A Resolution

**Special note: My thoughts and prayers to all those somehow impacted by Hurricane Dorian.**

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I hope your Labor Day Weekend was a nice one. When I last wrote, I shared that during September, I’d devote it to the subject of workforce development in education.

Why? Because the U. S. Senate has declared (via a Resolution) that Sept. 2019 is “Workforce Development” Month. senres19
What’s so wrong with that? Well, Warriors, for one thing if this were simply about your freedom of choice as to what type of job you had, that’d be one thing. But, via this Resolution and other pieces of legislation like it, we see the federal government using education as the springboard for embracing a global workforce agenda. How do I know that? Look below:

 

mullercore
(Quote is from “New Man” Magazine, August 1995, pages 85-86)

Warriors, from what I could find, this “New Man” Magazine is out of print. It’s also a Christian publication. Where did I find the information? This particular post available on Steemit concerning the evil behind the U.N. (United Nations). What’s interesting to me, at least, is if you go back and read Dr. Muller’s essays from the early 90s, you don’t see a harsh quote like the above image, but a theme of ‘peace’. If you read all of the essays, you’ll also notice his ideas about peace are agenda filled, not biblically based. If you’ve not seen or heard of Dr. Muller’s World Core Curriculum (which the workforce and peace are built into the education), go here.

If you have about an hour and a half, this 2016 video lecture also featured the Muller quote about steering children toward the workforce. The entire lecture is quite eye-opening, but to get to the remaking of our nation’s education, go to the 45:00 minute mark and listen. Especially at 45:48.

Since a barely educated workforce is the ‘new education’ Muller was promoting and Congress is embracing, is what we are seeing happen, it’s NO surprise that the CCSS Machine has used anything to convince us workforce prep MUST be included in ALL educational instances. For all ages, too.

workforcenochoice

Warriors, if you’ve not heard this song, I encourage you to listen and share. It’s called the OBE Song (Outcome Based Education). OBE is also known as CBE, or Competency Based Education. CBE is exactly what workforce prep/education is. No more, no less.

CBE/OBE is also known as CTE or Career Tech Education. Congress LOVES CTE. So does our President.

foxxed

Warriors, I urge you to read the article I’ve embedded with the word “President”. Why? In it you’ll find all the ways ‘workforce development’ is hiding in plain sight throughout our education system. For ‘cradle to grave’. “Lifelong learning” is a trap.

lifelong

While the S Resolution 304 cannot be overturned, we CAN contact our Senators and Representatives and demand they STOP supporting federal overreaches in education. We need academics, NOT workforce development, in our schools.

Closing:

Warriors, all this month, I’m going to continue exposing the workforce shift in education. If you missed my weekly “Rotten to the Core” Wednesday interview, we kicked this theme off with looking at S Res. 304 and more.

Ed’s Potpurri

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, while the main stream news tries to overload us with ‘squirrels’, the U.S. Dept. of Education is carrying on the status quo.

Should THIS be main stream information? I believe so. Why? Because everyday the status quo in ‘education’ is carried out, millions of lives are being harmed.

THAT, my fellow Warriors, should be OUR only news!

I believe if it were our only news, we’d be more inclined to jump in and save our nation’s citizens.

MLKquote

Think of it this way. Potpourri is used to help rooms smell good. Some potpourri mixes are pleasing to our noses, while others assault our noses with a bad smell. Not everyone can be around potpourri, if it contains something they are allergic to.

goodsmell

When the CCSS Machine rolled into America, it replaced the good, quality education (pleasing potpourri) with a stench SO bad, it’s smelled world-wide. The abysmal education we see trotted out isn’t for everyone, either, however, it is all we’re getting.

rottennut

For the remainder of this article, I’ll share with you some of the latest news from the U.S. Dept. of Education. I warn you, the ‘smell’ is vile.

 

Ed’s “Smell” in Transmedia circa 2015 To Present:

In an email from the U.S. Dept. of Ed, sent last week (Aug.2019), several items were brought up.
While a new TV ‘transmedia’ (short for “transmitted media”) was released, the link used in the email took you to what you see below. There was no press release date, so it wasn’t until you began to read the information about ‘transmedia’ that the 2015 date shows up as ‘new’.
By the way, the RtL (Ready to Learn) TV can be seen on PBS (already a CCSS Machine member group). To see the entire page (be sure to read the ‘about RtL’ portion at the bottom of the page. You’ll spot the source of the ‘smell’: school readiness.)

transmedia


Ready to Learn TV got its start based off money and policy. It also gears itself around the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandate for 365, 24/7 access to educational media. This ‘access’ is to encompass EVERY school choice, even homeschools.

While we can trace the money back to the CCSS Machine (includes WestEd), where did the policy come from? Northwestern University! Back in 2015, I shared with you  the Northwestern University’s Kellogg Center CCSS Machine ties. For RtL TV, the Northwestern department is the Communications Dept.

Warriors, let’s also see if we can spot the agenda’s smell by the term ‘transmedia’. With all the confusion surrounding ‘trans’ in other education subjects, won’t a move like this help further the confusion?

Ed’s Globalistic “Opportunity Zones”:

Also from that email last week, was the news that Sec. DeVos wants to enfold the Presidential Initiative for Opportunity Zones into education.

edopzone

Warriors, this absolutely smells of treason!! How? First, ESSA is a K-12th grade law which codified WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act). WIOA had Opportunity Zones already in place! ESSA also mandated regionalized education. Regionalism is 100% United Nations. As far as education goes, across our nation, the regionalism is well entrenched through College and Career Readiness hubs. Secondly, this move to align education to job opportunities supports the G20 ed/labor document DeVos signed on behalf of our nation.

