Chica­go char­ter schools import 474 Turk­ish Mus­lim teach­ers as 40k Amer­i­can teach­ers go unem­ployed,” pub­lished on Novem­ber 22, 2014, report­ed the lat­est antics of char­ter school oper­a­tors:

Hori­zon Sci­ence Acad­e­my in Bond Hill… employs sev­en for­eign teach­ers, most­ly from Turkey, brought to the U.S. on H-1B visas for jobs it says Ohio teach­ers are unqual­i­fied to fill.

Con­cept Schools, found­ed by fol­low­ers of a Turk­ish Islam­ic cler­ic seclud­ed in the Poconos, already is under fed­er­al and state scruti­ny for pos­si­ble irreg­u­lar­i­ties in teacher licens­ing, test­ing and tech­nol­o­gy con­tracts.

An Enquir­er inves­ti­ga­tion has found that Chica­go-based Con­cept Schools, which runs Hori­zon and 17 oth­er char­ter schools in Ohio, annu­al­ly imports dozens of for­eign teach­ers in num­bers that far sur­pass any oth­er school sys­tem in the state.

At least 474 for­eign teach­ers, again most­ly from Turkey, have arrived at Concept’s Ohio schools between 2005 and 2013. The schools are col­lect­ing about $45 mil­lion in state funds annu­al­ly to edu­cate 6,600 chil­dren in kinder­garten through high school.…

The Ohio Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion is weigh­ing com­plaints from for­mer Con­cept staffers that unli­censed, for­eign teach­ers were used.

Ohio teach­ers, mean­while, say plen­ty of qual­i­fied teach­ers are avail­able for jobs being filled by the for­eign­ers, espe­cial­ly since about 40,000 are still with­out teach­ing jobs because of the reces­sion. [bold and red in orig­i­nal]

Are Amer­i­cans who live in cities where char­ter schools exist exam­in­ing their prop­er­ty tax bills?

Is the fact that their prop­er­ty tax­es are going, in many cas­es, direct­ly into the pock­ets of for-prof­it enti­ties, not into the tra­di­tion­al school bud­get cof­fer, not of some con­cern to them?

Is the fact that char­ter schools have no school boards that rep­re­sent the vot­ers of the entire munic­i­pal­i­ty of no con­cern to them?

Is the fact that Com­mu­nist Core Marx­ist cur­ricu­lum, assess­ment and reme­di­a­tion of their children’s atti­tudes, val­ues and beliefs will exist in their child’s char­ter school, and they won’t have the right to com­plain about “it” not of con­cern to them?

Is the fact that char­ter schools are being used to teach reli­gion of no con­cern to them?

There used to be a pro­hi­bi­tion against tax-fund­ed pub­lic edu­ca­tion pro­mot­ing reli­gious beliefs. Many state con­sti­tu­tions for­bid tax mon­ey going to reli­gious schools! Why is this uncon­sti­tu­tion­al char­ter school enti­ty not being chal­lenged in the courts?

What is it going to take for the hard-hit Amer­i­can tax­pay­er and/or par­ent to wake up and focus on the prob­lem of tax-fund­ed  gov­ern­ment schools with no elect­ed boards (char­ter schools)… and, in addi­tion, to wake up and under­stand that once the gov­ern­ment funds any form of pri­vate educ­tion,  includ­ing reli­gious and home edu­ca­tion, that this edu­ca­tion enti­ty in effect becomes “public”/“government” edu­ca­tion (the kind of edu­ca­tion one finds in Cuba, Chi­na, or any Social­ist, Com­mu­nist coun­try)?

What is it going to take for Amer­i­cans to real­ize that the inter­na­tion­al­ists, Neo­con­ser­v­a­tives, Left­ists, cor­po­ra­tions and their phil­an­thropic agen­das (such as Bill Gates), the Coun­cil on For­eign Rela­tions, the U.S. Dept. of Edu­ca­tion and the Carnegie Cor­po­ra­tion “mafia” do NOT care about their children’s futures? They all sup­port tax-fund­ed school choice in order to imple­ment the life­long glob­al work­force train­ing agen­da. This Com­mu­nist work­force agen­da can­not be imple­ment­ed with­out tax-fund­ed school choice.

Lim­it­ed Learn­ing for Life­long Labor! Do Amer­i­cans not under­stand what those four words mean? Think about it! The Nation­al Alliance of Busi­ness, in the nine­teen nineties, called for work­force train­ing Kinder­garten to Age 80 (Yes, Eighty years old! Read more HERE)

The mon­ey MUST fol­low the child; each child into the slot des­ig­nat­ed by the public/private part­ner­ship. This is the Sovi­et poly­tech­ni­cal sys­tem. This is what the late Prof. Eugene Boyce of Uni­ver­si­ty of Geor­gia described so well when he defined Com­mu­nist poly­tech edu­ca­tion as fol­lows in his book The Com­ing Rev­o­lu­tion in Edu­ca­tion, 1983, as quot­ed inthe delib­er­ate dumb­ing down of amer­i­ca, page 317:

The com­mu­nists do not edu­cate peo­ple for jobs that do not exist. No such direct, con­trolled rela­tion­ship between edu­ca­tion and jobs exists in demo­c­ra­t­ic coun­tries.” [read more HERE]

What is it going to take for Amer­i­cans to  real­ize that edu­ca­tion is no longer about aca­d­e­mics, but about “train­ing” their chil­dren for the glob­al work­force?Your child is con­sid­ered noth­ing but a cog in “their” machine to be trained to spin off prof­its for the mem­bers of the glob­al elite.

All this was planned by the Carnegie Cor­po­ra­tion in 1934 in its lit­tle book Con­clu­sions and Rec­om­men­da­tions for the Social Stud­ies which called for using THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS to change America’s (suc­cess­ful) Cap­i­tal­ist eco­nom­ic sys­tem to a planned Social­ist (unsuc­cess­ful) econ­o­my.  Look at Sovi­et Rus­sia which adopt­ed the planned eco­nom­ic sys­tem after the Bol­she­vik Rev­o­lu­tion.   The Sovi­et Union was always a “bas­ket case. Carnegie has been behind the school to work agen­da for Amer­i­ca since the afore­men­tioned book was pub­lished. (Read more HERE).

What is it going to take for the few remain­ing aca­d­e­m­i­cal­ly-ori­ent­ed Amer­i­can pub­lic school teach­ers to real­ize that they have been used since the pas­sage of the 1965 Ele­men­tary and Sec­ondary Edu­ca­tion Act as guinea pigs in this whole social­ist cor­po­rate fas­cist Skin­ner­ian performance/outcomes based edu­ca­tion school-to-work restruc­tur­ing cat­a­stro­phe?

The aver­age Amer­i­can pub­lic school teacher detests what is tak­ing place in Amer­i­can edu­ca­tion.    He/she doesn’t want to teach to the test using Skin­ner and his box, the com­put­er, or to be turned into a men­tal health pro­fes­sion­al. Why aren’t those few remain­ing good aca­d­e­m­ic teach­ers orga­niz­ing a mas­sive protest before their state capi­tols and before the Con­gress in Wash­ing­ton, D.C? What do they have to lose since their jobs as pro­fes­sion­al aca­d­e­m­ic teach­ers are already tar­get­ed for extinc­tion. Get informed! Stay informed! Read this blog!
