PARENTS AND TAXPAYERS BEWARE! Carnegie's Done Deal: 1934-2015 US Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions: Newsroom - Press Releases Parents and taxpayers beware! You don't have to waste your precious time reading all the educationese text in this Reauthorization bill, or any of it's amendments! Simply look at the Baker's Dozen who strongly support Senators Patty Murray and Tsar Lamar's Reauthorization of ESEA. These individuals and groups have no constitutional right to be using our tax money to restructure the USA from a Constitutional Republic to a Democratic Socialist / Communist nation in a World Government (NWO) being implemented as ABCs of Dumb Down writes. These individuals and groups are carrying out Carnegie Corporation's agenda, spelled out in its 1934 book Conclusions and Recommendations of the Commission on the Social Studies, which called for using the schools to change America's capitalist economic system and, in some cases, to take our land. Citation: AmericanDeception.com. Type "Conclusions" into search engine. (See esp. pages 16 and 17) This list includes communist change agent groups, including useful idiots, that have been responsible for the deliberate dumbing down and the deliberate destruction of your children's and their teachers' values, through mental health brainwashing programs, since passage of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D., in The Power Elite Exposed, page 304, explains the history of this communist transformation of the world's autonomous nations into first, regions (UN Agenda 21 using the unelected council form of government being implemented nationwide, and in education through charter schools ). This transformation will ultimately lead to a world union of socialist nations. (World Government). "Most of the leaders of the nations which are members of the European Union [ Program for International Student Assessment PISA ,being forced on the US, ed ] are already members of Socialist International, and if other nations around the world can be moved toward socialism and regional economic arrangemenets, then these regional groupings can be more easily merged into a world socialistic government. "At this point, one might be wondering how the power elite could get Communist dictators to go along with this scenario. The explanation is that this scenario is quite similar to the three-stage plan outlined by Stalin at the 1936 Communist International. At that meeting, the official program proclaimed: 'Dictatorship can be established only by a victory of socialism in different countries or groups of countries,' after which there would be federal unions (UN Agenda 21 regional government which is communism, ed) of the various groupings of these socialist countries, and the third stage would be an amalgamation of these regional federal unions into a world union of socialist nations." Strong Support for Bipartisan Legislative Agreement to “Fix No Child Left Behind” Education community, national and state leaders praise ? Every Child Achieves Act? Tuesday, April 21, 2015 Margaret Atkinson / Jim Jeffries (Alexander): 202-224-0387 WASHINGTON, D.C., April 21 – The Every Child Achieves Act of 2015, introduced earlier this month by Senate education committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-Wash.) to fix “No Child Left Behind,” last week passed the committee unanimously and is receiving broad support from governors, chief state school officers, teachers, school board members, and school superintendents. According to Sen. Alexander, “The consensus the committee reached is this: Continue the law’s important measurements of academic progress of students but restore to states, school districts, classroom teachers and parents the responsibility for deciding what to do about improving student achievement. This change should produce fewer tests and more appropriate ways to measure student achievement. It is the most effective path to advance higher state standards, better teaching, and real accountability.” What others are saying about the Every Child Achieves Act of 2015: THE BAKER'S DOZEN National Governors Association: “The nation’s governors commend the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee for working in a bipartisan way to restore balance to the state-federal relationship. Governors have long called for the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The Every Child Achieves Act reinforces the principle that accountability and responsibility for K-12 education rests with the states. It also supports governors’ strategies to improve low-performing schools and includes flexibility for governors to empower teachers and school leaders to prepare all students for success. We look forward to working with the Senate to ensure gubernatorial leadership is reflected in the bill and reauthorization is completed this year.” National School Boards Association: “Today marks a great victory for local and community leadership in public education. Though there is much more work to be done, today’s powerful vote demonstrates that we are one step closer to rewriting the broken No Child Left Behind Act and modernizing ESEA.” National Conference of State Legislatures: “The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) applauds your bipartisan legislation to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The Every Child Achieves Act is a strong, state-centered bill and an important step forward in fixing the current law. We appreciate that the legislation includes many provisions recommended in the reauthorization plan that NCSL released in partnership with the National Governors Association. Under your legislation, states would receive greater flexibility in areas such as accountability systems and school improvement strategies. It also ensures that states will determine academic standards and can use innovative assessments to measure student achievement.” National Association of State Boards of Education: “NASBE applauds Chairman Alexander and Ranking Member Murray for putting forth a bipartisan bill that recognizes the essential role states play in setting education policy, while continuing the federal commitment to equity and accountability. The Every Child Achieves Act of 2015 is an important step forward in providing states and districts with the authority and certainty they need to place the nation’s schools on a path to higher performance and continual improvement.” Council of Chief State School Officers: “Chairman Alexander and