Warriors, you’re looking at a brand new initiative by UNICEF for students ages 10 years to 24 years old. I urge you to look at the blue box. Then, contrast with the words in red from NC’s vision for education. See the likenesses?
(*Note: to access the full GU website, go here.)

Then consider the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) language that ALL education must be aligned to post-secondary readiness standards as laid out by WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act). 

Below, is a comparison chart for the UN’s vision for education vs the vision for education in America.
While these visions are old, they mesh very well with the GU’s current vision.

********************************

Meet Generation Unlimited:

World leaders gathered in New York City in late September 2018 to launch this initiative which fits the Youth 2030 Strategy. If you listen to the wording for the initiative (embedded above) you’ll hear how all this change is meant to be risky and disruptive. GU (Generation Unlimited) will have lots of  STEM and include rural schools, mental health, P3s (public private partnerships), data mining, and more. SEE it here.

Look below at one partner, Unilever, and how the GU was announced in the business world:

unilevergu

Warriors, did you notice the age range for the GU (Generation Unlimited)? Ten years old and up to 24 years of age.  Why this age group? See the excerpt below,

“Without urgent investment in education and skills training, the rapidly growing global population of adolescents and young people – which will reach 2 billion by 2030 – will continue to be unprepared and unskilled for the future workforce. And with more than 200 million young people of lower- and upper-secondary school age currently missing out on school, instead of contributing to equitable progress, young people – especially the most disadvantaged – could face futures of compounding deprivation and discrimination.”
(*Note: full press release)

In other words, barely educate them for academics, train them to work to contribute to the economy and be their savior.

modern-education_o_1290213
GU leaders include Unilever, the Global Partnership for Education*, the World Bank, the Global Business Coalition for Education, MasterCard, IKEA Foundation, the Education Commission, OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), and a host of UN entities.
(*Note: The GEP, Global Partnership for Education, is supported by the U.S. Congress via H Res. 466 and S Res. 286.)

 

So, What’s the 2030 Youth Strategy? Look below:

unyouthstrat
To access the entire Strategy document, visit here.

What are some for ‘real time’ plans for the Strategy? Cross cutting, system wide actions and interventions which support the United Nations. According to the document, these plans will hit 5 target areas with 5 effective tools.

1) Engagement, Participation and Advocacy (so we can all live in a peacefully sustainable and just world)
Watch for total UN leadership in all member states (US is still one of these).

2) Informed and Healthy Foundations (quality education and healthcare for all)
Watch for CBE (Competency Based Education) for life, mental health and sexual diversity.

3) Economic Empowerment through Decent Work (everyone has a good productive job)
Watch for member states shifting to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) aka ‘Green’ jobs. 

4) Youth and Human Rights (supports their civic and political interactions)
Watch for UN enforced youth participation in voting, global citizenship, and, human rights education/activism.

5) Peace and Resilience Building (train for humanitarianism and inter-religious participation)
Watch for safe spaces, and increased global, national, state, local partnerships to boost non violence.

The five tools: UN leadership; innovation (supposedly with knowledge); investments via partnerships; accountability (means data tracking); and, common resources.

As a member state of the United Nations, America must ‘own’ their portion of carrying out the Strategy via governance (legislation) and coordination (policy).

“The ownership of the UN Youth Strategy is equally shared by all members of the UN system at the global, regional and national levels. The Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth will be the public face of the UN Youth Strategy and will lead global advocacy efforts and its High-Level Steering Committee in support of its successful implementation. 
COORDINATION AND GOVERNANCE:
The governance of the UN Youth Strategy will be rooted in existing global, regional and national mechanisms and reinforced by a High-Level Steering Committee.”

The High-Level Steering Committee will work with the UN’s SDG Group (Sustainable Development Goals) as well as Interagency Network on Youth Development (IANYD)  members. IANYDs are at a global level, and a regional level. From there member states are broken up in Country Teams.

These Country Teams have 165 UN program participating countries, from around the world, grouped into 131 teams. These teams are to make sure all countries comply with the UN’s programs and initiatives.

In all there are 193 member states in the UN. Not all member states are Country Teams, at least not now.

From what I’ve been able to glean about the UN, any time a ‘high-level’ status is attached, it’s a big deal which will get lots of attention. For example, there’s a High-level Digital  Committee (which will no doubt be working with the ‘innovation’ portion of the Youth Initiative. Melinda Gates (Gates Foundation) is the co-chair for the Digital Committee.

Why would we, as Americans need to know some of this? Look at the image below:

4kusa

Any of the United Nations suggestions (recommendations) is decided upon by the Security Council. As you can see the United States is a member. Then, decisions are implemented via the specialized groups and ‘organs’.

So, the Generation Unlimited, is part of this system. In July 2018, in New York, the first news about GU was announced. Watch a clip here. The entire 2 hour kick-off can be seen here. This will include the youth speaking out in favor of this. Be sure to note the cheering they are trying to pump up with “2030”.

Closing:

Warriors, let’s go back to the NC vision statement for education. As I pointed out before, it’s very similar to that of the UNICEF’s new program.

While I could not find any specific USA Generation Unlimited (GU) activity in the planning stages, this is something we need to look out for. It’s coming.

Look at your State’s education vision, especially since ESSA been made law. “Global” will be inserted in some way, maybe not by the exact word, but the idea of globalization.

The UN’s goal is not for Americans to be America-minded.

ccdivafb


Warriors, one last observation. Did you notice how  Generation Unlimited allows for global programs from groups associated with UNICEF?

Consider then, the U.S. Secretary of Education’s signature on the G20 Education Declaration for global education. While the Declaration IS the G20’s, the agenda is backed by the UN. As such, UNICEF is factored in.

.
Question, petition, protest. Our leaders are NOT leading us out of the UN, but straight into it!

So, our choice is, do we let them lead us OR do we take our country back? These 10-24 year olds will be lost to us as true Americans if we do not act quickly.

For What It’s Worth

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, for today’s article, I’ve got odds and ends to share. Each ‘odd and end’ is somehow connected to the CCSS Machine.

Think of it as you are cleaning out your closet. You know you’ve had the items for awhile. You know you’ve meant to pay attention to them before now.  I must confess, the last time I let items pile up in the closet was July 2018.

