National Hispanic Heritage Month in Your Child’s School Where Less Information is Moral

Can’t even manage to give it an entire month as it is broken up into two 1/2 month sessions…

National Hispanic Heritage Month
September 15 – October 15

By looking at the curriculum for the various grades it appears that ‘Hispanic Heritage’ does not include the study of Spain~

Resources For

Tips to our impressionable youth…

You are being taught by the very same type of union members who disrespected several state capitol buildings across your United States of America, this past year with an agenda that is anti-American and injurious to other Americans. It is all about the money for them!

They are also attempting to distort your view of Hispanic Heritage in the classroom. Mexico is not the center of Hispanic Culture because all roads lead to SPAIN. Hispanic Heritage is not a North American or even an American exclusive. Bolivians are Hispanic, Cubans are Hispanic, Puerto Ricans are Hispanic, Filipinos are Hispanic, etc. The Spanish were conquerors or conquistadors and left an immense seeding worldwide of people over several centuries. It is just like Johnny Appleseed, when he seeded apple trees, across the United States.

Ask your teacher, you have the right to know the truth!

Even Crayola doesn’t have a clue


From any dictionary but in this case it would be The Free Dictionary online ~

His·pan·ic (h-spnk)
adj.
1. Of or relating to Spain or Spanish-speaking Latin America.
2. Of or relating to a Spanish-speaking people or culture.
n.
1. A Spanish-speaking person.
2. A U.S. citizen or resident of Latin-American or Spanish descent.
[Latin Hispnicus, from Hispnia, Spain.]
Usage Note: Though often used interchangeably in American English, Hispanic and Latino are not identical terms, and in certain contexts the choice between them can be significant. Hispanic, from the Latin word for “Spain,” has the broader reference, potentially encompassing all Spanish-speaking peoples in both hemispheres and emphasizing the common denominator of language among communities that sometimes have little else in common. Latinowhich in Spanish means “Latin” but which as an English word is probably a shortening of the Spanish word latinoamericanorefers more exclusively to persons or communities of Latin American origin. Of the two, only Hispanic can be used in referring to Spain and its history and culture; a native of Spain residing in the United States is a Hispanic, not a Latino, and one cannot substitute Latino in the phrase the Hispanic influence on native Mexican cultures without garbling the meaning. In practice, however, this distinction is of little significance when referring to residents of the United States, most of whom are of Latin American origin and can theoretically be called by either word. · A more important distinction concerns the sociopolitical rift that has opened between Latino and Hispanic in American usage. For a certain segment of the Spanish-speaking population, Latino is a term of ethnic pride and Hispanic a label that borders on the offensive. According to this view, Hispanic lacks the authenticity and cultural resonance of Latino, with its Spanish sound and its ability to show the feminine form Latina when used of women. Furthermore, Hispanicthe term used by the U.S. Census Bureau and other government agenciesis said to bear the stamp of an Anglo establishment far removed from the concerns of the Spanish-speaking community. While these views are strongly held by some, they are by no means universal, and the division in usage seems as related to geography as it is to politics, with Latino widely preferred in California and Hispanic the more usual term in Florida and Texas. Even in these regions, however, usage is often mixed, and it is not uncommon to find both terms used by the same writer or speaker. See Usage Note at Chicano.

Does Obama Suffer From Verbigeration By Teleprompter Proxy on Education?

It would appear that Obama suffers from verbigeration and it is not exclusive to Education… however it is a prime example as hubby sends me this note today:

Sent: Mon, Mar 14, 2011 9:47 am
Subject: TALK ABOUT “TIMING”!!!!!!

The Obama Plan: Support competitive grant programs that reward states and schools for changing the system by improving how they get the best teachers in the classroom, extending the school day and year, supporting the creation of smarter tests, using data to improve practice, and raising standards for all kids.
THIS SEEMS TO SHOUT “GRANTS FOR MORE USELESS STUDIES”
This is so associated with your blog yesterday that again, it shows how ON THE SPOT you are!

The pertinent blog entry: Is the NAEP Really Making a Difference or Cushy Job and Engineered Social Scam?

