Warriors, we know sometimes we all need help from those we’ve come to count on. Especially in the War vs the Core.
Today, I’d like to highlight some of my Warrior/Friends efforts to help ALL of us across the nation. Why? A boost during the summer months is needed to keep us sharp and focused.
We’re hearing how some States think CCSS (Common Core State Standards) are gone, or that the leaders in our States declare the Standards ‘dead’.
Heck, we’ve even heard the U.S. Secretary of Education try to pacify us with how ‘dead’Common Core is.
Warriors, we KNOW CCSS lives on in the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). CCSS didn’t go away, it expanded!
To help us stay strong, sign the anti Fed Ed/Labor merger. We’ve only got until the 24th of July to reach 100,000 signatures!
We, the Warriors, know the merger will expand CCSS’s workforce education, not shrink it.
Participate in the upcoming call (free) where you’ll get information on the P3s (Public Private Partnerships) and their “Pay for Success” schemes for education and some other really timely information. (*Note, there are two date choices, the first is July 19th; the second is in December 2018.)
Summer’s no time to slack off our watchdog stance when it comes to education. Thanks for being who you are WHERE you are!
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have you ever looked at your children and told them that one day they would grow up and go work for ‘The Man’? Have you ever looked in the mirror and told yourself, ‘Gee, I’m glad I have to earn money for my boss today.”?
Certainly not! What I imagine you’ve told them is the same thing you were told, ‘Go to school, get good grades and then see where life takes you’. For some of us, it was straight to work. Others left and went on to college. Some folks elected to do both, while others took a break and ‘found themselves’ before ‘getting on track’.
Warriors, these were all prerogatives for us. We had some choices, but they were OUR choices. In today’s educratic system, NO ONE has a true prerogative anymore. Some test tells Johnny and/or Suzy what they must complete in school now to work somewhere else later. By the time the kids are in middle school, they already know where their future income is coming from.
For us as grownups? Our future’s just as aligned. We’re told we must update our ‘credentials’ via courses. We’re constantly monitored for ‘quality control’.
Every single education/job move we make isn’t so much about our U.S. Constitutionally guaranteed right to ‘pursue happiness’, it’s about checking off the boxes on a pre-determined list of where we’ll fit in best when it comes to the CCSS Machine.
This type of conformity appears to be the true goal of the merger between the U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Labor. However, the conformity doesn’t END there.
We, the Anti Fed Ed Warriors, owe a huge debt of gratitude to a fierce Warrior, Karen Bracken. She created a‘short and sweet’ petitionto protest the planned merger. It wasreleased Sunday, June 24th. As of today, June 27th, the petition has just over 1,000 signatures. Not only did I sign the petition, I’ve joined her in getting the word out as much as humanly possible. While 1,000 citizens speaking up is great, we’ve got to have 100,000 JUST to be recognized by the White House.
Warriors, if we don’t speak LOUDLY, we cannot have a seat at the table to help STOP the merger!! The CCSS Machine cannot be allowed to continue this cycle of robbing our children (and ourselves) of our prerogatives as Americans!
The framework to realign our federal government has a plethora of ways to continue the overreach into our lives. How? The biggest ‘change agent’ on the planet is education. (The source for THAT‘sentiment’? The United Nations)
From what I found and can easily tie back to the CCSS Machine, the framework supporting the President’s Executive Order #13781has close to 20 ways in which education is woven throughout. How?? Jobs and economy. My top 3 (based on research) are below:
Many of the other ways in which the framework supports MORE educratic overreach surfaced back in 2017. When I researched and wrote thatarticle, it was to detail the many federal departments with plans to align education to workforce, NOT simply Education and Labor! The framework for the President’s restructure has some of these same agencies shifting. The danger is simply this:
With existing alignment plans in place, how many will survive the moves to their ‘new homes’??? How many will be strengthened? How many will continue the ‘student data rape’ between the SLDS (Student Longitudinal Data System) and the WQDI (Workforce Quality Data Initiative? Will any of these aligned plans DIE in the moves?
Warriors Speaking Out:
Recently, I made several posts and a few FB live videos to raise the truth about HOWthis type of overreach is playing out. (*Note: my live feeds aren’t professionally created. They are from my heart and passion about helping inform you with TRUTH. Yes, I make mistakes in them. The bottom line is not my popularity, it IS our nation. It IS our children. It IS about us. It IS my duty as an American to stand up and SPEAK OUT!)
There are others speaking out about the fallacy of the merger. The most recent is from my friends and fellow WarriorsatFreedom Project Media. My Warrior friend Nicholas Tampio hasthisto say. If you represent a group and wish to sign a letter directed to the President, go here. Nancy Bailey’s article protesting the merger shows how corporations ‘win’ while our kids suffer. Cheri Kiesecker’s written a scathing look at the merger for Missouri Education Watchdog.
We know Congress is acting like animals in heat over CTE (Career Tech Education) . They’re foaming at the mouth telling the nation how desperately we all need MORECTE in our lives. Below, is what fellow Warrior, Dr. Victoria Young posted on Facebook. (added emphasis is mine)
To see the 2017 article, that’s here. To see the May 2018, go here.
The brutal honest truth is this: CTE is Common Core Workforce Training.
If you think the Ed/Labor merger will ‘bring back vocational schools’ like you may remember them to be, the merger won’t. I’ve shown you through years of research how ‘vocational schools’ were re-branded TOCareer Tech Education. It was when Common Core’s alignment AND standardswere inserted. The merger WILL only INCREASE the amounts of workforce aligned education FOR everyAMERICAN. Not just public K-12th grade students. If you think private education, homeschooling, on-line schooling are exempt, I urge you to realize that BOTH education AND labor will cover preK to grave for every American.
American education has been creating ‘new levels of mediocrity’ since the U. S. Ed Dept was created. The merger will create an even newer level of conformity with workforce training taking the place of academics.
