“The Good Plan To Destroy America – Nationalize Schooling”

THE PERFECT PLAN TO DESTROY AMERICA — NATIONALIZE EDUCATION

[COMMENTS
FROM DONNA GARNER:  This text was initially revealed on eight.7.13,
and it has turned out to be very prophetic. Now we’re seeing the
disastrous outcomes from America’s college students having been soaked in Obama’s
Widespread Core for at the least 9 years.  

Obama’s
plan was to destroy America as we all know it, and we’re seeing the
“fruits” of his plan throughout us. Our tradition is now surrounded with
Gen X, Gen Y, and Millennials who’re spouting concepts that shock these of
us who respect and honor America’s historic historical past and its main
paperwork such because the U. S. Structure and the Declaration of
Independence.  As Puritan John Winthrop so correctly said on April four, 1630 as he was on his method to set up the Massachusetts Bay Colony, “We will be as a metropolis upon a hill, the eyes of all individuals are upon us.”  

America
was based upon Judeo-Christian rules, and that’s the foundation for
American exceptionalism. Underneath Widespread Core, college students have been taught to
hate America, to consider in White Privilege and Black Bondage. We’re
seeing Gen X, Y, and Millennials degenerate into teams comparable to Antifa,
Neo-Nazis, Black Hebrew Israelites, MS-13, Indigenous Peoples, ActBlue,
Justice Democrats, U. S. Democratic Socialists, George Soros’ Open
Society, Black Lives Matter, Me Too, White Supremacists, and on and on. 
How might our nation have arrived at such a disastrous time limit? 
How can we re-establish ourselves and our superb historical past?

First,
we should all perceive how we received right here to this time limit when
America is at such an important juncture. As soon as all of us perceive how this
occurred, we will set about making an attempt to repair it. If we fail, then America
will proceed down the identical slippery slope with every succeeding
era of indoctrinated and dumbed-down college students.

I
have but to listen to our leaders, even those that genuinely revere America,
say the phrases, “The Widespread Core philosophy of schooling is destroying
America.”  Sure, it’s destroying America. It isn’t too late to maneuver our
faculties away from this philosophy (a.okay.a., Sort #2) and return to a
conventional, fact-based philosophy of schooling (a.okay.a., Sort #1). We
should come to know how we acquired right here to have the ability to flip America’s
younger individuals round.]

“The Good Plan To Destroy America”

By Donna Garner

eight.7.13

If
an individual needed to destroy our American tradition, hold this era
from speaking successfully with older generations, and ensure
at the moment’s youngsters develop up detesting America as an alternative of valuing our
nation’s American exceptionalism, the most effective plan can be to implement
the Widespread Core Requirements (CCS) into each faculty in America. 

OBAMA’S PLAN

That
is strictly what Obama and his administration try to do, and 45
states (plus D. C.) initially dedicated to the CCS (earlier than the
requirements had even been launched publicly).  Nevertheless, due to a
groundswell of destructive responses from the grassroots, numerous
states at the moment are rethinking their dedication to the CCS. 

TEACHERS REQUIRED TO DO…

As
directed by the CCS, academics should be sure that by the point
college students graduate in 2014, 70% % of books studied have to be
nonfiction (i.e., informational textual content); and people nonfiction choices
have to be taught in a “shut studying” course of.  Meaning college students should
not be given any background info or historic significance of a
nonfiction piece earlier than studying it.  For example, the Declaration of
Independence have to be introduced devoid of what was occurring within the
United States on the time this monumental doc was written, leaving
college students with a shallow understanding of the braveness and revolutionary
spirit that moved the signers to voice their opposition to tyranny. 

Simply
as importantly, what number of English academics might probably cowl the
nice basic items of fiction literature in solely 30% of classroom
time?  None.  For example, it takes a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks in
English I to cowl Nice Expectations, which is among the most excellent, relevant, and character-building books for early-high faculty teenagers to learn.

