School Choice: The Hidden Dangers! Must Be Watched Videos!

It is essential that parents and parents-to-be fully understand what is happening in our education system and to fully understand what “School Choice” means to them and their children. When every education system offered (public, charter, voucher private/religious) must be aligned to a certain set of standards, that is NOT a choice.

Again I want to remind you this slow shift in the control of your children through their education has been around for over 100 years. This is not a PARTY “D” or “R” thing, both are involved. What you are seeing is a “pass of control” if you will, from the “unions to the corporate” cronies or from one group of “bad guys” to another group of “bad guys”. Understand none of them are your friends.

This is “SKILLS-BASED EDUCATION”! So you ask what is the difference between skill-based education and knowledge based education.

SKILL-BASED:  This form of education is more about teaching our children “WHAT” to think and it centers around developing and applying specific skills that can then be used to obtain the required knowledge for the workforce. From a teacher’s point of view, it changes the way lesson planning is done. Whereas before the focus would have been on how they could teach the class about a certain topic, skills-based learning means that the focus is now on how that topic can help the children to develop and learn certain skills. In other words, “dumbed down education” and this is where you get 2+2=5 or whatever a child wants. The goal is for the child to be able to justify their anser not so much as if it is correct.

ACADEMIC/KNOWLEDGE BASED:  Teaches a child “HOW” to think and to build upon the knowledge that the pupil already has. There are clear learning objectives set out which link to the activity undertaken, helping the child to see how their existing knowledge will help them to complete the task. For teachers this can mean having more one on one time with pupils to talk through how they are finding the task/subject and giving any additional help they may need. This can seem time-consuming but it will ensure that all pupils are engaged and learning during the lessons and that they will all succeed.

These videos will show you and go into more detail about behind the “double-speak” words which are being used in regard to education/school choice:

PRIVATIZATION:

Understood Meaning:  Allowing a true and free market to work i.e., private schools

Hidden Meaning:  Cronyism in the form of Public-Private Partnerships

SCHOOL CHOICE:

Understood Meaning:  A parent can choose from a wide range of different schools and options

Hidden Meaning:  Parent’s can choose from a narrow range of schools deemed acceptable by the government with no real choice

EDUCATIONAL SAVINGS ACCOUNTS:

Understood Meaning:  A tax-free savings account into which parents may place their own earnings to use for the education options they choose from for their children

Hidden Meaning:  Entitlement programs in the form of vouchers subject to total government control

ACCOUNTABILITY:

Understood Meaning:  That the system (teachers, school boards & government) are answerable to parents & taxpayers

Hidden Meaning:  Answerable to your State and through the ESEA Federal government bureaucracy

LOCAL CONTROL:

Understood Meaning:  Local school districts are setting policy

Hidden Meaning:  The state determines a narrow range in which school districts may have a narrow range of pre-selected options

COMPETENCY:

Understood Definition:  Proficiency in an academic area

Hidden Definition:  Skills-based emotional and psychological training to be used in industry (utilitarian)

“Educating” the Workforce:  The Lie we’ve Unwittingly Embraced:

Part 1   Part 2   Part 3   Part 4

Keep in mind that foundations like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Walmart Family Foundation, ALEC, and others have invested deeply and supported BOTH Common Core and Choice/Vouchers.

Example: Education legislation just passed yesterday by Florida includes:

Praises from Jeb Bush and his lapdogs; critics are referring to it as manipulative and detrimental to traditional public schools;  the 278-page bill eliminates a section of Florida’s often-criticized, 2011 teacher merit-pay law; changes standardized testing rules; mandates 20 minutes of recess for elementary school children (exempting charter schools); expands a controversial teacher bonus program and provides new bonuses for most teachers for the next three years.

It also provides financial incentives for successful charter schools to open in neighborhoods with struggling traditional public schools and demands that school districts share some tax money with charters.

Gov. Scott’s $82.4 billion budget is a less than 1% increase from the current year. It includes $20.4 billion for PreK-12 schools, or $7,221 per student, about a $25 increase on the current year, the smallest jump since Florida began to climb out of the recession. House Speaker Corcoran’s push to use $200 million to entice charter schools to compete with chronically failing public schools and another $200 million to pay teachers bonuses based on SAT scores made the cut. (Keep in mind NO ONE will answer a question about the fraud and corruption going on within the Charter school system, not even if any of the money is being paid back or if anyone is going to jail.)There was a great deal of conversation surrounding transparency regarding the closed-door negotiations. But then the lack of transparency in Florida is nothing new since our legislature has for several years received a D or F in that area.

When called on the closed-door meetings, House Speaker Coocoran stated, “Under Article III (of the state Constitution), we have that right, and I’ve said it to you guys from the beginning: One of my biggest criticisms coming in as speaker was, we’re the body closest to the people, the Legislature. And what we’re going to do is, we’re going to go out there and we’re going to grab that authority.” Whew, he certainly sees himself as important. They change everything else in the Constitution, why never the bad things?

Lawmakers also approved legislation on Friday that would increase funding available to students under the state’s de facto voucher program and strengthen protections for expressions of religion in public schools.

Again all this entitlement and lack of oversight in regard to Charter schools with our legislators owning or being associated with Charter schools and at the same time writing and voting on Charter school legislation.

Our State colleges also took a $30.2 million cut, but then the amount being paid to college professors is enough to blow a person’s mind. The amount of debt our children graduate from college with is inexcusable. Take UCF, now the largest college in the country just gave their coach Scott Frost a 300,000 annual raise. The American Athletic Conference coach now earns $2 million per year after one season on the job.

