The G.C. Update

Why would an Anti Fed Ed Warrior need to be concerned with ‘G.C.’? What is ‘G.C.’?
Warriors, the zippy quick answer is ‘global citizen’. The ‘update’ portion surrounding G.Cs? That’s what this article will look into. Why am I abbreviating ‘global citizen’? To simply fly under the radar of social media censorship.

When We Last “Tuned” Into G.C. News:

Warriors, we discovered in February 2018, the Global Citizenship (a direct ‘attack’ on every nation’s individuality and culture by the U.N., United Nations) received a boost from the U.S. Congress via legislation to increase America’s involvement in all things global. Before we look at what’s up in March 2018, or being planned in the future, step back with me, into my archives to see the trail of evidence I’ve shared with you. Why would we need this now?

With the States continually being forced into complying with all ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) has in mandates, we will see the push for G.C.s increase. Especially among our youngest students, as well, as those ‘outside’ the traditional education choices.

The G.C. Trail:

We also learned back in July 2017, that the G20 (Group of 20) was using their related task force, the B20 (Business Group of 20) to align education toward global citizenship. The related festival surrounding the G20 featured many well known celebrities to push how wonderful it is that education is the best way to give us global citizens.

From the Fall of 2017, I showed you the Global Citizen scorecard America has. You also will be able to see which groups want to have your babies become global citizens more than American citizens.

A bit further back from my research (2016), we were able to find out how the U.N.’s Model Clubs are embedded in homeschooling. The intent? To help infiltrate this educational choice with not only U.N. philosophy, but global citizenship tools, as well.

To create G.C.s out of every American, young and old? What better tool to use than the Olympic Games (as well as the Special Olympics). The U.N.’s global agenda is well placed in this fashion.

The Common Core Machine loves to create minions to do its bidding.

G.C.s Now And In The Future:

Warriors, if you’ve not heard of the UNA (United Nations Association), then you will not know the United States is a member. The UNA-US office is based in Washington, D.C., but you can find groups all over the separate States. While the UNA is not new, look below at some of what is new:

We’ve known the CCSS Machine link to the U.N. was intentional, but did you know the CC Standards also link to a Matrix called “Global Competency”? From Page vii:

Warriors, if you are on Twitter, the UNA/US Group has an account. Use the #USAforUN. If you do not use Twitter, use their News and Publications page from the website. Below is the latest global focus in the USA:

How Did I Find The USA’s UN Association Website?

Warriors, I was able to find the UNA-US website by way of the WFUNA, which stands for World Federation of United Nations Associations. WFUNA wrapped up a winter 2018 Conference back in January. The theme?Mission Possible: International Agents of Change”. One of the key topics? Quality education for all. My fellow Warriors, education is SDG #4. (SDG is short for Sustainable Development Goal. The entire set of SDGs are UN created and US adhered to.)

wfuna

The Global Citizen Forum (2013) was founded by the same man who also formed the Smart Group (1980s). The Smart Group’s tag line, “One World, One Vision” and is steeped in Technocracy. The man? BK Modi. He’s even been cited by the U.S. Congress as a Humanitarian.
To access the Smart Group website, go here.
To access the Global Citizen Forum, that’s here.

From the Global Citizen Forum, comes something truly unnerving, a Global Legal Standard. Set up to equalize people, businesses, and more.

Related Information:

If you are not exactly sure of how Technocracy factors into the CCSS Machine, please read my articles where I’ve connected the truth that the ‘innovations’ via technology mean more than a super fast Internet connection. Above (the highlighted word ‘Technocracy’) has 2 of my articles. The earliest one I wrote was in 2014.) Much of the Technocratic political platform is socialistic in nature. Just think Communism.

You can also find lots of information from a fellow Warrior, Patrick Wood of Technocracy News and Trends.

