An absolute eye-opener for parents or grandparents!
Outcome-Based Education focuses on what the student is, not on what he knows. It is designed for every child to FEEL successful ("Gwinnett Organizing Around Learner Success") in school although he might not BE successful. Teachers become facilitators, coaches, or monitors (Designing Successful Learning Teacher Manual, "Performance Assessment Rationale," Gwinnett County, Georgia.) Academic emphasis is minimal. OBE focuses on changing specific complex behaviors (Dr. Barbara Kapinus, Georgia Lieutenant Governor's OBE Conference, May 13, 1993), to conform to predetermined outcomes. Outcomes control curriculum design. Designing curriculum to produce the desired outcomes is called "designing down" (Designing Successful Learning, "Putting all Together, Designing Down").
OBE's mission is to transform our culture by social engineering through psychological manipulation of behavior. That's why it's tried and tried again. Education is NOT the goal of OBE. The goal is to restructure society by restructuring education, and in that sense OBE IS successful. If you need confirmation that society is being restructured, simply compare today's education and morality to those of yesteryear when 90% of Americans were literate and morals were absolute.
This presentation is a must-have to understand the objectives of the present-day school system...and it's not to educate your kids!! Moderated by John Loeffler, four educators walk through what they discovered was going on behind the scenes at the highest levels of government. An eye-opener, to say the least. Especially since it was taped in 1995!
