Thank you, Reed Hastings. Are you by chance a mole in the Trotskyites' (Heritage, et al, neoconservatives “stop Common Core” bandwagon designed to divert the American people's attention from the key issue, tax-funded school choice with no elected boards?) How exquisitely brilliant is this highly-funded anti-Communist Core (bad as CC is) diversion! Why are you, Mr. Hastings, now blowing the whistle on your friends?
(By the way, how many Americans are aware that the Heritage Foundation which is leading the parent bandwagon in opposition to the CC standards is at the same time leading the tax-funded school choice bandwagon? Do they know that the Heritage Foundation drafted the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which has robbed Americans of hundreds of thousands of good paying jobs, and which calls for tax-funded school choice for workforce training?)
The anti-Common Core diversion has succeeded in keeping Americans from focusing on the real issue - the Trojan Horse - loss of elected representation through publicly-funded school choice and charters with unelected councils (soviet form of government/regionalism).
Note: Some charter schools are teaching religion. Isn’t that unconstitutional? Do Americans really want to pay their education taxes to have a charter school teach religious beliefs? And not even have an elected official to whom they can go to complain?
Reed Hastings has provided the evidence to back up our DEMAND that our elected officials shut down every single unconstitutional tax-funded private, religious, home school or charter school, with their unelected school boards (taxation without representation) and government/corporate-controlled curriculum. “He who pays the piper calls the tune” or “what government funds government controls.”
We fought and won a war over this issue in 1775-1783!!!!!!
Exposing the Global Road to Ruin through Education is available at Amazon.com (brochure is attached and YouTube trailer is available) This 8 dvd disc set includes much discussion of the issue of tax-funded private education/charter schools and argues that:
Their agenda (Heritage Foundation, its affiliates in most states and other neoconservative national groups), the globalist Council on Foreign Relations, Rockefeller, President Obama, U.S. SecEd Arne Duncan, and Lou Gerstner, ex-CEO, IBM (he supports tearing down all (+-) 16,000 public school districts) who all support tax-funded private education and charter schools, with unelected boards, is LETHAL…
WE parents and teachers believe that all Americans want to hold onto their elective/representative form of government and not allow the United States to become just one of many democratic socialist nations in a totalitarian one world government planned in the early nineteen hundreds. Go to http://www.com and read Carnegie Corporation's little book, Conclusions and Recommendations for the Social Studies, published in 1934 which calls for using the schools to change America's capitalist economy to a socialist/communist planned economy and even calls for taking our land from us!

Abstract: "Conclusions and Recommendations for the Social Studies", funded by the tax-exempt Carnegie Corporation of New York, published in 1934, is the most important report ever written on the future of American education. All its recommendations and its philosophy are an intrinsic part of education in the United States today. Professor Harold Laski, a philosopher of British socialism, said of this report: "At bottom, and stripped of its carefully neutral phrases, the report is an educational program for a 'Socialist America'. One excerpt from this important report reads "The implications for education are clear and imperative: (a) the efficient functioning of the emerging economy and the full utilization of its potentialities require profound changes in the attitudes and outlook of the American people, especially the rising generation--a complete and frank recognition that the old order is passing, that the new order is emerging, (pp. 34-35).
Turning over education, which is second only to defense in discretionary spending, to an unelected council form of government will be the beginning of the demolition of our representative form of government. We will see the collapse of all units of representative government through the domino effect:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For other uses, see Domino Effect (disambiguation).
The domino effect is a chain reaction that occurs when a small change causes a similar change nearby, which then causes another similar change, and so on in linear sequence. The term is best known as a mechanical effect, and is used as an analogy to a falling row of dominoes. It typically refers to a linked sequence of events where the time between successive events is relatively small. It can be used literally (an observed series of actual collisions) or metaphorically (causal linkages within systems such as global finance or politics).
Please note last sentence above (last two words, which would include education!)
We are between a rock (lethal) and a hard place (difficult but "doable"):
Option 1 (rock): Neoconservative/corporate/globalist/non-academic lifelong school to work agenda with unelected school boards/charter schools. This option is designed to KILL all traditional public/private/religious, and home school education. What private school that refuses to accept tax money can compete with a private school which accepts tax money? It will be forced out of business. The tax-funded school choice option is necessary for global workforce training: every human being in the world on globally-controlled computer for training and computer assessment of workforce skills and proper Communist Core values.
The National Alliance of Business has called for Kindergarten through Age 80 workforce training! This can only take place with implementation of tax-funded school choice proposals which deprive taxpayers (grandma included) of their right to say “NO!” This system has been planned since the early 1900s to incorporate ALL services LIFELONG under the umbrella of the community school’s unelected school council. ALL means ALL: lifelong global workforce training (quota system), global education for the small elite who will serve as our unelected masters in the coming world government, health and mental health (screening K-12 and lifelong) services, abortion and euthanasia services, control of leisure activities, mandatory community service, art, drama, recreation, sports, etc. Please read the following article taken from "the deliberate dumbing down of america", pages 252-253. 3D is a free download at http://www.deliberatedumbingdown.com.
KENT TEMPUS WROTE “EDUCATION IN THE FUTURE: 21ST CENTURY SCHOOLS WILL OFFER Learning for All Citizens” for The Muscatine [Iowa] Journal’s April 22, 1989 issue. Excerpts follow: Schools in 21st Century Iowa will be hubs of their communit[ies], providing broad learning opportunities for all citizens, according to the director of the Iowa Department of Education. William Lepley says future schools will be centers for family and social services as well.
