WE DESPERATELY NEED TO STOP THE EXPLOITATION OF OUR CHILDREN

Our children are being exploited. This exploitation must be stopped. This time I am not speaking about Stacy Lynne or Monika Wesolowski, both mothers, who have had their children ripped away from them in political retaliation for their beliefs. In this article, I am not identifying the unimaginable horrors of CPS and the devastation that they visit upon our nation’s family structure. This time, I am talking about an institution in which the majority of the people working there, actually do care what happens to our children. However, this does not change the fact that our children are being exploited, mostly for profit, as our children attend the nation’s schools. 

Our children are being exploited socially, economically and politically. As your child goes back to school this fall, how do you know what they are learning will provide maximum benefit to their future? How do we know that Common Core is the panacea for education that Obama and his minions claim that it is? We cannot be sure, because Common Core has never had to prove itself with substantial and scientific research. The evidence supporting Common Core is all anecdotal, at best. In fact, some of the tenets of Common Core has been tried before, just under a different name. 

We can all rest assured after reading this article, the reader will become aware that much of Common Core is a simply a regurgitation of Bloom’s Taxonomy combined with some very clever propaganda interwoven into the fabric of every course which embraces social justice, collectivism the eventual deindustrialization of America through the acceptance of man-made climate change theories and the resulting carbon taxes and cap and trade policies which will follow.

No teacher and no school board member was asked to contribute to the Common Core standards. Nor was any State Legislature involved in the creation of this monstrosity.

Under this plan, every teacher will teach the same material with much of the same teaching strategies as every other teacher. This is the 21st Century educational version of the Stepford Wives. The Tenth Amendment is dead and individual freedom is being stamped out.

Common Core Plagiarizes Bloom’s Taxonomy

Common core espouses the laudable goal of making children think critically. In every piece I have read where the establishment defends Common Core, the company line states that it is important to move children away from memorization learning to analyzing and creating. I wholeheartedly agree with this goal. However, we do not have to spend billions of dollars to achieve this end.

In 1948, psychologist Benjamin Bloom and associates, developed the six levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Under the taxonomy, learning progressed from memorization to analyzing and creating. If that sounds familiar, Common Core has copied Blooms taxonomy almost verbatim. Sure they changed nouns to verbs and verbs to nouns, but the progression of learning is almost identical. And this is what is being touted as the great revolution in teaching and learning. After comparing Blooms Taxonomy to Common Core, can there be any doubt that of the lack of authenticity of Common Core?

Compare Bloom's Taxonomy *pictured on the left) to Common Core (pictured on the right).

Compare Bloom’s Taxonomy (pictured on the left) to Common Core (pictured on the right).

Why would the creators of Common Core go backwards and regurgitate Bloom’s Taxonomy? First, the taxonomy is respected and gave America some of her best days in public education. Bloom’s taxonomy was successful because of the fact that the government did not get to control the content or the application, namely, the curriculum. To do so would be appropriately referred to as propaganda and decades ago, educators still had academic freedom. Today, academic freedom is dead. Google has even suggested using robots in the classroom. After a few years on Common Core, the mission will have been accomplished with human robots. 

Secondly, the social and political propaganda comprising Common Core can be installed in the curriculum of schools if a respected learning progression is universally accepted. Then the substance behind the theoretical approach can be slipped in and the propagandizing of the young can begin.  It is deception at its best! Yes, I am talking about a system of education where propaganda is a thinly disguised goal. And what if the creators of Common Core can mandate specific topical material to be taught within the Common Core, an entire generation of young learners can be molded to the desired point of view which fits the goals of the creators of this regurgitated educational system. Before you tell me to remove my tin foil hat, please examine the evidence listed below and then honestly tell me that there is not a cause for concern.

First, let’s take a look at the history of failed federal educational programs.

One Failed Federal Education Program After Another

To understand where we are going, we have to first understand where we have been. Teachers have endured such educational faux pas from Goals 2000, to School to Work, to No Child Left Behind and now we are witnessing the latest in fad in American education, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

Each one of the aforementioned programs threw billions of taxpayer dollars down the toilet, while contributing to the dramatic decrease in student performance.  For example, SAT Reading scores, for the high school class of 2012, reached a 40+ year low since the implementation of No Child Left Behind. (NCLB).

