“The Prudence Files: Part Five”

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’ve made it! The final installment of my “The Prudence Files” series. Before we go on, I want to pause and thank those who’ve sent information, especially for Part Four. I want to thank each of you for coming back to find out the real truths not being given via mainstream media, too.

In this article, the last 2 Presidential hopefuls; private citizens. Howard Schultz (Former Starbucks CEO ) and Andrew Yang (Venture for America). Will either of these 2 offer We the People a glimmer of hope, as far as education? Let’s see what we can find out.

Schultz’s Bid:
Warriors
, while some sites say Mr. Schultz is considering running, the original source I used in Part One is where I learned he was. I did find his campaign website, so I’m pretty sure that’s a ‘winner’. Below is a picture of the website:

Schultz

Schultz is running as a ‘Centrist Independent’ candidate. In his words that means ‘governing from the middle’. According to the Centrist Party, these citizens and/or candidates have no party lines. As such rather than go with what’s popular, they go by what is right. Below is their stance on education.

centrist

Warriors
, it’s very important for me to say that Mr. Schultz is NOT the Centrist Party’s candidate. However, I wanted you to see how the Party leans. By contrast, the American Independent Party is completely different. They believe in the Judea-Christian values of our Founding Fathers (Schultz is Jewish). They also believe in States Rights for education. Again, Mr. Schultz is NOT the Independent Party’s candidate either.

So, I think it’s safe to say this ‘Centrist Independent’ COULD be a mix of the two principles. But, we also have to factor in Mr. Schultz has been a Democrat for many years.

I think you’ll understand why I wanted you to have some context before I show you what I found about Schultz’s education stance.

Where was his education stance ‘hiding’? It wasn’t in his pillars. No, it can be found in the “Howard’s Story” page on the website. I’ll admit the video has a catchy tune, there are bright colors and smiling faces. It’s all designed to ‘build you up’.

Warriors, if you didn’t know it, ASU has been involved with some pretty horrid things for K-12th grade education. Back in 2016, I wrote about their part in a YouTube Red Channel movie called “The Thinning”. It was all about students literally dying or someone they loved die if a certain score wasn’t made on the standardized test.

If you didn’t see it, I also wrote about Starbucks and the PBIS system.

Finally, on this candidate, I’ll share this with you:

Mr. Yang:

Warriors, if you’ve not heard of Venture for America, that’s ok. I’ll be sure to link the evidence for you.

To access the 2016 Annual Report, go here.
Warriors, if you use Netflix and have seen “Generation Startup” that’s the feature film about what VFA does. Jobs/economic for the community’s sake. While that’s good, the tag line for the movie has to do with ‘learning to fail’. That’s a key concept the CCSS Machine loves to use. By the way, Netflix is among the CCSS Machine members/groups seeking to destroy local control.

So, you know a bit about the company Yang founded. Let’s look at his 2020 Presidential campaign.

yang
To see all his policies/issues, visit this page.

Warriors, if you read “Andrew’s Story”, he’ll tell you he was raised to go after the American Dream. You’ll learn his ties to Brown Univ. as well as Columbia Univ. (Both universities are CCSS Machine member organizations. In Part 4, I shared both their ties to the Tavistock Inst.)

You’ll also see he tells you he had an education company, but doesn’t share the name or what other group(s) bought him out. Look below:

You may find this related article helpful in connecting Yang’s for profit testing company to Knewton.

Warriors, I hope you see the toxic ties to the CCSS Machine very clearly. It appears neither of these is the Anti Fed Ed champ we need.

Warrior/Citizen Actions:

Well, Warriors, we’ve done it, taken 5 articles to lay out education/educratic stances of the 20 candidates (and possible candidates) running for President in 2020. As you know the campaigns are on-going. As you know, they will only step up in appearances.

So, what DO we do with all the information I’ve given you? Yes, it’s been grueling to slog through all their websites (or lack of), but the reason I wanted to do this for the nation, especially you, my fellow Warriors, is we HAVE to make as much noise as possible!

