When Push Comes To Shove

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, it’s hard to believe, but school is officially in session, at least, in some States. It’s the first part of August, Warriors. Kids should still be on vacation!
Teachers should be able to relish the last few days of personal time before heading back to the classrooms. Parents should be able to make some last of the summer memories which are rushed before the class bells ring.

eclipseed
However, as the CCSS Machine grinds on, we find that schools are beginning earlier and earlier. Some States even had ‘year ’round’ schools. I know one former city I lived in, here in NC, had schools which operated 3 weeks on, 3 weeks off. That was for an entire year’s calendar. I need to point out, this was BEFORE the (ESSA) Every Student Succeeds Act was passed. It was also the years just before Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were unleashed on our nation. 

What’s the point in all this? It’s simply another way for the ‘birth to death’ or ‘cradle to grave’ workforce education system to survive. By schools starting earlier and earlier, we’ve seeing children robbed of their childhood; parents beaten down that somehow (and at any cost) their child MUST get ahead and beat everyone else’s to that job or career; and, we’re seeing teachers undermined at every step to let ‘kids just be kids’. What’s at the bottom of this?!

The UN/UNESCO and CCSS  Machine’s alignment to the OECD’s ‘lifelong learning’ so you can ‘learn to earn’All of this has been openly embraced by the US, current Administration included.
(*Note: UN is the United Nations; UNESCO is the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization; OECD is the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.)

In other words, Warriors, your child, and mine, are money makers, not for themselves, but for their masters. The horror is, this system is not only after our young age students, it’s after our older age students, and, our adults. Quite plainly, the workforce shift in education will either train or re-train each and every one of us. A great way to achieve this, align secondary education to post-secondary education. (After all, page 17 of ESSA final law version. Page 33 of the ESSA Final Conference Report) plain stated that.

workforceweb
While the 9 federal levels are easy to spot, look at the variety of other agencies which are not easy to identify as connected.

(*Note: this image, above, cited HR 5 and S 1177, both of these were combined into one bill and would be renamed Every Student Succeeds Act. The HEA, Higher Education Act, is in the process of being re-written to be re-authorized by 2020.)

A Local Push And Shove:

Warriors, to give you an idea of the alignment between secondary education and higher education, this made the local news.

isspush
(article source)

Warriors, do you see the ‘early college’ above? That’s also called ‘dual enrollment’ or DE. DE is accessible to not only public school students, but ALL education choices, including homeschooling. Dual enrollment also got the ESSA push/shove to blend workforce education in. Especially through community colleges. ALL community colleges in the US are part of the CCSS Machine

Now, since I showed you the Iredell-Statesville news, the Mooresville schools are in a separate system called the Mooresville Graded School District. However, MGSD is also served by the Mitchell Community College. There are 2 campuses for Mitchell, one in Mooresville (within walking distance of my home) and one in Statesville, about 15 miles away. So, all MSGD schools are also starting early. Tomorrow, Tuesday, August 6th, in fact. 

More Pushing/Shoving:

Is there a partnership between your State’s Dept. of Public Instruction (aka: State Dept. of Education) and the Community Colleges? There is in NC. Here’s a screen shot from a 2014 presentation for CCP (Career and College Promise) and the CTE (Career Tech Education) showing the push and shove for workforce education:

ncctepush

(*Note: College Promise is a federal program, not simply a NC one.)

Both CCP and CTE are available and being pushed and shoved on all education choices, especially homeschoolers.

Parents from all educational choices are flocking to these programs. Why? It must the be ‘My child’s got to get ahead of everyone else NOW!’ or “It’s an opportunity I never had.” If it isn’t either of those, the biggest CCSS Machine hype being fed to parents is,“It’s FREE or low-cost!” As I’ve said before, who doesn’t love a coupon to ‘save money’?!

Warriors, what has happened to us? That we’d be so willing to seek a government directed ‘security’ and lose our freedoms in the process?! Are we truly seeing what the education/workforce shift is turning us into?! I pray eyes are opened soon!

DwightquoteThe one thing President Eisenhower didn’t state, that we can add, is education! In fact, part of the CCSS Machine’s rhetoric included in ESSA is for students who have been in jail or, are ‘at-risk’!

How Is Your State Spinning the Push?

Below, is the supposed helpful results of a bond for NC’s state-wide use. When the ConnectNC Bond was being trotted out as a great economic move for NC, as well as updating vital infrastructure, it was uncovered that the citizens of NC had been lied to.
Much of the money went to community colleges. 

connectingnc

Why would NC be so willing to do all this? Sure, the almighty dollar is pushing our leaders, but the more underlying agenda is pointing us to what we’re seeing in other States, education/workforce community alignment. Also, seen as a mandate in ESSA.

