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%.

How the USA rates ‘returns on investment’ in education can be found on the website “U.S. Global Leadership Coalition”.
The member organizations and corporations for the US GLC include some of the biggest CCSS Machine groups. Find them here.

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!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwjtYi63syk

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).

humancost

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:

foxxed

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.

Education’s “Cooked Goose”

Warriors, we know education in America can be considered a ‘hot mess’. The state of education in the ESSA Era (Every Student Succeeds Act) could also be referred to as a ‘train wreck’.

For this article, I chose ‘cooked goose’. Why? It’s meaning as a phrase expresses spoiling plans; ruining someone’s opportunities. In other words, succeeding won’t happen.

Warriors, plainly stated, ESSA will NOT give our student success at what THEY want. It is designed to link itself to the WIOA, STEM Act, HEA, and all other related workforce/education laws. (*WIOA: Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act; STEM is short for Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math; HEA: Higher Education Act)

Before we point the finger exclusively to Washington, D.C.; we must point it back to the CCSS Machine and it’s association to UNESCO.
************************************************************************************
Yes, before Bill Gates signed that ‘one curriculum for every child’ agreement (2004), there was the UNESCO publication called the International Classification of Standards.
************************************************************************************
The document was used as a basis for a presentation in 2009 by a team of ‘education experts’. Sutton and Golder. What was the point of this team in using a 1997 document?
***********************************************************************************
It was the same thing which prompted Gates to sign his agreement:

By Aligning TECHNOLOGY in EDUCATION, More ALIGNMENT in LIFE

For where’s there technology, there’s data. Where there’s data, there’s money to be made.
Quality education? Left by the wayside, Warriors.

Who Are Sutton and Golder?

Dr. Staurt Sutton is from the University of Washington at Seattle
Diny Golder
(aka: Diny Golder-Dardis) is a co-founder of P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills) She is also key to JES and Company.
(*Note: the embedded link for Golder is to a 2003 Symposium paper about increasing technology. You’ll see her roles in both capacities mentioned. You’ll also see the U.S. Dept. of Education’s involvement. You’ll also be directed to some external links about the CEO Forum. I was unsuccessful accessing these. However, I did find a 2001 publication by the CEO Forum. It’s cover states it all.)

CEO


Back to Sutton and Golder’s involvement:
Together this team produced 3 white papers together. All 3 were based on increasing technology in our classrooms; for teachers and students. They wrote these 3 papers for the ASN (Achievement Standards Network).

If you’ve not heard of the ASN, it was created by Golder and Sutton with grant money (2 grants) awarded them by the NSF (National Science Foundation), under the JES and Company’s name.

NSF is the group which created the acroynm “STEM” for marketing purposes in education. STEM is a tool used by the UNESCO for pushing the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) in education.

Helping expand the ASN was a generous Gates grant award in 2012 to JES and Co.

In 2013, my dear anti CCSS Warrior friend, Donna Garner, published an article tying ASN, Jes and Co. to the CSCOPE (TX’s supposedly not-CCSS educational framework and standards) and the EdGate organization.

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

ASN is now owned by D2L. D2L was founded in 1999 by John Baker of Canada. Today, D2L has some of the biggest CCSS Machine members as partners. Their ‘job’? Tying more technology and education together.)

Other Sutton and Goldar Work:

In 2008, it was a paper on matching education resources to education standards for all the grade levels between K and 12th grade. This document appears to be for the National Science Digital Library. It’s about how to use metadata.
In 2009, it was all about discovering concepts in education via learning objectives. It is in this document they base their findings and solutions off of the 1997 UNESCO Report. (*Note: the 2010 paper they wrote was for Australia’s curriculum and configuring it to RDFs).

SuttonGolderUN
UNESCO:

The 1997 Standards document was updated, just 2 years later (1999). It is in this one where you’ll begin to see the UIS (UNESCO Institute for Statistics) begin to surface.

