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!!

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’.

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.
ICYMI the U.S. State Dept. a complete
list of all the UN agencies we are tied to.
**********************************************

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.

 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.

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.

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!**

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.

Sic’ ‘Em Saturday: “Springboarding” into the CCSS/AP Pool

"Srpingboard" is a product line by "College Board" said to prepare students for Advance Placement classes. Guess, what, Common Core aligned!
“Srpingboard” is a product line by “College Board” said to prepare students for Advance Placement classes. Guess, what, Common Core aligned!

Have you heard of “Springboard”?

According to the ‘College Board’s’ website, the product line is a foundation. The description also goes on to tell you how great it, how it’s been proven, and so on. (http://professionals.collegeboard.com/k-12/prepare/springboard) What’s interesting is that to find out about Springboard, you have to go the site’s ‘K-12 Services’. Oh, gee, thanks College Board, for considering willfully aligning our students to CCSS as a service! Next thing you know, you’ll be telling us there are no sharp rocks in the picture above, as a service!

What the product line does:

Targets 6th-12th graders with customized content full of rigor, performance based assessments and all professional developed. Sounds great, right?  Here’s a link address for a video of one of the schools used as a testing site. There are a total of 22 schools in a select number of states. http://media.collegeboard.com/digitalServices/video_audio/springboard/qcsd-qchs-video.mp4

You jumping in? We did! The ‘water’s fine’!

So far, 8 states have adopted Springboard:  CA, GA, TN, FL, NM, UT, OR, and TX. From what I can gather, member states get free workshops, especially during the first year of a mutli-year implementation process. I picked a state to see just what else is in store for them, here’s Georgia’s Teacher workshop: “introduces the key components of the SpringBoard framework, emphasizing rigorous instruction, alignment to the Common Core, formative and summative assessments, and other challenges facing Georgia educators. Teachers learn how to use SpringBoard’s digital and print components to differentiate instruction, ensuring all students are engaged in education that leads to college and career readiness.” For the school districts: “SpringBoard coaches collaborate with district leaders in partnerships that grow stronger every year. They work together to design and implement a program of professional development that meets the needs of each school and evolves as those needs change.” This is just the first year, the second year is building expertise and covers even more implementation of the standards. The third year is for capacity building, after all, everybody’s gotta jump in at some point.

Learning Walks:
Another partnership Springboard offers the states, is called “Learning Walks“. If you’ve not heard of these they are quite something. While the state I live in hasn’t adopted Springboard, they DO use it in some of the schools. However, the state does use Learning Walks. I’m including the pdf file from one of the public schools: Learning_Walks_Overview

“Using the Learning Walk system (handhelds, laptops, or paper forms), “walkers” collect specific data that provides a series of snapshots of the teaching and learning process. Learning Walks are brief, often lasting no more than four minutes. The focus of a Learning Walk is on student work and teacher responses in the context of teaching and learning. Over time, the observer collects data on five specific components supported by research related to student learning. This information provides the walker with the opportunity to pose questions based on trend data to engage the teacher, PLC team, or entire faculty in thinking about beliefs, goals, practices, and instructional decision making. Promoting reflective practice will result in several benefits for all educators: • building trust in the reflective practice process itself; • inspiring teacher-driven research through the self-reflection focus; • informing dialogue about teaching and learning between the walker and teacher; • expanding capacity for analyzing thoughts, actions, beliefs, and emotions; • enhancing dialogue about teaching and learning within a professional learning community; • fostering self-monitoring of professional growth; and, • creating a school-wide climate of inquiry and research. In the formative performance appraisal process, observers use the Learning Walk model to collect observation data as a basis for posing periodic reflective questions as well as for sharing trend data periodically.” The five focus areas? Curriculum, lessons, students, work, and the quality framework. You’ll be interested to know that the opportunity for EVEN more data collection is available. The goal behind this particular county’s schools?  “All ________ County Public Schools students will graduate having actively mastered the lifelong-learning skills they need to succeed as 21st century learners, workers and citizens.” Of the ‘lifelong competencies, not one was based on specific subjects. they do contain a long, lofty list of character attributes. Collect and organizing data, think critically, be ethical, be healthy, communicate clearly, be civic minded among others.

How ‘Springboard’ is aligned to CCSS:

You will need to enlarge the picture, but it’s worth a 1,000 words.

Currently, English and Math are the two "Springboard" subjects.
Currently, English and Math are the two “Springboard” subjects.

You’ll want to read some of the texts, books, novels used in the program, among them, Fahrenheit 451, Pygmalion and others you will find interesting. Also included is a Socratic seminar (this should be interesting as well, considering only a few days ago I wrote and shared with you the before/after treatment of Socrates/Plato) Here’s the link to see the rest of what’s in store for your students.

http://media.collegeboard.com/digitalServices/pdf/springboard/springboard-publishers-criteria-english-language-arts-146-583.pdf

I can tell you the Springboard Student textbook I have (part of my CCSS evidence collection), is directed to “All About Me”, the changes I’m facing, the changes in my perception, my world, measuring all those changes. If I were you, I’d want to sit in on a class or two with this subject matter.

What you can do:

1) If offered a choice for your student to have another English/Math class, take the non Springboard one. IF there’s no other choice, test the waters..ask to see the teacher’s guide, look at your student’s book. The website for Springboard has samples, so be sure to access those, print them out and take to your school board. Advance Placement courses are all being run by College Board, which means they are under David Coleman’s direction! You may know how the AP U.S. History has been rewritten, there are other courses that will also be rewritten in similar fashion.

2) Inform other families who have students using Springboard! Share this post, resources. Spread the word. Be willing to accompany those conducting “Learning Walks”. Find out how far the data sharing goes. Inform those in charge you will not allow your student to participate. Remember, exercising your rights as an informed parent is making a statement. It is NOT asking permission. You do not need the school’s permission to do what’s best for your student/child.

3) Be a step ahead of your students. Since you may be able to get the reading list (it can’t hurt to ask the teacher), get the book from the library, borrow it from a neighbor, buy it in a store, etc. Use family time to discuss what the actual vernacular is and contrast to the aligned assignment. If you would like other suggestions for how to counter English assignments with non CC aligned activities, leave me a comment with what you are looking for. I can help!

4) Participate, if you can, in the upcoming “College Board” Forum. They’ll be having a grand time discussing more alignments, more rigor, how the SAT alignment is progressing and more! The Forum is in CA, and is to be held 10/27-29, 2014. (details: http://forum.collegeboard.org/) Can’t make it to CA? There’s a Twitter handle already set up, you can follow it, #CBForum14 If you are interested, be sure to look at the extensive list of colleges who will be participating in the College Fair (a portion of the Forum). I spied several public AND private colleges. Hmmm..makes you want to see if all of them are CCSS aligned as well.

5) Draw up a petition to present to your school board that expresses the parents/students wishes to NOT use Springboard, College Board or AP classes! Write your legislators urging them to STOP their paid support of College Board CCSS aligned products. Help stop the misconception so prevalent..that all with CCSS aligned materials is a calm pool of delight. Stir up the water, folks!
