My Thanks To You

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I’d be remiss if I didn’t take my hat off to all the teachers out there who fight for our kids against the CCSS Machine.  I don’t appreciate you for one week out of the year, I appreciate your spunk EVERY day!

momscorn

I’d also like to give a shout out to all our Mom Warriors. Many of us have been at this for years, while we see newer Moms join us.

We win the daily battles in uniting against all that seeks to harm our kids, no matter if we actually gave birth to them or not. Our kids are OURS.

To all our Dads out there who’ve stepped up and had to fill Mom’s shoes for whatever reason, I salute you, too. Your presence in the War Vs the Core is vital.

My Wish For Every Parent, Everyday:

Warriors, with Mother’s Day Weekend, quickly approaching. I wanted to take the time to wish every Mom; every parent, and, every teacher to not give up. I know you hate the CCSS Machine and all that comes with it. You know I do, too.

If you’re like me, you know that even with the tough days we face, we have to keep protecting our kids.

While we are in a War Vs the Core, we also know the odds against us are steep. Steep or not, we choose every day, to pick up our ‘super hero cape’ and fight on. THANK YOU!

momscape
So, I’m not going to get sappy, Warriors.
You won’t get rosy speeches or flowers from me. We can shower each other with the spoils of this War later.

What I DO wish for you is the same thing I posted a few days ago on my Facebook wall:
“*I wish for you to stand up for your kids and mine; I want you to stand strong for them when they are weak. You never know how many times I’ve stood for them while shielding my own.
**I wish for you to crush ‘those boxes’ in front of you, so they can see boxes are not meant to define us or confine us.
***I wish for you to firm when needed, laugh largely EVERY chance you get, to love fiercely, and fight even moreso.
****I wish for you to know when one of us stumbles and falls, others are there to lift you up.
*****Challenge each other to stay strong and stand the course.”

Why Do We Fight?

We want desperately to ‘win’ the War Vs the Core. A complete and total ‘win’, too. What would that even look like?

In a ‘perfect’ world? We’ve see ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) repealed. We see Congress respect the U. S. Constitution and remove every OTHER federally overreaching law into education. We’d see the UN (United Nations) run out of America faster than a speeding bullet. We’d see teachers freed from the mandates which hold them back and students who’s privacy and emotions were not manipulated. We’d also know that the constant testing and alignment to agendas which do not match our values would be history. We’d see school boards released from the bondage of conformity and work with parents for long than 3 minute timed speeches. We’d see every single participant from the CCSS Machine held criminally charged with child abuse. Lastly, we’d demand a full and total refund from every profiteer off our children and settle for no less than a public apology to accompany their checks.

prodparent
One of my most distinct messages I’ve created to express my ire toward the CCSS Machine.

We fight for freedom, respect, justice, and truth. Every child deserves that.
We fight to make ANY variation of our ‘complete win’ possible. Every blow against the CCSS Machine is a victory. Don’t discount ANY victory, Warriors!

What We Pass On Matters:

Warriors, I don’t have to tell you our kids learn what matters MOST from us.

As Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I trust your kids hate the overreaches as much as you do! I hope they are standing up beside us and fighting back.

I’ll leave you with this…mompower

What do you think my daughters have learned from my actions? They, to this day, still ‘salute’ the CCSS Machine.

daughterpower

Warriors, go be awesome this weekend. Be fantastic every day! Why? Every day we fight for the right things is a GREAT day!

Educratic Money 2019

Warriors Against Fed Led Education, I’ve recently been looking over about 20 different federal bills from ‘our’ Congress. These bills are all the precursors to the Fiscal Year 2019’s FINALIZED Congressional Budget. In other words, what is laid out in this group of bills will be combed over, some changes made, and then combined into one BIG bill by mid September. Fiscal Year 2019 begins Oct. 1, 2018. SO, if we know what to look for NOW, we can be prepared later.

moneyorlove

Why so many bills? Well, Warriors, think about it, when you have at least 9 different federal agencies overreaching into education, the funds have to not only be earmarked, they must come from several different angles.

governmentcant

However, make NO mistake, the size of government is NOT shrinking, nor is the footprint in ‘education’. One thing I can assure you of, as concerned American citizens. Our government does not care one bit about our students, as people, but as producers of profit for big government and big business.

kisspng-bank-robbery-crime-clip-art-bank-robber-cliparts-5a8a0d587fa600.3009802115189968245229As we know, Warriors, the shift in modern academics has been to remove true academia and replace it with workforce prep. The bills I’ve been looking at are 100% proof of this well planned, and so far, executed CCSS Machine agenda.

