Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in this, the 6th installment of my series on workforce development (aka workforce education), I wanted to bring you the words and purposes of Congress.
After all, it was the entire Senate which declared Sept. 2019 as Workforce Development month. If you think the House is ‘lily white and pure’ on this issue, think again. The entire House has also backed workforce development embedded in education.
With some local elections happening in the next couple of months, it’s important to know what their federal counterparts are saying. Why? With the federal-to-state funding streams, it’s vital. Most of the time, the local level officials align with the federal officials. It’s not an accident!
So, what does the U.S. Senate HELP (Health, Education, Labor, and, Pensions) Committee think about ‘workforce development’? See for yourselves:
What does the US House of Representatives’ Committee on Education and Labor say?
Their statements are a bit harder to find because the main committee has placed ‘workforce development’ in a sub-committee. However, look at the main committee’s agenda in plain sight:
You can clearly see the subcommittees’ views on their ‘jurisdiction’ in education and labor (Both are unconstitutional as BOTH the U.S. Dept. of Education and U.S. Dept. of Labor are violations of the U.S. Constitution AND federal laws!) There should be ZERO Congressional jurisdiction of EITHER education OR labor!!
(Source, to see the entire page of jurisdictions for both the main committee and all the subs, be sure to visit the site. Emphasis added is mine.)
Warriors, if and when you visit either the Senate’s HELP Committee or the House’s Education and Labor Committee, be sure to look at the bipartisan efforts. Members of all these come from ‘both sides of the aisle’.
We CANNOT and SHOULD NOT blame one party. This ‘global-to-federal-to-state-to-you’ workforce agenda is at the hands and feet of BOTH major parties as well as the minor parties. The wallets of the CCSS Machine have locked this in 100%!
Warriors, on an old episode (Season 2, episode 6) of the “Good Wife” it was stated ‘make truth appear as a lie’. The context was how to hurt someone without reproach.
From my researched view, I’d say that our Congress should all be run out of office.
Why? They’ve made overreaches in education and labor into almost an art form.
We CANNOT and SHOULD NOT continue to give our votes to these officials.

Part One: Gave you the Senate Resolution Part Two: How skills based education is ‘superior’ to academic based education
Part Three: Focused on how the US has embraced the United Nations agenda for workforce based learning Part Four: How STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math), CTE (Career Technical Education) and, other related programs are global-to-fed-to-state agenda items

**In my next installment: What about the special interest groups and workforce development in education?
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, shifts in time, have happened for us. Down through history. For example, our shift in how we read the Bible, what version we read, our very calendars were also shifted.
We’ve seen and witnessed shifts in beliefs, traditions, money, foods, who leads us, and, how they lead us. So, seeing a modern day shift in education isn’t really all that surprising. Warriors, the truth is THIS shift isn’t going to need 300 years to complete.
I believe we shouldn’t be surprised. I believe we should be striking back!
Why? It’s one thing to warn others by telling them to remove themselves from situations which can harm them. It’s another if we don’t also warn that the shifts are coming from ALL directions and they are all positioned on education.
It doesn’t matter what ‘school choice’ you exercise. These purposed and powerful shifts we are seeing will spare no one.
If our houses were on fire, we’d run out the front door, assuming safety. But what happens when the fire is coming for us from the back door, at the same time?!
In my second installment of this series you are reading, I closed with the fact we’d look at the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s take on all this shifting of academic education to workforce preparation. The workforce preparation is being heralded by DC as ‘great’.
U.S. Dept. of Labor’s Workforce Development Shift:
Warriors, below is a screen shot highlighting the latest news from DoL. They are so proud..and they want you to feel good about the abuse of taxpayer funds (aka: grants) helping the agenda live on.
Warriors, I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel any better about taxpayer abuse at ANY level. Especially the federal level. Why? The U.S. Dept. of Labor is JUST as unconstitutional as the U.S. Dept. of Education. Apprenticeships COMBINE these two agencies and put businesses in charge of the standards.
Our education system is shifting because it’s being hijacked!
Another piece of the educratic shift goes to the ‘soft skills’ workforce development claims is good for our learners (again, any age and any choice of institution). “Soft skills” are those internal attitudes and beliefs which are attached to our values. The CCSS Machine calls it SEL or social emotional learning. Why does workforce education (development) give a hoot about your social emotional status (see item #6)?
Will you conform and serve the workforce well or will you need micro-managing? If you need micro-managing, don’t fret, the federal government has human capital ‘police’ to guide you back into the fold.
Warriors, what federal agency oversees our emotions? (Hint: it’s part of health).
That’s right, the U.S. Dept. of Health/Human Services. ALSO, unconstitutional.
So the shift we’re seeing is in the hands of the ‘unholy trinity’ (as I call them). The trio that makes up U.S. Ed, U.S. Labor, and U.S. Health. In ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) these 3 federal departments were given the largest increases in power, we’ve seen in a long time. Since ESSA was supposed to be an educational law, you’d assume the federal agency over education would have the largest power increase of the 3. No, it was health/human services. Now, go back and look at the top 3 career fields. How many are attached to not only labor, but health care?
1) If you missed my article detailing the HARD and SMART Goals being used across the USA right now, in the name of workforce prep (education), go here.
2) If you’re curious as to just how many of our federal agencies are unconstitutional, this previously published news service has an eye-opener.
3) If you’ve not heard of the Committee for Children, my 2018 article has tons of researched information.
In the fourth installment, we’ll look a bit closer at the workforce shift unfolding before us.
Warriors, one of the things we’ve seen shifting is the funding of education and all that goes with it. Workforce development, in this case, is just the latest. However, it’s the last nail in our coffins, so to speak.
Many, many others have been deeply concerned with America’s direction in shifting taxpayers funds away from We, the People to It, the Government.
Way back in the early 1800s Thomas Jefferson wrote to John Taylor. They both were concerned with funding being used at government excess to fund so many things it quite frankly had no business funding. Hmm, Jefferson and Taylor would be incensed with the shifting and excess today. Shouldn’t we, also, be incensed?
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’ve often seen movies or read books which pose the question ‘What if everything you knew was based off a lie?’ How many fact-based researched articles, magazines, and, books have we read which totally alter what we were taught in school?
For example, years ago, my mother gave me a book called “Mayflower”.
The book was written by Nathaniel Philbrick. In the book, he details actual facts about the real story of America’s birth after the Mayflower Pilgrims landed. Whatever you learned about (or may have taught about the Mayflower BASED off what you’d learned and available resources) is absolutely NOT what took place.
Warriors, this is simply one example. However, I think you can see the point. If what we’ve learned and passed on is not factual, what our students take with them certainly cannot be truthful either.
Are there other instances we’ve been lied to in education without knowing it? Yes!
How many of us remember being taught that Pres. Lincoln was the “Great Emancipator”?
(Original image source, emphasis added is mine)
Interview link is here. Comments about Lincoln, Marx, and, Darwin are near the 13 minutes time stamp. Sources for the fact based research of David Zuniga, are here.
Warriors, why does this matter in 2019? Because what foundations were laid THEN continue to SHAPE our path as a nation NOW.
Warriors, think of just HOW toxic the foundation of lies about freedom/slavery, the economy, and most of all, racism has become simply BASED off one side of history. The ONE side the government has manipulated!
