Inhabiting America’s Agenda

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in yesterday’s article, I showed you how the “Made in America” Week masks an aligned (preK to adult) workforce education agenda. In today’s follow-up, I’ll show you how, that very same agenda will impact your very housing and real estate markets.

While I can definitely prove this, here in NC, and almost literally, in my back yard, I’ll do what I can to show you where this type of activity is also cropping up across the nation.

First Up, NC’s “Inclusionary Zone”:

Warriors, in NC, there are 3 types of  ‘inclusionary zones’. The first type is the largest and is meant for those city or county government employees (including first year teachers). These are general inclusionary zones. Then, there are voluntary zones. These encourage workforce housing development and give incentives to the builders. Lastly, the third type is conditional inclusionary zoning. These pull in the voluntary zone parameters and incorporate some sort of comprehensive (future growth) city/county or State plan.
(*Note: the embedded link will take you to a Univ. of NC Primer and bring up issues connecting teachers and education to this type of housing.)

Then, There’s The City’s Inclusionary Zone:

inclusionzone

You’re seeing correctly Warriors. The very town I live in has a new inclusion zone. It’s supposed to be a great thing for the local economy, especially if your are a landlord. Here’s the article link.

Below, is a map I made for you to illustrate how close the workforce based education site is to the proposed workforce housing complex.

This Plan, is evidence that proves Ivanka’s visit to promote workforce education in Mooresville (2018) wasn’t a fluke.
On Page 199, of the One Mooresville, you’ll see the workforce housing zoning plans were approved in 2016.
(Mooresville is a ‘choice’ location for one of her father’s golf courses)

talbertroad

Other notes about the Plan are that sprinkled throughout its pages are other types of ‘sustainable’ living and working. Schools are a kingpin in this Plan as well. After all, I’ve shown you in the past how Mooresville’s playing right into the CCSS Machine’s plans. (Ex: President Obama chose here for his digital shift in education, which lives on in 2019 under President Trump.)

Then, there’s attracting and keeping talented workforce citizens; increasing P3s (public private partnerships); reducing vehicle use; increase digital dependence; transforming existing neighborhoods into cookie cutter ‘racked and stacked’ mini communities; directing city growth via ‘community services’ (one of which is to connect mental health to nature and green spaces) and schools (separate and unified); seeing an increase in charter and private schools; renovating existing public schools and building new ones, and continue to regionalize education. (see below, from Page 35):

Inclusionary Zones In America:

From 2018, I found a good article that puts IZs (inclusionary zones) in easy to understand terms. Be sure you read the “How It Works” section. Below is a screen shot from the article:

citylab
From the Inclusionary House website, here’s a screen shot of what you need to know that connects to the CCSS Machine:

IZhouse

According to a 2016 blog post from the World Bank, housing is the center point to SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). As we know, Warriors, the World Bank is heavily invested in America, is a member of the CCSS Machine, and, is a chief supporter of the UN’s SDGs. Below is a screen shot from the blog post:

IZWB

Warriors, you may be asking how this all connects back to the workforce housing apartments going up in Mooresville, NC? To answer that, I’ve provided you (below) with Page 169 from the One Mooresville Plan. (see the embedded link, earlier in this article)

mvilleresilient

While Mooresville is NOT Charlotte, it is close enough that what Charlotte does very much impacts what Mooresville does. By 2030. this entire area is to see a population growth of 47%. Our roads connect us, our data connects us, our educational demise connects us, so really, Warriors, it won’t be long before Mooresville becomes an annex of Charlotte’s city limits. This infograph will also show the expected job (skill based workforce included) growth will be for the entire Charlotte area.

One Last Point:

Warriors, if you still are seeing how IZs (Inclusionary Zones) fit the CCSS Machine, this 2015 article should help.

Supposedly, by creating IZs in your town, you’ll level the playing field when it comes to education. ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) devoted much language, programs, and, funds (aka: mandates) to doing just that: leveling the educational opportunities. This is where ‘school choice’ enters in. This concept of choice is great. What parent doesn’t want to choose the best school for Johnny and Suzy.

