0292_Corruption at the Highest Levels of the FBI and DOJ _ by Donna Garner _ The mainstream media is censoring out what doesn’t fit their narrative _ as do the public schools _ Tweet all members of Congress #ReleasetheMemo

Censorship and distortion of truth in K-12 schools …

The foundation for the political illiteracy in our country begins in the public schools, but it continues to be spread in our colleges and universities — and through the mainstream media and Hollywood.

Why are they focusing on “government shutdown” rather than real news?
We are in the midst of an attempted coup
(illegal seizure of power from a government).

Light is being shed on an excessive amount of corruption at high places in our government. At the same time, there is a total blackout of the truth in the mainstream media and among all those in compliance.

The “shut down” is a diversion.  This year the proposed budget has everything the democrats want except chain migration.  And they don’t want the building of the wall (which is meant to protect our borders).

Why are democrats in Congress, the mainstream media, the schools in this country, colleges, universities and Hollywood totally ignoring the real corruption – and instead making up false accusations?

Donna Garner points out the seriousness of all this.

From the article below by Donna Garner:   “This is the type of thing that the KGB or some Third World country does – not America!”  http://www.educationviews.org/release-the-memo-corruption-at-the-highest-levels-of-the-fbi-and-doj/

[Note:  Hard evidence has been coming to light in recent weeks.  It is taking a long time for it to be revealed, because of obstruction.]

0291_Jan. 1, 2018_DeVos’ Speech on Education Reform_ The Good, The Bad, and the Incomplete_ Jane Robbins, Emmett McGroarty excerpts _Common Core _ ESSA

Jane Robbins and Emmett McGroarty say U.S. Department of Education
Secretary Betsy DeVos is missing the obvious

Jane Robbins and Emmett McGroarty sent out an article, part of which is in this blog post.

In their article they point out that DeVos recommends making all learning individualized, with each student in front of a computer, possibly at home.

Jane and Emmett point out that:  “so-called personalized learning is actually depersonalized, computerized training rather than genuine education.

Robbins and McGroarty suggest Betsy DeVos improve education by:

(1) freeing the states from all federal mandates to the extent she can under the law; (2) working with Congress to revise ESSA to eliminate all mandates; and (3) creating a workable plan to shut down her department.”  (The U.S. Department of Education)

Editorial comment – more needs to be done: 

There also needs to be a change in the content of what is taught in schools, and how students are being taught in schools — changing from Type #2 education, and returning to Type #1 education.  [Type #1 and Type #2 education are discussed on the Home Page of this website, and in blogs:  0005, 0091, and 0247]

Teachers need to be taught to teach, rather than being trained and forced to be facilitators and baby-sitters, spying and reporting on students, parents and other teachers.

Information on ESSA (Every Child Succeeds Act)

ESSA (Every Child Succeeds Act) codified individual data tracking, social, emotional, behavioral and attitude standards and interventions, and a lot more:   0252, 0248, 0244, 0206, 0205, 0097

ESSA didn’t change some of what was already going on in many schools, but since it became federal law in December 2015, it has been officially forcing every school to comply.

0289_ Jan 9, 2018_ Should Americans Accept the College Board’s Deformed History of Europe?–by Peter W. Wood–The Federalist_Links to related blog pieces on this site

January 11, 2018

In 2013 the Advanced Placement presented a radical revision of the Framework of AP US History (APUSH).  After an outcry across the country, they claimed to have fixed the problems.  Actually they never changed anything, except some insignificant details, in the Framework.  The same tests would have to be given, and the books and resources were not changed.

At the time, Jefferson County (Colorado) School Board Member Julie Williams was treated like an idiot and censor, when she pointed out the truth about the new APUSH Framework and the accompanying course.  She wanted a citizen committee (not made up of people who had a vested interest in the school district) – to review the curriculum and report to the School Board.   Hysteria broke out, and the paid agitators began screaming “censor.”

Just like with the APUSH, the AP European History (APEH) is: “cultural Marxism, identity politics, and history as the unfolding of progressive ideals.”  — quote from the end of this article.

Find at the end of this blog links to other blog pieces about this issue.

