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.

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?

ISO (In Search Of)

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, As we’ve known for a while now, the HEA (Higher Education Act) is up for a re-authorization. Frankly, it’s been up for a total re-authorization since 2008, the last time it was recycled. Since 2008, the HEA has been renewed. Meaning the funding to keep HEA has been updated.

With the updates in funds between then and now, little changes have been made here and there to keep up with the embedded unity between HEA, ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), STEM Act of 2015 (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), and all that connects this ‘unholy quad’ of federal overreach.

US fed statute

Warriors, we’ve also heard several times since the CCSS Machine first started grinding away, that HEA is the last link in the chain to mandate (from the feds, down) workforce based education from cradle to grave. We also know Sen. Lamar Alexander swore as soon as ESSA passed into law (late 2015) that HEA was next on his radar.

The 115th Congressional Session did come very close to passing a new version of the HEA, both versions were stuck in their respective Committees and expired when the 116th Congressional Session was sworn in.

Both the PROSPER Bill (HR 4508 called Promoting Real Opportunity, Success, and Prosperity through Education Reform) and S 615, HIEA (Higher Innovation Education Act) have been laid to rest..so far.

It’s been said that before Sen. Alexander retired HEA would be be passed. He retires in 2020.
                                                (Note the rotten apples below)

appletrophy
How do I know HR 4508 and S 615 have been retired?
According to the unidentified male clerk in
Rep. Virginia Foxx’s office, HR 4508 will not be coming back in that same form. When I asked if Rep. Foxx had plans of re-introducing it (since it was ‘her’ bill in the first place), I got told there was no news on that. If there was, I’d get a letter, as in a ‘snail mail’ letter.

In the Senate, no mention whatsoever of S 615 can be seen from the current Session. So, we’ll have to wait, right? Not so fast, Warriors! (*Note: If you have an leads on re-introductions of these massive bills, please, share them! Thank you)

While I haven’t found current legislation to re-authorize the ENTIRE HEA, I have found several bills which AMEND it.

There are several, and we’re just in the first part of the 116th’s Session.
                   (*Note: of the list below, you can sign up for alerts to any Bill you choose. Go to                       www.congress.gov, type in the Bill Letter(s) and numbers and choose ‘alerts’.)

safe_image

HR 792 (Opportunities for Success) will amend the HEA’s Section 441. That section focuses on federal work study programs as well as complete ‘other purposes’. (*Note: as we’ve learned together, ‘other purposes’ is a phrase DC uses to cover their backsides when hiding things they don’t want us to discover.) Staring at $1.5 billion for FY 2020 (and increasing thereafter), HR 792 expands both the opportunity for ‘work based learning’ as well as the definition of what ‘work based learning’ is. Bottom line: blurs the lines between education and labor for streamlined workforce education.

HR 1153 amends HEA for ELLs (English Language Learners)
**As of this article no Bill text is available. 
The summary states it directs Sec. DeVos to award grants to higher education institutions to teach English.

HR 1161 amends HEA for clearer, more concise federal student loan information.
**As of this article no Bill text is available. The summary does state the nebulous ‘other purposes’ is in this Bill.

HR 625 (PROPEL Act, Professional Pell Education Learning Act) amends HEA (Section 401) to expand who can qualify for Pell Grants for certain trade schools. The ‘certain’ trade schools will be those which either teach skill based trades, flight schools, apprenticeships, and on-the-job training which can be completed in less than 15 weeks, 16 semester hours, 24 quarter hours or 600 clock hours. These schools don’t have to be accredited by a nationally recognized association. Bottom line: do we really want barely qualified pilots or other trades? Why are we fast tracking our students of all ages?

S 416 amends the HEA so that those with special circumstances can qualify federal student aid.
**As of this article no Bill text is available.

HR 640 (Student Simplification Aid Act) amends not only the HEA, but IRS Code as well. This will open up the data collection/sharing even moreso than at current rate, between the IRS and the U.S. Dept. of Education. This type of increase can best be described as ‘student data rape’.
Bottom line: any contractor, sub-contractor, federal agency, cooperative partner has access to not only  student data but family data.