 

This forward movement to control our children through education is controlling every aspect of government at this time. Parents was to fix it is to STOP re-electing these same old pieces of legislature bull and get some new blood in and if they defy us, then move them out too. They are re-call measures you know!

Betsy DeVos – A Disaster for Education?

Betsy DeVos and her husband, Dick DeVos Jr., are perhaps best known as big-time donors to Republican candidates and groups. Jeb Bush gave her the highest accolade he could from his point of view and that was Bush referring to DeVos as a major contributor to the Republican Party. The Party? That’s all?

 

Jeb Bush of Florida, where Ms. DeVos helped push legislation establishing tax credits for scholarships to private schools, called her an “outstanding pick,” a “passionate change agent to press for a new education vision.”

 

Change Agents are someone who is assigned or directed to intentionally change social attitudes, cultural values, thoughts, attitudes and morals of school children. TARGET: To change parental and church inspired morals, values and attitudes regarding life in general that are taught at home to destroy all PARENTAL INFLUENCE. Some teachers are change agents – trained to be change agents.

 

Not that DeVos is an excellent educator because she isn’t and not that she has worked to improve education because she hasn’t. She has offered nothing to education besides her billions because she is all about two things; the Republican Party and using her money to buy her way! DeVos in her own way is a “change agent”.

 

The closest she has come to actually being involved in education was in pushing policy’s which is school choice with vouchers and a side helping of charter schools. Conservative school choice activists hailed her as a disrupter, and as someone who would block what they see as Federal intrusion of local schools all the while using public tax dollars to feed into private schools. That is taxation without representation.

 

American parents must understand that what is wrong with the public education system is the non-educators like DeVos and legislators who know nothing about the education of children and are determined to control our children and their futures as “human capital”. The plan has been laid out for years and they have been even dumb enough to put their ideas and plans on paper.

 

Funneling citizens tax dollars into Charter School Management companies which include Muslim Gulen schools only to have them fail with the massive fraud, corruption, and no excuses education and the massive use of H-1B and EB5 visa’s is out of control. People like DeVos who believe they can buy their way following the “yellow brick road” to total private education and ruling the country through our children are selfish and self-centered.

 

This is why they are fighting so hard to gain control of home-schoolers because they know they have no control there. Those parents are still putting their tax dollars into the till while paying extra for home-school non-common core curriculums.

 

The DeVos campaign donation records have a very long trail. The part that bothers me is that most of those donations went to Senators who cast votes as to yes or no for her confirmation and are on the Senate education committee and subsequently on the Senate floor.

 

There have not been any campaign records presented that show the DeVos’ contributed to the Trump campaign of which I am not surprised as they were strong Rubio contributors.

 

Over the years, the DeVos’ have donated to individuals at varying levels of government who are involved in the education of our children. I personally resent these individuals who believe their money is what is required or wanted to lay out our children’s futures. That is the parent’s rights to do and one of the goals of the DeVos’ and their political friends have laid out is THEIR control of your children.

 

How many times must we repeat Senator Lamar Alexander’s statement of controlling our children from “cradle to grave”, “sunrise to sunset” and away from their parents? The whole thing is to break the ideology and teaching of children by their parents. Parents are to no longer to be part of the equation. LINK LINK

 

Remember in 1989 his goal was the development of a “brand new American school”. We are to go to the maternity wards at hospitals around the country and determine how many have been born out of wedlock. Alexander doesn’t state the importance of that information. He calls for the school to be year round, from 6A.M.-6P.M., and ages 3 months to 18 years. And we as parents are supposed to trust these elected officials who destroy everything they touch to control the lives of our children? Especially when one of their main goals is to remove all parental influence regarding God, Family, and Country.

 

In 1997, Betsy DeVos wrote an op-ed for the newspaper Roll Call in which she defended “soft money” (campaign contributions to political parties that avoid legal limits on contributions to individual candidates).

 

DeVos, who was chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party at the time, (one of four terms) wrote that her family was the biggest contributor of soft money to the national Republican Party, and that “occasionally a wayward reporter will try to make the charge that we are giving this money to get something in return, or that we must be purchasing influence in some way.” She wears her money as a badge!

 

DeVos stated, “I have decided, however, to stop taking offense at the suggestion that we are buying influence. Now I simply concede the point. They are right. We do expect some things in return.” (Just another “swamp dweller”!) DeVos wrote in Roll Call, “We expect to foster a conservative governing philosophy consisting of limited government and respect for traditional American virtues. We expect a return on our investment; we expect a good and honest government. Furthermore, we expect the Republican Party to use the money to promote these policies, and yes, to win elections.”

 

Does it sound like sound reasoning to have the future of our children in this woman’s hands? With DeVos you have another alarming factor to take into consideration and that is her religious belief ‘s and how she sees their use in education. Again, please do not misunderstand me as I would also like to see our country go back to being under the teaching and umbrella of the Holy Bible rather than the teachings of the Communist Manifesto, but not in a way that the whole country MUST follow what my beliefs would dictate.

 

DeVos and her family are Calvinists and have the same basic beliefs as the form of religion Ted Cruz and David Barton follow using as one of their foundations Matthew 1:26: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. KJV Calvinists and other Evangelical groups believe this gives them dominion also over all the people and the government. This is one of the main problems with some of the existing Evangelical groups – taking the word of God out of context and giving it a new meaning. I see nowhere in that verse the mention of humans or government.

