Ed’s Money Pit Effect

Dear Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’ve heard SO many times that we, as a nation, aren’t investing enough in education. It’s used as a wedge to get most citizens activated and involved. Those of us fighting the global-to-federal-to-state-to-local-to-you overreach, know the investment hype is just that..hype.

youre-throwing-money-away

If investing in education were the fix, we would have solved the ‘dumbing down’ of America long ago.

FryingPanFire250_250
Throwing money at education hasn’t worked in years. We might as well jump in from the fire to the frying pan. We’d certainly see faster results!

Since, ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), though, ‘investing’ isn’t simply about money anymore. It’s P3s (public private partnerships), it’s ‘in-kind’ donations and contributions (meaning, if you can’t give cash, give ‘stuff’) from anyone or any group approved by your SEAs or LEAs (State Education Agencies or Local Education Agencies).
The shifts in ESSA’s funding, also are worth noting here. For example, the shift from per-pupil to whole school funds.
That, my fellow Warriors, was to increase the amount of money States received. (*Note: It’s also the way to include all students in labeling them ‘at risk’ or ‘in need of intervention’.)

Before long, it wouldn’t surprise me to see either what I call the “PBS Beg-a-thons” (aka: pledge drives) or out and out auctions right outside the school buildings! Why? Because money solves everything!

freemoney

Now, Warriors, don’t get me wrong, I know running a school costs money. However, when did Congress, the United Nations and all its partners, and our State leaders decide it was either money or technology devices which would be the saving graces to American education?!

HELLO!!! NEITHER money OR technology devices will save America’s education demise! So, why is there more push than ever to ramp up the money as we ramp down the quality?

I can almost hear some citizen read this and ask me, “Why talk about this now? We’re almost in the most festive time of the year, as Americans.. I don’t wanna talk about it, I’ll deal with it next year….” My response? “We need to talk now. Congress passed the FY 2019 Appropriations Bills which mean MORE money and ‘stuff’ will be thrown at education and hope it works. Then, we’ve just had elections, which means the new leaders will be taking office at the first of the year. We MUST be pro-active, not reactive!”

selective-hearing

Warriors, believe me, the CCSS Machine is already talking about next year (and the years after) as far as money and ‘stuff’ to throw at education. Frankly, we need to catch up in the conversation. Quite simply, we need to change the narrative, not accept it!!

Where The Global Shift In Money Is Coming From:

Warriors, we already know the biggest source is the United Nations, the World Bank, IMF, Goldman Sachs, The Gates Foundation, the Middle East, the U.S. federal government,  and several other well documented groups which all belong to the CCSS Machine.  However, there are others driving the ‘money and stuff’ push on American taxpayers. We also know the global education push from groups like P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills) have also been well documented. Let’s look, at some lesser known groups, though.

1) Campaignforeducation.usa.org (part of the Global Education Coalition)

globaledus
(US Programs/Priorities Source)

Warriors
, did you notice the huge amount of money? According to their website, the $39 billion isn’t enough, they want MORE!
Did you notice the attitude is that not only can global/federal government GET the taxpayer funds to pull this off…they can manage co-ordination of its use, too! Are you kidding me?? How well has managing the States turned out?! For the globalists and federal leadership: SUPER! For the States and American citizens? MICROMANAGED to the smallest degree.

A few notes about the Campaign for Global Education-U.S.
a) When you access the embedded link above, look to your right for the ‘quick actions’ of our Congress. To see the Coalition Member Groups, go to the ‘About’ tab and select.
b) There, you’ll see UNICEF, the NEA, AFT, and several other key CCSS Machine member organizations.
c) Embedded in the “Education for All” Act is a link to the “Right To Education Index”. Read the introduction to the information, and you’ll see data collection. The U.S., as a member, data mines and shares your student’s information to reports like this.
d) Of course, the Campaign receives donations..what ‘card carrying’ CCSS Machine member group wouldn’t.

Other Global Overreaches in America:

Each of these will need our money or ‘stuff’ at some point. If it’s not our money or ‘in-kind’ contribution, it’ll be big business, big pharma, big _________ (fill in the blank). Thanks to ESSA, the community mom and pop businesses, the State services will be roped in as well.

