Know Thy Neighbor

Anti Fed Ed Warriors ~ we must be on guard at all times and keep our eyes open.
Another popular Diva post, “Whoa, Neighbor!“, reveals an example of who is promoting community engagement programs with the goal of peering further into our private lives.  Keep an eye out folks, you don’t just hand anyone the keys to your home.

Whoa, Neighbor!

Ushered in via the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act): Title 4 Funding’s “wrap arounds” and more Promise Neighbors.

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, what I’m about to share happened to me this past weekend. I got a seemingly harmless piece of mail. It was geared for my neighborhood and looked like a great way to get involved. I mean, after all, how many of us know to fight our War Vs the Core, we need to be locally minded first, then, venture out.

ESSA In Our Communities:

Below, is the letter I received. Notice how it states we can keep up with crime, safety, find our pets, etc. Nowhere do you see ‘school’ or “education”.

But, after digging into just who/what “Nextdoor” is, I found it’s VERY much in education. To the point it’s partnering with schools to breed community engagement. Something ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) embedded as a mandate.

nextdoorletter

Where in ESSA is the ‘community engagement’ language?
You’ll find ‘community’ 170 times.
You’ll also find community is involved in Sections 4001-4206 (21st Century Community Learning Centers); Sections 4501-4506 (Family Engagement), and, Section 4611 (Ed Research, Sub-part 2 Community Support for School Success), Section 4624 (Promise Neighborhoods), Section 4625 (Full service community schools), and ‘community colleges’, which are written throughout the law.

Back in 2018, I showed you how NC (where I live) has annual conferences to embed the community in education. In that article the Community in Education Conference was centered on ‘building capacity’ via ‘innovations’. This year’s was “personalized learning”.  Look in your State for similar programs.

The Nextdoor Company:

Warriors, you can access the website here.

nextdoor

From their Press Release section: “Headquartered in San Francisco, Calif., Nextdoor is a privately held company with the backing of prominent investors, including Benchmark, Greylock Partners, Tiger Global Management, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and others.”

So, how did I find Nextdoor in our schools? I did a general search.

The NY Times published in 2018, how the company can be used in politics. We know politics and education intertwine.

In 2015, the Tennessean published that Metro Nashville Public Schools became the first school district in the nation to partner with Nextdoor for a broader sense of community involvement in education.

If you look at one of the co-founders of Nextdoor, you’ll see she’s got ties to both Harvard and Microsoft, two huge CCSS Machine member groups. You’ll also see service on a MA school board.

When you think about the need for verification of address, that should alarm you. Why? It means your home address is being tracked. It’s not a far jump to remember that these on-line companies also can benefit from the smart devices students bring home which have been issued at schools.

Also consider that since FEMA and NOAA are also CCSS Machine member federal agencies/programs, it’s not a far stretch to think HUD (also among the federal CCSS Machine member agencies) will become involved with address and home ownership verification.

While it doesn’t appear Nextdoor is that creepy yet, it never hurts to be proactive. I do know that there has been talk about one day down the road, Nextdoor could be among internet providers. We KNOW that means massive trouble as far as personal data, especially when combined with school partners.

This “How Stuff Works” article points out that Nextdoor has had issues with racial profiling, but it working on it. The article also explains how services like Nextdoor have a niche market. How will privacy laws like FEPA (Foundations for Evidence-based Policy-making) factor in? What about the bullying aspect? If racial profiling’s an issue, how in the name of all that’s holy, will school partners prevent terrible behavior? What about hacking the neighborhood or school information?

To answer some of these questions, as well as to learn (page 7) how NextDoor owns your data once it’s supplied, the Ga Tech Study will be handy. In the GT Study are 13 references to data.

In 2017, CNBC reported Nextdoor was worth over $1 billion dollars in venture capital. Warriors, venture capitalists HATE local control in education. At least the CCSS Machine member venture capitalists like Netflix, Global Silicon Valley, etc.

Speaking of GSV (Global Silicon Valley), Nextdoor is among the Top 10 performers of  the GSV portfolio. So, all that data and those privacy concerns ARE a big deal after all!