STATISTICS means DATA; DATA needs MINING to be put into STATISTICS.
*********************************************************************************
Look at the way it’s portrayed on the website:

undata

Look at the reality of data ‘transformation’:

UNdatatrack

Warriors, why would I use ‘track’? Think about it, the technology increases in American classrooms are designed to track progress; to measure mental abilities. These results are then used to track the courses/classess and eventual careers. ESSA, WIOA, and HEA embed it. STEM increases it! There’s another reason I chose the word ‘track’:

pressureon
Warriors, ‘technical’ means technology use, which we know is data. We also know, that technology is part of ‘innovation’. Innovation has been used as a tool to update ‘infrastructure’. Education is being used as a tool to pump up jobs and the economy.

Do we see ANYWHERE in these contrived plots: a child’s desire to become what THEY want? Do we see anywhere how teachers can TEACH without conformity?! NO!

        Education’s goose has been royally cooked!

I urge you to read the information from the above screen shot here. It will lay out the indicators by which our students and teachers will be aligned to. It will explain how this data is to be used, and include the GAML (Global Alliance to Monitor Learning). The GAML is doing its own ‘cooking geese’ with assessments and data mining.

Warriors, remember, the SDGs are all to be in place by 2030.

Tying This Back To The American Push for Technology/Data:

Warriors, the way ESSA is written, an huge increase in technology, data mining is in the works. It is because of the foundational shift created in part, by folks like Sutton and Goldar, that we are so far down the path to comply with the U.N.
Sutton and Goldar are hardly alone. We know the CCSS Machine has been infiltrating companies, legislators, and everywhere in between to force us to assimilate into the overall plan to ruin education.

One of the biggest data mining tools which unites education and jobs, here in America are the SLDS and the WQDI (Student Longitudinal Data System and Workforce Quality Data Initiative). These track your student (regardless of their educational choice) from the classroom to their careers…and beyond.

No Strings Attached?

Warriors Against Fed Ed, we’ve seen the influence of money in the modern education reform. We’ve seen our tax dollars used in ways to spur this reform on at a break-neck speed. It’s also not new news that big business has spent a fortune pumping their money into the effort to re-shape education…and thus, re-shape our nation.

We also know that Common Core (in its old name OR under any of its re-brands) is part and parcel of EACH of our States. So, what happens when you:

A Map Paints The Picture:

Forbes’ State by State 2016 List also gives you clues as to who and what groups help run your State. As we’ve learned he/she who holds the purse strings more than likely interferes in education/workforce in your backyard. (*Note: you can access a full size map like the one below on Forbes’ website.)

richdoesntmeanright
I urge you to look at the List. Some of the education reformers will be super easy to spot. For example, Bill Gates in Washington.

Others will be obvious to only a few folks. For example, you’ve heard of SAS, Inc.’s involvement in data mining for the CCSS Machine, but would you know the name of the owner? It’s James Goodnight and he’s from NC.

Then, there are other rich citizens who’ve created foundations by which to conduct their reform agenda, especially in education. For example, Vermont’s John Abele has the Argosy Foundation which funds the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Competitions in schools. You’ll find STEM and CCSS being promoted without abandon in these activities. Look below, Warriors. Agenda..right in plain sight and dressed as fun.

FIRST
Warriors, these men are far from the only ones in the CCSS Machine. Argosy isn’t the only Foundation, either.

Below, find my list of the people and their organizations I think are the ones we should really look into. It will expand what I’ve revealed for you above. Are these, people ALSO helping the education reform agenda?!

