In my last article, Warriors, you got quite a bit of information on STEM, STEAM, and how it’s taking over education.
The “T” stands for ‘technology’. We know the CCSS Machine’s grasp on education cannot survive without technology. We also know the most common form of technology is the computer. Where there’s a computer, there’s data to harvest, transfer, and sell.
In the past, I’ve shared with you the International Data Mining Conferences. If you missed this article of mine from 2016, I urge you to go back and read it. Your freedom of speech in 2017 is connected. From earlier this year (2017), I showed you how the international data miners use those student profiles. Again, massively important to connect back to ESSA.
Coming Soon To New Orleans:
“The IEEE International Conference on Data Mining series (ICDM) has established itself as the world’s premier research conference in data mining.” This excerpt is the first sentence you read on the 2017 Conference page. However, the vibrant photos of New Orleans may distract you. What does “IEEE” stand for? “The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.” https://youtu.be/wJyQwLfPtZ4
So what will the 2017 ICDM bring? Below is a screen shot of the full day workshops. I added short descriptions of each workshop. (*Note: to see the IEEE Educational Partners List, go here. Several schools/businesses from across the world will be presenting work at the 2017 Conference.)
Here are the half day ICDM topics:
The 2017 Conference’s Keynote speakers are from Harvard (a huge CCSS Machine member school), a Berkeley University AMPLab co-creator, SUNY, NSF, and the WHO. (*Note: look under the “Program” tab for the Keynote Speakers. You can also find the accepted papers from the workshops there.)
Related: The IEEE also is key to the Smart Cities (part of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals). Smart Cities also bring us community alignment. ESSA has community alignment, too.
While my town isn’t among the IEEE’s Core Smart Cities, it is among the smaller communities being aligned right under our noses. Kansas City, MO is an IEEE Core Smart City. The U.S. Dept. of Transportation also has a list of Smart Cities. As of this year, there are 7 major cities (Kansas City, MO is among them). From one of the UN’s own Power Point presentation’s:
To access the other UN“Smart Cities” resources, go here. If you’d like to see the UN Web TV’svideo on New York City’s being transformed to a “Smart City” to align to the UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), click on the highlighted word ‘video’.
In August of this year, IEEE embraced the UN’s SDGs during the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS). (*Note: IEEE’s archived documents contain a pdf version of the possible UN approved official language called “UN-Speak”.)
WSIS is also aligned to the UN’s SDGs. When you visit the website, look to the right of the WSIS logo and you’ll see the SDG circle logo. Below is a screen shot of the WSIS actions and how they mesh with the SDGs:
To see the entire Matrix document, find it here. Here’s a ‘flyer’ version of the Matrix.
Warriors, I hope you see how much we need to continue to fight the CCSS Machine when it comes to data mining. It won’t be going away anytime soon. If you’ve not heard of the national grassroots campaign to “Repeal ESSA and Restore FERPA”, I urge you to visit the website. As long as FERPA stands as it is RIGHT now, the data mining of our students will not only continue, it will increase (as evidence shows above). As long as ESSA stands, the alignment of education to a UN-inspired workforce base continues (and increases as well). What’s happening is Big. Fighting it? It’s not Easy.
Warriors Against the Core, Anti CCSS Warriors, and Anti Fed Ed Warriors: School’s back in session, or almost ready. Are we?
Thanks to the CCSS Machine’s grasp on the classrooms and every outlet connected to them, (ie: public libraries, museums, etc.) Several States have begun pushing their ‘academic’ calendars up so much, there’s hardly any summer vacaction at all for the teachers, leaders, or students. Think of it as “Live From the US: Conformity!”
Why? You can look to ESSA’s (Every Student Succeeds Act) codifying the CCSSI’s (Common Core State Standards Initiative) ‘lifelong learning’ phrase.
You see, to have ‘lifelong learning’, you have to produce an atmosphere of constant information being fed into the minds of those ‘learning’.
As far as the CCSS Machine is concerned, once your student (or, even you as a student) is hooked into the ‘lifelong’ part of education, they will not be free of it. That’s why ESSA was so heavy on the digital and technology portions of the mandates.
Remember, Warriors, I shared with you over 1 year ago how the digital overloads in ESSA were setting us up for 365 days of 24/7 computer access. If you missed it, find it here.
Of course, since ESSA’s passage into law, you’ve seen many of the CCSS Machine member organizations bend over backward to bring you every conceivable digital and technology based known to humans. This applies to our States, as well.
The accepted ‘sales pitch’? All this technology will lead to jobs..jobs for the 21st Century. No, the ugly reality is it isn’t about giving Johnny and Suzy a leg up, it’s about controlling Johnny and Suzy’s lives.
Because ‘lifelong learning’ is now a de facto part of education, we’ll continue to see a constant flow of data. Accountants would refer to it as FIFO, ‘first in, first out’. Data makes money for everyone in the CCSS Machine..as well as everyone connected to that Machine, EXCEPT those being educated/indoctrinated.
Look below for a photo by Will Lion depicting the data overflow:
According to the article this photo was featured in, our brains take in as much information in a single day, as one of our 15th Century counterparts would take in throughout an entire year. This article also points out that when it comes to too much computer time, it’s still a people problem, not a machine’s.
