A Back to School Warning to Parents

Looking for solutions? Here is a list of do’s and don’ts and especially some warnings. It comes from years of experience as a mother who tried every possible form of education to fit my individual children’s unique needs. Regardless of the state in which you live, the challenges are nationally driven and similar. Watch for your state’s local home school conferences. There’s one happening in Utah that locals will not want to miss – this weekend – even if you don’t home school. It’s amazing!

It’s that time of year again. It’s back to school. Many parents and children alike are excited about a new year, a new teacher, or perhaps even a new school. Many will be looking over the forms and policies, the class procedures and making decisions for their children during the first few days of school.

WARNING. ALERT. Read on….

I remember that almost Christmas Eve-like anticipation as a child. I also remember it as a parent. New clothes, new friends. The world begins anew in August and September and centers around that school calendar until the next May or June.

After raising five children and after a few years into the public school system, it wasn’t such a rosy picture. After a few encounters and disappointments, I began to investigate. Something was wrong here.

My decades of research have brought me to a place where I can confidently say that public school is dangerous to both your and your child’s health. It needs to carry the same disclaimer as a cigarette pack.

That sounds dramatic, right?

charlotteHere’s the bottom line: The public school is a federal welfare program that has been failing for decades, and according my dear, long-time friend Charlotte Iserbyt, Reagan’s Senior Policy Advisor from the US Department of Education, it has been a deliberate act of negligence. She was the whistle blower. She is the source of much of what follows. We are all indebted to her.

You can follow her blogs here.

This outrageous assertion actually makes sense if you think about it, because if a socialist society is the goal of the education community (which it is), it needs a compliant, passive and dumbed down citizenry. And it must have its fingers in every pie, managing and controlling from the top down, making us believe it’s bottom up – through the community council and tracking from the bottom up.

Welcome to the New American School.

Charlotte found documents in her Department of Education files (of which I also have copies) of policies and programs at the federal level that were enacted to do just that – to dumb down. They first targeted the minorities in Chicago with a reading program that failed the majority of the students. Learning to read and to discipline the brain by memorization of facts and drilling of calculations, time against accuracy, was banned long ago and replaced with a new social agenda – today called “social justice.”

This was not a partisan decision in Congress. Both parties have worked together, astonishingly with Republicans leading the charge. Watch these two short videos, one from 1989 – a Republican Secretary of Education – a Republican, and one from the current Secretary of Education – a Democrat.

Listen briefly to both of them. Shock and awe here…

This is 1989, Lamar Alexander (today’s chairman of the Senate Education Committee!)

This is our current Sec. of Ed. Arne Duncan (a marxist):

Lamar Alexanders Community Ed Bill
Right now the community ed bill S 1787 is set to bring this model to every state, including Utah – under Lamar Alexander’s leadership in the US Senate. (Early Childhood Ed is key to all of it.)

But if you think this is all great stuff, you, my friend, even though you think you are a conservative Republican and you LOVE LOVE LOVE charter schools (government welfare subsidzied private schools without accountability to local taxpayers – loss of representative republican form of government) – are a marxist. A socialist. A communist at heart. (I warned you this content was hard core.)

As the government-funded school became more controlled from the top down (state or federal), more testing, accounting and tracking became necessary. But it was not the testing of academic (cognitive) learning. It was the testing of attitudes and values (affective), very subtly integrated into a multi-disciplinary curriculum in classrooms that functioned around affirmative action and reverse discrimination policies. That began under Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society – with the first national attitudes test, the NAEP.

Fast forward to the education agreements between the US and the USSR in the mid-1980s which clinched it – under Reagan, the US agreed to adopt the Soviet system. This is not a joke. One could legitimately say that the bureaucracy in DC is so huge, that Reagan completely delegated all policies to his cabinet, and perhaps he truly thought that the US-USSR education exchange would turn out that the US would be informing the USSR. Alas, the opposite happened.

Utah’s testing director Don Thomas even invited me to go to the USSR with him to observe how well it was done. I should have taken him up on his offer.

Using operant conditioning, another hallmark of soviet psychology to control the people and developed by B.F. Skinner, is now implemented through computer adaptive testing. Today’s classroom has become the propaganda tool for turning the student against the parochial views of their parents as well as training them to be good little communists all through tests that alter until the right answers are given. Attitudinal and valuse answers. Whose attitudes and values? That is the question.