S 468 amends Title II of the HEA (Professional Development) for ‘quality enhancement’.
**As of this article no Bill text is available.

S234/HR 811 (identical sister bills) (Transparency in Student Lending Act) amends the HEA for financial disclosure rates.
Bottom line: with student debt so high will rates continue to increase at the fed’s control?

S 379 amends the IRS Code for 529 Accounts to include new higher education credentialing.
**As of this article there is no Bill text for this.

HR 786 amends the Mineral Leasing Act to use federal funds in K-12 and public higher education.
Bottom line: federal funds sent to States to ‘supplement’ education is unconstitutional.

HR 653 (Expanding Access to the Workforce through Dual Enrollment Act of 2019) This Bill will establish or expand programs for CTE (Career Tech Education) where bridges between secondary and post-secondary schools. Also known as dual enrollment or concurrent enrollment as well as ‘other purposes’.
Bottom line: Each eligible school/institution will receive up to $1 million dollars for aligning academics to workforce based education.

S 532/HR 1229 (identical sister bills)amends the HEA for teacher loan forgiveness in connection with the Armed Forces and ‘other purposes’.
**As of this article no Bill text is available.

HR 662 (REACH Act), Report and Educate About Campus Hazing amends the HEA and provides for ‘other purposes’. This Bill defines what ‘hazing’ is; will involve partnerships between campuses and police enforcement; requires on-campus education.
**Bottom line: What group will be providing the education? What, if any, slant will be included? How much funding will be earmarked?

HR 65 (Enhancing Educational Opportunities for Home School Students Act) amends the IRS Code to expand what expenses 529 Accounts will cover.
**Bottom line: not only will K-12 expenses be included, but dual enrollment and some higher education items. (*Note: a related bill, HR 1084, Section 301, expands 529 accounts.)

S220 (529 Expansion and Modernization Act) this Bill will amend the 1986 IRS Code (as does HR 1084) covering 529 accounts for the costs of apprenticeships, early education, and related items.
**Bottom line: this is one of the first pieces of federal legislation I’ve seen where the cradle to grave system connects to money. Apprenticeships fall under CTE, Career Tech Education and tie to U.S. Labor. Early ed ties to U.S. Education. Another sign of a merger?

HR 778 (Educational Freedom Accounts) this Bill is for the District of Columbia to expand ‘school choice’. Eligible students must be enrolled in public school (including charters, excluding homeschooling).
**Bottom line: this Bill extends the ‘freedom’ of choice all the way to higher education, includes tutoring, and other types of services. Why is a NC Representative sponsoring this?

HR 334 (New Collar Jobs Act) will increase education for cyberspace jobs and ‘other purposes’. Amends the IRS Code of 1986 to increase employer contributions. Amends HEA for student loan repayments. Will definitely tie to STEM funds, jobs, and education.
**Bottom line: creates a CyberCorps scholarship for service program & increases federal cybersecurity contracts. This reeks of glorified ‘indentured servitude’, does it not?

HR 1094 (World Language  Advancement and Readiness Act) will find the U.S. Dept. of Defense, the National Intelligence Agency, and, the U.S. Dept. of Education in partnership. Defense will offer competitive grants to States to increase world languages in K-12th grades. So that in higher education, world readiness isn’t such a hassle. 
**Bottom line: portions of the federal footprint in education will shift to Defense funding. The global readiness is geared for the economy, not education. This Bill should die quickly, but has many co-sponsors (main sponsor is from NC).

HR 399 (PATH Act, Pre-Apprenticeships To Hardhats Act) puts U.S. Labor in charge of developing paths for low-income and rural populations for CTE education, P3s (public private partnerships), and extend from K-12 to veterans.
**Bottom line: portions of the federal footprint in education will shift to Labor funding via competitive grants to States. Will allow for curriculum to shift to employer based needs, not academic prowess.

