ABCs of DumbDown: Are We Training Pigeons Or Educating Children? No Way, ESEA!

A 3D commentary by grassroots teacher Dawn Hoagland

“Are we training pigeons or educating children? That is the big question we need to ask Congress as they re-authorize ESEA (the Elementary and Secondary Education Act)!

There seems to be a new idea, which is actually old, being presented in Congress right now: Children can be trained to do whatever we want them to do – just like pigeons!

In 1977 The District of Columbia’s Associate Superintendent of Schools, Guines, told us about the change from teaching academics to skills training, recommended by the U.S. military and necessary for workforce training.

Some people have been planning for the world-wide conversion to Outcomes Based Education for decades. B.F. Skinner died in 1990 and Benjamin Bloom died in 1999 but Marc Tucker is still around to clap for this incredible transformation. Now he can write, “Dear Hillary, it is finally happening in 2015.”’

ABCs of DumbDown: Common Core Early History

“…’National, Rational, Republican Education, Free for All, at the Expense of All, Conducted under the Guardianship of the State,’ apart from the contaminating influence of parents…”

Be sure to catch Dr. Dennis Cuddy’s fascinating article “Common Core”posted on NewsWithViews 3/2/15, in which he divulges some fascinating early history on how education began to be controlled by an elite “intelligentsia of Horace Mann’s day… the first half of the 1800s.”

Dangers of an Article V Convention with Constitutional Attorney Deborah Stevenson

Constitutional Attorney Deborah Stevenson speaks on the Dangers of an Article V Convention at the Maine State House Tuesday February 17, 2015. Sponsored by We The People Maine, Inc. Phil Merletti is the Master of Ceremonies.

A very informative forum! Debby was great!

Deborah asked Charlotte Iserbyt if she wanted to say a few words. Charlotte didn’t turn that down.

Charlotte’s presentation (starts at 24 min) which was completely unplanned (she was not an invited speaker) is to show you how she managed to spill neocon beans during a Birch Society sponsored event on the Article V Convention.

Charlotte’s presentation was dynamite!

ABCs of DumbDown: Parents are Treated Like Children

No Way, ESEA!
Some background and history to this outrageous incident in Collier County, Florida

Everyone keeps forwarding this video to me.  I ignored it initially but am so tired of receiving it in my email I decided to write a post for my blog. Read the article “Video of the Day – Watch as Florida Parents are Treated Like Children for Questioning School Curriculum,” and watch the video. Here is a brief summary of its contents:

David Bolduc… who is a resident of Naples, Florida recently sent me a note highlighting a video in which he, and several other concerned parents, were reprimanded and treated like little children in a School Board Workshop as a result of them expressing concerns about school curriculum.

To these outstanding and courageous Florida parents, I say, “Welcome to the club!”

IT IS VITAL FOR GOOD PARENTS, NEW TO THE BATTLE, TO UNDERSTAND A BIT OF HISTORY REGARDING THIS BATTLE AND WHO FOUGHT IT, HOW, AND WHO DID NOTHING TO HELP FIGHT IT.  

As an elected school board member in 1978 I visited my son’s third grade classroom, simply to see how he was doing. I didn’t interrupt anything going on. Just sat in the corner and was able to observe that my son was not doing all that well.

That very day I, an elected official, was called into the Superintendent’s Office, during which the Chairperson of the School Board and the head of the teachers’ union berated me for having visited the classroom without permission! The accusations regarding my visit were so “off the wall” I was reduced to tears. Part of our job as board members was to occasionally visit classrooms.

What a horrible experience when the incident was reported to the controlled press, which hated me, and the Leftists/Communists in our small town came down on me with horrendous letters to the editor, etc. (This wasn’t the only time I was called into a small room to be interrogated about something I had done as a legitimate part of my job as a school board member.) This, by the way, is a Communist tactic, in case there are people out there who have not studied the Alinskyan “how” of controlling the community, and been subjected to it.

In regard to incidents young parents are now experiencing that areas horrendous as what we tired soldiers experienced from 1975 to the present.

ABCs of DumbDown: No Way, ESEA! A Teacher’s Courageous Speech…An Example of True Grassroots Teacher Activism!

A 3D Research Report by teacher Dawn Hoagland

“I gave half of the speech (before I was cut off for time allotment) in a public forum which was the Greenburgh Town Hall. A panel of 7 Democrat and Republican legislators convened to listen to public comments on New York Governor Cuomo’s budget and education proposal’s. They collected written comments at the end from anyone who didn’t get to speak or didn’t get to read their full speech.

Below is an excerpt from the speech which I gave to the Westchester lawmakers on Monday.”

YOU America’s Grassroots Parents, Teachers, Voters, Citizens stood up against the ESEA!

Yes, YOU truly grassroots American citizens BLEW THE WHISTLE! Guess who caused this uproar over HR 5? The Grassroots! YOU, YOU, YOU!

Don’t let anybody else take the credit for it! YOU readers of this little unfunded blog, who were totally ignored by the major news media, were the first to go up against  Senator Lamar Alexander’s companion bill and nowH.R. 5.

WE ALL BLEW THE WHISTLE on these bills over a MONTH AGO on this blog!  Has it worked? See the following story in Politico “House leadership wrestles with No Child Left Behind votes,” 2/26/15, and notice who is being now credited for opposition.

YOU are the ones who truly care about YOUR children and grandchildren! This crisis has given YOU grassroots Americans an unprecedented opportunity to learn the disastrous facts about education reform and its ugly consequences on YOUR children, YOUR local school districts, YOUR teachers, and YOUR community. YOU got informed with the facts. YOU stayed up-to-day with well-documented information that equipped YOU to stand. YOU knew what you were talking about. YOU stood your ground! YOU stood up against Goliath!

PRAY! Pray! Pray!

KEEP CALLING, KEEP CALLING, KEEP CALLING, ALL DAY LONG.

Thanks for all your wonderful work.
God bless you and your families.
Keep calling, keep praying until we have final vote.

Josephine County, Oregon, Commissioners Partners With Federal Land Grab

Courtesy of Jeannette Triplett

February 18, 2015 Josephine County, Oregon Board of County Commissioners (BCC) had on their menu the recipe for a Federal Land Grab presented as a sweet deal.

Individually and separately each item on this agenda appears to be exclusive, however, as one looks closer it is easy to see each piece fits together completing the puzzle, which once completed, is not a pretty picture.

Administrative Actions of concern included a proposed Contract for Personal Services between Josephine County and Mark VonHolle. (See Item1.b.)

Sandi Cassanelli addressed this and other issues well, stating “giving money to VonHolle would be a waste of Economic Development money” (EDC).

Cherryl Walker stated that after much due diligence she discovered VonHolle’s past questionable reputation appeared to be a “scam,” that no previous business transactions had come to fruition with VonHolle. This decision resulted in tabling BCC proposed contract with VonHolle.

FCC Commissioner: ‘Future of Entire Internet at Stake’

Source: NextNewsNetwork

Published on Feb 23, 2015
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is scheduled Thursday (02/26/2015) to vote on 322 pages of rules aimed at “regulating” the internet. The document, which will re-classify the internet as a “utility,” will not be available for the public’s review until after it is passed!

While the FCC and Obama are telling the American people that the drastic rule changes will promote “net neutrality” and keep the internet open, nothing could be further from the truth.

What is this really about? CONTROL!

View video HERE.

Why is it that people cannot understand the “control” factor affecting ALL aspects of our lives? Thanks to the “sleepers”…we all pay the price!

Where are the elected officials opposing this control?