Yet, the reality of this is impossible. Thanks to ESSA. The funds attached to school choice (Ed Savings Accounts, education scholarships, vouchers, etc.) are nothing more than a data tracking device attached to your child and your family. It will track them from education to the workforce. Not only have I devoted much research and time to this stark truth, but Anita Hoge has as well. Her latest article even goes much deeper than my work, in showing you how school choice will destroy local government. (*Note: be sure to scroll down and read THE Charlotte Iserbyt comment.)

Closing:

Contact your Congress men and women and demand a “NO” vote to S 634. It’s a $5 billion dollar school choice/ed savings accounts disaster sponsored by Sen. Ted Cruz. So far, it’s only been introduced in the Senate.
DeVos is touring the US promoting this and was just in NC yesterday meeting with educrats in Raleigh. The tour is centered on freedom. The reality is these funding strings bring confinement and conformity, not freedom. These funds earmark us for workforce fodder to be fed to the CCSS Machine.

We don’t need, or want, community/education-workforce housing. We don’t want or need federal education. It’s unconstitutional AND illegal. We don’t want or need our tax dollars used against ourselves OR our children. 

“The HC Police”

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

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

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


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

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

S 406 also embeds 2 previous laws.

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

hcpolice
(Source)

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

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

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

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

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

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

cyberwork

(Source)

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

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

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

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

UNdatatrack

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

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

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

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

A Blast From Our Past:

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

1948

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

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

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

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

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

A Crystal Ball Future?

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

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

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

aied
(Original source, emphasis is mine)

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

ed2024

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


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

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

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

The Human Capital “Forecast”:

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

2009humancapital

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

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

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

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

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

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

lifelong

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

buyplan

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

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

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

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

Closing:

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

 

Educratic Semantics: “Competence”

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my last article, I showed you the at least 20 year old movement to ‘expand time’ in the name of ‘education’. If you read that article, you saw that the goal wasn’t a true academic advancement of oneself, it was more about a student/worker hurried up and churned out as a ‘competent’ skill based apprenticeship leading to a job.

slicedApple

However, what if I showed you, there’s a much more devious plan afoot?

Warriors, we once experienced history where Germany attempted to ‘rule the roost’. If you’re like me, you weren’t born then, so you didn’t live through those horrors.

Immediately after World War II, America was one of the 4 countries in control of the restructure. Many years later, the changes which were made, showed through in education. How? By way of the economic structure, the corporate structure, and, the government structure changes.

Yes, the US was involved in the German restructure by pushing for ‘democracy’. Since America’s a republic (by our Constitution), I wonder what would be different today, had the push been for a ‘republic’.

freeamericans

So, imagine, that in 2019, in America, some of those very Germanic restructured roots showed up. What would you do? What has OUR government done? What has OUR economy done for education? What has OUR corporate structure accomplished? 

********************************************************************
The educratic global shift we’ve seen is NOT the fault or total undoing of one country, it’s been a controlled and well financed group effort!

workedcycle
America’s ensnared in the alignment of education and workforce.

Enter the Word Game surrounding “Competence”:

Warriors, if you’re like me, every time you hear certain words, you cringe. Especially when you research items. You may also be like me, and see the larger picture looming in the background because you’ve seen so much. Case in point, “Competence”.

Germancompetency(Source for German/Latin roots)

****If you choose to access the German/Latin roots, you may need to use your internet tool for an English translation.*****

My fellow Warriors, you know how I’ve shown you, over the years, the word games used against us. I’m not assuming every educrat in DC or your State knows the watered down English version of ‘competency’; but knowing it has more to do with other things than true academics, do you see how it’s been used to further the agenda?!

liechalk

Look at it this way, ‘CBE, competency based education’: NOT ‘expert’ based education or ‘skill’ based, BUT ‘legally controlled and authoritatively carried out’ education!! 

English speaking countries may mean ‘skill based’, but NOT “expert based” or ‘legally/authority based’.
But, if the educrats did mean one version, and, assume you and I believe the other, then it’s the Latin meaning of ‘clashing’.

It’s also a ‘classic set up’, we’ve seen the CCSS Machine used repeatedly, you look one way, while I undermine the other way.

Three Blind Mice Clip Art N4 image in Vector cliparts category at pixy.org

So why, in the context of ‘competent’, would the German version be more accepted and in 2019?

