Hazardous Education

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my last article I left you with the fact we’d look at the UN -led ‘climate change’ in education. As you know, the hype around ‘going green’ has reached hazardous levels of distortion.
**This is my in-depth look/study guide on how America’s leaders have turned their patriotic duties into globalism gurus.**

Warriors, as you know, from my past research, and others, that STEM/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, (the Arts), and, Math) are 100% United Nations’s created tools to distort our entire world. As was brought up during a recent interview about this, if humans mess around with nature too much, bad things ALWAYS happen.

Real science grounded in real truth has been thrown aside. It totally needs to be pointed out that REAL science knows much more than it being taught today.
The quasi-science replacing truth has many ‘chicken littles’ are running around screaming “The Earth is melting, the Earth is melting!”

climatechicken

The ruse has worked so well, especially in education,  that millions now believe the lies spun by ‘going green’. Why would so few devise a way to deceive so many about ‘climate change’? Money and power are 2 of the biggest reasons. I’m sure there are others, but like everything the CCSS Machine touches or is connected to, those are the top 2 reasons.

Within my last two articles, if you look closely enough, you saw the ‘climate change’ was included on purpose.

STEM/STEAM, climate change, going green all have 1 common denominator: SDGs, Sustainable Development Goals.

Does our current Administration support STEM/STEAM? Read for yourselves. If you want to see the UNESCO spin on ‘climate change’ in education, go here. Their statement on STEM can be read here.

***Adding insult to injury is our American government. It, too has sold our souls to the ‘climate change’ fallacy. ***

secstem
The politicians who believe they are scientists are just as bad as when they pretend to be educators.

D.C. has bent over backwards to use our taxpayer money to fund ‘climate change research’. Did you know that over the past 20 years, D.C. has spent $11.6 billion in 2014 (last available figure) on ‘climate change’?

Did you know that the American Re-investment funds (where Race to the Top also came from), spent $26.1 billion on ‘climate change’? (*Note: both figures are from the GAO (Government Accountability Office).

Warriors, below is a screen shot of the governmental chain for ‘climate control’ from the same page as the figures above.

gaoclimate

The GAO also reports that it’s believed that in 2017, $13.2 billion was spread between 19 federal agencies on ‘climate change’. Marketwatch (2016) reported that each year the U.S. government spends $35 billion in all on the ‘climate change’. By 2050, they estimated that figure would be $350 billion.

Warriors, with the increased push from the UN, on forcing ‘climate change’, that figure could quickly exceed $35 billion a year.

From a July 2015 “Climate Budget Tagging” Report, this excerpt, Climate Budget Tagging (CBT) is a budget tool for monitoring and tracking of climate-related expenditures in the national budget system.”

So, if you want to track the US budget for ‘climate change’ or any of the activities associated with it, you know what to look for. (*Note: this document will not feature the US, but it is an important tool to see what defines our budget on this topic.)

Much of the ‘tagging’ can be traced back to the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change).

Warriors, from this link, I was able to find US/UN ‘climate change’ information dating back to the late 1990s.
In this
link, as recent as late 2018. So, regardless of our exit from the Paris Agreement, the federal government is still actively participating with the UN on this topic.

Newer, Greener Pastures:

Warriorshere’s what’s currently up in D.C. for ‘Green Deal’ (which is a combination of ‘Smart Cities and ‘Climate Change’..all traceable to the UN’s SDGs):

116green
Warriors, I encourage you to open the above visual in another window. “Going Green” or “Climate Change” is not upon us due to ONE political party, it’s BOTH.


Other Congressional “Climate Change” Legislation:

Warriors, in all I found a result of 44 ‘climate change’ bills and/or related.
Some had other issues attached to them, so we know, back doors are being used to set us up. Below are the ‘biggest’ ones we should be protesting:

Sister Bills, HR 1689/S 763 establish a “Climate Change Advisory Commission” for America. (Both versions would create federal obligations to fulfill for ‘climate change’.)
Sister Bills,
HR 1243/S 523 claim ‘climate change’ can protect our health care, as such it should be promoted. (Sen. Markey is the sponsor for the Senate version.)
HR 1201
, sets up a National ‘climate change’ security/strategy plan.

