Common Core Charter School Craziness!

Using Turkish Islamic teachers just the tip of the iceberg in charter irregularities!

Exhibit 1

"Chicago charter schools import 474 Turkish Muslim teachers as 40k American teachers go unemployed," published on November 22, 2014, reported the latest antics of charter school operators:

Horizon Science Academy in Bond Hill... employs seven foreign teachers, mostly from Turkey, brought to the U.S. on H-1B visas for jobs it says Ohio teachers are unqualified to fill.

Concept Schools, founded by followers of a Turkish Islamic cleric secluded in the Poconos, already is under federal and state scrutiny for possible irregularities in teacher licensing, testing and technology contracts.


An Enquirer investigation has found that Chicago-based Concept Schools, which runs Horizon and 17 other charter schools in Ohio, annually imports dozens of foreign teachers in numbers that far surpass any other school system in the state.


At least 474 foreign teachers, again mostly from Turkey, have arrived at Concept’s Ohio schools between 2005 and 2013. The schools are collecting about $45 million in state funds annually to educate 6,600 children in kindergarten through high school....
The Ohio Department of Education is weighing complaints from former Concept staffers that unlicensed, foreign teachers were used.
Ohio teachers, meanwhile, say plenty of qualified teachers are available for jobs being filled by the foreigners, especially since about 40,000 are still without teaching jobs because of the recession. [bold and red in original]

Exhibit 2
Are Americans who live in cities where charter schools exist examining their property tax bills?

Is the fact that their property taxes are going, in many cases, directly into the pockets of for-profit entities, not into the traditional school budget coffer, not of some concern to them?

Is the fact that charter schools have no school boards that represent the voters of the entire municipality of no concern to them? 

Is the fact that Communist Core Marxist curriculum, assessment and remediation of their children's attitudes, values and beliefs will exist in their child's charter school, and they won't have the right to complain about "it" not of concern to them?

Is the fact that charter schools are being used to teach religion of no concern to them?

There used to be a prohibition against tax-funded public education promoting religious beliefs. Many state constitutions forbid tax money going to religious schools! Why is this unconstitutional charter school entity not being challenged in the courts?

What is it going to take for the hard-hit American taxpayer and/or parent to wake up and focus on the problem of tax-funded  government schools with no elected boards (charter schools)... and, in addition, to wake up and understand that once the government funds any form of private eduction,  including religious and home education, that this education entity in effect becomes "public"/"government" education (the kind of education one finds in Cuba, China, or any Socialist, Communist country)?

What is it going to take for Americans to realize that the internationalists, Neoconservatives, Leftists, corporations and their philanthropic agendas (such as Bill Gates), the Council on Foreign Relations, the U.S. Dept. of Education and the Carnegie Corporation "mafia" do NOT care about their children's futures? They all support tax-funded school choice in order to implement the lifelong global workforce training agenda. This Communist workforce agenda cannot be implemented without tax-funded school choice.
Exhibit 3

Limited Learning for Lifelong Labor! Do Americans not understand what those four words mean? Think about it! The National Alliance of Business, in the nineteen nineties, called for workforce training Kindergarten to Age 80 (Yes, Eighty years old! Read more HERE)

The money MUST follow the child; each child into the slot designated by the public/private partnership. This is the Soviet polytechnical system. This is what the late Prof. Eugene Boyce of University of Georgia described so well when he defined Communist polytech education as follows in his book The Coming Revolution in Education, 1983, as quoted in the deliberate dumbing down of america, page 317:
"The communists do not educate people for jobs that do not exist. No such direct, controlled relationship between education and jobs exists in democratic countries.” [read more HERE]
What is it going to take for Americans to  realize that education is no longer about academics, but about "training" their children for the global workforce? Your child is considered nothing but a cog in "their" machine to be trained to spin off profits for the members of the global elite.  

All this was planned by the Carnegie Corporation in 1934 in its little book Conclusions and Recommendations for the Social Studies which called for using THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS to change America's (successful) Capitalist economic system to a planned Socialist (unsuccessful) economy.  Look at Soviet Russia which adopted the planned economic system after the Bolshevik Revolution.   The Soviet Union was always a "basket case. Carnegie has been behind the school to work agenda for America since the aforementioned book was published. (Read more HERE).