2) World Top 20 Project (website) For every person, world-wide ages 3 to 25. According to their Global Education Report 2017, those polled on the best education systems ranked more government funding as the second most important item. What group is behind World Top 20 Project? FIFA (International Federation of Association Football) FIFA’s social responsibility is carried out in education for every child on the planet. Warriors, not only will FIFA invest billions in education, but advocates that governments up the ante!

3) Center for Global Development
stated in 2016 that not only do we need globalized standard driven tests because they’re more fair to those being tested as well as international testing is cheaper. Warriors, do you see the problems with this for Americans? I do.

4) Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA), here’s their excerpt: “AIEA brings together international education leaders into dialogue with each other, their counterparts around the world, organizations that promote international education, and organizations concerned with the shaping and management of international higher education. AIEA gives members opportunities to join forces, share institutional strategies, and provide an effective voice on matters of public policy.”

5) Global School Network (GSN)is part of P21, Partnership for 21st Century Learning

6) NASBE (National Assoc. of State Boards of Education)

To see WV’s Globaloria information, that’s here.

7) Global Partnership in Education’s got 8 charts to plead the case for more global education. Chart #4 is where the plea for ‘we need more money’ can be found.

gpe$

From the GPE, this excerpt: “Education reduces poverty, boosts economic growth and increases income. It increases a person’s chances of having a healthy life, reduces maternal deaths, and combats diseases such as HIV and AIDS. Education can promote gender equality, reduce child marriage, and promote peace. In sum, education is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people and its future.”

8)  State and District Network on International Education in the Schools (this Network is the results of a partnership between the Longview Foundation and the Asia Society). Their stance is that global education is required for graduation. See the rubric here (in a DOC file)

9) The United States Government (USAID) Education Strategy? Expansion of government and more money to invest in what is taught. As found on page 8 of the 98 page Strategy Plan, “Financial resources are critical to effective education systems”. That cost or ‘investment’? In the trillions, Warriors! The sources of all those trillions of dollars? Taxpayers, private corporations, and philanthropists. (Gee, I wonder which of the CCSS Machine billionaires is going ‘first’?)

usaidintl

From The States:

Then, there are global overreaches in every State in America!
For example, look at CT’s global education guidelines for all K-12th programs.
We saw WV, above. However, all 50 States will have some globalism in place and it will only keep expanding. How? Look at where I live, North Carolina.

The State Board of Education decides to embed globalism in education and the Department of Public Instruction carries it out. How?
Not only working with different countries, but tying education to the State level Dept. of Commerce (which will also tie education to the State level Dept. of Labor). NC’s documents also show that as of 2015-16, the use of non government partners to influence school boards was to be put into action.

In fact, one of the documents I found shows how 16 NC Counties and 2 VA Counties were used as pilot districts to help create the Global School Network! (*Note: in the document, you’ll notice the Global School Network was coordinated around 2012 by a group known as VIF, Visiting International Facility. VIF, used to train teachers (known as VIF Global Gateway Program), but shifted to focus on K-12 global education. As of 2017, VIF was re-named Participate. Today, Participate is ‘igniting change and creating impact on a global scale’. How is Participate accomplishing this? Leading edge technology in school districts!

Closing:

Warriors, the investments in education, be they money or in-kind, aren’t worth it. Not the way things are going. Taxation without representation might be theft, but overzealous philanthropists and private corporations CAN be put in their proper places..out of the classrooms! Question is, will we be that bold? Then, there’s the government..we are ITS master, not the other way around. It’s time to put DC on notice for 2019. We must, it’s our citizen’s duty as well as our patriotic responsibility.

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?
******************************
If you’ve not read my latest article (embedded above), you didn’t see how the current DC ‘swampiness’ is STILL in education.

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.

 

Lady Liberty Weeps 2

 

 

 

 

 

Phase One Complete?

Warriors Against the Core, we know the “Core” encompasses not only USA education, but education across the world. The ties between the global powers which are in place and our classrooms have been exposed over and over again.

Yet, the CCSS Machine still finds ways to crank out more alignment to carry out the ‘one-way-to-learn-so-you-can-earn-while-being-a-good-citizen-who’s-tracked-for-the-greater-global-good’.

Lady Liberty Weeps 2

It’s all been a big phase to eliminate education as we knew it and replace it with something utterly foreign and harsh. The phase, however, Warriors, has been accelerated quite a bit.

A Quick Review:

Sept. 4th, 2018: I showed you the real agenda for the ‘defacto’ government educratic moves. These moves are the same ones as the globally led moves: bare minimum academics and heaps of workforce skill preparation.