I told you in Part One I wouldn’t tell you whom to vote for. However, whomever you see you most like among the 20, do this:

1) Attend as many meetings of his or hers as possible. Forget party allegiance, the politicians certainly have. Is this risky? Absolutely, BUT, gladly risk your comfort zone for the children, I am. So can you. Don’t develop tunnel vision, watch for debates, shows, etc. Listen to what’s said (or not said).
2) We all know in war (War Vs the Core) you have to hang out with the enemy from time to time. Just be prudent and don’t go alone. Whatever you do, be respectful, there is going to be enough strife. If you are rude in making your points, you’ll be discounted. Remember, these are people, not punching bags (words or fists).
3) Take the points about the candidates which trouble you the most and speak out! Steer the conversation, don’t give up! (Written ones are the best and provide a copy with facts and links to point to Anti Fed Ed truths.)
4) Write open letters, letters to the editor, call in to like minded radio shows, no matter how big or small. Request private media shows centered around these Anti Fed Ed truths the nation needs to know and hear. Make your own video and share.
5) Speak up, hold them accountable! That is part of a prudent voter/Warrior’s ‘job’.
6) Write to them, show them the roots to the agenda, the globalization of our nation via education, let them know, it’s unconstitutional, it’s criminal and they shouldn’t be a part of it!
7) Don’t kowtow or get star struck by these candidates, don’t worry about making a scene. Remember who you are fighting for: our kids, our young people, our freedoms, our choices.
8) Pepper their websites with Anti Fed Ed truth, not mainstream subjective BS.
9) Participate in citizen forums, round-table discussions. If you didn’t know what you know now, think about all those around you who will remain clueless, unless you speak up. Use your circle of influence. Stay in communication. Host ‘Did Ya Know?’ type neighborhood events. While we’re about serious business, we can have some fun, too.
Use this type of event to bring to light the candidates on education. Compare notes and discuss maturely.

(Think along the lines of “Horton Hears a Who”, ALL our voices, united against the CCSS Machine is imperative!)

What if you don’t like any of the 20 candidates?
1) Choose the one most closely related to your beliefs and WORK with them to bring them around to the truth.
2) These people MUST be reminded they are seeking to represent WE the People, not the special interests groups, lobbyists, or Big Corporations.
3) If the candidate isn’t willing to work with you or accept the truth, then you know they are ‘bought and paid for’ by the CCSS Machine and move on.
4) IF you find that out, share the news, so others will know. It’s better to be called an idiot for being right than a silent partner in the grinding down of American education.
5) Apply any of the other action steps above you desire.
6) Inform and ‘use’ your circle of influence. Provide updates for them.

Upcoming Election Resources:

As of this article, I can find no Republican Debate schedule. Back in 2018, the National Republican Committee voted to disband the Debate organizers and team. That doesn’t mean there may be no debates, but it means we need to be watching for them.

I did find this website, which has both the Ds and Rs information in one location. Use at your discretion.

Use the Commission on Presidential Debates for news updates. I’ve embedded the link to their Debate Applicant locations. (*Note: no 2019 or 2020 sponsors have been announced, but look at previous sponsors. Are there CCSS Machine member groups represented? If so urge a non-bias organization to step up.) You can also access previous Debate transcripts. These might be helpful in writing your letters.

The location for the Republican National Convention is Charlotte, NC.
The location for the Democratic National Convention is Milwaukee, WI.
(*Note: Are there any Warriors near either of these cities? If so, we should plan to meet somewhere. I live in NC, and, it just so happens not too far from Charlotte. I’d love to see a group near Milwaukee, too. We could do live presentations or updates.) 


The Democrats will conduct their Convention in July 2020.
The Republicans will conduct theirs in August 2020.

“The Prudence Files, Part Two”

Welcome back, Anti Fed Ed Warriors, it’s Part Two of my look at the 2020 Presidential race. In Part One, you not only got a feel for how I am putting the series together, but a close up look at the Senators running for the Oval Office.  Today, the close up is on  Representatives (and former DC leaders)??

pru1

As you saw in Part One, there are 20 candidates who have announced their candidacy and at least 13 others considering running. In both groups, you have current and former public servants and private citizens.
Below is the screen shot from Part One for the federal public servants. Note the Representatives for today’s article.