The successor of NCLB, Common Core, is based upon social justice, arriving at knowledge and subsequent decision making through a spirit of a soviet-style collectivism and developing a communal agreement about the need to teach and to integrate into each classroom an underlying theme of sustainable development. These goals are not just going to be taught in specific Environmental Science courses, but these philosophies are to be implemented and taught in EACH and EVERY course that a child takes during their educational experiences beginning with pre-K and stretching to post graduate secondary education.

 

Bill Gates

Bill Gates the driving force behind Common Core

Globalist and Eugenics proponent, Bill Gates, is one of the Founding Fathers of the Common Core movement and its copyright holders, NGA/CCSSO. Gates donated about $25 million dollars to promote his version of global education.  Gates has made several donations to CCSSO to promote Common Core. In 2009, Gates made two separate donations of $9,961,842 and $3,185,750. In  2010, Gates donated $743,331 and in  2011, he contributed $9,388,911. In 2008, Gates donated $2,259,780 to the National Governor’s Association (NGA) to develop and implement Common Core. The NGA is the conduit into America from the United Nations UNESCO, Education for All Agenda 21 version of globalist education being forced down the throats of our young people.

Gates is listed as a partner with UNESCO/UN to fund ”Education For All,” which in turn was transferred to the National Governors Association which changed the name to Common Core. In a key document, The Dakar Framework for Action: Education For All: Meeting Our Collective Commitments’ which identifies the goals for what became known as Common Core. The document speaks directly to the Agenda 21 educational ideals of collectivism, social justice, environmental justice and the espousing of the beliefs of the pseudoscience known as sustainable development.

Bill Gates does not care about the education of your child. However, he does care about the money that Microsoft makes at the expense of your child. And whose computers are going to be used as the school children take their Common Core PARCC Assessment this coming school year? If you read the preceding paragraphs, then you already know the answer to that question

Common Core Serves the Edicts of Agenda 21

Agenda-21-Is-EvilChapter 36 of Agenda 21 Public Awareness and Training focuses on impressing upon every citizen on the planet, the indispensable for achieving sustainable development. In plain language, Common Core is going into every country. The implementation names of this global education may vary, but the underlying Agenda 21 philosophies do not. Chapter 36 also states that the globalists plan to reorient worldwide education toward sustainable development.

In future installments in this series, the weak academic standards of Common Core will be revealed. Reform of the nation’s standardized objectives is merely a smoke screen to the true intent of the program which is to covertly gain acceptance for Agenda 21 policies. Subsequently, the Agenda 21/UNESCO documents clearly state their intention to turn each student into a globalist who will accept smaller living space, residing in the stack and pack cities of the future, acceptance of drastic energy reduction and the loss of Constitutional liberties. The document goes on to say that “While basic education provides the underpinning for any environmental and development education, the latter needs to be incorporated as an essential part of learning. Both formal and non-formal education are indispensable to changing people’s attitudes so that they have the capacity to assess and address their sustainable development concerns…”

Educational Russian Roulette

The Common Core is an untested, federally promoted, unfunded experiment. The standards creators (NGA/CCSSO) have not set up a monitoring plan to test this national experiment, to see what, if any, unintended consequences the Common Core will have on our children. This is a game Russian Roulette being played on the socio-emotional, intellectual and spiritual aspects of our children’s development.

This is only the tip of the iceberg. If we let the teaching of the controversial topic of sustainability in each and every course, our children will not be given the chance to debate the merits of climate change theories. This will lead to the unquestioned ushering in of carbon taxes and cap and trade policies. This will spell economic doom for this country as know it today through the biggest wealth transfer in American history through cap and trade which will severely curtail individual and small business energy usage. Yet, the rich will be able to afford to buy their way out of restrictions by paying the penalties that the average person cannot afford. Ultimately, this will lead to neo-feudalism. If you doubt the veracity of these comments, let’s give President Obama the floor and let him tell you in his own words.

Are we really naive enough to believe that Obama is just making up this nonsense about implementing cap and trade and causing our utility prices to necessarily skyrocket which will significantly lower the standard of living for the middle class?

