Expanding ESSA

Anti Fed Ed Warriors,

Just when we thought ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) couldn’t get any MORE nanny-state like, a new House of Representatives bill comes along to blow that right out of the water. I’m talking about HR 804. As the language of the Bill introduces it, ‘to amend the ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965)’.

monopolists

Why does DC continue to refer to ESSA’s former name and not use its current one? The answer is simple, everything in ESEA was codified in ESSA’s ‘update’, so that means every bit of NCLB (No Child Left Behind), RttT (Race to the Top), and everything which binds it all up in one stinky package is STILL in place!

HR 804, Transition to Success Mentoring Act:
(Bill link)
As the summary states it, Warriors, this Bill will give grant money to eligible groups to establish or expand school based mentoring for ‘at-risk’ middle school students heading to high school.  Sounds great, right? Look between the lines, my friends.
a) ‘At risk’ is the ESSA/ESEA label for any student outside a government determined set of parameters.
b) ‘At risk’ is nebulous on purpose. It’s a back door way to ensnare homeschool students, students who don’t fit in, students who are homeless, and so on.
c) ‘Eligible groups’ doesn’t mean at school, it means any of the ESSA/ESEA mandated P3s (public private partnerships) which qualify for predetermined government assigned parameters. Look at some of the after school groups and their ideals/morals. Are these really the people you want mentoring your child? Why is the government overreaching into the middle school to high school transition, anyway? Those sensitive years should be the parents responsibility, NOT the federal nannies!
d) “Mentoring” is a safe word for behavior interventions and mental health overreaches.

Think I’m overreacting? Let’s see…

This mentoring bill is sponsored by Rep. Carson (IN). It has 3 co-sponsors, Soto (FL), Moore (WI), and, Norton (DC). Below, is a screen shot of Rep. Carson’s website statement on education.

Warriors, if you are curious, Mr. Carson’s 2nd top campaign donor was Eli Lilly and Company. Eli Lilly has a powerful lobbying effort in DC for all kinds of health related items, including well adjusted youth. If you’d like to read up on the Eli Lilly Indiana SEL (Social Emotional Learning) mental health/mentoring grabs, visit their “Strengthening Students’ Pathways” page.

**Warriors, this isn’t the first time counselors have been assimilated into the CCSS Machine. Before Pres. Obama left office, he started the School Counselor alignment through an initiative which was to use these school staff members as salespeople for workforce aligned career tracks.

Why bring that up now? The ESSA re-authorization of ESEA mandated that ALL education be aligned to post-secondary readiness for workforce aligned education. The SEL shift we’ve seen plays right into the ‘readiness’ in several ways. Especially under the guise of forcing students to be emotionally ‘ready’ before they naturally mature. ESSA also handled this shift in a variety of other mandates, specifically expanded school staff for behavior management and mental health services.

Mentoring falls under BOTH of these categories!!

 

HR804

What Else HR 804 Does:

Warriors, from this 10 page bill, if made into federal law would use an increased amount of taxpayer funds for ‘prevention and intervention’ for students who are ‘at risk’, ‘neglected’ or/and ‘delinquent’.

Side Notes:**Since more and more States are having to dance to the federal ESSA tunes, this is where home education will be hit hard. How? States are introducing legislation to classify homeschoolers as ‘neglected’ or somehow ‘at risk’. IL has HB 3560; PJMedia also has a report on this Bill. Be sure to read the article and comments. NV reports some dire issues with freedom to homeschool there; IL has a 2nd bill which will lump homeschoolers into the CCSS Machine, then there’s CA. (The NV report will include some information on the CA overreaches.) GA is also considering clamping down on home education. TX is pushing an entire mental health hub system for ALL students via SB 10 and HB 1448. MN has a record 6 bills which seek to rip families apart with all the mentoring/mental health birth to 5 overreaches.

As you can see the WHO’s idea of mental health overreaches mirrors that of America’s!

*Federal Bill HR 804’s price tag is $50 million for FY 2020 alone. Fiscal years after that will be as much as Congress believes mentoring needs.
*As usual, Congress has created a bill, that if turned into law, gives the Secretary of Education MORE power.
*Any group (including a school) must submit an application to receive grant money. Anything the Secretary deems necessary, as far as information (aka: data), applicants must supply.
*Awarded grants MUST be used in mandated ways as laid out in HR 804:

 

*HR 804 allows for hiring coaches, but doesn’t say what limitations or requirements these coaches are to have.
*Grants are to be used for 5 years or less.
*Reports of what number of students, their academic data, how many hours were spent between Coaches and their students, and anything else the Secretary of Education deems as necessary to evaluate ‘success’. By the end of the 3rd fiscal year, the Secretary must pass data to the Congress. By the end of the 5th year, Congress will make a final report.
*“At risk students are defined by grade point averages (2.0 or below) or has been deemed as ‘at risk for academic failure’ by parents, teachers, or other educational ‘experts’. At risk extends to those who want to drop out, may have substance issues, be pregnant, been in trouble with the law, is a parent, doesn’t speak English well, is a gang member, or has been absent from school repeatedly. (a full description of ‘at risk’, eligible groups, are on Pages 7 and 8)

* Success Coaches are defined as anyone in school administration, from a community-school partnership or volunteer who wishes to serve. Service includes training and support. The training is to be at a minimum of 2 hours, have a screening (includes background check, child abuse, and job references).

Warriors, do you have as many warning bells going off in your heart and head as I do?

Closing:

As one of my dear anti Fed Ed Warriors, in ID has stated, this battle is ours to lose. We MUST speak out. Our naturally given parental responsibility as our child’s BEST mentor is under attack! Our naturally given parental choice to home education is also under attack. Will we remain passive while Rep. Carson backed by Eli Lilly;  while TX, GA, IL, NV, CA and other States ursurp our power to nurture our children.
HR 804 expands ESSA in harmful ways. We cannot allow this.

Parents!! Please…STOP HR 804 Please STOP your States!

A Scientific Ploy

**Third in a Series of 116th Congressional Bills overreaching into education

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, after 10 years of research and 5 years of blogging, the trails connecting educratic overreach literally span the globe.