The merger will do exactly what I’ve warned you before: scatter education programs like cockroaches all over DC. As hard as it would be to close U.S. Dept. of Ed and U.S. Dept. of Labor, RIGHT now, merging will bury ALL the overreaches so we may NEVER be free of federal overreaches!!The best plan, is REPEAL ESSA first, Restore FERPA, THEN begin to close the illegally based departments DOWN!
DC is convinced that ALL education is workforce development, therefore all education must be aligned. Forget Johnny’s or Suzy’s ability to think freely or read well. Forget your ability to be able to pursue your own happiness. The goal is conformity for economic gain.
Warriors, don’t let another minute pass..go to the petition page, sign, confirm, and share!! A whopping 84% of Americans opposed Common Core and the federal overreach. Where are you now?! Don’t let your child’s prerogatives die at the hands of Congress. Don’t allow your freedoms to be sacrificed at the corporate altar.
To you, my Anti Fed Ed Warriors, recently I released a short video on Facebook Livegoing over the education documentary “Resilience: The Biology of Stress; The Science of Hope”.
Let me point out that when I made that video, I had only seen the movie hours before and was still trying to process it all.
I thank you all who’ve provided feedback. Most has been positive.
Some Warriors, have even taken up the challenge about finding more and shared their resources with me.
I’ve been asked to write up a summary about the CCSS Machine backed documentary. I’ll also be making another Facebook Live follow up video with the questions I’ve been asked and give you answers.
I want to start with pointing out the word play being used against us, first, Warriors. “Resilience”, in the CCSS Machine context is distorted. What you see below is the final moments of a video on Twitter. It’s for small children!
Warriors, I’m using my personal notes and directly relating other information. Some of the information was in the film, some not. Either way, USE this to be asking questions at your school.
Word Games Which Aren’t Funny:
1) The use of the word ‘resilience’ all through the handouts and documentary is a play on the citizen’s mind. If you look at the Merriam Webster definition of ‘resilience’ you’ll find a) capacity to recover quickly from difficulties, b) toughness, c) ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; d) elasticity.
Warriors, where do you see ‘grit’? It’s NOT there, yet the CCSS Machine, repeatedly has united it to ‘resilience’! Does Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary define ‘grit’ like this?
No, in fact the 4th definition of ‘grit’ is the only one which could be applied to humans!
“Grit” has also been united with ‘perseverance’ and ‘tenacity’. (As in the 2013, U.S. Department of Education publication. By the way, Pearson Publishing (2017) still uses that as a resource for higher education. The best way for grit or any of the CCSS Machine labels used in conjunction to reach our students (at all ages) is the ‘blended learning’, the technology, and the constant mind conditioning of SEL (Social Emotional Learning).
a) Angela Duckworth’s work in “Grit” was the base for this UK (United Kingdom) 2015 “Sorting Out Resilience, Perseverance and Grit” by Building Learning Power article.
b) The Chopra Center calls ‘Resilience and Grit’ the two ‘skills which must be practiced’. According to this article, you can even build ‘resilience’ in children who are not NATURALLY inclined to be that way. The key? Competency! (As in CBE, competency based education. Every Student Succeeds Act, ESSA’sFULL of this!)
c) Edutopia’s (George Lucas group) 2014 You Tube video where ‘Teaching Grit’ is shown as good. (*Note: from the child featured, this was once known as chores.) You’ll also see from Edutopia’s blog that resilience is equal to grit.
d) Positive Psychology Program: 5 Ways to Develop Growth Mindset Using Grit and Resilience cites Duckworth. This program is geared for adults and is science based.(*Note: Duckworth is tagged at least 30 times in the 2013 “Grit” form US Ed. as a source.)
The Study Which Created This Monster:
2) The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and Kaiser Permanente teamed up, back in 1990s to begin a study. According to the CDC website, the study is housed in their “Violence Prevention” Page. So from then to now, the shift has been made from preventing violence to massive amounts of grit and resilience (not to mention tons of SEL) being inserted in our schools. From my notes during the presentation: Schools need to intervene for students and teachers in entire process of toxic stress because 85 % have no access to these types of services anywhere else. (Cited not able to use parents insurance or find in their communities) Toxic stress is most often found in the homeless and poor, so we must end poverty (UN Sustainable Development Goal#1). Warriors, if you’d like to see how our resilience fits into the SDGs, look at this from New Jersey:
The CDC/Kaiser research goes on to this day, according to the documentary. Supposedly the ‘method behind the madness’ is reduce or eliminate ACE in Americans and you can leverage their performance and well-being. As one of the doctors who championed this Study put it, discovering lifelong stress was the ‘biggest public health discovery’ can be helpful, but it’s the 21st Century biology which is ‘new’ and will be tremendous. According to the documentary, toxic stress is ACE in action.
One Stanford University doctor put it this way, one symptom of ‘toxic stress’ is having no safe relationship where you feel protected. We, as a nation are so consumed with self. We are still using the outdated concept that ‘pulling yourself up by your bootstraps’ works. Kids can’t do this. Kids can only have ‘resilience’ when there are stable, caring adults in their lives who can ‘grow’ it in them. Life outcomes MUST transform adults. How do we do this? Start young and invest in them as ‘human capital’.
During the documentary, the ACEs are being used as a tool to re-define the ‘what’s wrong with you’? question to ‘what can we do about it?’ One person put it this way, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink, BUT you sure can make him thirsty!
A huge component to all this resilience building involves the entire community. (Does THAT sound familiar?) One of the resources connected to the documentary (The Trauma Institute) has an entire presentation on expanding mental health services community wide, by resilience.
Featured in the film, using the ACE assessment on the family as a whole. That way, not only will the family members become resilient, their students can, too.
The CCSS Makeover deception is ALL kids must be resilience AND grit filled as soon as they are born. This is impossible unless you manipulate them from the start. Which is EXACTLY what the SEL (Social Emotional Learning) does!
