Anti Fed Ed Warriors, shifts in time, have happened for us. Down through history. For example, our shift in how we read the Bible, what version we read, our very calendars were also shifted.
We’ve seen and witnessed shifts in beliefs, traditions, money, foods, who leads us, and, how they lead us. So, seeing a modern day shift in education isn’t really all that surprising. Warriors, the truth is THIS shift isn’t going to need 300 years to complete.
I believe we shouldn’t be surprised. I believe we should be striking back!
Why? It’s one thing to warn others by telling them to remove themselves from situations which can harm them. It’s another if we don’t also warn that the shifts are coming from ALL directions and they are all positioned on education.
It doesn’t matter what ‘school choice’ you exercise. These purposed and powerful shifts we are seeing will spare no one.
If our houses were on fire, we’d run out the front door, assuming safety. But what happens when the fire is coming for us from the back door, at the same time?!
In my second installment of this series you are reading, I closed with the fact we’d look at the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s take on all this shifting of academic education to workforce preparation. The workforce preparation is being heralded by DC as ‘great’.
U.S. Dept. of Labor’s Workforce Development Shift:
Warriors, below is a screen shot highlighting the latest news from DoL. They are so proud..and they want you to feel good about the abuse of taxpayer funds (aka: grants) helping the agenda live on.
Warriors, I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel any better about taxpayer abuse at ANY level. Especially the federal level. Why? The U.S. Dept. of Labor is JUST as unconstitutional as the U.S. Dept. of Education. Apprenticeships COMBINE these two agencies and put businesses in charge of the standards.
Our education system is shifting because it’s being hijacked!
Another piece of the educratic shift goes to the ‘soft skills’ workforce development claims is good for our learners (again, any age and any choice of institution). “Soft skills” are those internal attitudes and beliefs which are attached to our values. The CCSS Machine calls it SEL or social emotional learning. Why does workforce education (development) give a hoot about your social emotional status (see item #6)?
Will you conform and serve the workforce well or will you need micro-managing? If you need micro-managing, don’t fret, the federal government has human capital ‘police’ to guide you back into the fold.
Warriors, what federal agency oversees our emotions? (Hint: it’s part of health).
That’s right, the U.S. Dept. of Health/Human Services. ALSO, unconstitutional.
So the shift we’re seeing is in the hands of the ‘unholy trinity’ (as I call them). The trio that makes up U.S. Ed, U.S. Labor, and U.S. Health. In ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) these 3 federal departments were given the largest increases in power, we’ve seen in a long time. Since ESSA was supposed to be an educational law, you’d assume the federal agency over education would have the largest power increase of the 3. No, it was health/human services. Now, go back and look at the top 3 career fields. How many are attached to not only labor, but health care?
1) If you missed my article detailing the HARD and SMART Goals being used across the USA right now, in the name of workforce prep (education), go here.
2) If you’re curious as to just how many of our federal agencies are unconstitutional, this previously published news service has an eye-opener.
3) If you’ve not heard of the Committee for Children, my 2018 article has tons of researched information.
In the fourth installment, we’ll look a bit closer at the workforce shift unfolding before us.
Warriors, one of the things we’ve seen shifting is the funding of education and all that goes with it. Workforce development, in this case, is just the latest. However, it’s the last nail in our coffins, so to speak.
Many, many others have been deeply concerned with America’s direction in shifting taxpayers funds away from We, the People to It, the Government.
Way back in the early 1800s Thomas Jefferson wrote to John Taylor. They both were concerned with funding being used at government excess to fund so many things it quite frankly had no business funding. Hmm, Jefferson and Taylor would be incensed with the shifting and excess today. Shouldn’t we, also, be incensed?
We MUST stop the educrats!