By far and away, the most ‘picked upon’ school subject shoving the CCSS Machine agenda down our throats is SCIENCE

Why science? Well, if you look at the history of science, it was a way in which to explore the wonder and awe of God’s creation. It was a way in which discoveries truly made life better. It was a way to learn which truly delighted the senses and helped create imagination.

Fast forward to near the Renaissance time and secular humanism entered the picture. This was the very beginning of divorcing God from science. To this day, there are many who embrace that science is more credible than God. Vice versa, those who still regard science as a way in which to discover and better life, see the two as intertwined. 

The reason this type of context is important leads to our modern day education reform which so pivots off science.  The ‘teaching’ of science has become a former shadow of greatness.
Science, especially as the UN (United Nations) and UNESCO have spun it, has BECOME a god.
Why does that matter in the US?

Because the United States has adopted the UN/UNESCO’s ‘science as a god’ mentality via STEM and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math/Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and, Math).


IF you’d like to see (for the first time or as a review) my extensive amount of research into how embedded the U.S. Government, including Congress, has made STEM/STEAM. Here is the link  for STEM/STEAM/UNESCO (2 pages). Here’s the link for STEM/STEAM/UN (7 pages).

Below are the most relevant which will connect to the new Bill from the 116th Congressional session.

From 2015, the traceable connections from the CCSS to STEMtoSTEAM shift for every single educational choice and age available in the United States.

From 2016, the CCSS and UNESCO ideology match to incorporate STEM into CTE (Career Tech Education), CCR (College and Career Readiness). Next Gen Social Studies and Next Gen Science would follow suit. The crux of the ideology? Collectivism in life, belief, and action all to sustain the Earth.

From 2018, how BOTH major political parties have inserted, supported, and, codified UN agenda into US legislation and programs to usher in STEM/STEAM via infrastructure, as well as education.

From  August 2018, the FY 2019 STEM budget earmarked $150 million from one Chamber of Congress and $160 million from the other. Then, add in an Executive Order expanding apprenticeships which include STEM/STEAM.

From October 2018, how STEM budget money and programs stoop to exploit gender, involve social impact bonds, and, create havoc in education as well as the nation.

 

STEM, by way of Common Core..and not in a distant galaxy.


Meet The Representative Behind HR 627:

HR 627 was introduced by Rep. Rob Wittman of VA. Below, is a screen shot from Rep. Wittman’s Congressional website. (*Note: the added rhetorical question is one I’ve longed to ask EVERY Congress member and President since 2009!!)


Of Rep. Wittman’s “Issues”, education is dead last on the list. However, the Representative does brag about his service during the 115th Session in pumping up CTE and STEM for education.  I encourage you to enlarge this screen shot or open in a new tab. The dynamics of the language used is almost comical, if this wasn’t so tragically real.


HR 627’s Language:

Warriors, this House of Representatives Bill is called the ‘STEM Research and Education Effectiveness and Transparency Act’. HR 627 is  5 pages long. It’s currently in the House Committee of Science, Space, and Technology.
1) As we’ve seen so many times in STEM/STEAM related initiatives, programs, funding, and bills or laws, HR 627 targets women and under-served minorities for STEM jobs and careers.
2) It directs the NSF (National Science Foundation), to direct the entire program being expanded (ie: bigger government overreach). It was the NSF, the UN influenced to force STEM into President Obama’s agenda which has been extended by President Trump.
3) Involves any US federal agency with $100 million in FY 2019 Research and Development earmarked funds.
4) Ties to the HEA of 1965 (Higher Education Act, currently being updated for a renewed passage). Grants and merit awards in Research/Development will be given for STEM in higher education and government jobs. Any federal laboratory job awarded or given under HR 627 parameters are defined by the Stevenson-Wydler Technology Innovation Act of 1980, Sect. 4.* (a brief explanation of what the public law established is below.) What HR 627 will do is EXPAND upon that foundation for use in #5.
5) Expands the data tracking of students as well as economic and demographics. (aka: ‘data rape’).
6) Expands the NSF power and authority (an independent US government agency). The Director of the program HR 627 sets up will be housed in the Office of Science and Technology Policy (Executive Branch).
7) Includes the Congressional catch all phrase ‘and other purposes’.
8) No less than 1 year after HR 627 is made into law (if it survives), the NSF will report (per the Section 37 of the NSF Authorization and Science and Technology Equal Opportunity Act; brief explanation below) to Congress how effective efforts to target women and underrepresented populations have been. Whatever efforts have been successful will be credited to the universal streamlining of data. What isn’t successful will be tweaked and streamlined. ALL data will backtrack to the past 5 years as well.
9) Defines STEM as per the America COMPETES Act, 42 U.S. C. 6621 note (description below) of 2010.

i) Stevenson-Wylder Technology Innovation Act of 1980 established technology centers around the nation to support the innovation in commerce, economics, environment, and social well-being of Americans. Here’s an excerpt from the Public Law 96-480 Cooperation among academia, Federal laboratories, labor, and industry, in such forms as technology transfer, personnel exchange, joint research projects, and others, should be renewed, expanded, and strengthened.” Section 4 (page 2), defines the Secretary of Commerce is in power. Also defines ‘non-profits’. Education is thrown in, too.
**HR 627 will double up on the data sharing.
ii) Public Law 96-516 (“National Science Foundation Authorization and Science
and Technology Equal Opportunities Act”.) stated that beginning in 1982, every 2 years the NSF must include the U.S. Dept. of Education, U.S. Dept. of Labor, the U.S. Dept. of HHS, and others in its data reports.
iii) America COMPETES Act of 2010, 42 U.S. C. 6621 note basically made STEM a federal entity with its own law, funding, activities, and more, especially in education. Public private partnerships (P3s) were also included. The 2010 Act (scroll down to the summary) was a re-authorization of an earlier COMPETES Act. “COMPETES” is short for ‘Creating Opportunities to Meaningfully Promote Excellence in Technology, Education, and Science’

 (*Note: there was an America COMPETES Act 2015 version I wrote about, which also can be tied to the HR 627 above)

 


Closing:

Warriors, I hope you can see that once again, the 116th Congress isn’t really promoting excellent education or terrific jobs. This entire series I’m writing all has ONE word in common: data. HR 627 expands government, but it also expands the data tracking, BUT it’s using STEM to accomplish it.  As was written in the 2010 PCAST Report about STEM:  it would make us STEM people in a STEM nation with a STEM workforce for a STEM economy to gel with the globalism. How’s that for making science a god and turning us into minions, not free willed people to bow to the UN’s agenda?! This is what your federal government of the US has set into place.

