Marcus Tullius Cicero



Marcus Tullius Cicero, (106-43 B.C.) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator:

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

COMMUNITY EDUCATION IS FOR EVERYONE!!!

 
 
The Deliberate Dumbing Down of the Village

Common Core Charter Village Hub Schools

For more on Community Education read:

COMMON CORE IS HOSTILE TO CHRISTIAN AND CATHOLIC EDUCATION

Speech given at the Educational Policy Conference 25, Constitutional Coalition, in St. Louis, Mo., February 1, 2014. By Betsy Kraus
 
GOOD MORNING:
 
My first report covers the 1985 National Catholic Education Association Conference in St. Louis where Robert Muller, from the United Nations, WAS THE KEY NOTE SPEAKER promoting his World Core Curriculum; and, Ernest L Boyer, President of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, held a workshop called Education: A World View. This Convention marked a major infiltration of globalists into Catholic Education.
 
My second report, "Catholic Children in Grave Danger", gives detailed information on Common Core in the Catholic Schools and how the computer system combined with standards and outcome based education can control all students, public or private, or faith-based.
 
My third report, "Catholic Education in America: To Deceive the Elect?", features a 2007 education conference entitled The Carnegie Conversation on Catholic Education, led by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching for the benefit of prominent Catholic educators, which led directly to Common Core in Catholic Schools under the label, The Common Core Catholic Identity Initiative, now in many, many Catholic dioceses.
 
In 1934 the Carnegie Foundation released a report on Social Studies. It was deemed by a socialist to be a program for a Socialist America. I have seen nothing which indicates that Carnegie's intent has ever changed. (Report listed in References)
 
 *********************************************************************
 
TRANSFORMATION
 
Dr. Robert Marzano will be a featured speaker at the April Convention of the National Catholic Education Association.
 
He is a leading educational researcher, trainer, and supporter of Common Core. He stated that Common Core is a SECOND ORDER CHANGE. (SOC)
 
SECOND ORDER CHANGE:
 
Educator John C. Hillary discussed Second Order Change in a 1990-91 issue of "Outcomes" (OBE). He described SOC as framing the social system causing ambiguity, discontinuity, anxiety, frustration, paranoia, cynicism and anger. The eventual outcome is a transformed or renewed organization. It requires one to violate or challenge the established culture.
 
Second Order Change is planned chaos to change our whole social culture from freedom to socialism:
 
Please be aware of the Transformative Ignatian Pedagogy taught in Jesuit and other schools, with references including the Carnegie Foundation, Robert Marzano, John Dewey, Paulo Freire, and Jerome Bruner, who conceived of Mastery Learning, OBE. (See Catholic References)
 
COMMON CORE IS HOSTILE TO ALL OUR STUDENTS
 
It is a Marxist, Socialistic, Global, Educational SYSTEM incorporating:
Behavioral and mind-control techniques through OBE, the Marxist dialectic, and Transformational Teaching. This is all locked in by computer assessment and computer cybernation. Its aim is to provide a workforce for a Soviet-style planned economy for global servants.
 
 *********************************************************************
 
THE COMPUTER ACCOUNTABILITY CONTROL SYSTEM USED FOR COMMON CORE IS NOT NEW. NOR ARE COMMON STANDARDS NEW. THEY WERE INSTALLED IN THE STATES WITH FEDERAL MONEY IN THE 70'S AND 80'S.
 
Common Core Standards are just the latest standards funneled into this air-tight system.
 
ONE CANNOT GET RID OF COMMON CORE OR "EFFECTIVE" TEACHING WITHOUT GETTING RID OF THE SYSTEM THAT LOCKS IT IN.
 
 *********************************************************************
 
IF BISHOPS SAY THEY REJECT COMMON CORE, YOU MUST READ THEIR CURRICULUM GUIDES. I HAVE FOUND AT LEAST THREE DIOCESES REJECTING "COMMON CORE", BUT THEIR CURRICULUM GUIDES EITHER CALL DIRECTLY FOR COMMON CORE OR THEY ARE RIDDLED WITH "EFFECTIVE" TEACHING WHICH EMBODIES THE COMMON CORE SYSTEM.
 
