Anti Fed Ed Warriors, shifts in time, have happened for us. Down through history. For example, our shift in how we read the Bible, what version we read, our very calendars were also shifted.
We’ve seen and witnessed shifts in beliefs, traditions, money, foods, who leads us, and, how they lead us. So, seeing a modern day shift in education isn’t really all that surprising. Warriors, the truth is THIS shift isn’t going to need 300 years to complete.
I believe we shouldn’t be surprised. I believe we should be striking back!
Why? It’s one thing to warn others by telling them to remove themselves from situations which can harm them. It’s another if we don’t also warn that the shifts are coming from ALL directions and they are all positioned on education.
It doesn’t matter what ‘school choice’ you exercise. These purposed and powerful shifts we are seeing will spare no one.
If our houses were on fire, we’d run out the front door, assuming safety. But what happens when the fire is coming for us from the back door, at the same time?!
In my second installment of this series you are reading, I closed with the fact we’d look at the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s take on all this shifting of academic education to workforce preparation. The workforce preparation is being heralded by DC as ‘great’.
U.S. Dept. of Labor’s Workforce Development Shift:
Warriors, below is a screen shot highlighting the latest news from DoL. They are so proud..and they want you to feel good about the abuse of taxpayer funds (aka: grants) helping the agenda live on.
Warriors, I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel any better about taxpayer abuse at ANY level. Especially the federal level. Why? The U.S. Dept. of Labor is JUST as unconstitutional as the U.S. Dept. of Education. Apprenticeships COMBINE these two agencies and put businesses in charge of the standards.
Our education system is shifting because it’s being hijacked!
Another piece of the educratic shift goes to the ‘soft skills’ workforce development claims is good for our learners (again, any age and any choice of institution). “Soft skills” are those internal attitudes and beliefs which are attached to our values. The CCSS Machine calls it SEL or social emotional learning. Why does workforce education (development) give a hoot about your social emotional status (see item #6)?
Will you conform and serve the workforce well or will you need micro-managing? If you need micro-managing, don’t fret, the federal government has human capital ‘police’ to guide you back into the fold.
Warriors, what federal agency oversees our emotions? (Hint: it’s part of health).
That’s right, the U.S. Dept. of Health/Human Services. ALSO, unconstitutional.
So the shift we’re seeing is in the hands of the ‘unholy trinity’ (as I call them). The trio that makes up U.S. Ed, U.S. Labor, and U.S. Health. In ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) these 3 federal departments were given the largest increases in power, we’ve seen in a long time. Since ESSA was supposed to be an educational law, you’d assume the federal agency over education would have the largest power increase of the 3. No, it was health/human services. Now, go back and look at the top 3 career fields. How many are attached to not only labor, but health care?
1) If you missed my article detailing the HARD and SMART Goals being used across the USA right now, in the name of workforce prep (education), go here.
2) If you’re curious as to just how many of our federal agencies are unconstitutional, this previously published news service has an eye-opener.
3) If you’ve not heard of the Committee for Children, my 2018 article has tons of researched information.
In the fourth installment, we’ll look a bit closer at the workforce shift unfolding before us.
Warriors, one of the things we’ve seen shifting is the funding of education and all that goes with it. Workforce development, in this case, is just the latest. However, it’s the last nail in our coffins, so to speak.
Many, many others have been deeply concerned with America’s direction in shifting taxpayers funds away from We, the People to It, the Government.
Way back in the early 1800s Thomas Jefferson wrote to John Taylor. They both were concerned with funding being used at government excess to fund so many things it quite frankly had no business funding. Hmm, Jefferson and Taylor would be incensed with the shifting and excess today. Shouldn’t we, also, be incensed?
Very recently, the US federal government (based out of the U.S. Dept. of HHS, Health and Human Services) announced an increased effort to data track and mine all the States when it comes to Behavior Health programs. Housed within U.S. Dept. of HHS is the CMS Office (Centers for Medicare/Medicaid).
Below is a screen shot of the news.
How does this US effort play into the UN effort? Government controlled health care!
First off, the alignment between federal and State levels, who is enrolled in behavior health programs (BH), and, lastly who is overseeing the BH programs.
Warriors, you’ll also see the rhetoric that the States can set up their own BH programs, but HOW is that really possible with federal-to-State alignment?!
Contained within the State Health Performance Points aka: State Health mandated parameters are items like immunization and making healthcare more affordable. Warriors, where have we heard/seen these before, from the federal government?
Those ‘well child visits’ will include how successful a parent you are during the first 15 months of your child’s life. What two CCSS Machine groups determined this? The AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) and Bright Futures (BF is an arm of the AAP and designed for well being from birth to age 21).
Among the BF Adivors and Steering Committee, you’ll see CCSS Machine member group Kaiser Permanente (also a big pusher of the ‘resilience’ movement to control community wide mental health ‘outcomes’.) and Blue Cross/Blue Shield.
********************** Warriors, did you see the shift from government determined to private entity determined? This would point to a P3 (Public/Private Parternship). ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act also mandated an increase in P3s for ‘student success’ and ‘whole family engagement’.
If you look below all the Bright Futures advisors and steering members, you’ll see that Bright Futures works WITH Head Start. Head Start will also include Early Head Start. BOTH “Starts” are CCSS Machine dictated and government funded.
From the “Fact Sheet” for the ‘new’ data from CMS/CHIP, you’ll also see ‘managed care contracts’. This will mean the data tracking net will be spread even wider than before. (*Note: the ‘fact sheet’ is embedded in this paragraph’s title.)
Below, is a screen shot from the “Core Set” of new BH (Behavior Health) data tracking points Medicaid and CHIP will be using. Note that some items will require bodily fluids. Is that REALLY within the jurisdiction of a school?! Biometrics is part of the CCSS Machine grab for all of us, but it starts with students from all education choices!
Seen below is from the ‘guidance’ section for technical support in the new data tracking for Medicaid/CHIP.