Read this again from the article cited above:

Ohio teachers, meanwhile, say plenty of qualified teachers are available for jobs being filled by the foreigners, especially since about 40,000 are still without teaching jobs because of the recession.[bold and red in original]

What is it going to take for the few remaining academically-oriented American public school teachers to realize that they have been used since the passage of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act as guinea pigs in this whole socialist corporate fascist Skinnerian performance/outcomes based education school-to-work restructuring catastrophe?

The average American public school teacher detests what is taking place in American education.    He/she doesn't want to teach to the test using Skinner and his box, the computer, or to be turned into a mental health professional. Why aren't those few remaining good academic teachers organizing a massive protest before their state capitols and before the Congress in Washington, D.C? What do they have to lose since their jobs as professional academic teachers are already targeted for extinction. Get informed! Stay informed! Read this blog!

A Victory for Sanity...

Croatia Boots Out Sex Education
http://inavukic.com/2013/05/22/croatian-constitutional-court-abolishes-health-sex-education-curriculum/#comments
The above article from May 2013, reported on the influence of our friend Dr. Judith Reisman, who is the author of several books exposing the fraud and horrific practices of Alfred Kinsey, as well as the dangers of modern "sex education" curricula. Here is a summary of the Croatian victory:
As I have written in my previous posts (see links at end of this article) the sex education curriculum imposed in Croatia early this year saw a nation bitterly divided on issues covered in the curriculum; it saw the Croatian TV journalist Karolina Vidovic Kristo lose her TV show “Picture of Croatia” and suspended from duties because she offered the public information that the new sex education curriculum could contain aspects tied to research of Alfred Kinsey and pedophiles and saw dr Judith Reisman publicly ridiculed and vilified by certain pro-government persons during her visit to Croatia in support of journalist Karolina Vidovic Kristo.

What a great day for Croatia: the whole government imposed curriculum on sex and health education has been booted out of schools! A great lesson for the government and politicians that one cannot impose and keep imposing upon people that which goes against the grain and morality of the people, of the parents of children who are to be educated. [bold added]
I was amazed to find the following fairly sensible thinking related to homosexuality being abnormal in UNESCO's book Education and Mental Health, which I purchased due to my need for research on UNESCO's role in initial support for many of the values destroying programs funded by my old office in the U.S. Dept. of Education.   Education and Mental Health, W.D. Wall, UNESCO, 1955,  page 293, does refer to the work of the psychiatrist, Dr. Edmund Bullis, and his lesson plans entitled  "Human Relations in the Classroom" about which we wrote in the Updated/Abridged version of the deliberate dumbing down of america, 2011, available at Amazon.com.

Sometimes support for traditional values, albeit expressed in extremely weak and lukewarm terms, comes from very, very unusual (unlikely) sources, such as UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Science, and Cultural Organization) which has been responsible for so many of the outrageous values destroying mental health and sex education programs in the schools! Maine's State Health Education Program (SHEP) which used The Berkeley (CA) Model, 1976, referenced UNESCO over and over, and called for 12th grade students to understand the THREE types of sexual intercourse: man and woman, man and man, and with animals! 

The following quotes taken from Education and Mental Health, page 204-205, Problems of Secondary Education, by W.D Wall, UNESCO, Paris, 1955. The following comments are fascinating since they evidently reflect the views of UNESCO, the most  pro-world government and pro-destructive humanistic values organization in the world in 1955... sixty years ago!  The comments are quite laid back and couched in non-judgmental/non-authoritarian language. However, they are, in my opinion, clear as crystal.
Danger only arises when one of the parties is abnormal, maladjusted or unsatisfied.  There is the possibility that a homosexual fixation may result or a serious sexual shock may occur if a young boy is seduced by an older homosexual man or by a senior boy who has homosexual leanings. Even however when such a seduction occurs, if the victim is himself secure and even moderately well adjusted, he is likely to pass through it with little ultimate damage--provided his parents or any other adults who may become involved treat the matter with skill and restraint, rather than, in their horror, piling up guilt and fear in the child's mind.  The single sex boarding school is, of course, peculiarly liable to give rise to such problems; but a sensible and understanding watchfulness on the part of a staff who are themselves mentally healthy, and who do not read into the actions and feelings of adolescents more than is really there, is the best preventive measure. Adolescents who are living a full, interesting and satisfying life are in little danger of developing sexual abnormalities."
So, UNESCO in 1955 appears to have agreed with the majority of the world's population that homosexuality is abnormal. In other words, this lifestyle is NOT normal.

