Anti Fed Ed Warriors, it’s “From the Files” Tuesday. So, what does that mean? It means that what our topic of the day is, there will be documents shared which you’ll want to hang on to.
Warriors, you may be wondering why I used ‘geez’ in the title today. That’s a good question. I’ll be going over the most “G” meetings and preview a big one coming up in August 2019. What IS a “G” meeting? If you’ve heard of the G7 or G8, maybe the G20; that’s what I’m referring to. The “G” stands for ‘Group’. So, G7 is “Group of 7”. You can guess the others from there.
So, what do the G7, G8, and G20 have in store for education in the US? Let’s go to the files!
Warriors, the next G7 meeting is set for August 2019. According the their ‘about us’ information, the G7 is not a formal group with a charter or secretariat, like the UN (United Nations). However, they do have presidents and sherpas leading their meetings and advising all policies.
From what I can gather, the G7 exists to put into action what the G20 (as the global economic driver) plans out.
The last G7 meetingwas June 2018 and was held in Canada. Where did ‘education’ surface? Gender equality and the workforce. (At least according to the EU’s Report, linked above.)
If you’d like to listen to the Internet Society’s take on the last G7 meeting, that’s here. They were/are all ‘about’ technology (data collection). If you’d like to read the 2016 article on the Internet Society’s adoption of the SDGs and what it means for the entire world and internet access, go here.
As far as the 2019 G7meeting, here’s a preview from the IISD (International Institute for the Sustainable Development Goals). France holds the current Presidency.
Warriors, what difference does Russia joining the existing G7 countries mean? What does it mean for education? (*Note: the admission of Russia into this Group, has been off and on again, for years. However, economic influenced decisions impact everyone in the world, member country or not.
In fact, the Russians just hosted an international economic meeting earlier this month for SPIEF, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (June 2019). Among SPIEF partners, are the US/Russia Business Council, Germany, France, and Japan. Pretty much most of the G7 nations.) In all, over 500 Americans attended this Forum. There were many from the G20 in attendance, as well. (*Note: there are links to more SPIEF files below.)
Basically Warriors, the G8 is the coming together of the world’s top economic countries. This BBC link does a great job of explaining how the G8 differs from the G7. (*Note: the embedded video will not work, due to the fact it’s unavailable in the US.)
Warriors, let’s remember that economics are what is the driving force of the modern education shift from academics to workforce.
If you’d like to read this archived report of just HOW the power of the G8 has been used in both economics AND constitutionality, go here. (*Note: be sure to use the translation option.)
From what I can find, the sole purpose of the G8 is to breed global conformity on the top issues. Those issues appear to be right in step with the UN and SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), too.
Warriors, would you believe the religious leaders from across the globe are in support of the G8/G20? I found this YouTube video from the CCSS Machine member university (Georgetown Univ.) where you can hear directly from some religious leaders. If you’d like a full list of participants and churches/faiths represented, go here.
The G20’s Upcoming Meeting:
Warriors, as you know, I covered the 2018 G20 meetings before mainstream media. In those articles, I told you Japan would be hosting the 2019 Meetings. It’s set for late June 2019 (the 28th and 29th). What can we expect during those 2 days? (*Note: several G20 related meetings have either already been completed or will be by December 2019. Look in the “Related Resources” for more information.)
3) SPIEF’s attendees heard about ‘social guarantees’as provided by society. They also were ‘treated’ to the rhetoric of ‘next generation’ business leaders. With the way social justice and workforce based economics is going, these will play into America sooner than later. Especially with all our connections to the G7, G8, G20, ILO, and a host of other globally minded CCSS Machine members.
4) The complete list of G20 meetings (Labor’s is in Sept. 2019 and will absolutely involved education), go here.
5) If you’re concerned about ‘big data’, read this G20 speech by the Japanese Prime Minister.
7) To see the DW4SD complete context, my article on it is here. (*Note, you’ll also be able to connect the ILO to the U.S. Dept. of Labor. As you know, the Dept. of Labor is a huge overreaching agency in American education.)
