Under Our Noses

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

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

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

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

pressurecooker

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

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

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

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

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

STEM In Legislation for 2018 And Beyond:

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

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

STEM’s P3 Legislation:

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

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

hr5119

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

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

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

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

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

workforcenochoice

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

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

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

Human capital concept in tag cloud
How the Initiative behind all that Common Core encompasses SEES us.

ICYMI: How the State Dept. has become a STEM disciple for targeting women. You’ll see UNESCO involved as well.  Included will be both NASA and NSF, too.

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

Closing:

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

Brace For Impact

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we know that the CCSS Machine isn’t simply American made..it’s global. It’s roots are in the United Nations and a host of other international organizations.

Many of us have been tracking this for years and exposing the goals are as ‘lily white and pure’ as they are passed off to be. 

So, finding out the U.S. Secretary of Education made her way to the recent G20 Education Ministers Meetings in Argentina, was not really a surprise. DeVos’s global roots are showing, as they have been since she was sworn into office.
agreed

The question is exactly what will she do with all the ideas, policies, and, the damning Declaration for not only education, but our very freedoms. Join me tonight on the Patriot Nation Network as I discuss this with the host. Interview begins at 8 pm, EDT.

I can tell you we all need to brace for impact, however. Impacts like ‘that tree’s about to fall’ or ‘the plane’s about to crash’. (*Note: this is my 30 minute video revealing the Declaration and its agenda.)
******************************************
Why? Well, look at the picture above. DeVos agreed to EVERYTHING in the Declaration for US, as a nation, without our CONSENT.
*****************************************************
So, what DID she agree to bring back to the United States?

1) More assessments for mastery based competency skills

2) More data tracking from birth to death

3) More ‘lifelong learning’ (aka: a hamster wheel effect for us all)

4) More ‘personalized learning’ to close digital gender gaps (aka: more physical and mental damage by being on computers too long)

5) More proof that the ‘one-way-to-learn-so-you-can-earn’ will be the ONLY way for ALL Americans (regardless of public, private, faith based, or homeschooling)

6) More evidence that our lives will not be our own to live; our choices will not be our own

7) ‘Smoking guns’ for more private corporations, national, and international financing of not only education but labor (aka: jobs)

8) Educratic buzzwords and phrases which will be used against us (for example, the Declaration does use ‘vocational training’; however, it’s been proven that here in America, ‘vocational training’, like ‘vocational education’ was re-branded to Career Tech Education (CTE) ). Warriors, we KNOW CTE IS Common Core and STEM combined!

9) More STEM, especially for girls

10) More family micromanaging

11) Combining education and labor into one category (Warriors, remember, there’s a proposed legislative bill out there to merge U.S. Education and U.S. Labor already. This Declaration will more than likely be the last nail in the coffin in allowing the merger!)

12) More mind-bending indoctrination toward our attitudes, values, and beliefs to conform to global sustainability, peace, and tolerance for anyone and whatever they do, believe, or support

13) More AI, infrastructure changes, and technology to track us, teach us, and control us
(*Note: the highlighted phrase will show you Alison McDowell’s video on Blockchain. It will definitely tie into not only the G20 Declaration, but education.)


In other words, Warriors, not only will we see education be turned into workforce prep, as we have been, but we’ll see it INCREASED to match the UN backed, G20 Declaration.
If you want to see how the L20 (Labor 20) Group fits into the E20 (Education 20), go here. You’ll also need to read this.

Back in July of this year, I shared with you how our American Declaration of Independence was being threatened by the overreaches at the hands of not only the CCSS Machine, but the U.S. Government, AND, the United Nations.

DeVos’s agreement to honor a global declaration is a spear through every one of our student’s hearts and should be criminal.

The very fact that BOTH the U.S. Dept. of Education and U.S. Department of Labor are unconstitutional has been overlooked and ignored for too long. Back in late 2017, I showed you how the decrease in UN funds from America weren’t enough to STOP the impacts about to hit us! The article showed not only Ed/Labor, but the State Dept. and a host of other federal agencies participating in supporting the UN rather than the US! (You’ll want to see how the World’s Largest Lesson is connected to all this; then look below at the colorful picture.)

Closing:

We MUST respond to what is happening before us NOW. The impacts are about to slap us all in the face. Remember, the Declaration impacts not only public schools, but ANY kind of schooling; young or old. By using language like ‘formal learning, informal learning, or learning anywhere’ that ensnares ALL choices! Warriors, think about it, ESSA (wiped out true school choice) and NOW the Declaration does, too.

