Time Out Interviews Charlotte Iserbyt

I was very please to meet Mrs. Iserbyt at the conference I attended in June 2007 in West Virginia. I have recently gotten the DVD of the conference and I'll be getting some of the presentations on the air soon. In the meantime, here is an interview I did with Charlotte over the phone in August 2007.

She has two websites which are simply fantastic! They are and and on this website the show she did with me is also running there in the video section of the website.

Before we get to the interview, here is some background information on her so that you can understand what her view point is on education and some of the other issues that she speaks passionatly about.

From her website:

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 articles published in Human Events, The Washington Times, The Bangor Daily News, and included in the record of Congressional hearings.