 *********************************************************************
 
In addition to textbooks, tests and assessments, there are:
 
Accrediting Agencies for private, Christian, and Catholic schools which require that "Effective" Teaching be applied to classroom instruction. (Such as AdvancED)
 
Another factor linking Common Core to private schools is government funding through equitable distribution, which I believe has definite Common Core strings attached.
 
 *********************************************************************
 
There are still more threats to Catholic, Christian and Public education:
 
In 2008 Louis Gerstner, Former Chief Executive of IBM, called on Obama for national standards for a core curriculum.
 
He went on to say:
 
"...I recommend that President-elect Barack Obama convene a meeting of our nation's governors and seek agreement to the following:
 
"Abolish all local school districts save 70 (50 states; 20 largest cities). Some states may choose to leave some of the rest as community service organizations, but they would have no direct involvement in the critical task of establishing standards, selecting teachers, and developing curricula." (see references)
 
Does this say Digital Cyber-Computer Education for all with centralized control and the end of textbooks? How will you know what your child is being taught, or what personal information might be gathered?
 
SINCE THEN HUNDREDS UPON HUNDREDS OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS, AS WELL AS CATHOLIC SCHOOLS, HAVE BEEN CLOSED. WHEN PUBLIC SCHOOLS CLOSE, FUNDS HAVE BEEN ALLOCATED TO OPEN CHARTER SCHOOLS. CHARTERS ARE PUBLIC SCHOOLS RUN BY NON-ELECTED BOARDS SO LOCAL CONTROL IS LOST. RACE-TO-THE-TOP, ARNE DUNCAN, AND OBAMA HAVE CALLED FOR INCREASED CHARTER OPENINGS.
 
ACCORDING TO DIANE RAVITCH, INNER-CITY CATHOLIC SCHOOLS CLOSE WHEN CHARTERS OPEN.
 
IN SOME INSTANCES, COMPACTS ARE FORMED AMONG PUBLIC, CHARTER, AND PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS, THUS SPELLING THE LOSS OF LOCAL VOTER CONTROL, AND PERHAPS CHRISTIAN IDENTITY.
 
IN MANY OF THESE TYPE OF PLANS, THE CONTROL IS TRANSFERRED TO MAYORS WHO APPOINT THEIR OWN BOARDS. THERE ARE MANY VARIATIONS OF THIS SCENARIO. INNER CITY CATHOLIC SCHOOLS ARE JOINING THESE COMPACTS WITH THE HELP OF FOUNDATIONS LIKE THE MELINDA AND BILL GATES AND THE WALTON FOUNDATIONS.
 
IT IS MY SUSPICION THAT ALL OF THESE CATHOLIC SCHOOLS MUST SUBSCRIBE TO COMMON CORE. THE ARCHDIOCESE OF BOSTON'S INNER CITY SCHOOLS JOINED ONE OF THESE COMPACTS AND NOW THERE IS COMMON CORE IN THESE SCHOOLS. WON'T THAT INCUR DATA GATHERING ON CATHOLIC STUDENTS? I DETAIL THIS IN MY THIRD REPORT.
 
ONE OF THE MAJOR, MAJOR ORGANIZATIONS IMPLEMENTING THESE KINDS OF COMPACTS AND SCHOOL REOGANIZATION DESIGNS IS THE CENTER FOR REINVENTING PUBLIC EDUCATION (CRPE).
 
The CRPE is funded by the Gates Foundation, Carnegie Foundation, Walton Foundation, Broad Foundation, Annie B. Casey Foundation, National Alliance for Charter Schools, U. S. Department of Education, and more.
 
I will use the CRPE's plan, IMPLEMENTED BY THE CEE-TRUST, for Missouri as an example of how these organizations are spreading their innovations across our nation to "reinvent both public and private education."
 
