Ed’s Potpurri

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, while the main stream news tries to overload us with ‘squirrels’, the U.S. Dept. of Education is carrying on the status quo.

Should THIS be main stream information? I believe so. Why? Because everyday the status quo in ‘education’ is carried out, millions of lives are being harmed.

THAT, my fellow Warriors, should be OUR only news!

I believe if it were our only news, we’d be more inclined to jump in and save our nation’s citizens.

MLKquote

Think of it this way. Potpourri is used to help rooms smell good. Some potpourri mixes are pleasing to our noses, while others assault our noses with a bad smell. Not everyone can be around potpourri, if it contains something they are allergic to.

goodsmell

When the CCSS Machine rolled into America, it replaced the good, quality education (pleasing potpourri) with a stench SO bad, it’s smelled world-wide. The abysmal education we see trotted out isn’t for everyone, either, however, it is all we’re getting.

rottennut

For the remainder of this article, I’ll share with you some of the latest news from the U.S. Dept. of Education. I warn you, the ‘smell’ is vile.

 

Ed’s “Smell” in Transmedia circa 2015 To Present:

In an email from the U.S. Dept. of Ed, sent last week (Aug.2019), several items were brought up.
While a new TV ‘transmedia’ (short for “transmitted media”) was released, the link used in the email took you to what you see below. There was no press release date, so it wasn’t until you began to read the information about ‘transmedia’ that the 2015 date shows up as ‘new’.
By the way, the RtL (Ready to Learn) TV can be seen on PBS (already a CCSS Machine member group). To see the entire page (be sure to read the ‘about RtL’ portion at the bottom of the page. You’ll spot the source of the ‘smell’: school readiness.)

transmedia


Ready to Learn TV got its start based off money and policy. It also gears itself around the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandate for 365, 24/7 access to educational media. This ‘access’ is to encompass EVERY school choice, even homeschools.

While we can trace the money back to the CCSS Machine (includes WestEd), where did the policy come from? Northwestern University! Back in 2015, I shared with you  the Northwestern University’s Kellogg Center CCSS Machine ties. For RtL TV, the Northwestern department is the Communications Dept.

Warriors, let’s also see if we can spot the agenda’s smell by the term ‘transmedia’. With all the confusion surrounding ‘trans’ in other education subjects, won’t a move like this help further the confusion?

Ed’s Globalistic “Opportunity Zones”:

Also from that email last week, was the news that Sec. DeVos wants to enfold the Presidential Initiative for Opportunity Zones into education.

edopzone

Warriors, this absolutely smells of treason!! How? First, ESSA is a K-12th grade law which codified WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act). WIOA had Opportunity Zones already in place! ESSA also mandated regionalized education. Regionalism is 100% United Nations. As far as education goes, across our nation, the regionalism is well entrenched through College and Career Readiness hubs. Secondly, this move to align education to job opportunities supports the G20 ed/labor document DeVos signed on behalf of our nation.

Warriors, we have an opportunity to weigh in on DeVos’s desires, but we MUST act by August 28th!! As of this article, only 3 other citizens have spoken out. Two of those 3 are citing corruption. Mine cited the uniting of education and labor is treasonous and illegal. You’ll find the Federal Registry link above (opportunity zone initiative is highlighted for you).

Ed’s Update To Data Mining:

Warriors, we know the ‘smell’ of data mining well. Of all the rotten potpourri scents, this one is the stinker of them all!

Warriors, to further learn about the Ellucian Banner System (supposedly will make higher education stronger), go here.

Ed;  As If America’s Not Global Enough Already:

The folks at the U.S. Dept. of Education are laying out what they hope is a teasing scent to entice us to look toward International Education Week (11/18-22/19).

iew2019

When you visit the embedding link (above), be sure to listen to the Secretary of the State’s video message. In it, he claims international education will help promote American values all over the world.

I ask you, Warriors, how is this possible when our very values are being thrown away and replaced with the United Nations’?

The, if you can actually stand listening to Sec. DeVos, you need to. Her fragrance of globalism almost wafts off the screen! Listen for ‘lifelong learning’ and being career ready. DeVos’s direction in education is steering right into the global workforce.

