Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’re closing out May 2019 with some updates on the SOSO(‘same ole same old’) educratic BS from the CCSS Machine.
In my last article, it was educratic BS in DC to ‘shut down’ the U.S. Dept. of Education by not really closing it, but scattering it like dust to the wind.
How so? Remember, that about the time DeVos was in Argentina with the G20 Education Summit, I showed you how the Y20 and L20 (Youth 20 and Labor 20) arms of the G20 (Group of 20 nations) had embedded the merging of education AND labor into one giant department? By ‘shutting’ U.S. Ed down, the merger would be one step closer to completion here in the U.S.
(*Note: the Y20 called the shift ‘innovation’. The GU (Generation Unlimited) calls the shift ‘quality education and training.)
How anyone in Congress thinks this type of innovation is getting rid of federal control of our education system is beyond me. How any citizen would choose to believe the SOSO, is also, beyond comprehension.
Self-Direction (AKA: Personalized Learning) is “Innovation”:
Warriors, we KNOWPL (Personalized Learning) is also a CCSS Machine farce. However, many parents are being deceived by State level leaders that self-directed learning is not only the best wave of innovation, it’s the best tool to guide their future.
The reality? Self-direction and personalized learning guide students (via massive data mining and algorithms) to a predestined track that a test/assessment lays out. NOT the personal choice of Johnny and/or Suzy.
So, if we KNOW this, how is the deception still being carried out?
The short answer: Global agenda in US legislation.
The longer answer: American parents and taxpayers are ignored and our freedoms muted.
Where will we find this deceptive agenda?
The short answer: All around us, especially in learning.
The longer answer: Hidden in our State’s plans at the federal government’s direction.
Warriors, let’s remember one key item about ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act):“Innovation” in learning, teaching, measuring (testing), was part of the entire goal in having the law passed.
Basically, our Congress ‘bet the farm’ against our kids by passing this. They also betrayed us, as parents and taxpayers.
What’s Your State “Innovating”:
Chillingly, our States are taking the federal Congressional cue to use innovation to usurp a student’s entire life. No longer is the concern academics, but now, using innovation to micromanage mental health. So much so, you have States begging leaders within their borders to misuse Medicaid funds.* (* More about that in a moment.)
Why would your State ‘play such a harlot’? Well, several reasons.
A) Because the States have to answer to their master, the federal government and the global agenda. (We must be ’21st Century Ready for the global community/economy, after all.)
B) Because the States have become addicted to so much funding, the sheer amounts have blurred the vision of those in charge. (If your State is like mine, simple improved management of funds would prove federal funds are not needed, as well as adhere our actions to the legality of the U.S. Constitution and federal laws prohibiting ANY form of federal overreach.)
C) Because the leaders are either fully aware of their deceptions or have become so jaded, they no longer care for WE the People. (Can’t line your pockets with good intentions and get re-elected, nope, got to succumb to the campaign corporate donors.) D) Because your student/child is no longer respected as a human, but rather, a return on investment. (Can anyone say ‘indentured servitude’?)
From PA, long time Anti Fed Ed Warrior, Anita Hoge’s latest article lays out the cold hearted moves this type of Medicaid misuse looks like in the classroom. Anita ties the federal overreaches right back into the global agenda found in the UN (United Nations) and groups like the G20.
From NC, where I live, the Innovation Project (TIP) encompasses virtual education as well as homeschooling families. Words fail to express the disgust I feel for this blatant overreach into our families.
Now, my dear followers and Warriors, think about how all this misuse geared toward our student’s thinking and behavior will make them much more pliable. The more conforming they are, the easier it is to pigeonhole (more tests determine this) them into what the government thinks education is, not what you, the parent or taxpayer needs education to be.
All Education IS…
Warriors, as if what’s above isn’t terrible enough, my fellow Warrior, Alex Newman,just published an article where none other than Betsy DeVos has declared that “all education is public education”. In his article, he ties this back to the G20 Agreement DeVos signed.
But, wait, Warriors, Rep. Foxx from NC has also declared what ‘all education’ is, too!
Wait, though, my followers..is all education charter schools? Back in 2018, I showed you how the U.S. Dept. of Education was using the global workforce agenda (which CTE breeds) as an excuse to use charters to increase the levels of CTE and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) in education.
In 2018, the comparison between the US idea of what ‘education’ should be and what the UN expects education to be. Warriors, this will impact the re-authorization of the HEA (Higher Education Act).
What does President Trump think ‘all education’ is? Apprenticeship based (CTE and STEM)!
Warriors, I’m sure about you, but all this ‘innovation’is not helpful for our nation. We are seeing everyone BUT teachers define what ‘education’ is or isn’t. We see our students facing a future that, frankly, a strait-jacket laced one. Be sure to look at the ‘innovation’ link directly above. It’s for a conference held in the past few months. It’s all about innovation in education. Once you’ve looked, contact your leaders in your State. Give them an earful!
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, as we begin our last week of Feb. 2019, let’s look a bit deeper into the UNAI (United Nations Academic Impact). I first revealed this group, last week, in my post about “Good Job Vs Bad Job”.
As I stated in that article, the ‘academic impact’ is an elite project to usher in the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) all over America. The UN also has many partnerships with academic institutions all over America. These “Partner Schools” have ongoing UN agenda items to complete, including the SDGs.
(In theoriginal article I featured this picture in, it was to illustrate how embedded the United States already is, as far as the UN/UNESCO SDGs. We’ve not slowed down since then, either.)
Warriors, also in that original article I was expressing concern over President Trump’s support for the UN. That concern should be ever before us, as a nation, as long as ANY federal leader continues to support the United Nations. It’s an anti-USA organization!
ICYMI: Early Feb. 2019, the Presidential proof of his support for STEM and U.S. Congressional STEM legislation.
Now, we’ll look at the latest person to be nominated as the US Ambassador to the UN, near the end of this article. First, I’d like to share a couple of ‘extra special’UNAI groups.
The Foundation For Post Conflict Development: Website:https://postconflictdev.org/ Headquartered in New York City, NY (*Note: a large portion of the UNAI groups are based in NY), this group conducts a large amount of ‘business’ around the world. Below is a screen shot from the Post Conflict Foundation. I’ve contrasted it withU.S. Senate Bill 116.
While this UNAI group is headquartered in NY, it appears almost no American activity is taking place.
Will that change, as similar as S 116 is, to the overall mission of the Foundation for Post Conflict Development?
We’ll need to see. Since the Foundation is so devoted to the SDGs, we know that’s a definite tie to America. How? America’s totally on board with the SDGs.
One last note about this Foundation, an exclusive on-line education portalis in theworks. The portal will be accessible to the US. The focus ? Peaceful resolutions. In American education, that translates to SEL (Social Emotional Learning) components.
Below, an older screen shot (2018) from my blog showing the many different ways SEL is embedded in ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). ESSA will tie to S 116, if made into law.
World Engagement Institute (WEI): Website:http://www.weinstitute.org/ Headquartered in Chicago, IL, this Institute is an INGO (International Non-Government Organization). As such, it’s an IL based non-profit group.
********************************************************************************* Warriors, before we look at what WEI does, let’s take a moment to understand what an INGO is.
We’ve known for quite some time the supposed importance of NGOs (non-government organizations) in America. In education, they’ve been part of the massive overreaches.
Across the globe, other countries have used these groups as well. However, with the UN/UNESCO driven shift to one-world-everything, this is where an INGO enters. NGOs are proving to be useless and dated in the modern era of world-wide finance and technology. International non government organizations are the answer. I kid you not.
