America, Here Comes Your National Citizen Control –

Data MiningPaul Ryan and the other legislators should be recalled by their states for their involvement in this.

AMERICA – it is time to watch these bills that are going to affect our children’s lives from the date they are passed until the day they die.

Do you, America’s Parents, remember the DATA MINING of your children through every action they take – not just education which is bad enough.

Now we are not only back at ruining our children’s future privacy, but we are sleeping with the Democrats. Why is it the only time the two parties sleep together is when the legislation is absolutely no good for this country and someone like Gates or Walmart Foundation is there with plenty of cash?

There are 3 bills about to ruin any and all privacy of our lives – especially those of our children in the near future. We will take these one at a time.

The Student Privacy Protection Act (H.R. 3157), was introduced July 2015 and has been sitting in the House Committee on Education and the Workforce ever since.

What are they waiting for – the bill should actually be dead by now.

Reminding you that Bill Gates is all for Data Mining (tracking our children) and he is willing to invest another $1.7 million to be spent entirely on student data collection. This Communist and he is has done everything he can think of to help ensure this country is destroyed. He is like a crack addict looking for his next fix.

DQCAdded to the mix is Professor Polikoff, supposedly an educator and researcher who helped to get Common Core in place has been funded also by Gates and is aligned with the Data Quality Campaign (DQC) which also got money from Gates to the tune of $19 MILLION.

Look what the DQC sent to Congressman Rokita.

The language is rather touchy-feely until you do your research and find:

  • There is no protection for the students and families harmed by the misconduct of researchers or corporations.
  • There is no mention of the various ways for data collection on our children, including the “social-emotional learning” (SEL) which were expanded in the last ESSA bill.
  • “Legitimate educational interests” is not explained and leaves the door wide open to any Tom, Dick or Harry corporation or individual to gather what they want and use it any way they want.

Adding insult to injury people like Polikoff and the DQC have their poison too:

  • They want the data collection to extend to after-school programs and tutoring
  • They are resisting any new privacy protections or restrictions such as parental consent – all they want is “taxpayer” money to spend
  • They want all limitations in regard to researchers to be removed allowing them to use any and all data pertaining to the student’s and their family “without consent”.
  • Keeping in mind that what they are currently doing is against the law, they want to tap into college records and those created through their workforce data also – they want to know if all the plans they have had for taking over this country are working or if they need to change how they manipulate the American people and the legislators with $$.

AMERICA – do you trust Democrat Paul Ryan? If you do, you are not Conservative or a true Republican.

Following H.R. 3157 in a blaze of smoke is the College Transparency Act (H.R. 2434/S1121). This is a bill where we have just been blindsided by Trey Gowdy as he is a co-signer as well as Farenthold (R-TX) and Kilmer (D-WA).

These bills are designed to weaken federal student-privacy protections and enable lifetime government surveillance and tracking of American citizens. Tracking the college students of any age will make all the information regarding their majors and subsequent earnings be an open book for the world.

Never forget, if corporations and people like Gates can gain access to all this information, so can people from around the world. This tracking is intended to follow them through the rest of their lifetime.

H.R. 2434 would overturn the Higher Education Act’s ban on a federal student unit-record system and establish a system of lifelong tracking of individuals by the federal government. Is this not Communism?

“Transparency” is the new excuse for creating Orwellian tracking and surveillance systems. The federal government first takes over a function for which it has no constitutional authority – such as student loans – and then claims it must gather almost unlimited data on the citizens affected by that program to see how it’s working. The College Transparency Act (CTA) operates in this mold and must be rejected.

Again, no consent from the student and do you AMERICA understand they are opening up a very dangerous precedent for every American living in a supposed free society. Only those creating this monster will have the ability to protect their information.

Last but certainly not least is H.R.4174/S 2046 – Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2017 which states it is a bill to amend titles 5 and 44, United States Code, to require Federal evaluation activities, improve Federal data management, and for other purposes.

In the process of compiling my “Timeline of the Destruction of America Through Education” I came across this:

The year is 1829 – Now we are presented with the “godless” “Working Man’s Party”. Organizers state, “The great object is to get rid of Christianity, and to convert our churches into lulls of science. The plan was not to make open attacks upon religion, but schools, from which all religion was to be eluded, in which nothing was to be taught but such knowledge as is verifiable by the sense, and to which all parents were to be compelled by law to send their children. Our complete plan was to take the children from their parents at the age of twelve or eighteen months, and to have than nursed, fed, clothed, and trained in three schools at the public expense; (my, my, Senator Lamar Alexander who would have thought you got your ideas regarding the caring and education of our children from a Communist Party ideology) but at any rate, we were to have godless schools to make godless children all over the country. The plan has been successfully pursued and the whole action of the country on the subject has taken the direction we ought to give it.” It certainly has!

Why didn’t it make you angry when they started referring to your children as “human capital”?

Bottom Line – H.R. 4174 would create a “unified evidence-building plan” for the entire federal government – in essence, a national database containing data from every federal agency on every citizen.

In 1974 the Feds gave us the “Cooperative Accountability Project” which outlined societal outputs while monitoring all aspects of the inputs in life, womb to tomb. This was all aligned to ascertain what the future GLOBAL citizens would be like and what they would be “WORTH”. No longer seen as an individual, but as a monetary commodity to be bartered and sold on an open market. What did you think the New World Order working status would be – since the basis is Communism?

Their national ID will be weighted by their plus and minuses gathered from the data mining. Evidence-based according to these people is based on the total quality management for their planned economy – not yours – theirs!

Ryan’s contribution into the ruination of our children will begin with HIPAA being removed and blending together health, education, labor, finances, and immigration.

FERPAThe real purpose of the data collection is for the Gates, Ayers and Polikoff’s of the world to be able to access who everyone is – intelligence, health, psychiatric, emotional make-up and streamline them into Global Citizens.

I guess we should be thankful they aren’t doing this as Obummer did through his Executive Order when he weakened FERPA by having the Department of Labor take care of the changes as a regulation directed at Workforce – thank Bill Clinton – NOT!