Another reason NC’s shoving our students of all ages into the workforce? Economy and a better ‘bottom line’ for those who employ you. ESSA has it embedded in its ‘regionalism’ for educated workforce. Of course, ‘regionalism’ is another tie to the UN/UNESCO/OECD set-up for Americans. Shoving students into work too early, is also a danger. It’s the age old, too much, too soon.

Part of the shift toward workforce education also impacts where we live. Just last week, I showed you how Mooresville is using an inclusionary zoning law to set up workforce housing within a mile of a post-secondary, for profit skill based educational institution. These zones and others like them absolutely embed UN led mandates (aka: directives) into our lives. 

Again, you may not live in NC, but use this information as an example to look in your State! What’s happening in your town? Your county?

freeamericans

Closing:

Warriors, I hope you will think hard and long about the sheer proportions of freedoms we are losing. Sure, we don’t want our students indoctrinated with political views we don’t support. We don’t wish to have our students over-sexualized before they can understand.

So WHY are we NOT stopping to pause and look at the workforce preparation or indentured servitude? The seamless transition from education to workforce is 100% in place. By starting school years early, we are seeing this play out in a ‘new’ way.

This, too, is indoctrination! I would also ask you to consider yourselves. How would you be re-trained to fit within the CCSS Machine’s ‘birth to death’ workforce system? Would you go quietly into this type of conformity or would you fight kicking and screaming?

IF we’re serious about being against Fed Led Education, then we must fight ALL its angles, resist ALL its tools, and, save our nation!

The HC Plans

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, yesterday, I showed you how S 406 (Federal Rotational Cyber Workforce Program Act) is being fast-tracked. The article laid out for you the links between education and labor; how cybersecurity is to be increased, not only in education, but all across America. The article also showed you the federal and global co-operation where education and labor are concerned.

Below, is an old screen shot I created back from our campaign to stop the confirmation of Dr. King as U.S. Sec. of Education. Under DeVos (as Ed Sec.), all these are not only still in place, but have been increased. Especially STEM and STEAM.

fededweb

Cybersecurity is not all about protecting We the People from the hackers and whackers out there. Cybersecurity tracks all we do, on-line and, we’re finding it off-line, too.

In education, cybersecurity is passed off as ‘coding’. In the early grade levels (remember, coding is available to ALL education choices) coding is called ‘fun and games’.

codebabies

Where will cybersecurity ‘pop up’ in education and labor? STEM, STEAM, CTE, and CCR. All these connect to CCSS, too.

Warriors
, not only will be tracked by ‘human capital police’, we’re going to see their training embedded in PreK to adult education.

essagoal


The 116th HC Plans:

Warriors, not only do we have S 406, but there’s HR 1592. HR 1592 directs Sec. DeVos to create a pilot program for cybersecurity education. There are other related bills from both Chambers, but we’ll start with HR 1592. Cybersecurity Skills Integration Act is HR 1592’s title.

hr1592
Warriors, the supposed benefits of HR 1592:
a) Credentialed and employable US citizens
b) Improved infrastructure in the US (ties back to the Patriot Act)
c) CTE (Career Tech Education) cybersecurity will promote diversity in the workplace
d) Competitive grants will be used to promote regionalism
e) Ties back to ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 aka ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act, 2015)
f) Tracks which students get credentialed
g) Gives Sec. DeVos $10 million dollars in all for the pilot creation and competitive grants
h) Opens the partnerships up to ‘alternative stakeholders’
i) Must meet ‘in demand’ and economic trends
j) Uses work-based learning (aka apprenticeships) Ties to WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) and the HEA (Higher Education Act) Both WIOA and HEA were embedded in ESSA’s language.
k) Targets special sub-groups of the population for workforce needs

Currently, HR 1592 is in the U.S. House Education and Labor Committee.

If you’d like to read Rep. Langevine’s Press Release on the Executive Order by President Trump on the cybersecurity workforce needs, go here. In his release, Langevine promotes HR 1592.

langevin

That EO (Executive Order) Rep. Langevine referred to? That’s EO 13800, issued in 2017.

EO 13800 called for every federal agency (which included the U.S. Dept. of Education) to comply with the framework for cybersecurity. The EO also called for increased workforce development of cybersecurity.

EO 13859 (Feb. 2019) called for increased workforce development of AI (artificial intelligence) which relates to cybersecurity.

What about the ties all this will have to not only S 406, but the Education and Information Exchange Act (both were discussed in yesterday’s article)?

The President issued a Proclamation on “World Intellectual Property Day” (May 2, 2019). In that Proclamation (#9865) the USMCA (United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement) was a key piece in intellectual property (personal private information) rights.

Warriors, the cybersecurity directly relates to all this. Also, think about the global data tracking and trails which have also been discussed in yesterday’s article and other previously published research of mine.

As far as USMCA in education, that’s a huge problem in data collection/sharing!
Back in Nov. 2018, before Congress voted on USMCA, I showed you how it would embed everything the UN (United Nations) needed for the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) to thrive in the US.

