If you think racial profiling is problematic, just wait until you understand criminal profiling… of school children based on grades plus psychographic and demographic factors. Meddling with school records is apparently OK because it is done by Technocrats who, after all, think that all answers to society’s problems can be solved by them.
Almost ninety percent of college students freak out if they are separated from their smart phones. Psychologists have standardized and profiled the condition as “nomophobia”, or No Mobile Phone Phobia”. Adults and younger children are just as addicted to smart phones as students, however.
Digital tyranny is more contagious than COVID-19 as Albion College announces that all students will be tracked digitally, confined to the campus and subject to specimen collection at any time. Students can be expelled for violations.
In the wake of schools being shut down over COVID-19, Technocrats in the UK decided to use AI to grade students for the annual “results day.” Wired reports that “teachers are aghast at the mess that’s been allowed to unfold.”
When schools are closed, children at home increasingly turn to electronic screens to be entertained. The risk to younger children is well documented as it stunts mental development. Even the WHO recommends only 30 minutes per day of screen time for toddlers.
In 1934, the Technocracy movement categorized education as a “continental system of human conditioning.” Today’s Technocrats think in exactly the same way as they mold young brains into the predetermined image of model workers.
To global-minded Technocrats, children are the window into the homes of citizens. Government schools are vulnerable to a massive wave of contact tracing that could affect millions of parents forced into quarantine or isolation.
Common Core State Standards curriculum were created and owned by two private non-profit organizations, both of which were heavily funded and influenced by Bill Gates of vaccine fame. CCSS has failed miserably and an entire generation has been mentally crippled.
The CFR’s education policies are virtually identical to historic Technocracy that wanted to develop education as a “continental system of human conditioning.” This is the same mentality that produced Alphas, Betas and Deltas in Huxley’s Brave New World.
Michael Crow is a consummate Technocrat who has created a new kind of educational experience at ASU, one that is measured by its social impact rather than traditional statistics like awards or intellectual rigor.