If you wish to see the other quality control measures the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services has to use with the new Medicaid/CHIP data tracking, go here.
If you missed my recent article about U.S. Dept. of Ed’s Secretary DeVos misusing Title One funds for similar tracking of our kids/misusing our schools, go here.
If you’re not sure how specialized support for behavior health is being aligned to federal mandates in ESSA and supporting ESSA, I urge you to read this!
I’ve given you access to all the archives I have on this topic. Many of these articles include other anti CCSS Warriors/anti Fed Ed Warriors’ research, too. Especially Anita Hoge’s.
I urge you to take a look. You’ll be able to trace the overreaching patterns through the years.
Warriors, I cannot stress enough how serious it is we STOP all federal overreaches into our behavior and mental health overreaches in education.
1) Warriors, I have 3 pages of behavioral health/CCSS Machine articles.
2) On the topic of mental health, my blog has 12 pages of archived articles. Many of these articles center on how mental health/education overreaches will be used against EACH and EVERY American, not just students in public schools.
3) If you’ve not seen all my SEL articles, there are 13 pages. Many of these will also be found in the ‘mental health’ category.
4) From around the nation, what some States are already facing in BH programming to fit the CCSS Machine’s‘tune’ for our youngest learners.
5) How intrusive will all the data mining/tracking be? Massive!
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, don’t you just ‘love’ it when the U.S. Dept. of Education dreams up more ways in which to abuse our tax payer dollars?
Would you believe Sec. DeVos has announced new rounds of competitive grants (those are your taxpayer dollars, by the way) for supposedly making schools safer?!
Warriors, I’m not saying we shouldn’t have ‘safe’ schools, but you have to consider that what we think when we hear ‘safe’ is NOT what the CCSS Machine means when it uses that word.
The Latest Round of Grants:
You can find the press release here. Look below, Warriors, and see the screen shot. For a mere $65 million dollars, our students and school staff will be aligned to the Every Student Succeeds Act, ESSA mandates (as laid out by the CCSS Machine) for ‘school safety’. Look at the fast approaching deadlines, too. So much for a summer break, huh?
Warriors, let’s consider that since all this ‘school safety’ business is part of ESSA’s mandates, that our LEAs (local education agencies) have had school safety plans all along. They HAD to, in order to have all ESSA State Plans approved in the first place! If you read the ESSA law (or Final Conference Report version), you saw States HAD to comply with national/federal provisions or at least show evidence of compliance!
In other words, Warriors, the set-up for mental health (aka “safe schools” measures) is going exactly as planned. These grants may be new, but the agenda behind them is NOT. The deck has been stacked against We the People since the CCSS Machine rolled into our lives. What’s the worst, is our children and school staff members are being used as the bait and switch.
If you missed the Presidential (Trump) appointed Federal Commission on School Safety, here’s their website. Sec. DeVos was placed as the lead member.
Project Prevent is based off the final 2018 Report the Federal Commission on School Safety (as presented to President Trump), the biggest takeaways are geo-tracking and school shootings (2nd Amendment has long been a back door agenda item from the CCSS Machine.) If you’d like to see what the ‘fine print’ of Project Prevent entail, the Federal Registry has that information.
School Climate Grants will increase the MTS (Multi Tier Supports) used in mental health services in our schools. As you know, Warriors, we’ve been warned MANY times as to the harm poorly trained and/or non medically certified leaders will force upon our students. Here’s what the Federal Registry has in the ‘fine print department’ on these Grants.
The Mental Health Professional Grants will increase the presence of P3s in our schools, in the name of safety AND mental health well-being. These Grants will use medically trained and licensed health care professionals. However, P3s are unconstitutional! You can find the Federal Registry’s details, here. (*Note: P3s are short for Public Private Partnerships. These are unconstitutional in the fact they are a fascist based tool which uses public money without public consent for private agenda.)
Warriors, remember this: Sec. DeVos is THE one who decides which LEAs get these grants! Remember: zero educational, mental health, or, emergency preparedness credentials, degrees, or, diplomas are held by Sec. DeVos.
1) From the 115th Congress session, the mental health and school safety overreaches were gearing up in big ways. Now that we’re in the 116th Session, what’s survived? What’s increasing? Read this and see if you can notice the connections to DeVos’s latest announcement.
2) What can we expect in the Trump/Pence 2020 Campaign on mental health and school safety? Plenty. Note in this article how EVERYTHING Sec. DeVos has done ‘for’ education is being counted as a great American move. What do the other candidates have in store for us as far as education and/or mental health? My 5 part “Prudence Files” series lays it all out.
3) School safety and mental health services will DEMAND massive amounts of data collection, sharing, and tracking. Are you sure the US federal government is concerned about your privacy?
4) From May 2019, my latest on the overreaches of Congress into multi-tier supports in mental health. These overreaches match ESSA and these new Grants.
5) From March 2019, the constant data tracking in the name of safety and mental health. Remember, these services are for all education choices, not simply public schools. Data tracking will also involveSIBs (social impact bonds), as well as ‘gender bonds’ and more. These overlap into ‘safety’ and ‘health’.
6) How does RtI (Response to Intervention) play into the mental health overreaches? RtI is a global tool backed by not only the UN, but Marc Tucker’s educratic plans the CCSS Machine’s been using for years.
7) The Mental Health push is in America, and going at break neck speed due to our involvement with the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), the UN (United Nations), and the World Bank. Mental health, in their ‘eyes’ is called SEL or Social Emotional Learning. If you missed the details to HOW all this fits our Congressional bills we are seeing (not to mention these new Grants DeVos will hand out), read this. Warriors, as we know SEL is embedded in ESSA in several ways.
8) Introduced just one day ahead of the U.S. Dept. of Ed’s announcement for these new grants (which are being rushed out), was the 116th Congressional bill, HR 3539. What does HR 3539 do? Sets up the U.S. Dept of HHS (Health and Human Services) to oversee teams of behavior health teams in our communities, especially our schools! Representative Ferguson (GA) has a press release giving more details.
