Lustrous Meddling

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have you noticed the increase in what I’ll refer to as ‘lustrous meddling’ from the CCSS Machine? What am I talking about? The CCSS Machine (including the US federal government) into micromanaging our families.

Why ‘lustrous’? To hear anyone connected to the CCSS Machine, you’d think they were saints they way they describe their quest to overreach into your homes. Most of these sell-outs believe they are doing ‘great work’ and therefore must be allowed to continue on in finding ways to undermine parents, control children, and, hold our tax dollars as ‘ransom’.

We MUST stop believing by civil acts of obedience that we’ll win this War Vs the Core.

Why? Warriors, think about it, not one member of your family or mine is free from the overreaches into our personal lives. None of our freedoms are being preserved by our leaders in DC. We MUST de-throne the CCSS Machine…NOW!

Warriors, we’ve seen the gradual increased control in where Johnny and Suzy go to school, what they learn (or don’t), where they work, what they believe, what they accept as decent, and, who’ll they’ll ‘be’.
Nine times out of ten, none of it lines up with what you taught them. This is the ‘success’ of the CCSS Machine’s global platform. To control citizens for THEIR purposes, not our enjoyment in life, especially as a family.

wannabees

Through the years, as an Anti Fed Ed/Global Ed/CCSS Machine Warrior, I’ve shared with you the grasp for ‘lustrous Common Core’ marriages, the ‘lustrous beauty of global citizenship’, if only we’d embrace it, the ‘lustrous glow’ hiding the sick and twisted agendas being carried out in our schools AND communities, and anything else the CCSS Machine has tried to pass off as ‘great’.

Those responsible for the existence and movement of the CCSS Machine won’t stop until it rules us.

We’ve seen our kids turn on us, turn on each other, harm or kill themselves. We’ve seen our health care system totally turned upside down and become inserting in education, where it should NEVER be a part of.

The CCSS Machine has messed with our religious beliefs and practices, it’s attacked our values and attitudes, it’s gone after grandma and grandpa’s way of living (must be a workforce member of society at all ages), and it’s after our babies.

Warriors, there is NOTHING about your children or mine which is held as sacred anymore! So why NOT become civilly disobedience?

Scroll back up to the picture.
It’s not so much what we cannot do without the government that should wake you up.
It’s the reality that the CCSS Machine is limiting us (and our children) every single day to what we CAN and WILL do. Where we’ll ‘serve’, where’ll we’ll live and whom will share that space, and, where our work for the ‘collective greater good’ will leave a lustrous shine on all of humanity..

What a horrible future for any of us! Especially our children, little or not. We say we’d do anything to protect them, but, as Warriors, are we?!

So, what does it mean to be civilly disobedient? You know your Constitutional rights and ANY of them being violated are grounds enough to act upon.

Look back at history, especially here in America.

Thoreau chose to not pay taxes and went to jail. His reasoning justified that spending time in jail for the right reason (protesting a wrong) is far better than to do nothing at all.  

 Many other groups have successfully been civilly disobedient and seen changes happen which supported their reason for disobedience.

I have the honor of being associated with a NC citizen who became famous for his act of respectful protest. Known as one of the Greensboro Sit-in participants, Clarence Henderson has been a beacon for many of us in the nation (and NC).

(Source for image and article. All 4 members are named. My associate, Mr. Henderson, is the last one on the right.) The Greensboro gentlemen were protesting racism. Thoreau was protesting poor government policy.

The Anti Fed Ed Warrior question needs to be:

Is there ANYTHING you’d NOT be willing to do to protect your child from the CCSS Machine? Would you risk jail? Would you risk withholding taxes? Would you hold a sign up in a peaceful protest? Would you sit in front of the local school board to save our kids?

However you choose to be civilly disobedient, DO NOT GO ALONE. You’ll be easily marginalized and forgotten.

Why We Shouldn’t Let The CCSS Machine “Shine”:

Warriors, did you know the current grab for our babies has been gearing up (in earnest) since ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act)? Did you know there’s a group in the CCSS Machine called Child Trends? Child Trends is pushing a 5 State Initiative (NC, MN, OK, UT,and RI) to merge data collection on birth to 8 years of age. It’s called the SHINE Initiative. (SHINE stands for State-level Home Integration with Early Childhood Data Systems).