The goal of aligned careers?? ‘Workforce’ minions.


Warriors, for the remainder of this article, you’ll get all the information about these FY 2019 Congressional bills. Use the information to ask questions, demand answers, tell your Representative and Senator that there’s NO WAY you are OK with
their-
educratic-money-for-an-unconstitutional-spending-spree-in-FY-2019
.

(*Note: Not only will some of these bills cover FY 2019, but have laid the groundwork for every fiscal year between 2019 and 2028!)

Warriors, the time I’m asking you to spend on the following items is more than likely the most important thing you can do for your country. It’s certainly more time that it appears Congress spent remembering ANY overreach into education is illegal!

monopolists
1) Start here, Warriors, it’s my most recent 40 minute video laying out the main Congressional Bills: House Concurred Resolution #128, HR 6470 and S 3158.

2) Then, take a couple of minutes and access my most recent article titled “Moving Along”. There, you’ll find the most well known US Government agencies with their claws in education.

3) To access the H Con Res 128, go here. What the most important items are from this Resolution is that all the FYs from 2019-2028 are laid out. You’ll also note that out of the 22 most important budget items, education is #10. It’s also lumped in with labor, jobs, and all social services. There’s a distinct reason for this.

4) Because education is lumped in with labor and social services, we need to note that most social services are headed up in the health and human services areas. Hence, the HR 6470 and S 3158. These sister bills cover ALL FY 2019 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies. (*Note: Warriors are you seeing the theme here, that even Congress is relegating education to a back seat?)
The most important items about HR 6470 and S 3158 are below. I urge you to comb through these on your own to see what else is in store.

a) Money being budgeted varies slightly from Chamber to Chamber in some cases, in most, both Chambers of Congress are in total agreement. (An example is that BOTH Bills seek to have $6 million dollars to ‘beef up’ and innovate the WQDI (Workforce Quality Data Initiative), but vary slightly on Title One funds via ESSA and HEA (Every Student Succeeds and the Higher Education Act). The House wants $16.4 billion and the Senate wants $16.5 billion.)

b) HR 6470 is 194 pages and is on the Union Calendar for Congress as Item #667. S 3158 is 172 pages and is on the Senate Calendar as Item #497. The ‘Union’ calendar means that HR 6470 (and any other House bill with a Union Calendar #) was passed out of its Committee (in this case the Committee for Funding Labor, HHS, Ed, and their Related Agencies) and is waiting further action. The ‘Senate’ calendar means that whatever item is marked there, it needs Senate action on from the entire floor. A General Order (some of the Senate FY 2019 bills have this) note means the order in which the item was received.

c) Both HR 6470 and S 3158 have Committee Reports. As important as combing through the main bills are, these Reports are MUCH more revealing as to exactly where and HOW the funds will be spent IF APPROVED in the Final FY 2019 Budget. Here’s Committee Report 115-862 from the House. The see the Senate Committee Report 115-289, go here.

d) Both HR 6470 and S 3158 have money earmarked to expand CTE (Career Tech Education) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) Apprenticeships. The House wants to spend $150 million in expansion and the Senate, $160 million. As we know, Warriors, the President recently signed into law a nation-wide expansion for CTE and apprenticeships, as well as created a new EO (Executive Order) to create an expansion of government in overseeing apprenticeships. This also plays right into a previous President Trump EO to expand apprenticeships. You can read all about all of these EOs and the new law, here.

