By Association

Greetings, my fellow anti Fed Ed Warriors and anti Globally Led Education Warriors!

Recently, while discussing the state of American education via 2 interviews, the topic of internationally based teaching groups surfaced. I thought it might be a great time to check up and see exactly what some of the latest moves are.
Knot-figure-of-eight-knit-clipart-etc

ICYMI:

Warriors, here are my archived articles exposing the American ties from teachers unions/groups to those of international status. With ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) being set into place, these ties are super important to keep up with. Why? The shift in American education is globally supported!

June 2017: global ‘data raping’ of our students
February 2017: AFT(American Federation of Teachers) and NEA’s (National Education Association’s) ties to EI (Education International). EI is a heavily tied group to the UN (United Nations), as well as the largest global teachers union.
March 2016: global overreach into home education

the-capitol-view-return-to-sender-snqyhq-clipart

“Global rhetoric has preached for years that education is a right and therefore MUST be given. The only problem with this logic is what is mandated (or in this case a ‘must’) is also controlled.” (source)

Here’s a “New” One:

Warriors, unlike the groups to follow, this particular ‘new’ group was one I was able to tie to the Texas Bush family (as in two former presidents). Now, we’ve known for quite some time Jeb Bush (former Governor of Florida and currently leading FEE {Foundation for Excellence in Education}) has sold our nation out to the CCSS Machine (Common Core State Standards Machine), but we’d be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge his Dad’s  (President George Bush (1)) selling Americans out to the NWO (New World Order), which has increased the amount of global overreach in education!

His speech from 1991, second paragraph
His video clip from 1991, promising a ‘new world order’

You might be wondering how the NWO fits into American education. Take a look at the former leader of the UN, Robert Muller.

mullercore2
A former UN leader’s words from years ago.

IS it any wonder Jeb is supportive of globally led education? However, Jeb’s not the lone Bush in the CCSS Machine. I found the NAFSA: Association of International Educators (NAFSA is short for National Association of Foreign Student Advisers)

Updates From Those Other Global-to-American Education Groups:

In no particular order, here are the updates I could find on globally led groups overreaching into American classrooms.

IREX’s TGC (Teachers Global Classrooms):
Worth over $80 million dollars, this global teachers group works in over 100 countries. Founded in 1958 as a supportive group to uphold an education co-operation between President Eisenhower (who ‘gave’ America ESEA and HEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act; Higher Education Act, respectively) and Premier Khrushchev. IREX is short for International Research & Exchanges Board. CCSS Machine member organization, Ford Foundation was among the chief funding streams and supporters of IREX. (*Note: Ford Foundation is huge in supporting the UN-led STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) as well as the CCSS’s arm, CTE (Career Tech Education). Ford Foundation has also back the American Apprenticeship Programs created by President Obama. The AAPs are CTE/STEM/CCSS aligned.) To learn more about the IREX history, read it here. To see how connected to the UN, IREX is, read the proof here.

So how ‘global’ is IREX’s TGC? Look below:

IREXgoals
How tied to America is IREX? The U.S. Dept. of State in only ONE of the US groups involved. (*Note: you’ll find the U.S. Dept. of State and other American groups in IREX’s history.) How involved in the CCSS Machine is the U.S. Dept. of State? Very much so! (*Note: look for the paragraph header “Enter the State” in the above link.) You’ll also need to look at the IREX tie to Fulbright Scholars/Teachers for more CCSS Machine ties.

CIES (Comparative and International Education Society):
This global group is a collection of scholars who focus on “schools, students, teachers and administrators, and on issues spanning early childhood and basic education to secondary and higher education, as well as non-formal education and life-long learning.”

ciesclip

This Society recently wrapped up its 2018 international conference where north and south met. (North as in USA, South as in Mexico). The topic “Re-Mapping Education”. Helping CIES was Columbia University (USA). A conference message from the 2017 CIES President was also given. The former President? A professor from Loyola University Chicago. CIES’s executive director comes from Florida International University.
Among the sponsors? Teach for All and USAID (US Agency for International Development; look for the paragraph header “USAID’s In It, Too”), big CCSS Machine member organizations. (*Note: you’ll find all this type of information in the embedded program link above.)

To access the Universal Basic Education 2011 pdf, go here.

Nothing beats a trained mind, right?

GAML (Global Alliance to Monitor Learning):
This Alliance is completely dedicated to adhering to AND bringing to fruition the SDG (Sustainable Development Goal) #4: Global Education for All. How? It’s an arm of the UN, itself! Their latest information dates to late 2017. Access all the alignment here. If you’d like to see the latest information on how well global education (via assessments) is progressing, you’ll want to see and read the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) document using ‘social moderation’ and assessments. (*Note: from what I was able to glean, ‘social moderation’ is tied to competency and/or proficiency.)

If you’d like to see the UIS’s planned use for ‘student data rape’ information, read this.

EI (Education International):
Warriors
, this is the organization I told you about which the NEA (National Education Association) and the AFT (American Federation for Teachers) have joined to support the global shift in education from real academics to workforce training.

(*Note: Both Unions were congratulated by Sen. Lamar Alexander as being key ‘players’ in getting ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act, passed into law. ESSA is full of workforce training mandates/assessments in proficiency and CBE.)

