Educratic Stalks?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, here we are for article #5 in my September 2019 Workforce Development (aka Workforce Education) series.

So far, in the first installment, we covered the Senatorial Resolution (which the ENTIRE Senate agreed to support) declaring Sept. 2019 as “workforce development month”.
In Part 2, we covered how skill based education is killing academic based education.
Part 3 uncovered this workforce education shift is more about economics than personal freedom.
Part 4 showed you the global-to-federal-to-state-to-local chain of educratic BS supporting workforce aligned education.

So, what can I show you in Part 5? How the STEM/STEAM hype is 100% workforce education disguised as quality learning.

First, Some Background:

Warriors, if you’ve followed my blog long you know I’ve repeatedly shown you the proof that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) is not American created (it’s from the UN, United Nations), nor is it intended for American education.
If you’ve not followed my blog very long, you’ll probable object to that last statement.


Believe me, I’ve heard from several anti CCSS Warriors, who will not accept that STEM is a tool for workforce prepped citizens carrying out every one of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). STEM is in the SDG Toolkit as the #1 change agent for our communities to align themselves to the ‘greater global good’.

So, since STEM isn’t American, how did it get inserted into education here? The term “STEM” is an acronym the NSF (National Science Foundation) coined at the UN’s encouraging, to market the agenda in a way that sounded like good education, but isn’t one bit. If you didn’t know this the NSF is a United States federally funded non-government agency. However, the federal power it carries out is tremendous. STEM was ‘rolled out’ about the time Common Core State Standards were. The ploy was to quietly insert them, so folks wouldn’t notice while all the attention was on CCSS.

sdgstem

So, where did STEAM come from? STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and, Math) Standards were created in S. Korea, but, have been passed off as American created educational standards.

Again, just another way to have government control of education. As far as workforce development in STEAM, it’s just as menacing as all the other overreaches. Howso? STEAM’s agenda is to have a ‘preK to gray’ workforce.

steampyramid
Many websites claim STEAM picked up speed recently, however, as with anything connected to CCSS, there’s more to the story.

Back in 2015, I gave you a 2 part article set on how the STEM agenda was embedded in WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), HEA (Higher Education Act), what would become ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act)  legislation, and, was all about workforce development.

StateSTEM


So, Why Is “Stalking” In The Title?

Warriors, I chose ‘stalking’ for a couple of reasons. First, to get attention for the article. Secondly, to illustrate that the dictionary defines a stem as a ‘main part’ or a ‘stalk’ (as in a plant’s formation). Think about it, STEM was forced upon us as ‘education’ but the main part isn’t education, it’s workforce! It’s a workforce for a STEM nation and a STEM economy, too!

flowerstem

If you’re curious how Wall Street feels about STEM/STEAM, look at the hype Dun and Bradstreet’s MDR division is putting out there:

(Source, added emphasis is mine)

If you’re curious as to how DC feels about STEM/STEAM, I’ve got plenty of evidence to show you how our previous and current Administrations fully support STEM/STEAM.
(*Note: that last highlighted link takes you to the U.S. Dept. of Education where you’ll see 7 federal education arms fully support STEM.)

Recently, Forbes published an article about the vital importance STEM education for a workforce is needed in America. When you read it, be sure to note the NFL cleats and that STEM is a part of the economic and social justice.  That ‘economic justice’? That’s SDG #1 (end poverty). As we know, SDG#4 is quality education and SDG#8 is decent work for all. “Social justice” is woven into SDG#5 gender equality, as well as several others.

Warriors, can you see the ‘writing on the wall’? STEM is the change agent to have us conform, not remain free thinkers!

Closing:

Warriors, how is a barely educated citizen supposed to survive in a conformed system?
Total dependence on the government, if the CCSS Machine gets its way.

“Educratic takeover of our nation is about 98% complete. Will others join us to save the remaining 2%? It only take a small number of emboldened citizens to fight back.”

Educratic Dollars

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my previous article, I laid out for you the importance of just how much we are losing by allowing repugnant and unconstitutional (therefore, illegal) laws to govern us, especially in education.