Let the ‘cleaning’ begin!

washing_machine_5
Odds/Ends #1:

Proposed IRS changes will mean those education vouchers (or Education Savings Accounts) will mean more interference AND CCSS Machine alignment by  P3s (public private partnerships). How this ties to the current ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandates? More P3s in education; creating money trails which follow children and set up data raping files. If you missed how or why Education Savings Accounts are actually a toxic move, read my archived research.

The ‘starch in our underwear’ for this Odds/Ends is that the vouchers/education savings accounts are a trap. They promise ‘school choice’ which ESSA cannot deliver upon! Why? ESSA mandated that all education be the same in content: post-secondary readiness.

Also, think about it Warriors, if it is to be truly YOUR choice of where you money goes, why do you need (or want) the government’s strings? You do NOT need their permission to make a choice when it comes to your children.

Warriors
, you actually can weigh in on this. All public comments must be submitted to the federal government by October 11, 2018. The public hearing for the IRS changes will take place November 5, 2018.
(*Note: even some groups which are part of the CCSS Machine are protesting these changes.)

Odds/Ends #2:

Borderless Teaching Academy is a small on-line community geared for homeschoolers. Especially those in K-2nd grade. I saw a Facebook ad for them one day last week. While I had my suspicions, I knew looking a bit closer at the new ‘school’ would be in order.

bordless

Warriors, I’m sure you can spot the ‘stain’ of the CCSS Machine right away! Now what’s a bit disappointing for me, is the ad on Facebook simply said the ‘school’ was a community of homeschooling parents.
Sadly, as I looked around the website, I saw lesson plans for sale. In my mind, that’s not so much a community, as it is consumerism.
If you look at the founder for Borderless, you’ll see lots of traditional school class time and instruction.

When you click on the block where you see the CCSS logo, you’ll be taken to a page for Kindergarten lessons. Be sure to look, though. Read how this teacher wants you to teach Kindergarten.
Lessons are for sale, sight unseen. (*Note: while the page says for Kindergarten, the web address simply says ‘skills’.)

bordercore

Warriors, if you missed my look at how ESSA is harming our earliest learners, please go back and read it. Then, compare those leads to what you are seeing in 2018. If you believe homeschools are safe from ESSA, please refer to this.

Odds/Ends #3:

EdReports.Org, this was another lead to look further into. According to the information in the advertisement, all you need to help improve K-12 education, is passion and access to ‘high quality instructional materials’. Your ‘job’? Content reviewers for ELA (English Language Arts). Sounds kind of loaded, doesn’t it?!

Warriors, according to their 2017 Organizational Report, they are a non-profit with free resources for schools, districts, and are designed for education by educators.

edreport2018

That said, the measuring for standards based education is STILL there. The CCSS Machine is still visible, too. How? In the EdReports.org Mission Statement you’ll ‘rigorous’ and ‘college career readiness standards’. You’ll also see the claim that the CCSS  aligned resources aren’t easy to spot, so these experts can help point you to them.

Warriors, to be honest not a lot of changes to EdReport.org have happened since I first exposed them in 2015. Their tie to the CCSS Machine (besides what is already showing?): The Annenberg Foundation.

Odds/Ends #4:

GSG Impact Summit 2018 was something I was sent on Twitter. The image was one which smacks of the CCSS Machine’s agenda not only for education, but globalism.

gsgimpact

So, what ‘tipping point’?According to the description for this Summit, these global investors want force such changes in our world that by 2020, it’s all about to tip their way. Read their agenda here. So why should we as education Warriors, be concerned with this type of investment meeting? Social impact in today’s world means social justice. Social justice is a UN led activity and is laced throughout every Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs). These Goals are embedded in American education. Impact investing involves P3s (public private partnerships). Impact investing brings bitcoins and blockchains (massive data raping systems).

Is education involved? You bet. Are there CCSS Machine member groups involved? Bingo! Among partners (some will be speaking) are the Ford Foundation, the Dell Foundation, USAID (a US government entity), the United Nations (UN’s) Social Impact Fund, and more. The entire list is here.

As far as other speakers who are HUGE in not only undermining education, but our nation? The Rockefeller Foundation, former Vice President Al Gore, Soros Economic Fund, The Brookings Institute, Harvard University, Merrill Lynch, MacArthur Foundation, and Prudential Finance. The complete list of speakers can be found here.
(*Note:My fellow Warrior, Alison Hawver McDowell has an archived article on one of the speakers, Sir Ronald Cohen. You’ll definitely want to read how his impact investing is sizing up America.)

gsged

If you missed my recent in-depth look at the American involvement is Middle Eastern testing, find that here.

Odds/Ends #5:

VIP Kid
Warriors
, this ‘too good to be true’ job is exactly that. Based in China, hiring Americans and based on the CCSS Machine education. If you look closely at the screen shot below, look at the perks: flexible hours/part-time and the big bucks you could make. According to the website, $14-22 per hour is possible. That’s tempting to many Americans. I’ve even had college students attempt to sign up, until they realized they’d be teaching CCSS English. No amount of money was worth that to them.

vipkidad

In this teacher video, listen to how much is revealed, as far as the ‘behind the scene’ items.

Warriors, teachers are called ‘affiliates’ and you can earn almost $200.00 per person the more affiliates you get to sign up.  (*Note: find that on the ‘affiliates’ page from the website embedded above the screen shot.)

Look below at this screen shot. See the CCSS Machine at work?

vipkidcurric

Warriors, did you know that the CCSS Machine member group Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) is the curriculum partner for VIPKids?

vipkidhmh

Odds/Ends #6:

Purdue University Global has recently begun advertising on the radio, on TV, and elsewhere. While I don’t have the script memorized it’s the standard ‘learn anywhere, anytime’ kind of hype. You’ll also hear something about faster degrees and lower costs.

Warriors, Purdue University is no stranger to the CCSS Machine. Back in May 2018, I showed you how the University was partnering with IN high schools to expressly pump up the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) portions of the UN’s global grasp on education.  In 2016, I showed you Purdue’s work in creating technology which has become our student’s nannies.