S 275/HR 898 (Skills Investment Act) (identical sister bills) will amend the IRS Code of 1986 for ‘lifelong learning accounts’. Will codify the change via switching from “Coverdell Education Savings Accounts” to “Coverdell Lifelong Learning” Accounts. Will instantly convert existing ESAs to lifelong learning ones.
**Bottom line: the ‘follow the money’ follows the child for two reasons, a) data rape and b) career tracking. This system is based on the pay-as-you-go and is unconstitutional!

HR 827 (AI Jobs Act) lumps in ‘background summary’ in the long title of this Bill. “AI” is short for ‘Artificial Intelligence’. U.S. Labor will head up the collaborative effort to streamline data rape for workforce needs and then strain it all through education. Will encompass STEM education, workforce, and economy. This Bill will use community colleges as the ‘tool of choice’ for much of the alignment (thus amending the HEA).
**Bottom line: this will train us for those 21st century jobs as well as track us to no end. Seeing how the federal government defines AI is truly spooky and shouldn’t be glossed over.

Despicable Me 2 exclusive DVD clip

Closing:

Okay, Warriors, there you have it, the list of HEA amendments which prove out a few things:
a) Many federal agencies have overreached (and will get to continue that process) into education to bastardize it.
b) Look how few actually have anything to do will ‘real’ education and everything to do with trained minions.
c) The global UN led STEM is woven into our education, funding, jobs, economy, and finally ourselves. Just like it was forecast back in 2010.
d) Do you see the ‘choice’ bastardization via those ESAs (education savings accounts)? If ever anyone needed proof these accounts are 100% bogus, these Bills should do the trick.
e) Our legislators are not hiding the global economy or workforce agenda at all. With the blatant use of ‘lifelong learning’, it gives total credence and support to the OECD’s (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development) rhetoric.

Warriors, the OECD is in cooperation with the UN and the US is in membership of BOTH.

Waving Choice Goodbye

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, you’ve heard me tell you time and time again that ‘school choice’ is a fallacy. The culprit is the CCSS Machine.
The tools used to ruin ‘school choice’ are WIOA, ESSA, HEA, and other top-down federal laws. (WIOA is Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, 2014; ESSA is Every Student Succeeds Act, 2015; and, HEA is the Higher Education Act, 2008 and up for re-authorization very soon).

Warriors, the fact of the matter is ‘school choice’ is really more about “personal choice”.

However, ESSA killed that choice with it’s mandate that ALL education be aligned to the post-secondary readiness standards of WIOA.
essagoal

So, in essence, at least in education; that simple line from the 1965 Dr. Zhivago movie (fiction) has become our reality:

                “All personal choice is dead.”

drz

As we know, much of the CCSS Machine’s design uses education as the ‘change agent’ to alter our lives.
We know the control is meant for cradle to grave and encompasses where you’ll work. That’s why students of all ages are being pumped through the CCSS’s College and Career Readiness or the CCSS’s Career Tech Education or the (United Nation’s) UN’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
It’s to force our students (and eventually the rest of us) into a controlled nanny-state. (Also very present in the fictional account of Dr. Zhivago)

You may wonder why I included the UN in connection to the CCSS Machine. First, Berit Kjos and many others (myself included) have traced the Common Core State Standards back to the UN, so the UN is part of the Machine.
However, STEM is the UN’s special change agent to usher in the Agenda 2030. How?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As part of the A2030 and SDGs, where we live and where we work will be determined for us, largely through education and what career track we’ve been trained for (or re-trained for).
This is pure confinement for us as Americans; not the free people we were Constitutionally guaranteed, Warriors.

Contrast it to any movie like Dr. Zhivago and you’ll get a fair idea of how awful this direction is for Americans.

Since ESSA mandated WIOA in PreK through 12 grades (as well as tie it to the HEA for colleges and trade schools), how is the government helping all this come to fruition?

What Are Waivers? How Do They Kill Choice?