Sept. 6th, 2018: DeVos signs the G20 Education DeclarationHer trip to Argentina was on our taxpayer dime to agree to the G20 (Group of 20) global education.

Sept. 18th, 2018: The in-depth look behind the new morality assessments ties to global education in big ways. This will ensnare Americans quicker than we are prepared for IF we do not arm ourselves NOW.

Next, in the phase to complete America’s shift in education to workforce prep:
Oct. 3rd, 2018, I showed you the latest initiative of UNICEF:  “Generation Unlimited” .

Also for clarity:
The G20 Declaration for education was about getting the agreeing countries to align to  THEIR plan.  UN/UNESCO framework, agenda and all gels right in with the G20 Declaration on purpose.

ung20
Warriors, this picture was from 2016. The UN’s leader was addressing the G20.


New Developments?

Warriors, since this articles, I’ve been contacted by a great education activist, Paul R.
He’s a blogger, researcher, and we’ve compared notes before. So imagine my surprise when he asked if the same folks behind the G20 agreement were the same as the UNICEF’s “Generation Unlimited”. 

In the October 3rd article I showed you the Youth 2030 was a part of the initiative. Interestingly enough is that the UN has a Youth 2030 Strategy that was launched in late September 2018.

So, going back to Argentina’s summit,  there was a meeting for the Y20 (Youth 20). On Twitter the Y20 is handled as the Youth2030.
If you look at the policies to be taken back to each of the G20 countries and implemented from the Y20 meeting, you’ll find many of the exact points from Generation Unlimited match those positions!

Warriors, going back to the G20 Summit, UNESCO’s website detailed the Y20 Meeting. To see their spin on how great the meeting was and the upcoming implementations of the agenda are, read this.

Going back to the Generation Unlimited article, you’ll see the GPE, (Global Partnership for Education) is supported by our Congress (and our tax dollars). However, from one of the newer items Paul showed me, I found the Rockefeller Foundation supports GPE, too.

(*Note: the Rockefellers, as you know, have long been aiming to restructure the USA. (Their Resilience Cities project ties into the Every Student Succeeds Act, ESSA, and Social emotional learning)  ).

Next Steps For Us:

So, Warriors, it appears the evidence points to the same groups at roughly the same time carrying out well planned phases. Does GU (Generation Unlimited) equal the ‘step one’ of the G20 Education Declaration? It appears that indeed it does! If so, look at the short time span between Declaration and Initiative!

Closing:

Do we wait for what’s next to occur before we demand an END to the American dependence on UN led education? NO!!

If you’ll remember, the State Dept. had announced (2017) that by Dec. 31st, 2018, we’d be totally out of UNESCO. In April of this year, the New York Times asked a question about all the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the US. Here’s an excerpt from their article, “If the United States withdraws from Unesco, it would remain a state party, having signed and ratified the World Heritage Convention.”

Write or call the White House! Let the President know you, as an American, are fed up with the globalization of our education, as well as the indoctrination and overreach which is part and parcel of the alignment. (*Note: not sure what to say? The government in Australia has sent a strong message to the UN  you could use as an idea. Their ‘we’ll take no part of socialism masquerading as environmentalism’ is brilliant.)

Call or write your U.S. House of Representatives and tell them to get HR 193 out of Committee and onto the floor for a vote to PASS it. What’s HR 193? It’s the bill which would repeal  the United Nations Participation Act of 1945 and other specified related laws. Once the House passes it, it would move to the Senate. Hopefully, from there, to the President to become law. Wouldn’t that make a midterm to remember?!

Lastly, get involved with the “Get Us Out of the UN” project. It’s been going on for 50 years, now. It’s part of the John Birch Society. Access all their resources to see how you can join in to save our nation and our education. Sign the Petition by the JBS, if you choose.

Warriors, you’re looking at a brand new initiative by UNICEF for students ages 10 years to 24 years old. I urge you to look at the blue box. Then, contrast with the words in red from NC’s vision for education. See the likenesses?
(*Note: to access the full GU website, go here.)

Then consider the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) language that ALL education must be aligned to post-secondary readiness standards as laid out by WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act). 

Below, is a comparison chart for the UN’s vision for education vs the vision for education in America.
While these visions are old, they mesh very well with the GU’s current vision.

