Beware, The “Change”

Anti  Fed Ed Warriors, have many times have we heard that  ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) will REDUCE testing?! How many times will it take (via research) to prove this is a LIE?! Recently, the State of Utah was awoken to the fact that ‘opting out of the high stakes’ testing cannot happen. Fellow anti Fed Ed Warrior, Autumn Cook gives you the full blow-by-blow account.

I truly hope Utah will step up and sue the U.S. Dept. of Education, as well as all the involved in violating our student’s privacy rights.

Surprised? We shouldn’t be. When ESSA was first being combed over (before it became law), the mandate for a strict 95% testing rate, was largely scoffed at and dismissed. Despite warnings and proof of this, millions have been banking on the lies about ESSA. Even in 2018, we are seeing ‘opt-out guides’.

Presto, Chango?!:

Warriors
, ESSA is clear: opting out will not be possible. Testing, not only will remain, BUT must INCREASE! How? Those daily assessments via computer based learning!

The ties to the student/teacher data rape will INCREASE (did you know ESSA’s mandates include that ALL current assessments/tests not only must communicate well with the past 3 years of data, BUT, they also must either match OR be similar to what assessments/tests your neighboring States use!

(Below, is a screen shot from 2015 about the massive amounts of teacher data rape. ESSA will ‘harvest’ even more and hold schools ‘hostage’!)

I’ve been contacted by a few parents who are discovering that because of ESSA’s language and the mandates, those tests their children WERE able to opt-out of, are now being held against them. How? By not taking ‘x’ number of tests, the holes in the SLDS (Student Longitudinal Data System) cannot be filled with anything else. Too many holes in the data means no graduation!

We have to STOP believing the CCSS Machine, Warriors! Take the time to access my entire set of ESSA/assessment articles. In these you’ll see just how heavy handed the federal government will be when it comes to ALL school choices (even homeschooling) and their testing. (*Note: this plays right into the Gates plan that all ‘assessments will drive the curriculum’.)

I do not support the over assessing of students and their teachers via the Common Core/College and Career Readiness aligned tests; the Career Path assessments; or the data mining included. 

Back in 2016, I showed you the ways in which ‘education technology’ was ramping up for students, teachers, and entire communities. Digital Promise is another way, too.

Not Just Utah:

While the article from Utah which Autumn wrote exposes quite a bit, NC’s State Superintendent of Education, Mark Johnson has been ‘busy’ producing testing ‘changes’ for students. (Here’s the link, but be sure to read the line where it states the laptops can do more than monitor kids.)

While this sounds great and appears to back up the NC Teacher Survey (where teachers do express they know the students are tested too much), we need to look VERY  CLOSELY at the ‘changes’. Why? They are smoke and mirror changes! To learn more about the MClass/Amplify activities in NC (and where to look in your State), go here.

“Innovation” Is A CCSS Machine Buzzword:

Warriors, we’ve seen ESSA embed ‘innovation’ in its mandates. Research has proven ‘innovation’ in education is not all sunshine and roses.

“Innovation” means technology increases. The increases mean infrastructure changes to beef up internet access. Innovation means textbooks disappear and constant data tracking happens. Innovation has to be in place for the data to be collected and sold.

“Innovation” also uses another CCSS Machine fallacy filled phrase: “personalized learning” or PL. PL is a huge data raper.

Look what student/teacher student group Johnson’s ‘reduction’ targets: the littlest learners! Warriors, NC is NOT alone in this alignment/assault of our children!! Look back at Utah’s case, the student data rape will continue via the not being able to opt out.

Remember, Warriors, the biggest smoke and mirror move across America, thanks to ESSA is the amount of end of grade or course testing MAY decrease, BUT the daily ASSESSMENTS and TRACKING increase!

Innovation forces a managed system for economics. Sure, one of the by-products of innovation CAN be ‘learning’, but education is NOT the reason ‘innovation’ is happening in our school districts. It IS what is being shoved on us. It’s also being sold to us as the only way to prepare students for the 21st Century.

Data not only means economic gain, it means control. Think about it, control the education, you control the schools.

Below, I’ve created a chart to illustrate the distinct likenesses of data rape and its physical equal. It isn’t pretty, but we MUST face the stark truth. (Read more about the federal government’s data rape plans, here.)

physicalvsdata

Closing:

Warriors, the bottom line is this: innovation will not be our education’s true friend. It’s a change, alright, but it’s setting up changes we really MUST beware.

