Hello, my fellow Anti CCSS/Fed Ed Warriors!
In today’s article, I’ll be exposing a set of bills from D.C. where education policy is being exalted over education law. The irony is, the legislation COULD become law in the end.
We’ve seen countless of CCSS Machine examples of ‘policy’ being made more important than the laws created. Congress, is also top notch at confusing policy and law; or at least that’s how it is looking.
Let’s review quickly though, what the differences between the two really are.
Policy is an interpretation of a law or laws. Policy is something anyone can create in response to an existing law or laws. Policy should not be binding. Policies are usually ‘bought and paid for’ ideas posing as powerful regulations.
Laws are binding. Laws must follow a precise order to be created and applied. Laws are not for sale. Laws are powerful regulatory documents. Laws are binding.
Meet the STEM ‘Sisters’ Policy Bills:
Warriors, S 1270 and HR 2653 are currently sitting in the Senate HELP and House’s Science, Space, and Technology Committees respectively. The shared name of the bills? “STEM Opportunities Act of 2017”. As I’ve pointed out before, just because it’s dated 2017, doesn’t mean it’s not an issue. These can come out of committee at any point during what’s left of the 115th Session. Either bill can also show up in the future, too.
Both put a global policy surrounding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) into each Bill for competitive economics.
Here’s the problem: STEM is a UN (United Nations) led program straight out of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). It’s every bit as tied to the CCSS Machine as Bill Gates is. STEM documentation proves the goal all along was a STEM economy in America driven by STEM citizens for global competitiveness. We are well on our way to becoming that ‘STEM nation with a STEM people holding STEM jobs for a global STEM economy’ which was ushered in during previous presidencies.
Bills like S 1270 and HR 2653 simply speed up the process.
Sadly, Warriors, these ‘sisters’ are not exclusive. There are many other STEM bills (as well as STEM laws) floating around D.C. (*Note: STEM has a ‘sister’, too. STEAM: Science Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and, Math.) Just like STEM has UN roots, STEAM has roots from another country. Both are passed off as “American made”. Both are also usually laughed off with this comment, “Oh, we’ve always had science, technology, engineering, and, math. This isn’t new stuff!”
So what do S 1270 and HR 2653 do?
From the opening paragraph before the S 1270’s legislative language begins. “To direct the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy to carry out programs and activities to ensure that Federal science agencies and institutions of higher education receiving Federal research and development funding are fully engaging their entire talent pool, and for other purposes.”
(*Note: HR 2653 has 21 Representatives as sponsor and co-sponsors. S 1270 has 4 Senators as sponsor/co-sponsors.)
The justification for these 2 bills is that Congress has had many STEM related reports over the past 10 years. According to these Reports, not everyone is in the STEM pool. These bills will help correct that. Another justifying statement? It’s critical for our national economy and global competitiveness to educate and train more scientists and engineers. Among the Reports named, three CCSS Machine D.C. taxpayer funded agencies are. The NSF (National Science Foundation, NASA, and the U.S. Dept. of Labor.
Warriors, the NSF was the agency which created the term STEM as a marketing tool!
Reports and data mining from the University of California and the Association for Women in Science are also included. (*Note: AWIS, Assoc. for Women in Science is a global group. Their article devoted to inspiring young girls to be STEM girls, is one you should check out.)
On Page 7, it’s revealed the federal government funds 60 percent of all research conducted in higher education. The entire purpose of the two Bills?
These purposes will be carried out in education and jobs. Notice the amount of the use of the word ‘federal’ in these two.
STEM for Vets:
Yes, Warriors, our U.S. Veterans cannot be left out of the education and job alignment. HR 4323 (Supporting Vets in STEM Careers Act) has passed the U.S. House and is currently in the Senate’s Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee.
Vets will be data mined and encouraged to gain STEM jobs. What a great ‘thanks’ for serving America. Get globally aligned.
H Con Resolution 29:
The U.S. House resolved and the Senate concurred that the entire Congress would commit itself to increase access and jobs (especially for women and minorities) to STEAM education and careers. This Resolution ups the data mining and data tracking of our citizens and uses AP (Advanced Placement courses) as fodder for ’21st Century jobs’.
HR 4375, “STEM Research and Education Effectiveness and Transparency Act”:
This bill has also passed the House and is in the Senate’s Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. This one gives the NSF more power. Targets women and minorities for studies and careers in STEM. This bills will also use federal grants as bait to State level government. (*Note: The Senate Committee mentioned has a huge ‘corner on the market’ for America’s infrastructure, including digital access.)
Warriors, STEM also ties to NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). In this article I laid out for everyone that fact and several others about this affront to America.
Well, there you have it, Warriors. The STEM legislation is ripe in D.C. So, the stench of all those confusing policy as law at our expense.
