When “Choice” Really Means “Confinement”

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, this is my second article on the federal overreach into education by the 116th Congress.

So, far we’ve seen the HR 62’s grab for our little learners with shifting Head Start and Early Head Start funds to block grants your Governor’s will be in charge of. The hidden in plain sight agenda there? “School choice”, especially via vouchers for low-income families.
*****************************************************************
Since ESSA codified Common Core and ALL that goes with it, let’s remember what ‘school choice’ REALLY looks like in 2019:

 

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

For today’s article, it’s HR 69, the ‘‘Ending Common Core  and Expanding School Choice Act’’.
This bill is 6 pages long and is sponsored by Rep. Bill Riggs from AZ. There’s one co-sponsor from CO (Rep. Doug Lamborn).
HR 69 is in the hands of the House’s Education and Labor Committee.

********************************************
Warriors
, before you break out the champagne and burn your anti Common Core t-shirts, let’s dig into this Bill as well as some breaking announcements from around the education news circuits which connect to ‘ending Common Core’.

 NO State has gotten rid of Common Core, it’s re-brands, assessments, resources, curriculum, professional development, etc. The ‘name’Common Core might be missing, but it is still there. You know it’s been proven repeatedly on my blog and others!
******************************************************
SO, does HR 69 get rid of Common Core or does it champion school choice?! Look at these tweets from Rep. Biggs. Do you see what’s missing?

From Jan. 24, 2019:

On the 25th of January, rather than promote the HR 69’s intent to “End Common Core”, Biggs once again touts ‘school choice’. Warriors, don’t you think if your Bill had the first three words as “Ending Common Core” that you’d shout it from the mountain tops?!


In this Tweet, near the time HR 69 was introduced in the 116th (1/3/19), note the promise Biggs felt was honored:

 

*********************************************************************************
First up: The Fine Print:


Warriors,  HR 69 has “End Common Core” in its title, but does it REALLY end CCSS?!
Let’s find out!

As I stated, this bill is only 6 pages long, the first 3 and 1/2 pages are devoted to expanding school choice via ‘money following the child’ schemes.

HR 69 also is targeting the money toward low-income families. This is dangerous in the false hope it gives. Money following the child is a worn out CCSS Machine tactic to attract those outside the current education system and draws them in, only to be trapped in the alignment. Homeschoolers are also among those targeted by ‘school choice’.

On Page 4, nearly at the bottom is ONE paragraph devoted to actually mentioning ‘Common Core’ and its supposed end.
But look how Rep. Biggs worded it. This, is not only a deception, it’s a waste of taxpayer money to even print this Bill!

Warriors, if you cannot read the excerpt from the bottom of Page 4, here it is, along with the balance of the paragraph on Page 5:
‘‘SEC. 1113. RULES OF CONSTRUCTION.  ‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—No officer or employee of the  Federal Government shall, through grants, contracts, or other cooperative agreements, mandate, direct, or control  a State, local educational agency, or school’s specific instructional content, academic standards and assessments, curricula, or program of instruction (including any requirement, direction, or mandate to adopt the Common
 Core State Standards developed under the Common Core State Standards Initiative, any other academic standards  common to a significant number of States, or any assessment, instructional content, or curriculum aligned to such  standards), nor shall anything in this Act be construed to authorize such officer or employee to do so. “

As I stated in the screen shot, there’s no need to stress that States are not to be forced into ADOPTING Common Core, that has already happened via RttT (Race to the Top) AND ESSA!

ESSA also removes ‘school choice’ as we knew it. How? The mandate for all education to be aligned to the same workforce based standards (teaching, resources, assessments, and, curricula) as laid out by WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act).

HSLDA Joins Jeb’s Yellow Scarves:

Warriors, back in 2018, I published an article which featured a scathing expose on Jeb Bush’s involvement with National School Choice Week and the iconic yellow scarves used to signify support.

Congress has embraced this annual CCSS Machine laced week. Rep. Biggs, among them. However, he is far from the only Congress member who supports and (falsely) believes ‘choice’ (meaning the type of education learned/taught) still exists.

Since ESSA’s passage, ‘choice’ is only applicable to location. So, those very so-called champions of education who keep telling the nation education isn’t defined by zip code, are in essence, MAKING education defined by zip codes. The very agenda they say they ‘hate’ is one they are backing 100%. Will we continue to support these double-speaking educrats?!

Remember, earlier I stated homeschoolers were being drawn in the school choice debacle?

