UN: Turning America's Students Into Good Global Citizens– – "Good Global Citizens" Not Good American Citizens; Are our kids being indoctrinated?
United Nations is actively trying to infiltrate American classrooms
with a curriculum designed to transform our students into better “global
The initiative, known as UN Global Classrooms,
is being marketed by the global government-in-waiting as a way to
inculcate students with the “valuable insight into the growing influence
One prong of this pernicious attack on our sovereignty is known as the Model United Nations.
many parents will know, the Model United Nations is a program created
by the UN to engage “middle school and high school students in an
exploration of current world issues through interactive simulations and
curricular materials. Global Classrooms cultivates literacy, life skills
and the attitudes necessary for active citizenship.”
citizenship, not American citizenship. If the two collide, there is
little doubt which allegiance the UN would prefer our young people to
declare. In 2008, the Model UN project was promoted in a statement made by the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in Los Angeles:
are here to step into the shoes of UN Ambassadors — to draft
resolutions, to plot strategy, to negotiate with your allies as well as
your adversaries. Your goal may be to resolve a conflict, to cope with a
natural disaster or to bring nations together on an issue like climate
change. You may be playing a role, but you are also preparing for life.
You are acting as global citizens.
emphasis is not on being good citizens of their home countries; rather
it is to diminish that concept in favor of the creation of global
citizens who will see participation in worldwide government as their
primary responsibility, regardless of national sovereignty or principles
of national law.
The United Nations is proud of
the proliferation of the Global Classroom program. On its website, it
crows about the growth it is enjoying around the world.
Over the past decade, Global Classrooms has held conferences in 24 major cities around the world,
helping bridge the gap in the Model UN community between experienced
programs and traditionally underserved public schools or schools new to
Model UN. Global Classrooms is distinguished by its teacher and student
resources that develop critical thinking, conflict resolution and
communication skills for middle and high school students.
detached observer of this plan could see in it the potential for harm
to the United Nations itself. Should students truly be trained to think
critically, resolve conflicts, and communicate effectively, would they
not be liable to see through the United Nations’ propaganda and perhaps
recognize the wisdom and virtue of our own Constitution and the writings
of those who created our own government?
the United Nations apparatchiks overseeing the Global Classroom/Model
UN initiative would be savvy to that possibility, as well, hence the
emphasis placed on “global citizenship” and the prompting to use these
skills to solve international crises. Is it too farfetched to believe
that one of these crises could include the resistance of the United
States to the implementation of United Nations climate-change
resolutions? Would the thousands of American students taught at the knee
of Ban Ki-moon and his associates be willing to use their academic
tools to dismantle the Constitution in favor of a more global-minded
The number of American educators and students participating in the UN Global Classroom
project is remarkable. Currently, students in school districts across
the country have active chapters of the United Nations Global Classroom
operating in their schools. The list is long but includes schools in New
York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Tampa, Minneapolis,
Miami, Boston, Birmingham, Phoenix, Denver, and Atlanta. The opening of
chapters in school districts in Detroit and New Orleans was announced at
a recent UN conference. The list of international partners is just as
Of course, the resources needed to
maintain these academic outposts of the United Nations don’t come cheap.
The list of global corporate partners that support this project is
impressive and not at all surprising to those familiar with the close
connection between big business and the push toward one world
Among others, the following enterprises with very familiar names have “generously supported” the spread of United Nations doctrine and devotion in the classrooms of the United States:

Goldman Sachs Foundation;
The New York Times Company Foundation;
United Parcel Service (UPS); and

week at the annual United Nations Association Leadership Conference,
Esther Brimmer, the Assistant Secretary of State at the Bureau of
International Organization Affairs, praised the UN Global Classroom team for its “terrific work” in helping American children learn about the “positive story of the UN’s vital work worldwide.”
The message is getting through to our kids.
One teenage participant at the annual Model United Nations Conference held last month in New York City lamented the difficulty she experienced
as an “ambassador” in getting around the roadblocks of national laws
often placed in the UN’s path toward establishing one world government.
Hiatt, 17, a student from New Hampshire, reported that her experience
in the Model United Nations had prompted her to choose to study
international relations in college so that she could be better able to
help the United Nations accomplish its goals.
her time participating in the Model UN program, Hiatt said, “It would
be good for more people to do it so they can be exposed to it and
realize how hard it is for this organization [the United Nations]” to
effectively implement its programs.
for a minute that the powers that be at the United Nations don’t
appreciate the ability of these young people to push the plan along.
Speaking at the Model UN/Global Classroom conference in New York,
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon took the opportunity to educate students
about “sustainability” and the other tenets of Agenda 21 being discussed
right now at the Rio+20.
Ki-moon told the students, “Time is tight. In about four weeks, five
days, 14 hours and 50 minutes, we will open the United Nations
Conference on Sustainable Development. The truth is: I am disappointed
with the negotiations. They are not moving fast enough.”
Ban Ki-moon gave the students his list of three things he would like to
see accomplished at the Rio+20 meetings and how they could help:
Inspire new thinking: “the old economic model is breaking down” said
Ban. He called for businesses to put an emphasis on a “triple bottom
line” that includes social environment and economic instead of just
2. Make Rio about people. Teach people
that sustainable development “offers concrete hope for real improvements
in daily lives.” He also called for a greater voice for women and young
people saying that “women should be empowered as engines of economic
dynamism and social development.”
3. Issue a
“waste not” call to action: “Mother Earth has been kind to us. Let
humanity reciprocate by respecting her natural boundaries,” said Ban as
he called for better protection of our air, water, and forests and the
improvement of the quality of life in our cities.
United Nations will not be deterred in its quest to inform our children
of their responsibility to protect their “Mother Earth” from the evils
of humanity. The priority now is to preach this gospel in each and every
American classroom. As the website explains:
popularity of Model UN simulations in the U.S. has grown steadily at
both the high school and middle schools levels. However, most
simulations are sponsored and conducted by private academic
institutions. With the expansion of the Global Classrooms program over
the last decade, UNA-USA brings the experience to an increasing number
of public schools and their students.
United Nations’ drive to teach our children how to be better “global
citizens” is accelerating and may soon come to a school district near