 

DeVos in some circles is considered a religious zealot who spoke about using public education to “advance God’s Kingdom.” I don’t know about you, but I don’t want anyone basing our children’s education on the religious beliefs of anyone else. Our beliefs are personal and private and not to be used to control others. Those trying to destroy this country through the Manifesto named the removal of religion and the teaching of the parents as part of their agenda. Hence, I believe the “New World Order” guys and gals know this to be an important part of our children’s lives.

 

Most Americans know there is no such thing as “separation of church and state”, but others use it to gain special treatment. Using our tax dollars or corporate funding when the funds are not being separated out is wrong especially when the funds are being used currently and primarily to send “low-income” children to religious schools.

 

Please do not misunderstand me as I have absolutely no problem with any of our children attending religious schools. But if any of our tax dollars are used to pay for that education that is once again “taxation without representation”, the same as it is in regard to charter schools and their unelected school boards.

 

The DeVos so-called religious plan is to ensure all religious parents get a voucher to send their children to a school of their choice. Is this not discrimination? A new way to form segregation? Parents actually think they are going to escape the claws of the Common Core plan. This is one of the bigger lies being told to parents since any school, public, private or parochial that takes one red cent from the federal government MUST follow the rules and laws that are attached to that funding. If you are not aware, many private and parochial schools played the “Race to the Top” game and took Federal $$.

 

If you haven’t noticed, most with their hands into the ruination of your children’s futures is being pushed by those of the Republican Party, from the Federal level to the local level. But wait, why aren’t the Democrats screaming bloody murder since they are the ones always calling for the non-existent “separation of church and state”? Because the voucher program is being aimed once again at “low-income” students.

 

People like Jeb Bush, Chris Whittle, John Kirtley, Lamar Alexander, Chester Finn, Jr., and the two Florida Senators who introduced the Amendment – Sen. Thad Altman,(R) and Rep. Scott Plakon, (R) repeatedly tried to convenience the voters of Florida they only wanted to protect religiously-based social services.

 

They went so far as to state the Blaine Amendment was prejudice and was against the Catholic Church. Never mind the two men who wrote Amendment 8 were both Catholic and their goal was to have the tax dollar funding go to private and parochial schools.

 

The important thing here is not that the Amendment was defeated, but to what lengths these people have gone to in order to not only turn our children’s education into a basket of weeds but the force and control over our children that they desire to have. It is to be “their way or the highway” so to speak. You as a parent are to have NO say!

 

Florida is using vouchers stating the Supreme Court’s ruling does not apply because there will be NO tax dollars used to pay the tuition (vouchers). The voucher program here in Florida is being called the “tax credit scholarship program” and it allows businesses to get credits on their state tax bills if they donate to an organization that gives vouchers to children in low-income families. I don’t know about you, but for me, this is nothing more than a “pay to play” game using our children once again to gain their control.

 

In Florida in 2015, almost all of the children receiving vouchers were attending religious schools. The families of nearly 100,000 Florida students received vouchers worth about $544 million that year as the Legislature has steadily increased support for the programs. That growth has come despite critics who contend that vouchers divert money from public schools to private institutions that do not have the same student-testing or teacher-accountability rules and can freely mix education with religion.

 

Stop the presses – Floridians were told the voucher funding was to come from businesses who would get credits on their state tax bills. You see what this game is? The business donates to a charity for a tax credit while donating to the legislators who pass these lenient bills regarding education and it is a “win win” for everyone but the children in the end as they are being used as “human capital”. The plan is to ensure ALL children fall under the umbrella of government/private control and that the taxpayers will continue to pay without having all the facts, the right to disagree with them or even worse, NOT CARING.

 

This is called the removal of REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT! You no longer count!

 

DeVos’ Michigan is one of the nation’s biggest school choice laboratories, especially with charter schools. The Detroit, Flint and Grand Rapids school districts have among the nation’s 10 largest shares of students in charters, and the state sends $1 billion in education funding to charters annually. Of those schools, 80 percent are run by for-profit organizations, a far higher share than anywhere else in the nation.

 

Laboratories or experiments is a good reference for charter schools, especially in Michigan. [LINK] This past October, U.S. Secretary of Education John King (R) paid a visit to Detroit, during which time he offered some advice to Michigan education leaders in an interview: stop shuttering failing schools because the schools we’re replacing them with are no better.  I wonder if he met with DeVos while there.

 

If Michigan is a center of school choice, it is also among one of the worst places to argue that choice has made schools better. As the state embraced and then expanded charters over the past two decades, its rank has fallen on national reading and math tests. Most charter schools perform below the state average.

 

And a federal review in 2015 found “an unreasonably high” percentage of charter schools on the list of the state’s lowest-performing schools. The number of charter schools on that list had doubled since 2010, after the passage of a law a group financed by Ms. DeVos pushed to expand the schools. The group blocked a provision in that law that would have prevented failing schools from expanding or replicating.

 

The Michigan law pushed by Ms. DeVos to establish charter schools over 20 years ago allows an unusually large number of organizations to start such schools, yet established little mechanism for oversight. Even Republican supporters of charter schools say the law has allowed failing charter schools to expand or replicate.

 

Last spring, the DeVos-backed group was the chief force behind the defeat of legislation that would have established standards for identifying and closing failing schools, both charter and public, in Detroit, where a flood of charter schools in the past decade has created what even charter school supporters call chaos.

 

If nothing else tells you what a DeVos leadership will do to our already very lenient legislation regarding charters/choice/vouchers, nothing else will. We can hope that Trump was misled in his appointment of DeVos as she is a greater danger to our children and our country than any of the other nominees.