Warriors, we have an opportunity to weigh in on DeVos’s desires, but we MUST act by August 28th!! As of this article, only 3 other citizens have spoken out. Two of those 3 are citing corruption. Mine cited the uniting of education and labor is treasonous and illegal. You’ll find the Federal Registry link above (opportunity zone initiative is highlighted for you). 

g20skills

Ed’s Update To Data Mining:

Warriors, we know the ‘smell’ of data mining well. Of all the rotten potpourri scents, this one is the stinker of them all!

edelludes

Warriors, to further learn about the Ellucian Banner System (supposedly will make higher education stronger), go here.

UNdatatrack

Ed;  As If America’s Not Global Enough Already:

The folks at the U.S. Dept. of Education are laying out what they hope is a teasing scent to entice us to look toward International Education Week (11/18-22/19).

iew2019

When you visit the embedding link (above), be sure to listen to the Secretary of the State’s video message. In it, he claims international education will help promote American values all over the world.

I ask you, Warriors, how is this possible when our very values are being thrown away and replaced with the United Nations’?

The, if you can actually stand listening to Sec. DeVos, you need to. Her fragrance of globalism almost wafts off the screen! Listen for ‘lifelong learning’ and being career ready. DeVos’s direction in education is steering right into the global workforce.
(Note: Below, OECD is the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development)

Closing:

Warriors, if your nose if full of bad smells by now, I’d like to invite you to refresh your sense of smell with some truth.

1) We the People are more in number than the US federal government; we need to act on this.

2) Everything the U.S. Dept. of Education is doing, has done, and is planning is illegal. Everything they are doing spills over into every other federal agency.
We should revolt against this.

3) We are governed by the U.S. Declaration of Independence, NOT the United Nations declarations of conformity. We need to be persistent with this message in reaching our officials.

4) We should no longer call any educrat, regardless of office status, a ‘leader’. Where they are leading is NOT where we should go.
Leaders should be honest and respecting of their followers.
No one in the CCSS Machine is a leader to us. No one in the CCSS Machine respects us.
They are underminers of our nation and destroyers of our future as free citizens. They are our enemies. We need to act like it.
We will change nothing in this War Vs the Core by playing nice.

5) We are the protectors of our children, we cannot allow them to suffer under this educratic takeover anymore.

*Join me on 8/14, at 3:15 pm (EDT) on Facebook Live! Just go to my Common Core Diva page. We’ll be discussing how the CCSS Machine see your child. It’s an interactive discussion. We’ll use this worksheet, so print it out and let’s gather together to fight back.

When Push Comes To Shove

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, it’s hard to believe, but school is officially in session, at least, in some States. It’s the first part of August, Warriors. Kids should still be on vacation!
Teachers should be able to relish the last few days of personal time before heading back to the classrooms. Parents should be able to make some last of the summer memories which are rushed before the class bells ring.

eclipseed
However, as the CCSS Machine grinds on, we find that schools are beginning earlier and earlier. Some States even had ‘year ’round’ schools. I know one former city I lived in, here in NC, had schools which operated 3 weeks on, 3 weeks off. That was for an entire year’s calendar. I need to point out, this was BEFORE the (ESSA) Every Student Succeeds Act was passed. It was also the years just before Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were unleashed on our nation. 

What’s the point in all this? It’s simply another way for the ‘birth to death’ or ‘cradle to grave’ workforce education system to survive. By schools starting earlier and earlier, we’ve seeing children robbed of their childhood; parents beaten down that somehow (and at any cost) their child MUST get ahead and beat everyone else’s to that job or career; and, we’re seeing teachers undermined at every step to let ‘kids just be kids’. What’s at the bottom of this?!

The UN/UNESCO and CCSS  Machine’s alignment to the OECD’s ‘lifelong learning’ so you can ‘learn to earn’All of this has been openly embraced by the US, current Administration included.
(*Note: UN is the United Nations; UNESCO is the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization; OECD is the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.)

In other words, Warriors, your child, and mine, are money makers, not for themselves, but for their masters. The horror is, this system is not only after our young age students, it’s after our older age students, and, our adults. Quite plainly, the workforce shift in education will either train or re-train each and every one of us. A great way to achieve this, align secondary education to post-secondary education. (After all, page 17 of ESSA final law version. Page 33 of the ESSA Final Conference Report) plain stated that.

workforceweb
While the 9 federal levels are easy to spot, look at the variety of other agencies which are not easy to identify as connected.

(*Note: this image, above, cited HR 5 and S 1177, both of these were combined into one bill and would be renamed Every Student Succeeds Act. The HEA, Higher Education Act, is in the process of being re-written to be re-authorized by 2020.)

A Local Push And Shove:

Warriors, to give you an idea of the alignment between secondary education and higher education, this made the local news.

isspush
(article source)

Warriors, do you see the ‘early college’ above? That’s also called ‘dual enrollment’ or DE. DE is accessible to not only public school students, but ALL education choices, including homeschooling. Dual enrollment also got the ESSA push/shove to blend workforce education in. Especially through community colleges. ALL community colleges in the US are part of the CCSS Machine

Now, since I showed you the Iredell-Statesville news, the Mooresville schools are in a separate system called the Mooresville Graded School District. However, MGSD is also served by the Mitchell Community College. There are 2 campuses for Mitchell, one in Mooresville (within walking distance of my home) and one in Statesville, about 15 miles away. So, all MSGD schools are also starting early. Tomorrow, Tuesday, August 6th, in fact. 

