A Response

To my fellow anti CCSS Warriors, by default this includes those against the federally led education overhaul, as well as the global overreaches.

We know, from research, that all this can be traced to one source. The United Nations. By default, that encompasses the UNESCO arm. *UNESCO means United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. (To be precise, the ‘z’ is an American spelling, the official spelling uses a ‘s’.) We also know from research that what we have known as education (academics) is becoming ‘education’ (workforce training).

While I’ve seen many anti CCSS Warriors jump up and down with glee over the U.S. State Department’s announcement that the nation is leaving UNESCO, I am not among them.  I will admit, it SOUNDS like a good move, but as always, the research STILL points to many ties which, UNESCO membership or NOT, the US will still be bound by. I’ll say it now, I am choosing to remain on the ‘offense’ side of this War Vs the Core. 

Many media resources happily shared the US’s news about leaving UNESCO, but how many of them included in their headlines that We the People will have to wait until the end of 2018? Do we really think after the many years of the UN’s foundation laying educational overreach, that a measly year will be all it takes to truly be free of UNESCO? The CCSS Machine includes UN/UNESCO.

We have to look beyond the headlines, Warriors!

Some Facts:
1) Go to the U.S. State Dept. website right now and look at their headlining article. It’s not that the US is leaving UNESCO, it’s that we MUST have more STEM, especially for women! This is a UN ‘play by the book’ move, if ever there was one!! In fact, this comes right out of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) Tool Kit.  As we know, the SDGs use ‘education’ as a ‘change agent’ for all kinds of indoctrination.

StateSTEM
In this article for Women and STEM, it states just how committed to STEM the Trump Administration is. Warriors, if ever there was a ‘hiding in plain sight’ statement which reveals the continued shift to un-American ideals, it’s that the DC leadership has totally sold out to this. The article also shows how the President has laid a foundation to cement STEM in America with the NSF and NASA programs. (Both are CCSS Machine supportive)

In the State Department’s “Other News”?  Is the fact the US and China are welcoming 3 more partnerships for economic and technology purposes. So, it’s basically an agreement for MORE STEM (although not using the “STEM” acronym). STEM means “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math”.

2) In fact, a few days ago I exposed much about the UNESCO/UN and their STEM and STEAM (STEAM is STEM with the “Arts” embedded.).

3) Following that information, I showed you how the UN/UNESCO, the WSIS (World Summit on the Information Society) and the use of technology in a “Matrix” form that’s already embedded in the US (and the rest of the world) and will NOT be going away.

wsisunesco
The yellow circles are highlighting that UNESCO is in charge of each of the categories. This is only 1 page of the WSIS/UN’s joint work. UNESCO is only shown 3 times in this screen shot, HOWEVER, the 3 categories are ICT (Information and Communications Technology), Media , and Knowledge! The black boxes show the SDG #4 which is education for all.

4) The US still owes UNESCO money, over $500 million to be exact. UNESCO uses part of the money it receives to oversee our American historic sites which are considered World Heritage sites.
usdebtunesco

5) UNESCO has several P3s (Public Private Partnerships) involved in the World Heritage Sites. How many of these American or American-tied groups will be willing to leave UNESCO?

6) What about the time between now and when the US leaves UNESCO? Well, the US becomes a kind of silent partner. It’ll be around to keep a watchful eye. HOWEVER, that means ‘education’ will still be up for alignment! Also, there’s a big question about the next UNESCO leader.

7) The UN/UNESCO is really pushing AI (artificial intelligence), especially in ‘education’. This article from the Mirror (UK) is down-right creepy. My fellow anti CCSS Warrior, Alex Newman wrote and spoke about the AI being used to advance 2030 Agenda (of which the SDGs are now a part of. Previously, the SDGs were with Agenda 21, but 2030 is the newer version). Here’s what I found out about AI. Again, all this connects back to the massive WSIS/UN/UNESCO data control you see in #3 above.

8) From 2002, an article detailing why (then) Pres. Reagan removed the US from UNESCO. It appears the concern for media control is almost being overlooked in our current situation. This won’t be going away simply because our current Administration plans to remove America from UNESCO.

2002UNESCO

9) The infamous UNESCO/Gates ‘Cooperation Agreement haunts us to the this day. It is THE single most telling root of the UNESCO plan for American ‘education’! This shift is SO embedded in America, thanks to WIOA(Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), and HEA (Higher Education Act) (to name a few laws), that our extraction from UNESCO won’t mean anything different. Add to this the UNESCO (Huxley) idea of what American education should become. After all, it plays right into the UNESCO/Gates Agreement.

schaflyarticle
Also thanks to the UN, our individual States have ‘pimped out’ their schools. In this article, I show you how MN went first back in the 1980s.
Finally, for #9, the UNESCO Publication 356. It lays out what ‘global education’ should be like. There’s a tremendous emphasis on ‘commonalities’. (*Note: I couldn’t find a date of publication, but this document has been around a while.)

