As high school and college students return to class this fall, another cycle of Model United Nations conferences will be starting. The mock United Nations has become a very popular event, involving over 50,000 students yearly in over 2,000 U.S. schools. At these schools, the Model U.N. program introduces young Americans to the U.N., one of the world's most important multinational bodies. Yet there is considerable evidence that the young participants in the program are not being taught the full truth about the U.N., its role in the world, or its impact on the United States. Instead, students are being led to believe that the structure, practices, and issues of the U.N. accurately reflect global reality. The students are not being taught that on many key issues the U.N. distorts reality and even exacerbates tensions. The fact that many U.S. public schools are not presenting a balanced picture of the U.N. is very serious. It raises questions about how carefully parents andbschool officials monitor what takes place in their schools' Model U.N projects.
|Pg 4 - There is a core curriculum for the Model U.N. simulation, though it is not well advertised. It is the same "curriculum" used at the U.N. itself--the "New International Economic Order." NIEO is based on the thesis that the capitalist nations of the world are continuing the colonial policies of the 19th century through the free market economy and through transnational corporations and thus are exploiting the poor nations. The NIEO "solution" to this "exploitation" is the massive redistribution of wealth from the developed nations to the Third World. The administration of this wealth transfer is meant to take place through the U.N. specialized agencies.|

Recently my child experienced firsthand the kind of victim disarmament indoctrination America's public school system is teaching our children.
The school went on lockdown mode without even bothering to inform me, her parent, and while it turned out to be nothing at all, the impression left on my child that day will not soon be forgotten.
In 2005, a federal court upheld that our nation's public schools trump parent rights:
"Parents and politicians alike were shocked when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled on Nov. 2 that parents' fundamental right to control the upbringing of their children 'does not extend beyond the threshold of the school door,' and that a public school has the right to provide its students with 'whatever information it wishes to provide, sexual or otherwise.'"
The court went on to clarify:
"Parents have no due process or privacy right to override the determinations of public schools as to the information to which their children will be exposed."
What this decision essentially says is that, as a parent, your rights to control what your children are being taught in this country end at the school door.