If you’re not sure what a waiver is in the realm of federal education, it was supposed to be a tool given to States and school districts to offer flexibility in how federal funds could be used to offer ‘quality’ education.
Sounds great, right? Especially with the CCSS Machine hype and lies about States being able to get their right to control education BACK when ESSA was made into law.

ESSA, by embedding WIOA, embedded funds for workforce. Likewise the WIOA waivers will embed education, not for academics, but competency based education (CBE).
CBE is CCSS, too.

CBE is woven into ESSA, WIOA, and the HEA…on purpose. It’s the shift from reading, writing, and arithmetic to poorly skilled labor force.

Warriors, think back to those Race to the Top Education Waivers or the ESSA Flexibility Waivers? Have you really seen any improvement in education? Have you really seen any removal of federal control or a distinct freedom your district or State didn’t have before?

There’s been none, because the Waivers are a deceptive move for MORE federal control to implant MORE shifting of education away from what we’ve known to what the global workforce needs: laborers. Our U.S. Constitution puts it another way, ‘indentured servants’. (Which by the way was also prohibited later on in the Constitution!)

WIOA Waivers Kill Personal Choice, Too:

wioawaive
(Source)

According to the U.S. Dept. of Labor, States were given a sense of freedom in how their Waivers were used, as long as they were used to improve job seeking systems for better employer ‘outcomes’.
Warriors, hang on before we go any further.

Let’s review a few flies in this ointment.
a) Since ESSA has embedded WIOA, the ‘job seeking’ is happening as young as 2nd grade in some States. The ‘job seeking’ is also found outside traditional public schools via dual enrollment, fast tracking career systems like apprenticeships, internships, early career or college schools, etc. ALL this impacts every ‘school choice’, including homeschools.
**It’s not so much the student seeking a job, as it is the job is seeking the student, before the student is capable!

b) As far as ’employer outcomes’, since WIOA, HEA, and, ESSA embedded P3s (public private partnerships) we’ve seen an insane increase in how much the corporate employer ‘needs’ have ruined academics. We’ve seen businesses with zero educational training usurp teachers for their purposes.
**States are allowing this to happen every day they receive ANY type of federal funding or P3 funding!

c) The WQDI (Workforce Quality Data Initiative) is ‘married’ to the SLDS (Student Longitudinal Data System) FOR one purpose: aligned education for workforce needs. Regardless of what school (even homeschoolers) are in this system already or become a part of the system as soon as they participate in any of ‘a’ (above).
**Being a free nation, this type of data tracking is not only illegal, it’s ‘data rape’!

Warriors, as far as the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s information, WIOA Waivers aren’t so much needed now, as they were codified when WIOA was passed into law (2014). However, much like the State Plans for ESSA which needed to be submitted to the Sec. of Education (DeVos), the State Plans for WIOA are still in use (2019). These Plans are called WIOA Unified or Combined State Plans and must be submitted to the Sec. of Labor.
**By submission of those Plans, States gave full access to the federal government as far as data.

These State Plans? We, the People, can access them on the U.S. Dept. of Education’s website! Look below at the way I found this out:

I thought by clicking a phrase on the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s website, I’d be taken to another Labor page:
labor2ed1
This is where I was taken next:

labor2ed2
Followed by this ‘surprise’:

labor2ed3
(Source)

According to the U.S. Dept. of Education’s page I found this on, almost every State has a plan which has been approved by the feds. No State’s able to make its own plan for its own people or by those taxpayers. It’s all been run through the globally led workforce needs based system of control. The only States without an approved WIOA State Plan are TN, MI, MA, NE, and VA. The only U.S. Territory without one is the Virgin Islands.