10) Back in the 1960s (87th Congress), there was no problem with announcing the UNESCO was Communism after our children. So, what has happened between then and now to go from ‘no way’ to ‘hey, have our kids’?! The CCSS Machine is what’s happened!

11) Back in 2010, (then) U.S. Sec. of Education, Arne Duncan addressed UNESCO. Consider his remarks and how they fit into what was being coerced upon our States. Add to that the 2014 UNESCO Report for how far the shift to Universal Design for Learning (embedded in ESSA) had progressed.

What about Secretaries King and DeVos? Have they spoken out to stop UNESCO? Dr. King is currently the head of The Education Trust which is heavily funded by Bill Gates and other CCSS Machine members. Also at the Education Trust is Amber Arellano. Her biography at the Ed Trust reveals she was previously at the UN’s High Commissioner on Human Rights.

DeVos is mentioned in this Truth in American Education article as well as Sec. Tillerson (State Dept.) as ‘playing’ President Trump with ‘education’. The UN has recognized DeVos’s family business (Amway) as one of the top companies in the world practicing biodiversity (a big component of the SDGs). Be sure to listen to the entire video below. It is from the late 1980s.

Below is a screen shot for you so you can see the other UN accolades for Amway:

AmwayUN

12) UNESCO and aligning teachers has been happening for quite a while. HOWEVER, it will not go away just because the US is leaving UNESCO. In fact, in 2015, the Incheon Declaration was made for all Member States and their commitment to adhering to the SDGs (Warriors, remember, education is Goal #4). As 2030 Agenda compliance dictates, that means our US teachers will have to have their professional development align!

UNESCOedgoal

 

You can see the International Task Force on Teachers (formed 2008, as part of the Onslo EFA (Education For All) meeting) Part 2 Strategy Plan. The Plan was completed in 2016. 

Closing:

Warriors, I realize this may not be a well received article. Truth usually isn’t easy to hear. I do have some optimism about the US leaving UNESCO, but with all this evidence, I am being very cautious in my thinking. I think we all should be cautious. I know we all MUST speak the truth about the CCSS Machine. I want to thank the many dedicated Warriors who supplied their documents for this article.

The “Low Down” in the NoLa

In my last article, Warriors, you got quite a bit of information on STEM, STEAM, and how it’s taking over education.

The “T” stands for ‘technology’. We know the CCSS Machine’s grasp on education cannot survive without technology. We also know the most common form of technology is the computer. Where there’s a computer, there’s data to harvest, transfer, and sell.

In the past, I’ve shared with you the International Data Mining Conferences. If you missed this article of mine from 2016, I urge you to go back and read it. Your freedom of speech in 2017 is connected.
From earlier this year (2017), I showed you how the international data miners use those student profiles. Again, massively important to connect back to ESSA.

Coming  Soon To New Orleans:

“The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining series (ICDM) has established itself as the world’s premier research conference in data mining.” This excerpt is the first sentence you read on the 2017 Conference page. However, the vibrant photos of New Orleans may distract you. What does “IEEE” stand for? “The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.”

https://youtu.be/wJyQwLfPtZ4

So what will the 2017 ICDM bring? Below is a screen shot of the full day workshops. I added short descriptions of each workshop. (*Note: to see the IEEE Educational Partners List, go here. Several schools/businesses from across the world will be presenting work at the 2017 Conference.)

icdm17full
Here are the half day ICDM topics:

icdm17halfThe 2017 Conference’s Keynote speakers are from Harvard (a huge CCSS Machine member school), a Berkeley University AMPLab co-creator, SUNY, NSF, and the WHO. (*Note: look under the “Program” tab for the Keynote Speakers. You can also find the accepted papers from the workshops there.) 

Related:
The IEEE also is key to the Smart Cities (part of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals). Smart Cities also bring us community alignment. ESSA has community alignment, too.

While my town isn’t among the IEEE’s Core Smart Cities, it is among the smaller communities being aligned right under our noses. Kansas City, MO is an IEEE Core Smart City. The U.S. Dept. of Transportation also has a list of Smart Cities. As of this year, there are 7 major cities (Kansas City, MO is among them). From one of the UN’s own Power Point presentation’s:

To access the website, go here.

In August of this year, IEEE embraced the UN’s SDGs during the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS). (*Note: IEEE’s archived documents contain a pdf version of the possible UN approved official language called “UN-Speak”.)

WSIS is also aligned to the UN’s SDGs. When you visit the website, look to the right of the WSIS logo and you’ll see the SDG circle logo. Below is a screen shot of the WSIS actions and how they mesh with the SDGs:

Closing:

Warriors, I hope you see how much we need to continue to fight the CCSS Machine when it comes to data mining. It won’t be going away anytime soon. If you’ve not heard of the national grassroots campaign to “Repeal ESSA and Restore FERPA”, I urge you to visit the website. As long as FERPA stands as it is RIGHT now, the data mining of our students will not only continue, it will increase (as evidence shows above). As long as ESSA stands, the alignment of education to a UN-inspired workforce base continues (and increases as well). What’s happening is Big. Fighting it? It’s not Easy.

