Your Home…or Bust!

6edtech
Warriors Against the Core, I do hope your Labor Day Weekend was tremendous.

A New Lead in My Local Newsletter:

I must admit, Warriors, the CCSS education reform hasn’t died now that ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is law. BUT what has changed are the ‘in our faces’ moves the CCSS Machine is making when it comes to not just education in the classrooms, but everywhere else, too! As we know the main goal isn’t just transforming education, but rather, our entire nation. Too much research (from this blog and countless other Warriors) has been produced for this to be a fallacy.

So, what could possibly be the ‘new lead’? What newsletter? How is this to impact me when we don’t live in the same location? What does this have to do with the CCSS Machine or ESSA? My dear Warriors, I’m so glad to share the answers below.

First, the short answers. Longer facts will follow.

1) The ‘new lead’ is the local cable company has a new program just in time for ‘back to school’.
2) The newsletter is one which is included monthly in the city utility bill.
3) This is happening everywhere.
4) It connects (literally) your town’s infrastructure to the CCSS Machine and ESSA (via funds). It also takes in WIOA funds.

Fact #1:  “My” local cable company is a P3 (public private) partnership/entity. I don’t support it at all. Never have. At that point, my decision wasn’t based on education research. It’s just a bad idea to use public funds for something the town has no right to use as was chosen. Our voices, as taxpayers, weren’t important.
The company’s name? “MI-Connection” (short for ‘Mooresville Iredell-Connection’. (Mooresville is the town, Iredell is the county) To say the enterprise has been welcomed, successful, and problem-free would be an outright lie.
The MI-Connection’s ‘new’ program? It’s called “Reach”. Actually, the ‘Reach Program’ is a 4 year old P3 between the cable company and the local school district. “Reach” stands for ‘Reach Every Available Community Household’ Program.

There are catches each household has to be subjected to. However, before we dig into REACH, look at the picture above. Look at the turquoise color on the right hand side of the emblem. “ALL PROVIDERS WELCOME”. I first shared that emblem not long after ESSA was passed as a way to illustrate the damming strings about to be used against our schools, communities, and homes. It’s happening everywhere, but we must be savvy in seeing it.

The REACH catches (qualifiers) each family must have to be involved in the Program:
a) at least 1 children (4th grade or higher) enrolled in the MGSD (Mooresville Graded School District)
b) enrolled children must also be enrolled in the National School Free/Reduced Lunch Program.

Warriors, we know ESSA promised local control. But have you picked up on the National participation when it comes to lunch?! This is yet another clue that ESSA lies!

Fact #2: MI-Connection serves 3 communities, not just one. If you want to see the REACH webpagehttp://www.mi-connection.com/index.php/community/intreach
If you want to learn how the 3 communities are served,

If you’d like to see the embarrassment MI-Connection is to NC, this article from the Coalition for a New Economy, is a good one. http://www.coalitionfortheneweconomy.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/10.31.12-GON-MI-Connection-Final.pdf

In the Approved 2014-15 City of Mooresville Budget, look how much the telecommunications company costs. Taxpayer funds are used in supporting this.

Fact #3: Isn’t it enough our taxpayer money is used for the educational alignment to the CCSS Machine? Must it also be our TVs and computers?!

In my “ESSA and Digital Overload” article, I shared with you HOW the TVs and computers in our homes were to be ensnared. Here’s an excerpt, “Pages 485-488: The consortia for digital learning and state funding. What the uses of the funding mean and how they tie to digital overload.
Page 630: Preschool and ‘Ready to Learn’ digital content, especially via PBS (Public Broadcast Stations).
Page 943 begins Section 9210 of the ESSA Law. This is the biggest overreach of all!
Why? “Student Home Access to Digital Learning Resources”! To find out how successful students are at HOME, a Study conducted by the Director of the Institute of Educational Sciences (IES) no later than 18 months AFTER all portions of ESSA are in place! Details of the Study will be found on Page 944.” (*Note: entire article, https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2016/02/04/essa-and-digital-overload/)

I urge you to read it, especially for the PBS information. You can also link to the IES article where the in-home technology assessment is broken down.
The IES article (in case you miss the link at the bottom of the page on the Overload article) https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2016/02/05/weekend-news-the-ies-and-the-essa/

If you missed my article where I directed you to discover how digitally upgraded, or not, your State is, see: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2016/02/08/state-digital-education/

If you’ve not seen how I connected the E-Rate legislation to the Common Core Machine (which certainly come in handy for ESSA’s infrastructure plans):
http://preventcommoncore.com/?p=1223

Fact #4: Since I first published the above article, what’s changed with the E-rate? How does it play into ESSA?