Warriors, remember that the U.S. Dept. of HHS received the largest power increase/overreach, thanks to ESSA. The U.S. Dept. of Education and Labor also received huge power/overreach increases.
Warriors, I urge you to stop whatever summer vacationing you may be doing. Contact your representatives who are involved with HR 3539 and HALT this bill NOW!
Contact your LEAs and urge them to keep education 100% local by NOT accepting DeVos’s new Grants.
Urge your Senators and other leaders to work with you (and the rest of us Warriors) to REPEAL ESSA and every other federal educratic law. We MUST repeal laws first, then we can have much better success at ending federally run education.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, do you remember when I shared with you that ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) would broaden the definition of which students were most ‘at-risk’? How about when I first showed you how ESSA would encroach on homeschoolingfamilies?
Well, it’s getting even worse. Every day and in every State. We’ve looked at the increasing amount of ‘in-home visits’ and what that means about parental rights, data privacy, and all that surrounds both.
But do you know that there are at least 25 States where ‘failure to educate’ your child is grounds for the children being removed from your home?
Warriors, re-read that. HALF of the United States (‘home of the free and land of the brave’) can remove your child from your home IF they are labeled ‘at risk’ or ‘failure to educate’ has been proven.
It’s not the State Dept. of Education which will do this, it’s the State level of Family and Children Services (usually housed in your State Dept. of Health/Human Services).
Warriors, do you remember, I often I’ve shared in interviews that the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services was given the largest power increase (for overreach purposes in education) via ESSA?! If you look at the federal budgets since ESSA, you’ll see that the power increase has been well funded with some disturbing plans connected.
We cannot rely on ALL education overreaches into our homes will come from ONE direction, federal OR state level. We MUST realize the ‘cradle to grave’ grab is coming from MANY angles.
The CCSS Machine has turned away from the sole focus of students and has zeroed in on entire families. The US federal government (regardless of political party or Administrative leadership) has also ignored and disregarded families where the PARENTS are the authority and have inserted themselves as the PARENT. The government has hyper-focused on THEIR ability to fulfill ALL those ‘unmet needs’.
Warriors, the State leaders are following this pattern, ‘lock, stock, and barrel’!
This is WHY students are being labeled as ‘at-risk’!! The government has shifted the definition of who is truly in trouble in life to mean any student who doesn’t MEASURE up to ‘college and career readiness’!
This encompasses those who homeschool, especially! Families are being measured to see if Johnny and Suzy are ‘ready’, if not, parents CAN be charged with ‘failure to educate’!
Why is our federal and state level government doing this? To meet the mandates in ESSA! That’s the most honest way to put it, Warriors.
From WY To You:
Warriors, I saw the picture you see below on Facebook a few days ago, and I was curious as to what other States, besides WY are set up for this:
What group shared this? WY Liberty Group. While I couldn’t find the ‘other 24’ on this website, I did notice the many articles on ‘school choice’.
So, where can we find the list of the other States? Here’s what I found:
Warriors, if you’re interested, here’s the document detailing the felony charges for NOT reporting child neglect. From that document, you’ll see CT and MD have the toughest parameters. Why would I include this document? Because if you look closely, you’ll see that educators are among those who are charged with reporting neglect.
From the same website, this 2018 information, updated the news from above.
I’ll be sure to provide the entire PDF for ‘identifying neglect’, but look at what else can be found in this 2018 Report:
If you homeschool or have ‘chronic truancy’, this resource not only listed the States (from the same website I used above, but includes each State’s statute detailing the ‘failure to educate’.
Look at this archived article of mine, where the States are laid out with the most SEL(Social and Emotional Learning) alignment. How many of these States are also the States citing ‘failure to educate’?
Warriors, no one I know likes to be forced to do something. However, I hope you can see how ESSA, the CCSS Machine, and, our government are forcing our families into smaller and smaller ‘spaces’ where our liberty and freedoms are protected.
How dare our government decree that only ‘they’ can ascertain who is educationally ready to face the world! Remember, the federal government has no business directing the States in education matters for ANY reason. The States, also, should be exercising what’s best for their citizens, not what satisfies unconstitutional laws.
Maybe no one from your local or State government has come to your home yet. Maybe no one from the federal government has notified you of ‘failure to educate’.
However, Warriors, with the traps set in place; laws to give teeth to those ESSA mandates, we CANNOT gamble with our children’s place in our homes. WE MUST BE DILIGENT TO PROTECT THEM. STOP THE CCSS MACHINE!
**Personal note, I’ll be out of town most of this week due to a speaking engagement.
Look for a new article coming soon.
So where’s the Black Rose Anarchist Federation (BRAF) ? In the funding. You’ll find this on the “Budding Roses”About page near the bottom. Funds were raised on-line.
However, Warriors, look at what’s on the BRAF’swebsite:
Do you see the difference color makes as far as the visual of the children? Do you see the attitudes portrayed?
Here’s a quote from their “About Us” section, “Black Rose Anarchist Federation / Federación Anarquista Rosa Negra (BRRN) is a political organization with locals in over a dozen cities sharing a common set of politics and creating a shared strategic vision of how to build “popular power” in workplaces, neighborhoods, schools and all sectors of society towards the goal of libertarian socialism.”
(*Note: if you’re not sure what a ‘libertarian socialist’ is, read the 1997 definition from the Anarchist’s Library. It’s pretty eye-opening stuff.)
If you’re like me and have never heard of this political party, here’s a visual I found from Reddit which shows you about where their beliefs and practices will be:
******************************************************************************** Warriors, think about the ramifications toward the 4th-8th graders.
Think about the fact this is in over 12 cities (see below).
Think about this is a free camp/year round effort, so not only public school kids will have access.
Think about activist leaders. Will their beliefs match your family’s?
Think about it this way, what if other political groups hosted free summer camps/year round activities? They would become breeding grounds for each specific set of beliefs.