Have You Heard?

My Fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have you ever heard of BARDA? I’ll be honest, I hadn’t. However, in looking at the Congressional Appropriations Bills (HR 3358 and S 1771) for the U.S. Depts. of Labor/Health and Human Service/Education, I discovered BARDA. Specifically, the ‘new-to-my-research’ agency was written into the S 1771’s Bill.

On Page 96, you’ll find under the heading of ‘Transfer of Funds‘ for the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, directives for where the NIH (National Institute of Health, a part of the HHS) could use some of the funds. Warriors, remember, these funds are our taxpayer dollars.

On Page 97, is where BARDA first shows up. “BARDA” stands for ‘Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority’.

P97
To access the Public Health Service Act, click here.

BARDA is part of the nation’s PHE System. PHE means Public Health Emergency.
**************************
We’ll look at the BARDA funding and research project near the close of this article. For now, we need to see how, if, at all BARDA plays into the CCSS Machine’s overreach in education.
*************************

Thought:

Warriors, with the word ‘biometrics’,  is there more BARDA does than simply prepare us for the worst scenarios? We know ‘biometric’ devices are used to monitor the SEL (social emotional learning) and have been tied to Common Core.

 

Question:

Now that ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is the law, will biometrics continue to be used? Back in March 2017, I published an article about some (then) current Congressional Bills. Related to them? A 2011 biometric study! Be sure to access this more recent article about the SEL and special needs students via ESSA.

biometricstudy
When I typed in ‘Social Emotional Learning’ into the PHE’s BARDA search bar, what you see below, is what I got back in results.

Warriors, please note I am NOT saying we do not need emergency plans, especially in our schools. BUT, my question is simply this, where does the emergency planning end and the SEL manipulation begin?


Answer #1:

bardasel

Warriors, some of the ‘red flags’ I saw in the highlighted resource in the screen shot above were: all States have behavioral health partners/plans. The plans are to cover emergencies, the partnerships go a bit deeper than ’emergencies only’. Some of these partners happen to be some of the very same ones which have rubbed stamped Common Core, support STEM, have Career Tech Education, or, are CCSS Machine member organizations in on approving the SEL overreach in education!

You can access the 2016 document, here.
(*Note: back in 2014, I wrote how SAMSHA was using Common Core as a tool for gun control via “Project Aware”; in 2015, this article about mental health and the manipulation of it in education for workforce needs. Then, in 2016, this article gives you a big run down of the federal level of overreach in not only mental health with agencies like SAMSHA, but many others!)

In the 2016 Document (above), look for the bottom of Page 14, ‘federal behavioral health support usually involves the provision of technical assistance, educational resources..’ (‘technical assistance’, more times than not, means data mining in some form)
Page 15, an inter-agency council for behavioral health: Forum on Medical and Public Health Preparedness for Disasters and Emergencies. This Forum is a P3 (Public Private Partnership). It’s been around since 2007.

Getting back to BARDA:

This 2014 article likens BARDA to a venture capital group hidden in DC.
Warriors, we know how toxic venture capitalists have been in education. Where health and education intersect is probably just as bad.

As far as the 10 year contract mentioned in S 1771 for BARDA? It appears that is a continuation of a project which began back during President Bush’s (the first) administration. It’s known as Project BioShield, (PB).
From the Strategic Plan (2011-2016) for PB, an increase in public private partnerships (P3s); 21st Century skills; a workforce steeped in science and technology (which of course means STEM education and STEM jobs); and, all which connects them.  

Warriors, the PB price tag is in the billions. (*Note: refer to the highlighted “Bush” above. When that document opens, look to your right for ‘funding’).

Two resources for more about Project BioShield can be accessed here. Johns Hopkins (a known CCSS Machine member) and Oxford Press have articles.

STEM Endorsed by PHE:

Warriors, remember that BARDA is under the Public Health Emergency (PHE) arm of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services. I was able to find on the PHE’s blog, not only an endorsement for early emergency preparation by studying STEM in 2017, but how the PHE is working in the context of a 17 year (began 2009) partnership for global health.

As we know from research, global health is part of the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). STEM is a part of the SDGs, as well as part of the CCSS Machine.

Closing:

Warriors, S 1771 and its partner Bill HR 3358 lock in all the funds for things like BARDA and more educational overreach on 10/7/17. The LAST day to raise any challenge is 10/6/17. IF you’ve not contacted your Senator or Representative about the massive amounts of overreaching taxpayer-abused-funds. Please hurry!

Know Thy Worth?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’re quickly approaching a new school year (2017-18). It’ll be another year of contention for those who are dead-set against the CCSS Machine

Over the summer, many of us have continued to chip away at the facade of how ‘local’ ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is and the true identity of the global, UN (United Nations) grasp over our federal government’s adherence to the modern education reform.

Would You Know What the Global CCSS Machine Values Are?

Warriors, did you know that the UN has ROI (Return on Investment) formulas for education? These formulas, of course will include assessements (tests), teaching, and other factors. However, it’s not the student who will come out the winner, but the businesses AND economy which will reign supreme in education. Why? Workforce based, skilled citizens. If the UN has such, we can ‘bet the bank’ the USA does, too.