The ‘perfect’set up for INGOs? Eliminating poverty (which is the SDG #1 platform). Considering the amount of money being used by the CCSS Machine to insert the SDGs into education, this means INGOs will have impact in your communities via social impact bonds and much more. Now, keep this in your mind as you see what WEI does, below (added emphasis is mine): *********************************************************************
As far as the ‘academic’ ties of WEI, they include the NWEA (North West Evaluation Association), a well known CCSS Machine member, the USAID (a federal government arm which is very much a part of the CCSS Machine), and, the UN’s Academic Impact (UNAI). To see the many UN affiliations WEI has, go here. To see the academic partners of WEI (where you’ll find NWEA, Boston College, and others), go here. (*Note: Boston College is a CCSS Machine member, especially for special needs.)
Kinda Sorta IL, But UN/UNESCO’s STEM:
Warriors, we’ve all seen those annoying Facebook ads, right? Well, in the last 2 weeks I received one about “Early STEM Exposure Through Career Focused PBLs (Project Based Learning)”. The blurb included a description of the ability to transform traditional K-12 classrooms to PBLs. The purpose? Exposure to STEM concepts/careers as early as kindergarten via Defined STEM.
The organization hosting the ‘early STEM‘? Defined Learning, LLC. Defined STEM is a portion ofDefined Learning, based in IL.
(Source for the 2014 EdTech Times interview. Be sure to read it. Teachers are thrown under the bus.)
If you’d like to learn about the Defined STEM PBLs, go here. If you doubt PBLs are CCSS, or that CCSS and STEM are connected, look below, then read this.
As you know, Warriors, STEM is the chief tool of choice (of the UN’s) to use against the US to infiltrate the SDGs as change agents in education.
Why change America? Ah, that’s the $64 million dollar question..with a free researched answer. The purpose is to mind-numb Americans for a 100% global citizenship agenda. As you read, starting as young as kindergarten.
I’ve written previously (2015) on the federal level STEM push for PreK and K. Believe it or not, it tied to the American Import/Export law. What you see below, is from that 2015 article.
Meet President Trump’s New UN Ambassador From The US:
Warriors, the Washington Post recently announced that Kelly Knight Craft has been chosen by President Trump to be the newest UN Ambassador for the United States.
Her connections to the global agenda: Former President George Bush (#43)
(*Note: It was President Bush (#41) who sold us out to the globalization of the New World Order, #43 extended that, as has every President between them and since them.)
Her connections to President Trump: mega dollar campaign donation and a 2017 nod for US Ambassador to Canada.
Her connections to Sen. Rubio (FL), campaign donations. Rubio’s connection to STEM? Current DC Legislation and previous ties to the CCSS Machine.
***So, Warriors, should we be concerned how much globalization Craft will bring American education? I believe so. My thanks to Alison McDowell, who helped provide the following leads.
1) Craft’s hometown of Glasgow, KY is near the Strive Together/Lumina‘cradle to grave’ hub.
2) Craft can be tied to her local Chamber of Commerce, KY’s Chamber of Commerce, VP Mike Pence ( a huge CTE, Career Tech Education supporter), and Gov. Matt Bevin. What’s troubling about Bevin is he reportedly was againstCommon Core, but has fully embracedSTEM. (*Note: back in 2015, the KY Governor intended to rid KY of CC. Yet, in 2019, it’s firmly in place.) Want a disturbing look at Bevin’s priorities (where you’ll find a big ‘shout out for making KY an ‘epicenter’ for parts of STEM, as well as workforce based education)? Visit his website.
4) Wilhoit was influential in getting Gates to fund Common Core while he was with the CCSSO, Council of Chief State School Officers. Kentuckians Against Common Core revealed this back in 2014. You can probably tie Pence and Wilhoit together by their IN time in office.
5) KY is in the grasp of the SREB (Southern Regional Education Board). A recent SREB report on KY was almost exclusively ‘cradle to grave’ career alignment fodder.
Northern KY is a U.S. Chamber of Commerce “Talent Pipeline” hub. (*Note: As we know Gates funded the U.S. Chamber for coercing States to increase CTE (Career Tech Education), CCSS (Common Core State Standards), and by association, STEM.)
6) During her time in Canada, Craft claimed she supported both sides of the ‘climate science’ issue. Climate science is a big part of STEM and the UN in education.
Warriors, look at the picture above, then look back at the Defined STEM picture..imagine your babies being matched in Kindergarten for their lifelong job/learning.
It’s not a fantasy, it’s a stark reality. STEM impacts EVERY school choice, including homeschools. ESSA increased the amount of STEM for ‘every student to succeed’. What’s worse? Your States will use this to introduce bonds (to fund education/or build new schools), legislation, or form more P3s (public private partnerships) to pull all the UN led indoctrination off! What would that look like?
In 2016, I showed you how NC did this..and all on the taxpayers’ backs. The lesson to learn is that with 2020 elections in our near future, these are weapons of mass educational demise which will be used against all of us in the US.
(*Author’s note: the featured image is courtesy of The Cirdan Group’s blog.) *****************************************************
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we know, no matter when Congress is in session, bills getting passed is a distinct possibility. Even when the sun’s setting on the 115th Session.
We saw this happen with ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) back in 2015.
Fast forward to 2018 and a seemingly unrelated Bill (HR2) has passed Congress and appears to be heading straight to President Trump’s desk for his signature into law. HR 2 is a whopping $876 billion dollar boondoggle.
So, Warriors, how does education fit into HR 2 (The Agriculture Act of 2018)? I’ll show you. Just keep in mind that within the HR 2 Committee Report (which often accompanies large bills in Congress), education is referred to 741 times in the 1,483 pages. The actual HR 2 is 1,242 pages. Education is embedded 218 times.
********************************************* *Note: I have found if you cannot find a specific item in the actual bill (or you don’t quite understand the language of the bill) those Committee Reports will explain in better detail what you’re not sure about or isn’t clear.
Think of it this way, you’re writing a cookbook (the bill) and your version of grandma’s recipe left out a step, her original recipe (the committee’s report) contains that missing step.
********************************************* Warriors, as far as the ‘magic beans’ for education, HR 2 will have the same type of beans as ESSA, WIOA, HEA, the STEM Act, and all those other laws which tie U.S. Dept. of Education to the U.S. Dept. of Labor; U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, and all the other federal agencies, programs, P3s (public private partnerships) together.
What’s that? Conformity to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) which in turn conform the US to the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). The ‘magic beans’ also will conform education to workforce development yet again, just like WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) and ESSA.
Below is an older screen shot I made of HR 5587. HR 5587 was from the 114th Session of Congress and re-introduced in the 115th as HR 2353(signed into law earlier this year). HR 2353 ramped up the CTE (Career Tech Education) arm of the CCSS Machine at a federal level.
However, adding to what’s in place via HR 2353, the current HR 2 will further strengthen the ties between ED and AG. Thus, strengthening the federal chokehold on education.
*Note: Sadly, though, HR 2 also ties into the SDGs by setting up massive amounts of land grabbing (eminent domain) by the feds.
HR2’s Education “Plan”, Part One:
Of these items, each is already in place, but the tie to HR 2 will make the ties even more solid. 1) more STEM via bioagriculture education. STEM is embedded in WIOA, HEA, and ESSA, too.
2) Since HR 2 also includes SNAP benefits (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) for low-income families. SNAP funds are embedded in ESSA, too. Using schools as ‘hubs’, especially for food ties right back to the ESSA 21st Century Community Learning Centers and wrap around services. These very services (which also include health care, mental health services, and more) are part of the plan laid out for community control via the SDGs.
