     “IN VIRTUALLY EVERY MASS SCHOOL SHOOTING DURING THE PAST 15 YEARS, THE SHOOTER HAS BEEN ON OR IN WITHDRAWAL FROM PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS,” observed Lawrence Hunter of the Social Security Institute.

    Despite the abundance of such evidence and a glut of scientific studies proving real danger,

    “THERE HAS YET TO BE A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION ON THE LINK BETWEEN PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS AND ACTS OF SENSELESS VIOLENCE,”

    according to THE CITIZENS COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS INTERNATIONAL (CCHRI), a non-profit mental health watchdog group.

    CCHRI states that GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ARE WELL AWARE OF THE CONNECTION. “Between 2004 and 2011, there have been over 11,000 reports to the U.S. FDA’s MedWatch system of PSYCHIATRIC DRUG SIDE EFFECTS RELATED TO VIOLENCE,” including 300 homicides. The FDA estimates this total is less than 10 percent of the actual number of incidents since most go unreported.

    JUN 19, 2015  Even, Presidential candidate and former Texas governor Rick Perry

    Quote  “I think there’s a real issue to be talked about: It seems to me — again, without having all the details about this one — that these individuals have been medicated. And there may be a real issue in this country, from the standpoint of these drugs, and how they’re used… So, I mean, there are a lot of issues here underlying this that I think we as a country need to have a conversation about,” Perry concluded, “rather than just the knee-jerk reaction of saying, you know, if we can just take all the guns away this won’t happen.”

    CONNECTICUT – December 14, 2012: 20-year-old Adam Lanza walked onto the Sandy Hook Elementary School  and  fatally shot 20 children between six and seven years old, as well as six adult staff members

    The Connecticut Case

    What did the American people  learn from Sandy Hook?

    Fox News reported, after an initial search of Lanza’s home, investigators found no indication the 20-year-old was taking prescriptions. Other evidence suggests he was. Louise Tambascio, a friend of Lanza’s mother, told CBS News’ Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes, “I know he was on medication and everything.” ABC News also interviewed Tambascio, who repeated, “I knew he was on medication.”

    Connecticut’s chief medical examiner, H. Wayne Carver II, is currently conducting toxicology exams to determine if Lanza was using any behavior-modifying drugs. Many think it likely. Days after the Sandy Hook massacre, standing outside Lanza’s home,

    CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta commented, “What medications was he on? I’m specifically talking about antidepressants. If you look at the studies of other shootings like this that have happened, medications like this were a common factor.”

    In a December 16 Fox News interview, former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge also warned of the undeniable link between youth violence and psychiatric drugs.

    Most media choose to ignore such warnings and even downplay the obvious. The Associated Press published a January 11 report entitled, “Connecticut shooting: Medical examiner says gunman’s body won’t reveal much.” It claims that “Connecticut’s chief medical examiner says he doubts toxicological tests and genetic analysis of the body of the gunman who fatally shot 20 children and six educators at an elementary school will explain his actions.” In a glaring contradiction the same article later notes, “The toxicology exam, which could take several weeks, involves testing body fluids for psychiatric medications or illegal substances. Carver said the result could provide ‘potentially valuable information’ in creating a full picture of Lanza.”

    Meanwhile, government officials and anti-gun activists continue to use the tragedy in the Constitution State to deprive Americans of the constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Whether Adam Lanza’s toxicology tests reveal psychiatric medications were involved in his rampage is not likely to deter their frenzied zeal.

    From the moment news emerged Friday that a young man had carried out a horrific massacre of elementary-school children, politicians from local city halls to the White House have been restoking the age-old push for more gun control. While guns have been a common denominator in mass slayings at schools by teens, THERE’S ANOTHER FAMILIAR ELEMENT THAT SEEMS INCREASINGLY TO BE MINIMIZED.

    Some 90 percent of school shootings over more than a decade have been linked to a widely prescribed type of antidepressant called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs, according to British psychiatrist Dr. David Healy, a founder of RxISK.org, an independent website for researching and reporting on prescription drugs.

     “IN VIRTUALLY EVERY MASS SCHOOL SHOOTING DURING THE PAST 15 YEARS, THE SHOOTER HAS BEEN ON OR IN WITHDRAWAL FROM PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS,” observed Lawrence Hunter of the Social Security Institute.

    “YET, FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS CONTINUE TO IGNORE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS AND MURDEROUS VIOLENCE,

     preferring instead to exploit these tragedies in an oppressive and unconstitutional power grab to snatch guns away from innocent, law-abiding people who are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution the right to own and bear arms to deter government tyranny and to use firearms in self defense against any miscreant who would do them harm.”

    —————————————————————————-

    The bottom line…..