Next up in this series: the GREAT Act(s).

It Isn’t All Sunshine And Nuts

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my last article, I shared with you how HR 62 would make a grab for our babies from a federal level. Included in that article was how MN is struggling to keep parents in control of their families.

The article before that,  I  showed you how FEPA (Foundations for Evidence-based Policy Making Act) would also assist in the grab for our babies, I showed you how OR was considering in-home visits. Also included was how UT has them firmly in place.

In both articles I stressed that the grab for babies/the in-home visits is not exclusive to one State. It’s in all the States and US territories ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) money goes to. If it hasn’t shown up in your State yet, hang on, it is in the works.

GA is struggling with recent news. So are KS and CT.

***For the remainder of this article, I share information sent to me concerning some other warning bells from the latest 3. Be sure to compare it to the information from OR, UT, and MN.

While the tactics may differ a bit, the overall goal of aligning babies to the CCSS Machine is the same. The CCSS Machine pushes ‘readiness’ at all levels, now, since ESSA, and the mandate to expand early childhood ‘learning’, as well as universal PreK, this is why we’re seeing SO much in the news.

1233416_726644914053517_244803995707399755_n
First Up, KS, The Sunflower State:

Warriors, Lisa H., shared this with me via email and wanted you to know about their ABC Program. No, it’s not for teaching little ones their alphabet. It’s called the Attachment Bio-Behavioral Catch-up Program.

 

Lisa shared that the group behind this Program (the United Methodist Health Ministry Fund) was on last year’s legislative calendar and appeared before the KS Education Committee. They are scheduled to appear before the KS Education Committee again this yearn for a follow up. The email went on to share that SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency, a part of the US Dept. of HHS), as well as others are fully backing removing ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences).

So is the CCSS Machine, Warriors, only it’s not for school readiness as much as it is micro-managing citizens. I wrote about this push headed up by the Rockefellers and being embraced by churches, law enforcement, etc. in my Resilience articles. )

What are Lisa’s concerns? Swabbing children’s mouths for cortisol levels and recording the entire in-home session with the parents and children.

While some may read this and think, “Oh, that’s not too bad.” The reason this ministry is able to intrude like this is due to the expansion of P3s (public-private partnerships) in ESSA for education! The in-home visits are part of ESSA’s supposed dedication to student achievement and family engagement.

hegelianed

What it REALLY is, is home invasion by the government. Take into consideration that our U.S. Constitution was supposed to prohibit such (4th Amendment), but with FEPA actively neutering 9 U.S. Constitutional Amendments, the 4th is severely at risk. FEPA also will tie to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996). Which, as we know, is used in health care.

Related for KS and other States:
The United Methodist Health Ministry was awarded $650,000.00 by the Kansas Early Childhood Initiative (part of the Kansas Health Foundation) under “access to care”. The Grant was given in 2017 and ends in 2020. The ‘access’ is the ABC Program. The Kansas Health Foundation is a massive P3 and was created as the result of the Hospital Corporation of America purchasing the non-profit Wesley Hospital.

Hospital Corporation of America can be found in 20 States and the United Kingdom. From their latest Annual Report (2017), this quote, “Within our markets, we worked to broaden our service line capabilities by investing in cancer, trauma, stroke, behavioral health and pediatric services. This focus centers on elevating clinical performance and
establishing consistent clinical protocols to achieve better patient outcomes across the
organization.” HCA receives Medicare/aid funding from the federal government, as well as private investors on the Stock Exchange. On page 15, you’ll see how HCA has psychiatrics listed as a way to compete in health care. Page 42 admits the use of third party data contractors to handle patient data. Page 46 gives the list of  the 20 States and the United Kingdom information.

Also joining with the United Methodist Health Ministry is the Kansas  Children’s Service League (KCSL). It’s a part of the National Prevent Child Abuse America. The KCSL is all about collaboration. As in the ‘village’ concept as shared by this Kansas educratic leader.

Kansas has embedded (2015)  a State Wide Initiative called “Kansans Can”. A vital part of the KC Initiative? The “Kansas Can: School Redesign Project”. Warriors, as we know that’s 100% U.S. Dept. of Ed fodder.

 

Next, Stop: GA (Peach State):

Warriors, you may know Georgia is personally, very dear to me. That said, the grab for babies is just as bad in the Peach State as it is in the Sunflower State.

Recently, it was announced that the PreK Development Grant the State received would go to DECAL. DECAL (Dept. of Early Care and Learning) will be“Using grant funds, DECAL will conduct a statewide ECCE needs assessment; develop a statewide strategic plan to strengthen the state’s ECCE system; create resources to inform families about available programs and services; develop groups and opportunities for early childhood educators to share best practices; and create supports for the state’s dual language learners and their families.” (*Note: ECCE is short for Early Childhood Care and Education.)

Under DECAL, the early learning program is called “Bright From the Start”. Warriors, look at the ‘peach packed agenda’ below:

Also, recently in GA , and via Senate Bill 15, the push to expand ‘school safety’ (another ESSA mandate) into private schools. In GA, that also includes homeschoolers. Warriors, as you’ve known, I’ve been warning for years that the federal overreaches in ESSA would assimilate these families.
This will increase, not only the intrusion into family homes, but also set up more data mining and control by Homeland Security Agencies.

Lastly, The Nutmeg State, Connecticut:

Warriors, one of my Anti Fed Ed Warriors,  Anne M. in CT, recently posted a picture about the United Way of CT’s grab for babies and their Moms.