Liberals & Leftists are Predators Upon the Education System Working Toward Agenda 21

Have you heard of IB aka International Baccalaureate Programme? Did you know that IB Schools in U.S. Under U.N. Law? Why? Look into this list of IB Schools in the USA… is your child succumbing to an indoctrination that you were unaware of? Do you know how and what is being taught to your children? Just think of how many of today’s troubled youth are the direct result of this process?

There is also a breakdown of more conflicts within the Education System directed against the United States of America today as provided by Freedom Advocates Video at America’s Choice depicting

“…Michael Chapman – Transformational Education – Preparing Our Children for Global Citizenship. Michael Chapman is an educational researcher and author. His efforts have uncovered direct links between the restructuring of public schools using programs such as Goals 2000 and School-to-Work and the restructuring of communities using Sustainable Development…”

Would this educational system have anything to do with Agenda 21? Why yes, yes it does! Directly from the UN’s site: Promoting Education, Public Awareness & Training or I as I like to call it “The Stupefying of the American Child“!

When was the last time you saw your child’s books? You may be in for a rude awakening!

To listen to someone who is trying to help all parents, meet Lisa McLoughlin on Hr 2 &3 Liberty Underground/The Moretti Report from 1/5/2011:

If you care about your child and your country’s future, now is the time to get involved. See what the United States Educational System has deceived your child into believing, thinking and doing! Parents… it’s 1/2 past RED ALERT time!

Freedom to Ignore September 14th School Children Indoctrination Speech UPDATE 9/12

Updated from my post last year on The 912 Project Fan Site:

Freedom to Ignore Obama’s September 8th 14th School Children Indoctrination Speech

I understand there is to be a another “universal” or “national” roll-out via a “Presidential-Speak” through all K-12 schools on September the 8th 14th:

President Obama to Address Students
Schools to show Obama’s speech

Check this twist out:

EXTRAS

Update 9/12 Now They Are, Not Enough Notice for Working Parents to Make Plans!!!

    When you interfere with me or mine, and impose your will or views that I totally oppose, then I can place you on ignore. I do not respect “that one” who has usurped the office of the Presidency and I do not intend to position my children in harm’s way. I consider the man and his performance. I view him no better than a destroyer of life, liberty, and happiness. I will not put my child in a forced event that will add nothing to the building of their character or enhance their academics.
    He needs an audience on a regular basis to boost his ego, I will not provide my children, as tools.

    I choose to…

    “Just Say No!”

    I bet there’s a Pony ride at the park, instead of the “Dog and Pony” show on parade September the 8th 14th.

A Lose, Lose Situation on Who’s Whose – Sorry FOX!

From the FoxNews.com Speaker’s Lobby page

Has Obama’s “Race to the Top” Lost its Shine?

President Obama’s $4 billion education initiative to spur school reform has become a veritable piñata as the program heads into its second round. Not only has Congress raided the account to pay for teacher layoffs to be averted, prompting a White House veto threat of the war supplemental to which it’s attached, but there’s a quiet rebellion going on by some in the education community to ditch the program.

Find out how much this program costs by using Fox’s Taxpayer Calculator.

So why has the contest lost some of its shine? According to the ranking member on the House Education and Labor Committee, it’s a loss of confidence in the system.

“Competition is generally a good thing,” says Minnesota Republican Representative John Kline. “The question is fair, whose doing the judging? How’s the point system put together? Let’s face it, in anything like this where you have judges,  whether it’s an Olympic diving competition or something like this, you have some subjectivity. In your state you would like to know what the rules are and want as little subjectivity as possible.”

Minnesota recently joined eight other states in opting out the second round of the contest.

Race to the Top’s aim is to prepare students for a better future. States participate by competing for a federal grant, administered in phases, and fulfilling what the program calls the four assurances: instituting rigorous standards and assessments, recruiting and retaining effective teachers, turning around low-performance schools and establishing data systems to track student achievement and teacher performance.

Phase I winners were announced on March 29th, and the deadline for submitting Phase II applications was June 1st. The winners for this phase will be announced later in September.

The $4.35 billion dollar incentive program was designed by the United States Department of Education and is funded by the ED Recovery Act as part of the American Recovery Act of 2009. It was announced by President Obama and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on July 24, 2009.

