URGENT ACTION NEEDED
Progressive US Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) knows that this time the public will not be so easily fooled by his lies as we have been in the past. He has lied to us for years and he is lying to us about NCLB/ESEA Reauthorization. We have already had experts reading and analyzing this bill and the more they dig the worse it gets. We ARE being deceived AGAIN.
PLEASE ALSO GO TO THIS LINK: http://www.ncee.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/Executive-Summary.pdf – THIS DOCUMENT WAS WRITTEN IN 1992 BY MARC TUCKER AND THE NCEE AND IS TITLED “TOUGH CHOICES FOR TOUGH TIMES”. Starting at their page 8 begin to read and as you get to page 9 you will begin to understand their total laid out plans for our traditional public schools, charter schools, vouchers, school-to-work and how the assessments were to work along with grading and everything starting with what they intend to do with our teachers. This document is a jewel. Now you will also understand why the government is supporting Teach for America.
Do not try to put it on your web site as it will give you a copy-right message. You can save it to your computer, read it and print it out. This is one of the most important documents I have found spelling out their devious plan to ruin our children and slide into their New World Order.
Here are just a few of the issues that have been uncovered hidden in this massive ESEA bill:
1. Title 1 funding will be tied to compliance with Common Core State Standards (they should be called Common Core Federal Standards but I digress) Comply or else!!
In 2010 the US Dept. of Education created a document called “A BLUEPRINT FOR REFORM” In this document on Page 10 it clearly states that by 2015 the administration will attach Title 1 funding with compliance to common college and career standards (Common Core or Common Core aligned-which is CC with a new name and a few changes). Now do you see why Alexander MUST get this passed ASAP?????
2. Every child will be considered Title 1 and required remediation if they do not perform to the expected outcomes of Common Core.
3. 60-70 pages just on Charter Schools
4. Title 1 money to follow the child – THIS WILL be the destruction of private schools, elected school boards and traditional public schools not to mention what it will do to property taxes. Private schools will be forced to take these vouchers or go belly up. This means they will also be forced to take Common Core. So why would a parent pay more to send a child to private school if the child will get the same education for half the cost? So even if they do take the vouchers they will go belly up. This is a no win for private and religious schools. What happens to the tax structure and the local public school when kids start taking their money to other districts, counties or states? This action alone WILL destroy private schools, traditional public schools leaving Charters the only CHOICE. Is Obama’s CHOICE the CHOICE you bargained for when you supported Charter Schools? We tried to warn legislators and parents about the real agenda with Charters but they wouldn’t listen and many are still not listening. Charters WILL eliminate elected representation and they WILL end up being the ONLY CHOICE. That people is not choice. That will privatize education and make many riche people even richer. The good mom and pop Charter your children go to now will be swallowed up by the big boys. And when you complain who will you complain to?? The goal is to remove parents from the education of their children and Charters and Vouchers is exactly how it will happen.
6. We must investigate the entire TITLE I BLANKET of psychological manipulation of redefining a disability under IDEA and the rehabilitation Act which allows a disability to have interventions….not meeting social and emotional outcomes in Common Core. We can prove this through the contracts revealed in ESEA Flex Waiver. (Interpersonal Skills)
7. In Dec. 2011 President Obama issued an EO that gutted FERPA protection of our children’s data. MASSIVE Amounts of data will be collected. All data can and will be shared and that includes biometric data without parental knowledge or consent. This EO will be made permanent law in the NCLB/ESEA reauthorization.If you need more convincing that we are being deceived again please contact me and I will provide enough proof to make your head spin. THIS ISOBAMA’S EQUITY PLAN.We are told by DC that Alexander is pushing this through so fast they don’t know which way is left. And why is he pushing it through so fast? Remember the Blueprint for Reform……read it. NCLB/ESEA expired in 2007 but NOW it MUST be slammed in. You betcha. Because the citizens in America are pushing back and getting legislators to push back on the federal take over (which Alexander has supported and pushed since the later 80’s) So they have to act fast before we “read the bill to find out what’s in the bill” Well they underestimated us. We are reading the bill and we are finding it must be REPEALED/SUNSETTED not REAUTHORIZED. DO NOT LET THEM SOFT SHOE YOU because they WILL try. The majority of them have not even read the reauthorization.If you do nothing else to save our children I am truly begging you to share this with EVERYONE you know and call your US Representative and your 2 US Senators (in TN that includes Alexander). Let them know we want ESEA/NCLB to be SUNSETTED or outright repealed NOT reauthorized. Please feel free to provide any feedback you get after you make your calls. PLEASE start calling. Leave a message. If the line is busy keep calling until you get through. Also send an email to your US Rep. and your 2 US Senators. We MUST hit them hard. If you have conservative media contacts, if you belong to a group, if you have friends, neighbors, relatives. PLEASE get this out to EVERYONE. Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest……….this issue is more important than any issue we will face and we need to give it as much push as we did with so many issues in the past. They do respond to phone calls and emails but they must come in hundreds to each Representative and Senator!!!
