Use this website for research, and resources.
This blog site has been in existence one year. I never imagined the work it would take: to begin learning how to use it, to design a workable format, to start posting, or to gather good information and keep writing regularly. Continuing to post regularly can encourage some people to return for more information. New blog posts appear at least every week or so (or more frequently). I aim for weekly.
The Table of Contents helps you easily navigate all the blog posts
In the Table of Contents, you can see the title of each blog, when it was posted, and click the title to get to the blog post.
One of the frustrations I had almost immediately was this: I would do a tremendous amount of research and work, post a blog, and then it was like all that work disappeared when I posted more blogs. It was impossible (even for me) to navigate the website. The Table of Contents easily presents, at least on a surface level, what is on the site, and where to find it.
I want to make it even more useful, but may not have the time to carry out that plan.
Why am I doing this website anyway? — to seek and share truth.
Too many people today have been conditioned to believe that truth is whatever you think it is — or what you are told it is. I know that truth does exist, and that truth is not relative. If you look around at the collapse of our society, the main reason for the collapse is the conditioning people have gone through to believe lies. People believe: “Truth is relative” — “truth is whatever you want it to be” — “what I believe and what you believe are equally valid” — “if you don’t believe in relative truth, you are wrong and need to be shut up.”
My main purpose is to keep seeking real truth, share what I find, share resources I have found, and hopefully encourage others to wake up, seek truth on their own and escape lies they have been told. Then they can help themselves and help others. Truth is freedom — lies are slavery.
More reasons for this site:
Encourage parents and care-givers to learn what is going on in the schools with their children, and if they don’t agree with the goals, get them out of the public schools. And if they agree with the goals of the public schools, I hope to present enough evidence to show them that the goals of public schools are wrong – not good for anyone.
NOTE: Charter schools are actually public schools – and they are required to comply with certain federal and school district testing, and other restrictions and regulations. Some charters think they are protecting their students by administering only the PARCC pre-tests — but those pre-tests are intentionally designed to gather extensive information on each individual student — information to be used against the individual student, to condition them in the future.
So a legitimate question is: why be in a charter school, if “they” still gather in charter schools, the information they want about each child? To save money? Possibly, in view of the consequences for your children being in public schools, the reason “to save money” may not be a good enough reason to choose charter schools. Government money in schools corrupts the schools.
Note also that the charters are muzzled from teaching all that they may want to teach – for instance, teaching a religious point of view is forbidden. Isn’t “what a person believes” the very foundation that determines who each person is, and what they then think and do the rest of their lives? [Actually one of the lies in the public schools is that religion is not taught. The truth is: religion IS taught in the public schools — just not Christianity and Judaism.]
Continue to shed light on the methods and goals of the schools, AFTER you pull your children out of the public schools. Protect them first. Pull them out, if you want to recognize them when they are adults.
Some reasons not to have students in public school
My post from yesterday, Blog 0120, discusses the sad state of public school — giving some reasons students should not be in public schools.
What spurred me on to do this site was the fact that I would come across information, find it useful, and would then lose it — never able to share it — and would have to start all over again — or I would work hard to present a program, or write an email, or send a letter, and never be able to use the material again without starting all over again.
That is no longer the case. This site is loaded with useful information, at my fingertips — and at your fingertips, if you learn how to use it.
This is a resource I can use
Nobody out there may be reading this information, but even if that is true, I have an easy resource to go to if I need information on things that others (and I) have researched. I can link to blog posts within the site and things outside my site (through my site), and not have to research and re-write it all over again. I can copy any link within the website, and send that live link in emails, Facebook, texts, etc. People can then go directly to that blog post or things linked within a blog post.
The site is not perfect, but it has INFORMATION!
You will find many errors in grammar and spelling and sentence structure — I have done my best, considering there are only 24 hours in a day — but I have had to keep moving forward. So please overlook the errors. With more time, each blog post would have been better.
Years ago I had lunch with an editor and an investigative reporter for a newspaper. They told me that you have to do research, write it quickly, and then let it go. There just isn’t time for perfection. Keep investigating and reporting.
How to navigate the site:
HOME PAGE –
Read on the Home Page two types of education –
THIS IS FOUNDATIONAL TO UNDERSTANDING
WHAT IS GOING ON IN SCHOOLING IN THIS COUNTRY, and
AROUND THE WORLD.
On the Home Page of this site, you will see a comparison of two types of education: Type #1 and Type #2. Understanding the difference between these two types of education, is the first step to understanding why our public education system is a mess, and why children are not learning to read, write, compute, research, analyze — think. The public schools follow Type #2 education. No matter how you improve school buildings, work harder, try different methods, get the best-trained and most excellent teachers — if you use Type #2 education you end up in the same place. “Same pig, different lipstick.”
Check out Gramma Grizzly’s Content linked on the Home Page of this website. In the Table of Contents you will find listed all the blog posts in this website. Each individual listing is a live link to the designated post.
Click on the blog post title or — then “Ctrl left click”– to open the link in a separate browser tab.
Or you can do a word search in the Table of Contents or within any individual blog post or within any page, and you can find the location of those words.
You will find the “Quotations” page interesting and informative, and can word search that page as well. Many of the quotations spell out clearly, in their own words, the goals of those who have taken control of our public schools in this country.
Two quotations and a link to Karen Bracken’s explanation of
what is going on in public education in this country, and in the world.
A transcript of her talk is also in Blog 0074.
[Karen Bracken used these two following quotations in her April 23, 2013
talk about Common Core: Subversive Threat to Education (Track 0074)]
“Give me four years to teach the children and the seeds I have sown will never be uprooted.”
Vladimir Lenin — (1870–1924) — founder of the Russian Communist Party, leader of the Bolshevik Revolution and architect and first head of the Soviet state.
“Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled, they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished. The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subject securely without the need of armies or policemen.”

THE SOURCE OF CONTROL OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND THE GOALS
John Taylor Gatto was “teacher of the year” in New York, in his school district, and in the entire state. His conscience would not longer let him continue teaching. He resigned when teacher of the year in New York State, with no savings, and having given up his retirement. He was determined to let people know what he had learned first-hand. His book Weapons of Mass Instruction is worth having and studying. That book is quoted from in the post linked below, where you can be introduced to John Taylor Gatto. Mr Gatto has written many other books. See some at: http://www.amazon.com/John-Taylor-Gatto/e/B001K7S0AE

She urged me to begin studying what Common Core is, and its goals. I then transcribed this YouTube, and you can link to that transcript. Deb will be on the November 2016 ballot in Colorado, to remain on the State Board of Education. She is one of our super heroes for getting back to local control and Type #1 education. She is one of the most intelligent, knowledgeable, and honorable people I have the privilege to know. She is a great speaker as well! See if she will speak for your group.|