In that article, you also were brought up to speed on some educratic bills which are being fast-tracked so they can become laws. That’s right, MORE laws to add to the thousands we are charged to not follow or, even honor.

usefulidiot

Why? Three realities we are NOT living by:
Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution clearly points that the Constitution is the SUPREME law of the land.
Marbury vs Madison’s further clarification that even the Supreme Court cannot ‘best’ the Constitution.
US Code 1232a’s prohibition of ANY type of federal overreach into education.

“ANY” includes presidential executive orders, federal funds, federal ‘laws’, policies, initiatives, programs, Congressional legislation, insertion of education into ANY other unconstitutional law, and using our taxpayer dollars against our freedoms and liberties.
“Education” means all teaching, learning, curriculum, testing, and, all connecting resources.

mvm

Warriors, at the close of the previous article, I told you there were other repugnant and illegal legislation the 116th Congress is churning out. There’s also one note to add.

Since that publication, I’ve been asked by a Warrior in Rhode Island if any type of lawsuit has been created to wipe out these repugnant and unconstitutional ‘laws’. To date, I do not know of any. If you have knowledge of one (or, hopefully, many), please let me know.

**For the remainder of this article, we’ll look at 3 Congressional bills and President Trump’s latest EO (Executive Order).

Meet S 1558:

Warriors, this Senate bill (AI-IA, short for Artificial Intelligence Initiative Act) is one I’ve shared with two great Anti Fed Ed Warriors who happened to be experts on the UN (United Nations) and the global push for AI and 5G in America. I hope you will look for more on S 1558’s overreaches into your communities. S 1558 was introduced in May 2019.

However, I’m covering the education portions of S 1558 for you. You can access the entire bill in the highlighted phrase above.

What does S 1558 do? It establishes a federally led initiative (program complete with policies and funds) to embed AI in our national economy. It will also attach AI (includes 5G) in our national security plan. In a nutshell, S 1558 will have us more data tracked than ever. It’s also going to attach badges and digital markers on each of us. By the way, our current US national security strategy is laced with UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agenda points. 

18strategy


Also, S 1558 has ‘other purposes’. Such as, education being mentioned 49 times. S 1558 puts the NSF (National Science Foundation) in charge of much of the AI-IA implementation.

NSF is also a partner to the UN and ‘adores’ the SDGs. Since NSF coined the marketing term “STEM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) to hoodwink Americans, it makes sense that this same NGO (Non governmental organization) would be used in S 1558.

Since STEM is involved, that means the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), the HEA (Higher Education Act), and, WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) are also embedded.

Page numbers concerning education which are the most troublesome:
Page 22, algorithms; Page 26, P3s (Public Private Partnerships); and Page 28, AI hubs in schools from PreK to workforce.

S 1855, The ASPIRE Act:

Warriors, ASPIRE is short for Access, Success and Persistence in Reshaping Education Act of  2019. This is NOT the first time ASPIRE’s been in Congress, back in the 114th Congressional session, ASPIRE was trotted out. I went into detail about S 3368, then. Much of the same repugnant garbage is in the newer version, S 1855(*Note: during the 115th Congressional session, there were 2 ASPIRE Acts, one the almost carbon copy of S 3368 and HR 926, an amendment to the HEA for STEM.)

The same Senate Official (Coons) introduced ASPIRE in the S 3368 version AND the current S 1855 version.

So, what will S 1855 do for education’s reshaping? First, it is to amend the HEA, Higher Education Act. Supposedly by reshaping higher education more people can become students and go on to complete their higher education. You’ll find 65 references to education is S 1855. This bill introduced in June 2019.

Page 3, all the types of higher education are laid out.

However, Warriors, it’s the amount of power the Sec. of Education (DeVos) will have in this bill which is the biggest concern. She’ll be given the power to determine who gets financial aid, which schools are performing well and which ones are in the bottom 5%, she’ll determine what punishment to give the bottom 5%, she’ll have the data mining trails to track how students and teachers are applying ‘best practices’, she’ll be in charge of ‘accelerated learning’ and work-study programs, and hand out $2 million (a piece) grants on a competitive basis to qualifying higher education institutions. If your school doesn’t measure up to DeVos’s design? Penalty fees begin at $1 million. Those penalty fees from the schools cannot come from fewer scholarships awarded or raising tuition prices. So, where will the money come from? More than likely our taxes.

devosledHR 3102, HIGHER ED Act:

This June 2019 bill has a much longer name. ‘HIGHER ED’ is short for Helping Individuals Get a Higher Education while Reducing Education Debt Act. You’ll find ‘education’ is embedded 85 different times in HR 3102.