e) Also look for Community Development Block Grants, Head Start, Early Head Start, Social Services, Mental Health, Biomedical, Biotechnology, YouthBuild, TRIO, GEAR UP, any technical or infrastructure upgrades or assistance, or the many instances for national data collection (for example, near pages 68-70 of both HR 6470 and S 3158, you’ll see millions set aside for collecting mental health data from children.

f) Beginning on Page 113 (Page 115 in the Senate) in the House bill, you’ll see the ESSA breakdown for the huge amounts of taxpayer funds being sought. However, read carefully, Warriors, it is in this section (and others throughout all the Budget bills I’ve been reading) that an increase in funding from P3s (public private partnerships) will be HOW the federal government funds our nation’s agencies AND programs! These funds will come by donation, be awarded as either competitive or non-competitive grants and/or sub-grants. These ‘awards’ will also be available to non-profit groups. All in the name of ‘student success’.

ctefail

5) HR 5894 (Union Calendar #539) is only 42 pages long and is what the House wants to see funding in FY 2109 for the entire Legislative Branch of the government. The tie to education can be found on page 26 via the Library of Congress’s $8.5 million for curriculum.  (*Note: this bill has a Committee Report you’ll want to read.)
S 3071 (Calendar #450) is 34 pages long. It has a VERY revealing Committee Report where you’ll see the CCSS Machine woven throughout. S 3071 also covers the FY 2019 Legislative Budget. One of the ties to education in the Senate Committee Report can be found on Page 16 with the Dept of Treasury’s Community Development Finance grants. Warriors, you’ll see that these grants can also be investments or loans. With ESSA’s mandate and funding increase to create 21st Century Community Learning Centers, this is a big red flag!

6) Warriors, these remaining bills cover most of the federal agencies with education overreach as well. Their ties to where in education will be in blue.

HR 6258 and S 3107 cover Financial Services/General Gov’t. (*Note S 3107 has a detailed Committee Report.) DC school improvement grants and the National Science Technology Council
HR 5952 and S 3072 cover Commerce/Justice/Science/Related Agencies (*Note: S 3072 has an accompanying Committee Report. The House’s Committee Report is here.) Economic development, census data collection, scientific research and information sharing technology.  Ties to CCR (College/Career Readiness, STEM, the United Nations and CTE)
HR 6072 and S 3023 cover Transportation/HUD/Related Agencies (*Note: the House Committee Report/Senate’s) Sustainable neighborhoods (of which you can probably tie to Promise Neighborhoods of ESSA), ties to the HEA (Higher Education Act), businesses testing higher education, national data collection, gives the Secretaries of Ed, Labor, HHS, Transportation, Commerce, the EPA, and the Attorney General leverage. 
HR 6157 and S 3159 cover the U. S. Dept of Defense (*Note: HR 6157 is currently in the Senate, as it has passed the House’s voting system. The Committee Report for HR 6157 is here. You can find the Senate’s here.) Gives more power to the Secretary of Education and LEAs (Local Education Agencies, at US Ed’s direction, over military base schools, targets Veterans and higher education, data mining, and data banks.
HR 5961 and S 2976 cover Agriculture/Rural Activities/FDA/Related Agencies (*Note: House Committee Report/Senate’s) Specifically refers to a national Bio/Ag Facility in KS, the Borlang International project, Food for Peace Grants, 12 education references, 10 science/technology priorities, and on Page 64 of HR 5961, portions of the budget must be used for science based educational information on the environment (this will lead to the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals of the UN and STEM).
S 3073 covers Interior/Environment/Related Agencies (*Note: The Committee Report) Education, especially as it relates to the Bureau of Indian Education’s alignment, is referred to in 31 different instances.
HR 6147  covers Interior/Environment/General  Gov’t/Agriculture/Rural Development/Food and Drug/Transportation and HUD (*Note: This Bill has passed both the House and the Senate. The House Committee Report is here. I’m including the plethora of amendment actions from both Chambers of Congress, as well.) Education is embedded a total of 65 times, Science (and as it relates to STEM in the various federal agencies) is embedded 22 times.
HR 5786 and S 3024 cover Military Construction/Veteran Affairs and Related Agencies (*Note: House Committee Report/Senate’s) Regional data collection, in the House Committee Report, education is embedded 24 times.
S 2975 covers Energy/Water Development (*Note: this Bill is sponsored by Sen. Lamar Alexander, father of ESSA lies about local control in education. The Senate Committee Report is here.) Specific use of funds for educational purposes.
HR 6385 and S 3108 cover State/Foreign Operations and Related Agencies (*Note: House Committee Report/Senate’s) In the House bill pages 3 and 4 cite the United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948; Fulbright Scholar program, and at least 34 other educational references embedded throughout. The Senate’s bill has 40 education overreaches.