8) The Denver, CO conference speakers and other resources are here. (*Note: be sure to see the ‘early childhood education collective impact’ information.)
9) If you’d like to keep up with all the global conferences and meetings which impact us, as Americans, without all the mainstream media misinformation, this is a handy link to have. Why is a ‘business’ calendar helpful for education news? As we know, education has been turned into a business, thanks to the CCSS Machine!
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I’m not sure how much nautical experience you have or don’t have. I’ll be using some of the terms today to illustrate the recent CIEB (Center for International Benchmarking) and NCEE(National Center for Education and Economics) Seminar featuring Marc Tucker’s latest book, “Leading High Performance School Systems (Lessons from the World’s Best). This seminar was held on the 23rd of April 2019 in DC. (*Notes: a) CIEB is an arm of NCEE. b) Here’s the Feb. 2019Press Releasefor the Tucker book. c) NCEE isfundedby the CCSS Machine and is considered a ‘go to resource for credibility.)
Yes, Warriors, THAT Marc Tucker (Mr.“Dear Hillary”). Don’t think he disappeared from the educratic scene after his “Dear Hillary” letter. (*Note, fellow Warrior, Dr. Young wrote about that infamous letter on her website, Crucial Voice of the People.)
The worst part of the “Tucker” ship upon education’s waters? It’s not the only ship!
Warriors, the entire event was just over 3 hours. I’ve embedded the YouTube link for you. What follows are notes and pictures to illustrate the churning waters which are about to drown our nation..if we let it.
**Start around the 14 minute mark. During that time, I noted the following CCSS Machine member groups/people praising Tucker’s new book as they flashed on the screen:
a) The U.S. Dept. of Education’s Under Secretary (Duncan Era)
b) Linda Darling Hammond (both as Learning Policy Institute and CA State Board of Education leader). *Note: LDH was a guest during the seminar, too. c) Representative of the Harrisburg, PA School District. *Note: the Superintendent for Harrisburg was a guest during the seminar. d) DE’s New Sussex Technical School
e) Mr. Driscoll, former MA Education leader
f) OECD, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Ex. Dir. for Education/Skills. *Note: much of Tucker’s stats are based off OECD data. OECD is also responsible for the ‘human capital’ phrase. g) Harvard Univ.’s School of Education *Note: They are big on school redesign, too. Harvard partnered with Pearson to help create the Pathways to Prosperity which ‘churned up’ CPs, Career Pathways. h) NEA President, Lily Garcia
i) Asia Society
From Tucker’s Speech (aka Remarks): Warriors, these are from the beginning of the seminar. Tucker will reappear a couple of times. If and when you watch the video, note his facial expressions from time to time. Very mean spirited looks (and words) are evident.
1) Tucker and his research team have been going to the top performing countries for the past 30 years and bringing back concepts to the US.
2) His book is geared to school superintendents and lays out how they are the biggest ‘wave walkers’. Superintendents can also bring folks with them to jump in the pool.
3) Other countries (in his ‘Did you know’ portion) have strong government supports in education, much more than the US. We must be like them. We must have more wrap around supportive services and CTE (Career Tech Education), or as it’s known in Europe VET (Vocational Education and Training).
4) America’s education system is so desperate we’ll take any teacher who can ‘fog a glass’. Other countries’ teachers are industry based top professionals.
5) Four steps we, as Americans must take to have education like the top performing countries: a) vision and plan that everyone can ‘buy in’ to; b) have powerful industries link to community colleges for CCR (College and Career Readiness) aka Common Core; c) the goal, all students CCR by 10th grade linked to a framework from 1st grade and up. Assessments to link all together. It appeared Tucker was suggesting that 10th grade wasn’t part of high school and/or that high school was any type of college filled with ‘real CTE’ and P3s (public private partnerships); and d) highly qualified, tenured K-12th grade teachers.
Warriors, what if a student is struggling to become CCR by any grade level in Language Arts and Math? Here was Tucker’s level of concern:
What about the teachers and students working together? According to the research Tucker has written about the teachers from other countries spend much less time being in front of their students and more time collaborating. Think ‘redesigning schools’ much like we’ve heard from DeVos and the CCSS Machine.
