Number 420!

helping-hand1
Lending a helping hand to all our anti CCSS Warriors out there is something I like to do.

We have begun another work week, anti CCSS Warriors. Today’s article marks my 420th on in the blogging world! What can we do from this day forward to help preserve our freedom in America? What more is there for us to do to fight for education and its restoration to a true quality based endeavor? In one word: Plenty!

My Recent Past:

If you follow me on Facebook (under my real name, Lynne M. Taylor), you know I have been blocked from sharing news for most of the past 2 weeks. When asked by fellow anti CCSS Warriors ‘Why?’, my answer has been, “Telling the truth.” We all know that Facebook is a ‘card carrying member’ of the CCSS Machine, so it is not really a surprise when any of us get blocked by the Zuckerberg-run organization. I am hardly the first, nor the last, anti CCSS Warrior to experience this treatment. However, we have found for one of the best ways to get information out there is to rely on the network. To that end, I will keep sharing the truth, in spite of the blockage. Why? If I give up, this member of the CCSS Machine will of beaten me in silencing me. I will NOT afford any member of the CCSS Machine that pleasure!

In Case You Didn’t Get the ‘Weekend News’:

Here it is, https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2016/04/17/watch-out-alignment-ahead/
In it, you will find how Dr. King (US Dept. of Education) is carrying on the pro ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), CCSS (Common Core State Standards), CTE (Career Tech Education), and all the other parts of the education reform. You will also be supplied with information EVERY candidate (no matter how big or small the race they are in is) should be held accountable to. You will get a ‘connecting the dots’ look at total education alignment, from ‘cradle to grave’, and how the ESSA ties to WIOA (Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act) and the HEA (Higher Education Act).

What Is Ahead For Us:

No matter how silenced the CCSS Machine wants us, we must push forward with sharing as much truth as we can. History shows us, the truth always survives, and will always be there to guide us as we carry on our mission. We know, from our previous sharing, that it IS working. How? If it weren’t why would the CCSS Machine be in a panic when we speak out?! The CCSS Machine has discounted us, but they CANNOT stop us! We have been noticed by the CCSS Machine. Therefore, we KEEP up the pressure. Many in Congress are hot under the collar to share with us how GREAT the ESSA is. Many in the media are spinning propaganda out to do the same at rapid speed.

Sadly, much of America is buying it all, hook, line, and sinker. For this reason alone, we should be spurred on to SPEAK more, to keep researching, and getting the REAL truth out there. As I have stated in the past, I will continue to do this to the best of ability for as long as I have breath, or we champion the restoration of freedom/education; whichever comes first.

We Warriors have sacrificed much to get this far in the War Against the Core, but we will have to dig deeper into our reserves. We will have to keep inviting new Warriors to this War. We simply MUST. Consider the true definition of ‘warrior’, as seen below:

Thank YOU for being a Warrior for our nation, our future generations, and our educational systems!

Closing:

In light of all that is going on, please know I am considering a few actions I hope to not only have your support in, but your participation, as well.

1) I will continue researching, writing, and publishing here on the blog.

2) I am considering a code book type of project (if you will) of anti CCSS Warrior words we can use to alert each other to news to use/share. As in any war, there are spies. Spies use a coded language to communicate. I think it is high time we do so. If the CCSS Machine can doublespeak, we can do one better; use words, pictures, or symbols that make sense to no one but our Anti CCSS Warrior Team. (I will definitely need your help with this. Why? We must work together on something like this, otherwise, it is a selfish, unusable move.) We MUST be a united effort in all we do!

3) I am seriously considering a new, and thus, closed Facebook page. We would need to work together to invite Warriors from all over to join. What is holding me back a bit, is the fact it would be one MORE Facebook page for us to use. I know many of us are overwhelmed as it is NOW. Any thoughts or suggestions you have are welcome.

4) One anti CCSS Warrior is working on a website for me, so that I can be much freer to share research/articles, etc. How you can help (when this website is complete and running) is a) share privately with other Warriors it exists; b) schedule joint webinars, in person speaking, etc.; c) access any of the evidence you need for your specific fight in your State.