IF you think there’s no way the 37th and 38th Congressional Sessions were used, I urge you to take time and go back to look. I did. Did you know that the 37th Congress gave the President (Lincoln) the power to declare State residents as insurrectionists?
Did you know the 37th Congress also impacted education? In the Library of Congress link above, use ‘control F’ on your computer and type in ‘education’, you’ll see it mentioned 58 times. One mention even shows that Congress directed parents to choose schools. Warriors, Congress, NOT the States; as in the Constitution’s 10th Amendment!
Did you know the 38th Congressional Session impacted education; especially for the Native American tribes; a total of 68 times? It’s one of the first times, I’ve seen so many Native American tribes mentioned being paid at the ‘pleasure’ of the President or Congress. Federal money is taxpayer funded.
Taxpayer dollars paying for education at a national level! Unconstitutional! While Article 2 of the Constitution allows the President to appoint citizens to serve at his pleasure, there is nothing which states he can use Federal funds to be used ‘at his pleasure’. Congress, per Article 1, can pay debts, but I did not see any instance where a debt is the same as a ‘pleasure’.
Warriors, this predates the 20 US Code 1232a, which prohibited the federal government from overreaching into education. However, even without that federal law, the Constitution was violated.
Trade and the economy were also set up to create what has become a‘command economy’ back in the 37th and 38th Congressional sessions.
Warriors, even the ‘market economy’ is squeezing out We the People. How? Private corporations!
Just think, the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) mandated MOREP3s get involved in education! How is a P3 based on a lie for America? Fascism! Public money is used WITHOUT the public’s input and by the private groups DIRECTING the agenda.
Add David’s Interview To Mine:
Warriors, just the day before David’s eye opening interview on Settings Brushfires, my interview highlighted the treason and propaganda Congress and the CCSS Machine (from a global level on down) which has become a foundation of lies for America.
I urge you to listen to David’s interview FIRST, then follow with mine. You should see a disturbing pattern we’ve been witness to our entire lives and didn’t realize it! Our foundation as a country has been in trouble since before you and I were born, certainly before our children and the current generation.
1) Warriors, don’t forget the 100 year trail of education’s demise in America has been traced already. As I’ve shared before, Berit Kjos researched that and has a very informative booklet with dates, names, organizations, and, more.
2) I’ve shown you, repeatedly, the blending of education and workforce throughout America’s history. Be sure to look at this article’s alignment from US ‘education’ to the UN (United Nations) model.
3) This researched article showed how MN was one of the very first States to get an indoctrination of workforce prep education from the UN.
4) Under President Truman, the UN’s Charter was signed and America became the first nation to bow down. That was 1945, Warriors. Chapters 8-11 of the Charter, specifically lay out Marxism for not only government control of the citizens, but of the economy.
6) A huge foundation of lies for America is found inSTEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math). Many Americans want to ignore this truth. I hope you choose to acknowledge it. It’s sole purpose it to be the last nail in the American nation’s coffin.
Warriors, in September, I’ll be looking at more American betrayal in our education system. The 116th Senate Chamber of Congress has declared September 2019 as “Workforce Development Month”. What a betrayal to our children.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, in my previous article, I laid out for you the importance of just how much we are losing by allowing repugnant and unconstitutional (therefore, illegal) laws to govern us, especially in education.
In that article, you also were brought up to speed on some educratic bills which are being fast-tracked so they can become laws. That’s right, MORE laws to add to the thousands we are charged to not follow or, even honor.
Why? Three realities we are NOT living by:
Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution clearly points that the Constitution is the SUPREME law of the land. Marbury vs Madison’s further clarification that even the Supreme Court cannot ‘best’ the Constitution. US Code 1232a’s prohibition of ANY type of federal overreach into education.
“ANY”includes presidential executive orders, federal funds, federal ‘laws’, policies, initiatives, programs, Congressional legislation, insertion of education into ANY other unconstitutional law, and using our taxpayer dollars against our freedoms and liberties. “Education” means all teaching, learning, curriculum, testing, and, all connecting resources.
Warriors, at the close of the previous article, I told you there were other repugnant and illegal legislation the 116th Congress is churning out. There’s also one note to add.
Since that publication, I’ve been asked by a Warrior in Rhode Island if any type of lawsuit has been created to wipe out these repugnant and unconstitutional ‘laws’. To date, I do not know of any. If you have knowledge of one (or, hopefully, many), please let me know.
**For the remainder of this article, we’ll look at 3 Congressional bills and President Trump’s latest EO (Executive Order).
Meet S 1558:
Warriors, this Senate bill (AI-IA, short for Artificial Intelligence Initiative Act) is one I’ve shared with two great Anti Fed Ed Warriorswho happened to be experts on the UN (United Nations) and the global push for AI and 5G in America. I hope you will look for more on S 1558’s overreaches into your communities. S 1558 was introduced in May 2019.
However, I’m covering the education portions of S 1558 for you. You can access the entire bill in the highlighted phrase above.
What does S 1558 do? It establishes a federally led initiative (program complete with policies and funds) to embed AI in our national economy. It will also attach AI (includes 5G) in our national security plan. In a nutshell, S 1558 will have us more data tracked than ever. It’s also going to attach badges and digital markers on each of us. By the way, our current US nationalsecurity strategyis laced with UN’sSustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agenda points.
Also, S 1558 has ‘other purposes’. Such as, education being mentioned 49 times. S 1558 puts the NSF (National Science Foundation) in charge of much of the AI-IA implementation.
NSF is also a partner to the UN and ‘adores’ the SDGs. Since NSFcoined the marketing term “STEM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) to hoodwink Americans, it makes sense that this same NGO (Non governmental organization) would be used in S 1558.
Page numbers concerning education which are the most troublesome:
Page 22, algorithms; Page 26, P3s (Public Private Partnerships); and Page 28, AI hubs in schools from PreK to workforce.
S 1855, The ASPIRE Act:
Warriors, ASPIRE is short for Access, Success and Persistence in Reshaping Education Act of 2019. This is NOT the first time ASPIRE’s been in Congress, back in the 114th Congressional session, ASPIRE was trotted out. I went into detail about S 3368, then. Much of the same repugnant garbage is in the newer version, S 1855. (*Note: during the 115th Congressional session, there were 2 ASPIRE Acts, one the almost carbon copy of S 3368 and HR 926, an amendment to the HEA for STEM.)
The same Senate Official (Coons) introduced ASPIRE in the S 3368 version AND the current S 1855 version.
So, what will S 1855 do for education’s reshaping? First, it is to amend the HEA, Higher Education Act. Supposedly by reshaping higher education more people can become students and go on to complete their higher education. You’ll find 65 references to education is S 1855. This bill introduced in June 2019.
Page 3, all the types of higher education are laid out.
However, Warriors, it’s the amount of power the Sec. of Education (DeVos) will have in this bill which is the biggest concern. She’ll be given the power to determine who gets financial aid, which schools are performing well and which ones are in the bottom 5%, she’ll determine what punishment to give the bottom 5%, she’ll have the data mining trails to track how students and teachers are applying ‘best practices’, she’ll be in charge of ‘accelerated learning’ and work-study programs, and hand out $2 million (a piece) grants on a competitive basis to qualifying higher education institutions. If your school doesn’t measure up to DeVos’s design? Penalty fees begin at $1 million. Those penalty fees from the schools cannot come from fewer scholarships awarded or raising tuition prices. So, where will the money come from? More than likely our taxes.
