The information below from Donna Garner is not simply going on in Texas.
“Education” is being abandoned for “Schooling” throughout our country. In the United States “schooling” is being completely standardized — forced on every student. It is a shift away from an “education” of equal opportunity through the learning of knowledge-based skills (reading, writing, science, history, math, etc.).
Rather than “opportunity” — planned equal “outcomes” are the goal. One of these “outcomes” is to program every child to change their world view from nationalism to globalism — support for a government-controlled economy — for a state-directed economy. Children are being made into “human capital” for those who plan to control and use them.
The 13-minute video of testimony linked below — is testimony by a mother explaining the attempts to manipulate the thinking of her daughter, using 21st Century Learning.

This is a must see — Alice Linahan’s short-but-fascinating testimony at the 8.3.16 Texas Senate Education Committee hearing — Using her own daughter’s experiences in a Texas public school classroom, Alice explains the disastrous consequences of the “21st century learning” agenda (e.g., collaboration, project-based learning, constructivism, Common Core-compliant methods).
