Not-so-Funny Money

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

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

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

clear-as-mud-1

SIBs and BitCoins:

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

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

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

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

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

Paying For Our ‘Sins’?

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

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

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

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

Using Gender For Their Agenda:

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Doing The DIB:

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

The UN’s Women’s Movement:

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

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

However, you’ve seen and read the evidence.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BS-Meter

Closing:

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

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

Wicked Web

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I’m so glad we are able to help each other find facts and truth main stream media leaves out. 

Recently, I shared an article with you about the new UNICEF initiative called “Generation Unlimited”. Not only were you able to see how it aligns with the G20 Education Declaration, but other global overreaches.

In response, I’ve had quite a few of you reach out with more connecting dots I hadn’t even heard of. Thank you!!

 

double_tro_m2173526

 

Warriors, we know the global overreaches impact the federally led overreaches we’ve seen in education. Like the intersections of a spider web, these catch the States and local education in a trap.

Through my research, as well as others like me, we’ve been able to see the federal legislation become endorsed and embraced by several Presidents, the current one included.

We’ve also seen mountains of evidence which show the support for the CCSS Machine led take over is from BOTH major political parties (even at the State levels of government).

Again, think of the spider-web like deceptions we’ve been handed as ‘truth’.

 

puppetpeople

 

Many of us have wondered just HOW embracing  the Trump Administration in all this educratic BS. After all, weren’t we promised by him that an end to globally (United Nations) led influence and programming was going to happen? Weren’t we told that data mining would end and that Common Core had to go?

Although the U.S. exit from UNESCO is to take place Dec. 31st, 2018, read this statement from the United States which pledges our continued support of the initiatives, ideals, etc. of UNESCO in SPITE of our ‘exit’.

In the remainder of this article, you’ll see what I hope to be new and important information in our War Vs the Global Core.

globeed

 Warrior Carol R has graciously agreed for me to share what she’s discovered about the overreaches by both (Republicans) Rs and  (Democrats) Ds:

 

christalk1To learn about the FCC’s mandates for children’s tv based education, go here.
To see how I tied not only to ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), but also to the United Nations and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), which is the UN’s biggest trap for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), go here. 


To learn about Ajit Pai, visit here. (*Note: as we know Pai’s stance on net neutrality has proven great for the CCSS Machine member groups like Verizon.) Then consider the digital economy tied to 5G (Fifth Generation cell phone communications). That digital economy depends on STEM heavily.

Of course, the UN fully embraces all of this.

To see the regionalism in ESSA, go here. (*Note: look for Item #8.)
Example of US government led regionalism: NASA is helping create SDG aligned via science. Read this.

5g2030
(Source)

Carol also shared that the U.S. has a lot of ties to the United Nations which come through some back doors into education. Maybe you knew about these, maybe not. However, to arm you with as much information, as always, here you go:

1) U.S Congressional “Smart Cities Caucus” was ‘kicked off’ in March 2018. The ties to education? Internet activity and workforce. (Remember, ESSA embedded workforce readiness as part of the birth to death alignment in education.) More on Smart Cities from the UN’s SDG Zone can be found here.

2) Venture Smarter, a P3 (Public Private Partnership) devoted to supporting the UN’s SDGs, especially in regionalism.

venturesmart
To learn more about leadership of Venture Smarter, visit here. To learn about their upcoming Ohio Conference (where you’ll see the city of Cincinnati is in a 2030 District) and the sponsors (includes the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security), go here.
To learn more about the IEEE 2017 Conference on Data Mining, my previous article will give you lots of information.

3) American Cities as UN Creative Culture hubs. That’s right, Warriors, since 2008 (Santa Fe, NM) and other cities (more recently, Paducah, KY) are tagged as collective centers for the arts. Funneled through the Visitors and tourism agencies in your town, you may find your residence in a UN designated hub.

The Arts are very much a part of the educratic shift. Especially under the UN’s SDGs. How? STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math). The Arts are just as controlled as the workforce based education. The National Endowments for Arts and Humanities, as well the National Assoc. for Music Education (NAME) sold out years ago to the CCSS Machine.
**************************************
Think about this, Warriors: so much about the shift in education to workforce means control. Then consider that much of the shift via the CCSS Machine points to socialism, as does the UN. Being an artist should mean creativity at YOUR discretion, not the State’s. Much like living under Stalin’s rule, artists HAD to subscribe to the beliefs of the government in order to paint or dance.

