Not For The Faint Hearted

Author’s note: This article contains unpleasant material. Please remember, the evidence and research are provided for you to decide.  We must be prepared and informed Warriors, not reactive Warriors

Oh, my fellow Anti CCSS Warriors..We have seen so many awful things happen to education in the past few years together. We’ve seen an increase in the ‘workforce training’ being passed off as ‘academic prowess’.

We’ve seen shifts in how the attitudes, values, beliefs, and, thinking have become so twisted we may not recognize who our children are. Because ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) codified CCSS, we will continue to see unwelcome changes in our nation.

However, what’s changing our children right before our eyes?

Globalism, collectivism, Communism, Socialism, and…………

SATANISM

Because Globalism and all the other ‘isms’ are tied to Common Core (remember, the roots of CC are in the United Nations, which has  been traced to demonic activities and beliefs.)

Part of the ‘sales pitch’ surrounding all this? “Fun”. One of my previously published articles showed you how the ‘fun’ was a guise devised by Robert Muller to steer our children to workforce based education for a socialist benefit. While the article was pointing out how homeschoolers are being pulled into this.


Back in 2014, I wrote an article about Evil having no place in education. It shows you the awful connections between Bill Gates, UNESCO, the World Core Curriculum and the Lucifer Publishing Company.

However, it’s what follows, which is the truly unpleasant (downright disturbing) educational activities you need to know about.



ASSCs:

Warriors, that’s the abbreviation for the After School Satan Clubs in America. Maybe you remember the news from 2016 about the school district in GA which was being asked to start up an ASSC.

According to CBN’s (Christian Broadcasting Network) website, Clubs (as of 8/17) are in Los Angeles, Pensacola, Portland, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Tacoma and Springfield, Missouri. Below, in the screen shot, notice the ‘fun’ pictures used to draw our children’s attention to the ASSCs:

ASSCpic
(*Note, as of this writing, Satanic Temples are in TX, GA, NY, OR, CA, LA, FL, AZ, MA, CO, MI, and WA. Coming soon: MO and OK. Where there’s a Temple, the ASSCs will also be. According to all the sources, ASSCs are targeting similar Christian Clubs. I did not find any mention of any other faith based clubs being targeted.)


Warriors, according to all the information I found, these Clubs are available to all school choices, not simply public school children.  If the two smaller versions (above) don’t look ‘fun’ enough, look at the way the Satanic Temple ASSC’s page on their website has depicted the ‘mascot’:

hipdevil
Warriors, if you choose to investigate the website, notice that in the cartoon, the ‘hip devil’ is holding what resembles a candy cane.
I’ve provided you a look (below) at the permission slip with some added emphasis:

permitsevil

Why the red and orange circles? The CCSS Machine has gone to great pains to sell the nation on how ‘great’ the critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and character building are with the aligned curriculum and resources. These resources include after-school programs.

The 4Cs (collectivism, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity) are the anchors of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math). The 4Cs are the anchors of Common Core, Career and College Readiness, Next Gen Science, Career Tech Education, STEM, C3 (College, Career, and Civic Life) and whatever else CC’s been re-branded as (ie: “Future Ready”)

The 4Cs, College/Career Readiness, STEM, and all which connects them are embedded in ESSA, too! More globalism ties in ESSA include the “UDL”, Universal Design for Learning”, Universal Preschool, and, massive data mining to track students from cradle to grave.

You may also notice there’s a “Protect Children” campaign that also is a Satanic Temple project. It’s against corporal punishment. Below, is a picture of the letter they have available to send to your School Board against any type of corporal punishment, including isolation rooms:

protectchild
(*Note: from the “Protect Children” page, this disclaimer,Please note that this tactic has not yet been tested in court. If a student who registers is subsequently harmed and we launch a legal challenge, the State would need to argue that their right to abuse children supersedes the religious rights of students.”)

Warriors, the video contained in this undated  Newsletter is downright chilling. Not because of the images, the background ‘song’.

According to the Forbes article about the ASSCs, the writer also thought the video was chilling. Temper that with this article from the Federalist. It carries the tone of  ‘let’s step back a minute’. While I think what the author is sharing is worth listening to, I know, as a Mom, there is MUCH to be watchful of anytime Satan enters the picture.


Warrior Concerns:

Why did I include the video, if it’s so creepy?

1) We need to know! How can we protect our students from the CCSS Machine if we do not know all the ways IT seeks to destroy our children? After all, so much is available to them on-line. Have they seen this video?! We must know! It must be discussed.

2) Warriors, we need to understand with Satanism comes mind control and mental health concerns (The Temple has a group known as the Grey Faction).

3) I am not stating mental activities will be carried on during an ASSC gathering. But look at the ‘art’ pages below in the pictures. Strong mental images.

4) Knowing how damaging the SEL (Social Emotional Learning) is and how much of it is codified in ESSA, we should be VERY active in finding out what’s in our schools. With ESSA’s mandate for MORE after school, community wide programs, we MUST be very diligent in finding out what groups like the ASSCs are out there, how will they have access to your students? With the recent new appropriations from Congress which increase the amount of mental health ‘activities’ in/outside schools, we must DEMAND we be informed before any actions are taken!

For example, look below:

ASSCcolor
Warriors, let’s remember, the Clubs have access to young minds. Once they ‘see’ something like this (below), how will they ‘un-see’ it?? In 2014, I showed you a similar issue with a children’s book of ABCs.

asscmindimage

Warriors, this is the flag of the Satanic Temple from Facebook. Remember, they are the same group running the After School Satan Clubs:

ASSCflag
A Last Concern, based on Evidence:

Warriors, I know this is quite a bit to process. Believe me, I know. However, remember when I shared near the beginning that the CCSS Machine is rooted in the UN? So much of what’s above is also in the CCSS Machine. Is Satanism present in the United Nations?