Just what is that ‘world class performance’? NWO or new work organization (could we also connect this to the NWO, New World Order? Sure sounds like it!) Why ‘new work organization’? We must streamline education for being more skill based and organized. Included in this ‘new organization’ must be more social webs of supports, especially for early learners and low-income families. We must have comprehensive wrap around services to close the equity gap.
One question comes to mind about the Constitution and Tucker’s comment. Where did the Constitution ‘assign’ education to the States? It didn’t. Education wasn’t ‘assigned’ at all! After laying out in Amendments 1-9 what was federal, the 10th Amendment gave everything else to the States to handle. At the time, education wasn’t even a State responsibility, but has since become one due to the wording of the 10th Amendment. Under certain parts of the 14th Amendment, free public education cannot be denied, but it is in the instance of undocumented immigrants, not natural born citizens or naturalized ones.
LDH’s Ship Of Indoctrination Sets Sail:
Warriors, yes, we really need to look at Linda Darling-Hammond’s part of this churning waters reform.
You’ll find her portion near the 58:22 time stamp.
LDH wrote the forward for Tucker’s new book (bait for the waters).
It was noted by LDH that many countries come to America to see how we’ve ‘innovated’ education. That’s good, she said, but we must scale up our innovations to meet THEIR high performance, organized systems. Part of those include national or state curriculum, philanthropy funded schools, government funded teacher prep or PD (Professional Development) which is aligned to a routine system.
Near the 1:09 time stamp, the moderator leads up to his question to LDH with this, “You’re deeply into the policy agenda in this country. So what’s your perspective as President of the CA State Board of Ed.” Her response? “Under ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) it returned a little to an idea called ‘think’. It increased flexibility and States re-investing in education. It’s systematic. How do we align all parts of this system? We have to come back to the 1990s (before NCLB, No Child Left Behind). We have to have funding and invest in our teachers and leaders.”
Warriors, let me pause here, if LDH really thinks ESSA allows us to dial back the 1990s, that would put us right smack dab in the vortex Tucker wrote Hillary about! When you get to today’s ‘related resources’, you’ll see the direct connection.
Near the 1:16:49 time stamp, the US will be compared to Finland in regards to teaching by LDH. She then launches into how we need to revolutionize the teaching profession (called ‘craft’ repeatedly by many in the seminar) to equal the revolution in healthcare (before Johns-Hopkins became the ‘benchmark’).
Near 1:25:00, Our need for centralized education ‘where locals dance to State support’s tune’. You’ll also hear how everything Gov. Brown started, she’ll extend. How CCSS and NGSS (Next Gen Science Standards) have allowed a framework to ‘center on top-down support for bottom-up reform’. Next, SEL (social emotional learning) and ‘collective efforts‘. Warriors, keep in mind, this is all AFTER Hammond professed ESSA’s greater flexibility.
Anybody Got A Bucket?
The next segment of the seminar was a round-table discussion:
Warriors, I want to focus on Fuhrman’s portion right here. You’ll see why, below. It’s what follows her comments above.
She followed these brilliant insights with, “US Legislators basically not performing like education ministers of other countries.”Fuhrman also pointed out that NCLB (No Child Left Behind) narrowed American Standards while RttT (Race to the Top) was a backlash to the standards.
I’m still trying to figure out just how this makes sense, Warriors.
As far as her working with Brazil, it’s ironic that the UN (United Nations) used Brazil’s STEAM and SEL (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, Math and Social/Emotional Learning), open classrooms, IT (information technology), and CBE, Competency Based Education to infiltrate US schools.