I wonder how UNESCO would have dealt with this type of incident in 1955 compared to the UN's and other NGO's lack of concern and tolerance of such activities in 2014. "Gay Founder of Human Rights Campaign Arrested for Raping a 15-year old Boy," By Matt Barber, Nov. 21, 2014:
Yet another high profile "gay" activist has been arrested for homosexual assault on a child. This time authorities caught one of the big fish (a rainbow trout?): Terrence Patrick Bean founded the "Human Rights Campaign" (HRC), which is one of the world's largest, wealthiest and most powerful anti-Christian organizations. HRC was developed for the sole purpose of pushing the extremist homosexual political agenda. Bean is also a major player for the DNC and a big Obama supporter.
Yet another reason for readers to get themselves copies of books by Dr. Judith Reisman! Be sure to read my earlier post "DELIBERATE GLOBAL PERVERSION"




The Dumbing Down of Morality

GHASTLY AND TRULY BEYOND BELIEF!


In an article titled, "TRENDING: MORE COLLEGE STUDENTS SUPPORT POST-BIRTH ABORTION," Oct. 29, 2014, by Mairead McArdle, it reports the following disturbing information:

A trend seen by prolife activists that frequently engage college students on campuses nationwide is the growing acceptance of post-birth abortion, or killing the infant after he or she is born, campus prolife outreach leaders tell The College Fix.

Anecdotal evidence by leaders of prolife groups such as Created Equal and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust said in interviews that not only do they see more college students willing to say they support post-birth abortion, but some students even suggest children up to 4 or 5-years-old can also be killed, because they are not yet “self aware.”

“We encounter people who think it is morally acceptable to kill babies after birth on a regular basis at almost every campus we visit,” said Mark Harrington, director of Created Equal. “While this viewpoint is still seen as shocking by most people, it is becoming increasingly popular.” [bold added]
It isn't just the unborn babies and the elderly who they are out to eliminate? Not is it the birth-to-5-year olds?

Is this a nightmare or what?

While prolife activists work day in and day out to stop abortion and to stop euthanasia legislation from passing, this report surfaces?!

Young college people and sick media-brainwashed feminists are a tragic segment of the USA demographic landscape. You can be sure legislation is in the hopper to fulfill their satanic/demonic wishes.

There is a good bumper sticker which hits the nail on the head regarding the depravity surrounding us:
"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."

Is Gov. Jindal Breaking the Law?

IS GOVERNOR JINDAL'S OWN ADMINISTRATION CONSPIRING TO BREAK THE LAW?

Below is an important national alert from The People LLC in Louisiana, 11/20/2014. It is reproduced in its entirety. The original is posted HERE. Please spread the word about what is happening! 



During the 2014 Louisiana Legislative Session, the legislature unanimously passed Act 837 which provides the strongest student privacy protections in the nation.  The main objective of the law is to keep students' Personally Identifiable Information (PII) at the school district level. 

Additionally, the law provides for Unique Identification Numbers (UIN) to replace the use of social security numbers in student records. Parents all over the state felt that this was necessary due to the careless actions of the state’s own Superintendent of Education, Mr. John White, who actually gave student social security numbers to a Third Party Vendor.  The state Department of Education (DOE) is charged with assigning the Unique Identification Numbers to the districts so that duplicate numbers will not be used.  The districts are then charged with assigning the UIN to each student.
http://www.nola.com/education/index.ssf/2013/04/after_bese_discussion_white_pu.html
On October 1st of 2014, Governor Jindal’s Division of Administration (DOA) issued an RFP (Request for Proposal) on behalf of the DOE claiming the system that is described in the RFP is required to comply with Act 837. 