While those are bad enough, it’s S 477 I want to draw your attention to:

The Climate Change Education Act (S 477)

s477
What will S 477 do for education?

*Impact education at every age level in formal and non-formal educational settings, activities, and elsewhere.
*Authorizes NOAA to establish this educational programming at the cost of $20 million each year from FY 2020 to FY 2025.
This Bill is based off the “Congressional” researched findings, as follows:

a) overwhelming and undeniable evidence on human induced ‘climate change’.
b) atmospheric carbon can be significantly reduced by renewable energy
c) clear/concise ‘climate change’ information will help remove fear/encourage actions
d) implement measures to reduce human impact
e) create new technology and policies/programs to ensure maximum understanding of items a-d
f) will equip more than 3 million student graduates each year from high school and college armed with attitudes/skills/knowledge about ‘climate change’ which will guide their actions throughout the remainder of their lives
g) because of ‘f’, they can be prepared to make changes politely/support new technology/help create new technology and policy for the coming economic and social changes in America
h) overwhelming evidence exists that the US citizens support this type of teaching
i) a ‘green economy’ will improve social equity by reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities

Warriors, the main conduits for A-I are STEM/STEAM, CTE, Apprenticeships.
You’ll find these in ESSA, HEA, and WIOA (to name the top 3 laws where each are embedded)

If you wonder what the UN/UNICEF stance on‘climate change’ is for children, look here.
This might give us an idea of what NOAA may incorporate, should S 477 become law.

S 477 is currently in the Senate’s Committee for Commerce, Science, and, Transportation.

Smart Cities supposedly will answer ‘climate change’, yeah, right.
Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and, Transportation (majority party) views on the Trump Administration infrastructure plans. Minority views on 5G and digital economies (which ‘green deals’ will support).
Since ‘smart technology’ and 5G are somehow supposed to help us be ‘greener’, you’ll want to look into these Congressional caucuses:

Smart Cities Caucus (where 5G can be found). Currently IN, CA, OR, PA, MD, NY, MO, WY, TX, GA, IL, NM, FL, NJ, and NV are represented.

Within the U.S. Transportation, a new federal level government Council, NETT (Non-traditional and Emerging Transportation Technology Council)

A “Dear Colleague” Letter from the Smart Cities Caucus to draw in more Congress members.

Movers and Shakers for ‘green’ 5G/Smart Cities

Other Caucuses which are connected: Public Works and Infrastructure, Urban, Future Climate, Grid Innovation, Infrastructure, Smart Construction, Climate Solutions, IP (Intellectual property), Urban Regional Studies, Rural, Housing, Transportation, Public Transportation, Open Source, Co-operative business, Cybersecurity, Global investments, Digital trade, Technology accountability, and, AI (Artificial Intelligence). (*Note: Heartland Inst. featured a 2018 pdf on the Climate Solutions Caucus showing the conservatives union with the very liberal roots of ‘climate change’ traceable to Al Gore.)


Current 116th Bills which relate to 5G/Green/Climate:

HR 1453 (in Committee) co-ordinates a unity between the EU (European Union) and the US for global energy security.
HR 267 The Appropriations for U.S. Transportation, HUD, and others. Education is embedded 11 times, mainly using higher education as test facilities for new technology/green or climate efforts. Passed the House and is in the Senate.
HR 21 (Passed House, in Senate) A Consolidated Appropriations Bills, education is embedded 120 times and green infrastructure, 8 times.
HR 1039 (in Committee), streamlines currency and financial reporting information.
HR 1079/S 435 (HR version has passed House, in Senate; Senate Bill has the same name and is similar) This Bill streamlines all kinds of consent forms for Americans.
HR 292 Streamlines rural areas for broadband.
HR 1328 Expands federal government with new office for Internet Connectivity and related business.
HR 762 Streamlines US schools (all levels) for energy efficiency (passed House, in Senate)
S 253 Same name as HR 762, but retrofits schools.
HR 865/ S 266 (The Senate Bill is identical) Rebuilds US public schools, ‘greens’ them up, Section 303.
HR 989/ S 431 PARTNERS Act (very similar Bills; regional specific apprenticeships for industry-demanded trades)

What Does It All Mean?