Innovation via technology which data rapes us ALL is popping up everywhere across America. My fellow researcher and whistle-blower, Patrick Wood has shown us how our privacy is assaulted via the Smart Meters. Think how this connects to your school issued technology device used at home. Not only are Johnny and Suzy tracked, but the entire family is. ESSA included THAT, too in its mandates.

FY 2019 will have scads of data raping programs.

Remember, data isn’t simply a way to make big bucks off our private information, it’s control. It’s manipulation and it’s criminal.

Foolish Moves

ASCDfools

Happy April, anti CCSS Warriors! As you can see, a prominent member of the CCSS Machine has foolishly sent me an invitation to join them.

We help encourage each other every time we are blocked from sharing anti CCSS/Fed Ed truth by saying it is a ‘badge of honor’. So, I guess a personalized invitation is ‘a trophy’. Oh, how  I ‘hate’ to break it to ASCD, but this is one trophy I will happily discard!

If you think I am being pithy about this, I am. Consider this my way of celebrating April Fool’s Day. However, I know there is serious business to attend to, so let’s get to it, shall we?

In Case You Missed These Recent Truths:

I will confess, March was a whirlwind month for me, so I wasn’t as on target with sharing the following as I have been in the past, especially with my Twitter followers. So, in the spirit of unity, here are the items from March we really need to know about. An informed and active Warrior is much better to War Against the Core! We cannot let up, too much is at stake.

The Fools Line Up:

1) The NEA (National Educators Assoc.) will begin their “Spring Into ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act)” campaign, April 3, 2016. The goal? To ‘inform’ as many parents and schools about the great things ESSA will do to restore local control. As we know from researching the ESSA, this is a bold lie. NEA will use its power to bully the nation with this lie. To see what other CCSS Machine members are planning to do similar things to America:

Action Step: This weekend, brainstorm for how the REAL truths about ESSA can be shared in your local areas. To read the rest of the article where I highlighted this (near the bottom of the article): https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2016/03/31/quick-kill-the-education-romance/
(*Note: After you brainstorm how to combat the lies with the truth for next week, go back and access the VITAL information the rest of article reveals! Post secondary education will need our anti CCSS Warrior truths as well!)

2) CBE (Competency Based Education) will be a requirement for teachers, thanks to ESSA.
Here are the biggest and latest moves being plotted by a number of CCSS fools.
https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2016/03/24/technically-speaking/

3) Other School Leaders will be aligned to the ESSA, as well as being put into positions to ‘heavily influence’ others under their authority and throughout the local communities. One of their weapons? Title One funding! (Title One is just one of the federally funded education Titles which will be re-purposed.) Read the plots being laid out: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2016/03/28/principled-leadership-in-the-essa-era/

4) If you want to learn how the CCSS Machine is set to make MORE profits off our citizens across America, then you will need to read this eye-opener. All this profit will be made by adhering to the ESSA (most specifically the passages embedded which allow MORE P3s in education (P3s, public private partnerships).

While the private businesses will reap money, the federal government will reap student and teacher data. Educational data is worth at least $21 billion dollars and is used for the express purpose of a ‘birth to Workforce to Professional Development alignment’. An added fact from the ESSA is that $849 million dollars is earmarked for MORE digital access in education, for education, and to create a streamlined education!

More Fools Rush In:

As the clock ticks ever closer to the full implementation of the ESSA, expect more CCSS Machine members to almost trip over themselves to rush out MORE foolish information, plans, products, services, propaganda, subjective webinars/conferences/resources.

This is a huge bonus for those of us warring against this illegally based modern reform set to impact our entire nation. How?! Think in military terms here, you know your enemy; you know their objective; you know they will not give up.
That said, remember this: we are not giving up either! We are more in number than the enemy. We are more invested in this War than they will EVER be! How? We haven’t sold out, compromised, or walked away with our hands in the air. We have TRUTH! We have ‘gumption’ (ie: guts, fortitude)! We have the protective hearts to do WHATEVER it takes to stand up for those in education. We have the patriotism to stand up and do WHATEVER it takes to unite to save our country!

I leave you with the ‘Warriors Theme’. It was especially created for our U.S. Military forces to support their dedication to our nation. While the images show only Armed Forces personnel, listen to the words, the attitude conveyed, and the precision. Apply it to our War. (Note: There are a few colorful words in the song.)