HSLDA, Homeschool Legal Defense Association has come out of the shadows and into the spotlight. In this HSLDA press release you see how the organization is using ‘school choice’ to equate to educational freedoms. Sure, back before ESSA, we had educational freedoms. A few still exist, but, Warriors, the longer we see the ESSA mandates continue to increase (like those in-visits and the birth to 5 yrs overreaches), the freedoms will totally disappear.

Warriors, if you look more closely to what other CCSS Machine items HSLDA supports, you may be surprised. What may those be? Career Technical Education, education savings accounts, apprenticeships, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).  Frankly, I’m glad to see HSLDA remove all the behind the scenes support for the CCSS Machine and come out blazing. It means all the illusions of the past few years have been shattered.

 

CCSS/CTE impacts ALL educational choices, don’t be fooled!

Here Comes Betsy!

On January 23rd, during “School Choice Week” Sec. of Education, DeVos was reported as saying it’s imperative Congress support school vouchers and thereby school choice. The Daily Signal’s article tells the entire story.

In January, and on the U.S. Dept. of Education’s blog, a ‘myth vs fact’ guide to ‘school choice’ has been provided. However, it paints those opposed to school choice as somehow the problem. How like the federal government to point the finger at citizens rather than admit the reality of THEIR lies.

6) To see my collection of HOW many ways the CCSS Machine has already infiltrated homeschooling, go here.
7) Since the CCSS Machine’s ultimate goal is total control of our children (and ourselves), we see parental rights eroding a bit slower than school choice is disappearing. We know the ESSA mandates for family involvement and student success mean those in-home tracking visits (see the very first part of this article).
However, Illinois has just shared that a bill which FURTHER takes parental rights away is in the works. The Bill also will factor directly into home visits and family involvement. It’s called the Parental Bullying Bill.  The way in which this Bill will also add to the CCSS Machine’s control of children is through ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and mental/behavior health interventions. Most certainly all this will be included in ‘school choice’ options. (*Note: I am not condoning parental bullying in its true form, however, the broad strokes being used against parents needs to be of concern.)

Closing:

Warriors, my next article in the latest Congressional overreaches will look at the increase in educratic powers the NSF, National Science Foundation, is set for.

 

Current Nat’l Science Foundation work for CCSS includes professional development (for the teachers, leaders), infrastructure (computers, software), research (as in mind, education, etc.) and assessments (tests that measure)

 

It Isn’t All Sunshine And Nuts

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my last article, I shared with you how HR 62 would make a grab for our babies from a federal level. Included in that article was how MN is struggling to keep parents in control of their families.

The article before that,  I  showed you how FEPA (Foundations for Evidence-based Policy Making Act) would also assist in the grab for our babies, I showed you how OR was considering in-home visits. Also included was how UT has them firmly in place.

In both articles I stressed that the grab for babies/the in-home visits is not exclusive to one State. It’s in all the States and US territories ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) money goes to. If it hasn’t shown up in your State yet, hang on, it is in the works.

GA is struggling with recent news. So are KS and CT.

***For the remainder of this article, I share information sent to me concerning some other warning bells from the latest 3. Be sure to compare it to the information from OR, UT, and MN.

While the tactics may differ a bit, the overall goal of aligning babies to the CCSS Machine is the same. The CCSS Machine pushes ‘readiness’ at all levels, now, since ESSA, and the mandate to expand early childhood ‘learning’, as well as universal PreK, this is why we’re seeing SO much in the news.

1233416_726644914053517_244803995707399755_n
First Up, KS, The Sunflower State:

Warriors, Lisa H., shared this with me via email and wanted you to know about their ABC Program. No, it’s not for teaching little ones their alphabet. It’s called the Attachment Bio-Behavioral Catch-up Program.

 

Lisa shared that the group behind this Program (the United Methodist Health Ministry Fund) was on last year’s legislative calendar and appeared before the KS Education Committee. They are scheduled to appear before the KS Education Committee again this yearn for a follow up. The email went on to share that SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency, a part of the US Dept. of HHS), as well as others are fully backing removing ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences).

So is the CCSS Machine, Warriors, only it’s not for school readiness as much as it is micro-managing citizens. I wrote about this push headed up by the Rockefellers and being embraced by churches, law enforcement, etc. in my Resilience articles. )

What are Lisa’s concerns? Swabbing children’s mouths for cortisol levels and recording the entire in-home session with the parents and children.

