For My Friends

Warriors, we know sometimes we all need help from those we’ve come to count on. Especially in the War vs the Core.

twainwords

Today, I’d like to highlight some of my Warrior/Friends efforts to help ALL of us across the nation. Why? A boost during the summer months is needed to keep us sharp and focused.

We’re hearing how some States think CCSS (Common Core State Standards) are gone, or that the leaders in our States declare the Standards ‘dead’.
Heck, we’ve even heard the U.S. Secretary of Education try to pacify us with how ‘dead’ Common Core is.

Warriors, we KNOW CCSS lives on in the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). CCSS didn’t go away, it expanded!

To help us stay strong, sign the anti Fed Ed/Labor merger. We’ve only got until the 24th of July to reach 100,000 signatures!

We, the Warriors, know the merger will expand CCSS’s workforce education, not shrink it.

Participate in the upcoming call (free) where you’ll get information on the P3s (Public Private Partnerships) and their “Pay for Success” schemes for education and some other really timely information. (*Note, there are two date choices, the first is July 19th; the second is in December 2018.)

Summer’s no time to slack off our watchdog stance when it comes to education. Thanks for being who you are WHERE you are!

America’s Challenge

Hello Anti Fed Ed Warriors! We’re hours away from America’s Independence Day celebrations. While you’re passing around the hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, and drinks, why not pass around a petition as well?!

jeffersonwords

Independence Day has always been about celebrating freedom.

However, when’s the last time you read the Declaration of Independence? Did you know it has a citizen’s ‘charge’ in it as to what to do with the government should it become ‘against’ the people?!

decright

 Warriors, why are we not exercising our RIGHTS to alter government where it concerns education?! Why are we NOT protesting in DROVES about the illegally based U.S. Dept. of Education and U.S. Dept. of Labor merging?!

Sure, we say we KNOW federal overreach in education is wrong, but what are we DOING about it?! Are we waiting for the government fairies to whack DC leaders over the head and HOPE they realize the overreaches are unconstitutionally based?

Are we going to sit and watch our students (and ourselves) be overrun by the CCSS Machine and turned into workforce minions? I encourage you to meet my fictitious family, The Wannabees. They’ll show you exactly HOW the merging of education and labor is as un-American as it can be.

twainwords

Signing the petition is a great first step to doing something besides acknowledging corruption. We the People could have a choice seat at the ‘table’ to complete our civil duties as citizens!

If you don’t realize just how BAD the merger between Ed and Labor will be for all of US, I urge you to gather the folks around the picnic table and watch this video WHILE you pass the anti merger petition around! The video is one I’ve featured before and is all about the European Union’s education/labor pipeline. If that’s not enough to set your charcoal on fire, U.S. Secretary of Education, DeVos wants the merger so we CAN be just LIKE those European nations with such systems(*Note: the Prevent Common Core website I referred to in the archived link above, seems to no longer exist.)

What will really set off your fireworks is this is EXACTLY the same ‘global education for all’ BS the United Nations has been pushing and implementing right under most of America’s noses! This workforce based education is one DeVos and Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, regularly stump for.

Closing:

Warriors, this Independence Day, make sure your voices are loud, clear, and stronger than your beverage of choice! Sign the petition, get out there, and demand our leaders GET OUT of education! We only have until July 24, 2018 to gather at least 100,000 signatures. As of this writing, 1,480 Americans has said “NO!”. We want education to be academic, not workforce prep.
So, there’s our American challenge: can we be Warriors strong enough to exercise our civic duty as laid out in the U.S. Declaration of Independence?!

Prerogatives Not Needed

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have you ever looked at your children and told them that one day they would grow up and go work for ‘The Man’? Have you ever looked in the mirror and told yourself, ‘Gee, I’m glad I have to earn money for my boss today.”?

wannabees

Certainly not! What I imagine you’ve told them is the same thing you were told, ‘Go to school, get good grades and then see where life takes you’. For some of us, it was straight to work. Others left and went on to college. Some folks elected to do both, while others took a break and ‘found themselves’ before ‘getting on track’.

Warriors, these were all prerogatives for us. We had some choices, but they were OUR choices. In today’s educratic system, NO ONE has a true prerogative anymore. Some test tells Johnny and/or Suzy what they must complete in school  now to work somewhere else later. By the time the kids are in middle school, they already know where their future income is coming from.

For us as grownups? Our future’s just as aligned. We’re told we must update our ‘credentials’ via courses. We’re constantly monitored for ‘quality control’.

Every single education/job move we make isn’t so much about our U.S. Constitutionally guaranteed right to ‘pursue happiness’, it’s about checking off the boxes on a pre-determined list of where we’ll fit in best when it comes to the CCSS Machine.

