OBE & CHOICE
:
The Fatal Flaw In Compromise

Several Christian leaders are find-
ing "common ground" with Out-come-Based Education
. But, theirfocus is on the content when the realproblem is the method!
W
en key sociologists/educrats
invite their opposition to dia-
logue over so-called "educa-tional controversies," you can
be sure something is not quite right. Recently,according to a report entitled "Education `PeaceTalks' begin" in the May 17, 1994 issue of
The
Denver Post
:
Some of the most outspoken national
opponents and proponents of outcome-
based education have already met infor-
mally in Denver to identify common
concerns
..
Spady and members of his High SuccessNetwork consulting firm met
..
. with Bob
Simonds, national president of Citizens for
Excellence in Education
..
. also presentwere representatives of Focus on the Fam-
ily
..
. `We're extending the olive branch,'said Marjorie Ledell, coordinator of com-
munications and policy for Spady's High
Success Network
...
Spady says he's willing to talk about`OBE choice,' which would put stress onletting parents in their own communities
decide on the type of outcomes they want
.
Simonds is quoted as being "interested in
talking about `enhanced OBE', which is content-
based-strong on math, science, English, but
not concerned with `attitudes, values
."
Arnold Burron, professor of education at the
University of Northern Colorado and a tradi-tionalist Christian who works closely with Bob
Simonds, called the meeting "a significant step
forward." Amy Stephens, representing JamesDobson's Focus on the Family, wisely reservedjudgment on what, if any, steps could be taken
to reconcile the positions help by the two oppos-ing sides
.
No Compromise Possible
Alarm bells should be going off across thenation. There can be
no
compromise on this
issue
. As outrageous as the outcomes are (toquote no less an education authority than AlShanker, President of the American Federationof Teachers), outcomes in the values domain-which have been bad for as long as this authorcan recall-can always be changed to suit thewhims of the moment (political/religious/eco-nomic, etc
.)
. This is about to happen if Spady,
Simonds, et
. al
. come to some sort of a "compro-
mise" on OBE
.
What the social engineers will
not
allow to be
compromised, however, is the mastery learn-ing/OBE method to which UNESCO, and the U
.S
.
Department of Education have been committed
for at least 25 years, according to Professor S
.
Alan Cohen of the University of San Francisco
.
Secretaries Terrell Bell, William Bennett, Lamar
Alexander, and Richard Riley, have all sup-ported OBE mastery learning with grants to de-velop and implement it nationwide
.
Why? Because the bottom line, as usual, is
global profits, and there is no more effective way
to "train" workers than using mastery learn-ing/programmed learning which is based on Ivan
Pavlov's animal psychology and the late Harvard
Professor B
.F
. Skinner's behavior modificationtechniques
. That is, the operant conditioning,
stimulus-response type techniques of the knee-
jerk, rat lab, pigeon training
. "Sit, Fido"
. "Stay"
.
Pop a biscuit in his mouth and move on to the
next skill-type education