In the 1990s, I attended teacher training in Utah’s Granite School District, where it all began under soviet-loving Don Thomas. I was taught that in the classroom, there are just too many Indian chiefs and not enough Indians. (And I naively thought I sent my children to school to become tomorrow’s leaders. Not so.) Cooperative, group learning. The group was IN. The individual was OUT. You must have that mentality in a socialist society. This is the school district where it all began.

The classroom under today’s title – “common core” – has become a manipulative cess pool of redistribution of the brain. We must lower the basketball standard so that all can shoot the basket. Standards drive the curriculum and the tests.

What does STEM have to do with it?

In the public school setting, the Judeo-Christian God is OUT and STEM is in.

It’s all about science, technology, engineering and math in a completely godless vacuum. All knowledge is scrutinized through the secular humanist microscope.

(“But my child’s teacher is Christian, or Mormon, etc.” you say. What difference does it make when that teacher is teaching a mandated secular humanist perspective? Good luck with that, after 13 years of prime time in that environment, and especially when the teacher becomes superior to YOUR credibility as parent.) Many of the good teachers are leaving this system, and I don’t blame them.

These are all highlights and hallmarks of a soviet education.

So Let’s Meet the Soviets
In 1970, I had the opportunity to visit with Soviet students at the Expo 70 World’s Fair in Osaka, Japan while touring with the Department of Defense. I asked if they believed in God. The response was chilling: “Yes – WE are god – it’s within, it’s our intellect, it’s science. If it cannot be scientifically proved, it is not so.”

The Soviets were geniuses at “STEM” before it was even called STEM. They tracked the student from the school to the workforce with a strong emphasis on these fields of study. STEM was first introduced as a package in 2011 at the UN. I was there in the negotiating rooms. Within two years, it was in Utah with every good Republican implementing it through legislative policy. The agenda behind STEM was overlaid with a socialist bias – whether gender equality or environmental activism, that was the goal of STEM.

Bless the PTA moms’ hearts, they adore it and don’t even know what they adore. What wonderful marxist cheerleaders they have become. You name it, like lemmings, they are on it and willing to follow off the cliff.

Utah and Soviet Workforce Training
In the early 1990s, School-to-Work programs began to be implemented. In Utah, the Republican legislature and the education committee along with the majority of the Utah Senate and House, has implemented the entire socialist-soviet workforce training program. No wonder – it began in Utah. Sadly, they would not recognize soviet education if they saw it. They all say they are “conservatives.” This is so frustrating as an informed researcher that observes the ineptness of the majority of legislators. But then, most were educated in the very socialist system they now support. How would we expect them to know the difference?

Although anti-communists were demonized during the post-world war years, today’s average American would not recognize communism or even socialism if it were right in front of them (which it is). The proof is that most Americans are now practicing socialists. In fact, most embrace the very policies that were the hallmark of the soviet system that controlled the workforce.

We have elected these uninformed, naive legislators who continue to build out the community education policies of the soviet union. They couple those programs with the other hallmark of soviet education – the contract school, which feature no elected boards and a polytechnic approach. So one school focused on math and science, another the arts, and so on.

My former soviet friends, Olympic athletes, were tracked from early childhood ed at age 3 into those athletic programs. School was 12 hours a day, six days a week. They were superior. No one could compete with them at the Olympics.

But is that what education is for? Workforce training and management?

But it all imploded. Because, as Margaret Thatcher once said, the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of others people’s money. The US is headed for an implosion, and I will do anything I can to prevent it from happening to my children and grandchildren.

It took 60 years of the Soviets silencing the churches and only allowing them to preach within the four walls of their sanctuaries, and completely banning religious speech from the school. They usurped the family’s central authority over the children (“your children do not belong to you – they belong to society” – the same mantra we hear from establishment educators running our schools) and implemented in loco parentis attitudes through education bureaucrats, before they realized they had given up liberty for security.