Here’s a screen shot of the United Way in Anne’s community.

Also tied to the (National Inoperability Collective) NIC, is David Wilkinson. Wilkinson, according to his LinkedIN profile as a Director of the White House Office of Social Innovation (under Pres. Obama). You can also tie Wilkinson to the Ounce of Prevention Fund. Back in 2016, I shared with you the OPF’s grab at children via ESSA.

The 2018 NIC Symposium notes and speakers can be located here. The NIC announcement about the Symposium is where you’ll see the ‘wheel house’.

For All The States:

United Way is tied to Google and the United Nations, so, of course, ‘cradle to career’ is the alignment. United Way is partners with the CCSS Machine in many other ways and groups as well.

From 2016, United Way, President Obama’s Promise Neighborhoods (which was a codified mandate in ESSA), U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development and “Youth Build”. Also from that year, United Way and those ‘wrap around services’.

From 2017, United Way and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) for cradle to career coding.

If you would like to see the United Way’s influence on the current NC State Superintendent,  read this from the election season of 2016. Collectivism was/is the name of the game.

Closing:

Warriors, the cradle to career, then grave will keep being seen in the news as the ESSA mandates continue to ursurp the Tenth Amendment. In my next article, we’ll look at the federal misguidance on ‘school choice’ and the 116th’s bill to support the deception.

Expansion At What Cost?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, with all the attention being focused on the DC circus-like behavior, did you know the U.S. House passed a Bill late last week? This Bill (HR 6757) is a thief dressed as taxpayer savings. The thief is headed straight for the schools and our homes, too.

PA Rep. Mike Kelly introduced HR 6757 in early September 2018. As of the end of September, it’s heading for the U.S. Senate. Fast tracked Bills mean the CCSS Machine is up to something, Warriors.

The House voted 240-177 in favor of this Bill. Currently, HR 6757 is in the Finance Committee of the Senate.

Warriors, the bottom line surrounding HR 6757 is this:
Expansion of government to create the ‘end’ of school choice discrimination. How? By messing with our taxpayer dollars. (*Note: Jeb Bush, a huge CCSS Machine member has been pushing ESAs, education savings accounts for quite a while. So has Sen. Lamar Alexander. Sen. Alexander was also one of the major Congress members who promised America that ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act, would give education back to the States. He lied about that, Warriors, he’s lying about ESAs, too. Lastly, Heritage Foundation and Sen. Alexander have a connection. Heritage is in full support of ESAs under the illusion of ‘school choice’.)
nochoice

HR 6757 seeks to amend the Internal Revenue Code from 1986, too. Supposedly, if enacted, it will save families TONS of money (The Bill is called the Family Savings Act).

Warriors, you may well remember that the 1980s brought us President Reagan. Reagan chose Charlotte Iserbyt to help end the U.S. Dept. of Education. She was fired instead. Mrs. Iserbyt has been warning us since the 1980s about the globalization of American education; how education savings accounts will be used as tax schemes to turn schools into workforce prep institutions.

16gravy

What is Congress REALLY setting us up for with bills like HR 6757, Warriors? Look below:

couponmessage
(Source)

Our current President (Trump) and Vice President (Pence) even used school choice and vouchers as part of their plan upon coming into Office. President Obama was big on ‘choice’ and the expansion of charters.

From 2017, Freedom Project Media’s 3rd video in their series called “Alternative Education in the Crosshairs”. This segment laid out the illusion of school choice and ESAs. If you’d like to view the other 3 segments, here’s my article featuring them.

But, Wait…The Media Said HR 6757 Is Good:

Warriors, very few major media outlets reported on HR 6757’s passage by the House. The spin was sunshine and roses, too.
PR Newswire shared the Family Research Council’s article about how applause-worthy HR 6757 is.

FRCpraise
Warriors, not to discredit FRC, but the ties to the U.S. Sec. of Education DeVos and her family are woven throughout this Christian based Council.

Let’s also raise THIS question:
If we’re going to start education savings for unborn children, when will the control of their education and/or taxation of them begin?

Breibart News also shared the news, although not quite as cheerful as the FRC’s.

Warriors, we’ve seen the huge controversy unborn children involve. Do we really need to throw education into the mix, too?! Are we so addicted to seeing DC play with fire (so to speak) in relation with our children that we’d actually be alright with HR 6575? I would hope not!

From TaxFoundation.org’s website, the news about HR 6757 is not only welcome, it ties to other D.C. Legislation which impacts not only taxes, but our freedom. The article I’ve included gives you a good basic understanding of the new Universal Savings Accounts.

taxsupport
What these USAs (Universal Savings Accounts) can achieve sounds great. However, Warriors, similar systems are already in place in Canada and the United Kingdom. The U.S. House of Representatives’s Bill HR 937 (Universal Savings Account Act) is sponsored by Rep. Brat from VA. Over in the Senate Sen Flake from AZ, introduced S 2320 for USAs.

The most disturbing part? The language of these types of accounts has the government in the driver’s seat and will ‘allow’ you to open savings accounts! If we’re putting the government in charge of our savings AND education, where will our freedoms stand?!

FryingPanFire250_250

 

Look To The HR 6757 Committee Report:

Warriors, don’t simply stop at the language of HR 6757. Like the FY 2019 Appropriations Bills, The Family Savings Act has a Committee Report. If we’re going to better understand the strings this updated IRS Code will have, it will be here. While HR 6757 is a mere 98 pages, the Committee Report is well over 300 pages.

Title 3 of HR 6757 is where you’ll find the USAs, the Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) and more. However, remember, that in Congressional legislation, each part or title of a bill builds off the other titles. So, don’t simply skip to Title 3, look at Titles 1 and 2, first. Then, look beyond Title 3 for more strings.

I urge you to look on your own in the Committee Report for HR 6757. You’ll find that ‘education’ is embedded 120 times. You’ll read that these tax changes will begin AFTER Dec. 31, 2018 and extend to all the years beyond then. (*Note: you’ll see the initials JCT, this is short for Joint Committee on Taxation.)

