PUBLIC EDUCATION OR GLOBALIST INCUBATION CENTERS

January 31, 2017

Over the last few decades, the state-run indoctrination centers have seemingly lost all focus on education. Instead, they concentrate on social issues.  Gender identity, climate variance and diversity are prominent.

However, as core academic scores drop the government continues to take over your rights and usurps the authority for raising your children. Oh, you still remain the responsible party when something goes wrong. They just want complete jurisdiction over instilling a radical leftist viewpoint into the malleable minds of your offspring. They foster incubation facilities for social collectivism that demand governmental authority over child raising. <link>

Thanks to progressives pushing their communal association plans, kids of the U.S. today have less chance of success than ever before. The American Dream is now ascension to mediocrity.

According to a 2012 National Center for Education Statistics report (the most recent found), math scores for the U.S. dropped from 25th to 31st among developed nations since 2009; from 20th to 24th in science; and from 11th to 21st in reading. We now rank #1 in gender diversity education, though.

Even Portugal (a socialist dominated political and economic system), expects more parental participation. Recently, one school principal posted the following in the hallways.

Dear parents

  • We would like to remind you that magic words such as hello, please, you’re welcome, I’m sorry, and thank you, all begin to be learned at home.
  • It’s also at home that children learn to be honest, to be on time, diligent, show friends their sympathy, as well as show utmost respect for their elders and all teachers.
  • Home is where they learn to be clean, not talk with their mouths full, and how/where to properly dispose of garbage.
  • Home is also where they learn to be organized, to take good care of their belongings, and that it’s not ok to touch others.
  • Here at school, on the other hand, we teach language, math, history, geography, physics, sciences, and physical education. We only reinforce the education that children receive at home from their parents.

I guess they’ve learned that some things are better handled at home.  Doing away with the over-lording and abysmal failure known as the Department of Education is a first step.  Returning supervision of education to local districts with direct input from parents might be a second step.  Competition in the form of school choice could also help those students who want to learn.

As with so many things, decentralizing massive bureaucratic authorities in favor of localized responsibility and control is the proper direction to making America great again.

WEAVING TANGLED WEBS

September 12, 2015

Trying to follow decisions made by different courts around the land is difficult for the average person and impossible to to understand how judgements are made. Activist judges on all levels (lower courts, state supreme courts, federal circuit courts and finally the Supreme Court of the nation) continue to invoke unconstitutional interpolations to the Constitution of the United States of America for the sole purpose of making laws rather than clarifying them.

Here’s a simple headline: The Washington Supreme Court Rules Charter Schools are Unconstitutional.
Reading the story, one finds that the “decision” questions the constitutionality of taking taxpayer money and giving it to private enterprises. The premise for this is that using taxpayer money to actually educate children rather than running them through public indoctrination centers is not a proper use. The money, once it is in the hands of corrupt government disbursement agents, must remain within the system of corruption. It can only be used within, by and for the purposes of direct government influence. That’s what this decision says to me.

Howwever, it is nothing more than another blatant example of liberal interpretation to suit a unique situation without regard for how taxpayer money is normally used as a whole.  The decision conveniently ignores the fact that the Army Corps of Engineers are not the one’s contracted to build any of the influential centers that fail to educate our kids. Instead, it is private contractors such as Fluor or Ledcor or Lusardi who use the taxpayer money to do such.

Using the school system alone to make fools out of the Washington State Supreme Court, one could take any of the purveyors for any school district.

Antithesis #1.
Are the books that convert our kids’ minds from normal to liberal written, printed, bound and sold by employees on the government payroll? Almost, but not really.

Antithesis#2: Are the meals provided to the youngsters while on the institutional grounds raised, planted, cultivated, cropped, butchered and sold by the overpaid tax usurpers? Not at all, that’s work Americans refuse to do…or so I’m told.

So, with this layman’s reading of the decision, how is it unconsititutional for our children to get a balanced education using taxpayer money?  Why must our youth be chained to a highly influenced liberal indoctrination center?

Apparently, if liberals lose control of the easily influenced minds of tomorrow’s generation before they are able to form reasoned thoughts for themselves, it poses a threat to the domination philosophy. Therefore, all counter arguments derived using logic must be summarily dismissed and replaced by what “feels” right or what most appeals to the liberal doctrine.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we attempt to parse well defined words in order to continue enslaving the masses.

THE NEXT GENERATION

July 15, 2013

Currently, our public schools fail in basic education.  They do a stellar job of socially engineering and politically indoctrinating of our kids, but they fail to educate and prepare them for productive lives.

The same people who refuse school vouchers and deny home schooling are trying to force a higher minimum wage.  Young adults leave high school with insufficient knowledge of math, English and academics in general, personal responsibility, work ethic or the benefits of self-reliance.  A “living wage” for doing an unskilled menial and repetitive task is the only way for the undereducated to survive.

Upon graduation, however, they do know how to cry foul and blame others for their failures.  They cannot compete, yet demand unearned respect and rapid advancement.  For twelve or thirteen years, they receive passing grades for doing substandard work resulting from little effort. Inadequate is sufficient.