3) “Nutrition education”. Have you seen the nationalized nutrition standards being taught in schools? Back in Sept. 2018, Utahns Against Common Core helped expose the IL based organization behind the National Food Education Standards directly aligned to Common Core. Why? Those same Standards are being used across the nation..already! The Standards push using MyPlate (the USDA’s idea of proper nutrition) as well as using students as ‘agents of change’. A sample lesson for the Standards (K-12) have SEL (social emotional learning) as the #1 activity.
Notice, below, how the children are being used to advise the parents. (Warriors, what other issues have we seen the CCSS Machine use children against their parents?)
1) Infrastructure changes (as in internet access for rural areas), start at Page 583, then read who will get priority for infrastructure changes. Then be sure to note where it directly cites the ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act as amended by ESSA). The federal government is expanding this effort to help increase the digital ‘ecosystem’. (I found that near Page 628) My previous research on thisinvasion of privacy, as laid out in ESSA.
2) Community grants, especially for health and safety programs (will include substance abuse; which means more SEL), P3s (public private partnerships), rural business co-ops will involve higher education institutes, especially in regards to Native Americans.
3) Research grants for agri-science (including support for wheat diseases)
4) Funds for hybrid learning, especially in higher education; food safety education initiatives
5) Urban farming, education, and, research
6) Data mining
7) Grants for youth organizations (look for an increase in apprenticeships, CTE courses, etc. for agriculture, bio-science, etc.
8) “Equity in Educational Land-Grant Status Act of 1994”
9) Funds for bio-diesel and carbon utilization education
10) Funds for Native Americans and food
11) Amending the Nutrition Education State Plans (students will be measured, evaluated, and electronically reported on)
You’ll also want to read Section 4115 (begins Page 369), for each State’s Plan to be followed for emergency food allocation, as well as the P3s and other stakeholders to be involved.
Beginning on Page 379 (Section 4304), is a section which should cause great interest: “Harvesting Health Pilot Programs” Take a non-profit, add in a health care provider, a prescription, and a low-income person who suffers (or is ‘at risk of developing’) from a diet related health issue. Among the pilots is the “Produce Prescription Program” and will include education as part of the pilot program/prescription. As part of the pilot, a MOU (memo of understanding) is involved.
Warriors, do you see WHY this should raise interest?! The federal government overstepping into your food choices, your health care, AND your education in ONEpilot program! We DO NOT need a nanny-state government!
From Page 616 and 617, this pompous federal government quote:
Warriors, 26 federal agencies and federal offices (including the U.S. Dept. of Education) are among the Council members. This doesn’t include any of the others designated by the any of the 26. See Pages 617 and 618. Talk about a federal expansion of government!!!
Beginning on Page 638 and carried over on Page 639, HR 2 amends the National Agricultural Research, Extension, and Teaching Policy Act of 1977 to include ‘international collaboration that leverages resources…’Warriors, do you see what this means? ‘Leverage’ in a government’s hands is NEVER in favor of We the People! There are several other amending clauses to the 1977 law, in most of the ones I saw, all this is extended to the year 2023. Also, associated with the amendments are competitive grants for international ag and science based programs. You’ll be interested that the authority of the Secretary (Agriculture’s) gets an increase in promoting international partnerships. Remember, Warriors, these partnerships impact our food.
Warriors, much like S1177 (Every Student Succeeds Act) was foisted upon us in December 2015 and was an omnibus bill, HR 2 is proving to be very similar.
There are even more educratic expansions, mandates, and whopping tax dollars to make it all happen; at our expense which I didn’t even touch on. Read the Bill, now what’s coming up, especially in you are in a rural setting!
I’m sure the CCSS Machine, the federal government, and the U.N. are thrilled over HR 2 passing almost every hurdle. It’s their ‘magic bean’. I’m sure they envision a magic beanstalk. From an education research stance, I see a giant of a problem with all this.
A giant we need to slay.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, with all the attention being focused on the DC circus-like behavior, did you know the U.S. House passed a Bill late last week? This Bill (HR 6757) is a thief dressed as taxpayer savings. The thief is headed straight for the schools and our homes, too.
PA Rep. Mike Kelly introducedHR 6757in early September 2018. As of the end of September, it’s heading for the U.S. Senate. Fast tracked Bills mean the CCSS Machine is up to something, Warriors.
The House voted 240-177 in favor of this Bill. Currently, HR 6757 is in the Finance Committee of the Senate.
Warriors, the bottom line surrounding HR 6757 is this: Expansion of government to create the ‘end’ of school choice discrimination. How? By messing with our taxpayer dollars. (*Note: Jeb Bush, a huge CCSS Machine member has been pushing ESAs, education savings accounts for quite a while. So has Sen. Lamar Alexander. Sen. Alexander was also one of the major Congress members who promised America that ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act, would give education back to the States. He lied about that, Warriors, he’s lying about ESAs, too. Lastly, Heritage Foundation and Sen. Alexander have a connection. Heritage is in full support of ESAs under the illusion of ‘school choice’.)
HR 6757 seeks to amend the Internal Revenue Code from 1986, too. Supposedly, if enacted, it will save families TONS of money (The Bill is called the Family Savings Act).
Warriors, you may well remember that the 1980s brought us President Reagan. Reagan chose Charlotte Iserbyt to help end the U.S. Dept. of Education. She was fired instead. Mrs. Iserbyt has been warning us since the 1980s about the globalization of American education; how education savings accounts will be used as tax schemes to turn schools into workforce prep institutions.
What is CongressREALLY setting us up for with bills like HR 6757, Warriors? Look below:
Our current President (Trump) and Vice President (Pence) even used school choice and vouchers as part of their plan upon coming into Office. President Obama was big on ‘choice’ and the expansion of charters.
From 2017, Freedom Project Media’s 3rd video in their series called “Alternative Education in the Crosshairs”. This segment laid out the illusion of school choice and ESAs. If you’d like to view the other 3 segments, here’s my article featuring them.
But, Wait…The Media Said HR 6757 Is Good:
Warriors, very few major media outlets reported on HR 6757’s passage by the House. The spin was sunshine and roses, too. PR Newswireshared the Family Research Council’s article about how applause-worthy HR 6757 is.
Warriors, not to discredit FRC, but the ties to the U.S. Sec. of Education DeVos and her family arewoventhroughout this Christian based Council.
Let’s also raise THIS question: If we’re going to start education savings for unborn children, when will the control of their education and/or taxation of them begin?
Breibart Newsalso shared the news, although not quite as cheerful as the FRC’s.
Warriors, we’ve seen the huge controversy unborn children involve. Do we really need to throw education into the mix, too?! Are we so addicted to seeing DC play with fire (so to speak) in relation with our children that we’d actually be alright with HR 6575? I would hope not!
From TaxFoundation.org’s website, thenewsabout HR 6757 is not only welcome, it ties to other D.C. Legislation which impacts not only taxes, but our freedom. The article I’ve included gives you a good basic understanding of the new Universal Savings Accounts.
What these USAs (Universal Savings Accounts) can achieve sounds great. However, Warriors, similar systems are already in place inCanadaand theUnited Kingdom. The U.S. House of Representatives’s Bill HR 937 (Universal Savings Account Act) is sponsored byRep. Bratfrom VA. Over in the Senate, Sen Flake from AZ, introduced S 2320 for USAs.
The most disturbing part? The language of these types of accounts has the government in the driver’s seat and will ‘allow’ you to open savings accounts! If we’re putting the government in charge of our savings AND education, where will our freedoms stand?!
Look To The HR 6757 Committee Report:
Warriors, don’t simply stop at the language of HR 6757. Like the FY 2019 Appropriations Bills, The Family Savings Act has a Committee Report. If we’re going to better understand the strings this updated IRS Code will have, it will be here. While HR 6757 is a mere 98 pages, theCommittee Reportis well over 300 pages.