Warriors, somehow this ONE bill will improve higher education loans. How? Reauthorizing Stafford (subsidized and un-subsidized) loans, offering student loan bankruptcy, giving re-financing opportunities, loan forgiveness, and, loan repayments based on income. Sounds great, right? Well, let’s remember a few key facts:
1) student debt is at its highest due TO the government’s involvement
2) student repayment programs have been offered in the past and contained massive amounts of federal controlling strings
3) student debt forgiveness will also transfer the repayment of that debt to other taxpayers
4) with government involvement, there are also P3s, public private partnerships..messing with money AND data concerning our students and their families
5) the involvement of the Treasury Dept and other US federal agencies is a certainty (which means more data collection and sharing)
6) HR 3102 puts the Sec. of Education in charge of designed and developing (thus approving) the entire process (Does the wolf minding the hen house come to mind?)

This set up scheme is almost like the government’s try at lowering the bar in the housing market, so that folks who’d never been able to buy a house, could. Trouble is, so many folks who couldn’t pay for their homes threw the economy into a tail spin.

This happens every single time the US government gets into economic controlling areas it has NO constitutionally to do so!

HR 3102 also will use PLUS loans and federal direct consolidation loans. HELLO?! Doesn’t Congress remember education funding is a part of federal control and by the US federal law, below, prohibited!!

US fed statute

Warriors, a reoccurring theme was present in HR 3102. Options to switch up repayment programs and/or to completely opt-out. Who, my fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors, will pick up the slack? According to other parts of the language, if you have defaulted on student loans, while you can may be pay it back or not (per the language), any collection agency fees, would be on your shoulders. Again, nothing in clear print about the balance of the loan.

Warriors, we really need to watch out for this bill’s passage. It is still very possible to totally block it. We must contact our DC officials.

President Trump’s Newest EO:

Warriors, the most recent EO (Executive Order) made by President Trump also concerns student loan. This one, however is for our disabled veterans. Now, let me stop right here and state for the record that I am NOT anti-veteran. I support our veterans. I have US veterans in my family. I honor and respect US service men and women. However, as in other articles where our veterans are concerned, I have raised the point about what a disservice our US government is to them.

Especially in education! In the past, I’ve shown you bills where the US Congress is using STEM to retrain veterans. So, in essence, the very globalism and tyranny our US military is fighting, they come home, only to have it thrust upon them in order to get a job!

Does this sound very constitutional? Does this truly honor their fight to keep us free? No, it globalizes our nation just a bit more each time a bill like this is created or passed.

stempipe
Is honoring our Vets by lumping them in with STEM patriotic? NO! It churns them through another pipeline, just like our PreK to adult students!

HOWEVER, there’s a BIG difference between a Congressional bill and an Executive Order. The Congressional bill at least goes through channels with opportunities for We the People to weigh in. EOs, totally bypass the will of the citizens and promotes the President’s agenda (regardless of issue). There’s been much debate about the constitutionality of EOs, not only under Trump, but in previous administrations.

What does Pres. Trump’s vet debt forgiveness EO  say? Look below:

vetdebt

Warriors, what current legal vet debt loan forgiveness is available? Stateside Legal (for the US Military members) states that a) you must be the one to request debt forgiveness not only in certain situations, but it only applies to certain loans. If you’re a vet with a private student loan, no EO in the world will help.

Since many States have been begging DeVos to address this problem, this EO handed her the opportunity to ‘fix it’ on a silver platter. During campaign season. Using unconstitutional laws and programs to boot. Warriors, do you see the total lack of local control in education being played out, yet again?!