But a funny thing happened on the way to the RFP.  Somehow, the law has been ignored and instead of requesting just a "Number System," the RFP actually asks for a “Unique Identifier System”.  The Unique Number System that was envisioned by the Act is one which simply creates a system of unique numbers that are put in batches and distributed to the school districts.  
Louisiana Gov. Jindal


In the governor’s RFP, that straightforward system has now been replaced with a Unique Identifier System.  The system that the DOA and the DOE intend to build will require that our children's PII be maintained at the state level rather than locked-down at the school district level.   

Two additional concerns are that, according to the RFP, students' PII will be housed in a "Master Person Index"  and it will be maintained by a THIRD PARTY VENDOR.  Under the RFP, this Vendor will actually be considered a “school official” and shall be granted access to our children’s educational records.  The RFP also states that the contractor may share those records for “educational purposes," as long as the party they share that information with will promise to keep it confidential!

Do the governor's DOA and its collaborators think that "getting around the law" by giving our kids' data to an INBLOOM-TYPE ENTITY is what is in the best interest of the citizens of this state?!?

From the RFP:
“To the extent that Contractor has access to “education records” under this     Contract, it is deemed a “school official,” as each of these terms are defined under FERPA. Contractor agrees that it shall not use education records for any purpose other than in the performance of this Contract. Except as required by law, Contractor shall not disclose or share education records with any Third Party unless permitted by the terms of this Contract or to Contracted Personnel unless they have agreed to maintain the confidentiality of the education records to the same extent required of Contractor under this Contract.”

But wait, it actually gets better.  It seems that a state system to provide student ID numbers to the school districts already exists.  In fact, it was established by the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) and the DOE in 1992! 

Since the new law requires that a number system be established, why didn’t anyone from the governor’s administration mention throughout the bill drafting process, committee hearings or floor discussions in either chamber that Louisiana already has a system established since 1992 to assign identification numbers to students? 

From the SIS User Guide (Introduction):
“During the June 1992 Board of Elementary and Secondary Education meeting, Bulletin 741 was revised to include a requirement that all students present an official Social Security Card upon entry into Louisiana schools for the first time or be assigned an official State identification number.”
https://leads13.doe.louisiana.gov/lug/SIS/SISUG.pdf
 The fact is the districts were never REQUIRED to use student social security numbers.

The larger fact is that, in the RFP issued by the governor's DOA, we have a snapshot of what it looks like when our administration is determined to harvest our children's Personally Identifiable Data at all costs and in direct contravention to the law.  This RFP actually claims that Act 837 requires it!

Do Governor Jindal and John White really think that they are above the law?

Stay tuned as there is more to follow.  Please, share this post with all of your contacts and on social media.  Please, also consider (and ask your contacts to consider) donating to our efforts as we fight against this agenda.

Little Emma Loses Her Vote

A 2nd Grader's Homework
THE GOVERNMENT WILL GIVE US OUR RIGHTS?!

What a lesson Little Emma is getting in "Being a Good Citizen." As shocking as is this 2nd grader's homework, the dumbed down educator who designed it at least does discuss and appreciate the RIGHT TO VOTE!

(An appreciation, by the way, which we cannot attribute to the Trotskyite neoconservatives involved in vigorously pushing for tax-funded school "choice"/charters with no elected boards and no voter representation!)

That right to vote will be taken away from Little Emma, the second grader who filled out the test above, once ALL education (public, private, religious, virtual, and home schools) becomes tax-funded and controlled by the federal government. AFTER ALL -- What the government funds the government controls!

(Remember: Tax-funded school choice/charters have no elected boards! )

So, education (nationwide) which has the second largest budget after the Department of Defense, will be controlled by unelected boards! This removal of the right to vote on such a huge portion of the nation's total budget can only be expected to commence the devolution of our right to vote, at every level of government!

See little Emma's points 7 and 8:
(7) Some day you will be given the right to vote. This is an honor. By using this right you can take part in the government...

(8) When you begin to work, you will have to pay taxes. Taxes help to run the country. Roads, schools, police forces, fire fighters and government worker are all paid from taxes.