Closing:

Warriors, if your nose if full of bad smells by now, I’d like to invite you to refresh your sense of smell with some truth.

1) We the People are more in number than the US federal government; we need to act on this.

2) Everything the U.S. Dept. of Education is doing, has done, and is planning is illegal. Everything they are doing spills over into every other federal agency.
We should revolt against this.

3) We are governed by the U.S. Declaration of Independence, NOT the United Nations declarations of conformity. We need to be persistent with this message in reaching our officials.

4) We should no longer call any educrat, regardless of office status, a ‘leader’. Where they are leading is NOT where we should go.
Leaders should be honest and respecting of their followers.
No one in the CCSS Machine is a leader to us. No one in the CCSS Machine respects us.
They are underminers of our nation and destroyers of our future as free citizens. They are our enemies. We need to act like it.
We will change nothing in this War Vs the Core by playing nice.

5) We are the protectors of our children, we cannot allow them to suffer under this educratic takeover anymore.

Agenda In America

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, it’s “Made in America” week, as proclaimed by the President of the USA. It’s also an opportunity to trot out every supposed positive move about job creation, the booming economy, and, innovation. The agenda supporting ALL of these 3 things?
Workforce aligned education!

essagoal

Workforce aligned education is something the President has gone out of his way to not only continue, but increase its power. Something VERY unconstitutional, too.

Warriors, as we know, the President is not the only DC official to fully back workforce aligned education. Congress LOVES it. The CCSS Machine loves it, too.

Educrats and corporate sell-outs all across our nation, from BOTH major political parties openly embrace workforce aligned education. If you don’t believe me, read the evidence, here.

formerusa

As we also know, workforce aligned education has been re-branded about as many times as “Common Core State Standards” has been. Workforce aligned education is CTE: Career Tech Education; STEM/STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, (the Arts), and, Math; CCR: College and Career Readiness: PL: Personalized Learning; CBE/OBE: Competency Based Education aka Outcome Based Education, and whatever apprenticeship/internship or workstudy program your State has attached to all of these above

Why or how? The federal overreaches between the U.S. Dept. of Labor and U.S. Dept. of Education. The workforce based alignment includes data mining, data tracking for life, assessments which pigeon-hole students of all ages and school choices for work/career tracks.These are also known by Career Clusters/Career Pathways, and Lifelong Learning.

foxxed

The root of ALL of the workforce based/aligned education is the UN, United Nations.
Especially through their SDGs, Sustainable Development Goals.

The support for the root of workforce aligned education, in America, is ‘off the charts’.

From one of my “Prudence Files” articles, the green denotes workforce ties.

currentfeds1

This means the agenda, is also ‘off the charts’. What’s worse, Warriors, is this will be a driving force behind our upcoming elections in 2020.* Agenda dressed up as success is really a national failure. (*Note: the link above is Part 5 of my Prudence Files series, detailing all the Presidential candidates. You can easily access Parts 1-4, from this article as well.)
Warriors
, again, green denotes the workforce alignment support. 
statelocal1

So, if  you are celebrating the supposed good news about “Made in America” week,  stop and consider what it is you are allowing to be carried out. Think about what it is you are really endorsing. Then, look at your children, your grandchildren, your young neighbors, and, little ones you meet around town. Look them in the eye and let them know that “Made in America” is really indentured servitude.

workforcekid

*Note: if you are upset by this article, I invite you to join me to fight back. This doesn’t have to be our children’s future. If we continue to cheer on the agenda, that’s exactly what we’ll get. If we wish to remain a free country, we’ll fight with tenacity.

fire
Fighting so ALL may be independent of the CCSS Machine!

Warriors, I am but a mere messenger, I did not create this agenda, nor do I support its existence. As you know, I’ve  held ANY political figure or political wannabe to a critical standard, as is our citizenship duty. Regardless of political party, this agenda is thriving.

What She Said…

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, would you wait 4 or 5 years to enact your household budget or a family emergency plan? No! You’d make sure once you set a budget you’d immediately begin going by it.