So, knowing all this, it’s no surprise that Purdue is offering ‘global university’. But, what IS a ‘global university’?  Well, first off, it’s accredited by the (HLC)  Higher Learning Commission. Second, all the courses are on-line and there are 180 to choose from.
(*Note: If you’ve been seeing or hearing a lot of Western Governor’s University ads, as I know in NC, they now have a ‘branch’, WGU is also tied to the HLC. The difference between Purdue and Western’s ads is Western only offers a few tracks for faster degrees. WGU was also featured in the embedded article above.)

globalpurdue

While Purdue University Global tells you there are corporate partners in education (website), they are not stating which corporations are involved. You have to request that information. However, I did find that back in 2014, Purdue was recognized for University Industry Partnerships. Purdue is also globally known for STEM. If you’d like to learn about the Purdue University’s Corporate and Global Office, visit here. (*Note: the Ford Motor Company is a corporate partner. Ford is HUGE in the CCSS Machine.)

 

ccappre
The companies here love CTE (Career Tech Education) and Career Pathways. They also are unabashedly supportive of CCSS and STEM.

Closing:

Well, Warriors, there you have it. The top Odds and Ends from my ‘closet’. I do have a few more items, but those will need to wait until I can dig a bit deeper. We’re finally in October 2018. May we stand firm and strong in our War Vs the Educratic Takeover.
****************************************

On a totally unrelated note, I hope you have heard by now that one of our fiercest Anti Common Core Warriors, Angela D. Weinzinger(California) has passed away. Her spirit and dedication to our children across the nation was always strong. Her fight against the CCSS Machine spurred many people on. Personally, Angela and I didn’t always agree, but I valued our differences. It made us better Warriors. If you would like to help contribute to the family Angela leaves behind, please visit the GoFundMe page set up for her.

Under Our Noses

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it hundreds of times that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) is a coined acronym in use to deceive us all.
Yes, I know, I’ve heard it before, “But, Lynne we’ve always had science and math. We’ve had engineering in the past and technology, too.”
HOWEVER, Warriors, the deception is that by creating an acronym with things we are familiar with, the agenda is easier to be implemented.

What do I mean? A few years ago, I wrote an article showing you how the NSF, National Science Foundation (a government funded agency of the USA), was tasked to come up with a marketing tool to ‘win’ the nation over with.

WHY? Evidence suggests their ties with the UN (United Nations). More to the point the UN’s damnable SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). STEM was (and is) the vehicle to change the course of education. At least according to the UN SDG Toolkit (created here in America). (*Note: you can access and read the Toolkit for yourselves. Look for the link under the Paragraph “From 2002”. The sentence beginning with “Tool Kit” is where you’ll find the document.)

THEN, once the acronym was selected, the President (Obama) had to be influenced. I also revealed HOW he was influenced (a PCAST Report).  (*Note: when you go back and read the embedded links, you’ll notice that the Presidential influence began well before President Obama, especially in regards to the NSF.)

pressurecooker

So, what WAS the agenda and does it still survive under our current President?

Agenda: STEM ushered in about the same time as Common Core, so no one would notice. Use STEM to create a STEM people with a STEM education for STEM jobs and a STEM economy. In other words more mastery based education, or as it’s been sold to us, competency based education (CBE). Why CBE? Skilled workers. Skilled in STEM, that is.

Is the Agenda surviving? Absolutely! In fact, President Trump is a huge supporter of STEM because it means jobs. As we know, jobs means economy.

However, Warriors, the STEM economy is NOT for America, it’s for the global good and their economy.

U.S. Sec. DeVos has done an outstanding’ job of promoting STEM, too. Since STEM is global and she has seen it as her duty to sell our nation out to global mastery based education, you can be assured STEM will be popping up in current proposed DC legislation.

STEM In Legislation for 2018 And Beyond:

Warriors, right now, we are nearing the end of Fiscal 2018. On October 1, 2018, our government begins FY 2019.Currently,  STEM is woven into several of the FY 2019 Budget Bills. I shared with you, back in August, several of the ways in which, not only STEM would live on, but the top-down educratic control.

The biggest ways STEM will survive, as well as the educratic control are apprenticeships, CTE (Career Tech Education), College/Career Readiness, and P3s (public private partnerships).

partnership

STEM’s P3 Legislation:

Warriors, if you’ve not seen what a STEM P3 would look like, consider NASA.

More recently, there’s been concocted a lesser known legislative bill.
It’s HR 5119, simply titled The P3 Act. This Act was introduced back in February 2018 and hasn’t seen much action (if any) since then. However, what the Bill contains cannot be acted upon until there’s the money to bring its agenda to fruition!

hr5119

ICYMI: The researched evidence behind the Harvard/Pearson project turned educratic overreach. You can also learn more from this archived article.

So what does the P3 Act stand for, Warriors? After all, every DC Bill has some sort of acronym to it. “P3” in this instance stands for  ‘‘Partnerships for Progress and Prosperity Act’’. It’s a fancy way to ‘dress up’ the regular P3 meaning (public private partnership). The Bill has one sponsor and 5 co-sponsors and is currently in the U.S. House of Representative’s Education and Workforce Committee. Rep. Bill Foster from IL is the sponsor. If you look at Foster’s campaign donations the U.S. Dept. of Energy contributed the most money. If you look at the committees Foster serves the nation in, Energy in among them.
(*Note: in 2017, in Foster’s district, Joliet Junior College received a NSF Grant for STEM.)

Here’s how the P3s will play into STEM and ‘education’:
1) Requires the U.S. Dept. of Ed to award grants to LEAs (Local Education Agencies) for STEM, exclusively.
2) The grants MUST be used in the following ways:
a) to improve education in K-12 and higher education institutions
b) every awardee is required to  partner with a STEM business or employer
c) internships and apprenticeships are mandated to be included
d) development of STEM curricula and metrics
e) dual credit courses are mandated
f) tutoring/mentoring in STEM, especially for underrepresented student groups
g) STEM activities and events outside the schools and in the communities are mandated for teachers and students
h) after-school STEM and summer STEM programs
i) purchase of STEM resources for STEM instruction

The U.S. Dept of Education (in these STEM grants) will pay special attention to any LEA who promotes STEM for students/teachers; uses tech based content; pairs mentors/tutors with students struggling to meet STEM benchmarks; and/or targets low-cost or free lunch eligible students.