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

Meet Generation Unlimited:

World leaders gathered in New York City in late September 2018 to launch this initiative which fits the Youth 2030 Strategy. If you listen to the wording for the initiative (embedded above) you’ll hear how all this change is meant to be risky and disruptive. GU (Generation Unlimited) will have lots of  STEM and include rural schools, mental health, P3s (public private partnerships), data mining, and more. SEE it here.

Look below at one partner, Unilever, and how the GU was announced in the business world:

unilevergu

Warriors, did you notice the age range for the GU (Generation Unlimited)? Ten years old and up to 24 years of age.  Why this age group? See the excerpt below,

“Without urgent investment in education and skills training, the rapidly growing global population of adolescents and young people – which will reach 2 billion by 2030 – will continue to be unprepared and unskilled for the future workforce. And with more than 200 million young people of lower- and upper-secondary school age currently missing out on school, instead of contributing to equitable progress, young people – especially the most disadvantaged – could face futures of compounding deprivation and discrimination.”
(*Note: full press release)

In other words, barely educate them for academics, train them to work to contribute to the economy and be their savior.

modern-education_o_1290213
GU leaders include Unilever, the Global Partnership for Education*, the World Bank, the Global Business Coalition for Education, MasterCard, IKEA Foundation, the Education Commission, OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), and a host of UN entities.
(*Note: The GEP, Global Partnership for Education, is supported by the U.S. Congress via H Res. 466 and S Res. 286.)

 

So, What’s the 2030 Youth Strategy? Look below:

unyouthstrat
To access the entire Strategy document, visit here.

What are some for ‘real time’ plans for the Strategy? Cross cutting, system wide actions and interventions which support the United Nations. According to the document, these plans will hit 5 target areas with 5 effective tools.

1) Engagement, Participation and Advocacy (so we can all live in a peacefully sustainable and just world)
Watch for total UN leadership in all member states (US is still one of these).

2) Informed and Healthy Foundations (quality education and healthcare for all)
Watch for CBE (Competency Based Education) for life, mental health and sexual diversity.

3) Economic Empowerment through Decent Work (everyone has a good productive job)
Watch for member states shifting to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) aka ‘Green’ jobs. 

4) Youth and Human Rights (supports their civic and political interactions)
Watch for UN enforced youth participation in voting, global citizenship, and, human rights education/activism.

5) Peace and Resilience Building (train for humanitarianism and inter-religious participation)
Watch for safe spaces, and increased global, national, state, local partnerships to boost non violence.

The five tools: UN leadership; innovation (supposedly with knowledge); investments via partnerships; accountability (means data tracking); and, common resources.

As a member state of the United Nations, America must ‘own’ their portion of carrying out the Strategy via governance (legislation) and coordination (policy).

“The ownership of the UN Youth Strategy is equally shared by all members of the UN system at the global, regional and national levels. The Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth will be the public face of the UN Youth Strategy and will lead global advocacy efforts and its High-Level Steering Committee in support of its successful implementation. 
COORDINATION AND GOVERNANCE:
The governance of the UN Youth Strategy will be rooted in existing global, regional and national mechanisms and reinforced by a High-Level Steering Committee.”

The High-Level Steering Committee will work with the UN’s SDG Group (Sustainable Development Goals) as well as Interagency Network on Youth Development (IANYD)  members. IANYDs are at a global level, and a regional level. From there member states are broken up in Country Teams.

These Country Teams have 165 UN program participating countries, from around the world, grouped into 131 teams. These teams are to make sure all countries comply with the UN’s programs and initiatives.

In all there are 193 member states in the UN. Not all member states are Country Teams, at least not now.

From what I’ve been able to glean about the UN, any time a ‘high-level’ status is attached, it’s a big deal which will get lots of attention. For example, there’s a High-level Digital  Committee (which will no doubt be working with the ‘innovation’ portion of the Youth Initiative. Melinda Gates (Gates Foundation) is the co-chair for the Digital Committee.

Why would we, as Americans need to know some of this? Look at the image below:

4kusa

Any of the United Nations suggestions (recommendations) is decided upon by the Security Council. As you can see the United States is a member. Then, decisions are implemented via the specialized groups and ‘organs’.

So, the Generation Unlimited, is part of this system. In July 2018, in New York, the first news about GU was announced. Watch a clip here. The entire 2 hour kick-off can be seen here. This will include the youth speaking out in favor of this. Be sure to note the cheering they are trying to pump up with “2030”.

