A Matter of Trust?

To My Anti Fed Ed Warriors, it’s been SUCH a busy week of fighting against CCSS Machine.

This article will be short in words, but HUGE in audio content. Why? Warriors, it’s a matter of trust for all of us..

Trust between a citizen and their nation; trust between a parent and a child; AND keeping us ‘at the ready’ against the national data rape our government is committing DAILY!

Some of us who are STILL exposing the illegal activities of our government as part of the CCSS Machine, as well as the willingness of ANYONE else connected, see apathy among parents. WHY? How can we POSSIBLY afford the ‘luxury’ of apathy at this stage of our nation’s demise???!!

Parents, education IS the #1 ‘change agent’ by which to undermine our nation!
Data which is collected on our students (or all ages and all choices) is the #1 way to control them! Data is the #1 way to control the nation..it’s economy AND it’s direction.

Warriors, take an hour and a half to listen to my recent SC presentation where we covered not only data rape, but the 6 other things REAL education shouldn’t include!
A big thanks to the Concerned Voters of Pickens County, South Carolina.

However, data rape isn’t our only area where we should be on alert. We need to check our trust level of the education system. With ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) embedded enough mandates that will align every single education choice known to us!

After listening to the SC recording, be sure to access the latest Women on the Wall Call about even MORE warnings for parents and taxpayers!)

Yet, we’re STILL sending our beloved children into this system. Parents who have gotten their kids out of the more traditional public system and placed them into an alternative, are finding that the SAME data rape, the SAME indoctrination, the SAME assessments are there are well. Warriors, THAT is the VERY goal of ESSA!

Why are we wondering why our kids come home confused about life, when we say we don’t want fed led ed, but we don’t bat an eye sending them there!

Our kids trust us, as their parents! Parents seem to still trust the schools. When schools steeped in indoctrination (which is against the very family entity) tell the students to think one way and we (dare) to say ‘No, we think this way.” WHAT ARE WE REALLY SHOWING OUR KIDS? If the students accept your blanket trust in the CCSS Machine system, then WHATEVER happens in THAT system will be what those students THINK you WANT them to be exposed to!!

Do you really WANT your child daily data raped? Do you really WANT your child assigned to a job path before they can truly decided what they DESIRE to do? Do you really WANT to see the government demand taxpayer money of YOURS to pay for BOTH these and MORE?

Remember, even home education is in danger every time early college/dual enrollment, internships, apprenticeships, virtual public schools, AP (Advanced Placement), IB (International Baccalaureate), ALL of the nationally-normed tests (especially ACT and SAT, GED, and CLEP).

We are ALLOWING our kids to face daily data rape for not simply undermining America, but aligning to the United Nations. Don’t think the data rape extends that far?! I urge you to go back and READ the evidence! A computer has the ability to track everything a student knows, thinks, and does. 

Below are the millions/billions of dollars being earmarked for
NATIONAL DATA COLLECTION in 2019. 
HR 6470 and S 3158 are simply a beginning point for Congress in relation to the Fiscal Year (FY) Finalized 2019 Budget. Both these Bills cover ONLY the Depts of Labor, HHS, Education, and ANY related Agency.

However, by knowing WHERE the money goes, we can track how it ends up in the FINALIZED version.
The fiscal Year 2019 begins 10/1/18.

Career Aligning Data Mining:
*From HR 6470, $6 million to enlarge and innovate the Workforce Quality Data Initiative (WQDI) uses personal, private data from those in post-secondary schools and the job market to streamline back down to the Student Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) used in any K-12th-grade education tracking system (all ed choices).

In S 3158, $6 million for WQDI is also set aside.

*YouthBuild (HR 6470: $92, 534,000/S 3158: $93,079,000

*Expanding Apprenticeships (dovetails directly into the new CTE law and Exec Order for expansion) HR 6470: $150 million/S 3158: $160 million

*State grants for One Stop Job Centers, National Data Systems, Vets, etc. HR 6470: $3.47 billion; S 3158: $3.5 billion

*Health Care Data collection S 3158: $21 million

*HR 6470’s Health Care Data Collection is lumped in with Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Admin. (SAMHA) funds for ‘early intervention’ evidence-based research), $1.4 billion

*HR 6470 Health Surveillance/Research (ties to the Freedom of Information Act) $467 million; Data Collection for Substance Abuse: $79 million. Similar to this in S 3158 is the $60.3 million in funds for Health Information Technology upgrades.

