Instead of learning about the constitutional rights and laws that established America as a free, sovereign, and secure nation, students in many U.S. public schools are learning how to delegate global issues before the United Nations.
The Model United Nations Program, which began over 60 years ago, only existed in ‘highly selective’ high schools and colleges until 2001, when the Annenberg Foundation awarded $5 million to the United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA) to create Global Classrooms, an initiative that expanded the Model UN program to urban middle and high schools across the country.
The Annenberg Foundation is the money behind the Annenberg Institute of School Reform, which works to expand the same secular education reform that President Obama supported through the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.
UNA-USA’s website says Global Classrooms teach students to be global citizens and describes the program as a “premiere international education program offering students valuable insight into the growing influence of globalization”.
Students, who participate as delegates from different countries, are instructed to research global issues, draft resolutions, and prepare to ‘represent’ at a Model UN conference.
Global Classrooms function in twenty-four major cities around the world and Model UN Conferences are held in nineteen different partner cities.
In addition to the Annenberg Foundation, UNA-USA’s Global Classrooms are sponsored by, among others, the U.S. Department of State, Newman’s Own Foundation, UPS, and top Common Core contributor, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The Central Texas Model United Nations program was founded at the University of Texas at Austin in 1994. Today, over four hundred high school students from across Texas compete in Model UN every year.
The World Affairs Council of Dallas/Forth Worth promotes both the Model UN program for middle and high school students provided through UNA-USA and a Model UN program for elementary school students called GEMUN (Global Elementary Model United Nations).
GEMUN, as shown in the video above, is sponsored by The Robert Muller School. The late Robert Muller, a former Assistant-Secretary-General of the United Nations, was an esoteric luciferian worshiper, who created his own curriculum and started a small group of schools in Arlington, Texas.
Muller’s Curriculum Manual states:
“The underlying philosophy upon which the Robert Muller School is based will be found in the teachings set forth in the books of Alice A. Bailey, by the Tibetan teacher, Djwhal Khul (published by Lucis Publishing Company)…”
Alice Bailey, founder of Lucifer Publishing Company (now called Lucis Trust), wrote more than twenty books, which she claims are the Theosophy teachings of Djwhal Khul, a disembodied Tibetan spirit master whom she channeled telepathically.
Both Bailey and Muller believed that Lucifer was an angel who fell to Earth, not because of sin or disgrace, but as a willing sacrifice to bring us enlightenment and wisdom.
GEMUN conferences focus on the Millennium Development Goals (Agenda 21) as evidenced by the front cover of the GEMUN Delegation Handbook.
In recent years, students from Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Texas and Virginia have participated in Texas-based GEMUN conferences.
With the help of the Robert Muller Schools, Seattle schools started its own inner city Elementary Model UN in 2003.
The central focus of Robert Muller Schools is ‘spiritual education’, specifically, the new age, worship the earth philosophy shared by the United Nations and taught in many IBO World Schools. These teachings can also be found in many of the thousands of schools using the Annenberg/Coalition of Essential Schools reform model. ‘Experiential learning’ and ‘expeditionary learning’ schools, often partner or affiliate schools in the Annenberg/CES network, have become hotbeds for this kind of religious indoctrination.
Pearson Education, an official partner in the creation of resources and assessments for the Common Core State Standards, actively supports the Model UN program.
In one of Pearson’s recent Vision for the Future of Learning videos, students are shown participating in global learning activities that appear to be part of a Model UN lesson.
The late Robert Muller said he dreamed that one day, “all schools of this Earth will teach about the United Nations, which is the young people’s greatest hope and will be their instrument of global action when they are grown up”.
Perhaps Common Core, with its anti-American, pro-globalism curriculum resources, was created to take us there.
