How many Americans hate ObamaCare? Why do Americans HATE ObamaCare?
We have socialized medicine now. Do you want to nationalize
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.
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.
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
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
ACTION PLAN: THESE ARE YOUR
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 CORPORATE–PUBLIC/PRIVATE
PARTNERSHIP SYSTEM TAKEOVER.
ESEA will Abolish Representative
Government Through Education.