While some may read this and think, “Oh, that’s not too bad.” The reason this ministry is able to intrude like this is due to the expansion of P3s (public-private partnerships) in ESSA for education! The in-home visits are part of ESSA’s supposed dedication to student achievement and family engagement.

hegelianed

What it REALLY is, is home invasion by the government. Take into consideration that our U.S. Constitution was supposed to prohibit such (4th Amendment), but with FEPA actively neutering 9 U.S. Constitutional Amendments, the 4th is severely at risk. FEPA also will tie to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996). Which, as we know, is used in health care.

Related for KS and other States:
The United Methodist Health Ministry was awarded $650,000.00 by the Kansas Early Childhood Initiative (part of the Kansas Health Foundation) under “access to care”. The Grant was given in 2017 and ends in 2020. The ‘access’ is the ABC Program. The Kansas Health Foundation is a massive P3 and was created as the result of the Hospital Corporation of America purchasing the non-profit Wesley Hospital.

Hospital Corporation of America can be found in 20 States and the United Kingdom. From their latest Annual Report (2017), this quote, “Within our markets, we worked to broaden our service line capabilities by investing in cancer, trauma, stroke, behavioral health and pediatric services. This focus centers on elevating clinical performance and
establishing consistent clinical protocols to achieve better patient outcomes across the
organization.” HCA receives Medicare/aid funding from the federal government, as well as private investors on the Stock Exchange. On page 15, you’ll see how HCA has psychiatrics listed as a way to compete in health care. Page 42 admits the use of third party data contractors to handle patient data. Page 46 gives the list of  the 20 States and the United Kingdom information.

Also joining with the United Methodist Health Ministry is the Kansas  Children’s Service League (KCSL). It’s a part of the National Prevent Child Abuse America. The KCSL is all about collaboration. As in the ‘village’ concept as shared by this Kansas educratic leader.

Kansas has embedded (2015)  a State Wide Initiative called “Kansans Can”. A vital part of the KC Initiative? The “Kansas Can: School Redesign Project”. Warriors, as we know that’s 100% U.S. Dept. of Ed fodder.

 

Next, Stop: GA (Peach State):

Warriors, you may know Georgia is personally, very dear to me. That said, the grab for babies is just as bad in the Peach State as it is in the Sunflower State.

Recently, it was announced that the PreK Development Grant the State received would go to DECAL. DECAL (Dept. of Early Care and Learning) will be“Using grant funds, DECAL will conduct a statewide ECCE needs assessment; develop a statewide strategic plan to strengthen the state’s ECCE system; create resources to inform families about available programs and services; develop groups and opportunities for early childhood educators to share best practices; and create supports for the state’s dual language learners and their families.” (*Note: ECCE is short for Early Childhood Care and Education.)

Under DECAL, the early learning program is called “Bright From the Start”. Warriors, look at the ‘peach packed agenda’ below:

Also, recently in GA , and via Senate Bill 15, the push to expand ‘school safety’ (another ESSA mandate) into private schools. In GA, that also includes homeschoolers. Warriors, as you’ve known, I’ve been warning for years that the federal overreaches in ESSA would assimilate these families.
This will increase, not only the intrusion into family homes, but also set up more data mining and control by Homeland Security Agencies.

Lastly, The Nutmeg State, Connecticut:

Warriors, one of my Anti Fed Ed Warriors,  Anne M. in CT, recently posted a picture about the United Way of CT’s grab for babies and their Moms.

Here’s a screen shot of the United Way in Anne’s community.

Also tied to the (National Inoperability Collective) NIC, is David Wilkinson. Wilkinson, according to his LinkedIN profile as a Director of the White House Office of Social Innovation (under Pres. Obama). You can also tie Wilkinson to the Ounce of Prevention Fund. Back in 2016, I shared with you the OPF’s grab at children via ESSA.

The 2018 NIC Symposium notes and speakers can be located here. The NIC announcement about the Symposium is where you’ll see the ‘wheel house’.

For All The States:

United Way is tied to Google and the United Nations, so, of course, ‘cradle to career’ is the alignment. United Way is partners with the CCSS Machine in many other ways and groups as well.

From 2016, United Way, President Obama’s Promise Neighborhoods (which was a codified mandate in ESSA), U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development and “Youth Build”. Also from that year, United Way and those ‘wrap around services’.

From 2017, United Way and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) for cradle to career coding.

If you would like to see the United Way’s influence on the current NC State Superintendent,  read this from the election season of 2016. Collectivism was/is the name of the game.

Closing:

Warriors, the cradle to career, then grave will keep being seen in the news as the ESSA mandates continue to ursurp the Tenth Amendment. In my next article, we’ll look at the federal misguidance on ‘school choice’ and the 116th’s bill to support the deception.