foxxed

Closing:

Warriors, please note that in H Con Res 128, the 22 prioritized agencies have until Sept. 14, 2018 to trim their budgets. You can find the figures beginning on Page 44. For example, the Committee on Education, Job Training, Employment, and, Social Services must reduce their assigned $90 billion down to $70 billion.

In the Senate Committee Report related to S 3107, the following programs or offices are overreaching into education or items directly related to education services: The U.S. Treasury’s Capital Investment Plan, cyber-security, financial literacy, DATA Act, Government Accounting Office, The IRS’s TIGTA program, taxpayer data tracking, IRS’s Future State Vision, US Mint’s Community Development Financial Inst. Fund, Drug-Free Communities Support Program (ties to the Office of National Drug control Policy which partners with the US HHS’s Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Admin. in grants schools money), FCC’s IT Reform plans, Tech Modernization Funds, Harry S Truman Scholarship Funds

In the House Committee Report related to H 6147, the following programs or offices are overreaching into education or any directly related service: National Foundation of the Arts, the National Holocaust Museum (federally funded EXCEPT all educational materials which are privately funded), 21st Century Conservation Service Corps, National Endowment of the Arts/Humanities, Federal Land acquisitions to tie to World Heritage Sites, 3D Earn and Empower Program, Water Research Act, Core Science Systems Supports, Community Development Block Grants, BIE programs to align PreK to adult among the Native Americans, EPA’s expansion into STEM, Regional Innovation Clusters, and the Smithsonian’s expansion of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and, Math).

US fed statute

Warriors, look for an update article in mid September about all this. In the meantime, raise your voices against the continued abuse of our taxpayer funds, the overreach into education, our privacy, and all that connects them. This is NOT our American vision!

Formerly…

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in the last few days of July, I wrote and published a researched article centered on the former HR 2353, now Public Law 115-224, the “Strengthening CTE (Career Tech Education) for the 21st Century Act”. Warriors, the Bill became law when President Trump signed it on July 31, 2018. He was surrounding by lots of CTE ‘champion cheerleaders’.

07.31.2018_CTESigningOvalOffice
Interestingly enough, the PA Representative’s (Rep. Thompson, who was the chief sponsor of HR 2353) Press Release stated that this Bill (now Law) overhauls the former Perkins CTE Act of 2006. Speaking of THAT Act, I showed you back in 2014, how the Perkins Act re-branded ‘vocational technical’ to “Career and Technical”.
vocte

So, once again, the CCSS Machine has been playing agenda word games with the citizens ever since then. Trouble is, most Americans are still remember education is as it used to be and not fully grasping the toxic changes being sneaked in under some familiar phrasing. Still more troubling is that there is almost zero ‘education’ happening in CTE (Career Tech Ed). It’s roughly 98% workforce training.

voctegrave(Clipart by ClipArt Library, image is by @commoncorediva)

Warriors, links to my latest video about the new CTE (Career Tech Education) Law (formerly HR 2353, now Public Law 115-224). In the video, you’ll learn how the 2017 Executive Order 13801 plays into the Public Law 115-224 as well as connects directly to the new Executive Order 13845, signed July 19, 2018. (*Note, in the opening moments of my latest video, I mistaken identified HR 2353 as a resolution, it was a Bill.)