Again, thank you for what you do; for fighting for your kids, my kids, and all citizens; for getting up everyday, not sure of what needs to be done in this War, but doing it anyway and to the best of your abilities. Thank you for being a part of the Anti CCSS Warrior Team across America!

‘No man is an island, no man stands alone.’ Men and women of the Anti CCSS Warrior Team, I congratulate you on your passion, your spirit, and your dedication.

Education Elephants in the Room

elephant
As Anti CCSS Warriors we are used to being told to ignore the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) as it will REMOVE CCSS from education.

We are savvy, smart, and well informed Anti CCSS Warriors!
We know the truth..the truth that ESSA in fact does NOT removed Common Core from education, quite the contrary, it will continue the agenda, the plans and the foundations already set in stone, as well as hundreds of other things.

Over the past weeks, I have shared with you an up-close, in-depth look at the ESSA Final Conference Report (which is also the Final version passed into law and signed by the President).

Education Elephants Now Entering:

I have shared with candidates for office just how, when, where, why, and what CCSS ties will continue to be, thanks to the ESSA. Communities have been alerted as to how they will fit in, where new programs will begin, and how they are to be aligned to help every child get ahead.

A picture is worth a 1,000 words. Here is what I believe the ESSA really says about America.

Education Elephant #1:
Yet, it is amazing how muted this message seems to be.
Anti CCSS Warriors, we have simply GOT to  stop assuming because we KNOW ESSA is toxic, that others know it. If, by now you haven’t read the ESSA, you should. If we don’t learn all we can NOW, we will have no basis for strategy that is effective. (Read the ESSA in either form: Report or Law. The only difference is the Report is easier to read than the Law. The Report is 1,059 pages; Law is 391 pages, you will just need a magnifying glass.)

Education Elephant #2:
We must ask ourselves are WE making enough noise? Are we helping others who don’t see the toxicity to learn about it? Some citizens across America are buying into the false message of ‘now that ESSA is law, we can relax’!! No, no, and $#%^ no, we can NOT!

Since it has taken me weeks to examine and pull out so much from the ESSA we need to know, I will continue to work on ways to make it more accessible so you, the Anti CCSS Warrior, can have tools to use to help START those conversations with those citizens who need to get involved. I urge you to let me know if there is a way I can better do this. I implore you to continue to look for tools from the others who are also combing through the ESSA

Education Elephants #3-5:
#3: We need a modern day revolution. We need to have patriots who will stop at nothing to stand up for the truth, bat down the wrong, make as much noise as possible to highlight the illegality of all the federally led education alignment. If we allow our distractions to pull us away from our fight  for long periods of time, we will become a less effective Anti CCSS Warrior.

#4: We must continue to learn much, share much, act often, speak loudly-even if our voice shakes.
Consider our nation when it was young. Plainly dressed citizens determined to be free-no matter what hardships they faced are some of our ancestors. Did they give up? Did they get weary in the battles? Did they forge ahead? YES, to all these!! WHY did they do this? Because they knew the truth, they believed the truth, and died for the truth so WE could have the distinction, the honor, and the blessing to Americans. To be free. Education is NOT a civil right, it is not a federal controlled mandate..education, true education is a privilege.

In my opinion, there is little to be scared of in the ‘War Against the Core’, and EVERYONE to be brave for. Is the federally led, P3 rich CCSS Machine nerve wracking, frustrating, and needing to be added to the relics of the past?! ABSOLUTELY!

#5: Warriors, we haven’t time to relax now. States are scrambling to try to dump CCSS, or pass laws to limit it. As per the ESSA, July 1, 2016 is when state funding formulas for Title One will begin! I do not think states can move quickly enough to have anything in place to stop this federal tie to education! It is NOT time for a band-aid fix!

Before we part for today, please see below for my pithy look of the ESSA. You saw the other one above. If you feel these would help make your message about the TRUE ESSA (versus the triumphed “Every Student Succeeds Act”), then use them as a tool. I know, as you do, that WHATEVER ‘it’ takes, is what we are compelled to do to save our nation. Let’s save the elephants for the jungles. Let’s take back our patriot-like mindsets of fighting for freedom today will preserve a nation worth keeping in the future.