In the US, we now have soviet workforce training systems in place. Because Reagan loved Mormons (his lieutenant governor was John Harmer in California), he jumped at the opportunity to hire one to be his Secretary of Education – T.H Bell of Utah. What a mistake. Bell was a marxist (knowingly or unknowingly), and he is responsible for Utah becoming the pilot program for “outcome based education” the foundation of all socialist tracking and standards over which we now continue to fight.

The schools track everything today – cradle to grave, just as described in those videos. This is soviet education. The school has become the hub of the family and community, bringing all agencies together to monitor and “help” the parents. Remember Reagan’s quote: “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” School officials may say they are here to help but they are actually mirroring the parent-monitoring and tattling system of the Soviet Union.

Do you really trust government to be on your side given the history of Utah’s DCFS? (Department of Child and Family Services – or similar agency in YOUR state) Are you aware of that aggressive track record of removing children from their parents at a high per capita rate compared to the rest of the nation?

Back To School Dangers – Giving Up Your Parental Rights – What to Avoid
When things don’t go well, parents often wake up and realize the rights they have given up. That happened to me years ago.

But every year when it’s Back to School, parents – especially the new ones – rush to sign their students up for their child’s SEP, SEOP, IEP or whatever student plan the counselor’s office offers.

Don’t sign on to any tracking education or occupational plan.

If they have a child with a learning disability, they rush to get that IEP or the use of federal funds under the Disability Act (IDEA).

Do not register your child in an IEP – the government will forever be tracking your student and all mental illness or disability or medications into that child’s government file. It’s none of government’s @#$% business. This is the mindset of the Chinese dossier.

Yet parents readily give social security numbers to their schools, and that is the tracking number for life. Remember, we are now a socialist nation – bringing health care and collaborative social service agencies to the hub – the public school.

Don’t share your child’s social security number with anyone except for income purposes.

Don’t allow your student to be tested with any state or federal assessment and sign an agreement that no data will be shared outside of the school.

We have discovered that the schools are tracking the personal identification thousands of criteria – attitudes and values included. Each student can be tracked and the government will know which ones need re-education if they don’t fit in. It is none of the government’s @#$% business.

Cradle to Grave Socialist Schools

Stop Early Childhood Ed in your state. And do NOT enroll your child in any early ed program.

They really do mean to track the babies from the hospitals, as Republican Lamar Alexander advocated in 1989 in that video. That’s why hospitals issue social security numbers the day the baby is born. And these government busy-bodies can’t wait to get that child into the socialist mindset as early as possible.

Now that ObamaCare is in place, the school will begin to build the health clinic and dispense health care directly from the school. The grants are in place through several sources, much of which is now in the ACA (ObamaCare). They will dispense comprehensive health care, without consent of parents (or with uninformed consent), including contraceptives and sex ed. And they will have your doctor’s support, because doctors have also been brainwashed in medical schools whose faculty has bought into socialized medicine decades ago.

And don’t get me going about the American Medical Association, complicit in all of this socialist management. They own and control the medial records and the CPT codes which reports are now under the control of the IRS.

It is for this purpose that I offer this back-to-school warning. You must hold on to your parental rights. Do not relinquish them.

In the early 1990s I helped craft and author and pass the nation’s first state level FERPA – Utah’s Family Education and Right to Privacy Act. It’s purpose was to maintain the privacy of the student with all the data exchange. Now today computer systems have made it a snap – a frightening one at that.

Who trusts government with their private information? No former soviet citizen that escaped that system. Only naive Americans would do that.

This tracking is the hallmark of a communist government system. It is here and it is now, and you are most likely embracing communism yourself as you read this and think I’m imagining dragons.

Yet a while back, in a local church congregation after the service was over, a special announcement was made that the county health department, in the name of public safety in case of disaster, wanted everyone to provide to them not just the names, addresses and phone numbers of the members of that congregation, but the entire health history, what meds were being taken and who the physician was, etc. A large plastic pill bottle was provided to put a copy of that form in the refrigerator, and the other copy went to the county health department.

Are you KIDDING me? Yet you would have been astonished at how many unknowing naive citizens rushed to the table at the back to get that form and fill it out. (I kept mine as evidence of the deception of the communist culture being built around us as we sit on our couches watching the Super Bowl.)