Not so with our federal government’s involvement with education. Nope, ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) was passed in Dec. 2015, we’re not far from its 5th anniversary. As federal laws go, especially for education, ESSA’s set to be re-authorized and funding extended in 2020.  

One huge bone of contention about ESSA was the phrase ‘supplement not supplant’. (This was also in ESEA, Elementary and Secondary Education Act. ESSA is the re-authorized version of ESEA.)

devosled
Supplement Vs Supplant:

Why do I bring this up, Warriors?

Because Sec. DeVos has recently completed a new non-regulatory ‘Supplement, not Supplant’ guidebook for SEAs and LEAs (State Education Agencies, usually your State Dept. of Education) and Local Education Agencies).

The bottom line: While the document is supposedly a guideline, the language in ESSA is more of a mandate. Where will we most likely see ‘supplements’ in education? Title One funding, my Warrior friends. Title One, as we know, via ESSA, was made over to cover EVERY student, not those in the most need, as Title One was originally to cover. Title One funds, via ESSA, are to be used to label and categorize mental and behavioral health of EVERY student in the community, not simply the public school system.

Warriors, this new guidebook is the result of the federal government wanting to appear ‘flexible’ to each State. We’ve seen the ‘flexibility’ of the federally run education. There isn’t any. Especially when you consider that Page 17 of ESSA clearly states how ALL education is to be:

nochoice

Supposedly, the public was allowed time to give their feedback about how federally led education was to help supplement local education, not supplant it. Yet, when you look at the guidelines (which coach SEAs and LEAs on HOW to use federal funds in ADDITION to Title One), you don’t see the public’s desire to END federal control of education, you see the CCSS Machine’s grasp tighten the funding streams, just a wee bit more.

Two questions: How does this type of ‘guidance’ even begin to appear like local control in education? How does this further illustrate our example of sticking to a family budget instead of waiting 5 years to enact it?

Two answers: Guidance, via our federal government, is a dressed up mandate to conform. In education, conformity equals the ‘privilege’ of receiving federal funds.

 
As far as our example, with 5 years between making plans and enacting them, doesn’t do anything to achieve your goals. It’s a moot point. You’d have been better off to not make a budget if you won’t work to make it happen.

If any State TRULY wanted to be free of the federal intrusion in education at ALL age levels for ALL choices, the answer is a plain as day: DON’T take the money! It violates our Tenth Amendment!!the-capitol-view-return-to-sender-snqyhq-clipart

When you read the Supplement Not Supplant Guidelines, look at the language..’May a State do x,y, and z’? If the States weren’t addicted to the federal funds, no State leader would EVER need to ask the government, “Mother, May I?!”

Higher Education’s Accrediting Updates:

As if we’ve not been insulted enough by the DeVos leadership, we also have the President’s EO (Executive Order from 2017) about reforming accrediting bodies when it comes to higher education. DeVos, at her ‘boss’s’ beck and call, has also updated (aka: reformed) higher education. Warriors, again, it’s taken 2 years for this ‘reform’ to hit the States. The U.S. Dept. of Education’s Press Release was even more insulting. DeVos has been ‘rethinking’ higher education reform.
Really, this woman with ZERO educational background?

sadevos

To access the 28 Page document full of DeVos’s ‘thoughts’, go here. Below is a screen shot of the front page with added emphasis.

accredit
While I do recognize we need to rein in predatory accrediting and higher education schools, it should be a locally led charge, not a federally run dictated system.

This Accrediting document even has the same “States must report to the federal government”, as we’ve seen in ESSA. Let’s also take into account that EOs bypass Congress, therefore, bypassing “We the People”. With education, NO federal official, President Trump included, should have power to interfere.
US fed statute

With the HEA (Higher Education Act) currently under re-writing for re-authorization, we know more mandates and compliance will be forced upon the States.