****Because it is the closest to align with the UNESCO/OECD* plan for authoritatively controlled workforce based training NOT academic prowess!!****

(*Note: OECD is short for Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. UNESCO is short for the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization.)

2009humancapital

Warriors, why would it matter what the German usage and meaning of ‘competence’ really stands for? Because when it’s accepted as their nation sees it, it’s about a collective reflection of education interests of the society….not each student.

This is an approach DC has been taking for years. Especially since the Johnson Administration straight through to the Trump team. 

Come with me, Warriors, as I show you the German model America has heartily set us up to embrace without hesitation. (How much of the current system is based off Hitler’s? Read and find out.)

Vocational Education:

Warriors, Germany still calls education which trains you for a job or a trade as vocational education. Americans called it ‘vo tech’.

Some Americans, to this day, believe ‘vo tech’ is not only still an option, but should be taught. In 2006, that term ‘died’ and was replaced. (Yes, Warriors, another word game.)

That’s when our US government changed what the definition of ‘vocational education’ was. The ‘training’ portion was also redefined. How? The government funding!
However, even the CCSS Machine still uses ‘vo tech’ in America to confuse us!

voctegrave
Congress, at least, has finally stopped lying about how education is seen. Look below, this sentiment is readily spoken and shared by BOTH major political parties:

A German Commissioned Study:

Warriors, I found this undated (appears to be very recent, though) commissioned study by Bertelsmann Stiftung (an education based social change group. They heavily support a ‘school to work’* concept.) But, it’s WHERE I found it, you will be interested in. The American “National Career Pathways Network” website.
(*Something we’ve seen DC embed for years now.)

NCPNGer
(Source)

The German Study features an ‘expert’ from Germany who is considered the ‘go to’ guy on vocational tech training. His name is Professor Dr. Dieter Euler. He’s known across the world as the specialist for reforming vocational tech systems.

germanstudy
(Link to the complete Study)

Link to an abstract paper on the EC’s “Rethinking Education”

Some Of  The Study’s Points:

Warriors, I’ll share some of the most troubling points from the Study. I trust you can see the ways in which our nation, our government, and, our corporate overreaches have set the same shift up in American education. I encourage you to read the Study on your own.

1) The shift to work based learning (also called dual enrollment) should be the main focus of vocational tech/training. The main target? Citizens under 25 years old. (Page 14 has a brief history of combining education and work.)

2) Many countries are looking at the success of Germany’s system because it’s been spun as a ‘win/win’. Students get fast tracked education, employers get trained workers.

3) America’s not as developed in dual vocational tech, yet. But, the shift is being increased with ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) and its embedding of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), and HEA (Higher Education Act).

HEA is currently the last national US law to receive the ‘school to work’ makeover. Congress is dead set on increasing  the German based concepts. How? Increased CTE (Career Tech Education), which replaced ‘vo tech’, increasing apprenticeships and internships, increasing dual enrollment, and anything connecting them all.

page6ger

4) The 11 Vo-Tech Reform Components can best be accomplished in ‘incremented innovation’ programs and learning. The shift in education and work training is also metered out in ‘incremented segments’.

votech11

5) Other concerns include which government or business group is in charge of  exams for certificates and degrees. In Germany it is the Chamber of Commerce and Industry as well as the German Confederation of Skilled Crafts. You’ll find this laid out in Germany’s 2005 Vocational Tech Training Act (Sect. 1, Paragraph 3); Austria’s 2006 Vocational Tech Training Act modulized certain jobs (meaning the selected jobs were taught and trained for in modules, or fast tracked pathways).

Switzerland’s cantons are in charge of all vocational based exams. (In America, we are divided into States, Swiss has cantons.) Cantons have their own government set-up, but they cannot contradict the federal confederation.

In the Netherlands, they are receiving lots of global attention in vo-tech education. Why? Their 1996 Adult and Vocational Technical Training Act * merged education and labor into 2 training tracks. One was/is school based, the other is dual workforce training (or vocational tech training). *See Point 2.4. Notice the regional vo-tech training centers.

All the countries mentioned above are using national credentialing systems. Why? The ‘big essential’ is ‘real life conditions’ can best be experienced in dual vo-tech training, not necessarily education (you’ll see that referenced on Page 30.)