Below are just a few of the CCSS Machine moves HR 6575 will bring to fruition:
a) play upon the DC led expansion of registered apprenticeships (will tie to CTE, Career Tech Education, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math), College and Career Readiness (CCR), and more.
b) assimilates homeschooling families and pays special attention to dual enrollment
c) Page 20: education loan repayments
d) Page 44: tax sheltered annuities and education
e) Page 71: tax advantaged savings and education for the disabled
(*Note: also on Page 71, you’ll see the clear definition of 529 College Savings Plans. They are the government’s, not yours. You’ll also see Coverdell Accounts. Look especially to the section called “Reasons for Change”. This will explain WHY Congress wants to change the tax codes.)
f) Page 73: The blow by blow account for expanded 529 programs
g) Page 75: More “Reasons for Change”. From my ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) research, this is a blatant grab on homeschoolers across America. Also on Page 75, direct ties to the National Apprenticeship Act. What 529 changes will occur (costs associated with apprenticeships, especially in higher education; home education expenses; and, qualified education loans spread out over your lifetime.)

Related:

Warriors, we know there have been Bills amending IRS tax codes before. Their purpose? To act as a back door to overtaking education. Back in 2017, I showed you how S 1193 and HR 2865 were proposed to amend taxes for P3s in education. These ‘sisters’ would allow for businesses to control education. (*Note: look for items #3 and 4 in the linked article above.)

If you’d like to see Forbes’ take on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and how it may impact our unborn children, read this.

Warriors, because there is no real school choice in ESSA and because our tax codes are shifting to reflect globalism, we know education has followed suit. How? Collectivism!

Lastly, my fellow Warriors, if you think of ESAs as a ‘pay for success’ scheme (which they are being spun this way for Native Americans), you’ll get a shock. We need this type of ‘wake up’ call.

Closing:

Warriors, we knew the CCSS Machine’s grasp on education was HUGE. We knew ESSA and the mandates would level school choice (remember, those 529 Savings Programs and Vouchers were supposed to give more choice, but it’s an illusion we cannot afford to buy into).

We knew Congress overreached into education. But this? This isn’t so much about education. It’s about top-down control..of our money, how we spend it, where we save it.
It’s about limiting YOUR voice in your own life..and the lives of your children! This isn’t about academics, it’s about a boosted economy (part of why we have income and taxes).
It’s about being shackled for a lifetime of servitude. This IS not OUR AMERICA!

Will you stand up against this tyranny? Our government is stealing us blind. We MUST fight back.

Under Our Noses

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it hundreds of times that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) is a coined acronym in use to deceive us all.
Yes, I know, I’ve heard it before, “But, Lynne we’ve always had science and math. We’ve had engineering in the past and technology, too.”
HOWEVER, Warriors, the deception is that by creating an acronym with things we are familiar with, the agenda is easier to be implemented.

What do I mean? A few years ago, I wrote an article showing you how the NSF, National Science Foundation (a government funded agency of the USA), was tasked to come up with a marketing tool to ‘win’ the nation over with.

WHY? Evidence suggests their ties with the UN (United Nations). More to the point the UN’s damnable SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). STEM was (and is) the vehicle to change the course of education. At least according to the UN SDG Toolkit (created here in America). (*Note: you can access and read the Toolkit for yourselves. Look for the link under the Paragraph “From 2002”. The sentence beginning with “Tool Kit” is where you’ll find the document.)

THEN, once the acronym was selected, the President (Obama) had to be influenced. I also revealed HOW he was influenced (a PCAST Report).  (*Note: when you go back and read the embedded links, you’ll notice that the Presidential influence began well before President Obama, especially in regards to the NSF.)

pressurecooker

So, what WAS the agenda and does it still survive under our current President?

Agenda: STEM ushered in about the same time as Common Core, so no one would notice. Use STEM to create a STEM people with a STEM education for STEM jobs and a STEM economy. In other words more mastery based education, or as it’s been sold to us, competency based education (CBE). Why CBE? Skilled workers. Skilled in STEM, that is.

Is the Agenda surviving? Absolutely! In fact, President Trump is a huge supporter of STEM because it means jobs. As we know, jobs means economy.

However, Warriors, the STEM economy is NOT for America, it’s for the global good and their economy.

U.S. Sec. DeVos has done an outstanding’ job of promoting STEM, too. Since STEM is global and she has seen it as her duty to sell our nation out to global mastery based education, you can be assured STEM will be popping up in current proposed DC legislation.

STEM In Legislation for 2018 And Beyond:

Warriors, right now, we are nearing the end of Fiscal 2018. On October 1, 2018, our government begins FY 2019.Currently,  STEM is woven into several of the FY 2019 Budget Bills. I shared with you, back in August, several of the ways in which, not only STEM would live on, but the top-down educratic control.

The biggest ways STEM will survive, as well as the educratic control are apprenticeships, CTE (Career Tech Education), College/Career Readiness, and P3s (public private partnerships).

STEM’s P3 Legislation:

Warriors, if you’ve not seen what a STEM P3 would look like, consider NASA.

More recently, there’s been concocted a lesser known legislative bill.
It’s HR 5119, simply titled The P3 Act. This Act was introduced back in February 2018 and hasn’t seen much action (if any) since then. However, what the Bill contains cannot be acted upon until there’s the money to bring its agenda to fruition!

hr5119

ICYMI: The researched evidence behind the Harvard/Pearson project turned educratic overreach. You can also learn more from this archived article.

So what does the P3 Act stand for, Warriors? After all, every DC Bill has some sort of acronym to it. “P3” in this instance stands for  ‘‘Partnerships for Progress and Prosperity Act’’. It’s a fancy way to ‘dress up’ the regular P3 meaning (public private partnership). The Bill has one sponsor and 5 co-sponsors and is currently in the U.S. House of Representative’s Education and Workforce Committee. Rep. Bill Foster from IL is the sponsor. If you look at Foster’s campaign donations the U.S. Dept. of Energy contributed the most money. If you look at the committees Foster serves the nation in, Energy in among them.
(*Note: in 2017, in Foster’s district, Joliet Junior College received a NSF Grant for STEM.)

