IF THE DOCUMENTATION PROVIDED IN THIS RED ALERT #8 WERE PRESENTED
TO AN UNBIASED JURY, THE DECISION WOULD BE "GUILTY OF TREASON ON ALL COUNTS!"
Marcus Tullius Cicero, (106-43 B.C.) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator:
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
DOCUMENTED HISTORY RELATED TO THE REAUTHORIZATION OF ESEA,S-1177 (EVERY CHILD ACHIEVES ACT)
“Breaking the mold” means breaking this system, root and branch. (p. 6)
Reaching this goal will require a transformation in virtually every important aspect of the American system of education, features that have remained essentially unchanged for nearly 70 years, from graduation standards to incentives that motivate students, from curriculum to budgeting, from assessment systems teaching careers.

Carnegie (TUCKER's) or WHOSE Plan? Is knowledge of and/or approval of Marc Tucker’s long-standing plan the reason the neoconservative leadership has been so late in opposing HR 5 and S.1177? Was its reluctance to take a stand until the very last minute due to their wanting to see HR 5 and S1177 pass in order for the Tucker Plan to be implemented? Was their reluctance to join in the grassroots effort to defeat these bills due to their support for tax-funded school choice/charters with unelected boards, which is called for in HR 5 and S 1177?

"Republican Congressmen Goodling (PA) and McKeon (CA) in a September 1995 response to Congressman Henry Hyde's concerns over HR 1617 said:
'In fact, CAREERS is the product of efforts by Republicans going back to the Reagan and Bush Administrations, and incorporates suggestions by a bipartisan coalition of reform-minded colleagues, including many leading Republican Governors. Chester Finn, Dennis Doyle, Bill Bennett, Secretary of Education Terrel Bell? It was Bell who in 1984 awarded Bill Spady the grant to continue work on implementing Outcome-Based Education "in all of the schools in America [of the nation]".
HERE IS THE HISTORY OF HR 5 and S 1177 (AMERICA’S TITANIC)
Carnegie Corporation's Marc Tucker, close friend of Hillary Clinton (remember the “Dear Hillary letter”?...see below) spells out clearly how Americans must give up true local control at the local level by getting rid of locally-elected school boards, getting rid of the property tax for the funding of education at the local level, and giving 100% control of education to State Departments of Education, Governors, and their appointed councils, etc. TUCKER EVEN CALLS FOR DOWN SIZING OR GETTING RID OF THE U.S. DEPT. OF EDUCATION and setting up a "national commission" of appointed persons.https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/education/report/2013/05/14... by Marc Tucker
In the above 5/14/13 article “Governing American Education”, Tucker explains for the reader the new meaning of "local control" constantly referred to in HR 5 and 1177, The Reauthorization of ESEA, and by Congressmen and Senators during the recent debates covered by C-SPAN.
The late Samuel Blumenfeld (education researcher/prolific writer/American patriot) had this to say twenty years ago regarding the nefarious plans that have resulted in HR 5 and S 1177. Read following excerpts from “Will Republicans Betray America By Voting for Marc Tucker’s Human Resources Development System: H.R. 1617 and S. 143", The Blumenfeld Education letter, May, 1996: www.deliberatedumbingdown.com for FREE download of the deliberate dumbing down of America pages APPENDIX XV, pages 72-80.
"There is no doubt that H.R. 1617 (known as the “Consolidated and Reformed Education, Employment, and Rehabilitation System’s Act” or “CAREERS Act”), which passed the House in September 1995 by a vote of 345 to 79, and S. 143 (the Workforce Development Act of 1995) which passed the Senate in October by 95 to 2, will do more to lead America into socialist-fascist totalitarianism than any other pieces of legislation before the present Republican-dominated Congress..."
3D, page A-72: ”Both bills, when reconciled in conference committee, will enact into law Marc Tucker’s infamous Human Resources Development System, outlined in Tucker’s exuberant letter of November 11, 1992 to Hillary Clinton, a member of the board of trustees of Tucker’s National Center on Education and the Economy."...
"Dear Hillary: I still cannot believe you won. But utter delight that you did pervades all the circles in which I move. I met last Wednesday in David Rockefeller’s office with him, John Sculley, Dave Barram and David Haselkorn. It was a great celebration. Both John and David R. were more expansive than I have ever seen them---literally radiating happiness...The subject we were discussing was what you and Bill should do now abouteducation, training, and labor market policy. Following that meeting, I chaired another in Washington on the same topic...Our purpose in these meetings was to propose concrete actions that the Clinton administration could take—between now and the inauguration, in the first 100 days and beyond.”