The G.C. Website (the one to the lower left of the Stevie Wonder picture):

This Global Citizen group is not to be confused with the Global Citizen Forum (above).
This G.C. group is the one which hosted a festival outside the G20.

gcusanot1
Back in February 2018, Rihanna (celebrity) was a part of the Global Citizen’s efforts to raise billions of dollars for global education for all. (Ironic that a UN led effort for global education is named “Education for All”.) The US’s 2018 contribution to G.C., $375 million dollars.

Among the Board of Directors for G.C., you’ll find the Gates Foundation, Forbes, Huffington Post, and, others. The American groups in the CCSS Machine show up here, as they have been showing up for almost everything connected to education. Oh, and G.C.’s stance on education? Educate children to lead others out of poverty.

Closing:

Warriors, I hope you have been able to glean quite a bit you didn’t know before about the depth to which the CCSS Machine has sunken to indoctrinate all of us.

Who’s Watching?

Warriors, It’s becoming increasingly clear that the leaders in D.C. have gone as far away from the protections of our U.S. Constitution as humanly possible.
HR1313 is in the news right now, but what about BEFORE HR1313? What is HR1313?
(*Note: While I am not the first person to write about HR1313, I will be the first one to come at it from an anti CCSS viewpoint.)

Our Task:

From the title of this article (and hopefully the featured picture), you know this will be about data mining. But, my fellow Warriors, it will go beyond ‘just’ data mining…down to our very DNA. Our task, Warriors, is simply this: learn all we can from the researched facts and share it.

The Force Behind the Bill:

The Bill, HR1313, is known as “Preserving Employee Wellness Programs Act”. It’s sponsor is ‘our’ sold-out CCSS Machine member, Rep. Foxx from NC. Mrs. Foxx is the lead Chair of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Education and Workforce Committee. While Mrs. Foxx has claimed she isn’t a fan of CCSS, she sure does love its ‘alter ego’, CTE (Career Tech Education). While she’s claimed to not be a fan of the U.S. Dept. of Education, she sure doesn’t appear to have a problem with accessing their shared data.

Foxx, in case you didn’t know it, was key in helping get the 2014 Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) to become a federal law. Since CTE  is woven into WIOA at least 21 different times it’s easy to see WHY she has been quoted as saying ‘All education is Career Tech Education.’ 

(*Note: In researching WIOA, I found an alternative phrase used in the place of ‘Career Tech Education’; CP or ‘Career Pathways’.)

If you access the highlighted key’, or ‘all education…’ above, you’ll also learn that Foxx is a fan of ESSA. Needless to say, she ignored every single bit of voter/anti CCSS or anti Fed Ed contact urging her to vote ‘no’ on ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act).

What’s So Damning About HR1313?

First, Foxx’s ties to the CCSS Machine.
Second, the data mining will extend from the U.S. Dept. of Labor to the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Treasury.  What federal agencies AREN’T mentioned should be on our radars. They also share data with agencies mentioned. An example would be the data which flows freely between the HHR/Labor/Education. But, does the data pass between the Dept. of Ed and the Treasury? Look below:

edtreasure

We Need To Stay Diligent:

Another thing that should be on our anti Fed Ed Watch is the fact that the LADDER Act would create a NEW National Workforce Council where each of the federal agencies (picture below) would have more access to your data.
(*Note, they can access it now, but the Council would have even greater access.)

While HR1313 is geared towards those with jobs, we need to remember with the CCSS Machine’s shift TO a work-based education, it is all about the jobs and the economy, NOT education! So combine HR1313 with the Ladder Act and the control/data mining will increase at an insane rate!


ladder


More Troubles With HR1313:

The most troubling about HR1313, is the biometrics it will use. On Pages 1 and 2 of the Bill,  you’ll see the words ‘assessment’ and ‘biometrics’.

Warriors, I am not the biometrics expert on education. However, I find a connection to education via ‘biobanking’.  Microsoft’s data collection is linked to the Special Olympics. The Special Olympics uses ‘biobanking’. So does the Dept. of Health and Human Services through their sub-agency, the NIH (National Institutes of Health ). If you aren’t sure what ‘biobanking’ is, here is the definition from my previous article, “What is ‘biobanking’? It refers to banks where human tissue samples, their DNA, and other such personal items are stored.”