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

4) U. S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation
This particular part  of the U. S. State Department (housed in the U.S. Bureau of Education and Culture) not only ties to the UNESCO via the World Heritage sites, but relies heavily on P3s. You may not recognize this Bureau, but if you’ve heard of Fulbright Scholars/Teachers, then you know part of the Bureau.

Also connected to the U.S. State Dept. is USAID. I’ve covered their ties to the CCSS Machine before. You may be interested to know that the USAID also has an Ambassador Program. It’s tied to a 5 year contract with an education NGO (non governmental organization) based out of Pakistan.

From Chris, another dedicated activist, shared this. President Trump’s national security plan embeds the SDGs from the United Nations. See the screen shots below. 

usun18
Warriors, then look at this one:

damningSDG
(Source for both screen shots. Emphasis is mine.)

Warriors, let this sink in, the very President who is saying the U.S. will leave UNESCO, has woven the UN’s SDGs throughout his Security plans. As one of my dear Warrior friends compared this to : “withdrawing from UN councils while allowing UNESCO to control America’s K-12 standards, assessment and accountability policies is like allowing the pedophile down the street to watch your kids while you go to the capitol to fight porn.”

 

 

**Warriors, we must realize that several of our Presidents have aligned us to the globalization of America, not just one former one OR the current one! As I’ve urged you before, LOOK at the evidence, NOT the political party!**

usnow

President Trump’s National Security Plan:

Warriors, here’s the link to the 68 page National Security Strategy as laid out by President Trump.

Below, are the key word searches I did throughout the document. The key words were ones that show ties to the UN’s SDGs. To give you an idea of how these are woven in, use the ‘sustainability’ as an example. Like always, look for yourselves!
Sustainability is woven in 4 times. Under modernizing our military (p. 29), economics, growth and security (p. 38), business and trade; diplomacy and legislation (p. 39).
Key to all this is the Millennium Challenge Corporation.

Peace, 42 times; Poverty, twice; Education, 3 times {P. 18 ties to economy; P. 20 direct mention of STEM; and, P. 33 culture, commerce, and co-operation among nations}; Partnerships, 10 times; Water, twice; Land, 41 times; Equality, once; Food, once; Energy, 51 times; Innovation, 20 times; Technology, 20 times; Infrastructure, 32 times; Production, once; and, Communities, 12 times.


Closing:

Warriors, it’s tempting, to want to cast the evidence aside, especially when it comes to a political person we supported (or still support). We CANNOT afford to do this! As Warriors, we MUST face the fact that our leaders are NOT putting America first, therefore, they are not protecting us.

If we assume by voting by party things will improve, then we’ve become like the silk encased victims found in spider webs.

It’s also tempting to want to marginalize each other when truth like this comes out. I urge you to NOT do this!

We need each other to continue to stand up against tyranny! You love America, so do I. That is WHY we have been fighting for so long to expose and STOP this type of indoctrination via education.

The globalization of America is well under way, Warriors. Be the spider’s predator, not its prey.

By Association

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

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

ICYMI:

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

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

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

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

Here’s a “New” One:

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

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

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

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

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

If you wish to see the 2016-18 NAFSA strategy for globally aligned education in America, find the Plan here. If you’d like to learn about how NAFSA has broken American down into regions with on-going global education, be sure to check out this page.

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

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

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

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

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

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

ciesclip

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

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

common core crush
Nothing beats a trained mind, right?

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

GAMLuisreport

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

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

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

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

GESSTEM

(Source)

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

Closing:

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

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

Betting on Education

Hello, my Anti Fed Ed Warriors! I’m sure you’ve heard of ‘betting on the farm’ (which means you risk everything you have to win a bet or succeed with an investment or organization). I KNOW we’ve seen education bet on in this fashion since the CCSS Machine rolled into the classrooms. If you’re like me, you have fought long and hard to expose the under the table deals; reveal the backroom meetings, and so much more.