From the USAC (Universal Service Administration Company), look at the highlighted paragraph in the retirement letter from the Vice President.

erateup
Millions of students AND patrons of public libraries! ESSA and WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) have that aspect covered in whole-community alignment via grants and funding!  If you’d like to know HOW, please refer to my article “Hitting the Books, Part 2”.  https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2016/07/03/hitting-the-books-part-2/

The USAC is connected to the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), see below.

usac

According to the USAC, they’ve been around since 1997, and are a part of the NECA (National Exchange Carrier Assoc., Inc.) USAC is NECA’s not-for-profit arm. What does the NECA do? They oversee your local telecommunications companies!!

To learn more about USAC, http://www.usac.org/about/about/who-we-are/default.aspx
(*Note: be sure to look at the Board of Directors. Especially the representation of the Board. Education and your local cable operators are definitely involved. See: http://www.usac.org/about/about/leadership/bod.aspx )

As far as NECA’s participation, their website explains for you why tariffs (taxes) are collected for telecomunnications is a great thing. Basically it’s for the latest and greatest technology, faster internet service, including the data collection. Did I find any connection between NECA and ESSA? In an unexpected way, yes. See the screen shot:

NCEAsenate
I found this on their page for Washington, D.C. activities, which resume today. See:
https://www.neca.org/article.aspx?listid=26972&id=13179

Is there more, though? Yes, NECA is big on increasing digital literacy in America. I found 3 connected DL (digital literacy) programs to NECA.
One is Digital Literacy from our federal government; another is a national program for connecting students with National Free or Reduced Lunches to the computer; the last one will sell you computers, complete with Windows 10 (a mammoth data mining tool).

To see the sales pitch website service program, http://arrowdirect.com/
To see the federal government’s DL website (housed in the National Telecommunications and Information Admin. of the U.S. Dept. of Commerce), http://www.digitalliteracy.gov/
(*Note: the name of the initiative, “Connect to Compete”; as in job seekers. Think, ESSA and WIOA.)

digitalbadgework

The last website will lead us right back to where we began, the REACH program. Remember that one of the qualifications is each participating family must have their child in the National Free or Reduced Lunch Program? Remember how  I said this was happening everywhere?! This is the ‘mother lode’! It’s called “Connect2Compete”.

“Connect2Compete” is a flagship operation of “EveryoneOn’s”. What’s “EveryoneOn’s”? Another national non-profit organization dedicated to wiping out America’s ‘digital divide’.

It just so happens ESSA takes full advantage of this. HOW? Well, the Board of Directors former careers plays a part, as does the Advisory Council. Between the Microsoft folks, ConnectEd, and many others, the digital ramping up in our homes, schools, and communities is all but a ‘done deal’. But that still doesn’t answer how ESSA, a national law takes advantage of Connect2Compete. Look below, Warriors:

connectagenda
EveryoneOn also has a 100% give back program where your community-based projects can receive computers. ESSA’s got that angle, too. How, the Wrap Around Student Achievement Supports/Services, the 21st Century Community Learning Centers, and more! Who helps fund this 100% service? Of the 3 Foundations listed, only one stands out as CCSS related. The Wasserman Foundation. The Wasserman Foundation appears to be rather intimate with the Clinton Foundation, don’t you think?

Closing:

Warriors, it should be easy to see that we have a tremendous amount of digital jargon to combat. Let’s do this! Remember, the CCSS Machine will not stop until It’s in your home. Use your 4th Amendment rights! Use the 10th Amendment.

Following Up

This article is to follow up on the bombshell dropped yesterday on the AFT (American Federation of Teachers), NEA (National Education Association), TURN, and other CCSS Machine members funneling money to reform our educational system into a labor force management system.

Many anti CCSS Warriors not only read the bombshell and shared it, but came forth with MORE evidence! Each has asked me to share it with you.