 Here’s the entire article: NIH data mining
************************************************************

According to this 2011 Biometrics Research Paper, the technology behind invading our privacy will increase, become more important, and..impossible to lose.

While HR1313 is targeting adults, let’s not forget that the CCSS Machine is a ‘seamless transistion’ intended for cradle to grave. So, what happens at the beginning, happens repeatedly.

What has already happened in data mining for our K-12 students, is happening with our adults. SLDS (Student Longitudinal Data System) and WQDI (Workforce Quality Data Initiative) take care of that. It’s happening with biometrics as well.

c) “What Is Common Core?” blog articles for CEP (Commission on Evidence Based Policy Making) which uses student data/biometrics.

If you are concerned about the amount of ‘research’ ESSA will meter out to your student or your family, read this. Be sure to look for the “Brain Initiative”. Since it’s a White House led program Obama started, will Trump extend it?

2) For Our Adults:
a) This 2016 Slate article is jam packed with evidence about the falsehoods of the incentive-driven wellness programs HR1313 wants to mandate. It points out how the government is pushing companies (never a good sign) to use wellness programs to save money, yet the truth appears to be while the healthy workers get a discount, the non-healthy absorb the costs to make up any differences. On paper, everyone wins. In reality, only a select few.
b) “Total Wellness’s” website published this article questioning how legal employer based wellness programs are. (*Note: Be sure to read the comments about real life experiences.)
c)
This 2013 Joint Concensus Journal explains biometrics and the need for them in the workplace. The evidence is based on the following definition, “The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines biometric screening as the measurement of physical characteristics such as height, weight, BMI, blood pressure, blood cholesterol, blood glucose, and aerobic fitness that can be taken at the worksite and used as part of a workplace health assessment to benchmark and evaluate changes in employee health status over time.” (*Note: Refer back to the NIH embedded article to see how the CDC is included in data mining.)
 d) COABE_stratg_broch_v4 From my 2015 article, this document gives the strategy for using research data (includes biometrics) to spread WIOA’s influence in your community. Note that the CCSS Machine member organization, McGraw-Hill underwrote the document.

Other warning signs about HR 1313 include:
Page 3, with its’ ‘Uniformity Across Federal Agencies’ clause.
Page 7, gets into family genetics and personal information your employer can access.
Page 8, ‘earn a reward’. The government’s idea of a bad joke?

Closing:

This last article shares that HR1313 is following political party lines. Rep. Foxx’s party, the Republicans, are ‘winning’ so far. Warriors, as we know the fight to save our students has become a fight to save our citizens. Why? Because, as has been pointed out, it’s no longer about education, it’s all about the jobs.

Going for the Golden Games

Ahh, the Summer of 2016. Anti CCSS Warriors, no doubt you will more than likely be watching the Summer Olympics from Brazil in about one month. In the past I exposed for you how the Special Olympics had not only gone Common Core aligned, but was using the Special Needs participants data for tracking purposes. (In case you missed that one, see: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/12/07/monday-musings-more-than-meets-the-eye/)

So, it should be NO surprise that the International Olympic Games be aligned to a global education agenda. Where there is global education agenda, there will be Common Core! (*Note: As the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) calls it, ‘college and career ready’/’challenging state academic standards’. No matter what name, it is ALL global education agenda driven!)
This in-depth article follows the agenda.

Where the Global Agenda for Educational Play/Sports Can Be Found:

Look no further than the WHO (World Health Organization). WHO is a part of the UN (United Nations). UN also has UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization). UNESCO has the global “Education for All” agenda. UNESCO and Bill Gates also signed an agreement in 2004 for a global curriculum. (See Berit Kjos’  publication, “Common Core: A Global Education”) UNESO also has IB (International Baccalaureate Schools). Those IB Schools have an extremely controversial altruistic helping write curriculum.
The IB Schools are among the educational institutions included in the ESSA.