“A-hunting We Will Go”

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, do you remember learning the old English children’s rhyme “A Hunting We Will Go?” It was a fun song to sing along to. Maybe you taught your children this song.

I had forgotten the song until I saw an early January press release by the Committee on Education and Labor Republicans.

(*Note: The U.S. House Committee was formerly known as U.S. House Committee on Education and Workforce, but has been renamed U.S. House Education and Labor Committee. We’ll look at more in-depth at this change and what else it means in a bit.)

What in the world would the Ed/Labor Committee do to remind me of children’s songs?
Look below:




Since the 116th Congressional Session has begun. Rep. Foxx is no longer chair women. She is the Senior most Republican, though.

That’s right, Warriors, Preschool Development Birth through 5 grants.
What will these grants do? Foxx’s statement shared this, ”
“These preschool development grants are an important step in empowering communities to serve children and families more effectively and efficiently. “
*********************************************
Warriors, if you’ve followed me long, you know I’ve covered Foxx’s selling out our nation to the CCSS Machine and the globally aligned workforce education. She has worked hard to help establish this. The new Democratic leader, Rep. Bobby Scott, will be no different.
********************************************

From the information I can locate on the Dept. of Health and Human Services website about the Grants, 45 were awarded.
One went to the U.S. Virgin Islands (via Health and Human Services) and one went to the District of Columbia (via the Education Office).
The rest were given to 43 States. Four grants (WA, NY, NM, and NJ) will find their Preschool Grants in their respective Depts of Children and Family Services.
The next group (7) can find their Preschool Grants in their Health and Human Services Depts. These are RI, NC, NE, MT, HI, CO, and AR.
Following these groups, the next will be 15 State Depts. of Education. (VA, TX, OR, ND, NV, MN, MI, MD, ME, LA, KS, FL, DE, CA, and AZ.
The largest group (17 States) will find Preschool Grants in various Depts or Offices.
UT’s is in Workforce Services
VT’s is in the State; PA and KY’s were awarded to their Commonwealths
SC’s is in Social Services; IN’s Family and Social Services received the Grant
OK’s grant went to the Partnership for School Readiness Foundation, Inc.
OH’s Preschool funds will be in the Job and Family Services Dept.
NH is the only State where the Preschool Grant was awarded to the University (of NH)
MS’s grant went to the Community College Board
MA’s went to the Executive Office of Education
IA’s will be in the Dept. of Management
IL’s went to the Governor’s Office
GA’s Dept of Early Care and Learning; CT’s Office of Early Childhood; AK’s Dept of Education and Early Development; and AL’s Dept of Early Childhood Education will be where their Grants are

These Grants began 12/31/18 and will end 12/30/19. Each Grant Award can be re-applied for by the end of 2019.


Warriors, let’s take into consideration that many of the community wide services akin to birth through age 5 are part of government programs/initiatives and as such, have funds attached to them.

Sadly, with those funds, come data strings which are attached to each child and family partaking of the services. While this doesn’t SOUND bad, it is very bad.

Life-long data tracking is a part of globalism where you are constantly monitored.
Since many of these services attach to your child’s health, this should be VERY concerning.
Also, because much of this is being accomplished through education, bear in mind that due to the nature of schools, your child’s privacy is at its WEAKEST in school.

While the government run schools (as well as those which receive government) funds are to uphold the U.S. Constitution, the privacy issue is a mixed bag. The Fourth Amendment ALLUDES to privacy rights, but doesn’t state your private personal data is protected.

However, take into consideration that FEPA’s (Foundations for Evidence-based Policymaking Act) passage by the President, actually erodes our 4th Amendment. How? “Unintended consequences” in data mining (aka: data rape). Think what this means for your children. 

**Then, factor in that some States, like OR, are now ‘willing’ to universally conduct in-home visits to check early childhood education/care. Warriors, go back up and look where OR’s PreK Development Grant is, their State Dept. of Education. 


**Just released from NC, a subjective early childhood care/education study was released. The Raleigh News and Observer ran an opinion article about the study. The N & O (as it’s known) is a liberal, left-leaning media source. The professor who wrote this opinion has some very misleading things to say. Read it for yourselves. Why? There are items of truth omitted which the average reader will never know. Below, I’ve provided a basic list of what was left out.

1) The professor conveniently left out that the children MUST take an intrusive data mining assessment just to enter Kindergarten!

2) He left out how Smart Start uses it’s Early Learning Head Start grants for Kindergartner readiness, in home visits and more parent nanny state activities.