Senator Murray have created an excellent bipartisan bill that gives the Senate a strong starting point for the long overdue reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The Every Child Achieves Act of 2015 is aligned with the key priorities that State Chiefs outlined in January, and will provide our states with the long-term stable federal policy they need to continue making progress for all students.” School Superintendents Association: “This bill restores a more proper balance between federal, state and local government in public education. ECAA takes the pendulum of federal overreach and prescription rampant in current law and places it more squarely in the area of state and local expertise and autonomy. The bill recognizes the importance of empowering state and local leaders to use their professional knowledge and proximal location to make the decisions necessary to successfully adhere to their educational missions. It corrects flawed policy related to standards, accountability and assessments to ensure that all students are better positioned to learn and achieve.” Teach For America: “Teach For America (TFA) was glad to see a bipartisan Elementary and Secondary Education Act reauthorization bill released today that recognizes the urgency in updating and strengthening our education laws, from early learning through high school graduation. All students, regardless of race, national origin, or income, deserve the opportunity to succeed, and all teachers deserve the resources and the professional development to help them do so. This bill is a start in the right direction to move progress forward.” American Federation of Teachers: “At the beginning of this reauthorization process, we called on policymakers to reclaim the original purpose of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act — to help children, particularly those at risk — and to end the testing fixation. Today, in a bipartisan manner, Sens. Alexander and Murray took an important first step by showing that, even in this current climate, one can find common ground by listening to teachers, parents and other important voices in education.” – Randi Weingarten, president Partnership for 21st Century Learning: “Today P21, the Partnership for 21st Century Learning, the leading organization uniting business, education, and government leaders to advance meaningful teaching learning for all students, expressed support for the Every Child Achieves Act (ECAA) sponsored by Senators Alexander and Murray as a balanced, bipartisan approach to updating the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). P21 strongly supports the bill's commitment to equity, innovation, and emphasis on equipping students with the knowledge and skills required for postsecondary success.” National Alliance for Public Charter Schools: “We are pleased that Chairman Lamar Alexander and Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-WA) have achieved a bipartisan agreement to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act…We applaud the committee for strengthening this program that has been critical to the growth of charter schools nationwide.” Third Way: “This thoughtful compromise represents a huge step forward in achieving meaningful reform of the parts of NCLB that weren’t working, while preserving those parts that were spurring growth in student achievement. If every Member of Congress approaches this upcoming debate with the same spirit that has generated this compromise, there’s no doubt we will see a new law passed this year — one that will continue to build on the progress we’ve made since No Child Left Behind and set our students up for success in an increasingly competitive global economy.” Charlotte Iserbyt April 24, 2015

If you are a believer, Catholic or Protestant, it is time to take education back from the koolaid drinkers! Children are getting soaked with false messages about reality 24/7. Parents are following the pied piper also by allowing much of the deception to be poured into their little one's minds, either through corrupt thinking school systems or television, movies and music. It is time for believers to act like believers and stop allowing the enslavement of their own children. Warning! If you don't do it now, you will regret it. It may already be too late! "When you consider the [current]situation of religion teacher Patti Jannuzzi being fired for speaking the truth on her Facebook page [about the lack of a shred of eveidence of homosexual genes and that children need both a mother and a father], and when you consider the constant brainwashing of children (even in Catholic schools) on tolerance for homosexual activity, and when you consider a host of other subjects like evolution, sex ed, etc. all being shoved down the throats of little ones..... Well...maybe it's time to get back to basics and what the Church has taught for millennia about the truths of the faith and the obligation to pass them on. Read these words of wisdom from Pope Pius XI (1939): Nevertheless, Venerable Brethren and beloved children, We wish to call your attention in a special manner to the present-day lamentable decline in family education. The offices and professions of a transitory and earthly life, which are certainly of far less importance, are prepared for by long and careful study; whereas for the fundamental duty and obligation of educating their children, many parents have little or no preparation immersed as they are in temporal cares. The declining influence of domestic environment is further weakened by another tendency, prevalent almost everywhere today, which, under one pretext or another, for economic reasons, or for reasons of industry, trade or politics, causes children to be more and more frequently sent away from home even in their tenderest years. And there is a country where the children are actually being torn from the bosom of the family, to be formed, (or, to speak more accurately, to be deformed and depraved) in godless schools and associations, to irreligion and hatred, according to the theories of advanced socialism; and thus is renewed in a real and more terrible manner the slaughter of the Innocents. Every tyrant knows that controlling the future means controlling the minds and hearts of the children. What are your children learning today? Are your values taking root in them or are they being formed by godless professors in college classrooms and local schools? Don't let them forget where they come from! It's worth thinking about.