While that’s bad enough, look at the Child Trends partners:

Here are some of the funding partners for Child Trends:

childtrend

To see the 2018 (December) Blog entry about the SHINE ‘lessons’ being learned about aligning data collection, especially during home visits, go here.

How did the Child Trends pick the 5 States for SHINE? I don’t know, but I did find their source. It’s called the ECDC (Early Childhood Data Collaborative). Based off the ECDC map, you’ll see the 5 States (NC, MN, RI, OH, and UT) are all the same color. That dark color means that most of their student/child data systems are aligned. These systems will track our babies into their workforce days and beyond. (Remember the phrase ‘cradle to grave’? This is exactly why we have that phrase.) Notice how many other States are the darker color. The light color means alignment is planned. States with no color are not planning on linking up systems.

ecdc

Warriors, do you notice the States are puzzle pieces and not their definitive shapes?
This resembles the CCSS Machine’s view of our children. Parts of a puzzle; cogs in a wheel. Funders for ECDC are some of the same as the Child Trends.

Do you see why the SHINE is NOT ‘divine’? Fight back, Warriors!! These data systems are fully in gear to grind down our children.

strainface
Not A Shine, But Certainly A Stink:

pee-ew

Warriors, the ESSA did increase home visits in its mandates. But did you know back in 2011, not long after Common Core was rolled out, that the Pew Charitable Trust set up home visit data trail foundations? Those indicators for ‘student outcomes’ are still in place. In fact, the SHINE States are using them as benchmarks for cradle to grave alignment. As you know, any time the government uses ‘outcomes’ it is for their design on your student’s lives, not your student’s best for life.

“Outcomes” is a CCSS Machine educratic buzzword. We  CANNOT trust it at all.

Lastly, Warriors, the Pew Charitable Trusts will have that distinct CCSS Machine smell due to the grants from the Gates Foundation.

Closing:

Thanks for letting get on my ‘soapbox’ today. It’s been a long time in the making. I hope we’ll band together to protect our children. Our government isn’t about to do it. They’d rather see us citizens of THE state, not a free and intelligent nation.

How one might say we feel about the quality of education CCSS is delivering.

 

A Shiny New Coat

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we all know the story of the “Emperor’s New Clothes”, right?
Basic themes in the story are vanity, money, and deception.

Those same basic themes can pretty much sum up the educratic shift in our classrooms across the globe. Here in America, we’ve definitely seen the greed and deception take our academics away and replace it with workforce training.

So, what happens when you take a CCSS Machine member group like IBM, attach a shiny new coat of deception to education and add it to a notoriously bad on-line school? 

A slick sales pitch with a hidden agenda attached!

The “New Collar” Is Still A Servant’s Collar:

Warriors, IBM’s CEO, back in 2016, came up with a new phrase for the same old CCSS Machine alignment: “new collar jobs”. Below is her opinion column in USA Today:

newcollar
Part of the CEO’s plan for ‘new collar jobs’? P-Tech Schools (I exposed them years ago). These schools are 6 year high schools which focus on industry skills at a ‘community college’ level.

Community colleges have been called ‘Camelot’ (by the CCSS Machine) for their access to all school choices intersecting and the ability to carry on (or introduce) CTE, Career Tech Education, CCs (Career Clusters), CPs (Career Pathways), STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math), dual enrollment, and, concurrent enrollment.

IBM, late 2018, announced that Ireland became the first country outside of the US, to adopt P-Tech. Notice how IBM is taking credit, as well as using ‘local educators’ as the creators.

Warriors, IBM’s CEO is an appointed member of the new National Council for the American Worker (aka: National Workforce Council), here in the US.