Again, what if they don’t match your family’s?
Think about the educators involved. Are they using their classrooms as ‘bully pulpits’ the rest of the time they spend with students?
Think about this from the international, or global, perspective. This type of camp would easily fit right into the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
Think about how this will turn the students away from honoring all authority.
********************************************************************************** Black Rose was formed in 2013 and merges 6 different US local and regional entities.
You’ll find BRFA in WA, TX, VA, OR, NY, FL, IL, NM, CA, and, MA. Cities are: Los Angeles, Miami, Boston, Chicago, Austin, San Antonio, New York City, Richmond, Albuquerque, and, Seattle. Regions are the Central part of IL and the Bay Area of CA.
While At Camp:
So, Warriors, let’s say one of your kids goes to a Budding Roses Camp. What will they do? What educational resources are available?
Below is a screen shot excerpt of one of the recommended reading resources:
Warriors, “Bell Hooks” is always written in lower case and is a pen name. The bell hooks Institute is housed in Berea College (KY). Her own words about “Teaching To Transgress” can be read here. In summary, her views are progressive, whole child, and, social justice. The ‘perfect’ blend of the CCSS Machine has sold as ‘personalized social emotional learning for the greater global good’.
Warriors, if you’re not sure what camp-like activities your child would have, go to the Budding Roses“About” page and read the very short paragraph on ‘Daily Activities’.
It certainly isn’t the type of summer camp adults may remember having fun at.
Supporting The #RedForEd Teacher Walkouts:
Warriors, it’s not been a secret that the roots for the #RedForEd Teacher Walkouts have been identified. The 3 States in May 2019 and the AZ one are very troubling, as kids ended up being the biggest losers of the day.
But did you know the BRAF supports Teacher Walkouts? From their 5th Annual Convention (2018), you’ll see evidence. You can also find evidence (see below) on the Budding Roses Camp website. If you read more of the 2018 Convention Report, you’ll see Latin American countries were invited to participate. You’ll also see lots of militant viewpoints about the United States.
One last thing I can share with you about the BRAF. It’s known by the initials BRRN, not what I referred to them as. The BRRN stands for Black Rose/Rosa Negra Anarchist Federation.
Warriors, not much more information is out there about the BRRN (BRAF). What should stick with us, however, is how un-American all this is. It should bother us that this is open and accessible indoctrination in our communities. It should be an action point to combat the over militant and sexuality prongs of the Libertarian Socialism political views in our schools. Teaching children, in schools and in our communities, to reject all authority will leave us, as their parents, grandparents, friends, and, neighbors in terrible situations.
Not that I’m being over simplifying things here, but think about the kids movie “Jimmy Neutron”. The part where all the parents vanished and the kids were in total control.
It didn’t take long for their town to become out of control.
BRRN (BRAF)’s social justice camp for kids they are producing will breed anarchist Jimmy and Jill Neutrons.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we know Pearson Publishing is one of the WORST companies to be involved in education. However, besides PP, there are other really bad education (or so they claim) companies out there as well.
Today’s article is all about some of the CCSS Machine’s latest ads which are meant to pull you into the trap that workforce based and SEL (social emotional learning) based education are the saving graces of America.
Certiport By Pearson Vue:
Warriors, the ad (not seen below) I saw on social media was crystal clear in its intent. A seamless transition from school to work with Certiport’s credentialized system.
To see the badging video, go here.
To read about the Pearson company, go here.
To see and read the ‘white paper’, find that, here.
Other Certiport news bits: the company has been around since 1997 and is in 148 countries in 26 different languages. By having Pearson Certiport credentials your resume will stand out and your academic performance in the classroom will soar.
One concern which stood out to me is if you are receiving a certificate for your own small business, why is Pearson only equipping you with ‘middle skills’? What are ‘middle skills’? Look below for Harvard University’s answer:
Warriors, here’s a question, since on-line learning is set to wipe out jobs and professions, what happens when it wipes out the brick and mortar trade schools and/or community colleges? These are ‘middle skills’ territory. Most are the two year ‘stepping stone’ to jobs and or 4 year colleges.
You can find Certiport in the US under Cengage, Learn Key, Inc., Total Seminars, Total Training, NY Wired for Education (Metrix), and, Pearson.
Lead2Feed (L2F) :
Next up, in the education hype category, is a ‘feel good, do good’organization which gives free (and comprehensive) SEL (social emotional), CTE (Career Tech Eduation), CCSS (Common Core State Standards), 21st Century Skills (21st Century Readiness), PBL (Project Based Learning), and literacy to any school or community group who registers. It’s called “Lead2Feed”. The curriculum is based off a business model, not an education model.
L2F Board members (tied to education) can be found representing CTE (from TX, CA, and, OR), Gifted/Talented (OH and VA), AP, faith-based, special education, business education, agriculture science, consumer science, IT, social science, and, principals.
L2F is geared for 6th to 12th graders. It unites education and the community with ‘innovation’. It’s been around since 2012. The Foundation for Impact on Literacy and Learning and the Lift a Life Foundation are the co-founding groups. They have chosen
the former CEO of “Yum!” brand foods*, David Novak to base all their curriculum off of. (*Note: while you may not recognize “Yum!”, you will recognize Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and, KY Fried Chicken. “Yum!” is the parent to all of these companies.)
Mr. Novak has written a book titled “Taking People With You: The Only Way to Make Big Things Happen”. According the to L2F lesson sample, Novak is stated to be an ‘expert’ in leadership and recognition culture.
What’s ‘recognition culture’? Basically it’s a way to incentivize employees for better job performance. It’s a leveraging tool, Warriors.
Why would the Foundation for Literacy and Learning, as well as the Lift a Life Foundation choose Mr. Novak? Novak’s family IS Lift a Life Foundation!
To learn about the Global Game Changers, visit their website.
To see the Univ. of MO’s article on the $21.6 million dollar gift, go here.