Someone ought to warn Little Emma!

Common Core Charter Village Hub Schools

COMMUNISM IS HERE: "COMMUNITY EDUCATION" 

Farrell (Pennsylvania) "hub" community education diagram
Russia has been a key player in developing TAX-FUNDED SCHOOL '"CHOICE" & CHARTERS WITHOUT ELECTED BOARDS and its corresponding COMMUNITY EDUCATION!

Some history follows, starting with the Full-Service Community Schools Act of 2014 and going back to the 1946 Montgomery County, Maryland pilot project which was the beginning of the demise of our representative republic, to be replaced by socialism/communism. This pilot project, interestingly enough, followed the United States joining the Communist United Nations in 1945!

Watch Hoyer's speech by clicking HERE.

(1) 2014: Congressman Steny Hoyer: Floor Statements: "Hoyer: Full-Service Community Schools Act Will Help Close Achievement Gap." The most recent Full-Service Community Schools Act introduced in Congress July 23, 2104:  Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD) spoke on the House Floor earlier this morning on the Full-Service Community Schools Act of 2014, which he is introducing today with Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL). Read his remarks and watch the video: http://www.democraticwhip.gov/content/hoyer-remarks-full-service-community-schools-act-2014:
Full-service community schools are an innovative approach to help students and their parents access a full range of critical services all in one place. Let me emphasize, these are services that are currently available but not as accessible because they are not centralized. We will encourage communities to put together the services that they already provide in an accessible way for children and their families.
“For low-income parents working multiple jobs as they send their kids to school, finding time to provide them with adequate checkups and dental screening is often very difficult. The full-community schools model locates these services at their children's school along with nutritional counseling, financial literacy education, and adult classes – services that in most communities are already offered – to make it easier for both students and parents to access these services under one roof. It also helps ensure parents have the tools they need to support their children's learning, so critically important to the children’s success. (Source) [bold added]

“OPEN is a hub of hubs."
Orleans Public Education Network (OPEN), funded by W.K Kellogg Foundation
...New Orleans is... the nation’s first and only all-charter school district,
the Recovery School District [RSD]. The system of
charter schools, which are run by private groups
instead of a publicly-elected board
....RSD focuses less on the ABC's and
more on holistic child development,
including topics like socialization, independence, self-control,
communication skills and accepting responsibility.

(3) 2000: Russian Conference on Community Education: "Community Schools and Education Policy in Transition Countries During the 21st Century" from the Center for Civil Society:
October 9-13, 2000 in Omsk (Siberia), Russia, Krasnoyarsk Center
for Community Partnerships (KCCP) together with Organizing Committee
of Omsk City Community Schools (Department of Education of Omsk
Regional Administration, Department of Education of Omsk City
Administration, Public schools # 49, 63, 95, 142) is conducting an
international conference on community education/community schools in
transition countries.
Conference Goal
Establishing partnership between government education departments and
the community school movement. As a result: increasing number of
government programs and procedures to establish community schools as
part of the education policy in transition countries. [bold added]

(4) 1999: An article was published titled “Clusters Promote Community Growth” that described a second-step phase of a “systems change” effort outlined in a joint publication from the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Together We Can. The article described the shift from representative (elected) governance to regional (unelected) governance with partnerships:
Unique groups called Community Cluster Care Teams were born last April, comprised of 12 Gwinnett communities, and have taken their first steps toward uniting sections of the county into neighborhoods. [excerpted from page 439 of my book, emphasis added]
Soviet propaganda for Young Pioneers

