What Does ObamaCare Have to Do With the ESEA Reauthorization?


The fight for the right to be Free!


By Anita Hoge

"Chairman Alexander and his staff have asked for input from the public on his discussion draft by Monday, February 2 via the e-mail address FixingNCLB@help.senate.go" (Source)

How many Americans hate ObamaCare? Why do Americans HATE ObamaCare?

We have socialized medicine now. Do you want to nationalize education?

In many of my articles I have made the comment, ObamaCare mandates to the individual, the individual mandate. What does that mean and how does that effect education? Why did I connect what happened in ObamaCare to education?

The federal individual mandate in ObamaCare forces you, as an individual, to pay for government health insurance. Un-Constitutional as that sounds, the Supreme Court ruled that this was a tax, not a mandate from the government. Many states filed against this unconstitutional event.

We lost.

How does this PRECEDENT effect what the Reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is trying to do? (Now called the Every Child Ready for College or Career Act of 2015 sponsored by Sen. Lamar Alexander and on being rushed through on an incredibly fast track in Washington.)

The ObamaCare mandate set the PRECEDENT that now allows the ESEA REAUTHORIZATION to MANDATE the Common Core to the individual child. And with this in place, it will then MANDATE that federal TITLE I funds to "FOLLOW THE CHILD. And with this in place, it forces interventions on YOUR INDIVIDUAL CHILD. 

This gives the federal government the precedent that they need to NATIONALIZE EDUCATION. There will be no parental recourse, nor state or local government recourse, to change what the government will mandate.

This precedent bypasses both local control and state control. Once ESEA is legislated, this precedent gives Obama and U.S. Secretary of Education Duncan authority to do whatever they want in education. The federal government will have total control.

Read the paragraphs of this article to understand what the ESEA Flexibility Waivers did. Some people got it, but probably too late. We are already feeling the effects of ESEA (in the waiver) now. See the following article on the Ed Week blog: 
(Source)
That stance irked Idaho Superintendent Tom Luna, who told Duncan he would have a big problem if the federal department went directly to districts to work on waivers and didn't join hands with states on the issue. "It's an affront to states rights," Luna told Duncan.
Duncan tried to defuse the argument, saying that it was not his intention to do an end-run around states if district waivers were granted. But Luna, who was elected in 2006 on the Republican ticket, kept hammering away, saying that states had a constitutional right and responsibility to oversee their districts and not let the federal government intervene in such cases.

STATES RIGHTS!  STATES RIGHTS!  STATES RIGHTS!

Please look at my graph again. Common Core, Title I, and IDEA funds that go directly to the child is A STATES RIGHTS ISSUE, JUST LIKE OBAMACARE. The funds and the mandate bypass the local district and the state to mandate to the individual child.


If you hate ObamaCare.....YOU WILL HATE  THE REAUTHORIZATION OF ESEA.

The ESEA Reauthorization will NATIONALIZE EDUCATION. 

NO LOCAL CONTROL. NO STATE AUTHORITY.  

And if federal "Choice" is allowed to stay in this bill, your neighborhood public school is GONE, TOO, along with EVERY PRIVATE AND RELIGIOUS SCHOOL.

ACTION PLAN: THESE ARE YOUR ISSUES

STOP COMMON CORE and this federal ESEA LEGISLATION


  Access The Common Core Standards are not federal law, yet. This is the weakest link. Stop Common Core in your state and the federal government will not have the legal authority to mandate to your individual child for tracking an iep, or an individual career workforce plan and funding, Title I, identified for your child. Remember a standards-based system means individual students must meet individual standards. We want Academics and the Carnegie Unit. 

  Funding By stopping or slowing down the Reauthorization of ESEA, the federal government cannot fund the individual student to Common Core, which is linked to so-called "CHOICE" at any private, public or charter school. This legislation will diminish representative government and feed the charter school socialist take-over of education, i.e., nationalizing education. Stop Lamar Alexander's Reauthorization of ESEA bill which makes all schools government schools. This is what they mean by "choice." This legislation, if passed, will demolish our Republic and representative government. This "Choice" and Charter Schools will abolish representative government in the United States!!!  TARGET THIS BILL! CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN and SENATOR.  