Warriors, all this means is one thing: all of us are to be molded (or re-skilled) into how to be ‘green people’. If we look at this through education/economy and America, it’s more like “STEM” people, which is exactly what the plan has been since early 2009 or 2010.

Warriors, I know you love America, as do I. I don’t think the political America loves us back one bit. Not when it aligns us to global mumbo-jumbo like ‘climate change’ is our only hope for peace.

Big Wheel Deal

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have you ever had one of those items you knew you needed to address but thought it wouldn’t take too long? Yeah, right. That’s pretty much been my experience in education research. Today’s article is just one of those items.  A mere 4 page document..no worries. Not much can be gleaned from those pages..Boy, was I mistaken! Find out how no matter which way the wheel spins, the schools of America lose.

charliebrown
Everyday is a GREAT day to yank the CCSS ball right out from under the Machine’s feet.

A 2018 global education meeting. The goal? Another global declaration. As if we don’t have enough of those going around. However, look at the picture (below). This isn’t your every day global declaration, this is an EDUCATION declaration for globalization.

This particular Declaration reaffirmed the global takeover of education. But, wait, Lynne, the US pulled out of the UN and UNESCO (United Nations and United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization), so this won’t impact American education at all.

WRONG! American education is still 100% aligned to the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), no matter what small portions of the US government have ‘left’ the UN/UNESCO.

There’s more than enough evidence (here on my blog and other’s researched publications) to prove the US is still a UN member-state.

Brussels, 2018:

Brussels2018(Source)

So what does the 2018 Brussels Declaration for Education state?

1) It reaffirms the call to transforming the world via education.
2) It decries the fact the global community is not on the 100% alignment track to the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), mainly #4: Quality Global Education for All
3) Pulls in the 2015 Incheon Declaration (where the WEF, World Education Forum adopted the ‘education for all by 2030’ agenda)
4) Sets out the Education for All by 2030 Framework for Action
5) The Framework is based off UN’s global regions consultations for SDG #4.
6) “Ensures inclusive and equitable quality education and promotes life-long learning opportunities for all.” (In spite of not being on track)
7) A reaffirmation to protect the UN’s declared ‘right to inclusive education’. This ‘right’ is a fundamental role in education AND training carried out by life-long learning and higher education.
8) Research on #7 is a key driver for Sustainable Development. Especially in climate change global adoption and mitigation (reducing the harm to the Earth).
9) Calls for a stronger collective effort for SDG #4.
10) Use formal and non-formal education to wipe out illiteracy.
11) Institute and strengthen legislation/policy/strategy so that all education and training is inclusive. Devote more funding to this end so that ‘no one is left behind’. (For example, in Congress HR 1453 seeks to align more energy activities between the US and the European Union)
12) Tied to #11, those efforts need to include crises and humanitarian efforts.
13) Commit to include migrants, displaced people, and refugees in the host nation’s education and training system. Recognize their ‘qualifications’ (aka: competencies and skills) and ensure these are in line with national and international education agreements.
14) Commit to gender responsive quality education and training, especially for females.
15) Commit to strengthen global citizenship education, especially for the SDGs. This will promote values (respect for life, dignity, cultural diversity) and will help bring social cohesion for democracy, peace, and social justice. It will also improve accountability in education as a ‘public good’.
16) Commits to an open/flexible and responsive education and training system which will support a broader range of kindergarten, secondary, and, college students (aka: early child to adulthood; ‘cradle to grave’; ‘life-long learning’; birth to death tracking) By doing this, global contributions for sustainability, peaceful, inclusive, and just societies will occur.
17) Engages global ‘decent work for all’, especially for rapidly changing labor markets.
18) Calls for public funding to increase for relevant PD (professional development) and continuous PD.
19) Stronger domestic resources and mobilization of these for international co-operation. Once this is set in place, solidarity and increased improvement of education can occur.