Title 3 of HR 6757 is where you’ll find the USAs, the Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) and more. However, remember, that in Congressional legislation, each part or title of a bill builds off the other titles. So, don’t simply skip to Title 3, look at Titles 1 and 2, first. Then, look beyond Title 3 for more strings.
I urge you to look on your own in the Committee Report for HR 6757. You’ll find that ‘education’ is embedded 120 times. You’ll read that these tax changes will begin AFTER Dec. 31, 2018 and extend to all the years beyond then. (*Note: you’ll see the initials JCT, this is short for Joint Committee on Taxation.)
Below are just a few of the CCSS Machine moves HR 6575 will bring to fruition: a) play upon the DC ledexpansionof registered apprenticeships (will tie to CTE, Career Tech Education, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math), College and Career Readiness (CCR), andmore. b) assimilates homeschooling families and pays special attention todual enrollment c) Page 20: education loan repayments d) Page 44: tax sheltered annuities and education e) Page 71: tax advantaged savings and education for the disabled (*Note: also on Page 71, you’ll see the clear definition of 529 College Savings Plans. They are the government’s, not yours. You’ll also see Coverdell Accounts. Look especially to the section called “Reasons for Change”. This will explain WHYCongress wants to change the tax codes.) f) Page 73: The blow by blow account for expanded 529 programs g) Page 75: More “Reasons for Change”. From my ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) research, this is a blatant grab on homeschoolers across America. Also on Page 75, direct ties to the National Apprenticeship Act. What 529 changes will occur (costs associated with apprenticeships, especially in higher education; home education expenses; and, qualified education loans spread out over your lifetime.)
Warriors, we know there have been Bills amending IRS tax codes before. Their purpose? To act as a back door to overtaking education. Back in 2017, I showed you howS 1193 and HR 2865were proposed to amend taxes for P3s in education. These ‘sisters’ would allow for businesses to control education. (*Note: look for items #3 and 4 in the linked article above.)
If you’d like to see Forbes’ take on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and how it may impact our unborn children, readthis.
Warriors, because there is no real school choice in ESSA and because our tax codes are shifting to reflect globalism, we know education has followed suit. How? Collectivism!
Lastly, my fellow Warriors, if you think of ESAs as a ‘pay for success’scheme (which they are being spun this way for Native Americans), you’ll get a shock. We need this type of ‘wake up’ call.
Warriors, we knew the CCSS Machine’s grasp on education was HUGE. We knew ESSA and the mandates would level school choice (remember, those 529 Savings Programs and Vouchers were supposed to give more choice, but it’s an illusion we cannot afford to buy into).
We knew Congress overreached into education. But this? This isn’t so much about education. It’s about top-down control..of our money, how we spend it, where we save it. It’s about limiting YOUR voice in your own life..and the lives of your children! This isn’t about academics, it’s about a boosted economy (part of why we have income and taxes). It’s about being shackled for a lifetime of servitude. This IS not OUR AMERICA!
Will you stand up against this tyranny? Our government is stealing us blind. We MUST fight back.
To My Anti Fed Ed Warriors, it’s been SUCH a busy week of fighting against CCSS Machine.
This article will be short in words, but HUGE in audio content. Why? Warriors, it’s a matter of trust for all of us..
Trust between a citizen and their nation; trust between a parent and a child; AND keeping us ‘at the ready’ against the national data rape our government is committing DAILY!
Some of us who are STILL exposing the illegal activities of our government as part of the CCSS Machine, as well as the willingness of ANYONE else connected, see apathy among parents. WHY? How can we POSSIBLY afford the ‘luxury’ of apathy at this stage of our nation’s demise???!!
Parents, education IS the #1 ‘change agent’ by which to undermine our nation! Data which is collected on our students (or all ages and all choices) is the #1 way to control them! Data is the #1 way to control the nation..it’s economy AND it’s direction.
Warriors, take an hour and a half to listen to my recent SC presentation where we covered not only data rape, but the 6 other things REAL education shouldn’t include!
A big thanks to the Concerned Voters of Pickens County, South Carolina.

However, data rape isn’t our only area where we should be on alert. We need to check our trust level of the education system. With ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) embedded enough mandates that will align every single education choice known to us!
Yet, we’re STILL sending our beloved children into this system. Parents who have gotten their kids out of the more traditional public system and placed them into an alternative, are finding that the SAME data rape, the SAME indoctrination, the SAME assessments are there are well. Warriors, THAT is the VERY goal of ESSA!
Why are we wondering why our kids come home confused about life, when we say we don’t want fed led ed, but we don’t bat an eye sending them there!
Our kids trust us, as their parents! Parents seem to still trust the schools. When schools steeped in indoctrination (which is against the very family entity) tell the students to think one way and we (dare) to say ‘No, we think this way.” WHAT ARE WE REALLY SHOWING OUR KIDS? If the students accept your blanket trust in the CCSS Machine system, then WHATEVER happens in THAT system will be what those students THINK you WANT them to be exposed to!!
Do you really WANT your child daily data raped? Do you really WANT your child assigned to a job path before they can truly decided what they DESIRE to do? Do you really WANT to see the government demand taxpayer money of YOURS to pay for BOTH these and MORE?
Remember, even home education is in danger every time early college/dual enrollment, internships, apprenticeships, virtual public schools, AP (Advanced Placement), IB (International Baccalaureate), ALL of the nationally-normed tests (especially ACT and SAT, GED, and CLEP).
We are ALLOWING our kids to face daily data rape for not simply undermining America, but aligning to the United Nations. Don’t think the data rape extends that far?! I urge you to go back and READ the evidence! A computer has the ability to track everything a student knows, thinks, and does.
Below are the millions/billions of dollars being earmarked for NATIONAL DATA COLLECTION in 2019. HR 6470 and S 3158 are simply a beginning point for Congress in relation to the Fiscal Year (FY) Finalized 2019 Budget. Both these Bills cover ONLY the Depts of Labor, HHS, Education, and ANY related Agency.
Related Information for where we are RIGHT now!
However, by knowing WHERE the money goes, we can track how it ends up in the FINALIZED version. The fiscal Year 2019 begins 10/1/18.
Career Aligning Data Mining: *From HR 6470, $6 million to enlarge and innovate the Workforce Quality Data Initiative (WQDI) uses personal, private data from those in post-secondary schools and the job market to streamline back down to the Student Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) used in any K-12th-grade education tracking system (all ed choices).
*Expanding Apprenticeships (dovetails directly into the new CTE law and Exec Order for expansion) HR 6470: $150 million/S 3158: $160 million
*State grants for One Stop Job Centers, National Data Systems, Vets, etc. HR 6470: $3.47 billion; S 3158: $3.5 billion
*Health Care Data collection S 3158: $21 million
*HR 6470’s Health Care Data Collection is lumped in with Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Admin. (SAMHA) funds for ‘early intervention’ evidence-based research), $1.4 billion
*HR 6470 Health Surveillance/Research (ties to the Freedom of Information Act) $467 million; Data Collection for Substance Abuse: $79 million. Similar to this in S 3158 is the $60.3 million in funds for Health Information Technology upgrades.
*In Education, NATIONAL DATA COLLECTION VIA “SAFE SCHOOLS” (HR 6470: $5.2 billion; S 3158: $5.3 billion)
*HR 6470 has $6.5 million set aside in education for the Census Bureau and Education Data, S 3158: $5 million
*Career Tech Ed (CTE) HR 6470, $1.9 billion (will use SLDS and WQDI among other DATA RAPE information)
S 3158 for CTE: $1.8 billion Institutes for Educational Science (IES), US Dept. of Ed research arm totally dependent on massive amounts of data)
HR 6470: $613 million, S 3158: $615 million BOTH these amounts carry the mandate that they MUST connect Pre-K to adult education/workforce data. From Voices Empowers research:
Most people believe that an IEP is only for students with special needs, as referenced in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). But the fact is, an IEP (Personalized Learning) will soon be, for every American citizen in this new P-20W system. P-20W meaning from prenatal through the workforce, and is a part of a much bigger plan. It is a controlled workforce for a controlled global economy.