  States Rights Title I funding 'following the child" bypasses the state legislature. Does your state legislature truly understand that they will have NO power once these "CHOICE" funds are directed to the individual child?  They will have no control of the purse strings! Stop the Re-Authorization of ESEA.  CONTACT YOUR STATE LEGISLATORS.

  Local Control Common Core Standards control the workforce curriculum bypassing local school boards and teachers in the classroom. "Choice" diminishes control over local taxing authority when funding goes directly to the student. Common Core and "Choice" create the perfect storm for the socialist takeover via Charter Schools that have no elected school boards. Parents will have no voice in workforce curriculum. The tax base will be destroyed with "Choice" stipends exploding across district, county & state lines. FIGHT FOR LOCAL CONTROL! STOP "CHOICE" AND CHARTER SCHOOL EXPANSION. 

  Privacy FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) must be challenged for allowing the corporations to access our kids' personally identifiable information without informed consent. Who has access to those written agreements? This access is how these corporations, foundations, non-profits, and  businesses that have gone into contract with the government are developing software and curriculum for INDIVIDUAL students to meet Common Core international workforce standards.  This digital curriculum will be the small letter iep career pathway, or personal opportunity plans that will control a students' upward mobility and learning genome. PROTECT OUR PRIVACY.


Access, Funding, Local Control, States Rights and Privacy are the Debate Issues.

"Choice" in ESEA will cause your state and local tax base to implode.

Charter Schools-are the socialist plan for a CORPORATEPUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP SYSTEM TAKEOVER.



ESEA will Abolish Representative Government Through Education.

Since everything we are looking at going on today is based on Skinnerian Outcomes Based Education OBE, now called "Common Core," perhaps it is time the average "trusting" American  takes a look at one of the earliest papers on the subject -- the international and U.S. plans to turn academic education on its head (what you know in your head) and turn the schools into workforce training sites to spin off profits for the global economy. Outcome- and Performance-based learning is based on B.F. Skinners's operant conditioning (animal training methods). Click HERE to read a whole month of posts (October 2014) on this blog that explains how Skinnerianism is the method.
Terrel H. Bell

It was under President Reagan's Secretary of Education, the late T. H. Bell, that this disaster was institutionalized as part of A NATION AT RISK. William Spady led the charge across the country, being in charge of the first experiment in Utah "to put OBE into all schools of the nation." In 1984 Secretary T.H. Bell approved a grant in the amount of $152,530 to the Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development (now known as Ed West) at which William Spady was the director. This grant was to carry out a project entitled “Excellence in Instructional Delivery Systems.” The cover letter from the Utah superintendent of schools to Secretary T.H. Bell to which the application for grant funding was attached said, “This [the research as a result of the grant] will make it possible to put Outcome-Based Education in place, not only in Utah, but in all schools of the nation.” The final report (evaluation) to the U.S. Department of Education regarding the results of this project stated:
The four models of instructional organization outlined in this casebook are difficult programs to implement. The practices of the ten schools described in the case studies are indeed commendable. Yet we do not offer these ten case studies as “exemplary schools” deserving emulation.

So, what did the change agents do? They put OBE “into every school in the nation.” Such misuse of taxpayer dollars is waste, fraud, and abuse which cries out for a Congressional investigation. Read HERE and HERE to understand how the government, along with corporations, want their own education system. They must control all education in order to accomplish their lifelong global workforce training agenda. The reason they are going after public education is due to the fact that we still have elected local school boards, accountable directly to voters and parents. This is a major obstacle to their changing over our education system from an academic focus to a performance-based workforce training focus -- with full implementation of a womb-to-tomb system of control of all Americans.