Warriors, that’s not all. If you look at the notes for all these items, you’ll find that politics and legislation are to ‘beef up’ host nations for these activities.

You’ll also see that teachers are to be elevated to some ‘god-like’ status.
You are sure to see the economic changes, as well as the social, political, and environmental changes which each host nation will have to bare.
Then, the increase in technology is a ‘given’. Add to that the ‘democratic and sustainable societies and lifestyles’. We’re really talking a total reconfiguration of our nation.

uscaucuslist.jpg

Education costs are to be placed at 4-6% of of host nation’s GDPs (Gross Domestic Products) and use 15-20% of all public funds (aka: taxes).

If you look at the United States GDP for 2018 ($21.trillion) and figure what 4-6% is, that anywhere between $860 billion and $1.29 trillion). The recent FY 2020 Presidential Budget request was $62 billion, just for American education. Fifteen to 20% of ALL US public funds? That’s outrageous!

P3s (Public private partnerships) are to be used to monitor and data track all the activities to ensure the plan is played out as this Declaration decrees.

Lastly, the Brussels Declaration reaffirms that education is a human right AND a public responsibility.

ICYMI: here’s the ‘catchy’ YouTube video about the entire meeting, Dec. 3rd-5th, 2018.

Warriors, was the United States involved in the Brussels 2018 meeting? Yes. In October of 2018, the US and other North American countries, as well as Europe, put together their progress notes and ‘advice’ for meeting SDG #4 by 2030. You can access that information here. The official “Outcome Statement” is a bit more concise. It was used in the Brussels meetings as well.

That information was then forwarded on and used at the Brussels meeting to help create the Declaration.

To access the entire website from the Brussels meeting, go here. (*Note, since signing the 2015 Agenda 2030 Agreement, this is the first time global education for all has been addressed in this fashion.)

While I couldn’t easily identify (in the photos and videos section) any member of the US officials in attendance, some of the groups we are members of (World Bank, UNICEF, OECD) were there. Also, NGOs (Non governmental agencies) were in attendance, so it’s highly likely someone or some people from the US were there.

Closing:

Warriors, why am I bringing up a meeting from 3 months ago? Because one of the resources from that meeting will definitely impact America and its education. The GEM Report for 2019. AKA: Global Education Monitoring Report.

That Report is close to 440 pages. My next article will dive right into what those pages reveal. Trust me, you’ll need a break between this article and THAT one.

Why is it good to go over the GEM Report 2019 again (if you’ve already read it)? With the national immigration issues we are facing in 2019, it is imperative. Remember, the Brussels Declaration has stated legislation and public money will be used for SDG#4.

Also, because so much of this involves displaced people, immigration, and humanitarian efforts, this will be ‘visited’ on ALL educational choices due to the fact it’s being implemented community wide! What will this do to our rights? Our Constitution? Rather than ask me what to do, ask those who are your authorities.

Blurred Lines

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, no doubt the headlines are causing your heads to feel like ‘Holy cow! When will this end?’ I totally understand. While D.C. is ‘rocking’ and Hollywood is ‘knocking’, there IS a lot happening.

However, as we’ve seen before, distractions of these kinds usually play out while the ‘real story’ is muted somewhere in the background.

Warriors, it’s blurring lines. Lines of truth; lines of communication; and, lines of information.

illusion
So, has the ‘real story’ already happened and we don’t know it? It’s possible. It’s also possible the timing isn’t right.