Warriors, this long time CCSS Machine member group hasn’t slowed down its education overreaches ONE bit.
To see Lumina’s stance on federal overreaches in education, go here.
Has anyone questioned groups like Lumina to see where in the U.S. Constitution federal overreaches are legal? If not, why not? These groups shouldn’t push unconstitutional activities in D.C. If we haven’t stopped groups like this, why not?!
********************************************** Warriors, back in March 2019, I showed you how Lumina, the Gates Foundation, and, others, were actively setting up our kids for what workforce collar they would wear.
In February of this year, I showed you how Lumina’s overreaches were felt around the globe (and especially here in the US) for PBL (Project Based Learning), the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), and, more.
Warriors, we don’t have to look too far back in history to see haughty looks from young people groomed for a collective society where everyone is a productive member. Is this really what America’s being reshaped for?
I believe not only IS this the reality, but it’s among us and growing daily.
Lastly, if you’re not sure how important the differences between being a free citizen in an independent nation and being a controlled citizen of a dependent nation are, watch this short You Tube video.
If we’re not stopping the corporate and legislative overreaches, I want to know WHY. I bet you do, too!
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we know there’s tremendous amount of overreach into our schools. We know, since ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), that the overreach doesn’t stop at the textbook.
Much has been written about the mind-grab; the mental health labels; the sheer amount of abuse being carried out in our schools and THROUGH our schools.
What do I mean?
Not everyone who’s been caught up in the mind-grab/mental health labeling is a public school child. Some are too young or too old to be in the public K-12th system; others are outside of the public system altogether, but, due to umbrella programs and after-school activities, the overreaches are funneled through these. We also know that entire families are being held almost captive to this system with ‘wrap around services for student success’.
One of the main things are States are doing to ‘dance to the ESSA tune’ is to create laws for MORE school mental health professionals and social workers. If you read my article a couple of days ago, you may remember the lion’s share of the $649 billion spent on public education is for teachers and professional staff. So much is being re-directed to ‘other school professionals’ that other much MORE needed programs are cut or eliminated.
My point? Like other Anti Fed Ed Warriors and concerned taxpayers is that medical services do not need to be inserted into our schools. Schools are supposed to be institutions of learning, not medicating or psychiatric wards.
*As always, on a topic like this, I need to state that I am NOT anti-mental health services or social work services, but as a Mom and a taxpayer, I know those services need to be separated from education. I also know as important as these services are, they should be 100%, they should be staffed by 100% qualified professional with real degrees and not fast track credentials.
What ESSA and the CCSS MachineHAS done to ‘medication’ (medicine + education = medication) is turn our schools into what Anita Hoge has called ‘quasi hospitals’. Talk to parents from around the nation and you’ll see her research proving this is spot on.
Warriors, you need to know that social workers also use the DSM in treating clients.
Meet HR 1532:
Warriors, this 116th Congressional bill is titled the “Dorothy I. Height and Whitney M. Young, Jr. Social Work Reinvestment Act”. It’s sponsor is Rep. Lee (CA). Rep. Lee is one of the social workers in Congress who also sits on the Congressional SW (Social Workers) Caucus.
Basically, the Bill sets up a new national, federally controlled Commission (independent from Congress and the U.S. Dept. of HHS, Health and Human Services) for policy moves in the social work sector. Warriors, remember, policy is the interpretation of law, NOT the law itself. Whomever, or, whatever group in charge of policy, gets to set the agenda.
Of special note concerning HR 1532:
a) From the Contents: Sect. 203 ‘reinvestment grants’ to States (from the Feds) for the social work profession.
b) Page 7, Children’s Defense Fund/ NCES (National Center for Education Statistics) cited information
c) Page 8, Community based programs.
d) Page 11, CSWE (Council on Social Work Education) is the ONLY acknowledged group for the profession by the Council for Higher Education.
e) Page 13, begins the federal level commission layout (ends on Page 20).
f) Sect. 201, federal grants to support social workers.
g) Sect. 203, begins; social work education/training grants.
h) Page 28, the Social Work Commission will contract with a national social work entity (either the National Assoc. of Social Workers or the Council on Social Work Education, CSWE) for all policy-making.
i) Page 29, P3s (public private partnerships) and collaborations in social work and through social work.
Warriors, I hope you can see that HR 1532 would further ‘stack the deck’ in favor of federal overreaches into our minds. Especially the minds of our students. Take into consideration that for all this partnershipping in the name of behavior/mental health, massive amounts of data will be needed, lots of tests and assessments will be in order as well. When you also consider that only ONE group will be in charge of ALL policies related, this should be a huge warning sign for us.
We must protect our children’s mental health! We must have a place at the ‘table’ when it comes to who treats our students, how qualified they are, and, what nationalized standards are involved.
There should be ZERO nationalized standards in education OR education related supports!
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, as parents and taxpayers, we know that there are times the ‘bear’ in us needs to rise up and roar. Since ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is firmly in place, we know the grab for our littlest children is upon us. As you know, I’ve written many articles about these overreaches, especially into our homes.
So, imagine my disgust as the State I live in (NC) was almost gleeful over new ways to EXPAND the data rape of our children via ‘in home visits’ to align those children from birth to 8 years of age to a workforce traced education system.
Why ‘data rape’? Not ‘data collection’? Because the amount of personal private information harvested WITHOUT proper consent is THAT bad.
I also use that particular data term in relation to the recent webinar I attended. I asked about the need for parental consent with minor’s data, I was assured that all the expansion was protected under the existing FERPA (Family Educational Rights to Privacy Act) and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) .
Not one word about the recent impacts of FEPA (Foundations for Evidence-based Policy-making Act). Why would these be of concern?
Warriors, the existing FERPA was gutted by an Obama era Executive Order and has NEVER been restored to fully protect the privacy of the family in educational matters. HIPAA is also not bullet proof in protecting your personal private data as it stands. FEPA makes the Patriot Act, FERPA, and, HIPPA look like child’s play compared to all that the data rape being unleashed on EVERY American.