THE DESTRUCTION OF FICTIONAL CLASSICS

As Dr. Sandra Stotsky lately defined concerning the CCS:

The
studying requirements for ELA are divided into 10 informational

[nonfiction]

requirements and 9 literature [fiction] requirements. That
division goes from Okay to 12. It impacts highschool English in addition to
center faculty English.  It signifies that over 50% of the studying
instruction have to be dedicated to informational studying and fewer than 50%
to poetry, drama, and fiction. http://whatiscommoncore.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/dr-stotsky-sets-the-record-straight-on-english-language-arts-7030-usoe/

Dr. Stotsky as quoted on the Heritage Basis web site:

This
misplaced stress on informational texts (regardless of how a lot is literary
nonfiction) displays the restricted experience of Widespread Core’s architects
and sponsoring organizations in curriculum and in academics’ coaching.
This division of studying requirements was clearly not developed or accepted
by English academics and humanities students…

Widespread
Core’s injury to the English curriculum is already taking form.
Anecdotal stories from highschool English academics point out that the
quantity of informational or nonfiction studying they’re being informed to do
of their classroom is 50 % or extra of their studying educational
time—and that they may have time just for excerpts from novels, performs,
or epic poems if they need college students to learn greater than very brief tales
and poems (12.11.12 — http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2012/12/questionable-quality-of-the-common-core-english-language-arts-standards )

ARE THE COMMON CORE STANDARDS GOOD STANDARDS?

Much more primary, do the Widespread Core Requirements train youngsters to learn nicely in any respect?  No, the CCS don’t.

In
Okay-Three, specific and systematic instruction of decoding expertise (phonics)
is missing; and objectives for the unbiased mastery of those expertise are
not set nor anticipated.  Actually, not one of many CCS aims on phonics
and phrase evaluation expertise requires college students to use their decoding expertise by studying independently and precisely unfamiliar phrases out and in of context. 

Nonfiction/informational
textual content is weighted closely in any respect grade ranges Okay-12 whereas fiction is
given brief shrift.  Academics and check makers are given no substantive
requirements as to the best way to choose nonfiction/informational textual content and, thus,
are usually not held accountable to pick literary items of high quality and
significance.  In Okay-12, there are solely two requirements (Grades 11 and 12)
that even point out American literature. 

“Studying
to know” and “use info” are generally used phrases Okay-12 in
CCS; but academics usually are not required to show college students primary ideas such
as matter sentences, paragraph improvement, introduction/conclusion of
expository textual content, and chronological order.  Neither do the CCS include a
clear sequence of informational studying expertise from grade degree to grade
degree.

Slightly
than having college students use applicable dictionaries, the Widespread Core
Requirements anticipate college students to study vocabulary phrases in context (e.g.,
CCS.ELA-Literacy.L.7.5a – “interpret figures of speech…literary,
Biblical, or mythological allusion”).  Nevertheless, if college students haven’t
learn the good literary, Biblical, or mythological items of the world,
how can they probably perceive the vocabulary phrases in context? 

In
the world of composition (i.e., writing), the CCS don’t train
elementary college students to put in writing persuasive papers (referred to as “argument”) that
are constructed upon knowledgeable sources however as an alternative encourage college students merely to share their opinions. 

The
oral and written language conventions (grammar/utilization) in Okay-12 haven’t any
logical, cognitive development from grade degree to grade degree however
as an alternative throw in complicated, stilted terminology at random corresponding to Grade
four:  “Use modal auxiliaries to convey numerous circumstances.”  What fourth
grader (and doubtless his instructor) even is aware of what meaning and far
much less the way to produce it?

Many
of the CCS requirements are usually not measurable and include artificially
inflated wording and expectations corresponding to “Analyze a specific level of
view or cultural expertise mirrored in a piece of literature from
outdoors the USA, drawing on a large studying of world
literature.”  As Dr. Sandra Stotsky said about this commonplace, “How
a lot and what sort of studying of world literature should precede the
studying of a selected work that’s to be analyzed for the writer’s level
of view?”