Warriors, it is Early Smart Start and its related programs which usher in those in-home visits. What does this have to the with ESSA and/or FEPA? ESSA’s recalculations of Title One funding and the massive increase in power given to the U. S. Dept. of Health and Human Services; FEPA’s need for ‘evidence’ (aka data) to pigeon hole every family into government entitlement programs.

**We also need to remember that ESSA has at least 2 sections of mandates and requirements for Family Engagement. How better to ‘engage’ a family than to basically take control of the babies?!

Ties to More Than We Realize:

Warriors, the professor chosen to write the article is a Pritzker Professor of Public Policy at Duke University. Duke is hardly lily white and purely driven when it comes to our children’s education. However, that’s not our concern at the moment. What is is WHAT is a Pritzker Professor of Public Policy? A professor with tenure and a leading scholar on Early Childhood Ed).
If you wish to see how these scholars are chosen, here are the requirements.
Pritzker Foundation is based out of Chicago, IL and has national influence on early education, health care, and other such. They are more concerned with Return on Investment than actual quality of life, but their spin says they care and have for over 20 years.
J.B. Pritzker is IL’s new Governor. J.B. is one of the family members named in the Foundation.
Here are Gov. Pritzker’s agenda items for education/child care. While this appears to be for IL only, look at the national influence topics again.
Link: 
Why would Pritzker choose Duke to bestow funds to? It’s J.B.’s alma mater.
(Supposedly J.B. is the second most wealthy politician as well as the richest governor is the nation. He’s got ties to Hilliary Clinton, and ChicagoNEXT group, a global tech hub. With the (United Nations) UN’s push for Smart Cities, Chicago is already knee-deep in the alignment. Global tech=global data..data harvested from early learners is included.)ChicagoNEXT is a P3 (public private partnership) and works in tandem with Rahm Emanuel.

Pritzker joined Bill Gates and several other CCSS Machine foundations to create the First Five Years Fund.
 I wrote about the First 5 Years Fund in two articles, 2016:
a) While this one has some NC information, I have it geared more for national use. The First Five information is directly below the comparison of (then 3 bills).

b) This one gave Warriors an excellent way to track the early learning alignment in their area by using the town I live in. You’ll see First Five Year and ESSA are directly linked.

Pritzker also partnered with Goldman Sachs (a huge UN supporter/partner and CCSS Machine member group) to create an early learning social impact bond (SIB).
If you wish to see the Pritzker Foundation’s Childhood website, go here.
******Warriors, then scroll up and see where IL’s Preschool Development Grant landed..the Governor’s Office!!!

SIBs are tools being used by globalists to align communities for not only agenda, but data rape. This Pritzer/Sachs SIB was in Utah, 2013.



Fast forward to 2019, and in-home visits in UT are already in full swing. There’s even an entire Dept. for them. I’m linking you to their “Resources” page so you can see the customized cell phone based educational items being sent to babies. From this page, you can easily access the home page. 

Warriors, you also may find it helpful to see the ‘fact sheet’ on in-home visits and ‘family engagement’ from ESSA. The CCSS Machine group, civilrights.org created this back in 2016. (*Note: every State must show evidence of family engagement, including in-home visits. Depending on the situation, funds may be Title One, HHS, or funds from ESSA’s mandate for school turnarounds.)

The danger is these visits are ‘universal’ in nature, so no child is will be left out.


To access the Zero to Three articles I’ve published, go here. Where you’ll find the most ‘damage’ to families, is the overreach into family health care at school. Below is a screen shot related to Zero to Three.


Closing:

Warriors
, if ever there was evidence Lamar Alexander’s words about grabbing our babies has come  upon us, it IS now. As I pointed out in the “Consequences” article, ANY law which violates our U.S. Constitution does not and should not be followed. ESSA, and now, FEPA are two such ‘laws’. 



 

“Smarty Pants”?! Not!

It’s the first weekend of 2019, Anti Fed Ed Warriors! One of the things media loves to do is create countdown lists from the past year. If it’s not a countdown, it’s a ‘best of’ list to celebrate some minute event. You know, like “2018’s Best Places to Get a Hot Dog” or such.

subjectobject
CCSS: Using subjective groups to appear objective to us.


I don’t really pay attention to those lists. However, there was ONE which did catch my eye. It was a list of the most educated towns in all 50 states. The catch? It’s from a corporate viewpoint (ie: Big Business or Big Biz). With the educratic BS the CCSS Machine has been spitting out for years via Big Biz about education, we need to take a closer look, in my opinion. What makes the corporate world think it’s such an ‘expert’ in education, anyway?!