HR 3102, HIGHER ED Act:
This June 2019 bill has a much longer name. ‘HIGHER ED’ is short for Helping Individuals Get a Higher Education while Reducing Education Debt Act. You’ll find ‘education’ is embedded 85 different times in HR 3102.
Warriors, somehow this ONE bill will improve higher education loans. How? Reauthorizing Stafford (subsidized and un-subsidized) loans, offering student loan bankruptcy, giving re-financing opportunities, loan forgiveness, and, loan repayments based on income. Sounds great, right? Well, let’s remember a few key facts:
1) student debt is at its highest due TO the government’s involvement
2) student repayment programs have been offered in the past and contained massive amounts of federal controlling strings
3) student debt forgiveness will also transfer the repayment of that debt to other taxpayers
4) with government involvement, there are also P3s, public private partnerships..messing with money AND data concerning our students and their families
5) the involvement of the Treasury Dept and other US federal agencies is a certainty (which means more data collection and sharing)
6) HR 3102 puts the Sec. of Education in charge of designed and developing (thus approving) the entire process (Does the wolf minding the hen house come to mind?)
This set up scheme is almost like the government’s try at lowering the bar in the housing market, so that folks who’d never been able to buy a house, could. Trouble is, so many folks who couldn’t pay for their homes threw the economy into a tail spin.
This happens every single time the US government gets into economic controlling areas it has NO constitutionally to do so!
HR 3102 also will use PLUS loans and federal direct consolidation loans. HELLO?!Doesn’t Congress remember education funding is a part of federal control and by the US federal law, below, prohibited!!
Warriors, a reoccurring theme was present in HR 3102. Options to switch up repayment programs and/or to completely opt-out. Who, my fellow Anti Fed Ed Warriors, will pick up the slack? According to other parts of the language, if you have defaulted on student loans, while you can may be pay it back or not (per the language), any collection agency fees, would be on your shoulders. Again, nothing in clear print about the balance of the loan.
Warriors, we really need to watch out for this bill’s passage. It is still very possible to totally block it. We must contact our DC officials.
President Trump’s Newest EO:
Warriors, the most recent EO (Executive Order) made by President Trump also concerns student loan. This one, however is for our disabled veterans. Now, let me stop right here and state for the record that I am NOT anti-veteran. I support our veterans. I have US veterans in my family. I honor and respect US service men and women. However, as in other articles where our veterans are concerned, I have raised the point about what a disservice our US government is to them.
Especially in education! In the past, I’ve shown you bills where the US Congress is using STEM to retrain veterans. So, in essence, the very globalism and tyranny our US military is fighting, they come home, only to have it thrust upon them in order to get a job!
Does this sound very constitutional? Does this truly honor their fight to keep us free? No, it globalizes our nation just a bit more each time a bill like this is created or passed.
HOWEVER, there’s a BIG difference between a Congressional bill and an Executive Order. The Congressional bill at least goes through channels with opportunities for We the People to weigh in. EOs, totally bypass the will of the citizens and promotes the President’s agenda (regardless of issue). There’s been much debate about the constitutionality of EOs, not only under Trump, but in previous administrations.
What does Pres. Trump’s vet debt forgiveness EO say? Look below:
Warriors, what current legal vet debt loan forgiveness is available? Stateside Legal (for the US Military members) states that a) you must be the one to request debt forgiveness not only in certain situations, but it only applies to certain loans. If you’re a vet with a private student loan, no EO in the world will help.
Since many States have been begging DeVos to address this problem, this EO handed her the opportunity to ‘fix it’ on a silver platter. During campaign season. Using unconstitutional laws and programs to boot. Warriors, do you see the total lack of local control in education being played out, yet again?!
What happens to any disabled vet with student loans now? Will DeVos manipulate it so that the ‘minimal burden’ will be zero? (It’s zero in HR 3102 for some students) What happens when the ‘minimal’ is still too pricey? What is a vet or their family to do, then? Where is the accountability so that this new policy and system won’t allow for abuse or fraud?
Not that we need the feds to be THAT controlling, but still, where’s the protection for the citizens involved or the citizens left paying for this debt?
Also, Warriors, let’s remember another key point, in my Prudence Files series on 2020 Presidential candidates, several are touting total student debt forgiveness. So why are these people’s plans being spun as socialism and the President’s is being spun as a heroic move? Is not socialism present in this EO? Certainly illegal activity, if nothing else?
Warriors, we MUST take back our education. The government will NOT help us one bit.
Since DC remains a murky swamp, we must not get in the muddy waters with DC. We must stand on the solid ground and march on.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, don’t you just ‘love’ it when the U.S. Dept. of Education dreams up more ways in which to abuse our tax payer dollars?
Would you believe Sec. DeVos has announced new rounds of competitive grants (those are your taxpayer dollars, by the way) for supposedly making schools safer?!
Warriors, I’m not saying we shouldn’t have ‘safe’ schools, but you have to consider that what we think when we hear ‘safe’ is NOT what the CCSS Machine means when it uses that word.
The Latest Round of Grants:
You can find the press release here. Look below, Warriors, and see the screen shot. For a mere $65 million dollars, our students and school staff will be aligned to the Every Student Succeeds Act, ESSA mandates (as laid out by the CCSS Machine) for ‘school safety’. Look at the fast approaching deadlines, too. So much for a summer break, huh?
Warriors, let’s consider that since all this ‘school safety’ business is part of ESSA’s mandates, that our LEAs (local education agencies) have had school safety plans all along. They HAD to, in order to have all ESSA State Plans approved in the first place! If you read the ESSA law (or Final Conference Report version), you saw States HAD to comply with national/federal provisions or at least show evidence of compliance!
In other words, Warriors, the set-up for mental health (aka “safe schools” measures) is going exactly as planned. These grants may be new, but the agenda behind them is NOT. The deck has been stacked against We the People since the CCSS Machine rolled into our lives. What’s the worst, is our children and school staff members are being used as the bait and switch.
If you missed the Presidential (Trump) appointed Federal Commission on School Safety, here’s their website. Sec. DeVos was placed as the lead member.
Project Prevent is based off the final 2018 Report the Federal Commission on School Safety (as presented to President Trump), the biggest takeaways are geo-tracking and school shootings (2nd Amendment has long been a back door agenda item from the CCSS Machine.) If you’d like to see what the ‘fine print’ of Project Prevent entail, the Federal Registry has that information.
School Climate Grants will increase the MTS (Multi Tier Supports) used in mental health services in our schools. As you know, Warriors, we’ve been warned MANY times as to the harm poorly trained and/or non medically certified leaders will force upon our students. Here’s what the Federal Registry has in the ‘fine print department’ on these Grants.
The Mental Health Professional Grants will increase the presence of P3s in our schools, in the name of safety AND mental health well-being. These Grants will use medically trained and licensed health care professionals. However, P3s are unconstitutional! You can find the Federal Registry’s details, here. (*Note: P3s are short for Public Private Partnerships. These are unconstitutional in the fact they are a fascist based tool which uses public money without public consent for private agenda.)
Warriors, remember this: Sec. DeVos is THE one who decides which LEAs get these grants! Remember: zero educational, mental health, or, emergency preparedness credentials, degrees, or, diplomas are held by Sec. DeVos.
1) From the 115th Congress session, the mental health and school safety overreaches were gearing up in big ways. Now that we’re in the 116th Session, what’s survived? What’s increasing? Read this and see if you can notice the connections to DeVos’s latest announcement.