Closing:

Warriors, let’s go back to the NC vision statement for education. As I pointed out before, it’s very similar to that of the UNICEF’s new program.

While I could not find any specific USA Generation Unlimited (GU) activity in the planning stages, this is something we need to look out for. It’s coming.

Look at your State’s education vision, especially since ESSA been made law. “Global” will be inserted in some way, maybe not by the exact word, but the idea of globalization.

The UN’s goal is not for Americans to be America-minded.

ccdivafb


Warriors, one last observation. Did you notice how  Generation Unlimited allows for global programs from groups associated with UNICEF?

Consider then, the U.S. Secretary of Education’s signature on the G20 Education Declaration for global education. While the Declaration IS the G20’s, the agenda is backed by the UN. As such, UNICEF is factored in.

.
Question, petition, protest. Our leaders are NOT leading us out of the UN, but straight into it!

So, our choice is, do we let them lead us OR do we take our country back? These 10-24 year olds will be lost to us as true Americans if we do not act quickly.

The Global Game

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we well know the ‘fed ed’ wouldn’t exist as it does right now, if it weren’t for the global education agenda. Just last week, while writing for the Patriot Institute, I came across the World Education, Inc. website.

worlded

Warriors, the list of groups funding this corporation is a massive one. So many of the CCSS Machine members. We’ll look closer at the World Education, Inc. in a bit. First, let’s use a game show perspective.

It’s not enough that many of these members have ganged up on America, no, it’s like the CCSS Machine is playing us for all it can. Like a sick and twisted game show. Instead of American education being treated like a winner with lots of wonderful prizes, education has been reduced to a wheel of disaster.

Why would I use a wheel? Look below:

essawheel

Warriors, this type of wheel includes everyone involved in education, not just students.
Below, is one wheel for teachers only:

fetters

Here’s another depiction of the disasters in education, thanks to ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). As you can see, no education choice will be a winner in escaping the overreaches.

USAESSACogs

Do you see Warriors? A wheel represents no beginning and no end. It goes around and around.

Think about some of the other images you’ve seen connecting the CCSS Machine to education. Chunks, clusters, pipelines, and, straight arrows.

World Education, Inc.:

Warriors, in the first screen shot, you may notice the ‘since 1951’ phrase. From their website, this excerpt, “Founded in 1951 to meet the needs of the educationally disadvantaged, World Education has worked in over 50 countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, as well as in the United States. Working in concert with private, public, and nongovernmental organizations, World Education initiatives support effective local management and promote partnerships between local organizations.”

Here’s a YouTube video about the corporation. Below is a screen shot from the 2016 Annual Report:

What else is in the Annual Report? Teacher Professional Development in the US; funding from CCSS Machine members (The U.S. Dept. of Ed, The U.S. Dept. of Labor, UNICEF, the UN Foundation, and the AIR, American Institutes for Research); and the Board members with their organization’s name. CCSS Machine members Harvard University and MIT are among those represented.

From the World Education, Inc.’s archives, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s ‘contributions’:

Currently, there are 5 World Education initiatives in the U.S.

Supporting these in the U.S. are 39 College and Universities and/or their Systems, 18 Corporations (including the GED Testing Service from Pearson), 12 Foundations (see below), 37 U.S. Government agencies (including the U.S. Dept. of Ed’s CTE, Career Tech Education, Office), 82 Non-profit groups (includes quite a few well known CCSS Machine member groups), and, 4 Union and/or Workforce Development Boards.

Warriors, in a week or so, the World Education, Inc. is having a Conference for workforce based education. One of the key note speakers? A 2009 Obama nominee for the U.S. Dept. of Education as the Under Secretary. She now leads the College Promise Program. Dr. Martha Kanter. Her bio can be found here. When I first wrote about the College Promise Campaign, the same logo you see below was used in a “Heads Up” Project. The overall goal for the College Promise: free community college for all.

The World Education, Inc. has a monthly newsletter called the “Change Agent”. The current issue is all about Career Pathways. I’ve written several articles about the Career Pathwaysworldedchangeagent

The World Education, Inc. is trying so hard to sell its work as ‘expert’. When you take into consideration all the ties to the CCSS Machine, it’s not expertise they have, it’s alignment!