The
Widespread Core Requirements don’t improve in depth and complexity from one
grade degree to the subsequent.  Most of the requirements are merely paraphrased
or repeated ceaselessly.  Notably within the elementary grades the place a
youngster’s primary information and talent basis is put into place, there
will not be clear objectives set that require college students to show unbiased
studying with out having to be prompted continually by the instructor. 

Lack
of ease with sounding out phrases routinely destroys a scholar’s
studying pleasure and causes him/her to keep away from studying the good basic
items of the world.  The extra the scholar refuses to learn, the “dumber”
she/he turns into. Whereas different class members get “smarter” by studying extra
and higher books, the sluggish readers fall additional behind. That is referred to as
the Matthew Precept on the planet of studying expertise.  

DESTROYING STUDENTS’ BIBLICAL AND LITERARY KNOWLEDGE

Of
course, stripping away the educating of the good classics of the world
is the purpose as a result of many are constructed upon Biblical rules.  If the
Obama administration can restrict youngsters’s studying expertise and destroy
their appreciation and understanding of the Judeo-Christian ethic upon
which America is constructed, then these youngsters as adults might be far more
prone to endorsing Communism, Socialism, Marxism, Islamism,
Atheism, or no matter perception system will greatest destroy America’s
God-ordained  place on the earth. 

Excerpts from E. D. Hirsch, Jr. in The Dictionary of Cultural Literacy (2nd version, Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1993):

No
one within the English-speaking world might be thought-about literate with no
primary information of the Bible… All educated audio system of American
English want to know what is supposed when somebody describes a
contest as being between David and Goliath, or whether or not an individual who has
the ‘knowledge of Solomon’ is sensible or silly, or whether or not saying ‘My cup
runneth over’ means the individual feels lucky or unlucky.  These
who can’t perceive such allusions can’t absolutely take part in
literate English.

The
Bible can also be important for understanding most of the ethical and
religious values of our tradition, no matter our spiritual beliefs. The
linguistic and cultural significance of the Bible is a proven fact that nobody
denies.

No
individual within the trendy world might be thought-about educated with no primary
information of all the good religions of the world — Islam,
Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, and Christianity. 
However our information of Judaism and Christianity must be extra detailed
than that of different nice religions, if solely due to the historic
accident that has embedded the Bible in our thought and language. 

In all probability
the strongest cause to show the Bible as literature is that nearly
all the literature which students think about worthy of research was
written by individuals who knew the Bible.  The Bible’s language, significance
in society, and teachings permeate nearly all of English works that
are extant at this time.  Shakespeare’s schooling revolved round Bible research. 
Attempt to discover considered one of his performs that doesn’t include Biblical allusions. 
Charles Dickens’ novels are replete with redemption allusions (e.g., ‘I
am the Resurrection and the Life’ from A TALE OF TWO CITIES).

How
will college students be capable of perceive the writings of spiritual
persecution in the event that they have no idea what the Bible says and the way it was being
interpreted by the varied teams? 

How
can college students perceive the unfairness confronted by Isaac the Jew in IVANHOE
if they don’t have a information of Previous and New Testomony? 

College students
with out Biblical information will marvel why Gwenevere ought to be
condemned to be burned for committing adultery towards her husband King
Arthur. 

What can be so necessary about discovering the Holy Grail if college students didn’t know the crucifixion story?

How
will college students really feel the torment of Daniel DeFoe and of John Bunyan,
whose spouse’s dowry was her Bible which she used to show John tips on how to
learn? (the top of excerpts taken from E. D. Hirsch, Jr., “The Dictionary of Cultural Literacy”) 

LITERARY ALLUSIONS: STUDENTS MUST UNDERSTAND THEM TO UNDERSTAND THE AMERICAN CULTURE

Following
are numerous literary allusions that saturate our American tradition on a
every day foundation.  Until college students learn and research these nice items of
literature which have related every succeeding era with one
one other, how will right now’s college students be capable of keep related with their
historic previous and be capable of respect our American lifestyle?