Since the vote for USMCA went through, I’ve shown you other ways USMCA is not our friend.

As I pointed out yesterday, cybersecurity unites SDGs #4 and #8 (education/decent work).

Related Resources:

1) If you missed my review of how President Trump is ‘helping’ education in the light of the upcoming 2020 Presidential race, I urge you to read this. He has not lessened the federal overreaches, nor the global ones. He has helped increase them. 


2) If you think all this cybersecurity won’t impact FEPA (Foundations for Evidence-based Policy-making), I urge you to read this. FEPA was signed into law even though much push-back was given by We the Poeple.

3) Use www.congress.gov to look up the bills related in topic to data mining, STEM/STEAM, CTE, and, cybersecurity.

For example, these bills are of big concern:

House Bills:
HR 1591 (Targets girls and underrepresented students for more STEM; amends ESSA for funding streams to increase technology); HR 1672 (Amends HEA for freedom of expression); HR 1634 (Amends WIOA for more Youth Corps) HR 1635 (Community based jobs); HR 1571 (Creates fed/State partnership, amends HEA for DREAMers); HR 1565 (Creates a new higher ed data tracking system); HR 1519 (Increases culture exchanges); House Resolution 169 (calls for increase in STEAM education); HR 1637 (Allows high schools to be come voter registration locations); HR 1652 (Improves Veteran education grants); HR 1676 (Increases STEAM and amends ESSA); HR 1678 (Creates a Task Force in the US Dept of Ed); HR 1662 (Creates a pilot program under U.S. Dept. of Ed for high tech to assist families of special needs students); HR 1688 (Fulfills federal mandates for Native American education); and, HR 1485 (Authorizes U.S. Dept. of Education to create more PreK-12th computer science).

Senate Bills:
S 1292 (Amends HEA and will use data for student loans); S 1299 (Amends ESSA for more STEM); S 1221 (Amends HEA to create innovation zones); S 1072 (Amends HEA for Pell Grants to go for job training); S 1074 (Reinstates Pell Grants for prisoners); S 1157 (Amends both HEA and ESSA); S 1119 (School lunches/anti bully); S 1168 (Amends HEA for increased religious groups access); S 1176 (Amends HEA for disabled students); S 1198 (Increases U.S. Dept. of Ed’s study abroad programming for global competency); S 1172 (Amends ESSA/IDEA for fully funded Part A of Title One); S 1153 (Makes unauthorized education data access a crime (certain types of ed data)); S 1204 (Expands the U.S. Dept of Ed and implants mental health in higher education); S 1175 (Amends HEA in technical information); S 1117 (Amends HEA and creates Career Pathways Grants); S 1203 and S 1219 Amend HEA; and, S 1137 (streamlines education/job training for environmental health workforce).

congressjob
It’s called represent ‘We the People’, not Yourself, the “sold out”!

Closing:

Warriors, we MUST be pro-active in seeing where Congress is steering our nation. So far, it’s not in any direction we ever desired. the “HC” Plans (Human Capital Plans) are wretched and MUST be stopped!

For my next article, I’ll be focusing on the federal overreaches in education where mental health is concerned to honor May as “Mental Health Awareness” Month.

Big Wheel Deal

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have you ever had one of those items you knew you needed to address but thought it wouldn’t take too long? Yeah, right. That’s pretty much been my experience in education research. Today’s article is just one of those items.  A mere 4 page document..no worries. Not much can be gleaned from those pages..Boy, was I mistaken! Find out how no matter which way the wheel spins, the schools of America lose.

charliebrown
Everyday is a GREAT day to yank the CCSS ball right out from under the Machine’s feet.

A 2018 global education meeting. The goal? Another global declaration. As if we don’t have enough of those going around. However, look at the picture (below). This isn’t your every day global declaration, this is an EDUCATION declaration for globalization.

This particular Declaration reaffirmed the global takeover of education. But, wait, Lynne, the US pulled out of the UN and UNESCO (United Nations and United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization), so this won’t impact American education at all.

WRONG! American education is still 100% aligned to the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), no matter what small portions of the US government have ‘left’ the UN/UNESCO.

There’s more than enough evidence (here on my blog and other’s researched publications) to prove the US is still a UN member-state.

Brussels, 2018:

Brussels2018(Source)

So what does the 2018 Brussels Declaration for Education state?