Look below to see an Australian version of the resilience. Then notice what it ties to:
Why would I use an Australian version? Because it’s basically the same version the CCSS Machine is using via their ed documentary ‘research’! However, we must realize, this version is for ADULTS, not young children!!
We also need to realize that we know the CCSS Machine, as well as the documentary, view our students as ‘human capital’ or ‘talent pipeline supply’. Look at the underlined words above. Then, factor in how ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) also united workforce and education. Factor in the vast amount of SEL, ESSA contains, too.
Warriors, the filmmakers for Resilience have the bucks (aka: dollars). They also have the connections. As you can guess the two have been combined to create a 90 minute in-our-faces-social-emotional-learning-push.
However, that push isn’t reserved for the public school kids. It’s a push for a UNIVERSAL screening for FAMILIES.
Let’s not forget that due to ESSA’s mandates, SEL and a money trail are combined.
Oh, and Kaiser Permanente? Their goldmine? Health insurance is only part of their racket in this. KP is a global giant of a company.
Listen to their definition of ‘total health’.
Then compare it to the total health from another global health insurance giant, AXA.
Warriors, ‘total health’ to these businesses includes ‘whole body’. So applying this to the ‘whole child’ is a necessary step! As we know, the ‘whole child’ concept for education at the hands of the CCSS Machine has been made over into a system to conform them, not educate them! Because insurance companies insure your health, you know they also are involved in Medicare, Medicaid, Health Care Reform, and other related policy making ways. Ways in which it impacts our schools directly!
Rockefeller Foundation is also part of the Resilience movement. Their funding includes “Resilient Cities”. To see the Center for Youth Wellness, go here.
Other dollars for the Resilience movement will be found in these groups, too. Warriors, don’t forget that ‘new’ biology of the 21st Century will include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math). With STEM will be biometrics, too. Biometrics harvests personal data directly from your body.
Warriors, there is so much more which is tied to all this. The resources you are sharing are coming at me in a break neck speed fashion.
Just a couple of days ago, the White Houseunleashed its grab for SEL on our kids via the First Lady’s Initiative, “Be Best”. How will this involve SEL and education? Sec. DeVos was at Mrs. Trump’s side the day this was announced. So was the U.S. Sec. of Health and Human Services. (That’s where you’ll find SAMHSA, seen above.) SAMHSA is short for Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, Anti Global Ed Warriors, and concerned Americans everywhere:
You’ve seen massive amounts of research exposing the continued push to have American education become the United Nations’ (UN) education. The main way this has been accomplished so far (and will increase in use) is STEM/STEAM/STREAM.
No matter how many letters are added to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), it is ALL directly from the United Nations and their SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). If you have a family member, friend, associate, or neighbor who needs to see the many connections proving this, I’m embedding a general link to all my articles on STEM/STEAM/STREAM. (*Note: there are several pages of articles, so take some time to scroll through them to find exactly what may be needed.)
Before we look at the ups and downs of this research, take a look at how you and I should ‘stack up’ as global citizens:
(You can open the image in a new tab to see it bigger if needed. You may also use the zoom feature on your computer’s tool bar.)
Warriors, to have an image like this, we need to understand experiments were conducted with students to gather the data to create a visual result!
Where were the experiments based out of? Boise State University in Boise, Idaho.
How connected to the UN is Boise State University? Very! Model UN Assemblies are the tip of the global iceberg. BSU is also a member of the AASCU (American Association of State Colleges and Universities) which is a UN Partner in Education.
If you’d like to see other BSUSTEM related research, go here.
BSU, like many universities and colleges, has international partners for exchange programs/students. (*Note: when you access the embedded link ‘member’ look on Page 7 for the mention of KY’s “Core” Standards for PreK to 12th data mining.)
Below, is a screen shot from BSU’s Institute for STEM.
The 2015 Report’s Language:
Page 1: STEM will ‘offer tremendous opportunities’ for solving global poverty and improving health care. Warriors, STEM certainly will because STEM is the way the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) are carried out in education! SDG #1 is “No Poverty”, SDG# 3 is “Good Health and Well Being”. Look below to see what else Page 1 stated:
You’ll also see (on Page 1) P3s (public private partnerships) are stressing we need to become global. Especially the P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills), which is most definitely a CCSS Machine member group.
Page 2: Reveals it’s imperative we educate students for globalization. Why? They can better understand the world. If they understand the world, they can fix the world’s problems. From Page 2 into Page 3, why health care needs to become STEM oriented. (It already is via the Career Clusters from Common Core.) (*Note” the embedded short video you’ll find when you click on “Career Clusters” is from TX, where the State supposedly didn’t have Common Core. However, TX had Common Core in the form of CTE, Career Tech Education and STEM.)
Page 3: Global citizens can better economics for everyone, especially when they can ‘leverage collective assets’. You’ll find IPSL (International Partnership for Service Learning) also on Page 3. IPSL is a B Corporation (social benefit). B Corporations are usually big on social justice. Social justice is a huge component of the UN’s SDGs.
Many B Corporations are CCSS Machine members, too. (*Note: as an example, look at EFP (Education Funding Partners) ) Back in 2016, I exposed the AltSchool’s B Corporation status. Part of AltSchool’s classroom‘setup’? Willy nilly style.
Page 4: the Global 360 Education Model is rigorous, progressive for real world problem solving. (Doesn’t this just sound like recycled pitches for Common Core?!)
Oh, also let’s not forget to overlook the ‘competency’ involved. You’ll see that on Page 4 as well.
Page 5: Global citizens should have ‘open minds’ especially while ‘actively seeking’. I guess the truth about having such an open mind leading to danger is lost in the CCSS Machine’s translation. “Preparing NextGen Leaders” also needs open minds full of STEM skills.