H.R. 3157 will make Obummer’s EO law! Look at this –

So just how many of our elected in Congress are now truly Socialists or full-fledged Communists? They cannot be red-blooded Americans and be passing this legislation and treating our children as a commodity.

Time to step up America and call your Congressman/Woman and all the rest too and remind them you are no longer asleep, but watching their every move. Remind them REPEAL and REMOVE in 2018 is very important to you and you are sick and tired of them pulling your country into the sewer of debt and humiliation.

Call Washington 202-224-3121 – check to see if your legislator is serving on the House Education and Workforce Committee https://edworkforce.house.gov/…/subcommitteesjurisdictions

Email this to your friends – heck even your enemies especially if they have children. Add it to your websites, attach links to this information on your e-mails. Let Congress know that you are awake and watching – now is the time for action. Call every day!

“Their” ideas for this country is that America should be sent to “Hell in a Handbasket” and they figured out a long time ago it could be done through the education system.

Remember:  This ruination of our country by way of our children must be important if it has been going on since the middle 1700’s and most of the fraud and corruption in our government is within the educational system. A look at the Charter schools tells a big story. Look what we got for an Education Secretary – a Dominionist who has her own agenda and I voted for Trump.

And yet they can’t get rid of Obamacare – is that because they don’t want to? And just where is our wall? Congress too focused on the things that hurt us rather than what is good for the country as a whole?

Please help us to protect our children.

Why Are Our Children Dying Under For-Profit Foster Care?

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 Tim 3:1-5 KJV

IF EVEN ONE CHILD DIES IT IS TOO MANY – BUT 86???

Adopting out for moneyI continually ask myself how much EVIL the ADULTS of this country can put upon our children. You have willy-nilly sex for self-satisfaction, not caring what the circumstances could be or take any responsibility for your actions. You use drugs as a touchy, feely, I know what I am doing thing and then you haven’t the decency to take care of the children you produce.

Then there are those on the other side commonly referred to as Corporate America or Public-Private Partnerships involving themselves in our children’s lives for nothing more than money and their corporate bottom line – looking at every aspect of their lives to make a profit!

MENTOR, America’s largest For-Profit Foster Care Firm has just been investigated by the US Senate Finance Committee. It has to have gotten pretty bad for the Feds to start paying attention.

Headed by Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), they recently released their bipartisan report dealing with the mistreatment of our countries most vulnerable children, those in foster care. Because of this report, we are once again given another bill called the Child Welfare oversight and Accountability Act of 2017 (S.1964). Why do we need legislation to make sure that our children are well taken care of and not mistreated, even murdered?

Have some of us totally lost all common decency and human compassion? It appears so and like with so many other things, MONEY is at the head of the table.

Launched two years ago following inquiries to all 50 of our state governors and only 33 of them responding in response to complaints regarding the private foster care system across the country. Why these governors could not take care of the problem in their own states is still a mystery.

“The lack of oversight of the nation’s child welfare system, at both the state and federal level, is unacceptable. The Child Welfare Oversight and Accountability Act, which I introduced today with Ranking Member Wyden (D-Oregon), would help to ensure better government oversight and protect children in foster care in Utah and across the country.”

A recent bout of national media attention concerning questionable behavior by private for-profit agencies, with abuse and neglect by foster parents working for those providers, and in some instances, abuse and neglect which caused children’s deaths, led the Finance Committee to investigate this issue. As the Finance Committee has primary jurisdiction over Federal child welfare and foster care funding and policy (largely through the Social Security Act), the Committee launched an investigation in April 2015 to examine the privatization of foster care services.

mENTOROne specific private company, The MENTOR Network – one of the largest for-profit providers of foster care services in the United States – voluntarily provided data and analysis that showed that over a 10-year period, approximately 70 percent of children’s deaths were unexpected.

This is why I am opposed to any and all private companies who are allowed to take over any type of services when their bottom line is PROFIT at the expense of others.

Can you imagine this country has gone so far out of control into an “It’s all about me attitude”, that in 2015, 671,000 children in this the greatest country in the world were in out of the home Foster Care Services and basically treated like raw meat?

Information which was received from the MENTOR Network specifically reviewed incident reports about the deaths of children in the company’s care, an internal morality report, legal settlements, case notes, foster parent applications and other documents.

The Committee concluded that children who were under the legal authority and care of their individual states and who were receiving services from private, for-profit agencies and being paid for those services had been abused, neglected, denied services – some even died.

In Mentor’s case, investigations into fatalities were never investigated and followed-up on; autopsy reports were left pending for YEARS, excluded from files and the majority of the children who died were never the subject of internal investigations – even when their deaths were unexpected.

Adding insult to injury, families of these children and victims of other inadequate care had received compensation in financial settlements in the millions of dollars.

As the need for private for-profit and non-profit providers of foster care services had grown, oversight of these entities by State agencies as well as Federal oversight of the States has been, inadequate.

This Link will take you to the letter sent from Senator Hatch to the Mentor Network.

As far back as 2004, on a dirt road in rural Maryland’s eastern shore, a 15-year-old boy was being dropped off at the Last Chance Farm where four couples lived, all related to each other and all NOT being paid or supervised by the government, but a giant corporation named the National Mentor Holdings, which over the previous three decades had turned their guardianship of foster children into a gigantic CASH COW! At any given time, they had an average of over 3,800 children and teenagers in foster homes in over 15 states around the country.

What came next for the 15-year-old was sexual abuse which continued even after he reported it to the caseworker – she felt her job with the company was more important than the welfare of the boy. It wasn’t until 2011, that the police descended on the Last Chance Farm. Extreme case? Not if you take the time to research.

CHILDRENIn Georgia, former State Senator Nancy Schaefer exposed the Georgia ‘Child Protective Services” (CPS)for Child Abuse and the Human Trafficking the Foster Children flowing through their care. Link In GA at the time, CPS would receive a bonus every time they removed a child from their home. Her article “The Corrupt Business of Child Protective Services” can be found here.

