Oh, Geez…

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!

G7, Group of 7:

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 meeting was 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 G7 meeting, here’s a preview from the IISD (International Institute for the Sustainable Development Goals). France holds the current Presidency.

From the Global Governance Project, this preview of France will be pushing at the August 2019 meeting:

What US official will be attending the 2019 G7 meeting? We don’t know yet. But, someone, or, several leaders will. Why? To continue America’s commitment to being a global giant.

The G8, Group of 8:

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.)

The ILO, International Labor Organization:

Warriors, if you’d like to see what else the oldest arm of the UN’s up to, visit the ILO website.

The ILO’s Washington DC office recently completed a Denver, CO Conference. If you missed that news, or, how the ‘future of work’ is shaping up, go here to read it all.

Related Resources:

1) To see the SPIEF Youth Forum’s program (chock full of CCSS Machine/global agenda), visit this page.

2) The SPIEF’s commitment to the SDGs.

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.

6) How Japan, via the G20, will support the UN’s Global Education for All. (*Note: be sure to see all the related documents for the main G20 June 2019 themes.)

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!

The Best For The Worst

Welcome back, my fellow Anti Fed Ed/CCSS Warriors!

I’ve returned home after a bittersweet journey. That said, let’s dive in, shall we?!
*******************************************************************************

In playing ‘catch up’ on the latest education news, I found this ‘lovely’ rotten apple:
The CCSSO (Council of Chief State School Officers) has been given an award for being one of the BEST non-profit groups in our nation!

If you missed this news, it is no surprise. It was announced on the CCSSO’s Press Release Page on 4/1/17 (aka: April Fool’s Day). CCSSO’s Twitter account waited to ‘tweet’ the news the same day as the first ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) deadline expired. In fact, if you use Twitter and wish to see all the ‘cheering tweets’ CCSSO gave each State as they ‘lined up’ for ESSA (per the U.S. Dept. of Ed’s website), find them here.

Warriors, I hope you see not only the irony of the dates used, but the groups involved. It’s been known for quite some time how tied to the CCSS Machine the CCSSO is. The same is true for the U.S. Dept. of Education, too.
**************************************************************

So, what group(s) are involved in recognizing the CCSSO as ‘one of the best’?

 


The NonProfit Times:

First, here’s a quote from the CCSSO Press Release about the “The NonProfit Times”: “This is the second year that CCSSO made the list of 50 organizations recognized. The NonProfit Times partnered with Best Companies Group, Inc. on this report.”

NPTimes

What we need to know about the NonProfit Times is this: It is a publication of the BridgeTower Media group. BridgeTower Media uses its’ research arm, the Best Companies Group, Inc., for ’employee satisfaction’ data collection.

Crossing Over On A Bridge:

BridgeTower Media is the business arm of GateHouse Media: “BridgeTower Media is the business-to-business media division of Gatehouse Media, the largest publisher of daily newspapers in the United States.” Source

However, Warriors, BridgeTower is a ‘rebrand’ in business news! See below:

B2B
See the rest of the article.

Enter The Warriors:

So, how does this involve what we are experiencing in classrooms? Why as an Anti Fed Ed/CCSS Warrior should I take notice?

1) Technology is really big deal in modern education. Technology means data collection, sharing, and, power. Power for those who capture it/loss of power in our privacy. So, apply the following in that context.

 SoftBank has a “Vision Plan. Technology is the root of the Plan. Also involved in the “Plan” is Saudi Arabia. The Plan includes increasing globally led AI (Artificial Intellegience). Apple, Inc. has already jumped into the Plan. Apple, Inc. is also part of the CCSS Machine’s overreach into educational settings.

GateHouse Media is considered America’s largest publisher of daily news. GateHouse, thus has tremendous influence in our local areas. Consider this, the single largest investor (Fortress Investment Group, LLC)  in GateHouse Media was sold to a Japanese based investment group (SoftBank Group Corp.) earlier this year!

2) Warriors, a globally based investment group has been able to get their collective foot further into our American doorways by making such a move. The evidence for globally-led influence in American education is becoming stronger every day.

3) Notes: Technology-based education was given the go-ahead with the passage of WIOA (2014’s Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), STEM Act of 2015 (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), and the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act, 2015). Technology based education in the HEA (Higher Education Act, 2008) will most certainly received the ‘go-ahead’ for streamlined education when it is re-authorized.

Current leadership in D.C. is ‘hell-bent’ on expanding technology, especially in classrooms. A huge portion of federal funds has been earmarked for technology purchases and upgrades via ESSA.

So, how does all this tie back to the CCSSO’s ‘award’?!

You have a  massive global group with plenty of CCSS Machine ties congratulating ANOTHER CCSS Machine member for being a best ‘non profit’ group. Non profit groups have been used for years to usher in the education reform.

We are on a  fast track set for meeting the U.N.’s global education goals as written out in the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)!

Technology will render ‘school choice’ a thing of the past. ESSA’s implementation will render true ‘school choice’ as a thing of the past.

The SDGs in our educational resources.

Closing:

Warriors,  the CCSSO should receive no reward for anything it does.  By the acknowledgement as one of the best places to work, according to the NonProfit Times, those employees are rubbing our noses it what they do for the CCSSO. Helping lead the way in un-Americanizing education.

There is a place for CCSSO and every other CCSS Machine member group.  It’s called “Traitors Gate”.