Included on Page 5 of BSU’s research is the fact that in 2012, they partnered with Peacework. Peacework is a non profit global organization in full support of innovation (aka technology) and the SDGs. This non profit is based in VA and is 25 years old. (Be sure to see which educational and corporate groups are helping align Peacework to the CCSS Machine.
You will also see the Global Competency Aptitude Assessment is on Page 5 as well. (*Note: the Global Competency Aptitude Assessment has a sister site for Global Competency Consulting. GCAA will be happy to help you can become a certified Globally Competent Practitioner.) The Consulting group’s goal is to prepare the global workforce.
Warriors, here’s an excerpt from Page 5 about STEM and health-care, ” Within the context of STEM and health-science education, global competencies must include sensitivities to the social, cultural, political, ethical, and moral impacts of science, technology, and health-science and/or engineering-based global solutions (Conway, 2000; Currier, 2009; MBugua, 2010).”
Let that sink in for a moment. Who gets to decide which ‘sensitivities’ to include? Who gets to decide if these ‘sensitivities’ are in agreement with those being taught. As our government gets more and more STEM in our lives, we’ll see more legislation (like some I’ve recently shown you) where the families will have to kowtow to the government assigned health imperatives. (*Note: when you click on ‘you’, scroll down to the Mental Health in Schools Act section.)
(The article where you’ll find the screen shot above.)
Pages 6-7 will detail how the learning process will shift to create global citizens. Four tools are used. Constructivism (where ‘critical thinking’ is inserted); interdisciplinary learning (where group projects are inserted); transformational leaders (where facilitating is used in place of teaching); and, international service-learning (think glorified indentured servitude). Helping put all this into action? International partnerships.
Pages 8 through 11 lay out the methods, findings, discussion, and conclusion of the Boise State University study. Be sure to read the comments made by the students.
Since the BSU Study:
Warriors, as far as BSU itself, the global citizen march lives on. Just like it is ramping up in every grade level, college or not. You’ll find global citizen courses for business, too.
Below is just a small sample of what’s out there.
To access the Council for Foreign Relations Report, visit here.
To access the Global Citizen Initiative’s Global Citizen Rights and Responsibilities page, that’s here. Also, here is an archived article I wrote featuring the Initiative’sscorecard on America’s push for global citizenry.
To see the course from Hong Kong, find that here. You’ll also want to click on ‘home’, where you’ll see Common Core in the upper right hand corner.
To see the Global Sourcing Council’s article on adhering to the World Economic Forum’s global citizen definition, that is here.
If you’d like to see the other World Economic Forum resources for defining global citizens, this one is from 2014 and appears to uphold the need to be global to help cut down on the cost of communications. In 2015, the conversation shifted to international ID cards and data tracking needed to ‘help’ global citizens. From March 2018, being global citizens means our ‘trust’ factor will be restored.
Warriors, according to this article ‘trust’ is the most important ‘pro-social’ attitude we can have. Since when did ‘trust’ become an attitude?! Trust, by classical definition is part of your moral character. I guess we can thank the CCSS Machine’s English Language Arts for destroying definitions.
The Shift To Global Ed In America Is Older Than You Realize:
Warriors, from 2016, my in-depth look at “My State in the World” where you’ll see MN, NC, MI, and, other States (as well as their schools) were compromised. This article features many resources from trusted Anti Fed Ed/Global Ed Warriors.
Warriors, while we know this systematic take over of our education and lives continues, we also DO have a choice. Use the information to help others ‘wake up’. Since STEM has even infiltrated EVERY school choice, including home education, we must eliminate it from ALL curriculum, ALL community wide events celebrating it. We CAN teach each of these subjects without the UN’s influence! STEM is NOT your friend, it is NOT America’s savior; STEM is a tool from enemies who do not love freedom.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we know there are continued links between ‘federally led education’ and globally led education. We also know these ties which lie between education and our communities are deeply embedded. To that end, I’m using ‘global, smobal’. The “global” is self defining. The “smobal”? My take on ‘small town gone global’.
The manifestations of these ties are easily found in the UN’s (United Nations’s) SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), as well as the American laws: WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014), ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015), HEA (Higher Education Act, currently being re-written), and any other law which combines any of the above.
Thanks to many Anti Fed Ed Warriors and many other Anti Global Education Warriors, we’ve been able to see what programs are being used to breed so much collectivism. As we know, the UN’s SDGs use education as the single most important ‘change agent’ to infiltrate our towns and cities. (Source for image below)
What do some of the activities look (or sound) like to bring the UN’s desired alignments to fruition? I have a few examples below:
Global, Smobal: Part One:
Warriors, recently I was in Georgia attending to family business. While helping out, I found myself in a doctor’s office where I picked up a local magazine. The magazine was all about the arts and culture of the area. As I was thumbing through the pages, I stumbled upon an article about a county at the opposite end of the State, where the citizens are finding Career Clustersas a great unifier for them.
One of the reasons this particular magazine was featuring the far away county? Since it appears to be such a great success in one rural area of Georgia, it can be an equal success somewhere very similar in another part of Georgia.
See how the local magazine’s writer ‘sold’ the Career Clusters Pathway alignment:
(Source for the article, see page 99 and those immediately following)
To learn about the Georgia county featured, go here. Notice on Page 6, the amount of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) aligned workforce education, as well as those ‘wonderful’ Career Clusters. Note that the County’s schools are charter ones. Notice among the community unifying buildings is a new innovative amphitheater. By sheer coincidence, the area I was visiting had just completed their new amphitheater.
Global Smobal, Part Two:
Also, in the same magazine, another article about a multi state effort to join businesses and education. This effort is geared more for adults than the previous article, where students are the main focus. To find that article, go to page 93 and those immediately following. Below, is a screen shot of one of the pages:
If you’d like to learn about the STEMIE Coalition, (STEMIE stands for ‘Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math linked to Invention and Entrepreneurship’) STEMIE is based in CT with leaders in CA, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, MA, NH, OH, OK, SC, TN, and TX).