In 2016, an article was presented entitled “The U.S. Foster Care System:  Modern Day Slavery and Child Trafficking”. Never ever believe there isn’t a great deal of money to be made in Trafficking.

Foster care is seen as an “industry” – a business where children become a commodity that profits doctors, lawyers, judges, social workers, advocates, and other organizations, an industry that can only exist by taking other people’s children, an industry that damages the very children it purports to be helping. The trauma inflicted on children by the foster care industry is inexcusable.

Molly McGrath Tierney, the former Director of the Baltimore City Department of Social Services stated, “we’re digging a wound so deep, I don’t believe we have a way of measuring it. This dismantling of families – it has enormous consequences. Kids that grow up outside of families – they don’t master the things that can only be learned in that context, like who to trust, how to love, and how to take care of yourself, and that frankly does more damage than the abuse and neglect that brought the kid to my attention in the first place”.  LINK

Legislators and government agencies will tell you Foster Care is “Best for the Child”, but what kind of best are you removing them to?  The dismantling of families rather than trying to heal from within is digging a wound so deep, that in most cases it can never be repaired.

Know that in many cases accepting foster care as “best for the child” is, in fact, a “financial decision” and what is best for the state and corporate America and unfortunately some of the workers within the system.

How many of America’s children are in Foster care – as of the year 2014 – 415,000 have been ripped away from their families to be entrusted to an industry that only looks at their “profit line” and not the child itself.

In 2015, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) has demanded a response from the Obama administration to whistleblower claims that thousands of those children have been released to sponsors with criminal records that include homicide, child molestation, and human trafficking. Legal advocates for the children say many have wound up in abusive situations, where they- have been forced to work to repay debts or living expenses. Some children simply stop showing up for immigration hearings and vanish.

Do you think Grassley got one? I can’t find any notation that Obama released anything to Grassley, but according to Grassley, at least 3,400 children had been placed where the sponsors had criminal records. Does it matter if “proper screening” is taking place when they ignore the results of the reports?

Lydia Joyner at 18 had lived in 35 different homes and had 18 different social workers. Adding to the stripping of who she was, her name was changed 4 times and at 18, the doors open wide and you are thrown out into the world to survive.

Do you believe Pizzagate is made up or a figment of someone’s imagination? Human Trafficking and Pedophilia has been a major business in the entire world increasing dynamically since the 1980’s – be it for pleasure or business profit. Pictures of children are sold to the buyer to then pick the kind of child they want and in many cases, government workers and/or state offices are receiving payouts for their leads and help. In relation to foster care, in 2017 the current reimbursement to state and local government agencies for each child taken into foster care is $6K a month, yet the foster care parent receives about one 10th of that.

Because of a directive under then-President Clinton, HHS was directed to develop an internet site to “link children in foster care with adoptive families” so we will be able to window shop for children on a government website. If you don’t find anything you like there, you can surf on over to the ‘Adopt Shoppe.’ Link

Obama while president saw fit to make changes within the Dept. of HHS especially in the earmark process which rewarded programs politically – focused more on “connections” than “successful programs”. Political supporters were given “Pay-for-Success” (PFS) grants with little or no oversight.

The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) received a grant of $1 million to assess the feasibility of asthma-related PFS projects benefitting low-income children. Harvard Kennedy School Social Impact Bond Lab received its $1.93 million grant to provide technical assistance to ten local and state governments to build their capacity to pursue PFS projects. And there are many more. Do you think just maybe all this money would have been better spent protecting and saving the lives of our children?

What it is, is a form of using our children, especially low-income children as guinea pigs.

We have come no further than the practice between 1854 and 1929 of moving orphan children by train (Orphan Trains) across the country and even into Canada into what America was told were “worthy” families of good reputation.  LINK

Although these children then as today, were supposed to be “treated in their new homes as family members”, more often than not most of these children ended up as indentured servants. Some families were even allowed to “PRE-ORDER the children they wanted with certain traits like “blonde hair and blue eyes”. Does this bring memories to your mind?

Sad but true, studies have shown that the Orphan Train children were treated better than Foster kids of today.

Alexandria HillTake little Alexandria Hill – Mentor was also her “Foster Care Provider” and got paid well for finding a “caregiver” for her. Small, blonde, innocent 2-year-old Alexandria was brutally murdered by her foster mother on a hot July evening in Texas in 2013 by swinging her until her head crushed into the floor. Her foster mother Smalls, claimed it was an accident.

Alexandria’s father, Joshua, sitting in the hospital waiting room anguished had an official from the State of Texas show up and the father asked what he should do. The official with his caring NOT, replied, ” “She’s in your custody now. That’s up to you.” The parents agreed to take the little girl off life support, and Alexandria was declared dead on July 31.

DEAD – now she was given back into the custody of her parents!

How did Mentor approve this household when the husband was a known crack user, flaws in the background information, but Mentor never did a recent background check? If they’d asked for one, they would have learned that Sherill Small had been convicted in 2002 of aggravated kidnapping and robbery after she and an accomplice in the kidnapping of a pregnant convenience store clerk in 2000. If ask, her sisters would have told Mentor about Sherill willingly.

Why was she taken from her parents?  A caseworker wrote that the parents smoked marijuana and that the mother periodically had grand mal seizures.

My question to Senator’s Hatch and Grassley – JUST WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT THIS OTHER THAN WRITE MORE REGULATIONS OF WHICH ARE NOT FOLLOWED OR MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE?

Mathematics – The New Social Justice!

Sorry, I haven’t posted here in a couple of months – Fall is such an interesting and driving time. Family in my house always comes first and we have had our share of “family affairs” since August, but all is good. Better than in our schools which have slid off the mountain tops into “social justice” so far I am afraid we will never find our way out.

I started posting about how they are using the different subjects taught t our children to push social justice and now the big one is in how they are manipulating Math to address the subject.

Learning by the Bible to do good, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause and help your fellow man is NOT Social Justice, but being a decent Human Being!