    Despite the abundance of such evidence and a glut of scientific studies proving real danger, “THERE HAS YET TO BE A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION ON THE LINK BETWEEN PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS AND ACTS OF SENSELESS VIOLENCE,” according to THE CITIZENS COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS INTERNATIONAL (CCHRI), a non-profit mental health watchdog group.


  • School Shootings Lessons Learned 2012- 2018

    2012-2018 The lessons of this report are simple? We must improve school security, increase mental health services, and require background checks for all gun purchases so we can keep firearms out of the hands of dangerous people.

    2012-2018 We should not wait for another gun violence tragedy to institute these reforms and other common sense measures. The cost of inaction is too great.”

    ———————————————————————————

    Feb 15, 2018 President Trump said, Our administration is working closely with local authorities to investigate the shooting and learn everything we can. We are committed to working with state and local leaders to help secure our schools and TACKLE THE DIFFICULT ISSUE OF MENTAL HEALTH.

    Florida School Shooting: Suspect, Death Toll – What to Know | Time

    time.com › U.S. › Crime

    4 hours ago – The FBI is saying they were warned about a YouTube comment that may have come from the Florida high school shooter five months ago. “In 2017, the FBI received information about a comment made on a YouTube channel. The comment simply said, ‘I’m going to be a professional school shooter.

    What did the American people  learn from Sandy Hook?

    JUDGE CARL J. SCHUMAN  a Connecticut Superior Court Judge overturned a ruling by the State’s Freedom of Information Commission ordering police to release private documents belonging to Adam Lanza, the man who fatally shot his mother, then 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School before turning the gun on himself in December 2012.

    JUDGE CARL J. Schuman noted that the documents—notebooks, a spreadsheet and other items detailing Lanza’s obsession with violence and previous mass shooters—may have come out if there had been a trial. He sought to apply his ruling to other cases without trials that do not necessarily end in the perpetrator’s death. “Future cases will undoubtedly involve this sort of involuntary seizure of a victim’s diary or other personal notes, a person’s phone records, computer or email communications, bank records, medical records, business records, and other items,” he wrote.

     “Exposure of these items to the public when the state has not seen a need to do so in the criminal case entails a significant invasion of the owner’s privacy and interference with his or her property rights.”

    The publisher and editor-in-chief of the Courant said he and his colleagues were “disappointed in the decision and are currently assessing our options.”

    74 More School Shootings

    No parent should have to fear for the life of their child when they drop them off at school.

     To ‘wag the dog’ means to PURPOSELY DIVERT ATTENTION from what would otherwise be of greater importance, to something else of lesser significance.

     By doing so, the lesser-significant event is catapulted into the limelight, DROWNING PROPER ATTENTION TO WHAT WAS ORIGINALLY THE MORE IMPORTANT ISSUE.

    INDEED, IS THERE NO CONGRESSIONAL FUNDING , no ways? no means? FOR BUILDING, RUNNING AND MAINTAINING PRISONS AND MENTAL HOSPITALS?

    Why is there is no FUNDING for the  incarceration or effective treatment for the mentally ill?

    Why do our elected representative fund and legislate to treat the EFFECT of school shootings?

    AND FAIL TO PROVIDE FUNDING AND LEGISLATION FOR  an EFFECTIVE CURE FOR THE CAUSE?

    Psychiatric Meds: Pills that Kill?

    Psychiatric Meds: Pills that Kill?

    34 School shooters/school related violence committed by those under the influence of psychiatric drugs

    Seattle, Washington – June 5, 2014: 26-year-old Aaron Ybarra opened fire with a shotgun at Seattle Pacific University, killing one student and wounding two others. Ybarra planned to kill as many people as possible and then kill himself. In 2012, Ybarra reported that he had been prescribed the antidepressant Prozac and antipsychotic Risperdal. A report from his counselor in December of 2013 said that he was taking Prozac at the time and planned to continue to meet with his psychiatrist and therapist as needed.

     “In virtually every mass school shooting during the past 15 years, the shooter has been on or in withdrawal from psychiatric drugs,” observed Lawrence Hunter of the Social Security Institute. “YET, FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS CONTINUE TO IGNORE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS AND MURDEROUS VIOLENCE, preferring instead to exploit these tragedies in an oppressive and unconstitutional power grab to snatch guns away from innocent, law-abiding people who are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution the right to own and bear arms to deter government tyranny and to use firearms in self defense against any miscreant who would do them harm.”

    Update Facts on School Shootings

    Posted on December 6, 2014 1:31 pm by Pearl Rains Hewett

    A Message From the Chairman

    Chairman Herman Williams, Sr. Responds to Tragedy at Marysville Pilchuck High School

    TULALIP, WA — October 24, 2014

    Our community is reeling from this experience, so we ask that the media and the public honor the families and our children in this time of grief.