Global Education Symposium (GES):
Warriors
, just take a look at the obviousness of UN’s STEM presence:

(Source)

Among the GES Global Partners you’ll find mental health groups, teacher development, and, more. Find out more, please! Among the US Universities which will be represented are FSU (Florida State University)and Brigham Young University (BYU).
You’ll also find Teach for All’s participation.

Closing:

Okay, my followers and fellow Warriors, there you have it. The march toward globally united education is narrowing its circle around us. How much more will we take as Americans before we strike back and remove ourselves, especially our children from this assimilation to global competency when Americans could be so MUCH more?!

Please note, these groups are NOT the only globally aligned ones we should be watching. Just as we should note that our current Trump led Administration is not aiding us in stopping this tidal wave of educational doom.

By Degrees

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, Anti Global Ed Warriors, and concerned Americans everywhere:

You’ve seen massive amounts of research exposing the continued push to have American education become the United Nations’ (UN) education. The main way this has been accomplished so far (and will increase in use) is STEM/STEAM/STREAM.

bones-say-it
STEM, by way of Common Core..and not in a distant galaxy.

No matter how many letters are added to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), it is ALL directly from the United Nations and their SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). If you have a family member, friend, associate, or neighbor who needs to see the many connections proving this, I’m embedding a general link to all my articles on STEM/STEAM/STREAM. (*Note: there are several pages of articles, so take some time to scroll through them to find exactly what may be needed.)


Some “New” STEM Evidence:

Warriors, in doing some research, I found a Fall 2015 article we need to know about.  It’s called  The Emerging 360 Degree Model for Global Citizenship Education”.

Before we look at the ups and downs of this research, take a look at how you and I should ‘stack up’ as global  citizens:

globalcitizenchart
(You can open the image in a new tab to see it bigger if needed. You may also use the zoom feature on your computer’s tool bar.)

Warriors, to have an image like this, we need to understand experiments were conducted with students to gather the data to create a visual result!

Where were the experiments based out of? Boise State University in Boise, Idaho.
How connected to the UN is Boise State University? Very!
Model UN Assemblies are the tip of the global iceberg.
BSU is also a member of the AASCU (American Association of State Colleges and Universities) which is a UN Partner in Education.
If you’d like to see other BSU STEM related research, go here.

BSU, like many universities and colleges, has international partners for exchange programs/students.
(*Note: when you access the embedded link ‘member’ look on Page 7 for the mention of KY’s “Core” Standards for PreK to 12th data mining.)

Below, is a screen shot from BSU’s Institute for STEM.

BSUstem

The 2015 Report’s Language:

Page 1: STEM will ‘offer tremendous opportunities’ for solving global poverty and improving health care. Warriors, STEM certainly will because STEM is the way the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) are carried out in education!
SDG #1 is “No Poverty”, SDG# 3 is “Good Health and Well Being”. Look below to see what else Page 1 stated:

emerging360
You’ll also see (on Page 1)  P3s (public private partnerships) are stressing we need to become global. Especially the P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills), which is most definitely a CCSS Machine member group.

Page 2: Reveals it’s imperative we educate students for globalization. Why? They can better understand the world. If they understand the world, they can fix the world’s problems. From Page 2 into Page 3, why health care needs to become STEM oriented. (It already is via the Career Clusters from Common Core.) (*Note” the embedded short video you’ll find when you click on “Career Clusters” is from TX, where the State supposedly didn’t have Common Core. However, TX had Common Core in the form of CTE, Career Tech Education and STEM.)

stempbl1
Make NO mistake: it has been a calculated plan for STEM and Common Core to be directly related.

Page 3: Global citizens can better economics for everyone, especially when they can ‘leverage collective assets’. You’ll find IPSL (International Partnership for Service Learning) also on Page 3. IPSL is a B Corporation (social benefit). B Corporations are usually big on social justice. Social justice is a huge component of the UN’s SDGs.
Many B Corporations are CCSS Machine members, too. (*Note: as an example, look at EFP (Education Funding Partners) ) Back in 2016, I exposed the AltSchool’s B Corporation status. Part of AltSchool’s classroom ‘setup’? Willy nilly style.

Page 4: the Global 360 Education Model is rigorous, progressive for real world problem solving. (Doesn’t this just sound like recycled pitches for Common Core?!)
Oh, also let’s not forget to overlook the ‘competency’ involved. You’ll see that on Page 4 as well.

Page 5: Global citizens should have ‘open minds’ especially while ‘actively seeking’. I guess the truth about having such an open mind leading to danger is lost in the CCSS Machine’s translation. “Preparing NextGen Leaders” also needs open minds full of STEM skills.

openbrain

Included on Page 5 of BSU’s research is the fact that in 2012, they partnered with Peacework. Peacework is a non profit global organization in full support of innovation (aka technology) and the SDGs. This non profit is based in VA and is 25 years old. (Be sure to see which educational and corporate groups are helping align Peacework to the CCSS Machine.

You will also see the Global Competency Aptitude Assessment is on Page 5 as well.
(*Note: the Global Competency Aptitude Assessment has a sister site for Global Competency Consulting. GCAA will be happy to help you can become a certified Globally Competent Practitioner.) The Consulting group’s goal is to prepare the global workforce.
globallycompetent

Warriors, here’s an excerpt from Page 5 about STEM and health-care,
” Within the context of STEM and health-science education, global competencies must include sensitivities to the social, cultural, political, ethical, and moral impacts of science, technology, and health-science and/or engineering-based global solutions (Conway, 2000; Currier, 2009; MBugua, 2010).”