Below, is a graphic image I made back when DeVos had just been confirmed as Secretary of Education. As you’ll see, Dr. King was still around. I left his name so Warriors could see the status quo in the CCSS Machine would live on.

devosarrow

Closing:

Warriors, we MUST Repeal ESSA, HEA, and even, WIOA as soon as possible. If we don’t more DeVos (or whomever’s appointed to take federal education to the next level) reforms will be visited upon us. (*Note: ESSA: Every Student Succeeds Act; HEA: Higher Education Act); WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act))
Do you think our budgets can withstand this type of tyranny? I don’t!

insult

*Two personal notes:
a) While I will continue to do my best to keep you up to date on the overreaches of the CCSS Machine, I also am having to divide my time between education and a recent nasty turn of events concerning my neighborhood. Homes on my block are being targeted to be impacted by a road widening project involving a P3 (public private partnership) contract. We are facing a long and uphill battle to save our homes. As America marches more toward the UN’s (United Nations) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we’ll ALL see this happen more and more.

Clubs and Hubs

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, how would you like to have ‘peace clubs’ and ‘job hubs’ spread across the nation? Sounds great, right?! I mean who doesn’t want a little more tranquility in their lives or access to better jobs?

I’ll tell you who doesn’t want these: US. Why? They are 2 of the latest efforts from our federal government to control us, as American citizens. They are also 2 of the latest efforts to conform America to the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) of the UN/UNESCO.

One Gigantic ‘Peace Club’:

Below is a screen shot from a 2017 article I published with the (then) latest on Peacemaking in the US via HR 1111.
unpackSDG
In 2019, Warriors, we have the SAME Chamber of Congress using the SAME Bill number  (HR 1111) for a newer version to create a Peacemaking Department in the Executive Branch of our government!

What’s the title of this new department to be?
Federal Interagency Committee on Peace (FICP) and it would work in tandem with the U.S. State Dept. and the U.S. Dept. of Defense. The FICP would also establish “Peace Days” across the nation.

Why should we, as Anti Fed Ed/Common Core Warriors, care about HR 1111? The 2019 version has almost as many plans for education related indoctrination as its former version. (2017’s embedded ‘peacemaking’ over 40 times in education; 2019’s is 34.)

peacebuild

Among the 2019’s HR 1111 embedding pieces in schools: is a peacebuilding and tolerance curriculum created by a joint effort of the US Dept. of Peacebuilding and the United States Institute of Peace (USIP). (*Note: if you’d like to see USIP’s stance on several issues, go here. Be sure to look at the ‘experts’, too.)

States will be incentivized to use the developed curriculum in early childhood education and throughout all levels of education. The curriculum will embed peace and tolerance into ALL subjects, including PE (physical education). The Depts. of HHS (Health and Human Services), Homeland Security, and, Education will also help develop the curriculum.

If it’s not in the schools, entire communities and ALL cultural events and programs will use the peace and tolerance curriculum.

Warriors, as we’ve seen with the CCSS Machine, this type of move is to support the all encompassing “Every Student” as in regardless of where you go to school.

Also established with HR 1111 is a higher education academy called the Peace Academy. Students will study 4 years of peacebuilding and upon graduation, serve in public service to promote domestic and international peace. What’s so bad about this? It’s to be modeled after existing military schools!

New Community Peace Building Grants will be made available to go along with existing neighborhood grants. Then, there are to be Culture Diplomacy Grants:

culturedip

Warriors, what you see above is from the Office of Domestic Peacebuilding. The Office for International Peacebuilding will also offer a new type of grant. International Cultural Diplomacy for Peace grants to all the locations the Domestic Office will offer them.

Other scary portions of the 2019 version of HR 1111 include embedding the UN’s Declaration of Human Rights into American law and national activities. You’ll want to see how the Peacebuilding Technology Office will impact how we communicate and farm. You’ll also want to read the Congressional Findings to see how much Congress is relying on UN (United Nations) information. Of course, disarming efforts are worth looking at, too. The Second Amendment may be in danger, yet again. You’ll also want to read Page 41, where the Peace Days are described as well as the legislative power the appointed Secretary for Peacebuilding will have to create or amend laws. (*Note: to see the 24 co-sponsors for HR 1111, go here.)

UNsdg16

Lots of Regional Hubs:

Okay, Warriors, we’re ‘switching gears’, so to speak. Now that you’ve learned about the gigantic peace club Congress wants to turn our nation into, let’s look at the hubs they want to embed among our regions. (By the way, regionalism is also a UN tool. It’s also embedded as an educational mandate in ESSA.)

