policy in Germany,” he said in a 2012 TED talk.
Consider that carefully. Schleicher gives PISA and the OECD credit for changing Germany’s attitudes and policies regarding the education of very young children. Education of young children was previously seen as the purview of families, especially mothers. Now, thanks largely to PISA, the education of the very young in Germany is seen as a state responsibility. The OECD holds this up as a shining example of the fundamental change their assessments can bring to pass. And they're right.
- Disengage from federal and global educational funding;
- Re-localize control of school curricula;
- Expose the destructive and deadly legacy of socialist principles;
- Reassert nations’ rights to drive their own economic and environmental policies;
- Teach sexual fidelity and responsibility in the context of family formation;
- Promote family-based solutions to world problems.
Therefore, what we can't accomplish in public policy, we must undertake to accomplish in our homes and communities. In doing so, over time we will raise up a generation of patriots who understand history, value individual rights, prize economic autonomy, and embrace the family as the core of civilization.
These rising patriots will be prepared to defend the pillars of prosperous living and rebuild our society on truly sustainable grounds.