By Diane Kepus March 14, 2015 NewsWithViews.com In the nightmare world progressives are designing a civil society where little tots are to no longer be your little tots. They are government-sought human resources to be raised as tomorrow’s anarchists. The massive push to fund Pre-K and get a hold in our daycare centers by providing the funding is a single mothers dream. However, in reality it flows with the Communist way of thinking which is to have control of the children from birth through college. This mentality is endorsed by Sen. Lamar Alexander (R), Al Gore and Bill Ayers as a means to indoctrinate the children and build barriers between them and their parents. How could anyone be against tax-subsidized Pre-K for all you ask? There are many ways. I will never understand why parents are so willing to let complete strangers have control of their children for 6-9 hours a day, 5-7 days a week. If that chokehold on children is not Hitlerian, then what is? “Those Obama initiatives are knockoffs of moldy-old Democratic policy chestnuts, such as former Vice President Al Gore’s push to fund preschool for all 3-year-olds at a cost to taxpayers of at least $50 billion over 10 years, left-wing actor/director Rob Reiner’s “I Am Your Child” campaign for universal preschool and child care, and Hillary Clinton’s various “It Takes a Village” schemes to expand Head Start from womb to work. With age comes fiefdom.” (Malkin). You don’t believe Marxism is in the classroom? What do you think all the Bill Ayers taught teachers are spreading? The only group of terrorist acting Americans who went to jail and came out to go to college to become teachers and were welcomed by the liberal colleges and universities to indoctrinate your children on your dimes. In 2012 Diane Ravitz confused her readers when a reader ask if Ms. Ravitz thought teachers were teaching Marxism in the classroom and she responded addressing that all teachers love children, to teach and their country. Sorry Ms. Ravitz, most change agents of the 80’s were teachers and you didn’t answer the question. Bertell Ollman, a college professor who states she has taught both undergraduate and graduate courses on Marxism for almost a decade—mainly at New York University, but also at Columbia University, Union College, and the old Free University of New York believes Marxism is not being taught correctly. Has the Bogeyman entered the bedrooms and classrooms of our young children? Marxism has been slowly infiltrating our lives since the early 20’s. John Dewey is not a figment of anyone’s imagination. Obama sees fit to once again put his feet and hands into the classrooms of our children and also encouraging parents to put their children in Pre-K even if they don’t work and he is making sure it is funded. On Wednesday, December 17, 2014, the White House Summit on Early Education unveiled nearly $1 billion in new “investments” to “expand access to high-quality early childhood education to every child in America” from “birth and continuing to age 5.” It’s a retread of President Obama’s 2013 State of the Union school-spending plan, which was a repackaging of his 2011 Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge program. Dozens of corporations, foundations and individuals have agreed to dedicate a greater ongoing percentage of their philanthropy to expanding high quality early childhood programs and research as a strategy for achieving better education, health, social and economic outcomes, with commitments currently totaling more than $333 million. Obama also announced over $750 million in federal funding for early learning programs through the Preschool Development Grants and Early Head Start-Child Care (EHS-CC) Partnerships, totaling more than $1 billion in critical investments in early childhood education announced today. There are some pretty big Bogeymen out there to warp the minds of your children let alone the physical and mental abuse of the heavy push for our children to sit in a classroom all day long tied to a computer. Cleverly they have incorporated the National Sexual Education Standards (NSES) throughout the curriculum of the English Language Arts and Math textbooks. Hurrah for Planned Parenthood (PP)! This is to start in Kindergarten. I have written about this push of sexual education for our children at such an early age before and it is just like the DARE drug program to stop drug use. Young children who are exposed to things they know nothing about are going to go about their own way to learn what it is all about – hence a large drug problem among young children. The same thing is happening with all the “sexual” information being thrown at our young children. Hence, the increase of sexual promiscuity and unwed mothers. Just what kind of men and women do we have running the government of our country that they would allow these inexcusable antics to go on especially without informing parents? But then, after all, what do the legislators have to fear – we re-elect them no matter what they do to us and now they are in full force to kidnap our children. “Come here my little pretty”! Have you ever read “The State of the American Child: Securing Our Children’s Future” presented by the 111th Congress? You certainly should! Obama’s White House contends that “studies show for every dollar we invest in early childhood education, we see a rate of return of $7 or more.” PROVE IT! They made this statement based on the results of a Preschool in Michigan, run at a cost of $19,000 per child more than a half-century ago, and a similar program in North Carolina called the Abecedarian Early Intervention Project. The Abecedarian Early Intervention Project was focused on “poor” children stating they are behind and less prepared than those who come from a home of greater wealth. The massive cost of this program was $13,900 per child per year. Researchers advised caution about the positive reports pointing out there were many analytical discrepancies in published reports, including unexplained changes in sample sizes between different assessments and publications. My question is – did the Federal government pay these schools to participate in this project? It wouldn’t be the first time. Brookings Institute found in a study that full-time pre-K in 2 states; GA and OK “have had, at best, only small impacts on later academic achievements.” In fact, Georgia elementary-school students’ test scores are mediocre, and Oklahoma test scores have been on the decline for the past decade. Keep in mind a large majority of our children are already in Pre-K by a government forced economic system of both parents having to work to make ends meet. What isn’t in place is most of the children are not available for the clutches of the Fed’s - yet. The “problem” isn’t most families’ lack of access to preschool. It’s Washington’s lack of access to your kids for their institutionalized warehousing, data mining, and pedagogical propaganda schemes. Always keep this in mind – presented to be included in the Congressional Record of January 10, 1963, by then Rep. A.S. Herlong, Jr., of Florida, the official record – Current Communist Goals from the Communist Manifesto in part: 11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. 12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party. 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teacher’s associations. Put the party-line in all textbooks. 25. Breakdown cultural standards of morality. 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as normal, natural and healthy. (the NSES) do exactly that. 40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and divorce. Having just been told by congress Obama had lost all funding of the Race To The Top scam, we now see the funding for this massive Pre-K program being put into place. No secret now – this is just another program to replace (RTTT). The focus is just different - The Preschool Development Grants program will get $250 million for 2015. And it’s another competition pitting states against each other for approval. Never forget the 1983 production of the Reagan Department of Education under the evil leadership of Terrell Bell producing “A Nation at Risk: The Imperative for Education Reform.” Bell created the National Commission on Excellence in Education and those appointed produced A Nation at Risk. This document produced by Reagan's "blue ribbon" education commission proposed to use schools as factories for more effectively turning Millennials - and every generation that follows - into usable raw material for corporate production. Though filled with right-wing rhetoric in content, it reads like a Soviet proclamation on industrial production. Students are redefined as inputs in a system to maximize American corporate competitiveness, productivity and profits which is where we are today. It does sound like todays Common Core State Standards and the communist way of life. Dr. Shirley McCune appearing at the Kansas Governor’s Summit on Education in 1989 with Sen. Alexander stated: “…what we are into is a total restructuring of the society. What is happening in America today…is not simply a change 4 situation and the usual winds of change. What it amounts to is a total transformation of our society…The whole ball game in this particular change society is that there are only two things that really matter. One of those is the information capitol that we can put together…Secondly, to produce Human Capital…we have to prepare students not for today’s society, but for a society that’s 20, 30, 40, 50 years down the road…That’s called Social Change Function of Schools.” And what kind of radically changed, restructured New Age society and education did Dr. McCune have in mind? In her co-authored The Light Shall Set You Free (1996), she talked about a “point of light,” and stated: “Only the souls who are ready to receive the new curriculum will elect to raise their vibrations to match those required to enter the New Age. Did you know that the animals’ souls are the souls of our future children? We are entering the Age of Aquarius…. The goal for all of humanity who will enter the new millennium is to become androgynous…. Educational systems, businesses, political structures and governments all built on self-serving principals, for example, are crumbling, only to be reborn through tremendous pain into higher forms.” Even more frightening than what she said is the fact at the same time she was a research assistant in School-to-Work at Arizona State University, and then she became an administrative assistant to the Superintendent of Public Instruction for the State of Washington. And you wonder how education got to where it is today! That Dr. McCune is a New Age proponent who on November 2, 1989 had used the term “human resource development” more than once is perhaps significant in that earlier in that year, New Age networking Sen. Claiborne Pell had introduced Senate Joint Resolution 135, the “National Commission on Human Resource