HR 1995 and S 951 are ‘identical sister bills’ which would create ‘Apprenticeship Hubs’. In fact, the title for both bills is the Apprenticeship Hubs Across America Act (AHAA).
The Senate version is in a Committee and has 4 co-sponsors. (Young, IN; Moran, KS; Brown, OH; and, Jones, AL.) The House version is also in a Committee and has 3 co-sponsors (McKinley, WV; Fitzpatrick, PA; and, Harder, CA.)

Sponsoring the bills are Senator Coons (DE) and Representative Norcross (NJ).

Below are just 7 items both HR 1995 and S 951 would do in education:

apphub

Warriors, also written into this type of regional workforce hub idea is how these apprenticeships are marketed to parents and students by school counselors, job recruiters, and those one-stop-career-centers.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you may remember when I first shared how school counselors were being targeted by the CCSS Machine to sell families and students are career tracks.

edaregions
(EDA’s website)

Warriors, if you’re not sure how toxic the UN regionalism is for America, this 2010 document will help you understand. As you can guess, the alignment has only gotten worse since this publication. To illustrate how bad, consider that tourism is being geared toward the SDGs.

Regionalism will also play right into climate action. Climate action is already deeply embedded in education. If you’ve not heard of the R20, the US is a member. R20 is the Regions of Climate Action. Former CA Gov. Schwarzenegger helped create this global group. The US Government is a partner to R20.

HR 2636 and S 1398, Smart Cities and Communities Act:

Warriors, these two ‘sister’ bills are almost exact copies of each other. HR 2636 is sponsored by Rep. DelBene (WA) and has one co-sponsor (Lujan, NM). S 1398 is sponsored by Sen. Cantwell (WA) and has no co-sponsors. HR’s version of Smart Cities and Communities Act has embedded ‘education’ a total of 18 times. The Senate version has ‘education’ embedded 17 times.

What will the “Smart Cities and Communities” do for education?
1) increase technology which means not only more STEM education, but more screen time for our students.
2)  Puts the federal government in more power over communities across the nation.
3)  Will combine several inter-government joint projects/efforts, as well as P3s and industry overreaches.
4) Will increase the workforce based education, skill based training and award grants to entities participating, at ALL levels of education.
5) Will increase apprenticeship ‘opportunities’.

 

The goal of aligned careeers?? ‘Workforce’ workers.

 

Closing:

Warriors, between the clubs and hubs, our education system is pretty well up a stream without a paddle. It is absolutely mind boggling that Congress is not only willing to do this to our nation, but has no shame in doing so.

What can we do to fight back? Our votes are one way. Look at those supporting all the Bills I’ve featured here. Look at the connections to the CCSS Machine. There are other ways we can fight back. I believe that ANY Congress member participating shamelessly in all this needs a huge dose of humble pie. What do you think, as a Warrior?

Is “Self-Direction” Innovation?

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.)

Warrior Observation:
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.

 

follyfool

 

Self-Direction (AKA: Personalized Learning) is “Innovation”:

Warriors, we KNOW PL (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.

thinknot

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.

deludeded

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.

decright


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’?)

Misused Medicaid:

Warriors, from ND, this screen shot of a 32 page Final Report (Dec. 2018) on Innovation for education.

NDinnovate

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.

tamaranita
(Interview link)

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.

devospub

But, wait, Warriors, Rep. Foxx from NC has also declared what ‘all education’ is, too!

foxxed

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).

From earlier this year, the difference between academics and ‘competency’ on a US/global scale.

What does President Trump think ‘all education’ is? Apprenticeship based (CTE and STEM)!

Closing:

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!

Upcycling ‘Education’

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, Memorial Day Weekend is behind us. We’ve like to think the CCSS Machine’s overreaches in education are behind us, too. However, our 116th Congress has made it THEIR mission to undermine the Americans (in education, at least), yet again.

congressjob

It wasn’t enough they mocked us in the 115th Congress with bills which supposedly were to help education go back to the States, or back to the Moms and Dads.