    Sadly, we are now experiencing what has become A NATIONAL TREND, which we, as a society, must address. These are our children. They are suffering, and their lives will be forever changed.

    Chairman Herman Williams Sr., offered this statement:

    “Our priority is now on our children and young people. ”

    ———————————————————————————————————–

    The message from Chairman Herman Williams, Sr. really hit home with me.

    We share this priority on our children and young people and we share family members in the Marysville community. Twelve members of my family live, work and attend school in Marysville.

    I called Chairman Herman Williams on Tues. Nov. 4, 2014 at 10:45am and left a message for him, indeed “WE” must find out why this is happening and find a way to stop it!

    ———————————————————————————

    Chairman Herman Williams, Sr.  returned my call on Dec. 3, 2014. It was not a long conversation.

    We  are both deeply concerned about the school shootings.

    Common sense dictates that new scientific based solutions to what has become A NATIONAL TREND,  must  be addressed

    Chairman Williams has meetings with influential people, he is in a position to uncover facts.  Those facts can be used to implement change.

    I told Herman that I have researched the history, documented and posted many FACTUAL comments regarding the NATIONAL TREND  of school shootings.

    This paragraph stands out

    In addition, far more needs to be done TO ADDRESS MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES. Congress should stop its efforts to repeal the nation’s mental health parity law BECAUSE IT SIMPLY MAKES SENSE THAT ILLNESSES ABOVE THE NECK SHOULD BE TREATED THE SAME AS ILLNESSES BELOW THE NECK. More resources must also be provided to adequately treat mental illness and to train and retain mental health professionals.
    ———————————————————————————

    This is my response to Rep. Kilmer

    A treatable physical medical disease is not MENTAL ILLNESS

    ———————————————————
    Apr 1, 2015 the Mayo Clinic, has identified the MEDICAL DISEASE.
    as hypogonadism, in which the pre-pubertal male body is unable to produce normal amounts of testosterone.

    ———————————————————
    Erectile dysfunction (ED) low testosterone ( LOW T) in all males and pre-pubertal male is a physically observable, testable, treatable and manageable medical disease.

    —————————————————————–
    TV ADS  50% of all men over 50 men  are suffering some type of erectile dysfunction (ED) low testosterone ( LOW T) and can’t get an erection, they are treated for the medical disease.

    ————————————————————————-
    Imagine what would happen if the (LOW T) and (ED) men were all denied medical treatment, and they were told by the government

    THAT (LOW T) and (ED) WAS ALL IN THEIR HEAD?

    Hmmm… Using the Kilmer rational that  a PHYSICAL TREATABLE DISEASE below the neck? should be treated the same as an MENTAL ILLNESSES above the neck?

    Dear Ms. Hewett,
    Thank you for contacting me about preventing GUN violence. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

    When my wife Jennifer and I drop our KIDS off at school, we want them to be filled with hope and excitement about the day ahead – never with questions about whether they will be safe. That’s what all parents want.

    In the face of a number of tragic shootings, including some in our own region, we know more can and must be done to prevent these tragedies.

    Nothing is more important to me than ensuring the safety of our CHILDREN. I am continuing to push Congress to move forward on commonsense legislation that would keep GUNS out of the hands of felons and those legally prohibited to have GUNS It makes sense to improve and expand the background check system because keeping GUNS out of the hands of felons and the mentally ill will have a real impact on reducing GUN violence.

    Right now, our federal background check system is not utilized for all sales. While licensed dealers are required to conduct background checks on all of their sales, online intrastate sellers and private sellers are not required to conduct background checks. As a consequence, the current federal system leaves a loophole for folks that would otherwise be denied a GUN through licensed sellers – felons, domestic abusers, and those prohibited due to a dangerous mental illness. As a consequence, GUNS are ending up in the wrong hands. We can’t accept that. Too much is at stake.

    One bright spot is that last year the Congress increased resources for our existing background checks system. Despite that, I think there is still more that we can do.

    I am proud to be a cosponsor of H.R. 1217, the Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act, a bipartisan bill that would require universal background checks — including requiring background checks at GUN shows, on all GUN sales over the internet, and sales through classified advertisements. I believe this legislation is a common sense way to strengthen public safety while protecting the Second Amendment rights of responsible GUN owners.

    While there’s more that needs to be done, Congress can and should move quickly and thoughtfully to keep our neighborhoods and schools safe. I’ll continue to urge House Leadership to bring this bill forward.

    In addition, far more needs to be done to address mental health issues. Congress should stop its efforts to repeal the nation’s mental health parity law because it simply makes sense that illnesses above the neck should be treated the same as illnesses below the neck. More resources must also be provided to adequately treat mental illness and to train and retain mental health professionals.