CEE-Trust's policy makers are CRPE and the Fordham Institute.
 
THE CEE-TRUST, FUNDED BY THE GATES FOUNDATION, THE JOYCE FOUNDATION, AND THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR ADVANCEMENT TEACHING, HAS BEEN CONTRACTED BY THE MISSOURI DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TO FORMULATE A PLAN TO REORGANIZE OUR NON-ACCREDITED SCHOOLS IN KANSAS CITY AND ST. LOUIS. IT CAN ALSO BE APPLIED TO NEIGHBORING DISTRICTS OR ANY SCHOOL DISTRICT IN MISSOURI.
 
I believe this proposal is just one of many radical blueprints to destroy public and eventually private schools by setting up Community Education. In this plan, all power resides in non-elected officials. Local school districts are replaced by Community School Offices with an appointed advisory board. Local school boards are dissolved. (Maybe someday to be restored but with a very different venue.)
 
The plan, entitled the Conditions for Success, allows private schools to become "operators" under the umbrella of the Community Schools Office. Public school funds follow the student so he or she can choose ANY school, community or private, as long as the school is religion-neutral and submits to the non-elected authority of the Community School Office.
 
Other proposals Include:
 
Personalized Instruction, a longer school day, a longer school year by 50 or more days, and enforced Pre-K.
 
This plan specifies "Selective Admission Schools", which appear to be elite schools for the brightest of students. Apparently, they will be given a superior education, but with the global Common Core spin. These schools will only be a very small fraction of the total community schools.

In 1987 Thomas Sticht, with the National Institute of Education, said:
 
"Many companies have moved operations to places with cheap, relatively poorly educated labor. What may be crucial, they say, is the dependability of a labor force and how well it can be managed and trained, not its general educational level, although a small cadre of highly educated creative people is essential to innovation and growth. Ending discrimination and changing values are probably more important than reading in moving low income families into the middle class." (deliberate dumbing down of america. p. 216)
 
Are we now dumbing down the masses with Common Core for a reliable labor force, while giving a cadre of select students a real education, all in the name of equality and social justice?
 
 *********************************************************************
 
This ties right into Missouri HB 1357 entitled Student Study Plans. You might look for a similar bill being introduced in your state. Here's a quote from the summary:
 
"This bill requires every student to develop, in conjunction with his or her parent or guardian and the school district, a personal plan of study before the end of his or her sixth grade year. The district must adopt all necessary policies to implement a comprehensive guidance and counseling program focusing on specified areas at the various grade levels... with the goal of ensuring that each student is career ready after completing technical training, college, or other necessary training required for a student's chosen career.....Each plan must cover eight years or until the student has reached his or her postsecondary goals..."
 
Compare that to a statement by Rep. Henry Hyde regarding the School-To-Work Act of 1994:
 
'When carried to its logical extreme, it chooses careers for every American worker. Children’s careers will be chosen for them by Workforce Development Boards and federal agencies at the earliest possible age …Statewide Workforce Development Boards have formed to study which labor skills are needed in each state to determine “human resources” training requirements. Of course, this will decide also where these human resources will reside." (http://www.wnd.com/2004/12/27895/)
 
 *********************************************************************
 
CHOICE
 
In light of all the above what are the effect of Choice and innovative compacts on Christian schools? COMMON CORE and Government Control!
 
We know now from an article by Cato Institute that Indiana VOUCHERS are requiring that non-public schools follow many of the testing, reporting, and academic requirements of public schools. Indiana has halted Common Core, but what about their current standards, the system, testing, and assessments?
 
Discontentment seems to be growing over the fact that private schools receive state funding with NO ACCOUNTABILITY. Accountability would mean testing and assessing of private school students to assure that government money is used to attain what ever state goals are prescribed by individual states.
 
There are now 16 or 17 states that have some sort of variation of agreements that allow for TUITION TAX CREDITS (TTCs), even though only one state has enacted such laws. The reason why only one state has embraced TTCs is the concerns about accountability and the financial impact. (public schools funds deferred to private school students.)
 
