Educratic Semantics: “Competence”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Enter the Word Game surrounding “Competence”:

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

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

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

liechalk

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vocational Education:

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

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

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

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

A German Commissioned Study:

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

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

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

Some Of  The Study’s Points:

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

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

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

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

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

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

votech11

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



Study Warning Bells For Us:

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

Professor Dr. Dieter Euler:

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

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

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

Closing:

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

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

Not-so-Funny Money

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, just a few days ago, I revealed to you how the World Bank is using Social Impact Bonds (SIBs), ‘sin’ taxes, along with other financial tools to help force America into the SDGS (Sustainable Development Goals) of the UN (United Nations).

One such financial tool is called ‘gender bonds (GBs)’. When I asked two of my fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors who happen to be considered experts in both data mining and SIBs, neither had heard of the GBs

Knowing SIBs, BitCoin, and ‘sin’ taxes are connected to the demise in education, these GBs must be as well. So, let’s find out just what GBs will do in education. We’ll also learn if there are any NEW financial tools to be used against us.

clear-as-mud-1

SIBs and BitCoins:

SIBs, Social Impact Bonds, are a form of the ‘pay for success’ scheme used in business, but which as been applied to education via ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). How? Defined student outcomes. In other words the student HAS to be controlled and manipulated to fit a certain ‘outcome’. In ESSA’s case: ‘college and career ready’.
Warriors, did you know ‘outcome’ is a government controlled goal, NOT a personal free will choice?

As I’ve stated before, Alison McDowell’s Wrench in the Gears blog is an excellent resource to understand HOW SIBs are harming education. Alison also can explain the Bitcoin connections to education. (*Note: it has to do with the trail created by data mining (aka ‘student data rape’). 

As Alison points out, the Bitcoins and SIBs, will be used against every American. We’re seeing this type of control used in China. Knowing the UN’s SDGs are involved, we know more than education will be BitCoins and SIBs’s conduit for HOW control is set up. 

I’ve also shared before that the Missouri Education Watchdog’s blog has some excellent information on data mining. This September 2018 article explains the global lust for our student’s personal information. Since Google and global data rapers are at the helm, we know this will meet up with the World Bank and the United Nations, somehow!

(*Note: See page 40 of the World Bank’s “Moving the Needle”. You’ll also see how much American money has already been invested into SIBs.)

Paying For Our ‘Sins’?

As far as ‘sin taxes’ go, the UN’s SDGs want to see excessive use of alcohol and other substances curtailed as much as possible. (Don’t forget the WHO, World Health Organization here!)

So, the World Bank’s plan is to tax the people for using them. What’s more is the ‘sin taxes’ will help fund universal health care and mental health ‘scale-up’ programs. (‘scale up’ is fancy for expansion of government in mental health.)

Now, it is important to note that excessive use of ANY substance should be addressed, but an overall tax across the board isn’t so much about helping fight substance abuse as it is about controlling your free will. Much like the mental health grab by the UN is a back door to taking Second Amendment rights away, this type of taxation will infringe heavily on your Constitutionally and civil rights protected freedoms.
(*Note: Page 40 of the World Bank’s “Needle” shows a sin tax on beverages made with sugar (but not for high fructose corn syrup or other modified sweeteners)!

Questions:
What will this type of heavy handedness do for those who are not excessive or abusive?  What happens when this type of tax is attached to sodas and juices?
Why is it ‘universal health care’? Is this a sign that America will have this socialist system?

Using Gender For Their Agenda:

Warriors, it isn’t new news that the UN’s SDGs use gender against us. In the SDG Toolkit (created in the US back in the early 2000s), you’ll find page after page of how women and the poor are targeted.

While the BS tries to make the reasons WHY these people are targeted sound noble, the real agenda is caddish. The first reason is that the more women or poor people who work, the fewer there will be to raise children. The second reason is that all citizens must work to feed the global economy.

STEMlie
Warriors, spot the irony? American made goods shouldn’t be based on a UN global indoctrination.


What is the main educational tool being used to target women and the poor? STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) and STEAM (all of STEM, plus the Arts).
(*Note: this one article will give you the SDG Tool Kit link, as well as show you the Americans pushing the global STEM moreso than most other citizens.)

So, knowing all this, let’s find out what a GB (Gender Bond) is and how it will impact education.