Some of the very impacts you’ve been warned about since ESSA became law are also in the G20 Declaration! Was it by chance?! No!!!

We CANNOT allow ourselves or our children to be a puppet to the system!

Beware, The “Change”

Anti  Fed Ed Warriors, have many times have we heard that  ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) will REDUCE testing?! How many times will it take (via research) to prove this is a LIE?! Recently, the State of Utah was awoken to the fact that ‘opting out of the high stakes’ testing cannot happen. Fellow anti Fed Ed Warrior, Autumn Cook gives you the full blow-by-blow account.

I truly hope Utah will step up and sue the U.S. Dept. of Education, as well as all the involved in violating our student’s privacy rights.

11133843_359800820885744_6312095087624607421_n

Surprised? We shouldn’t be. When ESSA was first being combed over (before it became law), the mandate for a strict 95% testing rate, was largely scoffed at and dismissed. Despite warnings and proof of this, millions have been banking on the lies about ESSA. Even in 2018, we are seeing ‘opt-out guides’.

Presto, Chango?!:

Warriors
, ESSA is clear: opting out will not be possible. Testing, not only will remain, BUT must INCREASE! How? Those daily assessments via computer based learning!

The ties to the student/teacher data rape will INCREASE (did you know ESSA’s mandates include that ALL current assessments/tests not only must communicate well with the past 3 years of data, BUT, they also must either match OR be similar to what assessments/tests your neighboring States use!

(Below, is a screen shot from 2015 about the massive amounts of teacher data rape. ESSA will ‘harvest’ even more and hold schools ‘hostage’!)
AK assess

I’ve been contacted by a few parents who are discovering that because of ESSA’s language and the mandates, those tests their children WERE able to opt-out of, are now being held against them. How? By not taking ‘x’ number of tests, the holes in the SLDS (Student Longitudinal Data System) cannot be filled with anything else. Too many holes in the data means no graduation!

We have to STOP believing the CCSS Machine, Warriors! Take the time to access my entire set of ESSA/assessment articles. In these you’ll see just how heavy handed the federal government will be when it comes to ALL school choices (even homeschooling) and their testing. (*Note: this plays right into the Gates plan that all ‘assessments will drive the curriculum’.)

studentdash
I do not support the over assessing of students and their teachers via the Common Core/College and Career Readiness aligned tests; the Career Path assessments; or the data mining included. 

Back in 2016, I showed you the ways in which ‘education technology’ was ramping up for students, teachers, and entire communities. Digital Promise is another way, too.

Not Just Utah:

While the article from Utah which Autumn wrote exposes quite a bit, NC’s State Superintendent of Education, Mark Johnson has been ‘busy’ producing testing ‘changes’ for students. (Here’s the link, but be sure to read the line where it states the laptops can do more than monitor kids.)

smokemirror

While this sounds great and appears to back up the NC Teacher Survey (where teachers do express they know the students are tested too much), we need to look VERY  CLOSELY at the ‘changes’. Why? They are smoke and mirror changes! To learn more about the MClass/Amplify activities in NC (and where to look in your State), go here.

“Innovation” Is A CCSS Machine Buzzword:

Warriors, we’ve seen ESSA embed ‘innovation’ in its mandates. Research has proven ‘innovation’ in education is not all sunshine and roses.

“Innovation” means technology increases. The increases mean infrastructure changes to beef up internet access. Innovation means textbooks disappear and constant data tracking happens. Innovation has to be in place for the data to be collected and sold.

“Innovation” also uses another CCSS Machine fallacy filled phrase: “personalized learning” or PL. PL is a huge data raper.

Look what student/teacher student group Johnson’s ‘reduction’ targets: the littlest learners! Warriors, NC is NOT alone in this alignment/assault of our children!! Look back at Utah’s case, the student data rape will continue via the not being able to opt out.

Remember, Warriors, the biggest smoke and mirror move across America, thanks to ESSA is the amount of end of grade or course testing MAY decrease, BUT the daily ASSESSMENTS and TRACKING increase!

devosled

Innovation forces a managed system for economics. Sure, one of the by-products of innovation CAN be ‘learning’, but education is NOT the reason ‘innovation’ is happening in our school districts. It IS what is being shoved on us. It’s also being sold to us as the only way to prepare students for the 21st Century.

Data not only means economic gain, it means control. Think about it, control the education, you control the schools.