Tuition Tax programs are being installed in states across the country, and are able to by-pass state legislation. One such example here in Missouri is the proposed Children's Education Initiative.
 
CHILDREN'S EDUCATION INITIATIVE
 
Please take the time to read the initiative. If there are enough signatures it will be placed on the Missouri November, 2014 ballot.
 
This Initiative amends our Missouri Constitution to allow for Tuition Tax Credits. (TTCs) Missouri is not a TTCs state. This initiative can establish these credits in the state with no legislative approval.
 
There will be $90 million dollars in available tax credits with possible annual increases.
 
Donors get a 50% tax write-off on their state taxes. Doesn't that mean that either the State's revenues funds or the Public school fund will be shorted by that amount?
 
The 2014 Missouri state school funding formula, which is prescribed by the State Budget is already $620 million dollars short.
 
Under this plan, the majority of the funds will go to public schools. Why would Christians want to support secular public schools with their Common Core agenda and offensive sexual curriculum which is totally opposed to Christian teaching?
 
There is a stipulation that public schools can reject funds, but there is no stipulation that non-public schools can reject the funds. Will private schools be forced into Choice with accountability strings?

(EDITOR'S UPDATE: THIS INITIATIVE  FAILED)
 
 *********************************************************************
 
Bear in mind:
 
All students, Christian, Catholic and Public, must be in the national data banks and eventually in the global data banks of UNESCO to insure global one-world control and transformation. How can the planners get faith-based schools into their data banks? THROUGH GOVERNMENT FUNDED CHOICE COUPLED WITH ACCOUNTABILITY.
 
I believe that when there are enough Catholic and Christian schools partaking of "Choice" money, there will be legislation, an Executive order, or a Federal Register entry that will mandate accountability. This is already being called for in Florida legislation and now Wisconsin. Who knows how many other states. We also need to keep a close eye on the reauthorized ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) as it is currently being revised and finalized in Congress. The House version has Choice amendments which could be very serious. In addition, Senator Lamar Alexander (Tn.) just introduced a bill for expansive funding of Choice.
 
Once accountability for Choice is mandated, if Christian schools reject government funds, they will probably have to close or become Charter schools. If they continue to accept government funding they would lose their Christian Identity. Choice is destructive to public education and a lose-lose situation for Christian education.
 
 *********************************************************************
 
WHAT'S NEXT FOR FAITH BASED SCHOOLS? THROUGH CHOICE MONEY WILL THEY GO FROM CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS TO GOVERNMENT RUN SCHOOLS, AND THEN, LIKE PLANS FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS, FINALLY BE ABSORBED INTO THE COMMUNITY SCHOOL OFFICES?
 
IT CAN HAPPEN IF WE LET IT!
 
MAY GOD BLESS AND SAVE OUR CHILDREN.
 
 *********************************************************************
 
"Every lover of human freedom ought to oppose with all his might the giving of Federal aid to the schools of this country; for Federal aid in the long run inevitably means Federal control, and Federal control means control by a centralized and irresponsible bureaucracy, and control by such a bureaucracy means the death of everything that might make this country great. Against this soul-killing collectivism in education, the Christian school, like the private school, stands as an emphatic protest. In doing so, it is no real enemy of public schools. On the contrary, the only way in which a state-controlled school can be kept even relatively healthy is through the absolutely free possibility of competition by private schools and church schools; if it once becomes monopolistic, it is the most effective engine of tyranny and intellectual stagnation that has yet been devised." Dr. J. Gresham Machen, Professor of New Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pa., 1933

RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT #2 UPDATED!!!

CALL! CALL! CALL! CALL! CALL! CALL!

SHUT DOWN THE CAPITAL SWITCHBOARD WITH YOUR "NO WAY ESEA" CALLS.
202-224-3121

Grassroots activists KILLED HR 5 last February, 2015. You can do the same thing again with ALL these bills, but you have to CALL, CALL, CALL.