2) What can we expect in the Trump/Pence 2020 Campaign on mental health and school safety? Plenty. Note in this article how EVERYTHING Sec. DeVos has done ‘for’ education is being counted as a great American move. What do the other candidates have in store for us as far as education and/or mental health? My 5 part “Prudence Files” series lays it all out.
3) School safety and mental health services will DEMAND massive amounts of data collection, sharing, and tracking. Are you sure the US federal government is concerned about your privacy?
4) From May 2019, my latest on the overreaches of Congress into multi-tier supports in mental health. These overreaches match ESSA and these new Grants.
5) From March 2019, the constant data tracking in the name of safety and mental health. Remember, these services are for all education choices, not simply public schools. Data tracking will also involveSIBs (social impact bonds), as well as ‘gender bonds’ and more. These overlap into ‘safety’ and ‘health’.
6) How does RtI (Response to Intervention) play into the mental health overreaches? RtI is a global tool backed by not only the UN, but Marc Tucker’s educratic plans the CCSS Machine’s been using for years.
7) The Mental Health push is in America, and going at break neck speed due to our involvement with the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), the UN (United Nations), and the World Bank. Mental health, in their ‘eyes’ is called SEL or Social Emotional Learning. If you missed the details to HOW all this fits our Congressional bills we are seeing (not to mention these new Grants DeVos will hand out), read this. Warriors, as we know SEL is embedded in ESSA in several ways.
8) Introduced just one day ahead of the U.S. Dept. of Ed’s announcement for these new grants (which are being rushed out), was the 116th Congressional bill, HR 3539. What does HR 3539 do? Sets up the U.S. Dept of HHS (Health and Human Services) to oversee teams of behavior health teams in our communities, especially our schools! Representative Ferguson (GA) has a press release giving more details.
Warriors, remember that the U.S. Dept. of HHS received the largest power increase/overreach, thanks to ESSA. The U.S. Dept. of Education and Labor also received huge power/overreach increases.
Warriors, I urge you to stop whatever summer vacationing you may be doing. Contact your representatives who are involved with HR 3539 and HALT this bill NOW!
Contact your LEAs and urge them to keep education 100% local by NOT accepting DeVos’s new Grants.
Urge your Senators and other leaders to work with you (and the rest of us Warriors) to REPEAL ESSA and every other federal educratic law. We MUST repeal laws first, then we can have much better success at ending federally run education.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, as the 2020 election season is gearing up in hype, know that one of the main issues will NOT be education. What’s grabbing the attention of most Americans? Data. However, data comes in several forms and most definitely shows up in education!
If you missed my 5 part series on thestances of all the Presidential candidates (Rs and Ds), I urge you to take the time to read through the articles. You’ll see the technology and innovation platforms (all are ‘code’ for data mining).
(That’s the current federal level candidates, excluding the President. His stances are in Part 3’s article.)
(That’s the State and Local level candidates)
Not ONE candidate, even the current President, is backing off data collection (aka: student data rape).
What’s noteworthy is the data rape doesn’t stop at the school, it is meant for EVERY American! That’s why the passage of FEPA was so vital. (FEPA is short for “Foundations of Evidence-based Policy-making Act”). I’ve written on FEPA several times, as have other Anti CCSS Warriors. There are other activists from the genres of American liberties, American finance, etc. who have also written about the connections FEPA has to our economy.
Many other Anti Fed Ed Warriors, have focused on the trails between money all everything we do on-line to create social credit. The social data mining helps speed this type of profiling right along.
What’s worse, is the 2020 candidates are riding the coattails of the global data marketing system. After all, that exactly where all this data is ending up.
But WHERE, Warriors, does the social data mining/data rape begin? How about our own back yards.
As, I often do, I’ll be showing you what I have found near me, in NC (where I live). I hope it spurs you to action to looking in your State for where the social data tracking trail is being inserted.
Big Data Just Down The Road:
Warriors, if you didn’t know it, I live in an area of NC where NASCAR racing is ‘king’. So much so, that Mooresville (where I live) is also known as “Race City USA”. Mooresville is just north of Charlotte. One of the biggest data and banking hubs in the nation.
Those of us who live here know that several large buildings sit empty as former headquarters of this team or owner, or another one. We’ve used to seeing new logos go up as old ones come down.
However, when a former racing car facility is re-invented as a mega data center, that’s a whole other issue. I can tell you that I’ve driven by the ‘new’ facility. The entire building and land is surrounded by a tall fence with razor wire in curled ribbons on the top. It’s a bit ironic, Warriors. Howso? When you consider the massive amounts of personal and private data being harvested (unconstitutionally), they have complete access to you, but you are to be kept out by all means.
A few years ago, President Obama made local and national headlines by coming to Mooresville to trot out the (then) latest and greatest student data mining system.(Project RED)was the name. Supposedly streamlined data collection to help students become more accomplished was the hype. (*Note: the article I embedded is from 2016 and will tie ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act to the increases in data collection.)
As Warriors, we know now that the data mining is so NOT about accomplishments, but cradle to grave tracking for workforce aligned education. While it’s true NC has done everything in its power to beef up technology in the classrooms, NC is hardly the sole State where this is happening. We’ll see the efforts grow, Warriors.
Yes, Warriors, we can! (Source) IBM is also a UN (United Nations) Partner for the Sustainable Development Goals(SDG #4 is Quality education for all).
1) Project RED is alive and is in continual data raping increase. If you want to see the latest, go here. (*Note: you’ll see the website isOne-to-One Institute. Be sure to look at the 21st Century ‘learning’, the tools for States to implement data at every turn and more. One-to-One is a international non-profit group. One of the Board members is from KnowledgeWorks, KW. KW is a known ‘cradle to grave’ digital community aligning group very much in the belly of the CCSS Machine. Their ‘cradle to career’ cities are spread all across the US. In NC, you can find one KW community in Winston-Salem. Also considered a big hub in NC. You can also see Winston-Salem in connection to the current NC Superintendent and his CCSS Machine tieshere. )
2) To see the Project RED ‘global toolkit’ Chapter 2, go here. For Chapter 5, go here.
3) The Leadership Team of GIGA is full of CCSS Machine group members (and their ties to Big Data). For example the President and CEO of GIGA also founded DCBlox (cloud based data storage is among their claims to fame).
4) From HPC Newswire, the GIGA/Mooresville News revealed a Cloud based ‘Event’ held earlier this year. (*Note: use the ‘event’ link and look at the right hand side to see the upcoming Cloud based Events to be held. Of special interest is the DC based one on infrastructure changes. Changing data mining infrastructure plays right into the ESSA , Every Student Succeeds Act data mining mandates, as well as HIPAA’s, FERPA’s, and FEPA’s.)
5) From what I could find, on-line, GIGA has been around since the 1990s and was founded by a man named Gartner. He then sold GIGA to Forrest Research (2003). I also found a GIGA pdf document from 2018, where Gartner is still active in Big Data. (*Note: when you access the Forrest website, you will not see ‘education’ as one of the sectors served, but you will see government and health insurance. Both are tied to education, as we know.)