To keep everything consistent, here is the link to yesterday’s article:
https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2016/05/03/turn-the-ccss-page-please/

In it you were able to see how the Broad Foundation and the Gates Foundation have been the main funding groups. You saw how those teacher unions which claim supportive measures for education are also the ones being used to be the hands and feet of the reform. You also learned how some UK unions are supposedly joining the effort to hold Pearson Publishing accountable, yet Pearson is just as involved in being the hands and feet of the educational reform! So, are there others involved? Sure there are! Read on….

Enter the Clinton Foundation:

From Michelle E (one of the Warriors who supplied information for yesterday’s article), comes the evidenced link to how the Clinton Foundation is tied to  AFT. Below is a screen shot of the map:

AFTclinton

To access the map for yourselves, http://www.muckety.com/972CE582CC35C6EFED6B0BD380F87C0D.map

When you scroll over the map (on the website) you will see the relationships between AFT and those featured. For example, when you scroll over the dotted line between AFT and the Clinton Foundation, you see ‘funder’ appear. By double clicking on some boxes, you will see the map change to show you more connections. Look for the small plus sign box in the upper right hand corner.For example, when I double clicked on the Clinton Foundation, I found what you see below:

clintonmap

Do you see the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI)? Look at the other groups you see. Why would I mention the CGI? For one we know that the article featured in yesterday’s bombshell said the AFT was joining some UK Unions.

While most of the Unions are education related, it is interesting that a couple are not. Below is an example of one labor union not tied to all this, but is tied to CGI in another way.

Why do I include it? The  CCSS Machine agenda is for a workforce based education. In this excerpt, you can see the relation between labor and education.
“Furthermore, Clinton already has the backing of unions that together represent about two-thirds of American union members (including the two national teachers unions and the largest union of public-sector workers). SEIU (Service Employees International Union)  (might have calculated that Sanders would need the bulk of organized labor behind him to defeat the Clinton juggernaut.”

To learn more about SEIU (headquarters are in Washington, D.C.):
http://www.seiu.org/press (*Note: be sure to scroll down and read some of their Clinton press releases. Also note that globally, 2 million people are members.)

If you want to read the CGI page for their take on CCR (College and Career Readiness), which also ties labor and education together. Note the website address is at the bottom of this screen shot:

clintonccr
When you visit the webpage, notice that the CGI 6th Annual Conference is coming up in June 2016. Note all the CCR supporters/presentations slated, etc. Much evidence is out there tying Hilary Clinton to Common Core/CCR, so I am not including any of that in this article.

Tying the Gates Foundation (featured in yesterday’s article) to the Clinton Foundation (featured in this article) are the over 4 pages of the Gates Foundation grants to the Clinton Family (includes the Health Initiative, the Global Initiative, and more:
http://www.gatesfoundation.org/How-We-Work/Quick-Links/Grants-Database#q/k=Clinton%20Global
)

Enter Tony Blair from the U.K.:

This connection comes from another anti CCSS Warrior, Michele K. She notified me yesterday to see if I (or other anti CCSS Warriors) knew that the former U.K. Prime Minister is not only a big fan of Common Core, but promotes it globally. Below is the website video from the Tony Blair Faith Foundation. The video is 2 years old.

 
Did you hear the lady speak of global citizens? Did you hear her mention the ‘civics mission of schools’? Did you catch how these tie to Common Core competencies? I looked up the Civics Mission of Schools. It is a real organization. Among the members of the organization is the AFT. The CCSSO (Council of Chief State School Officers) is also a member, as are many other CCSS Machine Members. I did not find Tony Blair’s Foundation there or his Face to Faith (mentioned in the video above).

In the Civics Mission is similarly named group called Facing Our History, but that is NOT Blair’s from what I can tell.

To see the Civics Mission of Schools partners/associations:
http://www.civicmissionofschools.org/links (*Note: I have tied many of these to the CCSS Machine, including the Bill of Rights Institute, the American Bar Assoc. and others. If you would like to see how these seemingly patriotic groups are ties, please contact me.)