Rep. Kline's HR 5, Sen. Alexander's S.1177, Sen. Patty Murray's S.1380, and Sen. David Vitter's Student Privacy Protection Act. 

MUST LISTEN TO ISERBYT/RENSE INTERVIEW WHICH COVERS THE COMMUNIST LEGISLATIVE AGENDA BEING IMPLEMENTED RIGHT NOW!
http://rense.gsradio.net:8080/rense/special/rense_Iserbyt_061515.mp3

All of these bills are part and parcel of the Soviet/Chinese Communist lifelong Community Education Agenda under unelected council form of government (Regionalism/UN Agenda 21).

These bills call for tax-funded school choice/charter schools with unelected boards,without which the lifelong communist workforce training system cannot be implemented.

NO AMENDMENTS, NO CHANGES CAN CLEAN UP THIS RED MESS.

All of these bills emanate from the U.S. Department of Education which is an UNCONSTITUTIONAL entity and must be abolished!


THE ONLY GAME-CHANGING LEGISLATION WOULD BE BILLS TO ABOLISH THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND TO PROHIBIT ANY FEDERAL FUNDING TO THE LOCAL LEVEL RELATED TO HEALTH, MENTAL HEALTH, HUMAN SERVICES, LABOR (SCHOOL TO WORK), AND DATA COLLECTION.

Such legislation would CUT THE UMBILICAL CORD with the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and  Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Office of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Paris, France, both of which are actively engaged in implementing the totalitarian global/international communist system, aka WORLD GOVERNMENT/NEW WORLD ORDER. 

From Politico:

NCLB LULL NEARING AN END? Education policy watchers rejoice - No Child Left Behind could be headed to the Senate floor as early as the end of the week. "We're hoping so. If not then beginning of next week," said Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.). "I think we'll do a good job - and hopefully we'll get a lot of Democratic votes, too." Isakson said parts of the Senate bill will appeal to conservatives, including opt out provisions and language blocking the federal government from interfering with the Common Core. Senate HELP Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander is expecting several conservative amendments to the bill, but wouldn't say whether he's offering his school voucher proposal when it hits the Senate floor. Expect Democrats to call for stronger accountability provisions. "I didn't think the bill that came out of the committee was a great civil rights bill," said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.). "We've got to do more to require states to act" when it comes to low-performing schools. Murphy said he thinks some accountability changes could gain bipartisan support.

ALERT: ABCs BLOG IS BACK!!!

SWAN SONG REACTION

(1)  CHANGE IN PLANS FOR BLOG

(2)  100% EMPHASIS ON COMMUNIST LIFELONG COMMUNITY EDUCATION

(3)  PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL YOUR LISTS!

Having received many, many  distressed messages regarding my Swan Song, I have changed my game plan as follows:

ABCS will post only occasionally (max. once a week?) to alert blog readers regarding votes pending on very, very dangerous "family/freedom-busting" education, human services, and workforce training bills, such as Rep. John Kline's HR 5, Sen. Alexander's S1177, Sen. Murray's S1380 (birth to age 5), and Sen. David Vitter's Student Privacy Act.
 
Blog will be using information primarily from Congressional offices, Politico, and Nelson Mullins websites.
 
And, from time to time, on a very limited basis, blog will post major works of established/published/ long-time education researchers.
 
Blog will continue to provide research related specifically to most important all-encompassing legislation (above) all of which, in whole or in part, are related to lifelong communist community (hub) education (all services, including health and mental health brainwashing, and communist planned economy workforce training provided under unelected school council). Don't ever forget the National Alliance of Business mid-1990s letterhead calling for "Kindergarten to Age 80 Workforce Training".  Does that mean YOU?
 
[Please scroll down to bottom of this post for excerpt from major study by Feld and Wilson,1981, related to Communist Community Education.]
 