From 2009, this article reveals the symbolism found in the New York headquarters. From 2016, this article from the New American Magazine ties the UN, Satanism, and the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) together. The ‘common’ bond? It appears to be the combined efforts of Robert Muller and Alice Bailey (a known occultist).

Closing:

Warriors, due to the season we are in, so close to Halloween, keep a watchful eye for anything which seems to harm your family (pets included). We know the CCSS Machine is full of tricks. We know ESSA is no gift of greatness for our education system. We understand the dangers of any ideas which do not fit our family belief system, MUST not be indoctrinated.

A Response

To my fellow anti CCSS Warriors, by default this includes those against the federally led education overhaul, as well as the global overreaches.

We know, from research, that all this can be traced to one source. The United Nations. By default, that encompasses the UNESCO arm. *UNESCO means United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. (To be precise, the ‘z’ is an American spelling, the official spelling uses a ‘s’.) We also know from research that what we have known as education (academics) is becoming ‘education’ (workforce training).

While I’ve seen many anti CCSS Warriors jump up and down with glee over the U.S. State Department’s announcement that the nation is leaving UNESCO, I am not among them.  I will admit, it SOUNDS like a good move, but as always, the research STILL points to many ties which, UNESCO membership or NOT, the US will still be bound by. I’ll say it now, I am choosing to remain on the ‘offense’ side of this War Vs the Core. 

Many media resources happily shared the US’s news about leaving UNESCO, but how many of them included in their headlines that We the People will have to wait until the end of 2018? Do we really think after the many years of the UN’s foundation laying educational overreach, that a measly year will be all it takes to truly be free of UNESCO? The CCSS Machine includes UN/UNESCO.

We have to look beyond the headlines, Warriors!

Some Facts:
1) Go to the U.S. State Dept. website right now and look at their headlining article. It’s not that the US is leaving UNESCO, it’s that we MUST have more STEM, especially for women! This is a UN ‘play by the book’ move, if ever there was one!! In fact, this comes right out of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) Tool Kit.  As we know, the SDGs use ‘education’ as a ‘change agent’ for all kinds of indoctrination.

StateSTEM
In this article for Women and STEM, it states just how committed to STEM the Trump Administration is. Warriors, if ever there was a ‘hiding in plain sight’ statement which reveals the continued shift to un-American ideals, it’s that the DC leadership has totally sold out to this. The article also shows how the President has laid a foundation to cement STEM in America with the NSF and NASA programs. (Both are CCSS Machine supportive)

In the State Department’s “Other News”?  Is the fact the US and China are welcoming 3 more partnerships for economic and technology purposes. So, it’s basically an agreement for MORE STEM (although not using the “STEM” acronym). STEM means “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math”.

2) In fact, a few days ago I exposed much about the UNESCO/UN and their STEM and STEAM (STEAM is STEM with the “Arts” embedded.).

3) Following that information, I showed you how the UN/UNESCO, the WSIS (World Summit on the Information Society) and the use of technology in a “Matrix” form that’s already embedded in the US (and the rest of the world) and will NOT be going away.

wsisunesco
The yellow circles are highlighting that UNESCO is in charge of each of the categories. This is only 1 page of the WSIS/UN’s joint work. UNESCO is only shown 3 times in this screen shot, HOWEVER, the 3 categories are ICT (Information and Communications Technology), Media , and Knowledge! The black boxes show the SDG #4 which is education for all.

4) The US still owes UNESCO money, over $500 million to be exact. UNESCO uses part of the money it receives to oversee our American historic sites which are considered World Heritage sites.
usdebtunesco

5) UNESCO has several P3s (Public Private Partnerships) involved in the World Heritage Sites. How many of these American or American-tied groups will be willing to leave UNESCO?

6) What about the time between now and when the US leaves UNESCO? Well, the US becomes a kind of silent partner. It’ll be around to keep a watchful eye. HOWEVER, that means ‘education’ will still be up for alignment! Also, there’s a big question about the next UNESCO leader.

7) The UN/UNESCO is really pushing AI (artificial intelligence), especially in ‘education’. This article from the Mirror (UK) is down-right creepy. My fellow anti CCSS Warrior, Alex Newman wrote and spoke about the AI being used to advance 2030 Agenda (of which the SDGs are now a part of. Previously, the SDGs were with Agenda 21, but 2030 is the newer version). Here’s what I found out about AI. Again, all this connects back to the massive WSIS/UN/UNESCO data control you see in #3 above.

8) From 2002, an article detailing why (then) Pres. Reagan removed the US from UNESCO. It appears the concern for media control is almost being overlooked in our current situation. This won’t be going away simply because our current Administration plans to remove America from UNESCO.

2002UNESCO

9) The infamous UNESCO/Gates ‘Cooperation Agreement haunts us to the this day. It is THE single most telling root of the UNESCO plan for American ‘education’! This shift is SO embedded in America, thanks to WIOA(Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), and HEA (Higher Education Act) (to name a few laws), that our extraction from UNESCO won’t mean anything different. Add to this the UNESCO (Huxley) idea of what American education should become. After all, it plays right into the UNESCO/Gates Agreement.

schaflyarticle
Also thanks to the UN, our individual States have ‘pimped out’ their schools. In this article, I show you how MN went first back in the 1980s.
Finally, for #9, the UNESCO Publication 356. It lays out what ‘global education’ should be like. There’s a tremendous emphasis on ‘commonalities’. (*Note: I couldn’t find a date of publication, but this document has been around a while.)

10) Back in the 1960s (87th Congress), there was no problem with announcing the UNESCO was Communism after our children. So, what has happened between then and now to go from ‘no way’ to ‘hey, have our kids’?! The CCSS Machine is what’s happened!