We can teach our kids to think critically without this program, we could just return to Bloom’s Taxonomy because it works. However, this approach would not offer the pretext for the Bill Gates’ of the world to shove their MAN-MADE climate change agenda down the throats of our children and get them to acquiesce to what is coming. And Gates stands to lose a lot of money if Common Core is abandoned.

In another 10 years, this federal program will implode like all the other federal education programs, but the damage will have been done. How many more decades can America endure a drop of reading comprehension scores by another 40+ points until we are as functionally illiterate as most third world countries? And more importantly, how far will that American standard of living be decreased during this time as we produce a generation of children who will mindlessly accept the resources scraps of this planet as they attempt to survive in a completely changed world?

Solutions

Is it time to home school? It is certainly understandable if many choose this option. For most, the time for mass home schooling has not yet arrived, but we need to demand accountability and demand it now. Teachers and administrators need to be involved in revamping of this program. For example, when dealing with controversial topics like climate change, both sides of the issue need to be fairly presented. We need to halt the funding of Common Core immediately and embrace what it is based upon, Bloom’s Taxonomy. We need to embrace what we know works, not the anecdotal accounts of Common Core supporters who stand to make billions of dollars through the implementation of this program. We also need to return education to the local level and empower local school boards to make education decisions on curriculum as they once did. Then and only then, can we shape a future for our children that we can trust and the exploitation of our children will be stopped and the undue influence on our children, like Bill Gates, can be limited.

    Good morning Dave, hope you had a great 4th, and Christ bless all of you. Now, admittedly my double digit IQ is not equal to yours so be patient with the child of a lesser God. But sir, does it really matter who teaches what to whom when the teachers live in fear of the students. There is no discipline in the classrooms and the teachers have no power to enforce anything. Touch a child in any school in America and the teacher is unemployed. I’ve looked inside our classrooms and its more akin to a zoo than a learning institution. How anyone can spend a day let alone a life time career with those neanderthals is beyond me. Homeowners are being taxed into opression to support nonproductive schools because the teachers are paralyzed with career fear. This spring two kids, age 12 and 13 helped me plant my garden. Neither one of them could spell pea, bean, okra, and don’t even think about tomato, watermelon, or cucumber. Their mother is a teacher, and I asked her how this happened. Her response: “There is no learning in the classroom because of disruption from other students”. If this is the case, and it is, maybe the new world order will not be so bad. Honestly, can you imagine a world where disorderly students are executed, felons are hanged, and shop lifters forfeit their lives on the spot? Compared to the mess we have today, can Sharia law be that bad? I am an American, and a veteran, but I didn’t enlist to defend the people in this country that are living the good life off of my paycheck and retirement account. And all too often these destroyers don’t come from D.C., they come out of the Churches, bible in hand, with no other agenda than to get a free ride and make life miserable for the rest of us. Fifty years ago it would have been unthinkable for a single mother to walk into a church, today they are part of the taxconsuming landscape, with no shame or repentance. A World War 1 or WW2 veteran would have never under any circumstances burdened the taxpayers with the pathetisism of PTSD. In conclusion there are no Conservatives, some people are just more liberal than others, but to one degree or another, everyone wants a free ride. They receive without working, and the taxpayer works without receiving.

    As Ron Paul stated we do not need a Federal Department of Education. Education should be left to the individual states, not the Federal Government.
    But, all that is null and void anyway.
    The USA is, and can no longer be denied, invaded, conquered, and captured lock stock and barrel.

    The only solution, and it hurts to even say it, is full out revolution.

    The Federal Government today, just literally kills whoever gets in their way or attempts to expose their piracy. Until we, the people, decide to pick up a weapon and fight for our nation, it as we will fall and be eliminated.

    History shows this to be true in a thousand ways!

    I think this was from Bucky Fuller, (not an exact quote): You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something create a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
    I like this idea because we won’t waste energy trying to wake up people who really want to stay asleep. I do think we need to speak about corruption, lawlessness, etc. I’ve tried to educate people but I was never successful. Now I speak out maybe 5% of my time and the rest of the time I’m collaborating with other awake people. i love makerspaces, homeschooling, Techshop, and open source everything. Thanks for all you do Dave. God bless you.

    Embrace Bloom’s taxonomy?! Really!? Although I agree with many points here, I wonder if this is a Delphi technique in progress…

    Hi Dave. Who do we beseech for accountability? The copyright holders of Common Core, CCSSO and NGA? Complete repeal of this planned monstrosity is critical, no one may alter, delete, nor modify CC in any way.