However, Warriors, consider this in the context of school days. So much pressure is exerted to learn more, learn quickly, and then take a test. This doesn’t even cover the constant assessment algorithms embedded in every computer activity used in education. This applies to teachers and students.
Again, ESSA’s assessment mandates will keep the alignment to these constant measures up. Most, without parental consent or knowledge.Think of this as “Live From the US: Mental Abuse!”
**What if you have an older student, or, are the adult student? Because ESSA’s education standards are aligned to the ‘post-secondary readiness’ standards of WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act), you’re hooked in as well!
Education is being revamped SO much so, it hardly resembles anything worthy of participating in! Our teachers are being conformed to a strict format, our students are being plugged in younger and younger each year..and for longer periods of time. Think of this as “Live From the US: Intentional Frustration!”
“Live From The US, The UN!”: It’s all part of the slick propaganda to ‘rethink’ how we learn or educate others. It’s also a big step to global conformity. (*Note: the global conformity is even being unleashed on private education and home education. In this previously published article, I showed you how UN (United Nations) ideology is ushered in via clubs. Toward the close of this article, you can see the same ideology ties to STEM.)
One of the biggest “American” education propaganda pieces which fits nicely into the global conformity is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). STEM is embedded in ESSA and WIOA (don’t forget the HEA, Higher Education Act) in several ways. Mainly: Career Tech Education, Career Clusters, Career Paths (or Pathways). STEM also will unite the ‘lifelong learning’ to jobs (ie: workforce). If you doubt the connections between STEM, the UN, and the workforce, I urge you to read and consider this.
Before we move on, be sure to read about the Global STEM Alliance (started right here in the USA) as part of First Global (Dean Kamen).
The connection to the CCSS Machine is quite simple: Dean Kamen (think Segway inventor turned STEM guru) has received funding from Coca-Cola, The Gates Foundation, Toyota, and Johnson/Johnson for some of his work in health care equipment. For the First Global? The main funder:Toyota, a well-known CCSS Machine global member organization. Toyota’s also big on STEM. (Source) If you’d like to see how the World Bank (also tied to the global education reform) is working with Kamen’s First Global, visit the blog.
“Live From The US: New High School?”:
I recently saw this (below) in a well known magazine which has zero to do with education.
The full page ad shared a little about how over the past 100 years, our education system has remained the same and how it’s time to ‘rethink’ it, especially for high school.
I first wrote about XQ back in 2015. Then, I recently re-visited the CCSS Machine member organization. The earliest article (Sept. 2015) exposed “Project XQ’s” part in “Redesigned High Schools”. Also involved? Apple, Inc., ConnectED, and other educratic partnerships. The second 2015 article featured the CCSS Machine’s chokehold on network TV for ‘educational purposes’. You’ll be able to see other CCSS Machine member organizations and how XQ became partners with them for “National Graduation Day”. Warriors, think of it as “Live From the US: Indoctrination by Broadcast!”
Speaking of ‘broadcast’, below is XQ’s Super School Movement. There are already 10 in operation across America.
Now, let’s look at the colorful ad again, this time notice the highlighted portions.
Warriors, do you notice XQ can be tied back to the U.S. Dept. of Ed as well as Steve Jobs’ widow? (or visit here) Warriors, the EIF (Entertainment Industry Foundation) was begun in the 1940s. It’s got globally reaching arms in education, cancer research, and other projects. From their 2015 Annual Report, “Think It Up” page, you’ll see the globally overreaching CCSS Machine members: The Gates Foundation and EXXON Mobile as key ‘support’:
Warriors, according to the EIF 2015 990 form, the group has lobbying power as well as foreign grant making powers.
Live From The US: Digital Promise, ESSA, XQ, and UN’s SDGs!:
Warriors, ESSA has mandated Digital Promise (a White House created initiative)!
If you didn’t know this, here’s the original documentation from the Obama Administration, creating DP.
If you missed the ESSA’s embedding for DP, find the references to not only DP, but the other digital/technology ESSA strangleholdshere. (*Note: this article also reveals how Digital Promise was embedded in the HEA, Higher Education Act.
By ESSA tying to WIOA and HEA, what’s in one law, will show up in all 3 in some fashion.)
If you’d like to see how the ESSA/DP is playing out in real time in NC, click here.(*Note: look at the leadership involved in your State. Are they pushing for digital overloading your schools?)
So, how does DP play into the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals? How does XQ fit into all this? Digital Promise’s own documents! For starters, look at the CCSS Machine members who are funding DP:
Then, look at this evidence which ties DP to the UN’s SDGs(*Note: Digital Promise Global was launched in 2015):
You can access the DP 2016 Annual Report here. As far as the teachers, DP has much to do with their alignment to digital CCSS Machine ways. Because of this, you’ll see LESS deviation from a prescribed format. This means LESS freedom for HOW teachers will be able to exercise teaching abilities.
Warriors, think of it as “Live From the US: Globally Aligned Manipulation”!