Here’s how the P3s will play into STEM and ‘education’:
1) Requires the U.S. Dept. of Ed to award grants to LEAs (Local Education Agencies) for STEM, exclusively.
2) The grants MUST be used in the following ways:
a) to improve education in K-12 and higher education institutions
b) every awardee is required to  partner with a STEM business or employer
c) internships and apprenticeships are mandated to be included
d) development of STEM curricula and metrics
e) dual credit courses are mandated
f) tutoring/mentoring in STEM, especially for underrepresented student groups
g) STEM activities and events outside the schools and in the communities are mandated for teachers and students
h) after-school STEM and summer STEM programs
i) purchase of STEM resources for STEM instruction

The U.S. Dept of Education (in these STEM grants) will pay special attention to any LEA who promotes STEM for students/teachers; uses tech based content; pairs mentors/tutors with students struggling to meet STEM benchmarks; and/or targets low-cost or free lunch eligible students.

One last mandate from the P3 Act for STEM: all grant award ‘winners’ MUST match 50 % of their award. The fifty percent must be non-federal funds and can be in cash or ‘in kind’ (which means any type of support in exchange for work or other services like free food or free housing.
(*Note: cash received in this manner is non-taxable. In kind can be claimed as a tax write off by the giver, but not the receiver unless otherwise advised.)

workforcenochoice

Warriors, when you read this 8 page Bill (HR 5119), you’ll see the familiar educratic buzzwords/phrases like ‘rigorous’, ‘evidence based’, ‘engagement’ (especially in the classroom), and my personal ‘favorite’: “high quality research”. Now the irony of this entire Bill is that is based of RECOMMENDATIONS, not objective facts.

The Bill also cites the PISA (Program for International Student Assessment), which is geared for not only CCR (College/Career Readiness) aka: Common Core, but the OECD’s (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) workforce based global system of CBE (Competency Based Education).

OECD is where the horrible label of ‘human capital’ comes from.

Closing:

Warriors, if ever there’s a time to be bucking the system it’s now. Those chilling words (at least to me) about the STEM people for a STEM nation are playing out right under our noses. Are we so stuffed with compliance and apathy, we don’t smell the stench of agenda? The agenda TAKES our freedom! The agenda erodes our education! formerusa

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!!

voicevote
(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.

essagoal

Here’s a timeline BEFORE I show you some of the latest information. The timeline will help you better ‘connect the dots’.

****************************************************************************
A Timeline:

If you’d like to see the ‘sales pitch’ from 2014, where CTE was being pumped up by Congress and the CCSS Machine (it’s the featured shot for this article), here it is in full form:
What_Is_CTE_infographic

2014: Where the ‘career clusters’ and ‘career readiness’ supporters and their alignment to Common Core were beginning to surface.

2014: The ‘skills gap’ fallacy begins (so to speak.)
Important note: WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) was made into law in 2014. It specifically tied work/labor to education.

supportworkopposecore
Legislative sessions across America are embracing Workforce.

***********************************

2015: The ‘labor reform’ (aligning education to jobs) hits the HEA (Higher Education Act of 2008).

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.
ESSA gift*******************************

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!

trumpplan

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!

iceburg

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.

ladder

*********************************
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.
1511175_703966932968744_1083625628_n

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.

mullercore
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!!

ESSAskel


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!

By Association

Greetings, my fellow anti Fed Ed Warriors and anti Globally Led Education Warriors!

Recently, while discussing the state of American education via 2 interviews, the topic of internationally based teaching groups surfaced. I thought it might be a great time to check up and see exactly what some of the latest moves are.
Knot-figure-of-eight-knit-clipart-etc

ICYMI:

Warriors, here are my archived articles exposing the American ties from teachers unions/groups to those of international status. With ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) being set into place, these ties are super important to keep up with. Why? The shift in American education is globally supported!

June 2017: global ‘data raping’ of our students
February 2017: AFT(American Federation of Teachers) and NEA’s (National Education Association’s) ties to EI (Education International). EI is a heavily tied group to the UN (United Nations), as well as the largest global teachers union.
March 2016: global overreach into home education

the-capitol-view-return-to-sender-snqyhq-clipart

“Global rhetoric has preached for years that education is a right and therefore MUST be given. The only problem with this logic is what is mandated (or in this case a ‘must’) is also controlled.” (source)

Here’s a “New” One:

Warriors, unlike the groups to follow, this particular ‘new’ group was one I was able to tie to the Texas Bush family (as in two former presidents). Now, we’ve known for quite some time Jeb Bush (former Governor of Florida and currently leading FEE {Foundation for Excellence in Education}) has sold our nation out to the CCSS Machine (Common Core State Standards Machine), but we’d be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge his Dad’s  (President George Bush (1)) selling Americans out to the NWO (New World Order), which has increased the amount of global overreach in education!

His speech from 1991, second paragraph
His video clip from 1991, promising a ‘new world order’

You might be wondering how the NWO fits into American education. Take a look at the former leader of the UN, Robert Muller.

mullercore2
A former UN leader’s words from years ago.

IS it any wonder Jeb is supportive of globally led education? However, Jeb’s not the lone Bush in the CCSS Machine. I found the NAFSA: Association of International Educators (NAFSA is short for National Association of Foreign Student Advisers)

Updates From Those Other Global-to-American Education Groups:

In no particular order, here are the updates I could find on globally led groups overreaching into American classrooms.

IREX’s TGC (Teachers Global Classrooms):
Worth over $80 million dollars, this global teachers group works in over 100 countries. Founded in 1958 as a supportive group to uphold an education co-operation between President Eisenhower (who ‘gave’ America ESEA and HEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act; Higher Education Act, respectively) and Premier Khrushchev. IREX is short for International Research & Exchanges Board. CCSS Machine member organization, Ford Foundation was among the chief funding streams and supporters of IREX. (*Note: Ford Foundation is huge in supporting the UN-led STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) as well as the CCSS’s arm, CTE (Career Tech Education). Ford Foundation has also back the American Apprenticeship Programs created by President Obama. The AAPs are CTE/STEM/CCSS aligned.) To learn more about the IREX history, read it here. To see how connected to the UN, IREX is, read the proof here.