Let that sink in for a moment. Who gets to decide which ‘sensitivities’ to include? Who gets to decide if these ‘sensitivities’ are in agreement with those being taught. As our government gets more and more STEM in our lives, we’ll see more legislation (like some I’ve recently shown you) where the families will have to kowtow to the government assigned health imperatives. (*Note: when you click on ‘you’, scroll down to the Mental Health in Schools Act section.)

citizenhealth
(The article where you’ll find the screen shot above.)

Pages 6-7 will detail how the learning process will shift to create global citizens. Four tools are used. Constructivism (where ‘critical thinking’ is inserted); interdisciplinary learning (where group projects are inserted); transformational leaders (where facilitating is used in place of teaching); and, international service-learning (think glorified indentured servitude). Helping put all this into action? International partnerships.

Pages 8 through 11 lay out the methods, findings, discussion, and conclusion of the Boise State University study. Be sure to read the comments made by the students.

Since the BSU Study:

Warriors, as far as BSU itself, the global citizen march lives on. Just like it is ramping up in every grade level, college or not. You’ll find global citizen courses for business, too.
Below is just a small sample of what’s out there.

globalcitsearch

To access the Council for Foreign Relations Report, visit here.
To access the Global Citizen Initiative’s Global Citizen Rights and Responsibilities page, that’s here. Also, here is an archived article I wrote featuring the Initiative’s scorecard on America’s push for global citizenry.
To see the course from Hong Kong, find that here. You’ll also want to click on ‘home’, where you’ll see Common Core in the upper right hand corner.
To see the Global Sourcing Council’s article on adhering to the World Economic Forum’s global citizen definition, that is here.

If you’d like to see the other World Economic Forum resources for defining global citizens, this one is from 2014 and appears to uphold the need to be global to help cut down on the cost of communications. In 2015, the conversation shifted to international ID cards and data tracking needed to ‘help’ global citizens. From March 2018, being global citizens means our ‘trust’ factor will be restored.

Warriors, according to this article ‘trust’ is the most important ‘pro-social’ attitude we can have. Since when did ‘trust’ become an attitude?! Trust, by classical definition is part of your moral character. I guess we can thank the CCSS Machine’s English Language Arts for destroying definitions.

The Shift To Global Ed In America Is Older Than You Realize:

Warriors, from 2016, my in-depth look at “My State in the World” where you’ll see MN, NC, MI, and, other States (as well as their schools) were compromised. This article features many resources from trusted Anti Fed Ed/Global Ed Warriors.

Closing:

Warriors, while we know this systematic take over of our education and lives continues, we also DO have a choice. Use the information to help others ‘wake up’. Since STEM has even infiltrated EVERY school choice, including home education, we must eliminate it from ALL curriculum, ALL community wide events celebrating it. We CAN teach each of these subjects without the UN’s influence!
STEM is NOT your friend, it is NOT America’s savior; STEM is a tool from enemies who do not love freedom.

Speaking Out

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we know sometimes we JUST have to speak out. 
This weekend’s news is a quick recap of my most recent speaking out moments.

USdistress
From March 31st’s Breaking News Journal Marathon:

Warriors, if you missed this CO based broadcast, the topic was all about how the current trend of school violence, student and teacher self-harm, and death are impacting us. There was also much discussion about why kids bully each other, as well as many thoughts on how to positively stop this kind of movement in our nation. If you wish to listen to the entire broadcast, it’s about 4 hours. If you are interested in my portion, you’ll find it near the 2:10:00 time stamp. It ends about the 2:45:30 time stamp.

Basically, I hold the federal government, the global push for CBE (Competency Based Education), and, the CCSS Machine at fault for the violence, self-harm, bullying, and, death. Sure, each of these things were present in our nation’s schools BEFORE Common Core (or whatever else your State has re-branded it since ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act), BUT, Common Core and all the insane amounts of pressure to achieve a ‘perfect score’ has come at a price our families should never have had to pay.

My Own Videos:

On April 5th, I recorded two homemade videos to raise the Warrior’s ire over the global push to indoctrinate our students. The moment which pushed me to record videos? Uncovering a UN (United Nations) created board game to target our youngsters to become better ‘global citizens’.
(*Note: The specific game information I shared in the above embedded link is just above the ‘closing’ portion of one of my latest articles.)

To access the 2 videos, use the links below:
Video #1 is about 30 minutes.
Video #2 is near 15 minutes.

I will point out that while I’d scheduled a live event on Facebook for the first presentation, the audio to my live feed was shut off. So, in a hurry, I grabbed the cell phone. I also gave a wrong date for the Gates/UN agreement. The correct date was 2004, not 2014. Those ‘hiccups’ aside, the information shared is what truly matters. 

mullercore
When did ‘reinventing education’ become code for Common Core?

Related:

Warriors, if we simply stop at 2004’s Gates/UN agreement, we are cheating ourselves of some crucial evidence which points out that the global push for CBE and 2030 Agenda (formerly Agenda 21) predates the agreement to have a ‘one world curriculum’.