One last mandate from the P3 Act for STEM: all grant award ‘winners’ MUST match 50 % of their award. The fifty percent must be non-federal funds and can be in cash or ‘in kind’ (which means any type of support in exchange for work or other services like free food or free housing.
(*Note: cash received in this manner is non-taxable. In kind can be claimed as a tax write off by the giver, but not the receiver unless otherwise advised.)

workforcenochoice

Warriors, when you read this 8 page Bill (HR 5119), you’ll see the familiar educratic buzzwords/phrases like ‘rigorous’, ‘evidence based’, ‘engagement’ (especially in the classroom), and my personal ‘favorite’: “high quality research”. Now the irony of this entire Bill is that is based of RECOMMENDATIONS, not objective facts.

The Bill also cites the PISA (Program for International Student Assessment), which is geared for not only CCR (College/Career Readiness) aka: Common Core, but the OECD’s (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) workforce based global system of CBE (Competency Based Education).

OECD is where the horrible label of ‘human capital’ comes from.

STEM In Other U.S. Agencies/Departments:
ICYMI: NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and others are STEM disciples, too. (*Note: The State Dept. and all the agencies mentioned were/are CCSS Machine member groups, too.)

Closing:

Warriors, if ever there’s a time to be bucking the system it’s now. Those chilling words (at least to me) about the STEM people for a STEM nation are playing out right under our noses. Are we so stuffed with compliance and apathy, we don’t smell the stench of agenda? The agenda TAKES our freedom! The agenda erodes our education! formerusa

Moving Along

Just a quick update, Anti Fed Ed Warriors..my blog is moving to a more private website to protect us all from hackers. From what I’ve been assured, you’ll still get access to all my research (past and present) on the new website.

Thank you for your continued support and patience during this move.mountain-climbing-clipart-38

IF you’ve wondered what I’ve been up to since my last mega article, I’ve been pouring over 20 federal budget bills to see where the CCSS Machine’s agenda is hidden. It’s absolutely awful, my friends.

What we need to remember is that FY (Fiscal Year) 2019 is just around the corner, so Congress will be focusing on how much money will be needed.

We cannot simply look at the one or two most obvious federal agencies and their budgets, we MUST take note that there are MANY federal agencies conducting federal education overreach.
They are: U.S. Dept. of Education, U.S. Dept. of Labor, U.S. Dept. of Health/Human Services, U.S. Dept. of Defense, U.S. Dept. of the Interior, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, U.S. Dept. of Transportation, U.S. Dept. of the State, U.S. Dept. of Justice, the Office of Veteran Affairs, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), the Office of Budget and Management, U.S. Dept. of Commerce, U.S. Dept. of Energy, the Social Security Administration, and the U.S. Dept. of HUD (Housing and Urban Development).
*************************************************************************************
Stay tuned for more information. I’ll be doing a live Facebook to reveal some of the most important figures and then a follow up article to give you everything else.

To put it bluntly, the government is moving us along…down a path none of us truly asked for. To be even more blunt, it isn’t simply one political party wreaking havoc, it is ALL political parties!
lipstickpig
The biggest ‘tidbit’ I’ll leave you with is this: the price tag of the CCSS Machine’s agenda via Congress is not only our ‘public responsibility’ but, an ‘investment opportunity’ for P3s (public private partnerships).

FY 2019’s ‘public debt responsibility’ is set by Congress at $16.6 trillion dollars.

As it stands right now, the FY 2019 figures for education/job training/employment/social services:
$90 billion dollars

Congress’s self imposed deadline for all reports and figures to be completed by:
September 14, 2018. If we’re going to impress upon our elected officials we are opposed to the continued taxpayer misuse, we haven’t much time at all.

CTE, ‘By Hook Or By Crook’

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we know for a fact, or by several facts, that the ‘hook/crook’ system has been well implemented in American education. Chiefly responsible is the CCSS Machine (in more modern history).

What do I mean by the “CCSS Machine”? The “Common Core State Standards Machine”. What groups or people make up this ‘Machine’? Anyone and every group who/which has undermined our U.S. Constitution to strap us with federal education laws? (Congress and their corporate backers, State governors, State laws, local entities are a few examples) The complete list is long and is well documented.

My focus for this article will be on Congress AND businesses, though. These, in my researched opinion, are the biggest crooks using the meanest hooks.

The political cartoon from long ago, best illustrates how education has been manhandled by Congress and its corporate cronies.

monopolists

Another Hearing:

Warriors, I don’t know about you, but I get emails every time the U.S. House’s Ed/Workforce Committee has news. There has been an abundance of hearings lately.

Each is a dog and pony show with the head of Ed/Workforce (Rep. Virginia Foxx) leading the agenda. What might her agenda be? It’s the same as every other U.S. Representative, that CTE (Career Tech Education) is our ‘silver bullet’ for America.

hookcrooktool
(Source of screen shot above)

So, what Hearing am I referring to? It was the House’s June 13th hearing. The Ed/Workforce Committee’s Press Release was selling ‘the power of charter schools’.

So how does CTE connect to charter schools? According to the Hearing’s archive, Rep. Foxx’s final questions focus on charters and CTE. You can find this near the 2:36:07 time mark. She pointedly asked Nina Rees (President and CEO, National Alliance for Public Charter Schools) about the potential of charters to expand CTE. Rees responded with this, ‘Roughly 400 charters label themselves as either CTE or STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) field schools.’ If you look up ‘CTE’ on the Alliance’s website, there are 22 listings for CTE teachers. From special needs students to all CTE concentrations, Career Tech Ed is used for student’s career tracked pathways and lifelong learning.

charterally

What’s interesting, Warriors, is that the CCSS Machine member organizations funding this Alliance include the U.S. Dept. of Education’s Charter School Resource Center. Other funders include the Gates Foundation, The Eli Broad Foundation, the Walton Family Foundation, The Kellogg Foundation, and many others. (source)

By having a group tied to the U.S. Dept. of Education speaking as a witness at a hearing for the U.S. House’s Ed/Workforce Committee is totally subjective, thus, whatever ‘testimony’ is given will naturally support Congress’s moves.

