Hillary Clinton Exposed
“Hillary Clinton Exposed”
By Donna Garner
[5.1.15 — As a Texas classroom teacher during the 80’s and 90’s, I walked through the Hillary Clinton/NCEE eras. This World Net Daily article gives further documentation about the damage that Hillary Clinton et al. have done and are still doing to our nation’s schools. It was Hillary’s philosophy of education (Type #2) that laid the groundwork for Obama’s takeover of the public schools by the federal government. It was Hillary and the NCEE (inspired by Saul Alinsky) that moved our schools from the Type #1 philosophy of education (traditional, knowledge-based, academic) over into the Type #2 philosophy of education (subjective, emphasis on emotions/opinions/personal beliefs, process more important than the right answer, social justice agenda). 11.4.13 – Type #1 vs. Type #2 chart: http://www.educationviews.org/comparison-types-education-type-1-traditional-vs-type-2-cscope-common-core/

“Hillary Partnered with Radical Alinsky Group”
By Aaron Klein
Excerpts from this article:
The exact nature and extent of Hillary Clinton’s relationship with radical community organizer Saul Alinsky has long been the subject of speculation and intrigue.
The interest has been largely fueled by Clinton’s suppressed and later released 92-page senior thesis for Wellesley College offering an extensive, largely positive critique of Alinsky and his work.
Now WND has found that long after Alinsky’s death in June 1972, a group Clinton co-chaired maintained a working relationship with Alinsky’s main community organizing outfit, the Industrial Areas Foundation, or IAF.
The partnership extended into the 1990s and yielded influence over the education policy of the Bill Clinton presidency, it can now be disclosed.
Founded by Alinsky in 1940 and run by him until his death, the IAF is a national community organizing network established to implement Alinsky’s expansive organizing agenda.
After Alinsky’s death, the IAF was taken over by his longtime associate and designated successor, Ed Chambers, who became the group’s executive director.
Dick Morris, a former top political adviser to Bill Clinton both as governor of Arkansas and as president, noted to WND that education reform “is the key issue Hillary Clinton used to propel herself independently to the forefront of Arkansas politics during Bill’s governorship.”
“The revelation of how closely linked her efforts were back in the 80s – and have been since – to an Alinsky radical front group is deeply disturbing and expands our understanding of Hillary’s fundamental radicalism and commitment to the new left of Saul Alinsky,” Morris said.
David Horowitz, whose parents were members of the Communist Party and who himself became a leader in the new left movement of the 1960s and 1970s before rejecting it, said the revelation is significant though not surprising.
“When radicals set out to fundamentally transform a society, the first institution they attack is the educational system which under their influence becomes a system of indoctrination in radical ideas,” he told WND.
The thread of Clinton’s ties to the IAF runs through the National Center on Education and the Economy, or NCEE, a group that helped Bill Clinton reform the U.S. education system.
In 1988, [Hillary] Clinton joined the board of the NCEE, which specializes in education reform. Until at least 1992, [Hillary] Clinton served as co-chairman of the NCEE’s Implementation Commission, the group tasked with implementing the NCEE’s education agenda.
To forge that agenda, the NCEE worked with several listed “partners,” most notably Alinsky’s IAF.
In 1989, the NCEE formed its Commission on the Skills of the American Workforce, which carried out an extensive analysis and survey of the U.S. education system, interviewing more than 2,000 people and hundreds of government and private agencies.
The NCEE’s commission in June 1990 released an extensive policy paper [SCANS] with specific recommendations on how to reform the national education system, with Hillary Clinton, then a partner in the Rose Law Firm, serving as co-chairman of the group tasked with carrying out the recommendations.
In 1992, the NCEE created an expansive proposal to the New American Schools Development Corporation, a nonprofit that teamed up with government agencies to reform U.S. schools.
Titled “Schools – and Systems – for the 21st Century,” the NCEE’s proposal listed the IAF as a partner.
“The Industrial Areas Foundation, perhaps the most experienced agency in the United States in the arena of community organizing, will help us think through the parent engagement and organizing issues,” it said.
Clinton implemented Alinsky education agenda?
As co-chairman of the NCEE’s commission to implement its agenda, which was formed with IAF input, Hillary Clinton co-authored an extensive article for the U.S. Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development.
The 1992 article was also authored by longtime Clinton adviser Ira Magaziner, who served on the NCEE’s board and currently works for the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
In their piece, Clinton and Magaziner highlighted the NCEE’s recommendations for how to reform America’s school system.
Many of the recommendations mirror some of the IAF’s longtime goals for education policy.
Alinsky’s IAF, for example, stated in a concept paper that “the entire community must be meaningfully involved in the public education system and held accountable for its results.”
As documented by Discover The Networks, one IAF paper on education calls for teachers and childcare workers to play a larger role in the upbringing of minors.
Stated the IAF: “Schools must be prepared to teach parents how to play a supportive role. In some cases this might mean making provision for parenting education. … Increasingly, schools will find it important to employ social workers who can coordinate necessary services and to intervene on behalf of a child in need. … Schools will need to help working families make provision for after-school childcare, and day care for pre-schoolers.”
To that end, Clinton and Magaziner touted their NCEE’s recommendation for a coalition of schools, the federal government and “local leadership to organize and oversee the new training-to-work transition programs and training systems.”
Clinton and Magaziner call for the establishment of a working group of “federal, state and national government leaders, with business, labor and education leaders” to begin discussions on the implementation of their recommendations.
The pair further advocated that states take responsibility for ensuring students meet proposed new education standards.
The IAF called for employers and taxpayers to help pay for new education standards.
Clinton and Magaziner proposed “all employers will invest at least 1 percent of their payroll for the education and training of their workers.”
Bill Clinton’s education reform
The NCEE yielded enormous influence during the Bill Clinton presidency.
The group was founded and is still run by longtime Clinton friend Marc Tucker. When Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas, he brought in Tucker to help oversee restructuring of the state’s educational system.
The NCEE website documents the central role the group played in reforming the education system under Bill Clinton’s two White House terms.
From 1992 to 2000, the website relates, “almost the entire agenda advanced in” the commission’s report, as co-chaired by Hillary Clinton, “was enacted into legislation by the Congress and signed into law by the President (Clinton), including the School-to-Work Act, the National Skill Standards Board, and the Workforce Investment Act.”
Continues the history section of the NCEE’s website: “At the Rose Garden ceremony at which President Clinton signed his signature education legislation, the President departed from his prepared remarks to single out the contribution made by NCEE to the national education reform agenda.”
“Subsequently, many states also enacted policies designed to support the recommendations made in the America’s Choice report,” the website stated.