Closing:

Please, share what’s above. Even the embedded links. The march of ruinous overreach by the UN into the US is surviving everyday we do nothing to stop it. Use what time you would of reading a well researched article of mine and devote it to sharing the priceless information so we, together, can save our nation and her children.

Global, Smobal?!

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we know there are continued links between ‘federally led education’ and globally led education. We also know these ties which lie between education and our communities are deeply embedded. To that end, I’m using ‘global, smobal’. The “global” is self defining. The “smobal”? My take on ‘small town gone global’.

The manifestations of these ties are easily found in the UN’s (United Nations’s) SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), as well as the American laws:
WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014), ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015), HEA (Higher Education Act, currently being re-written), and any other law which combines any of the above.

Thanks to many Anti Fed Ed Warriors and many other Anti Global Education Warriors, we’ve been able to see what programs are being used to breed so much collectivism. As we know, the UN’s SDGs use education as the single most important ‘change agent’ to infiltrate our towns and cities. (Source for image below)

toolkitblurb

What do some of the activities look (or sound) like to bring the UN’s desired alignments to fruition? I have a few examples below:

Global, Smobal: Part One:

Warriors, recently I was in Georgia attending to family business. While helping out, I found myself in a doctor’s office where I picked up a local magazine. The magazine was all about the arts and culture of the area. As I was thumbing through the pages, I stumbled upon an article about a county at the opposite end of the State, where the citizens are finding Career Clusters as a great unifier for them.

One of the reasons this particular magazine was featuring the far away county? Since it appears to be such a great success in one rural area of Georgia, it can be an equal success somewhere very similar in another part of Georgia.

barrow
See how the local magazine’s writer ‘sold’ the Career Clusters Pathway alignment:

barrow2

(Source for the article, see page 99 and those immediately following)

To learn about the Georgia county featured, go here. Notice on Page 6, the amount of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) aligned workforce education, as well as those ‘wonderful’ Career Clusters. Note that the County’s schools are charter ones. Notice among the community unifying buildings is a new innovative amphitheater. By sheer coincidence, the area I was visiting had just completed their new amphitheater.

Global Smobal, Part Two:

Also, in the same magazine, another article about a multi state effort to join businesses and education. This effort is geared more for adults than the previous article, where students are the main focus. To find that article, go to page 93 and those immediately following. Below, is a screen shot of one of the pages:

domistation

If you’d like to learn about the STEMIE Coalition, (STEMIE stands for ‘Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math linked to Invention and Entrepreneurship’) 
STEMIE is based in CT with leaders in CA, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, MA, NH, OH, OK, SC, TN, and TX).
It was the AL based
Champion Network (link is in the above screen shot) which helped STEMIE Coalition get started. Visit STEMIE.

Warriors, the ‘global smobal’ here that this new type of business and education collaboration is a direct product of STEM. The purpose of the ‘teamwork’? Redefining how communities work.
Below is a screen shot of the early 2000s Tool Kit education-for-sd-tool-kit-fully-highlighted-1.

(*Note: this article is just one where I give you more context for the Tool Kit.)


sdgp67

As we know, STEM is a UN directive contained within the SDGs. The redefining of our communities? That’s straight out of the SDG Tool Kit. How does STEM tie to the Career Clusters? Read the ‘research’ behind STEMIE. The free K-12th grade curriculum for STEMIE? Aligned to the Common Core, Next Generation Science Standards and, is based off the PAST Foundation’s framework for education.

PAST Foundation is based in OH, but is an international group devoted to project based learning combining STEM and anthropology to prepare for 21st Century careers. PAST’s public private partnerships are what make this twist on STEM ‘work’. Warriors, as we know, the increase of P3s (public private partnerships) was a mandate of ESSA, the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Global Smobal #3:

April 21st, 2018, my local town newsletter is advertising the Global Youth Service Day. According to the town’s information, this workday is the only one devoted to children (ages 6 to 18). What type of projects will be completed? Local service projects to benefit the collective community.

globalsmobalmville

If you want to see how sold out to the UN’s SDGs the YSA (Youth Servicing America) is, look below:

ysasdg

Warriors, if you access @YouthSDGs (Twitter), you’ll find a tweet where the 17 Sustainable Development Goals reveal 169 targets throughout them. You’ll also find how targeted our youth are to achieve the collectivism of  it all.

Remember, these are woven into education across America! Regardless of where you go to school.

youthsdg


More Global, Less Local:

Warriors, look below at this screen shot of the March 2018  ISO Technical Committee for Asset Management Systems Report on attaining the SDGs through good management of your organization’s assets. For our context, think your city budget and city employees:

moneymanagesdg

As if high-jacking the city budget isn’t bad enough, check out the SDG 2030 Board Game you can use to teach your kids! (*Note: you will be asked to register to download the game, board, dice pattern, and, questions. They will appear on your computer has zip files.)

sdgboard

Warriors, in what other ways are your businesses, towns and schools working together in these types of ways? What about the rural Americans? How are they being encircled? Look around you, my friends!

Closing:

Warriors, if you haven’t seen the connection of all the UN/SDGs and STEM to your country’s demise at the hands of the CCSS Machine, I hope this article has helped shed some light on the dastardly wicked deceptions going on in education. We are well on our way to being that ‘STEM nation with a STEM people for a STEM economy with STEM jobs’ for a global good which was inserted in America during the previous administration. Presently, no stopping this global dagger which pierces our hearts has been given by the current administration.