NM: Marbob Energy/Mack Energy and the Chase Foundation (ties to Mack C Chase)
NH: JAB Holding, Inc (global and ties to Andrea Reimann-Ciarcelli)
ME: Dexter Shoes/Berkshire Hathaway (Bill and Susan Alfond who are tied to Warren Buffett)
UT: Salt Lake City Community College’s Board Chair, Gail Mitchell (also ties to Toyota and NBA)
SD: Sandford Harmony’s education program by T. Denny Sandford. (also ties to global credit)
RI: Providence Equity Partners (ties to Jonathan Nelson and for-profit Education Management)
SC: InterTech Corp (ties to Anita Zucker and her heavy Charleston Chamber of Commerce activity)
PA: Campbell’s Soups (ties to Amery alice D. Malone, global food markets)
OH: Victoria’s Secret and others (ties to Les Wexner and family; especially the Columbus Partnership’s grasp on the economy)
IL: Citadel Hedge Fund (ties to Ken Griffin, global trade)
HI: Ebay/PayPal (ties to Pierre Omidyan and his Network)
MO: Stanley Kronenke (ties to NFL/UK Soccer and Wal-Mart)
AZ: Discount Tire Co. (ties to Bruce Halle and his Halle Foundation’s focus on higher education)
TN: Hospital Corp. of America (ties to Thomas Frist and family; global and political connections)
NJ: Advance Publications (ties to Donald Newhouse and connects to Time-Warner Cable. T-W was recently re-branded as Spectrum. T-W is also in the CCSS Machine.)
CO: DISH Network (ties to Charles Ergen and LightSquared)
MA: Fidelity Mutual Funds (ties to Abigail Johnson and global trade)
CT: Bridgewater Associates Hedge Funds/Dalio Foundation (ties to Ray Dalio). Dalio pumps big bucks into CT’s public education as well as participates in global grant giving.
WY: Mars, Inc (think Mars Candy/Pedigree pet food, etc.) ties to the Mars Family. I published an article about their association with the Sustainability/STEM/CCSS goals.
NV: Sands Casino (ties to the owner, Sheldon Adelson who is said to bankroll the GOP)
*Given that CCSS is NOT a one-political party issue, we should bear in mind our Congress is GOP majority.
TX and AR: Wal-Mart (ties to the remaining Walton family members). Wal-Mart openly has backed the CCSS Machine for years.

 

As we’ve learned, these educrats and reformers have been stragetically placed in each and every State in America. IF you didn’t see the State you live in, do not assume it is without it’s ties. They ARE there.

We also know they reach beyond our borders and encompass the globe. After all, the CCSS goal is united to the UNESCO’s design for “Education for All”.  Resource for EfA Goals.

Related: Also, back in 2016, I layed out the “Pied Pipers” in our States.  A chilling Forbes article was also featured in my research. If you missed it, I urge you to read it.

 

2017’s Global Richest:

For consistency, I’ll stick with Forbes’ list here. Among the global ‘leaders’, Warriors, you’ll find Buffet, Koch, Gates, and Zuckerburg (with others) from the USA. But, you’ll see Australia, China, Vietnam, and many other nations. As we know, some are easy to connect to the global education reform. Others, will not be as evident. However, look at what makes their big bucks. Digitally based trading means data mining. Manufacturing means jobs/economy. You can easily trace money trails, as we’ve learned by the phrase ‘follow the money’.
*Note: back in 2014 Education Dive published an article discussing how these mega-buck-laden-people were shaping education. Was it USA specific? Or, even then, were the global roots showing? You decide.

SEL Will Combine HARD and SMART:

Warriors, by now, we should recognize another global shift in education, SEL (Social Emotional Learning). It’s ripe in Common Core, it’s increasing in content, largely due to ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) becoming law, AND it isn’t going away. SEL is also deeply rooted in the UNESCO’s Sustainability Development Goals and in the USA’s SCANS Report (1990s). Look below:

sdscans


Closing:

Warriors, I hope you’ll join me in the next article where I’ll pick up the trail connecting SEL to SMART Goals and HARD Goals. It’s quite a revealing piece.

For now, take what you’ve learned from here. Look deeply in your State’s coffers. Are any of these CCSS Machine players there? If so, expose it!! If you have any anti CCSS/fed ed, or Public Private Partnership information connecting any of these people/groups, please share it here, if you like. We have everything to gain in protecting our students when we cut the purse strings.

 

Ed/Workforce’s Dirty Laundry?!

Hello, my Anti Fed Ed/CCSS Warriors! As you know, I’ve dedicated years to researching just how deep the roots to the shift in American education to workforce training are.

Today’s article will give you a rundown which is sure to help your War vs the Core in your State.

Why you need such a rundown of items is simple. The CCSS Machine’s rhetoric will somewhat slow down during the summer months. A perfect opportunity for us to make some moves of our own. No battle is won without specific preparation.