    Those of us who care about preventing these senseless acts of violence – as parents and as policy makers – are not giving up the fight.

    Thank you for your advocacy and for sharing why preventing GUN violence is important to you. I encourage you to continue to share your views with me on this topic or any other issue. It is an honor to serve as your representative.

    Sincerely,

    Derek Kilmer

    CONGRESS HAS FAILED TO CONNECT? INVESTIGATE? AND ACT ON THE
    INCREASE IN SCHOOL SHOOTINGS LINKED TO ANTIDEPRESSANT PRESCRIPTION DRUGS

    More than 60 school shootings among and more than 4,800 violent attacks have been linked to psychiatric drugs.

    While in the wake to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre most of the debate has centered around gun control, perhaps more of the debate should be focused on the mood altering drugs that people are being given as more than 60 school shootings among and more than 4,800 violent attacks have been linked to PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS.

    Despite mounting evidence that antidepressants and certain other drugs can induce violent behavior and has led to the tragic death of spouses, family members and friends,

    The question of dependency on [drugs such as Ritalin] quickly turns from a medical INTO A POLITICAL QUESTION whose very definition involves not merely the psychological state of the patient but also the social and political impositions of the society and ITS INSTITUTIONS . . . .
    [I]n all such cases of liberty, this one has implications for every member of the population, not merely those who are chemically incarcerated. . . .IT IS THE IDEOLOGY OF DRUGGING, THE IDEA THAT PEOPLE CAN AND SHOULD BE CHEMICALLY MANAGED, AND THAT REPRESENTS THE MOST PERVASIVE IMPOSITION ON PERSONAL LIBERTY AND THE MOST DANGEROUS EXTENSION OF AUTHORITY.
    The . . . counterargument that a certain drug isn’t hurting a certain child . . . and that one should not sacrifice his well-being to some political abstraction, is itself a disguised political argument in defense of the standards that determine his . . . success.

    Dear Ms. Hewett,
    Thank you for contacting me about preventing GUN violence. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
    My thoughts and prayers are with the VICTIMS and their families of the tragedies that have recently rattled the West Coast in Isla Vista, Portland, and in our state at Seattle Pacific University.
    When my wife Jennifer and I drop our KIDS off at school, we want them to be filled with hope and excitement about the day ahead – never with questions about whether they will be safe. That’s what all parents want.
    It’s been over a year since the tragedy in Newtown, and unfortunately Congress still hasn’t made enough progress on legislation that would keep our SONS AND DAUGHTERS safe. Thus far, Congress has failed to make progress on mental health funding. It has failed to make progress on school safety. And it has failed to make any progress in the effort to make sure FIREARMS don’t end up in the hands of felons or people with dangerous mental illness.
    I find this incredibly disappointing – not simply as a member of Congress who has been fighting to move forward on each of these issues, but as a dad.
    But I’m not willing to give up.
    Nothing is more important to me than ensuring the safety of our CHILDREN. Congress still must find ways to move forward on commonsense legislation to keep GUNS out of the hands of felons and people with dangerous mental illness. It’s estimated that 40 percent of GUN owners don’t go through a background check when purchasing a GUN. As a consequence, GUNS are ending up in the wrong hands. We can’t accept that. Too much is at stake.
    One bright spot is that the House recently passed a strong bipartisan amendment to increase resources for our existing background checks system. Despite that, I think there is still more that we can do.
    I am proud to be a cosponsor of H.R. 1565, a bipartisan bill that would require universal background checks – including requiring background checks at GUN shows, on all GUN sales over the internet, and sales through classified advertisements.

    From the book: Chemical Warfare Toxicology : Volume 2: Management of Poisoning

    DESPITE ONGOING EFFORTS TO PROHIBIT THE PRODUCTION, STORAGE AND USE OF CHEMICAL WARFARE AGENTS, RECENT WORLD EVENTS HIGHLIGHT THE ENDURING THREAT TO THE POPULATION FROM THESE AGENTS. Providing an up-to-date treatise on the ongoing research into the toxicology of chemical warfare agents, this book will appeal to toxicologists, biochemists and weapons specialists working in industry and academia, and anyone with an interest in chemical warfare toxicology or exposure.

    Fentanyls are solid analgesic–anaesthetics used in human and veterinary medicine. The science relevant to their use in defence and security is presented in this chapter. This includes a timeline of the pharmaceutical development of fentanyls and their medicinal uses.

     1954 FACTOR III MOTHER full unedited text

    The female element of human society is ruled by emotion first and logic second. In the battle between logic and imagination, imagination always wins, fantasy prevails, maternal instinct dominates so that the child comes first and the future comes second. A woman with a newborn baby is too starry-eyed to see a wealthy man’s cannon fodder or a cheap source of slave labor.

