A brief history of US education
...This plan is embodied in programs like the New Standards Project, which calls for vocational training, Goals 2000, the Title One Reauthorization Bill, and School to Work Legislation, which calls for job-oriented college training. The legal mechanisms to put such a plan into place are found primarily in two relatively recent pieces of legislation: HR1617, which runs to about 1000 pages, and Senate 143. If one wishes to plow through their legalistic jargon, the follow five step program will emerge:
1) All students will be evaluated according to national benchmarks, mapping individual psychological potentials for jobs;
2) Students will be trained only for jobs, and the government will decide all societal needs and determine quotas;
3) A structure of mastery certificates will be established to control college entrance and to address the problem of overtraining;
4) Students and jobs will be forced together by a system of rewards and punishments, utilizing the techniques of behavioral psychology;
5) Individuals will be tracked lifelong through a computer database, incorporating birth, medical, school, work, police and any other records into a dossier for the necessary behavioral evaluations.