Recently, the U.S. Secretary of Education gave a speech where the tone was definitely MORE ‘betting on education’ was woven throughout. If you missed my scathing rebuttal to Betsy DeVos, I’ve included it here, for you. Be warned, Warriors, her speech was written to sound like ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is worthy of sainthood.

Warriors, we know the media loves to help sell lies to us these days, especially when it comes to education. If you look only at the headlines surrounding DeVos’s latest speech, you’ll be misguided in the notion that “Common Core is dead” . What the media leaves out is that her passion and poor leadership will send American children of all school choices to one sad conclusion:

Personalized digital learning is the ESSA way and as such, is the ONLY way to learn

Warriors, we’ve seen tons of research which proves ‘personalized learning’ is a farce. The fact it is continually tied to the digital push also proves that the ‘learning’ isn’t really taking in information. No, the digital personalized learning is all a data mining trap to force your student into a preconceived pigeon hole job.

deludeded

That DeVos is steering the bets on education and has pointed America to MORE Common Core/Career Tech/College and Career Readiness/STEM proves on thing:

                    The globalization of education will continue on ‘as is’.

Also, because DeVos’s devotion to digitally connected, personalized education seems so ‘pure’, consider this: she, via family business holdings, can literally profit from the use of digital computer and programs in the classrooms. My article from November 2016 shows where those holdings are.

If you have friends and family who are still convinced DeVos is a great champ for American education, show them the article. DeVos nor Trump have done one thing to rid our nation of Common Core. They’ve done everything to ensure the globalization of our nation’s classrooms continues.

BETT In The U.S. By Way Of The U.K.:

Warriors, I first learned of BETT ( British Educational Training and Technology Show) from an email sent to me by a CCSS Machine group. I was being invited to attend briefing sessions connected to the Conference in London the last weekend of this month (Jan. 2018). Below is a screen shot of the email. The added emphasis is mine.

BETTshops.jpg


If you question BETT’s stance on why it is pushing for digital personalized learning, look below:

BETTUN
Other sponsors and partners include Cisco, Dell, and, Microsoft. Underneath every partner or sponsor is how they are tied to BETT. For example, Microsoft is a ‘worldwide partner’. Because digital and technology pushes across the globe involve the UN/UNESCO, you’ll find STEM and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math; Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and, Math) there, too.

Evidence has also proven that these UN led agenda items were inserted into American education as part of the CCSS Machine’s ‘bet’ in education. The payoff? A STEM people for a STEM workforce who live in a STEM nation with a STEM economy for global good.

BETT is all about bringing together the global education community in the hopes of transforming education. With the ties we see above, is it any wonder DeVos is so hell-bent on trying to convince us digital education on a personal level is the ONLY way to go? It makes sense to me.
UNdatatrack

Closing:

Make no mistake, Warriors, DeVos will keep placing dangerous bets in education supposedly on our children’s behalf. We KNOW she’s totally unqualified to be in such a powerful position. We MUST continue to keep watch and help dispel the damaging misinformation which is coming at us from ALL angles in D.C. We MUST continue to protest against ANY involvement with the United Nations. It’s not enough to pull funding from specific programs and expect all the ties to the UN will go away. The CCSS Machine, along with the UN have been planning total educational upheaval for many, many years.
Folks like DeVos only make it harder to untangle. Those groups the UN is using, like BETT, certainly uphold transforming education from learning to workforce.

US Ed’s Global Shakedown

Anti Fed Ed Warriors,

Recently I’ve shown you several globally overreaching agenda items which are showing up in our US Congress. As you know, I’ve asked “WHY?”. Why are our US taxpayer dollars going to fund programs and set laws which are NOT American made, nor citizen driven? Especially when it comes to education.

yesteryearsnews(Image source)

Warriors, as you can see by this vintage political cartoon, having American citizens pay for D.C.’s ‘extravagance’ is an age old issue. Now, why would I choose to insert ‘extravagance’?

After all, education is NOT a luxury..it’s a privilege. I chose the ‘e’ word to make a point. American citizens are supposed to be the ones who influence Congress to create legislation, not lobbyists, corporations, or, global groups.

Yet, we’ve seen in the War Vs the Core just how easily We, the People, are dismissed. Congress is being extravagant with its power.