It was the AL based Champion Network (link is in the above screen shot) which helped STEMIE Coalition get started. Visit STEMIE.
Warriors, the ‘global smobal’ here that this new type of business and education collaboration is a direct product of STEM. The purpose of the ‘teamwork’? Redefining how communities work.
Below is a screen shot of the early 2000s Tool Kit education-for-sd-tool-kit-fully-highlighted-1.
(*Note: this article is just one where I give you more context for the Tool Kit.)
As we know, STEM is a UN directive contained within the SDGs.The redefining of our communities? That’s straight out of the SDG Tool Kit. How does STEM tie to the Career Clusters? Read the ‘research’ behind STEMIE. The free K-12th grade curriculum for STEMIE? Aligned to the Common Core, Next Generation Science Standards and, is based off the PAST Foundation’s framework for education.
PAST Foundation is based in OH, but is an international group devoted to project based learning combining STEM and anthropology to prepare for 21st Century careers. PAST’s public private partnerships are what make this twist on STEM‘work’. Warriors, as we know, the increase of P3s (public private partnerships) was a mandate of ESSA, the Every Student Succeeds Act.
Global Smobal #3:
April 21st, 2018, my local town newsletter is advertising the Global Youth Service Day. According to the town’s information, this workday is the only one devoted to children (ages 6 to 18). What type of projects will be completed? Local service projects to benefit the collective community.
If you want to see how sold out to the UN’s SDGs the YSA(Youth Servicing America) is, look below:
Warriors, if you access @YouthSDGs (Twitter), you’ll find a tweet where the 17 Sustainable Development Goals reveal 169 targets throughout them. You’ll also find how targeted our youth are to achieve the collectivism of it all.
Remember, these are woven into education across America! Regardless of where you go to school.
More Global, Less Local:
Warriors, look below at this screen shot of the March 2018 ISO Technical Committee for Asset Management Systems Reporton attaining the SDGs through good management of your organization’s assets. For our context, think your city budget and city employees:
As if high-jacking the city budget isn’t bad enough, check out the SDG 2030 Board Game you can use to teach your kids! (*Note: you will be asked to register to download the game, board, dice pattern, and, questions. They will appear on your computer has zip files.)
Warriors, in what other ways are your businesses, towns and schools working together in these types of ways? What about the rural Americans? How are they being encircled? Look around you, my friends!
Warriors, if you haven’t seen the connection of all the UN/SDGs and STEM to your country’s demise at the hands of the CCSS Machine, I hope this article has helped shed some light on the dastardly wicked deceptions going on in education.We are well on our way to being that‘STEM nation with a STEM people for a STEM economy with STEM jobs’for a global good which was inserted in America during the previous administration. Presently, no stopping this global dagger which pierces our hearts has been given by the current administration.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, today’s article is the last in my recent series detailing several federal level education bills.
When I first decided to see what some of the latest bills were, little did I know the phrase I chose would reveal SO much overreach! While I didn’t look at the over 700 results, I did look at the most troublesome.
These last 5 (2 sets of ‘twins’) are, by no means, less troublesome, but for the sake of giving you the absolute best information to fight this War Vs. The Core, I think it’s time for me to move on. We know Congress will continue to churn out egregious legislation, thanks to the CCSS Machine.
HR 1702,Small Business Development Centers Improvement Act of 2017:
When I first shared with you that the SBA (Small Business Administration) had sold out to the CCSS Machine, it was to show the workforce aligned shift in education.
But that wasn’t all, the SBA is a vast supporter of venture capitalism. Warriors, we know the CCSS Machine uses venture capitalist groups to undermine education!
So, how does HR 1702 carry the torch on for our future? While it develops MORE job/business centers, it also amends the SBA Act, and, opens the door for ‘other purposes’. Introduced back in March 2017, this Bill is in the House’s Committee on Small Business.
This Committeerecently conducted a hearing on small businesses and workforce development. Warriors, this is big red flag for federal overreach!
If HR 1702 were to become law, we’d see more business career tracks pop up in education. This will expand CTE (Career Tech Education) via the CCs (Career Clusters).
We’d also see an increase in P3s (public private partnerships) in education. As we know, ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandated that increase.
Because all this activity will happen via grants and awards, expect data mining to increase. A new ‘data collection working group’ will be created, too. This data, once again, will be available to a vast amount of systems without our consent.
RISE (S 1295 and HR 2782):
Warriors, these twins target special needs and students with disabilities as well as amend the HEA (Higher Education Act). RISE stands for “Respond, Innovate, Succeed, and, Empower” Act. Both were introduced in June 2017. Both are in their respective education/labor committees.
ICYMI: My 2016 look at how the CCSS Machine, ESSA, and more continues the overreach of education for those with special needs and disabilities. From 2015, the CCSS/CTEmakeover of IEPs for ‘college and career readiness’.
Lastly for S 1295 and HR 2782: a price tag of $10 million dollars to help expand data collection of our student’s private information.
This has become such a criminal act, it should be called ‘student data rape’. The information is private and personal. It is not being respected. The information is being harvested without proper consent. Yet, there are never any charges against those actively committing this daily. What a terrible way to respect any human, especially those so uniquely created.
HR 2913 and S 1370 (Mental Health in Schools Act):
Warriors, again, two ‘twins’ slam full of CCSS Machine agenda. Link to the House version. This Bill is the House’s Energy and Commerce Committee. A Sub Committee expressly for Health is within the E & C (as it’s called). Why? One of the purposes to the Mental Health Education Act is to amend the current Public Health Law.
Link to the Senate version. This Bill is in the Senate HELP Committee.
Both were introduced in June 2017. Both are still ‘in the wings’. However, given recent school violence, these 2 could be ‘ripe’ for being brought out of Committee and onto the floors of Congress.
Within the opening sentences of each copy you’ll see an increase in funding for Project AWARE. This is a big red flag, Warriors! PA is from the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services.