Where the IOC (International Olympics Committee) is Taking Global Ed:

oed
In the screen shot above, notice the underlined sentence. ‘Sports as a possible source for inner improvement’.
While that doesn’t appear on the surface to be so aligned to global education, or even the CCSS agenda, think about how aligned to CCSS, sports already is!
Think about the mandates in the ESSA where personal learning, student achievement, and behavior interventions (among others) will use anything remotely connected to education to use it for alignment purposes. Consider all the other Warriors who have shown us the mental destruction CCSS is causing NOW.

None of this, of course will be talked about during the Olympics Games themselves. Everyone will be cheering, fawning over how great the Gold, Silver, and Bronze medalists did in their respective sports. No one will stop to think (at least for long), just how thin a veil of deception is being laid over the time in Brazil.

So, Warriors Against the Core, what can WE learn about the IOC’s Ed Program?! Let’s find out!
Website: https://www.olympic.org/olympic-values-and-education-program
According the Overview of the Program, sports is considered the ‘school of life’. Now, let me pause for just a moment..
Not 2 or 3 days ago I published an article about the “Readiness Redefined” National Campaign. Among the ‘readiness’ portions of education to be redefined? Life! (See: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2016/07/09/ready-or-not/)

Also according to the Overview, the Program interlinks with 21st Century Skills which are needed (not to mention also embedded in the WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), HEA (Higher Education Act), ESSA, STEM Act, and more). The IOC Ed Program is to be used inside and outside the classroom. ESSA has mandates for during school and after school student activities, supports, etc.

The basis for the Program is in the power of the Olympic Symbols. (I kid you not.)
Here is the excerpt, “Using the symbols of the Olympic Games, the themes of Olympism, and drawing on the lore of the ancient and modern Olympic Games, the programme aims to disseminate a values-based curriculum that will shape the development of child and youth character. Using the context of Olympic sports, participants are taught skills and strategies that will help them to assume the responsibilities of global citizenship and civic literacy.”

What’s worth noting is that the Program has a FREE toolkit for educators, community leaders, or anyone who wishes to use the educational lessons. The toolkit will be available for downloading soon, but in the meantime check out the information. See: https://www.olympic.org/olympic-values-and-education-program/about-the-toolkit

Other Olympic Education Initiatives:

Since 1988 (according to the IOC’s website), there has been a new educational outreach (aka: initiative) each Olympics. So far, there are 21 initiatives. For example the Initiative from Slovenia is called the Fair Play School. One of the main objectives? Teaching tolerant behavior through PE. See: https://www.olympic.org/slovenia-promoting-values-of-sport-and-olympism-fair-play-school
Over on the UNESCO website for Fair Play Schools (FPS) Initiative, it is called “Fair Play:  the Winning Way”.
See all the responsibilities involved in being a FPS: http://portal.unesco.org/education/en/ev.php-URL_ID=2223&URL_DO=DO_TOPIC&URL_SECTION=201.html

Warriors, did you know there is a United Nations Secretary on Sports for Development and Peace? The Coaches Guide (used all over the world) is full of kinds of ways to use sports as skill building for good citizenship. Download the GuideCoaches_Guide_english

If you would like to see the other Olympic Education Initiatives (some links work, some don’t), see: https://www.olympic.org/olympic-values-and-education-program/initiatives


Let’s face it, CCSS/Global aligned education will not be going into anyone’s decision when they buy into the Olympic marketing. Yet, the IOC redistributes those dollars to not only athletes, but sport organizations across the globe. See below:

iocmoney
Broadcasting rights in the US? NBC, a well known Common Core Supporter.
If you really want to follow the money trail for the Olympics, you can use this Marketing Fact Guide which tells the global partners for Rio 2016. (See Page 11. How many CCSS Machine member organizations do you see? I saw Toyota as an example. They are banner leaders in the adult version of CCSS: CTE (Career Tech Education). See: Olympic-Marketing-Fact-File-2016

Think of it this way, every time we purchase an Olympic postage stamp, T-shirt, or a product from the global partners, we are feeding the very CCSS Machine set on leveling education to a globally aligned one.