More Pushing/Shoving:

Is there a partnership between your State’s Dept. of Public Instruction (aka: State Dept. of Education) and the Community Colleges? There is in NC. Here’s a screen shot from a 2014 presentation for CCP (Career and College Promise) and the CTE (Career Tech Education) showing the push and shove for workforce education:

ncctepush

(*Note: College Promise is a federal program, not simply a NC one.)

Both CCP and CTE are available and being pushed and shoved on all education choices, especially homeschoolers.

Parents from all educational choices are flocking to these programs. Why? It must the be ‘My child’s got to get ahead of everyone else NOW!’ or “It’s an opportunity I never had.” If it isn’t either of those, the biggest CCSS Machine hype being fed to parents is,“It’s FREE or low-cost!” As I’ve said before, who doesn’t love a coupon to ‘save money’?!

Warriors, what has happened to us? That we’d be so willing to seek a government directed ‘security’ and lose our freedoms in the process?! Are we truly seeing what the education/workforce shift is turning us into?! I pray eyes are opened soon!

DwightquoteThe one thing President Eisenhower didn’t state, that we can add, is education! In fact, part of the CCSS Machine’s rhetoric included in ESSA is for students who have been in jail or, are ‘at-risk’!

How Is Your State Spinning the Push?

Below, is the supposed helpful results of a bond for NC’s state-wide use. When the ConnectNC Bond was being trotted out as a great economic move for NC, as well as updating vital infrastructure, it was uncovered that the citizens of NC had been lied to.
Much of the money went to community colleges. 

connectingnc

Why would NC be so willing to do all this? Sure, the almighty dollar is pushing our leaders, but the more underlying agenda is pointing us to what we’re seeing in other States, education/workforce community alignment. Also, seen as a mandate in ESSA.

Another reason NC’s shoving our students of all ages into the workforce? Economy and a better ‘bottom line’ for those who employ you. ESSA has it embedded in its ‘regionalism’ for educated workforce. Of course, ‘regionalism’ is another tie to the UN/UNESCO/OECD set-up for Americans. Shoving students into work too early, is also a danger. It’s the age old, too much, too soon.

Part of the shift toward workforce education also impacts where we live. Just last week, I showed you how Mooresville is using an inclusionary zoning law to set up workforce housing within a mile of a post-secondary, for profit skill based educational institution. These zones and others like them absolutely embed UN led mandates (aka: directives) into our lives. 

Again, you may not live in NC, but use this information as an example to look in your State! What’s happening in your town? Your county?

freeamericans

Closing:

Warriors, I hope you will think hard and long about the sheer proportions of freedoms we are losing. Sure, we don’t want our students indoctrinated with political views we don’t support. We don’t wish to have our students over-sexualized before they can understand.

So WHY are we NOT stopping to pause and look at the workforce preparation or indentured servitude? The seamless transition from education to workforce is 100% in place. By starting school years early, we are seeing this play out in a ‘new’ way.

This, too, is indoctrination! I would also ask you to consider yourselves. How would you be re-trained to fit within the CCSS Machine’s ‘birth to death’ workforce system? Would you go quietly into this type of conformity or would you fight kicking and screaming?

IF we’re serious about being against Fed Led Education, then we must fight ALL its angles, resist ALL its tools, and, save our nation!

Agenda In America

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, it’s “Made in America” week, as proclaimed by the President of the USA. It’s also an opportunity to trot out every supposed positive move about job creation, the booming economy, and, innovation. The agenda supporting ALL of these 3 things?
Workforce aligned education!

essagoal

Workforce aligned education is something the President has gone out of his way to not only continue, but increase its power. Something VERY unconstitutional, too.

Warriors, as we know, the President is not the only DC official to fully back workforce aligned education. Congress LOVES it. The CCSS Machine loves it, too.

Educrats and corporate sell-outs all across our nation, from BOTH major political parties openly embrace workforce aligned education. If you don’t believe me, read the evidence, here.

formerusa

As we also know, workforce aligned education has been re-branded about as many times as “Common Core State Standards” has been. Workforce aligned education is CTE: Career Tech Education; STEM/STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, (the Arts), and, Math; CCR: College and Career Readiness: PL: Personalized Learning; CBE/OBE: Competency Based Education aka Outcome Based Education, and whatever apprenticeship/internship or workstudy program your State has attached to all of these above

Why or how? The federal overreaches between the U.S. Dept. of Labor and U.S. Dept. of Education. The workforce based alignment includes data mining, data tracking for life, assessments which pigeon-hole students of all ages and school choices for work/career tracks.These are also known by Career Clusters/Career Pathways, and Lifelong Learning.

foxxed

The root of ALL of the workforce based/aligned education is the UN, United Nations.
Especially through their SDGs, Sustainable Development Goals.

The support for the root of workforce aligned education, in America, is ‘off the charts’.