TAKE ACTION

So here is my additional advice:

Back to School parents, do NOT allow your student’s school – if it gets ONE penny of federal or state funding – to administer to your student any state or federal assessment test you have not previewed or that is tied to common core or to the federal funding each state is receiving.

Watch out for Sage or the AIR tests. RED FLAGS both.

Opt Out. Opt Out. Opt Out. Here is the form.

Study and get together with your neighbors and inform them.

Don’t sign up for the PTA. Do organize a PTO. Get your neighbors and do it. Nothing works like competition. Oh. But that’s such a capitalist idea. (Trust me, the PTA will be very threatened.)

Listen to our radio programming on AM 630 www.K-talk.com Monday-Friday, 10-Noon mountain time. We will keep you updated.

Your student will bring home stacks of papers asking for your signature. Read them carefully. DO NOT CONSENT to anything that you are not sure of and know that your student and your family will be tracked unless you specifically request to opt out.

Sex ed is woven throughout the curriculum. Soon in Utah, because of the recent changes to the definition of marriage, the curriculum will begin reflecting the additional endorsement of a lifestyle that most parents do not want their children to be taught.

Opt Out of any family life, maturation or sex ed program. Opt out of any suicide or drug prevention program. Stay away. These are discussions for families in the privacy of their homes.

UFERPA Nosy Questions Brochure

Present this brochure to your student’s school along with the opt out form. (Sadly, too many of you reading this will say, “But I need to be on the good side of the school in order for my child to be the teacher’s favorite.” To this I ask, who’s the parent here and how much do you love your child and your child’s future of freedom? Stand for something! If YOU don’t, who WILL and, how will YOUR CHILD?)

Read your children’s text books and homework papers. A Leftist ideology is woven throughout. It’s often imperceptible. And if you don’t know the difference, start reading and learning.

That should not be surprising. If I were the devil, as Paul Harvey wrote way back in 1965:

“…I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions — just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

“Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography — soon I could evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science.”

Paul Harvey was prophetic.

Get your child OUT of government-funded schools while you can. Home school them. That’s a tough one to swallow. But it’s the best advice I can give at this point in my life. Find good online programs. If you don’t know how to assess what’s good and what’s not, connect with the parents that do.

In Utah the LDS Home School Conference is this weekend at South Towne Expo, August 21-22. If you are LDS (and even if you aren’t) and even if you don’t home school, get to this event!!! You will find unbelievable resources and network with other parents who are seeking solutions.

Charlotte Iserbyt used to tell me this way back in 1989 when my children were all in public school, and I admit I thought it was a bit on the fringe. I suspect, you may think the same of me as well. But now I have experienced what Charlotte tried to warn me about, and now I am warning you.

It is your choice to believe what you will of my strident message and unsolicited advice. (Where is my tin foil hat, right?)

However, if you value your own liberty, I challenge you to do the research and then to show where I’m mistaken. I have been tracking these details for decades now. I have thoroughly vetted the who’s who of education curriculum and testing development. I have not found one educator involved in public education who is NOT Leftist, socialist, marxist, or communist. They are all the same – it’s about control. Education has drifted from developing the tools that will allow the student to learn for themselves to class struggle and equality and treating everyone fairly. Those educators have stated so themselves. That IS the goal.

Even the ACT and SAT has been taken over by these marxist social engineers. I have a comprehensive presentation on these facts that are indisputable.

This great equality lie is driven from the top – UNESCO, the United Nations where these marxist NGOs gather to build policy. Then they come back around to Washington DC to buy the votes to get the legislation they need.

Watch your legislature. The majority are incompetent but well-meaning individuals who will pass more and more socialist laws over education and the workforce as each year goes by. Then they will run for office as a “conservative” because they could not identify socialism or communism if they saw it. They are not fit for the office they hold.

My final word of advice: Spread the word and vote them OUT.

Blessings to all the good parents out there who want the best education for their children. Be prayerful. Your children are YOUR stewardship, no one else’s.

End of rant.

Why Every State Governor Should Defund Planned Parenthood

The Susan B. Anthony List and its research arm, the Charlotte Lozier Institute have provided three documents shedding light on why defunding Planned Parenthood should be a no-brainer for state governors. We urge them all to consider this data and to follow the handful of states, including Utah, that are taking action to do so. We wish to thank David Prentice, MD for providing this information to us. These links were sent to every member of the Utah State Legislature today with a message urging them to take legislative action. I encourage you to share them with your state legislators as well.