Wait Lynne, you said education is a privilege. Isn’t it actually a ‘right’? That depends Warriors. Are you thinking American or globally?

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

In the case of the CCSS Machine’s domain over globally based education, look at HOW controlled America’s education has become. It’s also become even MORE controlled by global forces. Yet, We the People will be expected to pick up the global-to-fed-led bill every time.

The classic thought concerning education in America (as elsewhere) was that by having education treated as a privilege, everyone involved got way more bang for their taxpayer dollar.

Think about it, teachers wanted to teach because they were encouraged, not forcibly controlled. Students were inspired to learn because they knew going to school was a step in the right direction, not a step to some assessment mandated job.

The CCSS Machine has murdered any joy, privilege, or enjoyment associated with education. Both for teachers AND students.

The ‘un-intended’ victims? The families and taxpayers.
Our compliance is not a choice, it, too, is a controlled mandate.
We have no say in the fact we do NOT wish to see our taxpayer dollars fund globally based Congressional bills.


The Latest Global Grab Bag:

From NC, August 2017, this screen shot from the Global Ready Implementation Rubric:

ncglobal17

 How committed to globalism is your State? Where I live (NC), is 100% committed. I’ve shared this with you many times* before here on my blog. The most recent commitments from the SBE (State Board of Education, where all political parties are involved), and the NC DPI (Dept. of Public Instruction). While we assume this only involves public schools of all kinds, this globalization in education reaches into private education, as well as homeschooling. How? Dual enrollment, AP courses, assessments, on-line or hybrid classes, extra curricular activities, and more.

Within Our Shores?

Author’s note: original feature picture is courtesy of ClipGround.com

To My Anti Fed Ed Warriors, how many times have we been able to trace all the modern education reform back to entities NOT within our US shores? Each and every day, as time passes, we see bolder and bolder moves by our leaders (from federal to state levels) become more globally aligned than American-minded.

Oh sure; these leaders swear allegiance to our US Flag every day; they took oaths upon entering offices to uphold the Constitution: to protect American citizens.

If you’ve followed my blog for a long time, you’ve read how incensed I have become over the more-than-visible actions of UN-led motives, agendas, and ideals these VERY same leaders are supporting.

Warriors, WHAT are OUR leaders doing to us? Why are WE not enraged? We must ask ourselves: why are we being passive about this?!

We elected  these leaders (unless appointed) to represent us..not the world! Certainly not the US as filtered by the UN’s mandates.

 

Sitting On The Hill:

Warriors, sitting in Congress as I write (and you read) this, is a bill from OUR leaders in the name of ‘education’. Now, in my mind, I have this question running through my thoughts:

What in the name of ‘education’ is Congress setting our schools up for?!

iceburg

This globally encompassing Congressional bill is S 1171 and is titled “Keeping Girls in School Act”.
Sponsoring this? Sen. Sheehan from NH.
It was introduced back in May 2017 and is in the Committee for Foreign Affairs at the moment.
(*Note: one of the UN-inspired tactics in education is ‘lifelong learning’. So, with a title like this bill, does it literally mean our females will ALWAYS be in some type of school?)

****Let me pause here, Warriors.
As you know, on my blog and from other researcher/writers, we’ve been able to tie the CCSS Machine to the UN, the U.S. State Dept., the Office of Reform and Government Oversight, the U.S. Treasury, the U.S. Dept. of Ed’s International Education Office, and other departments which interact with other nations.

In Feb. 2017, I wrote about the House’s Resolution to adhere and uplift UNESCO’s “International Mother Language” Day.
****

From S 1171’s pages, look below, Warriors:

keepgirls
Warriors, what obvious questions do you have after seeing this? I know what mine are.

S 1171 has SO much overreach, it’s truly egregiously criminal.
1) Creates even more discrimination in education; not lessening it.

2) Creates even more P3 (public private partnerships) activity for economic gain.

3) Uses a portion of the human population to justify all of #1 and 2.

4) Shows the nation that it’s more important to honor global agreements and partnerships than correcting American education problems which address 100% of the  citizens.

5) Ignores the vast amount of research by Americans FOR Americans proving how we are under-serving young men.

