The REAL Facts about WorldEducate


Below, you will find the most common claims WorldEducate makes about their institutes, and our responses to these claims.

Education

WorldEducate claims that their performances and exhibits have helped educate millions about Subgroup B communities.

Note 59 Note 60

In reality, studies have shown that visitors to WE leave the facilities knowing no more than they did prior to their visit, and, even worse, many of these visitors still believe dangerous stereotypes about Subgroup Bs upon leaving WE.

Note 61Note 62Note 63

Care

WorldEducate claims that they provide excellent physical, psychological, and social care to the children in their collection. The children are supposedly offered medical treatment superior to what they would have in their own communities, provided the education necessary to keep them mentally healthy, and allowed to live in groupings similar to the ones that they would find in their own home sites.

Note 64While it cannot be denied that the medical care at WE’s facilities is first-rate, most of the care that they provide would not be required if the children were living on the Subgroup B Plains since many of the injuries and illnesses acquired are particular to life in the WE facilities. The education that the children receive is inadequate as it is based on outdated pedagogy. The day-to-day stress of life in the facilities has caused considerable psychological problems in the children which has led to violence and suicide. The communities that the children live in have been proven to be poor facsimiles of those found in their home sites which causes confusion, hostility, and depression.

Staff

WorldEducate claims that the trainers and other staff that work at their facilities are the best in their fields and knowledgeable about the needs of Subgroup B children.

Note 65In reality, all or nearly all of the trainers have no particular expertise in the psychology or education of Subgroup B children. They are brought in and trained by WE administrators who are often themselves undereducated in the proper care of Subgroup B children. This lack of education has contributed to the dangerous working conditions at WE that have led to injuries and fatalities. The sociologists and psychologists who serve on the advisory boards are often from the JWERI (James-WorldEducate Research Institute), a research institution that exists only to underwrite WE’s ideology. While these individuals have degrees from respected institutions, they do not challenge the WE status quo.

Research

Note 66WorldEducate claims that their institutions provide necessary and valuable research about Subgroup B children and communities.

In reality, the most relevant research is being completed at universities and independent research organizations all over the country. The WE research is simplistic, limited in scope, and irrelevant to the actual communities living on the Subgroup B Plains.

Donations

Note 67WorldEducate claims that a portion of their profits benefit Subgroup B communities. They argue that their funds have rebuilt houses, schools, and factories and have provided necessary goods.

While there are, undoubtedly, communities that have benefitted from WE funds, however, the total percentage of money provided to WE communities is well less than .005% of its annual proceeds.

One thought on “Research Document 28

  1. I recently listened to a podcast about the ethical and technical difficulties of cloning a mammoth. One of the major ethical concerns the researcher in the interview mentioned was concern for the surrogate mother elephant because elephants don’t do well in capitivity. I found it interesting that this was the major ethical concern she raised. Here in Edmonton, Alberta, there is some controversy over Lucy, the elephant in the local zoo, whom activists claim is in poor health and shouldn’t be kept in this climate, and alone without other elephants.