The Houston Five Stand for Religious Liberty

American Leadership Fund

If this nation succeeds in defending religious liberty, it will be because five pastors stood strong and others joined with them during a defining moment in history that was celebrated on a Sunday evening, November 2, 2014 in Houston, Texas.

If you missed the live broadcast, we have captured it here at the end of this blog post, the short version that focused on the statements of the pastors and the entire four and a half hour event.

If you don’t have the time to watch the entire event, please watch ten minutes of the pastors’ response to a lesbian mayor who subpoenaed their sermons and communications with their church members. It was a “star-studded” line up including the Robertsons of Duck Dynasty, Senator Ted Cruz, the Benham Brothers, and Mike Huckabee.

This is history in the making.  It was riveting.  It brought me to tears to see their courage, their passion and to know that there are church leaders out there who are willing to die for their religious liberty.

Please gather your little children to watch this amazing event.  Our ancestors and patriots died for religious liberty. Continue reading The Houston Five Stand for Religious Liberty

Why Child Sex Abuse Prevention Is An Abusive Idea

Tuesday March 11, 2014
Utah Senators: Please vote NO HB 286 Child Sexual Abuse Prevention

I funded the legal research and drafting of Utah’s FERPA law of 1994 (UFERPA) and successfully lobbied for it.  It was a concept that I brought forward based on my prior experience in Texas where we fought the disgusting idea of teaching teenagers in a co-ed classroom the “14 steps of condom use,” using cucumbers.  It was time to put the parents back in the driver’s seat and to protect their rights and their children’s and family’s privacy.

UFERPA was the first of its kind on the state level.

The out-of-control sexual, psychological and emotional abuse of children that has become the standard of public education has been promoted since the sexual revolution launched in the mid-1960s.  The sex research was largely funded by Guttmacher Institute and the Kaiser Family. It was founded on the beyond-bizarre and utterly atrocious abuse of little children, as young as two months old, who were repeatedly raped by adults in the now infamous Alfred Kinsey research.  This barbarian mad “scientist”  tracked how long it took these sweet little children to reach an orgasm with an adult.

The perverted Kinsey also used pedophiles, prostitutes and rapist prison inmates as the research subjects to determine what was “normal” sexual behavior.  The rest of the country was indoctrinated through Mary Calderone, SIECUS, and NOAAP with their sex education programs – each sharing the common goal of normalizing human sexuality in all its forms, even slave trafficking of women in prostitution rings and consensual pedophilia/incest.  Its terms and activity were to become common household words.

How would any parent accept such evil?  Those of us who have worked with Judith Reisman and who have known her research have watched in horror through the years as “prevention” programs have marched through the school systems and have slowly but surely accomplished nearly all of these goals.  Today prostitution is legalized in Nevada.

The formality of the student – teacher relationship has broken down.  When I attended Marlborough School for Girls in Los Angeles, we stood every time the teacher entered the classroom. Nearly 40 years after this revolution and three generations into sex ed and “sex prevention,” it’s no wonder that teachers are increasingly molesting their students.  It’s also no surprise that the RIGHT to do so (consensually) is being discussed.  “Why not?” some say.

This ought to be appalling.  To me it is simply the fulfillment of those earlier goals – accepted through the enormous deception put upon parents who truly believe they are enrolling their student in a program that will “help” them.

It is still illegal (and may I suggest immoral) to have sex – even consensual – with a minor.

It is also a huge conflict of interest to put a student (the vulnerable party) in an intimate relationship with a teacher (the authoritative party) that has control over the student’s grade.  In a professional setting, which a school ought to be, a wise business owner would avoid an intimate relationship with an employee.  Lawsuits have certainly followed many spurned employees.  Doctors have ethical codes that would prohibit such relationships with their patients.  These are professional client relationships. 

Why UFERPA?

My motivation for protecting parents and children from a school system that continues to invade privacy and that insists on going into territory that is not its constitutional jurisdiction was both personal and research-based.  On a personal level, a family member was sexually abused as a young boy.  He had been raised in a home that took responsibility for appropriate discussions of human intimacy.  That discussion did not prevent the abuse.