Three Blind Mice Clip Art N4 image in Vector cliparts category at pixy.orgThe “Survey”:

Business Insider used U.S. Census Bureau data  to publish the “Most Educated Town in Every State” in December 2018.
You had to be at least 25 years of age, have a bachelor’s degree, and have at least 1,000 citizens in your town. From these 3 items, Business Insider discovered that across the nation, education levels are different (gee, really?) and educational achievement can be found at all kinds of levels. (again, do we really need a business publication to tell us that?)
Here’s the map Business Insider created:

biusa.jpg

A quick side note about Business Insider, it’s a German owned tech/digital/business group. Founded in the US, a powerhouse German publishing company bought the group in 2015. While the reliability of BI (Business Insider) has been questioned, the one point remains: millions still access and accept the news the media group sells/shares. Another fact, you’ve got a German based company accessing U.S. Census data.

So, Here’s A Question:

Warriors, is there any connection of the “Most Educated” towns to those “Smart Cities” across America? Look below at the same map from Business Insider with some emphasis I added. Yes, there’s an absolute connection!! 

smarteducate

Where did I find my information to make the connection between “Most Educated” and “Smart Cities”? The U.S. Dept. of Transportation. Why DoT? Smart Cities must change your city’s infrastructure to succeed.

ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) actually mandated innovation and infrastructure changes to be made. However, ESSA’s not the only law of the land allowing this. Many other federal laws are, as well. Anything law with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) will impact infrastructure changes.

Why all the changes? To align our nation with the Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations and UNESCO. Many experts on “Smart Cities” will tell you the proof exists to point to a global agenda of being tracked, data mined (aka: data raped) constantly in these Smart Cities. What if you live in the country or rural areas?

How will you be tracked? You’ll be herded into a “most educated” or “Smart City” near you. For example, in the map I created, NC has the ‘most educated’ town near Asheville, NC. Asheville isn’t near a bonafied “Smart City” right now (it is in an “Innovation Zone” for NC). The nearest “Smart City”? Charlotte. 

What’s interesting about Asheville (besides having a ‘most educated’ label now) is that is uses a data raping innovation system called “Passport”. Supposedly Passport is such a hit with big cities and small towns because it can help relieve congestion. Other ‘benefits’ can help police or even make your city/town safer. If you have a ‘safer city’ you have a less stressed citizen group. The less stress you have, the better your mental health will be. I kid you not. Access the ‘white paper’ research behind this, here. Then,see for yourselves a summary in the screen shot:

passportsafe

Think about the ESSA mandates and mental health grabs via ‘Safe Schools’. “Safe Schools” must be in ‘safe cities’. Look at your State’s legislation concerning ‘safe schools’ it’s more control, not more freedom or safety.

Enter The OAS (Organization of American States):

Back in 2016, I showed you that the US was involved in the OAS (Organization of American States) and that some research had been done to connect OAS to “Smart Cities”.

Here’s a screen shot from the OAS Ministers of Education meeting (held in 2017, in the Bahamas):

oassdgWas America there at this meeting in 2017? Yes:

oregonduckoas(*Note the badge on around the lady’s neck. The upper right corner has “OAS”.)

Warriors, see the US Flag? See the message by “OAS”?
oasusflag

Then, this US lady (unknown to me). Look at her expression:

usladyoas
Since much of the OAS mission for education is to add more technology, more early childhood learning all while adhering to the UN’s SDGs, you may like to see what the 10 SEL (Social Emotional Learning) global goals are or the 6 Global Competencies we’ll have to all have. I showed you that and how it ties to ESSA and school safety (aka community safety) in October 2018.

Warriors, in 2018, OAS joined Amazon Web Services for a joint ‘research’ paper (aka: slick spin doctor document) on Smart Cities and technology. At the center? Five G (5G Technology).

Warriors, if you want to learn about the ‘social acceptance’ expected of We the People when it comes to “Smart Cities” we need only to look at the short video featured at the 2018 Connected  Smart Cities Conference. The Conference is a part of the “Open and Agile Smart Cities” (OASC) based in Europe.

Within the 7 minutes you’ll learn quite a bit about the agenda, you’ll be able to apply some of what’s already in place in Europe to America, especially as business stands to gain a fortune via “Smart Cities”. You’ll be able to learn citizens have a manifesto to adhere to, that P3s (public private partnerships) must be used. (*Note: P3s are fascism in nature, therefore totally un-American, yet we’re so run over by the CCSS Machine and DC legislation,{ESSA’s an example} it’s treasonous.)

