Neo-Conservatives Are Now Advocating Skinnerian Operant Conditioning!
But what have I been warning about all along? That the total plan for education reform must have this animal training method put in place for the lifelong global workforce training system! And not only have these conservative leaders not OPPOSED the use of this Skinnerian method on our children, but now they are openly SUPPORTING it!
This chart shows what Operant Conditioning does to children:
"operant behavior"... [was] popularized by B. F. Skinner.... Operant conditioning is distinguished from classical conditioning... in that operant conditioning deals with the reinforcement and punishment to change behavior. (Source)
Are parents supposed to consider that their children are nothing but animals to be trained, not educated, with no intellect, conscience or soul?
Or do most parents agree with C.S Lewis, the noted English writer, who said:
"If education is beaten by training, civilization dies," he (C.S. Lewis) writes, for the "lesson of history" is that "civilization is a rarity, attained with difficulty and easily lost. It is the liberal arts, not vocational raining, that preserves civilization by producing reasonable men and responsible citizens."And parents, why continue to trust these same highly-funded neoconservative leaders who are heading up the resistance to Communist Core, all the while putting in tax-funded school choice and charters with unelected boards (which is a Trojan Horse), which will give them Communist Core a la mode? With no elected boards to whom they can go to complain! Hear it from the horse's mouth. Read the transcript of Reed Hastings calling for an end to locally elected school board representatives and true "choice" in my blog post "Charters Kill True Choice."

Here is how Heartland Institute is advertising this new book REWARDS. Read carefully how this describes the methods of Operant Conditioning -- using the words "incentives" and "rewards." What is NOT mentioned is the "punishment" that you see on the graph above.
IF YOU REALLY LOVE YOUR CHILDREN, YOU WILL LISTEN NO MORE TO THE LIES BEING TOLD BY THESE NEOCONSERVATIVE GROUPS.
You need to do your own research! Here is a place to start:
The Heartland Institute is an American conservative and libertarian public policy think tank based in Chicago, which states that it advocates free market policies....
The Heartland Institute supports the availability of charter schools, providing education tax credits to attend private schools, expanding federal vouchers for low-income students to attend a public or private school of their family's choosing, and the Parent Trigger reform that started in California. The Heartland Institute argues that market reforms should be introduced into the public education system to increase competition and provide more options and greater choice for parents and their children.