ESSA gave a massive amount of federal overreach into education via HHSBEFORE the recent attacks. Dare we imagine what impacts education will receive NOW?
Project AWARE has been researched by more than just myself. Long-time anti Fed Ed Warrior, Anita Hoge has spoken out about it. Alice Linahanhasas well.
Mrs. Hoge is considered such an expert due to the fact the State she lives in
(Pennsylvania) was the ‘model state’ for invasive mental health assessments. That began back in the 1990s.
We’ve seen the horrid direction these assessments have taken. Not only are they mental health assessments, they are being used as behavior interventions.
Warriors, ESSA also increased these types of harmful measures with SEL (Social Emotional Learning).
Should either of these ‘twins’ become law, we’ll see an increase in P3s in schools (and available outside of schools, for those who are outside public funded schools). We’ll see and increase in assessments, interventions to correct behavior problems at early ages, increases in those not medically qualified making major health related diagnoses, and, and infrastructure to carry all this out.
Of course, because all this will involve data tracking, more ‘student data rape’ will be carried out. Sadly, however, entire families will find themselves completely micro-managed by a nanny-like federal system.
The biggest take away from this set of twins is simply, the plans for this type of overreach in schools dates back several years. The exact agenda has been tried to be made into law several times before, and has been ‘passed down’.
The image below is from many years ago, yet every bit of this was laid out between the existing federal education laws like ESSA and HEA. WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) also help this wheel exist in 2018.
Warriors, I trust you’ve learned tons in the past few articles featuring the federal proposed legislation. As we’ve seen it’s not only the major laws for federal control which hurt us, it is all these supporting laws and amendments, too. What is our biggest take away? We cannot trust our federal government anymore. Not only is the goal to harm our education system and reform it to a much-lesser-than-version, it seeks to control our families like never before.
Greetings, Anti Fed Ed Warriors. We’re upon the end of January 2018. It seems like our War Vs the Core is reaching new lows.
What do I mean? We’re seeing more and more educational news censorship on Facebook than ever before. We’re seeing Congress continue to pimp out education in the name of national security and transparency. We’re seeing anti CCSS (also anti Fed ed) Warriors, ‘jump ship’ on the matter of what true school choice is AND isn’t. We’re also seeing our elected federal level leadership do absolutely NOTHING to slow down the constant (and egregious) un-constitutional assaults on our fellow citizens.
While all the DC madness is spreading like wildfire, we Warriors, MUST stay diligent. We must be VIGILANT. We need to be firm and confident when standing up and saying “Not on MY watch, you don’t!”
Call it ‘truthful sass’, Warriors.
Some Score Keeping:
While the CCSS Machine’s grinding away globally, have you any clue as to just HOW much co-operation the US is giving the efforts? As we’ve learned over the years, the CCSS Machine is VERY nebulous (which means covering large portions of every aspect in educational alignment goes on all at the same time) AND very well financed. Much of the support is from the UN (United Nations).
The UN has infiltrated our education system on every level, and, in every type of learning via the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). From elementary schools to private universities and everywhere in-between, the SDGs are influencing what is taught, how to think, how to be so collective, you literally lose yourself, and MORE.
Below is a screen shot of the current ‘scores’ on theSDGs. The US is not pointed out, but IS included in these scores, due to our existing membership with the UN.
(*Note: Warriors, while it’s true SOME of our UN ties have been decreased and/or eliminated, the SDGs remain due to the fact our nation is STILL a member of the UN at all.)
UN’s SEL Impact:
The truly sickening part about the SDGs influence in education is that what is carried out in the classrooms and associated projects FEELS like it’s all been up to the school/teachers/students and citizens.
Warriors, much has been in the ‘Anti Fed Ed News’ about SEL lately. (SEL stands for ‘social emotional learning’.) SEL focuses on your mind.
It is being used by the CCSS Machine to warp our students brains. Seriously.
How did this happen? Buried in the SDG Tool Kit (for implementing the SDGs in all aspects of America via ‘education’) are some sinister SEL tactics. The agenda behind this Tool Kit? Have citizens/communities/schools/partnerships think it was THEIR idea to participate/act upon/become collective; not a ‘forced upon you’ mandate. This is blatant manipulation, Warriors.
To access the Tool Kit, go here. To read how Congress and other DC agencies are embracing the SDGs via legislation/programs, go here.
American Education Partners With The UN:
Warriors, hundreds of American schools from little ones to adulthood, are active and willing partners with the UN. A large portion of these partners are found in the higher education institutions. Currently, there are 41 global higher education associations in existence. Look for yourself, how many will involve American public and private colleges, universities, and other types of adult education.
For example, I looked into the AASCU (American Association of State Colleges and Universities), first. Warriors, over 420 nation-wide colleges and universities across all kinds of economic scales devoted to the ’21st century readiness’ of students. The group also influences policy, both in legislation AND education. Much of the SDGs Tool Kit manipulation is carried out via policy.
Then, the AACC (American Association of Community Colleges). I’ve researched this group before and it, most definitely is a CCSS Machine member organization which impact millions of Americans. This group has several commissions within itself. Of these, there’s one for ‘college readiness’; then ‘economic and workforce development’, among other agenda driven titles.
My previous research on BOTH the AACC and the AASCU proved just how sold out to the CCSS Machine both groups are. Again, both of these are UN Academic Partners.
The Score From D.C.:
So, Warriors, not only do we have a global score against us, our own federal government can be counted in as ‘willing’ and ‘able’ participants in the illegally based and backed education reform.
From the U.S. Senate HELP, January 30th’s hearing on re-authorizing the HEA of 1965(Higher Education Act). This 3rd hearing (the 2nd one was last week) will focus on ‘accountability’ and taxpayer risk. Witnesses include:
If you wish to listen in to the Kangaroo Court led by Senator Lamar Alexander (Tennessee), follow thislink(be sure to refresh it for a ‘live’ stream).