***Please note: Rep. John Delaney left his office  after the 2018 mid term elections.***

Rep. Ryan has 20 current education bills (or related) and one House Resolution which relates.

ryanbills
Reps. Moulton, Swalwell, and Gabbard share co-sponsorship of HR 1, 5, 6, and 1784. They also voted ‘yes’ to HR 1’s final House vote. Rep. Amash voted ‘no’ to HR 1.
Reps. Moulton and Swalwell share co-sponsorship of HR 51 and HR 865.
Reps. Gabbard and Moulton share co-sponsorship of HR 728.
Reps. Gabbard and Swalwell share co-sponsorship of HR 1384.
Rep. Swalwell shares co-sponsorship of HR 1733. Rep. Moulton is the sponsor of HR 1733.
Rep. Moulton shares co-sponsorship of HR 1109 and HR 1170.
**Note: HR 1 also embeds the automatic protection of the U.S. Dept. of Education (and other agencies) in the event of a disaster (natural or man-made).

Rep. Moulton currently has 8 education related bills. (*Note: from his Congressional page, his education stance.)
mobills
Rep. Swalwell shares co-sponsorship of HR 590.
Reps. Ryan and Gabbard share co-sponsorship of HR 873.
Rep. Ryan shares co-sponsorship of HR 1058.
Rep. Gabbard shares co-sponsorship of HR 1943. Rep. Gabbard is also the sponsor of HR 1587.

Rep. Gabbard has 7 Education related bills. Her education stance was featured in Part One.

gabills
Reps. Moulton, Swalwell, and, Ryan share co-sponsorship of HR 860.
Rep. Moulton shares co-sponsorship of HR 674.

Rep. Swalwell has 6 education related bills. His education/workforce stance can be found here.

swabills

Rep. Moulton shares co-sponsorship of HR 9 and HR 1368.


Rep. Amash has 2 education related bills. Warriors, as I pointed out in Part One, while voting ‘no’ to ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) was a good thing, it appears that’s been cast aside. Why would I say that? Look above, do you see the support for school vouchers?
School vouchers are a big part of, not only ESSA, but current federal budgets! From BallotOPedia, you can see he previously voted ‘yes’ to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. That Act has been kept in place. So how does it connect to education? Creating more P3s (Public Private Partnerships) in education, at all ages!

The first bill Rep. Amash has co-sponsored is HR 899, it’s the one bill which would shut down the U.S. Dept. of Education by Dec. 31, 2020. While I do agree the U.S. Dept. of Education should be shut down, it is absolutely NOT prudent to shut it down without REPEALING ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), first.

Something the Bill’s sponsor and co-sponsors didn’t attach to the bill. I’ve written previously about the ‘unintended consequences’ which would happen should this Bill become law. With the direction education is headed in, as well as the upcoming election, we don’t need to throw wisdom out the window. (*Note: the embedded article above features the 115th version of HR 899. The 116th version is the same except the termination date.)

The Second bill is HR  1910, which would end the Import/Export Bank. While that’s a good thing (for education), It’s doubtful this bill will pass.

*****************************************************
Former federal politicians running for President (or considering it)

1) Former Rep. John Delaney:

Warriors, as I shared above, Mr. Delaney left Congress to pursue the 2020 Campaign, full time. Here’s his website:

To see his education stance (and it’s pretty awful), go here. As a ‘bonus’ you’ll even see he mentions some of his work in education while he was in the House. Let’s not forget, he did vote “yes” to ESSA.

2) Former Rep., Beto O’Rourke:
Warriors, I know there’s been lots of questions about Beto’s stance on charters. I can tell you that Reuters has recently published his past support for them could be trouble. However, as an Anti Fed Ed Warrior, you need to know the non-profit his wife heads (which ‘improves education’) is a partner with the Gates Foundation.
As far as the official O’Rourke for President campaign website, his education stance is pretty scary. Strengthening education unions will only breed more globalism!