Below are just a FEW of the education related groups also in the GSV portfolio. Since Nextdoor is too, I connected them for you.

gsvnext

If you’d like to see all my previous research and articles on GSV, go here.

One last thought, Warriors, Nextdoor and police departments partner together in several cities. Have you seen the large net law enforcement has, thanks to ESSA’s ‘school safety’ mandates? “Law enforcement” is embedded 6 times. Most are the student’s safety, but, we also know that lots of data sharing will take place. Again, with laws like FEPA, law enforcement agencies were given an increase in the amount of information they can collect and share. FEPA is also a back door to removing our 2nd Amendment rights.

Closing:

Warriors, in this day and age, take NOTHING at face value. I’m glad I did some digging into my neighborhood ‘watch’. Now that you know, warn someone who uses Nextdoor. Talk with someone considering it. They’re in for much more than a simple, ‘let’s be neighbors’ chat.

“The Prudence Files: Part Five”

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’ve made it! The final installment of my “The Prudence Files” series. Before we go on, I want to pause and thank those who’ve sent information, especially for Part Four. I want to thank each of you for coming back to find out the real truths not being given via mainstream media, too.

In this article, the last 2 Presidential hopefuls; private citizens. Howard Schultz (Former Starbucks CEO ) and Andrew Yang (Venture for America). Will either of these 2 offer We the People a glimmer of hope, as far as education? Let’s see what we can find out.

Schultz’s Bid:
Warriors
, while some sites say Mr. Schultz is considering running, the original source I used in Part One is where I learned he was. I did find his campaign website, so I’m pretty sure that’s a ‘winner’. Below is a picture of the website:

Schultz

Schultz is running as a ‘Centrist Independent’ candidate. In his words that means ‘governing from the middle’. According to the Centrist Party, these citizens and/or candidates have no party lines. As such rather than go with what’s popular, they go by what is right. Below is their stance on education.

centrist

Warriors
, it’s very important for me to say that Mr. Schultz is NOT the Centrist Party’s candidate. However, I wanted you to see how the Party leans. By contrast, the American Independent Party is completely different. They believe in the Judea-Christian values of our Founding Fathers (Schultz is Jewish). They also believe in States Rights for education. Again, Mr. Schultz is NOT the Independent Party’s candidate either.

So, I think it’s safe to say this ‘Centrist Independent’ COULD be a mix of the two principles. But, we also have to factor in Mr. Schultz has been a Democrat for many years.

I think you’ll understand why I wanted you to have some context before I show you what I found about Schultz’s education stance.

Where was his education stance ‘hiding’? It wasn’t in his pillars. No, it can be found in the “Howard’s Story” page on the website. I’ll admit the video has a catchy tune, there are bright colors and smiling faces. It’s all designed to ‘build you up’.

starbucks

Warriors, if you didn’t know it, ASU has been involved with some pretty horrid things for K-12th grade education. Back in 2016, I wrote about their part in a YouTube Red Channel movie called “The Thinning”. It was all about students literally dying or someone they loved die if a certain score wasn’t made on the standardized test.

If you didn’t see it, I also wrote about Starbucks and the PBIS system.

Finally, on this candidate, I’ll share this with you:

Mr. Yang:

Warriors, if you’ve not heard of Venture for America, that’s ok. I’ll be sure to link the evidence for you.
vfa

(Main Website)

To access the 2016 Annual Report, go here.
Warriors, if you use Netflix and have seen “Generation Startup” that’s the feature film about what VFA does. Jobs/economic for the community’s sake. While that’s good, the tag line for the movie has to do with ‘learning to fail’. That’s a key concept the CCSS Machine loves to use. By the way, Netflix is among the CCSS Machine members/groups seeking to destroy local control.

So, you know a bit about the company Yang founded. Let’s look at his 2020 Presidential campaign.

yang
To see all his policies/issues, visit this page.

Warriors, if you read “Andrew’s Story”, he’ll tell you he was raised to go after the American Dream. You’ll learn his ties to Brown Univ. as well as Columbia Univ. (Both universities are CCSS Machine member organizations. In Part 4, I shared both their ties to the Tavistock Inst.)