Needed Background Information:

For example, back in 2014, I wrote an article about a local meeting which laid out the intersecting of the working world, politicians, and education. Oh, and, yes, the business world was represented by the State level Chamber of Commerce. Look below for a sample of what I shared then.

parentproblemTo see and read the rest of the article, go here. If you’ve not seen how the P3s (public private partnerships) influence your local education system, visit here.

Warriors, we must remember, P3s are increased in power, thanks to ESSA. Globally speaking, their power is enormously strong, as well. The SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) provide the way for this across the globe.

Here, in America, a series of federally passed laws provide the way. Chief among them are: ESSA, WIOA, HEA, the STEM Act, and many more. If you missed how the P3s are running higher education as a ‘return on investment’ for the economy, check out my 2015 article where you’ll see your students on a wheel.

Also, Warriors, keep in mind, the big corporations are not the only investors in ‘education’. The SBA (Small Business Administration) is knee-deep in the alignment/investing ploy, too. These will be the more ‘local’ overreaches you see today.

Warriors, we know of plenty of American career tracking, but what about the international career tracking and/or skill based tests? Are there any? Of course!
Back in March 2017, I shared with you the ties between American and the PIAAC (Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies). This test measures our adults (and thus, teachers, education leaders) and their ‘value’ to the economy.

Your Global Worth?

So, how does all this tie to the UN’s SDGs?! Watch the short video below. It features a school leader (early 2017) explain ‘rigor’ in the global scheme of things. While I listened to this man, I heard so many words with very little meaning. (A classic tool of the CCSS Machine) This school is an American school (Ranney School in NJ. It’s an  independent school which is a UN partner school. Ranney School also is con-joined with Monmouth University as another UN partner school.

Warriors, did you catch the ‘innovation’ plugs? Did you hear the ‘what’s taught’? The Tool Kit for teaching the SDGs is full of how to teach to manipulate values, beliefs, and attitudes. (*Note, when you access the article, you can also get to the entire 142 page Tool Kit. Simply click on the phrase ‘tool kit’ in the section beginning with “From 2002..”)

basic
How did I find out about the NJ schools and their UN partnerships? Their project is being tracked in real time by the UN itself! If you’d like to see the entire results, go here.
Be sure to look for the ‘measured outcomes’ of the project.

If you’d like to see more about this from Ranney’s media, I urge you to access it here.
If you’d like to see and learn more about the Global Citizen Signature Program which is also a part of the Ranney School, click here. Look below for a screen shot:

GCsignatureIs the Ranney School exclusive in the US as a UN partner? Hardly. It’s simply an example for this article. According to the UN’s SDG Initiative Tracking website, there are 524 other global education partnerships in progress right now. If you’d like to see them, find them here. However, remember, Warriors, education is the preferred ‘change agent’ so the alignment in education will be in ALL 17 goals for SD (Sustainable Development), not simply one.

A Big Clue:

As far as anyone’s worth in the current education takeover/reform? It’s not what you know, it’s how you work. Listen to the job forecast in the video below:

Warriors, you can access the article which is to accompany this video. You’ll want to make note of their mention of the U.S. Dept. of Labor (and others). Remember, EVERY Cabinet level agency is in on the CCSS Machine’s workforce shift. Why? As an active SDG Resolution signing country, we must shift education. Look below at the website I found on the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s website:

Find the Handbook here.

How the OCED* (Organization for Cooperation in Economic Development) rates ‘returns on investment’ in education. This 2009 Report looks at student outcomes and the cost of educating people. (*Note: OCED is a partner via the Global Compact of the UN.)

This un-dated World Bank “education return on investment” shows how education and growth for economics should be a hand-in-hand process.

UNICEF (a part of the UN), in their 2015 Report, stress a hefty return on investment via education of up to 30%.

Closing:

Back in 2016, MarketWatch’s website suggested we ‘moneyball’ education. Maybe they read ESSA better than those who voted on it. Moneyballing is exactly what will be happening more and more in American classrooms of all ages. We can also expect those bankrolling education will have many strings in the way education is conducted. Expect more of a business, not a labor of love, Warriors.

Do the better ‘thing’, the ‘smarter than the global-UN/US thing’: Don’t send your students back to school! Hug them instead, talk with them about their TRUE value and worth. It is beyond ANY amount of money!

Update on “Of Late”

When I wrote “Of Late”, I knew there were several key pieces of evidence to present and somehow tie together. 

Almost immediately after the article hit the social media circuit, I got at least 2 other leads from fellow Warriors, making EVEN more connections to the subject matter in “Of Late”. If you missed that topic, it was all about the how our current U. S. Congress is bowing MORE to a global vent for workforce based education for all ages and all educational choices.

What follows is to be used as tools for every anti Fed Ed Warrior out there. Yes, it’s in-depth. But, it needs to be.