3) Former VP, Joe Biden:

Warriors, if you’ve followed my blog for a while, you will know I’ve already connected Mr. Biden (while he was the Vice President) to the CCSS Machine. Times haven’t changed at all.


To see the Biden Foundation information on education, go here. To see my articles on Biden, go here.

According to The Hill, if Biden does run in 2020, he’ll be the guy to beat.

4) Former Senator/Former Sec. Of State, John Kerry:

Warriors, if you missed the Kerry/Bush debate on education, I’ve got it right here! Kerry was in full support of nationalized standards. That was while Kerry was a Senator.

As the Secretary of State (State Dept., which is very much in the CCSS Machine/UN back pocket), Kerry’s getting us in the Paris Agreement (which has influenced education via climate change, even in 2019) was counted as one of his greatest accomplishments.

(Sources for the information seen above)

The CCSS Machine’s money (as seen in Part One). Regardless of the Senate, the House, or former public service, the campaign dollars show us quite a bit.

 

Warriors, use your prudence when looking at the other issues your candidate stands for. As we’ve seen from the Senators, the Representatives, the Vice President, and the Secretary, education connects to everything else.

Closing:

Warriors, in Part Three, I’ll be reviewing the Trump/Pence team’s actions in education. In Part Four, I’ll be exposing the State level politicians running for the Oval Office.
Part Five, will conclude the series with private citizens running, as well as, other election information.
Be watchful my followers, we’ve got much to do in the coming days.
**This just in, Rep. Swalwell was reported in Part One as considering to run, he has since confirmed it. 

“The Prudence Files, Part One”

Greetings, Anti Fed Ed Warriors, welcome to my latest series. All this week, we’ll look at the 2020 Presidential race.

“Prudent decision making” is key when exercising our right to vote. Being prudent is also associated with the roots of wisdom.

 

pru1

A Starting Point:

Warriors, let’s face it, the 2020 Presidential race is already crowded. By looking at the candidates NOW, we have a great opportunity to use our voices to SHAPE the race.

What I will NOT be doing in this series: telling you whom to choose. That is not my business nor place. I simply want to give you information no one else will dare. I will spare no candidate.

Why? Information, in our case, Warriors, is teamwork.
It’s teamwork we need and teamwork is how we work best when arming Warriors against federal education intrusions.***

 

socrates_teaching


We should use our prudence to back up our feelings we felt right after ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) was passed. 

Against-Common-Core-and-VoteThe Issues:

Warriors, according to the website called the “Top Tens”, the 2020 key issues are:
1) Nuclear Weapons, 2) the Middle Class, 3) War, 4) Health Care, 5) the Environment, 6) Education, 7) the National Debt, 8) Gun Violence, 9) Immigration, and, 10) Abortion.

The Top Tens author did boldly point out that education should be the #1 issue, but as I’ve learned in researching the candidates, for many, it isn’t even on their ‘radars’. So, they lack prudence in education, right off the bat.

Warriors, in fact, many have placed the Green Deal and/or Climate Change as their #1 issue. As we know, I’ve shown you how the Climate Change and Green Deal overreach into education.

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

As I stated in my last article, the series will be broken down in the following ways:
1) Current federal politicians (Senators first, then Representatives and former leaders), any current legislation related to education, the candidates & their stances on education, and, are they connected to the CCSS Machine in any way.
2) Pres. Trump’s review on education.
3) State politicians and their education stances/activities.
4) Private citizens running for President.
******************************************

The Race Begins:

dyk2020

The 20 candidates are (in no particular order/highlighted names will link to my previous research on them):

Rep. Tom Ryan, businesswoman Marianne Williamson, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Pres. Donald Trump, Sen. Cory Booker, Mayor Julian Castro, Rep. John Delaney, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Sen. Kamala Harris, Gov. John Hickenlooper,
Gov. Jay Inslee, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Mayor Wayne Messam, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Gov. William F. Weld, businessman Andrew Yang, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Rep. Justin Amash (source).

