Got Skills?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my last article I shared with you the Senate Resolution which has set aside September 2019 as “Workforce Development Month”. If you’re not sure why or how this connects to your students, I am sharing it, here.

Our government has bought into the belief that a skill based worker is more valuable than a free thinking citizen. Warriors, it’s not simply at the federal level either. Recently, I attended a city meeting to voice concerns over another issue. To my surprise, a county leader from the Chamber of Commerce got up, at the mayor’s request and starting sharing data figures on how well the advertising of our area has been in the past month. During this presentation, it was stated that ‘workforce education is the wave of the future.’ Why wasn’t I horrified? Well, the Chamber of Commerce at the county level is tied to the Chamber at a State level. That State level is, and has been, paid to promote this mindset from the National level Chamber of Commerce. 1511175_703966932968744_1083625628_n
Warriors, back in 2015, I shared with you how this chain of workforce (indentured servitude) got started. I also shared that NC’s Chamber was delighted to have a ‘talent supply pipeline’ for workforce education. Isn’t that a tremendous way to refer to humans?

Common Core’s famous for stating it can have our students ‘college ready’, now it claims ‘career ready’, too.

Earlier this year, I exposed how much ‘progress’ has been made in America to continue the shifting of academic education to the global workforce mantra. The CCSS Machine has spun it in one word “Competent”. If you think our education needs to be more European, you’re in luck. America’s education system is already European. So much so, we lack very little to seeing history repeat itself via oppression of the citizens at the mercy of the government. If you doubt this can happen, scroll back up and look at the picture. It’s from the past, not a made up story.

So, Where Did Work And Education First “Meet”?

Warriors, here in the US, I traced it back to the 1950s. Since then, workforce based education was called ‘vocational education’. Now before you accuse me of being ‘anti job’, consider this, it’s the CCSS Machine which has ruined not only academic education, but vocational education as well! As I’ve shared before, ‘vocational education’ was rebranded
“CTE, Career Technical Education”. Under CTE, you get ‘adult Common Core’. Under CTE you also get the direction connection to the UN’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) which is 100% workforce education.

voctegrave

Most  think Common Core (or its rebrand, “College and Career Ready”) END at 12th grade.

Hardly. The UN (United Nations), the ILO (International Labor Organization), and scores of other related groups meant ‘lifelong learning’ to be an endless track of some form of training. It’s where ‘cradle to grave’ came from, too. 

A key member of the ILO? The U.S. Dept.of Labor. Below, you can see that the workforce needed is health and technology. Both these fields are in CTE and STEM.

g2019

If you’ve not seen theAdult Common Core Standards, I found them back in 2014. Most folks, if they believe the truth that Common Core goes well beyond 12th grade, may not know that these ‘standards’ don’t add on to where 12th grade left off. No, these ‘standards’ begin on a 2nd grade level. Why? The reasoning (then) was that it would be impossible to have adult education be at an adult level, when not every adult finished their education up to 12th grade. Of the ‘standards’ which go beyond 2nd grade, they end somewhere before the end of 12th grade.

adultedstand
Warriors, the reality in 2019, is that ‘grades’ and ‘grade levels’ are disappearing. What’s replacing them? How will we know that Johnny and Suzy are ready to graduate? Competency and Proficiency in mastering skills. This is part of the global education/workforce system.

Warriors, don’t think the support for workforce education is simply a one political party pony. Nothing could be more false. BOTH major political parties, and all the other minor parties, have embraced the global shift in education. This press release from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce details how the Trump created National Workforce Council backs up the Obama era WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) and ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) shift away from academics to workforce.

danaasa

From the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s website, you can see how they feel about workforce education. In fact, if we all want to go to D.C. in October, we can hear workforce education experts discuss the ‘future of talent’ and the ‘future of work’. So, will we see that skill based education will be rebranded ‘talent based education’?

chamberwork

Are there other US groups chomping at the bit for workforce education? Plenty. This group has ties to another former President (Bush). You can find that tie in the article above highlighted by ‘plenty’.

Closing:

Warriors, in the first article of this series, I showed you the 116th Senatorial nod to devoting an entire month to workforce development. In this article, I hope you’ve seen a few of the past strings which are now chaining us to a workforce future. In my next article, I’ll share the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s latest on uniting education to skills. Or, should I use the new educratic term ‘talents’?

“The HC Police”

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

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

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


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

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

S 406 also embeds 2 previous laws.