Closing:

Warriors, please know that when I share things like this, I am not blaming those involved in education who are fighting by our sides. I AM blaming the CCSS Machine for its continued game of ruining America’s education system. I AM speaking up and highlighting what the CCSS Machine is doing so we can be as informed as possible.
We cannot fight a war if we do not know all the opponents.

I’d personally like to see education become a winning ticket for everyone! Personally, I’d love to see the CCSS Machine destroyed.

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!

Know Thy Worth?

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, we’re quickly approaching a new school year (2017-18). It’ll be another year of contention for those who are dead-set against the CCSS Machine

Over the summer, many of us have continued to chip away at the facade of how ‘local’ ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) is and the true identity of the global, UN (United Nations) grasp over our federal government’s adherence to the modern education reform.

Would You Know What the Global CCSS Machine Values Are?

Warriors, did you know that the UN has ROI (Return on Investment) formulas for education? These formulas, of course will include assessements (tests), teaching, and other factors. However, it’s not the student who will come out the winner, but the businesses AND economy which will reign supreme in education. Why? Workforce based, skilled citizens. If the UN has such, we can ‘bet the bank’ the USA does, too.

Needed Background Information:

For example, back in 2014, I wrote an article about a local meeting which laid out the intersecting of the working world, politicians, and education. Oh, and, yes, the business world was represented by the State level Chamber of Commerce. Look below for a sample of what I shared then.

parentproblemTo see and read the rest of the article, go here. If you’ve not seen how the P3s (public private partnerships) influence your local education system, visit here.

Warriors, we must remember, P3s are increased in power, thanks to ESSA. Globally speaking, their power is enormously strong, as well. The SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) provide the way for this across the globe.

Here, in America, a series of federally passed laws provide the way. Chief among them are: ESSA, WIOA, HEA, the STEM Act, and many more. If you missed how the P3s are running higher education as a ‘return on investment’ for the economy, check out my 2015 article where you’ll see your students on a wheel.

Also, Warriors, keep in mind, the big corporations are not the only investors in ‘education’. The SBA (Small Business Administration) is knee-deep in the alignment/investing ploy, too. These will be the more ‘local’ overreaches you see today.

Warriors, we know of plenty of American career tracking, but what about the international career tracking and/or skill based tests? Are there any? Of course!
Back in March 2017, I shared with you the ties between American and the PIAAC (Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies). This test measures our adults (and thus, teachers, education leaders) and their ‘value’ to the economy.

Your Global Worth?

So, how does all this tie to the UN’s SDGs?! Watch the short video below. It features a school leader (early 2017) explain ‘rigor’ in the global scheme of things. While I listened to this man, I heard so many words with very little meaning. (A classic tool of the CCSS Machine) This school is an American school (Ranney School in NJ. It’s an  independent school which is a UN partner school. Ranney School also is con-joined with Monmouth University as another UN partner school.

Warriors, did you catch the ‘innovation’ plugs? Did you hear the ‘what’s taught’? The Tool Kit for teaching the SDGs is full of how to teach to manipulate values, beliefs, and attitudes. (*Note, when you access the article, you can also get to the entire 142 page Tool Kit. Simply click on the phrase ‘tool kit’ in the section beginning with “From 2002..”)

basic
How did I find out about the NJ schools and their UN partnerships? Their project is being tracked in real time by the UN itself! If you’d like to see the entire results, go here.
Be sure to look for the ‘measured outcomes’ of the project.

If you’d like to see more about this from Ranney’s media, I urge you to access it here.
If you’d like to see and learn more about the Global Citizen Signature Program which is also a part of the Ranney School, click here. Look below for a screen shot:

GCsignatureIs the Ranney School exclusive in the US as a UN partner? Hardly. It’s simply an example for this article. According to the UN’s SDG Initiative Tracking website, there are 524 other global education partnerships in progress right now. If you’d like to see them, find them here. However, remember, Warriors, education is the preferred ‘change agent’ so the alignment in education will be in ALL 17 goals for SD (Sustainable Development), not simply one.

A Big Clue:

As far as anyone’s worth in the current education takeover/reform? It’s not what you know, it’s how you work. Listen to the job forecast in the video below:

Warriors, you can access the article which is to accompany this video. You’ll want to make note of their mention of the U.S. Dept. of Labor (and others). Remember, EVERY Cabinet level agency is in on the CCSS Machine’s workforce shift. Why? As an active SDG Resolution signing country, we must shift education. Look below at the website I found on the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s website:

laborooh
Find the Handbook here.

