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
