"Two of the best places to get solid information on the schools in general and the International Baccalaureate Program in particular are these websites:
Both of these websites have articles on International Baccalaureate. Also, it's very important to understand the basis for wanting to make children into "citizens of the world" -- one of the stated goals of the International Baccalaureate program. That is, the goal of making them "citizens of the world" as opposed to "Americans." That is the real heart of the matter.
According to socialist theory, a person should direct their loyalties to the leader, the party, the political philosophy. All other loyalties should be eliminated. Thus, there should be no loyalty to God, to family, or to country. Those loyalties have to be eliminated in a socialist world. That's why socialist governments attack religion, the traditional patriarchal family structure, and the preservation of nations with actual real borders. Erasing our borders, promoting nontraditional family lifestyles (gay marriage, feminism, etc.), and attacking religion and religious values all help to lay the foundation for a socialist government.
As the Soviet Union expanded their borders during the 20th century, they continuously tried to blend the nations they captured into a single nation. They tried to erase the cultures of the nations they captured. In schools, children were given the model of the "new Soviet man" -- a handsome, appealing, international figure who the children were expected to use as their role model. This "new Soviet man" was, of course, a total socialist in his outlook. The goal was to indoctrinate the children with this appealing, alluring model and turn them into good little socialists.
IB works the same way. The American culture is built on the ideas of independence, self-responsibility, rugged individualism, self-sufficiency, religious freedom and tolerance, and devotion to family. Our nation is based on self-government -- that power comes from the people and that the government has limited powers which were delegated to it by the people. We love our country because under our Constitution, these ideals are protected. IB seeks to erase the uniquely American aspects of our culture and breed good little socialists instead -- that is, good little socialists who will embrace the ideals of the United Nations, which is based on the state as the center of power with individuals as mere pawns of the state..
I would recommend that you order two books and a DVD from Edwatch:
America's Schools: the Battleground for Freedom, Fed Ed: The New Federal Curriculum, and How It's Enforced International Education -- Presentation to the Arizona State Senate in 2007 (DVD)
Also, be sure you have a copy of The Naked Communist by Cleon Skousen. It is a reference book that you will use over and over again. The best book I have found for understanding the basic principles of communism and socialism. Having an understanding of Communism -- and knowing the key differences between communism and our American Constitutional form of government -- will help you to recognize the bad aspects of the International Baccalaureate program."
TJ - I look forward to your presentation Tuesday.