Not from the German Study, but definitely related is the 2012 “Roadmap to Vocational Education and Training (VET) Systems Around the World.

Warriors, every ONE  of these are things are either already in place in America, or the framework is being laid out!! How? College and Career Readiness via ESSA, WIOA, HEA, and more!

The screen shot below is from an old article of mine on apprenticeships in America, but notice the wrench and hammer symbol.

ccappre
Some of the companies here love CTE and Career Pathways. They also are unabashedly supportive of CC aligned citizens.



Study Warning Bells For Us:

1) By government and business ‘rule’ a ‘consensus principle’ will be put in place.
2) By government and business funding, education and training, especially for jobs will be ‘easier’. But at what cost of our freedoms will this be?
3) “Industry specific solidarity contributions”. What will these look like? Grants for apprenticeships!
4) A merger of economics, family, and youth via integrative vocational training (Norway has had this since the mid 90s).
5) A ‘flexible’ vocational education/training track for disadvantaged citizens.
6) “Quality standards” for vocational tech training and education mean laws, not scopes and sequences we’re used to.
7) Teachers and Trainers will have government controlled ‘hoops to jump through’. Their section begins on Page 52. Look for the “Ordinance on Trainer Aptitude”. Then, read what the UN (United Nations) has on this.
8) Class size changes will occur. Being done away with are the large, teacher led classes. What the shift to vo-tech training will produce (already in use in Denmark) is small ‘hubs’ or groups. These groups will spend 5 weeks at a time on one module, then switch to another. A large ‘completion logbook’ is kept on each person. This is their version of ‘personalized learning’.
9) Expect more ‘education research groups’ and ‘vocational analysis’. Germany’s model has been deemed so successful because all the reform is based off ‘in-depth’ research.

Professor Dr. Dieter Euler:

I was curious as to what other reforms this German ‘expert’ has been a part of.
Here’s what I found:
A) From 2006, A Swiss paper on ‘E-Learning’. A mandate for vocational training/education to be including in the SVC (Swiss Virtual Campus).
B) From 2010, Euler’s paper on developing and transitioning vocational technical training and demographics. He predicted a labor shortage by 2025. Below is the screen shot for the 2013 Journal/Report in appeared in.
youthjournal

C) In this undated McMillian Publishing proof, Euler was a contributor. So was the Aspen Institute. Euler’s topic was ‘Reflective Executives: A Realistic Goal for Modern Management Education’. A brief summary (Page 11) of Euler’s work reveals that ‘management education’ is more of a control tool, than it sounds.
Aspen Institute wrote on 2 different topics. One was on business and its relation to social and environmental issues, the other, “A Closer Look at Business Education: Sustainability in Curriculum”. This book was written exclusively for an audience of humanism followers. Warriors, it’s important to note that much of the UN’s overreach into education is rooted in humanism.

D) From 2013, The Routledge Companion to International Management Education had Euler write on “Reflective Leadership: A Vision for International Management Education”. As you can see (below) ‘international management education’ is tied to the UN’s design via the GRLI (Globally Responsible  Leadership Initiative). This screen shot is a bit hard to see, so be sure to go to the link above and read it there. When you read the GRLI and related information, you’ll see international managed education is NOT about training or educating people for managerial employment, it’s about controlling education altogether!

Closing:

Warriors, with the process for the HEA heating up before Sen. Lamar Alexander retires, we have got to inform our representatives and senators about what they are supporting and trying to further. We are America, not Germany 2.0!  We are free Americans, not UN led-by-the-nose citizens!

With all that you’ve learned in this article about the words being used against us, you know the UN/UNESCO/GRLI attempts to fast track apprenticeships (like Citizen Schools and the German model) will be lumped in under ‘lobbyists’ and ‘special interests’.

So, Where’s the Choice?

Warriors Against Fed Led Education, the image you see above was featured in one of my 2015 articles detailing the scam behind school choice. Since then, I’ve (along with others) have repeatedly sounded the call against ‘school choice’.

Why?

It wasn’t that we didn’t believe in the parents right to choose the education for their children. It was because we knew the CCSS Machine was erasing ALL choices in education but one: workforce geared, skill based Common Core (aka: College/Career Ready; Future Ready; Choice ReadyNext Gen Standards and Assessments; STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) as well as many other names for deceptive purposes).