Within the above document one finds all the ingredients included in HR-5 and S1177!
3D, page A-53: “Breaking the mold” means breaking this system, root and branch.(p 6)
Reaching this goal will require a transformation in virtually every important aspect of the American system of education, features that have remained essentially unchanged for nearly 70 years, from graduation standards to incentives that motivate students, from curriculum to budgeting, from assessment systems to teaching careers. (page4 ) Promoting and --especially--sustaining these changes in the schools will require complementary and equally radical changes in the organization of school districts and the structure and the administration of education policy at the state level. [Note from Charlotte: This means school choice/charter schools with the unelected boards!] It will also require thoughtful and sustained communication with the citizens of these states to build the public consensus needed to support thoserevolutionary changes. Designing and implementing this kind of fundamental transformation not just in a few schools, but in schools, districts and states in many parts of the country at once is an unprecedented undertaking. Pulling it off will require the coordinated action of hundreds of the most talented, committed educators and specialists from many walks of American life beyond education. The National Alliance for Restructuring has assembled such a team and has devised a plan that will enable us to wok together to get the job done. The states and districts that are our Partners are utterly committed to this transformation. (p.4)
Under “America’s Schools and Systems: Cast in a 1920’s Mold,” the report says:
“Breaking the mold” means breaking this system, root and branch. (p. 6) The first design task, then, is to define what outcomes are wanted and create quality measures of progress toward those outcomes.
WITH THE CARNEGIE-FUNDED AND CONTROLLED EDUCATION COMMISSION OF THE STATES AND NATIONAL GOVERNORS ASSOCIATION. STATE DEPARTMENTS OF EDUCATION HAVE BEEN RECEIVING U.S. DEPT. OF EDUCATION FUNDING UP TO 81% OF THEIR ADMINISTRATIVE BUDGETS SINCE AT LEAST THE EARLY EIGHTIES.3D, PAGE 35O: The Washington Times, April 7, 1995: "Why the Education Department Must Go", Gordon S. Jones, former Undersecretary of Education, in Secretary T. H. Bell's Dept. of Education: "To put the matter in its starkest terms, state school superintendents like the Department of Education because they are getting, on average nationwide, almost half of their funding and staff courtesy of the federal taxpayer. The state of Michigan, for example, receives 77 percent of its operating budget from the Department of Education; its counterpart in Iowa has 81 percent of its staff paid for by Uncle Sugar."
In addition, local schools have received thousands of so-called "state capacity building" grants from the U.S. Dept. of Education to control the local level's teacher training, curriculum development, development of and implementation of the National Assessment of Educational Progress, etc. etc.
PROMISES OF REMOVING U.S. DEPT. OF EDUCATION (FEDERAL FOOTPRINT AND CONTROL) THROUGH S 1177 IS JUST IDLE TALK IN ORDER TO GET THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO ACCEPT THE NEOCONSERVATIVE/CARNEGIE/TUCKER LEFTIST INTERNATIONAL AGENDA (S1177 and HR 5). WHY, AFTER 35 YEARS, IS THERE THIS CALL TO ABOLISH THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION? Why was the U.S. Dept. of Education NOT abolished long ago, when doing so would have encouraged a return to academics and true local control?
ANSWER TO ABOVE QUESTION: SUPPORTERS OF S1177 KNOW THEY DON’T NEED THE U.S. DEPT.OF EDUCATION ANY MORE. IT HAS DONE ITS JOB!!!
USE OF HEGELIAN DIALECTIC: CREATE PROBLEM: “BIG BAD NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND” WITH ITS UNWORKABLE TESTING/ACCOUNTABILITY REQUIREMENTS; PEOPLE SCREAM; IMPOSE THE SOLUTION NO ONE IN HIS RIGHT MIND WOULD HAVE EVER CONSIDERED, MUCH LESS APPROVED, HAD THE PROBLEM NOT HAVE BEEN DELIBERATELY CREATED!
WHAT THIS BILL CALLS FOR IS TOTALITARIAN INTERNATIONAL/STATE “CONTROL”. WHO CARES IF CONTROL IS MOVED FROM U.S. DEPT. OF EDUCATION, WASHINGTON, D.C. TO THE STATE LEVEL? "CONTROL" IS "CONTROL": MORE DANGEROUS THE CLOSER IT GETS, ESPECIALLY SINCE DOING AWAY WITH LOCALLY-ELECTED BOARDS AND CITIZEN RIGHT TO VOTE FOR ELECTED OFFICIALS ANDBUDGETS (TUCKER PLAN) IS TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!
THE ABOVE HISTORY EXPLAINS WHAT HR 5 AND S 1177 ARE ALL ABOUT!
Pray for America. And call, call, call your Senators and demand that S1177 be killed.
