This article will be updated and reposted as I gather information. This topic is gaining traction in all 50 states because at its core it seeks to divide the parent from the child in all things educational. It is a federal/global guideline established without oversight and being implented without parental discretion, while at the same time they change the FERPA laws to diminish child privacy rights and seek to monitor every aspect of our children in order to “help them” find their place in society.
http://www.corestandards.org/the-standards From the Common Core State Standards Initiative, this is a link to proposed new standards.
Common Core Curriculum is a new set of learning standards for kindergarten through high school that have been implemented with alarming speed and without proper oversight, and testing. It is Federal in scope, and all 50 states will be using the same set of standards.

As I research I find myself more and more confounded. What is the proper approach to education? I have very little formal education myself, so I have no basis to argue statistics and studies which can be manipulated any which way. I must rely on common sense, as I try and teach myself some of the history of the philosophy of education. I keep coming back to the name John Dewey, and how he was pivotal in the formation of our modern education system.

In an oh so unsurprising reversal, the weak kneed and lilly-willed speaker of the house John Boehner said on Thursday that the repeal of Obamacare would no longer be his mission. They will not repeal Obamacare, they never intended to.
The tax that is not a tax, that was passed by the Supreme Court illegally (a tax must originate in the house), under the farce of the interstate commerce…
Well, to put it bluntly, this is what you are looking forward to:
Agenda 21, is a United Nations program designed to create a world based on sustainability. According to the Agenda 21 website, it was passed by 178 countries at a UN conference in Rio in June of 1992.
The Agenda 21 Website is here.
Agenda 21 may sound benign at first, but a little digging sheds a lot of light on this altogether frightening plan. It is a 40 chapter guide to implementing voluntary environmental laws and regulations for a worldwide system of compliance.
Many communities in the United States are participating right now. The International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives, or ICLEI. I found out my hometown spends money on this, does yours?
For those in Johnson County Kansas here’s a video link from NOlathe’s Blog: http://nolathe.net/2012/02/24/county-to-fund-iclei-research-and-development-project/
and the government site:
Using the auspices of environmentalism, the ulterior motive of Agenda 21 may very well be the abrogation of personal property rights and the globalized redistribution of wealth and even (as crazy as it sounds) population redistribution into giant “intelligent” cities.
Now, I’m not wearing my tin foil hat at the moment, and I don’t see Agenda 21 in the shadows of every coincidental happenstance, but the facts are alarming. The United Nations has been crafting legislature on Agenda 21 for over 20 years, and it is here to be reckoned with because it will not go away on its own.