     A woman must, however, be conditioned to accept the transition to “reality” when it comes, or sooner.

    As the transition becomes more difficult to manage, the family unit must be carefully disintegrated, and state controlled public education and state operated child care centers must become more common and legally enforced so as to begin the detachment of the child from the mother and the father at an earlier age. Inoculation of behavioral drugs can speed the transition for the child (mandatory).

    CAUTION: A woman’s impulsive anger can override her fear. An irate woman’s power must never be underestimated, and her power over a pussy-whipped husband must likewise never be underestimated. It got women the vote in 1920.

    “God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.”

    “It is a fundamental truth that the responsibilities of motherhood cannot be successfully delegated. No, not to day-care centers, not to schools, not to nurseries, not to babysitters. We become enamored with men’s theories such as the idea of preschool training outside the home for young children. Not only does this put added pressure on the budget, but it places young children in an environment away from mother’s influence. Too often the pressure for popularity, on children and teens, places an economic burden on the income of the father, so mother feels she must go to work to satisfy her children’s needs. That decision can be most shortsighted. It is mother’s influence during the crucial formative years that forms a child’s basic character. Home is the place where a child learns faith, feels love, and thereby learns from mother’s loving example to choose righteousness. How vital are mother’s influence and teaching in the home—and how apparent when neglected!”

    This is one of my favorite reminders for Mother’s on Mother’s Day 2016

    Babies Don’t Keep

    Mother, O Mother, come shake out your cloth,
    Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
    Hang out the washing, make up the bed,
    Sew on a button and butter the bread.

    Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?
    She’s up in the nursery, blissfully rocking.

    Oh, I’ve grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue,
    Lullabye, rockabye, lullabye loo.
    Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
    Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo

    The shopping’s not done and there’s nothing for stew
    And out in the yard there’s a hullabaloo
    But I’m playing Kanga and this is my Roo
    Look! Aren’t his eyes the most wonderful hue?
    Lullabye, rockaby lullabye loo.

    The cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow
    But children grow up as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
    So quiet down cobwebs; Dust go to sleep!
    I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.

    Author : Ruth Hulburt Hamilton

    Song for a Fifth Child  published in Ladies Home Journal in 1958 and has found a treasured place in the hearts of mothers for generations and today it is widely known as Babies Don’t Keep.

    Every Child Achieves Act: A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing
    www.americanprinciplesinaction.org/…/every-child-achieves-act-a-wolf-i…
    Jul 1, 2015 – American Principles In Action has just released a list of 21 reasons to oppose the Every Child Achieves Act.
    The Every Child Achieves Act – A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing
    No Child Left Behind Rewrite Will Drive a National Education Agenda The following is a nonexhaustive list of fatal problems with the bill.
    ————————————————
    1. The Every Child Achieves Act (ECAA) is 792 pages, 122 pages (20%) longer than No Child Left Behind (NCLB) — hardly a move in the right direction.

    2. Proponents cite the inclusion of new language restricting the U.S. Department of Education (USED) from, for example, coercing states into adopting the Common Core national standards. However: a. That language largely replicates existing protections (see Robert
    Eitel & Kent Talbert, The Road to a National Curriculum, PIONEER
    INSTITUTE, no.81 (2012)); b. As with existing protections, the proposed provisions fail to provide an enforcement mechanism for the states and thus depend on the goodwill of USED or congressional action (which was non-existent when USED foisted Common Core on the states); c. ECAA negates the protections anyway: A stated purpose is for state alignment to the same “college-and-career-ready” standards –language that is code for Common Core. Sec. 1001. See further discussion below.

    3. ECAA continues the USED-state master-servant relationship, requiring states to submit education plans and giving USED enormous authority to approve them. Sec. 1111(a)(4).

    4. ECAA retains federal testing mandates that children be tested for math and English in each grade 3-8 and for science once in each of the following grade spans: 3-5, 6-9, and 10-12. It also requires that these test scores be used as a “substantial” portion of a school’s grade to determine which schools will be identified for interventions, thus continuing the “teach-to-the-test” environment of NCLB. Sec. 1111(b)(2)(B)(v)(I)(aa)-(bb) and Sec. 1111(b)(3)(B)(iii)(II).

    5. ECAA adds to the list of federal programs a state must consult in developing its plan and requires standards to be aligned with federally approved workforce and early-childhood standards. Sec. 1111(a)(1) & Sec.1111(b)(1)(D).