Where I Left Off:

Warriors, I left you with the confirmed evidence that American education is being used as a tool against us for the purpose of reshaping our nation. To continue that re-shaping, look to North Dakota, first.

Heading West:

My fellow Warrior from “The Roughrider State”, noticed that some of the items I shared seemed a bit TOO familiar. She then referred me to Gov. Burgum’s recent Innovation in Education Summit. She laid out some quick facts about the ties some of those presenting ‘expert’ evidence have to the CCSS Machine. She heavily questions how well these people represent the values of the North Dakotians.

burgum

I  found Dintersmith involved in another education reform area (which was also another tip from my ND friend). That is the “Most Likely to Succeed” documentary. This was filmed back in 2015 and was considered a hit by the Sundance Film Festival. What the documentary shows is chilling, Warriors. Below is the just over 2 minute trailer. Notice the key CCSS Machine members (Robinson is tied to Pearson, Khan is tied to the Khan Academy and received Gates Foundation funding to switch to CCSS, Common Core State Standards.)

(*Note: the full length documentary is not available legally for free on You Tube due to copyright issues.)
Below is a ‘team’ spirited description about the documentary. The number one team member? Dintersmith!

mostlikely1
If you’d like to see the “Most Likely to Succeed Learning Sparks” (short videos to spur you into action to help create more ‘innovation’ in your schools), find them here. Warriors, you find out how to ‘hack’ education and more. Look for Linda Darling-Hammond to be among the ‘experts’. Try not to cringe.

Warriors, I haven’t forgotten Dintersmith’s assignment by former President Obama (in the brief bio description above) to the UN. Neither should you.

Time and time again, I’ve shown you fact based research on how the former leader and his administration bent over backwards to help continue the cycle of ‘dumbing down’ American education.
There was the PCAST Report from 2010 where STEM was ushered in as a disguise for the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), thanks to the NSF (National Science Foundation) and many other CCSS groups. There was also ‘innovation’ after ‘innovation’ initiative or some digital push to be foisted on our teachers and students.

Thanks to ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), those ‘innovation’ and digital overhauls are 100% certain. Has our current President slowed any of this down? Hardly.

Mr. Trump has, in fact, seemingly turned a deaf ear to the CCSS Machine’s technology de facto moves.

To see what Pres. Obama’s White House Report (Next Generation High Schools) featuring Mr. Dintersmith, contained, look here.

Warriors, remember, Dintersmith is a business man, not an educator. The fact sheet for the same White House Report reveals not only a big STEM push, but CTE (Career Tech Education) push, too. Both STEM and CTE are tied up in CCSS, apprenticeships, and the global education scheme of the United Nations.

Getting Back To The “Most Likely”:

Warriors, here’s an almost 30 minute video featuring the producer and lead team member for “Most Likely to Succeed”. You’ll not only see clips from the full documentary, you’ll hear first hand pro CCSS Machine discussion. Once again, Linda Darling-Hammond will surface during this video with her explanation as to how ‘grit’ will help solve the outdated American education. Listen all the way to the end. There is key evidence there.

Meanwhile In North Dakota:

One of the major concerns of my ND Warrior friend is shared by others in a few other States. The profiling of our high school students. If you’ve heard of “NorthStar” you know what I mean. The Facebook group Educray is based in TX. When my ND Warrior shared her concerns on social media, Educray was quick to join her. See below:

northstar
From TX, the Highland Park ISD graduate profile reeks of “content rich” global citizens rhetoric.

To see the Profile of a Graduate/EdLeader21 description of these types of data mining profiles, access the information here. To see the 4 Cs, collaboration, creativity, communication, and, critical thinking (which replace the 3 Rs in education), look here.
Getting Smart (Tom VanderArk) has a detailed article and podcast you’ll need to investigate. You’ll see other States using these profiles for ‘quality education’.

ReTool Your School:

Also featured in the ND Innovation Summit was “School ReTool”. If you’re not familiar, have you noticed how many of our schools are building torn down to be replaced by buildings which could double as a prison? To find out about this movement and how it connects to the global scheme:

https://vimeo.com/album/3269852

If you wonder about the ReTool’s ‘mission’? Look below:

retool1

 Among School ReTool’s Partners? Groups from ME, NH, CO, CCSS Machine members Hewlett Foundation, Ted Dintersmith, and more. Find the rest here.

Part of the ‘retooling’? “Academic interships”..a fancy name for ‘Apprenticeships’!! If you’ll remember, Warriors, most of the “Of Late” article spells out for us the global ties to apprenticeships, higher education, and more. To see School ReTool’s Academic Internship plot, visit here.

Warriors, since most of the apprenticeships and internships are targeting our high schoolers in an attempt to groom them for higher education, we know to be watching the post-secondary reform like a hawk. You also know, I have been helping you do just that for years. EdWeek has an article, published earlier this week which reveals some valid points (even for a pro CCSS/ESSA source).

Point #1: Since the U.S. Secretary DeVos has been in office, she’s tackled much more higher education reform than K-12th grades.
Point #2: There’s a ton more federal control on colleges, community colleges, proprietary (for profit) schools, and all the early college, skill prep programs to unite K-12th to post-secondary education.