 
The following paragraphs are excerpted from their dynamite study:
 
"Contemporary community education in the Soviet Union can be traced back to the efforts of an early twentieth century pedagogue, A.S. Makarenko...Makarenko's "Gorky Commune" was a rehabilitation program for some hundreds of homeless youths who were roaming the Soviet Union after the civil wars. The philosophy behind his program focused on the fact that the parent's authority over a child is only delegated to him by the community (State) and further, duty to one's children is merely a particular duty toward the greater community...The family was secondary to the community."
 
"Community Education is a philosophical concept and a pragmatic reality that has permeated Soviet Society."
(Larry C. Helms, Regional Schools Superintendent for Yukon, Alaska) sometime in the early seventies.
 
WITHOUT ACCEPTANCE OF PHONY TAX-FUNDED SCHOOL CHOICE/CHARTERS WITH THEIR  "UNELECTED BOARDS", COMMUNIST COMMUNITY EDUCATION CANNOT BECOME THE 'POLITICAL SYSTEM GAME CHANGER' FOR AMERICA.
 
 

SO....STOP TAX-FUNDED SCHOOL CHOICE/CHARTERS WITH UNELECTED BOARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
*********************************************************************
 

Those reading this post are part of a "faceless army", hopefully of millions, whose role is to bombard Congress whenever they (you) receive an alert from this Blog.
 

America depends on YOU to save the greatest experiment in human freedom in the history of mankind. 
 
Never forget YOU (GRASSROOTS) KILLED Rep. Kline's HR 5 last February, 2015.

 
HR 5 was the first freedom-killing bill and was followed by the other three bills mentioned above.
 

YOU KILLED HR 5,  Republican Rep. Kline's  Student Success Act. YOU CAN KILL ALL THE OTHER BILLS!
 
HR 5 was the shot over the bow of the ship called "American Freedom".
 
And that shot missed its mark, thanks to YOU!

BACKGROUNDER ON COMMUNITY EDUCATION (HUB OF COMMUNITY MODEL:  aka HILARY CLINTON'S "IT TAKES A VILLAGE...")
 
Community Education movement goes  back to the 1930s and is international and COMMUNIST.
 
Community education is now referred to as the HUB OF COMMUNITY MODEL, and it is going in all over the country.  You may not recognize it.  This blog's continued role will attempt to help you identify it in your community.
 
Click on following Georgia Visions Project as just one example, out of hundreds (thousands?) going in all over the country,  of this lifelong communist (Community Education) model:
 
 
 
(3)  Excerpts from the deliberate dumbing down of america, 1999... Community-Centered Schools www.deliberatedumbingdown.com website (free download). Appendix I, pages  A-5-A-6:
 
"Community-Centered Schools: The Blueprint, Montgomery County, Maryland Schools, as proposed by Dr. Nicholaus L. Engelhardt and Associates Consultants, and written by Dr. Walter D. Cocking
(New York City: April 1, 1946).  This was probably the most important blueprint for the nation, although The Hawaii Master Plan[see 1969] certainly follows in its footsteps. Dr. Paul Mort's statements below is right on target.  It took exactly fifty years to implement "The Blueprint" in every school of the nation.  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.
 
The task of the teacher of the future is a greatly different task than that which teachers usually performed in the past. The fundamental equipment expected of the teacher of yesterday was knowledge of the subject he taught. Modern education demands teachers who are acquainted by experience as well as by study with our democratic society and who participate actively in the life of the community. They have a broad cultural background and an understanding of world conditions. Teacher educational institutions have not prepared teachers to do these things. Prior emphasis has been upon subject matter and method."
 
One of the nation's  finest longtime education researchers, who attended a Community Education (C.E.) conference in Washington, D.C. in the early nineteen seventies, reported that the C.E. facilitator leading the conference said:
 
"Community Education can be likened to the Chinese Communist (Soviet) system."
 
For those who do not understand this very dangerous concept/movement, please, please, please, please click on the following link for  Exposing the Global Road to Ruin through Education Written Submissions http://www.deliberatedumbingdown.com/OtherPDFs/Written%20Submissions.pdf and read "An Expose: Community Education" by Ruth Feld and Jill Wilson, 1981, pages 43-72. 
 