11) Back in 2010, (then) U.S. Sec. of Education, Arne Duncan addressed UNESCO. Consider his remarks and how they fit into what was being coerced upon our States. Add to that the 2014 UNESCO Report for how far the shift to Universal Design for Learning (embedded in ESSA) had progressed.

What about Secretaries King and DeVos? Have they spoken out to stop UNESCO? Dr. King is currently the head of The Education Trust which is heavily funded by Bill Gates and other CCSS Machine members. Also at the Education Trust is Amber Arellano. Her biography at the Ed Trust reveals she was previously at the UN’s High Commissioner on Human Rights.

DeVos is mentioned in this Truth in American Education article as well as Sec. Tillerson (State Dept.) as ‘playing’ President Trump with ‘education’. The UN has recognized DeVos’s family business (Amway) as one of the top companies in the world practicing biodiversity (a big component of the SDGs). Be sure to listen to the entire video below. It is from the late 1980s.

Below is a screen shot for you so you can see the other UN accolades for Amway:

AmwayUN

12) UNESCO and aligning teachers has been happening for quite a while. HOWEVER, it will not go away just because the US is leaving UNESCO. In fact, in 2015, the Incheon Declaration was made for all Member States and their commitment to adhering to the SDGs (Warriors, remember, education is Goal #4). As 2030 Agenda compliance dictates, that means our US teachers will have to have their professional development align!

UNESCOedgoal

 

You can see the International Task Force on Teachers (formed 2008, as part of the Onslo EFA (Education For All) meeting) Part 2 Strategy Plan. The Plan was completed in 2016. 

Closing:

Warriors, I realize this may not be a well received article. Truth usually isn’t easy to hear. I do have some optimism about the US leaving UNESCO, but with all this evidence, I am being very cautious in my thinking. I think we all should be cautious. I know we all MUST speak the truth about the CCSS Machine. I want to thank the many dedicated Warriors who supplied their documents for this article.

*I purposefully chose to NOT use any type of wording or featured picture which could alert social media as to my topic. I know it has the distinct possibility of being blocked. When you share, please keep this in mind.

I Might be Banned IF…

Hello, Warriors!

It’s been a busy week and a half for me. Child Abuse in the Classroom’s national grassroots campaign kicked off, interviews to prepare for, webinars to attend, and, a video ‘class’ on the UN’s grasp on American education..enough to make me dizzy. Some even called me ‘ditzy’. Oh well, all in the life of an outspoken education activist.

So, what do I mean by the title you read? “I might be banned IF”….I told the truth…again.
Facebook banned me for doing so…again. By now, not only am I NOT surprised, I am saddened. Freedom of speech, at least according to the Facebook ‘police’ is heavily censored. I could understand if what I have to say was truly awful, but, the truth?? Seriously??

 

What Got Me Banned:

Quite simply, my latest video presentation. Here’s the link. If that link doesn’t work, here’s another way to access the audio. The audio version will not have the images I shared during the video, but you will be able to still get the idea that what evidence I have uncovered is key. Warriors, please share these resources. My thanks to the Warrior who created the audio version.

The research links from the video:
The first link I shared is for the Child Abuse Campaign. It has a section of its own below.

I touched on HR 3358 during the video. Use the website I embedded to search for it. This next week, I’ll be diving into this bill for a closer look.

One thing I didn’t point out, but intended to was the use of the Smurfs to push the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

During the video, I referred to my blog to access the articles by topic. As you know, I’ve devoted several years to researching education. One of the articles which sparked me to get involved was by Tom DeWeese. I not only gave you a bit of history with Tom’s article, but I also gave you a bit of what’s been happening since then and is directly related.

The technology push in America is also traceable to the UN. Read all about it, here.

One of the biggest things I shared with Warriors, is the color psychology behind the SDGs. There are two links you MUST visit! The first one is from a NGO (non government organization) run by a large group of Catholic women. The second one is from a group of ‘stakeholders’.
The UN has some serious mandates about using the logo and colors of the SDGs. Find these 2 links and see how strict it all is.

You’ll find the Global Alliance for Monitoring Education is funding assessments on a global level which fits right in with the UN’s agenda.

To see the CIPP (context, input, process, and, product) model for assessing (based off the Latin American assessments all UNESCO member-states are to use), visit the highlighted link. The CIPP image is a bit fuzzy. Here’s another resource to try.
To see the CIPP research (for measuring service based learning (aka: skill based learning), look here.

To see the UN’s definition and purpose of assessments (a ‘must’ for the 2030 Agenda), go here.

To hear the US President and the US Ambassador to the UN (Haley) re-commit the US to the UN’s reform, you have these 2 sources. Remember, Warriors, it isn’t so much what IS said sometimes as it is what ISN’T said. By committing us to the UN’s agenda, these leaders are speaking for us. We did NOT ever say we wanted UN in our US education!



Child Abuse In The Classroom:

“OUR GOAL:  To repeal ESSA and President Obama’s Executive Order 12866 which changed the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations to allow our children’s data and private information–including teacher-generated, anecdotal, psychological analysis–to be shared without parental knowledge or approval.”

Warriors, we MUST have tens of thousands of citizens join us to make the grassroots effort truly pay off. To accomplish a ‘repeal and restore’ tactic of this nature, massive numbers of outraged citizens are needed. Please visit the website, see the ESSA’s violations against all our children; learn the loopholes of FERPA.

Things I’ve found since the video was recorded AND are related!

Global Citizens:

What a Global Citizen must believe and act out daily:


(*Note this is from a preschool) If you’d like to see a ‘grown-up’ definition of becoming a global citizen, visit this website. (*Note: This resource’s history is one you’ll need to read to believe!)