The National Education Association, the largest labor union in the U.S. representing teachers and other support personnel, gave the program a vote of “no confidence” earlier this month. Many saw it as a symbolic slam on the Obama administration. The item would eventually pass, but only by a razor-thin margin.

One member at the NEA convention where the resolution was approved actually offered a resolution to call for the ouster of Secretary Duncan, in part because of the program. That resolution was never approved.

Randi Weingarten, president of the American Teachers Union, called the program a mixed bag. “The real issue is that ‘Race to the Top’ in principle would be a good program if we didn’t have the kind of budget shortfalls that we have right now. It’s hard to be innovative and to do new and different things that require time and resources when we’re seeing state after state having devastating budget cuts.”

But that hasn’t stopped several states, 35 of them in fact, plus the district of Columbia, from lining up for a slice of the grant money.

Representative Jared Polis, D-Co., told Fox News, “For every dollar they spend they’re getting reforms all across the country. Reforms that encourage good teachers to stay in teaching. Reforms that intervene in changing schools, removing caps for the number of charter schools. These are all things that are happening nationally because of ‘Race to the Top.'”

Bottom line – has this contest overstayed its welcome, particularly in the face of rising deficits? Or should Congress reinstate funding and add even more money than President Obama is seeking?

Fox News’ Trish Turner contributed to this report.


The glaring offense from above:

“Competition is generally a good thing,” says Minnesota Republican Representative John Kline. “The question is fair, whose doing the judging?”

Why don’t they just ask the Japanese how to educate properly? Their system works. And, if you can’t tell the difference between whose and who’s in a news article about education what sense does any of this make?

SEIU Education and Support Fund Inc Received Money via the Stimulus? Why?

The “Inc” leads one to believe there is another issue entirely but:

So did the American Taxpayers pay for this asinine stunt? Where are the Stimulus Funds as the record still shows:

Jobs Summary: None as of yet. (Total jobs reported: 0)

Project Status: Not Started

This award’s data was last updated on Sep. 6, 2009?

It doesn’t look as though any education is ongoing or has truly occurred! Unless Thug101 was up for grading in the “training”!

This project was for Worker Health and Safety Training Cooperative Agreement? It is described as:

Award Description: To integrate the Project’s hazardous materials emergency training from its Parent Grant into existing workforce development training programs for healthcare. This will be accomplished through collaboration with the Healthcare Career Advancement Program (H-CAP), a decade-long partnership of SEIU Local Unions and healthcare employers. The Supplemental Project will use existing classes and class materials from the Parent Grant. The Project will access the target population through the unique conduit provided to SEIU ESF by the national network of local unions of the Service Employees International Union. It will build on its existing and strong relationship with one consortium partner from the Parent Grant, the SEIU1199 Training Fund in New York while expanding into new geographic areas for training healthcare workers through the H-CAP. The second aim of this proposal is to accelerate the purchase of replacement equipment and supplies needed to prepare for an anticipated demand for the Project?s hazardous materials emergency training for state departments of transportation and facilities for highway maintenance crews that clean and maintain roads, highways, shoulders, bridges and roadsides and maintain vehicles and for waste water treatment and distribution workers. The four states (Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire and New York) in which the Parent Program provides training have been allocated more than one billion dollars for transportation and water-related construction projects funded under the ARRA and are expected to create at least 10,000 new construction jobs.  Over the 13 month period of this Supplemental, the Project proposes to hire one full-time and one half-time staff, to train 932 healthcare workers and 160 state highway and water workers and add an additional 12 worker-trainers to our existing network under the Parent Grant. The Project will operate as a consortium, led by the SEIU ESF.

Or is the money still circling around and through the administration slush fund and back again like:
OSHA cites Hilltop Health Center, seeks $24G fine
or is SEIU yet to earn it:
SEIU Unions Endorse Dannel Malloy For Governor In Large Boost For Campaign; Battle Of Unions Continues?

I’m sure it is just sloppy bookkeepingcough, cough

Remember to check your own city, county, state and see what’s not going on at StimulusWatch site for irregularities.
