As a result of participation with UNESCO agreements, governments worldwide are under pressure to create an "education management information system" (EMIS) to monitor progress in aligning national education goals with United Nation's global education plans.

Stated in UNESCO's Information tools for the preparation and monitoring of education plans (2003): "The [UNESCO] Framework for Action on Education for All [EFA], adopted in 2000 during the World Education Forum in Dakar, Senegal, has defined six goals for the international community to achieve by 2015." All governments that "committed to regularly monitor the progress made in pursuit of the Dakar Goals" are to "develop or strengthen existing national action plans by 2002."

(Recall that on Jan. 8, 2002 President George W. Bush signed into law the No Child Left Behind Act. In 2005, Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings said NCLB and EFA were "complementary.")

The publication provides methods and tools, including a computer program package, to help set up an EMIS and prepare, implement and monitor "national action plans for Education for All."

An EMIS can be more accurately described as a foundation for a Big Brother database. Recognized in Information tools is the fact that advances in information network management and database management makes it "possible to use a centralized computer in a decentralized organization" to "group together all regional databases."


Looming questions

What is to stop corrupt leaders from using data systems to single out those who do not comply with UNESCO’s humanistic, earth-worshiping, communitarian, world attitudes/values/behaviors? ("Marching Toward Global Solidarity" by Berit Kjos; and "Social Engineering for Global Change" by Carl Teichrib, Education Reporter, April 2006)

What will keep the corrupt in high places from targeting non-conformists for re-education, imprisonment, forced migration, or genocide — as witnessed in countries where government-collected data have led to such crimes against citizens?