Then this proclamation by a US citizen:
asseen

The Global Citizenship Initiative’s website has a Report you simply HAVE to see. It is the Report Card for each nation involved in the organization. Of course the US is a member.
Below is how ‘we’ are ranked as far as aligning to the Initiative:

globalcitizeninitiative
Warriors, it’s vital to point out that the top 3 nations (Denmark, Sweden, and, Norway) “Leading the Way” in this Initiative are ones we repeatedly see our education systems compared to  OR lamented over that the US isn’t MORE like these nations when it comes to education! Stop comparing!! When this happens, we are actually encouraging our US education system to become Un-American!!!

The Global Education Associates openly participates in the UN activities. The US, is a member country. You’ll find the Eden Project is also a part of the GEA (Global Education Associates)

The P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills) is a well known CCSS Machine member organization. But did  you know they are ‘buddies’ with the UN?! That’s right, the ‘buddies’ have been working together to ruin American education since 2013.

Not only is the P21 up to its neck in the UN’s activities, but they are also pushing the 21st Century Community Learning Centers. These Centers are most definitely a globalizing move as well as being embedded in ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). P21’s latest Report shows how our babies (18 months to 6 years old) can learn BETTER when involved in a 21st CCLC.

babyp21
Since so much of ESSA has technology as an educational ‘resource’, it’s important to connect that back to the UN’s push for technology (see the links above I shared; as well in the video). Warriors, look at the evidence directly above.  It’s from a group known as ‘CUE’. Cue loves to lobby legislators. They are also partners with inACOL (International Assoc. for K-12 Online Learning). In 2016, inACOL gave a proposal to the UN for the 2030 Agenda in education. (*Note, thanks to Warrior Victoria for the CUE lead.)

unescoinacol

If you’ve heard of a “New Tech” school, it’s part of the combination of efforts in educational reform. According to the NTN (New Tech Network), students are BETTER College/Career Ready Graduates! Here’s their Report stating this. (*Note: “The New Tech Network (NTN) of nearly 200 schools in 28 states..” contains about 72,000 children.) When you access the Report, be sure to read the President’s remarks. You’ll find that global citizenship is among the themes of these schools.

Closing:

So, Warriors, there you have it. You, too, can be banned for sharing the truth about the CCSS Machine! So, speak loudly, speak daily, and speak out to save our nation!

Seeing More About Education?

Warriors Against the Core, make no mistake, I am not a fan of MORE  student-led education as a solution to the problems in American education. I believe that teachers make much more difference in education than the CCSS Machine has reduced them to.

seymour

 Student-led school makes as much sense as putting them in charge of making dinner when they’re 6 months old.

Teachers are NOT meant to be relegated to merely being a warm body in a room. That’s totally NOT why these ladies and gentlemen became interested in education, it’s not why they went to college, or became massively in debt to earn those teaching degrees. 

teachersigh

Warriors, evidence has proven that the target of the CCSS Machine’s design on modern classrooms is ‘more student, less teacher’.  It certainly gains momentum with guru-like quotes similar to the one you see in the screen shot. (“Less Us, More Them”)

We have teachers for a purpose. It isn’t to baby-sit, it isn’t to watch his/her students glued to a computer. It’s to lead them! It’s to lead them well. It’s to show other humans how to not only gain information, but to help shape them. Reducing a teacher’s role to what ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is, is flat out criminal.

Telling a teacher that due to Common Core (or whatever label is slapped on it) he/she MUST do this or that is wrong.

Warriors, I’m sure you seen a shift in teaching responsibilities before ESSA’s passage. I know I have.  

In fact, I recently shared with you the definitions about learning in the ESSA Era. It’s where teacher AND student are considered in the same context! While this might be okay in some educational settings, an across-the-board, one-way-to-educate-everyone is a landmine waiting to be stepped upon!

Modern day education reform has re-assigned the control in the classroom. What is going to happen when things go awry? We’ve seen time and time again how the CCSS Machine has turned both teachers and students into guinea pigs, will be let them experiment even more in 2017-18’s school year?!

By putting the kids in charge of education, it shifts the burden of responsibility. It changes ‘accountability’. It can set them up to fall flat on their faces. It also will cause a much more conducive platform for the Delphi move of a nanny state school and its control

Another dangerous mindset we can connect to the CCSS Machine’s urging of having kids as teachers, is the rhetoric connected to education: ‘Let ’em fail, it’ll teach ’em better than I can.’ “Failing means grit; grit is good for them, especially when they are young.” This type of thinking and actions are quite frankly, hard-hearted!

‘Rigor and grit’ do not speak to a student who is scared, who has NO earthly idea what is expected of them, or when they are having a bad day. A computer cannot hug a student or give a ‘high five’ a child. Likewise, setting them up to fail on purpose is mean-spirited.

It’s like tying their shoe strings together and then laughing when they fall. Or, the CCSS Machine’s passive-aggressive style of ‘Is that the best you can do? You should try harder!’

Warriors, I’m not suggesting to baby every student at every age, but certainly, we must have guidance and leadership that is centered on how to educate in many different ways.

See how this may translate in a picture version, below:

styles

Source to Mosston and Ashworth’s Spectrum can be found here. I’d like to point out that they very clearly state that ‘variety’ is the spice in teaching.

CCSS Machine’s idea of ‘teaching’ with variety is there is almost NONE! Has this changed since ESSA? Not much!

 

PipelineR10


This is what ‘rigor’ is designed for. It’s failing us every day, in every State, and at every age level.

A visual for ESSA ‘teaching’:

essawheel.jpg
The Source to see the ‘hamster wheel’ for yourselves is here.

After all, if we’re being honest, thanks to ESSA, WIOA, HEA, federal and state legislation, and the CCSS Machine, computers and digital have BECOME the TEACHERS!