D.C.’s Dirty Laundry:

So far, during the current Congressional session, there are PLENTY of ‘dirty’ education/workforce bills in the making. Using the Congress.gov website (where you can easily look up bills), there are 733 Workforce bills for the 2017 session.

Since we know what happens in D.C. travels to each of the 50 States, we know what to look for at our General Assemblies, State Congresses, etc. Much like the proverbial red towel left in the load of white sheets, the goal of the CCSS Machine is simple, make all education ‘pink’ (ie: workforce training, not academic-minded). As we also, know, once dyed pink, sheets do not return to their former color easily, if at all.

Below are only a few of the ‘dirty’ bills:

S268, Investing in Student Success Act of 2017 (Senator Young from IN is the main sponsor).
Sounds not so ‘dirty’ right? I mean who doesn’t want to invest in their child’s post-secondary education?! Ah, but Warriors, the ‘dirt’ is that your student and someone not related to you invests in their education via an ISA (Income Share Agreement).

S268
Some hidden ‘dirt’ for S268 is that this FEDERAL bill goes above any existing State law about investment agreements! Targeted group for S268? Low-income students.

HR1837, The 21st Century Energy Workforce Act (Representative Norcross from NJ is the main sponsor)
This bill points out that energy in the United States is the 3rd largest industry. As such, it needs more skilled workers than other industries.
The ‘hidden dirt’ to this bill? Using community colleges for the uniting of all educational choices for STEM/CTE aligned Common Core workforce educated students. (*Note: STEM is short for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math; CTE is short for Career Technical Education. Both are tied to Common Core and have been for years.)

The embedded ‘pink’ stain to this bill? The Secretary of Energy will be in charge of grants for creating apprenticeships to carry all this alignment out. This will, of course, involve the U.S. Dept. of Labor, and the U.S. Dept. of Education.
This HR1837, also establishes a National Center for Excellence for the  21st Century Workforce Advisory Board.(see pages 3 and 4)

HR1837

Warriors, notice the ‘pipeline’ begins in elementary school!
*************************************************************************************

A Former ‘Stain’ Which Will Not Wash Out:

Our Senate, over the past 2 Congressional sessions, has tried to get a bill to support a National Workforce Board. See below from Sen. Cantwell’s (WA):

S1304
S1304, was last introduced during the 2015-2016 Session by Sen. Cantwell. If you read the 9 pages, it is very similar in several instances to the HR 1837 language. Talk about ‘dirty laundry’….
*****************************************************************

New Wash Load, Same Old Dirt:

During THIS Congressional Session (2017-2018) The Senate’s 21st Century Energy Workforce Act is mainly sponsored by Sen. Heinrich, NM. It is S895.

S895’s title is officially “Energy Workforce for the 21st Century Act of 2017”. This bill specifies an increase in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) especially for low-income students of ALL ages (like the House’s bill, this one will begin in elementary schools and go all the way to the workforce). This bill also specifies WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act’s) definition of ‘education’..just like ESSA did.

S895 will have not only the Secretary of Energy creating education collaborations, but awarding all kinds of incentives to them.

S895

Warriors, if you missed my article from earlier this year about how the major Cabinet agencies all have CTE/STEM plans to streamline education to workforce skills, I urge you to access that information here. It is absolutely key to what we see Congress plotting NOW.

Also, take into consideration that the Federal Budget has millions of taxpayer funds earmarked for job creation. On Page 2 of the 2018 Federal Budget, energy development is at the top of the continued priority list. Education is last. On Page 8, funding/discussion for American jobs is highlighted.

Back in March 2017, when the Blueprint for the Federal Budget was released, I shared with you just how the education/workforce stream of money was being kept alive, in spite of all the noise about reining in the federal overreach into education.
Here is that article. (*Note: be sure to access my special 5 page guide to see just how the Cabinet level agenices are involved. It will help in understanding the Congressional bills we are exposing in this article.)

Continuing the Spin Cycle:

S1186 is sponsored by several Senators from across the nation. Leading them is Sen. Baldwin from WI. This bill, the Domestic Maritime Centers of Excellence Act of 2017, would have the Secretary of Transportation select existing community colleges (and technical schools) for an increase in educated workforce training. This Secretary’s assistance also includes funding, use of federal resources, AND, create new career pathways!