Development Act,” co-sponsored by Senators Al Gore and Nancy Kassebaum. The resolution was to establish the Center for Human Resource Development and spoke of the “normal aspiration of all citizens to more fully achieve their potential in body, mind and spirit…. [and] there is a role for government to assist in research and education on techniques that promote the… fuller realization of human potential.” Testifying for the measure was Dr. Herbert Benson of Harvard Medical School, who explained the “relaxation response” as experienced by those who practice Zen, Yoga and Transcendental Meditation. The resolution probably would have passed the Senate except that Senator Dan Coates (R) put a “hold” on it and it died. Similar bills – you will be amazed! In case some of you weren’t old enough to realize it in 1989, Newsweek magazine referred to Bill Clinton as the “New Age President,” and the “Renaissance Weekend” he had attended for years was referred to by The New York Times as a “New Age Retreat.” He was also at this 1989 Summit. Interestingly Sen. Lamar Alexander stated at the same 1989 Summit: “The New American School would probably start with babies and go through the eighth grade. It would be all year long. It would be open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Every child would have his or her own computer and work-station. Every child would have a team of teachers that would stay with that child until graduation. These schools would ‘serve children from age three months old to age 18' and they would serve as a 'one-stop shopping' center for welfare services ranging from family planning, health care, and other social services. Legislation should 'assure that all women have access to affordable, high quality parental care and that all infants and children have access to affordable, high quality comprehensive health care'". The New American Schools Development Corporation’s radical design teams have been selected to “break the mold” away from basic-traditional education in order to train (not educate) children for the global workforce. Privatizing education through Charter Schools allows these radical design teams and other private entities such as The Edison Project (Jeb Bush’s buddy) to rob American citizens of their own tax-supported schools. This plan is being supported by both the right and the left-wing political groups who appear to have met in the radical mid-center on education, social control and a global economy. Education has now been changed forever: • Purpose of Education was to transform society from individualism to collectivism • Fact based education is no longer the primary focus of education • Students are to be considered as HUMAN CAPITAL and education’s purpose is to train student’s to work So to fall in line with the dreams of Sen. Alexander we now have ‘The SEED Foundation’ along with SEED charter schools are emerging. How are they different? It is a college-prep, public boarding Charter school providing a 24-hour-a-day, five-day-a-week learning environment for underserved students from sixth through twelfth grade in Miami-Dade, FL. Founder’s Rajiv Vinnakota and Eric Elder are recipients of Oprah Winfrey’s Angel Network’s Use Your Life Award. That in its self should give any parent a warm and fuzzy feeling. Go here to see where all the money is coming from to support this foundation. (pages 18-21) That is certainly a lot of support. Does anyone know the definition of an underserved student? Once again all other students are left out of the equation whether it is a good program or not. This educational society is continually putting barriers up and causing division between what they call underserved or lower income and the rest of the American students. Aren’t you at least a little curious as to why there is so much attention to our babies? Don’t you feel like you have lost control over your own family? In Nov., 2014, Obama signed into law a bipartisan bill to improve the quality of federally subsidized child care provided by the Child Care and Development Block Grant. The bill sets stronger health and safety standards for subsidized care, makes it easier for parents to find and keep quality child care, and takes steps to improve the quality of child care so that children get quality early childhood development services. Sounds wonderful until you realize your children are under the control of the Fed’s. A national poll released by the First Five Years Fund earlier this year found 71 percent of voters, including 60 percent of Republicans, support greater federal investments and involvement in early childhood education. Is this true voting Republicans? The problem I have with the First Five Years Fund is they state they are “bipartisan, however they don’t state who they are, who sits on their board of directors or how they receive their funding. The web site mission: Our mission is to create a smarter, stronger, healthier, and more productive America through early childhood education for disadvantaged children through bi-partisan federal advocacy. What is the deal that every program, grant, voucher, charter school, or scholarship program is being geared to low-income or disadvantaged children? Is it that they will fall in line quicker? Are more vulnerable? More easily indoctrinated? Aren’t the rest of the children in this country worth all of these tax dollars being spent on them through public education, especially when in the final assessment it is all indoctrinating our children?