    I strongly disagree with your statement it’s not yet time to homeschool en mass. In NYS our rollout was two years ahead of everyone else except CA and KY. CC is CHILD ABUSE, it confounds, confuses and makes kids doubt themselves. Dr Peg Luksik talks about how CC uses the UDL method, designed for alternative learners. It’s antithetical to common sense to make “typical” learners use UDL, it harms them.

    My friends in public and private who have kids dealing with CC are incensed. The kids start to hate school, learning, and themselves. Fights about attending school pervade with CC. Mary Calamia talks about how her practice spiked with CC, kids react badly to CC insanity (on youtube she testifies against CC in NYS).

    Unless you are ok with your children not learning, being indoctrinated, and being taught to the test incessantly, the only option outside top tier $$$ privates is homeschooling.

    CC is state sanctioned child abuse with a price tag estimated to be $16B for implementation, with our non-existent tax dollars. CC itself is unsustainable on every level; only the corporations benefit from unfettered access to our impressionable children.

    NYS has had product placements on these secret tests – oops, assessments.

  7. hondo July 5, 2014 at 10:57 am

    Just thought I would pass it on, that 40 UK politicians have been found “complicit” in a Westminster pedophile ring. Pardo the pun, but there is some “meat” to the morbid things you have been reporting. Thanks for the good work!

    What we are witness to is the self destruction of the American civilization and the enslavement of the 99%. One of the great impediments to a socialist world slave state, is, or was the great white middle class of North America and Europe. Fearlessly Independent and able to think for themselves, Europeans, for the most part, no matter where they have settled have, for the last 300 years or so, developed systems of government, individualism and freedom unrivaled anywhere on this planet and anytime in history. Witness the US Constitution of America.
    Through out this history the predatory and parasitic banking elite have attached their tentacles around these productive and inventive peoples from Europe and their main means was to control of the educational process, going all the way back to the Rockefeller fund of the early 20th century. Thereby, they have nearly choked the life out of the people economically and intellectually.
    There are several aspects of this decline of Western Civilization.
    1.Smart people are having fewer and even no children thereby not passing on their intelligence. (It’s a given that 80% of IQ is genetic and 20% environmental. Even then the more intelligent will tend to create a better environment for their children, that is, if they have any.

    2. The lesser endowed with intelligence tend to have larger families. (This tends to produce more problem makers than problem solvers.)

    3.One of the central tenants of the Marxist-Communism is egalitarianism. A society where every one is made equal is the very definition of a totalitarian society. Except for the elite who are more equal. Read “Animal Farm” by George Orwell.

    4.One of the main means of creating a totalitarian society is through the control of the educational process as dreamed of by the Rockefeller family over a century ago, where in, the people could be molded like putty in the hands of their minions via “educational” grants to the major universities. Little by little these minions have been turning out teachers who for the most part, have been doing their part, in turning out students imbued with Marxist egalitarian dogma. Many, if not most, of the teachers knowing not what they do.

    5. Racial minorities, a major portion of the American population tend to learn best through rote memorization. The European derived majority portion of America tend to learn best through inductive and deductive reasoning. These are generalizations, but for the most part hold true. In an egalitarian educational system where the racial cohorts are mixed in the classroom learning for some is boredom for others. In order to attempt to remediate this intractable classroom environment, various stratagems, based on egalitarian dogma, such as no child left behind, and common core, and others before that, has created a general dumbing down of the American student. This results in a more complacent population in the hands of the 1% elite in setting up their world plantation via the UN and Agenda 21.

    6. Still, even with all this, with trillions thrown at useless and even worse than useless educational stratagems, the love of freedom and independence runs deep in the hearts and minds of much of the American people.
    We may be all equal in the eyes of God. We are not all equal by the laws of nature.

    One can hope (not the Obama “hope”) that we still have the time to “screw our courage to the sticking point” and throw the bastards out.

    Hi Dave,

    I always read your stuff.

    Working in govt. healthcare is very challenging. I worked for almost 3 years as the head of of the Child Lead Poisoning Protection Program, for a city in NJ. The corruption I saw there was beyond anything I had ever seen.

