The above article prompted me to send the following email to the Editor of the New Jersey Star Ledger:
Hello, from Charlotte Iserbyt in Maine:
Don’t know where Mulshine is now. However, he sure saw the future 22 years ago. If your paper has his address, please forward this to him!
I am the author of the deliberate dumbing down of america, 1999, now out of print but available as a PDF at my website deliberatedumbingdown.com
A Brazilian publisher has recently translated my book into Portuguese. Book was pretty much boycotted in USA!
My parents lived in Gladstone for thirty years.
I LOVE NEW JERSEY!
Happy New Year!
Following is (1998 Newark, NJ Star Ledger) Paul Mulshine’s warning regarding workforce training agenda TWENTY-TWO YEARS AGO.
Good for Mulshine. Nobody listened to even good guys in major media. Whatever lead us to believe Americans would listen to us KOOK parents/researchers?
“COMING SOON TO A SCHOOL NEAR YOU: FORCED LABOR” BY PAUL MULSHINE, COLUMNIST, was originally published in the November 29, 1998 issue of the Newark, New Jersey Star-Ledger.
Excerpts from Mulshine’s article:
“Imagine a state that uses its school system not to produce independent-minded, broadly educated citizens, but compliant workers trained to behave. A state where, in their early teens, children are forced to make a lifelong decision from 14 government-sanctioned career possibilities with such depressing titles as “waste management,” “administrative services” and “manufacturing, installation and repair.” A state where students in the government schools are forced to spend one day a week toiling in menial labor. The old Soviet Union? China? Nope. New Jersey.”
I wish I were making this up. But I’m not. This is a fair summation—minus the jargon— of the School-to-Work program that the state is planning to impose on us next year.