Innovation Kills:

Warriors, much of the conversation about all this alignment, reform, and increased innovation leaves out the bare faced fact that innovation actually stunts our minds.
How? Too much of anything is bad for us. As the push to unite the USA to a global education continues; technology and innovation/infrastructure for such will continue to envelope us. 

Released in 2016, is the short You Tube film which depicts a father and child. Conformity to a work/school system is the topic. According to the resource I found highlighting this film, the tone of the writer is that we must change society to join work and education.
Exactly the message we are hearing from the UN, Congress, and our Administration in Washington, D.C. 

The writer stresses that is it our current mindset toward work and school which is killing our student’s minds. In the fact-based research and evidence, it is the CCSS Machine grasp on education which is doing the stunting. NOT parents, not our environment.

I was able to find that one of the producers of “Alike” (Daniel M. Lara) is tied to the Blender Foundation and their 2016 Conference, where he was a featured speaker. Blender Conferences have been an annual event for a while now. Blender’s focus? Arts, technology, animation, and all related subjects. I also found that the Blender Foundation was cited as a resource (page 86) in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) publication from 2015 for IGI Global for use in America. This Google Book is a goldmine of education reform. Chapter 83 is all about embedding pedagogy into NGSS (Next Gen Science Standards), you’ll see how innovation is to be used to target those ‘less academic’ than their peers, you’ll find out STEM is being unleashed on our babies, how ‘blended learning’ and PBLs (Problem Based Learning) is to shift education’s responsibility from teacher to student as a force tactic, future trends for K-20 education (kindergarten to 4 year college degree or similar), service based education (as in grooming the ‘collective, global citizens’), computer games as science teachers, multi-pronged distance education, how the Europeans are educating in these ways, open source lectures (coding classes will tie in here), and, more. (*Note in the beginning pages the number of American Universities.)

A 2014 Oregon State University Blender Camp brochure. Warriors, it will show you how ‘blending art’ and STEM fit into the classrooms.

A Blender Foundation “STEM in the Classroom” example. It’s called “Teach STEM Now”.

Interestingly enough, Betsy DeVos and Ivanka Trump just promoted more girls to STEM in the Smithsonian Museum, 7/25/17. They teamed up back in March 2017 to do much the same. (*Note: Not so funny, one of the UN’s SDGs is promoting women in education, especially STEM.)

IGI Global has a Pearson Publishing assessment available for a price. Check it out.

Last Stop, North Carolina:

Warriors, as you know I’ve shared with you how sold out to the CCSS Machine, NC is. Living here has given me the opportunity to show you things to watch for. Look below. One of the NC legislators is bragging on how ‘we’ will be the first in the nation for state-wide classroom internet access. Remember, ESSA’s mandates in technology include such. Way to align, NC.

Access the “Economist” article and you’ll literally read the beginning words with the name of B.F. Skinner, quickly followed by Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerburg.

Closing:

The long road of reform to a global education is fully in the works. Warriors, let’s get busy!

Of Late

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, it is crystal clear where the heart of our Congress members is these days. At almost break-neck speed, we are seeing proposed bill after bill hastily written at the beck and call of the lobbyists and corporations. No longer is Congress, or our current adminstration, being shy about drowning out the voices of America’s people when it comes to education. When Congress was established it was to SERVE the citizens and REPRESENT them. In the ever-present march to globalization, however, we see Congress SERVING citizens up as pawns on an international chess board. Congress has chosen to REPRESENT the lobbyists and corporations instead of her people.It appears our administration has sided more on the side of global good than true American greatness.

While we are hearing from D.C. many mixed messages about ending federal overreach in education, we are NOT seeing it. Rather, we are seeing an INCREASE. Warriors, thanks to the U.S. participation in the U.N., G20, and all the other international clubs bowing to the UN’s GEF (Global Education for All) scheme.

Warriors, quite simply, America is being detracted from the truth.

How? For example, while there’s an order to halt the federal overreach in education, it only stops at the U.S. Dept. of Education..it does not include the other Cabinet level agencies also actively involved in the federal overreach! That’s like saying I have a roach infestation and only kill the one roach which dared to cross my path. Several others are lurking about. 

So, what’s a Warrior to do? Fight like hell. Get so angry you actually stop Congress. Like bugs which dare to go out alone, we’ll be squashed. BUT, if we unite more focused than ever, WE can STOP Congress. Our forefathers and mothers certainly had no problem using gumption and truth, neither should we.

Consider for whom you fight everyday in the War vs the Core. Is it your children? Is it a family member? Is it a neighbor? Are you fighting because you are sick of illegally based federal power causing so much damage and abuse?

Why should we continue to be armed and fight the CCSS Machine? (remember, the Machine is made up of corporations, legislators/legislation, the people in each and connected, as well as the investors.) It should be because it’s the right thing to do or a similar motivation.