As I stated in the video, I’m providing much more information in this article.

Previous research into just what PL 115-224  (HR 2353) is going to set up for us across America:
1) From earlier this year, States are to take the CTE Pledge. After all, WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), STEM Act (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), HEA (Higher Education Act), and ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) all have!
2) From 2017. How HR 2353 would ‘level’ all education into the same thing. As we know, that was ESSA’s  goal all along.


3) To give you an idea of how eerily close the National Workforce Council created by EO 13845 is to the one laid out in the LADDER Act (as well as how ANY national council will data rape the citizens), read this article of mine.

alledformer(Clipart by ClipArt Library, image is by @commoncorediva)

Warriors, you’ll also definitely want to look at the May 2018 Executive Order 13801’s Final Task Force Report. In it you’ll see that the 3Rs have been sacrificed for the global economy rhetoric. How will this economic portion play out in schools? Career Technical tracks and ‘post-secondary readiness’, as laid out by ESSA.

formerusa(Clipart by ClipArt Library, image is by @commoncorediva)

Task Force Report Notes Previously Not Shared:
1) The entire Report is 51 pages long. Within these pages, the over all policy agenda is 4-fold: Educate, Expand, Control, and Attract (you’ll find this in the U.S. Dept. of Commerce’s Secretary Ross’s introductory letter.)

2) The Task Force created by EO 13801 (Expanding Apprenticeships) was broken into 4 sub-groups. 1) Education and Credentials; 2) Attracting Businesses to Education; 3) Expanding Access, Equity, and Career Awareness; and, 4) Administrating Regulatory Strategies.

3) From the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s Secretary Acosta’s opening letter, his goal was filling ‘insufficient’ skill gap apprenticeships*. The 26 steps the Task Force created will unfold over the next 5 years. *As ‘reported’ by public service, education, trade associations, labor unions, and companies.

4) From the U.S. Dept. of Education’s Secretary DeVos’s opening letter, her input was centered on President Trump’s expansion of apprenticeships. She claims it’s a NATIONAL priority as well as a NATIONAL education one. Her comments target ‘active learners’. She goes on to say the actions will speed up unity between education and jobs. How will this happen? Using more ‘flexible’ industry created learning models. This will, in turn, breed qualified workforce for the 21st Century. This type of qualified workforce will be key for the 21st economy, security, and, prosperity. This learning model will engage learners and be cost-effective for employers. Workforce based learning will a great way to learn, work, and earn. (*Note, underlined below will be the evidence we need showing the continued federal overreach ‘commitment’.)

Devosletter
5) From the U.S. Dept. of Commerce’s Secretary Ross’s letter. These 26 steps will update an 80 year old American system. He goes on to stress that the historic gains the President has made will be a carrot to fill high-skilled jobs. Sec. Ross mentions Rep. Foxx’s misinformation about the unfilled 6 million jobs in America. (*Note: be sure to scroll down to the comments section of the embedded article directly above.)

6) From the Report’s Executive Summary, the tone suggests that the entire woe of America is higher education, as in, colleges and universities! “When implemented correctly, apprenticeships will provide a career path!” (See Page 10)

7) From the 1st sub-group: Expand industry recognized apprenticeship programs, especially the ‘learn-to-earn’ ones; include CBE (competency based education) assessments; P3s (public private partnerships) clarify national portable credentials (national ID card for working); federal government identifies available resources to carry these activities out (industry sector led financing).

8) From the 2nd sub-group: use and streamline various funding streams in simple ways for attracting businesses to education (State incentives); study skill gap shortages (data rape/manipulation); U.S. Dept. of Labor centralizes all data between all participants.

9) From the 3rd sub-group: Federal government funds an all out advertising blitz (propaganda) to raise awareness for workforce based apprenticeships/aligned education; incentives by federal government to businesses for more ‘learn-to-earn’ programs; U.S. Dept. of Labor leads funding campaigns to create more community based efforts for aligned apprenticeships; improve the existing data base for the Registered Apprenticeship System.