There are quite a few ‘alphabet soup’ acronyms given by the speaker. Here is a brief list and how it connects to the US and/or Smart Cities:

DIN: (Deutsches Institut fur Normung) This is a German Investment Group with strong ties to American auto industry, materials testing, internet, and healthcare technology). DIN’s roots go back about 100 years.

EC: European Commission (has an Urban Agenda for citizens which involves compliance. Also works hand in hand with the EU, European Union) Many workforce/education models from the EC have been embedded in US legislation, mainly at the federal levels.

BSI: British Standards Institute offers business, medical, and industry parameters. Has an office in the US and impacts several aspects of daily living. Also deals in investing.

ETSI (2017): European Telecommunications Standards Institute. Handles technology and digital aspects. From the “Smart Cities” aspect, it has developed  Context Information Management (harnesses all the smart device data available*. For example, your smart meter, smart car, in home assistant, etc.) and City Digital Profiles. (*the pdf is from the Open and Agile Smart Cities Conference explaining how the data is collected. There are a few good illustrations.)

ISO: International Organization for Standards This international group is not only key to business and industry, but is 100% involved with the SDGs.

ITU: International Telecommunication Union This Union is big on technology, internet, data, and, AI (artificial intelligence). ITU is a part of WSIS (World Summit on the Information Society). WSIS is a key UN partner. In April 2019, the Summit will focus on the advancement of the SDGs and includes UNESCO as well as a host of CCSS Machine connected groups tied to all of these listed.

Horizon 2020: This is an EC massive initiative. Basically, it’s Research and Development for innovation for the entire European Commission. Not only does it impact businesses, but will use job skill training for employment. Backed by P3s (as the EC calls it P2P) and legislation. Of the information I found, the funds to pay for all this alignment have been extended. One of the grants used was to break hundreds of years old religious practices to promote tolerance. Science and healthcare are also involved.

EFSI: European Fund for Strategic Investment is part of the EC as well. Under the EFSI is what is called the Juncker Plan. The Plan is to find ways to make Europe as mighty as in once was by investing in all aspects of life.

EIB: European Investment Bank is the financial arm of the EU. They invest heavily in “Smart Cities”.

Closing:

Warriors, I’m not sure how ‘smart’ the CCSS Machine thinks it is, I do know it’s got a bloated image of itself, especially when it’s assumed we are ‘dumb bunnies’ who will roll over and accept all this blindly. The reason I took such time to dig into this one Business Insider article was I knew the real truth would never come out. There is much, here which connects to education, but there’s EVEN more which shows the pattern to assaulting our freedoms! We MUST share this type of truth, my followers. If we will not stand for freedom, who will?!

Lost Somewhere On The Road

To my fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors, do you know where we are? Do you know where we’re going? Before you think I’ve totally lost my mind, I do have a couple of reasons for asking these two questions.

A) We’ve just passed the 3rd anniversary of the signing of ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) into law. Of course, this was after both chambers of Congress sold our students, teachers, schools, and, taxpayers down the river. Let me see if I can illustrate the importance of how ESSA has failed us, even before the ink was dry on the paper.

From a recent conversation with my fellow Anti Fed Ed Warrior, Betty:
“We’re not better off now than we were before ESSA.” When I asked her exactly what she meant, she told me it was much like attending a Tupperware party. You’re invited to someone’s home, you see the products demonstrated and well those tight fitting lids adhere to their containers.

You hear how great this is in protecting your food and you can save money. Then, you place an order. You take the product home, expressing to your family how great this will be in protecting food and saving money. When you take out your shiny new Tupperware container and lid, you can’t get the seal to adhere properly, no matter how much you try. You repeatedly try to get your Tupperware to perform exactly as the sales professional showed you. Nothing. Frustrated, you sit down in defeat and realize, you haven’t saved money. You haven’t been able to protect the food, so it spoils anyway.
Warriors, apply this concept to education in the ESSA Era.
***************************************************
B) We’re also about the see a new session of Congress take hold in America. Where will that lead us? If it’s anything like the outgoing session, it’s one step closer to more UN (United Nations) control, especially in education aligned to workforce.

To Congress, We the People are as lost as can be and can only be saved by their control. For We the People, we know where our nation is heading much better than we’re given credit for.

