“Educrats Make Lousy ‘Parents'”
A Follow Up Article to “Coming For Your Babies”

Patriots, I thank you for the tremendous reception my previous article (above) has received. This article will serve as both an update and some background information. As you will discover, a third article will be needed.
The NC Dept. of Public Instruction (NC DPI) originally sent an email (March 9th) alerting each recipient that on March 15th, the Birth to Third Grade (B3) Interagency Council would hold a meeting to begin its work.
If you tried, as I did, to access that meeting using the NC DPI links for the meeting, you found access was denied. When I contacted the Communications Dept. of the DPI, it was a usual run around. First, I had to be transferred to the correct person. Once he and I chatted, I asked if the public would be able to access an archive recording of the meeting. His response? “Good question, ma’am. One I have no answer for.” After providing my contact information, I was given assurance a return phone call from DPI would be coming. That was a few days ago. Crickets.
Why am I going to such effort to access the March 15th meeting? Because in looking into the B3 Interagency, there are at least a total of 20 States across the nation carrying on the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) push for birth to 3rd grade ‘education’.
If these other States are anything like NC, the educrats (those who create legislation for education, not with the citizens in mind, but the corporate lobbyists) are not only aligning early learning to workforce skills based training, but setting up a nanny-state grasp at families.
In other words, Patriots, government makes for lousy ‘parents’.
So, Patriots, while we wait to see if I do, in fact, receive the 15th’s B3 Meeting archive, what follows is information I believe you can use.
Those 20 States:
The map you see above, how did I find it? The NC Early Education Foundation (aka “Build the Foundation”). (*Note, use the first footnote listed to access the 2015 map above.) “Build the Foundation” is a part of the NC B3 Interagency Council.

Other Groups Behind NC’s B3:
Patriots, you’ll find that there will be several groups behind the birth to 3rd (or whatever age/grade your State uses).
Not only is the NC Early Ed in on this Council, but others involved with them have influence as well. Like the First Five Years Foundation, BEST NC (businesses overreaching into education, big time), and, Zero to Three.
You can also look in NC’s past to see the “Ounce of Prevention” Fund being used. In 2016, I showed you how this Fund (Gates Foundation helps back this, among others) can be tied to the First Five Years. Look in your State for these groups.
Back in 2017, I first revealed how NC’s ESSA State Plan included the B3 Interagency Council. I also showed you how the other States were being aligned in similar ways. NC’s not slowed down this indoctrination and educratic overreach one bit since then! No State has slowed down in this area. They can’t. The federal funds are too binding.
In 2016, this article of mine exposed the early childhood education data mining and tracking for workforce based education. Other groups you need to know are exposed in this research.
Zero To Three in NC:
Patriots, early in March 2018, The NC Early Childhood Education Foundation announced a new program for the State thanks to the national group, Zero to Three. The new campaign? “Think Babies!”
If you’d like to learn about the NC Childcare Services Association helping expand this campaign (the press release said NC was among 6 States (CO, GA, NJ, WA, and, RI are the other 5), visit here.
(*Note: The NC Childcare Services is a part of the United Way (UW). UW is a part of the CCSS Machine (Common Core State Standards Machine)
Block Grants Are Tying Our Babies Into the Educratic Parenting Arms Of The Government:
Patriots, ESSA did a ‘bang up’ job mandating that Promise Neighborhoods and Community Development Block Grants (CDBGs) were among the aligning factors needed to encompass a federal nanny-like grasp on entire families.
Much of the funding from these CDBGs includes early childhood education/development. If you didn’t know this Promise Neighborhoods was an Obama era initiative. When ESSA was passed into law, the Promise Neighborhoods became codified as federally overseen.
Promise Neighborhoods not only stack the deck as to how your towns and communities are laid out, but play into the fallacy of ‘school choice’.
Helping drive this into the ground? The NWLC (National Women’s Law Center). NWLC is a front for the Gates Foundation (among others), in my researched findings. It was NWLC which pushed for ESSA’s passage. NWLC is using the current crisis of school safety to align and undermine families. NWLC is also helping steer the CDBGs.
NWLC is also using quality child care as a reason to include ‘school readiness’ for ‘lifetime success and sustainability’. How? A campaign called “Child Care Now”. Look at the embedded link and then note the plentiful CCSS Machine member groups also steering the course for babies to 3rd grade and their families.
Why is NWLC doing this? The evidence points to one conclusion: undermine education in the name of equality.
Patriots, when you think about it, this all has to happen to complete the ‘cradle to grave workforce education system’ which Common Core and ESSA have sped up. Our nation has been on the road to the ‘cradle to grave’ for many years.
The Progressives have been at this type of reforming America for longer than some of us have been alive. ESSA is not the only fed ed law out there. The HEA (Higher Education Act), any law embedding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and, Math) or CTE (Career Tech Education). Why do I include STEM/CTE? STEM is not American, but it is embedded in WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) which was made a federal law in its current form, in 2014. Likewise the basis for CTE is global in nature, just like STEM.
WIOA is where the workforce education shift was laid out in spades. Then, in 2015, when ESSA became law, it picked up the WIOA workforce shift and has it firmly planted in K-12th grades.
Before kindergarten? That, too was mandated in ESSA. How? With “Universal Preschool”.
Does your State have a “First 2,000 Days” group? NC does. Why “2,000”? According to their website that is the number of days between a child’s birth and their entrance into kindergarten. (*Note: a big focus is on a child’s soft skills. Soft skills are what shape our values, beliefs, etc. These are areas for real parents to address for their children, NOT the federal or State governments!)
Why is this dangerous? ‘Soft skills’ are lumped into the CCSS Machine’s SEL (Social Emotional Learning). Since our emotions cannot be measured on most school tests, education has to manipulate emotions into forms which are measured and tracked. How? SMART and HARD Goals!
Look in your State for the “Early Childhood Education Council”. All 50 States have one.

Patriots, be sure to note that as soon as I can access the NC B3 Interagency archives, I will share them. In the meantime, use this article to help spur you and any fellow Patriot on into action. We must protect our families from the educrats posing as lousy ‘parents’!