You’ll also see he tells you he had an education company, but doesn’t share the name or what other group(s) bought him out. Look below:

You may find this related article helpful in connecting Yang’s for profit testing company to Knewton.

Warriors, I hope you see the toxic ties to the CCSS Machine very clearly. It appears neither of these is the Anti Fed Ed champ we need.

Warrior/Citizen Actions:

Well, Warriors, we’ve done it, taken 5 articles to lay out education/educratic stances of the 20 candidates (and possible candidates) running for President in 2020. As you know the campaigns are on-going. As you know, they will only step up in appearances.

So, what DO we do with all the information I’ve given you? Yes, it’s been grueling to slog through all their websites (or lack of), but the reason I wanted to do this for the nation, especially you, my fellow Warriors, is we HAVE to make as much noise as possible!

I told you in Part One I wouldn’t tell you whom to vote for. However, whomever you see you most like among the 20, do this:

1) Attend as many meetings of his or hers as possible. Forget party allegiance, the politicians certainly have. Is this risky? Absolutely, BUT, gladly risk your comfort zone for the children, I am. So can you. Don’t develop tunnel vision, watch for debates, shows, etc. Listen to what’s said (or not said).
2) We all know in war (War Vs the Core) you have to hang out with the enemy from time to time. Just be prudent and don’t go alone. Whatever you do, be respectful, there is going to be enough strife. If you are rude in making your points, you’ll be discounted. Remember, these are people, not punching bags (words or fists).
3) Take the points about the candidates which trouble you the most and speak out! Steer the conversation, don’t give up! (Written ones are the best and provide a copy with facts and links to point to Anti Fed Ed truths.)
4) Write open letters, letters to the editor, call in to like minded radio shows, no matter how big or small. Request private media shows centered around these Anti Fed Ed truths the nation needs to know and hear. Make your own video and share.
5) Speak up, hold them accountable! That is part of a prudent voter/Warrior’s ‘job’.
6) Write to them, show them the roots to the agenda, the globalization of our nation via education, let them know, it’s unconstitutional, it’s criminal and they shouldn’t be a part of it!
7) Don’t kowtow or get star struck by these candidates, don’t worry about making a scene. Remember who you are fighting for: our kids, our young people, our freedoms, our choices.
8) Pepper their websites with Anti Fed Ed truth, not mainstream subjective BS.
9) Participate in citizen forums, round-table discussions. If you didn’t know what you know now, think about all those around you who will remain clueless, unless you speak up. Use your circle of influence. Stay in communication. Host ‘Did Ya Know?’ type neighborhood events. While we’re about serious business, we can have some fun, too.
Use this type of event to bring to light the candidates on education. Compare notes and discuss maturely.

(Think along the lines of “Horton Hears a Who”, ALL our voices, united against the CCSS Machine is imperative!)

What if you don’t like any of the 20 candidates?
1) Choose the one most closely related to your beliefs and WORK with them to bring them around to the truth.
2) These people MUST be reminded they are seeking to represent WE the People, not the special interests groups, lobbyists, or Big Corporations.
3) If the candidate isn’t willing to work with you or accept the truth, then you know they are ‘bought and paid for’ by the CCSS Machine and move on.
4) IF you find that out, share the news, so others will know. It’s better to be called an idiot for being right than a silent partner in the grinding down of American education.
5) Apply any of the other action steps above you desire.
6) Inform and ‘use’ your circle of influence. Provide updates for them.

As of this article, I can find no Republican Debate schedule. Back in 2018, the National Republican Committee voted to disband the Debate organizers and team. That doesn’t mean there may be no debates, but it means we need to be watching for them.

I did find this website, which has both the Ds and Rs information in one location. Use at your discretion.

Use the Commission on Presidential Debates for news updates. I’ve embedded the link to their Debate Applicant locations. (*Note: no 2019 or 2020 sponsors have been announced, but look at previous sponsors. Are there CCSS Machine member groups represented? If so urge a non-bias organization to step up.) You can also access previous Debate transcripts. These might be helpful in writing your letters.