Unless we as a whole stand up and say, “NO MORE – GET YOUR HANDS AND IDEAS AWAY FROM OUR CHILDREN AND JUST TEACH THEM” – nothing is going to change. It isn’t going to change because they don’t care about our kids – and theirs go to private schools.

Since most of our legislators have discovered a way to make a lot of money from owning Charter schools and aligning up with multi corporations, I wonder how much they are going to make endorsing and passing legislation regarding vouchers.

I first started researching education when Obama’s take-over ideas began to leak out even before he was elected. Make note parents, George H. Bush was no friend of our children any more than Bill Clinton, the other snake Bushes, Bill Ayers, Lamar Alexander, Rothschilds, Rockefeller’s and the Soros clan.

All of you parents whose children are in the IB Program – are you aware that is a UN/UNESCO curriculum that is Marxist/socialist and in a very subtle way, and costs your schools millions in the long run and the worst of all, it is proprietary and must be accepted for what it teaches – nothing can be changed and textbooks come from them. It does not have to conform to our education curriculum.

One of the first things that really rocked me was in how our children were to learn math and the fact that it didn’t matter if the answers were correct or not, but how they had obtained their answers. So, what I had heard was true, 2+2 = 4 was not the only answer a person could have for this equation; 1+2 could equal 4, 5+4 could equal 4 – it was all ok, just the way you worked the problems and came to your answer was important.

ReThinking MathematicsThis seemed stupid to me so I went researching. The first book I found was “Rethinking Mathematics” by Eric Gutstein, a professor of Mathematics at the Univ. of Illinois in Chicago.

I wasn’t surprised as to where he came from having already researched the damage Arnie Duncan had done to the Chicago schools before Obama was elected.

This book uses Gutstein’s interpretation of social injustices mostly in America and enjoins that to Mathematical Q & A. It reads almost as if he had taken the writings from within the Earth Charter and converted it to Math.

“In this new expanded and updated edition of Rethinking Mathematics, more than 50 articles show how to weave social justice issues throughout the mathematics curriculum, as well as how to integrate mathematics into other curricular areas.”

Rethinking Mathematics” offers teaching ideas, lesson plans, and reflections by practitioners and mathematics educators. This is real-world math – math that helps students analyze social problems as they gain essential academic skills.”

“This book offers hope and guidance for teachers to enliven and strengthen their math teaching. It will deepen students understanding of society and help prepare them to be critical, active participants in a democracy. Blending theory and practice, this is the only resource of its kind.”  (Thank God).

Teaching Mathematics for Social JusticeUnfortunately, it is NOT the only one of its kind. Take “Teaching Mathematics for Social Justice” by David Stinson. The author says “Educators increasingly recognize the important role that mathematics teaching plays in helping students to understand and overcome social injustice and inequality. This collection of original articles is the start of a compelling conversation among some of the leading figures in critical and social justice mathematics, a number of teachers and educators who have been inspired by them and who have inspiring stories of their own to tell and any reader interested in the intersection of education and social justice. An important read for every educator, this book shows how to teach mathematics so that all students are given the tools they need to confront issues of social justice today and in the future.”

This is another wake-up call as to who is teaching your kids. The educators can know all about our families, but we aren’t supposed to know anything about the person that spends the most time with our children.

Something is very wrong with this picture! Especially since the really good teachers have left teaching and have been replaced by Teach for America teachers who in most cases graduated NOT having a degree in Education and non-certified teachers are being allowed to teach. Check with your local school boards on certification laws.

Both books imply we have been racist in the teaching of math. Since when did one half of the classroom learn from one Math book and the other half a different book?

The spoken and unspoken belief about black students is tied to broader perceptions about black people. So, let’s just say it: Some believe the gap is a function of weak family and community structures, male joblessness, drug use, and permissive cultural values—which they assert predominate in the black community.

What is your “social rational” for the white boys out on the streets selling the dope, beating up women, and causing riots?

Others believe that blacks constitute a community that is largely beyond intervention and that no amount of funding or special programs can fix what ails the perpetually troubled. If this is true liberal democrats, then why is it every education bill you pass is directed at low-income areas?

Is it because the whitey’s that think so much of themselves continually try to drum this nonsense into the black children of this country. You continually tell them they will never amount to anything, don’t even try to get into college and the good one – you will never get a job of any meaning to be able to support a family.

Then these evil men and women like to say that any black child who has asserted themselves to be able to go to college then what they have done is outsmart the stereotype which has been set up and they refer to them as “outliers” – something or someone that lies outside the main body or group that it is a part of, as a cow far from the rest of the herd, or maybe a black or Hispanic child saying, “you are all are wrong, I will succeed”.

These erroneous and insulting beliefs persist out there because they are repeated by a constant recitation of negative statistics about blacks and now also Hispanics in the research literature and unrelenting circulated news accounts. Such wrong and deceitful assertions negate accurate and meaningful portrayals of black and Hispanic people. Mostly, they are misdirecting education and social policy and have skewed funding priorities in education by their constant legislation aimed at “low-income” families.

Regrettably, Americans have been socialized by the scholarly and journalism communities to accept at face value negative data and false information about blacks and been trained to also believe their colored students will “never make anything of themselves”.

Now the new thing is to be sure that middle and high school teachers learn how to incorporate social justice items such as racism and chosen privilege into their classrooms. Who is making the decisions as to what is to be considered “social justice”?

To what end? Here again, they have chosen a “subject” to cause “race baiting” causing hate and discontent.

Many of us who are researching and complaining about how education has been “handled” for the past 10 years (it has been longer but has intensified in the past 10 years through the UN and their wacky “social justice” they apply to whatever as the need arises) understand what is behind this ugly race-baiting.

We have been aware of the teaching of those who sign on to “Teach for America” and they along with edX have now designed a course they have called “Teaching Social Justice Through Secondary Mathematics” is being pushed through a 6-week course for MIDDLE SCHOOL teachers and you can even take online courses from top universities like Columbia. The course intent is to incorporate social justice into their curricula.