**I’ve no clue if the presenting ‘experts’ realize FERPA is gutted/that FEPA will definitely be relevant/ or that/HIPAA is a joke for privacy, or, if they are being misled (or just don’t care). Anyway a parent and taxpayer looks at it, this is all terrible news.
**In asking some tough questions after the webinar, I was able to learn that NC’s expansion for data tracking alignment between existing trails and in-home visits is being paid for out of ‘our’ PreK Development ‘award’.
1) While our subject so far has been on in-home visits and data tracking/alignment, the webinar was a bit confusing to me, at first. As you see, the title suggests grade level reading. Then you see in home visiting. It wasn’t until the ‘meat’ of the presentation that 3 different programs are being intertwined became clearer. The CGLR (Campaign for Grade Level Reading), the SSI (Sustainability Scale Pilot Initiative), and, SHINE (State-level Home Integration with Early Childhood Data Systems). (*Note: The SSI is a part of the CGLR. As seen in this link, a Feb. 2019, AZ presentation has the same opening slide as you see below.)
If you wish to see all the slides from the NC webinar, find them here (53 in all). Take an hour and listen to the Webinar in its entirety. If you live in any of the States in these 2 initiatives, you’ll find key information. If your State isn’t listed, be a step ahead of the agenda and learn what to watch for.
From my raw notes on the Webinar: a) Home visits will be the expansion of the data trails already in place. (In NC, those trails date back to 1990. The current data system dates back to 2015.) Current system is NCEIDS (NC Early Childhood Integrated Data System). The expansion will increase this to the single most powerful longitudinal source on our children. The ‘outcomes’ expected of the children will not be for their benefit, but the State’s. Combines Ed/HHS/Social Services. (In the home visits portion, ‘best practices’ will be part of the outcomes.)
b) Target ages: birth to 8 yrs (part of the NC vision: AllNC children, not simply public school children; will keep family and children in the center of all alignment)
c) Tied to the Reading Campaign: 60 data points are on reading. The expansion will encompass SEL (Social and Emotional Learning) and early intervention programs. The “whole child” approach is being used to expand the data trails. Ten goals and their sub-goals are divided in 3 ‘buckets’: i) healthy children/ ii) ready to succeed/ iii) safe and nurtured
d) The NC Governor ‘inspired’ Action Plan for our little ones:
e) Sources cited during the webinar (use these as pointers for where in your State similar plans may be found.) NC Early Childhood Foundation (web address is ‘buildthefoundation.org‘)
Related Resources: 1) Back in Jan. 2019, I shared with you some grave concerns about the abusiveness in the CCSS Machine’s plans for in home visits from across the nation. One of the States featured (MN) is finding that there is massive amounts of financial fraud associated with all this. MN is also one of the 5 States along with NC, working to expand the data tracking of our babies toward a workforce based life.
2) In February 2019, the follow-up to #1. More evidence from across the nation. Why the increase? Because as America becomes more global citizen based, our children are seen as not ours, but the State’s.
3) From April 2019, the plans to expand the Social Security Act (Medicaid funds are used in education from the SSA). Since fraud is already in place in education funding, think what throwing more money and power at us will do.
4) When the Preschool Development Grants were awarded in early 2019, I showed you where each of the States was going to find their funding. I showed you then, what ties to the CCSS Machine and globalism existed in the funding and planned use of them. NC citizens, this was the first taste of the pie the recent webinar focused upon.
5) From a couple of days ago, the ‘teaser’ articlewhere I first told you about SHINE.
Warriors, make NO mistake, this has little to do with reading sustainability or grade levels. This is largely one of the most back door ways to align our States from free ones to nanny managed ones. The future for our little learners is bleak, at best. Especially when you consider how easily and ‘slick’ the data tracking is being manipulated. “Cradle to Grave” is the fastest growing danger to us all.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, before you know it, we’ll be in June 2019. Summer thoughts may replace school plans. Depending on where you live and where you or your children go to school.
Before we break out the bug spray and sun screen, let’s look at a few items which we should use as encouragement to soldier on in our War Vs the Core. After all, the CCSS Machine will not be taking a summer 2019 break.
A) ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is still in place and hasn’t been repealed. It’s current status is being felt more and more every day. It’s future is also currently being considering for amending via individual bills in the 116th Congress.
B) We’re in election hype time. From now until the election in November 2020, to elect our President, and other leaders, we’ll be pelted with every kind of educratic BS possible. (If you missed my entire series on the Presidential candidates and their education plans, go here.)
C) With the 2020 Elections and the 116th Congress, the last federal education law to be re-authorized, the HEA (Higher Education Act) will see passage unless we fight it tooth and nail. If you missed the House and Senate bills which will amend or extend HEA, gohere.
D), Lastly, Warriors, with all of the above, the march towards globalism in education is firmly in place. How? The US’s continued ties to the United Nations (UN) and their SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
Warriors, those things, by themselves, are plenty of mayhem to push upon us. However, there’s even more.
Warriors, here are some of the other things on the educratic radar.
You may have seen these in May, or you may not have seen them:
1) ACLJ has reported that parents have filed lawsuits to block Buddhist meditations in schools. While this isn’t new news, the American Center for Liberty and Justice has been tracking the indoctrination and UN-backed shift of ‘mindfulness’ in the classroom. (*Note: ACLJ is also a proponent for ‘school choice’, but that’s a whole issue unto itself.) Back in 2018, I wrote for thePatriot Institutehow yoga was being used in classrooms for UN’s SDGs as well as SEL (social emotional learning). Warriors, as you know, yoga is used for ‘mindfulness’.
2) Salt Lake City’s gearing up for the UN’s 68th Civil Society meeting.
So, what’s new in May 2019 for this big SDG palooza?