Then, there’s Dan Domenech…
Warriors, Domenech went on to say that we need more ‘multi-age groups’, more “early childhood education”. We want ‘sustained change’. Then when asked how to get the nation’s attention, his response “Keep throwing out there how inferior we are, that’ll tick people off. Then, look at Tucker’s 9 Blocks (in his book). We need SEL and test scores, wrap around supports for families. We are doing this for the best interest of children.” One of the most surprising comments by Domenech, was he, along with these progressive minded reformers, were tickled that Pres. Trump has embraced and pushed CTE (Career Tech Ed) and apprenticeships. Because that’s exactly how and what the other countries are doing to prepare their students! He went on to say Americans really like this! (You’ll find these near the 2:09:30 time stamp. It is near the end of D’s comments he uses the Lord’s name in vain.)
If you cannot listen to Tucker by himself, go back and listen to the Round-table. There’s so much more, especially when these 3 ‘tackle’ politics in education.
The Final Buoy:
Warriors, near the 2:13:02 time stamp, two PA Superintendents were brought on stage to talk about their portion of the churning waters. I encourage to listen to their CCSS Machine rhetoric, there’s more than what you see below:
Setting An Anchor:
Warriors, at the 2:53:26 to the end, listen to the moderator, the 2 ‘we’re not plants in the audience’, and Marc Tucker. You’ll find CCSSO (Counsel of Chief State School Officers) was there, Great City Schools, and, New America Ed Policy were in the audience.
1) From NCEE, 2017: The “Prepare to Lead” Report. Geared for principles in schools to be globally aligned via ‘best practices’.
2) From the Women on the Wall, 2014, several Warriors gathered to discuss the ramped up shift from academics to workforce education. There were 21 ways in which CPs (Career Pathways) were embedded in WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014). WIOA was embedded in ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015) when it stated on Page 17 that all education must be aligned to post-secondary readiness standards as laid out by WIOA.
3) From earlier this month, my expose on VET from Germany and how America’s kowtowing to it. Warriors, it’s THIS that Tucker’s entire platform for ruining American education is built upon.
4) Those “top countries” Tucker swears we need to be just like?
Warriors, that’s quite a bit of agenda from Tucker, but he gave us clues as to Maryland and its part in this sinking ship. I’ll be heading there in my next article.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my last article, I showed you the at least 20 year old movement to ‘expand time’ in the name of ‘education’. If you read that article, you saw that the goal wasn’t a true academic advancement of oneself, it was more about a student/worker hurried up and churned out as a ‘competent’ skill based apprenticeship leading to a job.
However, what if I showed you, there’s a much more devious plan afoot?
Warriors, we once experienced history where Germany attempted to ‘rule the roost’. If you’re like me, you weren’t born then, so you didn’t live through those horrors.
Immediately after World War II, America was one of the 4 countries in control of the restructure. Many years later, the changes which were made, showed through in education. How? By way of the economic structure, the corporate structure, and, the government structure changes.
Yes, the US was involved in the German restructure by pushing for ‘democracy’. Since America’s a republic (by ourConstitution), I wonder what would be different today, had the push been for a ‘republic’.
So, imagine, that in 2019, in America, some of those very Germanic restructured roots showed up.What would you do? What has OUR government done? What has OUR economy done for education? What has OUR corporate structure accomplished?
******************************************************************** The educratic global shift we’ve seen is NOT the fault or total undoing of one country, it’s been a controlled and well financed group effort!
Enter the Word Game surrounding “Competence”:
Warriors, if you’re like me, every time you hear certain words, you cringe. Especially when you research items. You may also be like me, and see the larger picture looming in the background because you’ve seen so much. Case in point, “Competence”.
****If you choose to access the German/Latin roots, you may need to use your internet tool for an English translation.*****
My fellow Warriors, you know how I’ve shown you, over the years, the word games used against us. I’m not assuming every educrat in DC or your State knows the watered down English version of ‘competency’; but knowing it has more to do with other things than true academics, do you see how it’s been used to further the agenda?!
Look at it this way, ‘CBE, competency based education’: NOT ‘expert’ based education or ‘skill’ based, BUT ‘legally controlled and authoritatively carried out’ education!!
English speaking countries may mean ‘skill based’, but NOT“expert based” or ‘legally/authority based’. But, if the educrats did mean one version, and, assume you and I believe the other, then it’s the Latin meaning of ‘clashing’.