Of course, higher wages mean finished products cost more necessitating a higher wage to accommodate the new cost of living.  If progressives continue to control the collection and distribution of taxes, knowledge and education may not be necessary in tomorrow’s world.  Everybody, except for the ruling class, will be equal and trudge through life accepting government subsidies.

Progressives now want to begin the indoctrination process as soon as infants are potty trained. They will even take over that process if it will speed their ultimately dictatorial agenda of a One World Government. To achieve that goal, they must first have complete control of their subjects’ minds.

Please take the time to watch the first three minutes of the linked video. http://www.therealfoodchannel.com/page/11792.html   It illustrates how marketing (for food products) trains the compliant minds of preteen children to unquestionably accept and adjust to directed presentation.  This is the same method used by liberal teachers in our schools today.

Two particularly pertinent statements caused alarm when I watched this.  They are, “Young children cannot comprehend how advertising is manipulating them”, and “Children cannot be expected to exercise critical thinking or personal responsibility about food choice until they are quite a bit older.  The exact age is a matter of some research debate, but eight-year-olds certainly fall below it.”

Are you still sure that public education is the proper way for your children, grandchildren and future generations?  Perhaps if we just pour more money into the public school system…?

IT’S A FUNDING PROBLEM

March 9, 2013

It’s not a teaching problem; it’s a lack of funding.

According to a report from New York’s CBS-2 news, eighty percent of students graduating from New York City high schools remedial reading program, can’t read.

At a taxpayer expense of $18,800 per student per year, (47% above the national average) the kids of New York are doomed to a life of flipping burgers.  The good news is that progressives want to raise the minimum wage so that poverty is more acceptable than the food prepared by the undereducated populace.

There’s more good news, too.  For those who want to break out of the life to which they have been sentenced by the lower public school echelon.  The City University of New York (CUNY) offers a low-cost English immersion program for those who can’t read their recently awarded high school diploma.  Recognizing the problem, the CUNY class is guaranteed to bring reading skills to a level where the high school graduates can read and understand the “HOT” warning on a coffee maker.  Then they will be prepared to move on and become PPACA doctors.

It’s almost like a Ronco commercial…”And, if you act now, we’ll throw in a complete education for only a small fee.  You just pick up the voucher from your local Welfare office”.

I have to question the system.  How is CUNY able to take kids with twelve years of public school education who cannot read ‘Fun With Dick and Jane’ and turn them into Tolstoy scholars in nine weeks?  If CUNY can actually bring up the reading skills in a short period, why isn’t the same method used in 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade?

A possible answer to my own question might be:  The tenured union teachers take time from instilling knowledge of math, English, reading and history to teach the students how to put condoms on cucumbers and how stealing from the wealthy is commendable.  Nah, that’s too simple.

Double the funding for public schools, it’s the only way for kids to learn.  It hasn’t worked in the past, but certainly it will now.

CSCOPE AND TESCCC

November 25, 2012

CSCOPE lesson plans must be banned from public schools.  They are subversive and dangerous to high ranking societies.

My last posting (THE TERRORISTS OF BOSTON) included a quick reference to CSCOPE and their books and lessons regarding the Boston Tea Party.  Further research found that they (CSCOPE) are involved in virtually every aspect of abstractly deforming our children’s minds.  It is one thing, a wrong thing, to teach kids that being gay is natural and normal.That is done to satisfy the progressive’s need to expand the realm of normalcy and distort reality so that virtually any behavior becomes acceptable.  A society not tethered by morals or ethics and subliminally trained to accept blindly what is proffered upon them is much more controllable by a strong central authority.

Another lesson of the progressives plot to change American history for future generations involves the very foundation of our government.  “The Legacies of Ancient Greece” includes a lesson plan fed to our pharmaceutically calmed students stating that our founding fathers modeled our democracy after that of Athens simply because the city of Athens drew up a constitution identifying how the government should run.  There is no apparent reference to the democratic republic currently governing our nation.

The Legacies of Ancient Greece also provides subtle references to the dominance of men in sports and theatre.  This is undoubtedly intended to project a parallel onto the forming minds of the next generation. Progressives choose to believe in our country today lacking balance, in all areas, that is only correctable by a large and powerful central government.

Though I cannot verify the fact, I believe in reviewing the publication that the illustrated book might be sponsored by a leading sportswear manufacturer and others.  At minimum, the illustrator’s pocket may have been lined with cash or merchandise.  Specifically, I refer to the section on the 26 mile footrace from Marathon to Athens and Nike (the Winged Goddess of Victory) announcing the defeat of the Persians.  The accompanying illustration shows a runner in modern garb including tank top, running shorts and running shoes, none of which existed in ancient Greece.

Again, without specifically stating, the entire book makes sub-threshold references leading the suggestive mind to progressive atonement.  With a liberal teacher (authority figure) leading the discussions referring to the above described lesson plan, a child can only conclude we should not be a democratic republic and must follow the democracy of Greece with an unchecked power base in Washington, D.C.

The final page of the book ends the lesson with the words, “Now that you are aware of them, you will see the legacies of the ancient Greeks cropping up all over the place!”  While the basic statement is true, the underlying theme to be cautious about is how the children were led to the dawning of their conclusions.

Please check out TESCC (aka TESCCC) and CSCOPE.  One site that I found interesting is http://www.getbookee.com/tescc/