K-12, Inc., A Long Time CCSS  Machine Member Group:

Warriors, back in 2015, I showed you how K-12, Inc. was in the CCSS Machine, as well as in co-operation with the NASBE (National Association for State Boards of Education). If you followed me back then, you also know I shared with you the struggle NC (where I live) had with keeping K-12, Inc’s. terrible track record out of the State, only to allow it in the end, as a school choice. Then, there was the overreach by K-12, Inc. into homeschooling. If you read their recent “Student Impact” report, you’ll see lots of hype about increased student engagement.

So, with such an awful past, why is K-12, Inc. still in the ‘education’ business? Look below for one reason why:

This is the recent ad K-12, Inc. ran on social media:

k12incp
The goal for K-12, Inc. NOW, is to be a part of building a national career readiness infrastructure. One of the ways this will happen, is ‘the right education’, not “more education”.

k12hype

How will the K-12, Inc. folks know they’ve helped close the ‘skills gap’ (another CCSS Machine fallacy)? By sending “K-12 powered” students into the workforce.

As far as the partnerships K-12, Inc. is building to have all the career readiness infrastructure take off? A direct quote, “To do this, we are aligning with higher education institutions, school districts, and industry partners to offer career training. We are working to pair this training with summer jobs, externships*, paid internships, drop-in training, and part-time and full-time employment opportunities.”
(*Note: ‘externship’ is a temporary training period.)
Be sure to notice which ‘top companies’ K-12, Inc. mentions to work for in the article linked above.

In that article, Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce was cited. I showed you last year (2018) how Georgetown was assaulting real education with quasi-education.

The Report the Center on Ed/Workforce has published (which K-12, Inc. is basing their infrastructure plan off of) doesn’t state ‘Hey, we’ve got a few suggestions.’ It clearly states their findings are ‘requirements’. Among those ‘requirements’? STEM jobs!

Warriors, below is WHY Georgetown University is so biased about an educated workforce:

GUCCSS
If you cannot read the print, Lumina Foundation, Joyce Foundation, and, the Gates Foundation are the main funders of the Georgetown Center on Education for the Workforce.

So, if you’re going to change the national infrastructure to career readiness, these are a few of the groups which will be involved.

The Career Readiness Partner Council:

Warriors, if you’ve not heard of this Council, it’s been around since 2012. Housed in the Advance CTE National Association (a huge CCSS Machine group). The list of Council members is long. You’ll see all of them are CCSS Machine members, too.

CEP (Center for Education Policy):

Warriors, this CCSS Machine member group has published many CCR (College/Career Readiness) documents. Most are geared for one goal: 21st competency skills graduates.

JFF (Jobs for the Future):

Warriors, be sure to look at their “Opportunity Works” program for workforce readiness.

National Informal STEM Network:

Warriors, this Arizona State University and Univ. of MN backed on-line group, have all sorts of STEM activities (which are CCR dressed as fun)

CCREC (College and Career Readiness Evaluation Consortium):

Warriors, this group works with certain States and those States GEAR UP grants.
GEAR UP
is a federal program which is 100% workforce based. It uses STEM, CCR, CCSS, and, CTE. The Consortium also partners with Act, Inc. and is a heavy student data collector.

NCPN (National Career Pathways Network):

Warriors, be sure to read their “Items of Interest” section. You’ll see CTE and STEM promoted. You’ll also see the IBM ‘open collar’ article. You’ll want to read about the German based ‘vocational dual training system’, too. (*Note: among the top items of the German study, are economic goals, social goals, and, personal goals.)

voctegrave

Warriors, don’t forget to change an infrastructure you have to have legislation. So Congress is an obvious CCSS Machine group to watch in all this.

Don’t forget, all the job websites (like Monster and Indeed, etc.) will have career readiness or career assessments. Our federal government gives States grants for One-Stop Job/Employment Centers. These will be huge CCR locations.

Closing:

Warriors, the last place we will need to watch for ‘infrastructure’ changes in education is the HEA (Higher Education Act) as it is readied to become re-authorized. I have shown you over the years, how the HEA is the last link in the cradle to grave workforce education chain. Career Readiness will be a huge part of the new version.

Believe me, the educratic emperors will be strutting all over the nation with THAT shiny new coat of deception.