1) It reaffirms the call to transforming the world via education.
2) It decries the fact the global community is not on the 100% alignment track to the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), mainly #4: Quality Global Education for All
3) Pulls in the 2015 Incheon Declaration (where the WEF, World Education Forum adopted the ‘education for all by 2030’ agenda)
4) Sets out the Education for All by 2030 Framework for Action
5) The Framework is based off UN’s global regions consultations for SDG #4.
6) “Ensures inclusive and equitable quality education and promotes life-long learning opportunities for all.” (In spite of not being on track)
7) A reaffirmation to protect the UN’s declared ‘right to inclusive education’. This ‘right’ is a fundamental role in education AND training carried out by life-long learning and higher education.
8) Research on #7 is a key driver for Sustainable Development. Especially in climate change global adoption and mitigation (reducing the harm to the Earth).
9) Calls for a stronger collective effort for SDG #4.
10) Use formal and non-formal education to wipe out illiteracy.
11) Institute and strengthen legislation/policy/strategy so that all education and training is inclusive. Devote more funding to this end so that ‘no one is left behind’. (For example, in Congress HR 1453 seeks to align more energy activities between the US and the European Union)
12) Tied to #11, those efforts need to include crises and humanitarian efforts.
13) Commit to include migrants, displaced people, and refugees in the host nation’s education and training system. Recognize their ‘qualifications’ (aka: competencies and skills) and ensure these are in line with national and international education agreements.
14) Commit to gender responsive quality education and training, especially for females.
15) Commit to strengthen global citizenship education, especially for the SDGs. This will promote values (respect for life, dignity, cultural diversity) and will help bring social cohesion for democracy, peace, and social justice. It will also improve accountability in education as a ‘public good’.
16) Commits to an open/flexible and responsive education and training system which will support a broader range of kindergarten, secondary, and, college students (aka: early child to adulthood; ‘cradle to grave’; ‘life-long learning’; birth to death tracking) By doing this, global contributions for sustainability, peaceful, inclusive, and just societies will occur.
17) Engages global ‘decent work for all’, especially for rapidly changing labor markets.
18) Calls for public funding to increase for relevant PD (professional development) and continuous PD.
19) Stronger domestic resources and mobilization of these for international co-operation. Once this is set in place, solidarity and increased improvement of education can occur.

Warriors, that’s not all. If you look at the notes for all these items, you’ll find that politics and legislation are to ‘beef up’ host nations for these activities.

You’ll also see that teachers are to be elevated to some ‘god-like’ status.
You are sure to see the economic changes, as well as the social, political, and environmental changes which each host nation will have to bare.
Then, the increase in technology is a ‘given’. Add to that the ‘democratic and sustainable societies and lifestyles’. We’re really talking a total reconfiguration of our nation.

uscaucuslist.jpg

Education costs are to be placed at 4-6% of of host nation’s GDPs (Gross Domestic Products) and use 15-20% of all public funds (aka: taxes).

If you look at the United States GDP for 2018 ($21.trillion) and figure what 4-6% is, that anywhere between $860 billion and $1.29 trillion). The recent FY 2020 Presidential Budget request was $62 billion, just for American education. Fifteen to 20% of ALL US public funds? That’s outrageous!

P3s (Public private partnerships) are to be used to monitor and data track all the activities to ensure the plan is played out as this Declaration decrees.

Lastly, the Brussels Declaration reaffirms that education is a human right AND a public responsibility.

ICYMI: here’s the ‘catchy’ YouTube video about the entire meeting, Dec. 3rd-5th, 2018.

Warriors, was the United States involved in the Brussels 2018 meeting? Yes. In October of 2018, the US and other North American countries, as well as Europe, put together their progress notes and ‘advice’ for meeting SDG #4 by 2030. You can access that information here. The official “Outcome Statement” is a bit more concise. It was used in the Brussels meetings as well.

That information was then forwarded on and used at the Brussels meeting to help create the Declaration.

To access the entire website from the Brussels meeting, go here. (*Note, since signing the 2015 Agenda 2030 Agreement, this is the first time global education for all has been addressed in this fashion.)

While I couldn’t easily identify (in the photos and videos section) any member of the US officials in attendance, some of the groups we are members of (World Bank, UNICEF, OECD) were there. Also, NGOs (Non governmental agencies) were in attendance, so it’s highly likely someone or some people from the US were there.

Closing:

Warriors, why am I bringing up a meeting from 3 months ago? Because one of the resources from that meeting will definitely impact America and its education. The GEM Report for 2019. AKA: Global Education Monitoring Report.

That Report is close to 440 pages. My next article will dive right into what those pages reveal. Trust me, you’ll need a break between this article and THAT one.

Why is it good to go over the GEM Report 2019 again (if you’ve already read it)? With the national immigration issues we are facing in 2019, it is imperative. Remember, the Brussels Declaration has stated legislation and public money will be used for SDG#4.

Also, because so much of this involves displaced people, immigration, and humanitarian efforts, this will be ‘visited’ on ALL educational choices due to the fact it’s being implemented community wide! What will this do to our rights? Our Constitution? Rather than ask me what to do, ask those who are your authorities.

The Set-up: An In-Depth Report

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, our Nation has just been shoved further down the ‘river of the damned’ in education.

How? The U.S. Senate, by a voice vote, passed the U.S. House’s “Strengthening Career Tech Education (CTE) in the 21st Century Act” (HR 2353).