How the OCED* (Organization for Cooperation in Economic Development) rates ‘returns on investment’ in education. This 2009 Report looks at student outcomes and the cost of educating people. (*Note: OCED is a partner via the Global Compact of the UN.)

This un-dated World Bank “education return on investment” shows how education and growth for economics should be a hand-in-hand process.

UNICEF (a part of the UN), in their 2015 Report, stress a hefty return on investment via education of up to 30%.

How the USA rates ‘returns on investment’ in education can be found on the website “U.S. Global Leadership Coalition”.
The member organizations and corporations for the US GLC include some of the biggest CCSS Machine groups. Find them here.

What CCSS Machine member groups give money to the U.S. GLC? Look below for a few of them:

Closing:

Back in 2016, MarketWatch’s website suggested we ‘moneyball’ education. Maybe they read ESSA better than those who voted on it. Moneyballing is exactly what will be happening more and more in American classrooms of all ages. We can also expect those bankrolling education will have many strings in the way education is conducted. Expect more of a business, not a labor of love, Warriors.

Do the better ‘thing’, the ‘smarter than the global-UN/US thing’: Don’t send your students back to school! Hug them instead, talk with them about their TRUE value and worth. It is beyond ANY amount of money!

Tech Thursday: Global Day for Education

According to the Global Education Conference Network, September 17th is a very special day.
According to the Global Education Conference Network, September 17th is a very special day.

In today’s “Tech Thursday” article, we’ll find out how the Global Collaboration Day for Education is laced with Common Core, Workforce aligned education.

A Bit of History, First:

Before we get to the latest information, I wanted to provide you with a bit of history on the Global Education Conference Network. I first wrote about them in June of this year. In that particular article, I shared with you how evidence to the ‘state led’ argument was blown out of the water. I was able to connect Harvard University and others to the GECN. See: https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2015/06/05/fom-2015s-ccss-whoppers-so-far/

If you’d like a bit more of an idea about the background of the GECN, the annual conference is co-chaired by Lucy Gray and Steve Hardagon. The Network itself (website:
http://www.globaleducationconference.com/) is acollaborative, inclusive, world-wide community initiative involving students, educators, and organizations at all levels. Our activities are designed to significantly increase opportunities for connecting classrooms while supporting cultural awareness and recognition of diversity and educational access for all.” 

Be sure to check out the Advisory Board as well. You may be surprised at who the participants are.:
http://www.globaleducationconference.com/page/advisory

Now that you have a bit of history, here’s a brief look at what’s ahead, globally education wise. On September 25th, 2015, the “World’s Largest Lesson” is going to be taking place. 
A Global Leadership Summit
is being planned for sometime in the Spring of 2016, while a Global Education Day will be held in June 2016 at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).  (more about all these in a bit)

 
Declarations in Global Education:

From the co-leader, Steve Hardagon, a declaration he wrote and presented in 2013 during the GEN Conference. this excerpt on the value of global education:

“Because we are citizens of our individual nations and also part of a larger human family;
Because it is important to learn about other cultures and to understand the similarities that unite us and the differences that define us;
Because global understanding, empathy, and compassion depend and are built on communication, shared experiences, and relationships;
Because we increasingly live in a “global village”;
Because we increasingly work in geographically and culturally interconnected ways;
Because we are interconnected physically and our ecological and resource-use decisions impact others;
Because we share a world which appears to be increasingly fragile;
Because complex worldwide problems need collaborative, cooperative, and intelligent solutions….”

To read the entire Declaration, visit:
http://www.stevehargadon.com/2013/11/a-declaration-of-value-of-global.html

So who IS the man? How is he qualified as an educator? Is he tied to the CCSS Machine?
Answers can be found on his website as to his personal history and educational experience.
As far as being tied to the CCSS Machine? ABSOLUTELY! How, you ask?
Blackboard, Microsoft, the U.S. Dept. of Education, the U.S. State Dept., CoSN (Consortium for School Networking; see their corporate list of members:
http://cosn.org/about/membership/membership-directory ), PBS, and host of others, too. However, it’s his work with the KnowledgeWorks that is the most revealing. If you’ve followed my blog long or listened to some of my audio appearances, you are familiar with how KnowledgeWorks is tied to the CCSSO (Council of Chief State School Officers) and how much of their work is devoted to 100% aligned communities. (See my published articles):

If you see nothing else from the number of articles above, click on them long enough to see the ‘tags’ between the titles and the body of the article. What do you see?  You should see several repeating themes and  names of certain organizations. My point in including each of them is because KnowledgeWorks has an all-encompassing agenda. The foundation has been laid. Check it out.