Here’s one ‘story’ I think may be PART of the D.C. reality being buried by the headlines.

benjamin-franklin-quote-trickery-and-treachery-are-the-practices-of

Blurring Education Lines:

Flashback to 2017, Supreme Court’s ruling for Trinity Lutheran Church (Columbia, MO) vs Comer (MO’s Director for the MO Dept. of Natural Resources).

Warriors, the Church had a preschool and a day care center. At that time the Center did carry the Church’s name but was a separate entity. Then, the Center and Church merged. The Center was now on Church property. The Center’s ‘non profit’ status stayed with the Center, even on Church grounds. When the Center wanted to upgrade their playground, they applied for a grant given by the MO Dept. of Natural Resources. The Center was denied because it was not just a Center, but a Church. The Church (and the Center) sued in Federal Court. The Center/Church claimed its freedom of expression (under the First Amendment) had been violated. The Dept. of Nat’l Resources had a strict policy that churches didn’t qualify for the type of grants being offered (based on MO law that no government aid for funding could go to any religious group or church).

If you want to learn HOW it ended up in the U.S. Supreme Court, you can read the 55 page syllabus, here. How did the case end?
“The Court today reaffirms that “denying a generally available benefit solely on account of religious identity imposes a penalty on the free exercise of religion that can be justified,” if at all, “only by a state interest ‘of the highest order.’”

March 2019, DeVos’s Lines:

On March 11, 2019, the U.S. Dept. of Education released this news (added emphasis is mine):

blurred.jpg

(*Notes: a: The 2010 Congressional Concerns will cite religious funding issues on Pages 5 and 6. b) Back in 2015, I exposed CAPE’s ties to the CCSS Machine, so it’s really NOT that surprising Sec. DeVos was speaking to them. Appearances like that help blur lines frequently. c) CAPE did publish a document explaining how ESSA was their ‘friend’. Religious groups will be able to use Title One funds for services, under ESSA.
d) In 2014, the hidden CCSS assessments used in a Catholic private school.)

The Hill’s article on DeVos’s lines at CAPE, share that she will amend, stop, or look over existing religious education funding and eligibility programs. The article also ties into her family’s ties to Hillsdale College (where they support K-12 charters as public-private choices). Higher education will also be lumped into the religious relaxing of lines.

So what’s the REAL Story? By blurring these lines, the federal government will use the ‘school choice’ tax credits and/or ESAs (education savings accounts) to have free access to religious based schools. This will also bring in federal overreach and alignment BY being allowed into the religious schools at ALL levels. It means that whatever freedom your religious school offers will now be compromised!

HOWEVER, the OTHER, untold part of the story is this, by Christian based groups claiming their 1st Amendment rights need to be upheld, so do all those other groups considered to be religions. For example, the Church of  Satan fought for AND won it’s First Amendment rights to be included in education.

This also brings up Muslim faith based groups. What if you don’t want Sharia practices in education? Too bad, under this ‘relaxation’, the door is now open. What about those Post-Modern or Marxist based religions? These too.

So, by relaxing your education stance for one group, means EVERY group considered BY The Dept. of Defense, The IRS, etc., can be lumped in as well. In 2017, the U.S. Dept. of Defense announced that the list of federally recognized religious groups in the US was around 221. (*Note: The IRS, the Dept. of Defense and several other U.S. federal agencies overreach into education due to the CCSS Machine and violations of the U.S. Constitution.)

Topping the list, at least in the Hill article, Humanism. Earth-based worship was also pointed out in the article.

Warriors, this openly blurs the lines so that all the UN’s SDGs (United Nations Sustainable Development Goals) earth-based, humanistic views are more accessible and easily embedded! Warriors, look at what the U.S. State Dept (or Dept of the State) has in place for religious activities:

statereligion
Almost reading like the State Dept’s Plan is straight from the pages of the UN, the National Strategy is another open line for globalism. The underlying story here, is that religion will be watered down and homogenized so that everyone will be ‘at peace’.

