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!

Still Falling for the Republican Games? They Aren’t Conservative!

It’s 5:01 A.M. – and all is not right with the world! Satan is marching foot loose and fancy free and you can’t sleep.

You toss, turn and finally decide to get up because your brain will not stop! Is it God tapping on your mind – I like to think so, for when I find I need to sleep he softly touches me and says, “Sleep child, the day has been long!”

THINGS I KNOW FOR SURE –  

God is Crying! His people are wandering in a world of self – “It’s all about me”!

Over the past 24 hours California has had over 100 earthquakes from 0.6 – 4.1. Michigan of all places had one this month at 4.2.; at 4:45 am today 5/22 Maine had a rare 2.1 quake; and over the past 48 hours the whole of the West coast of the United States has moved on at least a 4.0 magnitude level or greater.  A large share of these is natural especially all the ones they have had in Nepal, but the man-made induced ones are a serious concern. An April 2015 a USGS report found the increase in seismicity has been found to coincide with the injection of wastewater in deep disposal wells in several locations, including Colorado, Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Ohio.

Much of this wastewater is a byproduct of oil and gas production and is routinely disposed of by injection into wells specifically designed and approved for this purpose. It’s called hydraulic fracturing or “fracking”. Things are moving.

Political ProstitutesI now know our elected officials are “Political Prostitutes” (PP) continuing to waste our money and pass legislation to push forward their massive lie regarding Global Warming. Now all over the country individual community unelected city and county councils are trying to gain control over all our water.
I refer to their corporate buddies in crime as “corporate whores” whose greed has taken over their very being demanding control of every aspect of our lives.

I know morality and values were this country’s greatest strength – John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other”. I don’t care what the atheists are trying to make you believe. This country was founded on Godly teaching which is why it was one of the main things the Communists knew they had to change – our morals and values.

The United States of America is now a dictatorship because our PP have over the years deliberately set us up not as a country, but a mass of corporations from every town, village, city, county, state – including the federal government! You ask why the elected ones are not following the Constitution – they work for us? No they don’t – they haven’t since 1871.

I know the difference between “The Constitution of the united states of America” (a republic) and “THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” (a corporation) because when I went to school they still taught us how to learn – not to be indoctrinated.

I know Congress committed TREASON against the People, who were considered Sovereign under the Declaration of Independence and the organic Constitution. I also know that every elected PP since them has at some point learned we are not operating as a Republic.

I know we have allowed ourselves to be manipulated and indoctrinated into the touchy-feely world believing what we want is far more important than what we need.

I know God has become an afterthought only to remembered when we need something.

I know we have clergy with yellow stripes running down their backs because they don’t preach the truth of what is happening for fear of losing donations from some heavy donating liberal.

I know we have clergy who are preaching a “prosperity” form of religion and oh how Jesus hated the money changers. They distort the words of the bible to suit whatever social agenda comes along even to the point of trying to convince we Christians we pray to the same God as Muslims.

I know Evil has overtaken country not to mention the world as a whole. It is hanging over us like a deep, dark veil with a stink that burns your very soul.

I know Barack Hussein Obama is NOT the Chosen One – he just thinks he is! He is a puppet as most PP’s are.

Our world is being dominated by corrupt MEN/WOMEN whose only focus in life is MONEY – POWER – CONTROL! I almost want to still be alive to watch as they try to take over the world in their New World Order and self-destruct while fighting to see who will be on top – all of these political prostitutes and corporate whores cannot be in control at the same time. It will be like an eating frenzy.

I know these individuals and more like them are liars by their actions and the words they speak! Karl Rove, Dick Morris, Dick Armey, Colin Powell, Jeb Bush, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Bill Gates, Clinton’s Newt Gingrich, Dick Chaney, Condoleezza Rice, governors and elected legislators and many others– are evil, some so deeply ingrained in the worship of Lucifer they no longer can see any light! Their eyes are dull and their smiles tainted.

But they will certainly try to get your support and/or vote by telling you they are Christian and Conservative. But they are liars!