When the money follows the child, state or federal Education Savings Acts (ESA)s, via government, regulated “School Choice”, the access point is established to reach every citizen, no matter what education choose is used.
To see the chokehold data has via IDEA funds in the context of ESSA, go here.
Warriors, Parents, and Taxpayers, we HAVE to stop trusting a system which doesn’t serve us as We the People should be served! We MUST take our citizenship duties seriously! PROTECT your FAMILY now!
Warriors Against Fed Led Education, I’ve recently been looking over about 20 different federal bills from ‘our’ Congress. These bills are all the precursors to the Fiscal Year 2019’s FINALIZED Congressional Budget. In other words, what is laid out in this group of bills will be combed over, some changes made, and then combined into one BIG bill by mid September. Fiscal Year 2019 begins Oct. 1, 2018. SO, if we know what to look for NOW, we can be prepared later.
Why so many bills? Well, Warriors, think about it, when you have at least 9 different federal agencies overreaching into education, the funds have to not only be earmarked, they must come from several different angles.
However, make NO mistake, the size of government is NOT shrinking, nor is the footprint in ‘education’. One thing I can assure you of, as concerned American citizens. Our government does not care one bit about our students, as people, but as producers of profit for big government and big business.
As we know, Warriors, the shift in modern academics has been to remove true academia and replace it with workforce prep. The bills I’ve been looking at are 100% proof of this well planned, and so far, executed CCSS Machine agenda.
Warriors, for the remainder of this article, you’ll get all the information about these FY 2019 Congressional bills. Use the information to ask questions, demand answers, tell your Representative and Senator that there’s NO WAY you are OK with
(*Note: Not only will some of these bills cover FY 2019, but have laid the groundwork for every fiscal year between 2019 and 2028!)
Warriors, the time I’m asking you to spend on the following items is more than likely the most important thing you can do for your country. It’s certainly more time that it appears Congress spent remembering ANY overreach into education is illegal!
1) Start here, Warriors, it’s my most recent 40 minute video laying out the main Congressional Bills: House Concurred Resolution #128, HR 6470 and S 3158.
2) Then, take a couple of minutes and access my most recent article titled “Moving Along”. There, you’ll find the most well known US Government agencies with their claws in education.
3) To access the H Con Res 128, go here. What the most important items are from this Resolution is that all the FYs from 2019-2028 are laid out. You’ll also note that out of the 22 most important budget items, education is #10. It’s also lumped in with labor, jobs, and all social services. There’s a distinct reason for this.
4) Because education is lumped in with labor and social services, we need to note that most social services are headed up in the health and human services areas. Hence, the HR 6470 and S 3158. These sister bills cover ALL FY 2019 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies. (*Note: Warriors are you seeing the theme here, that even Congress is relegating education to a back seat?) The most important items about HR 6470 and S 3158 are below. I urge you to comb through these on your own to see what else is in store.
a) Money being budgeted varies slightly from Chamber to Chamber in some cases, in most, both Chambers of Congress are in total agreement. (An example is that BOTH Bills seek to have $6 million dollars to ‘beef up’ and innovate the WQDI (Workforce Quality Data Initiative), but vary slightly on Title One funds via ESSA and HEA (Every Student Succeeds and the Higher Education Act). The House wants $16.4 billion and the Senate wants $16.5 billion.)
b) HR 6470 is 194 pages and is on the Union Calendar for Congress as Item #667. S 3158 is 172 pages and is on the Senate Calendar as Item #497. The ‘Union’ calendar means that HR 6470 (and any other House bill with a Union Calendar #) was passed out of its Committee (in this case the Committee for Funding Labor, HHS, Ed, and their Related Agencies) and is waiting further action. The ‘Senate’ calendar means that whatever item is marked there, it needs Senate action on from the entire floor. A General Order (some of the Senate FY 2019 bills have this) note means the order in which the item was received.
c) Both HR 6470 and S 3158 have Committee Reports. As important as combing through the main bills are, these Reports are MUCH more revealing as to exactly where and HOW the funds will be spent IF APPROVED in the Final FY 2019 Budget. Here’s Committee Report 115-862from the House. The see the Senate Committee Report 115-289, go here. d) Both HR 6470 and S 3158 have money earmarked to expand CTE (Career Tech Education) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) Apprenticeships. The House wants to spend $150 million in expansion and the Senate, $160 million. As we know, Warriors, the President recently signed into law a nation-wide expansion for CTE and apprenticeships, as well as created a new EO (Executive Order) to create an expansion of government in overseeing apprenticeships. This also plays right into a previous President Trump EO to expand apprenticeships. You can read all about all of these EOs and the new law, here.
e) Also look for Community Development Block Grants, Head Start, Early Head Start, Social Services, Mental Health, Biomedical, Biotechnology, YouthBuild, TRIO, GEAR UP, any technical or infrastructure upgrades or assistance, or the many instances for national data collection (for example, near pages 68-70 of both HR 6470 and S 3158, you’ll see millions set aside for collecting mental health data from children.
f) Beginning on Page 113 (Page 115 in the Senate) in the House bill, you’ll see the ESSA breakdown for the huge amounts of taxpayer funds being sought. However, read carefully, Warriors, it is in this section (and others throughout all the Budget bills I’ve been reading) that an increase in funding from P3s (public private partnerships) will be HOW the federal government funds our nation’s agencies AND programs! These funds will come by donation, be awarded as either competitive or non-competitive grants and/or sub-grants. These ‘awards’ will also be available to non-profit groups. All in the name of ‘student success’.
5) HR 5894 (Union Calendar #539) is only 42 pages long and is what the House wants to see funding in FY 2109 for the entire Legislative Branch of the government. The tie to education can be found on page 26 via the Library of Congress’s $8.5 million for curriculum. (*Note: this bill has a Committee Report you’ll want to read.) S 3071 (Calendar #450) is 34 pages long. It has a VERYrevealingCommittee Report where you’ll see the CCSS Machine woven throughout. S 3071 also covers the FY 2019 Legislative Budget. One of the ties to education in the Senate Committee Report can be found on Page 16 with the Dept of Treasury’s Community Development Finance grants. Warriors, you’ll see that these grants can also be investments or loans. With ESSA’s mandate and funding increase to create 21st Century Community Learning Centers, this is a big red flag!
6) Warriors, these remaining bills cover most of the federal agencies with education overreach as well. Their ties to where in education will be in blue.
