On October 8, 2013 I posted an article titled “Federal Government Backdoor Takeover of Education”. I told parents about how school boards around America needed to take a serious look at what the Federal government is imposing on them and their children!
In 2012 the government came up with the National Sexuality Education Standards (NSES) and still today parents have no idea these exist. To make it look like Arne Duncan and Obama had nothing to do with it, they were put through and written by The American Association of Health Education (www. aahperd.org/aahe); The Future of Sex Education (FoSE) Initiative (www.futureofsexed.org.); The American School Health Association (www.ashaweb. org); The National Education Association – Health Information Network (www.neahin.org) and The Society of State Leaders of Health and Physical Education (www.thesociety.org).
Kathleen Sebelius was at the time Secretary of Health and Human Services and totally supported everything Obama put forth including this and FERPA. She is also pro abortion and Planned Parenthood. Even being a mother, this woman like so many liberals has no problem causing damage to other children.
On page six, they announce: The National Sexuality Education Standards were further informed by the work of the CDC’s Health Education Curriculum Analysis Tool (HECAT); existing state and international education standards that include sexual health content; the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education: Kindergarten – 12th Grade4; and the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics5, recently adopted by most states.
To remind parents, these standards start with our Kindergaten children now and each state has created their own set of Pre-K ‘Operating Guidelines” and since the big push is for the Pre-K “schools and nursuries” to take children with federal dollars, there is even more control of your children at this early age.
National Health Services (NHS) boards are also jumping on the bandwagon calling for new sex-ed curriculum to cover in depth gay marriages and the changes of transgender and they are objecting to provisions allowing parents to opt their children out of the classes.
It would do well for parents to be sure they know and understand exactly what is being taught to their children in regard to sex, life styles and everything that pertains to them for the hours they spend at their schools. Slipping in “eye scans” and other tricky manuvers to track and manipulate our children are common place today.
Reminding parents it was the Bill Gates Foundation, Carnegie Foundation and Fox News Robert Murdoch who put up the $100 million to create the “nonprofit” IBloom database which was to allow schools and testing companies to share information they were to collect on individual students from their attendance records, to include parent’s names through to the test score results.
Fortunately in the Spring of 2014, IBloom was dumped because of all the sustained protests by parents and privacy advocacy groups concerns.
Through legislation of individual states “in the name of innovation” the data would also be made available to for-profit companies (PPP’s) seeking to peddle a variety of educational products and services to school districts. In return for this the legislators received campaign donations from various for-profit companies.
Did you notice how the past and present governor’s who were running for president all had changed their mind’s in regard to the Common Core now standing against it – all accept Ohio’s governor Kasich who strongly supports the CCSS, but he also has a state full of Charter school scandals.
Even the National PTA received over $1 million to support the Common Core.
Where has all the money been coming from? Let’s see – we had George Soros, Bill Gates Foundations, Jeb Bush’s 2 Foundations , Walmart Foundation and former governor Mike Huckabee embracing the CC by money, verbal support, ads or all mentioned. There are plenty more but these individuals have an agenda of their own. You would think that this group would be strange bedfellows, but in fact they are nothing but corporate elitists looking to push along the New World Order of which Education is supposed to play the largest role in the “dumbing down and controlling of our children”.
Even the Islamists put a great deal more than just their “two cents” into this game with them being the third-largest shareholder in Pearson who has their fingers on the publishing of the textbooks along with coming up with standards.
You might also want to check in your state to see how much if any Soros money is funding your children’s education. It 2011 was revealed that Bill Gates and Soros money along with the Koch Brothers have their money in the Education pot! Link Link Link Link
The education non-profit Teach for America (TFA)has been under increasing fire recently as critics and alumni accuse the organization of misappropriating their original mission by backing the policies of the “corporate education agenda” that promote privatization, the expansion of charter schools and the undermining of teachers unions.
In 2013, criticism reached a higher note when the news broke that Wal-Mart owners, the Walton Family—key backers of charter school expansion and the effort to end teacher protections—donated $20 million to the nonprofit TFA for “recruitment, training and professional development,” bringing their total support for TFA to over $100 million since 1993.
“The Walton Family Foundation’s support for Teach for America is driven by the organization’s proven ability to create a pipeline of outstanding education reform leaders,”said Ed Kirby, deputy director of the Walton Family Foundation’s K-12 Education Reform effort, in a statement released last week.
Unfortunately, Mr. Kirby is not bothering to speak to all the previous young men and women who have taught through Teach for America – they do not support TFA unless they have been given a high paying position within the company.
Florida gained a new State School Board member 2 years ago who claimed she was a “life-long”professional teacher. The truth is she graduated from the “progressive” Bank Street College of Edu. for her Maasters 04-06 and during the same time was working for TFA and then took a high paying job from them to run their office in Miami as their Program Director. Some Educator!
The 2015 ESSA is presenting to parents the introduction of Community Education. That’s where the “community” as a whole has a say about the education of your child – your opinion no longer counts.
If the school as an agency of society is to justify itself for the period ahead of us, it must be accepted that its fundamental function is to serve the people of the entire community, the very young children, the children of middle years, early adolescent youth, older youth and the adults as well.
Concerned Americans should read Dorothy Dawson’s articles published in 1968 in The Montgomery County (MD) The Advertiser (see pages 31 and 38 in Charlotte Iserbyt’s book the deliberate dumbing down of america). Her articles include the 1946 totalitarian womb to-tomb community school plan for Americans which I think is the early UN Agenda 21; new name/same agenda).
Backdoor moves by the Obama Administration have become the “way of the land” The changes in the FERPA laws ,rather than going through congress, were done by making the Data Mining of your children’s information a mandate to be implemented through the Department of Labor.
You see Obama just calls the heads of these departments to his office and “mandates” what he wants done. They change the rules and we have “allowed” this to happen by not holding Congress accountable for not reigning in Obama. Instead Congress just sits back and smiles and writes the checks with our money.
Every state in our country should follow Louisiana in regard to this law that was passed. IF YOU WANT TO GET LEGISLATION SIMILAR TO THE LOUISIANA BILL PASSED IN YOUR STATE, CONTACT: ANGELA ALEF (email@example.com)
The People LLC, a very effective, “faceless” grassroots organization in Louisiana, had a huge victory a while back regarding opt-out”.
Angela Alef of The People, LLC stated, “The other thing that keeps getting overlooked in the law and this is the last thing that I’ll bring up and I appreciate your patience, is that it doesn’t say children can’t be asked these questions unless there’s an opt-in or an opt-out. It doesn’t say they can be asked these questions only if it’s presented voluntarily. It says they can’t be asked these questions; and, anyone who wants this information from children has to go speak to their parent and get it from the parent if the parent chooses to voluntarily disclose it.
I didn’t pass that legislation–you guys did. And we were very, extremely proud of the stance Louisiana took. And we have always said at The People, LLC that Louisiana is the state who can lead the other states out of the mess that this country’s in. And, I believe you guys led when you passed the Student Data Privacy Act, which is, despite the changes made last session, it still is the strongest student data privacy law in the nation—well-surpassing any protections that FERPA used to or currently provides.”
Remember it is “We the People” who have to gain the control back in regard to our children’s education, morals, values and every other aspect of their lives – it is not the place of the Federal government.
