"Wikipedia notes that the most controversial of his recollections is the following off the record quote:
...All of us [Foundation leaders] that have a hand in the making of policies here have had experience, either with the OSS during the war, or the European Economic Administration after the war - we've had experience dealing with directives, and these directives emanated from the White House [...] we still operate under these directives. Would you like to know what the substance of these directives is? [...] Mr. Dodd, we operate under directives, the substance of which is that we shall use our grant making power so to alter life in the United States that it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union."
— Ford Foundation president Rowan Gaither
We then replay Lyn Gerry's reading of "The General Education Board And Friends", a section of John Taylor Gatto's Underground History of American Education, which summarises the once prominent and widely understood role of tax exempt foundations in setting educational policy. This continues into our second hour, after which we hear a short section from Charlotte Iserbyt, recounting her gradual disillusionment with the reality of policies and goals as a policy advisor in US Department of Education under Ronald Reagan. We conclude the show with the first half of a 70 minute Radio Free School interview with John Taylor Gatto from December 2004, entitled Outing School.
Thanks to Radio Free School for the John Taylor Gatto interview. Thanks to G. Edward Griffin for the Norman Dodd interview. This episode rebroadcasts content from UG#348 and UG#357.