  10. matt July 5, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    I don’t know the history of education. but whatever they were doing before WW2 that’s what they should bring back…also we need to take down MTV!

  11. bullydogs1971 July 5, 2014 at 12:41 pm

    everyone should have a contingency plan….worst case scenario…anyone who has had their children stolen by cps should on an approved visit take matters into their own hands and do what is necessary to subdue the kidnappers (CPS) and get your children to safety…even if it means leaving the state or country…..as i see it these evil thugs are just that, kidnappers….i would have no mercy when i mean subdue!

  12. American mom July 6, 2014 at 3:24 am

    Dave, the groundwork for Common Core started earlier than Bloom’s Taxonomy, it started with the liberals and Dewey, coupled with National Education Association and nefarious foundations like the Carnegie Foundation (who Norman Dodd documented schemed to literally rewrite history and buy out the historians). That UN idiot Robert Muller was writing his World Core Curriculum as the Dewey disciples ruined our strong, local, one room school education. The Rockefellars went into the medical schools starting in 1902, and ousted natural healing and Eastern philosophies to introduce the big pharma cartels. There were 160 medical schools, the evil Rockefeller Foundation brought that number down to 49.

    The NEA and its minions call the new non-education Outcome Based Education, OBE.

    I’ve found copies of old school tests from 1865, 1918, 1934 on the internet. The tests are hard – students then were much more educated. In some regions the school year was far less, it followed the agriculture calendar. To see those old W Va and Kansas tests, the intentional destruction of our education system is apparent.

    Due to the CC copyright, teachers may NOT change any material, teachers are being silenced over CC. Pearson is only now putting test pilot questions on the regular assessments for free. All schools agreed to CC without seeing it, as they got $$$ and out of NCLB. Purportedly Coleman hadn’t written CC yet when 46 states signed on.

    Don Tolman taught himself to have a photographic memory more than a couple decades ago. He found out that infants and little children have photographic memories, but we the parents, and the schools, train them out of it.

    Get your kids out of the public schools. School them at home, or at least get them into a charter or parochial school.

    One of the best things you can do for them is to get a copy of the Bible on CD, in modern English, and play it during family time or at meals for, say, a half hour every day. Be sure that the kids don’t have their ear buds in listing to the latest “wild” music.

    Your kids will thank you immensely in the future. Maybe the nation will even survive.

    Dave,
    This is really pitiful.
    Even the “New” Bloom’s is dumbed down! Knowledge is now remembering..Comprehension is now understanding.
    Bloom’s Taxonomy is taught to education majors in college. So now it looks like the terms have to be broken down to elementary school level for them. I noticed the term at the top of the pyramid, “creating.” Who is doing the creating, the STATE or the student?
    In the state where I taught, there is an effort by Agenda 21-styled advisors to back-door CC by the use of instructional materials that go by the name of TRS (TEKS Resource System) formerly known as CSCOPE( doesn’t stand for anything..really!). There was an outcry from both educators and parents over the secrecy of the CSCOPE. Is that why they changed the name?
    Is another name, more secrecy? Just like the Trans Texas Corridor redux I-69. Once there’s a public outcry, it’s renamed.
    On a side note, TRS also stands for Teacher Retirement System. These globalists are really something!
    Now, cell phones are allowed in middle school. In a local high school in a nearby city, cell phones are allowed for “research,” rright.
    Here’s an interesting piece of news, the SAT essay is now optional: Reporter Larry Gordon, LA Times March 12, 2014: “Making the essay optional is part of an effort to align the SAT more with what students learn in high school and to discourage expensive private tutoring. But opinions about having standardized exam essays at all are divided in academia.”

    Oh my, so much to say..one more thing though..About school lunches, I taught at a school that had THE best fried chicken and steakfingers, gravy, mashed potatoes, pimento cheese sandwiches,peach cobbler..just good ole’ home cooking. Those lunch ladies were able to show the love by being unencumberd by oppressive regs.Guess what, plates were cleaned!
    Sadly that’s no more since you know who got on board.

    Dave, keep up the good work.

