The U.S. Department of Educations report, Succeeding Globally Through International Education and Engagement tries to show how American students will gain more international experience. The report features six quotes by the department secretary Arne Duncan, with phrases such as recipe for protectionism and global strife, grow the pie for all or compassionate neighbors and global society. Here are the six quotes, with the corresponding dates, in full:
The economic future of the United States rests not only on its ability to strengthen our education system but also on citizens in other nations raising their living standards. Thinking of the future as a contest among nations vying for larger pieces of a finite economic pie is a recipe for protectionism and global strife. Expanding educational attainment everywhere is the best way to grow the pie for all. March 3, 2011 We must focus on integrating international perspectives into our classrooms. It is through education and exchange that we become better collaborators, competitors and compassionate neighbors in this global society. November 14, 2011 To be on track today for college and careers, students need the 21st century skills that are so vital to success in the global economy. They need to show that they can analyze and solve complex problems, communicate clearly, synthesize information, apply knowledge, and generalize learning to other settings. March 14, 2012 America is too far behind other countries in terms of math and science. Top students from around the world are more likely to be bilingual or even trilingual than our children.

Shoot to kill.
Keeping this pig alive is one of the great triumphs of the GOPe over conservatives.
A leftist’s dream. Make the world as stupid as they’ve made Americans.
My college prof hubby complained he just had to sit through these ‘dev meetings’ (globalization) for the beginning fall quarter. I explained this to him. He poo-poo’d me. Thanks for the ammo. ;)
never will I forget the time I asked a Dept of Education careerist where he sent his kids to school. His answer? “We homeschool.”
I have wondered about the Department of Education.
The Department of Education was created in 1979. Jimmy Carter pulled education out of the old department of Health, Education, and Welfare. Education was important enough to be its own cabinet level department we were told.
My question is — is the state of public education in this country better because we have a cabinet level department dedicated to education??? Has this department helped public schools student achievement? Has this department achieved the goals set out for that department all those years ago???
Apparently, the “Cocktail Hour” starts very early at the Department of Education.
Even if it were better (it obviously isn’t) it would still be unconstitutional. Education is NOT one of the enumerated powers given to the feds.
Globalization and diversity are two facades used by the new world order bunch. Neither accomplish their purported tasks unless allowed to occur naturally in a true free market system. I will argue that forced diversity hurts businesses by forcing unqualified hiring. Forced globalization destroys countries (ala our border and manufacturing industry).
The Current FReepathon Pays For The Current Quarter's Expenses?
One worlders Agenda 21 stuff...fer sure!
Global Common Core.
There is a connection with technology, common core and converting to Islam:
Common Core The Qatar Connection: A Wahhabi State Skypes With Your Children Connect All Schools
It is already happening in TN
Common Core Lesson Plans: A call to Jihad, Converting to Islam, 5 Pillars of Islam, submitting to the Will of Allah
Civilization Jihad Hits Home (my backyard, literally)
Finite pie. There’s liberal thinking for you.
well, yeah. They’re baking it, or half baking it.
The commissioner of public education for the state of NY’s kid is exempt from common core. He goes to private school.