From one of my “Prudence Files” articles, the green denotes workforce ties.

currentfeds1

This means the agenda, is also ‘off the charts’. What’s worse, Warriors, is this will be a driving force behind our upcoming elections in 2020.* Agenda dressed up as success is really a national failure. (*Note: the link above is Part 5 of my Prudence Files series, detailing all the Presidential candidates. You can easily access Parts 1-4, from this article as well.)
Warriors
, again, green denotes the workforce alignment support. 
statelocal1

So, if  you are celebrating the supposed good news about “Made in America” week,  stop and consider what it is you are allowing to be carried out. Think about what it is you are really endorsing. Then, look at your children, your grandchildren, your young neighbors, and, little ones you meet around town. Look them in the eye and let them know that “Made in America” is really indentured servitude.

workforcekid

*Note: if you are upset by this article, I invite you to join me to fight back. This doesn’t have to be our children’s future. If we continue to cheer on the agenda, that’s exactly what we’ll get. If we wish to remain a free country, we’ll fight with tenacity.

fire
Fighting so ALL may be independent of the CCSS Machine!

Warriors, I am but a mere messenger, I did not create this agenda, nor do I support its existence. As you know, I’ve  held ANY political figure or political wannabe to a critical standard, as is our citizenship duty. Regardless of political party, this agenda is thriving.

“The HC Police”

**Author’s Note: An in-depth report on S 406, the White House, Congress, and globalizing education expressly for workforce needs in a nanny controlled environment.**
*********************************************************

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have you heard of S 406? It’s a federal Senate Bill which just passed the Senate floor. This means the next stop is in the House. What does S 406 do?

It isn’t what the Bill ‘does’, it’s what it creates..more federal control over us.


S 406 “Federal Rotational Cyber Workforce Program Act of 2019”:

This “Act” will create an executive agency filled with a “Chief Human Capital Officers Council”. The ‘cyber’ portion refers to the federal employees overseeing cyber security, data collection, and all that intersects them.

S 406 also embeds 2 previous laws.

The Chief Human Capital Officers were ‘created’ in an Act from 2002. 

hcpolice
(Source)

Warriors, what do these Officers do? (I’m calling them the ‘HC Police’ or “Human Capital Police”.)
Basically: set a workforce development strategy; assess people and plan their future in the ‘policing’; align human resources to meet the ‘outcomes’ of the strategy; use ‘best practices’ and ‘benchmarked standards’; ‘measure the police’s intellectual capital’ and link data to performance and growth of their position.

If that sounds a bit confusing, think of it this way, those who are policing us have to be just as aligned and tested as our students. The biggest attraction for the “HC Police”? A love of data and computers. Which leads to ‘coding’. Cybersecurity thrives on coding.

Warriors, ‘coding’ is a tool of the CCSS Machine for students as young as preschool:

codebabies
(Original source, added emphasis is mine)
If you cannot read what’s in the red box, “Preschoolers are digital natives, they don’t know a life without smartphones, tablets, and computers; or cartoons on demand.” This website goes on to state that ‘coding’ isn’t just for older kids, and introduces the subject as a game.

Since coding exists to breed all kinds of workers who will track us to no end (aka ‘cybersecurity’, “IT”, etc.) there had to be a law for this special arm of the CCSS Machine’s agenda.

The Cyber Workforce? A 2015 Law ‘created’ that.

cyberwork

(Source)

Warriors, what does the existence of this law do? First, it was embedded in a budget (appropriations) law. Secondly, it set up a national initiative for cybersecurity education.
Third, because it’s a federal law which hasn’t been repealed, it’s active in 2019.

It embedded ‘coding’ as a way of life in education AND jobs. You’ll find ‘cyber’ is embedded in the budget law 428 times. ‘Education’ is embedded 280 times. Where the two intersect is in Section N. Pages 695-797 will show you the 14 ways in which education and the U. S. Dept. of Education were mandated.  

But, wait, don’t we need protection from hackers? Isn’t that the main goal of cybersecurity? Warriors, protecting us from hackers is a goal, but not as much of the main goal as we’ve been told. Here’s what else this Cyber Workforce Assessment Act set us up for:

a) Cyber Corps Scholars (and scholarship programs) Ties it to the NSF (National Science Foundation) and the National Intelligence agencies.
b) Funds for cyber (on line) upgrades under ‘school improvement’, ‘school safety’, ‘education tech support’, redesigned schools, ‘safe schools’ and Project SERV
c) Will use SSI funds (tied to Title 1 and IDEA funds/programs)
d) Will use funds for health care (also ties to ‘c’)
e) Will track and involve the IES (Institute for Educational Sciences)
f) Impacts the Information and Education Exchange Act. This 1948 law is still in existence and set the framework for international information partnerships. Those partnerships in 2019? Data sharing across the globe! (See the section below for more information)
g) Forces all federal agencies directly involved in security or related to security to be involved in data sharing and collection. Said data will be available to third parties and private contractors of the agencies choosing.

UNdatatrack

So, since all this was previously set up, how will the 116th’s Congress Bill (S 406) increase any or all of the  laws above?