Warriors, earlier in 2017, I showed you how Project XQ was part of the undermining of local schools..the very ones your students may very well be in or heading to.
If you wish to see for yourselves the UN’s plans for ‘lifelong learning’, visit their 2009 Education Return on Investment document. What you see below was featured in this article where ‘lifelong learning’ was also discussed.
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.
To 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..”)
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:
Is 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:
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:
Back in 2016, MarketWatch’swebsite 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!
Anti Fed Ed Warriors, the G20 Summit has ended for this year.
What missed the mainstream media (as far as I know) is the state of education, according to the G20. What was said? What was plotted? Will all this tie to ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) or WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act)? Will the STEM Act (Science, Technology, Engineering , and Math) be included? What about the impact on the re-writing of the HEA (Higher Education Act)? The UN’s SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), are a uniting bond between all these American ‘education’ laws and connected programs.
What Those G20 Leaders Did:
From what I’ve found, the G20 (stands for ‘Group of 20’) has sub-groups. An overall theme of the G20 and all its sub-groups is an “interconnected world”. One such sub-group is the B20 (Business 20). Look below what they came up with while in Germany:
If you haven’t heard of the B20, click here to access their 2017 website information.
So, what ISG20’s agenda when it comes to education?
Four main points, my fellow Warriors: a) more females as business leaders/owners b) more immigrants and refugees in the workforce c) supply chains which embed the SDGs d) future workforce
The 2 uniting factors for the G20’s agenda? a) our youth b) social issues
In the B20’s White Paper, you’ll find how education is (once again) used as an ‘ends to a means’, NOT as an endeavor of its own. Plenty of ‘innovation’, technology, and skill based learning are part and parcel of the B20Plan to support the G20 agenda!
Warriors, if you wish to have further proof of America’s resolve to become global (and not remain a strong nation of our own), consider these facts: a) America is a ‘card carrying member’ of both the UN and the G20. This means whatever agenda items these groups have, the US has as well. These, items are either already in our backyards, or will be very soon! b) The G20 has the following sentences ‘buried’ in their 2017 Agenda, “The G20 will be resolute in its endeavours to ensure the rapid and comprehensive implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with its global goals for sustainable development, and of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda.”
What’s The ‘Addis Ababa Action Agenda’?
Basically, its a set of 134 items created in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) back in 2015 to finance all the needed programs and goals of the Sustainable Developmental Goals by the UN. Actually, there are only 133 items. The last item is the plan for a possible 2019 meeting to see how things are going.
In this particular document (2015 for a ‘post-2015’ world), you’ll find legal frameworks, either already in place, or about to be set in place; you’ll find how public-private partnerships will use private money to support the common, public good; you’ll see how STEM and data mining will go hand in hand, and there’s more.
Several world financial entities are named. For example, the World Bank. (Warriors, we’ve known for a long time how the World Bank backed Common Core. It still supports in the the ESSA Era, too.)
As has been shared in the past, education is #4 on the SDG list of 17 items. Every one of the 17 SDGs is already in America’s backyard.
Warriors, also appearing in our backyards are the school programs and extra-curricular events centered about global citizens or making our world better. Listen to the words this ‘ambassador for education’ utters in this short YouTube video. The video was filmed a few days ago during the G20 Summit. Notice the backdrop, look at the bottom right hand corner to see the SDG colorful wheel appear every so often during the video.
*Note:in the video clip, Sharika refers to an international finance committee. She suggests an investment of trillions of dollars to support global education. Her ties to the UN are thick. Thus, the ties to the CCSS Machine are also there. (Sharika focuses on early childhood education.) We’ve seen as Warriors what’s happened to this age group in education, thanks to the CCSS Machine.
The committee Sharika meant is the International Commission on Financing Global Education Opportunity. You can access their website here. The USA ties to this Committee can be found in the form of two Harvard University personnel members, who are among the ICFGE’s Leadership. (Warriors, remember Harvard has been named here on my blog several times as being a key CCSS Machine member organization.)
A mandate of the Commission for education? “The Commission’s mandate was to identify the most effective and accountable ways of mobilizing and deploying resources to help ensure that all children and young people have the opportunity to participate, learn and gain the skills they need for adulthood and work in the 21st century.”
The Commission says its main focus is low-income and middle-income countries and their education debacles. Why will you find this information? Click here to get their Learning_Generation_full_report_v2.
So WHY is the US involved? Why would the US, as a first-world country need to shift its education to match everyone else’s?!
Warriors, think about it, if America doesn’t align, the agreements we’ve entered into to concerning adhering to global agenda items, we’ll have violated them.
What We CAN Do:
Warriors, encourage; no, demand that our US leaders cut the ties to the UN completely! Demand we, as a nation, divorce our nation from the agreements which have found our educational system as an intended consequence. Refuse the global pushes in your backyard. We MUST act to save our students and teachers from the global education/CCSS Machine. Demand your State STOP funding any assessment or educational resource group tied to the UN. Resist the global citizen push in your communities. End the relationships with the Unions in education. The top two, NEA and AFT are tied at the hip to the global education shift.
We are STILL American! We STILL have freedom. We MUST act now to preserve our nation.
