What happened to the good old days?


Before Common Core there was Outcome Based Education (OBE) and Mastery Learning (ML).   These programs were developed through the years by social engineers with the intent of developing a cheap, relatively poorly educated and dependable labor force.   This labor force must be easily managed and trained. 

The system is endorsed by UNESCO to be used all over the world.   It is a part of the One World Government plan.   Add to that the Agenda 21 – Sustainable Development agenda that is racing to take over all phases of our lives.    With several generations of students “dumbed down” – the takeover will be accomplished with little or no opposition.   In fact parents have allowed their children to be pawns in the labs (classrooms) of the facilitators/teachers for a long time.   I started telling people about OBE in the mid 1970’s.   The children that were indoctrinated in the 1970’s are now grandparents.

The methods of indoctrination were designed by social engineers.   Two of the prominent engineers of the system are William Spady and Thomas Sticht.  They worked at the National Institute of Education and the United States Department of Education.    They were both consultants to the Washington, DC government school system.   The system of social engineering was tested on this and other inner city school systems.    The children are used as lab rats for the social engineers.  

Unfortunately, the inner cities were the first targets.   The megalomaniacs who designed these programs do not allow objective testing of the students that have been subjected to their program.   We do know that the Chicago program resulted in one-half of the 39,500 students in the 1980 freshman class failed to graduate.  After that the media would not publish results from the other urban school districts.  The media is on the side of the change-agents.

The program subjects the children to dehumanizing and manipulative conditioning.   Academic skills are not the goals of those who developed the curriculum.   A docile and easily manipulation population of workers is the ultimate goal of the program. 

B. F. Skinner

Behavior Modification is a conditioning process developed by B. F. Skinner, a behavior psychologist from Harvard University.    He believed that students could be trained by methods using Ivan Pavlov’s dehumanizing, manipulative conditioning.   The children are subjected to a system of rewards or punishment depending on the answer that the teacher wants.   The answer she wants probably is contrary to what the child has been taught at home or in his church.  This system is called “behavior modification.”

The program promotes moral relativism, premarital and extra-marital sex, homosexuality, abortion, undermining the parent’s authority, the family and patriotism.   Graphic sexual conversations are encouraged in the classroom (lab).   Much of the learning is group learning and peer pressure is used to change the student’s values.  What used to be considered traditional and basic learning skills is put on a back seat.   Instead the students are exposed to environmentally acceptable, “it takes a village” ideas, multiculturalism and their duty to work for the community.    Thus, the schools do require a student to participate in “civic service.”    The service is usually selected by the “facilitator” (teacher).

The U. S. Department of education does not publish the research that details the failure of all of the schools that used the OBE – ML methods.   The inner cities were the first great losers of the program.  It is quite evident by the huge increases in crime, unwed motherhood (over 70% of African-American babies are born to unwed mothers), rampant drug use, and the destruction of the family unit.  The government does want the population to be dependent on it.   The politicians own those that are dependent on the government.   (I would call that slavery.)   Obviously the government is a corrupt and utter failure in almost everything it takes over.

B. F. Skinner, who developed the method of conditioning students was a militant atheist-humanist, he was a signer of the Humanist Manifesto and a winner of the “humanist of the Year” award.   He was a totalitarian and OBE is a totalitarian philosophy.   There is no room for Christian morality or individual liberty in the ML-OBE, Common Core program of non-education.

The program is designed to change the attitudes, beliefs and values of our nation.   It is designed to destroy all of the Judeo-Christian values and morals of our population.   It is designed to allow for the takeover of our nation by a group of elitists that believe they can rebuild a Utopia on the ashes of our current civilization.   Values Clarification is another term that is used in the implementation of the program.   The school will clarify what they consider the acceptable values. 
Our children are victims of a malevolent group of elitists that think they can change the world.   Far too many people refuse to believe that this anti-God, anti-family, anti-United States curriculum is being taught in our nation’s government schools.   

Rebellious children are coming home from school displaying hateful and selfish attitudes.    When asked why he was acting so selfish a student said that his teacher had told him he could choose to do anything he wanted.  He was the only person that counted.  His ideas were the only ideas of importance.  No one else was important to him.  This is Secular Humanism at work.

It is very important to watch for the buzz words that teachers use when talking down to parents.    They are adamant that they “are the professionals.”    They know what is best.   The parents do not! 