6) Also in the Charlotte area, is the Charlotte Urban Institute. CUI is partnering with Big Government and Big Data to manipulate education via community services. You can find the CUI among the partners of the ISC, Institute for Social Capital. (*Note: manipulation of entire communities in the name of education is spread throughout ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act. Mostly, through data tracking.) UNC-Charlotte also has a Model UN Club. (*Note: Model UN Clubs are in all educational choices and age levels.)
Closing: Warriors, I’ll ask again, do you know what’s in your backyard about Big Data? As you can see, it isn’t hiding. It IS being used to control so much of our lives. Will we wait until in controls US 24/7 before we stop it?!
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we know Pearson Publishing is one of the WORST companies to be involved in education. However, besides PP, there are other really bad education (or so they claim) companies out there as well.
Today’s article is all about some of the CCSS Machine’s latest ads which are meant to pull you into the trap that workforce based and SEL (social emotional learning) based education are the saving graces of America.
Certiport By Pearson Vue:
Warriors, the ad (not seen below) I saw on social media was crystal clear in its intent. A seamless transition from school to work with Certiport’s credentialized system.
To see the badging video, go here.
To read about the Pearson company, go here.
To see and read the ‘white paper’, find that, here.
Other Certiport news bits: the company has been around since 1997 and is in 148 countries in 26 different languages. By having Pearson Certiport credentials your resume will stand out and your academic performance in the classroom will soar.
One concern which stood out to me is if you are receiving a certificate for your own small business, why is Pearson only equipping you with ‘middle skills’? What are ‘middle skills’? Look below for Harvard University’s answer:
Warriors, here’s a question, since on-line learning is set to wipe out jobs and professions, what happens when it wipes out the brick and mortar trade schools and/or community colleges? These are ‘middle skills’ territory. Most are the two year ‘stepping stone’ to jobs and or 4 year colleges.
You can find Certiport in the US under Cengage, Learn Key, Inc., Total Seminars, Total Training, NY Wired for Education (Metrix), and, Pearson.
Lead2Feed (L2F) :
Next up, in the education hype category, is a ‘feel good, do good’organization which gives free (and comprehensive) SEL (social emotional), CTE (Career Tech Eduation), CCSS (Common Core State Standards), 21st Century Skills (21st Century Readiness), PBL (Project Based Learning), and literacy to any school or community group who registers. It’s called “Lead2Feed”. The curriculum is based off a business model, not an education model.
L2F Board members (tied to education) can be found representing CTE (from TX, CA, and, OR), Gifted/Talented (OH and VA), AP, faith-based, special education, business education, agriculture science, consumer science, IT, social science, and, principals.
L2F is geared for 6th to 12th graders. It unites education and the community with ‘innovation’. It’s been around since 2012. The Foundation for Impact on Literacy and Learning and the Lift a Life Foundation are the co-founding groups. They have chosen
the former CEO of “Yum!” brand foods*, David Novak to base all their curriculum off of. (*Note: while you may not recognize “Yum!”, you will recognize Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and, KY Fried Chicken. “Yum!” is the parent to all of these companies.)
Mr. Novak has written a book titled “Taking People With You: The Only Way to Make Big Things Happen”. According the to L2F lesson sample, Novak is stated to be an ‘expert’ in leadership and recognition culture.
What’s ‘recognition culture’? Basically it’s a way to incentivize employees for better job performance. It’s a leveraging tool, Warriors.
Why would the Foundation for Literacy and Learning, as well as the Lift a Life Foundation choose Mr. Novak? Novak’s family IS Lift a Life Foundation!

Warriors, this long time CCSS Machine member group hasn’t slowed down its education overreaches ONE bit.
To see Lumina’s stance on federal overreaches in education, go here.
Has anyone questioned groups like Lumina to see where in the U.S. Constitution federal overreaches are legal? If not, why not? These groups shouldn’t push unconstitutional activities in D.C. If we haven’t stopped groups like this, why not?!
********************************************** Warriors, back in March 2019, I showed you how Lumina, the Gates Foundation, and, others, were actively setting up our kids for what workforce collar they would wear.
In February of this year, I showed you how Lumina’s overreaches were felt around the globe (and especially here in the US) for PBL (Project Based Learning), the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), and, more.
Warriors, we don’t have to look too far back in history to see haughty looks from young people groomed for a collective society where everyone is a productive member. Is this really what America’s being reshaped for?
I believe not only IS this the reality, but it’s among us and growing daily.
Lastly, if you’re not sure how important the differences between being a free citizen in an independent nation and being a controlled citizen of a dependent nation are, watch this short You Tube video.
If we’re not stopping the corporate and legislative overreaches, I want to know WHY. I bet you do, too!
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, for the third article in my series exposing the 2020 Presidential hopefuls, we’ll be reviewing the current President and his Vice President, as far as education activities. We know that federally led education has NOT gone away, in fact, we’re further down the road to global conformity than ever! As I said in Part One, this is about our children, not demagogue worship.
If you missed Part One, I gave you the set-up for how the series would run, as well as look at the Senators running for the Oval Office. In Part Two, the House of Representative’s candidates as well as former federal leaders. Still to come, in Part 4 are the State level candidates. Part 5 will close us out with private citizens seeking the President’s job and some general election information.
It’s important we exercise our voices (prudently) in shaping which candidates move to the next round in the election cycle.
President-elect Trump/Vice-President-elect Pence On Education:
Warriors, I’m beginning with the President/Vice from post election (2016) to present. Why? I want to lay out, for you, the truth.
Something main stream media and even the CCSS Machine have neglected to do thus far. As I stated in Part One, my purpose is NOT tell you whom to vote for, nor am I ‘picking’ on any one candidate moreso than the other. I cannot, in good prudence, exempt our sitting President and Vice President from this series.
We deserve to know exactly how deep the CCSS Machine ties go with each of these candidates. Our votes are precious. We’ve been lied to and put off time and time again.
November 9th: From my article,“Does It Really Matter?”, I posed some pretty tough questions for all of us to share with those newly (or re-elected) leaders. We knew the promises to end Common Core were handed out liberally, the pledge to stop the obsessive data rape, assessments, and, all that connected (which STILL connects) them. How? Mainly ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) and WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act). Don’t forget the HEA (Higher Education Act), it’s part of the birth to death alignment foundation (which is almost 100% complete).
November 29th: I gave you an in-depth look at the CCSS Machine alignment of the Vice President.
Also included in this article was Pence’s love and promotion the cradle to grave workforce prep (CTE) education has become; Congress, EdChoice, and more about the CCSS Machine.
Jan. 7th (just before the Inauguration):
From my “Lessons Learned” article, Betsy DeVos’s hearing to lead to her appointment as the U.S. Sec. of Education.
Feb’s“CCSS/CTE BS Alert!”, shared this truth nugget. Sure, previous Administrations BEFORE the Trump/Pence led one were responsible for also violating our Constitution. However, THIS Administration promised and pledged to halt it. (2019 note: they haven’t).
(*Note: in the original article there is a spelling error in the screen shot. That has been corrected in the above image. I point this out so that if you choose to share it, you’ll have the correct image.)
From 2018, my article explaining how damaging the President/Vice President/Congressionalexpansion of ‘school choice’via education savings accounts to promote school choice.
In August 2018, I showed you theTrump 26 Step plan to implement a national workforce council. This will intersect education and jobsin some serious ways. (*Note:The 2019 article I wrote detailing the Council’s first meeting is below. Look for the ‘*knowing’.)