The U.N.’s Upset:

Warriors, did you know that in October of this year (2018) the U.N. was featured in an article where the organization was actually quite upset that their precious SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) 2030 target for complete control is ‘way off track’?!

upsetUN

The article also goes on to point out that there are a lot of pessimistic views that by 2030, the global alignment will be complete. The article also lays out how determined the U.N. is to force everyone into the SDGs.

Frankly, I could care less that the U.N.’s upset or that they are trying to pass off the SDGs as ‘aspirational’. If you’ve read the Goals, seen the massive amounts of federal and State level legislation implementing the SDGs, you know these Goals are directives and/or mandates.
**********************************************************

I know, Warriors, we hate those SDGs, especially after seeing how much damage they’ve done to education.
The SDGs have been woven into American education well before ESSA, but did you know some of the ESSA mandates echo the U.N.’s SDGs?
In some instances, almost word for word!

ESSA certainly upped the ante on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math).  To those of us fighting the CCSS Machine, we know STEM is 100% an educational tool being used against us. Not only in education, but in our communities. We anti Fed Ed Warriors know STEM is directly from the SDGs.

BUT, ESSA also upped the ante on workforce aligned education. That, too, my Warriors, is 100% U.N. directed. You can’t have a global unity without a unified workforce. You can’t have a ‘greater good’ if some of your workers are conformed.

This leads to WHY we shouldn’t disregard the U.N.’s disappointment…

I’m not suggesting we, as Warriors, be afraid of the U.N. I’m pointing out where we need to armed and ready for where the U.N. re-directs its efforts to align American education.

I’m showing you where to look to see HOW the U.N. attacks America, as a freedom-loving nation. As long as we are tied to the U.N. in ANY way, we are a member-state. As such, we must comply.

Also from the article (above) there’s one example for compliance. It’s  the fact that in Ghana, a national ID program has been rolled out to create better access to health care, education, etc. (Sound familiar?) However, with a national ID card, you’re also much easier to data track.

Which is why the other facts from the article are important. They show how hungry for personal private data the U.N. is; how big data is here to stay; how groups like the Gates Foundation Goalkeepers are helping the SDGs along. Warriors, we cannot assume that because the U. N. hasn’t gotten what it wants up until now, that we’ll be safe. Hardly. We must stay feisty. We must remain alert and pro-active.

Make NO mistake: it has been a calculated plan for STEM and Common Core to be directly related.

Where Else The Road Leads:

Recently, I was researching for an interview about the U.N.’s overreach into American Education. I found the trail leads to a couple of places you Warriors may know (or may not). The latest FAFSA information for those students wanting to go to college (or are being forced to fill the form out to graduate high school) contains all kinds of information which could be another article all by itself. However, as many times as the College Board is mentioned, I looked at bit closer. Buried in the College Board’s fine print for taking the SAT exams is this:

collegeboardunesco

(The College Board document can be found here. The added emphasis you see is from the UNESCO Archives as well as the U.S. State Dept. Archives.

If you wish to see where else UNESCO Coupons are issued or accepted, visit here.
To see the complete list of USA UNESCO Coupons suppliers and those groups accepting them, find that here. Warriors, you’ll be armed with the knowledge that some key CCSS Machine groups are in the UNESCO Coupon system.

Another road stop? The UNESCO ASPNet, spread across the globe. Here in the USA, 27 States and the District of Columbia are members of this network. What’s ASPNet?
The U.N.’s Associated School Project Network.

ASPNet was founded in 1953 to encourage world-wide peace and international understanding. Now, I couldn’t find out how many US schools have been in this program since its inception, but I can tell you that in 2018, there are 52 ASPNet Schools.
Eighteen States and D.C. are involved: FL, NY, WY, MD, PA, CT, WI, VA, CA, NJ, LA, MA, OH, MT, MN, GA, VT, HI, NH, and DC. These schools range from preK to college.

What’s ASPNet’s Goal? It’s nothing more than a front for global citizenship grooming:

Warriors, if you’ve not seen the Global Citizen Pledge (which will replace the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance) here it is:

Closing:

For all it’s supposed unity, the U.N. is the WORST at keeping peace. They are ‘champions of coercion’ at creating a false sense of peace. Think of it as ‘my way or the highway’. Or, put another way, the big bully on campus.

Ironically, the U.N. is bending over backwards to rule out any and all bullies, except themselves.
For all the supposed freedom of ideals the U.N. claims the SDGs give us, there’s clearly only ONE road the U.N. really wants the rest of the world on: theirs.

By forcing the US into its SDGs mold, we’re seeing a fast lane on the U.N. road lead us to the  destruction of education, of our way of life, our beliefs, and our freedom.