What happens to any disabled vet with student loans now? Will DeVos manipulate it so that the ‘minimal burden’ will be zero? (It’s zero in HR 3102 for some students) What happens when the ‘minimal’ is still too pricey? What is a vet or their family to do, then? Where is the accountability so that this new policy and system won’t allow for abuse or fraud?
Not that we need the feds to be THAT controlling, but still, where’s the protection for the citizens involved or the citizens left paying for this debt?

Also, Warriors, let’s remember another key point, in my Prudence Files series on 2020 Presidential candidates, several are touting total student debt forgiveness. So why are these people’s plans being spun as socialism and the President’s is being spun as a heroic move? Is not socialism present in this EO? Certainly illegal activity, if nothing else?

keystone-cops-prop-hupmobile
Our nation is hanging on by a thread. Our liberties and freedoms are being taken daily, by DC officials. 

Closing:

Warriors, we MUST take back our education. The government will NOT help us one bit.
Since DC remains a murky swamp, we must not get in the muddy waters with DC. We must stand on the solid ground and march on.

All Encompassing Moves

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, did you know there are 4 US Congressional bills which seek to globalize 2 distinct SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) agenda points in America?

If not, that’s the topic for today’s article.
Meet ‘sisters’ HR 753 and S 324 (Global Electoral bills) along with S 861 and HR 1857 (Global LGBTI* bills).

What will these Bills mean for education, should they become law? Before we find out, remember, that I shared how HR 1 (For the People Act) has quite a few back doors into education with a UN (United Nations) agenda attached. As you know, the SDGs are the  UN’s doing.

evil-sister-quote
HR 1857 and S 861: International Human Rights Defense Act of 2019.

First, let’s define “LGBTI”: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and, Intersexual.

Secondly, What Senators and Representatives running for President (or considering running) are sponsoring or co-sponsoring either of these ‘sisters’?
In the Senate: Co-sponsors, Warren, Gillibrand, Sanders, Harris, and, Booker.(*Note: Sen. Markey is the sponsor and there are a total of 21 Senators backing this.)
In the House: Co-sponsors, Ryan, Moulton, and, Swalwell. (*Note: Rep. Lowenthal is the sponsor.)

When you look below, don’t miss the Trump Administration’s continuation of the Obama Administration LGBTI agenda. How did that happen? Fellow Warrior, Alex Newman explained in 2018, that Sec. Pompeo was the main reason.

s861

Third, these Bills basically use the U.S. State Dept.’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and, Labor to create a new government official position: LGBTI Envoy.

demob

If you’ve not read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the State Dept. has a copy.

Warriors, on Pages 13 and 14 of S 861, I found this: ‘bilateral and multilateral fora’. What in the world is that?!  Well, bi-lateral would mean two nations, or in this case, 2 groups agreeing to make across the board changes. Multi-lateral means many nations, or in this case, many people, agreeing to make changes across the board. Fora (related to ‘forum’) means a central meeting place.
So, in other words, the programs, policies, funding, and whatever else relates to making changes at every level and in every corner for the LGBTI Envoy will be needed. This will not only impact Americans, but the citizens all over the world.

On Page 17, you’ll see that all US federal agencies will need to devote money for programs for the LGBTI citizens here and those who are resettling into America from elsewhere. This will combine government at all levels, non-government groups, and faith-based entities.

Page 18 shows you how the USAID will co-ordinate with the new Envoy. Warriors, as you know, I’ve shown you how the USAID is in the CCSS Machine, as well as the State Dept. Page 19 will reveal the data tracking needed to safeguard LGBTI citizens.

Page 20 shows the “Global Strategy Requirements” needed. Basically total collaboration and co-ordination of all US federal agencies (including the U.S. Dept. of Education). Page 23 will embed child marriage statuses, Page 24 shows the U.S. Global Equality Fund*, while 25 reveals a leadership program for LGBTI activists needs to happen (at taxpayer expense?). (*Note: the GEF, Global Equality Fund is held in the State Dept. and is a P3 (public private partnership).)

HR 753 and S 324, Global Electoral Exchange Act:

Warriors, the sponsor for HR 753 is Rep. Castro (brother to 2020 Presidential hopeful). The Senate version is sponsored by 2020 Presidential hopeful Sen. Klobuchar. The Senate version has one co-sponsor, while the House’s version has 3. (*Note: you can access Klobuchar’s education stance here.)