The 2 who voted “NO” on ESSA? Sen. Kamala Harris (CA) and Rep. Justin Amash (MI).
Warriors
, don’t rush to their sides just yet. Let me show you what I’ve found out about their education issue stances.

knotted

Warriors, as you see the very Anti Fed Ed action of voting ‘no’ is at the center of the knot. Very prudent, but notice the outlying points. These are what detract from the prudence.
*(Note: We’ll look at Rep. Amash’s information more in-depth in Part 2.)

 

Harris:
Other non-prudent moves by Sen. Harris include Medicaid for All (funds used in education are included), expanding early childhood education, embedding 21st Century Skills, keeping national testing, and expanding Higher Education. (*Note: other education stances can be found here.)
************************************************************
As far as the other Congress members who voted ‘yes’ on ESSA? I’ve put together a chart below:


 

The Other Federal Candidates Who May Join The Race:

Warriors, here are the other federal (current or former) leaders from DC, VP Joe Biden, Rep. Eric Swalwell, Sen. Michael Bennet, Rep. Seth Moulton, and former Sec. of State, John Kerry.

What ties to the CCSS Machine do these people have? Biden (LGBTQ education for all, Big Labor/Unions, CTE); Swalwell said ‘yes’ to ESSA; Bennet also said ‘yes’; Moulton said ‘yes’ and has added green jobs, STEM, and CTE to his stance; Kerry is tied to the Clintons and received campaign donations at one time from (then, citizen) Donald Trump.

Current Legislation From Those In Office Which Impact Education:

Warriors, be sure to use www.congress.gov to look up the Bills by number. I’ve included a brief statement of how these connect to education. If I’ve already written about any of these, they will be highlighted.

Sen. Warren currently has co-sponsored a dozen education related Bills.

Closing:

Warriors, in Part 2, we’ll look at the House of Representative Presidential Candidates as well as the former public servants. 

 

 

 

Educratic Semantics: “Competence”

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my last article, I showed you the at least 20 year old movement to ‘expand time’ in the name of ‘education’. If you read that article, you saw that the goal wasn’t a true academic advancement of oneself, it was more about a student/worker hurried up and churned out as a ‘competent’ skill based apprenticeship leading to a job.

slicedApple

However, what if I showed you, there’s a much more devious plan afoot?

Warriors, we once experienced history where Germany attempted to ‘rule the roost’. If you’re like me, you weren’t born then, so you didn’t live through those horrors.

Immediately after World War II, America was one of the 4 countries in control of the restructure. Many years later, the changes which were made, showed through in education. How? By way of the economic structure, the corporate structure, and, the government structure changes.

Yes, the US was involved in the German restructure by pushing for ‘democracy’. Since America’s a republic (by our Constitution), I wonder what would be different today, had the push been for a ‘republic’.

freeamericans

So, imagine, that in 2019, in America, some of those very Germanic restructured roots showed up. What would you do? What has OUR government done? What has OUR economy done for education? What has OUR corporate structure accomplished? 

********************************************************************
The educratic global shift we’ve seen is NOT the fault or total undoing of one country, it’s been a controlled and well financed group effort!

workedcycle
America’s ensnared in the alignment of education and workforce.

Enter the Word Game surrounding “Competence”:

Warriors, if you’re like me, every time you hear certain words, you cringe. Especially when you research items. You may also be like me, and see the larger picture looming in the background because you’ve seen so much. Case in point, “Competence”.

Germancompetency(Source for German/Latin roots)

****If you choose to access the German/Latin roots, you may need to use your internet tool for an English translation.*****

My fellow Warriors, you know how I’ve shown you, over the years, the word games used against us. I’m not assuming every educrat in DC or your State knows the watered down English version of ‘competency’; but knowing it has more to do with other things than true academics, do you see how it’s been used to further the agenda?!

liechalk

Look at it this way, ‘CBE, competency based education’: NOT ‘expert’ based education or ‘skill’ based, BUT ‘legally controlled and authoritatively carried out’ education!! 

English speaking countries may mean ‘skill based’, but NOT “expert based” or ‘legally/authority based’.
But, if the educrats did mean one version, and, assume you and I believe the other, then it’s the Latin meaning of ‘clashing’.

It’s also a ‘classic set up’, we’ve seen the CCSS Machine used repeatedly, you look one way, while I undermine the other way.