Warriors, ESSA(Every Student Succeeds Act) stated in no uncertain terms that ALL education MUST be aligned to the SAME Standards! No exceptions.
The CCSS Machine’s deception is trying to still convince America that ‘choices’ are available in education.

The truthful reality is, no, true choice died when President Obama signed ESSA into law.
(*Note: in late 2016 and late 2017, I published two articles continuing to spotlight the deception with ‘school choices. You’ll find 2016’s, here; 2017’s, here.)

Enter: Penguins!

nochoiceWarriors, what you see above is a screen shot of the cute penguins used by the National School Choice Week organization.

Since 2011, this group has been doing a ‘bang up’ job of deceiving folks. Wait, why would I say ‘since 2011’? ESSA wasn’t a law then. You’re correct, ESSA wasn’t a law yet, but Common Core had taken over education in every choice available by 2011.

My fellow Warrior, Alice Linahan, published a scathing report (2017) on who is really behind the National School Choice Week organization.

What’s New For 2018?

Warriors, the penguins will be dancing (that’s what they do in the GIF on social media) into our areas the 21st-27th of January. Believe it or not, there’s even a dance for people to celebrate school choice. Of course, you can purchase the song and video.

Yes, nothing says let’s deceive folks quite like a catchy tune and some pumped up (fake) enthusiasm.

choicedance
Warriors, these folks may be dancing now, but what will they be doing when they see ESSA fully implemented and NO choice in education is still around? Remember, the way the law is laid out, everything is to be fully in place for ESSA by now. However, all States were to have their State Plans submitted to the U.S. Secretary of Education no later than Sept. 2017. If you’ll remember, there were 2 submission dates. Seventeen States chose the earlier 2017 date, while the majority waited until September. The point is, it’s mid-January 2018. Each State which chose the latter date AND received an ‘interim feedback’ letter from Sec. DeVos, is under a 120 day time crunch. The federal level department has to react to each State plan within that time frame.

For example, where I live (North Carolina) received its ‘interim feedback’ letter on Dec. 13, 2017. For all the things which US Ed required, the State had a mere 2 weeks (with Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa right in the middle of it all) to re-submit its Plan. The letter was sent by Jason Botel, not Betsy DeVos. It appears that all the Fall 2017 States also received a Dec. 2017 letter with Botel’s name attached. Since there are 34 States, I only checked a few States which surround NC and saw the pattern.

The State Plans are being held up due to the fact the feds do not think the States are compliant enough. Remember how it was deceptive spoken that ESSA would give the educational control BACK to the States?

What’s interesting is that supposedly Botel was released by the US Ed before Dec. 2017, so why is his name used as the signature?

Warriors, with this much backlog and confusion, ESSA’s fullest version and implementation will be taking place in the 2018-19 academic year. All this means is a longer and stronger grip on ‘locally controlled’ education by the federal government..not LESS and certainly not full of choices.

Closing:

Warriors, back in January 2017, I wrote about the lessons we should be learning from the (then) current state of federally controlled education. In the midst of that article was the reality of the school choice belonging to the parents and their heartfelt desires. Go back and read how that lesson has been trampled upon since ESSA, since the presidential election, since DeVos, and since organizations like National School Choice Week have been in ‘charge’.

With this January (2018) “Choice Week” about to launch, there is plenty we can do to protest, to expose the fallacies, and to protect our children from this massive deception.

fallacy

Also, when January 2018’s ‘Choice Week’ rolls around, watch for the CCSS Machine to roll out the red carpet of deception. Note who’s helping roll that carpet out, too.

Is There A Code For Alignment?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I know many of you will be getting ready for celebrating Thanksgiving, as I will be. However, before we all eat too much, I wanted to leave you with some things to ponder. 

You see a question in the article’s title. Look below and you’ll see another one to ponder.

code4life

Warriors, as we’ve seen time and time again from the CCSS Machine and its educratic overreaches that modern education is not about the academics, or even the true critical thinking; it’s about confining a student’s life to a predisposed track based on a workforce skills assessment. So imagine my non-surprise when I received an e-mail from the NC DPI (Dept. of Public Instruction)

nccompliant

Warriors, you really should see the rest of the education related compromises. While this IS a NC Legislative Budget supposedly for public education, it crosses the lines into private education and home education by using STEM, CTE, College and Career Promise, and more. In the academic year 2018-19, funds for the Coding Grant Program will double to $800,000.00.