As far as Tony Blair’s Foundation, you may want to see what his Supporting the Next Generation Project involves. It is targeting 12-17 year old students globally via education.
Access the Project: http://tonyblairfaithfoundation.org/projects/supporting-next-generation

The relationship between Blair and Mrs. Clinton? Apparently, pretty tight. The Washington Examiner (2015) article about their emails and support for each other. (By the way, when Bill Clinton was President, he worked closely with Tony Blair.) http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/hillarys-surprising-ties-to-tony-blair/article/2573416

Another TURN Connection:

In yesterday’s article, we looked quite a bit at the TURN (Teacher Union Reform Network). However, I want us to go back and find out what groups are members of this Network. Will we find any of the organizations from today’s article?

Local groups in TURN: Albuquerque Teachers Federation, Boston Teachers Union, Castaic Teachers Association, Cincinnati Federation of Teachers, Cleveland Teachers Union, Columbus Education Association, Decatur Education Association, Denver Classroom Teachers Association, Douglas County (CO) Federation of Teachers, Elgin (IL) Education Association, Fairfax (VA) Education Association, Hart District Teachers Association, Jefferson County Education Association, Memphis Education Association, Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association, Minneapolis Federation of Teachers, Montgomery County (MD) Education Association, Newhall Teachers Association, Organization of DeKalb (GA) Educators, Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers, Portland (ME) Education Association, Poway (CA) Federation of Teachers, Prince George’s County Educators’ Association, Providence Teachers Union, Rochester Teachers Association, San Diego Education Association, San Juan (CA) Teachers Association, Saugus Teachers Association, Springfield Education Association, Syracuse Teachers Association, Toledo Federation of Teachers, United Educators of San Francisco, United Teachers of Dade, and Westerly Teachers Association

Among the voters and associates of the Network, you won’t find the Clintons, Gates, etc., but you will find many names you may recognize as CCSS Machine members. See:
http://www.turnweb.org/members/

However, it is the influencers of education reform I want to leave you with. TURN relies are these people as the game changers in how American education is taught. Again, bear in mind the CCSS Machine agenda is NOT academic based education OR is it American. It is workforce based for a global citizen.

Closing:

Anti CCSS Warriors, do you know of even more connections? If so, let’s continue to join our information so that ALL may see the foundation already in place and how it is growing daily. Especially as we get closer to the November 2016 elections. Candidates in ALL levels of government need to be examined closely. I thank all the Warriors who have shared their knowledge so that we, too, can be just as prepared as possible to continue our War Against the Core.

Tech Thursday: “Career Passports”, Seriously?!

Would you believe the movement to support the Common Core’s “Career Pathways” has come up with a ‘skills passport’?! Yes, indeed. I’ve got all the information you need to help fight this in your school…no matter if it’s somewhere in preK-12th OR in post-secondary education (which includes community colleges, public/private universities and colleges, for profit trade school, and, online career courses).

The Sales Pitched by Viridis Learning:

Normally, I provide video evidence further into each article, but today, I’m starting out with it so you can see the similarities between the “Skills Passport” and the “National Certificates/Credentials” I’ve shared with you in earlier articles.

Did you catch all that? “Stackable Credentials”, “personalized career pathway”? I sure did!

From the Viridis Learning’s website (https://viridislearning.com/), the way in which your passport becomes filled begins with DATA MINING! Followed by an assessment that allows your path to be aligned for your ‘dream job’. If this isn’t enough, you are continued to be tracked/monitored throughout your path to the ‘dream’ career. Then, much like a dating service, your information and someone’s job are ‘perfectly matched’. The difference in this type of hiring and ‘old school’ hiring is the data trail doesn’t END when you become employed..it follows your for LIFE! Look below to see the Virdis Learning’s model for job seekers.
skillpass

Viridis Learning relies not only on all kinds of student data, but COMPETENCY BASED education as well. Founded in 2009 by a U.S. Veteran who, like others exiting the military, had issues transitioning from serving their country to civilian life. From then until now, here’s the Mission Statement: “Viridis Learning seeks to develop a global qualified and sustainable middle-skill workforce, and ultimately thriving middle class, through the adoption of its highly customizable, data-driven technology platform.”

Among the partners of Viridis Learning, is Pearson Publishing’s  Workforce Education arm. There are many other partners as well. See them all:
https://viridislearning.com/#about-us


Send in the Venture Capitalists!