I urge you to look at your State Plan. If you have none, let’s use NC’s as an example of what you’ll find that kills personal choice in education.

a) The NC Plan is 399 pages long and is dated FY 2018. NC elected to go with a “Unified” Plan which means all the alignment will come from every possible agency, program, and, angle. Those most targeted? “Under-served populations” including youth.

b) Page 3 shows the 6 ‘cores’ of WIOA. These ‘cores’ cover all age groups and population types. You’ll also find ‘partner’ programs will hinge off these 6 ‘cores’.

c) Page 4 shows the partners. In education, CTE (Career Tech Ed) covers all ages/choices; federal-to-state funding streams for TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and Community Block Grants are also intersecting with education; Veterans funding will also be involved.

d) Page 7 reveals the industry specific economic targets for the State. Somehow, this is going to bring prosperity to every North Carolinian citizen. How, those “Prosperity Zones (PZs)”
I’ve researched and shown you before. These Zones were legislatively created and embedded 2014 and 2015 (respectively). When I last wrote about the PZs it was 2018. You’ll see just how eerily deceptive these Zones are and how easily the globalization of a barely educated workforce lurks underneath.

e) Pages 11 and 12 will show you all kinds of figures on job growth per industry. Page 13 reveals that employers are ‘bullish’ on growing jobs. Warriors, we’ve seen their ‘bull’ long enough and how it’s ruining our children. On the pages which follow, you’ll see lots of CCSS Machine organizations and phrases used to create the false narrative that a) there’s a skills gap and b) the only way to fix it is via aligned education/training. For more on ‘a’ and ‘b’, go here.

p24NCplan
f) Near Page 25, you’ll see the Governor of NC mentioned. His plan combines education directly with skills. Warriors, did you know that when WIOA was passed in 2014, the increase in power given to the office of governor greatly increased? Thereby weakening taxpayers voices yet again. Many of the programs Gov. Cooper is using were already laid out before him. That he’s extending and adding to them, let’s us know regardless of politics, the global workforce/kill personal choice is alive and well.

Lastly, every bit of what’s contained in the NC Plan and others will unite data to kill personal choice in what you learn, where you work, and lots more.

Look below and see how ‘far’ we’ve come. See much ‘personal choice’? I don’t.

Closing:

Warriors, I hope you can see how little our personal freedoms mean to our federal government. I hope you can see how little choice you really have when it comes to ‘education’.


“Quality Provisions” Are A Farce

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we were last together, I left you with the fact that in the coming days I’d dive into more federal level legislation which is actually setting our nation up to fail in massive ways. Most especially our citizens when it comes to their education…at EVERY level.

If you missed just how badly the Congressional ‘provisions‘ for higher education will fail our students, I encourage you to find out about HR 2859.

ancientscroll

If you’ve not heard of HR 3199, it’s very similar to HR 2859. It also amends the HEA (Higher Education Act), it also will fast-track and data rape students in post-secondary education. It also uses CBE (Competency Based Education) which over-assesses students to the point of utter frustration.

However, HR 3199 targets those who are disabled and/or have special needs.
I wrote about this absolutely horrible bill back in late 2017. I urge you, to re-read it.

globeed

Over in the Senate? Oh, they’ve been busy too, coming up with ways to ‘amend’ the HEA for ‘quality’ and ‘provisions’.

S 2342, Innovation Zone Act:

Currently, this Bill is sitting in the Senate’s HELP Committee. S 2342, would literally use your student’s ‘higher education success’ as as experiment (voluntary, of course) in ‘statutory and regulatory flexibility’. Warriors, that’s double speak for:
Data mining, increasing how much information your student retains, reducing debt connected to higher education, as well as, placing all the power to choose/conduct/assess these experiments at the feet of Sec. DeVos.

Which schools will she choose? That depends on which post-secondary schools volunteer. “Bonuses” will be given to any school which wishes to ‘fast track’ their cooperation.
Anywhere between 5 and 100 schools will be all that are needed to carry out this 10 year experiment. The IES (Institute of Educational Sciences) will also be in on all the data tracking (aka ‘student data rape’) going on.

P3s( public private partnerships) which come with ‘innovation’ and data mining will be allowed to be involved in the experimentation using OUR citizens! On Page 2, lines 20 and 21, are most concerning in the amount of gray area is given to what else will be included in this experiment. Basically, any ‘innovation’ U.S. Dept. of Education chooses which will ‘benefit’ your student.