Is it any wonder parents are confused regarding what is going on in the schools that used to teach, not train using Skinnerian animal training. Two generations, at least, of American parents, their children and their teachers, have been obliged to go through the zig-zagging unintelligible, humanistic, values-destroying, globalist jargon and changes wrought by the change agents!

Is it any wonder the government, since the original Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, has had to throw all sorts of legislation with different labels at us to confuse us beyond human understanding? GOALS 2000AMERICA 2000, NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND, and now the Every Child Ready for College or Career Act of 2015 sponsored by Sen. Lamar Alexander?

ALERT: ESEA


Anita Hoge's Precious Goodbye to America


By Anita Hoge
Charlotte and our researchers have found that Lamar Alexander's Reauthorization of ESEA is not only on a fast track, but on a “lightening speed” (committee’s own words) track to be brought to the floor for a vote. We were told the end of March, but that has all changed.  I believe that the information that we are giving out in Press Releases, letters, and at Charlotte's blog have heightened this process. We know what they are doing, and we know how they are going to do it!

I have been writing about this issue for years. We have fought this battle on the local, state, and federal level. I have contacted many of you on a personal level to help you dig out from under this pile of garbage that is being fed to our country... the propaganda on Common Core, Tax-Funded School Choice, and Charter Schools with unelected boards.

Our children are on the battlefield and the enemy is mowing them down and the walls are closing in. 

Our warnings have gone unheeded. If you go to any one of my articles at NewsWith Views or the written documents in Global Road to Ruinthrough Education (disc #8) that I have shared with all of you, EVERY single issue that I have pointed out states that education will be used for the destruction of our country. (Included in my bio is a list of articles written about the destruction of this country and our children through education.) The Reauthorization of ESEA is the one culminating piece of legislation that will put it all together.

Charlotte has documented the steps through the years of people, places, treaties, documents that show the erosion of our freedoms.

Read my article Obama's Dream ComeTrue - Nationalizing Education before you read on. This article was written right after the Republican House passed the ESEA Reauthorization (HR 5) with flying colors, without much debate. It included amendments from "loyal comrade" Republicans who wanted choice monies to 'follow the child.' That was almost 18 months ago.
http://www.newswithviews.com/Hoge/anita101.htm
 
SB 1094 was the Senate version of removing representative government, although it was Senator Reid who held up the vote even though it was out of committee. In order to get everything passed, in order to destroy this country,  the Republican House had to bring this legislation forward, after which the Republican Senate would allow this legislation to breeze through Congress without much debate or controversy. The big compromise was to combine both bills into one.... the finished product is Alexander's Reauthorization of ESEA, 2015, amending No Child Left Behind. 

Please study this graph below that shows how Alexander's ESEA Reauthorization bypasses representative government and mandates to the individual child (YOUR CHILD OR GRANDCHILD) via Common Core, Title I and IDEA, Individuals With Disabilities Education Act. This funding and these mandates bypass local government and state government. Not an easy pill to swallow once you understand that your taxes are paying for the destruction of this country and the brainwashing of our children.

The ESEA Reauthorization and the NCES Contracts with each state (the state longitudinal data systems I exposed in December HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE) to monitor your children has so many sections for tracking and psychoanalyzing, and interventions of your children that I must list some of them again:

  • Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, PBIS
  • Functional Behavioral Assessments
  • Response to Interventions, RTI
  • Multi-Tiered System of Supports, MTSS
  • Specialized Student Support, SSS
  • Student Assistance Programs, SAP
  • Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, IDEA
  • Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act
  • Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services
  • Mental Health Wrap Around Services
  • 21st Century Community Hub Schools
  • Promise Neighborhoods, Promise Schools
  • NCES Exposure of the National ID- My Christmas Gift to the Nation
  • NAEP/NCES data collection creating the census- National ID of ALL CHILDREN as Title I
  • Exposure of FERPA-data trafficking our personally Identifiable information.
  • Title I following the child
  • Choice funds (Title I) for all private and religious schools
  • Expansion of charter school with no elected boards
  • Destruction of local neighborhood schools and Representative government usurping your vote, your voice through an un-elected board, and your taxes that are drawn further away from the local level to a regional investment workforce board, or to the state.