Three Blind Mice Clip Art N4 image in Vector cliparts category at pixy.org

So why, in the context of ‘competent’, would the German version be more accepted and in 2019?

****Because it is the closest to align with the UNESCO/OECD* plan for authoritatively controlled workforce based training NOT academic prowess!!****

(*Note: OECD is short for Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. UNESCO is short for the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization.)

2009humancapital

Warriors, why would it matter what the German usage and meaning of ‘competence’ really stands for? Because when it’s accepted as their nation sees it, it’s about a collective reflection of education interests of the society….not each student.

This is an approach DC has been taking for years. Especially since the Johnson Administration straight through to the Trump team. 

Come with me, Warriors, as I show you the German model America has heartily set us up to embrace without hesitation. (How much of the current system is based off Hitler’s? Read and find out.)

hitler

Vocational Education:

Warriors, Germany still calls education which trains you for a job or a trade as vocational education. Americans called it ‘vo tech’.

Some Americans, to this day, believe ‘vo tech’ is not only still an option, but should be taught. In 2006, that term ‘died’ and was replaced. (Yes, Warriors, another word game.)

That’s when our US government changed what the definition of ‘vocational education’ was. The ‘training’ portion was also redefined. How? The government funding!
However, even the CCSS Machine still uses ‘vo tech’ in America to confuse us!

voctegrave
Congress, at least, has finally stopped lying about how education is seen. Look below, this sentiment is readily spoken and shared by BOTH major political parties:

A German Commissioned Study:

Warriors, I found this undated (appears to be very recent, though) commissioned study by Bertelsmann Stiftung (an education based social change group. They heavily support a ‘school to work’* concept.) But, it’s WHERE I found it, you will be interested in. The American “National Career Pathways Network” website.
(*Something we’ve seen DC embed for years now.)

NCPNGer
(Source)

The German Study features an ‘expert’ from Germany who is considered the ‘go to’ guy on vocational tech training. His name is Professor Dr. Dieter Euler. He’s known across the world as the specialist for reforming vocational tech systems.

germanstudy
(Link to the complete Study)

Link to an abstract paper on the EC’s “Rethinking Education”

Some Of  The Study’s Points:

Warriors, I’ll share some of the most troubling points from the Study. I trust you can see the ways in which our nation, our government, and, our corporate overreaches have set the same shift up in American education. I encourage you to read the Study on your own.

1) The shift to work based learning (also called dual enrollment) should be the main focus of vocational tech/training. The main target? Citizens under 25 years old. (Page 14 has a brief history of combining education and work.)

2) Many countries are looking at the success of Germany’s system because it’s been spun as a ‘win/win’. Students get fast tracked education, employers get trained workers.

3) America’s not as developed in dual vocational tech, yet. But, the shift is being increased with ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) and its embedding of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), and HEA (Higher Education Act).

HEA is currently the last national US law to receive the ‘school to work’ makeover. Congress is dead set on increasing  the German based concepts. How? Increased CTE (Career Tech Education), which replaced ‘vo tech’, increasing apprenticeships and internships, increasing dual enrollment, and anything connecting them all.

4) The 11 Vo-Tech Reform Components can best be accomplished in ‘incremented innovation’ programs and learning. The shift in education and work training is also metered out in ‘incremented segments’.

5) Other concerns include which government or business group is in charge of  exams for certificates and degrees. In Germany it is the Chamber of Commerce and Industry as well as the German Confederation of Skilled Crafts. You’ll find this laid out in Germany’s 2005 Vocational Tech Training Act (Sect. 1, Paragraph 3); Austria’s 2006 Vocational Tech Training Act modulized certain jobs (meaning the selected jobs were taught and trained for in modules, or fast tracked pathways).

Switzerland’s cantons are in charge of all vocational based exams. (In America, we are divided into States, Swiss has cantons.) Cantons have their own government set-up, but they cannot contradict the federal confederation.