According to the course developers, regular math is “too abstract” for many students, and incorporating social justice can help them better understand “the power and meaning” of math.

Pinging directly to the Math classes the question posed is “Do you ask students to think deeply about global and local social justice issues within your mathematics classroom?”

edX is a massive open online course provider. It hosts online university-level courses in a wide range of disciplines to a worldwide student body and it was created by MIT and Harvard University.

Part of the problem I see here is the fact edX states they are ” founded by and continue to be governed by colleges and universities. We are the only leading MOOC provider that is both nonprofit and open source. This is one of the big problems since most universities and colleges today are very liberal and have no time for our students when they object to their bias.

The point is they are supposed to blend their math instruction with topics such as poverty, privilege, and inequity to “transform students into GLOBAL THINKERS & MATHEMATICIANS”.

Does this mean knowing and understanding Math alone will not make you a great Mathematician, and you also must believe in “sustainable development and climate change”?

This is Soviet/Nazi type education – brainwashing at its worst. You see the true meaning of “sustainable development” is to get rid of capitalism, we need mathematicians who are supporting the one to achieve the other.

These manipulating, conniving liars will tell you that Math is evil because there is no ethics behind it. This is definitely a form of dehumanizing our children so that population control will not bother them; it will change their outlook on abortion; teach them there are different classes of genocide and sometimes it is a good thing – needed.

A recent article by D. Susan Berry “Common Core Rooted in Math Social Indoctrination” states, “While proponents of the Common Core claim that the new standards are focused on “college and career readiness,” more evidence is surfacing that a central purpose of the initiative is social justice and income redistribution indoctrination.

I agree, and as I stated in my 2 previous postings regarding the G20, Link, Link, the UN and all their supporters who believe they will someday rule the world, know their focus must be in indoctrinating our children to not only believe in “sustainable development”, but support it without question.

That is why they are now working at pushing these climate and social justice lies so hard because time is short and they keep changing their mindset as to what is going to work. Fortunately, enough of us are awake and more are seeing what is happening, their job is getting harder.

We have socialist, Marxist-Communists surrounding our children like Bill Ayers, Linda-Darling Hammond, Bill Gates, Bushes – more and more – coming up with more ideas all the time.

Radical Math” boasts over 700 lesson plans, articles, charts, books, and websites that cover a wide range of socio-political issues including redistribution of wealth, discrimination against the poor by whites and the message that widespread racism against blacks continues in the United States today.

Sorry liberals and UN baiters, most Americans got past your race baiting years ago. We have learned to look at the person not the color of his skin. The next thing to come out will be the use of Math and other subjects as the basis for our distrust of Muslims.

For me, I read their Quŕan to understand where they are coming from!

Social Justice is what “they” are using to say capitalism has created the poor and inequality of the world. Those two items have been around since Moses and yet Pope Francis, the very Pope who shakes hands with Rick Warren acknowledging “Chrislam” states “inequality is the root of social evil”.

Knowing my history as I do I would like to point out there has been extreme social evil in the Catholic church (and we know there has) since the Pope and his Cardinals and Bishops rein over the lower levels of the poor in the church. Francis also has stated capitalists have gotten rich from war and if my History is with me, the Vatican Bank got very full with the church’s collaboration with the Nazi’s and the Catholic church has reigned over others for centuries.

I for one will not share what I have worked for to survive for so many years with others unless I deem them needy which is called Charity, not social justice. I follow no lead or instructions of a socialist Pope who cannot even keep his own house but is looking away or participating in the indoctrination of our children through phony ideology and perception.

I see the “root of social evil” adults of any kind forcing sex upon children!

Education Monster 3The ever present Education Monster!

Common Core isn’t enough! Data Mining is certainly not going far enough I guess! Privacy never even considered! Allowing them to use either gender bathrooms the highlight of the past year and now the real damage overseen by Change Agent teachers.

Parents, have you never heard of DARPA? We warned you this was going to be part of the Common Core implementation. Do you remember our telling you of the computer mouse which will track your child’s emotional responses to items thrown at them while supposedly learning at school?

DARPA – the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency if allowed permission, will be tracking your child’s emotional, behavioral and social STANDARDS! STANDARDS? Our children now have emotional, behavioral and social standards as well as academic? By whose standards?

Who the heck has given the Federal Department of Defense permission to be in your child’s classroom?

The University of Memphis is seeking a licensee to commercialize a significant advance in the Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs). The invention consists of software and proprietary algorithms which allow ITSs to sense and optimally respond to the learner’s (your child) emotional state and not simply their cognitive state.

The inventors are supposedly internationally recognized, award-winning leaders in Artificial Intelligence-based tutor system research. This technology is built on decades of research supported by millions of dollars of your money through federal grants. Award winning? In the mental and emotional manipulation of our children?

While current e-learning systems focus on knowledge and cognition, it is widely acknowledged that the next generation affect-sensitive ITSs will be the wave of the future. For example, the theme of the 14th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education was on “Affective Modeling” –  detecting and responding to student affect.”

For me, it is like stripping a child’s mind and behavioral responses to a state of nakedness. There will be nothing about our children that will be private or sacred to the world but manipulated. No protection of information guaranteed.

  • The computer-based training and e-learning markets are large and constantly growing. Training systems that achieve impressive learning gains, such as the present invention, have a wide range of applications for virtually any computerized training scenario.
  • Gives Intelligent Tutoring Systems the unique capability of responding to student’s emotional states in addition to their cognitive states and knowledge levels.
  • Can be an add-on to existing ITS platforms.
  • Provides a tool that is particularly effective with students who are initially unfamiliar with the subject taught by the ITS.
  • Yields significant learning gains by detecting, responding to, and synthesizing emotion.

The people behind this I guess see it as an experiment on the fun side since they list two NOVEL ASPECTS making the system unique:

  • The algorithm to be used will detect student emotions and combines conversational cues, posture, and facial features. This form of multimodal affect detection is achieved via a three-channel decision level fusion algorithm. (Got that?)
  • The strategies the system uses will respond to students’ emotional and cognitive states. This is accomplished with a theoretically-grounded production system that helps students regulate their negative emotional state in a manner that is dynamically responsive to each individual learner.