What else? Any school in this experiment will become known as an ‘innovation zone’.

fedinnovationgrants
(Article where you will find this picture)

Warriors, we’re seeing how Congress is using the word ‘innovation’ against us in K-12th grades, do we really trust them when our kids are adults?!

(*Note: in the current Senate version of the re-authorization for HEA, S 615 (Higher Education Innovation Act), you will be able to see how the word is a cruel deceptive word used intentionally.)

Warriors, again, a pausing moment. I am NOT trying to be the doomsday alarmist in the War Vs the Core. We KNOW we cannot take these federal bills at their word. Deception run amuck is what is happening.

When D.C. leaves a ‘gray’ area, we SHOULD be demanding answers! When the CCSS Machine helps create these bills using our kids as experiments AND gives the Secretary of Education a HUGE increase in power over them, we SHOULD be storming D.C.!

HR 2590:

Also giving DeVos another boost in power is HR 2590 (Computer Science for All Act). My article on HR 2590 will show you more, but note that via this bill, DeVos is to award grants throughout K-12th grade education for as much computer indoctrination as possible. “Computer Science for All” was an Obama-era White House created initiative which has since been codified in ESSA. (Source)

(*Note: my 2017 article exposing the CCSS Machine’s effort to glorify the ‘father of computer science’ will give you lots of related background information.)

commentcard

HR 3636 and S 1694, “Educator Preparatory Reform Act”:

Warriors, these ‘sisters’ will also go hand in hand with the student abuse. When you think about it, they have to. As we’ve been told by the CCSS Machine guru, Bill Gates, the assessments drive the curriculum. Well, the curriculum AND assessments drive the teachers!
If you’ve not seen the article I wrote on how abusive ESSA’s language to teachers (concerning their pay) is, please take a few minutes to review it.

So, what do HR 3636 and S 1694 have in common?
a) Both were introduced in August 2017.
b) Both sit in their respective Committees (3636 is in the Education and Workforce; 1694 is in the HELP).
c) Both are 52 pages long.
d) Both amend the HEA.
e) Both appear to be carbon copies of each other. I’ll highlight a few items from each Bill below.

S 1694 broadens the definition of ‘educator’. While ‘teacher’ is included, basically anyone who could be leading your student in the classroom (or across the campus) will have the ‘educator’ label. Warriors, by redefining who is able to educate this opens the door for all kinds of trouble. (*Note, the embedded link to my article laying out how ESSA’s doing this, click on ‘pay’, above.)

Also in S 1694 will be data mining from formative and summative assessments from the students K-12th grade education. The data will be carried through in post-secondary education as well as the same national, state, and, local assessments. Warriors, this will tie back to Title One funding. It’ll also tie back to Perkins funding (which feeds the CTE, Career Tech Education arm of the CCSS Machine).

HR 3636 will show you the sections of the HEA which will be redesignated, especially for teachers. This is just before the same redefining of who qualifies as an educator. On Pages 7 and 8, you’ll need to see what the principals will now be responsible for in your communities. (Warriors, is it only me, or did you notice that a Bill for amending HEA is addressing K-12 principals?)

Also from HR 3636, you’ll see how the teacher training is heavily dependent on their assessments. This will also be part of Title 2 funding. This, of course, opens the flood gates for the CCSS Machine’s P3s (public private partnerships) in PD (professional development), Warriors. We’ve seen this happen quite heavily in K-12th education, as well as post-secondary for a while now. (*Note: in case you missed my latest article about this type of alignment, go here.)

Closing:

Warriors, because these two Bills will impact every single type of post-secondary educator, we MUST alert our fellow Warriors; our family members or friends who are among this particular group, and, our leaders.

As far as ‘quality’, I see none in any of these Bills.

In my next article, Warriors, I’ll show some more federal education legislation and the continued farce-worthy leadership being exerted against We the People.