Oh, A Few Last Facts:

Brazil is considered a ‘Champion Country’ for UNESCO’s “Education for All” (that one world curriculum discussed earlier). To see all the accomplishments UNESCO is so proud of from Brazil, http://www.unesco.org/new/en/brasilia/education/education-for-all/

Contrast that with the 2015 Brazil Business Report about the problems of Brazil’s education, http://thebrazilbusiness.com/article/the-brazilian-educational-system

The Federal Government of Brazil regulates education. They regulate everything about education, both public AND private. See: http://www.brazil.org.za/brazil-education.html

The NASFA (National Association of State Facilities Administrators: Association of International Educators) here in the USA, has a file on Brazil’s education where you can see grading scales for certificates called “Leaving Certificate” when it comes to higher education. See: EDU Systems Brazil
If you do not know about NASFAhttp://www.nafsa.org/About_Us/About_NAFSA/

To see the Common Core NASFA News Release bombshell I found, look below:
nasfaglobal
The Press Release tells you how NASFA, the CCSSO (Council of Chief State School Officers) and Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (inTASC) partnered together to build off the 2011 CCSS for the new Global Education you see above.
https://www.nafsa.org/About_Us/About_NAFSA/Press/New_Standards_to_Integrate_Global_Education_into_PK-12_Teaching_Standards_and_Curriculum/

Closing:

Warriors, I hope you have learned much in this article. I know in researching, I did.
How can we fight this? So much already seems to much in place for us to defeat it.
As always, once you know, go..and tell others. Power is in the people’s hands to defeat more from our top-down educational system than we realize. Get involved. If you haven’t read the ESSA Proposed Regulations yet, do so! Provide feedback where you see the gross overreaches in these regulations. Refuse to support any part of the CCSS Machine you choose to..be it buying an Olympic t-shirt to boycotting McDonald’s. (One word though: the more who boycott the same place, the more impacting the message is). One huge factor of ESSA everyone seems to not know, or has glossed over. Congress can still reign in the U.S. Dept. of Ed!

Monday Musings: More than Meets the Eye

armchair
You won’t believe what I saw this weekend!

If you are fighting the data collection that accompanies the CCSS Machine’s overreach into our educational systems, its leaders, its students, then you will want to be sure to reach today’s “Monday Musings”.

As you may know (or maybe you didn’t know), I am a huge college football fan. As such, I try to take a little time off each Saturday afternoon to watch the games. On Saturday, Dec. 5th, I was doing just that when I noticed this one commercial from Microsoft appear. It didn’t appear just one or two times, it appeared several times (sorry, I didn’t get an exact count). At first, I basically ignored the commercial (after all, it is over 1 minute long). However, I began to notice the rhetoric in the advertisement was causing the anti CCSS Warrior in me to say, “Wait, what did that ad just reveal?”. I am including the ad below from You Tube, so you can watch it before we dive into the rest of this article.

Go back and listen for how many athletes are tracked data wise, listen again for what information about those athletes is tracked. If you didn’t catch it, these special needs kids’ health (which includes every aspect of their health) is not only being data mined/tracked, it is being used as part of their progress! Did you catch how the Microsoft Cloud can even look at their past performances?!

While Microsoft is supplying the data mining tool, did you notice it was the Special Olympics CEO who was speaking about the data tracking? Did you notice the ‘global’ vent in which she was speaking? If you would like to see the global agenda behind SO (Special Olympics), see:
http://www.specialolympics.org/uploadedFiles/Fact%20Sheet_SOI%20General%20Overview.pdf

SO and CCSS in the Schools:

Don’t get me wrong, I am not out to vilify SO. Rather, my point is to show you the ties back to CCSS, SO is participating in. For example, the SO school program “Get Into It” is funded by the U.S. Dept. of Education!
See (https://getintoit.specialolympics.org/) While you cannot access the lessons unless you are a registered member, the fine print tells you the school program fits state standards. Another school specific program SO has is called “Project Unify”, check out the pro CCSS groups tapped as the partners, “Partnerships with education organizations such as the NEA Foundation, The State Education Agency K-12 Service-Learning Network (SEANet), the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), National School Boards Association (NSBA), The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), the National Dropout Prevention Center (NDPC),the IDEA Partnership and many others.” (Source: http://www.specialolympics.org/uploadedFiles/Sections/What_We_Do/Project_Unify/Project%20UNIFY%20Toolkit.pdf)