Warriors, as you know, I’ve shown you how STEM/STEAM are change agents tools of the United Nations. Both our President and Vice President fully support these tools and have done everything possible to increase their presence in our nation. Add to this that the Administration promotes STEM without a hesitation.
I hope this disturbs everyone who reads this. Why? Because to support the UN in this manner is un-American. To support the UN like this directly embeds the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) into our schools, our homes, our communities.
From my article,“Operation Alignment”, I shared the grave concern and warning bell of President Trump’s support for STEM. Remember, he’s made headlines by removing the US from some UN entities. I urge you to look at the evidence. It speaks otherwise. Even what portions we’ve been spared, the UN presence is still there. How? Because ANY funding or participation in ANYUN (or related) group ensnares us 100%.
Warriors, if this doesn’t concern you, then maybe*knowing the current pick for the new US Ambassador to the UN is tied to the CCSS Machine in some scary ways.
Advancing both STEM and CTE viaExecutive Ordershas unwittingly set America up for more indoctrination and academic-less ‘education’ (aka: workforce prep). Using Executive Orders also bypasses ‘We The People’. Especially where education is concerned. However, this abuse of power isn’t exclusive to one Administration.
When the President released hisProposed FY 2020 Budget, I broke it down for you to expose the numerous federal agencies and programs apprenticeships, STEM, and, CTE were embedded in. Add to that, theU.S. Dept. of Education’s Proposed FY 2020 Budget, you’ll find CTE and STEM (thus, apprenticeships) united. (*Note: see pages 7, 11, 26, 27, and, 42. Page 7 shows federal funds for STEM research and development; Page 11 shows the huge increase requested for FY 2020 ($300 billion), in FY 2019 was $130 billion. Page 11 also shows the STEM Teacher Incentives are set at $200 billion. Pages 26 & 27, show the CTE/STEM total cost will be about $1.3 billion; lastly, Page 42 shows mandatorySTEM for Hispanic serving institutions.)
The one thing both STEM and CTE survive on is ‘competency’. The Trump Administration chooses to use a lesser evil sounding word, ‘skill based’. If you think that simple word choice won’t mean much in the 2020 Presidential election, then I offer thisarticle.
1) Warriors, I covered the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in Parts One and Two of the “Prudence Files”.
2) To see how education is negatively impacted by the USMCA (US/Mexico/Canada) Agreement (New NAFTA), I covered that during themid-term electionsand updated it earlier this year.(*Note: in the updated article, look just above the cow picture.)
3) If you didn’t know it SNAP and CHIP federal funding goes to the States to use in healthcare, education, and welfare.SNAPandCHIP are even in ESSA. How will they ‘show up’ in use? SEL (social emotional learning), mental health, behavior interventions, food, and, more. Speaking of SEL, the President’s re-election said zero about First Lady Trump’s “Be BEST” campaign. Majorportions of thatare SEL overreaches.
Show Us The Money:
Warriors, in my “The Prudence Files” series, I’ve shown you the education stances, the legislation, and, the CCSS Machine funding. Will the Trump/Pence 2020 team find themselves among the many Senators and Representatives (current or former) who I’ve already exposed?
Here’s a screen shot about Gov. Pence as a candidate for Vice President:
(Source) To see the Chase Bank/Prince evidence, gohere. To see the JP Morgan Chase evidence, that’s here. Then, go back to Parts One and Two to see the others receiving campaign dollars from Chase.
For theinauguration, some top donors for (President) Trump (of the CCSS Machine members were Home Depot’s CEO and the Crafts, as in Kelly Craft who has been tabbed as next US Ambassador to the UN.)
As far as the 2016 election and Candidate Trump,Disney Corp.was among his contributors (as we know Disney is a big CCSS Machine member).
InvestOPedialisted that Renaissance Technologies (Make America Number 1 PAC) was the top donor in 2016.
As far as the 2020 Trump/Pence campaign, the tab is at $67.5 million according toPublicintergrity.org
The Federal Election Commission has thousands of campaign donation records for the Trump/Pence ticket from the previous and current campaigns.
Of concern to most parents is the massive amount of ‘student data rape’ in education. We know that Facebook, Google, Microsoft, IBM, Dell, Apple, and, others are involved in this. We know the ending data collection was an empty 2016 promise. So, will it be different this time? It doesn’t look good when you consider ex-Cambridge Analytical employees aremanagingthe 2020 Trump/Pence team. How will this connect to education? My fellow Warriors at Missouri Education Watchdog covered that in this article.
If you’re seething, I hope it’s because the truth has woken you up. As you can see, I don’t make this stuff up. Am I disappointed in our candidates running so far? You bet. Will the candidates from State government and the private sector be ANY better? Join me for Parts 4 and 5. If there’s ever a time we need a real Anti Fed Ed Warrior, not a CCSS Machine sellout, it’s now!
Breaking News Anti Fed Ed Warriors, released earlier today was the President’sBudget for FY 2020.
You can access the entire 150 page document, here.
The title of the Budget “A Budget for a Better America, Promises Kept, Taxpayers First”.
Warriors, ‘education’ is embedded in the Budget, 89 times. The U.S. Dept. of Education section begins on Page 29 and seeks a mere $62 billion dollars in taxpayers funds. The section is quick to point out this is actually a reduction from FY 2019, but it’s still a huge price tag for something that is 100% unconstitutional!
Contrary to most citizen’s view, education funding via federal budgets is not only within the U.S. Dept. of Education’s section. I found it in several other federal agencies as well. Many of which are just as unconstitutional as Education.
From the President’s Management Agenda, push 3 focus areas, technology, data, and, the workforce. (Page 7)
Page 8 shows a new federal arm of the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, called the U.S. Federal Data Service. Also, FEPA (Foundation of Evidence-based Policy-making Act) implementation will begin in FY 2020. (More on how this will happen is on Page 11.)
Also from Page 8: “The Federal workforce represents a critical part of realizing change. Failure to address fundamental workforce needs will render other modernization work ineffective. This goal reflects a transformational shift in strategic human capital management based on three pillars: 1. Actively Managing the Workforce: Improving employee performance management and employee engagement;
2. Developing Agile Operations: Reskilling and redeploying human capital resources; and 3. Acquiring Top Talent: Enabling simple and strategic hiring practices.”
Page 9, data driven formulas to use on grant funding from the federal government.
SNAP funding (under the U. S. Dept. of Agriculture) is used in education. (Page 16) You’ll also find rural investments (internet connectivity). Many of the education overreaches in rural investments will be found here.
Page 19, the U.S. Dept. of Commerce’s 2020 Census. This new and ‘improved’ Census will data mine more than ever before. The data is used in education grant funding formulas.
Page 23, the U.S. Dept. of Defense’s portion begins. You’ll find every branch of the Armed Services aligned to CCSS, CCR, and, STEM.
From the U. S. Dept. of Education’s section:
Page 35, the U. S. Dept. of Energy, will not specifically mentioned, STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) will be a huge part of the US DoE. You’ll also find that much of the energy will be funneled through the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Page 39, U. S. Dept. of Health and Human Services section begins. HHS received a huge increase in power over education via ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). Much was for mental health wrap around services carried out via SEL (social emotional learning). Much of this will encompass Medicaid funding, too (See Pages 44 and 45).
Page 40, the expansion of behavior health workforce will cost $221 million dollars. For Mental Health Community Block Grants (which will apply to schools) is $723 million.