But the parents were wise and instead encouraged the child to move forward, to forget and not to ruminate over the past.  To place such a child in a program to be reminded over and over of such a wrenching experience is abuse in itself.

In another instance, an education counselor was brought in to “test” this child because he was performing poorly at school.  To the parents’ astonishment, the counselor was not allowed to discuss anything the child and the counselor had shared, but the school was allowed to know.  The parents wisely stopped not only that “counseling” – they also withdrew the child from the school altogether and put him in a safer environment.

Around the country, including Utah, schools are now collaborating with DCFS and CPS to share information. Then they often use it against parents aggressively removing children from homes, and putting those children in a greater state of emotional abuse by tearing them away from their homes and families.

In my mediation training, I learned that if I even had a remote suspicion of child abuse, I was required to report it to authorities.  I objected and, in a roomful of Utah judges, attorneys and mediators, I declared that this was a violation of privacy.  Since when did our justice system begin requiring no evidence for such heinous charges?

On the break I talked to the director of DCFS, who had been involved in the Parker Jensen case in 2003 – the case of a boy whose parents refused to allow the cancer treatment Primary Childrens’ Hospital insisted he needed.   They all escaped Utah and the Attorney General cited the parents on kidnapping charges! Today Parker Jensen is alive and well, having served a Mormon mission and last year was married.

Protecting the School from the Family and the Family from the School

Utah’s FERPA was intended to be a protection from a school system that tends to alienate the student from the parent and which also removes the responsibility from the parents for teaching these sensitive and personal matters.

However, most parents will not opt-out of these programs because they are not aware of the dangers found in the research.  Typically they assume that because the school is offering it, then it must be good. On one occasion a couple fiercely defended the school’s sex ed programs saying they wanted the school to teach it and then if their children had any questions they could ask them.  But after I showed them the research and showed them what was actually being taught and what even LDS church leaders had said (they were Mormon), they changed their views.

While I was living in Dallas, Texas, I collaborated with two BYU professors, Stan Weed and Terrence Olson, to promote their research nationally showing that increased exposure to sexual content also increased the sexual behavior.  It just makes sense.

Their research shows that the abuse is actually found in the exposing of children to sexual content and that the way human intimacy is discussed is best done in a loving, home environment with their parents.

This is not the way the public school has been presenting this sensitive material.  In fact, it parallels goals that I’ve witnessed in negotiating rooms at the United Nations.  If you have never been there, it is a MUST for every legislator.  We are on a dangerous and slippery slope toward what now exists in many nations of the world.

What the UK Shows Us About Sex ed and So-called “Prevention”

In the UK, comprehensive sex ed includes “sexual abuse prevention.” Pre-schoolers and kindergartners are taught the pleasures of self-stimulation in these comprehensive programs. The school’s attitude is to normalize sexuality.  In London elementary schools now have unisex bathrooms, with urinals on one side and toilets (without stalls) on the other, where boys and girls are together.  It’s the same with locker rooms.

Parents who object to this outrageous abuse against little children and who want to teach their children modesty and a different set of values about sex are told THEY are the “inappropriate” ones – not the sex ed “prevention” program itself.

Utah’s Proposed Sex Abuse Prevention Bill and Utah’s FERPA

Fundamentally, this proposed bill in the 2014 session violates Utah’s FERPA law, and I do know and understand the intent of that bill.  I lived its development daily before and during that legislative session.

If HB 286 is inevitably going to pass the Utah Senate, it must be amended and tied to Utah’s FERPA so that parents can stay in the drivers’ seat and so that their children will be protected from these damaging programs.

It’s time to stop sexualizing children in the same of sex ed and sex abuse protection.

Here’s the list of those in the Senate that voted YES on this horrible bill.  Please contact them asap.

Adams, J. S.Bramble, C.Dabakis, J.Davis, G.Hillyard, L.Hinkins, D.Jones, P.Knudson, P.Mayne, K.Niederhauser, W.Okerlund, R.Osmond, A.Reid, S.Robles, L.Shiozawa, B.Stevenson, J.Thatcher, D.Urquhart, S.Vickers, E.Weiler, T.