Bill Gates – A God in His Own Mind Part 1

America’s Answer to Bill Gates Hitler Youth Movement

For most of us the most important thing in this world is our children. We do everything we can to protect them from danger, keep them well and are willing to work at destroying anything and everything out to cause them harm in any way.

Millions of American parents now realize there are many of our elected legislators both in their State and Federal government who claim they are passing legislation that is good for our children, but we parents know better.

I want to acknowledge I understand parents have been busy working, playing, parenting, dealing with aging parents, their own health issues – this very thing that have been a round robin forever. However, what you didn’t have time to pay attention to was the “deliberate dumbing down” of all of us since the beginning of the 20th Century.

For years now legislation has been passed leading up to the passage of the ESSA or “Every Student Succeeds Act” which if it wasn’t so dangerous to our children would be comical. Many of these individual’s names appear and re-appear time after time on bills to continue down the path to destroying our children and to be put under the CONTROL of the FEDERAL government.

If you have the time and are so inclined I invite you to read “TIMELINE OF THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA THROUGH THE EDUCATION OF OUR CHILDREN”.

Whether you want to believe it or not, everything that has been put in motion in this country since 1896 has been a path to a “New World Order”. We also have non-elected corporate individuals who believe their money can buy them anything they want and that is for the most part true. Our elected’s are only interested in what money is flowing into their wallets which is why they could care less what we think about anything.

When you mention Bill and Melinda Gates names in some circles reporting they are not the “good guys” they want you to think they are, people respond with “Well look at all the money they give away!” Have you really ever looked at all the things they have used their money for?

Gates financial input into the push for Common Core is public knowledge. One must ask why he is such a strong supporter of this inferior form of education for the masses of the children while his own children and grand-children (and those like him) are attending schools which DO NOT use Common Core.

The truth is, the children of the elite are to remain the “elite” overseeing the rest of us and the rest of us are to be the “workforce”.

What is the point of placing your children in Charter schools when they are still teaching Common Core?

Our youth have been so flooded with messages of immorality aligned to the Communist Manifesto that our country is now set up for anything goes. The schools and news media are bombarding our children with lies (they admit are lies) about “global warming” and festering their minds with how great it will be with a New World Order in place.

Our children are being indoctrinated in school with messages which separate them from their parents and the family structure with phrases like “out with the old and in with the new”. Even some far right religious sects are following the same theme preaching the bible out of context telling our children and adults “their” version of the Bible is the “new” enlightenment for the future of the WORLD. Keep in mind when being preached to that if it is “new” it is “wrong” and if it is “old” it is “right”.

Any takeover of any nation must and has begun with the entrapment of the children by propagandizing them into a nation of new goals with leaders who are selfish and evil. In America this has been done by the imbedded lie that we “must” send our children to school 5 days a week for 6-7 hours for 13 years of their life (now to include Pre-K) to be trained by strangers who in some cases have been trained to turn your children into non-thinking robots.

YOUR CHARGE TO YOURSELF AND YOUR CHILDREN’S WELFARE SHOULD

BE TO REMOVE THEM FROM ANY GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED

EDUCATION AND HOME SCHOOL THEM

But be aware, there are NEW youth programs cropping up around the country with the direct purpose of undermining your parental authority. These Hitler type movement’s springing up are spreading the message that conformity is good and individual expression of liberty is undesirable. In other words “group” think is right – belief and support of the Constitution is wrong since it is outdated and outmoded (thank you Mark Levin).

John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute commented on the brainwashing of our American youth:  “How do you persuade a nation of relatively freedom-loving individuals to march in lock step with a police state? Among other things you indoctrinate the young people to your way of thinking, relying primarily on the public schools and popular culture’ to get the job done.

Obama told us he was going to create a civilian military force which of course is to be aligned and beholden to him. What do you believe this is going to give us?

Look at this way! What do you suppose the mental development and thought process of an 18 year old is when you make them a part of the Dept. of Homeland Security’s “first responder’s” especially when you know Obama has been increasing FEMA’s ammunition and heavily-armed fighting vehicles and you are putting guns into the hands of these 18 year olds. Do you believe these 18 year olds will think before firing when they have been told they are working under a “population control” agenda?

Is this in fact a Youth Army? DHS will tell you NO but the leaking stories give us different facts! An illegal migrant refugee camp at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas has a security force referring to themselves as “Brown Shirts” being used as the security force over the workers not the refugee’s. Why over the worker’s? Because BCFS, a part of the Dept. of Health and Human Services, doesn’t want the American people to know about the diseases accompanying these refugees. Employees are under threat of firing if they leak information about the camp.

Bill and Melinda Gates have initiated an offshoot of Agenda 21 programs known as Global Citizen Nights.  Also supported by Forbes, Global citizen nights are designed to lure in youth and young adults and have them engage in some kind of global service with regard to the UN agenda’s such as water sanitation, Ebola, youth protection and health. In exchange for their good deeds, the participating teens earn points and then are able to exchange their “globalist points” for high valued items such as concert tickets. Personal servitude to society sends the message to the young that your life does not belong to you. Charity towards one’s own community should be borne out of a desire to help or heel in the name of some cause that has personal appeal to a young person. Mandatory compliance to these “volunteer program’s” conditions youth that their lives do not belong to them and that the state has the final authority of one’s actions.

Why do you believe Sen. Lamar Alexander, Joel Klein, Chester Finn, Marc Tucker, Hillary Clinton, Linda Darling-Hammond and others are such strong supporters of so much government control rather than parental control over the raising of our children?