As far as the ‘other’ declarations I was referring to in the subtitle above? The UN’s educational declarations!! See the UN’s Declaration of Human Rights , Article 26 (http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/), the UNESCO’s “Education for All” statement as found on their UN-related website:
http://www.unesco.org/new/en/education/themes/leading-the-international-agenda/education-for-all/ and the UNESCO’s Declaration of how it carries out the UN’s Declaration. (see: http://www.unesco.org/new/en/social-and-human-sciences/themes/human-rights-based-approach/60th-anniversary-of-udhr/unesco-and-the-declaration/)

ISTE, International Society for Technology in Education):

The website: http://www.iste.org/
One of the main mission sponsors? Microsoft! (scroll down the main page of the website to see the logo)

What’s a bit unusual is the ISTE has several sets of standards, depending on your role in education..and YES, they cater to the CCSS (Common Core State Standards)! See: http://www.iste.org/standards/iste-standards  (if you’d like to the CCSS specific standards, see: http://www.iste.org/standards/standards-in-action/common-core;  be sure to look into the Project ReimaginED)

That “World’s Largest Lesson”:

As part of the GECN’s “EverNotes” (see: https://www.evernote.com/pub/lucygray/globalresources#st=p&n=d000f90f-a46d-4fac-9058-af75e0d1ce9c), the “World’s Largest Lesson” is actually a joint project of UNICEF and TES (UNICEF is an arm of the UN, United Nations, TES has  a global impact with an American group’s help in its founding. Which group? Oh, I’m so glad you asked! The AFT (American Federation of Teachers!!) Need to see it to believe it? (see: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/us/partners) Here’s an excerpt from the TES Global ‘about us’: TES Global is a fast growing and digital education business committed to supporting teaching and learning. Our mission is to help improve performance and standards in education by both supporting the world’s teachers with a portfolio of tailored digital services and providing the world’s most respected higher education data and analysis..” For the portion of TES that’s not global, “We’re proud to be part of TES Global, a fast-growing digital education company that’s been supporting educators worldwide for over 100 years. ” To see more about TES and TES Global: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/us/about

Note the declarative statement for a date that's not even here yet.
Note the declarative statement for a date that’s not even here yet!

 

 

 

 

 

Wait a minute..isn’t the UN in New York right now holding its General Assembly?! YES!
The schedule: http://www.un.org/en/ga/info/meetings/69schedule.shtml
Now, according to that schedule the votes are to be taken over 3 days, one of which is the same date the “World’s Largest Lesson” is to be carried out!!

Related to all this are the two resolutions which will impact American education (and involve the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals, as well as include the  SDGs, Sustainable Development Goals):
a) http://www.un.org/en/ga/search/view_doc.asp?symbol=A%2Fres%2F69%2F244
b) http://www.un.org/en/ga/search/view_doc.asp?symbol=A%2Fres%2F65%2F1

The MDGs impact education, see this excerpt: “By packaging these priorities into an easily understandable set of eight goals, and by establishing measurable and timebound objectives, the MDGs help to promote global awareness, political accountability, improved metrics, social feedback, and public pressures. As described by Bill Gates, the MDGs have become a type of global report card for the fight against poverty for the 15 years from 2000 to 2015. As with most report cards, they generate incentives to improve performance, even if not quite enough incentives for both rich and poor countries to produce a global class of straight-A students.

The SDGs by contrast impact the physical world and are ” an important idea, and could help finally to move the world to a sustainable trajectory.”  The document tying the MDGs and the SDGs together can be found: MGDstoSDGs

As far as the “World’s Largest Lesson”, be sure to view the “Other Resources” page where you can see each of UN’s agenda points in a kid friendly way. (https://globaldimension.org.uk/worldslargestlesson/)

Closing: 

I hope you share this very important article with as many folks as you can who still think CCSS is “state led”, or “American only”.  I hope you help me to continue to expose where every scrap of CCSS Machine agenda, global ties, and any other connected pieces therein are!