Frankly, as I listened and watched this almost 3 hour hearing, I was offended by the smugness of Foxx, the superiority of some of the other Congress members making statements and asking questions. You could easily hear digs at certain parties, disrespect toward others, and false vibrato towards the one citizen presented as a witness.

You could hear the coached words spilling from not only Foxx’s mouth, but others like Rep. Davis of California, Rep. Polis from Colorado, and Rep. Thompson from Pennsylvania. Other Representatives appeared to have valid questions, but used most of their question time to espouse their opinions.

Davis said that America (‘we’) need CTE. “We” also need to partner with communities. ‘We want CTE’. ‘We want many opportunities for students, we’re primed to do that to a scale which will create careers.’

Warriors, this is the way in which businesses and corporations are infiltrating the classrooms across America. If they aren’t in the K-12 classrooms, they are in the early college classrooms, the apprenticeships, the dual enrollment, the one-stop-job-centers, etc.
Grooming workers tied to 16 different career tracks is the sole goal. THERE IS NO OTHER. Those who don’t fit into these tracks will find themselves on a different kind of career track: management

careercluster

To access the entire hearing, go here.
(*Note: I’ll be writing a separate article about the dog and pony show surrounding ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) and charters, so the hearing link will be embedded in that article as well.)

Foxx And House:

Not to miss a moment to brag on the PROSPER Act, the Ed/Workforce Committee sent this email out:

abc4cte

The PROSPER Act is a land mine of CTE, STEM, and anything else connecting education to the workforce development. In my recent article, I exposed how as well as Foxx’s misleading the nation on the number of jobs available or not. PROSPER is geared for those in higher education BUT depends on K-12 education to be locked in the alignment for cradle to career ‘education’. Both CTE and PROSPER will encompass ALL school choices! Just like ESSA!
To see other Congressional bills seeking to align all school choices to the skill based mantra in education, my article from Nov. 2017 will help you out.

cradlecareer
Part of the CCSS Machine’s agenda is, not only ‘cradle to career’, but entire communities supporting it!

Warriors, when you see it like this, then the words of Foxx and Davis make even more sense. Not good sense, mind you, but it should show you the underlying need for Congress to by hook or crook, deceive our nation.

(*Note, Foxx and Davis are only 2 of the members at that hearing which were touting charters schools. However, it was this pair which chose to focus on CTE.)

Closing:

Warriors, make no mistake, the U.S. Congress, as a CCSS Machine member, is doing EVERYTHING possible by hook or by crook to mandate education into workforce development. If it’s not CTE, it’s CBE (competency based education).

This is in line with the global education agenda, as well. Look below to see the connections between US and UN visions for workforce education:

sdscans

Seen below, this one lays out how CBE (aka CTE, STEM, College and Career Readiness) fits to the UN’s Global agenda. We can find each of the 7 steps in WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), the current HEA (Higher Education Act), and ESSA. HEA is the only federal education law left to be 100% aligned to all this.
Currently, the PROSPER Act is the ‘answer’ the House has for HEA. The U.S. Senate? Their ‘answer’ is the Higher Education Innovation Act.

Lastly, if you don’t think Common Core (aka College/Career Readiness) is found in the CTE, I urge you to read my previous research exposing how CTE IS the adult version of Common Core.

“Anthracnose” in Education?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, maybe you’ve heard of ‘anthracnose’. It’s a fungus which attacks olives.

Why in the world would I share this with you? Warriors, we’ve known for a long time the symbol for the UN (United Nations) contains olive branches. In the Bible, olive branches were used as a symbol for peace.

blue-un-logo-vectorised-md

In a twisted manner, the UN has taken that same symbol and used it as a way to promote peace in It’s version.

Warriors, if you’ve followed my blog, you know how many times I’ve connected the UN to the CCSS Machine as well as how demonic the agenda from the UN is. (*Note: several other Warriors have uncovered much about the UN’s agenda showing up in American education, too. One of these Warriors, Alex Newman, is, in my opinion, right up ‘there’ in knowledge about this. Also, my friend, Tom DeWeese’s article about the push for global education in America was one of those ‘sparks beneath my feet’ moments back in 2009.)

An “Anthrancial” Bill In Congress:

Warriors, if you’ve not heard of HR 1111 (Department of Peacebuilding Act of 2017), don’t feel bad. I’d not heard of it either, until I did a general search on Congress.gov for ‘teachers’.

HR1111
The Feb. 2017 article


How Education Fits into HR 1111:

In this 43 page Bill, ‘education’ is embedded 34 times. Below is a list of those ties to American classrooms.

Page 2 is part of the index to HR 1111. It mentions peace education training.
Page 6 cites the UN’s Action on a Culture of Peace.
Page 11 embeds ‘nonviolent conflict resolution’ education for schools.
Page 12 ties the peace and tolerance alignment to public education and counseling.
Page 14’s lines 14-17 are worth reading and re-reading.
Page 17’s lines 15 and following will find you needing to take a moment.
Page 18 peace curriculum for as young as Pre-K students; think (birth to grave).
Page 19 states schools will be nonviolent  zones with peaceful education environment.
Page 20’s lines 5 and beyond (look for how grants are involved).
Page 23 is where “Section 104” begins.
Page 24 lays out the peace curriculum parameters.
Page 26 embeds a community wide peace; ties to skilled workforce and peace officers.
Page 28 is where you’ll find how the U.S. Dept. of Education ties into all this.
Page 30 mentions ‘primary universal education’.
Page 42 will tie all this to the ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965), which, as we know was updated in ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act); shows how the SEAs (State Educational Agencies) will be impacted.
 
Finally revealed in HR 1111, Warriors, this new Executive level agency of “Peacebuilding” will have a Secretary. That person will be APPOINTED.

Warriors, HR 1111, hasn’t seen any action in months. However, we’ve seen too many times how a ‘sleeping’ bill has been not only brought back to life, but fast-tracked to fit the CCSS Machine’s agenda.