I know most Minister’s, Priest’s and Rabbis are following a false God called 501 (c) (3) not willing to stand-up and speak out for HIM who they are supposed to be serving or those whom they are to be guiding and leading – look at Rick Warren – Joel Osteen and many others. The Jesuit Pope – listen to what is coming out of his mouth!
I know Islam is evil and their GOD is nothing like my GOD as Rick Warren would have you believe – my GOD does not wish all those who do not believe in HIM should be dead. Jesus never ask his people to murder those who don’t believe in him just because they don’t believe – if that were true there wouldn’t be any Jews alive today.
Always remember when they talk about honoring Islam as a religion and Sharia the enforcing part of that religion – Islam is NOT a religion but a social and political ideology. A way of life so to speak.

Many so called conservatives co-opted the initial intentions of the Tea Party movement – I guess it was easier to let others decide what we were all about! Many of those groups are funded by those who are actually our foes in “sheep’s clothing” – others are just plain greedy taking our donations in masses to live “high on the hog”.

Where do you stand? Are you awake? Have you fallen into the neo-con phony world of so called conservatives? Are you buying into a temporary fix rather than a total repair? We worked ourselves to death to get the Congress majority to Republican and they have done NOTHING to protect the American people, but have continually gone along with Obama and the left and refused to defund his policies and activities.

Do you still believe if a republican candidate tells you he is a conservative and loves God you believe him without checking him or her out?

Is your next updated cell phone more important than the communist actions that have stolen your constitutional liberties? Is family important to you or just a bothersome detail?

Are you a sheeple or a God fearing, Constitution loving, stand-up American who will do everything in your power to preserve and defend the United States of America?

What are “sheeple”? A term referring to Americans used to describe those who voluntarily acquiesce to a suggestion without critical analysis or research; easily led; refuse to listen to the truth with facts; actions lead to the destruction of the country.

Oxymorons2

I personally will not accept anything less nor should you – no excuses – anyone elected to any office in this country will have to PROVE to me they are a God fearing, Constitutional trusting individuals – all are politicians, with the exception of about six I can name and are currently speaking “double-speak” and that is nothing but lies!

Example – we have 3 men – governors – who whole heartedly were out there supporting the Common Core Standards and Jeb Bush, but now that they have decided to throw their 2 cents into the Presidential ring – they have recanted to give the appearance they are now on the side of all the parents who have been fighting this monster.  Mike Huckabee – the most disgusting as a supposed man of God; Scott Walker and Bobby Jindal.

Example – Ted Cruz has been talking a good talk, but what about his past and that of his wife? It is a proven fact that many “first” ladies have had a lot of influence on what comes out of the White House. Is he another Republican plant? A good-looking talker who for you, always seems to say the right things at the right times?
If you are awake and learning you know the Bush Dynasty are liars and crooks – this is where you first heard about a New World Order and got the beginnings of ruining your children through their education not to mention the Global Warming Lies – G.H.W.B.!

Cruz spent a good portion of his early career working for President George W. Bush — first as a legal policy adviser to the Bush-Cheney campaign in 2000, then as part of the recount team in Florida (remember that election?). He was the Department of Justice coordinator for the Bush-Cheney transition team and then spent six months as Associate Deputy Attorney General at the DOJ. But his longest stretch of work for Bush was at the Federal Trade Commission from 2001-03 at the Office of Policy Planning as the director. In 2003 he left to become the Solicitor General of Texas on Bush’s recommendation.

Cruz was a relatively unknown when he ran for the Senate and had spent the last several years writing op-eds and making speeches for conservative think tanks. Few knew much about him; he’d held some appointments at the federal level, courtesy of Bush, and been Texas solicitor general—but aside from the most superficial resemblance to Tea Party crush Marco Rubio, that was about it as far as his credentials went. Cruz had never run for any office, but he’d spent a lot of time with the hard right.

I heard the statement made “Oh he’s a good guy – his father is a minister”. Our ministers today are not all “good guys” having been rather taken by the almighty $$.

If you are beginning to wake up you will see has been a political star of the Bush family as he was not that well-known in Texas when he decided to run for office. George W. Bush was the first to give him a huge endorsement and then had the added assistance of George P. Bush (Jeb’s son) in pulling in the Hispanic Republicans of Texas.