Let me remind everyone, that this is exactly what our Founding Fathers were fighting (Taxing the new colonies from afar without representation).  This was the cause of the Revolutionary War.  It is time for a renewed Revolution.  If not now, when?

Let it be today!

Everyone must storm Washington D.C. with emails and phone calls. We cannot allow the passage of a bill that could do so much damage to this country in one fell swoop. 

Our activism must double and triple everyday, to save the Republic.
 
Your children and grandchildren will have no future in this planned economy. 

Say fervent prayers for our nation to survive.

Lobbying Against the ESEA Reauthorization

One State's Grassroots Example
Go to this webpage, fill out the form,
or click on link for your state:
http://www.congressmerge.com/onlinedb/
The Missouri Senator (Senator Blunt) and the Missouri Republican Congressmen were contacted at their Washington offices earlier this week with regards to having Anita Hoge be invited to be an expert witness at the ESEA hearings in March.

The reception was excellent, and the staff will forward the information to their respective Senator and congressmen.

One of the offices recommended that the House Republican Education Committee be contacted, and so it was also contacted. (The hearing has not been scheduled yet, but the staff member was informed that it was our understanding that the hearing would be held in March.) The staff member will pass the request regarding Anita Hoge testifying to the 22 sitting members of the House Education Committee.

RAVITCH'S "CONSERVATIVE" HAT

We have been mislead by Ravitch
(Source)
Read Diane Ravitch's letter to Lamar Alexander HERE. Then scroll down and read Anita Hoge's reponse below. Ravitch is NOT one of us. She has used many of us with her blog, keeping really good researchers diverted, all the while Ravitch being on the other side. Read following from her letter (below) to Lamar Alexander! 
"Wearing my conservative hat....

"Conservatives are not fire-breathing radicals who seek to destroy community and tradition. Conservatives conserve, conservatives believe in incremental change, not in upheaval and disruption." [bold added] 


Diane Ravitch is wearing a Trotskyite neoconservative hat. Read my blog post "Common Core Trotskyites." Especially when she says to Lamar Alexander that "conservatives believe in incremental change" Did you ever read definition of "conservative" in a dictionary? Or the definition of Fabian Socialist?

Ravitch has always been a Fabian Socialist, believing in gradualism rather than violent revolution to bring about change. One has only to google Ravitch to find out where she is coming from and with whom she has associated in bringing about the gradual demise of our formerly (pre-1965) excellent public school system! Here is a definition of Fabian Socialism:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fabian_Society
Has Diane ever recommended abolishing the U.S. Dept. of Education? That is the litmus test of a true conservative. Read "The REAL Agenda Behind Abolishing the U.S. Dept. of Education." Does anyone really believe that Ravitch would have been appointed Assistant Secretary in the most important education office in the world, the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI) which is connected with, to name a few important UN-controlled groups, UNESCO and OECD, had she not been on the globalists' lifelong womb-to-tomb education team?

Take a look at all the former Assistant Secretaries of OERI. My boss, just to name one, the late Donald Senese, Assistant Secretary in 1981. Senese probably came closest to being a true conservative, although he compromised his political beliefs when he became deeply involved in  Reagan's education restructuring agenda, which jump started and carved in stone the United Nations' and Carnegie Corporation's globalist agenda formerly spearheaded by the Democrats in Congress (1965-1980). (Read my book the deliberate dumbing down of america for details.)


A little story which tells much
A month before I was formally appointed Sr. Policy Advisor, Office of Educational Research and Improvement,  Donald Senese called me at home and asked me what I considered a very weird question, at the time, that is! He said, "Charlotte, are you going to be "loyal"?

Being true-to-form, naive Charlotte, I thought he meant "loyal to the  United States Constitution?"   So I, of course, said "Yes."
Ravitch letter to Lamar Alexander

What Senese obviously meant was, "Are you going to be loyal to President Reagan and his administration?"

