Colorado Representative Tim Leonard has done us a service, by alerting us to “abuse in the classroom” being expanded through “new” curriculum being imposed on all grades from K-12 — claiming to be in response to events at Charlottesville.  Our Jeffco Public Schools Superintendent justifies his unilateral imposition of the “new” curriculum, and says he is doing it because Jeffco Schools wants children to have an “authentic learning experience.”

In his September 28, 2017 letter, Superintendent Glass links to the Educator Resources for the new curriculum.   If you read through the resource guide, it is evident the children are being pushed to hate.  The curriculum and resources are from a destructive radical left-wing viewpoint.  EVERYTHING is hateful.  Teaching children to hate in the name of fighting hatred, is ridiculous.  Groups recommended as a resource, have an obvious left-wing bias that you can see on their websites – and the curriculum focuses on hate, negativity, and censorship.  Go to Blog 0261 on this website, for a video by Prager University, explaining who the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) is.

You can link to the Educator Resources document, which has live links to most of the groups being used for Superintendent Glass’ new curriculum content — and examples of their curriculum plans.  Note the international, not American, emphasis on some sites.

How do children learn to be kind and loving?

Children learn to be loving and kind by witnessing love and kindness — not by being shown  negative ugliness over and over every day.  Those behind this curriculum know exactly what they are doing!  They are conditioning our children through this curriculum (and all other curriculum that is like it), to hate and to act out their hatred — beginning in kindergarten.  [Note:  they have influence in preschool and day care as well.]

Subject: Fwd: Message to Jeffco Public Schools community regarding Charlottesville, VA

To some interested Jeffco Public School folks,

The message below was sent to me on 16 August as a parent of children in Jeffco public schools from the new Superintendent Jason Glass.  It informed me that he has decided to introduce new curriculum into the Jeffco schools in all grades in order to use the events at Charlottesville for an “authentic learning experience” for the children.

Twelve days later on 28 Aug, I was sent another more detailed message as a Jefferson County Legislator explaining the significant amount of interpretive information the Superintendent’s “curriculum and instructional team has pulled together for educators” regarding the violence.  I have included this email information for you as well.

Simply cut/copy/paste this article but add your own name and home address.  Then e-mail to Pres.

Dr. Kim Holmes will be speaking at Colorado Christian University (CCU) this coming Monday evening.  Over a year ago he wrote a book The Closing of the Liberal Mind:  How Groupthink and Intolerance Define the Left.  Groupthink and intolerance are what is “taught” in our society, through government schools and the media in general.  It has increasingly moved into law.

Our academic system in the United States is designed to keep students focused only on what the system wants them to know, or feel, or do.  They are not equipped to make their own decisions, but rather to carry out the wishes of the “education” system.

At the end of this blog piece, you can watch an early 2016  YouTube with Kim Holmes talking about his new book.

Two years, one month, and one week ago, on July 28, 2015, I posted my first blog on this website.

A listing of all the posts can be found in the Table of Contents — each entry in the Table of Contents has a link to the corresponding blog post.

The Home Page shows what is wrong with education —
and 
the most critical thing to understand
in order to reverse the decline in education today – and to save our nation.

How do we fix the rapid decline in the education of too many people who do not graduate, and too many who do graduate from High Schools, Colleges and Universities?

It is not the condition of the buildings and other facilities — it is not the talent and good intentions and dedication of highly trained and competent teachers, administrators, counselors, teacher librarians, and all the support staff — it is not the freedom to choose the school a child attends (especially if all schools have Type #2 education) — it is not the amount of interest of the parents, or of the students — it is not computerizing all education and gathering more and more data on children, families, teachers, etc. — it is not simply emphasis on certain subjects like sports, music, art, science, technology, mathematics, language arts, reading, writing — it is not focus on becoming a global citizen — it is not in forcing all students to accept everything that students do and believe (unless they are politically incorrect).  Standardizing all attitudes, values, beliefs and behaviors is not the answer, either — and training children to want to change their sexual identity will not improve education standards.

The thing that really matters is THE TYPE OF EDUCATION BEING TAUGHT IN THE CURRICULUM — THE CONTENT.  Type #2 education is taking over our country — to the detriment of everyone.  We need a shift back to Type #1.

0244_Mental Health Assessments or Standardized Testing? Lines Are Blurring — by Emmett Mc Groarty & Jane Robbins_5.25.17_SEL, ESSA

conversion of public schools from places of learning into therapeutic institutions for diagnosing and treating perceived social-emotional problems.

DESSA is there to rate students on their behaviors but then to offer intervention to improve their scores. Social awareness is one of the key competencies to ensure the students are aware and accepting of race and diversity.”

“too many public schools no longer focus on imparting academic knowledge. Rather, egged on by the federal government and private players, they consider children to be patients in need of treatment to dislodge personality characteristics that don’t match the government’s preferred profile.”

“Mental Health Assessments or Standardized Testing? Lines Are Blurring.” – by Emmett McGroarty

This piece was co-authored by Jane Robbins, an attorney and senior fellow at the American Principles Project.

In The Wall Street Journal recently, New Hampshire physician Dr. Aida Cerundolo blew the whistle on faux mental-health assessment of public-school students in the Granite State. Some K-8 students are being subjected to blanket screening by untrained, unlicensed personnel, with serious questions about use or protection of the resulting records. And parents not only haven’t consented to this process, they haven’t even been told it’s happening. Continue reading