So Who Was Seymour Papert?

If you looked at the featured screen shot (‘less us/more them’), you probably saw the name “Seymour Papert”.

Seymour was considered a great ‘technology-before-its-time’ kind of professor.

Seymour was teaching/leading at MIT (which by the way is a huge CCSS Machine member). He was credited with predicting kids and computers as the learning method of the future way before most folks. (*Note: the “21st Century Learning” page provided at the bottom of the highlighted link is broken. However, I was able to find this, instead. Warriors, you should ‘love’ the global learning/leadership tag.)

Back in 1995, C-Span broadcast an Education and Technology hearing. Seymour Papert was a witness. The entire video is over 2 hours, but I urge you to listen. Note who was attending the hearing, who was speaking then. Listen to the tones about the excitement for this advance in education. Source

After MIT, Seymour landed in Maine. This article (2000) reveals how his ‘technology education’ activism can be tied to (then) Gov. Angus King. King is now a Senator for Maine. Is King supportive of more technology in the classrooms? (In the 2000 article, you’ll see how he wanted a computer given to every 7th grader.) In 2017, is his support still there?  Absolutely! (*Many State leaders are convinced a computer for every student is a marker of successful education.)

Do these leaders understand (completely) what this is REALLY doing to our teachers? I do not believe they do.

In 2015, (then) President Obama signed the “Computer Science for All” Initiative. Seymour was said to be a ‘father of CS (Computer Science)’ in this resource:

cspapert

Seymour died in 2016. His MIT obituary is lionizing, to say the least. I only include this because the Professor’s work proves his thinking about children and the way they learn was altered in Switzerland by a philosopher and psychologist Jean Piaget. Seymour was credited with leading the revolution for technology in 3 distinct areas: a) children, b) AI (artificial intelligence, which is also replacing teachers), and c) education via technology.
(*Note: Piaget was a co-director for UNESCO as well as an honorary Harvard doctorate recipient. As you know, both Harvard and UNESCO are CCSS Machine members.) PBS’s “A Science Odyssey” ended their Piaget article with this quote:

“Piaget is widely recognized as the greatest developmental psychologist of the century. His ideas have been refined and added to, but they remain the foundation of child psychology.”

 

Seymour’s “Legacy” Lives On:

So, we’ve seen a distinct shift in education, Warriors. We’ve seen a distinct disrespect for teachers in our nation. While switching our students ‘on’ to computer learning, putting them in charge of said learning, we’re actually turning them ‘off’ to adults and the leadership they can provide.

We’re also seeing the adult’s authority (in appropriate measures and settings) become less and less. Why? All the ‘self-direction’. History has proven (and will continue to)  how far a person gets when the education they thought they worked hard for wasn’t ‘real education’ at all.

Technology is a poor substitute for human interaction.

So, how is Seymour’s ‘legacy’ about kids and computers living on? A couple of ways:
STEM and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math; Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math). We also can find Seymour-ish leaders, like the ones at Vision, Education, and Media (VEM)

VEMSource 

Warriors, as we know, STEM is a farce as part of education. No, STEM is more about a trained workforce. So is STEAM. The evidence has been given countless times here on my blog. (*Note: the highlighted link is only one such set of documented facts.)

KQED published a short article explaining Seymour’s beliefs about ‘child’s play’ earlier this year.

Warriors, the highlighted “Computer Science for All” link also will show you how Seymour’s ‘legacy’ is living on and will continue to be seen in the 2017-18 school year.

Closing:

Earlier this year, I shared with you how the global AI (Artificial Intelligence) was taking over American education. It certainly will render human teachers as ‘obsolete’, thanks to federal law.

So, how is it surviving beyond the law? Followers of the UNESCO global ed push, most certainly. Fans of Seymour and the others like him, will also carry technology on.

However, also look to groups like the CCSSO (Council of Chief State School Officers). They, my fellow Warriors, are a huge root into why our teachers are in the plight they’re in AND our students are learning less and less, every day in every State.

Lastly, ‘personalized learning’ is a huge educratic term for justifying the shift from teacher-central learning to ‘self-directed’. Every day, every State, my Warrior friends.

 

 

Illusions of Higher Aspirations

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’ve known for quite a while that the CCSS Machine was going to go after the HEA (Higher Education Act). Among the EOGs and EOCs back in April and May of 2017, Congress* didn’t ‘disappoint’. While graduations were celebrated and aspirations for each of our students was plotted out, the CCSS Machine’s agenda ground down the existing HEA (orginally introduced in 1965; it’s last re-athorization was 2008).
(*Currently, S806 and HR 1880 have been introduced as amendments to the HEA, but read more like replacements.)

We also have known from this blog and similar ones that the HEA is the LAST link in the chain of education laws which must be re-written to complete the top/down; global to US transformation in converting ‘education’ to glorified work training.

IF we look at the supportive side of education reform (which embraces the global worker shift), it’s no surprise that their illusions are being shared and spewed out everywhere.
For example the NEA (National Education Association) has said the rewriting of the HEA is needed. It’ll be great to have more affordable college, recognition of professors as ‘stakeholders’, and, improve teaching PD (professional development). Warriors, as we know, all these buzz phrases are code for two CCSS Machine agenda goals:
                                          Control and alignment

If you’d like to see how I traced the NEA (and the AFT) to the Education International and how they all tie back to the UN/UNESCO, find it here.

*Is the American way of paying for higher education in need of help? Absolutely! However, as I’ve stated before (based on mountains of evidence and research) funneling EVERYTHING through the CCSS Machine’s education reform is the WRONG way to correct our system!!!

Warriors, the rest of this article will dive into the Senate’s Version of the College for All Act of 2017; The House’s 1880 Bill will be covered in a separate article tomorrow.)