HR 1111 also cites that the U.S. Dept. of Education would have to work with the US Institute of Peace (USIP). USIP develops curriculum used in all kinds of classrooms. USIP also trains teachers specifically to meet the ‘peace keeping’ mandates given by Congress. Built into the USIP’s peace curriculum is a Conflicts Styles Assessment.
You can access the assessment here. The curriculum also uses a ‘Curve of Conflict’ for students to see how all the phases interconnect. You can bet the assessment’s results will put the students somewhere on this curve.

curve
Also woven into the USIP’s curriculum is a group called “Kids for Peace”. See some of their partners below:

kidspeace

Warriors, does the USIP have a connection to the UN? Absolutely! Below is from the Obama Administration’s era:

USIPUN Warriors, President Trump’s Administration is also using USIP.
Does USIP support the UN’s SDGs? Absolutely. Back in 2015, a meeting to discuss how those Sustainable Development Goals, the US, and, peace could work together. Below, a screen shot of the Goal 16 of the UN’s SDGs:

UNsdg16

To learn more about all that surrounds SDG #16, visit here. You’ll also find more at this location.

Warriors, how do SDG #16 and education (SDG #4) intersect? Listen to this UN Messenger of Peace on financing education.

Look below from an “Unpacking Guide” for the UN’s SDG #4.

unpackSDG

Warriors, if you’ve not seen all the research I’ve found connecting the SDGs to the CCSS Machine’s overreach in American education, I’m giving you the entire set of evidence to use.

Closing:

Warriors, If you noticed in the first HR 1111 screen shot, you may of noticed Rep. Lee’s name. I’ve not touched on how Rep. Lee (CA) is connected to the UN, but in case you are wondering
repleeRep. Lee’s got quite a collection of big campaign donors. Apple, Inc. is one of the top ones. Apple, Inc. of course, is a global giant. I wrote back in August 2017, about Apple’s connections to global education.

Warriors, I hope you’ve seen how rotten this ‘olive branch bill’ (HR 1111) truly is.
I trust you’ll use the information I’ve shared as a way to continue to inform others just how wretched Congress has become when it concerns America’s freedoms. I know you’ll recognize the illegally based overreaches in education are being continued in bills like this.
Not to mention the expansion of  government by creating a new federal agency at taxpayers’ expense without the people’s voice involved.

I Might be Banned IF…

Hello, Warriors!

It’s been a busy week and a half for me. Child Abuse in the Classroom’s national grassroots campaign kicked off, interviews to prepare for, webinars to attend, and, a video ‘class’ on the UN’s grasp on American education..enough to make me dizzy. Some even called me ‘ditzy’. Oh well, all in the life of an outspoken education activist.

So, what do I mean by the title you read? “I might be banned IF”….I told the truth…again.
Facebook banned me for doing so…again. By now, not only am I NOT surprised, I am saddened. Freedom of speech, at least according to the Facebook ‘police’ is heavily censored. I could understand if what I have to say was truly awful, but, the truth?? Seriously??

 

What Got Me Banned:

Quite simply, my latest video presentation. Here’s the link. If that link doesn’t work, here’s another way to access the audio. The audio version will not have the images I shared during the video, but you will be able to still get the idea that what evidence I have uncovered is key. Warriors, please share these resources. My thanks to the Warrior who created the audio version.

The research links from the video:
The first link I shared is for the Child Abuse Campaign. It has a section of its own below.

I touched on HR 3358 during the video. Use the website I embedded to search for it. This next week, I’ll be diving into this bill for a closer look.

One thing I didn’t point out, but intended to was the use of the Smurfs to push the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

During the video, I referred to my blog to access the articles by topic. As you know, I’ve devoted several years to researching education. One of the articles which sparked me to get involved was by Tom DeWeese. I not only gave you a bit of history with Tom’s article, but I also gave you a bit of what’s been happening since then and is directly related.

The technology push in America is also traceable to the UN. Read all about it, here.

One of the biggest things I shared with Warriors, is the color psychology behind the SDGs. There are two links you MUST visit! The first one is from a NGO (non government organization) run by a large group of Catholic women. The second one is from a group of ‘stakeholders’.
The UN has some serious mandates about using the logo and colors of the SDGs. Find these 2 links and see how strict it all is.

You’ll find the Global Alliance for Monitoring Education is funding assessments on a global level which fits right in with the UN’s agenda.

To see the CIPP (context, input, process, and, product) model for assessing (based off the Latin American assessments all UNESCO member-states are to use), visit the highlighted link. The CIPP image is a bit fuzzy. Here’s another resource to try.
To see the CIPP research (for measuring service based learning (aka: skill based learning), look here.

To see the UN’s definition and purpose of assessments (a ‘must’ for the 2030 Agenda), go here.

To hear the US President and the US Ambassador to the UN (Haley) re-commit the US to the UN’s reform, you have these 2 sources. Remember, Warriors, it isn’t so much what IS said sometimes as it is what ISN’T said. By committing us to the UN’s agenda, these leaders are speaking for us. We did NOT ever say we wanted UN in our US education!



Child Abuse In The Classroom:

“OUR GOAL:  To repeal ESSA and President Obama’s Executive Order 12866 which changed the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations to allow our children’s data and private information–including teacher-generated, anecdotal, psychological analysis–to be shared without parental knowledge or approval.”

Warriors, we MUST have tens of thousands of citizens join us to make the grassroots effort truly pay off. To accomplish a ‘repeal and restore’ tactic of this nature, massive numbers of outraged citizens are needed. Please visit the website, see the ESSA’s violations against all our children; learn the loopholes of FERPA.

Things I’ve found since the video was recorded AND are related!

Global Citizens:

What a Global Citizen must believe and act out daily:


(*Note this is from a preschool) If you’d like to see a ‘grown-up’ definition of becoming a global citizen, visit this website. (*Note: This resource’s history is one you’ll need to read to believe!)

Then this proclamation by a US citizen:
asseen

The Global Citizenship Initiative’s website has a Report you simply HAVE to see. It is the Report Card for each nation involved in the organization. Of course the US is a member.
Below is how ‘we’ are ranked as far as aligning to the Initiative:

globalcitizeninitiative
Warriors, it’s vital to point out that the top 3 nations (Denmark, Sweden, and, Norway) “Leading the Way” in this Initiative are ones we repeatedly see our education systems compared to  OR lamented over that the US isn’t MORE like these nations when it comes to education! Stop comparing!! When this happens, we are actually encouraging our US education system to become Un-American!!!