For my fellow NC Warriors, Rep. Mark Meadows is a co-sponsor on HR 753. You may wish to ask him about his loyalty to the US, and the folks of NC.

What will these Bills do? Warriors, basically, it’s the sense of Congress that we need to employ internationally recognized election ‘best practices’ into the ones held here, in the US. It’s also their sense that other nations can employ American ‘best practices’ in elections. Like the other pair of ‘sister bills’ (above), these Bills authorize the U.S. State Dept. of create and administer GEEP (Global Electoral Exchange Program).

Like the two ‘sisters’ above, these Bills also create a unity between the State Dept. and USAID. How? In the form of awarding financial grants.

geep

Warriors, the U.S. Dept. of Education was not mentioned in either Bill, but we can pretty guess from the information we have that our students will somehow be impacted.

The Americans traveling, as well as the visiting countries cannot influence elections; cannot meddle with legitimacy of elections; and, cannot study any election (local, State, or, federal) without official permission. Congress will also create a GEEP Alumni. After GEEP (should it become law) is in place, bi-annual reports must be given. No end date was given, so we can pretty much guess that HR 753/ S 324 mean to make this permanent. No price tag was given, but I can assure you GEEP will NOT be cheap.

What type of groups are eligible for the GEEP Grants? Any group which defined by the IRS Tax Code of 1986, Sect. 501 (c) (3), as well as tax exempt under Sect. 501 (a).

1986taxcode

Warriors, do you see the danger of our REPUBLIC in these Bills? With all the problems our nation faces why must we see Congress place us in the center of every other country’s business? Do we really need every other country in ours?

While securing humans don’t get attacked for what they are or how they believe, why is the State Dept. increasing in power and authority? As far as our elections? That needs to be within our borders, not spread across oceans.

Since the State Dept. is enlarging (which certainly is not shrinking the federal footprint), we need to look at those leading the Dept.

Are they in the CCSS Machine? Since the State Dept. is a ‘card carrying’ CCSS Machine member, we HAVE to know. (*Note: Sec. Pompeo is most definitely in the CCSS Machine. His top contributors (from his Congressional days) were Koch Brothers/Industries, AT & T, Big Biz, Big Insurance, and, Big Labor.)

Why would Congress wish to make these plans? I believe it’s a way to seek more control over us, as citizens while globalizing our nation in some big ways.

Related Legislation:

There are  redistricting Bills which will feed off the ‘big Census’ (decennial) data. The next ‘big Census’ is in 2020. These will thrive on data collection and storage. If States cannot follow the federal mandates, then the federal government will step in and handle any redistricting measures needed.

There’s also a House bill (HR 51) which will also redesign the nation’s districts/representation by making the District of Columbia into a State. This Bill has lots of support (203 co-sponsors; Reps. Ryan, Moulton, and, Swalwell are the 2020 Presidential hopefuls backing this) in the House. In the Senate, the identical ‘twin sister’ is S 631 (32 co-sponsors; Sens. Sanders, Klobuchar, Harris, Booker, and, Gillibrand are the 2020 Presidential hopefuls backing this version). Warriors, these Bills will also fully repeal the 23rd Amendment of the Constitution.

Census Information Is Used To Create Redistricting:

We know that the 2020 Census has been beefed up to take more of our personal information than ever before. The  redistricting Bills I’ve seen will prohibit States from redistricting in certain ways as well as tell them how to redistrict.
Two of these redistricting Bills have the same name (John Tanner Fairness and Independence in Redistricting Act). The third is called the Coretta Scott King Mid-Decade Redistricting Prohibition Act.

Warriors
, if you’re concerned about seeing your State redistricted and told how to do it, I urge you to take the time to read HR 124 and HR 130 (John Tanner) and HR 44 (Coretta Scott King). These will literally impact your home, your family, and, your neighborhoods.

If you’re concerned about the 2020 Census, I urge you to read the Census Bureau’s Planning Survey (released in Jan. 2019) as well as the Final Report on the focus groups used. You’ll find (Final Report) that education is considered a ‘soft quota data point’ on the Census. So, any question concerning education will be amassed to help community (local, State, and, federal) funding. With the grasp the CCSS Machine has on education, this is crucial.