S 806’s Bill/Language:

Warriors, what DOES this bill the NEA is foaming at the mouth about, REALLY say?

1) Was introduced 4/03/17 and is in the hands of the Senate HELP Committee (under Sen. Alexander’s thumb). (*Note: Warriors, remember when ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) was signed into law, Alexander promised us with vigor that the HEA was next. His 1980s ‘prophecy’ of alignment babies to a life long track is playing out.)
2) The Bill is 51 pages long. You can access it here.
3) There is one main sponsor and 5 co-sponsors: Sanders, Warren, Harris, Blumenthal, Murphy, and Gillabrand.
4) Short title: “College for All Act of 2017”

Student and State information:
5) Title 9 will be amended for use as a federal/state partnership in funding to eliminate tutition. Grants will be used as the illusion for greatness.
6) Will impact those students in the ESSA age range (preK to 12th grade) in early college programs, dual enrollment, or concurrent enrollment. (*Note: this is a back door access to the educational choices outside the traditional education system.) The illusion of attainment is used here.
7) Since this is addressing a post-secondary education law, all ages will be impacted and aligned. The illusion of equity and equality is used here.
8) Grants awarded will be at the Secretary of Education’s choosing to enable the States.
The illusion of State led eduation is used here.
9) There’s a 33% ‘non federal funds’ clause on Page 6. It’s a requirement, not an option.
The illusion of ‘stakeholder’ control is used here.
10) The Secretary of Education is given power to challenge the States in their projected enrollment formulas (bottom of Page 15 into 16). On Page 17, it shows the GDP for the State being challenged as coming into this formula’s equasion. The illusion of State led education is being used again.
Other notes: parents tax records, independent students and their tax records, data tracking, targeting the working class and the low-income class, Sec. of Ed deemed requirements by each State annually in applying for grants, and more.

Teacher and PD Information:
11) Of the grants and non federal funding received, any money left AFTER applying to the students will be applied for teachers and their training (includes on-going PD).
An illusion of ‘stakeholder’ importance is used here.
12) An increase in staff (full-time, tenured or tenure-track), especially ‘instructional faculty’. The illusion of true teaching is used here.
13) Provisions for anything a faculty member could need (includes the office). PD supports…and shared goverance. With so many of the PD opportunities available to schools now being aligned to the CCSS Machine’s agenda, this one has the illusion of objective leadership.
14) Part-time, outside the classroom work will be compensated. Again, Warriors, who is footing the bill for all this?? We are!! An illusion of economics is used here.
15) Increases in dual enrollment, concurrent enrollment, early college, and any other ‘student success’ program as deemed appropriate by the Sec. of Education and the Peer Review Group, not your State or local leaders. The illusion of leadership, power, and school choice factor in here.
16) TRIO and GEAR UP Programs (a federal education effort) will be increased. I’ve covered how aligned to the CCSS Machine’s workforce/education plan these programs are. The illusion of State-led leadership, yet again.
17) Increases in Work Study programs will most certainly be found in S806. There will also be a recalculation in the funding of Work Study Programs.  Expect billions of taxpayer funds and private money to pay for these. The illusion of living within our means as a nation is played up here.

You’ll also find what the fed/State funding and non federal funding cannot be used for (such as building a new stadium or paying the school administrators). I hope you are ready for the price tag of all this ‘free’ higher education, Warriors. Look below:

S806Pricetag

At LEAST $41 Billion in funds. Notice the language leaves the final business quarter for 2017 and the entire years from 2019 – 2027 wide open to whatever is necessary!! If you read the next paragraph after the above screen shot, you’ll notice that the language includes federal obligated funds from Oct. 2016 to Sept. 2017. Just in time for the 2017’s 4th quarter to begin. It would appear an illusion of purposed and pre-planned alignment is being used.
***The price tag for the increases for TRIO and GEAR Up reach into the trillions for each year between 2018 and 2027 (Page 41)
***Work Study Funding by each fiscal year is on Pages 41/42. Warriors, note that it is at the Sec. of Education’s decision, not the States’. The power doesn’t stop there. Any regulation surrounding the calculations of the reformulation of these Work Study Programs is also given.

The ‘career readiness’ and how it will be tied to Pell Grants can be seen on Page 43. It will be part of the increases in Job Development Programs and their locations. This directly ties to the U.S. Dept. of Labor. Again, Warriors, the union of these 2 federal agencies overreaching into education is visible.

*Note: If you have student debt, or know someone who is about to apply for funding college, you’ll need to read the fine print from Pages 44 to 51. While it appears undergrads will have a lower interest rate, it also appears grad students will see an increase. Since I am not a financial expert by any stretch, please research this language carefully.

Closing:

Warriors, as you can see, our Senate has totally betrayed us. Being a free nation should mean we honor our Constitution first and foremost. We know the CCSS Machine has shredded its importance. If not, we would not see the trillions of dollars ear marked to further the illegal overreach into education. What will the HR 1880 (a ‘sister’ bill) hold for us? We’ll find out tomorrow.

In the meantime, contact your Senators and tell them, NO to ‘free’ college! If we don’t go broke paying for it, our future generations will. “Free” college is a collective, good for the Socialists movement, not an independent freedom of choice based on the ideals of our Republic.

Education’s “Cooked Goose”

Warriors, we know education in America can be considered a ‘hot mess’. The state of education in the ESSA Era (Every Student Succeeds Act) could also be referred to as a ‘train wreck’.

For this article, I chose ‘cooked goose’. Why? It’s meaning as a phrase expresses spoiling plans; ruining someone’s opportunities. In other words, succeeding won’t happen.