*In Education, NATIONAL DATA COLLECTION VIA “SAFE SCHOOLS” 
(HR 6470: $5.2 billion; S 3158: $5.3 billion)

*HR 6470 has $6.5 million set aside in education for the Census Bureau and Education Data, S 3158: $5 million

*Career Tech Ed (CTE) HR 6470, $1.9 billion (will use SLDS and WQDI among other DATA RAPE information)

S 3158 for CTE: $1.8 billion
Institutes for Educational Science (IES), US Dept. of Ed research arm totally dependent on massive amounts of data)

HR 6470: $613 million, S 3158: $615 million BOTH these amounts carry the mandate that they MUST connect Pre-K to adult education/workforce data.
From Voices Empowers research:

Most people believe that an IEP is only for students with special needs, as referenced in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). But the fact is, an IEP (Personalized Learning) will soon be, for every American citizen in this new P-20W system. P-20W meaning from prenatal through the workforce, and is a part of a much bigger plan. It is a controlled workforce for a controlled global economy.

When the money follows the child, state or federal Education Savings Acts (ESA)s, via government, regulated “School Choice”, the access point is established to reach every citizen, no matter what education choose is used.

To see the chokehold data has via IDEA funds in the context of ESSA, go here.

Closing:

Warriors, Parents, and Taxpayers, we HAVE to stop trusting a system which doesn’t serve us as We the People should be served! We MUST take our citizenship duties seriously! PROTECT your FAMILY now!

Tech Thursday: Lifelong Skills or Lifelong Sentence?

Think this is alignment? Wait until you read the fine print in their publications.

Anti CCSS Warriors, the above picture is one I featured in a previous article, but serves my topic for today very well.

Since the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is now law,  CCSS (Common Core State Standards) will NOT be a phrase you see. BUT it will be there all the same. The name has changed, but the agenda is STILL the SAME!

We know the new law uses ‘college and career readiness’, “challenging state academic standards”, STEM, and “Career Tech Education”.

Since the CCSS Machine (which includes all the OTHER names of CCSS, as well as the government involvement and the private businesses in bed with them) is so great at the ‘confuse them with a name change’ tactic, it will not surprise me to see even more new phrases being used as code for Common Core State Standards!

One example that you may, or may not, of seen/heard:   “Lifelong Learning Skills”

Before we move into where I found this ‘new’ phrase, look at a dictionary’s entry for the word “lifelong”:  lasting or remaining in a particular state throughout a person’s life

Anti CCSS Warriors, did you catch that? “Remaining in a PARTICULAR state “. When applying this definition to ‘learning’, I do not think it means what the CCSS Machine wishes you to believe it says!

Think about it, if we are to be educated and truly learning something, it will be impossible to remain in the same state of learning throughout one’s life.  As we grow and mature, so does our learning capacity, as intended. However, we have seen enough evidence which is credible to know ANYTHING connected to the CCSS Machine’s educational reform of America will NOT give our students the foundation necessary for natural brain development or learning which will help them mature naturally.

So just where did I find this “Lifelong Learning Skills” used in relation to the ‘Common Core State Standards’ alter personality “College and Career Readiness”? The College and Career Readiness and Success Center (CCCRS) housed in AIR (American Institutes of Research)!

In preparing for one of my latest radio interviews, I found this 2015 Report from the College and Career Readiness driven entity.  AIR is funded by many pro CCSS/CCR/CTE groups. At the top: the U.S. Dept. of Education!

You might like to know that the CCRS also has an overview guide for each of the states which had defined what ‘college and career readiness’ meant back in 2014. We know CCSS is NOT preparing our students for colleges and it is creating paths etched in confinement for careers.

Much like anything else the CCSS Machine has ground out in propaganda, the phrase ‘college and career readiness’ is hot air. So, how dumb does the CCSS Machine think Americans are? Dumb enough to think a name change will be enough to pacify us!

To see the College and Career Readiness and Success Overview Guide (2014) of what college and career readiness is defined by state by state:
CCRS Defintions Brief_REV_1

What you will find in this Report are the 6 reoccurring themes which include MORE exaggerated language. You find ‘grit and perseverance’ among the six themes.
It is important to note that there are many other themes, but this 6 are repeated state-by-state more than the others. Where have we heard the ‘grit’ phrase before? It was included in the U.S. Government Report titled “Promoting Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance: Critical Factors for Success in the 21st Century”.