10) From the 4th sub-group: Begin with pilot project for expanding CTE apprenticeships via a selected industry from the existing Registered Apprenticeship System. In that selected pilot: focus on mastery based learning and competency; cannot include the construction industry per the Davis-Bacon Act; base apprenticeship paychecks on a scale system to reflect competency; reform the existing Registered Apprenticeship System.

11) From the Introduction to the Report: Task Force actions began July 2017. Other meetings were held August 2017, November 2017, February 2018, March, April, and May 2018; the 4 sub-groups ‘cross pollinated’ their 26 steps to expanding CTE apprenticeships.

12) Also from the Introduction: Higher education (college) is letting Americans down; apprenticeships have a proven track record for affordability and relevancy in America; the U.S. Dept. of Labor has 4 pillars for all programs (apprenticeships included): provide your needs, manages your direction, earn money while you learn, and, rewards you with credentials. Total typical process time these programs take: 1-6 years.

13) Introduction continues with:
a) old apprenticeships were focused on construction and manufacturing. New ones will focus on healthcare, IT, transportation,energy, and logistics.
b) old pattern (in place since the 1930s) is the base for now; the U.S. Dept of Labor and States partner to ‘upskill and reskill’ citizens. Updates will remove all barriers for disabled, elderly to be included; create stable families (especially for low-income ones); improve economics and social community situations (cites a WA State example on Page 15); apprenticeships praised by bipartisan elected leaders, current and previous White House Administrations, and State Governors.
c) Page 16 will show you the huge ‘put down’ aimed at America’s colleges and universities.
d) Page 16 also shows the blatant lie that “Apprenticeships can offer a key component to the solution to the skills gap.” (Based off a Harvard University Business School Study. The irony is that Harvard partnered with Pearson to help create the myth of the ‘skills gap’ and helped create the Career Pathways as a solution. Career Pathways are a embedded part of CTE!)
e) Warriors, to me, this is the BIGGEST clue to just how globally minded D.C. has become while sacrificing our nation on the altar of our freedoms. The Task Force actually has the audaciousness to bring in how much American apprenticeships should copy the German and Swiss apprenticeships! (*Note: the European Union’s targeted youth ages are 16-24 years of age. That’s 8 years.)
See middle paragraphs on Page 17 for Germany and Switzerland). Be sure to look at the associated footnotes and see the CCSS Machine member groups/resources cited.

14) From the Section “Implementation Challenges”:
a) there are several complex and inter-related ones. Setting a tone of ‘us vs them’, here are what are considered to be challenges for the government:
i) student interest and engagement in ‘worker supply’
ii) parents lack ‘career awareness’
iii) youth do not grasp ‘viable’ tracks for prosperous futures
iv) businesses need better ‘career profiles’
v) communication needs include apprenticeship ‘design signals’ for skills needed
vi) more early career counseling especially for ‘middle skills’ to elevate the dignity of workforce apprenticeships
vii) increase ‘stackable credentials’, increase transportation for participants; increase P3s especially for flexibility in alignment.

eo13801cycle

15) Warriors, of the 26 action steps (which I gave in my latest video), will begin on Page 21 of the Report. Six steps will involve education/credentialing; Four will expand access, equity and career awareness. Three steps will go toward attracting businesses. The largest group belongs to the administration and regulations for apprenticeships and their implementation (which will be no doubt carried by Executive Order 13845’s created National Workforce Council) at 13 steps.

16) The Conclusion of the Report begins on Page 39. The most important information from this section is that businesses, labor unions, non-profits, trade and industry groups, education, and public officials are pleased to answer President Trump’s call to increase this type of programming in America. As Warriors, notice the ‘lifelong learning’ educratic phrase and how education/workforce aligned apprenticeships will break down American silos.

Closing:

Warriors, this doesn’t have to be our nation’s epitaph! This doesn’t have to be the future our children face, either. We must, I repeat, MUST, protect our families. How? Listen to the closing moments of the Women on the Wall call.