So, why would a seemingly ‘righteous line’ carried by Sec. DeVos cause us pause?
DeVos has proven she is a globalism disciple repeatedly. By using education as a bully pulpit to align American education to the UN’s workforce based ‘birth to death’ treadmill of ‘lifelong learning’ is not only egregious or unpatriotic, it’s criminal!!!


Blurred Lines for Title 9:

This 2019 relaxation DeVos is carrying out will not only impact Title One funding, but Title 9. In 2018, Real Clear Education stated that religious exemptions in the funding were all but left out of the headlines.
How will this impact private religious schools? Federal funding. Warriors, if we’re going to see one side of the line protest about separation of church and state, WHY are private religious schools taking federal funds?! To see the latest on the U.S. Dept. of Education’s Title 9 religious information, go here.

governmentcant           How long will it be before we need government permission to worship God?

ESSA/Immigration Blurred Lines in Education:

Long before DeVos uttered her 2019 edict for blurring lines, plenty of intersection was going on between church and state, in education.

In 2017, I gave you an update on CAPE and the blurred lines between State Social Services and churches. In response to that article, came this one where it was pointed out the federal government funnels refugee and immigration funds through churches AND it’s used in educational classes.

After ESSA was passed, I warned you of the passages and mandates that would overreach into religious education.
The mental health overreaches will include faith based groups.
How private education of EVERY type (including homeschools) would be assimilated.

Bring Up This Line With Your Pastors:

Warriors, in 2018, I challenged Pastor and every American who cares about preserving our religious freedoms with some hard hitting questions. Where will they draw the line as shepherds when it comes to their flocks and the overreaches into education? The CCSS Machine has already crossed the line into the church’s territory. The question is what will the American church do to throw the Machine back over that line?

When Agenda Means Dirt

To all you Anti Fed Ed Warriors, out there, did you know that way back in 1893 Emmett Culligan was born? Who was he? The founder of what would become the world’s largest water treatment company. We’ll find out more about Culligan in 2019, later on. But, first…

Water is one of the most basic elements of our lives. Water is connected to dirt or soil. Soil and water grow what we eat, as well as what we feed our animals. Without proper care of water and dirt, we will not survive. Period.

 

turnips_farmers_market

 

So, what do you do with a global agenda which ‘monkeys’ with BOTH? You find it in education, you see it in modernized farming, and, you taste it in modified foods.

In 2016, I showed you how some of this was inserted into a FL  PTA (Parent Teacher Association) project.

ricecontest

Back in Dec. 2018, I showed you not only federal legislation using agenda to redefine farming, but the Utah food standards, which aligned to Common Core. The ‘unseen’ agenda via these lessons (used nation-wide): usurping parental rights!

Warriors, have you noticed the increased amount of foods being grown without soil or grown completely indoors with artificial light? Somehow our students in all agriculture related fields are being swayed that this is more practical and ‘earth friendly’ than actually using nature! The connection from education to agenda? STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math.

National Ag Day/Week

Warriors, March 14th, 2019 has been declared National Agriculture Day. Held annually, the National Ag Week (March 10-16, 2019) is a big deal in D.C. What group is behind National Ag Week? The ACA (Agriculture Council of America). Among the ACA Board Members, FFA (Future Farmers of America) is represented. (*Note: see Related Resources, below.)
If you’d like to see the many groups sponsoring National Ag Week, go here.
ACA is a non-profit group, but I haven’t been successful in tracking down what groups fund it. However, it is tied to ‘agribusiness’.

How else is DC involved in agriculture? USDA (U.S. Dept. of Agriculture) Farm to School grants. By the way, Warriors, the USDA is a huge CCSS/STEM supporting agency. (*Note: I’m embedded all my articles where USDA is tagged. The 2017 “OtherColleague” letter is a huge piece of evidence.)

If you missed it, the President has not only embraced STEM, he is helping promote it, big time. I must point out that our 116th Congress is also promoting STEM with many federal legislative bills.