From the ‘HC Police’ stand point:
a) Rotates who’s watching us and tracking us.
b) Spreads the HC Police across all fed agencies.
c) The agencies determine position for HC Police within their domain.
d) All involved determine the level of watching/tracking.
e) U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security dictates all policies and procedures (updates as needed, if needed). Parts of the policies and procedures are Career Tracks in education (all levels).
f) Uses ‘accountability’ (tracking and assessments) to be transparent.
g) Fed agencies can partner HC Police and set policies/procedures.
h) Locks in merit based employment for each rotation (180-365 days).
i) Reports activities to GAO (Gen. Acct. Office). If GAO deems program a ‘success’ HC Police rotations may be extended.
j) Will assess HC Police for proficiency in IT and skill levels completed.
k) Gives a ‘sunset’ of 5 years from time of the Act becoming law. (Means ending in 2024)

Okay, Warriors, ask yourselves this: the U.S. Government has already set us up to be spied upon via the Patriot Act, FEPA (most recently). It’s been proven that the government is a TERRIBLE privacy keeper when it comes to our data, so HOW will having national HC Police improve our privacy?  Quite frankly, it won’t improve our privacy at all. It WILL confine us even more..and it’s in the House of Representatives for their tweaking or approval!

Think how the AI and 5G technologies are already ruining education, as well as our nation. 
datagaps

A Blast From Our Past:

The 1948 Information and Education Exchange Act (aka the Smith-Mundt Act). If you do a general internet search for the S-M Act, you’ll see that it’s basically a propaganda law for public diplomacy. However, knowing what we know about global education overreach, look what I found from the “Information and Education Exchange Act”:

1948

“Information service to disseminate abroad information about the US”
“Educational exchange”
“Interchange of persons, knowledge, and skills”
“Rendering of technical and other services”
NOTICE Section 3!!!

Warriors, the Information and Ed Exchange Act (S-M Act) was updated in 2012. The amendments made to the 1948 version only impacted broadcasting and free speech. Section 3 remains; as do the information and knowledge combined with technology. Section 402 is also still as it was from the original.

So, the S 406 (116th Congress) gives us a window of 5 years, which means 2024. Is there a global education significance involved?

Below is a screen shot from one of my 2017 articles about the US being ‘graded’ on their adherence to the SDGs.

Warriors, SGD #8 is ‘decent work for all’. You won’t see ‘work’ or ‘jobs’ below, but jobs and work are woven into what you do see:

A Crystal Ball Future?

From the AP and Business Wire, this 2018 article lays out for you that yes, by 2024, the global data giants will have complete control of the ‘information sharing’. Yes, Warriors, these global data giants already have a great deal of control, but it will only increase. How and why? Innovations and coders to implant the innovations. The US is among the regions included in the research.

Those data giants included (not limited to) in the Research Report the article tell you about are:
Microsoft
Apple, Inc
IBM
Google
EdX (on-line colleges/universities and their courses) Features Harvard and MIT.
Byju’s (ties to Chan Zuckerburg’s Initiative) An on-line learning system for higher education high stakes assessments.
(*Note: the Research company wants you to purchase the entire Report. Prices start at $3,500.00 and go up. You can read a general overview for free. Be sure to click on “Table of Contents”. All the education alignment is in Chapter 6.)

On the AI (artificial intelligence) spectrum for the future:

aied
(Original source, emphasis is mine)

We can’t leave out the U.S. Dept. of Education’s forecast for education by 2024:

ed2024

By the way, Warriors, IHS Global, Inc. is mentioned 21 times in this Report.
If you’d like to see the 2018’s U.S. Dept. of Ed predictions for education by 2026, go here.


Briefly, by 2026-27 school year: 2 percent increase nationwide in school enrollment for PreK to 8th grade; 8% increase in high school; 33 million teachers; 5% increase in high school graduates; cost of education (taxpayer burden) $670 billion (19% increase); and the cost per pupil: $12,900.00.

The PISA (Program for International Skills Assessment) for 2024 is already in the planning stages, Warriors. The focus? Science and digital technology.

What about NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress)? Here’s their assessment area focus.
You can see the National Governor’s Board NAEP focus areas for every year up to 2024, here.

The Human Capital “Forecast”:

Well, we’ve seen what Congress is up to, read what the CCSS Machine is predicting about education and the all encompassing aspect of the UN’s SDGs in it all, so what’s the future of ‘human capital’?

2009humancapital

(Source; note that this 2015 article laid out the 4 pillars used to measure ‘human capital’.)
**********************
SHRM (Society of Human Resources Management) is a US/global group founded in 1948 (same year as the Information and Education Exchange Act/S-M Act). While I couldn’t find evidence of a direct connection, it’s not hard to see how ‘human resources’ and ‘human capital’ are intertwined.

shrm
(Source for event sponsors )
(Source for scholarship sponsors)

The Forecast you see in the screen shot is from 2013 and was predicting workforce and human capital up until 2024. There is a more recent Report, as well. However, I wanted you to see a few things in the 2013 Report.
1) look at the title highlighted in red (‘behavioral competencies’)
2) most of us will have to work well past the accepted retirement age
3) there’s a huge skills gap and jobs are being filled; most jobs are replacement positions (meaning when one person ages out, another, younger person steps in)
4) STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) in America isn’t stacking up to global counterparts
5) our economy will suffer tremendously if we don’t address 1-4.

As far as SHRM’s view on ‘workforce readiness’? You can find an entire tool kit for globally competitive skilled based workers here. If you’d like to see their 2017 State of the Society Report, go here.

**************
Another Report (Deloitte Review) from 2017 states that we are aging, but we’re also learning more and spending more time being educated. Warriors, this is a subjective view. No, we are not seeing students learn more, we are seeing them forced to have education become workforce readiness!