I did look at the questions on the Planning Survey, and, frankly some were a bit too nosy for my taste. For example, how often are you on the internet? What type of device do you use? Then, there was Question #44:

census

Warriors, if you look at the Operational Design for the 2020 Census, you’ll find that third party data partnerships are a reality. You’ll also see the Census Bureau is going to be pushing on-line participation rather than the old paper forms we have filled out. Much like those high-stakes assessments our students have, I’d say opt for paper & skip on-line.
(*Note: On page 59, you’ll see the redistricting information and how it’s used.)

schoolcensus

(Source)

Let’s remember that the Census Bureau is housed in the U.S. Dept. of Commerce. This federal agency is also a CCSS Machine member group. In the President’s 2020 Budget, you’ll see their connection to education.

Warriors, we also know the Census directly impacts funding and programs in your communities. HR 1451 (Community Service related) is called the “Keep Community Service Local Act”. Now, the odd thing about this Bill is that it prohibits States from ending their Corporation for National and Community Service office UNLESS the federal government approves it. If you’ve not heard of this corporation, you may know it by some of the programs it oversees, AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, etc. I’ve shown you how these are CCSS Machine aligned and will fit into ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act).

How, is THAT State sovereignty? How is THAT local control?

Think about this way, ESSA  mandated that communities align their efforts to ‘student achievement’. Also, community service projects are key to some education programs. By having a national “Mother, may I?” bill hardly seems it’s geared for the citizens. But, then ESSA wasn’t geared for the students, teachers, or, taxpayers either. 

Closing:

Warriors, are you seeing the circle around your community shrinking? I hope so. The government is NOT our friend. It’s not our protector. Government isn’t even listening to us.

As I said in my last article, a full mode of civil disobedience is in order. We cannot allow DC to manipulate us in the ways these Bills are being considered. We have a charge to take down our government when it ceases to be about “We the People” and becomes about ‘We the Corporate Minions’

 

Reduced To Absurdity Via Delphi Moves

Oh, my Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’ve survived yet another election. My hat is tipped to those men and women who ARE against federally led education who ran for office. From what I know, most of them were beaten out by the Establishment. For shame, we need Warriors in power! However, the focus of my article is about the real loser in the 2018 elections: American education.

Education has been reduced to absurdity by the educrats in DC, State and local levels and well as the CCSS Machine. The November 6th, 2018 elections did ZERO to correct this absurdity, either.
In fact, I’ll wager my research, that if anything, the election results will INCREASE the amount of absurdity in education! This might be funny if it weren’t such a nightmare reality for our students, teachers, parents, and taxpayers. So how has this absurdity been pulled off? Delphi Techniques with a dash of Hegelian Dialect thrown in.

Delphi Technique And Hegelian Dialect Moves:

Warriors, Delphi Technique has been used on us many, many times by the CCSS Machine. You know, you go to a school related meeting, you’re placed in groups, given questions and asked to come up with solutions. Then, the results are shared with those asking for your input, yet very few of your solutions appear. What does? The preconceived solutions by the ‘system’.
This type of move gives you a false sense of involvement while the CCSS Machine retains control.

So, what’s the Hegelian Dialect? That’s another type of control method, only it’s done by controlling thoughts. From the Bitter Realities blog it’s described as a “framework for guiding our thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead us to a predetermined solution.”
The effect is, that, once inside that ‘predetermined solution’, you can’t see reality.

.For example, the title of the federal law known as ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is a Hegelian Dialect move.
How? By using carefully placed wording it impressed on the nation a predetermined solution that all students would succeed. The Hegelian Dialect manipulates, as does ESSA. The Hegelian Dialect is a Communist tactic to drive economics.
Guess what? ESSA’s mandates for college/career readiness and workforce aligned education are also a Communist tactic to create worker drones, not educated citizens.

Put the 2 methods (Delphi and Hegelian) together and you’ve got quite a slick sales pitch. Look below at the example when the two are combined.

sekerresearch
Seker’s Research (2015)
(*Note: this will take you to the page to download the Research paper) If you’d like to see my latest IEEE article, visit here.