His wife, Heidi Cruz, has worked at the investment banking firm of Merrill Lynch since 2005 and will take a leave of absence to campaign with her husband. Heidi Cruz also has a formidable political résumé. She previously was the director for the Western Hemisphere at the National Security Council and worked at the Treasury Department. She graduated from Harvard Business School and Claremont McKenna College.

Heidi was an active member of the Council on Foreign Relations until June, 2011 on a 5-year “term membership” program.

Her time at the CFR cannot go unnoticed as during her term at the CFR Heidi Cruz served on a task force that in 2005 wrote “Building a North American Community,” a report from CFR on relations between the United States, Mexico and Canada which in actuality they were referring to the work to put in place the “North American Union” (NAU) a baby George W. Bush was heavily pushing and Obama has now taken up the reigns.

Heidi’s bio on this report states: HEIDI S. CRUZ* is an energy investment banker with Merrill Lynch in Houston, Texas. She served in the Bush White House under Dr. Condoleezza Rice as the Economic Director for the Western Hemisphere at the National Security Council, as the Director of the Latin America Office at the U.S. Treasury Department, and as Special Assistant to Ambassador Robert B. Zoellick, U.S. Trade Representative. Prior to government service, Ms. Cruz was an investment banker with J.P. Morgan in New York City.

There is also a notation on the document – Note: Task Force members participate in their individual and not institutional capacities. * The individual has endorsed the report and submitted an additional or a dissenting view.

This is no small matter – you cannot serve on a task force and help write something as important as this and not believe in what you are doing. I don’t care what anyone says. You cannot serve more than one master!

The real danger here folks is once again our elected “prostitutes” have gotten in bed with big corporations, seeking to serve multi-national business interests aligned to the fast-track authority to push through Congress without debate or amendments anything regarding the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TIP) which when put in place will be an even bigger job killer of America than NAFTA ever thought off. The NAU is part of this along with the future New World Order.

COLLECTIVISM is COLLECTIVISM is COLLECTIVISM is COLLECTIVISM!

After all the free information passed along to friends and foes – many still do not want to know or hear the truth – choosing rather to ignore the information thinking it will all go away and they won’t have to deal with it.
“THEY” chose our children to be used as the main tool in the destruction of America and most of our future leaders have had the Communist education fed to them.

“THEY” are monitoring everything we do, say, buy, sell!

“THEY” are adding GMO’s to our baby foods and nearly all of our infant formula, including every one of the millions of bottles distributed free by the government. Gerber, Kellogg, Wal-Mart brands contain genetically engineered corn or soy, as well as milk from cows injected by bovine growth hormone.

“THEY”, Monsanto knows infants and young children are more sensitive to the toxins found in GMOs and they are weakening their immune systems.

“THEY” are creating vaccinations which are killing and/or leaving our children with weak immune systems and at the very least Autistic – a proven medical fact. Why is it when one child is murdered by a violent person, as a culture, we put forth anger, hatred, and punishment towards such a sick person. Yet when there is documented evidence that proves, beyond any doubt, that hundreds, and likely thousands of infants, are murdered every year by vaccines in this country, we consider it to be good public policy?

Our children are being given RFID’s by the schools to monitor them – are we in NAZI Germany?

Our children are singing songs wishing people who are against Obama or Mother Earth would die! They have been taught the animals are more important than humans!

What kind of a nation have we become that our people are so indoctrinated and brainwashed they will not even do their own research to know for a fact that every Communist country has always killed three-quarters of the people by first taking their guns and the other quarter spend the rest of their lives as “worker-bees”!
We do not protest when our President tells us we are to “honor” the UN when they are the force behind our destruction!

The political parties have ruined this country! The only difference between the 2 political parties is their names. They are friends in war!

If you are a Politician you cannot be God fearing or support the original Constitution!

Lucifer will lose and the timing is all up to us! I have learned far too much!

WHAT I AM NOT SURE OF –
If I will still be alive when Christ returns to enjoy the glory; if Ian will be able to realize the dream he has had since he was 4 years old; if Liam will be able to grow up in the America I knew that was God loving and Constitution respecting; if our grandchildren have paid enough attention to what we have told them and if we are part of the 9% who will have to participate in civil war to save America!

Wake Up America! Stop being sugar-fed by these politicians who “seem” to say the right things at the right time just when you need the reassurance they care about you. They don’t!