The stark reality, is that ‘human capital’ is part of ‘lifelong learning’!

lifelong

From 2010, this book detailed the vast amount of globalism America plans for and buys. You won’t see the U.S. Dept. of Education mentioned, but you will see the U.S. Dept. of Labor and its international membership. If you read the acknowledgements, you’ll see a few CCSS Machine member groups. Read the list of acronyms and you’ll find several more CCSS Machine member groups.

buyplan

So, seeing that the U.S. Dept. of Labor is a member of the ILO (International Labor Organization), how connected to the UN/Global ed/labor agenda are we?

ilo
Warriors, the DW4SD (Decent Work for Sustainable Development) will impact American legislation AND policy. After all, the UN’s aim to indoctrinate workforce based education depends on policy changes. What are the changes? Have we already seen this put in place or will we see soon, especially with S 406?

1) better jobs
2) internationally aligned labor standards
3) social protection
4) sustainable enterprises
5) rural economy
6) informal economy
7) labor inspections
8) what’s unacceptable work
9) labor migration
10) employer/worker organizations

These 10 ‘planks’ fit within the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Warriors, education is Goal #4.

Closing:

What are we to do, Warriors? Contact the House of Representatives and demand a ‘no’ to S 406!

We cannot settle on simply shutting down the U.S. Dept. of Education. The U.S. Dept. of Labor is JUST as unconstitutional!

DeVos’s G20 agreement calls for ed/labor to be merged. DC has also made plans to merge the two UNCONSTITUTIONAL departments.

***THIS fits precisely with, not only the UN’s SDGs, BUT the S 406 plans!***

From 1995:
Look at the previous plans for an ed/labor merger.  Obviously,  the  GAO(Gov.  Acct.  Office)  didn’t  see  a true  ‘savings’,  or  otherwise,  the  merger  would  have  happened.(Source)

From 2018, The ‘new’ ed/labor merger plan in visual form. NPR reported it as a money saving move. The White House sold it as a way to help the country improve.


Warriors, this still doesn’t END federal (or global) overreaches in education, it simply shuffles the deck. Instead of 2 unconstitutional federal agencies, one MASSIVE one.
Just after that White House news, Warriors stepped into action. There was a petition to halt merger plans! There was push-back!!
The image below is from that push-back:

Do you like that America is planning AND paying for globalization? Do you like seeing Acts like S 406 or other Administrative moves to ruin education?
If not, speak up, speak out! 4kusa

 

A Monumental “Crush”

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, as promised in my last article, a close up look at Maryland’s education system. Remember, Marc Tucker dropped a huge hint about this in that 4/23/19 seminar promoting his new book.
I highlighted his comments about it below:
423roundBefore we get too much further, I wanted to see if MD was about the size of any of the “Tucker approved” Top Performing Countries he’s so convinced we need to copy.

After all, since the CCSS Machine is going to such lengths to make us global, we will need to see what’s in store. Can we find any clues as to HOW Maryland is about to become a national show-off?

Estonia:

I found Estonia is about the size of MD. (Estonia is #2 on the Tucker list). If you aren’t sure about Estonia’s education system, I found out it’s a ministry of the government.
Officially called the Republic of Estonia’s Ministry of Education and Research.
If you’re curious about how their school system works, the Ministry has put together a ‘cutesy’ video.

If you look around their website, a bit, the Estonian Ministry has more information. Like their ‘lifelong learning’ plan.

estlife
Warriors, if you notice, ages 65 and up are not included in this 2020 Plan. Why? Those older than 64 are encouraged to become ‘working pensioners’. According to their plan for seniors, you’ll need to still be a productive and contributing member of society, but the government will provide some of your income. You are still expected to go to school, too.
(If you look in the Estonia 2020 Plan’s definitions, you’ll find out all the difference locations the country counts as ‘schools’.)
The Plan for seniors is NOT a Estonia one, my followers. This ‘senior plan’ is called the Madrid International Plan of Action on Aging (MIPAA). The UN adopted this back in 2002.

Going back to education in Estonia and what possibly could be found in Maryland, ‘the village’ concept is applied there. I didn’t see a school board mentioned once. I did see a village/community based commission. These are designed to keep school creative and learning centered.

You’ll also find that Estonia is big on ‘school choice’. The ‘choice’ is largely funded by the government. Will we find this in Maryland, too? Warriors, we know the federal government, here in the US, is pushing for billions of taxpayer dollars for funding ‘choice’.

Maryland And Estonia: 

MDES
Warriors, you’re seeing correctly. MD and Estonia have been partners since the early days following The Cold War.

In 2009, The MEEC (Maryland/Estonia Exchange Council) increased its efforts in education.

(*Note: if you wish to see the long list of overreaches into many school choices the OTHER MEEC (Maryland Education Enterprise Consortium) has, go here.)
************************************
Not too terribly long before America was given the WIOA of 2014, (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014), MD and Estonia signed an agreement to mutually share education and workforce programs.

Maryland And Marc Tucker:

Warriors, Tucker, himself, was bragging (just the other day) on how MD is soon to be in the national news.
So, when did he visit MD? EdWeek has a 2017 article Marc Tucker wrote about his appearance in their legislature. His entire point? Revolutionizing education funding for the 21st Century.