From the U.S. House’s Ed and Workforce Committee, a hearing also on January 30th. This one is about FEPA (Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act). FEPA supposedly is a good thing for America…if you listen to the CCSS Machine disciples Reps. Ryan (Wisconsin) and Foxx (North Carolina). However, many Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have exposed how lethal this Act truly is. It would create a nation-wide, trackable data base on not only students, but everyone. Among the witnesses for this hearing, is Jane Robbins. If you missed her warning about FEPA, hereit is. Jane is the only visible anti Fed Ed Warrior on the docket.
Follow thislinkfor the Ed/Workforce hearing. You’ll need to refresh the link, for ‘live’ stream.
Recently introduced is HR 4760, introduced 1/10/18 and currently in several House Committees, including the Education and Workforce Committee. This bill is titled, “Securing America’s Future Act of 2018”. Washington News Daily(WND.com) broke the hidden UN-like police state agenda yesterday (Jan. 28th, 2018).
While WND’s research shows a biometric national I.D. card for every American, my look at HR 4760 shows ‘education’ is woven into the proposed bill 21 times.
Buried in the education language is the Higher Education Act, as well as the GED exam (general equivalency diploma), and, K-12th grade educational institutions!
*Notes of Concern on HR 4760:
1) The GED has been CCSS aligned since Pearson Publishing bought it. “Diploma” has been replaced by ‘credential’. Much of the UN/CCSS Machine reform includes ‘credentials’. Most, at a national level.
2) Warriors, ‘biometrics’ is a tool of the CCSS Machine’s ed reform as well as the SDGs!
3) A national I.D. Card is un-constitutional. It is direct violation of our rights of freedom and privacy. It also will tie right back into FEPA!
Hello, my Anti Fed Ed Warriors! I’m sure you’ve heard of ‘betting on the farm’ (which means you risk everything you have to win a bet or succeed with an investment or organization). I KNOW we’ve seen education bet on in this fashion since the CCSS Machine rolled into the classrooms. If you’re like me, you have fought long and hard to expose the under the table deals; reveal the backroom meetings, and so much more.
Recently, the U.S. Secretary of Education gave a speech where the tone was definitely MORE‘betting on education’ was woven throughout. If you missed my scathing rebuttal to Betsy DeVos, I’ve included it here, for you. Be warned, Warriors, her speech was written to sound like ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is worthy of sainthood.
Warriors, we know the media loves to help sell lies to us these days, especially when it comes to education. If you look only at the headlines surrounding DeVos’s latest speech, you’ll be misguided in the notion that “Common Core is dead” . What the media leaves out is that her passion and poor leadership will send American children of all school choices to one sad conclusion:
Personalized digital learning is the ESSA way and as such, is the ONLY way to learn
Warriors, we’ve seen tons of research which proves ‘personalized learning’ is a farce. The fact it is continually tied to the digital push also proves that the ‘learning’ isn’t really taking in information. No, the digital personalized learning is all a data mining trap toforce your student into a preconceived pigeon hole job.
That DeVos is steering the bets on education and has pointed America to MORECommon Core/Career Tech/College and Career Readiness/STEM proves on thing:
The globalization of education will continue on ‘as is’.
Also, because DeVos’s devotion to digitally connected, personalized education seems so ‘pure’, consider this: she, via family business holdings, can literally profit from the use of digital computer and programs in the classrooms. My article from November 2016 shows where those holdings are.
If you have friends and family who are still convinced DeVos is a great champ for American education, show them the article. DeVos nor Trump have done one thing to rid our nation of Common Core.They’ve done everything to ensure the globalization of our nation’s classrooms continues.
BETT In The U.S. By Way Of The U.K.:
Warriors, I first learned of BETT ( British Educational Training and Technology Show) from an email sent to me by a CCSS Machine group. I was being invited to attend briefing sessions connected to the Conference in London the last weekend of this month (Jan. 2018). Below is a screen shot of the email. The added emphasis is mine.
If you question BETT’s stance on why it is pushing for digital personalized learning, look below:
Other sponsors and partners include Cisco, Dell, and, Microsoft. Underneath every partner or sponsor is how they are tied to BETT. For example, Microsoft is a ‘worldwide partner’. Because digital and technology pushes across the globe involve the UN/UNESCO, you’ll find STEM and STEAM(Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math; Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and, Math) there, too.
Evidence has also proven that these UN led agenda items were inserted into American education as part of the CCSS Machine’s ‘bet’ in education. The payoff? A STEM people for a STEM workforce who live in a STEM nation with a STEM economy for global good.
BETT is all about bringing together the global education community in the hopes of transforming education. With the ties we see above, is it any wonder DeVos is so hell-bent on trying to convince us digital education on a personal level is the ONLY way to go? It makes sense to me.
Make no mistake,Warriors, DeVos will keep placing dangerous bets in education supposedly on our children’s behalf. We KNOW she’s totally unqualified to be in such a powerful position. We MUST continue to keep watch and help dispel the damaging misinformation which is coming at us from ALL angles in D.C. We MUST continue to protest against ANY involvement with the United Nations. It’s not enough to pull funding from specific programs and expect all the ties to the UN will go away. The CCSS Machine, along with the UN have been planning total educational upheaval for many, many years.
Folks like DeVos only make it harder to untangle. Those groups the UN is using, like BETT, certainly uphold transforming education from learning to workforce.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I know many of you will be getting ready for celebrating Thanksgiving, as I will be. However, before we all eat too much, I wanted to leave you with some things to ponder.
You see a question in the article’s title. Look below and you’ll see another one to ponder.