No, the 116th has ‘upcycled’ 2 bills for ending the federal grasp on education.

upcycle

I imagine you are wondering what rock has hit me on the head. After all, isn’t ending the federal grasp on education what we’ve been fighting for? Dreaming of? Sure it is, HOWEVER, this bills are NO real solution. In fact, they BOTH extend the federal control!

Back during the 115th Congress I exposed how HR 899 and HR 1510 were NOT going to end Common Core or whatever it has been re-branded as in your State. Neither of these were going to end ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) or stop the high-stakes assessments. Neither was going to halt the student data rape or the teacher being free to teach as their students needed it.

Why were HR 899 and HR 1510 incapable of helping us as Anti Fed Warriors? The short answer: Neither repealed ESSA!

The longer answer: By closing the U.S. Dept. of Education BEFORE a full repeal of federal educratic laws like ESSA, the problems in federal overreaches are TRANSFERRED to OTHER Federal agencies and the status quo continues!

(Below was a screen image I made for the article laying out HOW the problems of federally led education were to be split up (transferred).)
cannedroaches

Warriors, I’ve stated this stark reality many times, both on air and here, on the blog. It’s not been taken very well. You must understand that the reality is based on research and the actual bills’ language NOT personal opinion or personal attacks against those who supported HR 899 or HR 1510

The same is true for the ‘upcycle’ versions of the 116th. HR 899 is STILL HR 899, HR 1510 is now HR 1930. While I did report on HR 899 earlier this year, I’ve not covered HR 1930.

The “New” Stuff:

For HR 899, here’s a screen shot from my Part Two of the “Prudence Files”:

new899

For HR 1930 (upcycled HR 1510):

HR15101930
To see HR 1930, go here. The Anti Fed Ed Warrior question you should be asking of these co-sponsors and sponsor: Where in federal law OR found within the U.S. Constitution do you see shell games as legal, responsible, or, in need of taxpayer support?

Throwing Insult To Injury:

Warriors, as if the 116th’s Congressional insults, as to how intelligent we must be to miss their ‘upcycling’ the same agenda, we have the U.S. Census claiming some news about the effect of federal overreaches in education for Americans. The claim? How many of our tax payer dollars go towards American education.

Warriors,
according to the article, the most spending is on teachers. The cost of per pupil spending is nearing $13,000.00 per child. Yet, we have more and more teachers and students in worse shape NOW than ever before! Why? The CCSS Machine is grinding them down to injurious levels!

With the next ‘big’ Census set for 2020, we need to be asking tough questions of Congress on the financial strategy they are supporting here. Given that the U.S. Dept. of Commerce (Home of the U.S. Census Bureau) is set to receive funding to implement FEPA (Foundation of Evidence-based Policy-making Act) data mining activities, we also need to ask how this will play out for our families, come Census taking time.

If you missed my article in late April 2019 about the redesigned Census, I urge you to look at how it will impact your schools and redistricting them, as well as the ultra-personal questions to be answered by American citizens.

If you’ve not seen or heard how the Census measures our schools, you’ll want to read this from their email delivery system. Warriors, it isn’t ‘pretty’.

*Anti Fed Ed Warrior question: How will the Census play into HR 899 and/or HR 1930? In all the transferring of U.S. Dept. of Education programs, funds, and, all related activities, waves of injurious level insults will be visited upon Americans.

Closing:

Warriors, much is being used against us, as parents and taxpayers. More is being planned to harm our students of ALL ages, backgrounds, and, current school status.

We, however, have a choice: Do we accept bills like HR 899 and/or HR 1930 and HOPE we can see an end to the abuse OR do we demand Congress does a better job for We the People and repeal ALL federal education laws?

If Congress wants ‘new’ and ‘improved’ education, then they need to get out of the way. Upcycling worn out bills and CCSS agenda is a waste of our time and energy, as well as our taxpayer dollars.

It is OUR job to hold Congress accountable. It is their job to create laws which represent OUR will, not the CCSS Machine’s mantra.

Otherwise, Congress members do not DESERVE to represent us. Remember THAT, my fellow Warriors, come election time.
