Charlotte Iserbyt is the consummate whistleblower! Iserbyt served as Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education, during the first Reagan Administration, where she first blew the whistle on a major technology initiative which would control curriculum in America's classrooms. Iserbyt is a former school board director in Camden, Maine and was co-founder and research analyst of Guardians of Education for Maine (GEM) from 1978 to 2000. She has also served in the American Red Cross on Guam and Japan during the Korean War, and in the United States Foreign Service in Belgium and in the Republic of South Africa. Iserbyt is a speaker and writer, best known for her 1985 booklet Back to Basics Reform or OBE: Skinnerian International Curriculum and her 1989 pamphlet Soviets in the Classroom: America's Latest Education Fad which covered the details of the U.S.-Soviet and Carnegie-Soviet Education Agreements which remain in effect to this day. She is a freelance writer and has had artiles published in Human Events, The Washington Times, The Bangor Daily News, and included in the record of Congressional hearings.
California notes this book event:
Charlotte Iserbyt's latest book has been released, and pre orders are currently being shipped from the printer. It is already showing up available from secondary sources through amazon.com. There is a good blurb about the revised and updated new book on the amazon site attached. It can also be ordered from Charlotte (1-207-737-4730).
The new chapter which chronicles events about education since the original book published in 1999 until 2011, contains a bit of my contribution.
