SIZZLING CHARTER SCHOOL DOCUMENTATION!
This post covers documentation regarding history of charter school implementation out of Minnesota in the early 1990s. This piece of documentation includes information compiled concerning: Skinnerian mastery learning, workforce training, Russian charter schools, the nest of Left and Right change agents pushing charters, Common Core, community education, Center for Economic Development, South Shore Charter Schools which requires home school reporting, every neocon you every heard of involved in charter schools, Minnesota Plan, Minnesota Business Roundtable, references to President Reagan, Schlafly, Jeanne Allen, Heritage, Garvey, Benjamin Bloom, Sizer, Goodlad and more!
The documentation can be found at the American Deception website, a 78-page booklet which had accompanied a 1995 video out of Canada, which is titled "Failing_Grades-1996" which begins with a letter to the late Bettye Lewis, Michigan researcher.

While speaking in Minnesota in the early 1990s I was invited to participate in a TV interview with Minnesota's new Superintendent of Instruction. When I asked him how Minnesota's State Department of Education, created by the Minnesota Legislature, could partner with the "private/corporate" Minnesota Business Roundtable, a partnership which resulted in the "Minnesota Plan" (covered in this blog post), he replied with a blank stare. I truly believe he, being new to the job, may not have known that such an unconstitutional activity had occurred! Or did he?
