    i have, in recent blogs, attempted to show the impact of what we 'believe' vs. what is real. in furtherance of this effort...

    Subject: Certificate of Completion or Attendance

    The "Certificate of Completion or Attendance" that is being offered in lieu of high school diplomas, is a part of Bush's "No Child Left Behind". This is how it works:

    It is for students who are unable to pass both the Language Arts and Math portions of the 10th grade ISTEP. Students must take the same 10th grade test over in the 11th and 12th grades until they pass both portions. If they are unable to pass the 10th grade test by the 12th grade then they have two options:

    1. Drop out and go to a GED program or,

    2. accept a "Certificate of Completion" - it is NOT a diploma. Once a student accepts it, they cannot ever get a diploma or a GED. A certificate of completion means that a student can never (as long as they live):

    1. go to the armed services
    2. go to college
    3. go to trade school
    4. go to journeyman's school
    5. go to beauty school
    6. go to culinary arts school
    7. get a federal loan in their lifetime

    This is the portion of NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND (2001) that Bush slipped in during the 2004 revision of the NCLB bill. It has not been publicized. At a high school in Indiana, in 2005, there were 87 seniors in the graduation class. Five got diplomas and 82 got "Certificates of Completion".

    This is being referred to as the "Paper Plantation". It is better for students to drop out and get into a GED program so they may seek other forms of education, later in life, if they desire to do so. All 50 states have "Certificates of Completion or Attendance".

    Please pass this information along to EVERYONE you know who has school age children. Clergy, please preach it from the pulpits. Our people MUST know this information. Thank you & stay blessed.

    in the early 20th century, america was an industrial power- factories were everywhere. the owners of this industrial goldmine complained that the labor force was overqualified for the jobs inside the factories; they were 'too smart'. there were too many engineers. the owners needed workers who were smart enough to operate the machines but not smart enough to question or challenge the management for better pay, working conditions, vacation etc... so they're solution was to 'dumb down' the populace. they did this by controlling the curriculum inside the schools, beginning with the education of the teachers at the policy making level through their non-profit foundations, e.g., rockefeller, carnagie, ford, pugh etc... in other words, the philanthropic work that these trusts do is a smokescreen to obscure their true agenda. their real mission is to infiltrate, manage and control all the vital institutions of this country. by placing key individuals who are sensitive to their cause in the area of education, they have effectively assumed control of the content of the textbooks- meaning, it matters not how dedicated a teacher is, how sensitive to the needs of our children he/she happens to be. they, in order to receive a paycheck, must teach the lesson in accordance with the lesson plan which is given to them by the principals, who receive it from the superintendents, who receive it from the chancellors, who receive it from the mayor (in the case of new york) who just happens to be a billionaire zionist jew who does not give a damn about your children or mine- who incidentally is a part of the power structure which builds prisons and need prisoners for those prisons- where do you think they get the prisoners...??? school...!!! and one other thing- it is no wonder to me why so many 'teachers' who advocate the gay lifestyle can be found 'hanging around the school yard'... they are there to corrupt and misguide those of us who are most vulnerable... and if what is going on in the home does not keep our children focused on what is positive and correct, the effect is devastating and longlasting. it doesn't matter that anyone thinks they have 'chosen' for themselves the debased behavior of the gay lifestyle. they will be allowed to flaunt themselves and they're wayward ideas before a segment of the population which is least likely to question it, simply because they have not developed the speaking skills necessary to challenge an authority figure in a classroom setting. this is why 'johnny can't read'. if he could, they would have spent time teaching him- instead, he is 'warehoused'. and those of us who are 'gifted', are herded into 'special education', in an attempt to discourage the pupil from acquiring a thirst for knowledge. i do not accept the notion that 'teachers', man or woman can have an 'after school program' with our children and be sincerely interested in their intellectual capacity... it does not add up.

    i would venture a guess and say that 95% of our problems as a people can be traced to the lack of education of our people- and 100% of that is completely within our control. when we were educating ourselves in those one room schoolhouses, we were producing engineers, scientists, mathematicians, musicians, artists, doctors, wives, mothers, husbands, fathers and the list goes on. and the best thing about it was we all lived together on the same block or in the same community- now that i live in the suburbs, johnny will never see a man that looks like him that he can model himself after... what johnny sees is a babysitter by day and a pedophile afterschool...

    i do not advocate joining the military or many of the other activities that one would be excluded from should they accept a 'certificate of completion' under the no child left behind act. however, i do think that it is wise to know what the consequences of accepting such a contract implies or means.

    peace be upon you

      The certificate of completion thing should be eliminated completely it serves no purpose. Also people don't realize why school is more philosophy than skill based. Capitalism can't have too many people educated, working, or getting paid a lot of money because if that happens the "dream" part of the ameriKKKan dream is lost. Capitalism at its core NEEDS a master/slave relationship. If it can't have this then it won't "work". ameriKKKa will never make all of its economic opportunities available to everyone that's why most people who "make it" know something that was never taught in school.