From the “In Defense of Our Nation” blog, this description of how We the People are being Delphied and Hegelianized to the point of frenzy, “This is how the dialectical process works and it is present in nearly all social issues confronting America.  From global warming to health care, from gun control to wealth inequality we are being led to believe that we are overwhelmed with problems that only government can solve, and to solve them they need us to relinquish more of our God given liberty.”

Warriors, apply this all to education. Then, consider the elections. Those who’ve won, what types of words did they use in the campaign for education? What type of statements were given during the victory speeches?
candycorn

From the ones I’ve read it’s more of the ESSA mandates in Hegelian terms.
For example, ‘more vocational classes’. Since ESSA embedded WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) there’s already nothing BUT vocational education. They are called Career Tech Education (CTE), Career Clusters, Career Pathways, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Back in 2006, ‘vocational tech’ was re-branded to CTE..on purpose. That purpose? Common Core aligned workforce education. When ESSA was passed into law, Common Core was re-branded to ‘challenging State Academic Standards’/’college and career readiness’/post-secondary readiness’.

Bring On the Reductio Ad Absurdum!

Warriors, if you’ve not heard of ‘reductio ad absurdum’ it’s Latin for “Reduced to Absurdity”. Another psychological tactic to mess with our heads and our hearts. The CCSS Machine uses this one, too. So do educrats. How does reducing things to absurdity work? Look below:
reduceded

(Source is here; emphasis added is mine)

What reduction to absurdity about education that’s been uttered by several victors in the 2018 elections have we all heard? “Expansion of school choice”. Warriors, ‘school choice’ as we know it has gone.

That’s due to ESSA’s mandate that ALL education be aligned to post-secondary readiness as laid out by the industry credentialed standards in WIOA.

When all education is the same, how can we realistically expand it? You can’t. The CCSS Machine (and DC) knows this.

You cannot improve on 100%.  The true absurdity is that these people in power will actually REDUCE choices in education. Why or how? Their States are being strung along by the top-down federal control to bow to the United Nations and the global shift in education. That shift? Workforce preparation, not academics.

Closing:

This has ZERO to do with political parties and EVERYTHING to do with being controlled. So, since we all have to live together and work together, help fellow citizens out. Help those newly elected officials out. SHOW them how we’re all being manipulated to meet the CCSS Machine’s agenda in education.

How Much More?

Hello Warriors,

We’ve got several federal level bills, as always, which seem to want to take all we’ve got and even more! As taxpayers, our burdens are quite large. Add to that HOW our tax dollars are used, and we get a boat load of agenda! It doesn’t seem to matter if that agenda is to our liking or not. Once D.C. has got it in its ‘head’, we’ve stuck with the account statement!

What does THIS have to do with education?? PLENTY!

Why The Taxpayers Need To Know:

During this past work week, while knee deep in researching, I was able to help draw attention to some big DC bills. We’re not only expected to pick up DC’s tab, we’re supposed to sit by and watch those dollars be used against our students! If you have followed my research for a long time, you know this will NOT be tolerated. First, off it invades our children’s freedom. Then, let’s talk about their civil right to privacy.

Between ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), and every OTHER law which is related to BOTH (for example: HEA, Higher Education Act), our students will be conformed to fit a business pattern (ESSA’s mandates for workforce aligned education) where their every move is tracked (data mined).

While I’ve been speaking out about the bills, I’ve also been sharing with everyone HOW they can help END this cycle of data mining for an educated workforce. That is by joining the grassroots efforts of http://www.childabuseintheclassroom.com

The two pronged goal of @CAintheCR is 1) Repealing ESSA AND 2) Restoring FERPA. Both of these will help end the cycle.

By our being aware of how ESSA, WIOA, and, HEA are funded, we can also help raise awareness about 1) what our government is setting our students up for, and, 2) knowing how our tax dollars are (or aren’t) being used with OUR representation.

The “Biggies” Right Now:
*NOTE: Both HR 3358 and S 1771 ONLY address the appropriations for the U.S. Dept. of Labor, the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, and the U.S. Dept. of Education. The fact Congress has lumped the 3 US Depts. together in appropriations is not out of convenience, it’s a strategy to help combine WIOA, ESSA, and HEA, along with all the related agencies, contracts, agreements, and strings.