As you know, earlier in the summer, I shared a 4 part series available on You Tube. The series is designed to arm all of us involved in education with important facts based on research, not corporate propaganda. More recently, a quarter of Warriors, created a 2 part interview with the latest Congressional deception bills (for ‘free college’), as well as HOW these ‘American ideas’ tie directly to the global models of continuted education overreach.

ICYM Them or want to be as armed as possible…

You Tube Series:
Part One: Shifting Education to workforce needs not academics will harm every education choice and impact every citizen.

Part Two: How the digital technology and data mining lurk to unite work and education to a global good, not an American greatness.

Part Three: Probably the most damning of all the shiftiness in education is ‘school choice’. ESSA and global education use ‘choice’ as a tool against us, not for us!

Part Four: Who is really in control in ‘local education’? It isn’t who we think!



One of our active Warriors recently created the screen shot you’ll see below to sum up the angst among us over the workforce/global federal overreach into our classrooms. My thanks, to Paul Raymond for this.

A D.C. Hearing Set For July 26:

apphearing

I found similar news in England, Warriors. According to the publication, The Guardian, a government levy (tax) is to be imposed by 2020 for business funded apprenticeships. The article suggests the apprenticeships are a ‘comeback kid’ for their nation. If we heard any news from D.C. last week, it included American goods made in America. Warriors, that means jobs. Jobs mean apprenticeships are a distinct possibility. We know from previous research how deep the union between work and education goes.

If you wonder if America’s Congress will have business fund more items in education, you should know that ESSA increases the footprint for business/corporate intrusion. So do the ‘free college’ proposed bills currently in Committees of both the House and Senate. (You’ll find that information in the Truth for Our Time, Part Two segment.)

Related to the Global Push for American education:

The first UN higher education facility is underway. How soon will we see this in our nation?
A new report  (2016) for grooming teachers and students in the UN way, can be found here. As I asked on Facebook, if your teachers were being groomed in this manner, would you still send your kids to school? The report specifically states that the guiding force is not American, but adheres and supports the Sustainable Development Goals (education is #4) and how education is the perfect change agent.

How apprenticeship legislation from America (and other countries fits the global framework (look for the ‘human capital’ circle at the bottom of the picture) You can access the map for yourselves (will be easier to read), just scroll down the page until you see the same as below.

How does the UN ‘measure’ humans? You be able to learn how in the embedded 2016 Report. See the ‘why’ (below).

Closing:

Warriors, as you can see, a lot is going on. We cannot be complacent. We must use information such as this to keep not only ourselves ready for fighting, but those around us. Warriors, it’s not just about education..it wasn’t supposed to be. The American reform we are seeing and living in is more about reshaping our nation. Education just happens to be the favored conduit by which to quietly align America with. Question is: will we make noise?!

Finally, Warriors, trust no one in D.C. when it comes to education. After all, that is none of their business!

US fed statute

Illusions of Higher Aspirations, Pt. 2

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, today’s article is the follow up to Wednesday’s revelations about the S 806 “College for All Act of 2017”. In that article I laid out the illusions crafted by the U.S. Senate, at the beck and call of the CCSS Machine’s agenda. I showed you 17 illusions hiding in plain sight among 51 pages of this Act

Warriors, please, do NOT assume this is a political party specific play into the CCSS Machine’s working. This is from all political parties! The biggest illusion from Congress, is that S 806 and others like it, are American made based on American needs. BS!!
No, these type of bills are directly bowing to the UN’s “Education for All” campaign as well as the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). If you’ve missed HOW, the article from yesterday has links.

For the remainder of this article, we’ll take a look at the U.S. House of Representative’s HR 1880. It is their version of the “College for All Act of 2017”.  The fallacy of ‘free’ college is extorted in this Bill, just like S 806.

Remember, both HR 1880 and S 806 are to be amendments to the existing HEA (Higher Education Act).

HR 1880 Fast Facts:

1) It is 51 pages long, just like it’s ‘sister’ bill: S806.
2) You can access the entire HR 1880 here.
3) There are several Representatives sponsoring and co-sponsoring this Bill. Reps. Jayapal, Ellison, Scott (VA), Grijalva, Nolan, Mrs. Lee, Pocan, Jackson-Lee, Khanna, Mrs. Norton, Velazquez, Conyers, Raskin, Swalwell, Cicilline, Welch, Napolitano, Langevin, Blumenauer, and Espaillat. (*Note: for all practical purposes, HR 1880 is a carbon copy of S 806)
4) HR 1880 was introduced on April 4, 2017 (S 806 was introduced on 4/3/17). The Representative’s Bill is in the hands for Education and Workforce Committee. You’ll find pro-CCSS/CTE Chairwoman Foxx there. She’s been quoted in total support of the workforce shift in education. See below:

The Illusions of Higher Aspirations Continue in the House:

My fellow Warriors, here are the items our Representatives have embedded in HR 1880:

1) Creating federal and state partnerships for higher education funding. Given via grants to wipe out tutition and related fees in all public and Native American colleges/universities. This will encompass all community colleges, early college programs, dual enrollment, concurrent enrollment, and all ages of those attending.
Just like S 806. the illusion of State-led exclusiveness in education. Also, just like S 806, non-federal funds must be supplied. HR 1880 states no ‘in-kind contributions’ will be allowed to count towards those non-fed funds. (‘in-kind contributions’ are goods and services, not money.)