If you’re like me, you recognize the federal government’s propaganda is about to step up to never before seen proportions. CTE, apprenticeships, and all that goes with them are NOT America’s savior. They are NOT your family’s savior in any way, shape, form, or fashion.

There’s only one Savior in our lives, and it ISN’T aligned workforce based education!

Our Savior IS Jesus Christ.
God save us all as we go on from here. Pick up your swords, my Warriors.

The Set-up: An In-Depth Report

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, our Nation has just been shoved further down the ‘river of the damned’ in education.

How? The U.S. Senate, by a voice vote, passed the U.S. House’s “Strengthening Career Tech Education (CTE) in the 21st Century Act” (HR 2353).

By this passage, HR 2353, now advances to our President. The ‘mad dash’ rushing we are seeing play out? Oh, that’s 100% on purpose. Why? Look at the recent events surrounding this: a “Made in the USA” exhibit, Ivanka’s main stream media blitz, the big showcase of CCSS Machine groups surrounding President as he signed a NEW executive order on July 19th.
So, WHY is all the activity hyping up? Think about the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandate for ALL education to be ‘aligned to post-secondary readiness’. Then, consider the timeline which all was to be in place by: the beginning of the 2018-19 school year.

Warriors, we are quickly approaching the beginning of that ‘academic’ calendar!!

(To see the complete list of actions for HR 2353, visit this link.)

Think back, my fellow Warriors, we saw the same ‘rush’ job when it was time for ESSA to become law.

2015: This duo of articles ties STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) to the WIOA and HEA. As we know STEM is a tool of the United Nations to create global workforces.
(*Note: in 2010, the Obama Administration inserted STEM into education about the same time CCSS rolled into the classrooms. The point? A UN (via the NSF, National Science Foundation) directive: STEM education for STEM people to have STEM jobs to create a STEM economy for greater global good.”)

2015: The career based high schools begin popping up. Dangerous CCSS Machine groups push them out nationally.

2015: This duo gives you a look at the career ‘reassignments’ for adults. The workforce alignment isn’t simply for pre-K to 12th grade, Warriors: Even senior citizens are expected to be aligned!
Important note: ESSA was passed and signed into law by the end of 2015.

2016:
By August of 2016, WIOA was well in place, HEA was being discussed to be re-written, and ESSA was just getting off the ground, right? A look back at the truth.

2016: Before Rep. Kline left Congress, he got together with Sen. Alexander one last time to make sure their united efforts would live on in combining academics and workforce.

2016: By the end of 2016, the CCSS Machine was trying to convince us all “CCSS was dead”, that CCR, College and Career Readiness, was the ‘new’ kid on the scene and that our entire communities needed to get on the CCR/CTE ‘bandwagon’.

Back in 2016, the ‘sales pitch set-up’ for America was part of the “Better Way” scheming plan from Congress. Workforce globalism courtesy of Rep. Kline, Sen. Alexander, Rep. Ryan, and more.

To see a more recent Congressional view of CTE from Congress and the CCSS Machine, which shows how well the “Better Way”  ‘sales pitch’ has worked, look below.
(*Note: look for “Better Way” in the “We Have Answers” paragraph.)

2017: The quest for searching out the roots of the UN-directed shift in US education hit ‘pay dirt’ when I uncovered the workforce shifting evidence from Minnesota which dated back to the 1990s! Since, then EVERY State in America has this plan for workforce based learning.

2017: While bills like HR 2353 were getting much attention, here were just a few of the other workforce/education bills designed for complete alignment between education and jobs.

How The Past Has Met The Present:

Warriors, in 2016, I gave you these words, “You CANNOT have CTE without Common Core! No matter who you are. The CCSS Machine has spent years embedding CCSS, CTE (and STEM: Science, Technology, Math, and, Science) into 2 and 4 year colleges, apprenticeships..”

These tentacles embrace EVERY school choice and every citizen.
HOW? The goal is ‘cradle to grave’ workforce. Warriors, we are seeing this play out in present day 2018!!

From the files, is a picture of (then) President-elect Trump’s Plan. Warriors, this is happening right now!