Be Sure To Tune In

Fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors,
  Does the featured image look familiar? We know the digital push for our families is at an all-time high. We’ve certainly seen the research on too much screen time and the damages laid upon our students when they are on their computers. But, what about the stealthy moves by those TV networks to not only draw students in, but entire families?

The type of shows being used? CCSS aligned education, for sure. Wrapped up as fun? More than likely. Adventures? Maybe. Indoctrinating plots or themes? You bet. The trouble is, you’ll never notice IF you’re not informed.

No, I’ve not recently read “1984”, but we all may as well of. “Big Brother” is snooping through our homes already. If you’ve got a Smart Meter for electricity; a Smart TV; a Smart kitchen appliance; and, most especially if your student has a school issued laptop. For those who home educate or take virtual classes? It’s a safe bet to know you’re ‘watched’ as well.

So, why would I bring up TV networks? Does this have to do with the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandate that no student would be denied 24/7, 365 days a year access to quality digital on-line learning resources? I believe it does, 100%. In late 2017, I shared with you how Saturday morning TV had been totally transformed from simple cartoon fun to education.

If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know the tie between the major media companies, especially Silicon Valley venture capitalists in major media (ex: Netflix), have a massive game plan to reinvent education. It’s well it the works. Part of the plan is to totally shift away from people on school boards. Another part? Totally computer (and/or) TV driven education. Netflix is hardly alone, there’s Google, Verizon, Amazon, and scores of others ‘hot’ in technology and cannot wait to infiltrate our families with ‘education’.

Enter Quest TV:

While most of the attention for TV indoctrination has been obvious on cable and satellite TV, what about good, old-fashioned antenna TV? Warriors, if you have an antenna and receive PBS (Public Broadcasting System), that’s a start. But what about your local CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, or, other networks?

What I’ve found is that they, too, are opening up channels on your antenna feed exclusively for education-that-doesn’t-feel-like-education-but-is. Especially for STEM. One such channel? Quest TV. This one is fairly new (at least in my neck of the woods). It’s 24/7 access to ‘entertain and inform’. Simply look at the leaders behind Quest TV and you have to wonder no more about the intent. Former leaders from NBC (US and globally), National Geographic, Discovery Channel, ABC, and, Kraft. Warriors, every single one of these groups is a CCSS Machine member. What’s worse is that every one of these uses the UN-driven STEM as well.

While all that seems bad enough, what we should also consider is the presence of a former leader of SyncSense. What’s that? Look below at a screen shot from their website:

syncsense

If you cannot read the description of Syncsense in the picture, “When audiovisual content spikes the brain, you’ve captured the viewer’s attention. We optimize content to drive spikes or brain synchronization-without changing the creative. SyncScore then measures the effectiveness of media elements causing those spikes.”

If you’re not exactly sure what the ‘brain spikes’ and data mining mean? Think:
attention grabbing and retaining information, which keeps you coming back to watch more TV. (a 2013 article explains this). Another article explains that the reason these brain spikes are so important is due to the fact we see and hear, so taking in information in short visual bursts is ideal.

Apply this concept to all the computer time students have thanks to the CCSS Machine. If you’d like more research into the how and why this type of activity happens in the human brain, visit this blog.

Warriors, while it is fantastic how our brains are wired, it is terrible how the CCSS Machine has turned that into manipulation!

Warriors, is it any wonder the shift in TV is so successful? I know many researchers have studied this topic for years, but add to it the digital learning, global push and it indeed spells massive trouble for entire families, not just students! Notice that some of the same groups in the CCSS Machine also are clients of SyncSense.

syncclient

SyncSense also has analytical clients. Among them, Peace Corps! If you wish to learn about the founder and other key data mining partners are in SyncSense, go here.

Enter the NIH (National Institutes of Health):

Warriors, did you know the NIH, back in 2014, had a research article exposing CCSS was BAD for students? Here’s the excerpt:

“Today, the US government, facing numerous educational failures, has developed the Core Curriculum, which proposes to address the needs of all students (5). The Core Curriculum assumes children have homogeneous gifts and weaknesses and, thus, applies one standard for all students. Yet, we are learning that this is absolutely the wrong approach.”

Yet, in the same article, it cited that ‘critical thinking’ is a ‘must’ for education. Warriors, as we know the CCSS Machine’s ‘critical thinking’ is not true critical thinking. The CCSS version is about ‘what to think’ not ‘how to think’.

Fast forward to today, and the NIH is EVEN more involved in education. Why? ESSA (as a law) increased the choke hold on education by the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services. NIH is a key part of the HHS.

Conflicting “Evidence” From the NISCE:

In 2013, the NISCE (National Institute for Student-Centered Education) held a “Learning and Brain” Conference. During this Conference, it was widely shared and taught that CCSS was GOOD for neuroscience and student’s brains.

learningbrainLink to the NISCE Conference article.
Link to the Pearson Publishing article.

Warriors, if you are not sure what the NISCE does, it is an arm of the Schools for Children, Inc. According to the homepage for NISCE, their goal is the center of education being students, not tests or politics. While I can find no activity for NISCE beyond 2015, take a look through their website’s search results for “Common Core”. You’ll see 21st Century schools/skills and more.