To what end? What is the point and purpose of this? To take their current emotional state and regulate it to what THEY believe it should be? What is wrong with a child having a negative emotional state which would be more likely responding to an event?

Is this the beginning of emotionally training your child to think as someone wants them to, not how it comes naturally to them or from their parent’s training?

THEY say, “Simply put, the invention yields impressive learning gains by detecting, responding to, and synthesizing emotion”.

Arthur C. Grasser, one of the inventors, is a professor of psychology and intelligent systems at the University of Memphis and has served as the editor of the Journal of Educational Psychology and Discourse Processes.

Danger:  Keeping in mind that our rights come from the Declaration of Independence, written BEFORE the Constitution, stating that our rights are unalienable and are endowed by our CREATOR – not our legislators, not our government and certainly not from the United Nations and their attempt at gaining control of our children through the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (“CRC”).

“The ever-increasing use of children’s rights discourse by national, regional and international political institutions can perhaps be seen as a sign of the success of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (“CRC”), and of the internalization of the concept that children are independent rights holders, the ideological basis of the doctrine of children’s rights. Nevertheless, there is evidence that some advocates of children’s rights in the political arena are taking an over-simplistic, uni-dimensional approach to children’s rights which results in the misrepresentation of the true interests of children. This risk is well illustrated by the recent resolution of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (“PACE”) resolution entitled “Children’s Right to Physical Integrity,” which inter alia expressed concern about the violation of the right to the physical integrity of young boys circumcised for religious reasons and made recommendations that States should consider placing restrictions on this practice”.

Skinner’s behavioral training boxes

Imagine this scenario – the Intelligent Tutoring Systems monitoring your child’s responses all day long during different subjects, then the information being gathered with those of other children to modify and behaviorally train your children on how to think about numerous social and emotional events, even to the point of “dulling” their reactions or “increasing” them.  B. F. Skinner is dancing in his grave along with all the other freaks who have worked at using our children to achieve their personal goals.

Grasser’s co-buddy in this “emotional game” is Dr. Sidney D’Mello, a research assistant professor at the Institute for Intelligent Systems at the University of Memphis. He co-directs the Emotive Computing Lab. His primary research interests are in the cognitive and affective sciences, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, and the learning sciences. More specific interests include affective computing, artificial intelligence in education, speech recognition and natural language understanding, and computational models of human cognition.

Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking said artificial intelligence “could spell the end of the human race.”

Speaking at the MIT Aeronautics and Astronautics department’s Centennial Symposium in October, Tesla boss Elon Musk referred to artificial intelligence as “summoning the demon.”

” I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I were to guess what our biggest existential threat is, it’s probably that. So, we need to be very careful with the artificial intelligence. Increasingly scientists think there should be some regulatory oversight maybe at the national and international level, just to make sure that we don’t do something very foolish. With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon. In all those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, it’s like yeah, he’s sure he can control the demon. Didn’t work out.”

British inventor Clive Sinclair has said he thinks artificial intelligence will doom mankind. “Once you start to make machines that are rivaling and surpassing humans with intelligence, it’s going to be very difficult for us to survive,” he told the BBC. “It’s just an inevitability.”

Even Bill Gates has sounded an alarm on “artificial intelligence” which is exactly what the ITSs system is intended to be used for. “I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence,” Gates wrote. “First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern. I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don’t understand why some people are not concerned.”

PARENTS IT IS TIME TO SOUND THE ALARM against this. Contact your Education and legislative officials and let them know you are against this system being allowed into our Educational Systems and our children’s daily lives.

If we don’t protect our children, who will?

 

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) is taking a giant leap in EDUCATION as schools seek to raise THEIR standards, looking for help for the schools – not our children and it is coming in the form of virtual assistants packed with the power of artificial Intelligence.

Working to convince you AI will help the teachers and your children is the major goal today claiming it is a necessity because of the population growth and larger classrooms. Pearson, you remember them, are also deeply involved in this manipulation of our children.

AI

Did you notice in the picture above that the AI is also supposed to detect your child’s NEEDS! Keeping our children buried in computers not only is not good for their physical and mental growth, but it is taking them away from personal interaction. The individuals creating and supporting this monstrosity believe they not only have the right to do this, they believe YOU don’t have the right to know what is happening in your child’s daily life nor to stop it.

Waking up at 5 A.M. with this type of information puts my mind in a tailspin – Wake Up Parents!

“Ours may become the first civilization destroyed, not by the power of our enemies, but by the ignorance of our teachers, the dangerous control our legislators believe they have a right to and the corporations who want to fill their coffers. In an age of artificial intelligence, they are creating artificial stupidity.”

And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 KJV

THE UNMASKING OF MAINE….AND BEYOND

Written by Ann Herzer, Independent researcher exposing the Russian Skinnerian/Pavlovian Dog Training Method

Pre-Message from Charlotte Iserbyt:  “This article MUST be published by all political, religious,  and education journals. Please forward to all your lists and especially to elected officials and to President Trump.

Ann Herzer,  a retired public school teacher, and educational researcher was one of first, if not the first, to expose the Russian Skinnerian/Pavlovian dog training method, absolutely necessary for global workforce training and brainwashing.

This dog training  method is also known as Mastery Learning (ML);  Outcomes Based Education (OBE); Direct Instruction (DI); Performance Based Education (PBE); Competency-Based Education (CBE) and Effective Schools.”

Courtesy of Ann Herzer:

Skinner box 2“In some charter schools across the country, the extended day has been implemented. When the USSR put in the total poly tech system in 1958 they also extended the school hours. The professional teachers complained, and an extensive amount of research was done in their schools. What they discovered was that beyond a certain time period, depending on age, no learning takes place. What they did, and probably still continue to, is they researched age groups to see just how much time on task a child could tolerate and still learn. They then adjusted the curriculum accordingly. ( I researched the USSR up to almost 2000 when I determined we were trying to put in the same system of workforce training, so I just read laws in the USA etc. They also held school for a half day on Saturday for usually propaganda education. The after school Communist training schools are legendary.