By this passage, HR 2353, now advances to our President. The ‘mad dash’ rushing we are seeing play out? Oh, that’s 100% on purpose. Why? Look at the recent events surrounding this: a “Made in the USA” exhibit, Ivanka’s main stream media blitz, the big showcase of CCSS Machine groups surrounding President as he signed a NEW executive order on July 19th.
So, WHY is all the activity hyping up? Think about the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandate for ALL education to be ‘aligned to post-secondary readiness’. Then, consider the timeline which all was to be in place by: the beginning of the 2018-19 school year.

Warriors, we are quickly approaching the beginning of that ‘academic’ calendar!!

voicevote
(To see the complete list of actions for HR 2353, visit this link.)

Think back, my fellow Warriors, we saw the same ‘rush’ job when it was time for ESSA to become law.

essagoal

Here’s a timeline BEFORE I show you some of the latest information. The timeline will help you better ‘connect the dots’.

****************************************************************************
A Timeline:

If you’d like to see the ‘sales pitch’ from 2014, where CTE was being pumped up by Congress and the CCSS Machine (it’s the featured shot for this article), here it is in full form:
What_Is_CTE_infographic

2014: Where the ‘career clusters’ and ‘career readiness’ supporters and their alignment to Common Core were beginning to surface.

2014: The ‘skills gap’ fallacy begins (so to speak.)
Important note: WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) was made into law in 2014. It specifically tied work/labor to education.

supportworkopposecore
Legislative sessions across America are embracing Workforce.

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

2015: The ‘labor reform’ (aligning education to jobs) hits the HEA (Higher Education Act of 2008).

2015: This duo of articles ties STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) to the WIOA and HEA. As we know STEM is a tool of the United Nations to create global workforces.
(*Note: in 2010, the Obama Administration inserted STEM into education about the same time CCSS rolled into the classrooms. The point? A UN (via the NSF, National Science Foundation) directive: STEM education for STEM people to have STEM jobs to create a STEM economy for greater global good.”)

2015: The career based high schools begin popping up. Dangerous CCSS Machine groups push them out nationally.

2015: This duo gives you a look at the career ‘reassignments’ for adults. The workforce alignment isn’t simply for pre-K to 12th grade, Warriors: Even senior citizens are expected to be aligned!
Important note: ESSA was passed and signed into law by the end of 2015.
ESSA gift*******************************

2016:
By August of 2016, WIOA was well in place, HEA was being discussed to be re-written, and ESSA was just getting off the ground, right? A look back at the truth.

2016: Before Rep. Kline left Congress, he got together with Sen. Alexander one last time to make sure their united efforts would live on in combining academics and workforce.

2016: By the end of 2016, the CCSS Machine was trying to convince us all “CCSS was dead”, that CCR, College and Career Readiness, was the ‘new’ kid on the scene and that our entire communities needed to get on the CCR/CTE ‘bandwagon’.

Back in 2016, the ‘sales pitch set-up’ for America was part of the “Better Way” scheming plan from Congress. Workforce globalism courtesy of Rep. Kline, Sen. Alexander, Rep. Ryan, and more.

To see a more recent Congressional view of CTE from Congress and the CCSS Machine, which shows how well the “Better Way”  ‘sales pitch’ has worked, look below.
(*Note: look for “Better Way” in the “We Have Answers” paragraph.)

******************************
2017: The quest for searching out the roots of the UN-directed shift in US education hit ‘pay dirt’ when I uncovered the workforce shifting evidence from Minnesota which dated back to the 1990s! Since, then EVERY State in America has this plan for workforce based learning.

2017: While bills like HR 2353 were getting much attention, here were just a few of the other workforce/education bills designed for complete alignment between education and jobs.

How The Past Has Met The Present:

Warriors, in 2016, I gave you these words, “You CANNOT have CTE without Common Core! No matter who you are. The CCSS Machine has spent years embedding CCSS, CTE (and STEM: Science, Technology, Math, and, Science) into 2 and 4 year colleges, apprenticeships..”

These tentacles embrace EVERY school choice and every citizen.
HOW? The goal is ‘cradle to grave’ workforce. Warriors, we are seeing this play out in present day 2018!!

From the files, is a picture of (then) President-elect Trump’s Plan. Warriors, this is happening right now!

trumpplan

Warriors, the evidence that our President supports CTE is overwhelming. Regardless of how  you feel about him personally, the truth is right before us.

As much as it appears the President is turning his back on us, the Vice President is probably doing some sort of happy dance over the CTE expansion. Why would I say that? Again, evidence speaks, NOT my opinion!

iceburg

The horror and further shoving our nation done the ‘river of the damned’ is that by supporting and expanding CTE, the Trump Administration is supporting and expanding Common Core. Search the archives of campaign rhetoric and you’ll find that supporting and expanding CC wasn’t supposed to be what America got.

