IBO - Anti-Christian Education Program Implemented in Arkansas by SB1054 of 2005

It was slipped through the legislature with not one legislator voting against it and probably less than 5% of legislators know it has been implemented
It is being implemented in Jonesboro, Arkansas as an elementary magnet school
It has already been implemented at Springdale, Hot Springs, and North Little Rock

So What is IBO? IBO stands for International Baccalaureate Organization. " School board members in a Minnesota district call it anti-American and anti-Christian. In New Jersey, members of one school board argue it's a waste of money. Now, a suburban Pittsburgh school district is abolishing it over questions of politics and cost" 1

Critics argue that IB's multicultural themes promote values that conflict with traditional Judeo-Christian values. One teachers objects to the program because of IBO's endorsement of the Earth Charter which calls for sustainability of the Earth through, among other things, responsible reproduction and wealth distribution. Many opponents have called it Marxist.2

Jeanne Geiger, an outspoken critic of the program in Reston, Va., wrote to a local newspaper: "Administrators do not tell you that the current IB program for ages 3 through grade 12 promotes socialism, disarmament, radical environmentalism and moral relativism, while attempting to undermine Christian religious values and national sovereignty." 3

IBO is a very expensive controversial educational program. One organization has estimated that it "costs taxpayers about $200,000 per year over regular school expenses to have the IB program in a school. 4

It is often substituted for advanced placement courses that one critic describes this way: "No longer are children learning the difference between capitalism and socialism. No longer are children being taught why the United States became the most powerful economic engine the world has ever known. Instead, they are being taught that with less than 5 percent of the world's population, the U.S. uses 25 percent of the world's resources and produces 25 percent of the world's pollution.5

"They are being taught that the U.S. is the No. 1 terrorist nation. They are being taught that the rest of the world is mired in poverty because of the greedy capitalists in the United States." IBO is also referred to as social engineering." 6

International Baccalaureate Organization (also known as IB, IBO, IBP, MYP, ISM - MYP) is a United Nations educational program located in Geneva, Switzerland. IBO "has endorsed the Earth Charter – an earth-centered collection of global principles which honor global political-ethical-moral and spiritual unification. Some, such as Mikhail Gorbachev, have gone so far as to compare the Earth Charter with 'those 10 or 15 Commandments which we all know about...those famous testaments...'" 7

Even more reason for parents to homeschool their children. They will get a much better education by doing that than they will in the socialist run public schools in this state and in the country.

The "Theory of Knowledge" course is just a whitewashed form of Evolutionary Epistemology

"Theory of Knowledge" is far more malignant and covert method of indoctrination than any currently in the Public Schools. It is foundational in twisting a childs understanding of the world into a pattern of eastern thought rather than the western (Judeo-Christian) patterns of thought. It creates a situtation where it is very difficult for a child to even think in Christian ways.

This program sounds like the Governor's School to me. I remember Hillary Clinton saying that the Governor's school was going to be the model for the rest of the public schools. This looks like this is it to me.

The Southern Baptists are talking about asking their members to withdraw from the public schools. Looks like that time is here, but we must also fight. Otherwise they will take over the private and home schools after they get total control of the public schools. Our kids will then probably wind up in concentration camps; but more than likely so will the liberals becasue our country will fall, and we we all be like the Iraqi people who have been enslaved for decades now.

Let Beebe get his filthy hands on this program and it will be in every public school in the state. Beebe and company would just LOVE to implement socialism in the state....and then, of course, shut the small schools down in favor of bigger ones so it will be easier to socialize all the kids in Arkansas public schools.

8:34 - You are exactly right. Some states even have it as law that parents have teaching degrees before they are allowed to homeschool their children. Christians do need to leave the public schools, but we do need to fight from outside those institutions. If we let them have control without a fight, the next thing WILL be the government having control of both the private AND homeschools.