From the website above, I was able to find the press releases. Now, like you, I don’t have tons of time to read the many that are there, but you can learn a tremendous amount about the company’s allegiance to Workforce aligned education. You’ll also see the push for “STEM” careers. If you’ve followed my blog/research for long, you how connected “STEM” is to “Common Core” and “Career Technical Education/Career Pathways”.

However, it was this particular article that caught my eye immediately.
“Human Capital Growth Company Viridis Backed by Comcast Ventures”
This article was featured on “PR Newswire” back in 2013. In this article, not only do you get the exact companies invested in VL, but you can learn the data companies or other workforce/education companies THEY own. (See: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/human-capital-growth-company-viridis-backed-by-comcast-ventures-228155241.html)

You really should see some of the other news about VL on their media page. Not only will you find “STEM”, you’ll find the “Clinton Global Initiative”, and many other obvious connections to the CCSS Machine. See: https://viridislearning.com/#news

Other venture capitalist groups in on all kinds of educational overreach:
Blue Ridge Foundation, I shared with you their CCSS data mining ties:
 https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/05/04/monday-musings-learning-for-whom/


CNF Investments
, holds “American Honors College”. The CCSS/CTE ties? This virtual learning company combines community colleges (I’ve shown you how nation wide, they’ve gone over to teaching CCSS/CTE), data mining, nation-wide teachers, and use Quad Learning. Both AHC and QL are basing all their efforts on outcome based education for lifetime pathways..oh, I almost forgot..while saving you money. See both:
 https://americanhonors.org/about-us AND http://quadlearninginc.com/about/index.html


Dauk Wagner Investments
, LLC, while their website won’t reveal much, you can see that one of the founders had ties to Citibank (a well known CCSS Machine member). There are other clues as well. See if you can identify them: http://www.daukwagnerinvestments.com/
(*Note: Mrs. Dauk is a sitting Board Member of Student Agencies, Inc. Student Agencies, Inc. is tied to Student Agencies Foundation which is tied to Cornell University. Cornell University has been granted millions in all kinds of research, global policy, and more. See the 4 pages of grant descriptions: http://www.gatesfoundation.org/How-We-Work/Quick-Links/Grants-Database#q/k=cornell%20university)
You might also find that Cornell is big on student start up businesses. Businesses mean jobs. Jobs mean the economy is growing. Can you see the pattern which most of the Viridis Learning and others involved are promoting?


Expansion Venture Capital
, gives you “Careerosity” (find them on Twitter or Facebook). Founded by Waine Tam (former point person for Gates Foundation’s  iMentor, which was a non profit program geared for ‘college readiness’. See the Gates grant: http://www.gatesfoundation.org/How-We-Work/Quick-Links/Grants-Database/Grants/2011/11/OPP1049005
The “Careerosity” is so social media and flash mob-like in their get-togethers, finding a dedicated website was tough. However, I’m including a link to an event “Careerosity” hosted in NY where attendees were given all kinds of career advice. Among the panelists: College Board! We know how sold out to the CCSS/CTE/CCR they are! See: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/transitioning-to-a-career-in-social-impact-tickets-6431788653
ULU Ventures, holds “LearnZillion”, a cloud based curriculum operation. See their website: https://learnzillion.com/
While that may not seem harmful, consider what ‘clouds’ like this thrive on: DATA MINING! This totally open curriculum is also GLOBAL. Here’s an excerpt from their ‘About Us’ page:LearnZillion.com offers a free and growing set of Math and English Language resources for grades 2-12 that have been developed by expert teachers directly from the Common Core State StandardsLearnZillion’s premium participatory curriculum platform enables schools and districts to accelerate the successful implementation of the Common Core, augment the efficacy of their coaches, create classtime capacity to address differentiation needs, and build teacher leaders.”
The concept for “LearnZillion” came from a public charter school. See: https://learnzillion.com/about
Promote a Conference!