Here are just a few important quotes from the beginning of this remarkable document.
 
OVERVIEW
 
Community Education is a process, a concept of  integrating physical and human resources in a new dimension. It coordinates and promotes existing community service programs in an effort to develop the "whole person" through its lifelong education programs. It is geared not to perpetuate a culture but to transform it from one of "individualism" to one of "group decision-making"; from American sovereignty to that of a global one-mindedness; from Christian values to that of humanistic tenets; from local control of education to that of federally mandated legislation dissolving all parental rights and God-given responsibilities.
 
Community education is a scheme, a sinister plot to re-socialize and restructure Americans and their way of life, with the social behaviorists using the public schools as their lever to gain control over the populace. It is a "master concept of the future" with its preconceived goals for behavioral changes on a mass scale throughout the world.  
 
Community education is a device for bringing in all federal-and-state-funded social services in a "cradle to grave" context, with the schools being used as the vehicle for implementation. Many different agencies will direct the education process, leaving elected school boards with little or no authority. All children will automatically be wards of the state and of the behavioral scientists.
 
 
Community education is "Big Brotherism" with the government doing our thinking for us -- because "it knows best" whether we like it or not!
 

The final objective of community education is for everyone to be made totally dependent upon the government for all our needs, decision-making, recreation, health, etc., with the ultimate goal being that all "human resources" will be dedicated, unswervingly, to serving and being served by society. Loyalty to family, church and community will be replaced by loyalty to the Community Center, society and the world. We will be mere puppets of society."
 
[Comment from Charlotte regarding the above paragraph starting with "The final objective...": 
 
Will the tragic economic meltdown taking place in our nation today ultimately lead good Americans into this communist control net, seeking, in desperation, all the services they no longer can financially provide for themselves and their families? 
 
This is the Hegelian Dialectic in action:  Create problem, people scream, impose solution which citizens would never have accepted, had they not, unknowingly, become a part of the planned dialectic.]
 
[Further comment from Charlotte regarding the following dynamite quote, which should help you convince your friends and neighbors that they MUST get in the battle to save our children, families, and country.
 
Under countries involved in Community Education, is listed "the Soviet Union". The following quote is taken out of the mouth of an American community educator working in Alaska, sometime in the nineteen seventies:
 
"Contemporary community education in the Soviet Union can be traced back to the efforts of an early twentieth century pedagogue, A.S. Makarenko...Makarenko's "Gorky Commune" was a rehabilitation program for some hundreds of homeless youths who were roaming the Soviet Union after the civil wars. The philosophy behind his program focused on the fact that the parent's authority over a child is only delegated to him by the community (State) and further, duty to one's children is merely a particular duty toward the greater community...The family was secondary to the community. When the needs and values of the family conflicted with those of the greater community, there was no question which receives priority...expressed purpose is to develop persons who possess the ability, expertise and motivation to obtain the preset community goals and objectives....The activities in each of the organizations closely parallel the activities in a typical American community school. In some cases the organizations called "Palaces of Culture" or "Pioneer Palaces" are erected to house the community education activities...In essence, the community in the Soviet Union utilizes educational opportunities as a means to further the development of its human resources. Community Education is a philosophical concept and a pragmatic reality that has permeated Soviet Society.   (Larry C. Helms, Regional Schools Superintendent for Yukon, Alaska)"]

SWAN SONG


SWAN SONG FROM CHARLOTTE

Hello on May 16, 2014...
Goodbye on June 7, 2015

The lifespan for my research blog http://abcsofdumbdown.blogspot.com/ was always intended to be no more than one year. In looking back through the many posts (an average of one (+) a day) I see that the goal of providing key research, mostly from the deliberate dumbing down of america, 1999, and the Updated/Abridged 2011 version, and connecting that documented research with current education news, has been accomplished.

The blog archives (all posts) will remain at the site so please take advantage of that resource in your activism at the local, state, and national levels.

