FOR THOSE AMERICANS WHO HAVE BEEN
LIVING ON MARS:
THE MORE BILLIONS THE GOVERNMENT SPENDS ON EDUCATION
THE MORE THE DECLINE IN TRADITIONAL ACADEMIC TEST SCORES

$ee the ear­li­er post about MARC TUCKER of the CARNEGIE CORPORATION titled “Gov­er­nance” — Erad­i­ca­tion of Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Gov­ern­ment: Marc Tucker’s Good­bye to Your Rights and Free­doms.” Tucker’s plan is to abol­ish local­ly elect­ed school boards, there­by allow­ing con­trol by unelect­ed coun­cils, using near­ly $0.9 TRILLION dol­lars for brain­wash­ing our chil­dren by anti-Amer­i­can, anti-aca­d­e­m­ic edu­ca­tion agents.

$ee the above chart from: US Gov­ern­ment Spend­ing Break­down: Fed­er­al, State, Local for 2015 — Charts.” Total Fed­er­al, State and Local edu­ca­tion spend­ing = $0.9 tril­lion dol­lars, of which $141 bil­lion is fed­er­al fund­ing. Defense Depart­ment spend­ing, in con­trast, is $0.8 tril­lion dol­lars.

YOUR TAX MONIES ARE PAYING FOR THE FOLLOWING NON-ACADEMIC NONSENSE & BRAINWASHING

$ee from the CASEL web­site, the Col­lab­o­ra­tive for Aca­d­e­m­ic, Social, and Emo­tion­al Learn­ing: “Fed­er­al Leg­is­la­tion to Pro­mote Social and Emo­tion­al Learn­ing”  we dis­cov­er they are work­ing on leg­is­la­tion in Con­gress (see HERE). Here is what these change agents are plan­ning to do with your chil­dren:

$ee from CASEL, “Out­comes Asso­ci­at­ed with the Five Com­pe­ten­cies,” we find the fol­low­ing exhib­it:

 

The short-term goals of SEL pro­grams are to one, pro­mote stu­dents’ self-aware­ness, social aware­ness, rela­tion­ship and respon­si­ble-deci­sion-mak­ing skills; and two, improve stu­dent atti­tudes and beliefs about self, oth­ers and school. Learn more about how these, in turn, pro­vide a foun­da­tion for bet­ter adjust­ment and aca­d­e­m­ic per­for­mance.”

$TOP & THINK 

Stop and think NO WAY, ESEA
NO WAY Casel’s “SOFT SKILLS” 
NO WAY brainwashing of our children!
NO WAY losing billions of federal dollars!
NO WAY losing freedoms!
NO WAY losing true local control!
NO WAY losing representative government!

SOLUTION (and it doesn’t cost tril­lions of dol­lars)

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAYTO RETURN TO TRADITIONAL EDUCATION THAT WILL BENEFIT YOUR CHILDNOT THE PUBLIC/PRIVATE GLOBALI$T ELITE$:

  1. Abol­ish the U.S. Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion and the state depart­ments of edu­ca­tion;
  2. Pass leg­is­la­tion pro­hibit­ing any fed­er­al fund­ing of assess­ment, data col­lec­tion, health, men­tal health, or work­force train­ing at the local lev­el. No offices relat­ed to the above non-aca­d­e­m­ic ser­vices allowed at the fed­er­al or state lev­els.
  3.  Return all pub­lic ele­men­tary and sec­ondary edu­ca­tion to the local lev­el.
  4. Keep prop­er­ty tax fund­ing at local lev­el
  5. Keep local­ly elect­ed school boards.
  6. School super­in­ten­dents must be elect­ed by local board.
  7. Teach­ers should be trained in spe­cif­ic basic aca­d­e­m­ic skills and dis­ci­plines, includ­ing his­to­ry, espe­cial­ly Amer­i­can his­to­ry, for­eign lan­guages, art and music.
  8. Dis­con­tin­ue state teacher col­lege accred­i­ta­tion.
  9. Restore K-12 aca­d­e­m­ic edu­ca­tion, tra­di­tion­al A-F grad­ing and real com­pe­ti­tion.
  10. $141 bil­lion dol­lars spent at fed­er­al lev­el should be spent instead on nation­al infra­struc­ture improve­ment and increased vet­er­an ser­vices.
  11. The bal­ance (approx. $759 bil­lion from state and local fund­ing) should be spent at the LOCAL LEVEL ONLY. Just imag­ine how much the local­ly-elect­ed school boards could do for “all” stu­dents if they had access to this huge amount of mon­ey.
  12. Revert to year­ly LOCAL test­ing of stu­dents. Use the orig­i­nal Iowa test.  Elim­i­nate state and nation­al assess­ments — since these new-fan­gled assess­ments are sim­ply the mech­a­nism to deter­mine the “human cap­i­tal” val­ue of your child to the state and glob­al­ist cor­po­ra­tions. Check your dic­tio­nary for def­i­n­i­tions of words “assess­ment” and “tests.” Read “When Is Assess­ment REALLY Assess­ment?” by Cyn­thia Weath­er­ly.
    The inex­pen­sive joy­ful way that chil­dren used to learn

$TOP & THINK
WHY TAKE SUCH A RADICAL SURGICAL-TYPE APPROACH TO CURE THE DELIBERATELY CREATED PROBLEM?

Take anoth­er look at the above gov­ern­ment sta­tis­tics: $0.9 tril­lion tax dol­lars that the Amer­i­can tax­pay­er is fork­ing out to pay for this non-aca­d­e­m­ic brain­wash­ing train­ing of your chil­dren for glob­al gov­ern­ment and then you decide.

$TOP & THINK
PARENTS AND CITIZENS NEED TO UNDERSTAND a major part of what is going on in your child’s school; how your child is being used as a guinea pig behind closed doors, using indi­vid­u­al­ized edu­ca­tion, glob­al edu­ca­tion, val­ues clar­i­fi­ca­tion, deep­er learn­ing, role play­ing, crit­i­cal think­ing, etc. and the com­put­er (Skin­ner­ian oper­ant con­di­tion­ing) to brain­wash him/her in the skills, atti­tudes, and val­ues nec­es­sary for “cit­i­zen­ship” in a total­i­tar­i­an world gov­ern­ment where there will be no U.S.Constitution or Bill of Rights and no tax­pay­er rep­re­sen­ta­tion.

IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT FOR YOUR CHILD? Here is anoth­er exhib­it from Casel’s “Social and Emo­tion­al Learn­ing Core Com­pe­ten­cies”  Keep in mind as you read this that your child will be mea­sured, assessed, and must per­form up to par on these “Core Com­pe­ten­cies.” This is the new edu­ca­tion.

I know. Its 2014, so we have long been into the 21st cen­tu­ry. I could have used Col­lege and Career Readi­ness but it was too long for the title. The truth is, SEL is a skill for any cen­tu­ry, and we need it for col­lege, career, or more impor­tant­ly, our per­son­al lives.

Col­lab­o­ra­tive for Aca­d­e­m­ic, Social, and Emo­tion­al Learn­ing (CASEL) defines social-emo­tion­al learn­ing as “the process­es through which chil­dren and adults acquire and effec­tive­ly apply the knowl­edge, atti­tudes and skills nec­es­sary to under­stand and man­age emo­tions, set and achieve pos­i­tive goals, feel and show empa­thy for oth­ers, estab­lish and main­tain pos­i­tive…