S628, Educating Tomorrow’s Workforce Act of  2017 is mainly sponsored by Sen. Kaine of VA. While it’s been rumored VA never had Common Core, it’s been researched and proven VA has Common Core’s ‘adult version’ of education, CTE (Career Tech Education). This bill should be an absolute dead ringer for exposing the shift in education. Why? See below:

S628

Closing:

Warriors, as you can see, these are just a few of the over 700 bills Congress has created in the name of job creation, education, workforce skills, and more. The bottom line, however, is 100% alignment to WIOA via ESSA. HEA (Higher Education Act) is also to be included. Career Pathways, STEM, and so much more connects every one of these existing laws and proposed bills. Will every one of these bills survive? No, but even if ONE of them succeeds, look at the agenda it embeds, not only federally, but LOCALLY.
The ‘stain’ of CCSS Machine reform is becoming permanently marked on America.

 

Human capital concept in tag cloud
Is this what we will continue to allow Congress to see when it comes to our children?!

 

Partnering Up!

There’s no doubt about life, Warriors; some partnerships make a lot of sense. Some partnerships are fantastic and help us out greatly. Then, as we’ve seen through our War Vs. the Core, some partnerships belong in Hell.

As you were able to find out in my last article, the partnerships made to align American education to anything which resembles a more traditionally academic or patriotic one, happened long ago.

For today’s article, we’ll look at how the partnerships made among our leaders in DC and elsewhere are just as Hell-bound as the others.

Sen. Hatch’s Partnership:

Back in March 2017, the Oregon Senator’s press release stated he’d joined forces with Senator Bennet from Colorado to create ‘critical’ CTE (Career Technical Education) legislation. They are sponsoring the Innovation for Tomorrow’s Workforce Act  The number is S790. It is to accompany this existing Workforce Advance Act, S795. (*Note: S795 has replaced last Congressional Session’s  S3271, by the same name).

From my research into CTE, the only ‘critical’ legislation needed is a repeal of what exists to divorce workforce training from academic education. Why? CTE is, as you know, a direct form of Common Core. As I call it, it’s the ‘adult version’. It’s only purpose is to streamline education into workforce training.

So, what’s the ‘critical’ need for CTE as seen by these partners?
In a few words: by increasing the technology uses in and for CTE, you improve the ‘quality’ of what is learned and taught.

How will all this technology ‘improve’ education?
*Bring in more apprenticeships. work-based programs, and CBE (competency based education) all of which are also CCSS, STEM, and, CTE aligned.

*Easily transfer massive data points on students from one educational institution to the next (this doesn’t include all the third parties involved in the data pool)

*Increase the involvement of more businesses in the classroom; thereby changing academics to workforce based industry needs (which ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act, has so handily already mandated)

*Have the Secretary of Education (DeVos) decide the funding streams for CTE (largest money trail from federal level to each State level via Perkins Funding). Where it goes and to whom it goes to. (expect favortism via locations and public-private partnerships)

*Embeds Sen. Hatch’s ‘favorite’ tool: The ‘pay for success’ business model applied to education (it’s been a disaster before now, it will only get worse)
*****************************************************
*Before we move on, when we see these types of Congressional partnerships, let’s bear in mind that many have special interest groups in common. Take for example, the resource which tracked all the ‘yes’ votes and ‘no’ votes on the passage of ESSA per special interest campaign donations. Over 100 special interest groups ‘incentivized’ Congress on how to vote. Find that information here.

Then consider this: what Congress did with ESSA, they will do again, when it it time to re-authorize the HEA (Higher Education Act).
******************************************************

The Warren Partnership:

In the current Congress, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and 3 others have taken former legislation of a few Senators/Reprensentatives’ data mining bill and ‘improved’ upon it. We’ll get back to this one in a few minutes, but first, a bit of background.

In previous Congress sessions, Sen. Marco Rubio had teamed up several others to create a ‘Know Before You Go’ bill. In 2013, the Senators/Reps. partnering together were Marco Rubio, Ron Wyden, Mark Warner, Duncan Hunter, and Robert Andrews. In 2015, it was simply Rubio, Warner, and Wyden.