The Mayor of Salt Lake City has an aggressive schedule to make the City 100% ‘green’ by the 2030 Olympics. Why? Salt Lake City is supposed to host the Games. She said they’ll be the ‘all renewable’ games. Warriors, if you are not sure how the Olympics fit into the United Nations, or the SDGs, you can read my research on it.
(*Note: Salt Lake City is also a top Resilient City by the Rockefeller Foundation as well as a “Smart City” to align to the UN’s SDGs. ‘Resilient Cities’ are hubs for SEL, social emotional learning. SEL also aligns to the SDGs.)
3) Speaking of the SDGs, did you know that earlier this month (May 2019) a New York City meeting took place to update progress in America to adhering to the UN’s master plan?
4) SDGs breed Global Citizens, Warriors. If you’ve read my blog from the beginning, you’ve seen how it’s been laid out and connected to the CCSS Machine. If you’re somewhat new to the blog, you are welcome to search my archives. During May (2019), my email inbox was filled with Participate Learning’s Global Citizen in the classroom resources. (*Note: Participate Learning was formerly known as VIF International Education. They are also a “B” Corporation. “B” Corporations are part of the CCSS Machine. These types of corporations thrive on social justice and competency based skills.)
What will Johnny and Suzy see in the classroom? The 10 Competencies they must master to become global change agents (just as the SDGs demand).
In essence, the House of Representatives is trying to fill the holes in the budgets for the U.S. Depts. of Labor/Health and Human Services/ and Education. The ‘holes’ which President Trump’s proposed FY 2020 Budget put in place.
Among the ‘holes’ to be refilled:
a) Funds for PreK and early childhood education alignment
b) Funds for K-adult education
c) Funds for medicaid and social security (these are tied to education as well)
d) Funds for a nation wide SEL initiative
e) Funds to increase workforce based education
Warriors, as you can see, mayhem via educratic BS is a constant for us. However, these five items are proving that the CCSS Machine has ‘stepped up’ its ‘game’.
Will we reject these disruptions to our freedoms? I sure hope so!
Warriors, I am sure by now you have heard the news the SAT will have a new “adversity score”. This doesn’t come as a surprise the CCCS machine is hard at work.
The last of Diva’s top 5 posts for this year is “Good Job Vs. Bad Job” gives us an overview of how some states are pushing the workforce training and lifelong learning UN plan. If you haven’t seen this post, it is a MUST SEE !

Good Job vs Bad Job
This in-depth article covers many States, but focuses on the same topic. Use it as a study guide.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, recently, I shared with you the news about the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) and it’s embedding of WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), and, the HEA (Higher Education Act).
Not new news, I know, but, what is new was how theWIOA Waiversare being used behind our backs to force MORE workforce ESSA mandated pieces upon us.
Regardless of our age, our ‘school choice’.
Think of it this way,
Let me pause here to say that I know we need to work, but so does the CCSS Machine. We know we used to have freedom to choose where we worked and how much education it took along the way, the CCSS Machine has changed the ‘game’ so that where you work and how long you are in school are locked in for life.
For the remainder of this article, I’ll share resources how this game changing move not only aligns with the United Nations’ plan for globally trained, barely educated citizens. It is also funneled into the US BY the UN and ‘do-good’ groups and/or powerful people who either know what they are doing OR are not aware of what they are supporting is harmful.
From NC, A ‘New’ Education Plan:
Warriors, just announced by the State Superintendent, Mark Johnson, NC will be the best place to learn/earn by 2030.
Before I tell you more of the #NC2030 Plan, inAugust 2018, I exposed the depth of Johnson’s lies about ending high stakes testing. It’s a shuck and jive move, for certain! Warriors, it plays right into this ‘new’ plan for workforce based aligned education. How? Here’s more from #NC2030:
From the announcement: “4-year-olds engaged in high-quality kindergarten readiness programs”
Also, from the Plan: “Students who, after graduation, are on track to their chosen, fulfilling career”
To see how Skills USA is a part of the CCSS Machine, that’s here. (Look for letter “E”)
To see NC’s obsession with CTE (Career Tech Education), look here. To see how cruel this is for our students, read this.
To see how the NC Teachers will fare in the NC 2030 Plan, read the rest of the Plan, here. Then contrast that with the supposedlyNC created teacher pay tier plan. Teachers, I posed some hard-hitting questions which involve personalized learning as a front for career tracking. ICYMI, I’ve included it.
To Iowa, We Go:
Warriors, do you remember the articles I’ve written about WorkKeys? That’s one of the pigeon-holing career assessments our students are being forced into taking. If they aren’t taking it in K-12th, they’ll find it in community colleges and job placement sites across the nation. Why I bring this up is toremind youof the chilling point made by one of the small business owners from GA used in the ‘sales pitch’. Basically his words were ‘no WorkKeys, no certificate; no certificate, no job; No job, not sorry.’ (Entirearticle which can be applied to all States) Arelated articlewill also tie to how the certificates are to rack and sort our students.
Warriors, add to that sales pitch, this from Iowa: A Senate bill which would punish you if you falsify your job application. While lying certainly isn’t acceptable, the one instance cited. Note, the man didn’t say he lied, he admitted he was underqualified. See below:
(Full article) Warriors, in the article introducing the Iowa Senate File 99, other State legislators chimed in on curtailing underqualified citizens. Yes, the issue seems to be catching those abusing the system, but the overall message is also not to be missed, especially when it involves Workforce Development Boards and unions. Why? These are all tied to the CCSS Machine’sone-way-to-learn-for-one-way-to-earn. Data privacy was also listed as a huge concern. It should be, especially when Workforce and Education are united in the career pigeon-holing.
***Warriors, read the Senate File 99, the tone set is one of State/employer as a lording ogre and the worker as a minion. This is definitely a pattern we need to watch elsewhere. The global workforce has a similar tone.***
Also mentioned in the 2nd article (screenshot above) is a non-profit group calledProject Iowa (PI).PI offers free career training for the underemployed and unemployed to bridge the gap so they may experience a life transformation. Helping fund PI is the United Way. United Way is in on the CCSS Machine’s global workforce train via the United Nations.