HR6258 and S 3107 cover Financial Services/General Gov’t. (*Note S 3107 has a detailedCommittee Report.) DC school improvement grants and the National Science Technology Council HR5952 and S 3072 cover Commerce/Justice/Science/Related Agencies (*Note: S 3072 has an accompanying Committee Report. The House’s Committee Report is here.) Economic development, census data collection, scientific research and information sharing technology. Ties to CCR (College/Career Readiness, STEM, the United Nations and CTE) HR 6072 and S 3023 cover Transportation/HUD/Related Agencies (*Note: the House CommitteeReport/Senate’s) Sustainable neighborhoods (of which you can probably tie to Promise Neighborhoods of ESSA), ties to the HEA (Higher Education Act), businesses testing higher education, national data collection, gives the Secretaries of Ed, Labor, HHS, Transportation, Commerce, the EPA, and the Attorney General leverage. HR 6157 and S 3159 cover the U. S. Dept of Defense (*Note: HR 6157 is currently in the Senate, as it has passed the House’s voting system. The Committee Report for HR 6157 is here. You can find the Senate’s here.) Gives more power to the Secretary of Education and LEAs (Local Education Agencies, at US Ed’s direction, over military base schools, targets Veterans and higher education, data mining, and data banks. HR 5961 and S 2976 cover Agriculture/Rural Activities/FDA/Related Agencies (*Note: House Committee Report/Senate’s) Specifically refers to a national Bio/Ag Facility in KS, the Borlang International project, Food for Peace Grants, 12 education references, 10 science/technology priorities, and on Page 64 of HR 5961, portions of the budget must be used for science based educational information on the environment (this will lead to the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals of the UN and STEM). S 3073 covers Interior/Environment/Related Agencies (*Note: The Committee Report) Education, especially as it relates to the Bureau of Indian Education’s alignment, is referred to in 31 different instances. HR 6147 covers Interior/Environment/General Gov’t/Agriculture/Rural Development/Food and Drug/Transportation and HUD (*Note: This Bill has passed both the House and the Senate. The House Committee Report is here. I’m including the plethora of amendment actions from both Chambers of Congress, as well.) Education is embedded a total of 65 times, Science (and as it relates to STEM in the various federal agencies) is embedded 22 times. HR 5786 and S 3024 cover Military Construction/Veteran Affairs and Related Agencies (*Note: House Committee Report/Senate’s) Regional data collection, in the House Committee Report, education is embedded 24 times. S 2975 covers Energy/Water Development (*Note: this Bill is sponsored by Sen. Lamar Alexander, father of ESSA lies about local control in education. The Senate Committee Report is here.) Specific use of funds for educational purposes. HR 6385 and S 3108 cover State/Foreign Operations and Related Agencies (*Note: House Committee Report/Senate’s) In the House bill pages 3 and 4 cite the United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948; Fulbright Scholar program, and at least 34 other educational references embedded throughout. The Senate’s bill has 40 education overreaches.
Warriors, please note that in H Con Res 128, the 22 prioritized agencies have until Sept. 14, 2018 to trim their budgets. You can find the figures beginning on Page 44. For example, the Committee on Education, Job Training, Employment, and, Social Services must reduce their assigned $90 billion down to $70 billion.
In the Senate Committee Report related to S 3107, the following programs or offices are overreaching into education or items directly related to education services: The U.S. Treasury’s Capital Investment Plan, cyber-security, financial literacy, DATA Act, Government Accounting Office, The IRS’s TIGTA program, taxpayer data tracking, IRS’s Future State Vision, US Mint’s Community Development Financial Inst. Fund, Drug-Free Communities Support Program (ties to the Office of National Drug control Policy which partners with the US HHS’s Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Admin. in grants schools money), FCC’s IT Reform plans, Tech Modernization Funds, Harry S Truman Scholarship Funds
In the House Committee Report related to H 6147, the following programs or offices are overreaching into education or any directly related service: National Foundation of the Arts, the National Holocaust Museum (federally funded EXCEPT all educational materials which are privately funded), 21st Century Conservation Service Corps, National Endowment of the Arts/Humanities, Federal Land acquisitions to tie to World Heritage Sites, 3D Earn and Empower Program, Water Research Act, Core Science Systems Supports, Community Development Block Grants, BIE programs to align PreK to adult among the Native Americans, EPA’s expansion into STEM, Regional Innovation Clusters, and the Smithsonian’s expansion of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and, Math).
Warriors, look for an update article in mid September about all this. In the meantime, raise your voices against the continued abuse of our taxpayer funds, the overreach into education, our privacy, and all that connects them. This is NOT our American vision!
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have you heard about“Ready By 21”?! It’s to ensure ALL students are ready for college/career/life by the time they reach 21 years of age. What group is responsible for Ready? The Forum for Youth Investment. (*Note: we’ll look into them later in this article.)
While ‘Ready By 21’ isn’t new (nor its agenda), it is timely to look into with the recent news that Sec. DeVos believes all American schools should be just like their European counterparts. This DeVos news, of course, is a great supporter of the proposed U.S. Departments of Education and Labor merging, too. I covered that in my last article, as well as a trio of Facebook live videos, too.
Warriors, several nationally recognized groups have shown how the merger is toxic for us. Many independent media shows have also picked up the banner of #nomerger, yet the petition supporting our opposition is crawling along in support.
We MUST get serious about having this petition reach its 100,000 signature goal, otherwise we LOSE an opportunity to be heard in DC!
How does DeVos’s belief mirror support for the merger? That recent article detailed her belief that workforce readiness is far more important than academics.
Other CCSS Machine agenda items about being so much like Europe are:
1) It’s a way to usher in ‘globalism’ or ‘global education for all’;
2) It’s a gentle way to introduce the ‘collectivism’ incorporated into workforce based education and divorce your mind from ‘individualism’.
3) If this is sounding like a lot of United Nations double speak to you, you’re right on target! It is.
However, Warriors, here’s ‘the other shoe’ in relationship to “Ready by 21”; it’s “Credentialed by 26″.
Before I give you more details into 21:26 (as I’ll call it), think about this: the CURRENTEuropean Commission’s Youth Guarantee Program funnels young people through a similar track.
It targets those students of ALL educational choices and backgrounds between the ages of 16 and 24.
Basically, if you’re not in some sort of school training, you’re working for someone else. Why? Because working for yourself doesn’t boost the collective economy near as much as working for local businesses. Think I’m joking? Watch the European Commission’s Youth Guarantee original promotional video:
Warriors, if you’d like to learn more about the European Commission’s ties to the European Union, go here. If you’d like more on how the European Union is tied to the United Nations, go here. For a visual on how these are all tied together:
As far as how all this type of alignment is paid for in America, it’s either tax payer funds or P3 (public private partnerships). Each have many strings to bind our education to a workforce based system.
In Europe, the funds come from 2 places, as well. One way is through the ‘member states’ and their commitment to a collective budget. In the budget are apprenticeships, higher education fees, and more. This YEI (Youth Employment Initiative) not only ‘compliments’ the Guarantee Initiative, but targets regions with low employment. The second way Europe funds all this is the ESF (European Social Fund).
The ESF works on a local, regional, and, national level in ALL employment related programs, agencies, groups, and, businesses across each ‘member state’. It’s main ‘attracting tool’?! Vocational training/school.
Warriors, in America ‘vocational training/school’ was re-branded to Career Tech Education (CTE) with the Perkins Act, the WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Act), as well as ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act)! The current re-written versions of the existing HEA (Higher Education Act), also use CTE. What’s more is CTE IS Common Core for workforce ‘human capital’!!
Warriors, how would the U.S. Dept. of Education and U. S. Dept. of Labor’s merger mirror the EU’s funding? It would combine the funding based off the existing funding streams in use by WIOA, ESSA, STEM, Perkins funding, as well as the P3s.
On the State level, we only need to look to our General Assemblies or State Congressional laws/bills. For example, NC has a bill currently waiting on the ‘long session’ to convene where funds for MORE CTE are not only generated off the taxpayer’s backs, but includes federal funds, and P3s, to guarantee all 100 counties have Career Tech Education for more jobs for better economic standing! (*Note: the Bill is called the “Future Ready Student Act”)
If you’ve read my blog for long you may recall I shared with you the NC Prosperity Zones. These Zones play into the workforce aligned education shift. When I shared this awful news back in 2015, I posed the question about this type of educratic overreach creating segregation in our nation. Knowing how the UN’s plan is playing out already in American education, I don’t think it’s a question anymore. I think we have our answer. We know the nation’s been split into CTE based College/Career Ready regions. If we didn’t know better, we’d think this was totally unrelated to the EU’s regionalism. But, then since the EU’s ways are the UN’s ways, we know regionalism is also, a United Nations tool.
