“Coming For Your Babies: A Plan Comes to Fruition”

by Lynne M. Taylor

for the Patriot Institute

Fellow Patriots, do you remember the year it was when (then) Governor Lamar Alexander uttered the infamous words seen below?

“I would think the Brand New American School would be year-round, open from 6:00 to 6:00.

A second characteristic might be that these schools will serve children from age 3 months old to age 18. That may be a shocking thought to you; but, if you were to do an inventory of every baby in your community and think about what the needs of those babies were for the next four or five years, you might see that those needs might not be served any other way.”

(You can watch him speak these words, and others, here.)

The year was 1989. Where Alexander was speaking was a National Governors Conference on education. As was pointed out in the Missouri Education Watchdog article (‘infamous words’ seen above), Alexander named New American Schools Development Corporation (NASDC). Today, NASDC is simply NAS (New American Schools).

Basically, Patriots, it was a well thought out grab at our schools and the citizens within by private business. These P3s (public private partnerships) have ruined academic education from then until now. It’s been replaced with industry-credentialed and aligned standards.

Not only do we find Alexander’s words as Governor coming to fruition, but through his words and actions as former U.S. Secretary of Education. As the main U.S. Senator credited with leading the charge on ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) and the current re-writing of HEA (Higher Education Act), the ‘cradle to career’ streamlined school, once bragged about, is here.

It’s already in your State. The trouble is, the efforts to enforce ‘babies to 3rd grade’ streamlined education are ramping up big time.

From “The Old North State”:

Patriots, I live in North Carolina. What you see below was an email I received a few days ago.

(You can access the NC  ‘fact sheet’ here.)

The email announcement was letting me know that on March 15th, 2018, a meeting for the Birth through 3rd Grade Interagency Council will be holding its first meeting to set up early education standards, assessments (aka: tests), data-tracking (aka: data driven outcomes), how to engage the family, how all this streamlining will be paid for, and, how it all will be governed.

The NC Legislation to establish this Council, is here.

The 2014-18 Strategic Education Plan (where early learning is goal #3) from the U.S. Dept. of Education.

The Education Commission of the States published an early learner Primer in 2014. Part of the alignment?

Full day 5 year old preschools.

The Education Commission of the States updated their Primer in 2016 to reflect ESSA. The irony? Many of the Alexander key points from 1989 can still be seen!

Patriots, every bit of what you see above was mandated in ESSA when it was passed into law!

How do I know? I’ve written about the mandates for early education several times.

From 2015, the CCSS Machine’s Pre-K ‘research’.

From 2016, this article describes some of the shifting.

From 2016, the Early Learners Framework for Education.

From late 2016, the SEL (social and emotional learning) manipulation for the little citizens of America.

From 2017, how early education’s ESSA grasp includes many health services.

From 2017, the TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) will ensnare early education.

From late 2017, how Zero to Five and E-health forms will use ESSA mandates for ‘wrap around’ services to encompass students and families. (*Note: This article has its related previous article embedded. Be sure to look for “To Your Health” to find that information.)

Patriots, the dangers we need to recognize are that many children, from the time they are born, stay at home. It should be obvious that it doesn’t matter what school you will choose for these youngsters.

Keeping them from the programs which target you in your home IS vital! Know your 1st and 4th Amendments, Patriots! Do not accept government funding in any form. Often times, we’re told to remove our children from the schools receiving government funds. However, this type of birth to third grade overreach is a new ball game. How? It brings it literally into your family’s private home. It also should be pointed out that the U.S. Dept. of Education’s Family Ambassador Programs are funded by P3s to ‘engage’ your family for the ‘success’ of every student within your home.