Another group, theAMOS (A Mid-Iowa Organizing Strategy) Initiative, helped get PI up and running. AMOS is largely a faith-based group, with one notable exception, the NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Ilness). NAMI is also tied to the CCSS Machine in SEL (Social Emotional Learning). SEL is a big tool in the career pigeon-holing seen in education. AMOS is an affiliate of Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF).IAFhas roots in TX as a community organized group seeking to influence infrastructure. In the shift fromacademics to career based/skill based, where does infrastructure show up the most? Technology and data mining. Infrastructure in education also means policy making. IAF is tied toAlliance Schools. The chief goal for Alliance Schools? Raised standardized test scores. If you’d like to see more information of how the TX based IAF has claimed victories in workforce alignment, go here.
If you’d like to see Iowa’s career shortage grants(KIBBE), read here. Look at the multi-million dollar price tag. (Yes, throwing money after agenda always is a success..not!) To see Sen. Carlin’s campaign (large union base) finances, lookhere. To see his stance on education, look below:
On To D.C.:
Warriors, did you know that there’s a House of Representatives Bill (HR 860) which expands Social Security? One sponsor and well over 200 co-sponsors. How this ties into this article: part of the expansion will go to ‘lifelong’ low-income workers. If you study the global UN/CCSS Machine workforce language, ‘lifelong’ is also used in defining education. Who would this impact? Look below at this example from NC. The ‘low skill’ workers is where you should focus.:
Warriors, you know, I have zero respect for our current Sec. of Education. Not that I respected any of the former leaders, but DeVos has proven repeatedly to undermine education (bad) all the while smiling and pointing to her donations (good). DeVos has proven she’s 100% on-board with the globalism shift from academics to workforce. She’s proven to be a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) disciple. Which is a huge portion of the workforce/career based education America’s drowning in. Her latest ‘do-good’ moment was reported byPolitico. (emphasis added is mine)
Warriors, if you’re curious how Mrs. DeVos ties to the SEL, here’s one where it involves the development of ‘moral’ assessments, and, one where her family literally profits off our student’s data rape.
If you’d like to see the KennedyInitiative, go here. Pay attention to the other international groups funding this for American students.To see the Children’s Scholarship Fund, go here.
UNAI, Humpty Dumpty, And You: If you’d like to learn more about the (HDI) Humpty Dumpty Institute (you may be surprised to know that the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” group fully supports HDI.), visit here.
Not only does HDI tie to our U.S. Congress, they are in 100% unity with the United Nations as an UNAI (United Nations Academic Impact) group. (*Note: Don’t forget the Thurman Marshall College Fund is also a key part of the HDI, as well as tied to the UN.)
What does UNAI do in America? Each group or school identified as a UNAI has a special project assigned to them annually. The projects? To implement the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) of the UNESCO/UN creation. UNAI schools/groups are located all over the world, but the US has a huge concentration of UNAI ‘hubs’.
Warriors, you’ll be interested to know that some celebrities are spokespeople for HDI. HDI also has strong ties to the LDS (Latter Day Saints) faith. To see the Gates Foundation grants to the Thurman Good College Fund, go here. To see the US federal agencies, corporations, and faith based groups HDI is in partnership with, visit here.
If you’d like to learn more about the UNAI groups, I’ve created a special Google Drive document for your use. (*Note: If you cannot access the Drive document, please let me know. I’ll be happy to send it to you. I’ll need a working email address to send it to.)
Share as you need to. It’s important to note that UNAI schools are an elite group and different from the UN/US Partner Schools.
Don’t get me wrong, ANY UN group infiltrating our schools is bad, it’s just the UNAI is even worse.
Where Love Is Indoctrination:
Warriors, if you are not familiar with who Jesse Lewis was, he was a victim of the Sandy Hook school shootings. Regardless of what you believe about the shootings, the bare facts are the CCSS Machine has used it as a back door to attack our 2nd Amendment; has skewed lesson plans and curriculum to promote a global agenda that tolerance will stop violence altogether, and more. Here on my blog, and elsewhere, many Warriors have proven these facts.
By the way, February is also consider CTE Month by our Vice President and many other groups. CTE ties to SEL, as well.
The Future For FL:
Gov. DeSantis has made plenty of news about “ending Common Core”, yet in the same breaths he plans to expand CTE and CCR (College/Career Readiness). The clues are all laid out in the language of his video captured speeches as well as the Executive Order issued.
Warriors, did you know DeSantis has had financial backing from the Koch Brothers as well as the DeVos family? With ties like this how can FL escape Common Core?
Recently (2/20/19) the Governor was a guest at the Economic Club of FL. Look at what DeSantis spoke of and how the Club is in full support:
To see how FL is really doing in CTE alignment, this 2013 document showed FL had added to the existing CTE Career Clusters (usually 16, but FL added ‘energy’ as the 17th) as well as had 3 different CTE standards streams and funding streams.
If anything DeSanits’s plan looks to streamline these 3 into one giant of an alignment system! (*Somewhat related, the fast-tracking career pathsin high school for FL.) Meanwhile the State Education Committee is ramping up the voucher plans to expand the fictitious ‘school choice’.
Contrast all this with the 2018 Review. Other concerns about FL and any other State thinking it can end Common Core, are addressed here. (*Note: if you cannot access this Google Drive document, let me know.)
Then, There’s Georgia:
Warriors, for those of you in GA or who have family in GA, I’d say keep your eyes out on the new Governor’s CCSS Machine agenda there. He fully supports tax credits and vouchers (a pay-as-you-go, data mining disaster the agenda fully ‘hungers’ for), his ESSA mandated programs (increased literacy, especially for the littlest learners; increase mental health programs in schools) are very troubling. The price tag for Gov. Kemp’s mental health in education is set at $8.4 million.