In this 2018 Report from the Commission on Innovation and Excellence in EducationTucker’s name appears 16 times. You’ll also see Linda Darling- Hammond and Dr. Chester Finn’s names, too. If you search the over 100 pages, you’ll see that Tucker spoke on every one of his 9 Blocks for Maryland. (see below in “Related Resources”, I illustrated the 9 Blocks). From this Report, it appears the Commission had been meeting since 2016.

In 2018, the Baltimore Sun published an article where the Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education was struggling with how to address ‘at risk’ students. Among the ‘solutions’ was RtI, Response to Intervention. RtI is part of the mental health grab you’ll find in ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). Tucker’s name appeared in this article as well.

Also from 2018, Johns Hopkins School of Education published a 16 page report on how flawed Tucker’s system was (and still is). The irony is that Johns Hopkins is also in the CCSS Machine.

The EPI (Economic Policy Institute) heavily criticized Marc Tucker’s earlier workforce based reform system for education. This Report is from 2007.

Below, is a screen shot of the MD Advocates for Children and Youth organization. They featured regular updates on the Commission Tucker was a consultant for. They even have a 2019 Legislative look at all the Commission’s findings which have passed in their State legislature. No wonder Marc Tucker’s excited MD is about the ‘rock the nation’.

3) From MD, their 2018 education accomplishments. If you watched to Estonia video, what you’ll read here, sounds very close. The MEEC (Ed Enterprise) is on Page 21, Estonia is on Page 4, among the countries MD students virtually interact with. The grant for this came from the Humanities arm of the Maryland government. You’ll see here that one county in MD (Montgomery) allotted $25,000.00 in FY 2019 for the Sister States School Linkage Program”. (*Note: look on page 67-11. Does your State have a “Sister States program? Does it have a “Sister Cities” program? DYK?Sister Cities International was founded in 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower as an adaptation of the popular European concept of “twinning” that emerged after World War II. It was established as a way of promoting good will and creating enduring peace between formerly warring countries.’ Source)

4) From 2007, Tucker’s paper on increasing workforce based education. It was published by ASCD.

5) American Educational Research Assoc. (AERA) interviewed Tucker in 2015 (about a month before ESSA became law) take a look back at his words & compare to where we are now, in 2019.

6) WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) embedded 21 different instances for CTE (Career Tech Education) and its CPs (Career Paths), it also embedded the Dept. of Defense 16 times. Why? Funds for workforce education to be extended to the military.
The same military which, not only, aligned itself to the CCSS Machine, but STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math). STEM is a UN (United Nations) tool to create global workforce, education, and, economy.
How does this impact our topic for today’s article? The National Guard Distance Learning Program is funded through WIOA. The National Guard is also part of the MD/Estonia partnership.

7) If you’ve heard of the ERI (European Reassurance Initiative), it was originally proposed back in 2014. Part of the funding for ERI (which a portion goes to Estonia) is used for ‘support in programs, activities, and assist the government’.

While education is not mentioned, workforce training isn’t either. However, we have no documentation to show HOW the funds are divided, once they get to the intended country. So, the question is: does any of our federal funding go to be used for aligning education and workforce somewhere else to be returned to us in educratic reform campaigns by the likes of Marc Tucker?! Long-time Anti Fed Ed Warrior, Charlotte Iserbyt sounded the “NO! Marc Tucker” alert in this article.

8) From 2015, Marc Tucker’s ‘love’ for Estonia shows his true colors: Russian and Germanic education models. Warriors, read the article, and you’ll see it’s not simply education we should be concerned about, it’s our entire nation. If data mining in education bothers you, read how Estonia’s a master at using all that data.

9) Dr. Karen Salmon celebrated MD’s alignment to global education in this Feb. 2019 update:


salmon

In this Aug. 2018 MD Dept. of Education meeting notes, you’ll see Dr. Salmon’s future plan for use of data on Page 3.

The “Lead Higher Initiative” is in place to create “Next Generation High Schools”.

10) Warriors, any guess as to how much Tucker’s influence in MD’s education will cost the taxpayers (State wide and Nationally)? $725 million dollars…and the Plan is being fast-tracked through the MD legislators.

Closing:

Warriors, that’s it. My two-day look at one of the worst Americans I can happily say I will never meet in person. He is dangerous to our children, to us, and to our nation. We know he is not alone in the destruction of our land. He’s not alone in his quest to kill real education. We’ve got somewhat of a leg up on beating the news Tucker’s been gloating about as ‘the other half of the bigger picture’ in American education reform.

fire
We need to roar, Warriors!

Now, let’s EXPOSE it, so we can steal his thunder. If any of you know someone in MD, let’s get the word to them. 

Big Wheel Deal

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have you ever had one of those items you knew you needed to address but thought it wouldn’t take too long? Yeah, right. That’s pretty much been my experience in education research. Today’s article is just one of those items.  A mere 4 page document..no worries. Not much can be gleaned from those pages..Boy, was I mistaken! Find out how no matter which way the wheel spins, the schools of America lose.

charliebrown
Everyday is a GREAT day to yank the CCSS ball right out from under the Machine’s feet.

A 2018 global education meeting. The goal? Another global declaration. As if we don’t have enough of those going around. However, look at the picture (below). This isn’t your every day global declaration, this is an EDUCATION declaration for globalization.

This particular Declaration reaffirmed the global takeover of education. But, wait, Lynne, the US pulled out of the UN and UNESCO (United Nations and United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization), so this won’t impact American education at all.

WRONG! American education is still 100% aligned to the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), no matter what small portions of the US government have ‘left’ the UN/UNESCO.