Warriors, the evidence that our President supports CTE is overwhelming. Regardless of how  you feel about him personally, the truth is right before us.

As much as it appears the President is turning his back on us, the Vice President is probably doing some sort of happy dance over the CTE expansion. Why would I say that? Again, evidence speaks, NOT my opinion!

The horror and further shoving our nation done the ‘river of the damned’ is that by supporting and expanding CTE, the Trump Administration is supporting and expanding Common Core. Search the archives of campaign rhetoric and you’ll find that supporting and expanding CC wasn’t supposed to be what America got.

Coming To Fruition?!

In 2017, The U.S. Senate brought us a LADDER Act. This Bill was a huge ‘set up’ to globalism workforce AND socialism all in the same ‘place’. How’s that? My article detailed it well. The stark reality, is the most recent (July 19, 2018) Executive Order culled some of the same socialistic bullets from this LADDER! That EO is #13845.

*********************************
Presidential Slams:

Warriors, note, President Trump is only doing what every other President before him has done:
Used his Administration to grease the wheels of progressiveness, socialism, and Marxism. The ‘selling out’ of our freedoms (via education) will also be furthered by future Presidents and their Administrations.

Thus proving what and WHY the CCSS Machine churns on..we are the cogs which they need to make the wheels turn!


(*Note: The Presidential ‘greasiness’ dates back to the 1930s (and further). See the trail.) 

Lady Liberty Weeps 2
It hasn’t mattered who was President or what political party they represent when it comes to ruining real American education. Just look at the timelines which come with all the bogus educratic laws, mandates, and programs: 5 years, 10 years, etc.

For example, HR2353’s impact lasts until at least 2023.
*********************************************************************
Sure, all jobs and skills sound and look great, but our freedom is the intended price we’ll be sacrificing. How? Along with all the CCSS Machine workforce based education (which is WHAT CTE is) comes predetermined career tracks, NOT free choice.

The shift being so championed is a UN (United Nations) led one, plain and simple. So, for everyone embracing the expansion of CTE and apprenticeships (which are another global tool in the CCSS Machine’s toolbox), this visual is for you! This is WHAT you are truly embracing.

When did ‘reinventing education’ become code for Common Core?

An Older Trump EO Meets A New One:

In 2017, President Trump signed EO (Executive Order) #13801. This Order expanded apprenticeships, especially at the beck and call of P3s (public private partnerships). Ivanka Trump, during her recent press appearances, kept referring to P-Tech (part of the globally led CCSS Machine’s effort to redesign high schools into worker prep factories).
Warriors, remember: ESSA mandated an increase in P3s in K-12 education for ALL school choices!

Warriors, the Task Force which #13801 put into action has been meeting up until recently (2018). It’s job was to come up with ways in which education and jobs were not only ‘joined at the hip’, but the only way to learn. (Remember, the ESSA mandate about ALL education being the same?!) The agenda from #13801 is being carried out in the new #13845 (see the link above).
Here are the 26 Agenda driven ‘suggestions’ from the #13801’s Task Force:

13801

Warriors, #13845 establishes a nation-wide council to oversee and micro-manage not only education, but labor in all 50 States. Does anyone remember that BOTH these federal departments are unconstitutional and therefore ILLEGAL?! The proposed merging of these two as well as the relaxed child labor laws play directly into the expansion of CTE and the apprenticeships!

Lastly, #13845 brings about the shift of education, control, AND, continued loss of individual freedoms! It also brings all the actions of every other related law and program under the thumb of FEDERAL government, not LOCAL control! #13845 brings to life #13801! It INCREASES government!!

Closing:

Warriors, we must note that the CTE overload, the apprenticeship rush, and the alignment intended for every single citizen is NOT only for students, but the teachers, too.

It’s for Johnny and Suzy, Johnny and Suzy’s parents, and, Johnny and Suzy’s grandparents. This shift is also for Johnny and Suzy’s children. I’ve lots more information I need to share, so watch for an upcoming Facebook Live video from me. I’ll be sure to give you all you need to know to resist this!