No where in our U.S. Constitution is the federal government allowed to overreach in education..at ANY age!

2) Since dual enrollment and early college programs are embedded, so will the ESSA’s mandates concerning the students and teachers involved. Warriors, ALL education choices have open access to these!  ESSA, as we know is short for “Every Student Succeeds Act”.

3) Student data collected goes to the U.S. Secretary of Education. Warriors, the illusion of said data remaining in the U.S. Dept. of Education and going nowhere else is intended here. As we know, all Cabinet agencies and countless others share student data. Most especially the U.S. Depts. of Labor/Health and Human Services. Why? Aligning data makes accountability so much easier! Another illusion.

4) Just like S 806’s language, HR 1880’s has the Secretary of Education deciding which States receive grants; States will have to submit annually applications to the Secretary of Education as well. Also giving power to the Sec. of Education, is the right to challenge any State’s projected enrollment formulas.
Illusions of State-led authority in education is being used here.
(*Note: Grants ‘awarded’ equal 67% for higher education instutions not of Native American service. For the Native Americans, the grants are 95%. If you are looking for the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), those requirements begin at the bottom of Page 28. For the increase in power the Secretary of Ed will have in determining Work Study Programs, begin on Page 42.)

5) HR 1880’s language also includes the use of any State’s GDP to adjust expected enrollment formulas. This will impact those fed-state grants. You can see an illusion of more State-led control being used. You will also see a State-level push for economics. In the CCSS Machine’s agenda, carried out by WIOA and ESSA (and soon, HEA), the economy is more important than education.

6) The State required compliance measures begin on Page 18. The laundry list is quite detailed and is just like S 806’s. The reality here will be the States bowing to the federal government. The illusion is all this is done for ‘student success’.

7) Each State Governor (or his or her appointee) will be required to not only submit any information the Sec. of Ed deems needed,  but, those applications to receive federal-state grants. Illusions of data privacy, citizens protection, and, State-led education are ripe here.

8) Once all college tutition and related fees are wiped out using the fed/state/non-fed grants, any balance of money goes to expanding ‘student success’ activities, programs, work based skill building opportunities; and, for teachers and staff, increases in personnel for ‘instructor faculty’. Note that the exclusion of ‘in-kind contributions’ is not included in this section (Pages 25/26).What illusions do you see here, Warriors?
(*Hint: Those goods/services from the CCSS Machine appear to have an open door. Think they’ll take it?)

9) For the teachers and staff, the same PD (professional development) language as S 806.

Look below for just one of the price tags HR 1880 has in store for Americans:

HR1180p28

10) Following the section addressing HBCUs, we’ll see another price tag to give America ‘free college’ access:

HR18880p40

12) TRIO and GEAR UP federal workforce based programs will see a big increase at taxpayer expense. Warriors let’s remember that P3s (public private partnerships) are also footing quite a few educational bills as well.
How much more will TRIO/GEAR UP cost? Look below:

HR1880triogear
Warriors, if you are not sure how TRIO and GEAR UP are tied to the CCSS Machine, find that here. We also need to see the illusion that TRIO and GEAR UP are education based. They are also found in the WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) as well as ESSA.

13) Just like S 806, HR 1880 has an increase for expanding Job Development locations and programs. This directly plays into WIOA. WIOA uses student data to streamline education to that of career tracks for jobs/economic gain..not personal academics.
Illusions of freedom of choice in what our students learn is used here. This is where ‘personalized’ education will show its sinister underbelly. The cost for this portion of HR 1880?  Find it below:

HR1880p42
14) As with S 806, the HR 1880 has language which suggests a lower student debt loan burden. But, at what or who’s expense?! An illusion of ‘my college experience’ is happening here.

Collective society paying for everyone’s education is NOT American. It is not an American idea based on American character traits.

If we give someone something, it is valued far less than when it is achieved personally.

All we need to do Warriors, is look at the nations WITH ‘free college’. Their cost of living is horrendous. Ask a student who has attended one of these institutions. What they learn is not self-supporting, it’s intended purpose is to keep one in some sort of controlled learning enviroment for a very long time. How do I know this? A couple of years ago, during a radio interview a Dutch student called in to share his experience. His advice? Do NOT become like them!
If you’ve not seen the European Youth Guarantee Program (which also uses the idea of ‘free college’, ‘free work based training’), I urge to see the You Tube video from 2013:

Closing:

Warriors, it is a long used tactic in D.C. for each Chamber of Congress to use bills which are either exactly like each other’s or very slightly different. HR 1880 and S 806 are in this category. The ‘take away’? The CCSS Machine is determined this type of alignment and control is embedded in the HEA’s newer version. We have much to look out for, as we continue to see the shift from American academic based learning to that of a UN, globally contrived common worker.