If you’re not sure what Schools for Children, Inc. does, look below:

s4cIf you cannot read the words, basically Schools for Children, Inc. puts students needs first. Then, fills educational gaps. Followed by your school leaders receiving the right professional development. Then, the families and communities are factored in for a quality education. HOWEVER, read the SfC history and you’ll find the roots are in CBE (competency based education) via skill based learning. Be sure to read all three pages of the history. You should see the CCSS Machine agenda woven throughout it, just not by name.

Listed among the ‘Educator Resources’ for Schools for Children, Inc. is the ASCDNAIS, and the ISTE (*Note: ASCD is short for Association of School Curriculum Developers; NAIS is short for National Association of Independent Schools; ISTE is short for International Society of Technology in Education.)

Closing:

Warriors, make no mistake, during school hours or outside them. The CCSS Machine is after every one of us. What can you do? Unplug the TV and spend a family night watching the stars, having a pillow fight, or just hanging out. Instead of tuning in, try tuning out the indoctrination and fodder of the global grab for our brains.

One of my most distinct messages I’ve created to express my ire toward the CCSS Machine.

 

Using ‘Crisis’ To Drive Agenda

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I do believe our current Congress has reached an all-time low with the pair of federal derived education bills, S 1421 and HR 3828.

Both are titled the Patsy T. Mink Gender Equity in Education Act. Both claim the purpose of the legislation is to protect citizens from sexual inequality. But, what if, hidden in plain sight of these 2 bills is an agenda for aligned education? The savior for protecting us? STEM (as in Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math)!!

Personal note: I am in no way advocating sexual inequality nor do I promote sexual harassment. However, if we are to have important legislation protecting our citizens could we POSSIBLY leave the UN’s (and CCSS Machine’s) STEM out of it?!

Make NO mistake: it has been a calculated plan for STEM and Common Core to be directly related.


The Legislation:
S 1421’s
link 
HR 3828’s
link
(*Note: The Senate’s version was introduced in June 2017; the House’s in Sept. 2017. Both are in their respective Education and Labor Committees.)

 

The Lady:

Warriors, if you are not sure who Patsy T. Mink was, she was a very important leader from HI. She is basically the mother of Title 9. When Title 9 was much younger, it was created so that women and girls would have equal access to sports.
It’s only been in recent years that Title 9 has been reworded to NOW cover anyone who feels sexually left out of education.

Mrs. Mink was also key in President Johnson’s Great Society legislative campaign. She served twice on the U.S. House’s Education and Workforce Committee, helped begin Head Start and, so much more. (*Note: it was President Johnson who ‘gave’ us the original ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) now ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act)

Sadly, though, Warriors, Head Start has been CCSS aligned for a while. The Education and Workforce Committee is a ‘lock, stock, and, barrel’ member of the CCSS Machine.

As far as the ‘Great Society’, we see those ties are being used for much of the social justice movement, also a key part of the CCSS Machine AND UN’s SDGs (United Nations Sustainable Development Goals) agenda. STEM, is a direct product to help drive education to these social justice ends.

The Language:

Warriors, the entire purpose of these twin Bills is this:
“To support educational entities in fully implementing title IX and reducing
and preventing sex discrimination in all areas of education.”
Sadly, it takes 24 pages to explain what the ‘support’ means.


On Page 2 of the Senate’s Bill version, you’ll see the National Women’s Law Center is mentioned. NWLC has helped former President Obama’s data mining pay scale initiative to get off the ground. They’ve also helped wage a major educational disparities campaign (again with the work and support of the White House).

The NWLC also has successfully forced in-depth and precisely detailed ‘student data rape’ to continue. Why? The more details the more we can level the playing field.

If the NWLC would look at the massive data mining in this way (as many of those of us in the War Vs the Core) they may realize just how serious accessing private student information is.

Did you know the NWLC also was key in getting Early Head Start and Head Start funds in ESSA? Also, those community development block grants which will fund the 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Promise Neighborhoods, and, more?

These were all also mandated in ESSA.

The last NWLC item we Warriors need to know is that they are funded by some of the biggest CCSS Machine members. The truth can be seen beginning on Page 18 of their last Annual Report.

On Page 3 of S 1421, another group is mentioned: The American Association of University Women. According to AAUW’s last Annual Report,  they regularly fund STEM programs at local levels! From their website, you can find CCSS Machine corporate partners.

aauw

Warriors, how many times do we have to find out that our Congress is listening to the big bucks, not the everyday citizens?! 

While S 1421 and HR 3828 are exact copies, what can we see embedded from the House’s copy?
Page 3 “STEM Pipeline” used to describe the workforce aligned shift. (Scroll back up to what this really means)
Page 4, NSF (National Science Foundation), again more CCSS Machine/UN endorsed agenda skewing the truth.
Page 4, The Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network’s Report information is used as justification. The GLSEN is also heavily back by key CCSS Machine member groups (for example: Wells Fargo, the Walt Disney Company, Target, and, many others)

10389690_773525136032161_985265226383217614_n
Corporations tied to CCSS do NOT represent the people’s voice. 