NSAC, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition:

This national grassroots based group has significant power in DC. According to one of their latest blog entries, the FY 2019 Dept. of Ag budget hasn’t been voted on yet. It’s a ‘minibus’ bill with tons of agenda. I’ve given you a screenshot below of a few of the priorities NSAC is pushing:

Warriors, in Dec. 2018, the President released a statement on all sorts of positive appearing plans for agriculture. Did he really? Look below:

As far as the repealing the Obama Era Waters of the United States, I found this on the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Clarification of federal authority under the Clean Water Act. This ‘clarification’ will redefine the federal footprint on our water. We the People have until April 15, 2019 to leave public comments. I urge you to learn more and comment!

As far as the EPA’s stance on Sustainability, there’s an entire section on ‘Going Green’.

“Socially Responsible”:

Warriors, this website was one of those which popped up on social media. Simply by the picture and words, I knew this was a group to look into.

srap
While I couldn’t find out very much about SRAP, I did discover many colleges and universities, along with private investment groups flock to projects like this to fulfill education and social justice motives.

Messing With Our Water:

Along the lines of social justice and education, I’ve had one Mom from PA contact me about the recent assignment her son had in his high school class on environmental science. While she couldn’t supply pictures to share, she did tell me that 
‘His project was based on water consumption. He had to list everything he drank or ate that needed water. Then he had to create a plan to reduce that water intake. Then, he screamed at me about how much water it takes to feed a cow, so we don’t need to eat meat, we need to eat plants.’ As a side note, Mom did point out that plants, too, need water. Moms and Dads also know that meat and meat by-products are needed for healthy children.
We shouldn’t all be herbivores. We were designed to be omnivores!

footprintgarbage

(Source)

The GRACE Communications Foundation is the group which has the Water Consumption Calculator the PA Student probably took. GRACE is all about increasing public awareness of critical environmental issues. I took the quiz, Warriors.

You should do, just to see some of the questions. I was asked how much I feed my pets, who in my family eats meat, how often we flush a toilet (called ‘letting it mellow’), and so on. Included also were questions like do I recycle? Do I drive a car? How often do I drive? Do I want to learn about ‘virtual water’? Based on my family of 5 and the type of answers you were constricted to give, the results were skewed.

As far as ‘virtual’ water? That’s gasoline and anything used indirectly, like electricity, etc. GRACE is a partner with the Global Alliance for the Future of Food (ie: SDGs in action).

STEM In 4-H:

Warriors, you read above how I’d found the CCSS Machine in 4-H. So now we can add STEM to that list.

4hstem

Google is a big supporter of STEM in 4-H. The main goal for Google? Career Pathways for kids via 4-H. Warriors, Career Pathways are also a part of the nebulous SDGs.
Here you’ll find all kinds of STEM/agriculture activities and resources. There’s even a Coding Day for 4-H which ties to agriculture. It’s called the “National Youth Sciences Day”. This targets 8-14 year old students.

Many of us have fond memories of participating in the a 4-H Club. But STEM has taken over both the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, so why not 4-H? STEM has even ensnared the National PTA.

1) Back before I had my own blog (mid 2014), but, had been researching CCSS/STEM for quite a while, I exposed how FFA (Future Farmers of America), 4-H Clubs, and, other leadership extra-curricular activity groups were being aligned to the CCSS Machine. As we know, extra-curricular activities are available to ALL school choices.

2) As a follow up, here was the one showing Beta Clubs and Honor Societies. In 2019, the CCSS/STEM agenda is even more visible.

3) Farming and agriculture not only impact our food, but the entire American insurance and credit industries.  If you’d like to see the billions of dollars going toward this, read this 2017 Annual Report about Farmer Mac. (Think Sallie Mae for rural America)

4) AFA (Agriculture Future of America) partners include many CCSS and/or UN/STEM aligned public universities, as well as some big businesses.

5) To learn about biomass crops, community food development grants, and biotechnology in agriculture, this 2014 Sustainable Ag Research & Ed Grants document will help you see some connections. Note, the underlying support of private foundations in the USDA branch of government.