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

hcpolice
(Source)

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

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

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

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

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

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

cyberwork

(Source)

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

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

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

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

UNdatatrack

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

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

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

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

A Blast From Our Past:

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

1948

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

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

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

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

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

A Crystal Ball Future?

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

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

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

aied
(Original source, emphasis is mine)

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

ed2024

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


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

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

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

The Human Capital “Forecast”:

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

2009humancapital

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

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

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

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

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

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

lifelong

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

buyplan

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

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

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

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

Closing:

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

 

For What It’s Worth

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, for today’s article, I’ve got odds and ends to share. Each ‘odd and end’ is somehow connected to the CCSS Machine.

Think of it as you are cleaning out your closet. You know you’ve had the items for awhile. You know you’ve meant to pay attention to them before now.  I must confess, the last time I let items pile up in the closet was July 2018.

Let the ‘cleaning’ begin!

washing_machine_5
Odds/Ends #1:

Proposed IRS changes will mean those education vouchers (or Education Savings Accounts) will mean more interference AND CCSS Machine alignment by  P3s (public private partnerships). How this ties to the current ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandates? More P3s in education; creating money trails which follow children and set up data raping files. If you missed how or why Education Savings Accounts are actually a toxic move, read my archived research.

The ‘starch in our underwear’ for this Odds/Ends is that the vouchers/education savings accounts are a trap. They promise ‘school choice’ which ESSA cannot deliver upon! Why? ESSA mandated that all education be the same in content: post-secondary readiness.

Also, think about it Warriors, if it is to be truly YOUR choice of where you money goes, why do you need (or want) the government’s strings? You do NOT need their permission to make a choice when it comes to your children.

Warriors
, you actually can weigh in on this. All public comments must be submitted to the federal government by October 11, 2018. The public hearing for the IRS changes will take place November 5, 2018.
(*Note: even some groups which are part of the CCSS Machine are protesting these changes.)

ballofyarn
Odds/Ends #2:

Borderless Teaching Academy is a small on-line community geared for homeschoolers. Especially those in K-2nd grade. I saw a Facebook ad for them one day last week. While I had my suspicions, I knew looking a bit closer at the new ‘school’ would be in order.

bordless

Warriors, I’m sure you can spot the ‘stain’ of the CCSS Machine right away! Now what’s a bit disappointing for me, is the ad on Facebook simply said the ‘school’ was a community of homeschooling parents.
Sadly, as I looked around the website, I saw lesson plans for sale. In my mind, that’s not so much a community, as it is consumerism.
If you look at the founder for Borderless, you’ll see lots of traditional school class time and instruction.

When you click on the block where you see the CCSS logo, you’ll be taken to a page for Kindergarten lessons. Be sure to look, though. Read how this teacher wants you to teach Kindergarten.
Lessons are for sale, sight unseen. (*Note: while the page says for Kindergarten, the web address simply says ‘skills’.)

bordercore

Warriors, if you missed my look at how ESSA is harming our earliest learners, please go back and read it. Then, compare those leads to what you are seeing in 2018. If you believe homeschools are safe from ESSA, please refer to this.

Odds/Ends #3:

EdReports.Org, this was another lead to look further into. According to the information in the advertisement, all you need to help improve K-12 education, is passion and access to ‘high quality instructional materials’. Your ‘job’? Content reviewers for ELA (English Language Arts). Sounds kind of loaded, doesn’t it?!

Warriors, according to their 2017 Organizational Report, they are a non-profit with free resources for schools, districts, and are designed for education by educators.

edreport2018

That said, the measuring for standards based education is STILL there. The CCSS Machine is still visible, too. How? In the EdReports.org Mission Statement you’ll ‘rigorous’ and ‘college career readiness standards’. You’ll also see the claim that the CCSS  aligned resources aren’t easy to spot, so these experts can help point you to them.

Warriors, to be honest not a lot of changes to EdReport.org have happened since I first exposed them in 2015. Their tie to the CCSS Machine (besides what is already showing?): The Annenberg Foundation.

Odds/Ends #4:

GSG Impact Summit 2018 was something I was sent on Twitter. The image was one which smacks of the CCSS Machine’s agenda not only for education, but globalism.

gsgimpact

So, what ‘tipping point’?According to the description for this Summit, these global investors want force such changes in our world that by 2020, it’s all about to tip their way. Read their agenda here. So why should we as education Warriors, be concerned with this type of investment meeting? Social impact in today’s world means social justice. Social justice is a UN led activity and is laced throughout every Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs). These Goals are embedded in American education. Impact investing involves P3s (public private partnerships). Impact investing brings bitcoins and blockchains (massive data raping systems).