Viridis Learning is helping promote career pathways via a first-of-its-kind conference in about 1 week. ETurboNews announced the conference recently. Here’s an excerpt:
” First Annual Employment Pathway Innovation Conference 2015 that will take place in New York City from September 21-22….This important event is being promoted by Viridis Learning, an organization founded by Felix W. Ortiz III, dedicated to helping students identify and pursue specific, lifelong career pathways and provide them with the educational and certification resources to follow them.” (the entire article:
http://www.eturbonews.com/63445/education-crucial-determination-future)

Among the panelists are: Sir James Mancham, NC Governor Pat McCrory, lots of former presidents from other countries, retired US Army staff, and, private corporations devoted to the CCSS Machine. If you aren’t familiar with the ties to CCSS/CTE/CCR that Sir James or Gov. McCrory has, please look them up. You’ll learn quite a bit. As a resident of NC, I can tell you the Governor’s devotion to Common Core is well publicized. What also very big on his agenda is Career Tech Education, Career Pathways. Sir James is president of the Global Peace Council. HIs autobiography’s title includes “Global Citizen”…hmm, still wondering about the CCSS’s global citizen aspect? See a pro CCSS sided article: http://blogs.edweek.org/edweek/global_learning/2012/01/the_common_core_state_standards.html
For anti CCSS global citizenship articles, google “CCSS global citizen”.

Closing:
What do all these companies have in common? Besides helping the CCSS/CTE/CCR efforts out, each holds other companies besides the ones I’ve highlighted here. It’s no secret that venture capitalists look to education as a profit maker, NOT as academic learning! See my article about the SBA (Small Business Administration‘s CCSS/CTE/CCR funding for venture capitalists: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/02/10/ftf-the-sba-and-common-core/  THEN, this one about the diabolical education plans some venture capitalists have for our country: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2014/09/16/from-the-files-tuesday-down-in-the-valley/ (Note: one of the main goals by this type of group is abolishing all local school boards)

WYBI: More Recap for Anti CC Warriors

Imagine, those who make the assessments, That the child you see is YOURS.
Imagine, those who make the assessments, That the child you see is YOURS.

It’s a “Would You Believe It” Wednesday for those of us fighting Common Core and the CCSS Machine (meaning all those groups/programs/resources, etc. which are also Common Core regardless of the name). I do hope all this week, you’ve been finding the recap theme to be helpful. Today’s is going to be devoted to 3 of the most visited 2015 articles which have really surprised folks.
Note: the jpeg picture you see above is one a fellow anti CCSS warrior created that I’ve shared before. It captures the essence of what many of us feel about CCSS. It’s been one of the top commented on pictures I’ve featured.

January 2015 started you off with this top viewed article:

https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/01/07/wybi-wednesday-icaps-common-core-and-more/
Showing you, the ICAP (Individual Career and Academic Plan), how its’s connected to IEP (Individual Educational Plan), the Council of Chief State School Officers and so many other parts of the Core. Be sure to read not only the article, but the comments that were posted following the article.
In February of this year:

https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/02/11/wybi-jhuy/
I shared the research, links, and related information with you about ‘career readiness’ in other countries and how it is being used in America. If you aren’t familiar with CCR (college and career readiness), it’s another part of Common Core that’s been given a new name so it appears to be un-related to CCSS. However, when you look beneath the surface, you quickly find AIR (American Institute of Research), The Clinton Global Initiative, and many others.

Just a couple of weeks ago, I shared with you:

https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/05/20/wybi-global-ed-for-all-through-2030/
This article details the plan for global Common Core (or Common Core-like) education through the year 2030.
It ties the UN, UNESCO, the Gates Foundation, and others together. Not too surprising if you’ve fought the CCSS Machine for awhile, but if you’re new to the battle, this is a vital piece.

CLOSING:

Yes, there are many other Would You Believe It ‘posts, however, I’m keeping this brief for you today. Why? I’m inviting you to listen in to my guest appearance on the Women on the Wall national conference call. The WYBI-worthy topic is the Higher Education Act and how the upcoming re-authorization plays directly into the plans of the CCSS Machine. I’ve been able to comb through 3 related documents, as well as the actual legislation to find the connecting dots. To access the call (which will be archived), call 302-202-1110. Use the access code: 702165. The call is free. It begins at 9:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time (that’s 8:3o PM for Central Daylight Time; 7:30 PM for Mountain Daylight Time, and 6:30 PM for Pacific Daylight Time). I truly hope you’ll be listening in,as what I have to share is vital to our students, our citizens, and our country’s freedoms. When you listen, you’ll see how these Top WYBI articles relate to what’s in store for our nation.