First on our watch list need to the be the House and Senate versions of the FY 2018. House’s is HR 3358. Senate’s is S 1771. Both are very wordy. Both are loaded with trillions of dollars that the majority of will come from our pockets. Both will have massive amounts of those dollars earmarked for the alignment of education to workforce ‘needs’ and data mining to ensure it all happens.

However, we also need to have these following bills in mind. Why? They, too, will extend the ESSA/WIOA/HEA implementation of workforce geared, skill-based education. All these bills and funds will also be used to help wipe out true academics, school choices; bump up assessments for competency levels, and so much more.

THOSE bills? H Concurred Resolution 71 (sets FY 2018 and earmarks FY 2019-2027 funds) is 126 pages. It shows the funding for each House Committee by fiscal year;
S Concurred Bill 3 (earmarks FY 2018-2026 funds) is simply a record of agreement with the House on appropriations; and,
S Resolution 62 (funds all the Senate Committees for FY 2017 through Feb. 28, 2019)

 

Let me share briefly on H 3358 and S 1771, here. I will be covering the 3 above in my video presentation where I will dive further into ALL the bills listed in this article.
When will that presentation be aired? As soon as I can record it, Warriors!

Most noteworthy on HR 3358 are Pages 71 and 101. However, I was able to track down many OTHER connecting dots among the rest of the bill. For content purposes, I’ll only bring up the 2 pages. IF you’d like to know what other dangers I have uncovered, PLEASE do not hesitate to let me know. Each one somehow and in some way connect to ESSA’s plan for workforce shifts in education and/or the continued assault on FERPA’s data mining.

Page 71 is among the many pages devoted to the U.S. Dept. of HHS. On this page you’ll see the plethora of programs mentioned: “..under SSA (Social Security Act) $1.7 billion to be used for children and family services.” Also, on Page 71, $11 billion to the HHS. Among the programs for the $11 billion? Head Start (Early Head Start gets $650 million, on page 73), ESSA, Community Service Development Block Grants (CSDBGs), and several other programs. The CSDBGs may not sound like a problem, but ESSA uses them for Promise Neighborhoods and 21st Century Community Learning Centers. ESSA also uses/abuses Head Start and Early Head Start.

Page 101 is among the pages devoted to the U.S. Dept of Education. Below is a screen shot of my notes for you. I’ll explain after you view the picture.

Warriors, what you are looking at is a $15 billion dollar diagram of all the places it is to be divided per ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act). That’s right HR3358 didn’t refer to any education funding per ESSA, no, it identified all the funds as for ESEA. If you’ll notice, it was HHS which got ESSA funds.

As far as the educational alignment and damage in S 1771, it is almost a mirror image of the House’s version. One notable exception is seen below:

s1771p6
Warriors, remember, ESSA embedded WIOA several times, especially on Page 17 of ESSA where ALL education must be aligned (means ‘learned’ and ‘taught’) to WIOA’s post-secondary readiness NOT academic knowledge.

Also a bit different from the House’s version, but just as damaging is Page 121 of S 1771:

s1771p121
Warriors, again, MORE data mining alignment on our students! Along with all those local, state, and national levels of data sharing, you can bet there are countless other agencies, P3s (public private partnerships), vendors, and nations receiving the data as well.

Closing:

Warriors, from the way I see the research stacking up, there is NO better time to speak up about the taxpayer misuse than NOW! There is NO better grassroots campaign to END the FERPA’s overreach of data mining. There is NO better time to join the fight to REPEAL ESSA! We CAN halt the social and emotional learning that tie ESSA and FERPA  around the necks of our children like a millstone.

We CAN interrupt the massive data mining cycle which continues to assault our rights to freedom and privacy. We DO NOT have to take this type of abuse from our leaders.

Join me for my live presentation (either in person or in an archive version). Learn all the other ways the Congressional bills are laying a trap for educational high-jacking in the name of ‘greatness’ and economic gain.

Lastly, join with me and the other national leaders of “Child Abuse in the Classroom”. Together we can have the damaging reform disrupted.