More Fed Ed Power:

Warriors, the Equity Act being considered in DC hasn’t seen much action that We the People have been made aware of, but, before we assume this type of action will go away, we need to consider that any of the DC bills I’ve been studying could be rolled out anytime now..or, in the future. We’ve seen it happen way too many times in the past.

We also need to consider that embedded in BOTH bills is room for more federal funding to dictate what happens at State and local levels in education; that the Dept of Education will expand to ensure ‘equity’ is achieved. This will show up in anti-bullying, ‘safe schools’, and other ‘wrap around’ services. Every single one of these were mandated in ESSA using Title 1 funds. However, other Title funds would now be COMBINED to align learning to, not an equity-like level, but to a ‘one-way-to-learn-so-you-can-earn system’.

Related:
Back in 2016, I revealed to you the Gender Intelligence going on in education. It’s tied to Pearson Publishing, the Clinton Global Initiative, the STEM of the UN, and, more! (*Note: Mrs. Mink was also a part of President Clinton’s team.)

Closing:

Warriors, these tactics are directly taken from the UN-inspired SDG Toolkit created in the US back in the early 2000s. I’ve shared this Toolkit many times.

We need to understand that S 1241 and HR 3828 use ‘equity’. Both use ‘equality’. We’ve seen how the two are NOT the same, do not mean the same, and, should not be interchangeably used! Yet, bill after bill from the federal level continues to use double speak.
If you want to know WHY there’s an especially great level of misinformation with ‘equity’ and ‘equality’? My 2014 article will give you a fantastic place to look. (*Note: just in case the link embedded in that archive doesn’t work, here it is again.)

Policy Over Law

Hello, my fellow Anti CCSS/Fed Ed Warriors!

In today’s article, I’ll be exposing a set of  bills from D.C. where education policy is being exalted over education law. The irony is, the legislation COULD become law in the end.

We’ve seen countless of CCSS Machine examples of ‘policy’ being made more important than the laws created. Congress, is also top notch at confusing policy and law; or at least that’s how it is looking.

policynotlaw

Let’s review quickly though, what the differences between the two really are.

Policy is an interpretation of a law or laws. Policy is something anyone can create in response to an existing law or laws. Policy should not be binding. Policies are usually ‘bought and paid for’ ideas posing as powerful regulations.

Laws are binding. Laws must follow a precise order to be created and applied. Laws are not for sale. Laws are powerful regulatory documents. Laws are binding.

*****************************************************************

Meet the STEM ‘Sisters’ Policy Bills:

Warriors, S 1270 and HR 2653 are currently sitting in the Senate HELP and House’s Science, Space, and Technology Committees respectively. The shared name of the bills? “STEM Opportunities Act of 2017”. As I’ve pointed out before, just because it’s dated 2017, doesn’t mean it’s not an issue. These can come out of committee at any point during what’s left of the 115th Session. Either bill can also show up in the future, too.

Both put a global policy surrounding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) into each Bill for competitive economics.

Here’s the problem: STEM is a UN (United Nations) led program straight out of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). It’s every bit as tied to the CCSS Machine as Bill Gates is. STEM documentation proves the goal all along was a STEM economy in America driven by STEM citizens for global competitiveness. We are well on our way to becoming that ‘STEM nation with a STEM people holding STEM jobs for a global STEM economy’ which was ushered in during previous presidencies.

Bills like S 1270 and HR 2653 simply speed up the process.

Sadly, Warriors, these ‘sisters’ are not exclusive. There are many other STEM bills (as well as STEM laws) floating around D.C. (*Note: STEM has a ‘sister’, too. STEAM: Science Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and, Math.) Just like STEM has UN roots, STEAM has roots from another country. Both are passed off as “American made”. Both are also usually laughed off with this comment, “Oh, we’ve always had science, technology, engineering, and, math. This isn’t new stuff!”

bones-say-it
STEM, by way of Common Core..and not in a distant galaxy.


So what do S 1270 and HR 2653 do?
From the opening paragraph before the S 1270’s legislative language begins. “To direct the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy to carry out programs and activities to ensure that Federal science agencies and institutions of higher education receiving Federal research and development funding are fully engaging their entire talent pool, and for other purposes.”
(*Note: HR 2653 has 21 Representatives as sponsor and co-sponsors. S 1270 has 4 Senators as sponsor/co-sponsors.)

The justification for these 2 bills is that Congress has had many STEM related reports over the past 10 years. According to these Reports, not everyone is in the STEM pool. These bills will help correct that. Another justifying statement? It’s critical for our national economy and global competitiveness to educate and train more scientists and engineers. Among the Reports named, three CCSS Machine D.C. taxpayer funded agencies are. The NSF (National Science Foundation, NASA, and the U.S. Dept. of Labor.
Warriors, the NSF was the agency which created the term STEM as a marketing tool!
Reports and data mining from the University of California and the Association for Women in Science are also included. (*Note: AWIS, Assoc. for Women in Science is a global group. Their article devoted to inspiring young girls to be STEM girls, is one you should check out.)

On Page 7, it’s revealed the federal government funds 60 percent of all research conducted in higher education. The entire purpose of the two Bills?

s1270.jpg

These purposes will be carried out in education and jobs. Notice the amount of the use of the word ‘federal’ in these two.