Warriors, the question you should ask your State: Is this already in place where I live? The demand we should be making is to HALT the continued alignment of work and education in DC.
Forum for Youth Investment:
Warriors, what you see is a 2011 version of the Forum’s ‘snapshot’ for your student, school, and community. You can find the entire ‘log’ of details, here. I urge you to not only read the entire Plan for ‘stakeholders’, but compare it to the EU’s YEI and ESF. You’ll find they are not so far removed from each other. You’ll also see that the Forum for Youth Investment had partnered with Corporate Voices for Working Families in the 2011 stakeholder’s Plan.
Corporate Voices for Working Families was begun in 2001 with funding from the Marriott Foundation. Other CCSS Machine foundations like the Gates and Kellogg were also helpful. If you’ve heard of the “Learn and Earn” Initiatives across America, this is the source of them.
Warriors, you’ll also want to see the Congressionally mapped out RoI (Return on Investment) information the Forum has on our youth across America. If ever we doubted that our kids were being ‘data raped’, this will help prove it. If you’d like to see the dollar figure attached to your child form this 2017 document, look below:
Oh, and the Forum’s“Ready by 21, Credentialed by 26”? That’s supported by the Gates Foundation. Here’s a screen shot of one of the publications for 21:26:
To access all the archives for “Ready by 21, Credentialed by 26”, go here. To see the October 2018 upcoming Forum conference where you’ll see SEL (social emotional learning) lumped in with all the ‘readiness’, look here. Currently, it appears 3 States are in the Forum’s focus : VA, TN, and, FL. If you live in these 3 States, this is your opportunity to use the current merger petition to fight back!
If you live in other States, you’ll want the complete list of previously targeted States and cities found here. (*For example, NC, where I live had 4 different Ready by 21 programs started between 2009 and 2015. Those programs are firmly in place NOW. For other States, their entire system is a “Ready by 21” one!)
Warriors, we’ve not a second to lose! Every single American from within our borders is in the sights of the CCSS Machine. The Ed/Labor merger plays right into this. The shift for workforce readiness encroaches into every school choice and every home across our nation. It’ll keep going unless we fight back! We cannot simply empty the public schools and think this will go away. We must demand our local, State, and, federal systems completely divorce the United Nations’ systematic demise of our education!
We must realize that NO school choice will escape this ‘readiness’ regime. We certainly know that each of us is worth MORE than a mere $30,000.00! We certainly know that all this violates our U.S. Constitution, our civil rights, AND, our pursuit of happiness! Join us in being a force to be reckoned with when it comes to saving our youth! Stop the scorning of your children.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, just a few days ago, I posted an article where I told you I’d be going more in depth about charter schools. That article revealed how charter schools are being used as tools to indoctrinate our students with CTE (Career Tech Education) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
However, before I get to the more in-depth information about charters, I want to plant this thought in your minds. Let this thought stick with you for the rest of the traditional summer break. Let it ruminate in your heart and then act upon whatever conclusion you come to.
Why are our schools becoming the fastest growing franchise in America?!
If you were to compare fast food franchise growth to how quickly our schools are becoming franchises, you would realize we’ve been lied to. You would be angry. You’d want to take your children back home.
Have I Lost My Fries?!
Warriors, before you think I’m a few fries short of a full order, I really hope you can understand my contrast. If you’ve been to one fast food restaurant, you know that no matter where you go, the food will be the same, the layout will more than likely be the same, the prices will be very similar, too. You also know the food has a taste which is the same, so this means the same suppliers and preparation of the food will be the same everywhere else. The only, and I do mean ONLY difference is the location of each fast food restaurant.
Now, flip this to education, especially in the ‘ESSA Era’ or the Every Student Succeeds Act Era. You’ve heard me state it hear and on every radio interview and social media post I can, that due to ESSA’s mandate for ALL education to be aligned to the same standards (post-secondary readiness as laid out by WIOA, Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), that no school choice is safe.
Every State is a franchise location of the ESSA law. With ESSA law comes ESSA mandates. These mandates include charter schools, both public and private.
The Charter School “Hearing”:
Warriors, as I told you in my previous article, the recent (June 13th) Education and Workforce Committee (U.S. House of Representatives) was all about how powerful charter schools in the US are.
Once again, here’s the link to the archived ‘hearing’. Now, why do I have hearing in quotes. Well, if you listen to the entire archive you’ll hear the meeting called a ‘hearing’, a ‘conversation’, and other descriptions. (*Note: the Ed/Workforce Press Release called the meeting a ‘discussion’.)
Much like the previous article featuring this archive, I’m not going to tell you every blow by blow comment. BUT you do need to see the notes I took and am sharing below.
As you know, Rep. Virginia Foxx heads up the Ed/Workforce Committee. She has stated several times that ‘ALL education is Career Tech Education’, so to see her heading up a hearing on charter schools was interesting, to say the least.
From Foxx’s Opening Statement, she pointed to the overplayed ‘zip code’ and how it needs to suggest more ‘school choice’. She pointed out how ESSA was/is to maintain and EXPAND charter schools of all kinds. Also mentioned were the ‘student outcomes’ and how charters are a type of savior or lifeline for our students. How? Their ‘lifelong love of learning’ will be more secure.
Strange, all this sentiment coming from the Congress member who has proclaimed ALL education is CTE and that because of that, it’s all workforce development!
However, weigh into this that almost every Congress member supportive of ESSA has said they were holding out for ESSA to be implemented EXACTLY as written. Maybe NOW we can see why they’d hold that ‘opinion’. One thing’s for certain, by being SO supportive of all the CCSS Machine alignment in education, the Congress members are revealing their true allegiance is not to America or to her citizens. It’s more toward globalization.
From Co-Chair Rep. Scott (VA) and his opening comments: charters will ‘fix’ dismal public education. There needs to be an increase in federal funding across the nation (in every community) for more charters (that’s already an ESSA mandate). About the 39:29 minute mark, you’ll hear Scott be the first (among many others at the hearing) who told us their job isn’t representing the citizens (their voters) but ‘policy-making’.
No Congress members job is to establish or make policy, their jobs are to create legislation to become law as per the will of the people.
You’ll also hear Rep. Scott mis-peak about America’s role. (40:31). He’s the first of many to make this same error. Warriors, we are NOT a democracy, we ARE a Constitutional republic! (I guess the fact Congress members cannot distinguish between democracy and republic should alarm us all). What should concern us as well, is that Rep. Scott (and others) believe that public schools, including public charters are the ‘bedrock of our democracy’. Scott goes on to thank Sec. of Education DeVos for giving us a ‘good glimpse at the free market public education system’.
Near the 44:55 time mark, ESSA will strengthen all charters regulations and accountability. Shortly after this, Scott told us all that ‘we now have more choices than ever before’, then added that America’s looking at choice from around the world. (No, America should be looking to the parents, the students, the teachers, the taxpayers.)
Rep. Scott did state that ‘the more flexible the school system, the more strength is needed for policy’. Any ‘choice devoid of strong policy will not work’.
Enter the “Witnesses”:
Rees is with the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools (my previous article details how the NAPCS is tied to the CCSS Machine).