In the Netherlands, they are receiving lots of global attention in vo-tech education. Why? Their 1996 Adult and Vocational Technical Training Act * merged education and labor into 2 training tracks. One was/is school based, the other is dual workforce training (or vocational tech training). *See Point 2.4. Notice the regional vo-tech training centers.

All the countries mentioned above are using national credentialing systems. Why? The ‘big essential’ is ‘real life conditions’ can best be experienced in dual vo-tech training, not necessarily education (you’ll see that referenced on Page 30.)

Not from the German Study, but definitely related is the 2012 “Roadmap to Vocational Education and Training (VET) Systems Around the World.

Warriors, every ONE  of these are things are either already in place in America, or the framework is being laid out!! How? College and Career Readiness via ESSA, WIOA, HEA, and more!

The screen shot below is from an old article of mine on apprenticeships in America, but notice the wrench and hammer symbol.

Some of the companies here love CTE and Career Pathways. They also are unabashedly supportive of CC aligned citizens.



Study Warning Bells For Us:

1) By government and business ‘rule’ a ‘consensus principle’ will be put in place.
2) By government and business funding, education and training, especially for jobs will be ‘easier’. But at what cost of our freedoms will this be?
3) “Industry specific solidarity contributions”. What will these look like? Grants for apprenticeships!
4) A merger of economics, family, and youth via integrative vocational training (Norway has had this since the mid 90s).
5) A ‘flexible’ vocational education/training track for disadvantaged citizens.
6) “Quality standards” for vocational tech training and education mean laws, not scopes and sequences we’re used to.
7) Teachers and Trainers will have government controlled ‘hoops to jump through’. Their section begins on Page 52. Look for the “Ordinance on Trainer Aptitude”. Then, read what the UN (United Nations) has on this.
8) Class size changes will occur. Being done away with are the large, teacher led classes. What the shift to vo-tech training will produce (already in use in Denmark) is small ‘hubs’ or groups. These groups will spend 5 weeks at a time on one module, then switch to another. A large ‘completion logbook’ is kept on each person. This is their version of ‘personalized learning’.
9) Expect more ‘education research groups’ and ‘vocational analysis’. Germany’s model has been deemed so successful because all the reform is based off ‘in-depth’ research.

Professor Dr. Dieter Euler:

I was curious as to what other reforms this German ‘expert’ has been a part of.
Here’s what I found:
A) From 2006, A Swiss paper on ‘E-Learning’. A mandate for vocational training/education to be including in the SVC (Swiss Virtual Campus).
B) From 2010, Euler’s paper on developing and transitioning vocational technical training and demographics. He predicted a labor shortage by 2025. Below is the screen shot for the 2013 Journal/Report in appeared in.

C) In this undated McMillian Publishing proof, Euler was a contributor. So was the Aspen Institute. Euler’s topic was ‘Reflective Executives: A Realistic Goal for Modern Management Education’. A brief summary (Page 11) of Euler’s work reveals that ‘management education’ is more of a control tool, than it sounds.
Aspen Institute wrote on 2 different topics. One was on business and its relation to social and environmental issues, the other, “A Closer Look at Business Education: Sustainability in Curriculum”. This book was written exclusively for an audience of humanism followers. Warriors, it’s important to note that much of the UN’s overreach into education is rooted in humanism.

D) From 2013, The Routledge Companion to International Management Education had Euler write on “Reflective Leadership: A Vision for International Management Education”. As you can see (below) ‘international management education’ is tied to the UN’s design via the GRLI (Globally Responsible  Leadership Initiative). This screen shot is a bit hard to see, so be sure to go to the link above and read it there. When you read the GRLI and related information, you’ll see international managed education is NOT about training or educating people for managerial employment, it’s about controlling education altogether!

Closing:

Warriors, with the process for the HEA heating up before Sen. Lamar Alexander retires, we have got to inform our representatives and senators about what they are supporting and trying to further. We are America, not Germany 2.0!  We are free Americans, not UN led-by-the-nose citizens!

With all that you’ve learned in this article about the words being used against us, you know the UN/UNESCO/GRLI attempts to fast track apprenticeships (like Citizen Schools and the German model) will be lumped in under ‘lobbyists’ and ‘special interests’.