(5) 1992: Russia was deeply involved in implementing school choice/charters necessary for school to work (limited learning for lifelong labor). The Effective School Report's Feb. 1992 issue carried an article titled "Free Education in a Free Society" that concluded, in part:
The education reform process will be built on the work of many small groups making their own decisions. We will need to build into our project structure of contract making (charters, ed), interdependence with autonomy and hold it within a regulated and boundaried field of action. These kinds of structures and models are new forms of organization for both East and West and represent a move away from hierarchy and role-dominated cultures.
The Consortium activity has the official support of the Minister of Education for the Russian Republic, Dr. Edouard Dneprov. [excerpted from p. 292-3 of my book, emphasis added]
Dr. Lepley's community "hub" article
(6) 1989: "Education in the Future: 21st Century Schools Will Offer Learning for All Citizens" was published in The Muscatine [Iowa] Journal’s April 22, 1989 issue. It articulated Dr. William Lepley (at that time director of Iowa's Department of Education) vision for the school as "hub" for all community services and life needs. At the time Iowans referred to his vision of the school superintendent's intrusive role overseeing the entire community as a "pseudo-benevolent godfather":
Dr. William Lepley's Iowa "hub" model
The ideal school houses social agencies such as health, job, and human service agencies, child care and serves as the community’s senior citizen volunteer center, [Dr. Lepley] said. And adults come to ideal schools—open round the clock—for educational opportunities ranging from childbirth and parenting classes to pre-retirement planning, he added. In the ideal community, Lepley said, the superintendent coordinates children and family services, in addition to education. [excerpted from page 253 of my book, emphasis added]

(7) 1985: Soviets in the Classroom! President Reagan-USSR President Gorbachev (US-USSR Education Agreements) signed in 1985. The agreements called for

“cooperation in the field of science and technology and additional agreements in other specific fields, including the humanities and social sciences; the facilitation of the exchange by appropriate organizations of educational and teaching materials, including textbooks, syllabi, and curricula, materials on methodology, samples of teaching instruments and audiovisual aids, and the exchange of primary and secondary school textbooks and other teaching materials... [and] the conducting of joint studies on textbooks between appropriate organizations in the United States and the Ministry of Education of the U.S.S.R.” [Read more in Appendix XXIII of my book]

From Feld's expose on "Community Education," p. 55
(8) 1980: Community Education, described by Ruth Feld and Jil Wilson in the Exposing the Global Road to Ruin through Education, Disc #8, (Written Submissions) is at  http://www.deliberatedumbingdown.com, as a free download website (Click HERE). Also read this blogpost: "Community Education & UN Agenda 21."  This remarkably well-documented history of the Community Education movement is essential for a complete understanding of the almost one hundred year communist plan to put the USA and other countries under Limited Learning for Lifelong Labor/Community Education/Communism. Savvy education  activist/researchers/writers and ELECTED  school board members fought "them" and postponed full implementation by 18 years!

(9) 1946: Community-Centered Schools, The Blueprint, Montgomery County, Maryland schools. Immediately after USA joined the United Nations. Letter of transmittal states:
[The] program should be put into operation gradually… and Dr. Paul Mort and others have accumulated evidence which shows a period of almost fifty years between the establishment of need (need assessment, etc.) and the school programs geared to meet it.
If the school as an agency of society is to justify itself for the period ahead of us, it must be accepted that its fundamental function is to serve the people of the entire community, the very young children, the children of middle years, early adolescent youth, older youth and the adults as well.

Common Core-upt Charters

SOCIALISTS DETEST ELECTED OFFICIALS!
Arne Duncan in New Orleans

One post after the other (below) from the so-called school choice education experts relates to "everything you ever wanted to know - pro and con - about charter schools."

Watch the video at "DISCUSS: Are Charter Schools Beneficial To Education?" Learning Matters, 9/20/11: http://learningmatters.tv/blog/web-series/discuss-are-charter-schools-beneficial-to-education/7607/
Be sure to watch this video! Listen to this mother's pleas!


Charters are supposed to be the panacea! But they have problems -- documented in this video. Except it doesn't state the major problem: they are run by unelected councils rather than elected school boards!

If you can find one comment related to their not having elected boards in this video report, I will give you five dollars!

Relate this ignorance (related to the U.S. Constitution) of so-called school choice education experts in 2014 to  the following quote from Vital Speeches for the New Social Order, Augustine Rudd, 1948, wrote that "a carefully conducted survey recently revealed that nearly two-thirds of our college students favored socialism."

No wonder in thousands of words regarding charter schools, even including documenting their many problems, there is not one word -- NO MENTION -- of the fact that they operate with unelected boards, outside of the oversight and accountability to local voters, citizens and parents.