When one joins this globalist propaganda program, they are told that “Bill Gates recognizes that individuals have diverse passions and offers the Global Citizen network as one where, ‘some people will pick women’s reproductive rights, some will pick agriculture and then there are NGOs in each of those areas that you can volunteer for, give money to, and feel connected.”  LINK

Once again I want to remind the reader’s, America has and is pouring BILLIONS of dollars into the United Nations every year for programs such as these very programs listed for the children to “volunteer” their services for “credits”. Is it the American people’s fault the UN continues sending money to the impoverished countries through the hands of their dictators and it never reaches those who need it?

Is it the fault of the American people that after 60+ years the countries the UN were supposed to help are still just as sick and poor? What have they done with all that money? Where are the audits? Where is the accountability from an agency which is being used to turn our world into their idea of a world – a New World Order?

Are you aware the only reason for the creation of the United Nations was to become the head governmental agency of a New World Order? Too bad our government and these corporations are not as interested in our homeless and hungry including our veterans.

“Global Citizen” is copyrighted 2012-2016 Global Poverty Project, Inc. When one joins this globalist propaganda program, they are told that “Bill Gates recognizes that individuals have diverse passions and offers the Global Citizen network as one where, ‘some people will pick women’s reproductive rights, some will pick agriculture and then there are other areas they might support. Add into the mix the NGOs in each of those areas that you can volunteer for, give money to, and feel connected.”

To give a “positive” note, the Global Citizen Nights are intended to replace the drug-infested raves. However, rather than destroying their bodies with drugs such as ecstasy, the youth are destroying their minds with globalist propaganda.  One of the central themes of the Global Citizen Nights is the deliberate denigration of national sovereignty (e.g. “sovereignty is so 20th century) and the adoption of the globalist agenda at an age when young people’s minds are prone to extremist thinking. Hence the huge following of our college students for Bernie Sanders!

Forbes is one of the biggest supporters of this movement. Never forget that it is the “elite” of the world that want us “average, low-life” to be the workers of the world, supporting them while we have nothing. Indoctrinating our children to believe the GLOBAL WAY is the right way is teaching our children they should have no appreciation or allegiance to include their values and morals, which created this great country. Their vision is for our children to be GLOBAL!

Even Michael Farris, the over Lord of the Home School Legal Defense Fund and supporter of the Convention of States wants to place an amendment to the Constitution regarding “parental rights” – offering parental rights come from “man or government” rather than God.

1934 – National Education Association (NEA) Former Executive Secretary Willard Givens warned that “…all of us, including the ‘owners’, must be subjected to a large degree of social control… An equitable distribution of income will be sought… the major function of the school is the social orientation of the individual. It must seek to give him understanding of the transition to a new social order.” LINK

1942 – The editor of the NEA Journal, J. Elmer Morgan, wrote an editorial titled “The United Peoples of the World.” In it, he explained a world government’s need for an educational branch, a world system of money and credit, a world police force, and a world bill of rights and duties.” LINK

1948 – Canadian psychiatrist and World War II General Brock Chisholm, M.D. head of the World Health Organization (WHO), promoted the behavior modification processes now mandated through Bill Clinton’s Goals 2000 leading to the current Common Core Standards, ESSA and Charter/Choice/Vouchers. Compare his vision with today’s Mastery Learning and planned control of the family. LINK

1951 – In a report entitled, The Greatest Subversive Plot In History, Rep. John T. Wood of Idaho, stated in the Congressional Record reference to UNESCO’s scheme to pervert public education appearing in a series of nine volumes, titled “Toward World Understanding” which presumes to instruct kindergarten and elementary grade teachers in the fine art of preparing our youngsters for the day when their first loyalty will be to a world government.”  LINK

The record continues, “The program is quite specific. The teacher is to begin by eliminating any and all words, phrases, descriptions, pictures, maps, classroom material or teaching methods of a sort causing his pupils to feel or express a particular love for, or loyalty to, the United States of America.

Children exhibiting such prejudice as a result of prior home influence, “of which “UNESCO calls “the outgrowth of the narrow family spirit” are to be dealt an abundant measure of counter propaganda at the earliest possible age. Booklet V, on page 9, advises the teacher that:  The kindergarten or infant school has a significant part to play in the child’s education. Not only can it correct many of the errors of home training, but it can also prepare the child for membership in the world society.” 

PARENTS – This is exactly what Current Common Core is intended to do and now with the endorsement of the ESSA, there is no path to saving our children other than taking them out of Public Schools and Homeschooling!

1974 – Alvin Toffler (Newt Gingrich’s mentor) along with Willard Wirtz and other futurists wrote a report issued to the Institute for Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) (those wonderful Commissioners of Education who forced Common Core on our children 30+ years later) titled “Man, Education, and Society in the Year 2000”. Other CSSO participants were George H. W. Bush, James Baker and Edmund de Rothschild.

November 17, 2004 – And YOU want to believe Bill Gates is this great guy because he gives all this money away.  Believe me – his money is spent for the intention to indoctrinate our children or support eugenics. At UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, UNESCO signed a 26-page ‘Cooperation Agreement’ with Microsoft Corporation to develop a ‘master curriculum (Syllabus)’ for teacher training in information technologies based on [global] standards, guidelines, benchmarks, and assessment techniques. The Agreement states that the Syllabus will ‘form the basis for deriving training content to be delivered to teachers,’ and ‘UNESCO will explore how to facilitate content development.”