Once working in the OERI I learned very well what he meant! And that is why I was very loyal TO THE CONSTITUTION, NOT TO THE REAGAN ADMINISTRATION, and leaked the technology grant (Project BEST) to the press and got myself fired. Project BEST (Better Education Skills Through Technology) put federally-funded education curricula into every area of the curriculum into ALL schools of the nation.

Anita Hoge's remarks regarding Diane Ravitch and the ESEA:


DOES ANYONE READ THE DOCUMENTATION? Have you read my comments on Lamar Alexander's bill to Reauthorize ESEA? [See posts HERE, HERE and HERE, and follow the links.]

Title I, IDEA, Choice, and Charter Schools. Most of the bill is about mental health and interventions. Do you remember what I said about Diane Ravich?


Evidently not.

I am very tired of taking my time to explain what others (like Ravitch) are putting out there to take people AWAY FROM THE ISSUES!!!


Diane Ravich writes this consoling letter to her friend Lamar, describing ONLY 13-14 pages FROM THE ENTIRE BILL, AND EVERYONE GOES GAGA OVER IT. THIS BILL IS 400 pages long. She talks about this small section of ESEA like it was the most important part of the entire bill. 
(Source. Also see previous post about Ravitch HERE)


Really, Diane.

Diane is proposing EXACTLY WHAT NAEP (the National Assessment of Educational Progress) wants.... 

  • 3rd grade guarantee, 
  • 8th grade career pathway, and 
  • 11-12th grade graduation requirement.
The research from the exorbitant testing and PARCC and SMARTER BALANCE was done for NAEP to use for their research. NAEP HAS ALWAYS PIGGYBACKED THE STATE ASSESSMENTS. This is what NAEP wants. The "model curriculum" will embed the testing in the classroom. We have documented that. Re-read the Press Release [See posts: HERE, HERE and HERE]. That was what FERPA was all about. Research to embed the immediate feedback for teachers to do the interventions. IMMEDIATE. The teacher evaluations based on how the students perform on the tests are still in the legislation.

The NAEP IS ADMINISTERED BY NCES. NCES. NCES. NCES... the state longitudinal data system.
REMEMBER!  Diane is on all of their boards. 
(Source)


How convenient that Diane ONLY REFERS TO 13-14 pages of a bill that will be over 1200 pages long in the end. Many of Alexander's pages are full of 'page numbers' referring back to the old sections of the bill... that means when the bill is finally written it will be 1200+ pages long. Diane only thinks that these 14 pages are important.

Really, Diane!
  • Diane NEVER REFERS TO ALL OF THE BEHAVIORAL CONDITIONING, THE SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL TESTING THROUGH IDEA.
  • Diane NEVER MENTIONS RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION, 
  • Diane NEVER REFERS TO THE POSITIVE BEHAVIORAL INTERVENTIONS AND SUPPORTS, THE INDIVIDUAL INTERPRETIVE, DESCRIPTIVE, DIAGNOSTIC REPORTS (See pages 20 and pages 28 of the bill) 
.....NEVER, NEVER, NEVER!  NEVER!

She is a TOTAL front for the NAEP AND NCES to get what they need to finish off this country.

Believe it. If you don't, you better go back and read the bill. She refers to:

  • Option 1 is between pages 16-24
  • Option 2 is between pages 24-29
And these are the only pages she talks about in her long, lackadaisical letter to Lamar, and finishes with this quote, "Read anything Diane Ravitch writes about education."

This is pure treachery! You have to be kidding!


Now, how many pages did I document that the behavioral and mental health agenda and takeover of education through Choice and Charter Schools that PERMEATES THIS ENTIRE LEGISLATION???? [See: Lamar Alexander's Re-authorization of ESEA]

I'm very tired. I can only give our grassroots members the documentation. I cannot force you to read it.

Read the Reauthorization of the ESEA and weep!


Listen to Anita Hoge discuss the implications of the Reauthorization of the ESEA HERE. The interview with Anita starts shortly after the 28:00 minute mark.