STEM for Vets:

Yes, Warriors, our U.S. Veterans cannot be left out of the education and job alignment. HR 4323 (Supporting Vets in STEM Careers Act) has passed the U.S. House and is currently in the Senate’s Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee.
Vets will be data mined and encouraged to gain STEM jobs. What a great ‘thanks’ for serving America. Get globally aligned.

H Con Resolution 29:
The U.S. House resolved and the Senate concurred that the entire Congress would commit itself to increase access and jobs (especially for women and minorities) to STEAM education and careers. This Resolution ups the data mining and data tracking of our citizens and uses AP (Advanced Placement courses) as fodder for ’21st Century jobs’.

HR 4375, “STEM Research and Education Effectiveness and Transparency Act”:
This bill has also passed the House and is in the Senate’s Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. This one gives the NSF more power. Targets women and minorities for studies and careers in STEM. This bills will also use federal grants as bait to State level government. (*Note: The Senate Committee mentioned has a huge ‘corner on the market’ for America’s infrastructure, including digital access.)

Closing:

Warriors, STEM also ties to NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). In this article I laid out for everyone that fact and several others about this affront to America.

Well, there you have it, Warriors. The STEM legislation is ripe in D.C. So, the stench of all those confusing policy as law at our expense.

Everyone Loves A Fair, Right?!

To All My Anti Fed Ed Warriors, out there, I ask you the question above..
Everyone loves to attend a fair, right? Well, not everyone, I suppose. There are plenty of folks who would rather stay home than ride the ferris wheel, eat cotton candy, and, see all the local exhibits.

However, Warriors, what about a different kind of fair? Say, an international one.

Is there such a thing? Would you attend? Who would organize it, what activities would be present? How does all this impact education reform in America?

I invite you to read on to find out the answers and so much more.

Meet BIE, Your Fair Guide:

BIE (Bureau for International Expositions) would be the organization in charge of the fair, or, as they call it ‘exposition’.
(*Note: This BIE is not to be confused with the US BIE, Bureau of Indian Education within the U.S. Dept. of the Interior)

bigexpo

According to the BIE’s website, an ‘expo’ (aka ‘fair’ for our conversation) is,  “a global event that aims at educating the public, sharing innovation, promoting progress and fostering cooperation. It is organized by a host country that invites other countries, companies, international organisations, the private sector, the civil society and the general public to participate.”

Everyone from young kids to senior citizens and from every walk of life are invited to these events.

The four main goals of these types of events are:
a) collectivism (although it referred to as ‘cooperation’); b) education (carried out through entertainment); c) showing off the host country; and, d) growing your nation’s economy. (Warriors, pause and ask yourselves this, “Where have I seen or heard this type of agenda before?”)

A quick and simple answer is the UN’s SDGs (United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals). In fact, the BIE, has a document expressly for tying in the SDGs to the Expositions. Below is a screen shot of the 2017 document’s front page.

To read the 2017 U.S. House Bill 534, it’s here.
To see the BIE’s information on the US, as a member nation, that is located here.

So, What About Education Reform?

Warriors, we know several Anti Fed Ed researchers and activists have tied Dubai to the CCSS Machine. So, it isn’t surprising to find a 2013 BIE Speech (concerning the upcoming 2020 Dubai World Expo)  where education was brought up 5 times.

Of those 5 times, only a couple are evidence of the global reform being carried out today, in 2018.

Here’s the first reference which should set off a few flags:

dubaione

Followed by:

dubaitwo

Source for the 5 page speech

Warriors, just think this was back in 2013; while the US wasn’t part of the BIE. Now that the US is once again a member nation, how much of this has already been done here in America? How much of this type of alignment is currently being carried out?
(*Note, the first question I posed here is more rhetorical. We have tons of evidence as to the global education push established in the past.)

If you’d like to see more ‘education’ items from the BIE archives, simply type in ‘education’ in their general search bar on their main page.

Another Fair:

Warriors, as far as other type of fair, this past July (2017), the celebration fair outside the G20 (Group of 20) featured many celebrities pushing for global citizens, global agendas, and, using education as one of the tools by which to pull this off. I covered this information in my article, “Knot In My Backyard”. (*Note: be sure to scroll down to the comments section.)

There was an important update to the “Knot” article I published in Sept. 2017. In it you’ll find the Global Citizen scorecard and tons more information. You’ll see how NY Sen. Schumer is a global sell-out, as is Stevie Wonder (entertainer).

Closing:

Warriors, these types of fairs, expos, and, celebrations will not stop. In fact, they may increase. How do we fight back? These are public domain meetings. Use that to your advantage!

We cannot win the War Vs the Core in the CCSS Machine’s territory, BUT, we CAN fight the Machine in OURS. If we ‘win’, super. If we don’t, the Machine will suffer greatly by the time we are through.

roman-army-testudo-formation
Protecting each other well during a battle is vital for success.

Our work as activists is FAR from over. So, let’s turn the tables. Instead of a ‘fair’ exhibiting hype, let’s exhibit truth.
Let’s have teachers and students give ‘fair’ speeches about how damaging the
globalization of their classrooms is.
Let’s have them display the CCSS curriculum and resources for all to see how unfair this education reform is for THEM.
Let’s trot out the data mining tools and show the unfair AND illegal data rape happening everyday in America for the ‘global good’.
Let’s expose the UN’s SDG takeovers in our cities and towns, too.