In other words, that “Cooperation Agreement” calls for a world-wide system of global standards. Its manipulative techniques were designed to conform human resources to the demands of the rising totalitarian world government. No matter what we call its manipulative education standards — “Common Core,” “Outcome Based Education” or “No Child Left Behind” — the schools of the future would be pressed into the socialist shape of UNESCO and the NEA. Remember, the NEA shares UNESCO’s goals. No wonder, since NEA elites helped launch UNESCO! Back in 1946, it celebrated the formation of UNESCO as “the culmination of a movement for the creation of an international agency of education.” What the NEA planned in secret has become today’s reality. The NEA Journal proudly announced their new rules:  “…each member nation… has a duty to see to it that nothing in its curriculum . . . is contrary to UNESCO‘s aims.”

Like the NEA, UNESCO promotes abortion, disarmament and world government. It has much in common with Agenda 21, (and Bill Gates) the radical framework for a totalitarian globalism under the banner of “Saving the Earth” and shrinking the world population. [See Gorbachev’s Plan for a United WorldOur children would be trained, not just to conform to UNESCO’s agenda, but to serve as activists ready to serve, promote, spy and fight for a world government with zero tolerance for traditional values.

Just so you know – San Francisco, September 27, 1995 at the first global “State of the World Forum” sponsored by the UN, Zbigniew Brzezinski, former head of the Trilateral Commission and Obama’s mentor stated:  “We cannot leap into world government in one quick step . . . . The precondition for . . . genuine globalization is progressive regionalization, because thereby we move toward larger, more stable, more cooperative units.” Make no mistake, Obama has been taking his instructions first and foremost from Brzezinski and he became his foreign policy adviser in 2008).

And WE the PEOPLE have allowed this to happen – remember almost every city and county in this country has “regionalism” committees. Wake Up!

Your Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and Federalist Papers do not call for this country to be ruled over by the likes of the United Nations or anyone else. It is “We the People”!

I could go on forever, but to what point? Parents are finding too many excuses for not removing their children from Federally Funded Schools.  Parents – your children’s Favorite Learning Place should be “Schoolhouse Home”!

Local School Boards Are Being Replaced, Stripped of Power Part 1

Ann Herzer   May 2013

Dr. Shirley McCune, senior director of the federally funded Mid-Continent Regional Education Laboratory was involved in a planning workshop in Millard, Nebraska, July 21, 1983. She presented a plan for systematic change for our total society. One paper stated that we are moving from “party politics” to “policies of the radical center.” The radical right and the radical left appear to have met in mid-center on several issues: Goals 2000; School-to-Work; NAFTA and GATT.

The New American Schools Development Corporation’s radical design teams have been selected to “break the mold” away from basic-traditional education in order to train children for the global workforce. Privatizing education through Charter Schools allows these radical design teams, and other private entities such as The Edison Project, Educational Alternatives, Inc., and Disney World (Mickey Mouse Schools) to rob American citizens of their own tax-supported schools. This plan is being supported by both the right-wing and the left-wing political groups who appear to have met in the radical mid-center on education, social control and a global economy.

Dr. Shirley McCune appears with former Secretary of Education Lamar Alexander at the Kansas Governor’s Summit on Education in 1989. She made the following statement:

“…what we are into is a total restructuring of the society. What is happening in America today…is not simply a change4 situation and the usual winds of change. What it amounts to is a total transformation of our society…The whole ball game in this particular change society is that there are only two things that really matter. One of those is the information capital that we can put together…Secondly, to produce Human Capital…we have to prepare students not for today’s society, but for a society that’s 20, 30, 40, 50 years down the road…That’s called Social Change Function of schools.”

Lamar Alexander (now United States Senator from Tennessee) on “The New American School,” said at the Kansas Governor’s Education Summit:

Such a school would probably start with babies and go through the eighth grade. It would be all year-long. It would be open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Every child would have his or her own computer and work-station. Every child would have a team of teachers that would stay with that child until graduation. These schools would ‘serve children from age three months old to age 18′ and they would serve as a ‘one-stop shopping’ center for welfare services ranging from family planning, health care, and other social services. Legislation should ‘assure that all women have access to affordable, high quality parental care and that all infants and children have access to affordable, high quality comprehensive health care'”.

The health care plan for children and families may be found in Beyond Rhetoric, “Final Report of the National Commission on Children” that was established by Public Law 100-203. This bipartisan body was composed of 34 members appointed by the President, the President pro tempore of the U. S. Senate, and the Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives. The Chairman was Hon. John D. Rockefeller IV and some of the other members were: Hon. Bill Clinton, Mary Hattwood Futrell (former President of NEA), and Hon. Bill Honing (former Commissioner of Education for California), and others active in restructuring education.

This Panel had several meetings and field activities around the country. Several of the participants are involved in NASDC’s radical design teams. One meeting titled “How Children Develop Values” list John H. Buchanan, Jr., Chairman, People for the American Way, and Phyllis Schlafly founder and President of Eagle Forum and others.

One meeting titled Building a Productive Labor Force, lists Marc S. Tucker, President, National Center on Education and the Economy. (Carnegie Foundation etc.). Tucker has been one of the strongest advocates for restructuring education. (Ed. Note: He still is, and his Letter to Hillary Clinton was placed in the Congressional Record, and is posted on the web).

Appendix F: Corporate Advisory Board Members lists several interesting people who have been actively involved in restructuring. Of particular interest are Steven J. Ross, Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer, Time Warner, Inc., who through The Edison Project, intends to run public schools for profit. (Ed. Note: The Edison Project was under the direction of Chester Finn, Jr., who is involved with the Fordham Foundation, the think-tank for the right wing political groups).