Warriors, plainly stated, ESSA will NOT give our student success at what THEY want. It is designed to link itself to the WIOA, STEM Act, HEA, and all other related workforce/education laws. (*WIOA: Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act; STEM is short for Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math; HEA: Higher Education Act)

Before we point the finger exclusively to Washington, D.C.; we must point it back to the CCSS Machine and it’s association to UNESCO.
************************************************************************************
Yes, before Bill Gates signed that ‘one curriculum for every child’ agreement (2004), there was the UNESCO publication called the International Classification of Standards.
************************************************************************************
The document was used as a basis for a presentation in 2009 by a team of ‘education experts’. Sutton and Golder. What was the point of this team in using a 1997 document?
***********************************************************************************
It was the same thing which prompted Gates to sign his agreement:

By Aligning TECHNOLOGY in EDUCATION, More ALIGNMENT in LIFE

For where’s there technology, there’s data. Where there’s data, there’s money to be made.
Quality education? Left by the wayside, Warriors.
************************************************************************************

Who Are Sutton and Golder?

Dr. Staurt Sutton is from the University of Washington at Seattle
Diny Golder
(aka: Diny Golder-Dardis) is a co-founder of P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills) She is also key to JES and Company.
(*Note: the embedded link for Golder is to a 2003 Symposium paper about increasing technology. You’ll see her roles in both capacities mentioned. You’ll also see the U.S. Dept. of Education’s involvement. You’ll also be directed to some external links about the CEO Forum. I was unsuccessful accessing these. However, I did find a 2001 publication by the CEO Forum. It’s cover states it all.)

CEO


Back to Sutton and Golder’s involvement:
Together this team produced 3 white papers together. All 3 were based on increasing technology in our classrooms; for teachers and students. They wrote these 3 papers for the ASN (Achievement Standards Network).

If you’ve not heard of the ASN, it was created by Golder and Sutton with grant money (2 grants) awarded them by the NSF (National Science Foundation), under the JES and Company’s name.

NSF is the group which created the acroynm “STEM” for marketing purposes in education. STEM is a tool used by the UNESCO for pushing the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) in education.

Helping expand the ASN was a generous Gates grant award in 2012 to JES and Co.

In 2013, my dear anti CCSS Warrior friend, Donna Garner, published an article tying ASN, Jes and Co. to the CSCOPE (TX’s supposedly not-CCSS educational framework and standards) and the EdGate organization.

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

ASN is now owned by D2L. D2L was founded in 1999 by John Baker of Canada. Today, D2L has some of the biggest CCSS Machine members as partners. Their ‘job’? Tying more technology and education together.)

Other Sutton and Goldar Work:

In 2008, it was a paper on matching education resources to education standards for all the grade levels between K and 12th grade. This document appears to be for the National Science Digital Library. It’s about how to use metadata.
In 2009, it was all about discovering concepts in education via learning objectives. It is in this document they base their findings and solutions off of the 1997 UNESCO Report. (*Note: the 2010 paper they wrote was for Australia’s curriculum and configuring it to RDFs).

SuttonGolderUN
UNESCO:

The 1997 Standards document was updated, just 2 years later (1999). It is in this one where you’ll begin to see the UIS (UNESCO Institute for Statistics) begin to surface.

STATISTICS means DATA; DATA needs MINING to be put into STATISTICS.
*********************************************************************************
Look at the way it’s portrayed on the website:

undata

Look at the reality of data ‘transformation’:

UNdatatrack

Warriors, why would I use ‘track’? Think about it, the technology increases in American classrooms are designed to track progress; to measure mental abilities. These results are then used to track the courses/classess and eventual careers. ESSA, WIOA, and HEA embed it. STEM increases it! There’s another reason I chose the word ‘track’:

pressureon
Warriors, ‘technical’ means technology use, which we know is data. We also know, that technology is part of ‘innovation’. Innovation has been used as a tool to update ‘infrastructure’. Education is being used as a tool to pump up jobs and the economy.

Do we see ANYWHERE in these contrived plots: a child’s desire to become what THEY want? Do we see anywhere how teachers can TEACH without conformity?! NO!

        Education’s goose has been royally cooked!

I urge you to read the information from the above screen shot here. It will lay out the indicators by which our students and teachers will be aligned to. It will explain how this data is to be used, and include the GAML (Global Alliance to Monitor Learning). The GAML is doing its own ‘cooking geese’ with assessments and data mining.

Warriors, remember, the SDGs are all to be in place by 2030.

Tying This Back To The American Push for Technology/Data:

Warriors, the way ESSA is written, an huge increase in technology, data mining is in the works. It is because of the foundational shift created in part, by folks like Sutton and Goldar, that we are so far down the path to comply with the U.N.
Sutton and Goldar are hardly alone. We know the CCSS Machine has been infiltrating companies, legislators, and everywhere in between to force us to assimilate into the overall plan to ruin education.

One of the biggest data mining tools which unites education and jobs, here in America are the SLDS and the WQDI (Student Longitudinal Data System and Workforce Quality Data Initiative). These track your student (regardless of their educational choice) from the classroom to their careers…and beyond.

First of Its Kind

Warriors Against Fed Ed, Common Core, and, Global Education’s takeover in America, we find ourselves approaching the end of June 2017. As I said earlier in the year, summer would not be a time the CCSS Machine would slow down its continual grinding down of education.

To that end, a CCSS/Global Ed laced Conference is just getting started. It’s the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) 2017 Conference. It’s meeting in Texas. Late Sunday afternoon, #ISTE and #GlobalEd17 were trending topics on Twitter.
The proganda was digusting. The painted on smiles of those attending and leading were deceiving.  Be sure to check all the latest ‘news’ out.

As I also stated earlier in the year, the summer is the ideal time for us Warriors to continue to arm ourselves with information to be ready for action when the new school year begins. The War Vs. the Core is NOT over, not by a long stretch.

