Education International (EI) "represents organisations of teachers and other education employees across the globe" and ..."is the world’s largest federation of unions, representing thirty million education employees". In other words it is a global federation of teacher unions.
Click on this site, and at the top click on Education and Employment. In the drop down box click on Education for All. About half way down there is a statement, "EI’s Education Policy Statement is available here" with a link to a pdf file Education Policy Paper. Click on that link. To summarize and highlight that file:
EI unites all teachers and other education employees and gives expression to their collective views on education policy education provided by public authorities...promotes peace, democracy, creativity, solidarity, inclusion, a commitment to a sustainable environment, and international and intercultural understanding.
EI defines quality education in terms of context and culture. Quality education is defined by its inputs (including students’ background...); ...and by projected outcomes (including individual, social, cultural, economic and environmental needs)
Inclusive education means that all students should be educated together, to the same high standards...
Teaching...is crucial to transmitting and implanting social values, such as democracy, equality, tolerance, cultural understanding and respect for each person’s fundamental freedoms.
During the last decade, EI has built up an important partnership with civil society organisations in the Global Campaign for Education (UN NGO); ...quality education benefits from strong links between unions and civil society. Moreover, cooperation with civil society strengthens the social values of education, by contributing to peace, democracy, the environment and intercultural understanding.
Education is the key to uniting nations, bringing human beings closely together and guiding them towards humanity.
EI works diligently within international organisations that operate in the field of education. These include UNESCO, the International Labour Organization, the Global Unions, and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, among others. EI supports the educational mission of these organisations, ....
Social media...facilitate(s) new forums of cooperation between unions and the wider civil society.
...education institutions should provide a healthy diet and curricula should include programs for improving personal hygiene and advising about sexual and reproductive behaviour.
Sustainable development education must now be an integral part of the curriculum in all educational institutions. As the citizens and consumers of tomorrow, students should be made aware of the impact which human beings have had on the environment and, in particular, of the implications of the continuation of a consumerist culture in society, for the future of the planet. Sustainable development should be included in the core of any prescribed curricular framework.
Under the United States of America (search under country) members of EI include The American Federation of Teachers, a UN NGO, and the National Education Association.
Through unions teachers are also being indoctrinated to promote Agenda 21 education goals through Common Core. Perhaps Tom Luna should be made aware of this and how Idaho teachers are potentially being guided by the UN.
This website is non-partisan and is solely dedicated to removing the harmful controls placed on our state and nation through Agenda 21 and its associated programs. We invite all Idahoans to join us in this fight for freedom!