It’s also a ‘classic set up’, we’ve seen the CCSS Machine used repeatedly, you look one way, while I undermine the other way.
So why, in the context of ‘competent’, would the German version be more accepted and in 2019?
****Because it is the closest to align with the UNESCO/OECD* plan for authoritatively controlled workforce based training NOT academic prowess!!****
(*Note: OECD is short for Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. UNESCO is short for the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization.)
Warriors, why would it matter what the German usage and meaning of ‘competence’ really stands for? Because when it’s accepted as their nation sees it, it’s about a collective reflection of education interests of the society….not each student.
This is an approach DC has been taking for years. Especially since the Johnson Administration straight through to the Trump team.
Come with me, Warriors, as I show you the German model America has heartily set us up to embrace without hesitation. (How much of the current system is based off Hitler’s? Read and find out.)
Warriors, Germany still calls education which trains you for a job or a trade as vocational education. Americans called it ‘vo tech’.
Some Americans, to this day, believe ‘vo tech’ is not only still an option, but should be taught. In 2006, that term ‘died’ and was replaced. (Yes, Warriors, another word game.)
That’s when our US government changed what the definition of ‘vocational education’ was. The ‘training’ portion was also redefined. How? The government funding! However, even the CCSS Machine still uses ‘vo tech’ in America to confuse us!
Congress, at least, has finally stopped lying about how education is seen. Look below, this sentiment is readily spoken and shared by BOTH major political parties:
A German Commissioned Study:
Warriors, I found this undated (appears to be very recent, though) commissioned study by Bertelsmann Stiftung (an education based social change group. They heavily support a ‘school to work’* concept.) But, it’s WHERE I found it, you will be interested in. The American “National Career Pathways Network” website. (*Something we’ve seen DC embed for years now.)
The German Study features an ‘expert’ from Germany who is considered the ‘go to’ guy on vocational tech training. His name is Professor Dr. Dieter Euler. He’s known across the world as the specialist for reforming vocational tech systems.
Warriors, I’ll share some of the most troubling points from the Study. I trust you can see the ways in which our nation, our government, and, our corporate overreaches have set the same shift up in American education. I encourage you to read the Study on your own.
1) The shift to work based learning (also called dual enrollment) should be the main focus of vocational tech/training. The main target? Citizens under 25 years old. (Page 14 has a brief history of combining education and work.)
2) Many countries are looking at the success of Germany’s system because it’s been spun as a ‘win/win’. Students get fast tracked education, employers get trained workers.
3) America’s not as developed in dual vocational tech, yet. But, the shift is being increased with ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) and its embedding of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), and HEA (Higher Education Act).
HEA is currently the last national US law to receive the ‘school to work’ makeover. Congress is dead set on increasing the German based concepts. How? Increased CTE (Career Tech Education), which replaced ‘vo tech’, increasing apprenticeships andinternships, increasingdual enrollment, and anything connecting them all.
4) The 11 Vo-Tech Reform Components can best be accomplished in ‘incremented innovation’ programs and learning. The shift in education and work training is also metered out in ‘incremented segments’.
Switzerland’s cantons are in charge of all vocational based exams. (In America, we are divided into States, Swiss has cantons.) Cantons have their own government set-up, but they cannot contradict the federal confederation.
In the Netherlands, they are receiving lots of global attention in vo-tech education. Why? Their 1996 Adult and Vocational Technical Training Act* merged education and labor into 2 training tracks. One was/is school based, the other is dual workforce training (or vocational tech training). *See Point 2.4. Notice the regional vo-tech training centers.
All the countries mentioned above are using national credentialing systems. Why? The ‘big essential’ is ‘real life conditions’ can best be experienced in dual vo-tech training, not necessarily education (you’ll see that referenced on Page 30.)
Warriors, every ONE of these are things are either already in place in America, or the framework isbeinglaid out!! How?College and Career Readinessvia ESSA, WIOA, HEA, and more!
The screen shot below is from an old article of mine on apprenticeships in America, but notice the wrench and hammer symbol.
