For this last weekend in August, my fellow anti Fed Ed Warriors, I’m giving you a timely, yet, somewhat short video to use as a conversation starter for those in your circles of influence.
This past Friday (8/25) I hosted a Facebook ‘live’ video. It’s entire length was just under 40 minutes. I brought fellow Warriors up to speed on the articles which are being censored via Facebook. The hardest one ‘hit’? My researched exposure of ‘collectivism’ from the UN (United Nations) in our schools, as well as our lives.
You may be wondering why I chose a vintage political cartoon as the featured graphic. Because, my Warrior friends, the CCSS Machine is doing EXACTLY what you see in this cartoon.
If you’d like to start a conversation about the global-to-federal-to-local brand of workforce education disguised in ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), I have these tools:
First, the video link:
Secondly, a suitable ‘flyer’ has also been created to accompany the video and help you with any meetings.
Portions Of My Raw Notes:
From the 8/16/17 article titled “Live From the US”
1) You can see the CCSS Machine and UN agenda. You’ll also see how Hollywood and the 4 major US Networks are openly participating in the redesign of American education.
2) Because ESSA’s mandates include ‘lifelong learning’ (a phrase brought to the US from OECD and the United Nations, NOT US teachers/educators), expect more data mining than ever.
3) “Lifelong learning” was also a part of the CCSSI (Common Core State Standards Initiative). Leading up to ESSA, and, since its passage as law, it’s been ‘updated’ to ‘personalized learning’. This means a constant flow of teacher/student data. All geared for the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) where education meets global worker.
4) Due to the constant stream of data, expect more assessments. You’ll see more pressure to perform for both teachers AND students.
From the 8/19/17 article titled “Overt Education”
1) Those you share this with will be able to see the CCSS Machine’s CBE (Competency Based Education) push is, not American, but, again, global.
2) Three States (FL, NY, and NC) are featured as to how these global fingerprints are showing up in classrooms in ALL 50 States.
3) These ‘global fingerprints’ will lead you back to a similar model in Brazil (2009) as documented by the UN.
4) CBE is now codified in WIOA, HEA (and its current re-writing), STEM Act, and ESSA.
This creates another constant flow: ‘pipeline rigorous skilled based training’ NOT academic education. This ‘pipeline’ is for young to old Americans, NO EXCEPTIONS.
Due to this researched evidence, ‘school choice’, per ESSA is a total farce.*
*Not included in the video, but a truth, nonetheless. This will include the contested ‘ed savings accounts’. Another farce.
5) Your fellow Warriors involved in this conversation will also need to know the SEL (social emotional learning) woven so heavily throughout all federal education (and related legislation/policy) and CBE. Per the SDGs and the US created “Tool Kit”, education has been and will CONTINUE to be the change agent for justifying MORE SEL. This way a culture shift in America happens from WITHIN not outside forces.
From the 8/22/17 article (which Facebook removed from several groups) titled “When Me Means Collective”
1) This article uncovers the “WE Movement” where the grasp on education is only one of several projects to force a ‘collective US’, not necessarily a FREE US.
2) You’ll be able to trace one corporate CCSS Machine organization’s slow infiltration in education via ‘doing good’ projects in education.
3) Be sure to watch the embedded video where the description of a global citizen is expected to be the normal in America.
4) Since 2001, the global push for collectivism in American education has been ramped up. My research points to the CCSS Machine as the entity with blood on its hands.
From the 8/24/17 article titled “Seeing More in Education?”
1) This last article discussed in my almost 40 minute video will expose the assault on American teachers and students. Your guests will learn how ESSA has helped shift the burden of responsibility and accountability FROM the adult teachers and placed it squarely on the backs of students. Regardless of it the student is capable. (*This purposed shift will directly tie back to those ed savings accounts. Perfect opportunity for nanny-state-control. How? The money follows the student, NOT, the student’s parents or guardians. This truth is also not included, but definitely should fit right in.)
2) The grinding down of our teachers is frankly, criminal. This treatment of our students violates their freedoms and privacy.
3) Watch the C-Span 1995 hearing on how, even then, the DC leadership was being influenced to make global moves to transform how our kids learn. In the ESSA Era, wherever you see a legislator or educrat whining and moaning about the need for MORE computers (especially those” ‘1:1′ or 1 laptop/device for everyone’ ” ‘champions’), you’ll be able to see exactly where the roots came from. You’ll be able to see how they live on. (STEM, STEAM, and all that connects them to the CCSS Machine)
So, The Conversation’s Over, Now What?
By, now Warriors, you may be wondering how any of you in the room will finish this conversation. In my way of thinking and activism, I know exactly what SHOULD be done to properly close this meeting.
1) Don’t endorse what’s going on!
2) Repeat the truth, no matter how much you are ignored. Someone, somewhere is listening for YOUR voice.
3) Get involved in the national grassroots campaign to legally challenge ESSA.
I have! I firmly believe that so should every concerned taxpayer citizen in our nation.
What’s the name of this campaign? “Child Abuse in the Classroom: A Legal Challenge to ESSA”.
You can find out ALL the resources at the website, here.
The goal? The have DC really listen to We the People, to acknowledge the evidence, and to uphold the U.S. Constitution and related laws which govern the US.
The bottom line, Warriors, is we need as many grassroots Warriors as humanly possible. If you and your friends haven’t seen how dire the need is from this article, then I urge you to talk to the students and teachers who are living this nightmare daily.
The National Press Conference date is 9/20/17. To date: 3 locations, Indianapolis, IN; Austin, TX; and, Atlanta, GA. Sign up for the email alerts, see if your State has a leader. If not, jump in! If so, ask how you may be of help.
Warriors, we must be ready to stand to take on this legal challenge. If not, we’ll continue to see our nation be degraded and reduced to a UN human capital providing system.