Briefly, ISTE’s Connection To Global Education:

Warriors, back in 2015, I shared with you, an article titled “Tech Thursday: Global Day for Education”. It was the first time I’d run across ISTE. Quickly, just think “Microsoft” (and we know who THAT leads us to). Microsoft is the main sponsor of ISTE. Does it align the standards for technology in the classrooms to the dreaded CCSS (Common Core State Standards)? Absolutely. Does the ISTE apply its alignment to the re-branded names of CCSS, certainly! Where there’s international data, there’s got to be international data mining. That too, has an annual conference. Here’s an article where you can see the plethora of workshops devoted to harvesting education information.

Because technology is global, we know data created by technology is also global. However, the connections to global education and technology, which are very disturbing, (CCSS Machine propaganda uses ‘disruptive’) are the cultural mindset shifts hiding behind all those neat sounding apps and computer programs.

For example, from the article I’ve linked above, is a screen shot (below) where you ‘ll see the ‘global’ pledge. This pledge is used by all kinds of education related groups.

hardagon
With international technology comes the need for global education days. At least that’s what Harvard University and the others involved in the Global Education Conference Network believe. You can find out more about the Network in the article I’ve linked you to to learn more about the ISTE. You’ll also see how the AFT (American Federation of Teachers) is connected. (*Note: both the NEA (National Education Association and AFT) have ‘bought’ into the Education International, an organization with ties to UNESCO (you know, an arm of the United Nations. UNESCO is also known for it’s “Education for All” Program.) You can find out more about this, here.

Related: One of my most in-depth global education articles can be accessed here. It is from earlier this year and jam packed with information you can use to ready yourselves for the 2017-18 school year. (*Note: global education is present in all educaiton choices and will continue to seek out ways in which to lessen those choices until there is no choice at all. ESSA, Every Student Succeeds Act, is a great example for reducing school choices, not increasing them.)

ISTE 2017 and Global2017:

Warriors, since the ISTE Conference is technology based, you know the latest and most aligned resources will be available to you, even if you can’t make it to TX. Here’s the schedule, with embedded links 
Wait, is there a separate Global Ed 2017 Conference at the same location?
From what I can find, no; the global education is part of the ISTE Conference. How? The location is the same.  See below:

isteglobal17

Warriors, you can sign up for free to access all the Global Education Network resources (you’ll want to see the Google classroom items, the lists of global organizations, the resources and those who’ve written them (I saw Steve Hardagon’s name pop up).

How to access all this? Visit this website, click on ‘visit’. Sign in (you can use your Facebook, Google Plus, or email if you don’t have an Iparticipate i.d.) Notice at the bottom of the page, that the P21, Inc (Partnership for 21st Century Skills) is a sponsor.
Access this list of global education organizations and people on Twitter. Even if you do no ‘tweet’ you can still find out about this CCSS Machine global members.

Why access all this? After all, it’s from the CCSS Machine. Warriors, if we are to be armed with the latest information, especially when it comes to technology and data mining, we must ‘hang out’ among the creators. Since so many of our schools are leaving parents, grandparents, and taxpayers in the dark, any advantage we can gain by seeing what the CCSS Machine is doing, is needed.

First Isn’t Always Best:

So far, Warriors, I’ve not said anything which relates to the title of this article. What is ‘first of its kind’? In the push for global technology, these two examples I want to leave you with. Ask yourselves, is this being planned for my school district? Is this where my tax dollars are going? Am I okay with the continued misuse of money to not educate students, but, to indoctrinate them?

Digital Portfolios may NOT be brand new, but a school district in AL is featured among the ISTE resources (and global education) for its first of its kind update. What’s the update? “Whole Story for the Whole Child”. This is about 30 minutes of video.

By giving the students a computer, showing them how to use it to lay out their lives, this portfolio COULD be used for other purposes. Such as, at the 3:25 mark (or just after it) a high school teacher reveals just ONE of the ‘other’ purposes: a track to see where each student needs to round themselves out for “college and career readiness”! (If you are new to the War vs Common Core, ‘College and Career Ready” is a re-branded name for the same thing.)

You’ll also have the person in charge of the federal funding for this AL school district explain how to start digital portfolios in your area. She will tell you that as school leaders implementing this you’ll WANT to look into each student’s personal life as well as their academic ‘lives’. Watch for the grade levels involved and the end result. (hint: by the times the students get to colleges, not enough is known about them)
Here is the website’s banner from the school district featured:

Warriors, so much of global education and technolgy involves STEM (Science, Engineering, and Math), but they also include STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math).

Both STEM and STEAM are not American. STEM is the marketing name dreamed up by the NSF (National Science Foundation) to incorporate the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. STEM and CCSS go hand in hand. STEM was introduced about the time the CCSS was rolled out. Common Core was the distraction; STEM was the real agenda for education. It’s all been researched and documented.  As far as STEAM, it too, is not American. It’s roots are from South Korea and brought to the US. If you’ve missed these facts, please find them here.

This leads me to another ‘first of its kind’ and in the nation. This time we’ll find it in TN.

dailysteam

Full article  (*Note: this was back in 2016). Warriors, notice the underlined portions of this published article. K-12 grades; Arts Innovation Zone, PBL(Project Based Learning) daily on STEAM. Do we have any idea how one-dimensional this is going to be for our littlest ones? Sure, the CCSS Machine talks it up that all kinds of engaging education will happen with STEAM, but every day?! True education honors that while engaging needs to happen, so does some down-time. So what’s happened to this one-of-a-kind school since 2016? A big dollar donation from a private company to go to a public school; the hope that those big bucks will prove STEAM can work for both inner city schools and rural schools. See the article here.

Closing:

Warriors, the bottom line to all the ISTE/global ed dribble is this:
“Learning without limits” will get us farther in education than ever before. Yeah, right…