Is education involved? You bet. Are there CCSS Machine member groups involved? Bingo! Among partners (some will be speaking) are the Ford Foundation, the Dell Foundation, USAID (a US government entity), the United Nations (UN’s) Social Impact Fund, and more. The entire list is here.

As far as other speakers who are HUGE in not only undermining education, but our nation? The Rockefeller Foundation, former Vice President Al Gore, Soros Economic Fund, The Brookings Institute, Harvard University, Merrill Lynch, MacArthur Foundation, and Prudential Finance. The complete list of speakers can be found here.
(*Note:My fellow Warrior, Alison Hawver McDowell has an archived article on one of the speakers, Sir Ronald Cohen. You’ll definitely want to read how his impact investing is sizing up America.)

gsged

If you missed my recent in-depth look at the American involvement is Middle Eastern testing, find that here.

Odds/Ends #5:

VIP Kid
Warriors
, this ‘too good to be true’ job is exactly that. Based in China, hiring Americans and based on the CCSS Machine education. If you look closely at the screen shot below, look at the perks: flexible hours/part-time and the big bucks you could make. According to the website, $14-22 per hour is possible. That’s tempting to many Americans. I’ve even had college students attempt to sign up, until they realized they’d be teaching CCSS English. No amount of money was worth that to them.

vipkidad

In this teacher video, listen to how much is revealed, as far as the ‘behind the scene’ items.

Warriors, teachers are called ‘affiliates’ and you can earn almost $200.00 per person the more affiliates you get to sign up.  (*Note: find that on the ‘affiliates’ page from the website embedded above the screen shot.)

Look below at this screen shot. See the CCSS Machine at work?

vipkidcurric

Warriors, did you know that the CCSS Machine member group Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) is the curriculum partner for VIPKids?

vipkidhmh

To learn more about the proficiency based English which prepares students for ‘lifelong learning’, visit their page.

Odds/Ends #6:

Purdue University Global has recently begun advertising on the radio, on TV, and elsewhere. While I don’t have the script memorized it’s the standard ‘learn anywhere, anytime’ kind of hype. You’ll also hear something about faster degrees and lower costs.

Warriors, Purdue University is no stranger to the CCSS Machine. Back in May 2018, I showed you how the University was partnering with IN high schools to expressly pump up the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) portions of the UN’s global grasp on education.  In 2016, I showed you Purdue’s work in creating technology which has become our student’s nannies.

So, knowing all this, it’s no surprise that Purdue is offering ‘global university’. But, what IS a ‘global university’?  Well, first off, it’s accredited by the (HLC)  Higher Learning Commission. Second, all the courses are on-line and there are 180 to choose from.
(*Note: If you’ve been seeing or hearing a lot of Western Governor’s University ads, as I know in NC, they now have a ‘branch’, WGU is also tied to the HLC. The difference between Purdue and Western’s ads is Western only offers a few tracks for faster degrees. WGU was also featured in the embedded article above.)

globalpurdue

While Purdue University Global tells you there are corporate partners in education (website), they are not stating which corporations are involved. You have to request that information. However, I did find that back in 2014, Purdue was recognized for University Industry Partnerships. Purdue is also globally known for STEM. If you’d like to learn about the Purdue University’s Corporate and Global Office, visit here. (*Note: the Ford Motor Company is a corporate partner. Ford is HUGE in the CCSS Machine.)

 

ccappre
The companies here love CTE (Career Tech Education) and Career Pathways. They also are unabashedly supportive of CCSS and STEM.

Closing:

Well, Warriors, there you have it. The top Odds and Ends from my ‘closet’. I do have a few more items, but those will need to wait until I can dig a bit deeper. We’re finally in October 2018. May we stand firm and strong in our War Vs the Educratic Takeover.
****************************************

On a totally unrelated note, I hope you have heard by now that one of our fiercest Anti Common Core Warriors, Angela D. Weinzinger(California) has passed away. Her spirit and dedication to our children across the nation was always strong. Her fight against the CCSS Machine spurred many people on. Personally, Angela and I didn’t always agree, but I valued our differences. It made us better Warriors. If you would like to help contribute to the family Angela leaves behind, please visit the GoFundMe page set up for her.

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)

lbush

To access the NAFSA’s full biography for Mrs. Bush, go here.
If you wish to see the 2016-18 NAFSA strategy for globally aligned education in America, find the Plan here. If you’d like to learn about how NAFSA has broken American down into regions with on-going global education, be sure to check out this page.

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.”

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.)

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.)

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.

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.