Study Warning Bells For Us:
1) By government and business ‘rule’ a ‘consensus principle’ will be put in place.
2) By government and business funding, education and training, especially for jobs will be ‘easier’. But at what cost of our freedoms will this be?
3) “Industry specific solidarity contributions”. What will these look like? Grants for apprenticeships!
4) A merger of economics, family, and youth via integrative vocational training (Norway has had this since the mid 90s). 5) A ‘flexible’ vocational education/training track for disadvantaged citizens.
6) “Quality standards” for vocational tech training and education mean laws, not scopes and sequences we’re used to.
7) Teachers and Trainers will have government controlled ‘hoops to jump through’. Their section begins on Page 52. Look for the “Ordinance on Trainer Aptitude”. Then, read what the UN (United Nations) has on this. 8) Class size changes will occur. Being done away with are the large, teacher led classes. What the shift to vo-tech training will produce (already in use in Denmark) is small ‘hubs’ or groups. These groups will spend 5 weeks at a time on one module, then switch to another. A large ‘completion logbook’ is kept on each person. This is their version of ‘personalized learning’.
9) Expect more ‘education research groups’ and ‘vocational analysis’. Germany’s model has been deemed so successful because all the reform is based off ‘in-depth’ research.
I was curious as to what other reforms this German ‘expert’ has been a part of. Here’s what I found:
A) From 2006, A Swiss paper on ‘E-Learning’. A mandate for vocational training/education to be including in the SVC(Swiss Virtual Campus).
B) From 2010, Euler’s paper on developing and transitioning vocational technical training and demographics. He predicted a labor shortage by 2025. Below is the screen shot for the 2013 Journal/Report in appeared in.
C) In this undated McMillian Publishingproof, Euler was a contributor. So was the Aspen Institute. Euler’s topic was ‘Reflective Executives: A Realistic Goal for Modern Management Education’. A brief summary (Page 11) of Euler’s work reveals that ‘management education’ is more of a control tool, than it sounds. Aspen Institute wrote on 2 different topics. One was on business and its relation to social and environmental issues, the other, “A Closer Look at Business Education: Sustainability in Curriculum”. This book was written exclusively for an audience of humanism followers. Warriors, it’s important to note that much of the UN’s overreach into education is rooted in humanism.
D) From 2013, The Routledge Companion to International Management Education had Euler write on “Reflective Leadership: A Vision for International Management Education”. As you can see (below) ‘international management education’ is tied to the UN’s design via the GRLI (Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative). This screen shot is a bit hard to see, so be sure to go to the link above and read it there. When you read the GRLI and related information, you’ll see international managed education is NOT about training or educating people for managerial employment, it’s about controlling education altogether!
Warriors, with the process for the HEA heating up before Sen. Lamar Alexander retires, we have got to inform our representatives and senators about what they are supporting and trying to further. We are America, not Germany 2.0! We are free Americans, not UN led-by-the-nose citizens!
With all that you’ve learned in this article about the words being used against us, you know the UN/UNESCO/GRLI attempts to fast track apprenticeships (like Citizen Schools and the German model) will be lumped in under ‘lobbyists’ and ‘special interests’.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, much has been written in uncovering the global ties to the SEL (social emotional learning). We saw SEL begin to ‘ramp’ up with the release of Common Core. We’ve seen it continue to grow in scope and sequence since ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) passed.
************************************************************************ This article, is quite in-depth. As such, use it as a study guide to last over several days. This topic is difficult and cannot simply be glossed over OR rushed through.
You’ve, no doubt read the plethora of articles, research, and first-hand accounts of the damage SEL does to our students. It isn’t any easier for those leading our children, either. Consider that many teachers, leaders, and school administrators have either left their schools, or worse, harmed themselves or have died.
Warriors, now that some States have been ‘approved’ to carry ESSA’s massive amount of SEL mandates, we’ll continue to see how lowly this global brain washing will stoop.