Warriors, as we’ve seen time and time again from the CCSS Machine and its educratic overreaches that modern education is not about the academics, or even the true critical thinking; it’s about confining a student’s life to a predisposed track based on a workforce skills assessment. So imagine my non-surprise when I received an e-mail from the NC DPI (Dept. of Public Instruction)
Warriors, you really should see the rest of the education related compromises. While this IS a NC Legislative Budget supposedly for public education, it crosses the lines into private education and home education by using STEM, CTE, College and Career Promise, and more. In the academic year 2018-19, funds for the Coding Grant Program will double to $800,000.00.
What if you don’t live in NC? Well, Warriors, as we’ve learned from experience, when it’s connected to the CCSS Machine, it will be in ALL the States, Territories, and military bases contained within American power.
Lies From NC:
Warriors, below is a screen shot of an interactive NC DPI Career Pathway map. Here’s the link to the map. Be sure to refresh the page to find out whatever information you’d like most to see.
While NC’s not a PARCC State, I did find this evidence of the International Morse Code inserted into 4th Grade Common Core Standards.
Lumos is located in NJ. It’s also knee-deep in 21st Century skill based learning.
To see what I’ve previously shared (2015) with you about ACT’s Aspire, go here.
To see how Aspire is part of ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandates, go here. Lumos Learning has quite a few resources where they help States with Title One funding, where they are sounding off about Pres. Trump’s impact on education, and more. Lumos Learning is a division of Lumos Information Services, LLC. I found plenty of YouTube videos for Lumos Information Services, LLC. I also tried to locate the CEO, the Board of Directors, and other related information, but very little success was had.
Back to NC’s Coding Grant Program:
Warriors, what you see above is from the NC DPI’s document about the nuts and bolts behind the Coding Grant Program. Also in this document is that fact the entire Program gets off the ground in the Spring of 2018. The ‘winning schools’ will be judged on a 100 point scale as to how aligned their coding programs/partnerships are. Below, is just a portion of the judging (grading):
Warriors, this, of course brings about several questions. 1) What federal funds will these private coding partners receive, if any? 2) What State tax breaks will these coding partners receive? 3) What about any un-funded portions of the coding programs in schools. Will the taxpayers be expected to pick up the tab? 4) What happens if any of these schools are graded as failing?
5) What about the private schools and homeschool students utilizing NC DPI’s Virtual Public School or are involved in any early college/career programs?
1) My article on the National Career Pathways Network.
2) My article from 2015 showing you CAPS from KS is still tied to the Career Pathways.
3) The ALA (American Library Assoc.) is giving $500,000.00 in coding grants. The sponsor? Google.
4) When I searched for ‘National Coding Grants’, the National Endowment of the Humanities surfaced. They sold out to the CCSS Machine long ago. Since the NEH receives federal funding, think about this: coding means technology, innovation, and, computers. Which translates to data. Data needs to be collected and studied. We also know how data collection has turned into a massive nightmare for our freedoms and privacy. We also know that the federal government is making bold steps (no matter how illegally based they are) to create MORE data mining. All this data will need deciphers. How awful it is that our students education will train them for such ill purposes. Sadly, the NEH is not alone when it comes to federally funded grants for coding or anything related.
5) When I searched for ‘STEM Coding Grants’, the first resource which popped up was the U.S. Dept. of Ed’s Office of Innovation and Improvement. Below is the screen shot of the interactive map for all the innovation (will include Race to the Top, and much more) from FY 2009 to FY 2017.
6) To access the “STEM 2026: A Vision” from the U.S. Dept. of Education, visit the highlighted phrase.
What you see is that coding is tied to Google, United Way, and more. You’ll see what student groups are being most targeted for coding.
That brings me to ponder something else. Since ESSA was supposedly going to break down education for equality, why is the federal government working with the CCSS Machine to discriminate against students using education as the weapon?
Warriors, we know Google is hardly the lone aligner in all this coding. We also know that all this coding is meant to confine citizens.
Warriors, as I stated earlier, this is probably not the news you want to mull over during your family time. I do thank each of you for continuing to access my blog. I wish each of you a blessed time together. Look at what is going on in your State when it comes to coding or workforce based regional partners. Find out what is going on in your schools, or if your school is in the living room, look at what extra curricular activities involve anything related to any of the coding, apprenticeships, etc.
Warriors Against the Core, this article will be very short.
I’m in the “Sic ‘Em” mood. I think many of us are. Today, I’m pretty much summing up our findings after all these years fighting the War Vs. the Core.
It’s been said we need to wake up more parents to join us in protecting our kids. I’ll not be presumptuous enough to claim this (what you’ll see below) is “IT”, but it sure can help.
Regardless if you are a Christian or not, everyone is familiar with the Bible’s Ten Commandments. You know the list:
1) God said I brought you out of bondage so, have no other gods before me. 2) Don’t make graven images to worship. 3) No blasphemy. 4) Keep the Sabbath. 5) Honor your parents. 6) No murder. 7) No adultery. 8) No theft. 9) No lies. 10) Don’t covet.
Warriors, stay with me…let’s take these basic commandments (which were actually guidelines to aim for) and apply them to the modern CCSS Machine education reform.
As you know, since I began writing and speaking out, I have referred to all the egregiousness as a ‘machine’. In my Warriormindset, assigning all that is going on as a result of this modern education reform, is much easier to understand.
What you’ll see below is my take of what the unspoken Education Reform Commandments are. Was there ever anything similar written down? Who knows, but it’s what we’ve been living out from the past to today.
Warriors, we must fight on to protect our students and teachers! Please use the picture to help point out to those who are still misinformed.
Speak up, speak out! Don’t simply rely on those who’ve been in this War Vs. the Core for a long time. Work shoulder to shoulder.
We see our federal/state legislation carrying out the Education Reform Commandments, daily. Look at how much of what is happening in these ‘commandments’ for money; not quality of life, but money.
This shift goes way beyond education and is attacking the entire family. It’s a chain reaction. Negatively impact education, and an entire society goes to Hell.
It doesn’t happen overnight, but it does happen. It’s up to us to throw a kink in the CCSS Machine.