Project Unify’s 2010 Case Study is another document you can easily find pro CCSS ties in. Be sure to see all 200 plus pages of this Study. You will learn much more about the SO’s support of the re-authorization of the ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Act) See the screen shot below:
SO21
Source: http://www.specialolympics.org/uploadedFiles/Sections/What_We_Do/Project_Unify/Project%20UNIFY%20Toolkit.pdf

SO and CCSS Outside the Classroom:

Among SO‘s sponsors is the AFT (American Federation of Teachers) who have shown their CCSS love all to well. Notice, also that a national organization representing school counselors is also a sponsor. What’s so CCSS friendly about school counselors? In case you missed my very special article detailing a White House led program to align all school counselors to CCSS, here it is:
https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2014/10/10/fridays-post-breaking-news-you-need-to-know/

As far as those pro CCSS organizations who partner with SO, you will find Bank of America, Unicef, Microsoft and others. To find them all, http://www.specialolympics.org/faqs.aspx (*Note, the Partners will be all the way down at the bottom of the page and you will need to click on the right hand arrow to see all of the partners.)

CCSS and Sports:

Sometime last year I wrote this CCSS Physical Education article. In I reveal for you just how much of our school’s PE programs are crossing over to the CCSS way of education. See: http://preventcommoncore.com/?p=1080 

Gates Foundation and the Kennedy Foundation:


As you may, or may not know, Eunice Kennedy Shriver was a key person in the history of SO. However, since her passing did you know the Foundation which bears her name has received Gates Foundation grants for the purpose of human scientific research? What does this have to do with the Microsoft Cloud commercial?
Let’s see if there is a connection.
First, consider that the Gates Foundation’s 2009 grant to the Shriver Foundation was for biomarkers to assess micronutrient exposure, status, and function/effect’ (see: http://www.gatesfoundation.org/How-We-Work/Quick-Links/Grants-Database/Grants/2009/09/OPP1003253)
While this may (or may not) in fact have been some of the ground work needed to help the Microsoft Cloud collect the type of human data featured in the commercial, I cannot prove beyond the shadow of a doubt.

 However,  it is very important to note here that Mrs. Shriver’s Foundation is a part of the NIH (National Institutes of Health) and that the NIH is part of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, the 3rd federal department helping the nation’s alignment to CCSS/CTE (Common Core State Standards and Career Tech Education). The others? The U.S. Dept. of Education and the U.S. Dept. of Labor!  What is very interesting is when I did a general term search on the NIH for “Common Core Standards”, I was led to a document where NIH‘s data mining, sharing, and “biobanking” are laid out. Access the document, pmi-working-group-report-20150917-2
What is ‘biobanking’? It refers to banks where human tissue samples, their DNA, and other such personal items are stored. While I was able to find a University of Helsinki/Microsoft Cloud agreement where it was stated that non public bio banking and genome data was not to be shared, it did NOT appear to prohibit public bio banks! See the screen shot below:

Closing:

Anti CCSS Warriors, please note that all the above information is given to help point out some of the sheer audaciousness the pro CCSS education reform agenda is becoming. It isn’t the first time we will see a wolf in sheep’s clothing ad, nor, will it be the last. However, if we don’t stop, take notice, and then, share information connected, we will be no more helpful than a screen door on a submarine! We must be diligent, even in our ‘down time’. Please, if you have more information about data mining, biobanking, how invasive the Cloud (no matter if it is Microsoft’s, Apple’s or some other company) is with regard to human information, or other connections which we can use to help shine the light; share what you know! We, as anti CCSS Warriors need every bit of teamwork we can muster.