The Global Education Associates openly participates in the UN activities. The US, is a member country. You’ll find the Eden Project is also a part of the GEA (Global Education Associates)

The P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills) is a well known CCSS Machine member organization. But did  you know they are ‘buddies’ with the UN?! That’s right, the ‘buddies’ have been working together to ruin American education since 2013.

Not only is the P21 up to its neck in the UN’s activities, but they are also pushing the 21st Century Community Learning Centers. These Centers are most definitely a globalizing move as well as being embedded in ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). P21’s latest Report shows how our babies (18 months to 6 years old) can learn BETTER when involved in a 21st CCLC.

babyp21
Since so much of ESSA has technology as an educational ‘resource’, it’s important to connect that back to the UN’s push for technology (see the links above I shared; as well in the video). Warriors, look at the evidence directly above.  It’s from a group known as ‘CUE’. Cue loves to lobby legislators. They are also partners with inACOL (International Assoc. for K-12 Online Learning). In 2016, inACOL gave a proposal to the UN for the 2030 Agenda in education. (*Note, thanks to Warrior Victoria for the CUE lead.)

unescoinacol

If you’ve heard of a “New Tech” school, it’s part of the combination of efforts in educational reform. According to the NTN (New Tech Network), students are BETTER College/Career Ready Graduates! Here’s their Report stating this. (*Note: “The New Tech Network (NTN) of nearly 200 schools in 28 states..” contains about 72,000 children.) When you access the Report, be sure to read the President’s remarks. You’ll find that global citizenship is among the themes of these schools.

Closing:

So, Warriors, there you have it. You, too, can be banned for sharing the truth about the CCSS Machine! So, speak loudly, speak daily, and speak out to save our nation!

Teamwork Agenda: Marketing Lies

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I know that we have heard SO many educratic lies about schools in America, we could scream.

Wednesday night (9/6/17) I was the honored guest on Women on the Wall’s weekly anti CCSS Machine call. To say it was an easy topic, would be a lie. It wasn’t, in fact, I stumbled through quite a bit. Not because I wasn’t prepared, I was so upset about what is happening!

What was the topic? The upcoming broadcast of the EIF/Project XQ’s “Super School Live”. It’s set for 9/8/17 and is to be aired on ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC. I urge you to listen to the archived version (above). You’ll need to have a pen and paper (or whatever you use to take notes) handy.

If you don’t have time to listen to the archive, let me state as concisely as I can that the ‘teamwork agenda’ surrounding the broadcast is marketing lies to justify making over American education, especially at the high school level. (*Note: the announcement for the Call had the archived links to my researched published articles you may wish to access for the evidence showing the lies and deception.)

In a ‘jiffy’, you can access the 2006 “Redesigning High School” Report : Reinventing_American_High_School
(*This Report is by the Association for Career and Technical Education, or ACTE)
Later in this article we will revisit what the latest from ACTE is.

This effort is NOT new. It’s NOT USA born or created, either. It’s sick and it’s twisted. The ‘teamwork agenda’ in spreading the marketing lies about education is set to one goal: weak-minded citizens trained for boosting the economy. To find out how you can connect it all together, please listen to the archived call.

Warriors, here’s the entire You Tube video which was discussed at length during the Women on the Wall Call. I only discussed roughly the first 20 minutes of the almost 1 hour and 20 minutes.

More Teamwork Agenda Marketing Lies:

Warriors, what you see below is from my Common Core Diva Facebook page.  I posted this as a sort of follow up to last night’s announcement about the Women on the Wall call and the marketing lies in education.

ccdivarowe


Here are my comments which lead up to the screen shot:
“Mike Rowe’s first words are, ” In Germany..”
Mr. Rowe has also been used as a puppet for Congress in their push to embed MORE CBE and CTE (Career Tech Ed, which is adult Common Core).
As far as the school mentioned? My husband’s place of employment.
More marketing lies to justify the workforce based shift in education as well as treating humans as commodities, not blessings.”

(*Hear him in the video. ***Warning! The ATTN: video does contain a blasphemous use of the Lord’s name.***)

If you do not know “The ATTN:” social media site, it’s a site where anything from the headlines is used to catch your eye. According to their website, ‘compelling issue-driven content’. In other words: a marketing strategy used to inflate issues.

Warriors, how do I know the false marketing about an educated workforce is ripe in America? Look at the blow-back from my post on the CC Diva Facebook page:

blowback1
Followed by another person who has obviously woken up to the marketing lies:

blowback2

This was followed by my rebuttal points:

blowbackrebutt
Warriors, then check out the next person who decided to agree with the disagreeable person who spoke first. You’ll also see my reply to them:

blowback3

Warriors, here’s a sampling of the other videos Mike Rowe has appeared in to push the teamwork agenda and marketing lies:

mikerowe

My research connecting the Congressional ‘love’ for such a celebrity and his ‘star power’ to push an agenda which supports the CCSS Machine was published back in early March 2017. (Please make sure you read the comment by Patriot Mongoose. The links provided by the Patriot are necessary to further help expose the marketing lies about ‘skills gap shortages’)

Related:
1) Congress’s devotion to CTE (Career Tech Education) from 2016’s session. If you want to see some of the same devotion in the early part of the 2017 session, find that here.
2) My open memo to CTE Teachers and Leaders everywhere is one we need to re-visit now that school has begun.
3) The current VP (Vice President) is a CTE believer and backer. This is huge in the current landscape of education.
4) A skills gap myth-busting article of mine, also from 2016.

Archived Rowe CTE Marketing Teamwork Agenda Lies:

74rowe
Warriors, you can access The 74 article here. If you do not have the time to read the article, here’s what is the most important. Mr. Rowe has testified 2 other times before.
1) Rowe is a long-time CTE advocate.
2) Two of his tweets about CTE are seen on the right hand side of the article. One even plays up “Make America Great Again”.
3) Rowe testified in 2011 and 2014. The purpose? A marketing makeover for CTE.
4) The 74 is a pro CCSS Machine member organization, so their spin on Rowe’s activity for CTE. Of course, here, on my blog, you’ll find there is no spin, only the researched facts behind the marketing lies.