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

Coming To Fruition?!

In 2017, The U.S. Senate brought us a LADDER Act. This Bill was a huge ‘set up’ to globalism workforce AND socialism all in the same ‘place’. How’s that? My article detailed it well. The stark reality, is the most recent (July 19, 2018) Executive Order culled some of the same socialistic bullets from this LADDER! That EO is #13845.

ladder

*********************************
Presidential Slams:

Warriors, note, President Trump is only doing what every other President before him has done:
Used his Administration to grease the wheels of progressiveness, socialism, and Marxism. The ‘selling out’ of our freedoms (via education) will also be furthered by future Presidents and their Administrations.

Thus proving what and WHY the CCSS Machine churns on..we are the cogs which they need to make the wheels turn!


(*Note: The Presidential ‘greasiness’ dates back to the 1930s (and further). See the trail.) 

Lady Liberty Weeps 2
It hasn’t mattered who was President or what political party they represent when it comes to ruining real American education. Just look at the timelines which come with all the bogus educratic laws, mandates, and programs: 5 years, 10 years, etc.

For example, HR2353’s impact lasts until at least 2023.
*********************************************************************
Sure, all jobs and skills sound and look great, but our freedom is the intended price we’ll be sacrificing. How? Along with all the CCSS Machine workforce based education (which is WHAT CTE is) comes predetermined career tracks, NOT free choice.
1511175_703966932968744_1083625628_n

The shift being so championed is a UN (United Nations) led one, plain and simple. So, for everyone embracing the expansion of CTE and apprenticeships (which are another global tool in the CCSS Machine’s toolbox), this visual is for you! This is WHAT you are truly embracing.

mullercore
When did ‘reinventing education’ become code for Common Core?

An Older Trump EO Meets A New One:

In 2017, President Trump signed EO (Executive Order) #13801. This Order expanded apprenticeships, especially at the beck and call of P3s (public private partnerships). Ivanka Trump, during her recent press appearances, kept referring to P-Tech (part of the globally led CCSS Machine’s effort to redesign high schools into worker prep factories).
Warriors, remember: ESSA mandated an increase in P3s in K-12 education for ALL school choices!

Warriors, the Task Force which #13801 put into action has been meeting up until recently (2018). It’s job was to come up with ways in which education and jobs were not only ‘joined at the hip’, but the only way to learn. (Remember, the ESSA mandate about ALL education being the same?!) The agenda from #13801 is being carried out in the new #13845 (see the link above).
Here are the 26 Agenda driven ‘suggestions’ from the #13801’s Task Force:

13801

Warriors, #13845 establishes a nation-wide council to oversee and micro-manage not only education, but labor in all 50 States. Does anyone remember that BOTH these federal departments are unconstitutional and therefore ILLEGAL?! The proposed merging of these two as well as the relaxed child labor laws play directly into the expansion of CTE and the apprenticeships!

Lastly, #13845 brings about the shift of education, control, AND, continued loss of individual freedoms! It also brings all the actions of every other related law and program under the thumb of FEDERAL government, not LOCAL control! #13845 brings to life #13801! It INCREASES government!!

ESSAskel


Closing:

Warriors, we must note that the CTE overload, the apprenticeship rush, and the alignment intended for every single citizen is NOT only for students, but the teachers, too.

It’s for Johnny and Suzy, Johnny and Suzy’s parents, and, Johnny and Suzy’s grandparents. This shift is also for Johnny and Suzy’s children. I’ve lots more information I need to share, so watch for an upcoming Facebook Live video from me. I’ll be sure to give you all you need to know to resist this!

“Spicing” Education Up

My fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors, here’s the latest agenda filled system behind AP World History.

26999416-student-teacher-headmaster-school-children-stick-figure-pictogram-icon-clipart
Warriors, you know I’ve held nothing back in exposing that ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is impacting (in real time) EVERY school choice.

It absorbed AP (Advanced Placement) courses into the mandates for aligned education. Also, IB  (International Baccalaureate) Schools.
You also know that IB Schools are UN (United Nations) breeding grounds for globalism and collectivism. (*Note: early in my blogging days, this resource filled article.)

ibstudent
To be a global student I must also be altruistic. IB Schools have a ‘diploma program’ where you must complete 1 year of service or you do not receive your diploma.

At one time AP courses were truly ‘advanced’. At one time the credits and scores your student earned actually meant ‘honor’.

However, these courses and tests went the way of the wind when they were aligned to the CCSS Machine.

Now, AP Courses are just as empty as the rest of the CCSS aligned (or whatever label your State has re-branded CC to) ‘curriculum’ and assessments.

I know you’ve seen the decrease in quality. I’ve watched it over the past few years. Especially in private and homeschooling. I’ve also seen how the public schools have used AP as a sort of ‘dividing line’ among students. Truly sickening.

