Boston University’s Prof. Kevin Ryan 1988 testimony before Maine Assoc. of Christian Schools regarding Ryan’s role in teacher training in Portugal. Testimony includes proof of World Bank involvement in international teacher training and in its involvement in installation, through carrot and stick methods, of a “modern” school system in all nations. Excerpt follows: “The country was very interested in this. They also wanted to be part of the European economic community. But, unfortunately, Portugal was a poor country, and the World Bank said to them, you will not be admitted into the European economic community until you get in place a modern school system. And they have come through with a good deal of financial support for that. An important part of that is the development of a teacher training infrastructure.”