There’s more than enough evidence (here on my blog and other’s researched publications) to prove the US is still a UN member-state.

Brussels, 2018:

Brussels2018(Source)

So what does the 2018 Brussels Declaration for Education state?

1) It reaffirms the call to transforming the world via education.
2) It decries the fact the global community is not on the 100% alignment track to the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), mainly #4: Quality Global Education for All
3) Pulls in the 2015 Incheon Declaration (where the WEF, World Education Forum adopted the ‘education for all by 2030’ agenda)
4) Sets out the Education for All by 2030 Framework for Action
5) The Framework is based off UN’s global regions consultations for SDG #4.
6) “Ensures inclusive and equitable quality education and promotes life-long learning opportunities for all.” (In spite of not being on track)
7) A reaffirmation to protect the UN’s declared ‘right to inclusive education’. This ‘right’ is a fundamental role in education AND training carried out by life-long learning and higher education.
8) Research on #7 is a key driver for Sustainable Development. Especially in climate change global adoption and mitigation (reducing the harm to the Earth).
9) Calls for a stronger collective effort for SDG #4.
10) Use formal and non-formal education to wipe out illiteracy.
11) Institute and strengthen legislation/policy/strategy so that all education and training is inclusive. Devote more funding to this end so that ‘no one is left behind’. (For example, in Congress HR 1453 seeks to align more energy activities between the US and the European Union)
12) Tied to #11, those efforts need to include crises and humanitarian efforts.
13) Commit to include migrants, displaced people, and refugees in the host nation’s education and training system. Recognize their ‘qualifications’ (aka: competencies and skills) and ensure these are in line with national and international education agreements.
14) Commit to gender responsive quality education and training, especially for females.
15) Commit to strengthen global citizenship education, especially for the SDGs. This will promote values (respect for life, dignity, cultural diversity) and will help bring social cohesion for democracy, peace, and social justice. It will also improve accountability in education as a ‘public good’.
16) Commits to an open/flexible and responsive education and training system which will support a broader range of kindergarten, secondary, and, college students (aka: early child to adulthood; ‘cradle to grave’; ‘life-long learning’; birth to death tracking) By doing this, global contributions for sustainability, peaceful, inclusive, and just societies will occur.
17) Engages global ‘decent work for all’, especially for rapidly changing labor markets.
18) Calls for public funding to increase for relevant PD (professional development) and continuous PD.
19) Stronger domestic resources and mobilization of these for international co-operation. Once this is set in place, solidarity and increased improvement of education can occur.

Warriors, that’s not all. If you look at the notes for all these items, you’ll find that politics and legislation are to ‘beef up’ host nations for these activities.

You’ll also see that teachers are to be elevated to some ‘god-like’ status.
You are sure to see the economic changes, as well as the social, political, and environmental changes which each host nation will have to bare.
Then, the increase in technology is a ‘given’. Add to that the ‘democratic and sustainable societies and lifestyles’. We’re really talking a total reconfiguration of our nation.

uscaucuslist.jpg

Education costs are to be placed at 4-6% of of host nation’s GDPs (Gross Domestic Products) and use 15-20% of all public funds (aka: taxes).

If you look at the United States GDP for 2018 ($21.trillion) and figure what 4-6% is, that anywhere between $860 billion and $1.29 trillion). The recent FY 2020 Presidential Budget request was $62 billion, just for American education. Fifteen to 20% of ALL US public funds? That’s outrageous!

P3s (Public private partnerships) are to be used to monitor and data track all the activities to ensure the plan is played out as this Declaration decrees.

Lastly, the Brussels Declaration reaffirms that education is a human right AND a public responsibility.

ICYMI: here’s the ‘catchy’ YouTube video about the entire meeting, Dec. 3rd-5th, 2018.

Warriors, was the United States involved in the Brussels 2018 meeting? Yes. In October of 2018, the US and other North American countries, as well as Europe, put together their progress notes and ‘advice’ for meeting SDG #4 by 2030. You can access that information here. The official “Outcome Statement” is a bit more concise. It was used in the Brussels meetings as well.

That information was then forwarded on and used at the Brussels meeting to help create the Declaration.

To access the entire website from the Brussels meeting, go here. (*Note, since signing the 2015 Agenda 2030 Agreement, this is the first time global education for all has been addressed in this fashion.)

While I couldn’t easily identify (in the photos and videos section) any member of the US officials in attendance, some of the groups we are members of (World Bank, UNICEF, OECD) were there. Also, NGOs (Non governmental agencies) were in attendance, so it’s highly likely someone or some people from the US were there.

Closing:

Warriors, why am I bringing up a meeting from 3 months ago? Because one of the resources from that meeting will definitely impact America and its education. The GEM Report for 2019. AKA: Global Education Monitoring Report.

That Report is close to 440 pages. My next article will dive right into what those pages reveal. Trust me, you’ll need a break between this article and THAT one.

Why is it good to go over the GEM Report 2019 again (if you’ve already read it)? With the national immigration issues we are facing in 2019, it is imperative. Remember, the Brussels Declaration has stated legislation and public money will be used for SDG#4.

Also, because so much of this involves displaced people, immigration, and humanitarian efforts, this will be ‘visited’ on ALL educational choices due to the fact it’s being implemented community wide! What will this do to our rights? Our Constitution? Rather than ask me what to do, ask those who are your authorities.