    6. If a state plan fails to meet the requirements of a listed program, USED has the authority to disqualify the state plan unless the state agrees to make the mandated changes. Any prohibitions on USED’s interfering with state standards, assessments, and accountability don’t apply to the “requirements” of the Act. Sec. 1111(a)(4),(5).
    7. ECAA requires statewide curriculum standards, assessments, and accountability systems to prepare students “for postsecondary education or the workforce,” i.e.,
    “college- and career-ready.” The preparation for postsecondary education must (theoretically) enable the student to succeed “without remediation.” All this is code language for Common Core-aligned standards. Sec. 1111(b)(1)(D), (b)(3)(B). It thus puts downward pressure on states to keep Common Core standards, or similar standards, in place.
    8. ECAA contains a requirement for states to “demonstrate” that the state standards are “aligned” to the same criteria used to establish Common Core: “entrance requirements, without the need for academic remediation, for the system of public higher education.” Any prohibition included to stop USED from coercing states to use Common Core or other specific standards is meaningless. USED won’t have to force anything, because alignment to the same criteria as “college-and-career-ready” is a requirement of the bill. Sec. 1111(b)(1)(D)(i)-(ii).
    9. ECAA mandates that a state’s accountability system penalize schools that don’t enforce the requirement that 95% of all their students take the state assessment: The state must provide “a clear and understandable explanation of how the State will factor this requirement [95% student participation in state assessments] into their accountability system determinations.” This is an attack on parental rights and the Opt-Out movement. Sec. 1111 (b)(3)(B)(vi).
    10. ECAA dictates particular types of testing that are extraordinarily expensive, have a history of failure, and are designed to inject more intrusive psychological data-collection and psychological profiling/manipulation into the assessments. Sec. 1111(b)(2)(B)(vi) and (xiii).
    11. ECAA maintains NCLB’s requirement that the state assessment produce not just test scores, but “individual student interpretive, descriptive, and diagnostic reports.” Unlike NCLB, ECAA requires assessment on behavioral/skills-based standards rather than truly academic standards. The data produced under this language could resemble a psychological profile of the student. Sec. 1111(b)(2)(B)(x).
    12. States in PARCC and SBAC are currently required to make these profiles available to USED. Nothing would prevent USED from making other states submit those student-level profiles as well. ECAA’s limitations on what data USED may demand are too weak; USED may demand information from any “existing State or local data source.” Sec. 1111(a)(6).
    13. ECAA does nothing to stop the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) from implementing its planned and unconstitutional affective probing of students’ “mindsets,” “grit,” or other psychological traits.
    14. ECAA removes protection against socioemotional profiling in the statewide assessments (eliminating NCLB’s prohibition against including assessment items that “evaluate or assess personal or family beliefs and attitudes”) and fails to protect against other psychological data-gathering in any other federal education program covered by ESEA.

    15. ECAA continues to give the federal government influence over how states grade their schools in state accountability systems. Although it claims states may design their own systems, it negates real discretion by detailing the framework of that system and its most important requirements. Sec. 1111 (b)(3)(B)(iii).

    16. While NCLB required academic standards and achievement levels be applied to “public elementary and secondary schools,” ECAA extends the tentacles of federal control into public preschools by making this a requirement for “all public schools” and “public school students,” not just elementary and secondary. Sec. 1111(b)(1)(B)-(C).

    17. ECAA’s Early Learning Alignment and Improvement Grants (Sec. 5902) offer new federal funds that states “shall use to develop, implement, or improve . . . a statewide system . . . of voluntary early care and learning.” a. Note that this program is not exclusively for early educational programs and includes “early care,” or childcare. b. Any funding under this grant must be made available through “existing Federal, state, and local sources,” including Head Start and the Child Care and Development Block Grant, two very expensive and ineffective programs. c. States must demonstrate how they will pay for the program after the three-year federal grant expires. d. There is no evidence that such early-childhood programs have educational benefit, and significant evidence that they may actually do academic and emotional harm. e. These programs do, however, benefit the central planners by allowing government bureaucrats to gain influence over children from their earliest years.

    18. ECAA requires the statewide preschool standards to align with federal standards established under Head Start and the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 1990, creating national standards and achievement levels for our youngest students. Sec. 1111(b)(1)(D)(iii). These federal standards are heavily socio-emotional and result in the compilation of psychological data on young children.
    19. ECAA includes “school climate” formula grants. This risks giving the federal government enormous power to model citizenship, to influence what is an appropriate world-view, and to pressure schools to suppress student expression of orthodox religious values. Sec. 4103, et seq.
    20. Through these formula grants, ECAA funds “extended learning opportunities,” such as before- and after-school programs, summer programs, etc., to ensure children spend less time with their families and more at school. Sec. 4105(a)(B). The grants also fund “comprehensive school-based mental health services and supports” that will enable “early identification of social, emotional, or behavioral problems . . . .” Sec. 4105(a)(D)(ii)(I). This is more governmental surveillance of students’ attitudes and mindsets.
    21. ECAA also allots money to fulfill Sec. Arne Duncan’s expressed desire of having schools become “21st –century community learning centers” (it even uses that exact terminology). Sec. 4201 et seq. This funding would encourage students to rely on the government school, not family or church, for “a broad array of . . . services, programs, and activities, such as youth development activities, service learning, nutrition and health education . . . counseling programs . . . [and] financial literacy programs . . . .” [Do the drafters not see the irony of having the federal government promote “financial literacy”?] And to help out politically connected corporations, these programs should include “career and technical programs, internship or apprenticeship programs, and other ties to an in-demand industry sector or occupation for high school students . . . .” Sec. 4201(a)(2).