Where AP and the UN Meet:

Warriors, simply put, World History.

In this teacher led instructional video, she openly tells the students that she’ll be away for 2 days attending the UN Model Club Conference. She’s leaving them an assignment to watch a documentary and then complete the SPICE chart. What’s a SPICE chart?
Look below:

Before I share what each letter stands for, look at the simplicity of this chart:

simplechart
Why all the detail and fuss for such a simple chart? Why not let kids take notes in a way which makes sense to them? If these students are truly ‘advanced’ shouldn’t they be able to figure this out for themselves? And finally, why let the computer guide them?

The Meaning Behind SPICE, Agenda Dressed In Education:

“S” stands for ‘Social’ and includes class structures, social mobility and barriers, gender roles and relations, family and kinship, racial and ethnic constructs, urbanization, and, freedoms/rights.
“P” stands for ‘Political’ and includes government and leadership, nations and nationalism, revolts and revolutions, conflict and war, legal and court systems, regional/trans-regional/global, and, structure/organization.
“I” stands for ‘Interacting with the Environment’ and covers demography, disease, migration, natural resources, settlement patterns, impact of natural barriers, flora/fauna/climate, and technology.
“C” stands for ‘Cultural’ and covers religions/beliefs/ideologies, language, writing, art/architecture, clothing/food/music, education, science/technology, and nationalism.
“E” stands for ‘Economic’ and entails material wealth, production (agricultural and pastoral), distribution (trade and commerce), labor systems, industrialization, wealth distribution, and banks/currency.

However, Warriors, look at how this OH teacher’s blog highlights each letter of SPICE.

themeone

Do you see what he is choosing to put at the top of the list for “Social”? The UN also has a ‘gender agenda’, its SDG #5. (*Note: SDG is short for Sustainable Development Goal)

To see how the CCSS Machine uses gender as a ‘change agent’, read this.

themetwo

Warriors, the UN actively recognizes America as a ‘nation-state’ or as a ‘member-state’.

theme3

Many of the UN’s SDGs center on environment. To the point environment is more important than people.

4theme
Notice how this theme centers on a dominant belief system? Notice how science and technology are also present? You can trace the science/technology all through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) and the SDGs. STEM is a tool created by the UN to implement the SDGs.

This next SPICE video from You Tube reveals a broader agenda in AP World History.
Flip Learning (where all individual school work is completed at home and all collaborative work is completed in class) is what this one teacher is saying has been proven to be more effective than traditional school work.  Warriors, this is all but eliminating ALL individual work in class.

While that’s a wake-up call on its own, it’s the teacher’s leading the students on how to decipher a picture they are seeing which is even more awakening. Why? She coaches them by telling them when we don’t know things we can be uncomfortable about them. However, by using this SPICE system, as they know more the students will feel more comfortable about the world around them. This teacher also guides the students thinking by telling them nothing happens in a vacuum/that everything interconnects.

Warriors, just how does the AP coursework intersect with Model UN Clubs? From 2014, this NC high school used the two to from a ‘joint crisis committee’.
Here’s another example of how AP is steering kids to see the UN’s global continuity and tie it to which of our U.S. Presidents was most supportive. Compare what you read here with the SPICE information. Do you see the connections?!

In 2016, I showed you how the UN Model Clubs were impacting homeschoolers (as do AP courses). Earlier this year, I showed you more about the march for global citizens and gave you more information on education as that ‘change agent’.

While McGraw-Hill isn’t the copyright owner of AP, it has an entire catalog of AP ‘electives’. World History is among them. You’ll see how the current AP courses align to C3 (College/Career/Civic Life) as well as NGSS (Next Gen Science Standards). The UN can be found in C3 and NGSS.

AP Summer Time:

For students during the summer, the CCSS aligned AP courses keep going! This AP Summer Institute at one NC university campus this year is just an example. See below:

apsummer

To see how the State of NC gives these AP Summer scholarships, go here. Note that when you scroll all the way down the screen you’ll find out the partner for these scholarships is the NC State Board of Education. So, in other words, the AP summer institutes are taxpayer funded!

Now, Warriors, I know your State will have AP courses as well, so be looking for those summer camps! If you want to see how AP students are data raped to provide your State with ‘information’ that can be ‘celebrated’, go here.
Let’s not forget, The National Review showed the leftist approach from College Board to support the UN’s activities back in 2014.

collectivework

Closing:

Warriors, as far as who created the SPICE chart system, it doesn’t really matter. What does, is that the AP courses and assessments have increased their amount of collectivism.
This is infecting ALL education choices. Do we want to be a free America or a controlled one?

(*Personal Note: I’ll be traveling to CT to appear at a Parents Rights Rally there. If you can make it to Hartford, we need you! I’ll use my @commoncorediva (Twitter) account to update you all.)