NC’s Spin for Teamwork Agenda:

Warriors, earlier in this article, I said we’d revisit the ACTE. Why? One of the latest headlines is about the wonderful news of NC’s CTE unifying with this national organization.

ncacte

If that doesn’t mean much, consider the screen shot (near the beginning of this article) from NASCAR Technical Institute promoting Mike Rowe. NASCAR Tech is in NC! (It’s a branch school of the AZ based corporation.)

In NC, CTE offices are housed in the NC DPI (North Carolina Dept. of Public Instruction) for K-12th grades. In post-secondary education, the NC Board of Governors oversees it. Factor in the NC Dept. of Labor, as well.

Warriors, remember, because of the unifying forces behind the U.S. Dept. of Education and the U.S. Dept. of Labor, we have data tracking expressly FOR aligning careers to academics!

Let’s also consider that CTE is embedded in job seeking assessments used by those one-stop career centers or job application sites as part of your State government. You’ll find CTE in those skill based apprenticeships, too.

Warriors, I want to show you one more way the marketing hype has been used against us.

Here in my town, we’re seeing a 2014 bond (was placed on the ballot for citizens to vote on) come to fruition in the form of a ‘renovated’ city high school.

The money poured into the ad campaign for the renovation was plenty. The write-ups in the local news sources were also quite numerous. The bumper stickers and T-shirts all encouraged folks to vote ‘yes’ for the Bond, because if you didn’t, you somehow were being non-supportive and a terrible person.
As part of the Bond package, new spaces for CTE were planned on. Guess what? They’ve been built. There’s even a Career Bridge Council to help utilize the teamwork agenda built on education lies.

Closing:

Warriors, we MUST continue to expose these team driven marketing lies about education! To do any less is simply unacceptable!

By-Standers in Education

For those of us dedicating our lives to fighting to preserve American education and its freedoms, some things are easier to learn than others.

It was easy to learn what goes on behind the scenes in our school districts, for the most part. It was harder, however, when we discovered how much of what goes on means to undermine our children, not equip them.

It was easy to trace the CCSS Machine (and still is). It’s not been so easy getting those around us to get involved in stopping the manaical agenda that comes WITH the CCSS Machine.

Some of us have become Warriors Against the Core. Others, have remained by-standers. Likewise, on the OTHER side, there are Warriors For the Core. Then, there are those who pretend to be by-standing all the alignment, data mining, and just plain egriousness of it all.

We’ve learned about many of these types of education posers through the years, right, my fellow Warriors? Well, I’ve got one more..maybe you know this group; maybe not.

 

“Stand For Children Leadership Center”:

I first learned about this noble-esque sounding group a couple of weeks ago, while researching the SMART and HARD Goals originally designed for business and being liberally applied in classrooms now.

While the ‘Stand for ChildrenLeadership Center’ didn’t invent either of the Goals, it’s interesting to learn what type of ‘standing’ the organization DOES do.
Simply put, lots of collective plotting and planning for a) ‘college readiness’, b) school choice, c) the type of educational standards used, e) engaging the family, f) STEM, and many other education-related issues. See their entire menu of stances.

Warriors, in other words: “Stand for Children” should be re-named “Stand for the CCSS Machine”. Why? Our first clue is below.

standgates

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have been funding “Stand for Children’s Leadership Center” for many years.

A second clue? “Stand for Children Leadership Center” is a part of a bigger group by almost the same name.  That name is “Stand for Children”. This separate website can be found here.

The mission for this group? “Our mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of their background, graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, college or career training.”

Here’s a sample from their website. I’ve summarized some of the information.

StandCCSS
While the “What We’ve Done” website page didn’t reveal activity in OK, the 2016 Annual Report does. In fact, the Annual Report shows how “Stand” fought to keep aligned assessments, CCSS, and even which candidates were financially supported. Stand’s entire group is a non-profit with over 500 state-level associated groups. You can also find out who and/or what organization gave funds to Stand for Children. While Gates funds the Leadership Center; you’ll find Bloomberg Philanthropies and Education Reform Now as donors to the Stand for Children portion of the overall non-profit.

Related Information:

Tied to the Stand for Children, you’ll find two Board members have had previous (and who knows if these connections are not still viable) positions with:

a) Stand for Children’s Chair Board member is an active working member with the Emerson Collective (where you can find the XQ Super School Project). The President of Emerson Collective also sits on the Boards of Teach for All, New Schools Venture Fund, and others. Her name is Lauren Powell Jobs. She also founded College Track.

I wrote about the XQ in 2015. Emerson’s update on the XQ from May 2017.
You can find one of my New Schools Venture Fund articles, here.

If you’d like to learn more about Teach for All, look below for a quick summary:

teacforall

b) Another Board member is tied to KIPP Schools, and founded a non-profit called Murmuration. It’s a politically active education group. Her name is Emma Bloomberg (daughter to Michael Bloomberg). She is the CEO of Murmuration. If you’d like to see the Murmuration campaign donations, Emma Bloomberg made, see them here.

Closing:

Warriors, as you can see from above, lots of inner connections back and forth to the same old well-known CCSS Machine members and their organizations. It appears Stand will expand their impact from 11 States to all 50 at some point. Project XQ is tearing through our nation’s middle section with a reform bus (literally) full of propaganda to spread. KIPP, as we know is all about charter schools and reform agenda. As we can also see, political funding is ripe in the CCSS Machine.

As Warriors, we’ve learned (easily) that throwing money at anyone or any thing does not FIX education. We also have learned (painfully) that aligning education does not FIX it either. So, why is the CCSS Machine grinding America down to support alignment?

I believe, from researching, it is to wear us down to the point we give up and give in.

What can we take forward with us from all this information? To remain firm and strong. Look how many have become by-standers at each advance of the CCSS Machine. Will we be next in bowing down to it? While it is the Machine’s goal, it isn’t ours.

It’s clear that the stance by the sold out CCSS Machine members and groups is one of total conformity. We MUST make it clear that our stance is one of fierce protection. We cannot afford the stand and look the other way any longer.