SEL Is Scary:
What makes the SEL via ESSA so scary? Not only is the overall goal a passed-down-from-the-UN-directive, but ESSA’s mandate to have MOREP3s (public private partnerships), more assessing than ever by non-professional medical personnel, and, more non-profits leading your students in ANYTHING which can be evenlooselypassed off as ‘educational outreach’, should have us all revolting! Warriors, let me state, I am not saying that all SEL is unneeded, but to see the lengths ESSA goes to label everyone who doesn’t conform is a ‘play’ right out of the UN’s Global Education for Allplan.
What’s the UN directive which drives SEL?Warriors, it’s a two-prong answer:
a) Creating all education to be the ‘one-way-to-learn-so-you-can-earn’ workforce streamline from cradle to grave system. b) Creating new, and, enhancing existing wrap-around services to embrace the family to usher in the ‘nanny state’, regardless of where you live.
How does this seemingly simple directive play out, every day in America? The use of education as a ‘change agent’. By removing real education and substituting quasi-education, brain development is not only stunted, it’s re-programmed to accept whatever is being offered as training. ********************************************************* The HUGE problem with ESSA, is that much of the SEL mandates have NEVER been used before OR have been updated and rushed into the marketplace.
So, you child will be yet another experiment. ***********************************************************
However, Warriors, this warping of brains is NOT exclusive to public Pre-K to 12th grade schools. Why would this be happening in America, no matter where you attend school, or at what age?
Simply put: because the UN led accepted definition of peoplehas been changed to ‘human capital’. If your curriculum doesn’t bend your mind, the tests will. If the tests don’t the pigeon-hole assignment for your career track will.
Because the UN’s directive for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is in place (and firmly, I might add) AND accessible to entire communities, EVERY school choice is being influenced to shift from true academics where HOW to think should be the ultimate goal to that of a manipulated what to think is the ultimate goal.
Evidence You Need To See: If you missed my Feb. 2018 article exposing Otus Learning and how they are working with UN partners on RTI (Response to Intervention) Scales and more, find that research here.
If you’ve not see the extensive work of Warriorslike Anita Hoge detailed (and for years, I might add) how damaging SEL was (before CCSS) and is (since ESSA), I urge you to visit Child Abuse in the Classroom’swebsite and access the section labeled “Social-Emotional Learning”.
To see the late 2017 release of the UN’s Board Game to brainwash 8 to 10 years old into what to think, not how, read Alex Newman’ssummary of my research into the Game. (If you missed my homemade videos where the Game is seen ‘in action’, I’ve embedded the article with the videos, here.) (*Note: in the article with the videos, be sure to access the Marathon from Breaking News Journal. It connects to SEL through the aspect of the bullying and school violence issues. This is another HUGE way ESSA’s SEL will manipulate students. How? Labeling anyone who doesn’t conform as ‘troublemakers’.) If you’ve not seen the “Great Peace”video on social media from Quebec, I urge you to watch the short video of the child running through a maze like set up. The goal was to calm the child down (see the screen shot below):
See Quebec’s streamlined education map! See Global Affairs Canada’s website. To find the Canadian/UN ties, you can use the Global Affairs Canada search bar (something like 40,000 results) or visit this link to see a Development Program for developing countries. Why would we care about the Canadian/UN Plan for developing countries? Warriors, remember, the UN’s goal for ALL education is ‘one way’ and it’s their way!
Watch the video above, again, or look at the screen shot above, then contrast it with what you see below:
That’s right, Warriors, from the UN in 2001 “Leading the Way to Peace” teacher’s guide for ‘goals to peace’ education. Right off the bat, in bullet #1, the UN links inner peace with the success to the SDGs! Look at bullet #4, ‘Learning to Be’. To see the over 200 page Guide, find it here. Warriors, back in Feb. 2018, in one of my Patriot Institute articles, I showed you school interventions here in the US using a UN backed religion (which is all about inner peace). You may also find this article helpful. Be sure to read the comments following the article.
More SEL Resources:
From Second Step, a short video for training your PreK students how to ‘self regulate’ and more mind bending activities in the name of education. What is Second Step? It’s a program by the non-profit Committee for Children.