The first plan for educational restructuring that I saw was a proposal by The National Council for Better Education-a project of National Conservative Foundation in 1983. This group proposed enterprise zones and defined the zones as a …”district independent of state and federal interference, regulations and control”. The Charter Schools bill in Arizona allows the Charter Schools to be legally autonomous if sponsored by the two state boards of education. With the U. S. Secretary of Education’s approval and other Federal Agencies, the schools are allowed to waive all Federal, State and Local laws, rules and regulations except …”civil rights, audit and student assessments, special education and insurance.” (Ed. Note: See Title 15 under Arizona Laws, posted on the web, under School Improvement Act).

The National Council for Better Education proposed that Chicago Mastery Learning be used as the method and that the children be trained according to whatever the market demands …”whether that be liberal arts, fine arts, or vocational education.” They further proposed that:

“Each zone will be funded from federal and state money given directly to the zone with no strings attached—sort of a mega-block grant)”.

Some Charter Schools legislation has limited restrictions for local and community input (the same as the Federal: Goals 2000), but Arizona’s law does not address this issue. The Morrison Institute that is on one of NASDC’s design teams states:

“Support needed from Teacher/Staff/Parents for School Conversion…not addressed in legislation”.

They do have to have the local schools boards’ approval to establish a Charter School on public school property, but the State is busy looking for empty rooms and buildings to fulfill this endeavor.

The second time I saw this proposal was by the Phoenix Futures Forum which later joined with the Urban League. Their paper is titled Strategies to Prepare Phoenix for the Year 2015, and is dated October, 1989.

The third time I saw this proposal was from the Arizona Business Leadership for Education (ABLE) that formed a committee in June, 1990. Their proposal was titled Better Schools for Arizona.

The next proposal was done by the Governor’s Task Force on Educational Reform which convened in May, 1991.

The American 2000 proposal was supposed to have been developed when President Bush and the Governors met in Charlottesville, Virginia, September, 1989. After William Clinton became President the title was changed to Goals 2000. (Ed. Note: President George W Bush called it No Child Left Behind and President Obama calls his version Race to the Top most probably changed to make opposition think that the “thing” had gone away. This is what has happened with the method of “Mastery Learning” noted before; it changed to Direct Instruction, Outcome Based Education, Performance Based Education and now Core Standards etc., etc.).

This proposal may also be found in literature published by the United Nations. The World Conference on Education for All was held in Jomtien, Thailand, March 5-9, 1990.

On October 30 – November 1, 1991, in Alexandria, VA. The United States Coalition for Education for All met. The title for this meeting was Learning for All: Bridging Domestic and International Education. The purpose follows:

“The U. S. Coalition for Education for All is part of a 156-nation network working to reform education worldwide.

Barbara Bush was the Honorary Chair of this meeting and the Keynote Speakers were David Kearns—Deputy Secretary, U. S. Department of Education (former CEO Xerox Corporation and, Xerox is mentioned in one of the design teams); Al Shanker, President, American Federation of Teachers; Elena Lenskaya, Deputy Minister of Education, Republic of Russia; James Grant, Executive Director, UNICEF. This is a one-world plan. Every citizen will be tracked for conformity.

The National Center for Education Statistics has a computer tracking system for public, home school, and private schools which tracks every family in the United States. While it gives lip-service to the Privacy Act of 1974, the exemptions are so broad almost anyone can access the records. (See related article). It is easy to track the resistors in a community with this instant retrieval system. (Ed. Note: A Student Data Handbook: Elementary, Secondary and Early Childhood Education, was published July, 1994, U. S. Department of Education; Office of Educational Research and Improvement, NSCES 94-303 also see the SpeedeExpress that has over 400 identifiers including birthmarks, eye color, baptismal name, nickname, etc. etc. etc.)

The National Educational Goals Panel, an appointed political group, formed to track compliance to Goals 2000 and the School-to-Work program (i. e. report-cards) issued a Community Action Kit telling the proponents exactly how to manipulate and brainwash the citizens into compliance. While most of the “free-press” continues to propagandize and mislead the people about the intent of restructuring, a great newspaper reporter, Robert Holland with Richmond Times Dispatch continues to expose this one-world travesty to his readers. He sent Secretary of Education, Richard Riley a memo regarding the Community Action Kit.

Holland quoted the kit as saying: “Only by changing the attitudes and behavior of community members will it be possible to reach the National Education Goals.”….isn’t such a government directed propaganda campaign unprecedented in America’s history?” Mr. Holland quotes some of the topics in the kit which tells how to identify “Allies and Opponents: avoid the term Outcome-Based Education; Choosing a Facilitator” all designed to lead to group-think or conformity. (Ed. Note: The tool used is known as the Delphi technique; the facilitator insures everyone in the group that a consensus has been reached, and none dare question the “group”. The opposition is silenced, if there is any, through lies, smears, labeled conspiracy kooks and you name it. I always advise citizens to never join a group with a facilitator. Several years ago, I attended an Arizona Senate Education hearing, and my district Senator chaired the meeting and in his opening statement said: “We are here to reach a consensus.” I sat in the front row and taped the hearing, and he said to me: “Ann, you are not taping this are you?” and I replied: “Yes, and taking good notes in case my battery runs out”.

I was a precinct captain in our district and helped to get this man elected. Since when in a democratic society, do people have to reach a consensus? So, tape their hearing if you can get in; many appointed groups are closed to the public or the legislators shift the hearing around until one is unable to follow the time and place. Another old trick is to change or postpone the hearing at the last minute, or never call the opposition to testify, even if one signs up. In Arizona the Legislators have devised a sneaky way of slipping an opposed bill under the door. They “strike-all” from a worthless bill, and then attached the opposed legislation to it. Representative government and dishonesty becomes questionable under such tactics).