Warriors, according to the World Bank’s Needle document, Gender Bonds are a type of private sector finance tool, like the SIBs and others above. These type of tools, as we are seeing are being used to drive (or force) social change. Look below:

genderbond.jpg
(You can find the Gender Bond definition and related investment information on Page 35 of the World Bank’s Needle document.) What follows is a timeline of GBs:

NAB, National Australian Bank; March 2017, becomes the first to issue gender bonds. The reason? Workforce equality. NAB also has a “Male Champion of Change” program. According to NAB’s 2017 “Towards 2020” document, education and P3s (public private partnerships) will help genders get ahead. NAB is also a UN Global Compact member, since 2010.

Asian Development Bank (ADB), in November 2017(to support their 1990s Policy on Gender), invested mega bucks into gender bonds for Asian and Pacific countries. ADB is tied to UNESCO. Women’s and girls education is mentioned 43 times in the ADB’s 2013 Gender Policy document.

December 2017, the Wall Street Journal wrote about the Gender Bonds as a way to be ‘socially responsible’ (as well as a way to help end sexual harassment). Back in 2014, the Journal partnered with MSN (Microsoft) News to poll America on Common Core. (*Note: as we know, Microsoft is a huge UN member/supporter. What you may not know is that the Wall Street Journal is owned by the Dow Jones and Company. Dow Jones is a partner of the World Bank. Especially in the SDGs.)

June 2018, Turkey’s Gender Bonds with the help of Goldman Sachs 10K Women program. (The education tie comes through global business courses at partnering institutions.) Warriors, I have at least 4 articles on how Goldman Sachs is part of the CCSS Machine (Common Core State Standards Machine).

Doing The DIB:

DIBs (Development Impact Bonds) are a new type of World Bank financial tool. These bonds will be much like the SIBs, but will mature between 3-10 years. DIBs also center around ‘result driven approaches’ when it comes to social issues. In educratic speak it’s known as ‘best evidenced practice’; aka: subjective research and methods). You’ll find almost no information on DIBs in the World Bank’s document because these bonds are still undergoing changes before being unleashed. Do watch for these, though. Education will certainly be in the mix.

The UN’s Women’s Movement:

First, off, before we get to WHAT the UN’s got in mind, I’m sure you’ve had a burning question or two about gender bonds.

As of this article, the only real focus by the UN has been for women and/or the poor. How ‘poor’ is a gender, I do not know.

However, you’ve seen and read the evidence.

Are there any gender bonds for men? What about those who aren’t sure of their gender or have decided to NOT have a gender? Where will these people be placed by the UN?
No matter if you agree with the ‘gender bending’ going on or not, people are people and we all need protecting from the UN’s control freakish system. The UN screams ‘tolerance’ but is breeding massive amounts of discrimination!

Warriors, SDG #5 is Gender Equality. It’s where the GBs fit in. If you’ve not seen the SDG #5 targets, read here.

If you missed the new 2018 Gender Guidelines, you’ll ‘love’ learning about them. The Guidelines will use gender to tie to climate change. The World Bank’s “Needle” document will feature a little on Green Bonds. Near Page 40. Green bonds are geared for sustainable ‘green’ energy and climates.)

If you missed the 2015 World Economic Forum piece on why gender is so vital to the SDGs, read it.

Lastly, from 2002, the World Bank tackled the question about gender and the SDGs (although back then the SDGs had another name).

To cut through the global doublespeak, the reason why gender is so key to the success of the SDGs is IF we can stop the unfairness between men and women, we’ll treat our environment better. IF we treat the environment better, we’re well on our way to a peaceful world.

It’s as if the UN is telling us, if you and your spouse can stop fighting, then your grass will grow better. If the grass is greener, then your peace will be at hand. Yeah, right..Sounds like the UN believes everyone just fell off the turnip truck. (That’s Southern for not very smart.)

BS-Meter

Closing:

Warriors, as I shared with you in the “Wicked Web”, the very leaders who have pledged to END America’s union with the UN are NOT living up to that pledge. In fact, the Administration has strengthened the UN/US union.

We MUST, I repeat, MUST enforce the free will of the people. That will? To remain Americans, to rid education of government, and to STOP seeing mountains made out of molehills as the UN has done to us for years.