Watch for your district to say that they are “implementing” a new curriculum.   Often they will say that it has been approved by a committee of parents, teachers, administrators and other experts.    They will report that the textbooks, computers, programs, curriculum, etc. has been approved by “consensus” of this representative group.   Nothing could be further from the truth.   The committees are ALWAYS stacked.  The decisions have ALWAYS been made in advance of any meetings. 

Just remember that all Humanists believe in suicide, abortion, euthanasia, sexual perversions, and divorce.  They talk about world peace, but insist that there is no God, no life hereafter, that man can make his own morals, his own values, and his own gods.   

Children are taught to make adult decisions from kindergarten on through high school.   Do they have knowledge to make these decisions?    What experience do they have to base these life shaking decisions?

Mastery Learning – Outcome Based Education has been in place for many years.   Common Core is just the latest and most blatant takeover of our children.

The following information is just the tip of the iceberg.   Many of us worked diligently to get SB 5 passed.  Unfortunately, the unions had more money than we did to buy lots of television ads that were intended to scare people (grandma) into voting to repeal that bill.   SB 5 would have served to put the public employee's retirement systems in a solvent financial status.    Instead GREED and not common sense won that battle.  

How many people in the private sector can retire at fifty years of age with their full salary for the rest of their lives?   On top of that they receive the best medical insurance on the planet.   Also, many teachers work during the summer (and through the year) so that they can receive Social Security benefits on top of their State Teachers Retirement System check - with its annual increase (3%).  

So, while your teacher friends are basking in the sun, you are working like a dog.   Many senior citizens have to work past 80 years of age just to pay their property taxes,   These taxes will be going up to cover the lucrative retirement benefits that the teachers, police and firemen receive.    A fireman's mother told me her 55 year old son was retiring from a local fire department, receiving his full retirement and being hired back at more than he made previously.    We call that double-dipping and it happens all of the time.


14 state teachers unions have almost $700 million in unfunded liabilities

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The good folks at Bellwether Education Partners created a web site called in order to focus some much-needed attention on the structure of the retirement system and its financial implications. The site features a range of opinions about teacher pensions, including that of National Education Association president Dennis Van Roekel, who says flatly: “There is no teacher pension crisis.”
Van Roekel defends the defined benefit system, and explains that a key principle of the system is “When actuarial liabilities exceed actuarial assets, the state and/or employer must make the necessary additional contributions to amortize the unfunded liability in no more than 30 years.”

That seems like a pretty simple solution, but if it were, perhaps Van Roekel’s own organization and its affiliates would not be experiencing their own mammoth shortfalls, due mostly to the pensions and retiree health care benefits they granted their own employees.

An Education Intelligence Agency analysis of 2011-12 Internal Revenue Service filings reveals 14 NEA state affiliates do not have the financial assets to match their liabilities and total almost $700 million in combined debt.

The ability of these affiliates to address their long-term debt by increasing pension contributions, as Van Roekel suggests, is compromised by their short-term debt. Nine of the 14 affiliates had deficits in 2011-12. In fact, the combined spending of all of NEA’s state affiliates exceeded their combined income by almost $24 million.

Even at the national level, NEA’s pension plan for its 2,600 employees and retirees was only 87.9 percent funded in 2012, down from 94.2 percent in 2010.

EIA has constructed a table that lists each of NEA’s state affiliates, its budget deficit or surplus for 2011-12 and its net assets, positive or negative, as of the end of the 2011-12 school year. For purposes of comparison, the table also lists the number of days each affiliate could operate solely on reserves based on its 2011-12 expenditures and net assets.

The 14 state affiliates with a negative net worth are:

* New York State United Teachers, with net assets of negative $302.8 million and a $24 million deficit in 2011-12. NYSUT contributed almost $30.8 million to its employee pension plan that year.

* Michigan Education Association, with net assets of negative $160.5 million, and a $4.8 million deficit in 2011-12. MEA contributed $14.1 million to its employee pension plan, and instituted a three-year, $50 annual assessment on its members for the express purpose of funding the staff pension.

* New Jersey Education Association, with net assets of negative $77.5 million. NJEA had a $13.2 million surplus in 2011-12, even after contributing $17.1 million to pension costs.

* Washington Education Association, with net assets of negative $35.1 million, and a $3.7 million deficit in 2011-12. WEA contributed $8.1 million to its employee pension plan.

* Massachusetts Teachers Association, with net assets of negative $26.7 million. MTA had a $7.8 million surplus in 2011-12 after contributing $4.1 million to its employee pension plan.