In case some might be curious, during WWII so many men were killed in Russia and Germany they had to implement the poly tech system that included young children for the war effort. In the USA, the women took the place of men in the factories I. e. Rosie the…. slogan referring to our wonderful women who went into the factories and did the jobs of men. The grandparents usually watched the children and we survived, so did freedom, so far!

Russia thought the system had become undemocratic because too many of the upper class were the only ones selected for higher education, so equal education extended it to all. Now, the students were placed in a career pathway at the end of fourth grade, and there they remained until the state decided what job in their field of study was needed. Needless to say, there was no upward mobility in such a system, the American Dream or Soviet Dream did not exist. The government did not educate for a job that did not have the possibility of existing down the projected time line. Education was under the tight control of government, propaganda and all! A public/private partnership did exist, but business was also tightly controlled by the central Communist party. Their five-year plan is very similar to our PPBS plan promoted by the government and some companies. Some businesses have withdrawn from this system and select to survive or fail on their own. The government control, I understand makes it very difficult for businesses to survive with all the regulations, and that is why many are moving abroad. I only wish President Trump would see the exact correlation in education.

 

Elementary education in many countries ends about 7th or 8th grade, and a minority are selected for further skills training and a few for professional jobs like teachers, doctors etc go to a university for extended learning. The teachers in the USSR were highly trained in their content areas, even in elementary schools. Of course, the Darwin and Pavlovian method and philosophy was taught to the children at a very early age along with job skills. But, the system failed as all totalitarian, government, controlled systems have failed throughout recorded history. Why?

I think the quest for freedom can not be programmed out of many individuals, and the individualism in each and every child will eventually surface regardless of the propaganda and programmed education. (See Common Core or whatever name it goes by now e. g. Career…for an example).

The USSR tried to place children according to their aptitude and self- interest, but economic situations prevailed first. We are trying to do the same thing, and this is one reason we have so much testing in our schools now. Children are too immature at an early age, and no aptitude test can NOT possibly measure where a child should be placed in job training, and these test also includes academic and IQ tests. Most young children want to be firemen, policemen or go to otter- space etc. What is happening now in education destroys the “American Dream” and must be stopped NOW!

I sometimes, in spite of my horror, find it humorous when propaganda names Germany or Finland as our model; they never mention the Soviet Union. Apparently, citizens will accept other countries as an example, but not the Soviet Union. To compare other countries to the USA is like comparing apples and oranges. The USSR adjusted their educational system when it was determined by, mostly teachers, that it was harmful to children. The USA is trying to get rid of our good content teachers and replace them with computers or five-week government trained so called teachers. This is a money making scheme that has no concern for children or our economic stability in the future. As our children are educated, so goes our nation! Right now, our educational system does not project a positive picture especially with Betsy DeVos at the helm.

This is why I have said the old USSR system is more humane than our “so called restructuring of education”. The vested interest continue to harm children to either get the money or are simply fools! Probably both!

I read in the Arizona Republic or USA Today that research shows that women should work shorter hours than men because of the amount of housework a woman does. Apparently, some countries are doing this. It was less than 40 hrs for women and approximately 47 was the limit for men. Seems to me, this is only logical common sense, but Heaven forbid that anyone should not do research to prove a common sense point!

There is a point for everyone including children when overwork and long hours will show up in medical records. The USSR educational system proved this. I wish someone would read the research as I did. Take care and don’t overwork!”

WHAT ARE TODAY’S CHILDREN DOING and WHAT HAVE THEY GOTTEN THEMSELVES IN TO???

Are they committing suicide, selling drugs online or being lured

into trafficking by some online smooth talker?

Parenting TruthAnd these questions are not just for the kids the world has targeted as a “problem”, but those considered as your everyday good kid who gets good grades and as far as you know never gets into trouble.

You may not like what I am going to say, but I really don’t care. If you don’t care anymore about your children than to know what is happening to them from the outside world, you shouldn’t have any. You are not worth the blessing of being honored to be a parent.

I’m not saying these things to be mean, judgmental or ugly, and I’m not saying we all don’t make mistakes along the way, but the world is very ugly today and if you can’t take the time to supervise what your children are doing, watching on TV or involved in on their computers because you see your interests and wants more important than your children’s, then you should have given more thought to having sex BEFORE you got pregnant

Do you allow your child to hide in their bedrooms with their computers so when some pedophile picks them up on Facebook or some other internet social group, you ask “how did this happen”? There is not a child 18 and under that has the decision-making ability to use common sense – not today!

Mentally and emotionally at 18, they are still a child. They haven’t had to have any responsibility for themselves, so when you leave them open to the world, this is what they get –

  • You find your son or daughter in their bedroom, dead because they have been involved in the BLUE WHALE CHALLENGE. It is the new online ugly – downright ghoulish game where your son or daughter would participate in a series (50) tasks and the final one is for them to take their own life.

A boy in San Antonio was found by his father hanging in his bedroom closet having hung himself. The really ghoulish part of this game and the mind of the creator is the player is to position something to take pictures of them while they are dying. The parents pieced together he had been playing this game after talking to his friends and going through his social media on his computer.

The very same week a 16-year-old girl from Georgia died participating in this “game”.

I feel for these family, but “after the fact” can be fatal!

There have been over 130 teens around the world who have taken their lives participating in this “game” which must have come from one of the Devil’s workers. More than one is one too many!

Teachers and school officials have gotten wind of this and school districts across the country have sent warning notices home to parents including Vacaville, California; Baldwin County, Alabama; Warwick, Rhode Island; and Denver.

In Connecticut, Danbury Public Schools Superintendent Sal Pascarella sent a short note to parents around May after administrators from the district’s 19 schools started hearing about the challenge from kids as young as elementary schoolers.