The location for the Republican National Convention is Charlotte, NC.
The location for the Democratic National Convention is Milwaukee, WI.
(*Note: Are there any Warriors near either of these cities? If so, we should plan to meet somewhere. I live in NC, and, it just so happens not too far from Charlotte. I’d love to see a group near Milwaukee, too. We could do live presentations or updates.) 


The Democrats will conduct their Convention in July 2020.
The Republicans will conduct theirs in August 2020.

Do You Know This GA?

Sure, we Anti CCSS/Fed Ed Warriors know there are General Assemblies of all kinds. We have them in our communities, our legislatures, and even global ones. But, did you know there is a CCSS Machine ‘General Assembly’ group?

How I Found Them:

As an avid researcher, it is easy to find one group when investigating another group. Add in an educational topic, and the groups appear to be not only tied at the hip, but plentiful.
My latest ‘connect the dots’ findings come from when I was looking into WhiteBoard Advisors and found General Assembly, a Global Educational Group.

In case you missed my Weekend News, my third point in the publication was to point you to the WhiteBoard Advisors and their May 2016 Education Insiders Report. I noticed in several instances on the W/A (as they refer to themselves) website, General Assembly was brought up. Thinking it meant that the W/A had a General Assembly (GA), I tried to find out who serves on it. However, what I found instead was the linkage between the two separate groups. All in the name of education reform, to boot! While there will be plenty to share about W/A in the near future, I will be using the rest of my Monday Musings to look at the General Assembly Educational Group.

The General Assembly:

galogoThe website: https://generalassemb.ly/
The Co-Founders: Matt Brimer and Jake Schwartz

Their message: General Assembly (GA) is a global educational company on a mission to empower a global community to pursue work they love. Focusing on the most relevant and in-demand skills across data, design, business and technology, GA is confronting a skills gap through best-in-class instruction and providing access to opportunities. GA works with students online and in person across 15 campuses in 4 continents. GA also works with companies as partners in course development and graduate placement as well as helps companies stay competitive in today’s digital landscape. Additionally, GA’s focus on affordable and accessible education combined with our education-to-employment approach is helping to create a diverse talent pipeline.”

Warriors, do you see the CCSS Machine agenda? I do!

GA’s tie to the WhiteBoard Advisors is the Sr. Vice President and Co-Director of Research for W/A, David DeSchryver. See below:

daviddes

To see the rest of DeSchryver’s bio: http://www.whiteboardadvisors.com/david-deschryver

To access the Beyond Bootcamps Report: General_Assembly_Beyond_Bootcamps_Policy_Report

What in the Report is of note?
1) Former Governor for NC, Bev Purdue (also a Senior Advisor for W/A) wrote the Forward in the Report. Bev Purdue, is a ‘card carrying member’ of the CCSS Machine. (*Note: her company DigiLearn is proof.)
2) The Report is from 2015.
3) It gives a ‘Top Ten’ list of policy making considerations to boost state and local economies via skill based education.
4) Both authors (DeSchryver and Kelly) are tied to other CCSS Machine member organizations. Kelly is tied to the Gates Foundation funded Education Week; DeSchryver has been in the thick of education reform since the NCLB (No Child Left Behind) days.
5) The Report falsely carries the notion of the ‘skills gap’ (*Note: I have shared documented evidence with you in the past that the skills gap is narrative of panic the CCSS Machine is using to further their involvement of workforce based, P3 (public private partnership) driven education.)
6) Cities are giving grants to GA to come and operate there. An example is New York City and can be seen on page 6. (A related NYC article: http://www.businessinsider.com/hustle-con-presentations-on-startups-from-nerdwallet-teespring-general-assembly-thirdlove-2015-4)
7) The Report details how GA is helping transform America’s economy.
8) GA is working with an official from the  U.S. Dept. of Ed to help accelerate learning.
9) The Report details how all this will be regulated in various States. Usually either the Workforce Training or the Higher Education Committees.
10) Employers are expected to not only be clear about their workforce needs, but to help in the credentialing process for education.
Lastly, of the Top Ten priorities for state and local policy makers? Outcomes! Not true education, but outcomes of our students…of all ages!