* Illinois Education Association, with net assets of negative $17.7 million, and a $17.9 million deficit in 2011-12. IEA paid $26.3 million to its employee pension plan. Despite its own mess, IEA is adamantly opposed to the Illinois state government’s efforts to address public employee pension debt.

* Indiana State Teachers Association, with net assets of negative $16.4 million, and a $4.5 million deficit in 2011-12. ISTA paid $4.1 million toward employee pensions.

* Iowa State Education Association, with net assets of negative $12.7 million, and a $4.3 million deficit in 2011-12. ISEA paid $2.2 million into its employee pension plan.

* Ohio Education Association, with net assets of negative $11.5 million, and a $1.2 million deficit in 2011-12. OEA paid $8.2 million in pension costs.

* Texas State Teachers Association, with net assets of negative $11.3 million, and a $243,000 deficit in 2011-12. TSTA contributed $1.4 million to its pension plan, and holds a $1.6 million quasi-endowment “to sustain the association for the long-term.”

* Pennsylvania State Education Association, with net assets of negative $8.3 million, though it did have a $9.2 million surplus in 2011-12, suggesting another similar year would put it in the black. It spent $7.3 million on pensions.

* Virginia Education Association, with net assets of negative $5.1 million, and a budget surplus of $1 million. VEA contributed almost $2.2 million to its employee pension plan.

* West Virginia Education Association, with net assets of negative $2.2 million, and a budget surplus of $132,000. It is unclear how much WVEA contributed to its employee pension plan in 2011-12, but its pension liabilities totaled $3.7 million.

* Georgia Association of Educators, with net assets of negative $1.8 million, and a $476,000 deficit in 2011-12. GAE paid $746,000 to its employee pension plan.

NEA’s largest affiliates are overrepresented on this list. This is problematic because the health of the large affiliates, particularly in collective bargaining states with agency fee provisions, enables NEA national to funnel crucial subsidies to its small affiliates. Many small affiliates could not sustain themselves at current levels without those funds.

As a union, NEA believes state governments should extract more revenues from taxpayers to sustain the defined benefit system of public employees. As an employer, NEA is aware of the pitfalls of extracting more dues money from members to sustain the much more generous defined benefit system of union employees.

It’s a race against time for NEA as it attempts to stave off public pension reform before it is swamped by its own private pension costs.

It begins: New NYC schools chancellor will push ‘progressive agenda’  

It begins: New NYC schools chancellor will push ‘progressive agenda’

Why are leftist, liberal, Communist women so darn ugly?  These vermin do spew vicious venom and viral propaganda.  They hate the family, they hate moms, they hate the taxpayers, they punish anyone that doesn't agree with them and the list is endless.  They want change.   The woman above will "enforce" her own version of "Common Core."    You can bet it will be worse than the original.    

These Liberal-Progressive beasts usually call themselves "feminists."    There is not a smidgen of femininity about them.  It is interesting that when you see lesbians on TV they are always hot, dressed to kill and wearing make-up.   When they get into politics they are as ugly and as militant as humanly possible.    Maybe that is why they are so angry and so power hungry.   Possibly, they resent their appearance.   

These slugs are so eager to abort the unborn.   They are eager to destroy the family.  They are especially eager to indoctrinate the young.   Usually they do not have any children.of their own, but they are willing to tell everyone else how to raise their children.    

The latest plan (long in the planning) is to force all children to be kept in school all day.    Remember parents are not necessary.   Moms are "stupid" and not capable of rearing their children.  Three years of age is not young enough?  The mom should potty train the child and then send him off to the government indoctrination center.   

An "Early Childhood Development Center" will be part of every school district.  By forcing parents to send their children to these centers it will remove almost all of the family influence on the children..  These indoctrination centers will be "free-baby-sitting-centers.  For many women these will allow them the entire day to do their drugs and produce more dependents for larger welfare checks to pay for their drugs.  It will also be a place to babysit millions of illegal children.  The purpose is to dumb down everyone to achieve their socialist/Communist idea of how America should be.

All will be indoctrinated to believe that "the government" will take care of them.   Their plan doesn't include thinking about "What happens when they run out of other people's money?"  By the time the money runs out their mission will be accomplished.   The United States of America will be "changed" as we knew it.    Our liberty will be erased and the children who attended the government schools will not know the difference.    

They will be able to bow to the likes of the above feminist and the likes of the Communists that control our politics. 

"Evil preaches tolerance until it is dominant and then it seeks to silence good."    Charles J. Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia.
