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.

0202_Why Isn’t Communism as Hated as Nazism — presented by Dennis Prager (video)

Donna Jack
May 4, 2017

Students in public  school are not taught the truth about Communism.

Quotes from this video:

“Until the left, and all the institutions influenced by the left, acknowledge how evil communism has been, we will continue to live in a morally confused world.

“In the meantime, all good people owe it to the victims of communism to learn what happened to them. Even worse than being murdered or enslaved is a world that doesn’t even know that you were.”

Dennis Prager presents this 5 minute 19 second (5:19) video.  (posted May 1, 2017).  You can link to the facts mentioned in the video – and at his site either view the transcript of the video — or you can download the transcript.

Below you can watch the video “Why Isn’t Communism as Hated as Nazism?”:

0201_Why Competency-based Education will Deepen America’s Education Crisis—by Jane Robbins

Donna Jack
May 4, 2017

Donna Garner forwarded this article across the country today.  Following are a few selections from the article.  You can link the article at:  http://thefederalist.com/2017/05/04/competency-based-education-will-deepen-americas-education-crisis/

Samples from Jane Robbins’
May 4, 2017 Competency-Based Education (CBE) article

“Our Choices: Minimum Competency Or Indoctrination. Some CBE proponents straightforwardly argue that education must be changed to focus less on instilling knowledge and more on training students in “twenty-first-century skills” such as creativity, communication, and collaboration.
Unencumbered by facts, the government can then establish its own definitions of what success looks like in those areas.”

“This is where CBE becomes much more dangerous than its predecessor OBE. Modern technology allows the training to be accomplished much more effectively, and with data-capture mechanisms that can literally reshape our children’s lives.”

“Slicing and Dicing Kids’ Minds for Market Digital learning uses interactive software to track the student’s every keystroke, and perhaps his psysiological reactions, to create a personal mind-map illustrating not just what the child knows but also how his brain works.  This is perfect for CBE.  Th Student can work his way through the different benchmarks at his own pace and have all his responses recorded and incorporated into an algorithm that shows where he is and where he’s likely to go.”

“According to the CEO of mind-mapper Knewton, the ed-tech companies will have so much data on each student that they can predict what he will do and tell him what he should do.  Few parents want the government (through the schools) to have this much information on their children, but of course, parents won’t be told how all this works.”

“CBE isn’t real education. It’s a mechanism for control. States must reject it.

Joseph Goebbels — propaganda minister

Joseph Goebbels’ quote is at the end of this blog —  it talks about making up a huge lie and repeating it over and over to manipulate people.  You can read it in quotation 26 on the Quotations page of this website.

Blacklisted by History, is a book written by M. Stanton Evans
— Below is a video in which Mr. Evans tells about his book.

This video link has a lot of information about Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies.  One of the things you will find in this YouTube, is a summary of things that have been made public in recent years — things that verify the extensive Communist infiltration in our government that Joe McCarthy was trying to expose to the public.

0173_UN has never been our friend_The UN-American United Nations by Steve Farrell_Charlotte Iserbyt (“Soviets in the Classroom”)

Donna Jack
February 9, 2017

The push for a Communist United States continues.
Ignore the laughter — this is real.

The United Nations was never a friend of the United States of America

Note:  See below the overwhelming Communist and Socialist membership of those who started the United Nations, and will see the continued Communist control
of the United Nations.

Note:  Alger Hiss is instrumental in the forming of the UN, and is its first Secretary General.  In previous and forthcoming blog pieces you will read of Alger Hiss in connection with Whittaker Chambers.  They were Soviet espionage agents (spies) who regularly transferred US secrets to Moscow.  They worked together, and they (and their wives) became close friends.

The following is taken from:
“The UN-American United Nations”
by Steve Farrell
http://www.sweetliberty.org/issues/un/unamerican.htm#.WJpqlPJauSp

Truth 1: The UN is no friend to American ideals.

  1. The UN’s Founders were known Communists

“If it’s true that the personality, purpose, and accomplishments of an organization are highly affected by its leadership, then membership in the United Nations spelled trouble from the start. Of the 17 individuals identified by the US State Department as having helped shape US policy leading to the creation of the United Nations, all but one were later identified as secret members of the Communist Party USA (3).