The purpose of the bill sounds fine, having access to facts about a college or school before you attend. I mean, who wouldn’t like help in making a decision about education?

HOWEVER, add in what our fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors, Jane Robbins and Emmett McGroarty published about the unspoken federal education and data mining capabilities, that is a HUGE red flag for us.

If you recall, it’s been in previous articles that other Anti Fed Ed Warriors (myself included) have warned about the purposed uniting of student data (all ages, all educational backgrounds) via the SLDS and the WQDI (Student Longitudinal Data System and the Workforce Quality Data Initiative).

So, what has Sen. Warren done with this type of legislation?
According to her Press Release, she’s partnered with 3 other Senators (Hatch, Cassidy, and Whitehouse).
The name of the bill is the College Transparency Act.
The telling sign that this partnership is connected to the CCSS Machine? The involvement of Third Way and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
It’s important to note that Sen. Warren is not the lead sponsor for S1121, but she does appear to have the most information on it.

The House of Representatives also has a College Transparency Act Bill (HR2434). How many partners there? Eight in all. Reps Paul Mitchell (main sponsor), Jared Polis, Thomas Garrett, Raja Krishnamoorthi, Steve Stivers, Jimmy Panetta, Neal Dunn, and Fred Upton.
Like the Senate version, some of the same dangers Robbins/McGroarty have published, are in the House’s version, too.

If you wish to see the government’s Digital Play Book for data/technology use (as mentioned in HR2434), find it here.

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

Let’s face it, Warriors, I’ve shown you before how devoted to CTE our Congress members are!
If they truly listened to us and honored the Constitution, they would need
to repeal WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014/STEM Act of 2015 (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)/ HEA’s (Higher Education Act) funding streams continuing/ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act)/The WIOA Technical Amendments/the American Apprenticeship Initiative, and anything legislatively binding us to CTE!
********************************************************************

Partnering Up For Your Little Ones:

HR 2590 (Computer Science for All Act) by Rep. Lee. According to her Press Release,
Computer Science should start in PreK or preschool. It’s streamlined track ends at 12th grade. (*Here’s my Jan. 2017 article on the “Computer Science for All” push by Scholastic, Inc. and others.)

Other CCSS Machine alignment clues from the Press Release
*those 21st Century jobs/skills for a greater economy, especially in STEAM fields (STEAM is short for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math)
*the backing of leading STEM organizations (STEM is short for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
*uses OECD data/influence as justification for the need to target women and minorities
*uses at least $250 million in taxpayer money
(While the text of the newer version isn’t available, be sure to access its former version below. See what’s being done in the ‘name’ of student success.
That Act was HR 6095. It was also Rep. Lee’s bill. During THAT Session, these Representatives partnered together with Lee:
Eddie B Johnson, GK Butterfield, Judy Chu, Jared Polis, Susan DelBene, Ruben Hinojosa, Dina Titus, Robin Kelly, Michael Honda, Katherine Clark, and Marcia Fudge.)

Closing:

Warriors, these are by far, NOT the only Congressional partnerships being used to further the intrusion of WIOA, HEA, ESSA, the STEM Act, Apprenticeships, and everything which connects them into our lives.

These types of partnerships are NOT exclusive among Congress members. As we’ve seen, outside influences are involved.

So, on the federal level, we see alignment all around us. Warriors, it’s on the State levels, too! ESSA will force these partnerships in your communities as well.

Think of it this way: you have the information from the top, you know the system. It flows downward. Get this type of information to your State and local levels before there’s time for the grasp of the CCSS Machine to continue grinding us down. While we are playing catch up on some battles in the War Vs the Core, we CAN surge ahead in areas like these WHEN we use the power of information! Warriors, these Bills (above) haven’t been made law. THEY CAN BE STOPPED!

If you stop and look, almost everything in education/workforce is lined up to meet the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). With legislative partners like we see above are in action, they bring us ever closer to what you see below.

Let us no longer turn a blind eye, or, a deaf ear to this situation. For, if we do, this very well may be the only type of ‘class photo’ we’ll see from now on.