Also of note, not every state had a college and career readiness definition in this Overview. For example, the state I live in, NC, was not included. So I searched for what the definition is and found that it is almost  the same as another state not included in the 2014 Overview either! To see the almost word for word copies, I give you the two states I compared, NC and FL.

Here is FL’s definition from their State Dept. of Education, Students are considered college and career ready when they have the knowledge, skills, and academic preparation*  needed to enroll and succeed in introductory college credit-bearing courses within an associate or baccalaureate degree program without the need for remediation. These same attributes and levels of achievement are needed for entry into and success in post-secondary workforce education or directly into a job that offers gainful employment and career advancement.” (the star denotes that you will need to follow another link to see what parameters ‘knowledge, skills, and academic preparation’ are to the FL DofEd) See the rest:
http://www.fldoe.org/schools/higher-ed/fl-college-system/college-career-readiness.stml

Here in NC’s definition as featured on the Hunt Institute’s website. Set in motion since 2014, “In North Carolina, students are considered career and college ready when they have the knowledge and academic preparation needed to enroll and succeed, without the need for remediation, in introductory college credit-bearing courses in English language arts and mathematics within an associate or baccalaureate degree program. These same attributes and levels of achievement are needed for entry into and success in post-secondary workforce education, the military, or directly into a job that offers gainful employment and career advancement.” To see what else the Hunt Institute supplies you as far as the way NC game to this definition, see:
http://www.hunt-institute.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Did_You_Know_CareerCollegeReadinessDefinition_20150430.pdf

Anti CCSS Warriors, consider this:
If the states are using canned versions of the definition, how easy do you think it will be for each state to truly have a choice when it comes to NOT having Common Core (which hides behind the name ‘College and Career Ready Standards’)??

So when do the ‘Lifelong Skills’ come into play? Read on!

LLSbyAIR

From the introduction of the Lifelong Skills Report, this excerpt,Lifelong Learning Skills (LLS) provide the foundation for learning and working. They broadly support student thinking, self-management, and social interaction, enabling the pursuit of education and career goals. Collectively, LLS are the means by which students master academic content and translate knowledge into action. There is a growing consensus among researchers that LLS are discretely identifiable and actionable levers of support for meeting college and career readiness(CCR) objectives. Below you will see just one  of the evidence based research tables which are offered up as ‘credible sources’ for LLS and CCR.
LLSCCR
This is just the first table (critical thinking)! There are 2 more, one for self-regulation (image a pre-K,  K, or a special needs student being 100% successful at this expected behavior) Following this  is the SEL (social and emotional learning) table. Remember, anti CCSS Warriors, plenty of behavior intervention is planned for America, which will most definitely include social and emotional manipulation!

What follows these tables of How LLS will be interwoven into CCR, are the ASSESSMENTS!
See below:
assessLLS
Directly preceding the above graphic in the official report will be a note about an annotated bibliography. The Bibliography has this in the description, “…what lifelong learning skills are, how they impact and relate to college and career readiness and success outcomes, and how they can be taught and measured in the classroom, across the pre-kindergarten to workforce (PK-20W) spectrum.”

To get the AIR ‘Lifelong Learning Skills Report’ (2015): CCRS Lifelong Learning Skills Policy Considerations_0

To get the Bibliography (2014); The assessments to be used in measuring college/career readiness or have been used as reference will begin on page 26 and include The SBAC, PARCC, and many others, yet the top of the page tells you few very assessments can truly be used or trusted: CCRS LifelongLearning Bibligraphy
(If you are new to fighting against the Common Core, College and Career Readiness, the SBAC and PARCC are the high stakes assessments the U.S. Dept. of Education gave millions  to create. See:
http://www2.ed.gov/programs/racetothetop-assessment/awards.html
 
Those awarded the millions were all pro CCSS, and guess, what, they are pro CCR, too!)

Closing:

In the title of this article, I asked a question. Do we have an answer yet? I believe we do. While those within the CCSS Machine would like us to believe the Lifelong Skills will enforce College and Career Readiness on a path to success, the evidence (from before the passage of the ESSA was passed  to now) points to a lifelong sentence of going nowhere; of staying stuck; of failing to become what those students wish to become, but becoming exactly what the CCSS Machine determines them to become! Remember, the goal is pre-Kindergarten to career, which means the upcoming HEA re-authorization will be slam full of MORE Lifelong Learning Skills, social and emotional learning, and much more for EVERYONE in post-secondary education!