What organizations have invested in GA? In 2014, the following:
GSV Capital, Rethink Education, Maveron, and Western Technology Investment also participated, and GA’s funding now totals $49.3 million.” See: http://techcrunch.com/2014/03/07/general-assembly-raises-35m-led-by-new-investor-ivp-to-add-more-tech-courses-new-campuses/

In 2015, more investors jumped on the GA Bandwagon: “Our new investors are Advance Publications and Wellington Capital Management LLPSee: http://techcrunch.com/2015/09/30/general-assembly-raises-70-million-closing-in-on-25000-alumni-worldwide/

More Nebulous Connections:

From the list above, you may (or may not) see any further CCSS Machine connections. However, there are a couple which really stand out to me, GSV Capital and Rethink Education. In a short sentence, GSV is tied to the CCSS Machine through investments.
Rethink Education is tied back to W/A (WhiteBoard Advisors) via Ben Wallerstein, one of the co-founders. That said, let’s see what else I can point you to about each of THESE CCSS Machine member organizations.

GSV Capital: I first exposed this group by in 2014. See my article:
https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2014/09/16/from-the-files-tuesday-down-in-the-valley/
In this article, I showed you the ‘GSV’ in GSV Capital stands for Global Silicon Valley. The Capital’s goal? Re-imagining education…we are talking well-known heavy hitting big name CCSS Machine members are involved; we’re looking at least $4 trillion dollars in the global education market, Warriors! We are also looking at how this group wants to eliminate school boards in the process. To see where in the list of priorities THIS bombshell is, be sure to enlarge the picture when you read the above article.

Okay, that was 2014, what about GSV Capital has changed? From their Blog titled A2Apple,
“While there was plenty of competition for “mindshare”, last week we co-hosted the seventh annual ASU GSV Summit in San Diego, a gathering of leaders from across the global innovation economy with the mission of accelerating exponential ideas in education and talent. We welcomed over 3,500 entrepreneurs, educators, business leaders, policymakers, and investors, as well as 350 game-changing presenting companies.” (*Note: ASU is short for AZ State University, another well known CCSS Machine member.) See the screen shot below from the Blog.

GSVGates
Yes, Warriors, we knew Gates would be involved somehow. To read the rest of the article where both the excerpt and the picture are from: http://www.a2apple.com/change-your-mind/ (*Note: be sure to scroll down and see the pictures of the other speakers. Among them are Ted Mitchell, of the U.S. Dept. of Ed. and Dr. Condoleezza Rice of the Jeb Bush-backed FEE (Foundation for Excellence in Education. Be sure to look at the rhetoric and the research sources.)

By visiting the GSV Capital’s Strategy webpage, be sure you read the Making Private Public section to see where education comes into play. See:
http://gsvcap.com/about/strategy-purpose/

Rethink Education:
The website for this education venture investment firm: http://rteducation.com/
Tying them back to the W/A group is WhiteBoard Advisor co-founder, Jake Schwartz.(*Note: he can be found among the Rethink Education Portfolio Investors.)

Also among the Rethink Education folks, is Tom Segal, one of the co-founders. He is regularly featured on EdSurge (another CCSS Machine member). Tom also posts blog entries on the Rethink Education website. His entry about the beginning of Rethink is worth noting. Why? Both co-founders have a long history of ties to CCSS Machine connected entities, like Head Start and CUNY (NY). I have tied both of these back to the Machine in previous articles. As far as EdSurge’s ties: One of the Board members represents GSV Capital!

Closing:
Warriors, do you see the nebulous ties above? It is insane how these groups are so closely in-bred. Not only are we having to fight the federal and state levels of government over Common Core and all that goes with it, but we have a plethora of private groups strangling our voices! Our governments and our schools should NOT have ANY private investors except the parents! By this, I am not talking investing money, but parents investing with their hearts because they are simply trying to do the best for their students. ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), and the HEA (Higher Education Act) mock us. The P3s mock us. The CCSS Machine not only mocks us, but is doing its best to silence us!

Be sure to note that I will continue to delve into this subject and report what I uncover. I will also be exposing more about WhiteBoard Advisors soon.