“Society in the year 2010 has realized that the school is the single societal institution that can truly be an advocate, a resource, and a catalyst for children and families, as well as learners of all ages,” Lepley said.... Students’ evaluation will improve. Instead of grades, students will be assessed not on the work they complete, but on the skills they master, he explained. Community service will be a graduation requirement. Also, educational opportunities are available for all citizens from preschool to adults. The school year won’t be restricted to 180 days of 5–1/2 hours each, because flexible schedules and teacher contracts will permit year-round learning, he said. “Teachers in ideal schools are managers of the learning environment,” Lepley said. “The teacher has been given the tools to be able to diagnose learning needs and to prescribe appropriate activities.” Schools themselves will change too, Lepley noted. 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, he 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.
[Ed. Note: Lepley used the term “hub” in this article and in a pamphlet distributed widely across Iowa to describe the school of the future which will encompass numerous social service agencies, health care, job training, child care, etc. This concept mirrored the Community Education plans promoted by the Mott Foundation of Michigan and incorporated into federal grant making under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. A multitude of state reform plans in the early 1990s include diagrams of this same plan, exhibiting the school as the center (or “hub”) of the community; significantly, some diagrams show churches, recreation and other private aspects of life encompassed within the “hub” concept. With the advent of school-to-work programs, the concept has been expanded to include “one-stop training centers” for workforce development and placement. Children who don’t pass the proficiency assessments will be sent through these “centers” for services and remediation which will rely on operant conditioning methods to ensure “success”.
Substitute “government” for schools like this “hub” plan and what political/economic system do we have? Who exactly asked for—voted for?—this alien “education” system which places our citizens and communities under the control of the unelected school superintendent?]
Note similarity of the Reinventing Schools Coalition (RISC) program (see below) to some of what Lepley discusses above:
Publicly-funded private schools will be required to use the RISC system being piloted around the world. It is referred to as the Reinventing Schools Coalition/Marzano “critical thinking/brain research” model of education and it uses Total Quality Management (TQM), has no grades K-12, or A-F, and students can graduate at 14 or 21. Participating schools, if effective, receive the Malcolm Baldridge Total Quality Management Award. Click here.

Option 2 (hard place): Hold onto present hierarchical public education system (K-12, grades A-F, competitive, academic, not workforce training) operated by elected school boards. The hierarchical structure is what I am referring to, not the present dumbed-down abusive curriculum. We will have to patiently, enduring sleepless nights and tearing our hair out, suffer the atrocities of the public school system (not, by any means, found in all public schools, and not supported by the average public school teacher!) We will gradually, with many setbacks, work our way back to a strictly competitive academic system. There will be endless obstacles, but the option, as I said above, is LETHAL.
How to: We must abolish the unconstitutional U.S. Dept. of Education with its extensive network of national labs and centers; we will return public education and funding to the local level with locally elected superintendents and school boards; we will remove from all curriculum and teacher training any and all disastrous federally-funded vestiges of the past 48 years. We will restore adequate time for arts, sports, and recess to the school day. We will focus ONLY on academic excellence and will not waste precious time on subjects which, if necessary, can be taught in the home, all of which have “education” hanging off the end of them: sex, health, values, alcohol, drug, bullying, death, global, etc. education, all of which have been designed to and have successfully accomplished the opposite of what they told parents they were designed to do. (Documentation exists for that last statement.) Elected school board members will return to their previous stature and will be responsible for hiring of academically capable teachers who are good role models for our children. We will not allow tax funding to follow the individual child with his individual education plan, necessary for workforce training. (Imagine what havoc that will play in creating school budgets!) We will abolish performance-based teaching/assessment and all forms of non-competitive, non-academic Skinnerian Outcomes-Based/Performance-based Mastery Learning, OBE, or Direct Instruction called for by the RISC program (above).
We will rein in the power of the national teachers unions which have very unfairly, through their public demands and statements, lead the public to associate teachers with the values of the leadership.
We will return to pre-1965 American education, the finest education system in the world which provided our children with upward mobility (freedom to choose their futures).
We will do the above on less than half the money being spent on education today.
Why, one must ask oneself, do our academic test scores keep declining while education budgets keep soaring? It costs little to “educate” academically. It costs hundreds of billions of dollars to brainwash.
The noted British novelist, C.S. Lewis, is quoted in the following article “C.S. Lewis on Liberal Arts Education” by Gregory Dunn which was published in the newsletter On Principle from the John M. Ashbrook Center for Public Affairs (April 1999, Vol. VII, No. 2).
Dunn says “Lewis contrasts liberal arts education with what he calls ‘vocational training,’ the sort that prepares one for employment. Such training, he writes, ‘aims at making not a good man but a good banker, a good electrician…or a good surgeon.” Dunn continues to quote Lewis as saying “If education is beaten by training, civilization dies…for the ‘lesson of history’ is that ‘civilization is a rarity, attained with difficulty and easily lost.’” Dunn goes on to say “It is the liberal arts, not vocational training, that preserves civilization by producing reasonable men and responsible citizens…A third reason we study the liberal arts is because it is simply our nature and duty. Man has a natural thirst for knowledge of the Good, the True, and the Beautiful…”
Luckily, we still have a representative form of government, fragile as it may be at the moment. We can still pressure our elected officials to stop this tax-funded school choice "limited learning for lifelong labor" insanity which will ultimately remove our constitutional right to determine our futures in EVERY area of our lives, not just education.
We can still go to the polls and vote, even if we feel most candidates do not represent us. We must field candidates who represent the best interests of our nation and future generations, not the best interests of those who want to use our children to spin off profits for the global elite.
God bless America.