Apparently the United States views the citizens as tools to be manipulated in order to implement the prearranged United Nations plan. Included in a packet of materials I received from a concerned citizen was a statement from Minnesota to Mr. Holland. It reads:

“I am appalled that my government is running propaganda campaigns among the citizenry reminiscent of Chairman Mao’s many political campaigns in Communist China.”

This comes as no surprise to the author who has been researching and following educational restructuring for twenty-five years. The Education for All “Today”, Issue 2, Jan. – March, 1993 in its Innovation Corner is titled “Overcoming Resistance and Facilitating Change: The NTL Institute’s Approach.”

The National Training Laboratory Institute (NTL) was affiliated with the National Education Association (NEA) from 1947 to 1967. The purpose is stated in this newsletter as follows:

“Dedicated to developing and applying scientific methods to behavior modification, the Institute facilitates productive change at the individual, social, organizational and macro-system levels.”

The Institute has facilitated change with all elements of society throughout the world: clergy, business, labor, legislators, Governors, Congress, school administrators and teachers etc. Apparently, they have been successful with the masses. Only a few resistors remain, especially since the “conservative right-wing” political and religious leaders have convinced their membership that Choice and Charter Schools will eliminate NEA and government control of schools. This is a lie! One only has to read the Federal and States Educational Restructuring Plans for confirmation of this fact. Private and public schools including home schools will be chartered and controlled with government money. (Ed. Note: Vouchers are the carrot and stick being used for naïve private, religious and home schools across the USA. The citizens public schools are being taken over by private groups, foundations, foreign persons, and are being are run for profit one way or another, either through management companies, computer companies or nepotism).

Local school boards are being replaced or stripped of power. Representative government is becoming obsolete. Appointed councils now are taking the place of elected representatives in all endeavors across the USA. “No Child Will Be Left Behind”. All children are to be trained for the global one-world planned workforce using the scientific method of behavioral psychology now attached to computer software. Citizen owned property is now being sold and some leased back. The current governor sold our State Capitol, House and Senate buildings to a private group. Unless we pay off the loan in twenty years, the private investment company will own the citizens property. We are now leasing this property back that was completely debt free. I could find nothing in our Constitution that allows this. The same people are working hard to privatize public schools).

The radical right and the radical left have met in mid-center on restructuring education along with NAFTA, The Crime Bill, and last but not least we can expect to see the finalization of the plan through GATT (World Trade Organization). Who are they? (Now in place).

A meeting was held at Arizona State University, Saturday, October 22, 1994 and a “Charter School Chronicle Resource List” was handed out to the participants. This paper lists both right-wing and left-wing political groups who are supporting Charter School. For example: the American Federation of Teachers (AFT); The National Education Association (NEA); Education Commission of the States (the ECS formed Regional Government and placed each state in a Federal Educational Laboratory); The Heritage Foundation: National Association of Charter Schools, Inc.; The Morrison Institute (on NASDC Design teams); Office of Senator Dave Durenberger; National Council of State Legislatures; Hudson Institute (NASDC’s Modern Red Schoolhouse with William Bennett (former Secretary of USDOE); Chester Finn, Jr. who is with the Edison Project and runs Charter schools for profit…now with the Fordham Institute who cranks out propaganda in support of privatizing public education ( Finn was formerly with USDOE); National Governors’ Association and others. (Ed. Note: Now the privateers, computer companies and vested interest hope to fire competent teachers and replace them with unproven computer software. This will be done through performance-based evaluations tied to student outcomes that have been manipulated for years to serve the vested interest of a few. The leadership of the two major teacher unions AFT and NEA has sold out to the enemies of the teachers and our most precious heritage, our children. While the leadership gives lip service to the hard-working teachers, taking their money through dues, our good, highest qualified teachers are being fired or put in holding-rooms and replaced with Teach For America non-qualified teachers – one can assume to plug the children into the computer).

During her teaching career, Ann taught all grade levels, (K-College in reading) as well as all ability level students including gifted, and non-English speaking. In 1982, she was the Republican candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction for Arizona; ran again in 1986, the primary purpose was to expose the experimental programs being used on teachers and children, especially ECRI (Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction) and others. She pushed for a Congressional investigation on ECRI and other programs, but it never happened. People contacted her regarding ECRI and the harmful effects on children who were having difficult problems due to the stress from ECRI. All of this went to Congress and the DOE. The DOE lied about the method and denied that children were timed with stopwatches even after Ann sent them documented pod materials from their manuals. A large effort has been made to cover up ECRI and other similar programs destroying our children.

Ann’s education research articles have been published in the Wisconsin Report, Charlotte Iserbyt’s books; The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, and Back to Basics Reform, the Barbara Morris Report, and countless newspapers and magazines. She also contributed data to Rev. James Patrick’s “Research Manual, America 2000/Goals 2000 – Moving the Nation Educationally to a ‘New World Order’.”

At the request of concerned parents, Ann spoke in several states against America and Goals 2000 and helped organize the Southwestern USA to work against the Soviet/Carnegie/American agreement… through the “National Citizen’s Alliance.” She is a member of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution with eight proven Revolutionary Patriots, one of whom served at Valley Forge with Gen. Geo. Washington. Ann continues to do research exposing the destruction of our once excellent academic education.