The CfC (as they are referred to) has beenaround since the 1970s. It was in the 1990s, however, when their interest in SEL began to take off. Of the global roots they tied in? Germany, Canada, and, Norway. This, of course, was in addition to the 50 States use of SEL, at the time.
Warriors, in the 2000s, CASEL (Collaborative for Academic Social Emotional Learning) and the U.S. Dept. of Education, have named CfC as one of the best SEL resources out there. (*Note: CASEL is a CCSS Machine member group which is very nasty in how it treats our educational system.)
If you’re not sure about how bad SEL was in the 1990s, Anita Hoge and Charlotte Iserbyt are your best resources. Diana Anderson, Donna Garner will also be among those I would trust to give you truth.
From You Tube, 2015, this doctor (Dr. Goodridge). explains how SEL will stunt school bullying and violence. She was addressing the ‘stakeholders’ for Rock Hill Public Schools. Now, while I couldn’t locate which State the school system she was addressing, I did find the 2013 Award winning (CA) high school she mentions as a great model for SEL in action. Dr. Goodridge also uses the CASEL 5 domains of SEL in her speech. Her point of medicating 4 to 17 years old students for SEL is quite disturbing. Her passionate statement that SEL will become ‘education’s American Express card’ should really set you on your ears.
From 2017, CCSS Machine member groups got together and studied ESSA’s SEL mandates. Their evidence can be seen below:
Within the 154 pages you’ll find CASEL’s 5 domains(one is ‘self regulation’ and was seen in the UN’s documents, too.) for SEL and tons more! Warriors, those of us who studied ESSA well before 2017, exposed the ways in students, teachers, and, entire communities would be aligned and streamlined.
So How Does SEL Work In Communities?
It’s impacting teachers and their pay. It’s used in community outreach programs, as well as in schools as a ‘good vs bad’ or colored coding behaviors into ‘acceptable’ or ‘not acceptable’. (*Note: in the color coded link, you’ll see PBIS, Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. Not only are those in ESSA, you’ll find them in the UN Peace Guide AND hear Dr. Goodridge speak in support of them.)

How this is a dangerous thing for American education AND communities is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math). After all, data collection, social media, on-line learning, and anything else connected falls under ‘technology’. STEM is the action plan for the SDGs via the ‘change agent’ in education! The warm and fuzzy, therefore, widely accepting way STEM is embraced is ‘innovation’. (*Note: look at how many of our federal and state legislation bills or laws use ‘innovation’.)
The SDGs are also up to no good with ‘innovation’. The UN also has a major choke hold on‘technology’and ‘innovation’. The most sinister part is the innovation and technology are being used tomanipulateminds AND lives!
In 2015, the UN published adocument called the Education Decade for the SDGs. Another UN resource calls the tech/innovation grab‘transformational’. Yes, brain washing and behavior coding will certainly fit into that label.
In 2014, theSDG/UNRoadmap for education. Warriors, since the US is a UN member state we are NOT exempt from the transformation, manipulation, or the brain bending assaults..not in education, not in our lives, and not in our nation.
Make no mistake, theSmart Citiespopping up across America play a HUGE role in the SDGs, the ‘good citizen vs bad citizen’ and more! Consider this, also, Warriors, since we are opposed to all this egregious and illegally based overreach into education AND our lives, we will not rank well on this global scale. You may wish to think about how a type of system like this will marginalize Warriors like us and how we need to be pro-active in sticking together. Many watching China’s Social Credit System have warned ‘bad citizens’ will be denied access to speedy internet, travels, even which schools our children may attend. Others have shown us how we can fight back against the “Smart Cities” and all the technology which feeds this twisted system which has trickled down into education.
Warriors, we’ve seen marginalizing by the CCSS Machine before, but not on this type of scale. We’ve seen federal overreach, but remember, this is being shoved at us from a global scale.
Manipulate minds, unfairly rank citizens, and ruin education. All for what? A ‘better’ global economy?! Frankly, that stinks to high Heaven.
Every person we can assist in ‘waking up’, removing their loved ones from this diabolical and global CCSS Machine is worth it. Join me as I continue on this journey with you.