“Elementary school principals started hearing their kids talk about the Blue Whale Challenge. Then the secondary principals started mentioning the same thing,” he said. “We discovered on our school network content the challenge had been looked at on YouTube. … I decided I would rather err on the side of information with parents.” The first challenge calls the Cinnamon Challenge, the participant is to swallow whole spoonful’s of cinnamon to see how much of the throat burning they can stand.

Teasspoon cinnamonThe first challenge is called the Cinnamon Challenge, the participant is to swallow a whole spoonful of cinnamon to see how much of the throat burning they can stand.

The participants are allegedly required to take pictures of their challenges being completed and share them before being directed to end their lives on the 50th day. A search of related hashtags on Instagram shows users posting pictures of scars and cuts or memes that depict suicide.

The piece of trash who invented this game states, “he created the game to “cleanse society” and that they were and that they were nothing but “biological waste” and that they were happy to die. 

Phillip BudeikinPhilipp Budeikin, 21, from Russia, is being held on charges of inciting at least 16 schoolgirls to kill themselves by taking part in a game he invented called ‘Blue Whale’.

Another sick chapter in this gross story is Russian prison authorities say they have received dozens of love letters from teenage girls addressed to the suspect, who is being held at Kresty jail in St Petersburg.

  • TEEN VOGUE magazine telling boys, “For those of you with prostrates, being on the receiving end of anal sex can be a great experience.” The article then goes on to explain why boys will enjoy anal sex.

 Nothing said about the dangers of the infections they might get. Teen Vogue’s Anal Sex: What You Need to Know,” an article that has as its       tagline, “How to do it the RIGHT way.” That sentence drags teenagers into the world of fetish sex and is a jolting reminder that the current purveyors of pop culture have the degradation and sexual objectification of our children as part of their endgame.

This magazine has been putting out articles to your teens titled “No,    You Can’t Get Too Attached to Your Vibrator: Masturbation Myths    Debunked,” “Colton Hayes: I Lost My Virginity at 13 to a Girl and A   Guy,” and “This Teen Created a Map of EVERY Abortion Clinic in the U.S.”

It’s bad enough we have pedophilia dancing around every corner from strangers to your teacher or local priest – maybe even your local policeman, all people we teach our children to trust, but this is inexcusable.

Not to leave the girls out, Teen Vogue’s message to our very young and teen girls goes like this:  Just because you have a vagina does not mean anal is off-limits. Many vagina owners love anal play. You don’t need to have a prostate to enjoy anal sex. For those without a prostate, having your anus stimulated can still be great — remember all those nerve endings are still in the fold here.

The fact the article includes” the warning to use protection during anal sex”, should be of little comfort to parents.

  • Children are using social media through their computers to buy and sell Class A drugs. An undercover operation exposed how popular social networks, including Snapchat and Instagram, have become a ‘paradise’ for those dealing in illegal substances.

Teenagers are employing a code made up of ‘emojis’ – the small digital images normally used to convey emotions – to conceal the deals. One of the country’s largest drug gangs told a BBC documentary 75 per cent of their takings now comes through social media transactions, using ‘digital-savvy’ school pupils.

  • According to law enforcement, there are more than 1.5 million victims of human trafficking in the United States alone — child sex traffickers are using previously harmless emoji symbols to lure their young victims and a method the sinister criminals use to sell children has been revealed.

Investigators found that the symbols are found all over websites like Backpage.com, where pimps are known to sell teen and pre-teen girls and boys for sex. Cherry means virgin, airplane means new in town and the number of rose emojis in a post symbolizes the price. The crown emoji indicates that the child emoji and the most disturbing thing is the growing heart emoji lets the buyer know that the girl or boy is childlike and still has growing to do.

The Polaris Project and Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) are the two most effective and independent organizations working at saving child sex slaves. Link Even if these children are rescued in South America, Asia or anywhere else in the world, many have been taken from the U.S. and Europe.

  • Emoji’s of every design imaginable are being sold on the internet for downloading onto a computer. Even Amazon is selling packs of emojis. Link  Link  Link  The danger here is if a child doesn’t understand EXACTLY what a particular emoji stands for he or she could end up in a great deal of danger.

Emoji’s aren’t sexy unless your mind goes to banana’s, winky faces and eggplants, so now we have 4 (of course California designers) who have come up with a solution called “Flirtmoji“, sexy stickers designed to be pasted on messages as needed. Intended for adults, but if a parent isn’t aware of what their children are doing on a computer – their computer is their ocean.

  • Parents in case you aren’t aware, buying a child on the internet for sex is as easy as trying to sell your old car or washing machine. 70% of child sex trafficking victims are sold online and that even includes Craigslist.

In 2014, at least 105,000 children in the United States were being sexually exploited, according to the Department of Justice and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and the expanding underground industry has no intention of slowing down. The FBI considers sex trafficking the fastest-growing organized crime, and online channels allowing for the exploitation are only making it easier for predators to do business. The Justice Department believes child sex trafficking could generate as much as $32 billion a year.

Online friendships when you don’t know who is really on the other end of that computer screen is a perfect cover-up for a young child who has the everyday complaints against their parents and needs someone to listen.

Don’t misunderstand me, I have no degree in this and I am not claiming none of my 5 children never got into trouble – but trouble when they were growing up was less dangerous then and Satan had not been given carte blanche to roam our streets and move through our children’s computers and cell phones.

Today, your child lying to you is treated with less disrespect and more as a common, everyday thing. It should also be devastating to you any time your child lies to you because it shows you they don’t feel comfortable enough to tell you the truth and even might suspect that what they are involved in they know YOU would not approve.

Parents today think they should be their children’s friend rather than their parents. It is a parent’s obligation to know what they are doing on their computers – get them out in the open with protection controls installed on them. Be their friend after they reach 25 if they are mature enough to handle it.

And please don’t make the mistake thinking those controls should not be installed on those blasted cell phones they wear almost as an earring. They can get targeted through that phone as well as their computer.

I tell parents all the time, “if you aren’t willing to donate 18 years of your life to every one of your children (because that is what each one not only deserves but requires), then don’t have any.

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!
