Common Core Charter Village Hub Schools


Farrell (Pennsylvania) "hub" community education diagram
Russia has been a key player in developing TAX-FUNDED SCHOOL '"CHOICE" & CHARTERS WITHOUT ELECTED BOARDS and its corresponding COMMUNITY EDUCATION!

Some history follows, starting with the Full-Service Community Schools Act of 2014 and going back to the 1946 Montgomery County, Maryland pilot project which was the beginning of the demise of our representative republic, to be replaced by socialism/communism. This pilot project, interestingly enough, followed the United States joining the Communist United Nations in 1945!

Watch Hoyer's speech by clicking HERE.

(1) 2014: Congressman Steny Hoyer: Floor Statements: "Hoyer: Full-Service Community Schools Act Will Help Close Achievement Gap." The most recent Full-Service Community Schools Act introduced in Congress July 23, 2104:  Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD) spoke on the House Floor earlier this morning on the Full-Service Community Schools Act of 2014, which he is introducing today with Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL). Read his remarks and watch the video:
Full-service community schools are an innovative approach to help students and their parents access a full range of critical services all in one place. Let me emphasize, these are services that are currently available but not as accessible because they are not centralized. We will encourage communities to put together the services that they already provide in an accessible way for children and their families.
“For low-income parents working multiple jobs as they send their kids to school, finding time to provide them with adequate checkups and dental screening is often very difficult. The full-community schools model locates these services at their children's school along with nutritional counseling, financial literacy education, and adult classes – services that in most communities are already offered – to make it easier for both students and parents to access these services under one roof. It also helps ensure parents have the tools they need to support their children's learning, so critically important to the children’s success. (Source) [bold added]
(2) 2014: "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of the Village: How New Orleans Charter Schools have become the Global Model for the Community Education Agenda," July 8, 2014. This article was also posted at NewsWithViews on July 12, 201. Below are some opening quotes:
“OPEN is a hub of hubs."
Orleans Public Education Network (OPEN), funded by W.K Kellogg Foundation
...New Orleans is... the nation’s first and only all-charter school district,
the Recovery School District [RSD]. The system of
charter schools, which are run by private groups
instead of a publicly-elected board
....RSD focuses less on the ABC's and
more on holistic child development,
including topics like socialization, independence, self-control,
communication skills and accepting responsibility.

"To come back, Cowen [Institute] decided: 'We have to build a village'."

(3) 2000: Russian Conference on Community Education: "Community Schools and Education Policy in Transition Countries During the 21st Century" from the Center for Civil Society:
October 9-13, 2000 in Omsk (Siberia), Russia, Krasnoyarsk Center
for Community Partnerships (KCCP) together with Organizing Committee
of Omsk City Community Schools (Department of Education of Omsk
Regional Administration, Department of Education of Omsk City
Administration, Public schools # 49, 63, 95, 142) is conducting an
international conference on community education/community schools in
transition countries.
Conference Goal
Establishing partnership between government education departments and
the community school movement. As a result: increasing number of
government programs and procedures to establish community schools as
part of the education policy in transition countries. [bold added]

(4) 1999: An article was published titled “Clusters Promote Community Growth” that described a second-step phase of a “systems change” effort outlined in a joint publication from the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Together We Can. The article described the shift from representative (elected) governance to regional (unelected) governance with partnerships:
Unique groups called Community Cluster Care Teams were born last April, comprised of 12 Gwinnett communities, and have taken their first steps toward uniting sections of the county into neighborhoods. [excerpted from page 439 of my book, emphasis added]

(5) 1992: Russia was deeply involved in implementing school choice/charters necessary for school to work (limited learning for lifelong labor). The Effective School Report's Feb. 1992 issue carried an article titled "Free Education in a Free Society" that concluded, in part:
The education reform process will be built on the work of many small groups making their own decisions. We will need to build into our project structure of contract making (charters, ed), interdependence with autonomy and hold it within a regulated and boundaried field of action. These kinds of structures and models are new forms of organization for both East and West and represent a move away from hierarchy and role-dominated cultures.
The Consortium activity has the official support of the Minister of Education for the Russian Republic, Dr. Edouard Dneprov. [excerpted from p. 292-3 of my book, emphasis added]
Dr. Lepley's community "hub" article
(6) 1989: "Education in the Future: 21st Century Schools Will Offer Learning for All Citizens" was published in The Muscatine [Iowa] Journal’s April 22, 1989 issue. It articulated Dr. William Lepley (at that time director of Iowa's Department of Education) vision for the school as "hub" for all community services and life needs. At the time Iowans referred to his vision of the school superintendent's intrusive role overseeing the entire community as a "pseudo-benevolent godfather":
Dr. William Lepley's Iowa "hub" model
The ideal school houses social agencies such as health, job, and human service agencies, child care and serves as the community’s senior citizen volunteer center, [Dr. Lepley] said. And adults come to ideal schools—open round the clock—for educational opportunities ranging from childbirth and parenting classes to pre-retirement planning, he added. In the ideal community, Lepley said, the superintendent coordinates children and family services, in addition to education. [excerpted from page 253 of my book, emphasis added]

(7) 1985: Soviets in the Classroom! President Reagan-USSR President Gorbachev (US-USSR Education Agreements) signed in 1985. The agreements called for

“cooperation in the field of science and technology and additional agreements in other specific fields, including the humanities and social sciences; the facilitation of the exchange by appropriate organizations of educational and teaching materials, including textbooks, syllabi, and curricula, materials on methodology, samples of teaching instruments and audiovisual aids, and the exchange of primary and secondary school textbooks and other teaching materials... [and] the conducting of joint studies on textbooks between appropriate organizations in the United States and the Ministry of Education of the U.S.S.R.” [Read more in Appendix XXIII of my book]

From Feld's expose on "Community Education," p. 55
(8) 1980: Community Education, described by Ruth Feld and Jil Wilson in the Exposing the Global Road to Ruin through Education, Disc #8, (Written Submissions) is at, as a free download website (Click HERE). Also read this blogpost: "Community Education & UN Agenda 21."  This remarkably well-documented history of the Community Education movement is essential for a complete understanding of the almost one hundred year communist plan to put the USA and other countries under Limited Learning for Lifelong Labor/Community Education/Communism. Savvy education  activist/researchers/writers and ELECTED  school board members fought "them" and postponed full implementation by 18 years!

(9) 1946: Community-Centered Schools, The Blueprint, Montgomery County, Maryland schools. Immediately after USA joined the United Nations. Letter of transmittal states:
[The] program should be put into operation gradually… and Dr. Paul Mort and others have accumulated evidence which shows a period of almost fifty years between the establishment of need (need assessment, etc.) and the school programs geared to meet it.
If the school as an agency of society is to justify itself for the period ahead of us, it must be accepted that its fundamental function is to serve the people of the entire community, the very young children, the children of middle years, early adolescent youth, older youth and the adults as well.