This type of conformity appears to be the true goal of the merger between the U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Labor. However, the conformity doesn’t END there.

We, the Anti Fed Ed Warriors, owe a huge debt of gratitude to a fierce Warrior, Karen Bracken. She created a ‘short and sweet’ petition to protest the planned merger. It was released Sunday, June 24th. As of today, June 27th, the petition has just over 1,000 signatures. Not only did I sign the petition, I’ve joined her in getting the word out as much as humanly possible. While 1,000 citizens speaking up is great, we’ve got to have 100,000 JUST to be recognized by the White House.

Warriors, if we don’t speak LOUDLY, we cannot have a seat at the table to help STOP the merger!! The CCSS Machine cannot be allowed to continue this cycle of robbing our children (and ourselves) of our prerogatives as Americans!

ESSAskel

The framework to realign our federal government has a plethora of ways to continue the overreach into our lives. How? The biggest ‘change agent’ on the planet is education. (The source for THAT ‘sentiment’? The United Nations)

From what I found and can easily tie back to the CCSS Machine, the framework supporting the President’s Executive Order #13781 has close to 20 ways in which education is woven throughout. How?? Jobs and economy. My top 3 (based on research) are below:

eoframeworkedu

Many of the other ways in which the framework supports MORE educratic overreach surfaced back in 2017. When I researched and wrote that article, it was to detail the many federal departments with plans to align education to workforce, NOT simply Education and Labor! The framework for the President’s restructure has some of these same agencies shifting. The danger is simply this:

With existing alignment plans in place, how many will survive the moves to their ‘new homes’??? How many will be strengthened? How many will continue the ‘student data rape’ between the SLDS (Student Longitudinal Data System) and the WQDI (Workforce Quality Data Initiative? Will any of these aligned plans DIE in the moves?

Warriors Speaking Out:

Recently, I made several posts and a few FB live videos to raise the truth about HOW this type of overreach is playing out. (*Note:  my live feeds aren’t professionally created. They are from my heart and passion about helping inform you with TRUTH. Yes, I make mistakes in them. The bottom line is not my popularity, it IS our nation. It IS our children. It IS about us. It IS my duty as an American to stand up and SPEAK OUT!)
homemadeantied

There are others speaking out about the fallacy of the merger. The most recent is from my friends and fellow Warriors at Freedom Project Media. My Warrior friend Nicholas Tampio has this to say. If you represent a group and wish to sign a letter directed to the President, go here. Nancy Bailey’s article protesting the merger shows how corporations ‘win’ while our kids suffer. Cheri Kiesecker’s written a scathing look at the merger for Missouri Education Watchdog.

We know Congress is acting like animals in heat over CTE (Career Tech Education) . They’re foaming at the mouth telling the nation how desperately we all need MORE CTE in our lives.  Below, is what fellow Warrior, Dr. Victoria Young posted on Facebook. (added emphasis is mine)

drvictoria
To see the 2017 article, that’s here. To see the May 2018, go here.

The brutal honest truth is this: CTE is Common Core Workforce Training.

ctefail

If you think the Ed/Labor merger will ‘bring back vocational schools’ like you may remember them to be, the merger won’t. I’ve shown you through years of research how ‘vocational schools’ were re-branded TO Career Tech Education. It was when Common Core’s alignment AND standards were inserted. The merger WILL only INCREASE the amounts of workforce aligned education FOR every AMERICAN. Not just public K-12th grade students. If you think private education, homeschooling, on-line schooling are exempt, I urge you to realize that BOTH education AND labor will cover preK to grave for every American.

Closing:

American education has been creating ‘new levels of mediocrity’ since the U. S. Ed Dept was created. The merger will create an even newer level of conformity with workforce training taking the place of academics.

The merger will do exactly what I’ve warned you before: scatter education programs like cockroaches all over DC. As hard as it would be to close U.S. Dept. of Ed and U.S. Dept. of Labor, RIGHT now, merging will bury ALL the overreaches so we may NEVER be free of federal overreaches!! The best plan, is REPEAL ESSA first, Restore FERPA, THEN begin to close the illegally based departments DOWN!

puffin

DC is convinced that ALL education is workforce development, therefore all education must be aligned. Forget Johnny’s or Suzy’s ability to think freely or read well. Forget your ability to be able to pursue your own happiness. The goal is conformity for economic gain.

bowl-of-stupid

Warriors, don’t let another minute pass..go to the petition page, sign, confirm, and share!! A whopping 84% of Americans opposed Common Core and the federal overreach. Where are you now?! Don’t let your child’s prerogatives die at the hands of Congress. Don’t allow your freedoms to be sacrificed at the corporate altar.