Eager Beavers

Recently, an Anti Fed Ed Warrior from out West asked me for several resources concerning a CCSS Machine group which is ramping up alignment in her State. During our exchange, I was asked if I knew “AVID”, or had any research on the group. I did not, but I do now. 

Interestingly enough, another Warrior in another State out West, shared some news she had discovered about AVID, too. Her pointed out these objections: The cost is too much, agenda is woven throughout, and, the CCSS Machine makes a profit. 

AVID is short for Advancement Via Individual Determination”

Warriors
, you’ll find the picture you see in the embedded link ‘some news’ above.

So Why A Beaver?

If you look at the AVID website, you’ll see how much hype is placed on being eager to get somewhere in life. Hence, the eager beaver. How anyone can be excited to a 3 inch thick binder filled with agenda, I don’t understand.

Looking Into AVID:

AVID’s approach in education sounds like a CCSS Machine dream: open classrooms, collaboration, closing opportunity gaps (aka: closing the skills gap), and turning teachers into classroom facilitators. ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) has these exact mandates, Warriors!

To access the AP/IB links with AVID, go here. (*Note: this is where you’ll also find College Board.)
To see the STEM/STEAM information, look here. (*Note: like IB Schools, STEM/STEAM is UN, United Nations, based.)
If you’d like to see the SEL proof, find that here. (*Note: you’ll see CASEL’s 5 competencies are aligned to AVID. CASEL is short for Collaborative for Academic Social Emotional Learning. “Competency” is also part of the ESSA mandates, as is, CBE, competency based education.)
To learn about AVID’s partnership with GEAR UP, that’s here. (*Note: You’ll find GEAR UP in WIOA, Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, the HEA (Higher Education Act), and any other law for education and labor.)

Warriors, as you know, I’ve exposed how every one of these programs and partnerships tie back the CCSS Machine! However, if you’ve missed any of the connections, use the search bar on my blog.

AVID’s Leader:

avidfounder
AVID’s founder was featured by her alma mater (Univ. of California: Davis). You’ll find the 2010 information there. The current information is from AVID’s history page on their website. Be sure to note that in 2003, College Board joined forces with AVID.
(*Note: meet the other leaders of AVID.)

AVID From A High School Viewpoint:

Warriors, according to the MO school’s website, students are recruited for AVID. Here’s a video where you’ll hear current AVID students share what the coordinator is using to entice new students. You’ll hear “AVID Rocks…We Want YOU!”

From TX, Channelview ISD’s Avid Recruitment document lays out the year long schedule teachers are to use to add new students to the program as well as lay out what the students must do, once an AVID member.

txavid

From another TX school, this You Tube video (about 5 minutes) details more about AVID in real time. A couple of interesting notes, the teacher featured in the video is a TX Teacher of the Year as well as married to an AVID employee. 

txtoyavid

The other interesting thing? All AVID students MUST use the Cornell University Notes system.
Warriors, back in 2015, I showed you how the Gates Foundation, Cornell University, and many others were uniting to bring about Career Passports.

Think about this, my fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors, ESSA streamlines the way kids learn and the way teachers teach to ONE way, so, in essence, taking notes in only ONE way makes sense. However, it totally overlooks the fact NOT everyone learns that way OR takes notes that way!
For example, if someone were to look through my notes (and I am a copious note taker), they’d see scribbles, drawings, words, lines, arrows, and circles. What I’ve seen from my children proves, a cookie cutter system would of been harmful!  One color coded everything in word form only; one drew or wrote in languages from Lord of the Rings, Klingon, etc.; my last child only wrote down key words, the rest of her information? She listened!

Warriors, time and time again, in looking at AVID material the readiness for college is evident. Do a quick search on note taking and you’ll see several colleges have resources of effective note taking that are NOT Cornell University derived.

AVID From The School Choice Viewpoint:

One Anti Fed Ed Warrior stance is ESSA gives school choice back to the States and parents. Reading ESSA proves this stance is incorrect. ESSA is clear that it will NOT matter which school location your child uses, ALL education will be the same. AVID plays right into this. Just look at the evidence!

Included in ‘school choice’ are the home educated. Will AVID impact those learners? What about private schools, so far the only evidence I have found has been from public schools. I have found a private Catholic high school in WI where AVID is used.

piushigh

Notice, the website states this is the only high school (private) where AVID is fully implemented. Does this mean other private schools are beginning the AVID process?

AVID is also in post-secondary education which includes private education. As we know, those who homeschool usually see their kids go into post-secondary schools.

Be sure to access AVID’s research and data information. You’ll see so much subjective material. Warriors, click the ‘learn more’ buttons every chance you get. You’ll see lots.

Closing:

Warriors, sure, we’d love to see kids eager about learning. Given a choice, though, I really believe we’d rather see ESSA thrown out, the CCSS Machine shut down, teachers able to do what they love, and parents assured the education system isn’t out to conform their kids into some former shadow of themselves.