Richmond is with the National Association of Charter School Authorizers. Among the NACSA Board members, you’ll find NM’s former State Superintendent Skandera (A huge CCSS/CTE disciple). Among the Advisory Board? Nina Rees and representatives from the Gates Foundation, the Walton Family Foundation and others. From their IRS 990 form, I found what appears to be a tie to the U.S. Dept. of Ed’s National Charter School Resource Center (also featured in the previous article as a funder for the NAPCS.) You’ll also find an NC based organization called “Public Impact, LLC” among the NACSA’s 5 top most compensated contractors. (*Note: Public Impact, LLCcites an AIR-Brookings study, so we know they are a CCSS Machine member group, too.)
Warriors, you’ll find the Gates Foundation gave a $2 million grant to the NACSA in 2017.
(*Note: the U.S. Dept. of Ed’s National Charter School Resource Center is funneled through another group called Safal Partners. Safal is a TX based education management consulting firm. If you’d like to see their Charter School Closureguide, find it here. Be sure to look at those presenting information and what States they are from.)
Dr. West is with Harvard University as well as the editor-in-chief for “Education Next”. (*Note: I have scores of articles on Harvard’s alignment to the CCSS Machine, especially in the global and student data raping topics.)
To see Finn’s ties to Fordham, look for bullet point #1.
Warriors, go back and listen/watch the hearing. You’ll hear plenty of CCSS Machine rhetoric. However, the final and BIGGEST revelation spoken during this dog and pony show (aka ‘hearing’) came from Mr. Richmond. You’ll find it near the 1:14:17 time mark.
Rep. Guthrie (KY) was asking him a question about the charter school process. Richmond’s response was ‘every charter is a public school in every State’. He went on to say there are federal charter school grant programs which State apply for help.
Richmond purposefully made no effort to distinguish between public and private charter schools. Why? Because, per ESSA, ALL education is to be the same (aka a ‘franchise’).
I repeat, ‘every charter is a public school in every State’.
Warriors, I urge you, listen, watch, then act to remove your children from ANY of the taxpayer funded schools and programs. With the looming news of the U.S. Depts of Ed and Labor to possibly merge, it’s dire to act NOW!
We already know that ESSA’s mandate for education isn’t academic prowess, it’s workforce training. This merger will complete that..for charters, traditional schools, private schools, homeschools, and, at every age level. So higher education and trade schools will be no better.
If you’re wondering why I chose the word ‘franchise’ for this article, the word is a synonym for ‘charter’. Go back to my original thought I wanted you to ponder over.
Do you see?!
You may feel hopeless, but don’t, there are more citizens than politicians, so let’s work together to protect our students.
My fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors, here’s the latest agenda filled system behind AP World History.
Warriors, you know I’ve held nothing back in exposing that ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is impacting (in real time) EVERY school choice.
It absorbedAP (Advanced Placement) courses into the mandates for aligned education. Also, IB (International Baccalaureate) Schools.
You also know that IB Schools are UN (United Nations) breeding grounds for globalism and collectivism. (*Note: early in my blogging days, this resource filled article.)
At one time AP courses were truly ‘advanced’. At one time the credits and scores your student earned actually meant ‘honor’.
However, these courses and tests went the way of the wind when they were aligned to the CCSS Machine.
Now, AP Courses are just as empty as the rest of the CCSS aligned (or whatever label your State has re-branded CC to) ‘curriculum’ and assessments.
I know you’ve seen the decrease in quality. I’ve watched it over the past few years. Especially in private and homeschooling. I’ve also seen how the public schools have used AP as a sort of ‘dividing line’ among students. Truly sickening.
Where AP and the UN Meet:
Warriors, simply put, World History.
In this teacher led instructional video, she openly tells the students that she’ll be away for 2 days attending the UN Model Club Conference. She’s leaving them an assignment to watch a documentary and then complete the SPICE chart. What’s a SPICE chart?
Before I share what each letter stands for, look at the simplicity of this chart:
Why all the detail and fuss for such a simple chart? Why not let kids take notes in a way which makes sense to them? If these students are truly ‘advanced’ shouldn’t they be able to figure this out for themselves? And finally, why let the computer guide them?
The Meaning Behind SPICE, Agenda Dressed In Education:
“S” stands for ‘Social’ and includes class structures, social mobility and barriers, gender roles and relations, family and kinship, racial and ethnic constructs, urbanization, and, freedoms/rights. “P” stands for ‘Political’ and includes government and leadership, nations and nationalism, revolts and revolutions, conflict and war, legal and court systems, regional/trans-regional/global, and, structure/organization. “I” stands for ‘Interacting with the Environment’ and covers demography, disease, migration, natural resources, settlement patterns, impact of natural barriers, flora/fauna/climate, and technology. “C” stands for ‘Cultural’ and covers religions/beliefs/ideologies, language, writing, art/architecture, clothing/food/music, education, science/technology, and nationalism. “E” stands for ‘Economic’ and entails material wealth, production (agricultural and pastoral), distribution (trade and commerce), labor systems, industrialization, wealth distribution, and banks/currency.
However, Warriors, look at how this OH teacher’s blog highlights each letter of SPICE.
Do you see what he is choosing to put at the top of the list for “Social”? The UN also has a ‘gender agenda’, its SDG #5. (*Note: SDG is short for Sustainable Development Goal)
To see how the CCSS Machine uses gender as a ‘change agent’, read this.
Warriors, the UN actively recognizes America as a ‘nation-state’ or as a ‘member-state’.
Many of the UN’s SDGs center on environment. To the point environment is more important than people.
Notice how this theme centers on a dominant belief system? Notice how science and technology are also present? You can trace the science/technology all through STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) and the SDGs. STEM is a tool created by the UN to implement the SDGs.
This next SPICE video from You Tube reveals a broader agenda in AP World History. Flip Learning (where all individual school work is completed at home and all collaborative work is completed in class) is what this one teacher is saying has been proven to be more effective than traditional school work. Warriors, this is all but eliminating ALL individual work in class.
While that’s a wake-up call on its own, it’s the teacher’s leading the students on how to decipher a picture they are seeing which is even more awakening. Why? She coaches them by telling them when we don’t know things we can be uncomfortable about them. However, by using this SPICE system, as they know more the students will feel more comfortable about the world around them. This teacher also guides the students thinking by telling them nothing happens in a vacuum/that everything interconnects.
Warriors, just how does the AP coursework intersect with Model UN Clubs? From 2014, this NC high school used the two to from a ‘joint crisis committee’.
Here’s another example of how AP is steering kids to see the UN’s global continuity and tie it to which of our U.S. Presidents was most supportive. Compare what you read here with the SPICE information. Do you see the connections?!
In 2016, I showed you how the UN Model Clubs were impacting homeschoolers (as do AP courses). Earlier this year, I showed you more about the march for global citizens and gave you more information on education as that ‘change agent’.
While McGraw-Hill isn’t the copyright owner of AP, it has an entire catalog of AP ‘electives’. World History is among them. You’ll see how the current AP courses align to C3 (College/Career/Civic Life) as well as NGSS (Next Gen Science Standards). The UN can be found in C3 and NGSS.
AP Summer Time:
For students during the summer, the CCSS aligned AP courses keep going! This AP Summer Institute at one NC university campus this year is just an example. See below:
To see how the State of NC gives these AP Summer scholarships, go here. Note that when you scroll all the way down the screen you’ll find out the partner for these scholarships is the NC State Board of Education. So, in other words, the AP summer institutes are taxpayer funded!
Now, Warriors, I know your State will have AP courses as well, so be looking for those summer camps! If you want to see how AP students are data raped to provide your State with ‘information’ that can be ‘celebrated’, go here.
Let’s not forget, The National Reviewshowed the leftist approach from College Board to support the UN’s activities back in 2014.
Warriors, as far as who created the SPICE chart system, it doesn’t really matter. What does, is that the AP courses and assessments have increased their amount of collectivism.
This is infecting ALL education choices. Do we want to be a free America or a controlled one?