    Here’s a website to check out: http://www.txcscopereview.com/2014/common-core-in-texas-schools/

  15. mahwah July 6, 2014 at 3:30 pm

    Dave, I know there is a lot of info to process but I think you should know before you go and promote Bloom’s Taxonomy about the following that Benjamin Bloom proclaimed: “The purpose of education is to change the thoughts, actions and feelings of students…challenging student’s fixed beliefs” Bloom also said that he can change a student from believing in God to being an atheist in one hour.

    EDITOR’S NOTE: I AM AWARE- LESSER OF TWO EVILS IS STILL EVIL- DO YOU HAVE A BETTER OPTION?

  16. Been there, done that, Mom July 6, 2014 at 11:40 pm

    All of you seem sincere in this discussion on education. But, I’ve learned long ago, 19 yrs. ago, that any kind of schools; public, private, or charter schools,( and yes, even prepackaged homeschool curriculums) have been compromised. (When you take even one penny from the government, YOU’VE BEEN COMPROMISED! There are ALWAYS STRINGS ATTACHED!)
    I would REALLY recommend, “googling” , “Exposing the Global Road to Ruin Through Education”. I bought the 8 disc set through Amazon but, you don’t have to. All 8 discs are uploaded on to youtube. Please watch each disc more than once, you’ll learn a lot!
    There is sooooo much involved when talking about “Education”. You could get your school board to illiminate one thing or a group of you could set “State Standards” but then a year later another school board comes in or another good sounding “educational fad” comes along & because we don’t do our OWN homework and we trust the conservative crowd (Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing), we swallow it, hook line and sinker. You could spend your whole life fighting this monster, instead of being with your family!
    No, all this nit-picking about CC, whole language, tracking, the NAEP, “Total Quality Management & School to Work” is all senseless. This has been going on even before I got involved in this 19 yrs. ago. The schools are on FIRE, REALLY, REALLY ON FIRE!!!! The author of this article suggests that there is enough academics being taught, and you parents right now have at least this generation before things get bad, NO, THEY ARE BAD NOW! In fact they couldn’t get any worse!!! Those with itty- bitty toddlers all the way up to 18 year olds. Get them out now! Home educate them! Love them! After you got out of high school didn’t that first 10 yr. class reunion come awful fast? How about the 20 yr., 30 yr., 40 yr.? TIME FLYS!!! Spend that precious time with them now while you can! There are home education catalogs out there and good curriculums along with activity and support groups. Use your common sense, you can do it! And by all means KEEP THEM OFF THE INTERNET! Do not use computer assisted learning! Please watch Anita Hoge’s presentation on that disc set on youtube along with Charlotte Iserbyt’s. The computer is a machine, unlike the teacher that never tires. Your children are being changed, they may look the same on the outside, but the computer is changing them on the inside. By the time they reach puberty, you won’t even know them. There are 2 very good books that explains the role of computers in education, “Outcome-Based Education” by Peg Luksik and Pam Hoffecker and the other, “”Pavlov’s Children” by Ann Wilson. All this is being done legally, through “locas parentis” excuse my spelling. The schools can do whatever they want to, to YOUR children because you can’t even comprehend the things that are being taught to them and because you haven’t said specifically you can’t do this, this, or that, THEY DO! I think it’s called a negative Opt-Out, where unless you specifically say they can’t, they will and THEY DO!
    Those that have school age children should do nothing else but home educate and leave the fighting over CC and everything else to those of us whose children have already grown up. Be with your children during these very important years, spend your time influencing them to YOUR beliefs & traditions. And you know what? If only 10 percent of the American parents pulled THEIR children out, the rest of us wouldn’t even need to argue about CC anyway! Attendance would be down everywhere throughout the U.S. that THEY WOULD GET THE MESSAGE!

  17. Law of 8 July 9, 2014 at 10:02 pm

    Once again the time when we could DO anything about this has passed, it’s done, the ship has sailed. Public schools like so many other American institutions are irretrievably lost, short of a Revolution and destruction of the vast governmental infrastructure running our schools. Obama Care, Common Core, and a host of other social engineering projects are HERE and the people ( as things stand now) have no power to change them. Screaming, holding our breath, throwing tantrums, none of this will change anything. The people calling the shots DON’T CARE what we think or want. They have the power and they will NEVER willingly give it up. There is really only one solution but it is a terrible and frightening one. As Jock Ewing once said, “Real power is the kind you TAKE.” Many even those on here haven’t accepted this yet.
