The Valley Education Corporation in Yellow Springs, Colorado, is making a big splash in educational circles. This multi million-dollar enterprise is starting K-12 charter schools throughout the USA. The cost for this program is expensive although the company is receiving high marks for the staff’s credentials and international awareness.

The program focuses on global educational standards and curriculum in order to develop global citizens. They emphasize the United Nations worldview, which has primary importance over any state educational standards. By making state standards subservient to the U.N. ideology, students will realize they are not citizens of a single country, like the United States, but citizens of a coming one-world government. This international awareness will prepare them to be “comrades” to create a peaceful, equitable redistribution of wealth and save the earth resources from capitalist exploitation.

There is a strong commitment to all human rights, which take precedence over any nation’s laws. Educational values are inculcated by integrating them into the subject areas. Students learn about the antiquated notions of the U.S. Constitution, judicial system and unnecessary borders of the USA. All national treaties and laws including those deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States would and should be subservient to those policies to those passed by the United Nations.

“Valley Ed. Corp.” is fictitious but the curriculum discussed above is not. This curriculum has been marketed in public schools as the “be all and end all” of high school diplomas: the International Baccalaureate Program. It has provoked controversy in many of the school districts that have adopted the program. Through taxpayer dollars our federal government is sanctioning the IB program although it is a direct attack on our Constitution and our laws.

Article 6, clause 2 in the Constitution of the United States unequivocally states the Constitution is the lynchpin of all of our laws of the land. “This Constitution and laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof, and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the Unites States, shall be the supreme law of the land, and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.”

European diplomats started the International Baccalaureate Organization, IBO, in 1968. These diplomats wanted a uniform education for their children in whatever nation they were assigned. However, in 1996 IBO unfortunately united with UNESCO, part of the United Nations. They formed an international education program that is dominated by a One-World-Government view. The U.N.’s radical leftist perspective of the world and its reputation for mismanaging its funding is a dubious organization to place above the leader of the free world.

Yet, the International Baccalaureate, IB Program, is being adopted by school districts throughout the USA. This course of study exists in 139 countries worldwide. The goal of the International Baccalaureate Organization is to impose global education standards and curriculum. This course of study is to produce global citizens, not citizens of America who are loyal to the principles of our founding documents: the Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

All students in the program are indoctrinated with the virtues of the United Nation’s treaties even though the United States of America has not ratified them. By endorsing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the IB program has agreed to promote the U.N.’s actions and treaties.

Such treaties include: the UN International Court Treaty, which would nullify the Supreme Court of the United States; the Bio Diversity program to redistribute financial aid from developed countries to underdeveloped countries while supposedly preserving genetic resources; the Rights of Children Treaty which strips many prerogatives from parents in raising their children; the Kyoto Treaty, whose focus is to reduce global warming by lowering carbon dioxide emissions in developed countries, and any other treaty approved by the UN. In reality, these treaties will end the sovereignty of America.

Our children in an IB program are being taught to see the world through the lens of the United Nations with a Marxist tint. The IB program is instilling moral values and ideals that are undermining our student’s positive attitudes and beliefs towards the United States.

The IB program is contrary to the interests of the United States. It is indoctrination under the guise of education. All American citizens should be alerted to the purpose of this program so our government officials can be held accountable. The IB program could continue in private schools as a program for children of diplomats or other families who agree with the utopian failures of the United Nations.

Our government has a vested interest in promoting programs where students are being taught the goodness, uniqueness and advantages of being an American citizen. Instead of being proud of our special heritage these students are being propagandized to despise their own country.

Under no circumstances should the IB program receive a single tax dollar.