In 2013 – 2015, the Advanced Placement U.S. History (APUSH) Framework and course were in the spotlight – The current efforts to change AP European History are a replay of the APUSH changes that were made in 2015.

 “Should Americans Accept The College Board’s Deformed History of Europe?”
By Peter W. Wood, President of National Association of Scholars (NAS)
http://thefederalist.com/2018/01/09/americans-make-peace-college-boards-deformed-history-europe/

 The American Enterprise Institute’s Frederick Hess and Grant Addison writing at National Review Online give the National Association of Scholars (NAS) credit for pointing out flaws in the College Board’s Advanced Placement European History (APEH) framework. But Hess and Addison are concerned that, after the College Board responded to our critique by making changes, NAS has continued to find significant fault with APEH.

 This is familiar territory. A few years ago, NAS drew national attention to flaws in the College Board’s premiere AP framework, the one for U.S. history (APUSH). That framework had stood untouched for decades until the College Board issued a radical revision 2013. The College Board brushed off our criticisms for six months, but as pressure mounted decided in early 2015 that APUSH could stand some improvement. Continue reading

From Roberta’s letter:  “All of this is not BECAUSE Trump was elected, but his election has REVEALED what already existed.  The hatred and anti-Americanism was already there, . . . ”

The hateful supplemental material (Educator Resources) — recently recommended by Superintendent Jason Glass, for K-12 teachers in Jefferson County (Colorado) Public Schools —  is only an expansion of what public school children have been fed for years (this includes the teaching of AP U.S. History in recent years).

Trump Era Chaos”
Letter by Roberta Sutton
_____________________________________________________

We’ve all noticed what chaos has emerged since Donald Trump’s election.

Right away there was a march of women against Trump who were wearing “Vagina Hats.”  There has been the surfacing of Antifa with their masked assailants, and their destruction and mayhem in Berkeley.  The NFL players have complaints about our police, and because of that, they  refuse to honor our nation and its flag and anthem.  All of them “attack” the President.

All of this is not BECAUSE Trump was elected, but his election has REVEALED what already existed.  The hatred and anti-Americanism was already there, but it was stirred up and brought to the fore because someone with a different belief than theirs was in charge—and Trump was going to be leading the nation in a different direction—one they didn’t agree with.

Our Jefferson County Colorado Public School District Superintendent (Jason Glass), is pushing a huge increase of Leftist, anti-American, anti-White, anti-family, hate-filled class resources onto all grades, K-12.  He is also pushing his own brand of new curriculum on K-12.  See his recommended list of class resources supposedly intended to eliminate hate:

Prager University has recently posted a video about the group from which Superintendent Glass has taken quite a bit of the content for his recommended resource list from — a list of resources he has recently sent out to all the K-12 teachers in our school district.

 “Bill Bennett Touts Trump Has More Conservative Cabinet Than Reagan”
By Dr. Susan Berry

 http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/10/13/bill-bennett-touts-trump-conservative-cabinet-reagan/

 Dr. Bill Bennett, secretary of education under President Ronald Reagan, told attendees at the Values Voter Summit Friday that President Donald Trump’s Cabinet is a “more conservative cabinet” than Reagan’s Cabinet was.

Bennett – now a radio host and author – specifically named current Education Secretary Betsy DeVos “my friend … who is fighting to empower parents,” as an example of conservatism, and defended her signature policy of school choice.

However, both Bennett and DeVos have come under fire from many conservative parents throughout America for their support – mentioned or otherwise – for the Common Core standards. The movement to eradicate the federally funded and supported Common Core has been led by one of the most significant “populist” grassroots efforts in decades.

As Breitbart News reported in 2014, Bennett drew the ire of anti-Common Core parents throughout the country after penning an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal that made a “conservative case for Common Core.”

 In his column, Bennett reiterated all the “talking points” of the pro-Common Core education establishment. His remarks – especially from one who served in Reagan’s Cabinet under a president who had desired to eliminate the U.S. Education Department (USED) – led to an uproar. Ultimately, Bennett admitted that public relations, lobbying, and business consulting firm DCI Group had paid him to write the column. Continue reading

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.

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

August 18, 2017

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