Below, I’ve created a chart to illustrate the distinct likenesses of data rape and its physical equal. It isn’t pretty, but we MUST face the stark truth. (Read more about the federal government’s data rape plans, here.)

physicalvsdata

Closing:

Warriors, the bottom line is this: innovation will not be our education’s true friend. It’s a change, alright, but it’s setting up changes we really MUST beware.

Innovation via technology which data rapes us ALL is popping up everywhere across America. My fellow researcher and whistle-blower, Patrick Wood has shown us how our privacy is assaulted via the Smart Meters. Think how this connects to your school issued technology device used at home. Not only are Johnny and Suzy tracked, but the entire family is. ESSA included THAT, too in its mandates.

FY 2019 will have scads of data raping programs.

Remember, data isn’t simply a way to make big bucks off our private information, it’s control. It’s manipulation and it’s criminal.

The Set-up: An In-Depth Report

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

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

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

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

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

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

essagoal

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

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

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

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

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

supportworkopposecore
Legislative sessions across America are embracing Workforce.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How The Past Has Met The Present:

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

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

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

trumpplan

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

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

iceburg

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

Coming To Fruition?!

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

An Older Trump EO Meets A New One:

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

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

13801

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

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

Closing:

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

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

By Degrees

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, Anti Global Ed Warriors, and concerned Americans everywhere:

You’ve seen massive amounts of research exposing the continued push to have American education become the United Nations’ (UN) education. The main way this has been accomplished so far (and will increase in use) is STEM/STEAM/STREAM.

bones-say-it
STEM, by way of Common Core..and not in a distant galaxy.

No matter how many letters are added to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), it is ALL directly from the United Nations and their SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). If you have a family member, friend, associate, or neighbor who needs to see the many connections proving this, I’m embedding a general link to all my articles on STEM/STEAM/STREAM. (*Note: there are several pages of articles, so take some time to scroll through them to find exactly what may be needed.)


Some “New” STEM Evidence:

Warriors, in doing some research, I found a Fall 2015 article we need to know about.  It’s called  The Emerging 360 Degree Model for Global Citizenship Education”.

Before we look at the ups and downs of this research, take a look at how you and I should ‘stack up’ as global  citizens:

globalcitizenchart
(You can open the image in a new tab to see it bigger if needed. You may also use the zoom feature on your computer’s tool bar.)

Warriors, to have an image like this, we need to understand experiments were conducted with students to gather the data to create a visual result!

Where were the experiments based out of? Boise State University in Boise, Idaho.
How connected to the UN is Boise State University? Very!
Model UN Assemblies are the tip of the global iceberg.
BSU is also a member of the AASCU (American Association of State Colleges and Universities) which is a UN Partner in Education.
If you’d like to see other BSU STEM related research, go here.

BSU, like many universities and colleges, has international partners for exchange programs/students.
(*Note: when you access the embedded link ‘member’ look on Page 7 for the mention of KY’s “Core” Standards for PreK to 12th data mining.)

Below, is a screen shot from BSU’s Institute for STEM.

BSUstem

The 2015 Report’s Language:

Page 1: STEM will ‘offer tremendous opportunities’ for solving global poverty and improving health care. Warriors, STEM certainly will because STEM is the way the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) are carried out in education!
SDG #1 is “No Poverty”, SDG# 3 is “Good Health and Well Being”. Look below to see what else Page 1 stated:

emerging360
You’ll also see (on Page 1)  P3s (public private partnerships) are stressing we need to become global. Especially the P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills), which is most definitely a CCSS Machine member group.

Page 2: Reveals it’s imperative we educate students for globalization. Why? They can better understand the world. If they understand the world, they can fix the world’s problems. From Page 2 into Page 3, why health care needs to become STEM oriented. (It already is via the Career Clusters from Common Core.) (*Note” the embedded short video you’ll find when you click on “Career Clusters” is from TX, where the State supposedly didn’t have Common Core. However, TX had Common Core in the form of CTE, Career Tech Education and STEM.)

stempbl1
Make NO mistake: it has been a calculated plan for STEM and Common Core to be directly related.

Page 3: Global citizens can better economics for everyone, especially when they can ‘leverage collective assets’. You’ll find IPSL (International Partnership for Service Learning) also on Page 3. IPSL is a B Corporation (social benefit). B Corporations are usually big on social justice. Social justice is a huge component of the UN’s SDGs.
Many B Corporations are CCSS Machine members, too. (*Note: as an example, look at EFP (Education Funding Partners) ) Back in 2016, I exposed the AltSchool’s B Corporation status. Part of AltSchool’s classroom ‘setup’? Willy nilly style.