For Certified Community Behavioral Health Centers, $150 million. For Children’s Mental Health Services (includes young adults), $125 million and another $133 million for school violence prevention.
Page 42, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is referred to for its impact upon health care. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act can be tied back to education as well.
Page 47, for those concerned about vaccines (as yes, these impact education, too), you’ll want to read here. Lots of money for the global health agenda.
Page 48, TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) funds also are used in education formulas for the States. Also on Page 48, funding for Head Start and Child Care and Development Block Grants (found in ESSA) are maintained. “The Budget also proposes a $1 billion one-time mandatory investment for States to build the supply of care and stimulate employer investment in child care.”
Page 49, U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security begins. This Dept. handles a tremendous amount of student data, as well as data on every citizen. Cybersecurity is part of STEM, so education will be impacted here. (On Page 52, you’ll see the U. S. Secret Service will become enlarged.)
Page 53, begins the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development. This impacts education, too. You’ll also find lots of UN SDGs and other overreaches are funneled through this agency. The 2020 Presidential Budget actually wants to eliminate the Community Development Block Grants (which are in ESSA). We’ll have to watch this particular nugget to see if Congress allows this.
Page 54, those receiving HUD funds who are not elderly or disabled must either work (training counts) or participate in some educational activity, at least 20 hours a week.
There’s also $75 million for Family Self-Sufficiency Funds and $15 million for Jobs-Plus. These will tie back to WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), as well as ESSA and the HEA (Higher Education Act).
Page 55, centralized holistic community hubs for wrap-around services for families and creating “Opportunity Zones”. These will connect to 21st Century Community Learning Centers (in ESSA), more than likely. (On Page 33, these are set to be eliminated, but as we saw with previous Pres. Trump budgets, Congress kept the funding open. This will need to be watched.)
Page 57, U. S. Dept. of the Interior begins. DoI has an arm called BIE (Bureau of Indian Education). BIE is directly impacted by the educratic takeover.
Page 61, U. S. Dept. of Justice section. Justice also overreaches into education via data tracking, drugs, and oversees our national security. Parts of our National Security Plan are centered on the United Nations declarations, not the U.S. Constitution. The amount of $754 million is earmarked for CTE (Career Tech Education) and re-skilling inmates. On Page 63, Project Safe Neighborhood will impact education and our 2nd Amendment. STOP School Violence will receive $100 million (also Page 63).
Page 65 will take you to the U.S. Dept. of Labor. As we well know this definitely overreaches into education. When ESSA was made into a federal law, this Dept. received an increase in power, as well. Expanding apprenticeships ($160 million) will boost the ‘earn as you learn’ platform of ‘closing the skills gap’. Page 66 expands the CTE in K-12th funding as well. America’s workforce centers and programs will be streamlined (no doubt through the U.S. National Council for the American Worker) Veterans and Job Corps will also be included in the re-skilling efforts and ‘earn/learn’. (On Page 85 under the U. S. Veteran Affairs, you’ll find educational assistance.)
Page 71, The State Dept. and other international programs. State Dept. involves education via USAID and is tied to the UN. There is quite a bit of information here, if you are concerned with international financing and global health agendas.
Page 77, U. S. Dept. of Transportation begins. Here’s another agency which will tie to the UN and the SDGs, education, and STEM.
Page 81, The U. S. Treasury. This will directly tie to education via student loans (Pages 83 and 84). Lots of international finances and investments will be funneled through this agency. Streamlined IT (Internet Technology) to collect more data is in the works, especially via the IRS.
Page 97, NASA begins. NASA is a huge CCSS and STEM aligned agency. The President has requested $21 billion. You’ll find an increase in P3s in this section. (public private partnerships). STEM funding will also be shifted from ‘low priority’ to “high priority”.
Other pages and how they connect:
Page 21, under the U. S. Dept. of Commerce, some NOAA education programs are set to be eliminated. NOAA will tie to CCSS and STEM.
Pages 30-33, under the U. S. Dept. of Education, school choice tax credits (for individuals and corporations) and scholarships, State-authorized nonprofit education scholarship-granting organizations (SGOs) to operate, especially for CTE, dual enrollment, and other educational related activities. Expanding school choice ($650 million), expanding public charter schools ($500 million) and $150 million for public magnet schools. This “Budget invests $50 million in funding for districts participating in the Title I student-centered funding pilot. The pilot program would help districts transition to more transparent funding systems that enable Federal, State, and local funding to follow the student to the public school of his or her choice.” Title One will receive $15. 9 billion dollars in funding. IDEA funds will be $13.2 million. A whopping $226 million for education related development. For School Safety National Activities, $200 million. For Education Innovation and Research, $300 million. HEA (Higher Education Act) modernization efforts geared for its re-authorization are not given a figure, but types of efforts are included. Streamlining data flow between Ed and the IRS. For CTE expansion at State levels, the President’s Budget asks for $1.3 billion. Federal work study programs will be refocused on workforce development.
Page 94, The Environmental Protection Agency will tie to the UN’s SDGs, STEM, and school health.
Page 102, under the Small Business Administration, (a big CCSS Machine arm for the government) Entrepreneurial Development and Education ($101 million). This includes counseling and mentoring for all ages.
There you have it, Warriors. The next step for this Budget is Congress. See something here which concerns you or troubles you, contact your Senator or Representative. Show them HOW each of the items you are vexed by ties to the CCSS Machine and/or globalism. As far as ‘bettering America’ I didn’t see it. Taxpayers first? No, missed that, too.
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, As we’ve known for a while now, the HEA (Higher Education Act) is up for a re-authorization. Frankly, it’s been up for a total re-authorization since 2008, the last time it was recycled. Since 2008, the HEA has been renewed. Meaning the funding to keep HEA has been updated.
With the updates in funds between then and now, little changes have been made here and there to keep up with the embedded unity between HEA, ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), STEM Act of 2015 (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), and all that connects this ‘unholy quad’ of federal overreach.
Warriors, we’ve also heard several times since the CCSS Machine first started grinding away, that HEA is the last link in the chain to mandate (from the feds, down) workforce based education from cradle to grave. We also know Sen. Lamar Alexander swore as soon as ESSA passed into law (late 2015) that HEA was next on his radar.
The 115th Congressional Session did come very close to passing a new version of the HEA, both versions were stuck in their respective Committees and expired when the 116th Congressional Session was sworn in.
It’s been said that before Sen. Alexander retired HEA would be be passed. He retires in 2020. (Note the rotten apples below)
How do I know HR 4508 and S 615 have been retired?
According to the unidentified male clerk in Rep. Virginia Foxx’s office, HR 4508 will not be coming back in that same form. When I asked if Rep. Foxx had plans of re-introducing it (since it was ‘her’ bill in the first place), I got told there was no news on that. If there was, I’d get a letter, as in a ‘snail mail’ letter.
In the Senate, no mention whatsoever of S 615 can be seen from the current Session. So, we’ll have to wait, right? Not so fast, Warriors! (*Note: If you have an leads on re-introductions of these massive bills, please, share them! Thank you)
While I haven’t found current legislation to re-authorize the ENTIREHEA, I have found several bills which AMEND it.
There are several, and we’re just in the first part of the 116th’s Session. (*Note: of the list below, you can sign up for alerts to any Bill you choose. Go to www.congress.gov, type in the Bill Letter(s) and numbers and choose ‘alerts’.)