So how ‘global’ is IREX’s TGC? Look below:

IREXgoals
How tied to America is IREX? The U.S. Dept. of State in only ONE of the US groups involved. (*Note: you’ll find the U.S. Dept. of State and other American groups in IREX’s history.) How involved in the CCSS Machine is the U.S. Dept. of State? Very much so! (*Note: look for the paragraph header “Enter the State” in the above link.) You’ll also need to look at the IREX tie to Fulbright Scholars/Teachers for more CCSS Machine ties.

CIES (Comparative and International Education Society):
This global group is a collection of scholars who focus on “schools, students, teachers and administrators, and on issues spanning early childhood and basic education to secondary and higher education, as well as non-formal education and life-long learning.”

ciesclip

This Society recently wrapped up its 2018 international conference where north and south met. (North as in USA, South as in Mexico). The topic “Re-Mapping Education”. Helping CIES was Columbia University (USA). A conference message from the 2017 CIES President was also given. The former President? A professor from Loyola University Chicago. CIES’s executive director comes from Florida International University.
Among the sponsors? Teach for All and USAID (US Agency for International Development; look for the paragraph header “USAID’s In It, Too”), big CCSS Machine member organizations. (*Note: you’ll find all this type of information in the embedded program link above.)

To access the Universal Basic Education 2011 pdf, go here.

common core crush
Nothing beats a trained mind, right?

GAML (Global Alliance to Monitor Learning):
This Alliance is completely dedicated to adhering to AND bringing to fruition the SDG (Sustainable Development Goal) #4: Global Education for All. How? It’s an arm of the UN, itself! Their latest information dates to late 2017. Access all the alignment here. If you’d like to see the latest information on how well global education (via assessments) is progressing, you’ll want to see and read the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) document using ‘social moderation’ and assessments. (*Note: from what I was able to glean, ‘social moderation’ is tied to competency and/or proficiency.)

GAMLuisreport

If you’d like to see the UIS’s planned use for ‘student data rape’ information, read this.

EI (Education International):
Warriors
, this is the organization I told you about which the NEA (National Education Association) and the AFT (American Federation for Teachers) have joined to support the global shift in education from real academics to workforce training.

EI2018

To access the source for the screen shot above, go here.
(*Note: Both Unions were congratulated by Sen. Lamar Alexander as being key ‘players’ in getting ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act, passed into law. ESSA is full of workforce training mandates/assessments in proficiency and CBE.)

Global Education Symposium (GES):
Warriors
, just take a look at the obviousness of UN’s STEM presence:

GESSTEM

(Source)

Among the GES Global Partners you’ll find mental health groups, teacher development, and, more. Find out more, please! Among the US Universities which will be represented are FSU (Florida State University)and Brigham Young University (BYU).
You’ll also find Teach for All’s participation.

Closing:

Okay, my followers and fellow Warriors, there you have it. The march toward globally united education is narrowing its circle around us. How much more will we take as Americans before we strike back and remove ourselves, especially our children from this assimilation to global competency when Americans could be so MUCH more?!

Please note, these groups are NOT the only globally aligned ones we should be watching. Just as we should note that our current Trump led Administration is not aiding us in stopping this tidal wave of educational doom.

Within Our Shores?

Author’s note: original feature picture is courtesy of ClipGround.com

To My Anti Fed Ed Warriors, how many times have we been able to trace all the modern education reform back to entities NOT within our US shores? Each and every day, as time passes, we see bolder and bolder moves by our leaders (from federal to state levels) become more globally aligned than American-minded.

Oh sure; these leaders swear allegiance to our US Flag every day; they took oaths upon entering offices to uphold the Constitution: to protect American citizens.

If you’ve followed my blog for a long time, you’ve read how incensed I have become over the more-than-visible actions of UN-led motives, agendas, and ideals these VERY same leaders are supporting.

Warriors, WHAT are OUR leaders doing to us? Why are WE not enraged? We must ask ourselves: why are we being passive about this?!

We elected  these leaders (unless appointed) to represent us..not the world! Certainly not the US as filtered by the UN’s mandates.

 

Sitting On The Hill:

Warriors, sitting in Congress as I write (and you read) this, is a bill from OUR leaders in the name of ‘education’. Now, in my mind, I have this question running through my thoughts:

What in the name of ‘education’ is Congress setting our schools up for?!

iceburg

This globally encompassing Congressional bill is S 1171 and is titled “Keeping Girls in School Act”.
Sponsoring this? Sen. Sheehan from NH.
It was introduced back in May 2017 and is in the Committee for Foreign Affairs at the moment.
(*Note: one of the UN-inspired tactics in education is ‘lifelong learning’. So, with a title like this bill, does it literally mean our females will ALWAYS be in some type of school?)

****Let me pause here, Warriors.
As you know, on my blog and from other researcher/writers, we’ve been able to tie the CCSS Machine to the UN, the U.S. State Dept., the Office of Reform and Government Oversight, the U.S. Treasury, the U.S. Dept. of Ed’s International Education Office, and other departments which interact with other nations.

In Feb. 2017, I wrote about the House’s Resolution to adhere and uplift UNESCO’s “International Mother Language” Day.
****

From S 1171’s pages, look below, Warriors:

keepgirls
Warriors, what obvious questions do you have after seeing this? I know what mine are.

S 1171 has SO much overreach, it’s truly egregiously criminal.
1) Creates even more discrimination in education; not lessening it.

2) Creates even more P3 (public private partnerships) activity for economic gain.

3) Uses a portion of the human population to justify all of #1 and 2.

4) Shows the nation that it’s more important to honor global agreements and partnerships than correcting American education problems which address 100% of the  citizens.

5) Ignores the vast amount of research by Americans FOR Americans proving how we are under-serving young men.

