"Checklist For Change" 1.
CHANGE: Returning the Bible and Wisdom principles
to our public school children under our 1st Amendment.2.
- Below are the
questions you should review before
attempting changes within an organization. When the questions
be answered with a yes, change tends to be easier. Questions
can only be answered with no (or maybe) usually indicate that change
will be difficult.
- Y N
- 1. Will this change benefit the
( Children, Parents & school personnel.)
- 2. Is this change compatible with
the purpose of the organization?
- (Education IS the public school purpose.
Wisdom principles are not threats to education or government. )
- 3. Is this change specific and
clear? (Return to
proven American education curricula.)
Are the top 20 percent (the influencers) in favor of this change?
Begin your influence by returning the Bible & Wisdom principles
your public school with some of these goals and/or write your
government reps. (major influencers) for the complete legal solution.)
Is it possible to test this change before making a total commitment to
- ( It's been tested. The American
education system did it successfully for several centuries.)
Are physical, financial, and human resources available to make this
- ( It's only an additional couple of
changes to classes, reading curricula and /or prayer.)
Is this change reversible?
- ( It has already been a terrible, destructive 50
Is this change the next obvious step?
- ( There is no other solution for returning to the
parents' original American Dream for the children.)
Does this change have both short- and long- range benefits?
- (Duh! But Long Term could be 19 years
away - new born through graduation.)
Is the leadership capable of bringing about this change?
- ( The influencers need
convincing information that it will benefit their own
children. Give it to them.)
Is the timing right?(It's never too
late to do the right thing.)
- People change when they hurt
enough they have to change (massive social distress),
learn enough they want to
change (teach the influencers);
receive enough ( freedom
& permission)they are able
to change. The leader must recognize when people are in one
these three stages. In fact, top leaders create an
atmosphere that causes one of these three things to occur.
- (Two out of three (67%) in the above paragraph and
9 of 11(82%) in the checklist ought to make this a 'done deal'!).