    The Every Child Achieves Act (ECAA) makes a number of important changes to some of No Child Left Behind’s MOST ONEROUS PROVISIONS.
    ONEROUS by definition, (of a task, duty, or responsibility) involving an amount of effort and difficulty that is OPPRESSIVELY BURDENSOME.

    On top of the mandate that schools and districts test their students, NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND (NCLB) requires states to ensure 95 percent of students take the tests.

    YOU DECIDE….

    ———————————————————-
    Common Core was not developed by the states but rather by the “COMMON CORE REGIME” along with Obama’s stimulus $$ and pushed by the duped Republican governors and business groups.

    The push by a DC-based nonprofit called Achieve, Inc., which is the Education division of Rupert Murdoch‘s News Corp., under the auspices of the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) in 2007. Neither NGA nor CCSSO (which are merely trade associations with private membership lists) had a grant of legislative authority from the states to develop national standards.

    In fact, Common Core was written by the same progressive education reformers who have been trying to impose a national curriculum for decades. This time, they were savvy enough to invoke the “cover”of NGA so they could paint Common Core as a “state-led” effort. To the extent states had any input, it was limited to offering suggestions that may or may not have been accepted by the people in control.

    Truth:
    GATES FOUNDATION underwrote( paid for) & promoted the COMMON CORE curriculum scheme along with Jeb Bush’s 2 foundations.

    RUPERT MURDOCH’s News Corp built the database infrastructure
    in BLOOM evolving out of the above partnership this was created to operate the database.

    The U.S. Department of Education (USED) did not create the Standards, but it was deeply involved in the effort to gather together the various trade associations and private foundations to do the work that USED wanted done.

    ONCE COMMON CORE WAS CREATED, USED “PERSUADED” THE STATES TO ADOPT IT BY TYING ADOPTION TO THE OPPORTUNITY TO OBTAIN RACE TO THE TOP (RTTT) FUNDING. NO COMMON CORE, NO RTTT MONEY.
    (Since then, USED has also attempted to lure states into the Common Core by dangling NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND waivers as a reward for adopting the national Standards and national tests. In both RTTT and NCLB waivers, Florida decided to play the game – piece by piece, dollar by dollar.

    USED is funding the national tests that are being created by two testing consortia (called SMARTER Balanced and PARCC – Florida is a member of PARCC). Obviously, what’s on the PARCC test will dictate what is taught in
    Florida classrooms – in other words, it will dictate curriculum. So by funding the tests, USED will eventually control the Florida curriculum – in violation of three federal statutes.

    FULL TEXT
    Testing Revolt In Washington State Brings Feds Into Uncharted Waters
    July 16, 201512:03 PM ET
    Seattle 11th-grader Elijah Falk added it all up and decided: It made no sense to take the tests.
    The Common Core-aligned Smarter Balanced exams, Elijah was told, were grueling — but Washington state didn’t require this year’s juniors to pass them to graduate from high school. In fact, the only thing compelling Elijah to take the tests this past spring was No Child Left Behind, the federal law. And, by federal standards, Elijah’s school was all but certain to be labeled “failing” whether he passed the tests or not.
    “If there’s something you might risk failing but, regardless, you’ll learn something or you’ll be stronger because of it … that’s great,” Elijah said in April as he organized a boycott of the tests at his school. “But if there’s not a real benefit to passing or failing, then it’s not worth it.”
    When testing day finally arrived in high schools across Washington, Elijah was one of more than 42,000 11th-graders — roughly half of the state’s junior class — who did not show up for their exams. At least 22,000 of them formally refused to test. Many of the rest were AWOL.
    Uncharted Territory
    Whether it’s simply a response to a quirk in the state’s graduation requirements or the broader political environment, the dramatic flare-up of anti-testing sentiment has education leaders in the Evergreen State nervous about the possible consequences.
    On top of the mandate that schools and districts test their students, No Child Left Behind (NCLB) requires states to ensure 95 percent of students take the tests. In Washington, so many juniors skipped that the state’s overall K-12 testing rate dipped below that threshold, to around 90 percent.
    This is likely the first time a state has fallen short, making it hard to know how the feds will respond. But state officials fear the U.S. Department of Education will penalize Washington, perhaps even cutting some of the $1 billion in federal education funding the state receives annually.
    And all of this is happening as lawmakers in Congress debate a reauthorization of NCLB. The versions passed by the House and now being finalized in the Senate would remove the law’s top-down accountability formula, granting more flexibility to states, but lawmakers want to keep the old testing mandate.
    No Empty Threats?
    Whatever course Washington chooses, other states will likely be watching. In New York, for instance, anti-testing activists estimate that parents opted at least 193,000 students out of that state’s English exams this spring. Districts from New Jersey to Illinois also saw significant numbers of test refusals. Oregon’s governor signed a new law making it easier for parents to opt their children out of state exams.