6) Is clearly using the UN/UNESCO SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) #5 and any related to #5. (SDG #5 is “Achieve Gender Equality and Empower all women and girls”)

7) If you couldn’t read the three overreaches in the screen shot:
a) Expands the U.S. federal government’s power in education ( a $35 million dollar annual fund).
b) Puts the U.S. State Dept. at the head position for education’s innovation.
c) Relies on UNESCO studies and reports, not American studies and research.

8) Cites the U.S. State Dept’s “Global Strategy to Empower Adolescence Girls”

Q) How do STEM And STEAM connect to S 1171?
A) One of the biggest programs begun, by the Obamas, “Let Girls Learn” is rooted in STEM/STEAM. (see below)
A) The SDG Tool Kit  (education-for-sd-tool-kit-fully-highlighted-1 )
created by a University of TN professor clearly stated that to make the Goals successful, the female population had to be empowered in the name of education and economic gain.

letgirl

Warriors, this isn’t really about ’empowerment’, it’s more like exploitation. (Because after all, if we get girls out of the house and into the workplace, more money is made for everyone.)

*******************************************************
Warriors, there are a few important things S 1171 would achieve (for example: placing female genital mutilation under a ‘barrier status’); however, what is so concerning for all of us should be: that one more time, a ton of BAD legislation surrounds a minority of GOOD legislation.
Why have our leaders so ignored American problems and solutions?! Why have our leaders divorced their hearts and ears when listening to the citizens they represent?!

Closing:

Warriors, let me state for the record that I am not ‘anti-people’. I AM ‘anti big government’.
 Men AND women are both essential to our lives.

I’m also old enough to have lived through the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment) upheaval. I’ve worked in jobs side by side with male peers and seen them earn more. I UNDERSTAND how important some of the issues surrounding girls education are.

But, as a Mom to both sexes, I cannot see how one gender is more worthy (or exploitable) than the other.

It appears Congress isn’t thinking like parents in S 1171.

We have ENOUGH angst in our nation NOW. S 1171 has the potential to add fuel to this angst. How?

When you exalt one gender, the other gender is automatically seen as ‘less than’. Does Congress really want to further this type of treatment to Americans?

Here’s another fact, with all the citizens who are not associating  with the 2 genders, where will those students land with a bill like S 1171?

No government, especially ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave’ should be tipping the scales when it comes to male/female education.

Our government isn’t even supposed to ‘BE’ in education AT ALL!
For argument’s sake, pretend the US Congress DID have a place in education, shouldn’t it be 100% American? Shouldn’t education be for girls AND boys? Wouldn’t THAT be true equality?

US fed statute

Warriors, I truly fail to see where the globalism; the use of P3s (especially with Gates Foundation money), and more discrimination, how Congress thinks S 1171 will help American students be the best they are meant to be.

I do see S 1171 furthering the road to ruin for our nation at the expense of our children.
Warriors, I hope you see this distinction, too.

From our Eastern shores to our Western shores in the US, along with our territories: We MUST stand up and protect our children.

 

The Global Game

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we well know the ‘fed ed’ wouldn’t exist as it does right now, if it weren’t for the global education agenda. Just last week, while writing for the Patriot Institute, I came across the World Education, Inc. website.

worlded

Warriors, the list of groups funding this corporation is a massive one. So many of the CCSS Machine members. We’ll look closer at the World Education, Inc. in a bit. First, let’s use a game show perspective.

It’s not enough that many of these members have ganged up on America, no, it’s like the CCSS Machine is playing us for all it can. Like a sick and twisted game show. Instead of American education being treated like a winner with lots of wonderful prizes, education has been reduced to a wheel of disaster.

Why would I use a wheel? Look below:

essawheel

Warriors, this type of wheel includes everyone involved in education, not just students.
Below, is one wheel for teachers only:

fetters

Here’s another depiction of the disasters in education, thanks to ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). As you can see, no education choice will be a winner in escaping the overreaches.

USAESSACogs

Do you see Warriors? A wheel represents no beginning and no end. It goes around and around.

Think about some of the other images you’ve seen connecting the CCSS Machine to education. Chunks, clusters, pipelines, and, straight arrows.

World Education, Inc.:

Warriors, in the first screen shot, you may notice the ‘since 1951’ phrase. From their website, this excerpt, “Founded in 1951 to meet the needs of the educationally disadvantaged, World Education has worked in over 50 countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, as well as in the United States. Working in concert with private, public, and nongovernmental organizations, World Education initiatives support effective local management and promote partnerships between local organizations.”

Here’s a YouTube video about the corporation. Below is a screen shot from the 2016 Annual Report:

What else is in the Annual Report? Teacher Professional Development in the US; funding from CCSS Machine members (The U.S. Dept. of Ed, The U.S. Dept. of Labor, UNICEF, the UN Foundation, and the AIR, American Institutes for Research); and the Board members with their organization’s name. CCSS Machine members Harvard University and MIT are among those represented.

From the World Education, Inc.’s archives, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s ‘contributions’:

Warriors, in a week or so, the World Education, Inc. is having a Conference for workforce based education. One of the key note speakers? A 2009 Obama nominee for the U.S. Dept. of Education as the Under Secretary. She now leads the College Promise Program. Dr. Martha Kanter. Her bio can be found here. When I first wrote about the College Promise Campaign, the same logo you see below was used in a “Heads Up” Project. The overall goal for the College Promise: free community college for all.

The World Education, Inc. has a monthly newsletter called the “Change Agent”. The current issue is all about Career Pathways. I’ve written several articles about the Career Pathwaysworldedchangeagent

The World Education, Inc. is trying so hard to sell its work as ‘expert’. When you take into consideration all the ties to the CCSS Machine, it’s not expertise they have, it’s alignment!

Closing:

Warriors, please know that when I share things like this, I am not blaming those involved in education who are fighting by our sides. I AM blaming the CCSS Machine for its continued game of ruining America’s education system. I AM speaking up and highlighting what the CCSS Machine is doing so we can be as informed as possible.
We cannot fight a war if we do not know all the opponents.

I’d personally like to see education become a winning ticket for everyone! Personally, I’d love to see the CCSS Machine destroyed.