6) Is clearly using the UN/UNESCO SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) #5 and any related to #5. (SDG #5 is “Achieve Gender Equality and Empower all women and girls”)

7) If you couldn’t read the three overreaches in the screen shot:
a) Expands the U.S. federal government’s power in education ( a $35 million dollar annual fund).
b) Puts the U.S. State Dept. at the head position for education’s innovation.
c) Relies on UNESCO studies and reports, not American studies and research.

8) Cites the U.S. State Dept’s “Global Strategy to Empower Adolescence Girls”

Q) How do STEM And STEAM connect to S 1171?
A) One of the biggest programs begun, by the Obamas, “Let Girls Learn” is rooted in STEM/STEAM. (see below)
A) The SDG Tool Kit  (education-for-sd-tool-kit-fully-highlighted-1 )
created by a University of TN professor clearly stated that to make the Goals successful, the female population had to be empowered in the name of education and economic gain.

letgirl

Warriors, this isn’t really about ’empowerment’, it’s more like exploitation. (Because after all, if we get girls out of the house and into the workplace, more money is made for everyone.)

*******************************************************
Warriors, there are a few important things S 1171 would achieve (for example: placing female genital mutilation under a ‘barrier status’); however, what is so concerning for all of us should be: that one more time, a ton of BAD legislation surrounds a minority of GOOD legislation.
Why have our leaders so ignored American problems and solutions?! Why have our leaders divorced their hearts and ears when listening to the citizens they represent?!

Closing:

Warriors, let me state for the record that I am not ‘anti-people’. I AM ‘anti big government’.
 Men AND women are both essential to our lives.

I’m also old enough to have lived through the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment) upheaval. I’ve worked in jobs side by side with male peers and seen them earn more. I UNDERSTAND how important some of the issues surrounding girls education are.

But, as a Mom to both sexes, I cannot see how one gender is more worthy (or exploitable) than the other.

It appears Congress isn’t thinking like parents in S 1171.

We have ENOUGH angst in our nation NOW. S 1171 has the potential to add fuel to this angst. How?

When you exalt one gender, the other gender is automatically seen as ‘less than’. Does Congress really want to further this type of treatment to Americans?

Here’s another fact, with all the citizens who are not associating  with the 2 genders, where will those students land with a bill like S 1171?

No government, especially ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave’ should be tipping the scales when it comes to male/female education.

Our government isn’t even supposed to ‘BE’ in education AT ALL!
For argument’s sake, pretend the US Congress DID have a place in education, shouldn’t it be 100% American? Shouldn’t education be for girls AND boys? Wouldn’t THAT be true equality?

US fed statute

Warriors, I truly fail to see where the globalism; the use of P3s (especially with Gates Foundation money), and more discrimination, how Congress thinks S 1171 will help American students be the best they are meant to be.

I do see S 1171 furthering the road to ruin for our nation at the expense of our children.
Warriors, I hope you see this distinction, too.

From our Eastern shores to our Western shores in the US, along with our territories: We MUST stand up and protect our children.

 

Warrior “One Liners”

Warriors Against Fed Ed, there’s been quite a bit of buzz over closing the U.S. Dept. of Education in ‘one’ big swoop (HR 899).

From an activist’s viewpoint, this has really troubled me, but not for the reasons which may immediately cross your mind. From a researcher’s vantage point, seeing the hype proves one thing, history is repeating itself once more in our War Vs. the Core

As a result, I have a great curiosity, as to will we, the Warriors for our Children, LET that history play out yet again, OR, will we take a page from the great battle plans of the past, and truly beat our opponent?

Did you know there’s another plan to gradually close the Dept. down? (HR 1510).
Note: Early next week, I’ll have an in-depth look at HR 1510.


Voltairequote

For the remainder of this article, I’m using one-liners to make the simple points of effective strategy. Join me, will you? After all, we are a team.

As ‘one-liners’, these PROPOSED Solutions SOUND great, don’t they?:

HR 899’s Title, “To Terminate the Department of Education.”
HR 1510’s Title, ” ‘‘States’ Education Reclamation Act of 2017’’

Warriors, how many times have we seen the titles of proposed solutions accomplish exactly the opposite? With or without citizen input, what have the results typically been?