What if you don’t live in NC? Well, Warriors, as we’ve learned from experience, when it’s connected to the CCSS Machine, it will be in ALL the States, Territories, and military bases contained within American power.

Lies From NC:

Warriors, below is a screen shot of an interactive NC DPI Career Pathway map. Here’s the link to the map. Be sure to refresh the page to find out whatever information you’d like most to see.

While NC’s not a PARCC State, I did find this evidence of the International Morse Code inserted into 4th Grade Common Core Standards.

 About Lumos:

Lumos is located in NJ. It’s also knee-deep in 21st Century skill based learning.

To see what I’ve previously shared (2015) with you about ACT’s Aspire, go here.
To see how Aspire is part of ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandates, go here.
Lumos Learning has quite a few resources where they help States with Title One funding, where they are sounding off about Pres. Trump’s impact on education, and more. Lumos Learning is a division of Lumos Information Services, LLC. I found plenty of YouTube videos for Lumos Information Services, LLC. I also tried to locate the CEO, the Board of Directors, and other related information, but very little success was had.

Back to NC’s Coding Grant Program:

NCcodegrantdoc

Warriors, what you see above is from the NC DPI’s document about the nuts and bolts behind the Coding Grant Program. Also in this document is that fact the entire Program gets off the ground in the Spring of 2018. The ‘winning schools’ will be judged on a 100 point scale as to how aligned their coding programs/partnerships are. Below, is just a portion of the judging (grading):

codedeceptionTo see the entire 9 page document: coding-and-mobile-app-grant-application

Warriors, this, of course brings about several questions.
1) What federal funds will these private coding partners receive, if any?
2) What State tax breaks will these coding partners receive?
3) What about any un-funded portions of the coding programs in schools. Will the taxpayers be expected to pick up the tab?
4) What happens if any of these schools are graded as failing?
5) What about the private schools and homeschool students utilizing NC DPI’s Virtual Public School or are involved in any early college/career programs?

Related Resources:
1) My article on the National Career Pathways Network.
2) My article from 2015 showing you CAPS from KS is still tied to the Career Pathways.
3) The ALA (American Library Assoc.) is giving $500,000.00 in coding grants. The sponsor? Google.
4) When I searched for ‘National Coding Grants’, the National Endowment of the Humanities surfaced. They sold out to the CCSS Machine long ago. Since the NEH receives federal funding, think about this: coding means technology, innovation, and, computers. Which translates to data. Data needs to be collected and studied. We also know how data collection has turned into a massive nightmare for our freedoms and privacy. We also know that the federal government is making bold steps (no matter how illegally based they are) to create MORE data mining. All this data will need deciphers. How awful it is that our students education will train them for such ill purposes. Sadly, the NEH is not alone when it comes to federally funded grants for coding or anything related.
5) When I searched for ‘STEM Coding Grants’, the first resource which popped up was the U.S. Dept. of Ed’s Office of Innovation and Improvement. Below is the screen shot of the interactive map for all the innovation (will include Race to the Top, and much more) from FY 2009 to FY 2017.

6) To access the “STEM 2026: A Vision” from the U.S. Dept. of Education, visit the highlighted phrase.
What you see is that coding is tied to Google, United Way, and more. You’ll see what student groups are being most targeted for coding.

That brings me to ponder something else. Since ESSA was supposedly going to break down education for equality, why is the federal government working with the CCSS Machine to discriminate against students using education as the weapon?

Warriors, we know Google is hardly the lone aligner in all this coding. We also know that all this coding is meant to confine citizens.

Closing:

Warriors, as I stated earlier, this is probably not the news you want to mull over during your family time. I do thank each of you for continuing to access my blog. I wish each of you a blessed time together. Look at what is going on in your State when it comes to coding or workforce based regional partners. Find out what is going on in your schools, or if your school is in the living room, look at what extra curricular activities involve anything related to any of the coding, apprenticeships, etc.

Near or far, I wish you and your family a wonderful week.