Let me thank all who have submitted education news for me to use, including finished posts, for their enormous contribution to making abcsofdumbdown the “go-to-blog” for research and education news.

Votes pending on very, very dangerous “family/freedom-busting” education bills (Rep. John Kline’s HR 5,  Senator Alexander’s S1177, Sen. Murray’s S1380 (birth to age 5), and Sen. David Vitter's Student Privacy Protection Act... have prompted me to offer the remaining 100 Exposing the Global Road to Ruin through Education disc sets to you FREE with exception of $12 S&H. [The set sells for $39.95 plus shipping at Amazon.] Go to Amazon.com for disc set information and for 100% 5-Star reviews.
http://www.amazon.com/Exposing-Global-Road-Through-Education/dp/0985553847
 
Please take advantage of this very special offer, and arrange to show the discs
at meetings in your community set up to generate opposition to the above very dangerous pieces of legislation and whatever other equally dangerous legislation is scheduled to come down the pike!

Free disc set order (only one per person!) including your name and address and check for $12 (S&H) made out to 3D Research Co., should be sent to 3D at 519 River Road, Dresden, ME 04342.  First come/first served!

The 8-dvd video and cd (Written Submissions) disc set Exposing the Global Road to Ruin through Education includes 18 presentations, at two conferences (2012 ME and 2013 GA) by  leading American education activists, writers, researchers and public school teachers/administrators, some involved since the 1960s. The late Samuel Blumenfeld delivers a “knockout” presentation related to “Look Say” and “Whole Language” reading instruction designed to deliberately create an illiterate society. The one cd (Written Submissions by prominent education researchers, some of whom are no longer with us) is itself worth the price of the 8-disc set!

The extraordinary grassroots efforts to kill Rep. John Kline's HR 5 resulted in it being tabled last February, 2015. Kline did not have enough votes.  Grassroots efforts have, we believe, once more, delayed the full Senate vote on Alexander's bill.  Interesting, since we were initially told this legislation was a high priority for Alexander.  Keep calling, keep calling...on Kline’s HR 5, Alexander’s S1177, Sen. Murray's HR 1380 and Sen. David Vitter's Student Privacy Protection Act.

You killed the Kline bill last February!!!!  You can kill whatever freedom-destroying bills come down the pike.  Simply get on the phone: 202-224-3121

URGENT ACTION ALERT! AMERICAN FAMILIES UNDER ATTACK

For those who want  to delve deeper into the “Who, Where, Why, How, When” of the 3D, they can go to my original the deliberate dumbing down of america...

LAST MESSAGE FROM CHARLOTTE:

THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE FACING OUR COUNTRY WHICH WE SHOULD BE
ADDRESSING BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE IS THE DANGEROUS CALL FOR TAX-FUNDED PRIVATE SCHOOL CHOICE/CHARTERS WITH UNELECTED BOARDS.

WHY? 

IF AMERICANS ACCEPT THE CONCEPT OF UNELECTED CONTROL OVER EDUCATION, WHICH IS NO. 1 IN SPENDING, ABOVE EVEN DEFENSE, WHAT IS TO KEEP THEM FROM ACCEPTING UNELECTED CONTROL OF EVERYTHING ELSE?

ONCE WE HAVE LOST OUR RIGHT TO VOTE, WE WILL HAVE NO SAY OVER ANYTHING:

NOT ABORTION
NOT GUNS
NOT LAND USE/PRIVATE PROPERTY
NOTHING

LEGISLATION (SOME BILLS LISTED ABOVE) CALLS FOR TAX-FUNDED SCHOOL CHOICE/CHARTERS WITH UNELECTED BOARDS.

(TAX-FUNDED PRIVATE SCHOOL CHOICE IS “NO” CHOICE.  WHAT THE GOVERNMENT FUNDS, THE GOVERNMENT CONTROLS.)
THIS IS TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION .

WE FOUGHT AND WON THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR OVER THIS ISSUE.

GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES!

GOD BLESS AMERICA!
