Seeking Out the Truth in Education Reform

The following is a quote from The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, an excellent book by Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, former Senior Policy Advisor in the U.S. Department of Education:
Dr. Shirley McCune, Project Director for the Mid-Continent Regional Education Laboratory (McREL) wrote The Light Shall Set You Free (Athena Publishing, Alpha Connection: Santa Fe, New Mexico, 1996), in which she revealed her theological connections with New Age guru Alice Bailey. Excerpts from McCune's book underscore the fact that the U.S. Taxpayer is paying the salaries of social engineers with bizarre beliefs who are wreaking havoc in curriculum development and organizational restructuring of the nation's schools. Excerpts follow:
Those who journey into the Light will move with us in the ethers to live in the Fifth Dimension and above. Those who choose to to stay in the lower vibrations will be provided for accordingly also. The Earth will be cleansed in the next decade for the purification must be complete.... The way to the Light is to increase your vibratory frequency.... This point of Light stimulates each breath we take.... The Light is within.... This tremendous source of power can be accessed only by going within the mind's eye and by listening to the silence.... This path requires a whole new curriculum and set of guidelines to describe our existence.... The Light is within us always, silently waiting to be discovered, to show us the way back to our divinity.... Each individual is actually a co-creator with the Devine.... The date for entry into the Fifth Dimension is scheduled for the year 2012, says Kuthum [An alleged "ascended master" who supposedly transmitted his ideas to Madame Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society and author of The Secret Doctrine and Isis Unveiled, ed.]....

...We are entering the Age of Aquarius.... The goal for all of humanity who will enter the new millenium is to become androgynous.... Educational systems, businesses, political structures, and governments all built on self-serving principles, for example, are crumbling, only to be re-born through tremendous pain into higher forms. Thus, we are witnessing "the end of the world" and we do not even recognize what we see. Standing on the threshold of the Aquarian Age... we can align our bodies and our behaviors to create harmony and consistency with the God within us.

Wow, I think I want some of whatever she's been smoking!

Want to venture a guess as to where Dr. Shirley McCune works now??

She's on the staff of Terry Bergeson, Washington State's Superintendent of Public Instruction, helping to set the direction of our schools and curriculum for the future.