How many MORE times are we going to give Congress the benefit of the doubt when it comes to what’s best for our students?!

I’ll counter BOTH those ‘solutions’ with the one liner from ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act)… 

“Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014”

As in ‘ALL education’ (means what’s learned, what’s taught, and what’s measured/tested) ‘MUST align to WIOA’s standards’, NOT academic standards!

Remember, ESSA’s an ‘on-books-law’.

The only solution to solve ESSA is a totally legal repeal without having to create new legislation.

Warriors, By Congress using WIOA as a ‘one-liner’ in ESSA, WIOA’s woven into ESSA on purpose. It is there to align education with labor!

*************************************************************************
Warriors, it’s STILL federal overreach! It won’t matter if U.S. Ed is closed, some other federal agency (agencies) will take over. That’s been a pre-planned process for quite some time.
*****************************************************************************

By WIOA being woven into ESSA,  that means US ED is woven into the U.S. Dept. of Labor!
There is NO proposed Bill to close US Labor..nor will there be!


US fed statute

Here’s another ‘one liner’ to consider:
The Dept. of Health and Human Services!

Because ‘health’ in EVERY form is woven throughout ESSA, closing the US Ed down, shifts every bit of those programs and services right into the US Dept. of HHS’s lap!
*********************************************************************************

Warriors, in the recent Congressional Appropriations moves the U.S. Dept. of HHS was given the lion’s share of our tax dollars. US Labor was 2nd in line, and US Ed was last in line. In BOTH those Appropriations Bills, the grasp at educational alignment via mental health services was extremely evident. So was the massive amount of data mining.
confounded-face

Again, NO Bill to remove the U.S. Dept. of  HHS exists, nor will it!
***********************************************************************

IS there a one-liner solution which WILL work?

Yes, Warriors! Use the EXISTING legal statutes to TOTALLY Repeal ESSA and at the same time Restore FERPA!
President Trump needs to wipe out the Executive Order which gutted FERPA.

CACR
This one-line solution will do TWO things almost immediately: a) roll back the illegally based ESSA; b) throw a monkey’s wrench in the data mining.


In other words, Warriors, this move will greatly reduced the U.S. Dept. of Education straight away. THEN, we can all move prudently to work towards TRUE local control in education; not see ALL the US Ed’s programs get scattered like a bunch of roaches when you walk into a room and turn the light on.

cannedroaches

By approaching ridding our nation of the US Ed in a responsible manner, we can ensure our children that their education can go back to academics and not be taken over by U.S. Dept. of Labor; we can assure them their education will cease to data mine their private information to be used against them by the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services.

In our rush to do what’s best for our children, we need to step back this weekend and CAREFULLY considering WHAT IS BEST for the children will NOT be accomplished in ‘rip the band-aid off’ kind of way.

By taking a one sentence Bill and attaching a huge ‘to do’ list to it, are we REALLY considering all the ‘un-intended consequences’?

By taking another related bill where US ED is divided up into several pieces, are we honestly being pro-active in our moves?

To be honest, no.

Everything ‘We the People’ are doing to END the federal overreaches in education is REACTIVE at this point. All the laws have been passed to codify the overreaches, all the funds have been earmarked.

Warriors, we MUST really plot out effective battle plans against the CCSS Machine.

twoprong

The first step? It is a big one, either way. However, there are many other steps we need to look at: a) Repealing WIOA and re-writing it to EXCLUDE education at any level; b) Halting the re-writing of HEA (Higher Education Act) right now to ensure it remains free of the WIOA clauses; c) getting P3s out of education; d) getting educators and teachers back to their first love; e) seeing States cut the dependence to the federal government’s pocketbook; and f) cutting ALL ties with the UN (United Nations).

By doing all these steps IN ORDER, we can really make use of the exit from UNESCO. (It is our membership with the UN/UNESCO which helped the CCSS Machine move so far along in reforming education in the first place, Warriors.)

If we DO NOT do things in a proper step way, Warriors, the exit from UNESCO will be as effective as a screen door on a submarine.

Let’s make sure this one-liner is NOT our destiny in this War Vs the Core:

“It’s Too Much, Too Little, Too Late”partnership