      This is really good.....I've never seen half of this work in middle school because of the no child left behind grant we were still "learning" multiplication......the other children would call me the smart girl because I knew it while they struggled.......the only reason why I knew it was because I learned it in 2nd grade when I was supposed to......I am no smarter than anyone else, I just work hard and look outside the used to make me angry and frustrated until I found out is you that has to make your own revolution........

      A certificate of completion seems like a label put on a person indicating that no more money should be invested on trying to educate this person, and that she/he is doomed to be a garbage collector. It is practically a label that reads Sub-Human. What a scary concept!

      Education is equal to freedom. Freedom from poverty, freedom from modern day slavery.

      One thing I have to disagree with is that a YM does not have to model himself after somebody of his own race. He can model himself after another human that can be a role model no matter the race. If a person of another race has good qualities, we should strive for our child to model himself after that person.

      All this supports my belief that schools are NOT failing our students; they are doing exactly what they have been re-designed to do, which is cause them to fail. Incidentally, i disagree that students lack the vocabulary to question gay life/teachers. Historically, we were given that vocabulary by christianity and biblical scripture, which is always used to argue against same-sex activities. From 15 years of clasroom experience, i can say with certainty that Afrikan youth are sensitive to any attempt to guide them into gay lifestyling, and will question that attempt. What gay educators in the classroom model is NOT "come be like me" behavior, but i represent another facet of human sexual realities, acceptable or not (enlightenment is about being aware of the surrounding reality). Of course, there are exceptions, and you will have gay educators with underlying agendas... They are the ones needing removal. Informative blog entry, though.

      i can only speculate, as i am not in the classroom, from the perspective of the 'communist rules for revolution', where youth are targeted to bend their attitudes and principles. i respect your honesty in that you acknowledge the need to monitor gay educators who bring an 'alternative lifestyle' agenda to work with them. but the point of this blog is to inform our people of the 'deliberate dumbing down' of our children... it is not an accident that so many of them cannot do basic mathematics and are functionally illiterate. at some point we must ask ourselves if turning our children over to our oppressors for their 'education' is something we want to continue doing... i say it is outright foolish to expect those who enslaved our foreparents to 'educate' our children beyond indentured servitude... no people in their right mind would do such a thing. i appreciate your insight as someone who is gay and a teacher.


      check out what norman dodd had to say about the TAX EXEMPT FOUNDATIONS and the role they played in this fiasco- also check out charlotte thompson iserbyt who was a senior policy advisor in the dept. of ed. in the reagan administration. dodd headed up a research team for the reese committee back in 1954. check out house resolution 217 from the 83rd congress to see what they thought of the carneghie, rockefeller, gugenhiem and ford foundations involvement to conspire to comfortably merge russia and the u.s. and who controls russia...??? if i have my facts straight, i say russia and germany and poland are jewish strongholds. it gets deeper still... check out this dude named benjamin bloom and the book he wrote: the taxonomy of educational objectives- where he states: the purpose of education is to change the thoughts, actions and feelings of the student. i am not making this up. i am not that clever. this is not my opinion. this is the documented, historical record.

      As a product of both private and public school education I have always been against the nclb act it forced teachers to teach so as to prepare children for exams. Teachers were so busy prepping us to pass some silly exams so their district can get some money that we never truly learned a thing when i went to private school these PRIVILEGED WHITE students were exempt from state exams. According to the school their curriculum was more advance than that found on the exams. At this school I was not prepped for no exam at the end of my school year. Instead teachers themselves prepared the exams based on what they taught not the other way around. Teachers tried to feed me lies when trying to teach me how great the explorers and christopher columbus were. But teachers were also able to teach I was able to learn so much more then my counterparts in public school. It was in this environment that I found my passion for fighting social injustices. I was disgusted by the fact that these few 500 hundred kids were priveledge to such an education while thousands of others were doomed to be dumb down. Why should people have to pay $16000 a year for their child to get a proper education? Every child should be educated and nurtured but our society is set up in a way so that we fail our youth we feed capitalism the poor that it needs because in order for capitalism to strive the poor must get poorer and grow in population while the rich get richer. Its the sad truth which is why I believe we must take it in our own hands and spend time with our children read to them educate them about their history about their culture. Teach them to be proud of who they are and strive to live righteously.

      Black americans have no history, you can see it in Africa. Some have their native language, but colonial power from Europe have taken over.. many places they speak France,English,German,Portuguese... the fight doesn't start in America, it start in Africa and to the rest of the world...

      The united state government, with the european goverments, need to be brought to justice, and the UN need to sanction them.. they are racist, where is the justice UN? Where is the security council and their veto rights?

      The way to make Black people stronger, is by rejecting the white people, and make places for black only!

      Its true that private school are much better the public school.. but the society that the white elite have build, makes it impossible for poor black people to enter.. thats how you keep black people as slaves, to educate them to be slaves.. sad but true..

      I can't follow what your saying because there is alot of black american history in america if you look for it. In fact there is a black man in history that I would give credit for the victory at Yorktown in 1783 his name is Prince Estibrook Layfaette. He was the first double agent in any history.