    ———————————————————–
    All of this action has prompted the U.S. Department of Education to take a tough public stance on the issue. The Oregonian newspaper reported that a federal official warned state lawmakers against passing that opt-out bill, saying it increased “the likelihood that Oregon will not meet its obligations under the law and incur enforcement action.” And in April, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan told a gathering of education reporters that the feds have “an obligation to step in” when states play fast and loose with the 95 percent participation rule.

    ——————————-
    Critics of standardized testing have said these are empty threats, uttered to discourage parents from civil disobedience. Still others say there are pragmatic benefits to the federal government adopting a softer stance.

    ———————————————————–
    “If these parents are protesting a policy that they feel like they have no control over, set by faraway people on the other coast, coming down like a ton of bricks might not be the best response,” said Mike Petrilli, president of the Fordham Institute, a right-leaning education think tank. “I think saying, ‘Look, you get a freebie on this one, and we expect everyone to take these tests next year,’ is, I think, the best way to go.”
    But officials in Washington state’s education agency say they can’t assume the federal government is bluffing. They see potential federal action not as a “threat,” said deputy state superintendent Gil Mendoza, but “as a matter of fact, and a matter of federal law.”

    ——————————————
    ‘Through The Cracks’
    Mendoza says the state has an obligation to prepare districts for the possible financial consequences of opting out. He also warns that the federal government could rescind some flexibility under NCLB’s current school improvement procedures — flexibility schools may have been counting on as Washington state transitions to the new, tougher Smarter Balanced exams this year.
    TESTS ARE A  “LINCHPIN”  in NCLB’s scheme for holding schools accountable for student performance. The participation rule itself was baked into the original law to ensure school districts didn’t game their test scores by encouraging struggling students to sit out the exams, Petrilli said.

    ———————————————————————-
    U.S. Sen. Patty Murray’s bottom line…
    And, ironically, as the NCLB reauthorization push moves through Congress, one of the strongest voices for keeping that“LINCHPIN” in place has come from Washington state — from U.S. Sen. Patty Murray. WHILE SHE HAS CALLED FOR REDUCING “REDUNDANT AND UNNECESSARY” TESTING, SHE ALSO HAS CALLED FOR CONTINUING TO REQUIRE STATES TO TEST EVERY STUDENT EVERY YEAR.
    “If we don’t have ways to measure students’ progress, and if we don’t hold states accountable, the victims will invariably be the kids from poor neighborhoods, children of color and students with disabilities,” Murray said in a speech on the Senate floor in January.
    “These are the students who, too often, fall through the cracks.”

    My bottom line comment…….
    AS PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS
    We have NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND and we have NO CHILD LEFT INSIDE
    And, we have NO CHILD LEFT OUTSIDE  OF FEDERALLY CONTROLLED EDUCATION.

    Each year, the ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom RECORDS HUNDREDS OF ATTEMPTS BY INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS TO HAVE BOOKS REMOVED FROM LIBRARIES SHELVES
    AND FROM CLASSROOMS.
    See Frequently Challenged Books for more details.
    According to the Office for Intellectual Freedom, at least 46 of the Radcliffe Publishing Course Top 100 Novels of the 20th Century have been the target of ban attempts.
    The titles below represent banned or challenged books on that list ( see the entire Radcliffe Publishing Course list here).

    88. An American Tragedy, by Theodore Dreiser
    Hmmm…. An American Tragedy, Dreiser’s longest novel, has often been hailed as his masterpiece. It is divided into three books, the first of which foreshadows the events of the second, while the third describes Clyde’s trial. The protagonist is Clyde Griffiths, the son of street preachers WHO LIVE IN DIRE POVERTY.
    Thus, Clyde grows up longing for material things he can never attain EXCEPT THROUGH HIS OWN EFFORTS.