NOTE:  Democrats led the recounts – only to find there were more popular votes for Donald Trump.  But the real substantial voter fraud is in the democrat precincts where there are more votes than people registered — where dead people vote — where illegals vote (encouraged by President Obama to vote, and not fear getting caught, because there will be no prosecution if they vote illegally) — where voter machines reverse votes of republicans (I have witnessed this in past elections) — where republican ballots are pitched in the inner cities (a man told me of this when he voted several elections ago in an inner city – his ballot was put in the trash can before his very eyes) — where people are threatened with violence, if they vote “wrong”, etc.

0158_The First Thanksgiving – Rush Limbaugh in 2015 talking about his 1992 book “See I Told You So” – and what he learned about the Pilgrims and Thanksgiving–YouTube & transcript_Links to George Washington’s 1789 Innaugural Address_his Thanksgiving proclamation

November 24, 2016 – Thanksgiving Day – Revised Nov. 25, 2016 (6:41 pm)
Donna Jack

We spent Thanksgiving with one of our sons, his wife, and three children.  All our family gives thanks to our Lord for the blessings He has showered on the United States of America, and on each of us.

My three local grandchildren have been studying American history at home for several years.  sadly, most children who attend public schools and many private schools, are taught to hate the United States.  All my grandchildren (and their parents, aunts and uncles) love America.

Our three local grandchildren have a large American history library, which includes the Rush Revere American history books that Rush Limbaugh has written for chilcren (They  are enjoyable reading or listening for adults as well).  The first book in the series is a time-travel adventure leading up to, and including, the first Thanksgiving.

Following is a link to the collection of American History Rush Revere books:

The Further Adventures of Rush Revere: Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims / Rush Revere and the First Patriots / Rush Revere and the American Revolution / Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner

0140_Why to vote no on 3A and 3B_2016-08-8 –“The Latest Big Education Fad, Social-Emotional Learning [SEL], Is As Bad As It Sounds” By Jane Robbins–Townhall.com

Donna Jack
September 30, 2016/October 4, 2016 version

At this moment, in Jefferson County Colorado, the school district administration, superintendent, all 5 current school board members (who are all union-supported), the education unions, and “education experts”, are pushing for us to cough up more money in November.  They are mistaken to think that this will help or fix declining education.  3A and 3B ask us to finance their failing policies — and to expand them.

On this November’s ballot, VOTE NO ON 3A AND 3B.
— More money to the schools will only make worse
the serious problems we have in education.

WHAT SCHOOLS IN GENERAL ARE NOT TEACHING — WHY?

H.L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury in April 1924
that the aim of public education is not:

“…to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence… Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim… is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States… ”
[quotation 9 on the quotations page of this website]

Coordinated education

Worldwide, education has become a coordinated effort to control the minds and bodies of all people.  That has always been the goal under dictatorships (Marxism, Socialism, Communism, etc.)  The nature of dictatorships is to program the minds of adults and children (from birth to death) — in order to contain and manipulate them.

Schools, in general, are not teaching students

to be able: to read; to love reading; to write (in schools cursive is not in the national standards, and almost no printing is taught); to  be able to add, subtract, multiply and divide; to memorize the abc’s, math tables, names/dates . . .; to research outside the limited material that is  provided and recommended by school curriculum; to learn from history, including knowledge of of America’s founding; to learn to think independently and to communicate; to debate and defend positions logically; to learn about and discuss different faiths without condemnation of the faiths or condemnation of the people within the faiths, or those talking about the faiths (including Christianity and Judaism).

Schools in general are censoring what students can say about political philosophies (like Nazism, Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Republics, Democracies, Oligarchies, Monarchies) ….

WHY all the controlled censorship and carefully structured fabrication of false “history” that avoids basic U.S. History and avoids the U.S. Constitution and our Bill of Rights?  These were written to protect us from a tyrannical government.

0134_Bernnie Blesses Amendment 69 (Colorado Single-Payer Healthcare)–CO Treasurer Walker Stapleton email against it_Stapleton, Ritter and Hickenlooper agree it would be disastrous_link to resources

Donna Jack
September 11, 2016

Our Colorado State Treasurer, Walker Stapleton, has sent out an excellent letter and link that can be shared.  It is simple to read, and shows that the fight against Single-payer healthcare is something that goes beyond any party lines.  It is one more “Constitutional Amendment” that will devastate our budget, and funnel tax money away from necessary services to maintain the financial and physical health of people in Colorado.

Note:  children in schools will be told that Amendment 69 is a good things.  In general, federal/national curriculum teaches students to be socialists/collectivists.

See the end of this blog for links to other Blogs on this site about Amendment 69, or type in “Amendment 69” next to the spyglass at the top of this blog, and press “enter.”