HR 792(Opportunities for Success) will amend the HEA’s Section 441. That section focuses on federal work study programs as well as complete ‘other purposes’. (*Note: as we’ve learned together, ‘other purposes’ is a phrase DC uses to cover their backsides when hiding things they don’t want us to discover.) Staring at $1.5 billion for FY 2020 (and increasing thereafter), HR 792 expands both the opportunity for ‘work based learning’ as well as the definition of what ‘work based learning’ is. Bottom line: blurs the lines between education and labor for streamlined workforce education.
HR 1153 amends HEA for ELLs (English Language Learners) **As of this article no Bill text is available. The summary states it directs Sec. DeVos to award grants to higher education institutions to teach English.
HR 1161 amends HEA for clearer, more concise federal student loan information. **As of this article no Bill text is available. The summary does state the nebulous ‘other purposes’ is in this Bill.
HR 625(PROPEL Act, Professional Pell Education Learning Act) amends HEA (Section 401) to expand who can qualify forPell Grantsfor certain trade schools. The ‘certain’ trade schools will be those which either teach skill based trades, flight schools, apprenticeships, and on-the-job training which can be completed in less than 15 weeks, 16 semester hours, 24 quarter hours or 600 clock hours. These schools don’t have to be accredited by a nationally recognized association. Bottom line: do we really want barely qualified pilots or other trades? Why are we fast tracking our students of all ages?
S 416 amends the HEA so that those with special circumstances can qualify federal student aid. **As of this article no Bill text is available.
HR 640 (Student Simplification Aid Act) amends not only the HEA, but IRS Code as well. This will open up the data collection/sharing even moreso than at current rate, between the IRS and the U.S. Dept. of Education. This type of increase can best be described as ‘student data rape’. Bottom line: any contractor, sub-contractor, federal agency, cooperative partner has access to not only student data but family data.
S 468 amends Title II of the HEA (Professional Development) for ‘quality enhancement’. **As of this article no Bill text is available.
S234/HR 811 (identical sister bills) (Transparency in Student Lending Act) amends the HEA for financial disclosure rates. Bottom line: with student debt so high will rates continue to increase at the fed’s control?
S 379 amends the IRS Code for 529 Accounts to include new higher education credentialing. **As of this article there is no Bill text for this.
HR 786 amends theMineral Leasing Actto use federal funds in K-12 and public higher education. Bottom line: federal funds sent to States to ‘supplement’ education is unconstitutional.
HR 653 (Expanding Access to the Workforce through Dual Enrollment Act of 2019) This Bill will establish or expand programs for CTE (Career Tech Education) where bridges between secondary and post-secondary schools. Also known as dual enrollment or concurrent enrollment as well as ‘other purposes’. Bottom line: Each eligible school/institution will receive up to $1 million dollars for aligning academics to workforce based education.
S 532/HR 1229 (identical sister bills)amends the HEA for teacher loan forgiveness in connection with the Armed Forces and ‘other purposes’. **As of this article no Bill text is available.
HR 662 (REACH Act), Report and Educate About Campus Hazing amends the HEA and provides for ‘other purposes’. This Bill defines what ‘hazing’ is; will involve partnerships between campuses and police enforcement; requires on-campus education. **Bottom line: What group will be providing the education? What, if any, slant will be included? How much funding will be earmarked?
HR 65 (Enhancing Educational Opportunities for Home School Students Act) amends the IRS Code to expand what expenses 529 Accounts will cover. **Bottom line: not only will K-12 expenses be included, but dual enrollment and some higher education items. (*Note: a related bill, HR 1084, Section 301, expands 529 accounts.)
S220 (529 Expansion and Modernization Act) this Bill will amend the 1986 IRS Code (as does HR 1084) covering 529 accounts for the costs of apprenticeships, early education, and related items. **Bottom line: this is one of the first pieces of federal legislation I’ve seen where the cradle to grave system connects to money. Apprenticeships fall under CTE, Career Tech Education and tie to U.S. Labor. Early ed ties to U.S. Education. Another sign of a merger?
HR 778 (Educational Freedom Accounts) this Bill is for the District of Columbia to expand‘school choice’. Eligible students must be enrolled in public school (including charters, excluding homeschooling). **Bottom line: this Bill extends the ‘freedom’ of choice all the way to higher education, includes tutoring, and other types of services. Why is a NC Representative sponsoring this?
HR 334 (New Collar Jobs Act) will increaseeducation for cyberspace jobsand ‘other purposes’. Amends the IRS Code of 1986 to increase employer contributions. Amends HEA for student loan repayments. Will definitely tie to STEM funds, jobs, and education. **Bottom line: creates a CyberCorps scholarship for service program & increases federal cybersecurity contracts. This reeks of glorified ‘indentured servitude’, does it not?
HR 1094 (World Language Advancement and Readiness Act) will find the U.S. Dept. of Defense, the National Intelligence Agency, and, the U.S. Dept. of Education inpartnership. Defense will offer competitive grants to States to increase world languages in K-12th grades. So that in higher education, world readiness isn’t such a hassle. **Bottom line: portions of the federal footprint in education will shift to Defense funding. The global readiness is geared for the economy, not education. This Bill should die quickly, but has many co-sponsors (main sponsor is from NC).
HR 399 (PATH Act, Pre-Apprenticeships To Hardhats Act) puts U.S. Labor in charge of developing paths for low-income and rural populations for CTE education, P3s (public private partnerships), and extend fromK-12 to veterans. **Bottom line: portions of the federal footprint in education will shift to Labor funding via competitive grants to States. Will allow for curriculum to shift to employer based needs, not academic prowess.
S 275/HR 898 (Skills Investment Act) (identical sister bills) will amend the IRS Code of 1986 for ‘lifelong learning accounts’. Will codify the change via switching from “Coverdell Education Savings Accounts” to “Coverdell Lifelong Learning” Accounts. Will instantly convert existing ESAs to lifelong learning ones. **Bottom line: the ‘follow the money’ follows the child for two reasons, a) data rape and b) career tracking. This system is based on the pay-as-you-go and is unconstitutional!
HR 827 (AI Jobs Act) lumps in ‘background summary’ in the long title of this Bill. “AI” is short for ‘Artificial Intelligence’. U.S. Laborwill head up the collaborative effort to streamline data rape for workforce needs and then strain it all through education. Will encompass STEM education, workforce, and economy. This Bill will use community colleges as the ‘tool of choice’ for much of the alignment (thus amending the HEA). **Bottom line: this will train us for those 21st century jobs as well as track us to no end. Seeing how the federal government defines AI is truly spooky and shouldn’t be glossed over.
Okay, Warriors, there you have it, the list of HEA amendments which prove out a few things: a) Many federal agencies have overreached (and will get to continue that process) into education to bastardize it. b) Look how few actually have anything to do will ‘real’ education and everything to do with trained minions. c) The global UN led STEM is woven into our education, funding, jobs, economy, and finally ourselves. Just like it was forecast back in 2010. d) Do you see the ‘choice’ bastardization via those ESAs (education savings accounts)? If ever anyone needed proof these accounts are 100% bogus, these Bills should do the trick. e) Our legislators are not hiding the global economy or workforce agenda at all. With the blatant use of ‘lifelong learning’, it gives total credence and support to the OECD’s (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development) rhetoric.
Warriors, the OECD is in cooperation with the UN and the US is in membership of BOTH.