Page 4: the Global 360 Education Model is rigorous, progressive for real world problem solving. (Doesn’t this just sound like recycled pitches for Common Core?!)
Oh, also let’s not forget to overlook the ‘competency’ involved. You’ll see that on Page 4 as well.

Page 5: Global citizens should have ‘open minds’ especially while ‘actively seeking’. I guess the truth about having such an open mind leading to danger is lost in the CCSS Machine’s translation. “Preparing NextGen Leaders” also needs open minds full of STEM skills.

Included on Page 5 of BSU’s research is the fact that in 2012, they partnered with Peacework. Peacework is a non profit global organization in full support of innovation (aka technology) and the SDGs. This non profit is based in VA and is 25 years old. (Be sure to see which educational and corporate groups are helping align Peacework to the CCSS Machine.

You will also see the Global Competency Aptitude Assessment is on Page 5 as well.
(*Note: the Global Competency Aptitude Assessment has a sister site for Global Competency Consulting. GCAA will be happy to help you can become a certified Globally Competent Practitioner.) The Consulting group’s goal is to prepare the global workforce.

Warriors, here’s an excerpt from Page 5 about STEM and health-care,
” Within the context of STEM and health-science education, global competencies must include sensitivities to the social, cultural, political, ethical, and moral impacts of science, technology, and health-science and/or engineering-based global solutions (Conway, 2000; Currier, 2009; MBugua, 2010).”

Let that sink in for a moment. Who gets to decide which ‘sensitivities’ to include? Who gets to decide if these ‘sensitivities’ are in agreement with those being taught. As our government gets more and more STEM in our lives, we’ll see more legislation (like some I’ve recently shown you) where the families will have to kowtow to the government assigned health imperatives. (*Note: when you click on ‘you’, scroll down to the Mental Health in Schools Act section.)

Pages 6-7 will detail how the learning process will shift to create global citizens. Four tools are used. Constructivism (where ‘critical thinking’ is inserted); interdisciplinary learning (where group projects are inserted); transformational leaders (where facilitating is used in place of teaching); and, international service-learning (think glorified indentured servitude). Helping put all this into action? International partnerships.

Pages 8 through 11 lay out the methods, findings, discussion, and conclusion of the Boise State University study. Be sure to read the comments made by the students.

Since the BSU Study:

Warriors, as far as BSU itself, the global citizen march lives on. Just like it is ramping up in every grade level, college or not. You’ll find global citizen courses for business, too.
Below is just a small sample of what’s out there.

To access the Council for Foreign Relations Report, visit here.
To access the Global Citizen Initiative’s Global Citizen Rights and Responsibilities page, that’s here. Also, here is an archived article I wrote featuring the Initiative’s scorecard on America’s push for global citizenry.
To see the course from Hong Kong, find that here. You’ll also want to click on ‘home’, where you’ll see Common Core in the upper right hand corner.
To see the Global Sourcing Council’s article on adhering to the World Economic Forum’s global citizen definition, that is here.

If you’d like to see the other World Economic Forum resources for defining global citizens, this one is from 2014 and appears to uphold the need to be global to help cut down on the cost of communications. In 2015, the conversation shifted to international ID cards and data tracking needed to ‘help’ global citizens. From March 2018, being global citizens means our ‘trust’ factor will be restored.

Warriors, according to this article ‘trust’ is the most important ‘pro-social’ attitude we can have. Since when did ‘trust’ become an attitude?! Trust, by classical definition is part of your moral character. I guess we can thank the CCSS Machine’s English Language Arts for destroying definitions.

The Shift To Global Ed In America Is Older Than You Realize:

Warriors, from 2016, my in-depth look at “My State in the World” where you’ll see MN, NC, MI, and, other States (as well as their schools) were compromised. This article features many resources from trusted Anti Fed Ed/Global Ed Warriors.

Closing:

Warriors, while we know this systematic take over of our education and lives continues, we also DO have a choice. Use the information to help others ‘wake up’. Since STEM has even infiltrated EVERY school choice, including home education, we must eliminate it from ALL curriculum, ALL community wide events celebrating it. We CAN teach each of these subjects without the UN’s influence!
STEM is NOT your friend, it is NOT America’s savior; STEM is a tool from enemies who do not love freedom.
